Great Styling Secrets for a Beautiful You

Confused about your looks? Want to know some great tips to look chic and stylish all the time? Well here are some great styling secrets that will help you achieve the desired effect. 

 

 

Choose colors that complement you, wear a flattering color next to your face. For this you do need to know which hues work best for you but that should not restrict you to a limited number of colors. Hold up colors close to your face to see which ones bring out your skin tone, eye color and hair the best. Experiment and add colors to your wardrobe!

Accessorize Well, without adding too much bling, after all you do not want to end up looking like a Christmas tree. The idea is to either focus on dress or accessories and not on both. If you are wearing something simple team it up with a statement necklace, bold jewelry, a bright scarf or a stunning clutch. On the contrary, if your dress has too many embellishments or heavy embroidery go low on jewelry. After all accessories are to add a bit of sparkle and not to overwhelm!

 

Play up Your Best Feature, and dress for your body type. Make sure that you highlight your assets, be it your long legs, lustrous hair or something as simple as gorgeous smile. You don’t have to do something too dramatic to show off your best feature, rather just make sure that your look enhances it. Don’t let anything overpower your asset.

 

Stock up on Classics because trends come and go. One of the first steps to building a classic, timeless look is getting off the fashion fad track. Trend-proof your wardrobe and develop a lasting, timeless style with essential pieces that will keep you looking fabulous for e.g. a strand of pearls, bright scarves, black trousers, or that evergreen ‘ little black dress’.

 

Experiment The idea is to push the limits of your wardrobe and experience innovative looks. Try brighter shades if you dress in sober colors, go for a skirt if you are a jeans girl, get a new pair of heels and do away with your shoes. Don’t follow models and actresses blindly, because most often what they wear is impractical and uncomfortable for you!

 

Be Bold, break the rules and make your own statement. Add a dramatic touch with smoky eyes, metallic dress glamorous accessories or statement jewelry. But do remember not to over do it!

 

Oodles of confidence and a killing smile are the assets which will differentiate you from the crowd. So, put your best foot forward and win all hearts.

Right Hair do, after all at the end it’s all about the hair. Don’t go over the board with a complicated beehive; rather keep it simple if you have beautiful, healthy hair. Try out some chic hair accessory for that stunning affect!

 

Don’t end up being a fashion victim, find you own unique look and your own signature style. After all what is more important is to be comfortable and carry yourself well rather than be a drama queen straight from the red carpet.

Hottest Fashion Trends to Beat the Chill This Winter

sweater-dressJust because it’s winters, doesn’t mean you have to look plain and dull. Get ready to stay warm in style this season and beat the cold with hottest trends. The trendiest looks of winter demand colorful choices, architectural clothing shapes and bold combination of different pieces. Here are some useful tips to help build your fall wardrobe.

Add Colors When it comes to colors there’s no bigger hue than purple this winter! Though blacks, whites and grays go great this season but a splash of red and purple here and there adds a special glamorous touch. Wear contrast colors and make a style statement with a printed shirt or pant (use one at a time). Just because this is the coldest time of the year it does not need to be dull and boring, so be bold and play with colors.

Layers The trick to a stylish fall is to experiment with layers. Try a solid color under-shirt, a button-down over that, and perhaps even a sweater or vest on top. Let the layering do the work of keeping you warm and look for a more stylish, lighter alternative to the life-preserver overcoat.

Jackets and Coats
Cropped jackets, blazers, military or wrap coat, you have loads of options to choose from. Pick one that suits your body type and is comfortable for you.

Sweater Dress The sweater dress is the new sensation this winter. The fact that you can wear it many ways is the main advantage. Pair it up with opaque leggings and boots and you are ready to go. Team it up with sheer stockings and statement necklace and be sure to leave a mark!

Leggings Tights and leggings are going to be really big this winter! Sheer black leggings, opaque tights in glossy and shiny style, colored and patterned tights are some of the most popular ones.

Mufflers Stoles and Scarves The trendiest way to beat the chill is to experiment with scarves and mufflers. Try tying it in different styles and opt for a variety of prints. A silk scarf is a great accessory but if you are more practical go for hand knit woolen mufflers.

Shoes When it comes to footwear, women have loads of options in winter. Booties, ankle length boots, knee length boots are all hot, and no matter what your heel preference is, there’s plenty of variety!

Accessories Accessories are going to be really bold this season. Look out for statement necklaces, chunky earrings, narrow belts, smart clutch bags, and stone studded jewelry.

Interesting Jewelry Info

Hi Everyone!

Here’s a quick and interesting history about jewelry. Thought you all would enjoy it.

The word jewellery is derived from the word jewel, which was anglicised from the Old French “jouel” around the 13th century. It has also been suggested that the word is derived from “Jew”, as the Jews were important jewelry artisans of that time. Further tracing leads back to the Latin word “jocale“, meaning plaything. Jewelry is one of the oldest forms of body adornment.

Recently found 100,000 year-old beads made from Nassarius shells are thought to be the oldest known jewelry.

 

Although during earlier times jewelry was created for practical uses such as wealth, storage and pinning clothes together, in recent times it has been used almost exclusively for decoration. The first pieces of jewelry were made from natural materials, such as bone, animal teeth, shell, wood and carved stone. Jewelry was often made for people of high importance to show their status and, in many cases, they were buried with it.

 

Jewelry has been made to adorn nearly every body part, from hairpins to toe rings and many more types of jewelry. While high-quality jewelry is made with gemstones and precious metals, there is also a growing demand for art jewelry where design and creativity is prized above material value. In addition, there is the less-costly costume jewelry, which provides beautiful designs at affordable prices.
