Top Ten fashion trends for Spring 2009

 

2009 Spring Trends

2009 Spring Trends

Spring is here at last with some exciting trends-a lot of which we’ll all be able to pull off, no matter what our body type. I think the look in general will be soft and extra-feminine. Check out some of the most interesting trends:

 

  1. Spring is all about colors, so make sure you wear plenty of it. Vivid colors like hot pink and electric blue will be really big.
  2. In vogue this season is the little white dress for its glamour quotient.
  3. Feminine floral prints are also going to make a comeback this spring and butterfly motifs and prints will also be quite popular.
  4. Accessories are going to be really big this season. Opt for long oversized necklaces, big bangles and bold jewelry, stylish handbags.
  5. Jewel encrusted clothing are also going to make a come back and will not be restricted to evening wear. In 2009 they return brighter, bolder, and more elegant. This time pieces are not just embellished but often completely encrusted by jewels; the feeling is luxurious, exotic, and yet the glamour remains somewhat understated.
  6. In Spring fashion tends to get a little more revealing; the combination of sheer and opaque fabric will work wonders. 2009’s sheer pieces are a mixture of the soft and feminine.
  7. Flairs, ruffles and bows are also smart options for spring. Look for bows at the shoulders and hips and ruffles at hemlines.
  8. High waisted skirts and pants will make a style statement this season, so make sure you own them.
  9. Single shouldered dresses and tops as well as asymmetric shoulder-lines have made a huge return in 2009. Its versatility and endless possibilities to wear it makes it one of the hottest trends.
  10. Bohemian look will make a powerful statement this season. The best way to pull this off this Spring is to pair a bohemian styled piece with something a bit more conservative like a beige skirt or vest.

Each new season brings with it a sense of excitement. I’m looking forward to vivid colors, bold accessories and feminine prints. Do visit us at www.CarmaWorld.com for an exclusive collection of apparels and accessories and let us know your take on these trends?

Great Styling Secrets for a Beautiful You

Katrina Kaif the Style Diva

Katrina Kaif the Style Diva

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.

Way To A Beautiful Glowing Skin

beautiful skinWinter is a beautiful season to look forward to after the scorching summer heat but it can take a heavy toll on your skin, if you do not take proper care. Here are some do’s and don’ts, which if properly adhered to not only help you sport a glowing complexion but let you enjoy this wonderful weather too.

Short Lukewarm baths, will do wonders in keeping your skin hydrated and you’ll save a bundle on heavy creams and moisturizers. You can also add a tablespoon of honey in your last rinse for soft and supple skin. Use glycerin based soap for best results.

Exfoliate; a good body scrub can help remove dead skin cells from your body. Add this to your cleansing routine once a week. Not only will you feel fresh but your skin will be free from all that old dry cells.

Use sunscreen, don’t say goodbye to your sunscreen just because summer is over and it’s cloudy now. Use a sunscreen with at least an SPF of 15 or more.

Drink lots of water, keeping yourself well hydrated is the key to a healthy skin and a more wonderful you. Make sure that you drink at least ten glasses of water everyday.

Moisturize well, immediate application of olive or coconut oil after bath is extremely beneficial as it locks in the moisture.

Include right kind of fats in your diet, especially Omega-3 fatty acids and fish, fruits, flax seed, almonds, walnuts etc

Dress in layers, so that you don’t overheat your body and remain warm at the same time.

Grab those gloves; don’t overlook your hands and feet. Use good quality gloves and socks so that your skin doesn’t itch. If you have a sensitive skin, wear cotton mittens beneath your gloves.

Oil your hair regularly, as scalp too needs special attention to brace the chilling winds.
Cover your hair with a scarf or cap and restrict direct exposure as much as you can.

Don’t:

– Avoid hot showers, however tempting they may be. In spite of being very appealing after a long, hard day, all it will do is dry out your skin and make you even flakier.

– Soak in too much of winter sun, however relaxing it is, all it will do is burn your skin.

– Overuse heaters & blowers, as it takes away the much needed moisturizer from your skin.

– Drink hot cups of dehydrating tea & coffee.

-Lick your lips often as it will chap your lips even more.

Last but not least, don’t ever forget to wear that killing smile on your face….nothing looks more beautiful than a smiling face.

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.
