22 Jul

The Maxi dress is a big hit for the Summer, I personally love this style because its perfect for all shapes and sizes. Its keeps you cool during the warm weather and it can easily be a casual or dressy look. Cotton is for a daytime look and usually silk and rayon for the evening.

This is a great style for the Summer. You can easily dress up or down depending on your footwear and top. This style looks great on mostly any shape or size women. In my opinion if you want to get colored jeans get them now. Because they won’t be in style next season.

 I am definitely a t-shirt and jeans kind of girl. So, this style watch above is my kind of style. Ofcourse, this style can be worn by any shape or size women. In my opinion a great t-shirt is a classic piece!!! You can never have too many. Depending of the fabric and the cut you can dress it up or down. Chole Sevigny is a great example of dressing up a simple t-shirt (Lanvin).

I spy with my fashion eye a classic trend and the perfect detail to any garment…. the bow.  I know I usually say I love the trend. But I honestly loves bows. When I was in school I used them in mostly all my garments. A bow adds such a feminine detail to any garment. Whether a dress or a simple pair of jeans. This detail works for any shape or size women. Don’t be afraid to buy garments with bows…. it’s up to you on how big you want to go!

I spy with my fashion eye a NEW trend Blouson Dress.  Blouson is a garment or dress having a close waistband which falls in a fold with material over it. I really like this style because it’s very flattering for all women. This detail is pretty expensive because there is extra fabric used. But you can always find a bargain.

The 80’s style is NOT going anywhere. Gwen, Sienna, and Paris are definitely proving that point. I like Gwen and Paris style of shade better than Sienna. Her shades are too old school for me. 

Will you be sporting Turquoise Shades??? 

 

STYLE WATCH *** DRAPED DRESSES

5 Dec

In my opinion this is a possible trend but lately draping has played a major part in dress details. A trend is an article of clothes or an accessory that has a fashion life spam of over a year or over. Draping is 1. a process that is used to make clothing which entitles using a dress form or a person and draping the fabric over the body to create clothes: 2. Draping is the way the fabric falls on the body which creates a flowy affect and may give the illusion of pleats. Just a little fashion terminology.    

The draped dresses can  be worn by any shape or size women. For the smaller women it gives the greek goodness effect and hides any imperfections. For the plus size women the draping hugs the body in the right place, it hides imperfections, and still allows a curvy women to show off her curves. Above are some celebs shows us how its done. Below are some draped dresses for all size women.     

Will you be wearing the draped dress???
