How Can I Update My Fashion?

Dressing can be more of a headache than we realize. You might have an event to attend or meeting with friends, but nothing you put on works. Our clothes are important to us and you want to look good. It’s difficult to find our fashion sense when lost on where to look. Your closet is outdated with clothes you’ve kept since the wedding or back in high school. Now, you’d like a style and your current clothes are no longer doing it for you. Here are some ways to update your fashion.

DIY

Years ago, everyone what running to wear a certain brand name that appeared on their clothing. Today, it seems we’re in a world where everyone wants to create their voice through their outfits. Styles are being created with mismatch particles of clothing many of us thought never went together. Try your own do-it-yourself fashion if that’s what makes you happy. No one said you had to fall in line with a fashion trend. You might consider adding gold beads to your wardrobe. That is always a classic look.

Online

It’s best to use the internet to look at different styles of people that either look like you or have the same body. Too many of us spend time looking at clothes that fit perfectly on someone else. Yet, you know the outfit you’re staring at won’t get past your hips. Browse online to find clothes that catch your eye. Do searches on what’s fashionable for your body and skin tone. This is a great help when you don’t have the skills to match colors. Research what goes with certain shirts or pants. You may find some articles of clothing just don’t go together.

Friends

Find and talk with that friend who always seems to look great in their clothes. Ask them to help you with your fashion style. They probably can take you shopping for those perfect outfits that work best with your look. Let them see the inside of your closet. This way they can assist in helping you throw away clothes that simply don’t work for you anymore. These types of people can help you reshape your entire wardrobe. Call them before going to an important event where peers might be present. Make sure you send a photo of what you plan to wear. Listen to their tips, so you can at least dress without making additional fashion mistakes.

The gathering is not only a reason to blow off some steam but also to make a lasting impression outside of work. Whether you’re having a party at the office or celebrating success at your favourite bar, dressing well will help you stay on top of your game. Dress to impress with our curated office party style guide.

Outfits

The first step is to decide what you’re wearing. Tricky, we know. Here are some styling ideas to put together a dazzling ensemble.

 

  • Choose Your Attire Based on the Occasion

 

If you’re having a get-together Diwali party at the office, sport an elegant kurti for women. Accentuate your look with a pair of silver oxidised jhumkis and a pair of beaded kolhapuris for a traditional touch.

If it’s a Christmas party, get into the spirit of fun and merriment. Keep things simple with a quirky green and red Christmas sweater over your white shirt and a pencil-fit skirt. Add some funky Christmas-themed accessories into the mix and give an otherwise formal work outfit a casual, breezy touch.

pic1

There is something charming and adventurous in a city break away from home, even if by definition such trips are short in length. They are almost always spontaneous, challenging, romantic and full of amazing surprises. Discovering a new city, a new culture, style, and getting immersed in a strange and unique environment, getting a taste of a place’s most cherished landmarks and entertainment facilities – all make a city break a fun adventure to embark in wholeheartedly.

Some cities, however, and mostly the ones on the Old Continent, are also romantic by nature, compelling you to dress appropriately for the occasion. If you are a bohemian at heart, and you plan a quick getaway in an old, fabulous and romantic city in the world, these are two boho outfits you should consider taking along.

Pack Light but Get These 3 Stylish Accessories to Make All Your Travels Fabulous

Traveling is an important part of our lives and an experience one shouldn’t avoid. But when it comes to traveling, many trade style for comfort in all aspects. Once upon a time, men and women used to travel wearing tuxedos and evening gowns. While our fast paced world doesn’t encourage such inclinations, this doesn’t mean a modern girl shouldn’t pack a few stylish accessories to take a short city-break or a week-long vacation. After all, to look good means to feel good – even if you walk unbeaten paths or enjoy hip summer resorts.

There are plenty of resources on how to travel and pack light for a week’s vacation and you should follow such expert tips and tricks. Fortunately, some stylish accessories for stylish travel girls are weightless but so important! They add just a bit of sparkle and glam to a traveler’s outfit, even if you prefer jeans, boots and tees or boho summer dressed and strappy sandals. Let’s see together three

such fabulous accessories you just have to take along to look great and feel just the same!

1. A Pair of Nude Flat Strappy Sandal

If you are headed to an exclusive beach resort, an old European capital or a safari adventure at the end of the world, a pair of nude summer strappy sandals will be your best friend. Nude shoes in general are a girl’s best companion as they match any type of outfit and they make your feet look longer and slimmer. You can wear practically anything with them and they will make you look effortlessly chic.

  • Tip for picking the best nude sandals: when you buy nude footwear make sure the shoes shade matches your own skin shade. If you intent to get a good tan or are already featuring a gorgeous summer tan, make sure the sandals’ nude shade is equivalent to your skin’s one.

Family Easter Outfits at Kohl’s

Spring is the perfect time to refresh your wardrobe, and with Easter looming, it’s a great reason to drag even the most resistant men in your life out for at least a small upgrade, true?  We recently headed to Kohl’s to see what we could find for both of the men in my life to wear for the holiday this year.  The smaller one is usually pretty compliant, it’s the bigger one that can be somewhat of a fighter, lol. They both agreed, however, on getting new pants and nice shirts.  We got them things they could wear not only on Easter, but for future events.

20150314_135829Now that I look at it, it seems they are almost matching, though not intentionally- one blue on top and beige on the bottom, the other reversed, ha. My son decided he wanted to go in shorts (can you tell we’ve had it with winter and he’s looking forward to warm weather?) and my husband decided to get new jeans, which he could use. They both picked out their outfits without the other one seeing- my son was with me, and the husband was in the men’s department all by himself- I was amused when I saw how similar their selections were when we met in the boy’s department 😉

Every woman is unique and different, so why give her a cookie-cutter, run-of-the-mill gift?

valentine's day gifts

Endless Jewelry introduces the limited edition ENDLESS LOVE COLLECTION – unique and contemporary love-infused charms to show some LOVE in a customized and very special way.  I personally am in love with these bracelets- so pretty, unique, and customizable. They are also soft and warm on your skin, and don’t jingle- which is different then nearly every other kind of jewelry out there.

“Every woman has a distinct sense of style when it comes to both love and her jewelry choices,” says Jesper Nielsen, CEO and Founder of Endless Jewelry.  “Our new Endless Love Collection offers a modern, yet totally sentimental, and very ‘gift-able’ option to find something the special women in your life will truly love and claim as her own.”

It’s easy!  Just head over to the website, choose the color of the bracelet you think she will like best, and how many times you want her to be able to wrap it (one, two, or three times around her wrist).  Then you choose from the available charms, which are available in gold or silver (some also in rose), to reflect her personality or remind her of a memory you share.

Pack Light With Land’s End

Disclosure- Some of the products in this post were given to me in order to facility this review, others were my own.  All opinions are mine and honest.

6 20 14 and waterparks 217Recently, we went to Europe for a few weeks.  I had to pack light, and be able to make what I packed count.  No one wants to be lugging many suitcases around, and it’s best to make everything that you bring able to mix and match, getting the most from each garment. One of my favorite places to shop has always been Land’s End, because clothes are versatile, durable, and long lasting.  They are also great with exchanges, so if you don’t like an item it’s easy to return- even if you have worn it. I love that about a brand, because so often you don’t know how things will fit or wear properly until you actually wear them.  Catch 22, but Land’s End makes it easy and worry free.

Norway, Packing, Products (canon small cam) 033I exclusively packed Land’s End clothing for my trip.  With the exception of my sneakers, walking sandals, and bathing suit, it was all Land’s End, all the time.  Sticking with the brand made it easy, since all the colors matched, the fabrics worked well together, and I really do like the durability they commit to for travel (and everyday wear as well, but I can be abusive to things when I travel).  I chose to stick with the primary colors of navy blue and black, with colors and patterns that matched the basic items I already owned or purchased.  I was also given several new review items from this season’s new line, which complimented what I already owned beautifully. All of the items are well made, pretty, easy to wash and wear (even on the go), and fully functional as well as classically stylish.  Very easy to love, and the reasons why I come back to Land’s End again and again.

First the Dahlia Womens Skirt in Boysenberry. I loved the clean lines and versatility of this A Line skirt. I can wear it shopping, out to dinner or even just around the house. It is made with 100% organic cotton and is Fair Trade Certified. I love knowing that every skirt sold helps to end poverty in the community that produced the skirt. Retailing for about $55, the Dahlia Skirt is timeless and will be a great addition to your wardrobe.
