Style Advice

In the Style Advice column I aim to help my readers to understand personal style in general. Here I provide you with tools and ideas to perfecting your own look. Today’s fashion and latest trends give us an amazing opportunity to get inspired and create. Nowadays we can mix and match styles, colours, textures etc. Style advice is a great source for discovering how to stay trendy and put together a good look. Also, I talk about different body shapes and what clothes suit them best. Not only this, but I also show you how to style particular pieces of clothing depending on the occasion. Furthermore, I discuss the rules of colour blocking and how to choose perfect accessories and shoes for the desired look. I believe that it’s important to invest time and some money to create great looks that will impress and make you feel confident.

5 Autumn Fashion Essentials 2018

Summer has quickly faded and like a flash, fall rushes right in. With the welcoming of fall comes the question: what 2018 autumn wardrobe essentials do I need? Every #woman is different.  We all have our favourite brands, styles, colours and shapes to pick from. But at the same time, we want to be a true #fashionist. The autumn essentials 2018 that I will be highlighting include #kneeboots, #hats, #leopardprint blouses, #mididresses and checkered #coats in hopes for you to choose a couple of trends and styles that you would like to include in your wardrobe. If you are unable to find the style, shape or colour that I talk about in this article, remember there are plenty of styles out in the #fashion world to take your pick from. KNEE BOOTS Knee boots are fun, modern and #trendy. These #stylish boots available in different shaft heights, heel widths, colours and styles. A no-brainer – black suede boots with a small black heel would look amazing worn with a midi dress. But, if you wish to stand out then think about white leather boots with a stiletto style heel, paired with dark blue jeans and a white sweater. For the #casuallook pair black suede boots that have a wedge with an all-black #outfit that has a white undershirt hanging below the top shirt and throw on a floppy hat to keep the sun away. A comfortable look: brown leather small heel boots showcasing black leggings, a long white T-shirt coming off one shoulder, a sweater and a brown beanie. MIDI DRESSES­ These style dresses have existed for decades but became increasingly popular in #London in the 1960s and have seen an increase in popularity. These gems have side pockets, short sleeves, semi-fitted style, V necklines, tie belts at the waist, centre cut necklines, zip fastens and come in fashionable colours and prints. Grey knee boots and a V-Grey knee boots and V-neck midi dress would create a versatile outfit.  After finishing your work day, put on some silver jewellery and a hat. Head over to a trendy restaurant to meet friends. Enjoy! CHECKERED COAT The checkered #coat has long been a staple in the #fashion world. Colours range from the black & white style to pink & black. The colour schemes are endless and the fashion designers are taking advantage of that, making this item a true 2018 #AutumnEssential item to have hanging in your closet. One of my faves, Versace designed a wool tartan plaid coat with mink fur that I adore. It’s a long coat with detachable collar and full-length sleeves – absolute #musthave in every #fashionista’s wardrobe. Wearing this over an elegant evening gown would definitely make you the talk of the evening in how great your sense of #style is. LEOPARD PRINT BLOUSE Another staple is the #leopardprint #blouse. I love pairing it with the black high-waisted trousers and leather boots with metal details from @isabelmarant. I think it’s an easy look that will work for some offices and going out after work too. Why not?! Adding gold and silver jewellery or a handbag will emphasise the leopard print and adds a spotlight on you that shows how #elegant you are. Try to stay consistent with the colour of the accessories you choose – you will look more #chic! HATS Hats are so versatile that they stay trendy which feels now like forever. And they are able to brighten up any look within seconds. For example, the Beret style looks darling with a soft colour blouse or sweater, dark blue jeans and black knee boots. A classy hat like the one I am wearing makes any #outfit looking #edgy. On the other hand, the best thing about a beanie is one size fits all. The choice is yours! CONCLUSION With so many new styles and designs available these days, whatever trend you decide on adding to your wardrobe, is great. Just remember, the more comfortable you feel in what you are wearing, the happier you are P.S.

Autumn 2018 Female Fashion Trends

Summer felt like it would never end. However, Autumn is finally here with a set of amazing fashion trends bringing back some elements from the eighties, some elements from the British heritage, and a number of modern elements all combined together. New fashion trends for Autumn 2018 include new ways to wear your jackets and coats (which can, of course, suit everyone on any budget), along with a number of popular prints and colours. To introduce you to the must-try fashion trends this Autumn, I have compiled a comprehensive list below. WEAR EXTRA COATS Wearing a single coat is now considered old fashion. Recently, wearing extra layers of coats on top of a coat is not only considered very classy but also allows one to pull off a tough hipster look. However, many people may not be comfortable with wearing 8 layers of coats due to the bulk. Although, you…

HACKS FOR BEING FASHIONABLE ON A BUDGET

I’ve written before about looking your best and saving money and one of the key points I made was that you need to focus your style and target your buying. So bearing that in mind, here are some further tips to help you create your look without breaking the bank. VINTAGE AND CHARITY SHOPS Good vintage shops are a pure delight, you never know what you are going to find.  Search out the vintage shops in your area and talk to the owner about the kind of things that you’re looking for, that way you can get the heads up on items that you might be interested in and you can save yourself time by not also having to pop in and check.  Charity shops are also great, but you have to be prepared to spend a lot more time sifting through stuff.  When you do find something special it…

Discover The Best Formal Dress Styles For Pear-Shaped Ladies

The pear shape is one of the most common shapes for women and there is so much choice when it comes down to choosing the perfect dress. If you’re still on the fence about whether you are pear shape or not, simply check if your hips and bum are wider than your shoulders. Most likely, you have a smaller bust compared to those with an hourglass shape, but there may be exceptions, like well-known A-listers Beyoncé and Kim Kardashian. It’s great to check out your favourite celebrities and their style. If you start looking at the gowns they wear for inspiration on the styles that suit you, you’ll be heading in the right direction. The Main Thing To Look For Ideally, when you search for trendy 2018 homecoming dresses, you want to find the right balance between the top and the bottom half of the dress. The top half should…

4 Ways to Protect Your Eyes This Summer

We all know that it’s important to protect our skin in the summer, as we’re bound to spend more time outdoors enjoying the sunlight but what are you doing to protect your eyes? Your eyes are just as easily affected by the sun as your skin, so it’s important that you know how to protect them while you’re enjoying the weather and taking part in summer activities that have the potential to irritate your eyes too. Wear Sunglasses Wearing sunglasses is the most obvious way of protecting your eyes this summer. In the same way that not all sun creams are created equal, not all sunglasses will offer your eyes the same level of protection so don’t be fooled by a pair with dark lenses! It’s important that your sunglasses offer 100% protection against both UVA and UVB rays in order to protect your eyes from ultraviolet radiation. Wearing sunglasses…
