Ready, Set, Go!

Believe it or not, but Summer is practically here. With the warm weather comes less clothes. Ladies, I want to show you how to dress for the summer, look good in your clothes all while still keeping it classy!

Ps. I recently discovered Polyvore in the last few months and I have fallen IN LOVE with the concept. I have created a few summer looks for the ladies that compliment various shapes and sizes.

This outfit compliments both the apple and pear-shaped woman.

Image

This is a good outfit for the hourglass, apple and rectangle-shaped women.

Image

This is also good for the rectangle-shaped women. the peplum top will give the illusion of shape oppose to straight up and down.

Image

This a-line skirt is very universal and could be worn by pretty much any shape woman. As for the crop top, use good judgement as to if you feel your mid-section is ready to be exposed.

Image

In a previous post, I broke down all of the different wide-leg pants for your shape ladies. This is another universal outfit but just adjust the pant to best compliment your shape.

Image

This is a good set for the pear, apple and hourglass shaped women. I would suggest rectangle-shaped women to stay away from this because it would not compliment your straight up and down figure.

Flashback Thursday

It’s here again, Flashback Thursday. I enjoyed writing last weeks post about fifties fashion. This week we’re going to stay in the same decade, the classic fifties. This week, instead of focusing on the fashions worn during this era, we’re going to take a look at hair. I’m excited! The fifties brought forth a whole new hair game! During this era, new hairdos were created. Over 50 years later, celebrities are still rocking hair styles that were very popular during the fifties. Check them out below! Gwen’s look was my favorite, and surprisingly, Beyonce was my least fav.

Flashback Thursday

Welcome back to Flashback Thursday’s. Today we’re going to take a look at the classic styles of the 50’s and how we can bring the 50’s back to life. This was a very feminine era of fashion for women. The waistline was a huge issue for women during this era.

Pencil skirts were a huge trend during the 50’s

Then there’s my favorite, the a-line skirt and dress:

Men during the 50’s took one of two directions: clean cut suits or the greaser-rebel look.

Flashback Thursday

Welcome to Flashback Thursday’s. Today we’re going to take a look at how we can incorporate the free-spirited style of the 70’s into our looks today. Early 1970’s fashion was a fun and free era for fashion. Chest hair, medallions, butterfly collars, bell bottoms, skin-tight shirts, tight fitting pants and floral shirts are just a few of the many looks of this period. One of the trends that continue to resurface in fashion is the wide-leg pant. Many designers and celebrities still rock this looks today.

Because there are so many different type of wide-leg pants, they are great for all body shapes.

Jumpsuits, maxi dresses and skirts are another way to incorporate the 70’s into your looks.

As for the guys, you can incorporate the 70’s look by wearing a fitted suit, also referred to as European cut, and a skinny tie. This is common look among men today. Although this is a widely sort after look, remember, everything is not for everyone. Guys who are heavy on the bottom (thick thighs, hippy etc.) may want to stay away from the fitted bottoms.
