Fall Fashion Trend – Take Your Jacket To The Shrink

     Fall and winter may have brought out long peacoats and trenches before, but not this year. One of the most sought-after pieces for the upcoming season will be the shrunken jacket, in a variety of styles. The difference between these new, tinier versions of your traditional autumn and winter favorites is their length; cuts are the same as traditional coats, but they hit slightly above the waist and often tie or button under the chest. The beauty of these new pieces is that they provide coverage in colder months without sacrificing sexiness or femininity.

    The perfect jacket is one of the most important elements of your wardrobe, and with so many shapes and fabrics available this fall, it would be a crime to choose just one. The ever-present denim jacket is back with a new vengeance. Instead of the washes of last season or bulkiness of years before, this season’s denim jacket is soft, body-conscious and far more feminine than the traditional denim jacket. Corduroy and leather are back again, cropped and ready to be worn over anything from your favorite dress to distressed jeans.

     A new take on an old favorite is safe, but take advantage on the amazing new fabrics and styles the end of the year has to offer. Brocade is big this season and some of the most sought-after new jackets are made of the rich, detailed design. Many of these brocaded, boudoir-style jackets are trimmed in rich velvet or lace piping and can be paired with tweed trousers of you favorite jeans. Many of these new jackets are cut at the hip but some are reaching even higher—cropped just below the chest (H & M). Made in rich, new fabrics like tweed and velvet, these jackets have mixed a traditionally matronly fabric with a cut and cling that makes it youthful and sexy. Even faux fur and metallic finishes are adorning the newest trend (Allen B. by Allen Schwartz).

     Getting short isn’t the only new addition to a cold weather favorite. Sleeves are getting revamped this season, retro-style. Traditional coat fabrics like houndstooth are being used in a new way. Bell sleeves (think bellbottom sleeves, cut below the elbow) mix cropped length with a traditional fabric and throwback to 70s style (Banana Republic). You’ll also see a mini version of the military jacket this season; a cropped, girlie take on the long, heavy style, adorned with brass buttons and zippers (Bebe).

     The beauty of these new jackets is the versatility they bring to your own style: mix them with denim, dresses, skirts and trousers. Since there isn’t one specific style or fabric that will reign this fall, all styles and sizes can take advantage of a new take on an old favorite.

Appearing Girlish By Dressing In A Girlish Style

     People want to remain looking youthful for as long as they can, and they would do anything to attain it at whatever price they can afford.  A lot of them do not acknowledge that sometimes, all it takes is rethinking one’s wardrobe and dressing young.

     As we women reach our 30s, some of us start to see signs of ageing, especially on our skin.  The fine lines, wrinkles and crows’ feet begin to appear.  If we have had a child already and we have not really focused on taking care of our bodies, we would notice a certain thickness around the middle, not to mention a few sags already forming here and there.  Plastic surgery may be the answer you need to get your youthfulness back, but sometimes, just dressing young cuts it far enough.

     Dressing young does not mean following current fashion trends too closely.  No matter how trendy or fashion-forward we are, we would all reach a certain age where some fashion trends just do not suit us anymore.  Dressing young is not an excuse either to pull out whatever remnants of the wardrobe we had as teenagers from storage and start wearing them again.

     When we say “dressing young”, what it means is updating our wardrobe with a few select items to keep us fashion-forward and adding a bit of spice to them, but without disturbing our own signature style.  Because that is what we should do when we start reaching middle age.  We should start adopting a signature style instead of being conscious about fashion.  In more ways than one, this is the “dressing young” that we need to keep doing.  Our signature style should show in our choice of outfits, but we should nonetheless keep moving forward with our choices.

Dressing Young with Jeans

     Jeans are the staples when it comes to dressing young.  Unfortunately, jeans are also the most unforgiving to a figure that has been thickened by age and perhaps maternity.  If your jeans do not fit you, they will show every curve that must be hidden rather than revealed.

     There is a trick to dressing young with jeans, however. If your middle has already thickened and your waistline is no longer as slender as it used to be, what you can do is to look for a pair of jeans that flatter your figure rather than stick to the old styles that you used to wear.

     A pair of jeans with a bootleg cut will balance out the thickness in your body and will make you look voluptuous rather than dumpy.  Pair it with a top that drapes and flows about you, and you would be good to go.

Pastels for Dressing Young

     Perhaps nothing beats aging more than by dressing in light colors.  When we were younger, we were compelled to wear darker colors like navy, black, maroon or chocolate brown because we wanted to be taken more seriously as we begin our careers.  As we ride through middle age, however, we should start dressing young by lightening up.

     You do not have to give up your dark-hued suits for this, however.  Perhaps all you need to do is to pair them with a pastel-colored blouse with a few frills.  Perhaps a few choice and colorful accessories would do it.  Take care not to overdo it, however.  You still want to look sedate and competent in your corporate duds rather than bubbly and flashy.

     On casual days and on weekends, however, when you can shed off your suits, an awesome way of dressing young is to wear a pastel dress in light fabric, especially during summer.  Tie back your hair in a ponytail and forget about putting on makeup for a day, except for a little face powder and shiny lip gloss.  This is the best and most inexpensive way of beating aging, and you do not even need Botox for that.

How to Choose Hot Dresses Online to Match Your Style

     One thing many ladies love about shopping online is the wide variety of dresses that are available. If you live in an area where there aren’t many places to shop, then online shopping might be your ticket to finding hot new dresses that fit your style – and your body type.

     Many online shoppers have abandoned the garage sales and turned to convenient Internet shopping to find great deals on dresses, lingerie, evening wear and more! You too can find almost any dress style, size, color and material online and usually at a tremendous discount.

     Instead of searching desperately through endless racks of clothes that aren’t even your size, you can find specific dress styles and sizes with the simple click of a mouse! But first, you must know how to shop online. Here are some excellent pointers to finding that perfect dress with the style and price you want.

Find Dresses through Online Searches

     If you already know what type of dress you want, you can narrow your search through the search engines by typing in specific keywords related to that dress style. For instance, if you want a large trapeze-style brown strapless dress, don’t only type the words “brown dress” into a search engine. You’ll get millions of results showing all types of brown dresses. Instead, type the entire phrase in quotes to get more specific results. If you want a small red stretch gown, type in the entire phrase in quotes.

     Another way to do specific searches is to shop at an online mall for dresses and other ladies fashion items. Many “dress-shop” malls offer a variety of products including dresses, plus size fashions, lingerie, watches, shirts and skirts, underwear and thongs, Capri pants, denim wear, evening wear and more. Some malls even give tremendous deals and have special offers such as a “free panty with a dress purchase” or some other similar discount special.

Ordering the Right Dress – The First Time!

     One problem that an online shopper faces when searching for great dresses is that, once dress arrives, she finds that it doesn’t fit right. Then, it’s a hassle to ship it back to the company or manufacturer if returns are accepted.

     One solution is to take a few hours and visit the nearest department store in your area. Try on some dresses to find styles and sizes you like. Take note of the materials, sleeves, measurements, and sizes of the dresses as well. Even if the dress is high-priced at the store, you might be able to find the exact same style online at a much cheaper price. Doing this will save you time and money in the long run because you’ll know if you like the dress and style before ordering.

Gifts for the Holidays or Special Occasions

     Another advantage of shopping online for dresses and other hot fashion items is you can also buy gifts for others at a great discount. Holidays, birthdays, anniversaries, thank you gifts, etc. – there are gifts for every occasion. And, you’ll save time and money because you can shop from your own home any time of the day!

     Using online resources to buy hot and fashionable dresses offers a great opportunity to find the styles and sizes you need without spending a fortune.

Must Have Clothing for Spring and Summer

     Spring is in the air, and summer is just around the corner. It is time to update your wardrobe, and get some clothing that say spring. We have put together five must have spring and spring into summer clothing:

Fun t-shirts. Nothing says spring and summer like fun, bright t-shirts. Pink and red t-shirts, with interesting sayings, flowers and embroidery say spring like nothing else. Get those fun t-shirts and start wearing them to get the spring to come sooner.

A Spring Jacket. Everyone should have a cool spring jacket to wear. A jeans jacket is good and timeless. You can also get a fun corduroy jacket, or even a blazer.

Get something that is fun to wear and versatile at the same time. You may want to get a jacket that you can wear with jeans and with a fun summer dress.

Fun Skirts. Springtime is not springtime, until you see everyone wearing colorful spring skirts. There are so many styles and so many colors that the fun spring skirts come in. We love fun skirts in many different colors, so pick the colors that work best for you and get yourself one or three skirts.

Dresses. Just like with skirts, lots of women love wearing dresses in the spring and summer. Do you have a few dresses already? They are fun to wear, and are great for those warmer seasons.

Lighter Pants, Capri and Shorts. We love jeans, we really really do. However, sometimes it is just too hot to wear jeans. And if it is, you have a few different options.

     If you must wear pants, there are lighter pants, made from lighter materials than denim. You will not be as hot wearing them.

     Capri, or shorter pants, became extremely popular a few years ago. They come in many different colors and lengths, and they are made from different materials. Pick up a few pairs of capris, they will become staples in your spring and summer wardrobe.

And, if you like shorts, they are also great to wear in the summer.

Tank Tops. Looking into the summer, a few tank tops should always be in your closet. They are very versatile – you can wear them with other tops, under shirts, under jackets, with dresses, etc.

     What fun clothes will you wear this summer?
