Shabby Chic Style

To be able to dress in shabby chic style, you have to think antique. Choose antique-looking dresses and blouses. You can buy these at second-hand stores or you can just ransack the closet of you mother or grandmother. Wear something in brown, bronze, black, and gold. Neutral colors such as gray, charcoal, beige, old rose, navy, burgundy, camel, mustard, chocolate, ivory, lavender, and yellow are also favorable. These colors represent the shabby chic style. Avoid bright colors as much as possible. You may also grab some faded jeans since faded hues are a part of shabby style’s allure. You may want to choose skinny jeans, though. These jeans are casual and very stylish. They are not sloppy either. If you prefer skirts, nonetheless, choose pieces that are flowing.

Another aspect of the shabby chic style is layering. Layered clothes make this style unique and distinguished. However, even if the shabby chic style does not conform to the trend, it still follows the basics of aesthetics. So, you have to be more concerned on looking good than being trendy. Layer your shirts, camisoles, hoodies, and sweaters; but you must always consider the color, the texture, and the weight of the fabrics you are using. You can even layer your accessories and jewelries.

Speaking of accessories and jewelries, antique earrings best enhance the shabby chic style. Choose pieces that are big and brown or bronze and dangling. Pair them with your old camisole or skirt. You may also ask for your mother’s old bracelets and rings. In addition, look for unusual jewelries in flea markets, thrift stores, and even online stores. Seed bead bracelets, chandelier earrings, lockets, ribbon chokers, and plain bands are the finest. Express yourself through your bracelets, rings, earrings, and necklaces.

Dress Styles Tips Make Look Thinner

Style #1 – Maxi Dresses

Maxi dresses are a popular choice in ladies clothes. These dresses are long and flowing. In most cases, they fit closely in the bust and then flow to the ankles or the floor. This style is flattering for any body type and skims over the hips, waist and thighs.

Style #2 – Empire Waist Dresses

Another great style that will help you look slimmer is an empire waist dress. This ladies wear style has a high waistline that is right below the bust and then the bottom half of the dress skims over the waist and hips. Since they create a youthful, beautiful shape, they look great on all body types. The empire waist dress looks especially good on women with pear or apple shapes.

Style #3 – Sundress

This dress looks wonderful during the summer and includes thin shoulder straps, a wide neckline and a medium length. For women who don’t have good waist definition, a belt can accent the waist area. Women with a pear figure can go with thicker fabrics that don’t cling to the thigh area.

Style #4 – Color Block Dresses

Color block dresses make it easy to look a few pounds lighter. Many dresses are designed to add definition to the waist, providing a dress that looks great on most women.

Style #5 – Cap Sleeve Dresses

Since cap sleeves go over the shoulders and upper arm, women who are a bit self-conscious about their arms or shoulders will love this dress. This style makes shoulders and arms look narrower and they can look great on women with any shape.

Wholesales Handbags

Not only do you have trouble with picking out an outfit, but even when you find something you like, you realize you don’t have a handbag to go with it. So you go back to your closet to rummage around for something to wear. You probably have more than enough stylish and trendy items of clothing in your closet, but you can never have too many handbags! Any day is a good day to get a new one, whether your boyfriend agrees with line of argument or not. So what can you expect to find when you go looking for the perfect handbag? Let’s start with the materials. It’s true that leather is still the number one material for handbags. Durable and stylish, its delicate shine will give you that special touch of elegance. Whether it is glossy classic leather or the matte, soft, casual kind, you just can’t go wrong with leather.

Still managing to keep its popularity, the snake-skin look is still in fashion, giving your style a hint of wildness and adventure. And for those women looking for a more personal style, a romantic lace satchel or an economical, relaxed, woven paper cross-body (looks like hemp, very neat) might be just the bag for you. Then again, feminine shell materials, such as mother of pearl and polished horn, which have been adorning more and more bags recently, add a gentle touch of grace to your look. When it comes to handbag colors, you should be ready for anything. You can find handbags in neutral colors like beige, gray, or muted hues of red, blue and brown. Dark colors like gray, black and brown will always work with a basic, simple outfit. But if you want something eye-catching, red and blue is a good choice and are easy to find. You can also pick from various intricate floral designs, particularly if you want a casual tote-imagine a mixture of the jubilant atmosphere of the seventies and twenty-first century boldness and playfulness.

With fashion, you can be sure to find the most convenient and conventional hobos, convertibles, docs, shar peis and bowlers. Big or small, one of these bags is sure to make you feel unique and stylish. The cute and romantic bohemian bag is for those who are extra sweet. All handbags can come with additional buckles and straps, and imaginative, swirling designs. Every lady’s dream is to have one closet for clothes, a second for shoes and a third, large one just for handbags. If you are a true handbag enthusiast, you might consider buying your handbags in bulk. Buying from a wholesaler is a great option for less expensive, beautiful fashion items for resale or for personal use.

Leather Handbags

Carrying a large bag often indicates a woman on the go, needing to always bring a bit of her world with her as she goes about her busy day. A small clutch shows a more carefree, whimsical attitude, with no need for functional practicality.  A beaded or silk bag can signal attendance of a formal event, while a cotton tote likely indicates a day of errands. A boldly patterned or brightly colored bag often shows an artistic or adventurous side. Those who opt for a simple tried-and-true black piece give off an air of chic, classic elegance.   Stitching and metalwork can mean the difference between a bag appearing expensive and luxurious, and it looking cheap and poorly constructed. Obvious label marks of course also can show different styles and price points. Structure or lack thereof is another major indicator of a woman’s personal style. There are numerous details that together determine the overall effect of a woman’s handbag. These various characteristics come together to define a purse, and consequently to dictate where, when, and by whom it should truly be worn. A purse in itself divulges a significant amount of information about its owner. Yet its appropriateness to the outfit selected and the occasion attended are just as significant in determining the final effect. A beautiful day tote can look entirely wrong and out of place if worn to an evening event or with a dressy ensemble. Similarly a beautiful crystal encrusted silk clutch can look cheapened and just wrong when worn with a pair of informal flats or on an errand to the supermarket.

For some women it can be quite the daunting task to properly select the numerous characteristics that must come together to equate to an appropriate and well chosen handbag.   Yet as the weather gets colder, many women are looking for this year’s new winter leather handbag. Luckily, there are some simple rules that will help any woman to determine the best option for her next handbag purchase.   One of the central rules governing all handbag purchases is to ensure that the leather used is of high quality. It is important that the leather be supple, soft, and of course, genuine. Good leather handbags will be made of quality calfskin and will appear smooth and luxurious. It is important when making a handbag purchase, to ensure that the leather will be elegant looking. Given that most leather purses have less detailing, the quality of the material of which they are composed is of the utmost importance. Differences in leather quality can make the difference between the appearance of Milan and that of China.

While in years past, women have tried again and again to save a bit of money through purchasing faux leather products. Yet these purchases invariably turn out to be a major mistake. The stitching quickly frays and the detailing often becomes haggard looking in just a short period. Thus the alternative to leather turns out to be not only unfashionable, but also uneconomical as women are forced to purchase a replacement. When purchasing a new leather handbag this winter it is thus important to first ensure that the leather is both real and of high quality.

Another cardinal rule for leather handbag shopping is to search for styles that will be both trendy and classic. A well chosen bag should both reflect modern design innovations, and simultaneously give an air of timeless beauty. Great bags are a product of their times, but they are also able to be enjoyed for all time. As a high-quality leather handbag is durable enough to last a lifetime, it is always a good idea to ensure that the purchase of a great piece can be enjoyed by generations of girls in the family to come. Who doesn’t love the thrill of coming across one of grandma’s great vintage bags? Handbags are not merely fashion, they are art, and they should be enjoyed and passed on in the same way.
