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.

Tricks Pick Clutch Bag

The Occasion and Your Appearance

Whatever the occasion is, the most important fact is you should be unique! So consider the outfit first and then choose a clutch handbag which suits it following the entire style and colour. Pay your attention to the colours, material and style of your dress to get the best results. If you attend some social events, it will be better to carry a classic and elegant clutch bag. If you go to some casual parties, you can choose a more daring style of clutch bag to make you look lovely and distinctive.

Colours

This should be the most considerable fact when you choosing a evening bag. When talking about colours, there is no limit for the colours we can wear… But when choosing the perfect clutch bag, we should consider the colours as well as the style. By doing some experiments, you can create a unique outfit with a matching clutch bag. The current fashion trends and colours for summer are the ever popular, pastel pink with bridemaids, red and royal blue for the guests, ivory for the brides and a combination of contrasting colours like a silver dress with a red clutch bag and red high heels. But if you want to create a classical look, you can choose the traditional colours such as black, white or grey. A traditional silver clutch bag can gives you a vibrant and elegant look.

The price & the quality

This is the most head burning question the majority of women have. Sometimes you may feel, is this worth the price? Does it look great? Women are now looking for great offers for clutch bags so they can have a bigger range to choose and match with their dresses. Women are looking for a bag that fits the bill without breaking the bank and feel satisfied with their purchase.

Coach Handbags

One of the Coach Handbag styles that has grown in popularity is the Hobo style. The Hobo bag is an large bag of simple design with a strap long enough to allow shoulder carry if desired. Of course many women prefer the a more traditional clutch type handbag that is available in a range of styles and colors. Others prefer the type of bag called the tote bag, an especially extra large bag that can even be used by students to carry books. The swing style, pouch style and others round out the Couch handbag line.

Couch Makes Other Products

The Couch Company makes many other accessories. Wallets, checkbook covers, camera bags, the French purse, the mini wallet, the card case, and key cases all carry the Coach brand name and are assured of being of the same high quality standards as the world famous Coach handbag.

In the United States a handbag is also called a purse, while in the United Kingdom a purse more often refers to a smaller device used primary to carry money. A handbag in both countries is usually large enough to carry a woman’s wallet, keys, lipstick, checkbook and various items that women tend to carry around with them on a regular basis.

The Coach handbag is a name that has come to symbolize quality, and most women enjoy ownership of these handbags. If you are thinking of an appropriate gift for a woman you know, then consider a Coach handbag as a gift that says you care, and that she will use and appreciate. You can find them at most finer department stores.

Classic Evening Dress

Empire Dresses

Empire style evening dresses are characterized by a high waist and a full length skirt. The waist, which fits snuggly, is fashioned above the waistline of the wearer, usually just under the bust line. This placement is appropriate for those who wish to achieve a slimmer and taller appearance. The style is often most flattering to those who carry a bit of excess weight around their middles or who as shorter and more pear shaped in body structure though taller and slimmer women and those with flatter stomachs also appreciate the style of empire dresses.

Empire evening gowns are traditionally made from lightweight, free flowing materials like silk in order to create a light and airy appearance. They may have several layers of lightweight fabric built into their design but the skirt portion of the gown should move freely, swaying with the breeze and the wearer’s stride. This free flowing character is an essential component of the classic empire evening gown design.

While some hemlines on modern empire dresses may fall at the ankles, the most traditional skirt of the classic empire dress reaches to the floor, covering the shoes while standing and making them only barely visible when seated. These evening gowns are appropriate for any formal occasion, including everything from proms and formal dances to wedding parties and other formal social events.

Zebra Print Dresses

Would you be interested in a zebra print for a holiday? Why not a zebra print heart on a red shirt for Christmas or Valentine’s Day? You could really get crazy with this for a birthday party with a special occasion dress, paper plates, party hats, and other decorations.

Do you know anyone that is having a baby shower? Although primary colors are great for babies to focus on they are usually intrigued with the black and white design of zebra print. You may like to purchase a bib, or a stuffed zebra. Why not buy a zebra that turns into a baby’s security blanket? There are precious soft blankets, pillow cases, and travel pillows to choose from. You can even get them personalized with the baby’s name and birth date. These would make a great keepsake. If there is an older sibling maybe a backpack would be a good gift. Don’t forget the mom. You could get her a dipper bag.

On the assumption that you are the mother of a little girl how would you like to have her wear a coat or jacket just like yours? There are beautiful swing coats that are for mothers and daughters. Maybe you would rather have a bolero or a hooded sweatshirt.

Many people now carry their own bags and baskets to the grocery store to avoid using plastic and paper bags that are not good for our environment. Zebra print totes would be so much fun to use for your shopping trips.

If you decide to buy a tote bag get a zebra print beach towel to match. Now you are all ready to go to the pool, lake or the beach.

You don’t even have to get the traditional black and white. You can get pink zebra print as well as blue and many other colors.

So if you like zebra print there are no boundaries on the items you can find.

Must know about Maxi Dress

Firstly, let us describe what the maxi dress even is. The maxi is the long dress you see on a mannequin when passing by a fashion boutique. The dress is typically a draping dress that goes as far down as to your ankles (and in some cases, lower). You can now even picture why a dress like this could be worn in different ways and for different occasions.

The maxi dress can come bright with abstract designs on them. This type of dress, as you can imagine, could be worn to the beach. You can pair it with sandals or flip flops and wear a large bag. I have actually seen women wear the maxi dress even with a messenger bag. You can choose to wear a hat as well.

For a more formal occasion, some pumps would go hand in hand with a maxi dress to make you look absolutely astounding. We tend to go for a darker color in formal occasions. Black or colors like maroon gives off an strong impression of classiness. Instead of wearing a huge bag where you keep your suntanning lotions and beach towels, try wearing a clutch. With clutches, I tend to choose more neutral colors like black.

Don’t forget about accessories! They do actually make a huge difference, lets say you have an asymmetrical maxi dress, a pearl necklace would totally compliment the dress and you. Bangles can make a difference on the appearance that you’re aiming for as well, whether they’re colorful bangles or silver. Wrist watches are always welcome to the party as well. A different style of watch would suit a different style of the maxi dress.

In some cases, you could even wear a belt with a maxi. Though in most cases, this would be for the more “casual” look rather than fancy. The kind of belt that I prefer would be a thick one worn slightly above the hip. There are cases where women wear the thin lacy belts in exchange that their dress does not come with an elastic band of it’s own which is usually between the pelvis and underneath the breast area.

Silver Evening Bag

Evening bags come in numerous styles, colors, shapes and brands. You need to select one that goes perfectly with your special dress. If you have beautiful silver sequined dress it will be apt to carry a silver evening bag. The combination will be stunning and you can see every head turning towards you. You will have a glamorous appeal when you carry a beautiful silver bag matching perfectly to your dress. Silver bags have also become an important item in weddings. Especially, the clutch options for the brides. The bag will be beautifully decorated according to the bridal gown.

Silver bags are designed with great care. Sincere efforts are taken by the artisan to ensure that each bag looks stunning from any angle. The bags are beautifully decorated with a number of accessories like beads, laces flowers etc. These items add to the beauty of the bags and make it look sophisticated and stylish. They have many useful features that will be very handy for women carrying them. Some bags have straps which are made of variety materials like beads, leather and fabric etc. They also have small handles for clutching. The straps are very useful because you can carry the bag easily and comfortably. Also, they may be beautifully decorated to enhance the beauty of the bag itself.
