Wear Sneaker Wedges Efficiently

Casually

You do not have to run out and buy an outfit just to wear this new trend. Everything in your closet can be paired with them starting with jeans. Whether they are skinny, straight leg, flare or boot cut-which will make your foot look smaller- jeans are a staple that can go with any trend. For a more contemporary look, pair sneaker wedges with your favorite pair of colored skinny jeans, embellished top or chunky knit sweater and leather jacket. For a weekend relaxed look, one may go with dark denim boot cut jeans, t-shirt layered with a button down and/or favorite sweater.

Work

Women have been wearing sneakers to work for decades. They are the equivalent of wearing flip-flops with dress pants. The extra incentive with wedges are it gives you enough height to not let your dress pants touch the ground. Depending on your place of employment’s dress code – dress pants, a crisp white button down and blazer does not look bad paired with black sneaker wedges. If you forget to change into your


Benefits of Handmade Shoes

The first point to be noticed is that ready made shoes are made with the help of machines and all of them are made in a common standard. You can avail only those sizes and shapes that are manufactured by the company. But in the case of handmade ones, you are having the choice to make a shoe which is tailored especially to the shape of your legs. This is highly beneficial in the case of people with some medical conditions. Not choosing to wear the right size can also adversely affect your health.

The main reason for the high price of handmade shoes is that they are of high quality. The machine made shoes are mass produced and the chances for errors to creep in are high. It is difficult to check all the aspects of the shoe in a factory setting. Some branded shoe manufacturers do that, and for the same reason their products cost higher than most other footwear. The footwear which is handmade is of high quality because the laborer takes


Stay Stylish and Warm for Autumn

Typical autumn colours are making a welcome return for both men and women this year. Dark reds, rusty oranges and block colours of black and navy are all over the catwalk right now. The use of block colour is great, because it provides a blank canvas to which you can begin to introduce different combinations of accessories. This is where you can really start to get creative. Team together a hat, scarf and pair of gloves in a matching colour, (a rich deep red works particularly well with a block navy blue outfit) and then try contrasting different textures to create a multi-dimensional look.

Casual and cosy oversized knits are proving to be just as popular this year as last, and they’re likely to stay on trend right through to winter. Knits are particularly versatile and are a great way to stay both warm and stylish when it’s cold outside. They look great when teamed with a pair of black leggings, but if you really want to make a statement, try styling with a pair of cable-knit tights. Grey is

Pick the Skirt Based On Body Shape

Pear Shaped – for a pear-shaped woman it is best to avoid the more clingy type pencil skirts as these often attract attention to the thigh and hip area. Instead an A-line long skirt is able to give a more attractive look with its ability to fit snugly at the waist area but is able to skim over the hip area. Also, a full-skirt also offers a great fit with it skimming the hips to provide a nice balance to the body. Aim to avoid the skirts that are either gathered or full at the hip, such as tulip-type skirts and peplum skirts as these have the potential to draw attention the hip area, and make you appear wider.

Hourglass Shaped – it helps with this body shape to go with styles which are tapered slightly less in the hemline. A pencil skirt can look great provided that it is able to hug the curves, rather than squeeze. A high-waist skirt is often able to highlight the waist area and break up the longer body if on the tall side.
Apple Shaped – if a larger sized stomach area sees to dictate the style of clothing worm


Wear Printed Leggings

Leggings are often considered as a fashion item associated with the eighties era and only to be worn in situations such as doing Jane Fonda’s workout DVDS. However, over the years leggings fashion has slowly but surely come back on trend and many of the top retailers now stock the garment in every pattern, print and colour.

Often what can be a problem when many consider how to wear the garment is whether they are deemed as casual or not. They can often be associated with everyday wear or even for gym wear which can put people off the idea of wearing them for night time occasions.

However, since the development of styles such as wet look leggings or leather leggings, more and more people are wearing the garment to even go clubbing in. Worn with a dressy top and with sky high heels, leg wear can help to accentuate the legs by both making a person look taller and making the legs look more toned and structured.

There are a variety of prints available on the market today. From everything to American flag print to moustache print. A recent trend that has hit various


Perfect Suit For Women in The Office

The first step in choosing the perfect suit is deciding on the fabric. It needs to be versatile throughout the seasons, and be comfortable as well as hard wearing. High-quality worsted wool blends are a popular and versatile choice. Try to avoid blends with a large amount of polyester as this can cheapen the look of suit and make it uncomfortable to wear. Be sure to crinkle the fabric to ensure it does not remain crinkled, as you want a fabric that will bounce back throughout the day.

The colour, and pattern are equally as important as the material, as they can go a long way to how the suit looks, and how the suit makes you appear. Black, navy and gray suits are all popular and classic colours, as are pinstriped or plain patterns. If you do opt for a pattern, ensure that the patterns line up on the seams of the shoulders and lapels, and ensure that the pattern is one that will flatter your body shape.

Choose a style of jacket that will suit your shape and fit comfortably. The single breasted jacket is a classic style, or you also have the option


Recycled Glass Jewelry

Glass is 100% recyclable and can be reused to make a variety of objects. For every ton that is recycled, more than a ton of raw materials needed to create new is saved. Using cullet, or recycled pieces, takes 40% less energy than making new glass, as cullet melts at a much lower temperature. It also eliminates the million year wait for each bottle or jar ending life in a landfill to breakdown.

If you are a jewelry fashion aficionado you will agree that recycling at its best is the use of recycled glass for jewelry making. The idea is simple: take trash that will take a million years to break down in a landfill and turn it into exquisite pieces of wearable art. The process of using recycled glass for jewelry is eco aware chic. Using old windows, drink bottles, dishes, cups, and jars the material is turned into cullet. In one studio an artist cuts the glass, assembles the pieces into a design, than fires it in a kiln to fuse the pieces together creating a unique design. Another artist uses a three foot tall magnifying glass to focus sunlight (3,000 degrees!) to melt the


Designer Perfumes Tick

Designer perfumes are popular mainly because of the name written all over the bottle. Who wouldn’t want to say that his perfume is a Gucci, or a D&G? Surely, the great names in the fashion industry wouldn’t dare sign off their names on the bottle if the perfume is not good enough for their taste. Since their name is on the line, they are out to make sure that it’s the best one you’ll have thus far.

There’s an air of elegance in every designer perfume bottle. And since we’re talking about fashion as far as perfumes go, sophistication does play a very important role. And the big names in the fashion industry are the ones who know most what sophistication means. People trust big ticket designers for that.

Even with the fact that designer perfumes are not cheap, the market for these perfumes is still huge. People are buying because they want to enjoy the sheer goodness in these scents. And they especially want the ones created by the biggest names in the industry. For a lot of people, looking good and smelling great doesn’t really have a price tag. They’re willing to go high

Tagging

The word graffiti, singular graffito, is used to describe every type of unauthorised (and authorised) Street Art. There can be no doubt that there are many who would rather it didn’t exist. Strong emotions caused by the appearance, seemingly miraculously, overnight of yet another tag, passed on the way to work, give a clue as to how important this form of self-expression is.

But there are many places in the world that hold events to celebrate this form of art. Whether it’s in Bristol, UK, or Melbourne, Australia, there are large sections of society that believes this form of art benefits a city. So where did it come from, this need to express oneself in public sometimes causing outrage to building owners and sometimes ending in court?

The term graffiti once referred to the inscriptions and figure drawings discovered by archaeologists when investigating ancient sites of interest. Perhaps the most famous would be the catacombs of Rome and in the devastated city of Pompeii. The modern usage of the word has grown to include any form of graphics found in and around the streets and alleys, the skyscrapers and road bridges of most modern cities.


Wear on Casual Fridays

  • First of all, read your employee handbook to find out what it is that you can and cannot wear to work. It should be written down there what would be allowed during the days designated for dressing down. You should do this first because you would not want to risk your employment because of clothes, would you?
  • Try to ask around from employees who have been with the company for some time if they could tell you about their experiences when dressing down casually. Ask them about the kind of clothes they normally wear during those times.
  • Less formal is probably a better term for the kind of clothes that you ought to wear on a casual Friday. If you wear a suit normally, then you should go down to wearing polo shirts and slacks. The important thing is that you should still be professional in your clothes.
  • Try not to wear the things that you would sport when doing the things that you are passionate about. This is a common mistake of a lot of people who think that they could finally show that they’re some biker dude, by wearing their leather outfit complete
