Deodorants Effects

  • Stains on your clothes- Deodorants are not meant to be sprayed on your clothes. A deodorant often takes an average of 30 seconds to absorb adequately into your skin. If your deodorant comes into contact with your clothing before it’s absorbed into your skin, it can bleed onto your shirts and tops and stain them. If you apply too much deodorant it makes it more likely to stain your clothes. White stick deodorants or the roll-ons can create rather stubborn stains that are difficult to remove. Some deodorants can even have a lightning effect on colored fabrics or a yellowing effect on white fabrics. So, therefore make sure whenever you spray a deodorant on yourself, your skin shouldn’t be covered with clothes.
  • Deodorants can cause skin discomfort- Deodorants are applied to keep away the smell caused by the sweat bacteria, sweat is actually odorless, but the bacteria that eat it

Wayfarer

These iconic glasses were first introduced in 1952 by Bausch and Lomb, Ray-Ban’s parent company. Originally, these glasses were made using plastic, which made them very popular instantly. Wayfarers became extremely popular after being adopted as trademarks by the icons like Bob Dylan and President John F. Kennedy. Even the pop star, Michael Jackson has regularly been seen wearing the wayfarer eyeglasses throughout his career. As these eyeglasses were made using new plastic molding technology, they marked the transition between the period of eyewear from thin metal frame to an era of plastic eyewear.

It is believed that it is a particular style that spread faster than wildfire. The 60’s way-farer were glamorous, they were over-sized and had rounded bottom edges. The 80’s wayfarers were about a simple design that was usually showcased in black. As the 1990s began, the frames became unpopular but wayfarers were brought back into fashion …


Dresses For Body Type

Slender & Lean

Add some curves! You can afford to do “sexy”. Try a dress that has a bustier or a corset with just a little hint of lace. Also, if you feel comfortable, opt for dresses with deeper necklines. Toy with different fabric textures and sheens. Do a lustrous fabric with a lot of shine to help glam your look. Pockets at the hip will also help to accentuate your curves and add shape to your bottom. Peplum dresses will also have the same effect as pockets. Lastly, try belting your dress. Belting will cinch or “carve” out your waist and add those feminine curves you crave!

Tall, Long-Waisted

Opt for a sleek silhouette. Too much fabric can look bulky and sloppy. Break up your waist with colors. Pick something that will flare out from your natural waist. Accentuate your legs, but shy away from minis. Too much leg …


Autumn Fashion Must-Haves

Tops

The key to keeping warm in the unpredictable autumn months is layering. Build your way up from a simple camisole to a jumper or cardigan that are also easy to remove if you get too warm.

Tops can be simple T-shirts or blouses in natural fabrics like cotton and linen. Synthetics aren’t the best for layering. Every woman should have a few fitted T-shirts in block colours, as well as a few oversized tees to mix and match with skirts, leggings or trousers.

In terms of knitwear, buy jumpers and cardigans in cashmere or merino wool for both the comfort and warmth factor. Good quality fabric will last you for many years to come, and these are essentials that will never go out of style.

Bottoms

So many women make the mistake of associating autumn with trousers, and forget about their pretty skirts until spring. But there’s no reason …

Accessories For Plus Size Cocktail Dresses

  • Belts – If you have an hourglass figure, don’t wear a sack; accentuate your waist with a belt, whether you’re wearing a skirt, a dress or jeans. A large buckle will draw the eye away from whatever you’re trying to hide, or you can use a patterned scarf as a belt with jeans.
  • Scarves – A brightly colored scarf will cheer up the dullest dress, and can be worn around the neck or draped over the shoulders and will draw attention away from a large bust. Long scarves will elongate the body.
  • Jewellery – A brooch pinned near the neckline will again attract interest away from your bad points. Wear beads that fall in the right place; longer strings look better on plus size ladies with wide necks. To make people look at your face not your body, wear dangling or sparkling earrings. Don’t go overboard on necklaces if your
