Revamp your work hairdos

Styling your hair for work can become a chore if you don’t get creative. But who doesn’t want to look and feel great everyday at work?! So let’s help you get innovative by churning up some new hairstyles from the boring old ones! Here are 5 different styles.

1. Ponytail with a twist

Get this hairstyle by dividing your ponytail into two sections. Twist one section and wrap around the other section to create this casually twisted ponytail.

2. Low knot

You can wear this on either side or at the center, and go polished or messy too. We say, just go with your mood!

3. Knotted ponytail

This is a cross between a braid and a ponytail. It works well with different hair lengths too. Separate your hair into two parts. Knot it and move on. You can repeat this process depending on the length of your hair.

4. High ponytail

Want to flaunt your chiseled jawline and cheekbones? The high ponytail is just what you should try. This also works well for thin hair.

5. Side braid

Enhance the simple braid by flaunting it to one side.

So spice up your work hairstyles everyday!

Shopping tips for petite body

When you are shorter you feel conscious  all the time about your looks. You try out all options to look tall. And most of the dress won’t fit you. It will be extremely big or loose.

Here are few tips to follow for petite body type to look perfect and make you feel confident.

Prints

Choose smaller motifs in your printed dress which should not overpower your frame. Big prints can make your structure look smaller.

Armholes:

When shopping for tops and dresses make sure that your armhole doesn’t expose any of your bra.

Shoulder placement

Make sure the top of your sleeves sit on the body tops of your shoulders, rather than drooping down the arm.

Neckline

Waistline

Skirt hem

Its key to stick with points that come with an inseam length as close to your correct inseam as possible for optimal fit.

Shape

Avoid anything too boxy or with loads of excess fabric, unless you can add shape with a belt around you waist.

Jeans Guide: How to choose a perfect fit for your body type?

Jeans are a fashion staple in every woman’s closet, but the style of the jeans you wear can make or break your look. If you choose your jeans based on your body shape, you’ll be able to confidently put your best foot forward whenever you step out of the house.

All of us have different shapes, sizes and styles, so finding the right pair of jeans can be a task. Luckily there are tips and tricks for each of you for finding the perfect pair of jeans! All you need to do is follow a few of these steps and remember them when heading to the changing room of your latest denim department.

hourglass

Hourglass Bodyshape

You ladies are a lot luckier with this body shape as you can get away with most things and look great. With a hip to bust ratio of 50/50 and a slim waist, it’s all about the styling and keeping your proportions balanced. Here are some great jeans to look for:

Skinny Jeans – These are the most flattering on hourglass shapes. Your chest and hips are in proportion with each other already so showing your legs off in skinnies only highlights that point. Bootcut jeans can actually overwhelm you and hide your frame.

Higher rises – High rises are recommended because the waistband will sit at the smallest part of your waist, this will also give the illusion of an even slimmer middle.

Medium size back pockets – Don’t go too big or too small with your back pocket sizing, it’s important to enhance your butt so choose wisely!

Skinny flare – If you want to do flared jeans, I would say choose a pair that are tight and skinny all the way to the knee and then give off a slight flare. This is much more flattering.

Flares – If you are a much more curvy hourglass that above and carry a lot of weight on the hips, a flared jean will really help balance that out.

Rectangle Bodyshape

Most often like the super model shape with extra height, long legs and a straighter hip area, you can find it hard to get jeans to fit in length and be flattering and feminine. Don’t worry though, there are plenty of choices for you. Look out for these:

Inseams – If you want to go for a smart look, long inseams are the way to go as they will make you sleek and clean. If you prefer something more fashionable and love the look of jeans with ankle boots, go for a cropped skinny and cuff them with your ankle boots. This will give more depth to your shape and lessen your height a little bit while looking chic.

Skinny Jeans – Skinnies are always your best friend as they show off your figure beautifully. Just be sure to pick the most flattering pair for your butt and thighs.

Skinny Flares – You can also get away with skinny flares as you have the height to pull it off. Don’t do baggy flares as they will overwhelm you, so make sure the flare starts below the knee and the fit above is tight.

Rises – If you want to show off your height, go for a high rise, but if you want to make your legs more proportional, a low rise will work wonders.

Boyfriend Jeans – Luckily, you can get away with boyfriend jeans and make them look amazing! Go for a slimmer fitting boyfriend and it will look great.

triangle

Triangle bodyshape

With more curves around the hip and butt and a smaller upper half, it can be harder to find jeans that balance out your proportions and are flattering rather than awkward. You look out for jeans with these fits:

Bootcut or wider flares – These will help balance out the hips and keep your legs in proportion with the extra fabric around the calves.

Long inseams – Having a longer length means you can wear heels under your flares and bootcut jeans. This will of course elongate your legs and make them look slimmer.

Higher rises – You should buy jeans with a higher rise as they are very balancing to your shape.

Larger pockets – It’s important to enhance your booty since you are blessed with it, so look for larger back pockets as small ones can make it look bigger.

Stretch denim – Always look for stretch denim as it will hug your body better, creating a more sleek silhouette. Plus, it’s not as restricting as rigid denim.

Boots – If you do want to go for a skinny jean,  you should tuck them into boots as it will help balance out the hips more and create a better shape.

Round Body Shape

For those of you who carry your issues around your tummy area and always struggle to find jeans that are flattering or give you that shape you are looking for, there’s definitely options for you too! Embrace your body shape and work with it rather than against it. These are some tips to look for:

Skinny Jeans – Skinny jeans can look really good when they are paired with a floaty, gypsy style top as this will hide your problem area but the skinnies will still be fitted, creating a balanced look.

Rises – If you are more curvy and you want to hide your stomach, you should opt for a high rise jean as this will hold everything in. If you are a more slimmer apple shape then lower rise jeans can give you a more curvy appearance.

Trouser Jeans – If you want to balance things out, you should go for a trouser style jean as the wider leg from hip to foot will help with proportions.

Plus size fashion: Reality V/s Myths!

Exploding fashion myths for plus size women is long overdue. For years, full-figured women have lived with the same rules, avoiding many of the styles they really want to wear. They are fearful that something will make them look larger, broader or heavier. Too often, plus size women dress much as our mothers and grandmothers did, choosing black over bright colors, long skirts over short ones, and spending day after day at home in shapeless house dresses. It’s a new season, ladies, and time to explode these myths!

MYTH 1#

Plus size women should never wear horizontal stripes.

REALITY 

In case you haven’t looked lately, horizontal stripes are everywhere. They’re showing up in dresses, blouses, sweaters and ponchos. Stripes are big on the fashion scene and horizontal, vertical and diagonal striped are almost equally popular.The best way to wear horizontal stripes is to break up the pattern with a blazer or colored pants.

MYTH 2#

Black is the only flattering color for fuller figures.

REALITY 

Black is not the only choice for plus women. Black slacks and pants can pair with brilliant blouses and sweaters for amazingly flattering looks. Black jeans, jeggings and leggings can be worn with a spectrum of plaids, paisleys, prints and patterns by women of all sizes. Black dresses are an integral part of nearly every woman’s wardrobe and are flattering to all sizes. Wearing black is fine, but limiting yourself to black is discouraging. On the other hand fact is  all the solid, bold hues are equally slimming.

MYTH 3#

Peplums add volume.

REALITY 

A streamlined pencil skirt with a peplum creates an hourglass shape. The beauty of a peplum is that it creates the illusion of a waist for those who might not have much definition in that area, and for those who do have a waist it’s one of those styles that accentuates the waist and forgives the muffin tops / tummy area. The hem of the peplum should hit just above the fullest part of the hip for optimal visual impact.  The eye will follow the hip curve as it bends towards the waist and disappears into the peplum.  Regardless of tummy or muffin bulge (which disappears under the peplum anyway), this is the most pleasing hem placement for that reason.

MYTH 4#

Patterned pants draw attention to a heavy bottom.

REALITY 

Black is slimming but gets boring! If the cut of the garment flatters your figure, you can wear just about anything you like including prints. When wearing patterns, opt for ones in a larger scale which camouflage lumps and bumps. For the ultimate slimming effect, look for patterns with darker backgrounds.

Must have Fashion Tips for Plus Size

1

Curves are hot! To make the most of it, avoid anything that makes you look bulky. You can focus on smoothing out the lumps and bumps. Here’s how you can…

DRESS FOR YOUR BODY SHAPE

3

The first thing is to identify your body shape. Every woman has her own identity with a unique body shape that needs a specific set of styling and clothing strategies to look their best. Knowing your body shape will help you in accentuating your assets and downplaying your pitfalls.

EMPHASIZE YOUR ASSETS

5

Use clothing as a strategy to emphasize the assets of your body.  This will balance your proportions, alongwith making you look attractive and feminine.

CHOOSE THE RIGHT INNERWEAR

2

Your inner clothes act like the base coat of your makeup. If this goes wrong, everything goes wrong. Make sure you opt for inners that provide a firm support to your body structure. Bad fitting inners can make one look sloppy. Hence, opt for good fitting underwired bras & high waisted panties in firm fabrics.

GET THE RIGHT FIT

4

The fit of your clothing is extremely important. Tighter clothes will spill out the bulges. On the hand, very loose clothes will exaggerate the weight. Therefore, it becomes essential to pay special attention to the fit of your garments. Choose clothes that are not too tight, nor too loose. They should gracefully compliment your body, no matter what shape or size you are.

 

 

 

 

Magic styling tips for plus size: Part 1

 COVER FOR THE BLOG

One of the best ways to flatter your curves is to dress up monochromatically, which means wearing a combination of light and dark shades of the same color family.

 

monocrome

When one wears contrast colors on the upper body and the lower body, it cuts up your frame visually into two parts reducing the vertical length, whereas in monochromatic color scheme, the color shades are similar, giving you a longer vertical line visually.

Hence, monochromatic dressing helps you look taller and leaner, besides making you look more proportionate. Try out these combinations and many more like these:
