Look Fabulous Wearing a Long Skirt

One of my favorite trends about this season, it the femininity and elegance of the 50’s style long dresses.  This trend was huge in the runway but it might be a bit difficult for some people.  Here are some tips to look fabulous wearing this trend

  • Because the skirt is such a huge focus on the outfit, try matched with an understated top. I love how Louis Vuitton match’s the skirt with a sweater.
  • The best length  is just a little under your knee
  • Kitty heels or flats are would go fabulous with this look!!!

..:: Beauty Tip ::..

We all know how important hair is. Having a beautiful hair is as important as having a great outfit. Because of this we torture our hair so much, all for the name of fashion and style. We can find many conditioner, oils, shampoos, and many other products that promise to help our damage hair, but the truth is on till we are able to wash our hair the right way (yes there is a right way), It is going to be difficult for your hair to look its best!
  • Start by brushing your hair before you get in the shower.
  • Use only a quarter size amount of shampoo.
  • Use your finger, not your finger nail to knead the scalp.
  • When using conditioner start from the roots till ¾ from the way up. Do not get any conditioner on your scalp because it causes greasy roots.
  • Leave conditioner on for about 5 minutes.
  • Finish washing your hair with cold water, to seal the cuticles and shine.

5 Little Tricks to Look Slimmer

Dakota Fanning, Jennifer Garner, Sarah Jessica Parker

 

* Nude Shoes– I have mention this trick before; wearing skin tone shoes elongates not only your legs but your body. During the winter, try to match your pants with your shoes. In the case of jean thought Brown shoes would do the trick.

Rachel Bilson and Jergens natural glow

*Get Some Color– I have to admit I use to be a bit “tanorexic”. This year I decide to live a healthier life and only use Natural Glow by Jergens (love it). The reason is that a tanner skin helps you look slimmer and reduces the visibilities of blemishes in your body.

Manolo Blahnik

*I learned this trick from the show “What Not to Wear” on TLC; Wear high heels with pointy toe. The slim look of the shoe elongates your body.

Zoe Saldana

* One tone Dress– having the top and bottom the same color makes a vertical line creating the illusion of a taller and thinner body.

* V- neckline is your BFF– the V neck cut makes your upper body the focus, at the same time elongation your body. Also V neck is flattering for every face and body shape.

Stripes

The stripes are a HUGE trend right now.  This trend is not new, one of Coco Chanel’s famous creation was the sailor stripe shirt, (one of my top 5 https://classnfab.wordpress.com/2009/10/27/top-five-chanel-timeless-creations/). Sense then the stripes have been in style, and I believe is a save to say that they will stay with us for many seasons to come.

Balenciaga

Louis Vuitton

DKNY

There are a few tricks you have to know first before wearing strips.

*First of and most important, horizontal stripe can give the illusion of looking thicker.  Try thiner stripes in areas where you are wider such as hips or bust.* If you are pear shape, wear the stripes on your upper body.  Stripes are fabulous but they also make the illusion of making things look thicker than they are.

*If you have a triangular body shape (or want more booty). Try a straight stripe skirt.
