5 Tips for Buying a Party Dress

Women love to get dressed up for a party. Buying a party dress is part of the fun. Sequins, lace, tulle, and silk accent a dress and make a girl feel like a princess. Stylish dresses in bright colors show off a lively personality. Basic black dresses are always in style and are easy to accessorize with anything.

Finding the appropriate dress for a party has a lot to do with the type of party, a woman’s body shape, and personal style. Certain kinds of party dresses are appropriate for specific occasions. A full-length gown is suitable for a wedding, but not necessarily a night on the town. Choosing a dress that fits an individual’s style and is flattering to their body is a must when looking good is a priority.

1. Choose a Dress to Flatter Any Figure

Women have different body shapes and sizes. A dress that flatters a curvy figure is different from a dress that enhances a slim one. Picking the right party dress has much to do with knowing what looks good on any particular shape. Certain dresses, cuts, and fabrics show off different aspects of

Image titled Appear Thinner Without Losing Weight Step 5Fashion isn’t about flaunting the most expensive designer brands or having an endless wardrobe. Even with the most high end clothing you can still look terrible if you don’t know how to coordinate everything you have. Fashion is about expressing your personal style and using creativity to pull together unique outfits that you feel good in. You don’t need to dress by what the fashion magazines say, be confident in what you are wearing and be a trendsetter, people will admire you for that.

1. Research designers and look at their ready to wear collections. True, you probably won’t be able to buy that fabulous Marc Jacob dress, but it helps to have some inspiration.
2. Look at reputable fashion magazines such as Vogue, Ellen, or Glamour. If you want something targeted for your age group, try Teen Vogue or Seventeen. Again, these are awesome sources for inspiration (and fashion gossip!).
3. Read blogs. This works can be used in place of magazine subscriptions, or as another source of information. Blogs have many different purposes – Style Bubble is a popular “everything” blog, and

10 Fashion Tips for Weight Loss

10 Fashion Tips for Weight Loss

1. Wear the Right Undergarments

I’m not going to put up a picture for this tip, but let’s face it. The right undergarments can make a difference in how you look and feel. A properly fitted bra makes your clothes lay properly and lifts everything up. (Men can skip this step.) Studies show that the vast majority of women wear the incorrect bra size. Here’s a post I found on Women’s Health that explains how to measure yourself for a bra if you are not comfortable asking for help in a store.

2. Pay Attention to Your Waistband Placement

Low waisted pants are popular, but they can be a challenge if you have a muffin top. I recommend finding pants and skirts that come up a bit higher and help hold everything in while you are toning up and losing weight. Because of excess skin that I have after losing 150 pounds, I still look for pants/skirts whose waistband is not super low.

3. Get a Great Fitting Pair of Jeans

I know jeans are expensive but it was the one item that I bought as soon as I outgrew a particular size. I’d start at Goodwill and often times find a pair I loved.

14 Creative Ways to Organize Your Jewelry

14 Creative Ways to Organize Your Jewelry

1. Frame them

This project looks really refined and complicated, but it is actually a very easy DIY jewelry display to do!
What you just need is a wooden board, a picture frame and some metallic grid. Then you need to paint the wooden board, glue on or fix with the drill some metallic grid and then add the frame on top. It will look even better than an artistic painting.

2. Put them in your wardrobe

How great would it be to open your wardrobe and find there not only your clothes, but also the jewelry to accessorize them with?
You can do that by attaching a rail with some hooks on it, a bit like the ones that you can find in men’s wardrobes to hang their ties, and use it for all your necklaces. They will be there on display for you so you can match them easily with all your dresses!

3. Display them on a statue

A very artistic way to organize your jewelry is to use a small statue or object to hang on your necklaces and bracelets. They will ornate your shelves and add a touch of color to your statue!

4. Divide them

Dividing your jewelry is a great

Simple Ways to Implement Color in a Neutral Wardrobe

Simple Ways to Implement Color in a Neutral Wardrobe

There are two types of fashionistas: those who are drawn to bright colors and patterns all year ‘round and those who can’t seem to stay away from neutral-colored staples.
If you’re a neutral lover and can’t seem to step outside your comfort zone of black jeans and grey v-necks, here are some easy ways you can begin to tip-toe into the world of color.
It’s not necessary to go on a shopping spree and buy a whole new wardrobe if you’re looking to brighten up your everyday, go-to outfit. It’s more about adding to your preferred clothing style rather than changing it completely.

Accessorize

There are another two types of fashionistas: those who know how to accessorize and those who don’t. If you’re the first type, you’re already one step ahead! But, for some, accessorizing can prove to be a bit of an overwhelming experience.
Here’s the good news for the all-black enthusiast: accessorizing with color isn’t as difficult as it may seem. Everyone knows that everything goes with black. Therefore, virtually any color of necklace, bracelet or pair of earrings could be paired with your daily outfits.
As long as your choice of jewelry of choice matches the level of formality

Choosing The Right Jewelry For Your Skin Tone

Choosing The Right Jewelry For Your Skin Tone

Finding Your Skin Tone In 3 Easy Steps

To determine your actual skin tone, it is best to start with a clean face (if you have been using self-tanner, you may want to wait a week or so in order for it to wear off before you attempting this).
Wash off all of your makeup, apply your regular moisturizer, and then wait for at least fifteen minutes. This allows your skin some time to readjust to the temperature and moisture levels of your environment.
Grab a mirror, and stand somewhere where there is a lot of natural light. It doesn’t necessarily have to be direct sunlight, just natural, unfiltered light.
Hold a piece of pure white paper up to your face. If your skin appears to have a pinkish quality to it against the white paper, you have cool undertones in your skin. If it appears to have a yellowish quality, your undertones are warm.
Once you have determined whether you have warm or cool undertones to your skin, the rest is fairly straightforward. Warm undertones look great in warmer colours like gold, reds, oranges, and corals, while cooler tones look great in silver, blues, and greens.

7 Rules for Wearing Statement Jewelry

7 Rules for Wearing Statement Jewelry

Jewelry is the perfect way to bring life to an outfit and enhance your best features. What better way to do so than to complete your look with a bold, striking and attention-grabbing piece of statement jewelry?
Statement pieces are designed for you to have fun with, but can make all the wrong statements if they are not worn correctly.

The beauty of statement jewelry is that it only takes one piece to make your whole outfit stand out. The key is to keep it simple and either work your outfit around one big eye-catching piece, or to work well-coordinated statement accessories into your look by striking the right balance.
From cocktail rings to cuff bracelets and bib necklaces, statement pieces come in all forms, designs, colours and sizes. They can work wonders to add dazzle to a simple dress or can help to draw attention to parts of yourself that you would like to emphasize.
Either way, make sure you follow our rules to pull off a look that gets people looking at you in awe rather than dismay.

1. Less is more

Bold pieces should be allowed to stand out, so do not over-crowd your look by wearing them within close

Selecting a Clutch Style to Complement Your Look

Selecting a Clutch Style to Complement Your Look

Even though clutch-style handbags have been around as long as fashion itself, there has never been a time where there were more options than there are today. If you are in the market for a clutch handbag, a trip to the department store can quickly leave you overwhelmed, causing you to purchase something that may not be right for your look, or even come back totally empty-handed.
The following simple styling suggestions can easily prevent you from feeling as if you are drowning in a sea of clutch styles. Listed here are some of our top picks whose classic styling will take you through evenings out for years to come.

#1 The Simple, Rectangular Clutch

Whether it’s a thin, sleek, frame-style clutch with a clasp closure or a boxier flap-style bag, a simple clutch with clean lines is such a classic bag it is one you will keep for the rest of your life. This style of clutch will work for all but the most formal of events, and can easily fit into a larger handbag or tote when you need to be able to go from day to night without stopping-off at home to change your ensemble.
Choose a sleek leather

Classy Weekend Bags For Women

Classy Weekend Bags For Women

Black Leather

This one says you like luxury and aren’t afraid to invest in good pieces that will last for a long time. The ideal choice is dark leather as it won’t get dirty as fast and it will be easier to clean. It’s durable, and it won’t lose its shape during the years. Another plus, the creases of a well loved, bag will only give it an extra, vintage flair. Of course, you can also go for faux leather or a similar synthetic material. We love the Maxi Mabel black leather bag by Mulberry (left), but the choice and price range is really wide, so go with what suits your style and wallet best.

Brown Canvas

Ideal for a weekend in the country, the brown canvas is more like a duffel bag, but still classy and elegant. If you plan on wearing denim or being in nature, the brown canvas is a great choice. The obvious choice would be the Louis Vuitton Damier Ebene canvas weekender, but you can find stylish brown bags from other designers for less money.

Bold Color

Go for a quality bag in a rich color to brighten up your travelling outfit. Depending on your wardrobe, try a mustard, wine,

How to Look Classy Without Spending a Lot of Money

How to Look Classy Without Spending a Lot of Money

Pay attention to fit

No matter how much or how little you spend on your clothes, if they fit you poorly, you will look sloppy, or even cartoonish. Blouses that gap, pant leg hemlines that are too short or too long, tops that don’t fit well in the shoulders – these may all seem like small things, but they make a huge difference to an overall look.
If you’re not sure where to start, enlist the help of a friend, or even a sales associate in a clothing store to assess the fit of a garment. Remember, the numerical size on a clothing tag is not set in stone; different brands and designers size their clothing differently, so be open to trying on clothes a size or two in either direction of the size that you think you are. The better a garment fits, the more you will wear it, and the better investment it will be.
If everything seems to fit you in that “almost but not quite” kind of way, don’t lose hope. Most women are not going to find clothes that fit perfectly straight off the rack. It is easy to enlist the help of a tailor to

Holiday Fashion Tips from an Expert

Holiday Fashion Tips from an Expert

1. What is the hottest style of the season, who can pull it off & how?
Leather is everywhere and can be worn by anyone! Leather leggings are incredibly versatile. They can be worn with sweaters, blazers and feminine blouses. A leather pencil skirt works for women of all sizes, as does a leather jacket. Step outside your comfort zone in a bold color like blue or red.

2. Do you have some tips for dressing for your body type? Looking sexy no matter what your size or shape?
Looking sexy is all about confidence. Instead of obsessing over the latest trends, wear what makes you feel good. I always suggest investing in a statement pair of heels. They’ll fit you even if you over indulge during the holidays. Another way to feel sexy is spending an extra five minutes prepping your body before getting dressed: Apply lotion to make sure your skin is silky smooth. Choose a deodorant like Dove to make sure you’re moisturized while staying dry. And exfoliate your lips so they’re kissable all night long!

3. What is your personal favorite style of the season?
I’m currently obsessed with peplum. Every week you’ll find me in a peplum

12 Tips for Choosing the Right Bridesmaid Dresses

12 Tips for Choosing the Right Bridesmaid Dresses

1. Be a Good Friend

The quickest way to perturb your best friends? Invite them to be in your bridal party, then turn them into fashion victims. Don’t dress them in something hideous so you’ll look better in comparison, and don’t choose bridesmaid dresses that make your girls look heavy or totally unsexy.

2. Find the Right Feel

Take your time and decide how you want the bridesmaid dresses to complement yourwedding gown. Find a style that evokes the same feel as your dress but isn’t too similar — you don’t want your bridesmaids looking like the bride.

3. One Size Doesn’t Fit All

Search for a style that flatters the different sizes and shapes of your bridesmaids. A-line skirts and empire waists tend to look good on all body types.

4. Mix It Up

Or consider choosing a color or fabric and then letting each bridesmaid pick a style that best suits her body type. Your petite bridesmaid and taller attendant may look totally different in the same dress and would surely appreciate the chance to pick their own style.

5. Color Them Beautiful

Choose colors that you like and think would look good on all of your friends (consider their complexions and hair colors). Brighter

4 Tips for Choosing the Perfect Cocktail Dress

4 Tips for Choosing the Perfect Cocktail Dress

Cocktail dresses are one of my absolute favorite types of dress. Like the styles themselves, the occasions in which one might find yourself donning a cocktail dress can vary in many ways. When we think of cocktail parties, we usually think of Friday night martinis and little sequined dresses. However, Sunday brunches, holiday parties and numerous other events can also require a great dress that meets all the requirements of a cocktail soiree.

1. Know Your Setting

Deciding the right type of dress for any event takes some thought. Luckily, cocktail dresses are a necessity for many women’s wardrobes, so no matter what particular event you’re shopping for, you’re likely to get good use out of your dress. Take the time of day and the season into consideration when shopping for your dress. It’s unlikely that you’d wear the same nighttime mini dress you once wore on a sexy date to a midday get-together with your girlfriends. A little common sense goes a long way in determining the qualifying factors for an appropriate cocktail dress.

Thinking ahead in terms of season will help you find the right fabrics, lengths and styles to consider. Having a good sense of seasonal colors can also help

10 Tips for Choosing Athletic Shoes

10 Tips for Choosing Athletic Shoes

Running and walking are among the purest, most natural forms of exercise around. With newfangled innovations like Freon-filled midsoles and pump-it-up tongues, it’s knowing which shoes to buy that seems to require an advanced degree.

Choose the wrong athletic shoes and you could end up lying on the couch nursing shin splints or aching heels instead of enjoying a brisk walk or run.

While most specialty sport-shoe stores have knowledgeable staff to guide you, you’ll be a few steps ahead of the game armed with some basic knowledge about your feet and their specific needs. Here is some expert advice to heed before buying new footwear:

Don’t make shoes multitask. Walking shoes are stiffer; running shoes are more flexible, with extra cushioning to handle greater impact. If you do both activities, get a pair for each one.

Know your foot. Sure, we’ve all got 10 toes and two heels, but beyond that, feet come in a variety of shapes — and knowing your foot’s particular quirks is key to selecting the right pair of shoes. Most major brands now offer a model to suit every foot type.

One way to determine your foot’s shape is to do a “wet test”— wet your foot, step on

7 Tips on Choosing a Clutch Purse to Accessorize Your Outfit

7 Tips on Choosing a Clutch Purse to Accessorize Your Outfit

The right accessories can make or break someone’s outfit. From hats to shoes, it is important to strike the right balance with accessorizing; otherwise an outfit might simply turn out all wrong. One accessory in particular is important on both a function level and a fashion level: the clutch purse. A standard clutch purse holds some basic necessary items, including a driver’s license, credit cards, cash, and perhaps a cellphone. Women typically hold their clutch purses in their hands, but several styles come with a strap that wearers can remove when not in use, allowing the wearer to sling the purse over a shoulder or slip it onto a wrist. Several factors are important when selecting the right clutch purse, including size, color, versatility, material, structure, and cost.

1.  Select the Right Size for Your Body Type

While clutches are by nature smaller purses, they still come in different shapes and sizes, and it is important for accessories to look proportionate to the person wearing them. Petite individuals should consider a small to medium clutch, such as the J. Crew Invitation Envelope Clutch . Taller individuals can sport something a bit larger, one option being the Coach Legacy Oversized Clutch , which

How to Choose Clothes for Baby Girls

How to Choose Clothes for Baby Girls
1. Know the correct size of your baby. Baby girls’ clothes are available in all sizes. You will be able to choose clothes if you know the right size.

  • Remember, little girls can grow within no time. So, even if you buy a size too big, your little girl will be able to fit into it a few months down the line. However, if the size is too small, it will be restrictive and uncomfortable.
  • The right size is one that is comfortable and allows your baby girl to move freely
2. Follow fashion trends when picking clothes for baby girls.

  • Keep in mind that the baby needs to wear the right clothing for the occasion. The last thing you want is your baby wearing a lacy princess dress when playing in the sand pit or learning to make mud pies down by the creek!
  • Follow fashion trends, but do not follow them blindly.
3. Select clothes with comfort and safety in mind. These two factors should be paramount when choosing baby girls’ clothing.

  • Make sure there are no sharp zippers and no loose buttons that your baby could swallow. If you are buying nightwear, ensure it adheres to safety standards.

Baby clothing — How to choose cute, practical baby clothing for your little one

If you’re expecting a new bundle of joy, or have a few that are already giving you sleepless nights, you know full well that there’s lots to consider when it comes to raising a baby. You’ve got to keep them safe, healthy, happy, clean. Fed and watered, sheltered and at more than just an arm’s length away from all cleaning supplies and electrical outlets. There’s a never-ending list of considerations. Oh, and you have to clothe them, too!

We checked in with Donna Paris, senior editor at Canadian Living magazine to find out what you need to consider when it comes to dressing your baby. She tells us what’s on trend and provides helpful shopping tips that’ll help you keep your baby safe and comfortable.

“When we talk about baby fashion trends, the basics come first,” says Paris. “You want your baby to be comfortable. Everyday clothing should be light and casual. Remember: We’re talking about babies.”

Fashion Tips For New Moms

Fashion Tips For New Moms

You have exactly five minutes to get ready in the morning and nothing seems to fit right. You don’t know how much your body will change after this (so how do you shop?). How the heck do you manage to look (and feel) hot? The answer is the right clothes! Here’s your wardrobe strategy.

Go Drapey

A brand-new-mom’s body is in a state of transition that can be tough to dress. “It’s the fourth trimester! You’ve gone from having a glorious excuse of a stomach to a deflated basketball,” says Amy Tara Koch, author of Bump It Up, who also writesFive Minute Fixes, a fashion blog for moms. “Moms can be so self-conscious during those first few months.” And as comfy as they may be, sweatpants only make you look worse.

Instead, Koch recommends wearing tops and dresses that drape over and away from your tummy, rather than fitting tightly. “Ruching and gathers are great details to look for,” she says. “The fabric should cascade over your body, so it doesn’t cling.” T-shirt dresses, Empire-waist dresses, tunics and tops with ruching are all great options.

Stay away from big clothes all over, though — instead of a wide-leg pant, pair a billowy top with
