Retro Revisited

Mar 26, 2010
Retro fashion is all about the bling, big bold designs and of course, bell bottoms. It is a reminiscent of a glorious golden era of revolution. The designs and styles use to be bold and loud speaking about the changing mindset and transformation of society during that period.
Polka dots and geometrical shapes were used extensively in the designs so much so that these designs had become almost an anthem back then in 1970s. Flared jeans, bell bottoms, ruffled skirts were quite popular in this period. The boldness was obvious in the jewelry patterns too. Chunky bracelets, big earrings and rings were the trend setters at that time.
Today, the retro fashion is revisited with a fresh new approach. The empire waistlines, layered dresses, swirls, chunky jewelry etc. are back in vogue though the designs and cuts are as per the current generation yet the basic inspiration is from the revolutionary fashion of 1960s and 1970s.

Fashion: The Rules of the Game

Mar 19, 2010

It is a known fact that females love to dress up and flaunt their beauty at every given chance. Following the latest trends and fashion most often tops their priority list but while participating in this rat race of being fashionable, most of the times they turn a blind eye to whether the fashion that they are carrying is even suiting them or not.

There are certain cardinal rules which needs to be followed while following fashion. The first and the most thing to understand is that fashion can not always be wearable, there are lots of fashion trends which practically can not be moved out of the ramp. Hence, one has to understand that while fashion at times can not be carried as it is, it can always be styled to suit one's personality. Once this notion is cleared, its then time to concentrate on the wardrobe.

A female's wardrobe needs to be the right mix of chic classic dresses and funky fashionable clothes. There are few essentials amongst women fashion wear which has to have a place in the wardrobe and those are: a pair of classic black pants, a stylish crisp white shirt, a little black dress, a suave coat, a pair of nice fitting denims and a wrap dress. Not to forget that a trendy handbag and a couple of sexy stilettos also make way to the must-haves list.

Another important thing to remember while dressing is that a trendy dress does not guarantee you a pleasing fashion statement for if the dress doesn't suit your body type and personality, then you very well might end up making a fashion blunder. Thus. it is important to understand the colors, cuts and designs that complement your body structure and help you highlight your assets and play down your flaws.
