The 6 Best Summer 2018 Fashion Trends

As we usher in the new fashion season, it’s only natural that our minds should turn to the trends of this year. As the year moves on, so does the style of 2018, and everything from the jeans we should be wearing to the accessories we should be styling gets an update.

 

To make sure you’re always in style, check out these top 5 picks from the upcoming Summer fashion trends – and always remember to stay up to date on how to look after your clothes (nothing ruins new clothing like not knowing how to get rid of pen stains, especially with the pastel trend).

Pretty in Pastel

Pastel tones started making a comeback in the form of colourful hair dyes (think Kim Kardashian’s pastel pink she rocked just a month ago) and dresses and have now been seen up and down runways worldwide. From gorgeous strawberry shades to mint greens to sunny, muted yellows, pastel should certainly be your go-to colour trend this year.

Talk About Trench Coats

Perfect for the heavy rainfall we’re about to see, trench coats were the loves of many designers this season. With the likes of Maison Margiela and Balenciaga putting their own twists on this classic, it’s time to see what style you like best. Why not combine two trends and opt for a pastel-toned trench?

Purple Power

Following Pantone’s announcement that the colour of 2018 is ultra-violet, it’s not too surprising that the catwalks were transformed into seas of purple for Spring/Summer. Rich and luxurious, it’s a colour that will certainly have an impact and looks stunning with black hair.

Crazy for Cowboy Boots

Cowboy boots have once again been spotted walking the runways around the world. Calvin Klein, Givenchy, Maison Margiela; these are just a few of the designers who saddled up to ride the Western theme this year. They’re also great for walking through rain (as long as you look after them properly with water-proof coatings) so will be both stylish and practical this season!

Straight-Cut Jeans

It’s time to ditch the skinny’s and keep the flares buried in the back of the wardrobe as straight-cut begins to take over the jeans scene. Paired with fitted, figure-hugging tops and a pair of stylish trainers, you’ll be nailing the go-to casual look of the season.

Jumpsuits Forever

The jumpsuit is a timeless piece; easy to wear and can be styled for a casual day outfit or a formal evening look, it’s about time it made a big comeback. Spotted at Apiece Apart, Gucci and Tod’s to name but a few, the jumpsuit was shown off left, right and center this year.

Staying on trend is important for any fashionable man or woman, so keeping on top of what’s hot on the catwalk with each passing season is vital. See how you can update your wardrobe and remember to brush up on clothing care, learning how to remove pen stains from clothes and keep your outfits looking fresh.

10 Bra Types You Should Have in Your Wardrobe!

We all know as a women, Bra is an essential we cannot avoid. Sometimes we hate wearing them, but we have to agree that they add a lot of value to our dressing and today Bra is not a basic undergarment any more, its a fashion piece, an essential, but definitely something that is lot more than an essential. There are more than 30 types of bra available in the market, but everyone doesn’t need all 30, because most of them are based on specific needs. For example, a maternity bra is needed only when you are on maternity, or for that matter a push up bra is ideal for someone who has small breasts. But here are 10 types of Bra that probably every woman can wear and should have in her wardrobe in order to style them with her choice of clothes.

  • T- Shirt Bra– Now however basic you may consider this one, its a necessary to have a good t shirt bra in your wardrobe. Its seamless and perfect to wear under t-shirts of course, but also go well under some plain dresses and shirts. They usually offer full cover and chances of sagging breasts, double boob are almost negligible if you chose a good fitting bra. A range of seamless bras are available online for you to choose from

  • Sports Bra– Yes another routine bra, we all hear and read about all the time, but its important to chose this carefully so       that it not only provides you the basic support but is also extremely comfortable and relevant to the physical activity you chose. A bra with low impact is suitable for yoga or walking, and a high impact one is needed for rigorous exercises like aerobics, running, zumba, etc.
  • Padded Bra– As contrary to popular myth that only women with smaller breasts need padded bra, even a woman with fuller breasts should occasionally try on the padded bra. Sometimes under those deep neck dresses, semi padded bra comes as saviours. In winters they help you give full nipple coverage and avoid embracing encounters. The soft padded ones are super soft and comfortable for any season and dressing.
  • Strapless Bra– This one comes in really handy when you wanna wear those off shoulder dresses and tops. Every time flaunting a bra strap is not so cool, and sometimes you really want the only focus to be on your shoulders.
  • Stick on Bra– This is a new age rage, nothing like the regular bra, but these silicone stick on bras are perfect for those weird neckline dresses that end up confusing you which bra would go with it. Doesn’t that happen with you, you see that dress in the shop and the first thing that strikes your mind is which bra would go under it. For all such dilemmas, these stick on bras work just fine. Check this one out
  • Sheer Bra– Who doesn’t like at least one sensors looking bra in their wardrobe. Sheer bras do just that for you, generally made in materials like net, satin and lace, they expose a bit of your skin, but unlike the typical lingerie range, these provide adequate coverage and support.
  • Halter Neck Bra– Flaunt that halter neck bra underneath a sexy top or dress and you will have all eyes wandering in your direction. As the name suggests these don’t go around your arms and are rather tied up with your neck and most of these are convertibles giving you options of transparent straps, cross back or halter necks. Having one in the wardrobe is a must.
  • Wire Less Bra– For those easy days, go for a basic wire less bra. We all have been totally under the catch of padded, wired and underwired bras and we love them, but on some occasions you need to give your boobs a little rest from the constant poking of the wire, even the doctors advise it.
  • Bralette– A bra that is non wired, non padded and non structured.. do you get the picture of it being the most comfortable bra type ever and undoubtedly it is. Yet it looks super sexy, with generally many design options to choose from they are even worn as crop tops and go well under anything and everything. Thats why they are the next big thing.

 

 

 

 

Wear T shirts with a style

T-shirts have been every girl’s wardrobe staple at some point of time. However, there is no need to always wear them the same, old way. Tee shirts, even the most basic ones can look extremely smart if worn in different ways and teamed up with the right accessories and right pieces of clothing. With a lot of options to take your pick from, wouldn’t it be really nice if you had some kind of a T-shirt styling cheat sheet? Read on below to find some interesting ideas to wear your T-shirts stylishly.

With summer approaching soon, it is high time restock on some variously coloured and patterned tee shirts and go online shopping.

Team up your tee with a Summer dress

If you have a summer dress that has a rather plunging neckline appropriate only for parties, you can put a Tee shirt to use. Wear a tee shirt beneath to act as an inner beneath the dress. The tee would not only cover up but also add a stylish streak to your regular summer dress.

Trousers with tee shirts

We usually tend to wear Tee shirts with jeans but many tees look flattering even with semi-formal trousers. You can tuck the tee in the trousers and add a belt to look really smart especially, with the high waist ones.Comfortable, platform heels look the best for office wear.

Add a scarf

Adding a scarf is the simplest way to revamp any plain tee shirt that is lying idle in your closet. A scarf instantly adds some colour and definition.

Wear beneath blazers

You can make a single Black blazer look different each time you pair it up with a different coloured or patterned tee shirt. Adding accessories like scarves, chunky neck pieces etc is another option. If you are planning to wear this combo for office, make sure you avoid anything with Letters or messages that have pun-intended.

Skirts with Tee shirts

Pair up tee shirts with mini or mid length skirts. Who said tee shirts are for tomboys? Add a pretty neck piece or a scarf with smart heels and you would look very cute and feminine. You may or may not add a pair of stockings with this beautiful combo. Sport the look with smart heels or stilettos.

Tee shirts with Palazzo

Nothing beats the cool quotient of pairing up a graphic tee with a flared Palazzo.Do not forget to add a wide belt or a belt bag for that additional style factor.

Tee with Shorts

A funky and colourful tee shirt looks uber cool when paired up with a pair of shorts. Blue denim shorts or White, they never fail to make an impact. Tuck in your tee shirt snugly into the shorts and do not forget the sporty looking shoes and cute socks.

So, with these ideas, we are pretty sure that you shall be able to bring in a fresh spin to the most basic wardrobe item, ever!

Value Shopping with Shop Clues!

How many times do we see those fashionable clothes, those trendy watches, and fashion jewellery across the ads running on social media, we click the links and often shut them back because when we look at the prices, our dreams to own those things start shattering. Most of things are so highly priced, that though we want to make a style statement, but investing huge amounts for a trendy watch or a funky necklace doesn’t seem too wise.

But I as a fashion blogger truly believe that accessories like these help making a fashion statement and one should collect slightly different and unique items. Team one chunky necklace with a plain shirt or top and you are done. One stylish watch, and people turn their heads to look at you. Choosing these things is often assumed very costly but there are some brands that help you own statement watches and jewellery for women in a decent budget.

To our rescue, shopclues.com offers amazing stuff at the best possible prices. Just randomly surfing through the site, I stumbled upon their collection of watches for women and women’s jewellery and trust me its mind blowing.

Value Shopping is surely an upcoming trend which all fashion savvy people should be aware of. It allows you to follow the latest fashion trends, own trendy watches and jewellery without burning a hole in your pocket. College going students or young working women often go through the chaos of looking good everyday, but when it comes to buying new things, it takes a backseat, but like I mentioned brands like shopclues.com now offer such great range of products that you can easily choose from so many options and fit your regular shopping in your routine budget.

Also who minds when fashionable and trendy things don’t cost much, at least I love shopping this way, where I am able to choose many things and may be in comparison pay price of just one big branded item. I personally love changing watches and jewellery according to the clothes I am wearing on a daily basis. The different coloured straps and dials make me swoon over watches and wearing jewellery as per occasion and dresses is a basic necessity for me. When I shopped for myself from shopclues and picked up some amazing stuff, I was able to add a lot of value to my regular look and also make my colleagues and friends a bit jealous. Everyday they would look at me wearing a different watch or a different earring and neckpiece and ask me how can I buy so many things. Then I thought I shouldn’t keep this as a secret anymore and hence I am writing this blog post to make both my friends and readers aware of my value shopping spree.

 

So I am sure now you wont refrain yourself from looking trendy and fashionable on a daily basis and make most of this value shopping from shopclues.

Using Jewellery to Create a Unique Layered Look in Your Outfit

Layering your jewellery can help create a unique look that completes your outfit. Whether you’re attending a wedding, visiting friends or hitting up the club, a unique layered jewellery look will turn heads and grab attention. If you want to show off your fashion sense, then here are a few ways to layer your jewellery.

 

Personalise with unique jewellery pieces

 

If you want to add some personalization to your outfit, then consider using pieces that are more expressive. For instance, a pendant with your name or initials on it can be a great way to add personalization. Similarly, a ring from your favourite TV show can add a geeky touch to your outfit.

 

Silver creates a more neutral look

 

Gold jewellery can be difficult to use because it’s a much bolder colour. If you’re going for a neutral look then consider using silver instead to help add neutral tones to your outfit that doesn’t stand out too much.

 

Go for a simple and minimalist look

 

Don’t want to stand out? Consider using minimalistic jewellery pieces such as simple chains, studs and rings that have no pendants or designs on them.

 

Huge necklaces pair well with smaller ones

 

If you’re looking for a great way to stand out with your jewellery, then consider mixing large chains with smaller ones to make them both stand out. Gold chains also work wonders for creating a fashion statement, so take a look at this helpful infographic that shows several varieties of gold chain that you can mix.

Want To Stand Out? Hair’s How to Do It

For some people, the idea of making themselves stand out is terrifying. These people like to blend in with the crowd, be as unobtrusive as possible, and pass by unnoticed.

You’re not like that though.

You’re the kind of person who has no problem with all eyes being on you; in fact, you like it that way. You’re an expressive and creative person, so of course, you make expressive and creative choices when it comes to your looks. You don’t want to blend in; you want to be the showstopper in every room, wearing your personality on your sleeve — and on your face, body, and hair too.

If the above sounds like you, then you’re in luck. Below, there’s an exploration of three ways you can express yourself through the medium of the hair on your head. The beauty of toying with your hair and trying things out is that it will always grow back, so you can do as you please safe in the knowledge it’s not going to be permanent. Keep that in mind, and read on…

Choose A Creative Dye Job

If you don’t mind playing with the color of your hair to get maximum effect, then why not choose a dye job with a difference? Often done over bleached hair (to get the best color pop,) mermaid hair is increasingly popular. Given how beautiful the result can be, it’s easy to see why too.

If you’d rather stick with just the one color, then why not orange hair? Rather than being a problem to be fixed, orange hair is now gaining its own status as an outlandish, delightful, and absolutely deliberate hair color choice. 

Extend, Extend, And Extend!

Long hair is a statement. It’s an inherently feminine statement, and it’s also eye-catching — no matter what your age. However, long hair might be more of a dream than a reality; for some of us, our hair just doesn’t grow long enough or at a quick enough speed to sate your desire for something different. If this is the case for you, then tape in hair extensions might be the answer. With these, you can have a full head of long, flowing hair, without having to wait years to grow it out. Perfect. 

Be Brave; Go Short  

Short hair can look fantastic, as many celebrities have displayed over the years. However, among the general populace, short hair on women is less often seen. So if you truly want to stand out, then going short could be the most effective way of doing it.

One thing that short hair does, above all other styles, is accentuate your bone structure. For most people, a pixie cut will be extremely flattering. Contrary to popular belief, short hair can also be feminine, as proven by Halle Berry, Rihanna, Anne Hathaway, and all the other pixie cut fans in the celebrity world. So why not take your lead from the A list, trim your locks, and enjoy a more noticeable style as a result? 

So which of these do you think might tempt you?

Corduroy skirts will be huge this fall!

Fancy making a statement this fall with your outfit? Well, then corduroy skirts are your answer. Corduroy skirts have been in fashion for a very long time. In fact, many retro outfits boasted of skirts in corduroy paired with a frilled top. When it comes to corduroy skirts, Taylor Swift is the real icon. While this singer has been known for her courageous fashion and obsession with chic retro clothing, Taylor Swift was seen many at times in public with outfits of short corduroy skirt.

Beginning in the 20th century, skirts were a huge thing among the working women. It was comfortable to walk in and easy to handle. They also formed the basic outfit for family occasions and more. However as fashion trends waxed and waned, skirts slowly lost their game to the denim that was revolutionizing the industry. Skirts, including that of corduroy, were sidelined to special occasions. But they did have their identity and has been in style in a minimal sense. This fall let us rediscover corduroy skirts and their antique charm, to add to the wardrobe.

Fall being the season will a cool weather, corduroy skirts are perfect for your attire. Comfortable fabric, with its velvety and ridged texture, these will keep your warm without having to cover in multiple layers of clothing. Unlike skirts of other fabric, corduroy ensures that the skirt is firm and steady. Being corduroy, these need to not be iron as well.  Since the fabric is quite heavy, having a fully fledged, a complete pleated skirt can add a lot of weight to your skirt. This is why corduroy skirt comes with fewer pleats or no-pleat designs. In this respect, buttoned down corduroy skirts are a real trend.

How to Wear Them?

Picking the right color is essential when it comes to matching a  skirt and top. As for corduroy skirts, the usual trends are. dark shades paired with a light or pale colored top. However, this doesn’t mean that you should stick to the clichés. Corduroys are brilliant in gray and pastel shades too. If you are a person of retro tastes, a brown corduroy skirts would do you well. Team this up with a beige blouse and you can indulge in your retro-ness.

For short corduroy skirt designs, you can pair it with a full sleeve body- hugging sweater for a trendy look. If you are going for mid length or longer designs, you have a plethora of options.

The Latest Jewelry Trends For 2017

Staying on top of fashion trends is the only way to make sure that you don’t fall out of style. Knowing what’s in and what’s out can help you avoid making any embarrassing fashion faux pa’s but a lot of people forget about the smaller details. Accessories are what make or break an outfit so if you get them wrong you can ruin a perfectly good outfit in seconds. One trend that people often neglect is jewelry. There are some pieces that will always be in style but don’t fall into the trap of thinking that this is true of all of it. Certain things that might have been fashionable last year are completely out by now so you have to be careful. If you aren’t up to date, have a look at these recent jewelry trends.

Rose Gold

Rose gold has been a part of the fashion world for a while but at the moment, the color is very popular when it comes to jewelry. It’s a great way to introduce some pretty pink things into your outfit without going overboard with incredibly bright shades of pink on your clothes that might be a bit too much. It’s also a popular choice for lots of other accessories so match your new rose gold earrings with a phone case or a necklace to top off the look. It’s also becoming a popular choice for wedding rings because it’s more interesting than standard gold.

Bold Necklaces

The past few years have seen a massive focus on smaller, choker style necklaces but that’s starting to change this season. Instead, people are going for much larger, bold necklaces that really make a statement. Thick chains with a large stone on are much more fashionable than a thin, shorter necklace. Anything that is art deco inspired is especially good as this is what most of the people in the industry are choosing.

Large Earrings

The view that bigger is better is not just confined to necklaces, it’s also directing the style of earrings that people are wearing this year. Nobody is wearing small studs at the moment, they’re going for huge earrings instead. Anything that uses interesting shapes and materials is a winner.

Single Earrings

As well as big earrings, people are also deciding to wear just the one. It’s a pretty out there move, but if you choose the right style, it can really work. If you’re going to go for the single earring look, make sure it’s something oversized that makes it clear that it’s a choice. If you wear a single small earring, people will just think one has fallen out.

Minerals

Uncut minerals used to be something that people had as an ornament on the shelf but nowadays they’re being used for jewelry as well. Bold necklaces with large sections of uncut mineral on then are really in style at the moment. Healing crystals have also made a big impact at some fashion shows recently.

Crucifixes

The crucifix is a jewelry item that’s always coming in and out of fashion for both men and women. It hasn’t been in for a few years but now it’s back. The traditional crucifix won’t quite cut it though. Find something a bit bigger with plenty of color on it and you’re sure to impress.
