Get the Perfect Summer Party Look

 Winter can be pretty dull. After Thanksgiving, Christmas and the New Year, there’s not much going on. It’s just a long stretch of cold until spring arrives. But when the weather starts getting warming, it’s party time! Spring and summer are perfect for getting outside in the sun, even when you have to risk a surprise downpour. And summer is especially perfect for barbecues, garden parties, and days out on the beach. But if you’re attending all these parties, you need to have the look. How are you supposed to get your party on if you aren’t dressed the part? So make sure you’re dressed to kill with these latest summer party looks for 2015. Day to Night Dresses With the longer days of summer, you have more time to enjoy yourself before it’s time to go home. You can either leave for a party after work or have a fun day out and transition to an evening party. Changing into an entirely new outfit is a pain, so having something you can dress up or down is the perfect solution. Choose the right dress and it can be ideal for work, shopping or hanging on the beach. Then later in the day, a quick swap of accessories will turn it into the perfect party dress. A cute sundress can work for both the office and your evening event. Wear it with a light cardigan and sheer tights at work, and then swap them out for bare legs, sandals and some bling at night. Take a shawl or wrap in case it gets a little chilly. Wearing White If you don’t know what color to pick this season, you’ll be safe going with white. It might not technically be a color, but there was plenty of it on the catwalk for all the spring/summer collections this year. White dresses were particularly popular, but you could try white pants, tops, shirts, or even a white suit. Brighten up your look with some more colorful accessories. Party Shoes Your shoes are one of the essential elements of your party outfit. They need to look fantastic, but you need to be able to party all night in them too. Plus, during the summer you could be partying on the beach, in the park or by the pool. So you don’t want anything that will be too difficult to walk in, especially on uneven ground. There are plenty of styles in this season, from clogs and masculine flats to gladiator sandals. Swap out your smart work flats for an evening on the beach in sandals. Accessories No outfit is complete without accessorizing, especially...

Why Accessories Make The Outfit Complete

 As a woman, a lot of our time can be spent checking out the trends for this season and then doing our best to fit in with them. It is essential to our success that we look good so that we can feel good in the skin we are in. Our fashion choices, makeup, and hair, are all key to what makes us look like we have bothered in the morning and cared for who we are and what we are about. Without that minimal effort, we wouldn’t be where we are today. Without our sense of fashion and style on display, we may even feel like we’re losing a little of ourselves. Choosing an outfit is never easy when we are busy. We have clothes for the office, and an entire wardrobe of great outfits for the evenings out. Somewhere tucked at the back will be some gym wear, and last but not least we have our casual wear. With so many different looks, it may require an entire cupboard to fit in all the different accessories we need to complete each outfit. One of the most important accessories of all is the wrist watch. Wearing a wristwatch is essential for most of us who have meetings to get to and busy days ahead of us. Very few of us buy enough watches to coordinate exactly with every outfit we have, but it is worth trying to think of the watch as an accessory that should match and enhance our style. You can find many different styles of watches like Shinola watches for women that should complete any look you are going for. Accessories like timepieces are key to finishing off a look. Whatever our preferred style may be, a good watch could really make a statement when it comes to completing an outfit. You may be looking for something with a leather strap and a good face. Alternatively, you may want solid gold and diamonds in the hands. Whatever your look, there are many styles of watches you can choose from to match what you want. Scarves and pashminas are also great accessories for completing that look you are trying to achieve. Choose free and flowing, or neat and crisp to get the style you need. The great thing about having a good hoard of accessories is that you should always be able to dress the way you want to and look like a lot of time and consideration went into it. Earrings and necklaces are great ways to fill out the detail of any style you are looking to achieve. Chunky beads or chic gems can...

How To Pick The Perfect Party Dress

 We all love getting dressed up for a party or special occasion, and buying a new party dress is all part of the fun. The perfect party dress in the right material, colour and style, can make you feel fabulous and ready to party. That’s why it is so important to choose the right dress and accessories. But, what about when you just can’t find a dress that you love? First things first, don’t panic. When you have an upcoming event to attend and can’t find anything to wear, you may begin to feel a little anxious – what if you don’t find anything? But, there is no need to feel stressed. By simply following our helpful tips and advice, you can easily find the perfect dress for your party or event. To find out more, have a read of this: 1.  What type of dress do you want? Choosing the perfect style of dress will depend on a range of factors, including the type of party, your body shape and your personal style. For example, a dress that looks great on one person, may not work for another – it is all about finding something that works for you. Think about the type of dress that you would like – the style, colour and shape, and then consider how it would look on you. When looking good is a priority, such as at a party or event, it is essential that you choose a dress that flatters your body shape. 2. Choose a dress to suit your figure We all have different body shapes and sizes – a dress that looks fabulous on a curvy figure is completely different to a dress that enhances a slim figure. Choosing the right dress, has a lot to do with knowing and understanding what styles of dress look good on certain body shapes. Specific aspects of a dress, such as the cut, material and style, look good on different body shapes. Women with an hourglass figure suit dresses that have a belt or cinching at the waist. Whereas, women with apple figures look great in v-necked cuts and empire waist dresses.  Petite women look fabulous in dresses that elongate their figure, such as short dresses that make the legs look longer. While women with pear shaped figures look great in dresses that have a fitted top half and a flowing bottom. 3. Think about the occasion As well as making you look and feel good, a party dress needs to be well suited to the event or occasion. The style of dress that is suitable for a wedding party is not...

Make Your Old Clothes Look Fabulous

 Up styling, has become a keen new fashion forward way of making your old clothes look fabulous. Of course, for some fashionista, modifying your clothes is a great way to separate yourself from the herd. When it comes to up styling, there are no hard and fast rules. That’s the glorious thing about fashion; it’s all about being you. So, if you are keen to start vamping your clothes and making them yours, there are some fantastic ways that this can be done. Whether you’re a newbie to the world of sewing or a hardened seamstress, there are some simple tips that you can use. Operation Overhaul: Make This a Seasonal Project New fashion seasons come and go, but your wardrobe always remains the same. Of course, so many of us add to it, but we rarely look at what we already have. Make sure that you are de-cluttering on a seasonal basis. If there is a something that you want to keep, but could with a little tweak here and there, keep it. But, be ruthless. If your old party dress hasn’t seen the light of day since 1995, throw it out. Evaluate Your Clothes Okay, so if you have a Gucci piece in your closet, you are unlikely to want to get rid of it. We all have investment pieces. So, it’s wise that you don’t start tampering with these. After all, in a few years these critical pieces will be vintage. But, if you have high street brands in your closet, look at how these can be up styled and revamped. Take a simple turtleneck sweater and add lace detailing around the cuffs and collar. Simple jewel and button adornments to the sleeves can revitalise an old t-shirt. Take a look at your dresses. Could they become funky new t-shirts by cutting and sewing at the hem? Think about your clothes and evaluate them. Cheaper high street pieces are perfect for up styling. Leave the designer classics as just that. Separating Your Clothes from the Pack There are some simple ways that you can change the entire appearance of your closet. Take a look at old coats that you don’t wear anymore. Coats are the best thing to use in your up-styling project. Take the buttons and see where else they can be used. Coats tend to have large, brassy buttons. Add these to jumpers, tops and skirts for a funky overhaul. You don’t have to be a designer to make your clothes look new. Simply take a look at a sewing machine for beginners to get you started. Head to the Haberdashery Okay, so you may not want...

Why I LOVE Bobbi Browns Pink Quartz Shimmer Brick!

Why I LOVE Bobbi Browns Pink Quartz Shimmer Brick!

 By Anna Carolina:  Hello! Thrilled to continue  blogging on webcityTeens as a teen blogger and soooo happy the Miami Heat are NBA Champs Today, I want to share my thoughts about Bobbi Brown’s Pink Quartz shimmer brick which is a great, versatile makeup product. The palette is shimmery and has light tones of pink and bronze hues. What I love most about it is that you can wear it several different ways. You can use it as a blush/bronzer on your cheekbones and all over your face. You can also use it as a bold shimmery eyeshadow. My favorite way to use it is as a highlighter for the inner corners of your eyes or dab some on your cupids bow to give the appearance of larger lips. I use the shimmer brick as an everyday product and especially during the winter to give me that bronzed glow. The shimmer brick is usually my go to bronzer even though it is a little pricey, but certainly worth it! Every time I have a friend over they love to steal it and use it since it is so temptingly shiny! I decided to buy it since my mom had bought one and I had fallen in LOVE with it! The brick has never made my skin irritated and has always been a lightweight product. The way brick is structured is great since it goes from least shinny to most shinny, making it easier to chose what you want. I only have to buy it twice a year since it has a lot of product in the bricks! I would definitely recommend this product since I see no flaws in the shimmer brick. Please let me know what your are using and can’t wait to chat with you again soon!  ...
