THE RIGHT PRINTS FOR YOUR BODY ! <3

GOOOODD MORRNING GUYS ! RISE AND SHINEEE ❤
So as i had mentioned in the previous post , here is the story all about patterns and prints. Florals, polka dots , stripes and so much more , Oh my ! learn how to wear the most figure flattering pattern for you  🙂

6 PATTERN PERSONALITIESWHICH ONE ARE YOU?

VERTICAL STRIPES : They convey strength and authority. They’re great for shorter women who want added height because vertical stripes elongate, making you look slimmer.

HORIZONTAL STRIPES : It conveys a more restful look (appropriate for business-casual situations), but they definitely accentuate width, making most women look heavier than they really are. In other words, unless you’re super-slim, stay away from horizontal stripes.

Here is an example of how horizontal stripes can make people look wider but since Shilpa Shetty has a slim body and is tall , she is able to carry this off pretty well .

STRIPES-AND-DENIM-5

DIAGONAL STRIPES : They convey energy and creativity and are the most slimming pattern.

This striped dress is ideal for cruel summer days & nights as its made out of thin cotton jersey material which falls in a rather flattering way. On Shirin’s inverted triangle body shape, the deep v neck makes her shoulders appear narrow while pleats around front and back with an empire waistline add the necessary curve to her frame. Diagonally placed stripes through out the dress add the illusion of a narrow curvy frame. This is a very clever outfit for someone who is an inverted triangle or rectangle body type.

FLORAL PRINTS :  convey femininity and are perfect for social gatherings and weekend wear, which is why you see floral patterns a lot at parties and weddings. However, be sure to pick a floral pattern that is proportionate to your size. “A petite woman should choose a small- to medium-size floral print,” says Williams. Larger women will find larger floral prints more figure-flattering.

POLKA DOTS : also convey femininity. And, contrary to what your mother told you, Williams says most women can, in fact, wear polka dots. “Polka dots are the perfect answer for women who aren’t comfortable in floral patterns to subtly show off their femininity,” she says

0025 aayu3 article-2756836-2161BC9400000578-889_634x1186 IMG_6865

And remember, all patterns come in more abstract variations. You just need to try different styles on to determine which one you feel most comfortable in.

When selecting a striped item, Williams suggests choosing a mixture of stripe widths. “Solid, bold stripes especially when they’re horizontal have the tendency to widen,” she says. Patterns have the power to accentuate or minimize yourcurves, so know your body, determine the image you want to convey and then get out there and have fun with patterns. Your options are endless!

People can also try new prints and patterns in trend now like :

THE RIGHT PRINTS FOR YOUR BODY TYPE !! :)

GOOODDD MORRNINNGG GUYSS ! ❤

So as i had mentioned in my previous post , this story would be all about the prints and patterns that are flattering to your body . Curvy or slim , choose the right prints for you ! 🙂

Patterns offer easy ways to liven up your wardrobe. But since patterns can accentuate your weight and height, it’s important to choose prints that are the most flattering for you.it’s imperative to know your body shape and size before purchasing patterned clothing.

“The key is to choose patterns that are proportionate to you,”

And, you’ll be happy to know that there isn’t one specific pattern that is most flattering on all women. “Patterns opposite to your face shape are the most complementary,”So, if you have a round face, stay away from polka dots.”

MIXING YOUR PATTERNS : KNOW HOW 
Current fashion trends embrace mixing and matching patterns such as floral skirts topped with striped shirts and polka-dotted blouses matched with striped pants.
“You are limited only by your imagination.”

But before you unleash your inner flair for fashion, follow these quick and easy tips on what patterns can convey . To determine the type of pattern best suited to you, consider your personality – fun, serious, creative – and then consider your lifestyle casual or corporate.

6 PATTERN PERSONALITIES : WHICH ONE ARE YOU? 

1. Vertical stripes convey strength and authority. They’re great for shorter women who want added height because vertical stripes elongate, making you look slimmer.

COLOURS TO MATCH YOUR SKIN TONE : A LITTLE GUIDE :)

Finding the perfect colours for your skin tone is sometimes a difficult job. We question ourselves so many times , Will it look good on me? Does the colour go with my skin? etc.
The colours we wear play a crucial role in whether we look bright and fresh or dull and washed out . Considering the change of weather , the harsh sun and a general variation in complexion .

Here are some of the colours to match with your skin.  A SIMPLE GUIDE 🙂
LIGHT : Pastel hues and and softer tones such as lilac and baby blue work work in most situations. Avoid cream and beige as they might make you look dull and tired. Also try colours like emerald, camel also go really well ! 11899450_989662051075767_780099307_n aquamarine-forever-21-skirt-white-topshop-top-black-zara-heels-earrings DSC_2527-copy f3f27d8c6dc8c30fe19c1da2c9afb20e IMG_6445

MEDIUM : Think tropical colours such as such as Teal, Saffron, and dusty rose. Avoid neon colours.

DARK : Earthly colours like peach , coral and jewel tones of blue ,pale grey olive and purple look best. Avoid extremely bright tones , specially during the day.

UNDERTONES : Don’t be intimidated by the fact that the term ‘undertone’ is thrown around by fashion specialists. There’s an easy way to figure out whether you have a cool or a warm undertone. If your inner wrist is more yellow than blue, you have a warm undertone and if not, a cool undertone. Warm, earthy tones complement those with warm undertones whereas lighter, softer colours bring out cooler undertones better.

THE MIRROR TEST : Don’t just pick up items from the rack and decide to bring them home. When buying new clothes, stand in front of a mirror, hold them up against your neck, and look at them with respect to your own colour. A beautiful colour may not look as good on you as it will on someone else. Ideally, it should make your skin look brighter and more luminous (not to be confused with fairer). If not, try a shade you might not usually pick up. It may actually surprise you.

WHEN IN DOUBT : Navy blue, black, white, plum and olive green suit most people irrespective of skin tone, so clothes in these colours can be staples in your wardrobe. Neutral colours are another safe option.

GO THE NATURAL WAY : Colours closer to your skin tone will look better on you. For example, dark brown or magenta will suit dark-skinned girls while rose pink will suit very fair girls.

COMFORTABLE IS THE KEY : No matter what giudes say, the ultimate confidence comes from feeling comfortable in your own skin. If you hate bright colours, no amount of coaxing will make you feel beautiful in them. So always pay regard to your personal preferences as well.

I hope this post might have helped you guys 🙂

The next post will be about the prints one should wear according to the body type ❤ stay tuned !

CHOOSE YOUR NECKLACES !

c500x416

RoundtheNeck

Different necklines look better with certain necklace styles.

Turtle necks – best with longer necklaces

Crew necks – best with short necklaces such as necklace ‘collar’ or bib styles

Scoop necks – fill in the space with multiple strands of beads or larger scale pendants

Strapless – look great with chokers or short pendants, leaving your lovely decolletage bare

Square necks – look for pendants with an angular finish to harmonize with the angular neckline

Asymmetric necklines – look for necklaces that aren’t symmetrical, instead a necklace that has it’s own asymmetry can work, alternatively a long string of different sized and shaped beads can work well.

Halter necks – these create a narrow V neck – so look for a narrow pendant with a sharper end

V neck – ideally a necklace that matches the shape of the V – depending if it’s a wider or narrower V neck.

Collared shirt (button down) – there isn’t much space for anything too wide, so a choker style works if you have a long neck, if not a slimmer pendant that sits above the last open button.

Boat neck – a long string or two of beads is ideal for this neckline.

Cowl neck – this neckline is already detailed and has volume, so either a short and small pendant or a pair of feature earrings instead of a necklace.

Sweetheart – a curved necklace that has width that will balance the open decolletage of this neckline.

HIPPIE YET SIMPLE : LEARN HOW TO DRESS

PhotoGrid_1444379063083

PhotoGrid_1444377470210

The hippy look can be beautiful and unique , and you dont actually have to be a hippie to pull it off and still look cute 🙂

Step 1 : GET HAIR AND MAKEUP RIGHT

Makeup should be kept blunt or natural sometimes because hippie culture shows a lott of freedom , but generally they use really bright artificial colours and dark lippies.The key is also to look fresh and gorgeous.

Step 2 : MAYBE GET A HAIRBAND or braid or just leave your hair open and get a messy/unkempt look specially for long hair.
If you have short hair dont worry . loose, hippy up dos are fabulous! invest in a few sparkly or beaded bobby pins , or a silk hair scarf if you like and make little plaits/braids and twist other sections of hair and pin them at the back of your head, then tuck the ends over at the back and pin them up. Pull a few strands loose, add a couple of curls if you want, sp[ray lightly and you have a beautiful casual up do !

Step 3 : WORK ON HIPPY CLOTHES

The clothes are the most fun part, you can really play with colour and texture yet make it comfy .
Long floaty skirts or palazzos are perfect for the look. if yours plain then tie a colourful silk scarf around the waistbnd and sew a few beads to them.

Now for the top half anything goes well , a general rule is to wear anything tigher , more feminine tops , such as vests with cardigans when covering up your legs and baggier tops when showing them off. This way your look is feminine but stil casual and comfortable.

Band tees can be really cool, just make sure you know the band you are wearing over your heart.

Step 4 : ACCESSORIZE with bangles, kooky bags , hand made jewellery, badges, and a big old pair of sunnies and you are good to go !

Step 5 : DONT BE AFRAID OF A SPLASH OF COLOUR, BUT DONT GO ALL OUT : its really fun to do . and there are lots of brilliant tehniques , you cn play around with too !
