How To Wear Stripes

stripes fashion
Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

I am among those ladies who have always been scared to put that piece of stripes on despite the fact that I am fascinated by it especially the black and white ones. Well, for one, I gained too much weight over the years and I just know stripes won’t do my body any justice – vertical stripes that is! And I find horizontal stripes weird too! So I made a conscious effort to avoid wearing stripes or anything with pattern. Fast forward 2016, I shed off weight I still have this fascination over stripes and I noticed it has become a thing lately so I said to myself, screw the rules! Let’s go stripey! 😀

stripes fashion

Don’t get me wrong, that time when I was so scared of stripes, I think I was just paranoid and focused much on how it can make me even wider. But you know what? I realized that stripes is for everyone! No matter what your size is, stripes is for you! Forget all about the rules, if you like it, wear it! Not confident or kind of lost where to start? Well, I hope you’ll find these tips below helpful in choosing the perfect stripes that will suit your body type.

  • Hourglass – You are lucky if you have this body shape! Curvaceous figures can pull off any pattern – stripes too. But to accentuate curves, wear horizontal stripes to add focus to your hips and bust.
  • Petite – for small women, you will want to maximize your height. Opt for thin, vertical stripes to elongate your figure.
  • Pear – for you ladies out there with bigger bottom halves and narrower shoulders, go for a horizontal stripe top to create the illusion of a bigger torso.
  • Apple – If you have a larger midsection, you would want to go for vertical or diagonal stripes.
  • Rectangle – For the ones with ‘straight up and down’ body type, without carrying weight in one particular area, horizontal stripes with varying width can look fabulous. If you’re wanting to create the illusion of more curves, choose larger stripes.

More Tips:

  • Look for fabrics that follow the shape of your body and have structure.
  • Even if you are wearing side-ways stripes, create a dominant vertical line down your body by putting on a cover-up, jacket, or vest. Use a scarf or a necklace to create that long vertical line down your body.

Styling Festival Wear for Your Daily Wardrobe

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Every year, we see people come up with the craziest festival outfits. Although we expect outrageous and creative ensembles at the likes of Burning Man, festivals like Coachella and Ultra have become the biggest costume parties on the planet, with goers donning everything between Canadian maple leaf pasties to priest costumes.

lights party dancing music

From all the pictures that circle around the Internet in festival season, people are often left under the impression that the wilder the outfits, the better. Despite all the media hype, you should always wear what you’re comfortable with and don’t feel the need to live up to the stereotypical festival outfit standards. In fact, there’s a wide range of clothing that work both as festival gear and daily wear, which is great as it eases the pressure of having to dress up at these huge live music events while still being functional enough to wear on non-festival days.

As it is the season for all our favorite music festivals, fashion bloggers, celebrity stylists, and anyone concerned with the fashion industry will be contributing their wardrobe ideas for these music extravaganzas. Lyst, a renowned international retailer, has specifically compiled a number of casual dresses that would easily be spotted on festival grounds and on the street, inspiring us to come up with our own tips on pulling off festival wear on any given day.

Pair a peasant dress with sandals or slip-ons

The breezy element of these dresses need to be paired with shoes that are just as down to earth and easy going, making sandals the perfect match for this garment.

Wear a loose crop top with a high waist skirt

Crop tops are a staple at festivals, but those that don’t enjoy the tight variety, go for the loose version which is on-trend and equally as flattering.

Add a hair bow to a shorts and chucks combo

The tomboyish look is another popular ensemble for spring and summer festivals, but if you feel like adding a feminine touch, a cute hair bow should do the trick.

The Weekend – What I Wore

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

It was the weekend and what better way to spend it than being with loved ones in an awesome (at least for me) outfit to go with the fabulous day! For the weekend back to back #OOTD I opted for both black but with a little touch something else to complete the look.

Feeling a bit relaxed with this Black/Pink Margarita Jumpsuit I bought from an online store owned by a friend. I love how soft and flowy the cloth feels. My first time to sport a jumpsuit so I wanted to be safe with the classic black one piece as it flatters one’s body type and builds confidence! Add a belt to de-frump a shapeless onesie.

Decided to play elegantly safe on a Sunday with a Little Black Dress (LBD) going to church and lunch date after with my boys. Notice the same belt I used with the jumpsuit? It is becoming a favorite! Stayed light on makeup with the “No makeup, makeup look” and please forgive my eyebags as I have been having trouble getting enough sleep lately ^_^

Which Watch To Wear

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

Personally I think a watch is a jewelry every woman should have. Though with the current advancement of technology where probably most of us does not consider wearing one as time is available on our phones and/or tablet, do consider that a watch can spice up one’s overall look (which phones can never replace). All it takes is to know which is the right watch to sport on certain occasions and how to sport it.

watches

While I admit that I am so fashionably out of fashion when it comes to mixing and matching my outfit with my watch or vice versa, I agree that a watch make a huge difference to an outfit. Here are some tips to help you decide which watch to sport and wear it right.

Get the Right Fit
Whether you use it for sports, casual, an evening party, or on a regular day, it is important that you wear a watch that is never too tight or never too loose especially for women. For men make sure it fits perfectly.

Parties and other Formal Events Watch
Ladies, aside from a gorgeous bracelet, you can opt for a formal watch. A watch that is suited for formal events should be constructed of a precious metal (silver, gold, or platinum) and make sure the size does not overwhelm your wrist otherwise it will become a distraction and you don’t want your wrist to be overpowering your overall look.

The Sports Watch
I personally wear my sports watch (smart watch) even after my workout. A sports watch is conveniently invented to track progress (steps, heart rate, etc.) while the user is at work. I love how I don’t have to take my phone with me while working out as my smart watch is connected to my phone and I can receive text messages and emails through it, and even calls! Never ever wear your sports watch with your suit or with your formal getup.

The Everyday Watch

Okay, this may be confusing to some because everyday can mean just a casual watch but what if you feel a little girly or dressy on a given day? I would recommend having at least 2 pairs of everyday watch, the kind of rugged one and the fabulous watch as I call it. Check out ZALORA’s selection of Casio watches as it is a pretty cool selection. I love to mix and match outfit so I do not just stick to one everyday watch.

To me a great watch is something that speaks your style without words. I prefer the simple designs and I just love two-toned watches so don’t be surprised to see me sporting most of the time two-toned pieces. So there you go! I hope this helped!

Bodycon Weekend OOTD

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

It was the weekend and I am feeling a little confident and dressy so I decided to sport my bodycon dress though I know I don’t have that perfect body to rock it. But who cares?! I love the dress and my judgement tells me that it looks okay anyway (give it to me just this time okay?).

bodycon dress

A bodycon dress is shortcut for body conscious dress that takes cue from the figure-hugging Herve Leger bandage dress. They say sporting it is a bold statement of self-esteem and body confidence (hahaha! made me laugh at myself for a while there). It is a style that is made to hug every single curve, it’s designed to proudly show off your shape. But seriously, don’t stress yourself too much on having this certain “shape” to wear a bodycon. You don’t have to be a size zero to rock this trend. Here are some tips for you if you plan into sporting a bodycon dress.

Go Dark – if you are a bit conscious with your body, opt for darker shade. Not only it is chic, it is always on trend (take cue on the little black dress). Plus it creates a slimmer figure.

Lock on the waistline – again you don’t have to be a size zero to rock that bodycon. Look for a design that accentuates the waistline. Look slimmer by wearing something that features black or darker panel sides.

black panel sides bodycon

Layer Up – If a bodycon makes you so self-conscious, don’t stress yourself out! layer it up by adding a loose-fitting cardigan or a little oversized jacket. A tailored blazer can also make this sexy look more polished and office-friendly.

Go For Thicker Fabrics – Personally, this is a great way to minimize the bulges you don’t want to show. Choose a more structured design as it skims down your waist and shape over your hips, without creating extra bulges.

Important Note: Wearing the right underwear is very crucial with body con dresses. Make sure you wear the right one. Visible panty lines can be disastrous and distracting!

Style Tips on Wearing White Jeans

Facebooktwittergoogle_plusredditpinterestlinkedinmail

So lately I have been contemplating on sporting white jeans but I was still a little skeptic. I have been avoiding white jeans or should I say wearing white jeans freaks me out for various reasons! I feel like I am prone to be messing it even before leaving home. But now that I am ready to try it, of course I need to check out the best way to sport it. Here are some styles you and I can try.

1. The black and white tandem
This is perhaps the safest combo. Pair your white jeans with black top, whether it’s a shirt or a cutesy blouse. It’s plain, simple, and they much perfectly. The lacey blouse is perfect for a casual but romantic date night :).

2. Go Pastel
Another nice thing with white jeans is it can basically go with any color so you won’t have a problem pairing it with pastel. In fact you can play with the colors from top to bottom! Pair it with either high heels or be more playful and go for strappy wedge. Check out my white and pastel mix and match!

3. White it Out!

Go all white! Personally I don’t think I can pull it off just yet (considering I am just starting with white jeans – I’ll probably go clean-freak with this). Clean, chic, and classy! White it all out!

4. Simple Casual
This I sure can sport. Simple, chic and comfy. The earth-toned color handbag completes the simple, laid back look. Perfect for a sunny day out with family or friends.

Heart’s Wedding Gown

February 15, 2015 – Actress Heart Evangelista and Senator Chiz Escudero tied the knot finally at the romantic Balesin. While I am not really into celebrities weddings and dramas, I am always fascinated with the wedding gowns of their choice.

I love Heart’s Grace Kelly inspired wedding gown by Ezra Santos. It’s very elegant and sophisticated and it fits her personality perfectly. Check out some of the shots of her on her fabulous wedding gown (photos not mine – though I did some enhancements from the original).
