“Walking in the Winter Wonderland!”

First up, the jackets.

Jackets have different kinds of thickness and one that will best warm you on a winter time are the Fur Jackets. As baggy as you think they might look, they pretty much give you that comfort and warmth you are looking for to fight of the cold bites of winter.

In order to warm up your legs this winter, you can wear thick pants or leggings, but some people just can’t compromise fashion and still want to wear their shorts and skirts in winter.

As such, wearing knee-high boots will definitely help. If high boots are too uncomfortable to you, you can also go for leg warmers to protect your legs from the cold.

2 Types Of Korean Men That We Love

As diverse as the world can be, you might think that the male population has also a lot of different classifications. But if you ask me, there is only two types of guys in this world. And that is the “Manly” ones, and the ones not so manly enough that I choose to call the “Cute” ones.

In the sense of fashion, these two types also has different way of dressing up. Here are a few fashion points that simply differentiates one from the other.

1. Manly/Classy Types:

These men are simply classy in everything that they wear and look put together in whatever ensemble they are wearing. Monochromatic colors and a classy fitted jacket or blazer is a common staple in their wardrobe. 

These jackets are in style almost every season. They can even pair them with slacks or even denim pants.

Something that is also in style among the manly types are the cardigans. Well we can probably say, if it’s not the jacket then it’s the cardigan in classic tones like white, brown, black, grey or navy.

Another key item in manly men’s clothing are their fitted long sleeve shirts that show off their lean and toned bodies (usually men who are in good shape will wear these). They usually wear them full or roll the sleeves up to their upper arms to show some of those muscles that they’ve been working hard on. 

So these are the manly types ,and their classic dressing will capture the hearts of many girls with their manly charisma.

2. Cutie Man types:

Now, this second type of guys are the ones who like to wear cool things comfortably and freely. Their fashion staples are usually the simple shirts, sweaters and denim pants.

They like to wear shirts paired with their tattered jeans or even jagger pants. Sweat shirts are also a common thing in their fashion.

Another key piece in their fashion is the beanies or snapbacks. These accessories help to enhance their style and cool factor.

In a more formal sense, these cutie guys can also move away from the baggy clothes. They also go for those short sleeved polos in bright colours and patterns, and they sweep the hearts of girls with their cute charm along the way.

So which type do you prefer?

New Hallyu Trend – Face Masks and Airport Fashion

In this modern world where we always strive for perfection, there’s just flaws that we can’t change, thus we try cover them up.

But what these kpop stars do, who are already so close to perfect, doesn’t really succeed in covering up, instead they just shine more under those covers.

Now let’s check out some of these Hallyu stars and their airport fashion, which include covering half of their faces with cool face masks.

Here are some celebs who still look as stunning and beautiful, despite hiding behind the covers of their faces.

1. Mark Tuan (GOT7)

We just can’t deny that Mark is the face of GOT7. In his black leather jacket and beanie that pairs with his half covered face, his eyes most definitely still shines bright giving off his radiant beauty to the world.

No matter how hard he might try, there’s just no cover up that can hide his beauty.

2. Krystal Jung (f(x))

Simplicity is truly a beauty for this Kpop star. With just a white shirt, jeans, jacket on one arm and a sling bag on the other, even though her face is half covered with a mask, I can still say she’s a head turner. Indeed hiding her beauty only shows it more.

3. Song Mino (Winner)

A printed face mask can surely add a point to his airport fashion. Song Mino wearing a white shirt under his denim jacket and leather vest with a snap back on his head as his airport fashion. On top of those layers, his eye smile never loses its beauty.

4. CL (2ne1)

Now this lady is definitely a fashion goddess, thus her airport fashion never disappoints. She’s wearing a black top under a while button up shirt, cut out pants, back shoes, a purse with her shades and face mask that goes with all of that. She might really be almost totally covered, but we can’t deny that her fashion sense is superior!

5. Park Chanyeol (EXO)

Park Chanyeol (EXO)

Now this one’s definitely a cutie. Chanyeol rocks his airport fashion with a bear mouth printed face mask. With his cupid-like curly hair, it is no doubt this bear mouth printed face mask would get all the attention in the airport. How can a bear look so cute?

6. Park Bom (2ne1)

Park Bom (2ne1)

Winter is a season where you should definitely protect yourself from the impending threats of colds and other diseases. Thus, Park Bom and her airport fashion is totally prepared for that. Wearing a beige trench coat, jeans, a pair of black pumps and a mask to shoo off unwanted sickness, Park Bom’s airport fashion is definitely something you want to try wearing as well.

There are a lot of reasons why these stars try to cover their faces. It might be because they are protecting their voices from the impending threat of cough and sore throat. Maybe because they lack make up, or don’t want to inhale anything that might risk their health; we don’t really know.

Well, even as they are concealed, they still look as bright and gorgeous!

How To Wear Peplum Dresses

how-to-wear-peplum-tops

After Michelle Williams showcasing her fabulous peplum gown on the Oscar red capet, trend of peplum seem to have a resurgence. With a flared ruffle around the waist, lots of dresses tailored in this way are everywhere this spring. For a simple lady-like take on this trend, look no further than the newest stylish fashion icon Kate Middleton, who was recently spotted wearing a peplum dress. Here we take a further dig into this trend. Read on to check them out!

How to Wear Peplum Dresses?

1. Keep the rest of your outfit simple. Since the peplum itself is very sophisticated, it is best to opt for simple accessories. This is a good rule to avoid looking bulky or overwhelm the peplum.
2. Be careful with proportions. Your look can totally go wrong if the proportions are off, so it is best to pick out something balance out for your peplum frocks.
3. Be confident! Due to the fact that peplum dress is somewhat figure-hugging, draws attention to the waistline, proponents of this trend argue that only slim women can pull off this dress. But it shouldn’t! Peplum dresses are stylish and unexpected, can be very flattering, and will look awesome when worn with confidence. No matter how you wear it, peplum gives off a flirty, feminine vibe.

Getting the Look With Peplum Party Dress

Inspired by a look Emma Watson wore earlier, the perfect peplum party dress in sparkly sequins would be vibrant and too cute for words. The sequins add a splash of glamour to a simple skirt, making it more night-out appropriate. Pair with simple jewelry and slip into some stilettos for a look that is girly, yet totally chic.

Getting the Look With Peplum Formal Dress

In the spirit of our mad hunts to find the perfect prom look, it is perfect to go for a peplum dress which can give your body an hourglass shape. It is classy, mature and feminine. Pull out all the stops with some sparkly jewelry. For a more elegant effect, choose a pair of trendy high heels to rock your look at the prom.

Essential Tips On Building a Great Style

Fashion Trends

In modern society, styles and fashions come and go in the blink of an eye. That said, you can learn to make sense of it all. You need not be lost about fashion, keep reading for more tips to keep ahead of the style game.

Classics Never Fail

For the bulk of the budget you have for fashion, buy classics and basics. Target items that are always in fashion, yet work with other styles as well. A black, basic pencil skirt is always in style and can be updated with jackets and tops that follow the trends of a particular season.

For instance, fitted classic white shirts are good investment. You can very easily dress up darker colored jeans by putting on a white shirt and classy high heels. You can also wear colored jeans, but only if you’re trying to achieve a casual look. To maintain your white shirts, bleach them to keep the look new and bright. Just make sure that you don’t mix it with any your colored clothing during laundry or bleach the wrong clothes on accident.

Invest In Good Classic Pieces, Go Easy With Trendy Pieces

It’s great to stay updated with the new fashion trends in the industry. Style is constantly changing, so keep up with fashion magazines to learn about the latest trends. This is not about following fashion blindly, as not every pieces in trend will suit your personality. Assess what trends will suit your style most and can be matched with classic pieces. As a rule of thumb, always spend less on trendy pieces because they come and go, but invest more in quality classics.

Good Fit Is Everything

Watch out for sizing. Never purchase an item of clothing without seeing how you look in it. Body measurements are not the guide for clothing sizes anymore. Every brand has its own fit. If purchasing your clothing online is your best choice, make sure you study the sizing charts on the website. Also make sure that all of the clothing you buy can be returned.

Don’t buy an item of clothing just because it is on sale for a great price. Remember, no dress or other clothing item out there is ever worth purchasing unless it fits your fashion sense perfectly and accentuates your body. It’ll just end up collecting dust in the closet because you won’t wear it, which is wasting your money.

Your Hairstyle can Make or Break Your Image

Many are under the impression that fashion only pertains to clothes. Hair is just as important as anything that is being worn and can make the difference between a great look and a bad one. You need to invest in proper hair care products and ensure that your hair style stays current and is a complement to your daily style.

Power Of Illusion

If you are wearing a plus size and want to look smaller, stay away from floral patterns with large shapes and flowers. Large shapes accentuate size, which is not flattering. Find a dress with smaller patterns to reduce the emphasis on your body size and more on the detail.

If you are overweight and want to look skinnier, wear a blouse in black or a very dark color over a dark-colored skirt. This will mask your look so that you are not emphasizing bulges. An elastic waistband in your skirt provides more comfort.

Style On a Budget

If money is an issue, don’t let it hold you back. Either spend more time hunting more stylish bargain clothes, or simply hold a clothes swap party with your girl friends. They may be willing to part with fashionable items they have tired of. Not only you are doing the environment a great favor, you can also gather some awesome fashionable pieces for free.

Your Signature Style

Create a style that is unique. Many people follow the trends set by others, but truly original fashionista develop their own sense of style. This may not work for everyone, but if you feel like you can handle it, people will admire you for doing your own thing.

Don’t let the remarks of others get you down. Not everyone has to look like they belong in Hollywood. As long as you dress in the way that feels comfortable to you, then others will appreciate your style.

There is no such thing as being perfectly fashionable. First, there are no perfect people, and it is an unattainable goal. If you focus on perfection, you lose the freedom to be yourself. Make your style your own and don’t try to be perfect.
