Jazz Up Your Winter Wear With These Pretty Tights and Leggings

Want to know what’s a better way to play up your winter fashion this year? With tights and leggings of course!

Winter is the best season to experiment with tights and leggings, not only do they give you a slimmer silhouette to balance out the bulky jackets and sweaters, they also come in interesting styles that you can easily create many different looks from. From the lacy ones to pop colors types and wild python designs that are made in material of every kind, there is really no lack of choices.

Every woman can certainly find the right type that suits their style, taste and personality.

If you find the terms ‘tights’ and ‘leggings’ confusing, here’s how to differentiate them:

- Tights are generally thinner than leggings, due to the thinner material used.

- Tights are not meant to be worn alone, but are best-matched with a short skirt or mini-dress and paired off with boots or pumps (think stockings).

- Leggings, on the other hand, can be worn alone as a bottom due to their thicker material, and can be matched with a long flowy tunic top or tight-fitted tank tops for those slim enough to carry off.

- Tights cover up the entire feet all the way up to the waist, whereas leggings usually end at the ankles or at the calves/knees for a capri look.

Depending on the type of winter, you can wear both tights or leggings in temperatures above 10 degree Celsius, anything below this temperature will probably need leggings because tights will be too thin to keep your legs warm.

That said, visual examples are the best way to understand what these all mean. HUE, the hosiery specialist, is just the right place to start shopping for your right tights and leggings of high quality. Here are some of our top picks from HUE.

Gorgeous Italian Silk Scarves

Scarves are great accessories that can help to up the elegant factor – think Audrey Hepburn! That’s right, not only are they great as a head accessory, they can also look great on your neck, on your hips or even as a top, if worn correctly. Its a versatile accessory that you can wear to work or play, and did I also mention that you can accessorize your bag with a scarf tied at the bag handles?

Scarves go well with bags. In fact, the logic on bags applies to scarves. Women usually place more emphasis on the quality of their bags more than their clothes. That’s the reason why we go after designer bags because they give us better mileage, so the same goes for scarves. If price is not an issue and you are really after an elegant look, it pays to invest in a piece of fine quality 100% silk scarf with classic designs.

Pitsart’s scarves, made of 100% pure Italian silk, might just be it. They are not made in Milan, but in a lesser known area to people outside the fashion industry – the Lake Como district. It is a place famed for not just their breath-taking scenery, but also their fine and luxury silk production.

Fake Collars

Following closely right after the bib necklace trend, we are seeing a spin-off from it -the fake collars. What are fake collars and how exactly do you wear them? Fake collars are like detachable collars with a button you can fasten at the back of your neck, while some come in the form of a necklace. Due to the fact that they sit high up on your neck, you should wear them with tops or dresses that have a high crew/round neck-lines (no V-necks!).

How To Wear Fake Collars

Fake collars are fashion accessories that will help add interesting details to your otherwise plain tops. They are great for giving your usual tops/dresses an instant makeover or giving the illusion of a completely new top. It can even turn them into more glamorous pieces, especially when paired with more fanciful pearl or rhinestones embellished fake collars. Plain color fake collars can help to create color blocking effect to your top. For example, if you are wearing a white top, pairing it with a plain black fake collar can create that chic monochrome look.

4 Pretty Ways To Wear Head Bands

When you think or see headbands, you think of the prim and proper girl in class who was most likely to get a scholarship at the best universities. Why is this so? Headbands reinforce the stereotype that prim and proper gals are supposed to wear them.

Well then, think again. Headbands have graduated from high school and in fact can be used by career women. There are a number of ways to wear them, in fact. Here are 4 pretty looks you can achieved with head bands.

1) To basically push back your hair

The basic purpose of using a headband is to push back the hair. The locks can be curled or stick straight, but the headband serves a single purpose. It opens up the face thereby making it a favorite among makeup artists.

2) Over a ponytail or a bun

Image Source

Headbands worn over ponytails or buns are simple yet they provide a little more oomph to the hair do. Sometimes they are used to add a little height to the crown, while at other times they are used to pull back the bangs or any other stray hair. Whatever option you choose, ponytail or bun, make it a little messy. You’re after the sexy factor, not the schoolgirl charm.

3) On the crown

This accessory was a popular choice among celebrities who love the bohemian look. Followers include Nicole Richie, Paris Hilton, and Taylor swift. When worn with beach waves or stick straight hair, they look vintage- more like in the ’70′s. When worn with voluminous curls, they’re romantic.

4) Simply placed on top of the head

This works best if your headband has an accent piece on the side. On the side, I say, and not on the middle. It could be a bejeweled figure, lace, a satin ribbon, or stones. The band is placed carefully on top of the crown without messing up the hair.

Your mane is perhaps one of the most noticeable aspects when it comes to first impressions. Given this premise, it is just right that you accessorize when you find it lacking personality. Gone are the days when headbands are a symbol of stereotypical television characters or school girls’ accessories. It is as elegant for the working woman as it is for the blushing bride. Many women swear by its romantic, classic, and elegant look. So is it not just appropriate that it should be included in a lady’s closet?

Choosing the Right Belt

You may think that all belts serve only two functions- to look cute while holding things in place. In fact, there is more to belts than what you think.

Aesthetics

The first thing you might consider when buying belts is how they look. Are they wide? Are they slender? Is the one you’re eyeing on made of leather?

Wide belts look best on full-figured women while thin belts work well to balance out a small or petite frame. Thin belts on large frames emphasize the body while large belts on petite frames eat the girl’s facade up.

When looking for a sturdy belt, look for ones made of genuine leather. You can also opt for patent leather or croc skin for an edgy look. Classic colors to look for are tan or camel, black, and brown. Red, blue, and purple are quirky, but they are not too striking that they can still pull a look together.

How To Wear ‘Em

Belts can be worn with a number of outfits. In fact, you can wear them with dresses to emphasize a waist. This you can do with both body-hugging and A-line skirts. When wearing belts over tops, make sure that your tops are long enough to cover your thighs so that they won’t look to small or too trying hard to pull off a trend.

Contrary to what they always say, your shoes do not always have to match the color of your belt. It looks fine and polished, but a little mix and match goes a long way. Try, for example, a navy belt with tan shoes, or a camel belt with red pumps. The trick is to find a unifying article among them, like, say studs or velvet.

Take a look at how these ladies put their looks together using belts.

What Goes Well With Idle Hands? Bangles!

So your hands are perfectly manicured. What else is there to add? Bangles.

Bangles are, in essence, bracelets. Compared to ones made with chain links, bangles hold its shape and are made to be worn layered with other bracelets.

Most designs are made so that they rest just above the wrist. Some, however, are made to stay put on the forearm. Bangles can be made of silver, gold, plastic, or wood- but despite the variety of materials, each goes well as part of a set.

 Notice how a gold bangle serves as an accent piece when placed on the forearm? This is how it should look when placed as an accent piece on the forearm. Keep it simple by leaving the rest of the arm without embellishments.

Another way to wear bangles is to wear one that matches the color of your ensemble. It may be in a different pattern such as checkered black and white over stripes, but it will definitely pull the look together.

Wearing a number of bangles over another is another way to make the look work. Make sure that they have a unifying element, such as silver on the first picture and gold on the second. The same color family in terms of design or a similarity or continuity in pattern will also pull them together.

No matter what you’re wearing, bangles are one way to accessorize your outfit. So make sure to stock up on them so that you’ll never run out of options.

The most basic accessory is a belt, but that’s more of a necessity than an accessory.  For now, the focus will be accessories that add some style and flair to any outfit.

Here’s  some accessories that can enhance a man’s look if worn in the right manner – Scarves, Ties, Hats, Suspenders/Braces, Shades, Glasses, and Out-of-the-box accessories.  Some good fashion sense is needed her because it is a fine line between something matching of fashion accessories to create an outfit that is pleasing to the eye versus a mess of different fabrics and styles worn in the wrong way.

Although all of these Korean fashion accessories can turn a simple outfit into something unique, the focus for now is going to be on scarves.  The reason for this is simple.  It is beginning to be cold outside and everyone wears a scarf, but not everyone knows how to use a scarf to make them look good. Men can really look good and fashionable by wearing the right scarf in the right way.

Scarves have been worn for a long time, but recently have began to gain popularity with the Korean men in South Korea.  There are also numerous Korean celebrities being seen sporting them and it’s a trend that is brewing in Korea.

Do keep in mind that plaid scarves may give off a more hip-hop look. If it’s for professional or work related purposes, then plain color scarves are more appropriate. Dark or neutral color plain scarves are always a safe bet. If you want a more unique look that stands out, perhaps you can opt for more colorful scarves like dark purple, maroon or blue. A rule of thumb is to get silk-type scarves that are more neutral in color and that you could possibly wear years from now. The scarf is a timeless piece of Korean fashion accessory and is something that the South Korean men know how to wear and will possibly wear it for a long time.
