Go Wild With Leggings

Summer is the best time to get adventurous and have little fun with your dressing. Afterall, you only have a few months to do so before autumn comes around the corner (and you know time flies right?).

Why try out cool summer fashion trends like printed leggings? The leggings available in the market right now are vast that you can get an overload of choices and end up getting tired just browsing through online.

In this post, we have curated some of the leggings that we think are the most quirky, cute and unique ones. Just remember to go easy on your top when you are wearing a visually intensive item like these printed leggings.

Unless you want to look like you just came out from the gym, it’s best is to match it with a plain long tunic or short dress that falls somewhere between your knees and your crotch. Wear something as plain as possible in a single color without any details.

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.

Quick Tips On How To Wear Skinny Jeans

You see them on cute, round bums and think that it’s too hard for you to pull off. Here’s a secret: skinny jeans are a staple. You might have your own doubts about this, but it’s quite easy to play around with your skinnies. All you need is a good color palette to choose from. Here’s how to pull them off:

Image Source

Stretch

You want to look for skinnies that have at least 30% polyester so that it allows a little stretch while preventing lumps and bulges on your legs. Jeggings are nowhere near skinny jeans as it’s more elastic and fragile than skinny jeans. The good thing about getting jeans instead of jeggings is that they last longer as they’re less elastic and hold their shape longer.

Fit

You want skinny jeans that follow the contour of your body. This being said, make sure that they cling nicely to the legs and waist. To know if you got the right pair, move around in different positions- sit down, bend over, walk, and raise your legs up one at a time. If the waist stays in place, you’ve got that covered. The legs and crotch should cling as close to the body as possible.

Color

If you are not that adventurous with bright colors, you can pick skinny jeans in three safe materials or colors: black, khaki, and denim. The wash should be simple. If you have bulky thighs, go for a wash that’s dark at the sides and gradually goes lighter at the center. Another option is to wear dark washes. If you have slender legs, faded jeans add width.

Shoes

You can pair skinny jeans with pumps and make your legs look like they go for miles. On the other hand, you can wear them with comfy ballet flats for a casual day doing errands. Wedges? Yes they work with these babies too. As for boots, whatever the length, the skinnies are willing to oblige. A word of caution though. Skinny jeans are tight, slimming, and slender. So it’s better to wear them with shoes that create width. Those stilettos are probably not the best pair of shoes to wear since they are too thin to balance out the silhouette of the skinny jeans.

Tops

When pairing tops with these jeans, you have a whole lot of things to consider. First, if you’re wearing pumps, go for dressier slim-fitting tops to pull the look together. You have a whole lot of choices when wearing flats, boots, or wedges.

One caution is that skinny jeans that to emphasis your bulges and tummy if you have got one, especially if they are low-waisted or the waist-band is a little tight. If you have such problem, you can hide them with a peplum top (flared ruffle attached to the waistline of a top or blouse), or a slightly looser chiffon/cotton top that falls just below your tummy. Since skinny jeans are skin tight, the loose top will be able to balance out your entire look.

See? Skinny jeans are not just for slim people with perfect bums. In fact, if you pair it right and choose the right wash, color and fit, it will work its magic on you.

How To Look Good In Bikinis

Bikinis are very unforgiving pieces of clothing. Wear the wrong one and you look fat. Wear the right one, and you look lik Venus coming out from the water. That itsy bitsy teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini is as classic as it can get, but there are rules to it.

The traditional bikini is a triangle otherwise known as a string bikini. Bandeaus, boy shorts, and halters are of a different style, but all of these fall under the swimsuit category.

When choosing a bikini, keep tree things in check- your chest, your cheeks, and your curves.

Choose a bikini that fits snug right at the chest. A size too small gives way for that unsightly sideboob spilling out of the triangle. One that is too loose is a wardrobe malfunction in the waiting once you hit the waves.

Next, make sure that your butt cheeks are fully covered. Thongs are just a bit too much exposure, and it’s not classy at all. Save some room for the imagination. When fitting your bikini, move about and try different positions. Make sure that the top and the bottom stay in place and do not slip up or down.

Lastly, consider your body type. Florals and frills on the chest make it look larger; when placed at the bottom, it gives you a fuller hip and behind.

Once you know what size fits you perfectly, choosing the design should be your next concern. If you’re looking to boost your bust, look for a top that has ruffles or beading. This creates a “bulky” chest that gives the illusion of a larger cup size. If you are looking to balance out the chest, go for bottoms that have ruffles or beading. It’s all about finding a strategic part of your body to enhance or to play down. Keep in mind that patterns make something look larger while plain colors and vertical stripes make things look thinner.

String and triangle bikinis are best for women who are confident showing off a little more of their body. Otherwise, if you cringe at the thought of having your belly slip over the garter or showing off stretch marks, there are other styles for you, such as a fuller piece like boyleg bottom, tankini or crop bikini top. Remember that there is always a style that fits your body shape . If that teeny weeny yellow polka dot bikini just isn’t working your frame, drop it and look for another.

Prim and Proper in Oxfords

There is nothing more pleasing to the eyes than a crisp and tailor-fitted button-down oxford shirt. It’s clean, it’s classic, but most of all it’s a versatile piece of clothing.

Office wear to Casual wear

Oxford shirts have always been an office staple for career women. They can be worn tucked in pencil skirts or inside blazers and suits. As its popularity soared, it began to find its place in casual wear thanks to brands such as Ralph Lauren.

Oxford shirts have been so popular due to its versatility. Take your cues from how these women wear theirs.

Pairing it off

On a lazy day, you can wear Oxfords with flats, shorts, shirts, or jeans. Fold the sleeves up, tuck the shirt in or pull it out, and let your hair down.

For work, tuck it in your slacks or skirt for a more polished look. It goes well with either heels or flats, so it’s pretty safe to say that you’ve picked the right top for any bottom.

Either way, get them in solid colors with as little insignia as possible. Stripes or other patterns take the eyes away from what is simple, elegant, and understated.

So, how do you wear your Oxfords?

The Little Black Dress

What is the best thing to have in your closet? Fashion authority would always tell you that it’s the little black dress that would complete every closet. Perhaps the most popular LBD came into fashion when Audrey Hepburn’s character Holly Golightly in the classic Breakfast at Tiffany’s.

If you look at her ensemble, it is genuinely effortless at looking chic, sophisticated, and elegant. Well, not all little black dresses give off the same aura, so to say. So here’s how to emulate that classic look that has transcended decades.

Silhouette

A classic black dress is simple and understated. Think of it as a blank canvass on which any color would pop. You may opt for frills such as asymmetric cuts, off-shoulders, and strapless numbers. Lengths may differ, from micro minis to tea length- it’s all up to you. The color is slimming enough and forgiving of curves, so choose one that covers up your flaws and accentuates your assets. There is, however, one style that you could go to for almost any occasion – the shift. The cut hugs your body in strategic places such as the waist, the tush, and the chest. It also provides ample coverage that’s suitable both for work and for play.

Shoes

Little black dresses that are cut in shifts go well with pumps in dark and jewel tones. Stilettos are too thin and make you top heavy, so opt for full coverage of the foot. If you want a little exposure, go for peep-toes.

Bags

Bags can be all out bedazzling with sequins, stones, and glitter. Or they can be in silk of chiffon. Your choice. It’s best to go small, so opt for small purses or clutches. Little details such as ribbons, lace, rhinestones, and such are also welcome. Make sure, however, that it goes well with all your other accessories. Don’t let it clash with them!

Accessories and Jewelry

This is where you can indulge. Remember, little black dresses are blank canvasses so you can go and have a little fun with the accessories and jewelry. Keep in mind, though, that you ought to look like a woman on a night out, not a Christmas tree. If you’re going for chandelier earrings, let go of the necklace. If you’re going for a chunky necklace, pair it with studs. Bracelets or bangles, your choice. Wear it with a watch on the other hand, and it’s sophisticated. Headbands, clips, and brooches add a little touch of personality as well, so if you have the room for these, go for it.

There are tons of looks that you can create using the trusty little black dress. And I’m pretty sure that while planning your look, you’ll have plenty more ideas of what to wear the next time you bring it out. So don’t just put it at the back of your closet and save it for formal dinners. Little black dresses are for all occasions, and you might just find that you’ll want to wear it every chance you get.
