    A Few Winter Coat Buying Tips

    Everyone needs at least one fashionable winter coat in their wardrobe. The chances are you will be wearing it every day, which makes choosing a nice one particularly important. The tips below are designed to help you to find a good quality, practical and nice-looking coat that you will enjoy wearing, without having to spend a fortune.

    Shop during sales

    The Black Friday sales are coming up soon. They are the perfect place to find expensive items like winter coats, at bargain prices. The trick to getting the best deals is to go online to your favourite retailer’s sites and make a note of the ones you particularly like. On the first day of the sale, get up early, go online and search for those items. If they are cheap enough, just click the link and buy them. The Black Friday and Cyber Monday sales provide you with a great chance to make a start on your Christmas shopping. You will pick up some nice, but inexpensive presents as well as get a better idea of what is available in the shops. This will really help you to find gifts for those people in your circle that you normally struggle to buy for.

    Measure yourself before you go shopping

    Before you go shopping take the time to measure yourself properly. The chances are that, over the course of the year, you will have changed shape quite a bit. So, it is always wise to re-measure yourself, each year. When you buy your coat, ensure that it is big enough to allow you to wear a jumper or lightweight jacket underneath. I know that sounds obvious, but you would be surprised by how many people forget to do this.

    Practical considerations

    Style is an important consideration, but your coat must be practical as well. Ideally, you want to be able to wear it every day.

    Before you go shopping think about how you are going to be using it. Doing this will help you to buy the right type of jacket. For example, if you are going to wear it for a long commute to work you will want to be able to button or zip it right up.

    If you have already bought your winter boots, be sure to choose a coat that matches them. Look for one that fits in well with the style and colour of the rest of your winter wardrobe.

    Choose a style (winter coat) that flatters you

    It is important to choose a coat that is cut in a way that flatters you and suits your sense of style. The advice in this women´s fashion magazine article will help you to quickly work out which cuts are likely to work best for you. Working this out before you go shopping will save you from trying on coats and jackets that are very unlikely to look good on you. Provided you follow the tips above you will have no difficulty in looking fantastic and staying warm, this winter.

    8 Things Your Casual Wear Wardrobe Needs in 2017

    Just because you’re supposed to be rocking up to an event in casual wear, doesn’t mean you should look any less awesome. Having the right items in your casual wear wardrobe will ensure you look bang on trend and that you feel great. There’s no need to wear an oversized sweater and a pair of tracksuit bottoms (unless they’re the high fashion kind!). Here are 8 things your casual wear wardrobe needs in 2017:

    Retro Sportswear

    Retro sportswear is a huge thing these days. It’s been all over the catwalks, in the magazines, and even the celebrities have gotten in on the trend. If you’re familiar with Last Of The Shadow Puppets, you’ll know that they pull off this trend very well. If you’d rather not wear a matching tracksuit, a simple retro tracksuit top will look great with jeans.

    Distressed Jeans

    Just about everybody is wearing distressed jeans. You can’t turn around without seeing somebody wearing a pair of jeans covered in holes. You don’t necessarily need to go for the super-holey kind, but you should definitely look at jeans that appear more worn than they are.

    A Military Jacket

    A military jacket is perfect for throwing on with your distressed jeans for a weekend of shopping or even going out for a few drinks with friends. You can get military jacket from this site if you simply can’t wait to own one. There are many different types though, so know which kind you like and what suits you before you purchase!

    A Plaid Shirt

    Plaid shirts haven’t really gone anywhere over the years, so purchasing one of these bad boys could be a great investment. You can wear it tied around your waist, layer it up with a vest top, or button it up depending on what look you’re going for. They can be worn multiple ways, which is what makes them such a great addition to any casual wardrobe!

    A Puffa Jacket

    Yep, puffa jackets are back guys. Both men and women are sporting classic looking puffa jackets, and they’re bound to keep you warm when the weather gets a little cooler.

    A 70s Shirt

    It’s a 70s revival right now, didn’t you know! Suede shirts, shirts patterned with flowers, and shirts with big collars are all hugely popular. With the right 70s shirt, you’ll look worthy of this year’s catwalks.

    Bell Bottoms

    Now you’ve got your 70s shirt, why not go the whole hog? Get yourself some bell bottoms! Wearing them both together will look fantastic, although you’ll need to be careful that you don’t look like you’re doing fancy dress. Who cares if you are anyway? You can have fun with this item!

    A Light Wash Denim Jacket

    Finally, a light wash denim jacket is the perfect jacket to throw on whether you’re off out to meet friends for food or on a date. It can be worn during the day and night, and the right fit will last for years. These jackets are endlessly stylish!

    Responsible And Affordable Clothes Shopping

    We don’t like to think about it too much, but somewhere in the back of our minds, we know we’re causing harm to the world. A cheap, but stylish blouse that makes us feel amazing was likely made by a poor girl in a factory with appalling conditions. As we become more conscious about our purchases; we have the power to change the industry for the better, and force manufacturers to change their working conditions. One way to do this is by giving our money to companies that enforce responsible and safe conditions for their workers and still generate high-quality products. Here are just a few ways you can be a more conscientious shopper, while still looking fabulous when you walk down the street.

    clothes shopping

    Read the labels

    You don’t have to be a full-on vegan to care about the animals that make your clothes. Real leather and suede are made from the skin and hides of animals. Fur is taken from animals raised or trapped specifically for their coats. Even silk is problematic; it’s made from a fiber that is naturally secreted by silkworms, but sometimes the worms are boiled alive to extract extra amounts of silk to meet demand. Fortunately, you don’t have to shop in specialty stores to make sure your clothes are cruelty-free. All you have to do is read the label. The next time you’re shopping for a new blouse, there will be information on the label telling you whether it’s made from 100 percent polyester, or if it contains 35 percent wool.

    Environmentally friendly

    Fashion trends rise and fall every year, and while some older fashions are put out in the bargain bin for you to buy at incredible discounts, some things end up in the bin and eventually contribute to ever-growing tips. Sunglasses, for example, change style from year to year, but the materials aren’t biodegradable, which means they’re going to lie on those rubbish piles for years to come. Fortunately, some conscientious designers have created bamboo sunglasses, which means that they will be made from a sustainable material that requires far fewer resources to grow than wood or synthetic materials like plastic. Bamboo grows faster than other sources and requires very minimal maintenance, so it is the cheapest and most responsible option by far. The only way to get the fashion industry to adjust their policies to incorporate bamboo and other environmentally friendly resources is by giving your money to companies that already have these policies in place.

    shopping bags

    Shoes

    It’s great when you start making your shopping more cruelty-free. There is even a growing market for vegetarian and vegan shoes, so choosing between durable shoes and being cruelty-free might soon be a thing of the past, and all boots will be made for walking.

    Finally, you don’t have to go far to be a responsible clothes shopper. Mango, Zara, H&M, and Topshop are great examples of stores that make cruelty free and ethical clothing, proving that responsible choices are affordable and accessible.

    The Best Party Wear Trends to Keep Your Eye on This Autumn/Winter

    It’s kind of sad to think that the summer is coming to an end. The temperatures will soon start to drop and the nights will draw in quicker. But while the shorts and summer dresses get packed away, the little black dress and heels come out as we welcome party season!
     
    Most retailers have already started to stock party shoes, dresses and accessories and you’ll find plenty of choice in a range of styles.
     
    If you’re as excited as I am, check out all my favourite trends ahead of the season…

    Something sparkly

    As you’d expect, there will be plenty of sparkles this winter. Shimmering gold and silver dresses are everywhere. They are all styled differently but are all eye-wateringly shiny. Naturally, it is not a look that will appeal to everyone, but an awful lot of us will give these exciting fabrics a go.
     

    Shiny shoes

    Naturally, if you have a glittery dress you need a pair of shiny shoes to go with them. Dressy patent leather court shoes in gold or silver are everywhere. Diamante open-toed shoes are also widely available. If you are not keen on shiny footwear, do not worry because velvet will also be a head-turner at parties too across the Christmas period.

    For the ultimate bang, look for a pair of Disco ball boots. Versions of these crazy glittering knee-length boots have been cropping up on catwalks, across the world, over the past few weeks. It’s a trend that’s brave, but it’s also bold and beautiful.

    Little black dresses with a twist

    As ever, the little black dress is going to be a party favourite. Highly tailored, mid-length or long dresses are set to be big this year, with the possibility that velvet will start to make a bit of a comeback. This comfortable, flexible fabric is fantastic for dance Divas. They really enjoy the freedom of movement that velvet offers.

    Tweed anyone?

    One of the oddest trends is the incorporation of what is normally considered staid fabrics into party dresses. Stella McCartney has led the way in showing how combining different traditional tweeds and tartans to create striking dresses that could turn heads at the office party. It is too early to say if this interesting design idea will be taken up by High Street retailers, though. If you see one, try it on. It is a look that has the potential to work for all body types and one that will certainly turn heads.

    Party trousers

    If dresses are not your favourite option for a party, do not worry. Most fashion designers have opted to include trousers in their partywear ranges this year. A pair of baggy-legged black trousers will look great paired with a wide belt and a shiny fitted top. The best thing about this party outfit is that you can get away with wearing black baseball boots. So, you can dance all night without worrying about waking up with feet that are covered in blisters.

    Picking your perfect party outfit

    As you can see, you really are spoilt for choice. The designers have come up with something for everyone. However, if you would like a bit more guidance about buying an outfit for a party, you can find it here.

    Tips To Choose the Mother of the Bride Dress

    The mother of the brides was expected to wear a matronly dress in the earlier times. They used to wear washed out shades or very light colors that were thought to be perfect for their age. But that happened in the distant past. Now, people have become more liberal and thankfully there are not many restrictions on choosing the dresses and many fashionable clothes that are available in retail shops and online stores are really overwhelming. Thus, when you go out to choose the dresses for the mother of the bride you can follow the underlying tips.

    Coastal Scents Revealed 2 Eye Shadow Palette Review and Swatches


    ThCoastalScents Revealed 2 Eye Shadow Palette is housed in a slim rectangular shaped cardboard compact. It retails for $19.95 but luckily I snagged it during a 48 hour sale when it was just released for $9.95 without shipping.


    The palette features a mixture of 20 neutral eye shadows that varies from mattes and shimmers with sparkly finishes. This palette has a range of pinks, rose gold, cranberries and taupe shades comparing to the first revealed palette that contained gold and bronze.

    The eye shadows vary in formula but they both contain fairly warm shades of shadows. The matte shadows are soft, smooth, silky and easy to apply and blend while the shimmers tend to apply more metallic with a bit of a frosty finish. 

    Without a primer the matte shade tend to fade and crease but the shimmer didn’t fade or crease at all. The pigmentation is excellent and all the shades has a smooth, velvety texture. The eye shadow quality is amazing and the shade range is good for a soft eye or dramatic look.
