Women’s Handbags – Handbags That Flatter Your Body Shape and Size

Posted By: ivatanaindo

Handbags, next to diamonds and maybe shoes, are a woman’s best friend. Not only are they used to hold everything that we hold dear, from our cellular phones to our credit cards, our palm pilots to the papers that will spell the difference between promotion and demotion. Let’s face it, can you imagine a world without the women’s handbag as we know it?

Today, women handbags are not only “receptacles” of your prized possessions but also fashion statements. Handbags are often used to express moods, individuality, style and status. And even though, it is not really worn so close to the body like bloused, skirts and jeans, there are still shapes and styles of women’s handbags that may be flattering and unflattering to a person. Believe it or not, the handbag that you carry can actually add on or lessen the weight that you appear to carry.

Read on and find out just how to choose the perfect shape, size and style of women handbag that will fit your body type and personal style.

Look at the shape.
Choose the shape that is opposite your body type. For instance, if you are tall and thin, look for bags that are more on the rounded side like the hobo or those that are a bit unstructured. This will complement your figure as it would provide a sharp contrast to your body. If on the other hand, you are on the short and heavy side, it is good to carry women handbags that are tall, rectangular or those with really defined shapes. Long and sleek designs will help counterbalance your more rounded figure. Of course, there is no need to buy women handbags that are absolutely reed thin or those with really sharp edges. Silhouettes in soft fabrics and leathers can do the trick. Just remember to stay away from women handbags with rounded designs.

Think of the size
The size of your bag should complement your size. While the shape should be contrasting and complementing, the size should be in proportion. If for example you are quite tall and big for your age, it would be really awkward for you to carry this really small handbag. The same goes with a really petite person while carrying this really big bag. Awkward. Awkward. Awkward.

Closefitting women handbags or those that can be fit right under the arm at breast level can only look great with women who are slim and those who want to emphasize their cleavage. Using these kinds of women handbags are discouraged for people who have big arms and big busts as the short handles tend to emphasize the large sizes. Remember that the length of the handbag or shoulder bag will always accentuate the part it comes near with. If, for instance, the bag hits your bottom half or hip area, then that area of your body will become more focused as the eyes are naturally drawn to it.

Most women look great with handbags and shoulder bags that end in mid-torso as it flatters the waist. To determine if the length of the strap fits you, try it out. If your arm feels cramped, then it is too short. Try out the bag in the mirror and see for yourself if the bag is flattering to you.

Posted By: ivatanaindo

‘A pair of new shoes might not cure a broken heart or soothe a tension headache but they will relieve the symptoms and chase away the blues’ –these words were written by the famous Fashion critic, Holly Brubach. Well this statement reflects that shoes are of immense importance and they are an integral part of fashion. The origin of women shoes dates back to before Christ. In some parts of the world, they are a symbol of status.

Women are especially finicky about shoes compared to men. Besides jewelry, purses and clothes, there is definitely something special about women shoes. With the passage of time, women’s shoes have changed. At a regular intervals we usually see a new trend in shoes. Very interestingly, each new style is a reinvention of fashions from decades ago with some added innovation and twist in design.

Apart from style and designs of women shoes, another important aspect that needs to be considered, is the cost. We all want or need affordable shoes, especially for daily wear but we still want something stylish. Cheap women’s shoes are not only affordable but they can be designer inspired and in vogue.

If you want a few pairs of contemporary designer shoes, but have a tight budget, then look at the different cheap women’s shoes available. Although everyone covets branded shoes, but owing to a limited budget, cheap women’s shoes are certainly the best pick.

So if you envy the pair of shoes that your friend owns, don’t worry, you can also have an equally eye-catching pair of women’s shoes –all you need to do is to survey the market and do some research and then pick the best pair for you.

There are several shoe stores that have a number of shoes available below 20$. You can also make your purchases online. Owning cheap women’s shoes is not at all difficult. Even though it might take a little research to make the ideal purchase but you will soon realize that it’s worth it!

Usually, online stores sell relatively cheap women’s shoes. They can afford to offer reasonable discounts because they don’t have to invest on floor costs or in house assistants. These online stores have hundreds of varieties of shoes that people from different parts of the world purchase. Thus they can afford to offer reasonably cheaper prices. Also, the online stores have special arrangements with several designers and so they can obtain somewhat discounted prices on shoes.

The discount prices usually vary in the range 25%-40%. However, be careful that you buy genuine shoes and do not end up buying the fake ones. If there is an excessively low price, then there is a big possibility of the shoes being a sham.

Also, try not to order replica designer shoes. The chief reason being that these replica designer shoes may harm your feet. The quality of materials in the shoes determines their comfort. So buying the replica shoes means that you will not only waste money but also you will not feel comfortable.

Keeping the above tips in mind while shoe shopping will make you the owner of a huge collection of some wonderful pairs of women’s shoes at cheap prices. Spend some time but less money and you can definitely bag the best picks one could ever find.

Womens Shirts

Posted By: ivatanaindo

Women’s tops are offered by most clothing retailers.  One of the most popular types of women’s tops that are offered by vendors are t-shirts.  When you are shopping for t-shirts it is important to look for the size, color, design, and style that is right for the woman that you are shopping for.

The first thing that you will want to look for in a women’s t-shirt is that it is the right style.  There are many different styles to choose from including: long tees, short sleeve tees, baby doll tees, vintage tees, and puff sleeve t-shirts.  In addition to the style of the t-shirt you may also want to look for designer tees.

The second thing that you will want to look for when shopping for a t-shirt is that it offers a color palette and design that will fit into your wardrobe and that also is appealing to you.  If you will be using the t-shirt as a layering piece then you may want to buy several t-shirts in a variety of colors that compliment the other existing pieces in your wardrobe. If the t-shirt will be worn to work then you will need to make sure that its color and design are appropriate for a work environment.  On the other hand, if you are looking for a fun casual t-shirt then you may want to look for one that offers a funky color and design.

The final thing that you will want to look for when shopping for women’s tops of any kind is that they are the right size.  Sizes seem to vary from designer to designer so if you are not familiar with the designer of the t-shirt that you are interested in it will be important for you to try on that shirt to make sure that it fits properly.  If you are shopping online you will need to use the site’s sizing chart to find the proper size for you.

Slimming Fashion Tips For Plus Size Women

Posted By: ivatanaindo

We all want to look our best, whether we’re short and slim or tall and heavier. Here are a few tips I’ve collected for plus size women that will help us look our best.

Pants

Choose pants that are long enough for you. If your pants are too short, it visually cuts the length of your legs. The longer your legs look, the slimmer they’ll appear.

Also choose pants that fit you well, not too tight or clingy. Fabrics that are too thin tend to cling to your legs and reveal bumps we’d rather keep out of sight.

Choose pants that are either boot cut, wider legged or flared at the bottom. The boot cut is slimming, while the wider cuts also add a slimming effect by keeping a visual straight line from our hips to our ankles. The worst choice would be a tight, tapered pant leg bottom as this enhances the width of your hips and thighs.

Capri pants are very slimming as well if they’re the right length. Choose a style where the bottom of the pant ends a few inches above your ankles but below the widest part of your calves.

Skirts

Choose skirts that rest just above your knees. A mid-calf skirt cuts the length of your legs and draws eyes to the thickest part of your lower legs.

Again, proper fit is key here. Something too tight will visually enhance and draw attention to bulges that we’d rather not publicize. Also look for skirts that fit below the waistline if you have a thick waist.

Bras

A well fitted bra is a must for every woman. Not only to give support and comfort, but a too tight bra can pop out those back rolls like nobody’s business!

If your cup size is not too large, consider trying a sports bra for a comfier fit that has adequate support. No wires here ladies!

Colors

Choose darker colors for areas you don’t want the eyes to focus on and brighter colors for places you want to accentuate. Darker colors such as black and navy are very slimming and should be in every woman’s closet.

Dressing from head to toe in one color is also very slimming as it makes a person look taller. Matching your pantyhose to the color of your shoes and skirts helps achieve this look.

Patterns

Stay away from large patterns and look for vertical stripes – thin is best. Thin stripes help give the illusion of length. Adding length helps give the illusion of a longer body, which helps you look thinner. Small, delicate prints can also be very flattering.

Fit

If your clothing is too tight, it accentuates and magnifies all flaws. If our clothing is too loose and baggy, we think we’re hiding our size but the opposite actually happens: we magnify our size.

So many tips to keep in mind when shopping for new clothes! But the key points to remember are proper fit and visually lengthening fashions. We have so many options now in plus size fashions that we can find exactly what works best for our body types.

Sex Appeal and Style in Women’s Leather Pants

Posted By: ivatanaindo

One trend that seems to never go out of type is women’s leather pants. Get all of those misconceptions out of your mind and embrace the deliciousness that is quality grain leather. Yes, more individuals that bikers and cowboys wear leather pants and no, you will not squeak while walking down the street in leather pants. Yes, leather pants can be worn in the summer and also during the daytime. No, leather pants are not difficult to clean, nor are they outrageously expensive that only a choice few can afford them. If these are your reasons for not wearing a hot pair of women’s leather pants, you have run out of excuses, so get ready to shimmy and slither into a fantastic pair!

Leather pants are tremendously trendy, especially with today’s hot fad of the skinny pants. Virtually anyone can look fantastic while wearing skinny pants, and they work great with those super stunning stilettos or those big bulky boots. Keep in mind that any type of pants you choose should properly fit your figure. If you can’t wear skinny pants, then don’t buy skinny pants. Likewise, if you can’t wear low slung hip huggers, then don’t buy low slung hip huggers. You will look much better in a style that fits your body type than one that is popular, but looks awkward on your body.

If you are wondering what to wear with your women’s leather pants, the options are limitless. Unless you enjoy looking like a vampire hunter, drag queen, or dominatrix (and let’s face it, who doesn’t?), avoid wearing head to toe leather. Pair your steaming hot leather pants with a loose fitting top. One great thing about leather pants is that you can still be sexy and show off your curves without showing skin. For this reason, you can also choose a skin baring, super sexy top while still being appropriately covered. Everyone knows that bare skin overload (for example, a super mini skirt paired with a barely-there top) is horrifically outdated and even more inappropriate, so any outfit that include women’s leather pants is perfect for those who want to cover up without hiding their best assets.

Typically, women’s leather pants do not make their way into the work wear wardrobe, but today’s leather suits have completely shattered the mold. Usually, the only person that wears a leather suit is a bounty hunter or country music star, and neither look is particular attractive. However, by pairing your leather pants with a slim fitting leather blazer, you can create a spectacular look that is perfectly appropriate for wearing in a professional workplace setting. Be sure to offset your leather pants and blazer with a cotton or silk blouse. For an especially smart look, pair a crisp shirt with the leather outfit.

Leather is undoubtedly the fabric of amore, as few men can resist a woman in leather. Even though the “less is more” theory is a popular one with most men, there is something to be said about leather pants. Since leather hugs your curves and shows off your body, there is little left to the imagination, but the material is so buttery soft and inviting that they rarely stay on for very long once things get heated. However, if you would prefer to show a bit more leg, then hot pants are your best bet. Hot pants, yes another blast from the past, are back and sexier than ever, especially ones made of leather. These itsy bitsy pants keep the allure, feel, and look of leather, but still showcase your killer gams. What guy could possibly resist?
