Fashionable Tips

5 Fashionable Tips That Will Change You Completely

Fashion is ever-changing a wise person once said, but certain things never go out of style and tips. The most fashionable celebrities are the ones who have always maintained their own individual style, impressing others with their pose and utter elegance. If you are looking to make a complete change and strike a great impression on your friends and family members, you have arrived at the right resource. In the following paragraphs, we will present interesting fashionable tips, helping you look more beautiful and elegant than ever. Enjoy your read and do not hesitate to give our suggestions a try.

1.  Go back to the basics

When trying to keep up with the latest fashion tendencies, it can be quite simple to forget about basic things. In order to be fashionable, you do not necessarily have to follow the latest fashion trends but rather have a few select items, on which to base your ultimate choices. For example, the basics might entail the classic white T-shirt and the tight-fitting pair of black jeans. An amazing diversity of accessories can be paired to these basic elements, making everyone be green with envy. Add to that a pair of classic pumps and you will soon be deemed by everyone as the queen of fashion. And, do not forget, basic elements never go out of style.

2.  Layers rule

When it comes to fashion advice, this is the one you want to remember. If you want to look great, all the time, you need to begin dressing in layers. Take a good look at your closet and see which items can be paired with one another. Never consider something to be suitable only for one occasion and do not hesitate to mix and match, until you find combinations you are satisfied with. For example, the little black dress can be worn at an elegant event but, at the same time, it can be turned into a fabulous daytime outfit, with the simple addition of a pretty sheer shirt. Experiment with layers and you will definitely enjoy the final result. And, remember, you can always find new combinations.

3.  Mixed prints

Being fashionable often means you have to find the courage to take risks. Well, mixing prints might seem like the ideal thing for you to try out. What would you say about wearing a dress that has polka dots, matching it with a striped blouse? This bold combination will turn you into a genuine fashion idol, demonstrating that you have what it takes to dominate the world of fashion and good taste. Mixed prints are not for the rule follower but rather for the person who wants to stay above the rest of the crowd. Find your courage and experiment with different prints, discovering unique patterns and color schemes. A bold, bright combo will ensure that you are always remembered by your peers.

4.  Live to accessorize

There is no greater pleasure in life other than the one of choosing the right accessories for the right outfit. Classic items can be given a complete new appearance, by selecting a few, yet elegant accessories. For example, a leather belt can transform an otherwise simple skirt into something beautiful. The same goes for a simple clutch or a pair of elegant pumps. Always take your time to select the best accessories for your outfit style and you will definitely be satisfied with your final look. However, remember that less is more and do not wear more accessories than it is necessary. After all, you want to impress not scare everyone away.

5.  Suitable makeups

Makeup is often related to the world of fashion and for all the right reasons. Often times, you can change your appearance completely, just by choosing the right makeup for the preferred outfit. Unfortunately, there are many makeup mistakes that you can make, such as wearing too much foundation, too many coats of mascara or an unsuitable lipstick color. If you want to be perceived as an elegant and fashionable woman, you have to take these things into account and learn from your mistakes. In the situation that you are not certain about your makeup techniques, consult a specialist and ask for his or her expert advice.

These are only a couple of tips, which can be of great help when it comes to being fashionable. It is important to remember that the world of fashion is defined by many fashion and beauty trends but you do not have to abide by all of them. It is sufficient to follow a few simple rules and the result will be more than satisfactory. Stick with classic items and add the right accessories, in order to bring them into the limelight. Also, do not hesitate to learn from popular celebrities, as these are always within fashion tendencies.

design your own fashion brand

How to Create Your Own Fashion Brand ?

Every dedicated fashion designer has dreamt of building an empire akin to those created by Prada, Gucci, and, Dior. While you may have dream to be a fashion mainstay, it’s time to consider the reality. What do you really need to start building your brand ?

Many think creating a fashion label is just about providing unique, trending clothes, but they forget that a fashion brand is a business like any other.

Follow the advice below to develop a powerful brand that can one day be as influential and enduring as Chanel.

Find the One

Before you can start your business, you need to find something that everyone needs and reimagine it in your own way. You’ll need a distinct identity, so that anytime someone sees your item, they instantly connect it to your brand. Consider Christian Louboutin’s iconic red-bottomed shoes or Louis Vuitton’s unmistakeable patterned purses—creating an image that has a strong presence and vitality is an essential part of starting your own fashion brand.

Part of creating your brand identity also involves having a unique take on a traditional mindset. Will you choose to market your brand as environmentally responsible? Do you plan to focus on USA-made clothing? Are high quality fabrics and manufacturing your focus point? These ideals are deeply enmeshed with how consumers view your brand.

What It Means to Build a Business ?

Once you have a distinct identity and an idea of your brand concept, it’s time to consider funding and manufacturing. While creating a website and cheaply manufacturing some tees seems like an easy plan, you’ll be surprised by how much involvement a successful business requires.

Depending on the stipulations of your manufacturer and other start-up costs, you’ll need to decide whether you even want to start an online store. Perhaps you’ll decide that finding reliable retailers is more profitable, or that creating single pieces for private clientele is more in line with your artistic vision.

Consider the benefits and disadvantages of each path and plan your business around it. If you choose to create an online-only business, for example, shipping costs will be an intrinsic part of your business plan; while if you plan to work only with select clientele, recruitment and retainment will be your focus. Online-only fashion apparel shops like District Clothing have catered to their success by reaching out to an exclusive target market with a uniquely distinguished brand.

Research and write out a thorough business plan to help you calculate costs, estimate profits, and create an outline for operations.

Use Social Media

While crafting and producing your dream designs is still as challenging as ever, creating brand identity and recognition is much easier today through social media. You have a free platform from which to disseminate your label’s character to an almost unlimited amount of people.

Use Facebook, Twitter, Youtube, Instagram, and even SnapChat to gain followers and raise awareness about your company, new lines you’re releasing, and upcoming events and promotions. Consider your target market and create campaigns that speak to their wants, needs, and tastes.

Using this invaluable resource, you can make people care about your brand by introducing them to your personal journey. Connect with your consumers on an intimate level through social media and inform

Follow Through

If you have already started your fashion label, you may have noticed after a period of time the struggle that entails creating a successful, well-known brand. However, it’s crucial not to give in to the pressure. Even the biggest fashion houses in the world struggled to get to where they are today.

Coco Chanel worked as a waitress at a bar, Michael Kors dropped out of school, and Louis Vuitton started out as a box and package maker. Though these successful fashion designers faced difficulties in their early careers, they were driven by the passion to give their customers a unique and lively brand.

Follow your dreams no matter how arduous it can get at times. Implementing these ideas before starting your brand will create a stronger foundation from which your name, your brand, and your company can grow.

printed top and leggings

How To Boldly And Fearlessly Wear Prints

Summer is back, so it’s time to pack away your subdued fall and winter basics and have fun. This time of year calls for daringly expressive outfits—and there’s no better way to infuse creativity into your look than prints! Season after season, designers envision a kaleidoscope of prints and colors strewn together perfectly. However, creating mismatched outfits can have women looking like they dressed themselves by random. Read on for the best tips and tricks for fearlessly wearing prints this season!

Let Your Print Tell A Color Story

If you have a single printed piece, whether it’s a dress, jacket, or even leggings, you can easily let the print take the lead. Style the printed piece with complementary colors. As with the image above, this stylista incorporated floral leggings featuring a watercolor inspired palette with a sleeveless royal blue tunic that greatly complements the violet and magenta hues. To figure out which shades look great on you, learn about how color theory works in your wardrobe.

 1. Mix and Match

Mixing and matching prints is a delicate balance between a cohesive look and one that goes overboard. With that in mind, mixing prints can create vivid, runway-ready looks with a few pointers.

If you have a printed jacket, then style it with trousers or bottoms that complements the print with a similar color palette. For example, a striped jacket can be paired with striped pants or a skirt with thinner stripes. This creates a harmonious balance between two prints, while contributing to a visually stunning outfit.

Alternately, if you’re mixing two completely different prints with differing color palettes, treat one item as the focal piece, while using the more subtle print as a “neutral.” J.Crew’s creative director, Jenna Lyons, is no stranger to mixing and matching prints.

Frequently, Jenna bravely wears bright green, floral silk trousers, and a muted pinstripe shirt.

2. Neutralize Them

For a casual day-to-day look with lashings of style, try pairing a bold, expressive statement piece with denim or a neutral color.

Take a vividly printed top and styled it with slick, slim-fitting jeans. The wash of your jeans can offer an aesthetically pleasing balance. Since some jeans are neither faded or overly dyed, they can act as a nice neutral that plays off of multiple mid-tones in the top.

3. Accessorize Away!

One of the easiest ways to style prints is with a truly complementary accessory that pulls together the whole look.

For the summer, printed maxi dresses are everywhere! Since maxi dresses create a long, slimming silhouette, prints make for an exciting twist on a versatile outfit that can go from day to night. For daytime activities, try styling a printed maxi dress with a wide belt to create a cinched waist that will immediately make your legs look longer.
