When To Buy Into Fashion Trends

One of the golden rules when buying a trendy fashion garment is to exercise caution because trends are short-lived. You should beware of micro trends in particular because they are usually only around for a season, sometimes less. Ideally, you should buy a trendy item early on in the fashion cycle before it hits the mainstream before it is considered, in fashion circles, to be on the way out. The time to buy into a fashion trend is when the celebrities and models are seen wearing it. The problem is that new up-and-coming trends are hard to get hold of before they hit the mainstream. If you do manage to find a garment demonstrating the latest cutting-edge trend in a fashion-forward boutique then you are likely to pay an arm and a leg for it.

The time to wear a fashion trend is when it first hits the mainstream, in other words, when you first start to see it featured in the fashion editorials of magazines and in middle range clothing stores. A middle range clothing store is one that is not a department store or a high-end boutique but one that specialises in fashion garments and accessories. Large department stores selling items other than clothing such as home wares and foodstuffs should not be discounted out of hand, however, as they sometimes carry a fashion-forward line or two which is of good quality but at a reasonable price. Before going out and buying a trendy fashion garment or accessory you should take a look at the trend predictions for the upcoming season in the fashion mags. Fashion magazines will give you a good idea of what to look out for when you are shopping.

Major Summer Fashion Tips

How to dress in the summer of 2014? This is a question which every woman asks. It is certainly challenging to find your way around the many different trends set by designers from around the globe. Consider some basic fashion tips which will help you to find the right style for you and look fabulous every time you go out.

Show Some Skin

Do not be afraid to wear shorts, min skirts and shirt dresses. Summer is all about showing off with your best assets. The short tops which reveal a tiny strip of your tummy are a huge hit at present. They are great for paring with the high waist short skirts which have been a total hit since last year. These outfits are ideal for women of all sizes including plus-size ladies.

Remember to eliminate the sleeves as well. The sleeveless tops always make you look thinner and sexier as well. The tops and dresses with spaghetti straps are always stylish, but you should consider the strapless models for the most attractive look.

Get Inspired by the 90’s

The fashion of the early 1990’s is making a huge comeback in the summer of 2014. The short overalls rule the scene right now. The denim models are totally chick and so are the ones made from thin breathable fabrics. The overalls as well as all shorts and mini skirts go amazingly well with white free-flowing cotton tops and shirts.

The knit tops are back again and go excellently with more casual shorts and jeans and with dressier skirts. The knits are big so you will really get to show even more skin. Again, these tops are free-flowing and super comfy to wear.

The short sundresses with thin straps are back again. Their basic design will give you a very girly and playful look. One of the best things about these dresses is that they can be easily paired with almost any kind of t-shirt.

Play with Colors and Patterns

White is one of the trendiest colors this summer. The white tops and blouses are perhaps the biggest hits of 2014. The white skirts and shorts are also super hot. However, this does not mean that there is not a wide selection of other colors and patterns to pick from. The pastel greens, blues and pinks are super trendy as usually. The big colorful floral patterns are a great choice not only for garden wedding dresses and outdoor evening parties but for suits for the office as well.

Experiment with Shoes

The high-heeled sandals are back and come in a variety of great designs. The ankle strap is a must. It makes your leg look even thinner and longer. The embellishments are not particularly trendy for summer 2014. The softer and lighter colors rule the scene. The white and beige shoes are among the most hip.

You are now ready to dress fashionably in the summer of 2014. Just remember to add the right accessories – a pair of gorgeous sunglasses and a wide-brimmed hat for the day and a lavish clutch for the evening.

Examining the Latest Winter Women’s Fashion

Fashion wear is something that has always been classified according to change of seasons. Last year fashion markets were down recovering from distinct losses as the global economic crisis hit every sector severely, the fashion industry not excluded from the economic bloodbath. However this year things are all set to be starkly different from the last and one can look back to the spring and summer collection and its success to say that great things can be expected from the later half of 2010. As winter approaches fashion markets across the world brace themselves for a rollercoaster ride. With new accessories hitting the market that can send the fashion enthusiast’s mind into delighted frenzy, this winter promises to be one that will set the cash registers ringing for many a brand.

So what are the more popular accessories that have hit the market or will hit the market so far? Flat caps, scarves and bags are just some of the accessories that are set to grab the attention of people all across the globe. Ruffles, lace, brocade and jewelry like chunky necklaces, art deco jewelry are set to take this year’s winter collection by storm as this year there seems to be more emphasis on women’s dressing trends. “Volume” is the buzz word in this year’s trends and when centered on women what is the most likely outcome? Fuller tops teamed with a balance of accessories that are very much based on volume and yet are not exactly that fattening. These accessories are there to draw attention to the wearer’s face and not planned at taking it away and onto itself. The jewelry is meant to be smartly designed and will bear a regal appearance yet look to balance the overall look.

How else is a high volume accessory list achieved? There are several ways of doing something like that. One such way is layering, a trend in fashion that aims at providing the wearer with warmth and yet not let him or her feel a sense of heaviness or uneasiness at wearing an outfit. When it comes to shoes ballerina flats and animal print shoes will look to catch the audience’s eyes at shows with gauntlet gloves or long gloves providing some much needed class to a person’s winter fashion ensemble. Fur trimmed hoods and small peak hats all seem to be in fashion this winter with scarves making up the ensemble of accessories that promise to make this winter a fashionably great one. Yet this is not the end of it all. There is more, much more to think about and look forward to when it comes to the fashion industry’s fall and winter collections. Between the men and women the ladies may have more of a reason to look forward to this winter, yet you would never know. Maybe fashion designers across the world will pull out a rabbit or two from their magic hats for the men as well. Surely there is much to look forward to.
