6 Women Fashion Tips for Amazing Presence

Color blocking takes using colors for fashion to another level. You want to use colors to bring out the most fabulous you? Grab your color wheel! The following are six (6) very simple tips to help you get started!

#1: Pick two (2) colors.

Choose at most three colors and stick to that. A simple two-color look is more effective and sassier than combining multitudes of colors which can possibly result to a colorful, messy chaos. For a harmonious get-up, group colors of the same shade together. Separate the bright from the dulls. Use neutral shades for everything else, like your jewelry, shoes, bag and other accessories.

A wider contrast between the two colors brings about a more playful, refreshing get-up. A lesser contrast renders a more sophisticated aura.

#2: Use one that complement your skin tone, eyes and hair.

Pick shades that are opposite to the color of your skin, hair and eyes. Do not use hues that match your body tones because that would result to a dull, boring look. Colors that are complementary to your skin and hair make your clothes stand out and give you a brighter shine.

#3: It should highlight a body part.

Color blocking can be used to highlight your figure. Wear a brighter or lighter shade on the body part you want to bring out–your upper torso, for example. Wear a dull or darker shade on the part that you do not want to highlight.

#4: A vertical setting give you a slender look.

It is not only for those with tall height. For those with a petite stature, color blocking vertically works like a charm. This alternative to the more common horizontal blocking works like an optical illusion and effectively gives you a taller, slimmer look.

Wear two combination vertically. For example, black under a vividly colored overtop creates a lean line, making you look taller and more slender.

#5: Black and white is a classic.

Blocking still works for those who are scared of colors! If you think your choice does not bring the needed fashion desire, it is always safe to go with black and white. This classic combination never fails.

#6: Always be confident.

The best makeup anyone can wear is their confidence. Hear this out: if you do not think this suits your style and personality, it is more fashion-sensible to pass and look for an alternative. A classy, color blocked get-up has no use when you are shy, right? If you think otherwise, go out there and flaunt your looks. Be proud!

Women Fashion Guide: Hoodies Vs Sweaters

Fashion has evolved much these past few decades, especially for women. Women or ladies once have only worn dresses, skirts and other feminine clothes. In today’s society, however, women are free to choose the clothing type that they want. Exclusive male clothing apparel that has now transmigrated to the other gender is hoodies. Hoodies have become more popular than other men’s clothing apparel as these are not only considered as utilitarian pieces, but also fashionable items that can be worn in everyday activities.

Hoodies vs. Sweaters

For those ladies out there who are considering whether to purchase a hoodie or a sweater, here is some useful information that might help you decide which clothing apparel would work best for you.

Comfort. As summer ends and fall starts, one might start feeling cold but not enough to wear a jacket. A hoodie and a sweater provide warmth to the wearer without feeling too hot. In this area, both types of apparel work perfect for just about anyone.

Functionality. Hoodies have hoods and pockets whereas sweaters don’t. Hoods are perfect as there will be occasional rains during fall and one might not want to get wet. Plus those ladies who want to protect their face from the sun can put the hood up to prevent the rays from burning their skin. Frontal pockets will also serve as a place to put one’s phone or hands to warm up. Sweaters, however, would work perfectly for indoor activities. Clearly, hoodies stand out against sweaters.

Fashionable. In terms of trendiness, hoodies tend to have logos on them, zippers and laces which might not be as fashionable as one might like them to be. They are usually oversized which although makes for great casual wear, might not be best if one wants to present a more trendy and preppy look. Sweaters, on the other hand, are more fancy and preppy as they fit perfectly on one’s body and most designs are simple yet classy.

Versatility. Unlike dresses that are exclusive to females only, hoodies and sweaters can be worn by just about any age group, gender or race. These clothing apparel never go out of style so ladies can wear them the next year without having to worry about what people might have to say. Some hoodies or sweaters can also be customized so one gets unique clothing for oneself.

Depending on the event that one is attending, hoodies are perfect for outdoor activities, lounging at home, going to school or any daily activities. Sweaters are perfect for attending casual dinner, office work and other activities that might require the person to present a smart casual look.

Top 10 Womens Fashion Tips For Summer

Summer is a great time of year. The weather is warm, the days are longer and many of us get to spend a week or two relaxing on holiday. There are often weddings, parties, balls and barbeques to attend in the summer giving us a great opportunity to get dressed up. Summer is also a great time to have a little fun with fashion and try out something new. When the sun is shining bright colours, prints and pastels all look amazing. You also don’t need to worry about what coat or cardigan to wear as it is warm enough to go without. Here are our top ten fashion tips for the summer.

1. Looking stylish in the summer is partly about keeping cool. A red shiny face is not a good look and you can ensure that you always keep yourself cool and comfortable by wearing loose fitting clothes in light colours and natural fabrics on hot days.

2. Womens t-shirts are a great casual option and go with almost anything. Find yourself a great style of t-shirt that flatters your body shape and then invest in a few in different colours to go with a variety of different outfits. A slightly thicker fabric will usually be more flattering as it tends to skim over lumps and bumps rather than clinging.

3. Tunic tops are ideal for covering up on the beach on holiday or wearing with a pair of neutral trousers for a relaxed summer outfit. Look out for tunic tops in bright colours and patterns for a fun and eye catching outfit.

4. When the sun is at its hottest keep sun burn at bay with a wide brimmed hat. Not only will it help you to maintain your youthful complexion but will also look incredibly elegant.

5. Accessorise your summer outfits with big and bold accessories. Chunky wooden beads, oversized clutches in juicy citrus shades and armfuls of bangles all look stunning with summer clothes, so pile them on.

6. Make use of camisoles, they are one of the most versatile pieces of summer clothing. You can wear them under a suit for work, with jeans for the weekend or even with smarter trousers and heels for a night out.

7. For slightly cooler summer weather, wear a bolero or shrug with a dress. It will keep your arms warm without ruining the line of the dress.

8. For an understated look for the summer, try layering different neutral shades. This look will make you feel both cool and calm.

9. Don’t be scared of showing your legs. If you can’t bear to wear shorts, try a knee length summer skirt or dress. If you are worried that your legs don’t look long enough wear heels. If you are worried that they look too white, try some fake tan or tan coloured tights.

10. A pair of white trousers is a great wardrobe basic or the summer. They look great with womens t shirts, camisoles and tunic tops.

Womens Fashion – The Secrets to a Better Wardrobe and the Right Dress For New Years

The “anything goes” don’t apply to the one year Party Night that you should and would look like a princess. No glass shoes but everything crystal is the hottest this year.

So here we go again. New Year and all the other “must attend to” Christmas Parties.

It’s with a mixed feeling when this season surprise me behind the office desk. Suddenly there is gingerbread in the kitchen, oranges and hot glogg in the coffee brewer. It’s a wonderful time when imagining snow that slowly falls outside the windows in the darkness, the candle lights that gently burns with it’s warm yellow light. Christmas is best remembered when I was a young girl, wearing my nicest dress, shiny black shoes and wrote letters to Santa wishing for everything pink and made of plastic so it’s fun to play with.

Such a girly girl I was, well yes I really was and I enjoyed every moment of it. But comparing getting the gifts from everyone, smiling and opening them to stressful and crowded shopping between short lunch breaks makes Christmas a whole new deal. Keep on asking myself why such three wise men had to rush out and buy gifts to baby Jesus? Well, the thought is great and I have to admit that it feels wonderful to give but panicking over grandmas gift and all new babies presents without even thinking about what I’m going to wear.

Well, Christmas tends to be pretty casual when it comes to snuggle up in the coach with a hot chocolate (at least in my family). You could wear a cute knitted cardigan, a pair of cozy jeans and tidy up with something wine red, for that extra pinch in the cheek it’s wise to use grandmas pearls again.

So the Christmas Eve is set but what always catches me by surprise are the Christmas parties in between, friends having a “small dinner” or these invitations to clubs, shops and of course work that forces you to work on your imagination. Still, the worst is not that, peanuts and a mild warm-up. The big crises always hits me when New Years comes up. Either there is that eternal question “where are we going to go, do and with who?” The greed and search of the perfect way to celebrate it forces me to throw “plain” friends away and force my boyfriend to start being romantic. Hell of a lot romantic otherwise I was using friends “overly romantic boyfriends” as brutal examples.

“He had put rose-peddles all over the place” or “the champagne was on ice and the lobster was in the Owen”. Well, a quick shopping for accessories and my black old dress works like a charm. So here it goes girls, when time is running out keep the fitted black one handy and make it fun shopping for some new details to add instead. This year I’m in a real 20’s mood and the cocktail dress will be transformed (like the Cinderella dress, no birds attending though). Have already found a pair of high heels, clumsy looking and cute with round toes and a chunky heel in shiny black. Then adding some soft curls, a red lipstick and some crystal earrings. The broach is the only one that is on the dress making it feel new and fresh again.

So for the wallet that is thin and for the ones that have so much to attend that a great base is of essentiality, I recommend the black one.

Well, back to the gift shopping but with a feeling that this years New Year will be a good one, turning old leafs to new ones and hoping for a fresh start with a fresh style for all of us.

Current Malaysian Malay Moslem Women Fashion Trends VS Islam!

I came across a very interesting posting submitted by HarakahDaily Dot Net’s online reader identified simply by his or her pen name, Bekas Budak UKM. Well, Bekas Budak UKM raised some sensitive current issues regarding Malaysian Malay women and I hope that anyone reading this today would feed on whatever that I’m about to share here with an open mind.
First of all, the letter submitted by Bekas Budak UKM to HarakahDaily Dot Net expressed the writer’s concern on the current fashion trends of Malaysian Malay women. Bekas Budak UKM has even listed down his concerns as shown down below:
Some Malaysian Malay women wore short hijabs that did not really cover their ‘aurat’ fully. As matter of fact, their necks are exposed quite clearly.

Some Malaysian Malay women wore hijabs along with their short tee shirts and some are even sleeveless exposing their arms and shoulders. I think what Bekas Budak UKM meant was baby tees, camisoles, raglans and tank tops.

Some Malaysian Malay women wore hijabs along with their incredibly tight fitting jeans revealing the shape of their booties (pardon me for saying this) to everyone.

Bekas Budak UKM did mention a few more concerns but I’m only interested in the first three as mentioned above. For non-Malaysians and non-Moslems who are reading this today, you first must understand that majority (+90%) of Malaysian Malay women are born Moslems. Moslem women are required to cover every part of their body except their face and hands (from the tip of their fingers to the wrist joints) when they have reached puberty. Moslem women are also prohibited from dressing in garments that would reveal their bodily shapes and curvatures. Wearing transparent or thin clothing is also strictly prohibited in Islam.

In a sense, the letter submitted by Bekas Budak UKM is merely an eye opener. I’m a Moslem too and I do not have to be Holy Man to say that the trends of Malaysian Malay women today are not according to the ways of Islam. This is a worrying trend and I do share my concerns on the matter with many other concerned Moslems in Malaysia. Please do not ask me why Malaysian Malay women who are born Moslems behaves and dresses in such manner since I really do not have the answer. By right, every born Moslems here in Malaysia were exposed to some kind of basic Islamic education when they were young. Many were sent to religious teaching schools and were taught all about the Islamic way of life there.

I do wonder just how in the world did Malaysian Malay Moslem women got into this kind of mess in the first place. Were they influenced by the mass media such as television shows, movies and so forth somehow?

Skull Pendants and Rings

There are various ways of accessorizing ourselves and based on our preferences, both men and women find some conventional means of achieving their desired look. Among the multiple accessories wears we have; necklaces, pendants, bracelets, rings, earrings and many others. These ornamental wears can have branded or inscribed with images that add versatility to the accessory. Pendants and rings can have images such as skulls, which is a popular fixture, engraved on them to give a fashion statement or add an appealing touch to the outfit.

The use of skulls on fashion wear has been embraced since the medieval times as a symbol of bravery, life, and death. The trend has spread to the recent times where social icons and celebrities are rocking in all manner of designer outfits bearing the skull symbol. The symbol is such an eye catcher wherever it is placed on, be it T-shirt imprints or on rings, making it one of the uniquely great motifs.

Types of Skull Pendants

There are different types of these skull pendants, and one difference is based on their make, such as the metal they are made of, we have, silver, diamond, gold and simple metallic pendants. The most widely available are the silver pendants, preferred for their durability and shininess making them glimpse catching pieces.

The other difference is based on the gender preference where women prefer slightly smaller pieces while men go for bigger and boldly showing pieces. This, however, can be alternated based on personal demands.

Skulls have been matched together with crossbones; therefore, a pendant can have a clear skull engraving or have both the skull and the crossbones.

The price difference also is a factor to consider; it is primarily dictated by the material made of the piece and the design touch given to it. The more expensive, the more sophisticated it is.

Conclusion

To make a grand fashion statement, go for bolder outfits that bear more significant meaning and are uniquely designed for that particular purpose. Skulls and crossbones symbol offers this and is widely recognized. Thus, it is advisable to wear such accessories that radiate with your intended gestures rightly where they can do so in a perfect way. For example wearing a skull ring on the dominant hand or wearing a pendant with a dress that allows it to be visible.

To enjoy best of this ornamental jewelry, purchase them from recognized dealers and go for quality rather than appealing prices.

How to Tell If Your Diamonds Are Cracked

The precious gemstones that we buy hold a great deal of importance in our lives. If you did some research prior to purchasing your diamond, it’s likely you have read about the items people do to be able to safeguard their diamond jewelry from chips, breaks, cracks etc. sometimes, however, despite all the protection, your diamonds do get cracked, or seem to get cracked.

In that case, you are most likely on the search for ways to find out if your jewel really is cracked and what could you do to repair it. Like the majority of people, you almost certainly freaked out just a little when you accidentally hit your diamond clad hand hard against the wall. For a short while, you would have been searching for marks or cracks just like the most of us.

Let me assure you by first telling that it is relatively hard for a gemstone to be seriously broken at such an insult. What you may see as a blemish may have nothing in similarity to a crack. Here we will attempt to answer some of the common questions people have about broken diamonds. I’ll also demonstrate how a damaged gemstone actually appears like in order to set all your irrational worries at rest.

Daily Deterioration: Breaks Are Unlikely, While Blemishes Are common

After purchasing their first precious stone rings part and putting on it for a couple weeks, there are a lot of people who get paranoid and start to worry if they had broken their diamond. Have you experienced anything similar as well? from what I have learned from my relationships with viewers and other customers, most people only start realizing details they never found before because that they now have the time to scrutinize over their jewelry. The actual fact that almost all of us don’t examine their jewelry in depth when actually deciding to purchase it, perplexes me.

This is why we often end up finding faults that were originally there at the time of purchase. Naturally, you are far more likely to notice the details when you look at something with leisure. The questions only arise after they viewed their jewelry for an extended time period. Plus they start noticing things like girdle reflections or feather inclusions that have been there all along. Don’t think it’s a tiny bit too late to understand those issues now?

Having said that, more often than not, it’s Only a Cleanliness Issue. People often fault a diamonds to be damaged when they see a whitish looking line running right through the stone. Instead of an actual crack. This is because of the unavoidable issue of having a dirty diamond. The truth is, throughout the span of your day, a gemstone diamond ring worn on your palm will inevitably get in touch with a number of things including, soap, water, your fingertips, dirt and actual mud. Initially, this coating of grime may direct resulting superficial blemishes that appear like a covering of clouds or greasy stains. Over time, some of this grime can become so thick that it actually starts to look like solid white lines. If you see this kind of dirt or grime on any stone, you are sure to mistake it for actual cracks or blemishes.

“Repairing the Splits” – Cleaning the Diamond

Also, as the diamond’s surface becomes dirtier, the natural stone will start looking uninteresting and lifeless. Subsequently, a few of the inclusions which were masked by the stone’s brilliance and sparkle would now be observed easily. This may lead to you thinking that new defects have developed, when in fact, they had been there all along. By cleaning your diamonds and removing a great deal of the grim, you will easily regain the natural stone to its original condition. More often than not, a soft tooth brush plus some detergent solution would be sufficient to complete the job. If your engagement ring has sides that happen to be difficult to access with a brush, you might like to consider using an ultrasonic cleaning device or take it back again to the jeweler for professional vapor cleaning.

You Get What You Paid For: How It Might Really Be Broken

In truth, gemstones are somewhat hard to break. To be able to really cause a crack in the natural stone, you have to use the right amount of power at the right position along its cleavage line to see results. The ability to crack represents a direct relationship between the quality of the precious stone and its own “break-ability”. A diamond with low-quality grade and an unhealthy cut class (crowns that are too shallow or with an extremely slender girdle width) could be more susceptible to ruin when put through external forces.

From the view of the crystalline framework, excessively mixed diamond jewelry have weaker material integrity because of the existence of problems and foreign materials. That is why you always want to check the diamonds carefully prior to making any purchase. Generally speaking, the word “you get what you paid for” applies strongly to the precious stone industry. By paying more for quality, you indirectly buy many years of sturdiness and satisfaction for yourself. This is why many diamond experts recommend buying from renowned diamond retailers and professional dealers.

Solitaire Earrings: Symbol of Eternal Love
