How To Make A Statement With Your Appearance

Published

on

There is nothing more important than being comfortable. But sometimes, that comfort must be replaced with something more prominent if the occasion required. By playing dress up, I don’t mean that you have to wait for a black-tie event to wear your favorite dress. There are ways to look standout without actually putting on a formal dress for a formal event. Even when you leave for work or having a girls’ night out, you can still look dress up. Below are the five outfits you can try that will make you instantly feel fabulous.

The Matching Two Piece

If you work in a place that rather has quite a strict formal dress code, or simply going to a lunch business, then this matching two pieces is perfect. It can be your regular suit, your regular skirt-blazer options, or simply two pieces of clothing that have a similar color thrown together.

Dress Up With Sequin

Embrace your inner goddess and dress yourself up with sequins. There are two options you can take. First, you can go all the way with sequins by wearing a full-length dress. Or second, you can dress it down by pairing the skirt or dress with a loose, casual sweater or even white tee. Pair the look with flat shoes or strappy high heels for a more formal occasion.

Red Lip

There is a way to cheat and continue to look polished even when you left your arsenals at home. That is the so-called red lipstick. A slick of a bold, red lippy is the perfect way to dress up without overdoing it. This especially will work out well if you are not sure what kind of event you are going to go and you are afraid of making an outfit mistake.

Thigh High Boots

These type of boots are part sexy and part cool. Pair them with a mini dress or a mini skirt for a sexier look. Yes, sometimes a slight show of skin is much sexier than a whole lot. The down thing about this outfit is you can only wear them when the weather is permissible to wear rather a short bottom. But even if the weather is slightly chilly, I’d say this ensemble is worth it.

One Color Plan

No, I’m not talking about a pair of suit. I’m simply talking about a top and a bottom that are fortunately having the same color. The great thing about same-color outfits are despite the type of the top and the bottom, you will always look intentionally put-together.

10 Casual Spring Outfits That Are Easy To Re-Create

Published

on

I love spring. I love the crisp, perfect temperature, the flower, the greenery. But one thing I don’t like is the fluctuating temperature. Dressing up in the morning is always hard. Around this time, however, dressing can be more stressful. The transitional weather means we wear t-shirt and shorts one day, then back to sweater and jeans the next day. This makes me wonder, if only there is a formula easy enough to follow. You know, so I don’t have to think about what to wear in the morning. So, what are the casual spring staples that we should be working into our wardrobe? Well, for one thing, oversize track shorts are apparently not just for gym anymore. Then, slip skirt is back to the radar. While blazer dress is taking the spotlight as it can be a way to look refined with very minimal effort.

Paper Bag Shorts + Button Down Shirt

These two might sound like a weird combination. But trust me when I say that this look does work actually. The button-down shirt is level up the paper bag shorts so they are wearable to wear outside the gym.

Slip Skirt + Graphic Tee

As I mentioned above, a slip skirt is still very much in the trend circle. Pair it with a graphic tee, and you will look casually cool with minimum effort.

Blazer Dress + Animal Print Top

Have a business breakfast but still want to look cool? The blazer dress is a perfect option for a business-casual occasion. While the animal print top? Well, let’s just be honest. The top is cool.

Silk Skirt + Printed Blouse

This pair can be said as the more formal twist of the slip skirt and graphic tee. The printed blouse says business while the silk skirt screams fun all the way.

Plaid Minidress + Puff-Sleeve Blouse

For those of you who work at creative-based offices, this wardrobe is the perfect combination of creativity and fun. Bonus, you can go straight to a night out after office with this wardrobe.

Blazer + Jeans

This outfit is also another option of being casual-business. The combination of blazer and jeans are perfect for when the weather is rather chill. If you want to have a fun night out after office hours, wear the blazer without the inner.

Windbreaker + Trousers

Chilly weather? Well then prepare your windbreaker. What? A shirt underneath the windbreaker? Nah, it’s not necessary. For now, we will try the cool look of windbreaker being tucked into trousers.

Tie-Dye Tee + Plaid Skirt

Freshest combo of the season, tie-dye tee and plaid skirt somehow reminds me of a barbie. Finish the look with sneakers for a more sporty vibe.

Sheer Dress + Black Jeans

To be honest, I find this combo rather odd. I never once wear a sheer dress over anything. But apparently, paired with black jeans, the dress looks so much edgier.

Plaid Pants + White Tee

This combination is similar to the plaid skirt and tie-dye tee combo. The effect resulted from the outfit is also similar. A white tee is a basic wardrobe, always look good with everything.

5 Stylish And Safe Shoe Options To Wear To The Airport

Published

on

The number one rule when traveling is, of course, being comfortable. But, when you are traveling by plane, there are other rules you have to consort to as well. For examples, TSA will always ask you to remove your footwear and put them in the x-ray for security reasons. No matter if you wear flip flops that are only an inch thick. And then, there is another health reason. The plane, just like any public transportation, is full of bacteria. So, be careful with any wound you might get during flying as the bacteria can cause irritation. Due to this, we have to measure the safety of our shoe options when traveling by plane. But at the same time, of course, we want to look stylish. So, what do we do? How we combine these two? Scroll on the list below to see how.

Sneakers

You truly can’t go wrong with wearing a pair of sneakers to the airport. First, they are very comfortable. Second, they provide good support for your feet. Third, they can protect your whole feet, which means, bye plane bacteria. You might think that sneakers can complicate the whole take-off-the-footwear. In this case, we recommend slip-on sneakers as the alternative to the one with ties.

Pool Slides

Some people might really really want to wear sandals. In this case, wear pool slides with socks. Some years ago, this might sound yucky. But trust me, lately, celebrities have been caught wearing pool slides with socks to the airports. Even though I still believe that pool slides are not necessarily safe for traveling by plane as they don’t provide good support for your feet, but at least the socks keep you safe from the bacteria.

Low Block Heels

There is no greatest misery than walking around the airport with a pair of high heels while pushing around luggage. But sometimes, the need to look stylish beat our pain. For this, low block heels are a great compromise. For people on the shorter sides, the heels still provide an extra height which makes us look stylish. But at the same time, they are still comfortable for a long walk.

Ankle Boots

Before your flight, you might wake up and think, “hmm, I want to wear something comfortable, sturdy, but rather polished”. Well, welcome ankle boots. They have the sturdiness of sneakers, yet as stylish as heels. If you want some extra heights, opt out for boots with some block heels. Or else, just choose flat ankle boots for extra comfort.

Loafers

From all of this list, loafers are probably the option I love the most. They are stylish, comfortable, and easy to slip on and off. The best thing is, loafers can be worn either with jeans, leggings, even dress.

With new trend, comes the preparation for the new season, purchasing the trends and so on. To help you put these important summer trends into perspective, we pair each of the new trend with the old ones. But, just as with any trend, there is no obligation to follow them. If you feel that any of the new trend below is not for you, feel free to ditch them.

Out: Fanny Packs, In: Shoulder Bag

Last summer was basically an invasion of fanny packs. Whether you prefer to sling around the waist, wear it across your body, or over your shoulder, the trend really ran its course. But no worries, the replacement is just as awesome. The 90s bag trend, the shoulder bag. The style is yet as popular as fanny packs, but it definitely will make its way toward the summer trend.

Now, let’s be excited with the return of an old, 90s early 2000s trend, the one shoulder tanks. Whatever the color you will choose, this little tank will give you a go feeling for the summer.

Out: Massive Straw Hats, In: Printed Bucket Hats

Thanks to Jacquemus, summer last year was filled with massive straw hats trend. While looking chic in theory, the trend is more Instagrammable than being practical. For summer this year, we expect to see a more wearable hat trend. Comes in the printed bucket hats. Cool brands like Ganni and R13 currently make noteworthy printed bucket hats. But there is also a more affordable choice such as from Urban Outfitters.

Out: Short Shorts, In: Long Shorts

Short Shorts have become a massive trend for a couple of years ago. Personally, I’m thankful that this trend is over as they can be very uncomfortable to wear. To replace the uncomfortable trend is than goodness, a more comfortable one. Started with the trend of bike shorts, continued with a short suit, now led us to the return of jean shorts. Completed with great length.

Out: Pool Slides, In: Heeled Thong Sandals

Athleisure-esque pool slides are officially a thing in the past. The replacement is a much cooler, more stylish counterpart, the heeled thong sandals. The great thing about this new trend is, we can wear them with jeans, shorts, even a midi dress. Even the heels are short enough to be comfortable to wear.
