Women in Politics have Become Forceful Fashion Models

Fashion and clothing has taken its place of pride in political parlance, going by the recent developments in American politics. The women in politics or those close to the men in politics have become automatic fashion models. The dressing they have chosen to wear to occasions both private and public, the people that design it, and its label have become the points of discussion, creating both protests and tensions.

The white pantsuits that Hillary Clinton adorned during campaign evoked the memory of suffragettes. Besides, the rainbow of matching ensembles that she dressed also inspired her fans into flashy mob dances. Her arch supporter, Mitchell Obama has also played the role of the First Model during her time at the White House, often drawing curious eyes to her designers and what they meant to portray through her dressing. Talk of what cloth her dresses were made of and how it suited her build and persona have been a point of discourse amongst many fashion conscious analysts.

 

Sources of Fashion Protests

 

Fashion analysts have closely followed the accessory and clothing that Melania Trump and her step-daughter Ivanka Trump have adorned. Their clothing inspired the distaste amongst the minorities, immigrants and women who have been the subjects of derogatory statements that Donald Trump issued during the recent campaigns. But the same clothing have been fully embraced by Trump supporters who have seen him as the champion of their voices.

 

The women in power have turned the red carpet as their moment of fashion show. Their dressing is currently given political undertones, serving as both the point of inspiration or derision based on the side of the political divide that the fashion analyst belongs. What cannot be taken away from these women in power is the new significant role that they are playing to promote fashion ideas not just in America but also around the world.

 

 

 

Artist “Grows” Mushroom Leather to Sprout Beautiful Fashion and Accessories

This might sound like the craziest idea ever, but darn it, it is real and authentic and might just become your next ostrich-like leather wallet.

 

The world has always been in love with the softness, beauty and durability of real cow’s leather. However, there is the cruelty factor when you consider the eventual slaughter of these magnificent creatures. So, artist Phil Ross has found a better way which is kinder to animals and the environment.

 

Ross’ company is called Mycoworks, and what they basically do is grow leather-like material from the dense root structure of mushrooms. It’s an unbelievable process that will yield stunning works of fashion for clothing and accessories in the near future. The mushroom skins can be created or manipulated to mimic expensive leathers like ostrich, cow and snake, and no animals were harmed during the procedure.

 

Even more fascinating is the organic incubation technology itself. For instance, while the mushroom skin is growing, one could add zippers or other hardware right into the hide. Because mushroom skin is an organic fiber, it also breathes like conventional leathers and feels great with a similar texture.

 

It’s pretty genius and a cool example of a simple fungus found in the dirt coupled with the advancement of science and technology. The company explains it like this:

 

“MycoWorks is building a better world with nature’s best tools.”

 

Mycoworks designed their first mushroom leather wallet, and it is quite a handsome accessory. No one would ever guess that it weren’t real leather, except for maybe the artist himself Phil Ross.

 

Mycoworks is definitely a brand to keep watching in the fashion future.

 

How Shopping And Fashion Can Improve Self Image

If there is one thing that is underrated, it is the effect that fashion has on the person’s feelings towards him or herself. This goes beyond the conventional ideas of dressing well. The more important aspect of fashion for the person is in buying what that one person wants for his or herself. There are a lot of unconventional items that could actually help people feel better about themselves and their lives. They could also find something unique that people will also enjoy. They will then be encouraged to live a happier life with their fashionable choices.

 

The best way that one could feel better about himself is that he does not worry about what others think about him and what he wears. This opens up all possibilities for him to find some new items that he could enjoy throughout the day. As he experiments with the different styles available, he will also get to feel the fabric of the clothes that he tries on in order to help him determine what he likes. As a result, he will get to feel like he is worth something when he finds an outfit that fits him well and brings out all of his best attributes.

 

He doesn’t have to worry about trends. Trends come and go. Also, he could start a new trend with the type of clothes that he wears. One thing that could help with fashion is the confidence that comes with it. At the same time, fashion can also boost one’s confidence when he makes sure that he is wearing the clothes that he likes and not allow people to dictate the trends that he should follow. This allows a lot of room for creativity. With the right clothes, one is going to find himself able to take on different aspects of life.

 

The Plus Size Industry is Growing Substantially

The average American woman is a size 14, so it makes sense that a lot of clothing manufacturers and fashion companies are finally recognizing this and providing the necessary products to meet these needs. Two decades ago, it might have been practically impossible to go into the mall and find cute, trendy clothing for larger sizes that didn’t cost a fortune. Nowadays, you can go into virtually any store, both online and off, and find an array of gorgeous clothes that range in size from XXS to 5X. Having the same styles as thinner women helps curvier girls feel better about themselves, giving them a chance to be just as fashion forward as the models you see on the runway.

 

In fact, there has been a recent resurgence in fashion bloggers who are plus sized. Women like Darlene Lebron Lopez, Kate London James and Sawsan are all popular fashion bloggers who have thousands of followers staying updated on all the latest looks and trends. You don’t have to be a size zero to look good, and the fashion industry is realizing this and making it possible for larger women to find clothing they actually want to wear.

 

Despite jeans and blouses being made in larger sizes, you can now find knee-high boots made with a wider calf to support plus sized gals. Plus size clothing stores like Torrid and Dia are bringing gorgeous fabrics in lingerie to keep you feeling sexy. Let’s face it, many of us can diet until the cows come home and still be in a larger size, so it’s nice to know that we can still look just as good now than we did when we were smaller. There is no size limit in the world of fashion, opening the doors to a plethora of styles for women wanting to look their best.

It is based in New York and women gladly welcomed this brilliant idea.

The Difference Between Fashion And Style

Fashion, trend and Style are often used interchangeably. However, when one takes the time to look at everything, he or she will realize that there is a difference between fashion, style and trends. Fashion is of course the clothing. Style is the preferences and choices of the person. Trend is what is popular at the moment. One thing that they all have in common is that they all change. However, there is a difference too. For one thing, fashion changes but stays the same. Trends are always changing. Style on the other hand is very slow when it comes to change.

 

While trends change, there are some trends that return after being gone for a while. For instance, a lot of trends that were popular in the seventies are making a return. However, those that want to be stylish do not pay that much attention to trends. They look for clothes that they themselves like. They are also more likely to be impressive because they know how to put together a stylish outfit. They know how to coordinate their outfits so that they will stand out in a way that is positive. Also, there are a lot of things that the right type of clothes could do to one’s mindset.

 

When it comes to following trends, there are a lot of mishaps that could occur. Often times, people that are quick to jump on the latest trends put together outfits that are very sloppy and loud. Colors tend to clash as well. Then they often wear the clothes they buy only once because it is off trend. With style, fashion is used based on what the person likes. He does not pay much attention to what others think. Also, when one tries to find his style, he is willing to experiment until he finds something that he is satisfied with.

 

Why One Should Try Before Buying Clothes

In many cases, one that knows his or her size is going to be alright when it comes to picking out the right clothes. However, there are always going to be certain issues when it comes to clothing. For one thing, different items that are labeled with the XL label will fit differently. Therefore, it is important to take the time to try some clothes on before buying it. This is especially true for people that try to dress right at their size as opposed to a couple of sizes over. At least when trying on sizes, one would know how to find something that fits them well.

 

This principle applies to all kinds of clothes. It is good to find an interesting and fun piece of clothing that fits well. It could be any clothing from an earlier era or an earlier trend. What matters is the person involved in the shopping for clothes. While fashion is always changing and there are certain types of clothes that many people will like, there will always be unique bits of clothing that a relatively few would like because of it being of a unique style.

 

If there is one thing to say about style, it is that all styles are valid. If many people were allowed to be honest about their own style and were allowed the articles of clothing to be able to pursue their own style, then there would be a lot of diversity to how people dress. There are people that like trends that existed back in the 70s, 80s and other eras. Fortunately, stores are making efforts to offer some unique bits of clothing so that fashion can be fun for both men and women. In the end, a lot of fashion is about making people feel good about themselves.

 

Glamorizing The Winter Parka: Wardrobe Staple We All Need

The glam winter parka is a hot trend this year, and we all knew that fashion news was coming down the pike last August. In fact, Elle.com was reporting about couture parkas in over-sized street wear with lots of quilted padding and wonderful chic detailing.

 

If you live anywhere with dipping temperatures, biting winds, sleet snow or icy rain, then you need this winter fashion staple when the weather turns nasty.

 

Some women get bored wearing their winter parka, because it’s usually not too shapely a coat, can be bulky and simple-looking with a hood. You can, however, glam up this classic winter garment with some imagination.

 

On-trend celebrities like Angelina Jolie was recently photographed in Colorado on a vacation with her kids and staying cozy in a parka. The sexy star kept her ensemble all black, beginning with her $500 Burton Wiley Gore-Tex parka. She accessorized with trademark aviator shades, kept the shearling hood on and wore puffy pants and quilted boots. Underneath those layers, was a black lacy tank top peeking through.

 

You don’t have to have huge movie star status to make a winter parka come alive. These coats also look amazing with a dress and booties, a la Alexa Chung style. It works, although most women are used to wearing their parka with pants.

 

A lot of women around NYC enjoy wearing a cute beanie, instead of the hood on their parka. Keeping it casual means, jeans and a pair of Nikes, too.

 

The winter parka looks superb in over-the-knee boots or a pair of pumps. Footwear of many kinds is compatible with the parka.

 

To add another layer of warmth and sophisticated style, slip on a fur vest over your parka, faux fur, of course.

 

Baby, it’s cold outside, but you’re good to go.

 

Feeling Down? A Wardrobe Update Might Help
