Your Eyebrows Add More to Your Fashion Look Than You Think

Throughout the history of fashion, eyebrows have been integral in either making or breaking a look. Yes, it’s true that even though they are often overlooked, eyebrows are extremely important when it comes to fashion.

 

In the 20s and 30s, extremely thin eyebrows were all the rage. Greta Garbo had painting on, black lines for her eyebrows. It was a different time. In the 50s and 60s, brows were pretty tame, and in the 80s, they got huge. Of course, in the 1990s, we saw brows go from super big to extremely small. It was a similar fashion to the 1920s and 30s.

 

Today, eyebrows are good in all styles, but most women opt to have larger, thicker brows that are neatly tamed with dips, gels, powders and pens.

 

How to Tame Your Brows

 

If you’d like to get your brows tamed for the times, here are some hints.

 

  1. Try tweezing your brows yourself.

 

Start by tweezing your brows yourself. Make sure that you have a shape in mind, and don’t stray from your desired plan. It can be easy to want to do something drastic, but you may end up taking off half of your brow if you do this.

 

  1. Try getting your brows waxed by professionals.

 

Let professionals do your brows with wax if you don’t feel that you can do it yourself.

 

  1. Go for threading.

 

Threading is an ancient Indian technique for getting rid of unwanted hair. Some say that it is less painful than waxing.

 

Richard Nicoll Has Passed Away

The fashion world is in mourning after the passing of Richard Nicoll, according to Vogue magazine. The famous English fashion designer was only 39 years old when he died of a heart attack on October 21st. Nicoll had made quite an impact with his modernist classic work.

 

Born in London and raised in Australia, Nicoll graduated with an MA in Womenswear from the Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design. He debuted his collections in 2006 on the London Fashion Week and has since been showcasing his work there. Nicoll was regarded as a highly talented designer, and was awarded three prizes from the Association Nationale poor le Developpement des Arts de la Mode (ANDAM). He was also awarded the title of “Best Young Designer” at the Elle Style Awards in 2009. He was a BFC Vogue Fashion Fund finalist twice.

 

Famous celebrities who have worn Nicoll’s designs include Emma Stone, Keira Knightley, Kylie Minogue, Julianne Moore, Kate Bosworth, Sienna Miller, Diane Kruger, Florence Welch, and more. Nicoll has collaborated with Marc Jacobs, Louis Vuitton, Jack Wills and Cerruti. Nicoll’s creativity allowed him work on a number of impressive projects throughout his career.

 

Nicoll’s family made a statement shortly after his death. “Richard was one of the quiet stars of fashion. He was a true gentleman, a wonderful friend and a much loved son… We will miss his handsome face, his sense of humour and his love.”

 

Leaving Behind the Traditional Nude

The term “nude” in the fashion industry is changing. The term originally meant a color similar to pale white skin but that is no longer the case these days. Up until 2015, the Miriam-Webster dictionary had defined the term as a white person’s skin color.

 

Now, according to a recent BBC article, companies are beginning to step up to the realization that there is more than one skin tone to describe nude.

 

Naja, a lingerie company, has a Nude line that comprises seven shades of tone, starting with the shade Nude 01 and going up to Nude 07. The shades were not re-labeled as different colors as this would undermine the point of nude denoting several skin shades according to the ethnicity of a person.

 

Another company, Mahogany Blues, makes clothing for dancers in a variety of nude tones. This enables dancers to find outfits that fit their individual tone rather than having to buy a color lighter than their skin tone and dye it to match.

 

There has been some negativity to the change but overall it has been a good response which is a start. It is estimated, that by 2050, more than half of the US population will be made up of minorities. Changing nude’s distinction from white and everyone else to a color that matches a person’s skin tone will still take some time but it has definitely made forward progress.

Don Ressler And The Purpose Of Fashion

Some people have a basic view of clothing. Clothing was meant to protect people from the elements and keep them warm. However, that does not mean that there is no room for any pleasure and beauty. People, especially women, love great looking clothing. They also like to find clothes that they personally like because it makes them feel special. A lot of women want to be able to find their own style, their own trademark, and their own look. Fortunately, a lot of clothing stores offer a lot of variety to fashion for women. However, not all categories are varied.

One example of a category that is not as varied as other categories in women’s clothing are the athletic clothing. Pretty much every store has the same products in the women’s clothing aisle with no room for differences outside of the pricing. Everywhere people would go, there is the same exact type of clothes. The designs are the same, and the material is the same. The stores seem to have been run with the mentality that athletic clothing is to be merely functional. However, one person stood up in the face of that tradition. His name is Don Ressler.

Don Ressler has understood the desire of people to feel special. He also understands that a lot of women love to work out. Therefore, Don Ressler has taken the time to come up with a way for women to feel more special while they are getting their workout. Also, he wanted to take the time to design clothes that have a different look, but are made of the same material as athletic clothes. As a result, The LA Times wrote that Fabletics was born. Also, with Fabletics, the concept of ‘athleisure‘ clothing has come into the spotlight.

With athleisure came the type of clothing that women could wear for any occasion. While some of the clothes can be worn for physical activities, there are some clothes that are designed more for socializing and meeting with others. Don Ressler’s creation has turned out to be a truly successful deal. This is because he has consulted with others in order to make sure that what he has created was not just different, but aesthetically pleasing.

Put The Pom Pom Atop Your Head and Stay Warm This Fall/Winter

You’re either going to love this fashion trend or probably despise it, but whatever you think, consider the pom pom, ladies.

 

That’s right; the cute fluffy ball was all over the runways, adding a classic whimsy to the fall/winter fashion trends. Knitwear hats adorned with pom poms are really big this season and best of all, affordable.

 

Shops like Forever21 are wild about the look. We found 32 adorable pom pom hats in several styles at the popular fashion site.

 

At Forever21, the most expensive pom pom hat was $17.90 in an elegant, burgundy floppy felt style. The cheapest one was just $5.99 on sale. As you can see, these are super affordable and super adorbs.

 

Some of the other styles we found were colorful pom pom knit hats in beanie style, faux leather cap, French beret, owl trapper and veiled beanie. There are also cable knits, stripes, sequins, ribbed and marled knits and graphic, too.

 

Pom Pom hats seem to invoke a youthful playfulness and are perfect for when the weather gets cold, windy and crazy. The trend started picking up steam last autumn, and now it’s even more popular with bigger pom poms to boot. Other shopping sites that are featuring the hat trend include Asos, Topshop, Urban Outfitters and Zara.

 

Celebrities also dig wearing a cute and sometimes goofy pom pom hat. Stars like Kendall Jenner, Beyonce, Jessica Biel, Ellie Goulding, Cheryl Cole, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley and Rihanna are just a few who like to snuggle under some pom pom knitwear.

 

Even if the style looks kind of silly, the right attitude wears the trend so well. Think of beautiful Ali MacGraw from the famous movie “Love Story” with Ryan O’Neal. The model wore a beanie pom pom hat and looked so stylish. It’s a 70s vibe that has a cozy, sentimental appeal and feel to it. Designers like Anna Sui, Lanvin and Agnes B. are showing it big time for Fall 2016, according to VogueItalia.com.

 

Don’t worry, because you can wear a pom pom hat. We can all wear one, because they define cuteness.

Has Hillary Clinton found her designer?

 

It was nicely obvious that Hillary Clinton has stepped up in her fashion sense when she appeared at the second presidential debate on Sunday, October 9, 2016. Her navy wool pantsuit with a wide-lapel cream shawl collar and a cream wool top was a definite highlight and pointed out how a woman can be comfortable and stylish at the same time.

 

Delving into what Hillary has worn on other major televised public appearances, it is discovered that there has been one major designer, Ralph Lauren. He hasn’t hesitated to dress her in very colorful clothing with a red trouser suit at the first presidential debate and a periwinkle blue suit at her opening campaign rally. She also wore a more sedate ivory suit of his when she accepted her party’s nomination at the Democratic National Convention.

 

Ralph Lauren is Mrs. Clinton’s peer as he is in his mid-70s, knows how to dress a mature woman, and has experienced the same political and social incidents that she has and can design accordingly to flatter her image. He is a man who was born in the Bronx, started out as a tie salesman, and became a major American success story.

 

With all that a President has to attend to and concentrate on, if Hillary attains that highest office, it will be important for her to be dressed appropriately and be able to depend on a designer who will fulfill the role of providing her with fashionable outfits and be of help in crafting a flattering image of the first female United States president.

Six Cheap Purses Perfect for Faking Out the Crowd

Purses are an essential portion of life. Aside from adding some pizzazz to every outfit, the right purse can hold all of the things you never knew you needed to take from your home and put on the go. Unfortunately, though, purses are pretty expensive. Contrary to popular belief, an inexpensive purse will not necessarily burst at the seams the second you place your favorite lipstick in it, so why not appreciate something cheap once in a while? Of course, some handbags take the prize when it comes to looking like a designer purse on a thrift store budget. These accessories are cost effective, absolutely gorgeous, and easily found at popular retailers:

 

Faux Leather Shoulder Bag with Metal Handles

 

Forever 21 will forever be great, especially because of this piece. For only $25, you can own this perfect purse that looks like it belongs in a fancy boutique. Faux or not, it looks expensive and the metal handles add an interesting dynamic that has rarely been seen before.

 

Navy Blue Clutch

 

Face it–you need a clutch. The perfect size for a multitude of occasions, clutches are as sweet as they are practical. This navy blue one from Maykoo is only $17, is durable, and will get you through any event.

 

Envelope Cross-Bag

 

The opening of this bag resembles an envelope, hence the name. Stylish, professional, and somewhat zany, this bag is only $39 from Nordstrom.

 

Classic Tote

 

Perhaps one of the most popular purses of all time, totes are fashionable, pretty massive, and comfortable to carry and search through. This one from Mango is only $40 and is accented with a fancy tassel.

If you have not figured it out by now, wearing animal skin is not exactly in anymore. Because of this, designers craft stunning faux pieces, which is the case for this $35 bag from Nordstrom.

Clothing: You Have Been Doing It Wrong

Clothing and fashion are not always great. New outfits lose their appeal before they are even worn, laundry days are few and far between, pieces become too tight, and fabric stains, unfortunate burdens in the world of fashion. Thankfully, there are countless hacks to make dressing yourself easier by saving you time, money, and a whole lot of patience.

 

Stretch Your Flats in a Flash

 

Though often cheap, new flats are difficult to break in. Chances are, you need these shoes the next day and do not want to deal with the pain that will come with wearing them so soon. The night before you plan on wearing them, put on your thickest socks, slip on the flats, and use a hairdryer to seal the deal.

 

Remove Pen Stains with Hairspray

 

If you have ever used a pen, you have gotten that pen on your clothing at one point or another. Instead of setting the stain in with water, pull out your hairspray.

 

Why Put Your Jeans in the Freezer?

 

Fashion gurus say that you should not wash your jeans after every use because they fade faster and the fabrics loosen. However, the thickness of the material results in some horrid odors being trapped in there from time to time. To put a stop to this nonsense, put your jeans into a ziplock bag and place them in the freezer overnight.

 

Save Your Old Tights

 

Have a deodorant stain? Use a pair of old tights to rub it away.

 

Add Something; Lose Something

 

Anytime you buy something new, consider donating something old. Chances are, you purchased this new piece to replace an old one and to spruce up your wardrobe, right?

 

Roll ‘Em Up

 

Rather than folding clothes, roll them before putting them into your drawers.

 

Vodka for Clothes

 

Again, laundry days are too far apart. If you need to pull something out of the hamper, spray it with vodka. This will destroy any odors and the vodka smell will not linger.

Robert Geller Spring Summer 2017

Robert Geller has recently rolled out his spring summer 2017 menswear collection, which can be viewed here . The collection continues to develop themes familiar to Geller fans, including his signature obsessions with youth culture of days gone by. He places less emphasis on his normally broody color palette, instead choosing to play up the optimism of the 1980’s german music scene and lifestyle. Bold splashes of blue, yellow, and other bright accents harken back to the youthful bliss of young German squatters living the authentic punk lifestyle.

 

Geller continues to explore elegant, draping fabrics, and several eye catching velvet pieces are sure to be popular this season. He features a variety of jumpsuits and other work-wear inspired pieces, reimagined in a more luxurious fabric and cut. There are a variety of animal prints in the collection, done up in a variety of tonal patterns. In this sense, the black-on-black leopard print is a a more toned down piece in the collection.

 

Some of the suiting looks are also heavily retro-inspired, with the wide structured shoulders and bare chests harkening back to the 1980s appropriation of tailoring by European youth. Icons like David Bowie and others are famous for taking this highly masculine cut of suit and contrasting it with more feminine silhouettes and details.

 

Geller is often renowned for his eclectic and historical references, and this collection is no different. Fans of Geller will be pleased, and his outerwear and denim is sure to be a staple in fashionable circles for years to come.
