Trendy Fashion Options - Fashion Trend Setters Go Naked To Prove A Point

Do you as a fashion trend setter know, that the clothes/Jewelry you wear tells a story about you as an individual? It is fact; the way you dress and present yourself in public dominantly speaks volumes about your whole domain. It is the onlooker on the street that holds the ending chapter when weighing up what type of person they think you are from the clothes you wear. More often than not people tend to conjure up a personal opinion based on the whole entity of your image. Regardless of what fashion designer gear is displayed in the fashion boutique window, remember, the dummy is not out to make an impression. To dress to impress is all well and good, however it is who you wish to impress that may cause the denial of a friendship or worse a relationship if dress sense (code) is not suitable.

Latest trendy fashion designs can be dressed up or down for approval in certain situations. Sadly to make an impression you may find you have to make changes e.g. choice of identity (style) just to please folks who label you as being a fashion freak.

A first impression is where you make an impact on others, this is crucial if you seek acceptance into a particular circle of friends. Unfortunately fashion trend setters are judged by the clothes they wear.

Judgemental opinions should be kept under wraps because, it is not what is on the outside that counts, it's the warm inner beauty on the inside that really matters.

However people find this hard to understand or in some cases do not want to understand that fashion trend setters - really are nice people regardless of the stud in the nose or Medusa hairstyle. Some fashion trend setters are seen as outcasts and therefore suffer rejection all because of the clothes that is worn.

A couple of examples below will tell you how the latest fashion or your very own personal wardrobe can let you down.

1 "Vacancy for bank manger"; you dress in creations designed by Vivienne Westwood for your interview, (orange skirt, black fishnet stockings purple shawl and pink bows in your hair), and before your foot is through the door, you are shown it after being told the position has been filled. A judgmental opinion on your appearance has just lost the bank a fashion trend setter with an IQ of a 160.

2 What of the toffee nosed snob in the office spruced up in his pin striped suit, tie and briefcase? Sadly he loses out on love because of status issues, i.e. choosing to ignore the petite flower hippie girl he passes each morning going to the office. His world is only in acceptance of seamed stockings stilettos and hair neatly pinned up. "Wrong move" many an office clerk has ended up with a bird with no brains.

Remember "Never judge the book by the cover" Seeing through an image can result in a perfect relationship/friendship.

For those with status issues who pass judgement and make false assumptions about a person based purely upon the garments they wear, then look - listen and learn from the example below.

1 Take the fashion trend setter dressed in combat pants, boots - baseball cap and pierced tongue

2 Take the female office assistant dressed in a tailor made suit, sling back patent shoes and hair neatly clipped in a bun.

3 Take the hippie dressed in ankle length skirt, leather sandals, flowers in her hair and bells round her neck
Now strip the 3 ladies down to the bare essentials (naked) and what do we have. Yes a triple duplication of the female species. The only difference may be that of size and weight in each woman. There is a lesson to be learned from this and that is, you have no story due absent content. Without clothes we have no character to base a story on.

Fashion trend setters who want to make a good impression on their first date, need to keep their clothes on. You do not undress to impress at least until you know your partners name.

Eco-Friendly Fashion Footwear: Cruelty Free Fashion Shoes Every Woman Must Have This Fall/Winter

Most Vegan women like myself dread of the thought that over 35 million beautiful, intelligent animals are killed just for their fur or leather on their backs (and that’s only the wintertime!), but that doesn’t stop us from being every bit as stylish as our carnivorous counterparts. Except for the fact, that we only want cruelty-free fashion, we have the same desire to collect dozens upon dozens of sandals, sneakers, loafers, flip-flops, knee-high boots, and other footwear for our shoe wardrobe. Ten years ago, this would have been a challenge – one that would seem almost impossible as all vegan shoes practically looked the same.

Nowadays, finding cruelty-free shoes isn’t as hard as it sounds. Now more than ever, companies are beginning to cater to those with a cruelty-free fashion sense and are now offering a wider variety to choose from. As this trend continues to emerge, the only challenge you will have is figuring out how many shoes do you really need. You’ll have to begin asking yourself how many of them do you really love, and how many fit well, complement your fashion style and are versatile enough to serve multiple purposes.

Here are 5 fall/winter fashion shoe styles to help you create a cruelty-free shoe wardrobe so all encompassing, so perfect, that no matter what the occasion is, you'll have just the right eco-friendly shoe

1. One pair of weather-protective footwear.

If you could only buy one boot in your life, an eco-friendly, air-seal range boot like the 14-Eye Boot from Vegetarian Shoes is the one to go with. If you spend a good amount of time outdoors, go with two pairs. Air-seal range boots sporting steel tipped toe and a sole made from rubber tires will provide you with that everlasting quality you need and want.

2. One or two pairs of fashion boots in a medium or dark neutral.

These leather alternative boots are classic enough for work-wear yet sexy enough to add an edge to jeans and an everyday tee. Top-of-the-calf boots with a flat heel are one of the cold weather season’s hottest looks, but are surprisingly in-demand even as the weather grows warmer. For those of you who love the Engineer boots, but want something a little more fitted, the Biker boots are perfect! When you’re feeling a little “rebel”, wear them as biker boots. When your style is more classic looking, just take off the buckle, instantly providing you with simple, comfortable boots that go with everything.

3. One pair of chic looking boots

Almost knee high boots like the Aurora, give you a chic look with straight skirts and classic-cut trousers. They can be worn with bare legs or opaque winter stockings. Plus, they work well with formal and near-formal wear, they add sophistication to jeans, and instantly dress up a denim skirt and cardigan like nothing else can. You can also get the same look with Alta style that is only 11” from the top of the shoe to the bottom of this eco-friendly fashion footwear. The upper is made from the highest quality synthetic micro-fibers while the lining is usually comprised of extremely soft synthetic micro-fibers or fleece.

4. One pair of neutral-colored casual boots for the weekend

A woman can never go wrong with classics such as the Amy boot. Your weekend casual cruelty-free boot should have an extremely soft and flexible sole making it extremely comfortable for all day wear. Make sure your casual eco-friendly boots exteriors are made of “leather" like synthetic micro-fibers giving you that stylish look, while the interior is made of a soft cotton lining and a generous foot bed that will accommodate your feet.

5. One pair of attractive non-leather sneakers.

The fall time is the perfect time to run around the track at your nearby park, and enjoy your surroundings. Whether your eco-friendly non-leather sneakers are made from hemp or synthetic micro-fibers, they are go well with your tracksuit, yet hard-working enough to perform at the gym. The best athletic/sporty shoes are the pairs that have an extremely supportive EVA sole, and a thick padded tongue.

If you follow the above tips you will create the perfect eco-friendly fall/winter woman's fashion footwear wardrobe, that no matter what the occasion is, you will have the perfect non-leather shoe. Remember, no one can have fashion without compassion.

Fashion Business Tips: Find The Way To Present Your Fashion Design Items To The Public

A lot of student who graduated from fashion design school somehow has expectation of having their own fashion design business. Some of them may want to be a designer and just want to have own little studio then taking the job from outside, mean while some other want to join reputable fashion design schools or institutes or even work for the company which can pay highest income. However, the fashion business today has more variety of options. As the fashion business actually can be started from very small scale like family business where one or two family member could set up by using only little budget, to the very large fashion items manufacturers.

There are so many business owners who are now are very successful and are the owner of very famous fashion design companies, and these people started their business only from home business. However, it is fairly to say that at present time, there will be only a little chance for the home business to become success without having huge amount of money. Therefore, many of graduates who finish from good fashion school and they also paid the expensive tuition fee may not want to go back to start his/her own home business for just to get a little of money.

Even though the key of success seem to be the money that designer have to invest on the business, but in fact, the most important thing that is really keys of the success is the idea of the design. No matter the size of the business that you have just started, it is very important for you that you have to find the chance to get your design out to the public and if your design are acceptable by the market, then you will have more work as well as possibility to expand your business.

There are so many for example of the people who just started from very small home business but finally gain reputation from their design and it means that you can gain reputation by doing in the same way too!. The most effective way to present your design items to the word it the internet. If we were in ten years back from now, I would say that there is very least chance for small business to compete with giant companies because there are very limited channel for small business to present products to public.

But now we are in internet age, where everything is possible and the competitive advantage is no longer limited by the size of the business at all. There are places on the internet to present your work and also not just to present and you can sell them on line as well. There are also many of online auction site that you can capture the market and sell your products. It is the place where any one who wants to sell not only fashion item goes and present the design to people all over the world. Now it is you decision if you are one of the people who want to start up your fashion design career and want to gain competitive advantage of your design.

Bring Back Old Fashion as New Fashion With Flat Golf Caps

Golf caps have a number of styles and options that you can wear if you have the desire to cover your head while you are playing. One of those styles is a hat called the flat hat or the ivy hat. The ivy hat dates back to the 19th century when men use to wear them all the time at work and at social gatherings. Known for its flat to the head style and the tiny and stiff brim in the front, they gained, lost and regained popularity in the span of a few centuries. The flat golf caps are especially popular in European countries and are work significantly over there.

Ivy caps have been around longer than a lot of the caps that are popular today and yet the flat cap is still going strong with celebrities, musicians, sports people and others. The flat golf caps are worn by a number of professional c=golfers. Think of the flat beanie type looking hat that you have seen on the street and this is what we are talking about. They are popular, stylist and light to wear. They do not do a lot when it comes to blocking the sun but those that wear them are aware of their limitations.

These flat golf caps have seen many years of popularity followed by a long period of obscurity and now they are being worn again. They are available in many different colors and sizes but the style is pretty steady in the flat, no height size with the almost non-existent front brim. There are those flat caps that have ear flaps too but you don’t see them worn too often, at least not on the golf course (unless you are in Scotland perhaps). The designs that you can get on these caps are pretty diverse though such as pinstripes, plaids and solids.

These are the types of caps you either love or hate and when trying to get them for your golf game you might have to go to a specialty store to find them rather than a sporting goods store or a pro shop. Flat golf caps are very popular in Europe so you might find them in those golf stores but in the United States you will probably have better luck finding them in the online stores or other specialty type stores that you are aware of.
For sure the flat golf caps are not the most popular ones worn on the tour and when you go play a round of golf the majority of people will have on ball caps. There are a lot though that do like these caps and if you are one of them you should learn where to find them by browsing the internet and seeing if you can find them anywhere. You can key word search for them and you will get a listing of all the places that you might find them. The prices will vary so make sure you price around before your purchase anything. Like anything else online, you can always find it cheaper.

Fashion - Today`s Colour In Fashion Will It Suit Your Complexion

Fashion - Why do women and beauty products work well together, the answer to that is quite simple, cosmetics make you look beautiful and women want to be beautiful so there you have it - a match made in heaven - the perfect duo. Today`s fashion and latest shades in lipstick is no guarantee to looking beautiful if you are not feeling good about yourself.

It`s a funny old world - the fashion world. Take those glamour models that grace the catwalk with the latest in fashion design - only to go and mess the entire look of the whole outfit with an expression of depression along with a ridiculous unbalanced walk like that of a woman who has just downed 10 pints of lager - now where is the beauty in that I ask you.

Remember never to imitate the pose of a model on a night out with friends because that friendship may just cease and heaven forbid if you are looking for a date with the opposite sex - then the chances of that happening are zilch. If you want to impress then it is all down to how you dress. You will always be at your best if you feel good. A smile radiates beauty so regardless of what the fashion it is you adorn - be sure to smile and that is half of the battle won in feeling good and looking beautiful

Why is it you wear the same colours when you go out? Why is it you feel that a certain colour is not ideally suited to your complexion even though it is in fashion? Well now is the time to change all that. Todays fashionable colours are just oozing to expel your beauty within. Positive results are guaranteed after you have boosted your confidence into looking beautiful with the latest in fashion styles and colours.

For example if you are not partial to the colour green or orange up next to the skin, well that is fine, but, at the time you decided this colour was not for you, did you ever give it a minutes thought that it was just that particular shade of green that you were not comfortable with. Remember there are 40 shades of green, now do you get my drift. Now as for orange - a colour that does need to be given much thought behind for a person`s skin tone - but if you like orange then dress it up with accessories to compliment the shade itself - this will work wonders.

Just by changing the shade of one particular colour and style of dress can be the start of finding the real beauty within. Your inner beauty may have lain static for far to long all because you took for granted that the first bright lime green luminous blouse you ever tried on was not for you, therefore leaving you resisting future fashion garments in green, But did you ever consider replacing that lime green blouse for pretty cowl neck musky jade shade.. Also a change of hairstyle can alter your whole image along with the colour that you banished from the wardrobe.

It is sad - but there are many women who are confused and believe that a certain colour does them no justice - when at the end of the day it may have been their choice in the shade.

Fashion Jewelry – What’s in and What’s Not

When the term ‘fashion jewelry’ is applied, it is important to remember that the keyword here is ‘fashion’ and that in itself should be able to tell you about the kind of jewelry that we are talking about. Cheap or maybe not and here today and gone tomorrow. Like clothes fashion jewelry too changes with the season. If you are someone who tires easily then this type of jewelry is perfect for you. Here’s a look at what you can expect in trends of fashion jewelry this season:

The Look

The ‘punk’ look is definitely out but the ‘girly’ look is in. Good or bad news? Well that depends entirely on you. Fashion jewelry seems to be making a comeback and how! Chunky chains, bracelets, toe rings, larger than life earrings are all fading away. The look now is more delicate. Having said this, the one thing that seems to be in common for all fashion jewelry, chunky or not is that silver seems to be the unanimous color of choice.

The ‘Bling’ thing

Glitter is definitely in. The more the better! Sparkling fashion jewelry is really hot this season. Zircon earrings, necklaces, bracelets on both hands are definitely a must have. Wearing these goes a long way in completing the girly look. The one good thing about glittering fashion jewelry is that if worn properly it can also pass of as classy jewelry with a formal outfit without looking too loud or outlandish.

The stone story

Stones have always been an integral part of fashion jewelry. Artificial, colored and semi precious stones is what gives fashion jewelry most of their charm. Artificial stones are available in almost any color to match your outfits and moods. Stones like zircons and semi precious stones like jade and turquoise give fashion jewelry an air of timeless elegance and class. Rhinestones are also making a comeback and are excellent to complete that girlie look.

Timeless classics

While fashion jewelry comes and goes with the wind, there are some timeless classics that will never ever go out of style. It would do you good to have these as part of your collection. It is probably as integral a part of your wardrobe as a little and long black dress is. Single stone earrings and pendants are always a good thing to have.

Zircons, red and green stones make for wise buys. Pearls, both black and white are also a must have. Single stand pearl necklaces and earrings will never ever go out of style and what’s more? They can be teamed with almost anything you wear. Pearls might not be sparkly like the other stones, but it can do wonders for a subtle, chic and classy look.

The best part about fashion jewelry is that you never need to throw things away. Just recycle. Put away the jewelry from last season – it’s sure to make a comeback sometime soon. Having said all of this, if what you have read doesn’t appeal to you, then there’s not need to sweat it, it’ll soon be out of fashion. Who knows the fashion trends next season might bend in your favor.

Fashion - Why Are Fashion Freaks Walking Human Oddities

Why is it - that trendy fashion freaks are labelled as such? .Well let me tell you a little secret in the way of a - wake up call. What we need to do at this stage is first decipher what the word freak means. There can be many different renditions of the word - but if we are talking fashion then that is a horse of a different colour as the saying goes.

If you have been called a freak at some stage in your life then the person on the end of the abusive tongue may see you as a sort of human oddity. The word can also denote an image of unusual or deformed vision.
Fashion is a serious business where we all like and love to keep up with the latest trend but however in saying that, you need to sit back and ask yourself - are you going over your budget or are you next in line for an onslaught of abusive remarks all because you are following the fashion traits of today. Listen up guys and gals, how can any one fashion designer dress every individual on the planet of every different shape and size and still get it right?

So there you have it in black and white - not everyone will be ideally suited to the platform shoe, denim dungarees or the up the bum thong that is in fashion - could this be the answer to why a person is called a fashion freak. Another matter you have to address is why you dress up in the latest fashion creations, is it for you or for others.

Regardless of what is said a great many people will still choose to go on wearing the fresh new designs that grace the rails of our fashion boutiques - and rightly so - on this I agree, but only if that particular design is suitable and able to take that inner beauty from within, so that you can inject that warm beauty to glow on the outside while wearing the in thing (fashion garment).

Listen up ladies and gents if you want to make an impression by wearing garments as such then get it right. There are some folk than can pull off wearing any outfit even if it appears that it was purely designed for Coco the clown - but unfortunately if you are one of those people that will evidently portray the look of a clown regardless of what you do to alter it - in the way of adding accessories, then do not fret. Remember beauty is in the eye of the beholder so let the beholder be you when making decisions on what you feel will look right as well as comfortable..

Decisions made to put the latest designs into the high street boutiques - were those made by that of clowns them self. (Fashion designers)

Footwears For Fun Fashion

Fashion is not just about a temporary style statement. They create impressions and some impressions last forever. This winter fashion, keep hold of a necessary and stylish pair of women fashion shoes and maintain them. Know the purpose of the shoes. When you are selecting something for a party, a good pair of high heels either in pencil or platform heel goes with pants, skirts and even jeans. Try out the feet flaunting ones with a sexy strip and open toe front. Remember that black goes with everything but don’t be too boring or predictable. With an open front, get those nails nice and shiny and walk in with an attitude.

For a more casual hangout, search for comfortable flats. Here, avoid high heels and this goes as red lights to those with a job that requires you to stand all day. Have summer colors glow in trendy floaters. If your personality is more boyish, then floaters and sneakers are the ones to keep in mind. Coming geographically to South Asia, with a girlie look in simple salwar kameez, there is always the Kohlapuri Chappals as well as the Rajasthani Jutis for a neat yet fun look. If there is a lot of running involved, stick to flat compact sandals. On the other hand, with a bit more dare, try out semi heels with beads and stones to give an extra glaze on those feet..

For the cold feet in those interviews

As nervous as you may be, in an interview, they say that the first and last thing those people notice are your shoes. It’s the same notion, when it comes to the condition of shoes for women – they must be well maintained. Black is simple, chic, easy on the eye and they just claim professionalism. Yet, going for navy is safe too. Just make sure to compliment the wear and the bag to carry in and always avoid light colored shoes unless you know that your future is in white, that is the navy or for a nursing position. Also avoid suede along with crazy metallic sparkles. Safe the glitters or sequins for the crazy clubbing you will be doing once you have the job.

In classic leather, nothing says glamor with an edge. Remember, this is not the flat soled cloth type. There is just a basic structure at play, a leather pump in style along with a neat cut and a thin strap ending. They are best worn with skirts. If high is too high for those nerve racking knees, try out flat or ballet style shoe which also comes in leather. With a traditional cut, whether plain or decorated with slight grosgrain bow at the toe, never go overboard. A casual ballet slipper best with jeans or khakis is the other option.

When it comes to shoes and situation, comfort should come first. So jingle in flipflops in a tea party, run wild in sporty wears in the morning jog and keep it sweet and sexy the rest of the day.

Following the New Fashion Fall

There is a common belief that if you don’t have money, you will have a hard time surviving a fashion requirement that you long to have. Wrong. You can really be fashionable with the right judgment and resources. Sometimes, there are alternatives to a part of the whole wardrobe that we do not see.

Indeed, buying the original wardrobe will be costly. But you can always ask the assistance of a tailor to make a duplicate or generic one for you. There are some cases that brands are not essential. Why else do you think most fashion designers hate showing off their stuff in magazines?

Not all fashion trends can be seen on television or daily routines where we may find ourselves. Fashion magazines are there for a purpose. While not all of us are that aggressive when it comes to reading and seeing the latest trends in the fashion industry, it just remains that we normally get ideas from the things we see in them.

This is not to say that we will be dressing in the way that we see it. We can improvise in different ways. While some people tend to follow fashion to the letter, it remains that we just have to consider what we think suits us best.

Casual and leather shoes are normally picked out depending on the occasion or event that most people find themselves in. For some it would not matter at all especially if you are not the dressy type. But for special functions like let us say weddings or receptions, you just have to groom yourself properly and this includes how you want your image to be respected.

Some improvise when it comes to fashion. Today, there are shoes that are considered universal. Universal in the sense that they can pass for casual or formal shoes. Whatever the case may be, it is being comfortable and fit for wherever you may be going that is important.

Fashion and styling is generally more particular for the women rather than the men. While we have a couple of people who are sensitive on the way they look, comparing both sides will reveal that women are more prone towards following and setting fashion trends today.

Men can follow a simple yet elegant life if they so please. The thing here is that signature clothes and apparels are nothing if men do not endorse them. Between the two just take note. You will find that men are more prone to make do with what they can get their hands on.

If you want to find some point of reference when it comes to what new style you want to follow, check out your favorite celebrities. Actresses, most especially, are normally the ones who kick it all off. When you see something different, it is a case of two things, like it or not!

They are the best bet to kick of a fashion statement. With all the publicity hounding them, they are bound to get noticed. We often see most of them being criticized by the media but that is just the point. With all the attention over their stuff, they are bound to be something that people want…attention!

Keep Up With the Fashion Trends and Avoid These Common Fashion Blunders

Celebrities have the tendency to look good even when there is an obvious wardrobe malfunction. Well, super famous people need nothing of our approval and they will dress whatever style they suit. And even if they appear on worst dress awards, they don't seem to care. Surprisingly, they seem to create their own fashion trends that everyone accepts. But for average people, clothes that are so wrong are really… wrong. So before you commit the capital sins of fashion, try to be reminded that fashion trends in the streets are what you should follow.

Don't go back to the 90s. Fashion trends change as soon as you have decided to embrace them. But it doesn't mean it won't come back. We've seen how fashion trends come back from previous decades, but the 90s is certainly not in right now. What's with the 90s that really makes us look so bad today? Just look at your pictures 10 years ago or movies that are at least 10 years old and you'll get what we mean. Ten years from now, you'll be looking at your pictures or videos we made today. How will we see ourselves then? Only time will tell. Meantime, you just don't want to wear platform sneakers that made the Baby Spice of the Spice Girls the 90s fashion icon.

Less is definitely more. This phrase may apply for certain things but if we are talking about too short skirt, dress or pants, there is something wrong with your fashion. Take note that there is only one room in fashion that doesn't change: if you are not comfortable with what you wear, don't wear it. So if you are always too conscious when you sit down without having to worry about exposing areas of your body that you don't want to be seen, then, you have no business in wearing it.

Too trendy is not trendy. Trendy is a term used when you are "in style", but adding "too" gives a whole new meaning. Layers are good only if you know how to do it. Accessories are fine only if you know how to mix and match. But if you go beyond the line, you just end up looking silly so try not to attempt wearing too good just to adapt the latest fashion trends. You may just end up looking too bad.

Exposing your undergarments. You probably know this already, but it seems that some need to be reminded. Keep your bra and panty hidden. This goes to everyone no matter which style they follow.

80s is still not in. You may love Janet Jackson, but the fashion trends during the 80s can never be accepted in our time. Make sure that you avoid baggy pants, too much denim, and matching it with curly hair.

There are ways to dress up, look good. You may or may not even have to follow the current fashion trends. But the bottom line here is if you want to look normal, at least during this time, you wear what others wear. You don't lose your personal taste in the process. You just have to make sure that you know what the things you should avoid.
