Affordable Holiday Style

Shopping and dressing for events are often contributors to holiday stress and debt. It’s not necessary to purchase a complete outfit. Here are some affordable options.

  • Wear a glittery illusion, multi-strand or y-shaped necklace. There are many options; rhinestones, beads, cubic zirconia, swarovski crystals.
  • Pull out those dressy shoes you bought but never wore yet. You can always change into practical flats later if they’re a little high.
  • Brighten a conservative, dark suit with a brightly-colored, dressy top or camisole to stand out. Just make sure it complements your coloring.
  • Not ready for bright colors? Try a lacey top with long bell-shaped sleeves instead.
  • Carry a beautiful, embroidered and/or beaded clutch.
  • Buy a faux (or real if you prefer) fur collar to dress up your coat. Have your local cleaners or tailor add the buttons and loops to make it detachable if you’re not comfortable doing it yourself.
  • Pile on the bangles or charms. This is a nice party look – where the noise would not be an issue.
  • If you’re not comfortable

About Layered Hair Styles

Layered hairstyles are now one of the most popular hairstyles around. This hair style works the best on long, straight hair. This is because very coarse and curly hair doesn’t let itself to fall into layers. After getting a layered hair cut, it is possible to accentuate the hair layer using highlights. This can also be used to flatten your face shape. The layered hair style tends to suit those girls whose hair is straight or slightly wavy and also gives thin hair a thicker and shinier look. Nowadays, a substance called Hydroderm is also available in the market. This is what many people use by allowing the collagen to be delivered to the third layer of the epidermis to make the layered hair style look even better! It is not actually that much advised to use on the hair, but since it is one thing most actresses use to accentuate their layered hair style, it has definitely come here to stay!

The reason “layered hairstyle” has such a name is because only the

Cowboy Boots

At that time, the Wellington had a low cut heel that was calf high. It was quickly adopted by the Texans who gave their own western interpretation to this footwear – hence, the western cowboy boot. Today, the Western cowboy boot is a staple in fashion all the world over.

In 1954, the western boot changed to keep in stride with the growing popularity of the rodeo. A lower heel and rounder toe was necessary to accommodate the wear and tear competitors required to compete. By the 70’s television and theater influenced the western boot “look” and style and fashion trends took hold. Some have high heels and pointed toes, while others stick with tradition and have a lower heel and a rounded toe for the true cowboy.

Custom-made western cowboy boots take about 45 hours to make. These hours of labor are reflected in the price of a pair of western boots, because prices can be steep. Colors range from traditional browns and blacks to red, blue and gray. Decorations include the toe wrinkle and stitch lines across the toe top seem to be popular additions. There are different types of the western boot including

Future Style of Vintage Tee Shirts

The vintage tee shirt has a long lasting place in style because it is much like antique furniture. It has a constant surviving style because it is not trying to be new. The boom in the trend has created a flood of new shirts that appear to be old, but they will not replace the true vintage shirt. A true vintage tee is all about being authentic and old. Newer shirts that look vintage are simply a novelty that will pass as a trend. The shirts that actually survive are ones from an actual place and time that someone might recognize.

The stylish part of a vintage tee for males is what’s behind the tee itself. Wearing something that is actually vintage shows a part of the personality and style beyond current trends. Women see this rebelliousness as confidence and security in one’s self. This is highly attractive to women who might see current trends as a passing fad that people just buy into. Anyone can walk into a store and buy what is on the mannequin. True style is finding something that you like and going with it. That is why a fake vintage tee is

Style Significance of Sandals

Stone age man seeking to protect his feet with the hides of animals in the form of basic leather sandals. These were very simple in design and were made of the same type of hide that these ancient men made their clothes out of. This style of rough animal hide covering continued until about 10,000 years ago when examples of straps or thongs started to emerge. The straps or thongs would be attached to a heavy study sole that was meant to protect the bottom of the foot.

As civilizations started to emerge the adapted that plant and animal life they had access to create new styles of sandals. Ancient Egyptians used papyrus and palm leaves to create their version of this ancient footwear. The Greeks and Romans used sandals in their everyday clothing as well as a part of their military uniforms. In India where the cow is held to be a sacred animal sandals are made of materials such as wood, ivory and metal.

Throughout the ages sandals have been a major feature in footwear but not until the 20th century did they become a fashion statement. Most major designers since the 1920s have

Styles Of Shoe A Woman

1. Go for smart and comfy flats for work. If you are in full time employment it is likely that you will be working 8 hours a day, therefore having a pair of shoes that are comfy and don’t put to much strain on your feet is paramount. Heels may look good but if you are on your feet for any period of time you will regret them very soon. Two or three pairs of these shoes are ideal, and chose dark or medium neutral colours, this will ensure they go with any work outfit and wear end tear will not be as obvious with light or bright coloured shoes.

2. One warm-weather work shoe. Try and go for some open toed flats, or sandles if your company allows it. Getting hot and sweaty feet during the summer months can be very uncomfortable during long days at work

3. One pair of slingbacks in a neutral shade. They look chic 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

Info of Long Hair Styles

The multiple ponytails style consists of three base ponytails, but it is possible to have more ponytails if interested! Once the basic style of three ponytails is mastered, which normally takes ten minutes, you can improvise on it! If you plan on just having three ponytails, newly washed hair is great; but if you plan to add knots or braids, it’s better to work with hair that is not so soft. The hair has to be brushed to remove knots and tangles. Then all the hair from the top of your crown has to be picked up and separated into three even sections. Some hair from the ears below has to be left loose to flow around your neck. Each ponytail then has to be smoothened into separate mini-ponytails, and secured with either a hair bungee or elastic hair band. Once the basic multi-pony look has been achieved, you could use different braided or knotted styles. You could create multiple ponytails where no hair is left to flow down your back. Another choice is to have all the different ponytails coiled up and pinned on top of the crown to get a beautiful up-do of braids. You could

Homecoming Hairstyles

Throughout the past several years, girls tend to look for homecoming hairstyles that are traditional and that offer them a sophisticated look. The most popular of these homecoming hairstyles is the “up-do”. Many stylists may offer their advice regarding your hair type and facial structure. Stylist’s may opt to braid, curl, tie, knot, or pin the hair in place. Variations of the up-do may incorporate hairpieces and hair accessories. Some girl’s may like to wear rhinestones and jewels to add glimmer and shine under the lights. Other girls may find themselves opting for up-dos that have sweeping and flowing locks. If you’re saying to yourself that your hair is too short for an up-do, never fear; hair extensions and hair pieces offer even the shortest of trends this up-do option.

One important factor to consider when contemplating the up-do is your facial structure. If your facial structure is round or square; wear your up-do high on the crown to elongate your face; if your face is thin and more rectangular; opt for homecoming hairstyles that are fuller on the sides and lack crown height. Depending upon your forehead height, you may wish to wear bangs. Girls that

Tuxedo Styles

A complete tuxedo ensemble includes a jacket, trousers, shirt, bow tie, cuff links, studs, and a cummerbund or vest. If you wear a vest, you do not wear a cummerbund. I would suggest purchasing extra ties and cummerbunds in colors and patterns for a more festive look for any occasion.

Your classic tuxedo, of course, is black but you have several collar options from which to choose. You have the notch lapel tuxedo jacket, the peak lapel tuxedo jacket, the shawl lapel tuxedo jacket, and the mandarin color tuxedo jacket. Personally I prefer the classic notch lapel tuxedo jacket but it really is a matter of choice. The shawl lapel gives the body an elongated look so it has a slenderizing affect.

You then have the trousers in pleated and non-pleated with an adjustable or non-adjustable waist band, all with a satin stripe down the legs.

There is a great selection of tuxedo shirts available. You have the classic wing collar tuxedo shirt, regular collar tuxedo shirt, mandarin collar tuxedo shirt, banded mandarin collar tuxedo shirt, piped mandarin collar tuxedo shirt and the list goes on and on.

The accessories are endless. You have

Clip Earrings

Clip earrings are seldom uncomfortable, and even if one is not accustomed to wearing them, they are easy to get used to. These jewelry items are clasped onto the earlobe, then worn like regular pierced earrings. The clips are often strong, so they don’t blow away with the wind or get knocked into the nearest sewer drain while the wearer is casually walking down the street. They are also very convenient; easy to slip on or off in a pinch.

Various materials are used to make this user-friendly and fashionable item. From inexpensive plastic to costly gemstones, they also come in a great variety of designs from which to choose. Clip earrings are an excellent alternative to costume jewelry — that is, stuff you’re going to wear once, and then again only during the next blue moon. Jewelry to wear onstage, and only at specific productions, is an example of this. This might be especially attractive to people who seldom wear earrings, but are drawn by the thought of wearing earrings during special occasions. There is then no need for ear piercings, when such a stylish accessory is already at hand.

Handbags Style

Personally, I require a daily handbag large enough to fit a book (because you never know where you’re going to surprisingly end up stuck with nothing to do). However, I also like to have a handbag that I can wear on my shoulder to a formal event, not a bag that looks like an everyday handbag–but something with a little class and elegance. I have even bought handbags in sizes in between, because they were nice-looking or more professional looking (and still large enough to squeeze a small paperback into).

The most famous designer handbags are always the impressive and most expensive handbags, however they are virtually always the highest quality handbags as well. If you need a high quality handbag, and you have the means, designs handbags are well made, high quality and therefore long lasting. On the other hand, also many imitation designer handbags, these handbags look great and can last as long as the designer handbags of which they are knockoffs. Thus, when you choose an imitation designer handbag, you will save money and loose nothing but that tiny, designer brand-name label.

If you want many types of handbags for different, occasions, as

Layering Fashion

Tanks and Camis Rock in Layers

If you want to layer your tank underneath a layer, choose a thin-gauge tank. Guys and gals can wear a thin tank well under most anything, especially button-downs and polos. Girls, keep an eye on the girls while wearing a super thin tank (monitor your buttons occasionally to avoid unwanted overexposure.) And you may want to choose a heavier-weight over layer. If you are particularly trendy, gals you can layer your tank or cami over a t-shirt (long or short sleeved.)

Start at the Bottom (for gals only please)
Let’s forget about layering our tops for just a moment. You want to be the coolest of cool and you already are queen at layering technique? So let’s start with the bottoms then. Choose some slick little leggings to wear underneath belted shorts or an itty-bitty miniskirt. Sounds perfect for that trip to the amusement park or out for pizza. Don’t forget your vintage t-shirt and comfy ballets!

For Ultimate Appeal Layer a Sweater Vest

There’s something about geeky gals and guys! The geeks have it when it comes to the sweater vest. Summer-weight sweater vests can be a

Gray Hair

The evolutionary imperative selected dark hair without a single gray strand in it because gray hair subliminally signalled “old age.”

However, within an urban environment, gray hair could also translate as “money” and thus could appeal to the nurturing instincts of young females of child-bearing age.

Looking at the matter from Edward Wilson’s “Sociobiology” perspective, gray hair put the young females in a bind by broadcasting two conflicting signals simultaneously — “damaged genes” and “wealthy protector.”

These days, in this age of international terrorism, nuclear proliferation, outsourcing, downsizing, bird-flu and global warming, perhaps the “nurturing” aspect of gray hair is winning the subliminal argument.

Here is Taylor Hicks, the winner of the fifth round of American Idol contest, and his prematurely gray hair.

Did you know that a total of 60 million viewers voted for him? That also means 60 million votes for gray hair, hurray! It’s in for sure.

And then there’s Anderson Cooper of CNN, a very energetic and serious young (38yrs) professional with a “nurturing” signal.

There are a lot of brainy creative women who for quite some time showed up in public with prominent gray hair as

Best Shoes for Any Time and Place

1. Comfy and Sporty: Rubber Shoes

Rubber shoes are the best type of shoes to keep your feet safe, warm and clean anytime and anywhere.

  • Physical Education classes require students to wear rubber shoes because the composition of these shoes is softer and more flexible, which will prevent possible injuries from any physical activity, or unexpected situations.
  • For manual car drivers (especially for women), I recommend using rubber shoes while driving because it lessens, or prevents, pain and cramps in the muscle feet. Flat and doll shoes usually have thinner soles compared to rubber shoes which make it painful for the feet if overused.
  • More challenging physical activities and sports that demand a lot of running, walking, jumping or climbing require the use of rubber shoes. The dirt, damage and hurt which might be caused by travelling on rocky, rough and muddy roads is also prevented using these.

Make sure that you pair up rubber shoes with clothes that won’t make you look too rugged but not too sporty (if you don’t need a sporty look).

2. Skate Shoes

Skate shoes somehow look like the usual rubber shoes, but their bodies and soles may differ.

Traditional Japanese Sandals

The variety of sandal types today attests to man’s mastery over sandal making and the use he has found in the item. In the following sections of this article, we will discuss some of the most popular sandal types in the world.

espadrille – is a type of sandal characterized by the rope sole or rubber sole with a cloth covering for its upper section.

flip-flop – is Japanese in origin and is characterized by being backless. This sandal is held on the foot by means of a thong between the second toe and the big toe.

Get the Classic Jennifer Lopez Style

The style of your clothes should compliment your lifestyle and the market you serve. For example, dress conservatively if you work with clients in conservative businesses such as banking. In the advertising industry, less conservative dress is the norm. Additionally, many hi-tech firms have adopted “business casual” dress codes.

The color of your clothing has the ability to indicate authority, power and personality. Color can work to enhance or detract from your natural coloring.

Select fabrics that provide value and comfort while being attractive. You might also choose fabrics with transitional qualities so that items purchased can be worn many times during the year. Natural fibers such as wool and silk or blends that look like natural fibers are best-they look good and resist snags and soil better than other fabrics.

Buy and wear clothes that fit or invest in alterations. Clothing that doesn’t fit is unattractive, no matter how high the purchase price. And, remember, clothing that is too tight adds pounds.

One-inch to three-inch heels on shoes are the best choice for women in business. All-leather shoes are more comfortable, longer lasting and better looking. Black, navy, brown, taupe and cream pumps

Style With Leather

If you are a professional person you want to look professional. A nice leather briefcase or laptop case can tell who a person really is. If you have a nice leather bag or case it will definitely show what kind of class you have.

You definitely want to match you accessories with color. If you have a nice black leather bag, you want to have a nice leather wallet to match. Leather can be dressy or casual. That’s the nice thing about leather. If you are go to a business meeting and your are very dressed up you can go with a classy leather clutch handbag. If you are just going out with friends to the mall you can have a nice casual shoulder bag. You can have a matching coin purse, key chain or cell phone cover as well. That’s the great thing about leather. It can all be coordinated. Leather is also a happy medium product. You don’t have to change handbags every time you go out. Leather is very versitale. If you want to stay basic you can purchase a black bag and a brown bag. Either color will go with everything.
