For women's fashion.
Even with the more traditional holidays over, who would turn down another little present or two? Here’s a really handy New Years Eve – or late X-Mas! – gift guide for the ladies in your life.
Gifts For Her:
- The Beauty Conscious:
CLINIQUE Clean Skin, Great Skin Sonic System Purifying Cleansing Brush- Sephora
Women of all ages love to pamper themselves with cosmetics and skin care products and why shouldn’t they? This would be the perfect gift for the one who loves to keep her skin looking flawless.
Poppy picnic limited-edition Amazonian clay eye & cheek palette – Tarte cosmetics
Thankfully, even with the holiday season almost over, you can still get a variety of gift sets at a comparatively reasonable price. Same is the case with cosmetics and what better gift for a woman who loves to makeup then a set of all the essentials?
- For The One Who Loves Fashion:
All that Shimmers Dress In Black – Sophie and Trey
Nothing can make her as happy as a beautiful dress, so why not make her the happiest? You can get some gorgeous dresses at a price still that wouldn’t break your bank. This way, you’d be gifting her something she can productively and fashionably utilize.
Clutch Bag with Suede Fringing — ASOS
There is so much you can give to a woman who just loves to dress and accessorize well, like: a scarf, a bag, shoes, watch and what not; the choices are endless. But, a bag is something she can never say no to, so you know what she could always use!
- The Tech Geek:
Rotibox Washable Slouchy Bluetooth Beanie Hat Cap w/ Wireless Bluetooth Headphone Headset
Good for you that technology too comes in all shapes, sizes and prices so you can get your hands on a number of things or two. Baby, it’s so cold outside and there’s nothing better than a beanie as a holiday present. But wait, where is the tech twist in it? There is more to this seemingly normal beanie you can listen to music without plugging in any headphones because the beanie has a pair built in within it. So if she loves to go out for a walk or run then this beanie has something in it to musically enjoy this time.
- The Comic Nerd:
Star Wars Ewok Knit Hooded Scarf – Think Geek
If she is a star wars fan then there is something for everyone. She might be into everything star wars – yes, even the Ewoks! If that is the case then she might love some Ewok scarf warmth as a present for a cold ball-drop countdown.
- She Loves To Cook:
Press & Measure Herb Oil Infuser – Handpicked Collection
If there’s one thing a master chef woman wants it must be something that keeps her close to the kitchen and even closer to the oven. Let’s gift her something she can’t have enough of.
Copper Stand Mixer – Williams Sonoma
And if she loves to bake then you should definitely gift her something for the cakes. The mixer is looks great and work its mixing magic effortlessly.
Well, there you have a gift for every woman in your life. Have yourself a merry little Christmas!
The “Rene” pair from this chic collection of sneakers consists of half leather in the upper portions with tonal laces, liberal swaths of muted colors, and the premium crocodile branding.
My favorite entry, the Wytham, rocks 100% leather up top, darker colors, and a chunky sole to boot. And since it’s only $195 at ASOS, these won’t leave you too broke for a couple of mixed drinks at your local W hotel.
Just because you’re expecting doesn’t mean you can’t expect to wear fashionable clothing in the springtime! Pregnancy is a beautiful time in a woman’s life and should be celebrated with clothing that highlights your ever-growing baby bump. Whether you’re prepping for pregnancy or going through it now, I hope you enjoy these maternity fashion picks that’ll make you glow even more!
A hot trend right now is floral fashions. There’s no better time to rock a cute floral print garment than this season. Even while pregnant you can find floral print looks to bloom while you’re blooming your baby. My floral find is this charming MAMA Jersey Top from H&M.com. The dark blue top features a colorful flower print design that gives an average tee-shirt look a chic update.
Ladies and gents, it’s time for a contest! Win a gift certificate worth £50 (approx. $77 USD) to the famous and fabulous online retailer ASOS, courtesy for the fine people at ao.com. Wowee!
Entering is simple: Leave a comment on this post telling us your favorite brand of sneaker. It’s that easy (btw I’m one for PK Flyers). The contest ends on August 21 at 5pm EST.
Thanks again to ao for their generosity and good luck everyone!
Summer is definitely the time for catching sun, sand and waves. Whether you’re walking along the shores of tropical destinations or just strolling along sunlit parks, you’ll surely notice what’s hot and what’s not decidedly not. So search your closets, raid your shopping malls and gear up for your summer getaways (or whatever summer gig you’re into).
Thank god: We live in an age where men are getting more in touch with their fashion sense, but what about guys who just have no idea about how to wear shorts? Here’s a primer:
Khaki shorts are one of the must-haves this summer. Khaki shorts fit a little tighter than other types of shorts, but they are still loose enough to give that not-so-casual, not-so-formal look. Khaki shorts go well with a loose fit shirt or polo tee. Add on a pair of sockless loafers and you’re good to go. You can also go with white or beige canvas sneakers (or sandals, if you’re on the beach or just hanging out). If you want to lean more on the casual side, check out these cotton beach shorts from Marc by Marc Jacobs.
Loose and comfortable, cotton chino shorts are essential for the summer heat primarily because they are lighter than khaki shorts. Strut your stuff with Dolce & Gabbana, Banana Republic or Ralph Lauren chino shorts. Wear them with a short-sleeved polo tee for a semi-casual, semi-formal look. You can also wear chino shorts for a more formal summer outing, or for dinner dates in high-end restaurants by the beach. Just pair it with sockless loafers, deck, shoes or suede shoes.
If you plan on walking, camping or hiking, you’ll need shorts with lots of pockets for all your essentials. Light, loose and comfortable, cargo shorts are a fine addition to your wardrobe. You can use comfy sneakers if you want to go walking along familiar paths. If you plan to go up the mountains for your summer holiday, you can use more durable hiking shoes with socks on for comfort. Just make sure to wear a comfy cotton top for all that action.
Comfortable shorts in which you can easily move are perfect for your usual workout or casual day out. Drawstring waists, pockets or no pockets, sweatshorts come in different styles. Check out Diesel or Moncler sweatshorts and choose your preferred designs. You can pair it up with sneakers (the not-so-bulky ones) without socks. You can also wear sweatshorts when you want to relax at home and spend the day playing console games or just plain being a couch potato.
If you plan on going to the beach, it goes without saying that swim trunks are a must-have. Plain white tees go great with plaid swim trunks or trunks with designs or patterns. Ralph Lauren swim trunks with an elastic waistband give you a great fit. Look for quick-drying swim trunks made of cotton and nylon. Flip-flops are the perfect match for your sandy retreat.
And while you may normally think summer is all about pastel, light and bright colors, but black is still a classic. Spring/Summer 2011 fashion trendsetters like Louis Vuitton and Burberry rigged their collections with the staple black. If you think the summer bug hasn’t bitten yet and you feel somewhat on the “emo” side, you can go for all black—black top, black shorts, black loafers or deck shoes. Sockless, of course.
Lastly, since summer is all about the heat, pay more attention to the material of your clothes. Steer clear of non-absorbent material. Remember to wear clothes made of light, comfy and breathable fabric to stay cool under the sun.
