What Is In in 2010: 2

sheer-2Our next sexy spring and summer styles involves the sheer, the see through, the semi sheer, and so on. You get the idea.

Now, this does not mean that you have to bare it all and leave nothing to the imagination — far from it! Oh no, ladies, this style is all about the feminine. It is about subtlety — that lost art of sexiness that regrettably seems to have disappeared around the time Atlantis vanished under the sea.

Tight tops you can see right through? No way! Dresses that cover up nothing? Absolutely not!

How about sheer layers, creating a floaty, diaphanous look? A drape that is purely feminine, and sexy because it hints and teases rather than screaming and pointing at your sexuality in bright neon letters!

What Is In in 2010: 1

January 24th, 2010

slit-2There are going to be a lot of hot, sultry looks emerging in the spring and summer season of 2010 and we are going to take a look at the two steamiest ones.

This one will cause a reaction like fire and ice wherever you go: dresses with high, high slits. This is the look ideal for fashionistas and stylish girls who want to show off their legs but don’t feel that microscopic mini skirts are really their thing.

Dresses with high splits have run the gamut from Lanvin to Versace; the trend is just getting started.

To pull it off properly, make sure you stay away from flats. A look like this begs for your best pair of high heels.

Tanned legs are a plus but if that’s not you, at least promise to go bare legged.

Hot Holiday Fashions for New Year’s: 2

December 29th, 2009

animal-print-2Ready for some more hot New Year’s fashions? Well, for one thing, we have the titillating, mysterious combination of black with purple. These two colors are notoriously fantastic for night time events because they give one the air of an enigma.

The only key is to be careful about combining your colors. Your shoes, dress, and bag should not all be purple; make sure the black balances.

Another hot trend involves shoes. Specifically, animal boots and booties are so hot they almost spark! Stella McCartney knows how to work this trend, as you can see here.

Now, in general, these shoes should only be worn with shorter outfits — short skirts or dresses, minis, et cetera. The hem should fall above the knee. Sweater dresses in particular look good with these animalistic booties!

Hot Holiday Fashions for New Year’s: 1

December 27th, 2009

metallic-dress-2Fashionistas, the big day — and bigger night — is coming, it is only four days away! How many of you have decided what you are going to wear on New Year’s Eve?

Your outfit is important, you know. What you are wearing when the ball drops and you usher in a brand new year most definitely sets the tone for your stylishness in the coming year.

If you have not made a final decision on your fashionable ensemble, allow me to make some suggestions! Metallic dresses are all the rage for New Year’s Eve. Their glitz and glitter lend themselves perfectly to the glamor of the occasion.

However, a dress with this much sparkle demands understated accessories. Shoes, accessories, and makeup should all be a bit more neutral; do not take the focus away from your dress.

Looking the Part at Holiday Parties: 2

December 22nd, 2009

skirt-2You should also have three varying black skirts: short, medium, and long. Long skirts — and LBDs — should be worn for more formal occasions, with the former being paired with silk tops in lovely jewel tones.

The medium length skirts and dresses are ideal for more casual parties and get togethers. Again, the skirt can be paired with beautiful silk tops, in more subdued but still lovely shades.

Short skirts and little black dresses are great for the edgy, fun, and slightly wild parties during the holidays.

In all cases, you can really go to town with your accessories. Stand out with your shoes, find the perfect pieces of jewelry, and even get down hot with scarves, hats, gloves, and things of that nature.
