Fashion and Style Tips for the Season

The new year is in full swing and the sales are still on in most shops.  I have been busy getting some wardrobe essentials and I have been quite impressed with some of the sales in shops. The bargains are really good. It is worth having a look to see if anything on your shopping list/wish list is now on sale. I love buying items on half price or even less! The bigger the sale, the better. If you are after some fashion items this season, you may find these fashion and style tips very useful. It makes sense to go shopping with a list of what you do want, so you don’t end up with unplanned purchases that look good.

Classic shoes never go out of fashion

Apart from being comfortable, classic shoes are always in vogue. Which is why I am like going for classic footwear. They are stylish, comfy and always bang on trend. What is there not to like? If you are after some fashionable shoes this sales, go for classic shoes, they never go out of fashion.

 

Go for statement accessories

I love having statement accessories, they are always in style. Statement accessories can switch up any look for the better. This is the best time to add more statement accessories to your collection. Many are currently on sale as I type. I have seen a few I like in many high street shops, and I plan to add them to my accessories collection. I am particularly interested in necklaces and earrings. What sort of accessories do you like wearing?

 

Tartan pieces

Tartan is one print that never seems to go out of fashion. It is always trendy, which is why I am buying some Tartan pieces this season. I love the print so much and it is super easy to style. Are you a fan of the Tartan print?

 

Invest in a chic coat

Coats are great pieces to invest in especially if you live in a cold region. I like to have a couple of coats in different colours and styles, to create various looks. If there is one piece you need invest in this season, I would advise you go for a chic coat. They are always in style and super handy to have around. A woman can never have too many coats.

 

Add some colour to your wardrobe

It is so easy to end up wearing monochrome colours only especially at this time of the year. Adding some colour to your wardrobe will help wake it up a little and add some vibe to your look. I love going for colourful accessories and sweaters.

Kids Fashion – Pink Dress for Girls

Kids Fashion is big in our house with my 5-year-old twins. They are very into fashion, especially my daughter of course. She is super girly and loves her dresses and her skirts. And she loves them to come in pink or purple! There was a time I couldn’t get her to wear anything else. It had to be a dress or a skirt. Thankfully, that phrase has since passed. She is more open to wearing other types of clothing, but you can still easily catch her in a dress; a pink dress for girls!

I have decided to feature more of kids fashion and style on Fashion and Style Police because it has become a huge part of my life. I am forever shopping for the kiddies! I shop for them a lot more than I shop for myself. They are growing kids, so their wardrobes are forever changing, which is fun and games for them, but not for my wallet! I envy their wardrobe and I wish I had a reason to change all my clothes every year, but since I don’t, I can get the satisfaction from admiring their lovely pieces and accessories.

In this outfit post, my Duchess is wearing a pink lace dress. I got this while holidaying in the US last year. It is such a pretty pink shade and the lace material is a beauty. I love the attention to detail on this dress. It is one of her favourite dresses. She loves wearing it to occasions that need a bit of dress-up, and it works every time.

I am also loving the gorgeous gold shoes. They are her favourite pair of shoes, and I know why. They are simply so beautiful, and they suit most of her clothing great!

How to Rock the Sparkle Trend this Holiday Season

Sparkles! Yes, the Christmas season is a sparkly season and the sparkles are all out! But this season, the Christmas decorations are not the only things sparkling. From hats to jewellery and makeup to shoes, there is a bit of glitter everywhere. And that is what the sparkle trend is all about.

Is it something about the Christmas vibe that’s inspiring all the shimmer? Maybe. But whatever is the source of the inspiration, Christmas is the time to get the sparkle right?

I have observed a lot of shimmery blunders and creative glittery ideas in the fashion scene so I thought it would be great to do a bit of damage control and let you all in on the best ways to rock the sparkles.

 

Ease up on the glittery makeup

This may sound a bit counterintuitive since this article is focusing on rocking the sparkle trend, but if you want the glitter to resonate the spirit of the festive season, then too much glitter is not the way.

Glittery eyeshadow, especially in the classic colours of silver and gold, work amazing. This is true only if you restrict the sparkles to your eyelids alone. What some people do is to abuse the glitter and add a lot of shimmer on their cheekbones or apply a lot of glittery lipstick. That makes your face full of glitter and you miss the whole aim of keeping up with the sparkle trend.

The rule of thumb here is to flatter a specific part of your face or keep it moderate on all sides. Aim to strike a balance. You don’t need to put on too much glitter to be fabulous.

 

Get your hair involved in the sparkles

I love this idea and I think it’s something worth a try this Christmas. It’s the glittery ponytail. What’s wonderful about this new fashion trend is that it’s really easy to recreate and it’s just right for the festive season.

So far, the best way to sport the glittery ponytail is to have the tip of your ponytail covered in styling gel mixed with glitter. Next hold it together with hairspray to let it all set in. The end result is amazing.

If you’re a little adventurous this Christmas, I recommend you give it a try.

Avoid sparkle overload in your outfits

You know that shimmery dress that you admire but makes you wonder if it will be a good idea to buy it or not? Buying a glittery dress is a tough decision to make. Although it looks great, the amount of glitter can be overwhelming.

The key is to creatively balance out the glitter and the best way to do this is to use non-glittery accessories. For example, you can easily tone down a glittery gold dress with black heels, clutch purse and a long dark coloured necklace. You can even take it further with a dark jacket.

If you’re wearing something that has no glitter and you want to add a little shine to it, then make your sparkly accessories your best friends. Shiny accessories help direct people’s attention to where the sparkle is. It’s that effective!

 

How do you plan to rock the sparkle trend this holiday season?
