How many of you get dressed in the morning in a cozy, flexible, comfortable T-shirt dress and then slip your feet into sneakers? I personally would consider a nice pair of high heels or jeweled sandals as the best shoes to wear with my T-shirt dress, but the style of mixing the dress and tennis shoes together has become widely popular. So much so that I now find the look cute and girly.

Many people who work in offices wear high heels with their office dresses or dress suits, then slip into tennis shoes on their breaks and lunch time to do some walking. The style now is to simply wear you sneakers all day and night long, to offset your trendy T-shirt dress. A mix and match fashion statement at its best!

Sneakers, also known as athletic shoes, tennis shoes, gym shoes, sports shoes, runners and trainers, are shoes primarily designed for sports or other forms of physical exercise, but which are now also worn for everyday footwear. Sneakers have flexible soles made of rubber or synthetic material and an upper part made with leather or synthetic fabrics.  The name “sneakers” originally referred to how quiet the rubber soles were on the ground, in contrast to noisy standard hard leather sole dress shoes. If you wear sneakers you can sneak up on someone, while someone wearing heels or hard soled shoes cannot.

Sneakers Fun Fact: The name “sneaks” is used by prison inmates to refer to warders because of the rubber-soled shoes they wore.

Notable Brands of Sneakers Include:

Adidas, Air Jordan, Brooks, Converse, Diadora, Dunlop, Ethletic, Hummel, Kappa, Keds, Lescon, Merrell, Mizuno, Nike, PF Flyers, Pro-Keds, Puma, Reebok, Skechers, Umbro, Vans and Yeezy.

Popular Types of Sneakers:

  1. High Tops (Cover the ankle).
  2. Low Tops (Expose the ankle).
  3. Mid-Cut Sneakers (In-between high tops and low tops).
  4. Sneaker Boots (Extend to the calf).
  5. Slip-Ons (Expose the ankles and don’t have shoe laces).

T-shirt dresses and sneakers aren’t only for office breaks!

T-shirt dresses normally have short sleeves and a round neckline, much like the T-shirt. T-shirt dresses are made of cotton textile in a stockinette or jersey knit and have a distinctively pliable texture compared to dresses made of cloth or finer fabrics. The hemlines of T-shirt dresses vary from miniskirt to ankle length, depending on the cut of the garment and your personal preference. No matter the length, T-shirt dresses paired with sneakers gives off a youthful, fun, sexy vibe.

Whether you’re walking down the street, strutting through the mall or merely dressing hip, mixing T-shirt dresses and tennis shoes definitely gives off a look and style that says “I have it and I know it!”

Get the “it” factor when dressed in a trendy T-shirt dress and sassy sneakers.

Most everyone has a favorite color, and there is no denying that bold, beautiful, bountiful colors add a vibrancy and splendor to our surroundings. Color is the characteristic of human visual perception described through color categories, with names such as red, yellow, green, blue, purple and pink, to name  few. On the color wheel, colors such as red, orange and yellow are known as warm colors and exude a masculine influence, while colors such as blue, green and purple are referred to as cool colors with a feminine vibe.

In fashion, colors speak loudly. Although neutral tones of blacks and whites are always stylish, neon, bold, bright colors are making a big splash on the Fall/Winter 2018 catwalk!

The psychology of color is one of the most interesting aspects of fashion, branding and marketing. Did you know that yellow is psychologically the happiest color in the color spectrum? It’s always been my favorite color as it represents sunshine, warm days and happiness.  If you’ve done any online or in-store clothes shopping recently, you’ll see garments in yellows, oranges, greens and purples are huge, much like during the decadent years of the 1980s and 1990s. Wearing effervescent colors not only stands out to others, but they make you as the wearer feel good and cheerful as well.

If you want to stand out in a crowd, think pink. The brighter and more neon shades of pink make you noticeable and stunning. No matter what you think of the color pink (too girly, too feminine, too dainty) when dressed in pink fashions you’ll show your passion for finer fashion.

If you tend to dress in more basic colors, such as navy blue, gray, black or white, you can add some pizzazz and bang to your outfit through colorful shoes and purses. Imagine wearing an all black outfit and carrying a neon yellow handbag! Or add a roaring red purse to your white silk pantsuit. Then slip your feet into beautiful colored pumps and you’ve elevated your overall outfit to runway status!

Fall/Winter 2018 brings colored clothing back to the catwalk!


Bold colors in clothing exude clarity, warmth, cheerfulness, confidence, boldness and youthfulness. Beautiful bright colors come across as optimistic, friendly and exciting. In a study titled “Impact of Color on Marketing”, researchers found that up to 90% of snap judgements made about products can be based on color alone. If you doubt this, think about automobiles. The color of the car has a huge impact on the looks and preference of the auto. You can take a vehicle that is the same year, make and model, but depending on the color of the car, the car can look either cool and classy or standard and average. The same car; a different color!

Color makes an extreme difference in the look of your outfit and how you feel when wrapped in the clothing! Cheerful colors equals a cool mood and a positive attitude!

Colors both influence and show windows of our personality. Think ravenous reds and bashful blues. Think of your own perceptions of various colors. Perhaps you see red as exciting, pink as feminine, brown as rugged, green as cool, etc. In much the same way as you perceive the colors, you will feel these same feelings when you wear clothing in these colors. If you think of black clothing as sophisticated and cool, you’ll feel elite and sexy when adorned in black garments.
Harness the powerful effects of color in clothing and step into Fall/Winter 2018 like the colorful fashion queen that you know you are. A colorful clothing star!

Prince was a pop culture music icon. Tom Cruise dominated the box office. Bell bottom pants were the rage and big hair ruled. Wearing bright colored clothing of yellows, oranges, and greens made you a stand out fashion queen or king. Along with bands such as The Rolling Stones, Aerosmith, and Pink Floyd, the 1980s rocked! MTV brought us music videos which were something the world had never seen. Remember Michael Jackson’s Thriller?

The 1980s were a decade of flamboyance and fun, and its fashion trends are making a major comeback this Fall. Great trends stand the test of time and never truly go away.

Popular 80s Trends that are Fashionable for Fall 2018:

Bell Bottom Jeans: Both bell bottom and hip hugger jeans were all the rage in the 80s. Eric Clapton’s hit “Bell Bottom Blues” proves this to be true! Bell bottom and flared pants are back in fashion today, especially in low waisted pants. Let bell bottom jeans ring your bell.

Short Shorts and Hot Pants: In the 80s, gals wore their shorts and their skirts extremely short. Hot pants and miniskirts set the stage for contemporary fashion. Today, think Daisy Dukes for short shorts and the adored miniskirt has never gone away! To really spice the look up and go full retro, wear your short shorts with fishnet or opaque stockings! Priceless!

Big Hair: Big hair and bouffant hairdos ruled in the 80s. Guess what? Long, plush, coveted heads of hair are back in style. While short haircuts are cool and sassy, long, teased, big hair looks bold and brassy! This fall, large curled hair rules them all.

Platform High Heeled Shoes: In the 80s, if you were decked out in bell bottom jeans, the only fitting shoe that would do your look true justice was the platform shoe. Whether the heel was thin and spiked or large and chunky, platform shoes were the bomb. Even Mick Jagger, Elton John, and Freddie Mercury performed live on stage in platform shoes. Step into Fall 2018 where once again the gorgeous platform high heeled shoe takes center stage.

Bright Colored Clothing: Before the earth colors of blues, browns, and mauves took over in the 90s and early 2000s, bright colors of yellows, oranges, and greens defined the 80s color schemes. From clothing to furniture to houses, bright bold colors were in. Even yellow cars dominated the road. Welcome Fall 2018, where the fun colors of yellow, orange, and green are coming back in a big way. Top your bright colored clothing off with a straw or felt hat and turn heads from every which way.

Patent Leather Boots: These beautiful patent leather boots were all the rage in the 1960s and 1970s, spilling over into the 1980s. Whether your choice is thigh high patent leather boots, knee high boots or ankle boots, it’s true that all boots are made for fashionable walking. Walk yourself into Fall 2018 with these fabulous, bold boots!

No matter what your favorite fashion decade might be, clothing and beauty trends may come and go, but what works best for you should always be your main choice. Treating yourself and going through each day in style with a smile on your face means you’ll always win the fashion race! Other popular trends of the 80s that you can bring back if you desire are feathered, layered haircuts, shoulder pads, Ray-Ban sunglasses, fringe suede purses, dark blue eyeshadow and pink frosted lipstick.

Return of the 1980s: 80s trends making a comeback this Fall 2018! Don’t wait to be a retro-1980s fashion plate!

It’s easy to see why colorful, popping, exciting neon lips are all the rage this summer. Neon lips are in! Bright lips not only cause your entire face to stand out, but are fun and fashionable too. Sexy, sensual, neon colored lips are the way to go and I would never lie to you!

Colors make the world go round, and this is true in cosmetics. From basic shades to pastels to neon, experimenting with various colors of makeup allows you to highlight your facial features and to bring out your own unique natural beauty. Neon lipsticks and lip glosses are adored by all glamour girl cuties!

Lipstick is a cosmetic product containing pigments, oils, waxes and emollients that apply color, texture and protection to the lips. Many colors and types of lipstick exist. In addition to lipsticks, lip balms can be worn to add color and hydration. If you’re one who prefers lips that give off a dry look, go with matte lipsticks. If you relish sensual wetness and shine, use a lip gloss.

Neon Fun Fact: We all know that neon colors are brighter version of colors, but what makes neon? Neon is actually a chemical element with the symbol Ne and atomic number 10. Neon is a noble gas that is colorless and odorless with about two-thirds the density of air. Neon gas was discovered in 1898 as one of the three residual rare inert elements remaining in dry air, after nitrogen, oxygen, argon and carbon dioxide were removed. Neon gas produces a bright red emission spectrum and gives a distinct reddish-orange glow when used in low voltage neon glow lamps, high voltage discharge tubes and neon advertising signs.

Coat your lips in sexy neon colored lipsticks and you’ll be a walking advertisement for true, luscious glamour!

Lipstick Fun Fact: Ancient Sumerian men and women were the first to invent and wear lipstick, around 5,000 years ago. They crushed gemstones and used them to decorate their faces, mainly on the lips and around the eyes. Around 3000 BC to 1500 BC, women in the ancient Indus Valley Civilization applied red tinted lipstick to their lips for face adornment. Ancient Egyptians wore lipstick to show social status.

Lip coloring started to gain popularity in 16th century England. During the time of Queen Elizabeth I, bright red lips and a stark white face became fashionable.

Glam through the summer season in sultry lips of neon!

Lipstick Colors That Look Outstanding in Neon:

  1. Pink
  2. Purple
  3. Orange
  4. Green
  5. Yellow
  6. Red
  7. Blue
  8. Coral

Lipstick comes in many variations including lip balms, glosses, crayons, pencils, liners and stains. Balms and glosses tend to be more translucent and not as dark or vibrant.

Neon colored lipsticks are always stunning and vibrant for any va va voom fashion vixen!

Look sexy, youthful, darling and hip when you go through your day in bright neon lips!

“I noticed you clear at the other end of the aisle from your popping pink lips.”

“If a gal is going to decorate her face with gorgeous makeup, neon colors is my tip.”

“I do say your pretty pink lips make your entire face and your blue eyes stand out.”

“I would guess you are complimenting me, or flirting with me no doubt.”

“If you aren’t busy this afternoon perhaps we could share a bite to eat.”

“There’s an outside café right down the street. A tasty lunch would be sweet.”

Neon Lipsticks: Dazzle with your lips and stay quick on your feet because you never know who you are going to meet!

Perhaps there is no hairstyle that is cuter, cooler and more perfect for summer than the trending bob! No matter the shape of your face, be it round, oval, square or heart shaped, the short, sassy hairstyle that is the bob works as the elegant, sultry frame for your face.

A bob cut is a shorter haircut in which the hair is typically cut straight around the head at about jaw level, often with bangs (fringe) at the front. The bob is generally cut at the level of the ears or above the shoulders.

Great Ways to Wear the Bob:

  1. Parted down the middle.
  2. Parted down the side.
  3. The ends level with your chin.
  4. The ends just above the shoulders.
  5. Straight
  6. Curled
  7. With Bangs
  8. Without Bangs

Whichever way you prefer to style your bob, the final look is summery, youthful and fun. The bob is a trending hairstyle that does work well on everyone!

Ana Wintour of Vogue magazine is known for her bob haircut parted down the middle, with bangs. As early as the 1920s The Times was suggesting that the bob hairstyle was passé. By the end of the 1920s, the dominant female hairstyle in the Western world was the bob. The chic hairstyle then spread beyond the West, as women in other countries began to adopt the bob haircut as a sign of modern times. Close fitting hats also became popular, and worked perfect with short hair.

One great way to recognize a true bob haircut is by the sharp lines of the cut. The bob often turns in at the ends, resting under the chin.

Types of Bobs:

  1. A-line Bob: A typical bob cut, with slightly longer hair that frames the face, curling under the chin.
  2. Buzz-Cut Bob: The bob is shoulder length in the front and close cropped at the back.
  3. Chin Length Bob: Cut straight to the chin, with or without bangs.
  4. Inverted Bob: Similar to the A-line bob, but with stacked layers in back. The perimeter of the cut is curved rather than being a straight line.
  5. Shaggy Bob: A messy bob layered with a razor.
  6. Shingle Bob: A cut that is tapered very short in the back, exposing the hairline at the neck. The hair on the sides is formed into a single curl or point on each cheek.
  7. Shoulder Length Bob: A blunt bob that reaches the shoulders and has very few layers.

Whatever type of bob you choose, when you wear this gorgeous, short, fun hairstyle you will never lose!

Win the hair fashion game in a bob hairstyle! The fun cut will match your pleasing smile!

Bob hairstyles look exceptionally sexy and sultry when you wear long, dangling earrings. The bob haircut is short enough to show off the earrings and bring out the sexy siren vixen that resides inside every glamour girl! Give the bob haircut a whirl!

Hobnob in this summer’s trending hairstyle: the bob!

If you’re someone who normally wears your hair long and you want to try something new, I suggest the short, sassy, classy, sexy bob in the summertime or the entire year through!

“I didn’t recognize you with your shorter hair. You look fiery and fierce.”

“I wanted a shorter cut to show off my earrings. I just got my ears pierced.”

“I love the way the cut is layered in back and the front ends curl under your chin.”

“This cooler hairdo feels so freeing and liberating. I love the new look I’m in.”

“The bangs and the middle part are a switch from your long hair parted on the side.”

“It didn’t take me long to select this blunt cut for summer. I know I’ll love the ride!”

The Bob: A haircut that works for all face shapes and hair colors. A splendid cool, chic new hairdo for summer!

The pretty and pleasing fabric known as plaid never goes out of style. As early as the 1830s, plaid was a popular fabric pattern in the world of fashion. Plaid is a recognizable pattern consisting of criss-crossed horizontal and vertical bands of multiple colors. Plaid originated in woven wool, but today plaid fabrics are available in many other materials.

Plaid is made with alternating bands of colored threads woven as both warp and weft at right angles to each other. The weft is woven in a simple twill, two over – two under the warp, advancing one thread at each pass. This forms visible diagonal lines where different colors cross, which gives the appearance of new colors blended from the original ones. The resulting blocks of color repeat vertically and horizontally in a distinct pattern of squares and lines known as a ‘sett’.

Ready, set, go…look fabulous from head to toe when you are dressed in the cool, chic, rad fabric that is plaid!

Plaid Color Shades and Meanings:

  1. Modern: A plaid that is colored using chemical dyes as opposed to natural dyes.
  2. Ancient: A lighter shade of plaid that represent the colors that would result from the fabric aging over time.
  3. Muted: Plaid which is shade between modern and ancient. This type of plaid is very modern, dating only from the 1970s. This shade is said to be the closest match to the shades attained by natural dyes used before the mid-19th century.

For those of you that prefer a splash of plaid as opposed to being wrapped in plaid, why not carry a plaid handbag or doll yourself up in plaid accessories? A touch of plaid looks exceptionally graceful and elegant on anyone, yes, even men!

Plaid Fun Fact: Plaid is recorded by counting the threads of each color that appear in the sett. The thread count not only describes the width of the stripes on a sett, but also the colors used. For example, the thread count “K4 R24 K24 Y4” breaks down as 4 black threads, 24 red threads, 24 black threads and 4 yellow threads. The first and last thread of the thread count are the pivot points.

The word ‘plaid’, derived from the Scottish Gaelic ‘plaide’, meaning blanket, was first used to describe any rectangular garment. Over time, the term ‘plaid’ was used to describe blankets themselves.

Today plaid is a pretty, pleasing pattern that looks both elegant and fun and is adored and recognized by everyone!

The fashion pandemonium plaid is never a fad!

Although plaid prints can be found in all colors, plaid fabrics consisting of black, red and yellow are the most popular. For a striking, stunning sight, dress in plaid garments of black and white.

“I feel that I can play checkers on your checkered dress.”

“This pattern is plaid. Checkered is cute but plaid is the best.”

“Can you explain the difference between checkered and plaid to me?”

“Checkered patterns make only squares; plaid is squares and lines that are easy to see.”

“The different blocks of color in the material seem to run up and down.”

“Horizontal and vertical. Plaid is one of the most beautiful patterns around.”

Plaid: A fashionable and stylish pattern that looks fantastic on skirts, dresses, jackets and shoes, or any other garments you choose!

When it comes to fashion garments, necklines have a large impact on the look and style of the clothing. The neckline is the top edge of a garment that surrounds the neck, especially from the front view.  For each garment worn above the waist, the neckline is primarily a style line and may be a boundary for further shaping of the upper edge of the clothing with a collar, cowl, darts or pleats.

One type of neckline that is sexy, sensual and perfect for summer is the halterneck. Halterneck is a style of women’s clothing straps that runs from the front of the garment around the back of the neck, leaving the impression from behind that nothing is holding up the dress or the top.

In addition to tops, blouses and dresses, the halterneck style is used in bathing suits to maximize sun tan exposure on the back, and minimize tan lines. The halterneck style creates the look of a backless dress or top. The neck strap itself can be covered by your hair, leaving the impression from behind that nothing is holding up the garment.

Halterneck Fashion Tip: If a bra is worn with a halterneck, the bra is generally strapless or of halterneck construction itself, to avoid exposing the back straps of a typical bra. For those of you who are fashion fearless, exposing bra straps is a popular trend.

Other Popular Types of Necklines:

  1. Boat Neck – A high, wide, slightly curved neckline.
  2. Deep Necklines – Low necklines in either V, U or square shapes, revealing various amounts of cleavage.
  3. Jewel Neckline – Round and sits at the base of the throat.
  4. Off the Shoulder – The neckline rests low and below the shoulders and collar bone.
  5. One Shoulder Necklines – Asymmetrical necklines that cut across the torso diagonally, exposing one shoulder.
  6. Polo Neck – High, close fitting collars that wrap around the neck (turtlenecks).
  7. Scoop Neck – Curved shaped Us, with the arms of the U hanging on the shoulders.
  8. Square Neck – Three linear edges, with the bottom edge meeting the side edges at a right angle.
  9. V-Neck – Two diagonal lines from the shoulders meet on the chest, creating a V shape.

For a cool, chic neckline that passes the hot summer weather test, the halterneck is truly  the best!

Neckline Fun Fact: The shape of your necklines can be modified in many ways, by adding a collar, scarf, overlaying the neckline with another fabric or decorating the edges with picots, ruffles or fringe. The neckline can be a sharp edge of fabric or a more gentle cowl, and can be accentuated by patterns in the material itself.

For summer and beach wear, a halter top is incredibly popular. A halter top is a sleeveless shirt similar to a tank top, but with the straps being tied behind the neck as opposed to the straps going over the shoulders, like spaghetti straps. In another style of the halter top, there is only a narrow strap behind the neck and a narrow strap behind the middle of the back, so that the top is predominantly backless. This design resembles many bikini tops, although the halter top covers the chest more and may cover all of the abdomen.

High end glamour in a halterneck!

“Your evening gown is simply divine. You’re ready to hit the town.”

“I love the halter neckline and tight fit. The best fashion style around.”

“The halterneck works on garments that are casual or extremely elegant.”

“Yes. A true glamour girl can never go wrong in a gorgeous halterneck outfit.”

“The backless look and bare shoulders are a true fashion win.”

“Halternecks provide high end glamour no matter what garment you’re in.”

Halterneck: Always cool, always chic, always an eye candy fashion treat!

Faux animal prints in clothing and fashion is making a roaring comeback in the 2018 summer/fall collections. Animal print clothing is made to resemble the pattern of the skin and fur of an animal such as a leopard, cheetah, zebra, tiger, spotted hyena, striped hyena, giraffe and monkey. The three most popular animal prints in fashion are the zebra, tiger and leopard.

In addition to clothing, trendy, fierce, feisty animal prints look fantastic on handbags, footwear and accessories.

 

A major difference between animal prints and fur clothing is that animal prints generally use fake fur instead of actual animal coat.

Animal prints have long been a popular garment in the fashion world. Animal prints generally exude a certain style, appearing expensive and exotic looking, hence they are a symbol of wealth and status. Throughout history, kings and other high people have used animal print rugs and such as a sign of status.

Animal prints became extremely popular for women in the United States in the 1960s during the Bohemian movement.

Grrr…unleash your inner animal!

Release your inner roar in animal prints!

Animal print clothing is sexy, fierce and fun. Much like animals, the print even looks sleek and fast. If you want to be noticed in a crowd, dress in animal prints and your inner roar will be heard out loud!

 

Animal Print Fun Fact: In addition to clothing, animal prints may also refer to artwork of animals printed on canvas or paper. The art prints may replicate the same skin or fur pattern found on the animal, but a flat photographic representation printed on artistic media, such as wall decorations. Art prints are commonly used for other decorations, including rugs, wallpaper and painted surfaces.
