Holiday Fashion 2012

As we approach the holidays this 2012 year, some of us mayfind ourselves baffled on what to wear! There are so many trends, which areconstantly changing – we can’t keep up sometimes! However, don’t let thatconcept intimidate you. Pick a trend and rock it! We thought we’d share some tips we recommend fordressing this festive season!

DRESS TO IMPRESS. How often can us gals get dolled up? MakeChristmas or New Year’s an excuse!  Buythat dress or outfit that might be a little out there and become a “belle ofthe ball”! 

DRESS FOR YOUR BODY TYPE. Just because you see pictures or clotheson mannequins, doesn’t necessarily mean it will transcend well on our bodytypes. We recommend trying it on first! Online shopping can be sketchysometimes, so go into stores to try it on!

GIVE IT A CHANCE. Some clothing pieces might look weird onthe hanger, but we recommend to give it a try. Everyone has different body types and the key is toknowing what styles look good on you. It's all about trial and error!

HOLIDAY COUPONS. Make sure to look out for coupons or couponcodes to buying holiday outfits. There are so many sales out there and somestores are blowing out buy one get one free. For instance, Foreign Exchange ishaving BOGO sales in store right now! 

SPARKLE, METALLICS,  AND SHIMMER. We absolutely love to wear sequins this time of the year. However, one obsessionwe love are metallic pieces! Whether it’s metallic sweaters or shoes, we can’tget enough!

Mix It Up!

Mixed prints can be a fashion challenge this season, but don’t let the concept intimidate you! Many fashion designers have sent their models down the runway with an assortment of prints, and we love the idea! Even certain celebs such as Kristin Cavillari or Rachel Bilson have donned the mixed prints trend.  Be confident and rock the varied print look!

  • Colors: Stay within the same color family such as neutrals or similar color hues. 
  • Scales: Try pairing dainty prints with bold, larger ones. In addition, try pairing dense prints with those more spaced out.
  • Basics: Use a solid piece to help break up patterns for a clean, chic look.
  • Contrasts: Geometric and edgy prints work well with softer prints. 
  • Easy Styles: 
    • Soft stripes paired with floral
    • Nautical stripes paired with polka dot
    • Color  block pieces paired with abstract prints

Sheer Determination!

Is less considered more when it comes to wearing the sheer fashion trend? Sheer materials consist of airy or transparent fabric or most commonly, chiffon.  Many gals are becoming more determined and daring when it comes to showing more skin! However, some people don’t know how to rock this trend. The key is to be tasteful in how much skin to show!  Here are some quick tips!

  • LAYER . Sheer tops are great for summer, but as transition into fall, you can always dress it up or make it classy by wearing a blazer, jacket, vest, or cardigan! It’s all about playing with different layers and seeing what fits your body type!
  • TANK, CAMISOLE, OR TUBE TOP. Mix a sheer top with a tank top beneath.  We recommend with sticking to the color of your sheer top. For instance, if you have a black sheer top, wear a black tank top. Other colors might be distracting and even take away from your sheer top.
  • SIMPLE TOPS WITH SHEER BOTTOMS. If you have a sheer skirt, it’s best to pair it with tops that are not too loud and won’t take away from your sheer bottom.
  • ACCESSORIES.  You want to show off the breezy material, so make sure to keep the accessories basic.

June 23, 2012 marked our first time attending IMATS and it was a complete success! It was pure heaven being surrounded by so many amazing cosmetic products, but can become overwhelming. Months before the event we scanned through list of vendors to select a few we would visit. In addition, we researched the products of those brands and made a list of things we wanted to make sure that the total would fit our set budget. Most cosmetics are discounted at IMATS, but they vary from company to company. Aside from having a blast at this full day event, we ended the evening at the Beautylish Cupcake event! We successfully purchased some of our favorite products and remained within our budget. Check out the products we purchased below!

Note: IMATS will be in January next year, not June.
