Proenza Schouler

Bookmark and Share
Proenza Schouler is the label to watch out for this season. The two designers, Lazaro Hernandez and Jack McCollough certainly have a unique take on fashion. They have created a label of their own and rather than designing around fore coming trends they simply have their own take on individuality and fashion.

The label portrays this idea of casual wear, however it’s formality which is shown through the details, which are finished to a very high standard making it that much more luxurious. The past two collections have been particularly eye catching, and there’s something very youthful about the label. Not only is there clothing desired, but the accessories also. The accessories this season have a preppy look about them. (The bags are influenced by satchels).

Burberry Summer 2008
  • Burberry Prorsum Trench Coats - There Autumn/Winter collection is amazing too (check out their aviator jackets)
  • Alexander Wangs accessories - They are expensive, but do have a very unique and individual look
Alexander Wang Summer 2010
  • Celine shoes and small bags - This is also an expensive label, however with a new creative director, the collections are beautiful. This season is out of this world and the accessories are to die for. The quality of the brand is of a very high standard. Check out these ankle boots with the silver heal...
Celine spring/summer 2010
  • Zara on the high street - has some really nice pieces which can blend in perfectly with designer pieces

The Right Pair of Jeans

Bookmark and Share
Shopping should be enjoyed, however when taking jean shopping into consideration, we all struggle.
Finding the right pair of jeans requires time and effort which is why writing this article to help you guys to understand your shape a little better.

Below are some helpful tips:
  • Jeans with Pockets help to reduce the size of your bottom, and the further apart the pockets the better. Those who want to increase the size opt for a pair of jeans with smaller pockets, or none at all.
  • Jeans are always that little more flattering and comfortable if they have a little stretch to them. Unless you have a figure like Kate Moss and prefer jeans which are slouchy like the 'boyfriend jeans.
  • Skinny jeans should be worn if you have slim legs. If you are slightly curvaceous go for the straight cut or bootcut.
  • The darker the denim the more flattering. If you go for a washed/bleached look, make sure it runs down the centre of the leg. If you have the bleached look on the bum make sure you look at a back view in the mirror as I can ensure you this usually enlarges this area.
Hope this has been some help to you all. x.

Hide Your Tummy

Bookmark and Share
I'm sure we have all experience trying on or wearing clothes where our tummies stuck out
due to improper fit. It is essential that the proportion, fit and fabric all work together with your
body shape for a great outfit..which transforms into having a great signature style.
A lot of good styles can be found at (who I here are collaborating with Kate Moss for their next collection)

1. For women with a little extra in the middle:

The four tops above hide the stomach area you want and has soft fabric that light weight
and not tight around the stomach, which is a big no no. Important rule: if your trying to hide a
part of you body like your stomach, derriere, whatever it is you never put patterns, large prints,
and tight fabric around it. The brown ruffle top has an empire waist strap that brings attention to the waist, the ruffles and detail on the shoulder actually makes the stomach area appear smaller. If you
notice all the tops either bring the waist line up to the rib cage, or has no emphasis on the waistline.
You can easily accessorize these tops into outfits for work, and weekend styling.

2. Evening wear that makes your waist to look slimmer:

This elegant black dress has an empire waist which brings your eyes upward towards the chest and away from the natural waist (the place we want to hide). The stone blue dress is also a high waist dress that makes petite women look longer, leaner and would look awesome with a citrus color like tomato, peach, or a nice creme dress shoe. The silver shift dress I love because the fabric is a linen blend, great for spring and the hemline is above the knees so for women shorter than 5'6, their legs look longer, leaner...paired with a nice stiletto of a contrasting color from the silver.

3. The Body Shaper
A great option is wearing a body shaper that keeps everything smooth and prevents fabric from pulling and it they make them in all sizes, women who want to appear more like a hour glass figure, this is something I highly recommend, your family and friends will notice the difference!
