I must admit they can be intimidating, but they are family friendly and perfect for the girl who is not into the cheek-baring cutoffs. Plus they are a nice alternative to a skirt. I am a fan of them and J.Crew has them in the best colors at great prices with some added stretch for comfort and flattering to the figure.

Or go for the black and white tuxedo look, like the last photo, you will get three trends in one, as we know by now that black and white is big this spring as are tuxedos, how can you go wrong with a black and white tuxedo?

Guest Post: Glad2bawoman – Geometric Jewels

13 Mar

Geometric Jewelry!

The look is stylish, and edgy – jewellery that relies on geometric shapes looks urban chic when styled on the neck, ears or even fingers and arms of a fashionista. Why? Well the answer is simple – it makes you look even more feminine, given that the angular bling compliments the soft lines of a feminine neck – or arm and the delicate rounded tips of the ears.

Wear a necklace with triangles – the look says smart and flares out attractively against the neck. This is a fabulous trend this year simply because geometric jewellery cannot go wrong where the fashion factor is concerned. Wear a pair of square earrings instead of the usual hoops or small square danglers. Geometric earrings are a perfect way to accessories a monochrome outfit. Silver triangles on the ears also look stylish and playful for an evening out. Experiment with many triangles linked together instead of just one.

If you are daring, and love loud colours then go for a geometric necklaces in bright colours – either in one colour or multi-coloured. Either way, they are a great way to jazz up a boring outfit. Earrings with geometric designs, colourful geometric pattern on plain round studs, geometric shaped wire bracelets the list goes on.

Geometric jewellery in neon shades is another hot favourite with necklaces, bracelets, pendants, and earrings – wear a bright yellow neon necklace with triangles with a hot pink top and blue pants – you will look like a flower – but make sure you can carry off the look because that combination is not for everyone!

Geometric shaped rings also look great – you can get them in metal shades or textured. Wooden is another great choice for earrings and quirky assembled necklaces or stacked bracelets. Browse the internet for some fabulous designs for geometric jewellery.

However, be warned that you might have a problem accessorizing your geometric jewellery with your outfits because they are a little difficult to pair with traditional clothes, Indian-wear, or something with too much fluff and flounce. If you are someone who wears mostly monochromes or sober colours, this jewellery is a fun way to brighten up your outfit

Fall Layering

3 Dec

Don’t be afraid of color  during the fall. You would be surprised how many people appreciate color during the season and you mustn’t be shy about layering and mixing patterns.  If layering, keep one article of clothing fitted, either the upper or lower waist and you will be safe. I posted some layering photos giving you a better idea of how to balance the look without looking frumpy.

Take a peek.
