PURPLE REIGN

Be eccentric now, don’t wait for old age to wear purple.

The colour purple is associated with luxury, elegance, royalty.

A purple dress will give you a classic look and help you stand out in the crowd .

Purple comes in different shades and every woman can find a hue that enhances her skin tone.

Many women are intimidated by a purple outfit because they often wonder how to wear it, what shoes or accessories to wear with it.

Personally I wear purple with colours of the same family like lavender, lila………. I go for the analogic mix

You can also choose contrasting colours.

For the contrasting colours use colours that are opposite to purple like Yellow.

You can also be more daring by going for colourfull accessories such as red, pink, salmone,blue, fuchsia.

This is currently a very fashionable style, called Colour Blocking.

There are many good things to be found under a shabby straw hat.

The straw hat is a must have accessory for the summer, besides being a perfect way for adding a hip and trendy touch to your outfit, it can also be used to give your dressing casual or more romantic look.

Straw hats have always dominated the street style during summer.

Whether you wear the straw hat for sun protection, or as a hair accessory the straw hat will always elevate your outfit.

In the 19th century wealth folks were seen wearing the straw hat on their stroll through the country side.

SATISFY YOUR SENSES, GET INSPIRED BY THE 30s

Don’t try to be other people’s mirror reflecting their flaws. Rather clean your own mirror so that you can see a reflection of your true self and dare to be who you are!!

In the 30s women wore dresses it didn’t matter if they were at work or at home. It was important to wear a dress to show their feminity.

It was a return to more gentle ladylike appearances. Budding rounded busts and waistline curves were seen and hair became softer and prettier as hair perms improved. Be Proud to be a woman and show it.

Cloths were feminine, fashion of the 1930s was directly influenced by the wall street crash of October 24 1929 and the subsequent depression .

The focus turned away from new clothing and remaking the clothes one already owned, became very fashionable and gave a boost to fashion design.

BLACK & RED DRESS

Get excited and enthusiastic about your own dream. This excitement is like a forest fire you can smell it, taste it and see it from a mile away “Denis Waitley”

The combination of black and red finds its origin in the 80’s People continued to love the style up till today because the combination of this opposite colours is nothing other than the promise of happiness.

The best length for a black and red dress is at the knee or shorter. It shows more of your legs and makes you look taller and leaner.

Women’s clothing in 1980 ran from conservative to extravagant fantasy. Many designers reached back in history for inspiration. They looked to the Middel Ages, the Renaissance and the Victorian era . A few avant garde designers took their cues from futurism and designed clothes that look like costumes.

Traveling back in time to re live a retro 80s style would be an ultimate experience because the fashion was about looking sexy, seductive, by accentuating all your best assets.

The 1980s fashion trends can be difficult to work into a modern wardrobe especially since they can have a costume like appearance.

However as you see, the 80s fashion can be worn in a modern way and still look stylish
