List of Different Types Of Fashion Styles

There are different types of fashion styles. The idea of fashion styles is often misunderstood and is often less complicated than it seems. If you understand the different types of fashion styles, your shopping and apparel would be much easier. According to the similarities in design, pattern, color and style line all the apparels are categorized. Such types of fashion styles often convey the common theme and refer to a specific group of people who like that fashion style. And in contrast to this, fashion style refers to the groups of personality trait which also have the matching specific fashion theme. We may assume the fashion style as a character sketch that has the capability of describing a personality out of the fashion themes. For example, if you have arty fashion type, then you may be drawn to the arty themes in apparel consciously. Or if you like chic fashion type, then you would be drawn to the chic theme.Let see the types of styles.

Chic:

Chic is often said to be synonymous with “fashionable” and “trendy”. It is one of the popular types of fashion styles. People who are in favor of this style prefer the stylish and classic styles that are smart and striking at the same time. For example, the accessories are always well chosen, the garments are well stitched, even the hairstyle is well maintained. In a nutshell, chic style includes the clothes that have strong colors but not garish.img-20161101-wa0041_11

STANDING OUT

Be the one to stand out in the crowd.i bet any time you dress and you  are stepping out,you got this feeling of standing out.I have this feeling any time i am doing anything i want to really stand out. We are all at a fair of sorts of things.Whether the marketplace or in your social circles, there are many others competing for time, for opportunity.But we all tend to blend in.Have you ever asked yourself how do YOU differentiate YOU?Most of us don’t think about a conscious plan for standing out.It often is tiny differences that make the big difference.Success often happens at the margin, being outstanding is good, but standing out is better, you being you.Being comfortable with who you are, having the confidence to be unique and the strength to let your individuality shine that standing out.

Standing out takes into consideration the aspect of one being themselves,the natural confidence in someone is the most outstanding factor. It is not  all a matter of dressing to impress other people its all a matter of dressing to impress yourself. You either have class or you don’t. It’s not determined by how you dress, your level of education or your social standing. It’s conveyed in how you carry yourself and treat others. Some folks go to great lengths to “prove” they make the grade. Ultimately, people with class are outstanding without trying too hard to stand out.rikena-3

COLOR COMBINATION

Sometimes finding the right color combinations can be really hard, especially if you are not aware of the colors.Colors reflect a certain personality. They also have several meanings, most of which are closely connected to each other. For example, blue stands for sky, heaven and water. It reflects freedom and peace, but it can also mean cold, protective, authoritative or technical. Red is the color of blood, it reflects courage, romance, but it also means hot, dynamic, vital, commanding or alert. All these symbolic connotations are perfectly visualized. A real treat for the eye (the eye has its claims too).combinations can be really hard, Especially if you are not aware of the colors on your outfit.

A new color combination can add innovation to a seemingly dull wardrobe and can completely transform a look from winter to summer, s to summer, and so on. Color theory is relevant to several aspects of style besides clothing as well.  For example, hair color, makeup choices, interior design, and more are all types of style and design that revolve around color choice.choosing the right colors in your day to day activities can make you or gain you away to stand out.https://thestylenote.files.wordpress.com/2013/03/screen-shot-2013-03-24-at-9-50-46-pm.png?w=820

Always combine colors the right way and you will be on the top of the game in fashion world.until next time my good people thanks for reading my blog.love love

BE YOUR OWN BOSS

Over the few years i have been in fashion industry,i have  learnt  to be dedicated and patient. Nothing comes easy and everything takes time. If you really find something you’re passionate about, go and do it. You really have nothing to lose when you try, but everything when you don’t.BE YOUR OWN BOSS and love what you do!!!!The effect of your clothing choices might be much more powerful than you think. Fair or not, people judge us by the way we look and that includes the way we dress. For example, women dressed in a masculine fashion are perceived as better managers. And people dressed more formally are perceived as more intelligent.Own up your dress code and You don’t have to be the first one in what you do, you just simply have to be good at it.It’s no news that your wardrobe says a lot about you.What you wear can inform passersby of your type of employment, as well as your ambitions, emotions and spending habits.And now it’s even launched a whole new type of psychology.Always know” HARD WORK BEATS TALENT WHEN TALENT DOESN’T  WORK HARD”

SKATER  LOVE

SKATER dresses are eye-catching waist clinching fit and flare dresses that ensures all eyes are on you.Whether you are opting for a Lace Dress or a Floral Dress these structured skirts create the perfect hourglass silhouette.Skater dresses are reminiscent of the babydoll dresses of the 90s and ice-dance costumes.The trend isn’t exactly new as it traces back to the 80s where the short dress derived its inspiration from the ice-dance costumes.And naturally, that was how it came to be called as the skater dress.The reason i love skater dress so much is that the cut of the dress is perfect for just about any body shapes. So it’s hard to hate something that’s amazing. If you’re apple-shaped, you can rock the trend. If you’re pear-shaped, you too can look good in the dress!

Bonus fashion point: Just make sure to get the right dress size for your body, nothing too loose or too tight. Pay close attention to how the waist of the dress falls onto your natural waistline.For those who are blessed with wider hips, the twirly skirt cut may accentuate the size of your posterior to the point that it may not be too flattering. So to avoid this, please give the dress a try and a twirl before purchasing.For hourglass-shaped gals, you’d be a fan for life as the skater dress will hug you gently around your curves making you look ultra feminine.Malaysian humid and hot weather makes wearing the skater dress on its own a very practical thing to do.

You can layer it up with a blazer or a cardigan when you’re in a chilly indoor setting, but for the most part, it’s best to keep it all at a minimum. Accessorize to your liking.

The short skater dress can also be worn as a tunic top, so pair it up with your favorite leggings or skinnies.

Skinny belts can be utilized to offer a little bit structure to your getup and give it a more polished look.

For an idea on how to wear the skater dress in style,LOOK AT MY  STYLE AND  SEE HOW I WORE THEM

PASSION,STYLE FUN

PASSION FOR FASHION.

I have never really considered myself a connoisseur of anything. I feel as though I am the very definition of a Jack of all trades. I dabble here and there between a variety of different subject areas but I can’t really claim any one particular as my own. However, there are a few things that I involve myself in more than others. In this short….essay?, I will weigh the pros and cons of what I might do in my PASSION,STYLE  AND FUN BLOG.My passion in fashion took me to opening a blog page that i never knew i would be able to manage.Fashion trends are difficult to follow these days and it’s widely believed that they primarily exist just to sell clothes. Some people believe that we shouldn’t follow them and that we should dress in what we like and feel comfortable in.I believe that you need to find what suits you and go for it.Dress your body according to your body shape.It’s widely believed in today’s materialistic world that the latest innovative fashion trends hold great significance. On the other hand, such trends are believed to be set only in the pursuit of profits for large designer companies. It seems that in recent times, people are now changing their minds in regards to wearing clothes for comfort and as a personal choice. Personally I agree that we should pay more attention to individuality and comfort in the way we dress.ALWAYS NOTE  THAT AN OUTFIT IS NEVER COMPLETE WITHOUT A SMILE!!!!IMG-20160803-WA0049IMG-20160803-WA0045IMG-20160803-WA0038I wore my flare pleated mid skirt with a green crop top to coordinate the colors.Made sure the shoe was nude not to break the combination.

LOVING WHAT YOU WEAR AND MAKING IT FUN.

No matter what you’ve read in the fashion magazines, there is no cookie-cutter approach to style. The fun thing about fashion (and the reason we’re so obsessed with clothes and shoes) is that literally anything goes — if it makes you look and feel good too.The first step to finding the right clothes to bring out your inner goddess, or rock star or CEO is to figure out your specific body type so that you can play up your best features.Determine and embrace your body type.Body shape is all about proportion, and fashion is all about dressing those proportions to look their very best. When you think about body types, don’t focus on height and weight… focus on shape. A slender gal can have the same body shape as a curvy gal, just as a short woman can have the same body shape as her taller friend. And it’s not about trying to look thin; it’s about accentuating your shape and enhancing what you have so you feel your best in every outfit you own.Each of us is unique — and our bodies are, too! Nevertheless, our body shapes are generally narrowed down to five general categories: pear, wedge, rectangle, apple and hourglass. You might fall into one category, or you might be a blend of two or more categories.Once you’ve determined your body shape, you can begin to consider which fashion trends to embrace and which to avoid. Spend some time in front of the mirror and do a fair and honest assessment of your body. Then put these fashion tips to work AND  HAVE FUN WHILE AT IT.EMBRACE YOURSELF AND ENJOY AND LOVE YOUR BODY SHAPE.IMG-20160803-WA0040IMG-20160803-WA0043IMG-20160803-WA0046IMG-20160804-WA0007Me putting an outfit together, is the most fun creative outlet of them all.Have fun in all you do that the secret.I love you all thanks for reading!!see you next time

TAKING CONTROL

IMG-20160530-WA0069[1]“It’s not that you should never love something so much that it can control you.
It’s that you need to love something that much so you can never be controlled.
It’s not a weakness.                                                                                                                               It’s your best strength.

The reason many people in our society are miserable, sick, and highly stressed is because of an unhealthy attachment to things they have no control over.So far the so many situations i have been into,  have taught me to be in control and run the show.Being in control of your life is the best thing that can ever happen to you.

 MY LOOK

Each outfit has its own way of popping out differently. You will look different in different outfits which in turn gives you a myriad of pesonas. The weather has been unfriendly but that does not mean you cant look your best on a cold afternooon on Kimathi Street. All you need is to take control of the  situation each day by how youjuggle your outfits.Here, Iam loving my skiny rugged jeans paired with a black crop top and an African half jacket that gave more style and edge to my outfit.Ooops, did you notice my stylish Zara scarf from STORE 66? Amazing!

Knowing what suits you where and when is every important.Style It’s about “what’s in here” (my sense of self, my identity, my perception of who I am).  The matching process is between what’s in here and how that is reflected and expressed in what I’m wearing.  Does my clothing ‘match’ my sense of who I am, at least for today?If you can answer this quetion the you know your STYLE.But to me i think it’s all about truly, truly knowing yourself, loving yourself – not just modifying, covering flaws, etc. – but loving yourself exactly the way you are right now – and dressing to honor that.And by that i have come to believe that fashion has the capacity to erode our self-esteem and confidence because by its very nature it assumes a gap between where you are and where you should be!

IMG-20160530-WA0042[1]Fashion is always shifting – even if something you’re wearing is deemed in fashion today, it likely won’t be very soon, possibly as early as tomorrow (and if not then, then next week or next month – whenever it is, it’s soon).But Style has a dynamic nature, too, but its dynamism has to do with the expression of who you are and your sense of self.  It’s about honouring your uniqueness and having your outsides match your insides,always taking control of what you wear and believing in yourself.LOve you all thanks for taking your humble time to read my blog.see you next time.KISSES.

My unconditional love for Jumpsuit has always left me wondering if i will ever stop being in love with them.Jumpsuit has always left me feeling super sexy, and ever comfortable.Live alone a superstar on the sport light!

IMG-20160607-WA0005[1]EVERYONE CAN FIT IN THEM.

The goodness of my loves is that they are not age limiting.But it depends with  the right fitting.Jumpsuits can really frustrate if worn wrongly.At the same time they can make you feel on the top of the world.Always put on a smile alongside your outfits its works magic.IMG-20160607-WA0009[1]

HOW YOU PAIR THE JUMPSUITS WILL FINISH THE LOOK

I paired my jumpsuit with black shoes because the jumpsuit already had a lot of details.But if its one colour you can add detail to your shoes or accessories.Jumpsuits can be worn in many stylish ways.The ones  with many details on them tend to be casual but jumpsuit with  one color  can paired  with a blazer to give it an official look.Thank you for reading my blog post see you on the next one.much much love.

The Comfortable,Flattering Maxi Skirt.

Whoa!..Nowadays the weather is so unpredictable. Yesterday its a little bit warmed up and yet today is super chilled. For the fashionistas like me, this is a tragedy in awaiting. The trick is how do I balance between super chilled and warmed weather occurring on the same day.

IMG-20160519-WA0000

Shifting Weather

You can be fooled to put on a bare top and then it suddenly starts raining in the morning even without ‘consultation’. Or carry an umbrella then the sun comes out smiling sheepishly..So how do you add or subtract a layer of clothing on your ‘originals’ without loosing your fashion sense.

IMG-20160519-WA0015

The Maxi Skirt has been specifically designed to save you from such dilemmas. The are the most flattering, comfortable and forgiving pieces of clothing you can ever put on.They are easier to add a layer over them and under them hence making it easier to balance in between the constantly shifting weather.

Combining

It is easier to wear a floral maxi skirt on a weekend with a basic T shirt hence giving you a sporty kind of look.You can also wear your maxi skirt with a crop top. Wear it higher on your waist so you show very little skin, or wear it lower to bare your stomach. Whatever you’re comfortable with then embrace it.

Body type

Maxi skirts are also worn depending with your body type.

Petite Maxi Skirts – Keep shapes small with little volumes. It has been designed in such a way that it draws the attention towards the hips and the waist.

I shape Maxi Skirts – They are made to create curves giving an African woman a chance to showcase what only ‘African Women’ can boast of while putting on International trends.

8 shape Maxi Skirts – have been made to highlight the waist when they have been belt up.

x shape Maxi Skirts – The one I am wearing now fits into this category. They are more voluminous and are meant to be worn by a fitting top.

H,O Maxi Skirts – They avoid exposing the waist and keep the lines clean no curvy edges. They are mostly used on official wears.

IMG-20160519-WA0013

Depending with how you match your maxi skirt whether floral or plain or even the body type, remember Maxi Skirts are perfect for this weather by the mere fact that they are easy to combine by either adding layers or removing.
