Lace in Fashion

Le 30 juin 2016, 12:52 dans Humeurs 0

Lace is everywhere! We see it on jeans, t-shirts, dresses, and of course, wedding gowns. It is even being sewn on to boots, barrettes, and just about every other article of wearable art imaginable. Lace has been prominent in fashion since the 15th century, worn by British royalty. Today, lace has returned to runways everywhere in women’s formal wear.

When I think of lace, my thoughts immediately go to the legendary Jessica McClintock and her lovely lace Gunne Sax tops, skirts, dresses, and bridal collections. Throughout the formal and prom world, a major change is occurring. Country and vintage lace designs are less common, and instead we’re seeing more elegant and avant-garde silhouettes being used.

Some of my favorite lace prom gown creations are from the website : example, The Elegant Long Sleeves Mermaid Black Lace Evening/Prom Dress in black and nude boasts a zigzag cutout across the bust, full-length sleeves, and a stunningly frilled mermaid bottom. The entire dress is covered in a rich black lace and also features an interesting scalloped collar.

Although I miss wearing my lace Gunne Sax blouses with tight jeans and cowboy boots, seeing so much beautiful lace in so many unique places definitely softens the edge.

Chossing The Best Dress For Homecoming

Knee-Length Dresses. Long dresses are thought to be more formal and are often found at formal events like Prom. Homecoming is a more relaxed school event. A dress just above the knee would be perfect for homecoming.

Fall and Winter Colors. Homecoming is held during early to late autumn which means your color scheme from summer no longer applies. Dark colors, whites, ivories, metallic tones and black are perfect solid color choices for fall. A darker dress with a sheen or sparkle is a great choice.

Weather. Every student tries to hold on to summer’s short shorts and tank tops as long as they can but by the time homecoming rolls around it’s going to be too cold for that style of clothing. Remember to bring a trendy sweater or stylish jacket or both. There will be a place for you to keep them once you get indoors so don’t worry and stay warm. You may even choose a long sleeve dress style for the fall. It’s a classic look and can keep you warm in and outside.

Unique Twist. Add a bit of your own style into your outfit. The best part of dressing up and going to school dances is showing your personality and dancing the night away. So stand out by accessorizing to the max or adding that little extra unique oomph that sets you apart from the rest of the student body.

Of course, homecoming isn’t all about showing off your tan from summer or your brand new dress, it’s about having fun and reconnecting with friends, new and old. Choosing a dress that helps you stand out is only the first step to having a great homecoming. So get out there and dance with your friends and get the upperclassman really talking.


Prom Dresses for Hourglass Bodies

Le 24 juin 2016, 12:06 dans Humeurs 0

Finding the perfect prom dress for your body type can seem like a daunting task, but when you know which parts of your figure you want to honor, you’ll feel fabulous in anything. Ladies with an hourglass body type have balanced bodies, with a defined bust and hip section with a relatively small waist. They tend to look fabulous in almost anything, from steal-the-show slinky dresses to royal ball gowns. Unique Prom has a huge selection of prom dresses and styling tips for celebrating the best parts of your hourglass figure.

Must-Have Hourglass Body Type Prom Styles

•Mermaid silhouettes: Mermaid gowns or anything with a more form-fitting mid-section will highlight your slim waist and play to your curvy figure. AVOID: Anything baggy or shapeless. You don’t want your defined curves to get lost in a crowd.

•V-Neck tops: When you play up your bust, your slim waist becomes even more defined. Pick a medium V-neck neckline with straps if you have extra weight at the bust. AVOID: Scoop neck, high-neck or collared dresses. These will only hide your best features.

•Natural waistlines: A natural waist dress honors your shape by playing to your hyper proportionate figure. Pick a natural waist gown with a V-neck style for the perfect pairing. AVOID: Figureless sheath or maxi dresses that don’t cinch at the natural waist.

Accessorizing Your Hourglass Figure

In order to celebrate your picture-perfect waistline, belted waists are a great choice. You can pick a slim satin belt or glam up with something sparkly and sequined. If you decide you want your bust to be the focus, keep things minimal with an unadorned neckline and some sparkly, dangle earrings and a pretty prom clutch that matches your gown.
