Factors to Consider When Choosing Fashion and Style

Fashion and style have existed since the advent of clothing. In the past, designers showed off their designs on paper, making it possible for the people to place orders. This made it possible for people to choose a variety of styles and colors. High-fashion is believed to have started in London and Paris. For a long time now, fashion magazines from around the world send their personnel to London or Paris to find out the most recent trends. Furthermore, department stores send some of their workers to Paris to buy clothes. They would in turn duplicate the clothes with a little more flair. Having the right clothes can help boost your attitude. The factors to consider when choosing clothes include:

· Your personality

Many people like to wear clothes that are comfortable on them. They are happy to wear neat and nice clothing while other people seek to wear clothing that has designer labels. However, the most important thing is that fashion and personality go hand in hand. Therefore, it is important to wear clothes that enhance your personality. If you are less flashy and quiet, you may not be comfortable in stiletto heels and glittered clothes. Although they are different styles available in the market, it is important to find one that you are comfortable with because fashion is more than the latest trends but about looking good.

· Your body type

It is important to find the right kind of clothing for your body. Therefore, you may need to avoid clothing that is too short or too tight. This is particularly the case if you have a wider figure. Good clothes consider the fit. Tight tops that have breast pockets and short sleeves offer many distractions while high collars shorten the neck. Furthermore, shoes with straps often shorten the legs. A short necklace shortens the neck. When buying pants it is important to make sure they fit well. Small defects that are likely to go unnoticed in skirts are emphasized more in pants.

· Best body parts

Consider wearing clothes that emphasize your best body parts. This helps to create an illusion of well-fitting clothes. Thinning fabrics offer a more slimming effect. However, it is important to consider a camisole or tank with a see through blouse or top. Tops and bottoms that have one color make the wearer to look thinner, but you can be more creative by wearing different shades. If you have a large waist, you should avoid wearing belts. Furthermore, you need to wear your accessories carefully because too many of them can give the illusion of being bigger.

How to Keep Up With the Latest Fashions and Styles!

Are you stuck in a fashion rut? It happens to me once every three years. My problem is, that when I find a style I love, I want it to be fashionable forever.
Take bootleg trousers for example. I adored them. They made me look skinny, long legged and were suitable for work, shopping and clubs. Perfect!

What happened?

Skinny jeans happened and now jeggings.! (Jeggings are leggings styled to look like tight denim jeans.-just in case you’ve missed out on this particular fashion must have) Indeed my 15 year old cousin told me last week that he was wearing “meggings”. Apparently that’s the male version!

So how do you keep up with the latest fashions and styles?

Wardrobe workout!

Firstly I split my wardrobe into sections. “Classic Can Wear Forever” and “Was On-Trend At The Time,But Think I Need To Move On”. But stop, don’t throw those clothes in the bin just yet, keep them long enough and they will come back into fashion. A few years ago you wouldn’t have thought you’d ever be wearing shoulder pads would you?

So now there is space in your wardrobe, it’s time to update your style. Great, how do we start?

Personally I start with the fashion magazines and remember its not just clothes we are looking at, but hair, make up, nail varnish and a million and one different accessories.

I always plan for the season ahead, there is not much point in updating your summer wardrobe at the end of August. Prepare for Winter 2010. Have a good look at those magazines and get an idea of the colour trends, cuts and must have items. Circle the things that you like and start to build some outfits in your mind. Always bear in mind your shape, age and lifestyle. Restrictive ball gowns are not that great for doing the school run.

Have a fashioned themed party at home. Invite your friends and crack open a bottle of wine. Ask them to pick items they think you would look great in. Its sometimes interesting to find out how other people perceive you whilst remembering that your opinion is the most important.

Once you have got an idea of the outfits you want to create, its time to get down to money. Money talks. Set yourself a budget and stick with it. With all the high street competition available these days its easy to look on trend for less.

Be brave. Sometimes I dismiss the latest female fashion trends because they won’t suit me, but how do you really know if you never try them on. Set yourself a “try on” day and just keep trying different styles. You will be really surprised to see that clothes you would never normally dare to wear, can look super cool.

Once you have some staple outfits, accessorise, accessorise, accessorise.

Remember that you can also update older outfits with new accessories, scarves, gloves, headbands, handbags or shoes. Whilst on the subject of shoes, there is a simple fashion rule to remember, new season, new shape.

Now that your new wardrobe is finalised pick a new signature scent. Something to echo your new style, bohemian, youthful and whimsical or confident and powerful.

Fashion And Style: Wear Fashionable Yet Professional Looking Outfits

Fashion and style are two important things that we should always consider when wearing uniforms or any type of clothing. These uniforms don’t have to be boring and you don’t need to look like someone else. Often, nurses wear them while at work. But not only nurses wear them but also other medical professionals like surgeons and pediatricians. You can find a lot of options for such professional suits but instead of being plain with your picks, try to be fashionable. Hospitals and clinics need to set the right standards on how employees or staff should look like. But they don’t need to compromise fashion and style. How will a nurse work with ease if he is not even comfortable with his outfit? How will he entertain patients if he is less confident with himself? Dressing up can affect a person’s level of confidence and productivity. He won’t be able to perform well if he feels like he looks bad.

Naturally, you might think of the patients you deal with most of the time when you are getting suits or uniforms. Often, you will be using different uniforms. You might have 3 to 4 options, depending on the hospital or clinic you are working in. Other hospitals allow you to choose your own uniform or even your own design. But you should not forget that you will be working with people who have problems with their health. You cannot move properly if you are only concerned with what you wear. Ask first before you make any decision. Avoid getting uniforms that aren’t fit to the nature of your work.

To make sure that you are always in fashion and style, try embroidered, fitted tops. These are fashionably looking yet you would still look like a professional. If you can’t find any, make your own. Fitted garments don’t completely look the same as ordinary uniforms because of the embroidery. They look hip and nice. You can even wear them if you like to relax a bit at the mall after work. Make sure you choose attractive designs and colors. Wear the finest suits for work and be able to comply with the dress code.

Both fashion and style are important, but you should not forget comfort. Yes, you may look like you are not wearing a hospital uniform but you feel really uncomfortable. Thus, you fail to work effectively and efficiently. If you want to be always in style, get a wrap tunic top. It looks like a casual clothing so it can fit in better with the other clothes that you usually buy. On the other hand, the split neck style is cute too. Designs are not difficult to get by so you can choose something simple or something a little sophisticated. With the split neck style, you’ll be able to bring your fashion sense over into work.

The options for fashionable yet professional-looking suits or uniforms are endless. Do not think that you can’t find or wear something that you really love. There is no issue if you dress in accordance with your profession. But make sure that you look like a doctor or nurse, not an ordinary person.
