2. Dressing up
A plain shift dress is fabulous as they are so easy (and fun!) to dress up. Black of course is a timeless classic and will frame your physique perfectly and leave you feeling amazing. If you’re looking for a little black dress but don’t want to show too much skin, the shift is the way to do it – it is classy with a hint of sexy, subtle yet beautiful. You can create a rock chick, glam look by teaming it with a leather jacket and some gothic-style jewellery. The amount of styles you can create really are limitless – that is the beauty of the shift dress: it is elegantly simple so you can always create an outfit that represents you and is unique.

3. Summer Time Plus Points
This year’s shift dress is the perfect choice for summer, especially to wear to the office as it keeps you cool whilst maintaining a professional look. For a more feminine, summer-time look to brighten up your day, choose a pink or peach design. These colours are on trend this season so you’ll find plenty of accessories to match or contrast. For a striking, eye-catching look, choose a patterned style of shift dress. Team with a pair of simple court shoes or pick brilliant bright colours if you want a super bold look that will get you noticed.

Would You Wear Fashion Wigs?

Chiquel Fashion Wigs

In the 1960s, wigs were one of the most important fashion accessories a girl could have (in those times, particularly if they were big, sexy and volumous, as was the trend back then). Wigs were wardrobe staples of every woman, young and old, and they wore them with pride wherever they went.

Something happened in the 70s, 80s & 90s, where the numbers of females choosing to wear wigs as a fashion accessory, sharply declined. Wigs became synonymous with old ladies and people suffering from hair loss; less glamor, and more of a medical aid. Along with the wig-enthusiasts, the number of wig boutiques slowly declined, as wigs became a fashion staple of Halloween or dress up parties as opposed to fashionable events.

Fast forward a few decades, and 2013 appears to be the year of the fashion wig comeback. They are beginning to appear in the wardrobes of not only celebrities and fashionistas, but also every-day women. The modern girl has realized the convenience and artistic flexibility that comes with being able to create a fabulous hair style, or change of tress color, in under 10 minutes.

The New York Times even wrote a piece on how wigs have become a women’s best friend. They made mention of the fact that in today’s world where women have to juggle careers as well as family life, and look good doing it, that wigs are the most convenient way to ensure you constantly have good hair days. Another fabulous thing about wigs, is that you can be as adventurous with your color and style as you want without making that major commitment of actually chopping all your hair off or dying it bright red on a whim.

The comeback of the wig as a fashion trend probably has something to do with the fact that the quality and look of wigs are now better and more natural than ever. With a variety of wig types such as synthetic or human hair, monofilament and lacefront, or even customizable wigs, people won’t even know you’re wearing one!

Celebrities With Wigs

Celebrities such as Beyonce, Tyra Banks, Britney Spears, Katy Perry and Niki Minaj are all devotees of the fashion wig. Having said that, there are many out there on the market which are affordable, so you don’t need to have the bank account of a celeb to be able to buy one! Thanks to the world wide web, they are even available to buy online. I came across a great online wig retailer, Chiquel, so next time I’m feeling the need to change my look dramatically, I may just be sporting a new do!

When I hear the word “Resort Fashion”, my mind would zoom in to tropical feeling — floral fashion, chilled, relaxed and somewhat semi-casual. But that’s definitely not the case when it comes to Oscar de la Renta’s Resort 2014. What you find here is heavy embellishments, gorgeous moderation and couture! The reason why I love this particular collection so much is the fact that you get pretty much everything — from silky feeling to detailed ornamentation, from peplums to mermaids! They are so gorgeous it’s not only show to me, it’s a fashion art packed into one amazing presentation.

So, I took the liberty to choose some of the snaps that I love and you’ll see what I mean when I said “everything is covered”

1. The Pinkies.

I’m a heavy pink fan and I’m totally head over heels for these. Not to mention the jewelry also compliment the glamorous look divinely. PS: love those belts!

2. The Blacks.

If you love  the pink, then you’re gonna love the black as well. Especially if you’re a big fan of lace and flowers. They’re just so dreamy and you won’t be able to look or think of little black dress the same way again!

3. The Plaids.

Hang all those boring office wardrobe you have and make room for these fashionable plaids because you will want to wear them every day! Whether you’re a skirt or pants kinda girl, you have to admit that this playful plaid is simply too elegant to be ignored! I personally can’t take my eyes on the first dress!

4. The Dresses.

Getting heavily dressed can be fun once in a while, especially when they look like that! That, of course if you don’t mind the strong embellishments and the figure-flattering features.
