Essential Tips to Keep Up With Fashion Trends

Fashion is all about renovating. Trends evolve in ways that often leave fashionistas wondering if they’ll ever make it to the endless cycle of dressing to keep up with the times, and appropriately.

If you are a style enthusiast who wants to be updated with the latest, you do not want to be caught wearing accessories that were a hit in the 90s.

Are you one of the many average men and women who neither have access to the best finds nor work in the fashion industry (but hoping to)? Here are some ideas that may help you choose the best outfit and be in style, any season of the year:

Read, watch, familiarize.

It’s essential that you know first-hand how to spot the trendiest. Simply looking at what the stores offer does help, but you obtain better information by reading fashion magazines, visiting blogs and watching television shows that focus on the up-to-the-minute news on what’s chic and what’s not. If you can, visit fashion shows and galleries showcasing the best the industry has to offer.

Go by the “Mix and match” rule of thumb.

If you are like most people, you want to get a bit creative and not simply be a “fashion slave”. If a great designer top that has just been out catches your fancy, get it and match it with your basic pair of jeans. Match it with accessories that highlight your getup. When doing this, make sure you neither underdress nor go over the top. Dress your age too.

Got clothing that has gone “out of style”? Don’t throw them away.

To reiterate, style evolves. You may notice that even couture pieces have striking resemblance to the former hot stuff in the fashion market. If you are clearing out your closet and getting rid of unwanted clothes to make room for up-to-date clothing, make sure you keep some. The popularity of skinny jeans, for example, periodically come and go. Your pair of basic jeans need not be thrown away, either.

Get inspiration from the pros.

You just can’t help but notice how some people simply carry themselves with such sophistication or glamor. No matter how you want to simply be yourself, it helps to have people in the fashion industry to look up to. Models and celebrities are your best source for knowing what’s hot and what’s not. Look at what they are wearing and determine what may look good on you.


How to Dress Like a Classy Cougar Woman

If you are a cougar woman you may want to dress in a certain way to attract younger men. There is a common misconception that all cougar women should go for the mutton dressed as lamb look, flashing all of their flesh, squeezing their breasts together and plastering make up all over their face, to create a look that could rival even the most outrageous make up counter girls.

The fact is that young guys will prefer it if you dress your age – sexy, but sophisticated. After all they would be with a younger girl if they wanted to. Sure you can show off your best assets, but not all at once and only if you have the figure for it. So here are some tips to help you dress seductively, whilst remaining one classy cougar.

1. Wear natural make up – It is a good thing to use make up to enhance what you already have, but keep it natural. Piling on tons of brightly colored make up will only make you look like a transvestite.

2. Show ONE sexy area – The kind of cougar women that guys are more likely to laugh at than hook up with are the ones flashing the most skin. I know you are probably fit and gorgeous, but this is a rule even young women should stick to. Flash either your legs, cleavage, back or midriff and to be honest ladies, unless you’re on the beach try to avoid the midriff. Do not show all these bits off at once, or you will look like a tramp. Show off a bit of flesh to get the cub’s attention, but leave the rest to the imagination.

3. Draw attention to that sexy area – Once you have decided which bit to show off (the best bit obviously) subtly draw attention to it. A pretty necklace will draw the eyes to your chest, a good fake tan (not orange!) can show off long legs and a sexy back.

4. Choose colors that work with your skin tone – Stand in front of the mirror and try on a few different colored clothes. You will soon see which colors make you look healthy and glowing and which make you look a bit ill.

5. Wear sexy underwear – Sure your chosen cub won’t see it (unless you want him to), but sexy undies, ideally with a bit of support or a boost, will make you feel more confident and just as gorgeous as all those young things at the bar.

6. Wear high heels – A fantastic pair of shoes will make you stand tall and feel more confident and sexy, plus they will make your bum look great and so much tighter. What a great excuse to go shopping!

7. Smile! – Wearing a smile is the most important accessory for any classy cougar. Not only will you feel better when you smile, but guys will see you as more approachable. A smile shows a woman who likes to have fun and doesn’t take herself too seriously.
