Wide-leg pants: women's fashion trend

Monday, 8 August 2011

There are three key styles of wide leg pants on trend in spring 2011:

Wide-leg trousers
Sophisticated yet relaxed, sharp and tailored with a mid to high waist: that's how 2011's wide-leg trouser distinguishes itself. Perfect for masculine-inspired looks, be they very modern or very vintage.

Wide-leg jeans
Jeans that are wide-legged from top of the thigh down can have a tendency to end up looking baggy. In 2011, we'd recommend jeans that are more fitted on the thigh - lean to flared legs or moderately wide legs rather than wide legged jean styles that are too baggy or that lack shape. Be wary of a skinny leg that then widens from the knee, however: that's too much like the 90's take on bell bottoms, a look firmly out in 2011.

With heels. Flats will simply never complete the look as well as heels will; the exception is if you're carrying off a very masculine look with man-style flats.
With a slim-fitting top to balance out the volume on the bottom half. A soft, billowing blouse can also work well but is best broken up with a waist-cinching belt.
With utter 70s glamour: wide-leg trouser, platforms and a big floppy hat.
Female dandy style - look to vintage icons like Katharine Hepburn and Marlene Dietrich for inspiration.
With 40s pin-up girl flair, by pairing some wide-legged sailor pants with nautical stripes and espadrilles.
A final, mandatory note about wide-legs, be they jeans, trousers or a draping palazzo: all of these styles work best of taller frames. If you're short in the legs try a pair of skinny cropped pants or ones with a subtle flare paired with heels.

Winter Blues:

With the recent bout of awful weather we’ve seen across the US, it seems the “winter blues” are starting to set in just about everywhere. (Yup, you’re not the only one who let out a triumphant yell when the groundhog didn’t see his shadow yesterday. 6 more weeks of winter? No thanks!)
But while “the winter blues” may not be a medical term, the phenomenon is very real: Seasonal Affective Disorder, or SAD, is the scourge of citizens from the freezing-cold Pacific Northwest to the foggy East coast during these dreary winter months. Extended periods of time without sunshine and warmth can make you feel depressed, fatigued, and irritable. The symptoms of SAD are both psychological and physiological; your mind and body are affected by dragging winter weather.
While the obvious solutions seem to include relocating to a warmer climate or spending a vacation in paradise, let’s face it: Most of us don’t have the financial flexibility to jet off to an island whenever we want. So instead, here are a few easy, budget-friendly ways to banish your winter blues and stay cheery, despite the chilly weather.

Coats and jackets aren’t just for keeping warm – in fashion, they’re one of the easiest ways to show off your style in the colder months.

This fall, there are many trends when it comes to jackets, coats, and outerwear. I’ve broken them down into the top ten most popular and most stylish.

If you’re currently looking for the perfect coat, or just want to know what the current outerwear trends are, keep reading to find out what to look for in a jacket or coat this winter.

Plaid Jackets

Plaid is the number one trend in outerwear for the second year in a row, not to mention a hot trend for fall in general.

There are so many styles of plaid jackets to choose from, so if you love the preppy print, it’s easy to find a shape that works for you. Different colors and styles of plaids also make things more interesting – from purple to classic red and everything in between! When you’re shopping, make sure to find a shade that goes with most of you wardrobe.

Here are some cute plaid jackets, all under one hundred 

Faux Leather Jackets

In my animal-loving opinion, real leather jackets aren’t nearly as amazing as faux, and what’s even better: faux leather is WAY easier on your wallet. Plus, faux leather moto jackets are one of the popular jacket trends for fall 2008. What’s not to love?

If you must have the real thing, there are tons of real leather jackets around. But I encourage you – save some money and some animals by going faux! Every little bit counts.

Channel your inner badass rocker chick with one of these cute and affordable faux leather jackets:

Classic Trench Coats

This is one coat that will always be in style. That makes it a fabulous “investment piece”, an item in your wardrobe that you can wear over and over without worrying whether it’s in.

Trench coats are just as great in rural areas as they are for the city. They really do work with almost everything, everywhere. Go classic with a trench in a neutral tone or black, or take a chance and pick one up in a bright red. The choice is yours!

Some cute trench coats I thought were fabulous:

lassic Pea Coats

This one is another example of an “investment piece” – it’ll always be in style, and goes with most everything.

If you don’t have a pea coat in your wardrobe, you should consider picking one up. They really are one of the most classically chic pieces you can have. A pea coat will go from your 9 AM math class to your 9 PM date without missing a beat – and it’ll keep you nice and warm in the process.

Here are some pea coats I would definitely rock:

Finger Trips

All women love fashion, all these catwalk styles are just gorgeous, but most of them we can’t wear daily. And all these luxury accessories are really amazing, but we can’t afford them and they might be too much for daily wear too. So why shouldn’t we try something different, not luxury fashion designer pieces, but interestingly weirdly designed gadgets. Check out these fun Architecture Rings.
How close can you be to Paris, New York and Moscow? When came into the same question, my answer may seem quite surprising: one finger‘s distance only. Look at these Architecture Rings designed by Philipe Tournaire, each of them features a famous project around the world and therefore to make you part of Paris, New York and Moscow, too. Yeah, that feels good.
They of course wouldn’t be as stunning as a Tiffany ring, but they do have a different sense that worth a second look. Having these little constructions on your fingers is quite a funny thing, and I hope you enjoy the “finger trips”.

Valentine's Day Hairstyles Ideas

Boost the sexiness of your tresses on Valentine's Day if you want to receive all the admiration and love from your beloved as hairstyles can completely change your appearance. V-day is definite a special day so treat it as you should and you will look and feel amazing!
Valentine's Day is just around the corner and this day requires you to look extra-special. V-Day is a day which celebrates love, so it is a special day in which you and your beloved can use to remember all the things that you love about each other. So, such a romantic moment requires a proper Valentine's Day makeup, outfit as well as hairstyle. If you want to look absolutely breathtaking on February 14th, inspire yourself from the following Valentine's Day hairstyles ideas.
Hairstyles play a very important role when it comes to beauty and style so paying as much attention to your hair as you can, if you care about the way you look and how others perceive you, is a must. There are a variety of hairstyles available to choose from but that doesn't mean that they all suit this special occasion. Valentine's Day is a day in which you have to shine, so you can show your loved one that you are worth all his pampering, that you are beautiful on the inside as well as on the outside.

Depending on the length of your hair there are several options you can make in selecting a Valentine's Day appropriate hairstyle. Women with short hairstyles can smile as they don't have to spend too much time in the mirror but then again the downside to that is that there are not too many options you have when styling the hair. So, if you have short hair the best way to go is sleek straight. This hair texture helps underline the cut and emphasizes the shine of the hair, allowing it to receive a sexy glow that will enhance your beauty. If you love hair accessories don't hesitate to opt for a lovely jeweled or feathery headband as they are absolutely stunning and work well with all hair lengths.

Women with medium length tresses have multiple options depending on what look suits your style best. Sleek straight, wavy as well as curly hairstyles are a positive options but only if the hair is in a healthy condition. Allow the hair to fall naturally loose or boost the style of your tresses by opting towards stylish hair accessories such as cute hair clips or headbands. Enhance your natural hair texture or opt for a different hair texture using the proper hair styling tools and products. Hair curlers, hair wavers as well as flat irons can help your hair look absolutely amazing, so make sure you use them according to the instructions manual.

This is the trendies hair length in 2011 and if you're looking for a lovely Valentine's Day hairstyle you can consider yourself the luckiest as this hair length is the most versatile and there are a variety of options you can turn towards. Natural looking hair styles are definitely a great options but because your hair features such a long length you can give braids a try, hair twists as well as updos and ponytail hairstyles. You don't want to go too sophisticated unless you are going to a special event which requires such a look. 
Opt for lovely fishtail braids, high centered ponytails, a braided ponytail, a lovely loose updo or a glam hair twist. 
Experiment or simply go for the hairstyle that you think would suit you best as either way you will look stunning.

Short Hair Style Ideas

If you're not just a pretty face and wish to showcase your style-conscious attitude try these chic short hair style ideas that would take your hair sculpting skills to the next level. Opt for the girly and super-refined designs for a classy and feminine look. Whereas the messy and more relaxed design will serve as the best accessories to complement your casual or Boho chic appearance.
