Latest Fashion Trends 2011 | Street Fashion – Boho-chic look and fancy Handbags!

Since past many years Celebrity fashion has been the core of Fashion Industry, right from what they wear to what they eat… Everything becomes a craze for the youth who follows it meticulously. Be It Britney or Lady Gaga.. COPY THEM is the hype for the people who want to stay Stylish..Is that fashion is all about? Lets find out…

Yesterday I was traveling in the most famous Mumbai Local (for those who didnt catch that, mumbai local is the local train plying across the vast city of Mumbai with tons and tons of common public commuting from one corner of the city to other..if you actually see them packed together in the peak hours of local you wont be able to make out one person from other… it is such a scenario) Well Mumbaikars are born to adapt that though… Coming to the point, I could make out various style statements (Individual Style Icons) of these Common Gals who could be hardly called Common.And Mind It, none of it seemed copied or similar.. Each one had her own sense of Style and carried it Elegantly with great confidence.. This made me rethink my earlier statement.. Fashion is not just a Celebrity Fashion.. Fashion is what inside us,, each one of us has his/her own creativity to look their best…NOT Forgetting that “ITS NOT TRENDS THAT MAKES US, ITS WE WHO MAKE TRENDS”… And I decided to put up their Style Statements on my Blog…So here we GO!

Today’s Mumbai Mirror gives tips on wearing Skirts – catch the article at Fashionmate

The mumbai Mirror todays edition has an article with tips on wearing skirts… taglined “Skirting issues”. In case you havent got a chance to look at it. Fashionmate offers you with the full article below:

“With the monsoons making an early appearance, full length trousers and jeans are a cumbersome option for dressing as you make your way through muggy puddles and grimy streets.

Try on an assortment of skirts and dresses depending on your body type to sail through the season with girlie finesse. Here’s a quick guide to the cut and flare that suits your body beautiful.

 ► Pear shaped mayhem

While it’s never small enough, for some, thunder thighs and heavy bottoms are a genuine problem and not just irrational fears of the narcissistic. Skirts and dresses are in fact, a great way to veer the eye away from the rear.

♦ Dark colours work best for a slimming look. Black is your friend but don’t be afraid of colours. Bold bright prints and hues work great when paired with a neutral coloured blouse.

♦ Fit and flare A-Line skirts that hold the narrow waist and flare out from the hip balance the proportions of the body and get it in sync with the narrowness of your shoulder frame.

♦ For those measuring 5 feet or under, keep the length at knee level, shorter, or go full length. This will show off your slender legs or hide them completely and give your body an illusion of length. Skirts that end mid-calf break the flow of a glance and make you look shorter. Taller women have the liberty of having a free hand with the length.

♦ Skirts with flare or dresses that fit well at the torso and flare out from the waist accentuate the narrow parts of the body and are a great way to camouflage the wide hip area.

♦ Those with a heavier behind should steer clear of very short skirts. It accentuates the width of the hip attracting attention to your problem area.

 ► Pint-sized petite

Blessed with a slender frame, proportionate assets and a flat stomach, the petite are often the most envied lot. Their genes do give them an upper hand when it comes to finding the right fit.

♦ Most colours work well for a slender frame bright colours, pastels, richer hues. But steer clear of very dark colours or black unless you wany to look anorexic and gaunt.

♦ Flaunt the narrow waist and hips with short skirts in denim or cotton. These work wonders for both tall and short women. Team it up with a tee and flip-flops for the classic casual look.

♦ Figure hugging dresses and pencil skirts that hug the body until just above the knee also look great.

♦ Add a little flounce with balloon skirts and flaring dresses or skirts for a more formal occasion. Pair them with a smart fitting blouse to complete the look.

 ► Big boned 

While proportion isn’t a problem here, an over-all bigger frame does make it difficult for the body to take on a delicate look. But there are a few styles that can help tone it down and do wonders for you.

♦ Semi-fitted clothes are your best bet. Nothing too tight and no need to hide behind oversized flowing clothes. A simple semi-fitted top with an A line skirt with a little more flare that ends around the knee works great.

♦ For a formal dress, keep it from hugging your body but don’t hide behind folds and cowls. Dark colours will aid in the slimming effect and the flare helps hide bulge.

♦ For a more formal look, teem the semi-fit with a belt and scrunch up the waist or under-bust to highlight the narrowest part of your body while still managing to hide the tummy and thigh problem areas.

♦ Feel free to use height as an advantage and wear knee level skirts with heels but if heavy thighs or wide hips are a problem, avoid the hem lines from receding any further.

 ► Top heavy

Being top heavy does pose a substantial problem for those looking for a fitted look.

♦ Cloak your upper torso in something loose fitting and light. The heavier the fabric and print, the more attention it’ll attract.

♦ Complement this with a well-fitting A-line skirt to balance out the body ratio. Slim-fitting pleated skirts will also highlight your slim waist, narrow hips and legs while taking attention away from the bust.

♦ Avoid tops with padded shouldered tops, deep necks or wide boat necks.”
