Odd platform design

Folly or not – this latest platform from Prada is actually a merry mix of a sneaker, sandal, and oxford. Such an unusual combination, don’t you think? Despite its quirkiness, there’s nothing to laugh about when it comes to its price. You will have to shell out a whooping 727 dollars for the standard Prada platform.

Tips on How to Wear Prada Platform

1. Since Prada platform has been inspired by the Japanese clogs or platform known as Geta, wear them according to how you will wear any other type or style of platform.

2. Platforms are ideal to be worn by those on the heavy side, as they tend to make the legs look slimmer. Women with slender bodies must avoid Prada platform.

3. The shoes are capable of making you look much taller. However, make sure that you get a platform with the height that you can handle. This way, it will turn out to be convenient footwear while you look avant-garde at the same time.

Why wear this platform?

Many argue about the usability of the platform because of its aesthetics (or the lack of it). However, admirers are firm about the presence of unique beauty in the shoe and so it deserves to be included in any discerning woman’s wardrobe.

Not a few fashion experts retort that Prada created such outlandish footwear because women have become weary about putting on sickening (and potentially foot-damaging) high heels. For them, it’s time to make a change, and this is via Prada. As a famous fashionista countered – no matter how ugly the Prada platform might be, it is highly wearable because of the fact that it is Prada.

Latest trend in lipstick

As the season ends, there is another trend that is making its presence felt. Women are fascinated and enthralled by it, easily deciding that this is a hot trend that they must follow. And this is the two colors of lipstick on the lips at the same time.

Two colors – simultaneously

You have worn red-colored lipstick and perhaps even an orange one – but definitely not together at the same time. Well, it’s time that you try both of them on your lips simultaneously, as this is a trend that has emerged and seen in models in fashion shows, the latest being at the London Fashion Week.

What’s the reaction from fashion pundits and the general public? Shocked, but in a good way. In other words, they found the trend to be both bold and chic.

Tips on how to wear

1. A good way of wearing two colors of lipstick at the same time is by applying different colors on bottom and top lips. You can apply pink lipstick on top and red one on the bottom. The 2009 Ungaro fashion show had already featured this look, and it enjoyed raves from everyone.

2. Still, another great way is by wearing one lipstick color in the center and another hue at the edges of the lips. This is exactly what happened at the Holly Fulton fashion show, where the models were made to don two-color lipstick- red in the middle and pink at the ends of the lips.

3. You can try to minimize the shock effect by toning down on the lipstick at the edges and emphasizing more on the one at the center.

Where to flaunt this radical, two toned lipstick look? They are perfect for social events or happenings that involve your girl friends, such as fun bachelorette parties. It is such a cool and edgy look, actually. Who know? As unusual beauty trends become the norm, we might as well expect a multiple or rainbow-colored lips next time.

Print clothing – once is enough

Prints make a bold statement. Hence, be reminded not to overdo the wearing of prints unless you want to look like a fashion disaster. For instance, if you wear a leopard print blouse, this is enough print in your ensemble. Make everything else simple to complement it perfectly. For an animal print top, match this with simple shorts. Cap off with minimal or even no accessory.

Minimize Accessories

It must be known that prints in dresses are loud – they catch people’s attention. If you love that the focus is on you, printed dress will do the trick. However, you must be minimal with accessories. The best accessories are small simple items – whether the print on your dress is small-sized, or bold and blaring ones.

Large-sized women must go for small prints

This has been a universal rule ever since; if you have a wide body, go for small-sized prints as they will make you appear smaller. On the other hand, large bold prints will make you look wider; and so, this is the best prints for women that have skinny frames. If you’re petite and thin, take advantage of big prints to achieve the illusion of a fuller body.

Choose prints on proper cut and styled dresses

When wearing animal prints, avoid cuts that reveal much of your body. Likewise, shun from printed dresses that are ill-fitting. Pick one that’s knee-length and properly fits you; this will offer a simple yet fashionable statement.

Finally, when wearing printed clothes, you must avoid loose or baggy ones as they will make you bigger than you really are. The right print dress, when worn properly, can help you to flaunt your curves. Go for ones that fit you perfectly as well.

An accessory that’s easy to wear is the everyday scarf. It takes a little time and effort if you decide that you want to use it as a fashion piece to enhance your look in a big way. Depending on the current season or fashion style trend, you might want to wear one from the numerous scarf options available.

fashion scarf tips

Here are simple effective tips that you can use to make the most of your scarf:

1. Scarves are aplenty in terms of style, design, and fabric. When choosing one, consider factors such as the event where you will use it and the function that you need the scarf to serve. For instance, in a really cold day, you might want to wear one that’s longer than usual to ensure full comfort while outdoors.

2. Indeed, a scarf can also be worn during the warm season. Just remember not to choose from your many scarves that you traditionally use during the winter season. If you decide to don a scarf during spring or summer, you must choose one that’s made of very light cloth. White, yellow, or any other bright hue is the perfect color of a summer-worn scarf.

3. Scarves are a great way of accessorizing even the simplest attire. You are sure to light up as you wear a neon green, printed scarf together with your white shirt or blouse and pair of jeans.

4. If it’s a windy day, wrap this accessory around your neck several times. It’s a great way to get protection from the harsh elements. However, if the sun is out and shining, just have a short and lightweight scarf hang on your neck. Don’t tie or wrap it around to feel refreshed and cool all day.

5. A great style would be to use a long scarf and wrap it around the neck just once. Then, instead of wrapping it close onto the neck, pull down the loop so that it forms a draped circle. Try doing an infinity scarf to achieve a similarly stylish look.

Indeed, scarves are great fashion accessories. Just be conscious about the latest fashion style trend; since from such trend, you will base your choice of scarf and method of wearing it on a particular occasion.
