Guest Post| 10 Types of Dresses every Woman should own in her Wardrobe!

Guest Post| 10 Types of Dresses every Woman should own in her Wardrobe!



Every woman wants to flood their wardrobe with beautiful dresses so we usually collect all dresses that we like, don’t we?
But picture this, what if you own different kinds of dresses for various events and make yourself noticed by everyone wherever you go? Just keep reading below for finding your new exotic collections for this summer!


10 Best Dresses Every Women Should Own
To make your shopping easy, we have put together 10 stunning dresses that every woman should have in their wardrobe.

1) An A-line dress
An A-line dress is one of the loose fitting dresses which is narrow at the top and gently flares up to hemline. This is best on slim figures and hides a large lower body, accessorized with statement jewels for a more classic look with an attractive silhouette.


2) A maxi dress
If you want to wear a stylish and more sophisticated dress for a day in the city or to wear over your swimsuit then the best choice is the maxi dress, wear it with flat sandals or high heels and for an extraordinary look, you can buy a strapless striped maxi!


3) A Cocktail dress
If you want to shine like a star and to capture the attention of everyone, then you have to choose a colorful cocktail dress with a hemline just above the knees and it will give you gorgeous look even with simple accessories.




4) A Little Black Dress
Little black dress suits for every woman, but it’s important to choose the right one which fits perfectly, look for an LBD with an interesting sleeve, closed neck and with an embellished belt that makes it unique. Dress it down for the day time with a pair of statement earrings to enhance your look.


5) A shirt dress
A shirt dress is a plain casual dress which is totally different from ordinary shirts and the masculine cut brings out all your feminity and is suitable for college going girls. To add more attraction, wear it with a belt around your waist to enhance your figure.



6) A white T-shirt
Every woman is different, but all time favorite for everyone is a white shirt and with no doubt, you can wear it in nearly infinite ways and in multiple situations. My favorite style is simply wearing a black leather jacket over a T-shirt with a nice pair of jeans.



7) A Lace dress
This is another one of the luxurious dresses that everyone wants to have in their closet, while you wear a low lace wine dress you will feel even more feminine, perfect for parties or any social events. Pick something that enhances your body features and can be accessorized with pearl necklace.



8) A floor length dress
Put your boring dresses to rest! Wear a dashing floor length evening gown for evening parties or formal events. If you have a flat body, then choose an empire waist and also you can create a different vibe by just switching your accessories and it will never go out of date.


9) A red dress
Like black dress every woman should own a red dress which will make you stand out in the crowd, I assure that everyone will stare at you with excitement and I bet you will definitely get noticed by everyone. In order to increase your beauty, wear it with wedges and have a metal clutch with you.

10) A Sheath dress
Are you panic about what to wear for your business meetings or job interviews? Don’t worry and save yourself by investing in a sheath dress, great for any formal business events and doesn’t show too much skin, but don’t forget to use matte lipstick and to wear high heels.
Hope you are clear to buy your new summer collections and try to own at least few of the above dresses in your wardrobe.

Bonjour, Ola.....
Just kidding!

That is just about where my French and Spanish ends. I wish I could speak them fluently but languages are not really my thing! I speak two fluently, English and Krio from my home country of Sierra Leone - and that is all.

Something that is my thing however is the whole Bell Sleeve trend, which I am currently in love with!
It's all over Instagram in numerous styles and fabrics. To make thing's easier for all my bell sleeve lovers out there I have created the following lookbook, sharing some of my favourites.

There is tons of inspiration here to help you slay in bells. Be sure to share and comment. Outfit details will be tagged where possible, as well as the instagram pages of all who are featured.

Enjoy!

Chic and Effortless Style for the Long Summer Weekend!

Chic and Effortless Style for the Long Summer Weekend!


                                                     By Sophia Smith

We all know that stressful feeling at Monday morning when the work week is starting. As the days are passing, the pressure decreases and the expectancy of the end of the week increases. 
Finally, after a long, long work week comes the weekend you’ve been waiting for.
The weekend isn’t just the time when you can relax, hangout more with your friends and leave all your worries behind, it’s also an opportunity to drop your work outfit and give a chance to all those nice and casual clothing which languish in your wardrobe, to shine. This is the right time to show your individuality and creativity, but you shouldn’t try too hard or the carefree nature of the weekend can be pointless. After all, there’s nothing better than an outfit that’s comfortable and actually stylish, right?
Here are some advices to spark your imagination on how to choose the perfect outfit for those hot summer weekends.


Play with a Colours

Since you aren’t in office anymore, you don’t have to stick to a conventional choice of colours or monochromatic and reduced look. Your summer weekend outfit should be colourful and bright. White will look especially good on you if you’re already tanned. But, if you prefer floral dresses, in order to keep a casual look stick to models with clean lines and easy shapes.

Share the Vibe

Your clothes can communicate your inner spirit, so if you're feeling great why wouldn’t you share that mood with others? Regardless if it’s your friend, a cashier or just a passer-by, they will notice your expression and maybe it will have an effect on them.

For example, chose a t-shirt with some funny quote, picture or a pattern. Or simply, wear something with navy stripes or just plain black or red; it will remind everyone to the beach, and only a few things are more relaxing than a snapshot of the endless blue (except actually being there, of course).


Loosen up

Being casual is a crucial element in a simple, but effective summer look. Due to high temperatures it’s a good idea to prioritize natural fabrics, like cotton or linen. Try a loose dress, jumpsuit, short-sleeved or a button up blouse. Tip: if you are wearing a long shirt don’t button up all the way - leave the top three buttons loose.

Show Some Skin

One of the most effective and practical pieces of clothing, for an effortless and stylish look, is a short denim. It’s length and shade is up to you, but a lighter colour is more appropriate, especially for a daytime combination.  If you’re going to spend your weekend on a beach (lucky you!), a swimming pool or maybe at a cottage, having a barbecue, a bikini-top combined with shorts would be a great choice. Throw in a bohemian style kimono, and you’re ready to have some fun. While you at it don't forget to get a tan.

 Don’t Forget the Details

Even the simplest combination, like a t-shirt and a mini skirt, can be special if you add some accessories to it. Consider the boho style; it’s hyppie and romantic characteristics are perfect for achieving a chic look. Sunglasses are necessary to complete your outfit and a great way to add a subtle touch of your personal style to it.
image source

There are many different styles like: retro, pilot, cateye, the Lennon's style etc. You probably already know what shape is the most suitable for you.


Comfortable Way is the Best Way

Choose a footwear that goes along with your outfit, but try to avoid high heels. Flat shoes, like sneakers, ballerina flats or flat sandals are more comfortable and appropriate for any setting and a casual look. But if you can’t imagine yourself being so closed to the ground, pick platform sandals - they’ll look less serious than the ones with heels.
image source

Basically, when it comes to a summer weekend, everything is allowed. The most important thing is to feel comfortable with what you’re wearing and to keep it as simple as you can. After all, it’s your time to relax, so try to keep your worries and effort at the minimum and have some fun.

`Hey Friends,

Happy Fashion Forward Friday! - although i'm probably a little late (oops)

I am back with a new lookbook which some of you have been asking for. It is all about my favourite colour, Royal Blue.
Of course, I love my creams, nudes and beige's but there is something about royal blue that grasps my attention everytime, so for that reason, we are going to say it's my favourite colour!

Below are a few royal blue pieces I have spotted lately and love! Since we are all Kings and Queens, this is for the royal.


Enjoy,
XOXO
