3 Pro Tips to Master Your Holiday-Season Fashion

The holiday season is in full swing, which means you’ll need the perfect outfit for the endless number of occasions on your calendar. From holiday work parties to get-togethers with family and friends, you’ll be diving deep in your wardrobe if you want to avoid wearing the same outfits over and over again during the next few weeks.

To keep your style fresh and your outfits chic, here are three pro tips to help you master your holiday season fashion.

1. Invest in Quality Outerwear

Unless you’re lucky enough to live in a region with warm winter weather, you’ll likely be bundling up every time you go outside this holiday season. This means the cute outfit you spent hours putting together will inevitably be covered up by your bulky coat. If you’re headed to a party, this isn’t a big deal, as you’ll likely shed it as soon as you make your entrance.

But if you have an outdoor date to see Christmas lights or are going out for dinner and drinks and need to be able to get from one place to the next without freezing, you might be wearing that coat a bit longer. In that case, it becomes just as much a part of your holiday outfit as your dress or favorite skinnies.

To keep your coat from ruining your holiday look, invest in some quality outerwear. A black wool coat or sleek khaki trench will help keep you looking winter chic without sacrificing warmth. Plus, these styles are classic enough that you won’t need to worry about them going out of style from one season to the next. 

If you live in an area that experiences below freezing temperatures this time of year, a warm, puffy down-filled coat is another good choice. Indeed, it will provide you with a little extra warmth, as well as help you stay trendy this holiday season.

2. Dress Up Your Year-Round Staples

The holiday season and all its parties, glitz and glamour lasts less than three weeks from start to finish, give or take a week if you start celebrating before Thanksgiving. But if you’re buying new holiday outfits every year, only to stop wearing them after Christmas, you’re wasting your shopping budget on items that are useless for more than 11 months of the year.

Rather than starting from scratch for your holiday outfits, look in your closet for items you can dress up for your next party or date. For instance, your favorite little black dress can easily become holiday ready with the addition of a colorful scarf, glittery jewelry or a pair of red or green tights. By only buying a few accessories, you can save your shopping budget for items you can enjoy year round, like a new little black dress.

3. Layer on an Oversized Sweater

While you’re shopping for something new, sweaters are another good choice. The right one can be dressed up or down, and you’ll no doubt stay warm all season. When in doubt, layering an oversized sweater over a dress, skirt or leggings is an easy way to look chic and stay warm this holiday season. Whether it’s tossed over a fitted black dress or a flowy midi skirt, the result is effortless polish. Big, bulky sweaters of all shapes, colors and textures are in right now, so go with what you like. 

Mastering Your Holiday Style

Whether you’re prepping for a holiday party or a low-key Christmas with family, these pro tips can help you look chic and stylish all season long!

She’s so cute and fun, just really down to earth and having David be part of the music video was really the icing on the cake.”

WES PERIOD – NU SHOES

West Coast rapper/alt-pop artist Wes Period returns today with a new song “NU SHOES”, along with an accompanying video shot by Logan Meis (Trippie Red, NLE Choppa, Lil Tecca). “NU SHOES” is the third release this year from the Orange County-born and bred artist-songwriter-producer, following, “Beautifully Broken,” and “My Benz”, which was released in September and whose video has over 600,000 views. A full-length album will follow in 2020. Check out the video for “NU SHOES” HERE.

In 2017, Wes caught the attention of GRAMMY-nominated songwriter Justin Tranter (Imagine Dragons, Yungblud, Camila Cabello) who saw a video of Wes performing at a pizza shop. Justin quickly signed Wes to his label Facet Records. Last year, Wes toured arenas across North America in support of Kesha and Macklemore, and released his debut album Pretty Words on Facet Records / Interscope Records.

You don’t need the wealth of Goldfinger to achieve the style of James Bond 

When it comes to style icons from the movies, it is safe to say that women have a wider choice of influencers than men. Holly Golightly in Breakfast at Tiffany’s, Miranda Priestley and Andrea Sachs in The Devil Wears Prada, Carrie Bradshaw in Sex in the City, the list goes on and on. For the guys, however, the face might change, but there’s only one name worth mentioning as a true style icon. Bond. James Bond. 

Bond is back – again

When Ian Fleming first created the character of James Bond, he was a somewhat one-dimensional character with no backstory at all until the later novels. But over the course of almost 60 years, we have come to know him through those who portrayed him on the big screen. Connery’s masculinity, Lazenby’s human frailties, Moore’s roguish charm, Dalton’s dangerous edge, Brosnan’s grim humor and Craig’s more introspective nature have all added new layers to the character. 

Whoever takes over from Daniel Craig will add more to the mythology, but one theme has remained a constant from 1962’s Dr No to the 2020 release No Time to Die. That is Bond’s ability to look stylish and unflappable whether he’s at the gaming tables in Monte Carlo, out on the golf links or relaxing by the pool. Here, we’ll look at some of the memorable James Bond styles and find out how you can recreate them. 

Formal wear

Perhaps the most iconic image in 007’s history is in Goldfinger when he emerges from the water, and removes his wetsuit to reveal a perfectly pressed tuxedo beneath. That’s one of dozens of occasions in which Bond has shown his ability to look the part among the high rollers at the casino. Now classical casino style is something that’s barely changed at all in 60 years, and the black tie and tuxedo is something that will never go out of fashion. That means this is actually one of the easier Bond fashions to emulate, but in this age of online gambling and local casinos in every town, is it a little over the top? 

A tux is not necessarily the most versatile of investments, but the good news is it is not a prerequisite to achieve the Bond-style formal look. If you watch Daniel Craig in Skyfall from a fashionista’s perspective, you’ll see he dons several formal suits throughout the movie. Tom Ford collaborated with the directors to create the look you see, and both the rich blue suit shown early on and the classic charcoal pinstripe Bond wears later bear his label. 

Pin stripes can cover up a multitude of sins if you don’t quite have Craig’s physique, balancing out any imperfections in your frame. Pair up the suit with a pale blue button down shirt, a dickie bow and your best formal shoes, and you’ll be welcomed with open arms in Monte Carlo!

On the links

Getting out on the golf course is a popular way to demonstrate your sartorial elegance, but it is also fraught with danger. Traditional golf attire can verge on the ridiculous if you don’t take care. This is perfectly demonstrated in Goldfinger, when Bond had a round of golf with the eponymous villain and put him squarely in his place in both the sporting and the fashion stakes. 

While Gert Fröbe’s character went all out with the plus fours, Sean Connery’s Bond showed that less is more, with brown slacks, a pink shirt and branded sweater all topped off by that wonderful fedora. It’s a straightforward style to follow, and designers like Lyle & Scott are a good place to look, give their Scottish origins and specialization in golf wear.  There are plenty of options there with similar colors, but to bring the overall look into the 21st century, you might choose to swap the brown loafers favored by Bond for a pair of smart branded trainers. Whether you feel you can pull off the fedora as successfully as Sean Connery is a matter of personal choice. It’s a style accessory that you’ll never tire of wearing, and this handy guide will help you choose the right one. 

At the beach

Plenty of Bond action takes place at or near the beach, and it is not always wetsuits and tuxedos. In Casino Royale Daniel Craig paid tribute to that famous Ursula Andress beach scene from Dr No, at the same time turning the whole concept on its head, by emerging from the sea in a pair of very short blue trunks. 

It’s not something you could ever picture Connery, Moore, Dalton and the rest doing, but let’s face it, Daniel Craig has the physique to make it work. If you’re blessed with similar pecs and want to show them off, nobody can blame you for that. Suppliers like Boardies offer a range of swim shorts, and like Bond, they are as British as they come! For those of us who would need to tone up a little to feel comfortable with the look, try adding a stylish t-shirt and some good quality sneakers. 

Casual wear

The life of the secret agent is not all about casinos, golf and the beach, which is one thing 007 has in common with the rest of us. There are numerous examples across the years of Bond blending into his surroundings in casual attire. But still, he always manages to do it with a sense of style. 

Our inspiration here is derived from the man who really brought casual style to the Bond character at the turn of the millennium, Pierce Brosnan. The 2002 movie Die Another Day has not gone down as a classic with its lumbering “war on terror” plot and the frankly ridiculous invisible car. But it did allow Brosnan to show us Bond in a few different casual shirts. It’s a triumph of the “just thrown on” look, but still archetypally British.

It’s also probably the simplest of all these looks to recreate. Choose a dark blue buttoned shirt with open collar, and for summer months, you could even pair it with some denim shorts. A pair of tan boat shoes with no socks completes the picture.

CITY GIRLS

The wait is over! Today Yung Miami and JT – together known as City Girls – release their first single together since JT was freed from prison: “You Tried It.” Listen HERE. The internet exploded when JT got out on October 8, 2019, with City Girls holding eight of the top 25 trending topics on twitter – not just trending but trending under eight different topics! (#2 JT FREE; #6 JT HOME; #11 JT IS FREE; #15 JT IS HOME; #16 Caresha; #19 Yung Miami; #20 JT OUT; #23 SO JT). 

Even with JT incarcerated, the girls have racked up 1.2 BILLION streams within two years, with City Girls’ hit records “Act Up” and “Twerk (feat Cardi B)” both RIAA Certified platinum. Separated after JT turned herself in for credit card fraud charges in July, 2018, the same day Drake’s “In My Feelings (featuring City Girls)” was released, Yung Miami has been holding it down: touring, performing, recording videos and features as City Girls. But last month JT was not only released, but Yung Miami pushed out her bundle of joy, Summer. Both got new chains: JT a ‘City Girls’ chain from Miami; Yung Miami a small fries chain celebrating her new small fry – and favorite food – from McDonalds  “YOU B**CHES IN TROUBLE!! MY B**CH [IS] HOME!” Yung Miami tweeted, announcing JT’s freedom. And on her first day out, City Girls released the record “First Day Out,” with JT citing “Stop with all the rumors, and tell your nigga I’m home / And it’s on / Period.” JT and Young Miami are uncensored, unapologetic, sharing a commitment to their hood roots and a bold insistence that the culture they come from shouldn’t stop them from getting a piece of the cash pie. One of the most provocative female hip-hop duos in years, JT and Yung Miami are trailblazers of the next generation of female who speak out as raw and confident — and with as much swagger as the boys.

Getting Started in the World of Fashion Design

The realm of fashion is fast-paced, complex, and difficult to break into. Becoming a fashion designer is by no means easy.

But, it is possible.

Fashion is a huge industry, and needs creative people to continue pushing it forward into the future. Whether you’re looking to get into high fashion, low fashion, or anything in between, I’ll give you some tips about what you can do to increase your odds.

The first thing you need to do: learn to sew. 

Luckily, sewing isn’t that hard to pick up; here’s a great list of books on sewing & dressmaking if you’re looking for inspiration to get started. The earlier you can start building your sewing chops, the quicker you’ll be at banging out mockups and even full-fledged pieces. Start with the easy things—hemming pants and dresses. Rip the buttons off your shirts and learn how to sew them back on. Make a pillowcase, cushion cover, or other small project. Just make sure you’re using the machine and learning a bit at the same time. 

After you know your way around the machine…

Find inspiration and develop taste. 

The fashion world is as big as it is complex, and caters to every taste imaginable. Developing and honing a great sense of taste will reflect in your design work and allow you to create pieces that are as cohesive as they are striking. Raw creativity is good, but it isn’t often that a jumbled mishmash of influences will actually look good. Find out what you like and look for the people who are doing it the best. Whether it’s fast-fashion trends, eclectic streetwear, or the ever esoteric high fashion, figure out what niche of the industry resonates with you the most. In the age of instagram and pinterest, this can be as easy as scrolling through feeds and hitting the double tap. 

When you’ve found a bunch of things that you like, look for commonalities across them. Maybe you like a slim cut, maybe you like chunkier, soft vibes. Do you like monochrome or super colorful? High-waisted pants or dresses? Keep narrowing things down. Maybe the combination of tight pants and chunky tops strikes your fancy, or something else. Try to identify the elements that work as themes. Identify the patterns. It’s important to see the clothes and how they fit, so try to block out the faces of the models, the scenery, and lighting. Developing taste and knowing exactly what you like will help you a lot down the road, especially when developing a portfolio.

Hit the books:

You’re going to have a hard time getting a job in the fashion industry without a degree. A bachelor’s degree is good, but if you have the time and resources available to get your master’s, then your job prospects after education will likely be that much higher. Connections are huge in fashion, and a large part of the benefits of going to college is making those connections with your peers and instructors. College can also be a great place to find internships.

Internships are key to building real-world fashion experience and connections. They are almost as indispensable as an education in the field. You can also get experience through volunteering. So much of the industry consists of more than simply making clothes; internships provide a key to those hidden layers. There’s business, marketing, finances, and sales to consider. But beyond that, both college and internships will give you many chances to add to your portfolio.

The Portfolio…

…is your key to the fashion world. Your calling card. The first thing that potential employers know about you as a person and designer. Think of it as an actor’s reel or voice demo. Portfolios contain designs, technical drawings, finished and unfinished pieces, and mood boards. Compiling a portfolio is an intensely personal process and everybody’s is different, but if you’re having trouble starting there are plenty of guides online

The next step is clear:

Just start. If you’re too young for college, start learning how to use that sewing machine. If you don’t have a sewing machine yet, start drawing your design ideas and refining your tastes on pinterest, instagram, and other sites across the web. Find a designer that you like and read about how they got their start. Keep cracking away on your portfolio. The world of fashion is so exciting because there’s always something new on the horizon, waiting to be created or discovered. Get out there!

Facts About Fake Louis Vuitton Bags

A lot has been said about fake Louis Vuittons on the internet. Although many would argue that buying knockoffs rips the big and well-established designers’ companies their due, not everyone buys their idea though. Everyone out there is sharing their thoughts and experiences with faux Louis Vuitton. Why don’t we share ours also? After all, everyone has something they could share about fashion, looks and the attires they prefer.

It’s the 21st-century girls, we all want to have a say in whatever interests us. How funny is it that people always wonder if they can afford the so-called fashion world Luxuries? People out here are faking it until they make it, others still, going legit and spending wholesome amounts of cash for mere authenticity. You know what? As long as we all rock with what suits our interests and meets our needs, no one cares about the Louis Vuitton fake merchandise or authenticity of what we have on us.

Many women often find themselves in a trance of either going with the brand or to just settle with quality. For sure, many startups in this competitive and crowded fashion industry find it hard to play in the big leagues as the Louis Vuitton, Balenciaga, Channel, Gucci, Tommy, and other globally admired Designers’. The truth of the matter is, even those small startups make just as competitive products as the top dogs in this market only that they lack big brands.

Quality is one thing to consider, a name is another thing to dwell on. Furthermore, no one wants to drain their credit cards for goods they would otherwise spend less for and more so for the same quality. Just so you don’t find me biased my lovely girls, I’ll share with you, what most people want to know about faux Louis Vuitton productss. Especially about the handbags ladies!

Being a fashion fanatic, I will admit to having bought knockoffs and also genuine labels too. This gives me a first-hand experience in both worlds. A pair of beige Kalu accompanied by a Louis Vuitton purse plus a pair of some worthy karats necklace around your neck is always better than just a new Gucci clutch bag with some old outdated jewelry.

On the other hand, an authentic Louis Vuitton handbag is always luxurious and prestigious than some two Balenciaga and Tommy mirror image replicas. Standards need to be set right also! A statement has to be made from the toe to the hat darlings. So as we pick our poisons, we should do so diligently.

Does Luxury and trending fashions need to be expensive always? Well, diving in on the subject matter, let’s discuss some of the pros and cons of purchasing fake Louis Vuitton.

Pros Of Fake Louis Vuitton

They say every cloud has a silver writing, so do the replicas also. Just because the big Designers’ outlets discourage buying knockoffs, does not mean that we, as the Fashion fanatics can’t enjoy an elegant, luxurious and glamorous appearance for just less than those overpriced designer products in the market as well. Kicking us off on the pros of purchasing replica handbags, personally over the years I have felt that;

Affordability

A majority of ladies out here want to rock on everything they put on. From the dress, they pick, to the shoes on their rack, the necklace, belt, and any other coveted accessories a lady would kill for. Buying all these at a go can be quite costly too.

With replicas, our help arrives! At just half the prices of the authentic Saint Laurent, we can have 1:1 mirrored replica of the handbag. Matching the quality, design, and the make, even better it could be customized to my satisfaction, at the same time-saving cash for other items and maybe even now an authentic Stella McCartney blouse plus Tiffany & Co jewelry. That luxurious coveted look that was for a select group of ladies with a lot of money to blow only now becomes available for us all to enjoy with them also.

Compliments, Status & Standards

We all agree that it feels good when people compliment us for the outfit we choose to put on. Walking with your friends from the mall and flushing out your Replica Gucci handbag, earns you the same respect and status given to the celebrities rocking on them labels on social Medias too.

I don’t why, but there is that a little boost of ego and self-esteem when everyone’s all over your purse admiring the make and design. Often very few people can discern between a genuine Designer product and its mirrored replica. Especially if you, by yourself, already knows how the authentic ones are.

The association of owning a very highly-priced designer item in the market gives us the satisfaction of prestige, status and raising our standards a bit. Of course, if we know how to get the knock off item, we also know the ins and outs of the authentic one and would maybe purchase them if possible.

Branding the big Designer Labels

Come to think of it, the big designers’ labels are beneficiaries of the knock offs too. This is why. From the book “The Knockoff Economy” by Kal Raustiala & Christopher Springman, the authors argue that a knockoff item boosts the brands and even sells the Designers’ products in the market.  They further argue that replicas help in brand awareness of authentic accessories. 

Playing the role of a “Trial Run” the knock offs eventually pave way for the authentic items. They further statistically estimate that about 40% of those who purchase knock offs as their trial runs eventually go for the real deal depending on the compliments and opinions they get while having the replicas. Think of it as the knock offs in the long run just advertises the genuine Designers’ handbags.

As others would still argue that purchasing knockoff Louis Vuitton takes away business from the big brands, on the contrary, this does not affect their target customers at all. As the majority of people who purchase knockoffs comfortably, the thought of spending more just for the brand has never crossed them. In the end, these ladies just end up marketing the real products for the label companies.

Supporting local skills, talents and Small startups

Fashion and design always go hand in hand girls. They are inseparable. Just because an upcoming designer lacks a well-established platform like the Gucci, Vuitton, Polo, Chanel, Balenciaga does not mean that they lack the skillset and craftsmanship applied by the big labels out here.

Given a chance, am sure that most of these upcoming designers would even give stiffer competition in the market place than already is. However, as everyone runs for those top dollar labels, the promising and creative startups are left unnoticed.

This raw talent and skillset can better still be supported by purchasing their 1:1 mirrored replicas of the authentic top dollar designer bags. There is no greater fulfillment in life than the feeling of helping someone find their way in a competitive and crowded fashion world out there.

Co-Designing your Handbags

One particular thing I love with replicas is that I get to co-design the bag I specifically order from the replica stores. I always get to approve the replica design sent to me before they manufacture and ship my order. The most amazing part is that all my bags always arrive in the way I desired them to be. This is a priceless adventure darlings. Indeed the replica market is a god sent haven for us. 

Making a statement from what you wear doesn’t have to cost you a fortune anymore. All these quality and branding businesses out here got us covered and still saves our credit cards. Quality, durability, top grade leather and excellent replication are all served, but not from a silver platter anymore.

Cons Of Louis Vuitton Fake Merchandises

With all the pros on faux Louis Vuitton, I doubt if you can be able to draw the line on the cons. But since most of you ladies have had some disappointment along the way before meeting your perfect Replica store, I doubt if we can miss a few. Well maybe from the usual stereotypes we could say;

Poor Quality and Craftsmanship

When I first decided to get a replica Louis Vuitton clutch bag for an event I was to attend. I hassled to get the best quality. In this crowded fashion world market, most replicas I must admit they never meet the standards. But of course, these are for the people who don’t want to put in the extra effort and impress their customers.

Some replicas out there are poorly done for sure. From stitching to the quality of the leather used. At times with the wrong store, you will also get the wrong products and eventually an unworthy experience at the end. You need to know about the authentic Saint Laurent first before going for its replica for quality assurance girls.

Shipment Process

It can be disappointing to wait for your Louis Vuitton handbag up to the last minute only for you to be disappointed by the delayed arrival. This could be somewhat annoying. I know. 

The tricks I’ve used over the years is to always order my bags in due time. Most of my friends have had to attend an invites only event on borrowed purses and accessories just because their order never arrived on time. With the best Replica stores, the threshold time has been taken to ensure quality and your satisfaction has been met. If this has never happened to you, the frustration is devastating. Believe me.

Mode of Payment

Well, most of the online stores accept payments through PayPal. Most of the online transactions are done via PayPal. It’s somehow convenient, right?

The disappointing part is, PayPal payment policy is restricted to authentic top labels products only. With Replicas, the mode of payment has only ended up being done with Western Union. PayPal’s replica business policy limits this payment option nonetheless.

Wear and Tear

As Louis Vuitton replicas are not as authentic the legit Chanel or the Balenciaga Designers, they are prone to wear more first than the real ones. What stays forever anyway? Nothing does. But, unlike the long-lasting and durable Louis Vuitton and Saint Laurent, replicas never a 100% match their durability. 

Ethical Issues Of Buying Fake Louis Vuitton

Some European countries deem the Replica business illegal. To a larger extent, Gucci and Louis Vuitton Fashion houses do crackdowns for their counterfeited accessories. Research suggests;

“In 2010, Louis Vuitton initiated 10,673 raids and 30,171 anti-counterfeiting procedures worldwide, resulting in the seizure of thousands of counterfeit products and the breaking up of criminal networks.”

But some countries including the USA have no issues with replicated goods as long as the consumer is fully aware it is a replica they are purchasing and not being scammed for the real deal.

Well, we as the consumers know what’s best for us for always. We cannot allow these advertisement companies to make us spend a wholesome amount of money while we all know we only want to appear all flashy. We can have both the brand and quality for even less you know. With the right fake Louis Vuitton store, we can have all we’ve ever wanted and at the right price my fellow beloved friends.
