The Top 12 Runway Trends of Spring 2016


http://www.vogue.com/slideshow/13360870/best-spring-2016-runway-trends/#1
How best to sum up the mood that emerged from all the action on the Spring 2016 runways? In a word: profusion. Here was maximalism of a new stripe, writ large everywhere, from the collection of Gucci’s magpie creative director, Alessandro Michele, to those of romantics like Alexander McQueen’s Sarah Burton and Erdem Moralioglu. If the season’s new clothes are any indication, shoppers are hungrier than ever for something to grab onto, for an emotional component that extends beyond mere high-gloss luxury. Designers have responded in kind, serving up the romantic, the eye-catching, and the ornate. Even the industry’s most-famed minimalists are wearing a certain eccentricity on their sleeves—in Phoebe Philo’s case, we mean that quite literally, with the period-tinged full-sleeves she showed at Céline. With the season’s visual feast, how best to make sense of what you’ll be shopping for come springtime? We’ve broken down the 12 key trends here.

The Mini-Me Effect: How Celebrity Kids Take Good Hair for a Street Style Spin



http://www.vogue.com/13373456/ciara-angelina-jolie-hairstyles-mother-daughter-braids-blowouts/

Fashion’s favorite bombshell moms may be walking proof of the undeniable magic that happens when a great head of hair is treated to a bouncy blowout, but it seems their kids are taking their beauty cues from an edgier source: street style.

Cindy Crawford’s teenaged doppelgänger, Kaia Gerber, who has clearly inherited her mother’s legendary mane, was spotted in Manhattan recently with thick twin Grecian braids, an off-duty-model favorite that was paired with a downtown uniform of black skinnies and a biker jacket.

Over in Boston, Gisele Bündchen’s 2-year-old, Vivian, showed off a wispy, face-framing wreath that promised to benefit as much from a gusty day as her mother’s trademark windswept waves do.

Speaking of the offbeat chic of a little seasonal static, one look at Vivienne Jolie-Pitt’s fuzzy flaxen waves may be all you need to give your hairbrush a break this Thanksgiving weekend. And we wouldn’t be surprised if Ciara’s son Future inspired the singer’s recent natural-curls moment with his adorable fluffy texture. Here, four amply maned mini-me’s who have much to be thankful for—good genes included.

The Unexpected Reign of “Period Piece” Style on the Spring Runways



“We are attracted to clothes that have a history, a past life, a new romanticism.” That’s Philosophy designer Lorenzo Serafini on fashion’s current mood. As he told Vogue.com, “What captivates me about Victorian style is the layering and internal structure of the clothes, almost always with bustiers and corsets that have been traditional symbols of femininity. Come to think about it, those are the elements that I subconsciously reinterpret in lingerie—little structured jackets and corsets.” Beyond Serafini’s Victoriana-by-way-of-David-Hamilton vibes, Jonathan Anderson showed oversize leg-of-mutton sleeves at his eponymous label, and Erdem Moralioglu put a dark spin on prairie prettiness. Find Spring’s best “period pieces” in the slideshow below.

Ready to Bare (Almost All)? The Bra Top Is In for Spring ’16

1 / 10
http://www.vogue.com/13370528/spring-2016-runway-trends-bra-tops-lingerie/

Wallflowers, take warning: In keeping with the runways’ newfound yen for nudity, designers are daring their clientele to bare just a bit more for Spring with a host of bra tops. Interpretations ran the gamut, from Alexander Wang’s dreamy, cream-colored take at Balenciaga to Dries Van Noten’s more substantial, layered imagining. Amid the artful pieces on Simon Porte Jacquemus’s runway was a cinched poplin bandeau. As for how to wear it, styling, he says, is crucial. “It could be worn on top of a simple T-shirt or a classic [button-down] shirt. It can be very easy or not.”
Consider this equation: The flimsier the top, the more generous a pant or skirt you’ll want to opt for. Jacquemus’s mannish trousers, for example, make a winning marriage with the style. Whether you go for a bra top in your own life or not, perhaps this trend is one that’s a harbinger of larger sea changes. Per Jacquemus: “I think we all need to be free, and bare is, of course, a [sign of] freedom, before being a fashion trend.” Amen.

7 ITEMS THAT MAKE YOU INSTANTLY MORE ATTRACTIVE



Infinite information is out there on fashion and what makes certain trends so appealing, which colors are best to wear, which pieces make the biggest impact. It's no secret that we're fascinated by the psychology behind our sartorial obsessions—and making style choices backed by science is what any savvy woman should do. But with so many facts and findings floating around the Internet, it's hard to apply it all to your real-life look.
To make it easier, WhoWhatWear compiled a list of five items that will make you instantly more attractive—all based on studies and surveys conducted by legitimate research teams. See these must-haves below, plus two more essentials we thought the list was incomplete without.

1. Heels
According to this study published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior, not only was heel height found to be directly proportional to a woman's attractiveness to men, but men were increasingly likely to exhibit helpful behavior and to spontaneously approach a woman the higher her heels were. 




2. The Little Black Dress
Black has been determined by many sources to be the number-one color associated with characteristics such as sexiness, confidence, and intelligence.






3. Shoulder-Baring Styles
Thought breasts and butts were the only features men cared about? Think again. Researchers at the University of New South Wales discovered that men were highly attracted to women's shoulders and arms.





4. Something Red
The color of passion, love and romance is a favorite of men for women and of women for themselves. Surprise, surprise. The Journal of Personality and Social Psychology just made official what we already knew.




5. A Bodycon Silhouette
While long limbs (as indicated above) are still high on the list of attractors, there's no denying the seductive appeal of a buxom hourglass figure. A paper published in the Archives of Sexual Behavior indicates that women with larger bust-to-waist and waist-to-hip ratios tend to catch men's eyes  faster and keep their gaze longer than their longer, lankier girlfriends. If you have those Kim Kardashian curves, flaunt them.




6. Lipstick 
On a bad day, there's always lipstick. Nothing provides the instant pick-me-up quite like a swipe of your signature shade—and apparently others will respond to it, too. Researchers at a French university found that  waitresses who wore red lipstick saw boosted tips from male customers. Similarly, a study conducted by Boston University women wearing a moderate application of makeup were perceived as more attractive, competent, and trustworthy.





7. Sunglasses
While not technically supported by any official study (that we know of), every fashion girl knows the power of a good pair of shades for making her look put-together and hiding tired eyes. Not to mention adding a touch of mystery and intrigue that's guaranteed to turn heads.

How to do face makeup step by step?





Properly executed face makeup to add complexion radiance, will cover signs of fatigue, the curtain imperfections and wrinkles. To the makeup you do not need to have a huge amount of cosmetics. See for itself that adequate knowledge and a little bit of practice is all you need to look like a real star.

If you do not have time to elaborate face makeup (or just taking the first steps in the field of make-up), you need really only three cosmetics: equalizer, powder and rouge. In addition, you must always carry a good moisturizer and eye cream. Good hydration of the skin and the skin under the eyes is the foundation of every successful makeup.

When skin is properly hydrated, its problematic parts we put the equalizer. It is good to do it at the beginning of makeup, because once we superimpose shadows under the eyes and pimples, we find that the rest of the face does not require us already so heavy make-up as it might seem at first. When it comes to choosing the equalizer eye, it should be a shade lighter than your skin tone. How to recognize the color corrector is right? If after applying concealer seems to be greyish, earthy, it means that it is too bright. If the place of its imposition becomes very yellow concealer you have to be too dark. Equalizer was first applied at the inner corner of the eye, right on the nose. It is usually the darkest part of the face. Lightening her make immediately spend more rested. Concealer should also be applied to the entire area under the eyes and gently pat with your finger. If your face there are any imperfections (blood vessels, pimples), it also curtains equalizer.

We move to the next stage, namely primer. We can be applied in three ways. To get an accurate opacity, apply primer specially designed brush. To get the delicate face makeup or cover up only some parts of the face, apply foundation with your fingers or a makeup sponge. Particular attention should be paid to cereal nose, because almost always there are dilated.

 The next step is to apply face powder. Powder consolidate all the face makeup and allow him to survive in immaculate condition throughout the day. Best for loose powder. Sprinkle the face with a specialized, large brush. If you have dry skin, zapudruj only the nose and forehead. Do not forget to impose powder on the eyelid, it will prepare them for the application of shadows.

The last step is to blush. Before you apply it on the cheekbones, shake out the excess brush. Why? Because it is easier to be modeled face by applying several thin layers of pink, than trying to wash away the excess. For applying blush, use a broad brush. We go from the cheekbones to the hairline and good rub. For most women is the best roses in stone, but if you have dry skin, you can use roses in cream.

Yes executed facial makeup will make you look stunning. Now, just skillfully emphasize the eyes and lips, apply a moisturizing lip glos

How I Lost Fat Fast In 3 Weeks With This Weight Loss Diet





Are you looking to lose weight quickly? Are you sick of all the scams out there like diet pills and infomercial products that promise the world but don’t deliver? Then I have the solution for you!




Everybody says that weight loss is an extremely difficult task that takes months and sometimes years, and that you have to eat terribly boring foods to see any results. I know for a fact that this is not true because I lost over 20 pounds in only 21 days using a secret diet I found online.

http://anulka67.3weekdiet.hop.clickbank.net I was in the exact same situation you are in now. I was overweight, lazy, and hated my body. I didn’t feel sexy, or slim, and I hated buying new clothes because I knew I always had to buy the extra large size. I had tried all the diets out there – from the low carb diet, the sugar free diet, the cabbage soup diet, the mango diet, the acai berry diet, and frankly, none of them worked for me. I had tried going to the gym regularly to exercise but honestly, when you are a full-time mother with 3 kids, who has the energy to workout every day for hours on end? Then, I discovered The 3 Week Diet and my life changed.

I was doing some searching on Google one day for “extreme diets”. You know, not the types of diets that take months of slow, boring progress, but the “rapid” diets that work fast. I came across an article by a world class nutritionist who said he had tried a program called The 3 Week Diet and was able to lose 1 lb of body fat a day for 3 weeks by following it. 


I could hardly believe it. 1 pound of fat per day? I didn’t think it was possible. My goal that I had been trying for years to achieve was to lose 20 pounds. And this diet was promising that I could achieve that in only 20 days! All those years of feeling frustrated and disgusted by my body would be over in an instant. I visited The 3 Week Diet and watched the video where the doctor explained how he was able to create a scientific method to burn the fat fast, without using diet pills or exercise. I had never heard someone explain a diet like this before, but everything he said made 100% sense to me.

I quickly joined The 3 Week Diet and begun the process of losing weight quickly. Day 1 of following the diet, I lost half a pound of fat. Not bad. Day 2 on the diet and I lost a massive 2 lbs of fat! By the end of the first week I had lost near 10 lbs of pure body fat. My stomach was slimmer, my butt was firmer, and I could actually fit comfortably into a nice pair of jeans!

http://anulka67.3weekdiet.hop.clickbank.net I followed the diet for the entire course of 3 weeks, and by the end of it, I had lost a staggering 25 pounds! That was more than I had expected! Friends and family were commenting how much weight I had lost, and I was getting looks from young men half my age! I had never felt healthier or happier in my entire life. I could now wear any outfit I wanted, I felt more confident. My husband was so pleased and excited. He loved my new body and our sex life improved dramatically!

I owe it all to The 3 Week Diet. It changed my life and it allowed me to lose so much fat off my body without having to starve myself or do strenuous exercise. It was honestly so easy to follow and keep up with.

The 3 Week Diet is an extreme diet for rapid weight loss that shows you how you can lose over 20 pounds of pure body fat in just 3 weeks. Whether you want to lose weight off your belly, hips, butt, or thighs, The 3 Week Diet is fastest way to lose weight quickly without diet pills or exercise.

Victoria's Secret Model Street Style: See What the Beauties Wore to Show Fittings


Street style shots of Victoria's Secret Fashion Show beauties prove that the models have off-duty style just as amazing as the lingerie they'll wear on the runway. Even though the extravaganza will air on CBS on Dec. 8, the actual show is happening next week in New York City. And while we know a lot (Lily Aldridge will wear this year's diamond-palooza Fantasy Bra, Kendall Jenner and Gigi Hadid will be in the show), we don't know exactly what each stunner will be wearing on the catwalk. What we have been made aware of? The perfect-for-fall outfits they all wore when attending fittings this week at the the brand's Manhattan headquarters.

Candice Swanepoel


 Swanepoel picked a form-fitting black dress and classic pumps that she toughened up with a black leather moto jacket. She's spotted in a lot of round sunnies too, and this workday was no exception.



 Vita Sidorkina



 Need proof white jeans work post-Labor Day? (And for a fall date night to boot!) Sidorkina pulled over-the-knee boots over her pair, tucking in a thin white top and covering up with a blush jacket tossed over her shoulders. Her bag is by Ralph Lauren.


Cindy Bruna  


 Unseasonably warm NYC weather let Bruna sizzle in a crop top that bared some prepared-for-the-catwalk abs. From her bomber jacket to tall boots, the rest of her look was made of fall style staples.


 Kate Grigorieva


 Grigorieva looked super laid-back in a combo of all the seasonal staples we're currently living in: a crewneck sweater, jeans, and flat ankle boots.


 Sara-Sampaio


 While the V.S. runway is usually a fantasy of bright colors, sparkle, and other sweet things, Sampaio looked comfortable rocking the all-black model-off-duty vibe (save for her snowy purse—clearly she didn't get the memo on how much we're loving matching purses to coats).


 Romee Strijd


 Kendall Jenner still appears to be out in Los Angeles, but we see some shared style sensibilities between her and Dutch beauty, Strijd. The high-waisted skinny jeans, silver belt buckle, and ankle boots scream K.J.



 Daniela-Braga



 Another statement leather topper made an appearance, this time with studded sleeves. Braga counted on the piece to fall-proof her white denim and strappy sandals.

Colorful Stockings to Raise Your Style Quotient



 
Stockings are the new fashion statement of the millennium. For some it is just one of the clothing in the wardrobe while others may find it as a piece of accessory that adds glam quotient to their attire. Pair it up with anything like skirts, tunics, dresses and you are sure to add a magic touch to your personality. Stockings are available in various colors, prints, fabrics and have become the flavor of the season.

This new fashion accessory is a must in every woman's wardrobe. Stockings are also known as hosiery or hose even known as Nylons, used to cover the legs and feet. Apart from the usual black, beige and ivory, this season brings some attractive colors in the stockings that will look stylish and stunning. This gentle attire can be worn almost with all the garments. Many international celebs like Rihanna, Lady Gaga, Beyonce Knowles and Victoria Beckham have sported it at events and have become the talk of the town.

Today women are open to experimenting with their looks and attire. Earlier stockings were seen as utility clothing but now with changing times, it is looked at as an attire to raise your style quotient. It is important to wear it with the right garment. If the dress you are wearing is dark, pair it up with bright color stockings. Darker the tone of stockings, slimmer will be the look.

Stockings with lycra are always well fitted and easy to slip on. Pair up your red dress with classic black colored polka doted stockings and you will have all eyes popping. Wear the right pair of heels to complete the look. This pair of clothing can be worn to work, parties or any special occasion as it goes well with any event because of its versatility and eternal charm.

A wide range of stockings are available in the market. When talking about different types of stockings, it is necessary to know about its kinds and knits. From sheer stockings to glossy or classic stockings, you can avail anything to style up your persona. With funky opaque stockings flaunt your legs without actually showing off anything. It's also a good option to remain stylish even in winters.

Fishnet stockings are very popular and give the wearer a sexy look. It can be worn with any outfit and are available in standard black, bold and trendy colors. Besides, one can buy the latest designer stockings to become stylish at a snap and available in attractive designs. If you want to get noticed, adorn fashion stockings available in the trendiest styles. To enhance your legs, one can find stockings decorated with bright stones, lace, bows or zippers even ripped. It's a sure step to look exceptional at any event.

In addition, there are sheer stockings that are easy and comfortable to wear. They are apt to go with office wear or a night out and a definite way to make your legs look great. If you wish to try something different go for lace stockings that will look chic and sensuous. With so many latest designs available in lace stockings, you cannot stop from getting noticed.

Generally hosiery is measured in 'diners' which shows the thickness of the fiber and 'gauge' represents the number of stitches in a line. Therefore, as long as the fabric is pure nylon, lesser the diner number, finer the stockings. Moreover, stockings are made with different kinds of knits. Like the regular flat knit, earlier this knit was used to make stockings which were soft and smooth. In addition, there are other types of knit like 'Kant run', Micromesh, Pebble mesh and Textures.

You will be surprised to know that this pair of clothing was introduced about 400 years back in 1589. An English churchman Rev. William Lee invented the first knitting machine. At that time they started making hosiery from cotton, silk and wool. The machine was very valuable for the country to the extent that the queen declared death penalty to anyone who tried to export the machine.

In that era stockings were worn in different ways. Sometimes a number of silk stockings were worn to protect from cold. In the 17th century when big boots were in fashion, linen overstockings were worn to protect the silk stockings worn beneath. Till the end of 18th century men used to wear silk stockings but later long trousers were in trend and hence stockings were replaced by socks and have been worn since then.

Long silk stockings bounced back in fashion after the First World War when short skirts became fashionable. Women had access to cotton stockings too. With the invention of 'Dupont Nylon' fibre, the dominance of silk stockings faded away and Nylon stockings came in vogue after World War II.

It is said that when the first nylon stockings were made available in New York stores in the year 1940, it became an instant hit and over 72,000 pairs were sold on the very first day. Thereafter, in the first year of its release almost 64 million pairs of stockings were sold and the producers were unable to meet the demand of the people.

In the 60's modern 'reinforced heel and toe' (RHT) flawless stockings came into the scene. These stockings are without any break or disruptions as they are made by tightening the stitches on a circular knitting machine. Later when women wore very short skirts, stockings went at the backstage and tights were more preferred. The stockings almost got vanished as pantyhose gained popularity. Fortunately, they are back in fashion in the 21st century to accentuate the woman's figure.
 At present stockings are made comfortable and accessible at all apparel stores. They are the hottest garment in town to spice up a womans look. It is the easiest way to make your legs look great by teaming up your attire with the right kind of stockings. Fashion stockings have become indispensable part of womans wardrobe to fire up their style quotient.
