Women Can Never Compromise on Clothes!

We girls can compromise over our diet but never on our clothes – and especially when they are for some occasion close to our heart like prom or a close friend’s wedding.  Keeping this idea in mind we come have up with 2 most favorite dresses from a well- known and affordable (emphasis on the latter) designer for our lovely ladies so they don’t have to go through the agony of looking at expensive luxury dresses only to end up knowing that wearing that dress will cost them an arm and a leg to the least.

The Philadelphia designer Clarisse has come up with an amazing line of gowns and cocktail dresses for the season; featuring haute couture as well as some really over the top prom dresses. This edition of Clarisse spring collection is different because it features dresses and gowns mostly so you can sit back and relax because now you can treat yourself with the ultimate designer wear without selling a kidney.

Clarisse Spring collection features a lot of floral dresses which in our opinion are congruent with today’s fashion trend; the wild forest flowers and lovely pink roses are a perfect match for a girl who loves looking girly and younger than her age on any event. The best part about all the floral dresses in this collection is the silhouette that they are designed in; sleek and sexy at the same time. Most dresses feature a fresh look,pastel-colored floral prints that are paired with light colored tops or waistlines.

Ball gown 3419

We particularly are swooning over the 3419 ivory/print as it features the off shoulder straps with a lace bodice and Cinderella-like flare for rest of the dress. The color of the bodice matches so perfectly with the rest of the scheme of the dress that this dress can easily qualify as the favorite dress for ladies who are soon to become the flower girls or bridesmaids at a wedding.

Porm dress Clarisse 3029

Then there is 3029 Navy/Print floral gown, in our experience, it’s the ultimate definition of how and what a prom dress should really be like. Strapless black floral dress with a sweat heart neckline fastened at the back with ties can easily steal all the attention in a party if it is styled with elegant lazy curled hair and antique accessories; for example metal bracelets and tassel earrings that are all the rage at the moment.

Featured

Are you a prom 2018 video blogger who is just about to attend her first award show? Or are you a beginner blogger who by luck has managed to bag a lunch with the city’s most prominent publisher’s party invite? Or are you just a mediocre woman who wants to spice her life and treat herself? In any case, Promgirl has got you covered with her wide range of affordable couture collection 2018.
Black/red dress 4808 is one dress from 2018 collection that we are specifically eyeing on this season.

Clarisse prom dress 4808

This dress is an epitome of elegance. Featuring the contemporary silhouette on the most classic color combination of black and white floral patterns, the black/red 4808 gown is fit for a woman who wants to be the life of the party as well as someone who wants to leave a mark in the minds of people when she leaves. The gown features a cutout back which makes it super sassy from behind, while on the front the dress features a boat neck making it modest and modern at the same time. If we talk about the flare of the dress, white/black gets 10/10 for the couture design it carries characterized by ruffles and layers which add up to the volume of the dress making it perfect for all red carpet appearances.
Having talked about the dress in detail we came up with a few styling tips that can really make this dress a show stopper at any event. Since the dress itself has a lot going on already we advise our dear ladies to style modestly. First thing’s first, your hairstyle. Try playing out with your hair before you finally decide to go out- try a ponytail if you have a small face as it makes your face look bigger, however, if you have a large oval face then we recommend bangs that hide your forehead with beach waves as one thing compensates for the other. For makeup, go subtle for day events while for night events you can easily play out the holographic or fresh eyes using Huda beauty desert dusk palate. For lips go subtle or bold that’s your personal preference but we advise going low on the darker shades and experimenting with light ombre lips because the dress already has a lot going on. Since the dress is from a couture collection you wouldn’t want your styling to overshadow it, so neither show the dress off.

Dos and Don’ts of This Season’s Sportswear Chic

Thanks in part to the recent Olympics, the sportswear as casual wear trend is hitting hard and strong for 2013. Just because the sporty look is casual doesn’t mean it has to be sloppy. Baggy sweatpants, drooping T-shirts and ill-fitting cropped tops are not the key to achieving sports chic.

Do: Be tailored

Swap the baggy sweatpants for alluring leggings, the droopy tee for a jazzy yoga tank and the ill-fitting cropped top for a well-fitting hoodie. You get the idea. You can be comfy and casual and still look good.

Don’t: Go glitzy

The sportswear look is meant to be casual, which means you can really muss it up with over-the-top accessories. Massive bling, high heels, loads of makeup or a super-dressy purse are prime ways to wreck the entire vibe of the outfit.

Do: Matching accessories

Opt instead for accessories that add to the overall sporty chic-ness, such as a small canvas cross-body bag or a nifty pair of wedge sneakers. You can also go for what Fashionising.com calls the “dudette cap,” which is basically a sporty baseball cap that happens to go with your outfit. Real team logos are not necessary, although there is nothing wrong with donning a Yankees cap, for instance, if you happen to be wearing navy blue.

Don’t: Dress “as if”

Decking yourself out in a full-fledged surfer’s outfit for a night on the town is going to look, well, stupid. So is wearing a full-fledged soccer uniform as your daytime casual fashion. You do not want to appear as if you are actually on your way to participate in a sporting event when you’re really just heading out to dinner.

Do: Steal the details

Since you don’t have to be true to the actual sport outfit from which you’re stealing, you can instead focus on nabbing the coolest details. That means taking the neon vibe from the surfer’s gear, the stripes from the soccer goalie’s garb or the fab pants and shirts from the yogi. Feel free to mix and match to your heart’s content, pairing yoga pants with a striped, goalie-like shirt or a neon skort inspired by the beachiest surfers. You can apply these principles to any situation in your life as when going to the prom or homecoming parties.

Remember to keep your outfit easy, breezy and clean and you’ll be able to hit a home run with the sporty chic look just about every time. And no matter how cool a sports outfit looked before the gym, please don’t keep wearing it all day long after your workout is done.

Cool Ways to Wear a Brooch

Brooches may have been hip in your grandmother’s time, but that doesn’t mean they’ve gone out of style. These fabulous, striking pins can add a jazzy dash to just any outfit, whether you’re going formal or casual, and they can even work with a boyfriend sweater and your favorite jeans!

On buttons or closures. A brooch can make an eye-catching statement on a boyfriend sweater or your favorite cardigan if you put it where a top button would normally be. The jewelry also works where other closures normally sit, such as your jeans’ waistband, your dress’s back clasp or a shirt’s button on your wrist.

 

As a conglomeration. If your outfit lacks pizzazz, you can jazz it up instantly by wearing a cool collection of brooches! The only caveat is to make sure you situate them in an area that has ample room to show them off, such as the chest area right above your heart. Heck, if one brooch is good, just imagine how great a whole collection of them can be.

As a hairpiece. Instead of reaching for that ho-hum barrette, grab a bobby pin and a bit of wire to accessorize your hair with a brooch. A brooch can look especially fab with an up-sweep and instantly cool with a side part and fastened piece of hair. You can also clip a brooch on a fabric headband or ponytail holder for extra oomph.

As a hoker. Forget scouring the flea markets for a dazzling choker pendant. If you have a brooch, you may already have one. Fasten your brooch to a velvet ribbon that you connect under the pin around your neck. Voila! Instant chic.

Along a hemline. A cute short skirt or dress becomes a killer short skirt or dress if you add an amazing brooch along the hemline. Practice the placement to make sure you don’t put it where it may uncomfortably hit your leg, and sashay out the door with a creative twist!

One of the best ways to sizzle with a brooch is to wear it where it’s unexpected. Because many brooches are fabulously showy and bold, they can add a unique touch to even the blandest outfits or add one more layer of dazzle to an outfit that already rocks.

 

Tips for Wearing Bright Colors at Your Formal Affair

Bright colors can be the main feature of your glamorous look, as long as you give them the space they need to really sizzle. More modern gowns look best decked out in splashy, vibrant colors, with the mermaid gown and sheath gown styles at the top of the list.

Both body-hugging styles can offer a full-length splash of a sizzling color, with the mermaid gown adding extra pizzazz in a contrasting flare of skirt that kicks into existence at the knee. Short cocktail dresses can also rock the look, especially if they have modern cuts or features.

Skin tone. Vibrant colors look dazzling on a wide range of skin tones. These include lighter skin with or without freckles, medium tones with brown or auburn hair, super-pale skin and darker tones that make bright colors absolutely pop.

Accessories. Going all-out with a full palette of matching, bright colors on your accessories might be enough to make your date’s head spin. Instead opt for neutrals or a complimentary pastel shade that neither detracts nor tries to exactly match the main hue.

Another major caveat for wearing bright tones is to make sure nothing clashes. This goes for the colors of your clutch, shoes and gemstones as well as your hair. Bright red hair, for instance, may not look its best next to a bright orange dress, although it could look dazzling next to a jazzy emerald green.

Use these tips to make your own splash in a vibrant gown, but be prepared for plenty of compliments and attention!

Tips for Wearing a Mermaid Dress

Wearing a mermaid dress can be a thrill, but it can also be a challenge. The gown is so named because it resembles a mermaid, with a tight-fitting body and a poufy skirt that flares out from the knee. Use these tips to find a mermaid dress you love, and to make it work for you.

 Focus on Fit. Because mermaid gowns hug every curve and expose every possible bump, finding one that fits you smoothly is your top priority. The form-fitting sheath of the gown can easily create bumps that are not usually there if you pick a gown that is simply too tight. Seamless undergarments are another rule to further avoid bumps and lumps that can ruin your look.

 Kneeling and walking. Kneeling down in a mermaid gown can be a bit difficult, but you can master the art if you practice. Rather than kneeling in the typical fashion of putting one leg far in front of the other, try kneeling by keeping your legs as close together as possible and gently moving your body down toward the floor. Use a chair for support if necessary.

Walking in the gown can also take practice. Avoiding long strides is the key to successfully staying on your feet. Walk instead with short graceful steps that do not pull at the sides of the gown. Also pay attention to your poufy mermaid skirt to ensure it flows behind you or to the sides.

With plenty of practice and the proper choice of undergarments, these tips can help you wear a mermaid dress with confidence and spend your special evening in style.

Tips for Wearing Pastels at Your Formal Event

Short cocktail dress 2015

Cocktail dress 2015

Pastels usually give off a feminine and delicate vibe, and you can play up that feel by opting for a feminine and delicate dress. Ideal styles for pastels include the much beloved ball gown and its shorter cousin the ballerina gown, both of which feature a form-fitting bodice and a bell-shaped skirt.

The ball gown typically reaches to the floor while the ballerina gown is cut at the mid-calf. You can even go one shorter while keeping the feminine feel in a short cocktail dress that rocks the same silhouette.

 Skin tone. Pastels can add an air of angelic beauty, or they can totally wash you out. Much of the harmony depends on your skin tone, with rosy pink tones usually look best in pastels. From there, the pastel palette is wide open! Rosy tones look equally as smashing in a luxurious lavender as they do in a soft and cuddly pink, with light yellow and sky blue also on the list.

Accessories. Don’t disrupt the soft tone or delicate look of a pastel by weighing it down with clunky shoes and heavy jewelry. Opt instead for a light-colored or neutral delicate pair of heels and equally delicate jewelry. Either silver or gold can work, depending on the shade of pastel you choose.

Pick one pastel and stick with it, as mixing more than one can leave you looking like an Easter egg! Use these tips to instead stay soft, sweet and simply stunning.

Tips on Avoiding the Fashion Accessories Police

The fashion accessories police are on the prowl when it comes to the bag and outerwear you choose to go with your gown. Every gal needs a bag, and you may also need a jacket or wrap.

The big danger is getting too bulky with your bag or drowning your gown with your outerwear. Big handbags rock, but not for the prom! Straps on big bags can pull at your gown and the bulk can ruin your silhouette.  Regardless of how gorgeous your gown is its beauty means nothing beneath a ratty or over sized wrap or jacket.

Do go small and sleek but functional. Clutches are the way to go to fully compliment your gorgeous look. Make sure it’s large enough to accommodate the bare essentials and make sure you pare down the bare essentials to what you honestly may need.

Opt for outerwear that keeps you warm and offers the protection you need while blending into your ensemble. A cozy wrap may work as can a tailored jacket that follows the silhouette of your dress.

Color and style. The color and style of your bag, wrap or jacket should compliment your gown without overpowering it or distracting from it. Opt for matching hues and the same elegant, vintage or playful style that graces your dress. If your dress is overly wild or embellished, however, stick on the simple side with your accessories.

These tips can help you remember that your gown is taking center stage and your accessories are there to support it, not take away from its glory!

Tips for Channeling a Hollywood Goddess in Your Formal Attire

The Hollywood goddess look is once again hot on the red carpet and you can channel that look with a few tips.

Gown style. Hollywood goddess gowns are definitely long, lean and super-sultry! A floor-length sheath dress is your best bet to get the Hollywood glam style, with a body-hugging fabric that shows off your curves. Hourglass figures have a heyday in the Hollywood goddess style, but the look can also work for anyone who is comfortable enough to show off in a form-fitting gown.

A sweetheart neckline rocks on the body-hugging sheath, and you can go strapless or with prominent straps that are part of a sizzling halter. The waist should be fitted and the skirt long and lean, accented with a high, leg-baring slit if you dare!

Accessories. Strappy shoes compliment the goddess look, preferably in a hue that also compliments the dress. Small, beaded clutches can add one more layer of pizzazz; opt for one in a 1940s-era vintage style. Chandelier or other prominent earrings can top off the dazzle, especially if you get them in rhinestones! Forget about the necklace if you go for eye-catching earrings and let your dress’s neckline speak for itself.

Hair. Big, loose curls were the rage for this bygone era, as long as they were contained in a smooth and polished style. Think Marilyn Monroe. Another option is a dramatic upsweep that once again highlights your neckline.

The only other tip is to be read for gads of attention as your enter your prom or big night, as the look has a way of turning heads in your direction!
