Women’s Designer Belts

Most of the time, the best way to create a chic and stylish look is by accessorizing. Learning how to accessorize properly can spell a huge difference between looking drab into glamorously fabulous.

We can even come-up with whole new looks with the same outfits just by using different accents each time. One accessory that will never go out of style is that thing we put around our waists called belts.

Whether we choose a designer belt or any regular belt, so long as we know how to use them well; we can create a stunning ensemble every time. On the other hand, designer belts don’t need a lot of work; simply wearing them is accent enough to any outfit.

Different Belts for Women

Women who have a good fashion sense know just how to put belts into good use. Whether we put them through the belt holes in our jeans and soft pants; or we use these to accent our skirts, empire-cut tops, shorts or tube dresses; belts can work their magic to any ensemble any time.

Belts come in many different materials and styles; and each one can provide us with the right accent to complete our look. Soft, polyester belts; hard and soft leather; belts in all shades and combinations; our choices run the gamut so we’ll never run out of options when it comes to selecting the right belt to accentuate our outfits.

We may also find that designer belts have a wider range of styles, shades and sizes. Typically, these types of belts come out with different styles each season so we can be sure that they can provide us with just the perfect accent for whatever clothes are in season at the moment.

Some of the most popular branded belts carry such popular names as Prada, Gucci, Dolce and Gabbana, Burberry, Paul Smith, Gianni Versace and Fendi. Price range for these designer belts is roughly somewhere between $180 – $400; depending on the style.

Choosing Designer Belts Online

While we may be a bit apprehensive with buying our belts online; after all, we would want to get the feel of the belt before purchasing it; plus we want. To be certain that we are getting the real deal. These are quite expensive belts so we want to be sure of our purchase.

However, designer belts that are being offered online are the real deal. They are also the ones that we would find in the land-based designer stores and outlets; the only difference is that we are not walking into an actual shop, but a virtual one.

In fact, buying our designer belts online could be the better choice because these are noticeably cheaper; plus normally, online shops have marketing promos to entice more customers which means that we may get more than just an excellent belt when we but it online!

The only precaution that we will have to take is the specific online shop where we will be getting our designer belts from. We can find out about these trustworthy online shops through word-of-mouth or referrals from friends.

Practical Advice on Fashion Accessories

A few accessories to enhance and flaunt your beauty are, not in that order, hand bags, jewellery, shoes, sun glasses, scarves, gloves and so forth. Read on for both genders.

Women

Shoes

You could look at flip flops as an interesting idea for your shoes. The other interesting ideas include shoes with printed design of popular symbols, ankle straps and ones with a little fine detail like tiny chains.

Handbags

Handbags with prints of bold messages or symbols will showcase your dynamic personality; add to it a pinch of witty humor and you will be perfect. Choose colors that are not so flashy as those might give you a retro look; colors like beige are pleasing as well as elegant. Why not add a dash of your creativity and choose ones with tiny ornaments studded on to the handbags!

Jewellery

The jewellery idea en vogue is perhaps a necklace with several layers with several beads. Wear that cute little bracelet in funky designs: amoeba designs and other irregular patterns. Can you afford to miss your wrist watch? Get creative and demand designs that are out of the world; after all, your watch is also a jewel.

Sun Glasses

There is a whole new clan in the offing. Sun glasses and power glasses with thick frames and flashy colors is definitely not off the wall. Choose trendy colors and get that second look!

Some Designer labels for women:

Men

Women have ruled the fashion world all along but men are fast catching up. Do not get laid behind; discover the fashion trends to invent your supremacy in the fashion arena.

Watches

Go for large straps if you want to look funky. But reserve the watches with not-so-big straps for formal occasions. You may want to choose a metal band with a light-colored dial. Good luck, CEO!

Wallets

Wallets are only used to store money, right? Wrong. Every time you take that wallet out, you are announcing to the world whether you are fashionable or not. Can you afford to declare it in the negative? Nah! Psst…give your wallets an overhaul periodically and that would do the trick.

Belts

Keep your belts to be worn on formal occasions thin and save those glamorous thick belts to accompany a party animal that is you! Much so, a dual color reversible belt may suit your not-so-formal occasion perfectly.

Some Designer labels for men:

Kenneth Cole, Ralph Lauren, Burberry, Giorgio Armani, Gucci, Richmond, Charles Hubert

Fashion Trends for Spring/Summer 2011

With the Spring and Summer just round the corner, the time is now to get your new wardrobe sorted, but what should you be looking for? Well with all the Spring/Summer 2011 catwalks finished and all the reports in there are a lot of trends to take note of. However, with my help you are sure to create the perfect Spring/Summer wardrobe this year.

Here are a few that I think will be the biggest trends to follow this Spring/Summer 2011:

Back less trend

One trend that I seen repeatedly featured in fashion magazines is showing off your bare back. I personally love this look; it is stylish, sexy, feminine and sophisticated.

From Yves Saint Laurent, Alexander Wang and Julien MacDonald to Tommy Hilfiger, Balenciaga by Nicholas Ghesquiere and Dior, creating a new erogenous zone has become an incredibly popular design.

As the backless design is so simple, styling up the trend is easy and fun. Take feathers, chains, neck bows, frills, lacing and and add extra straps to ensure all the best decorations are behind you.

My favourite back less piece featured on the Spring/Summer 2011 catwalk is a mustard yellow, tailored jumpsuit by Etro. Teamed with a dark brown skinny belt and summer hat the 70s inspiration is still strong in current design. The tailoring is simple with the cuts beautifully mastered to compliment the female figure. With all of this in mind the Etro jumpsuit is a beautiful item I would love to cherish in my wardrobe.

However, for those who love detailing, when styling a back less piece, take inspiration from Julien MacDonald for frills, Gucci for chain detailing and John Galliano and Donna Karen for a romantic twist.

Colour Trend – Blue

When you think of the summer you begin to imagine your perfect holiday retreat, whether it be a boat break across the Mediterranean or a relaxing beach holiday where the water is so clear and blue you instantly feel relaxed, calm and at peace. So how convenient is it and perfectly time, when I tell you that blue is the biggest colour trend of Spring/Summer 2011.

This season the catwalks ran riot with dazzling bright colours with sumptuous jewel tones and either worn as a one piece hue or in a boldly clashing combination. The catwalks were filled with explosive re, pink, purple, orange and yellow hues, yet the biggest colour story that has made the brightest impact is blue.

From Cynthia Steffe, Issey Miyake and Peter Pilotto to Blumarine, Etro and Alexandre Herchcoritch’s shows you will find a deep sea of luscious blue tones that will help you sail to a tranquil wardrobe.

If denim has always played a staple part in your wardrobe, there is good news; the double denim trend has been translated into many Spring/Summer 2011 collections. When wearing this true-blue denim trend bear in mind sharp cuts. These cuts will make your outfit look sleek and sharp; boyfriend shirts won’t be suitable this season.

Other designers to note for bringing colour intensity to their runway are Viktor & Rolf, AKRIS, Isabel Marant, Roland Mouret, Jason Wu Matthew Williamson and Mulberry.

Gathering/Layering/Pleating

Gather up, gather up, the biggest technique used on the catwalk this Spring/Summer 2011 is gathering. The sophisticated and fashionable fold of materials creates an essence of movement and textures without garments looking over worked, so it comes to no surprise why this technique has been so heavily used throughout many collections.

This trend works with any length hemline whether the dress drapes down to the floor or the skirt grazes across the knee and every pleat, gather and fold generates femininity effortlessly.

Tommy Hilfiger, Chloe, Nichole Fahri and Alberta Ferretti are but a few of the designers that have mastered the feminine beauty of draping, pleats and gathers, which has made their Spring/Summer 2011 collections not only wonderfully soft, but also very interesting and appealing to look at.

Whereas, Burberry Prorsum, Gucci, Miu Miu and Jean Paul Gaultier has created a rock and roll, hard look by using the very same technique that has created divine and romantic silhouettes. Gucci, pleating black leather has created a top that is reminiscent of Ancient Roman armour. Whereas Jean Paul Gaultier seems to have stemmed inspiration for Madonna back in her Like a Virgin days.

Burberry Prorsum has only created a rock edge to the design through their styling. The dress itself is a beautiful piece, with gathers creating texture and the cut highlighting the sensuality a dress can achieve. With a black leather waist belt and a black leather, studded jacket the dress now oozes sex appeal, with a don’t mess with me feel.

With so many looks to create by wearing this simple technique it is no wonder that this trend will become one of the biggest to hit online boutiques and high street stores. Walking through the town, I already clocked Jasper Conran for Debenhams has a piece that looks very simpler to the Burberry dress.
