For you to successfully wear frills, you should know how they affect the human eye. Frills are eye-catching, and what better way to flaunt them than by making this the core of your look. If you plan to wear frills, capitalize on its grandeur, and avoid exaggerating on accessories.

Unlike other fashion garments such as bomber jackets or knee-high boots, frills do not need any type of assistance. The good thing about wearing frills is how it becomes the main focus of your wardrobe. You can cut costs in picking accessories, pair it up with glaring footwear, or wear it with your simplest ripped denims.

Frills can also come in different colors. One tip that fashion experts suggest is to stay within the limits of plain colors, and never pick an outfit with frills with patterns and designs. It is a common mistake to overstate things, so investing in printed frills is not smart at all.

Also, be adventurous when mixing colors as it will make the ensemble stronger. Keep it tidy by wearing one-piece accessories, and opt for low-key items such as a simple necklace or a metal watch.

Beyonce Empowers Everyone through her Latest Merchandise with Jillian Mercado  

fash10

 

The world of fashion gives opportunities for everyone to grow, shine and be famous as long as they have the right mindset and attitude. The next big thing in fashion designing does not require a degree in fashion from Paris, or your next idol gliding through the catwalk who never really thought of modeling a few years back. In fashion, it is everyone’s ball game, and luckily, the people have come to embrace it wholeheartedly.

We have seen a lot of collaborations among fashion companies and those outside the fashion realm such as singers, Hollywood actors and everyone deemed fit for a successful partnership. Not surprisingly, this melding of minds is very appealing to the market, and they are not close to ending even in the next few decades.

Just recently, singing supernova Beyonce entered the fashion scene by putting up her own clothing line, and as expected, it blew out of proportions in a positive manner.

fash11

Beyonce is one of the strongest purveyors of feminism and empowering women. With her latest collection circling online, many fashion analysts have applauded the singer’s latest move to promote her recent clothing venture. Enlisted as Beyonce’s latest model and style ambassadress is a fashion blogger named Jillian Mercado, and her story is way out of the ordinary.

Mercado is diagnosed with muscular dystrophy, 28 years old and is a known prolific blogger, opening up the information gateway for her followers to be aware of the latest in fashion. Choosing Jillian Mercado as Beyonce’s model warmed the hearts and uplifted the spirits of people with disability, as they can dream as much as they want without any hesitations.

fash12

Instagram welcomed the news directly from Jillian Mercado’s official account, and she mentioned how grateful she was to be a part of Beyonce’s retail collection. Just like how any typical model should be treated, Mercado was given full-blown attention the way it should be.

Rocking it with feisty hair and make-up, the fashion blogger transcended the barriers of her own wheelchair and showed the entire planet how beautiful can she be despite her disability. Furthermore, Jillian Mercado’s involvement as a fashion blogger strengthened this venture for both her and Beyonce’s party as credibility is established significantly.

MilkMade presentations Highland, Pyer Moss and Rochambeau

The merchandise campaign is inspired from Beyonce’s latest hit tracks 7/11 and Formation, with their lyrics used as core prints of the clothing ensemble. Fans can cap different garments such as sweatshirts, hats and T-shirts, plastered with the song’s lyrics, making it stand out from your conventional ready-to-wear ensembles.

Beyonce’s latest fashion venture is now readily available online, and revels in Jillian Mercado’s participation to ensure that this collection will be a huge success.

Women and the Revolution of Cheek Tints

fash3

Innovation keeps the fashion industry lively. With all the talent surrounding this very intrinsic field, it is no surprise that things are always fresh. We have all been witness to how fashion kept up to its tagline of always moving forward, and the world of style and design is compelled to drive the human race into being better versions of themselves.

Some of the trends that have undergone revamps are the coiled chokers, bubblenails, palazzo pants, metal hair and even the iconic Chuck Taylors that have upgraded after a century. The thing that girls from all over the planet are currently addicted to is the very convenience that this make-up tool is giving them. Behold the magic and purpose that cheek tints have to offer.

fash1

As always, women are selective when it comes to how they apply make-up on a daily basis. Some have followed a structured mantra on how to enhance their bland face into a smoking, hot look. From the arched eyebrows to the very shade of their eye shadows, women always strive to attain the best.

Cheek tints are the best methods in beautifully polishing a woman’s over-all look in a swish, resulting to plump lips with the combination of flushed cheeks. Cheek tints are meant to be for the lips but women have upgraded it to a cheek stain to aid them when they’re in a rush and want to look all made-up in a jiffy.

Usually coming in small bottles, these elixirs have found their way into the purses of every living woman and are now a staple for women on the go. Dubbed as one of the trickiest parts of applying makeup, cheek tints really do require a set of skills to end up with godly facial elegance.

As how experts have put it, you must first be aware of what shade is best paired with your facial skin tone. As a rule of thumb, the shade must be tested first before impulsively buying by doing the accurate wrist test. Most of the cheek tints available in the market are darker when bottled so putting a small drop of it on your wrist won’t be that much of a hassle.

fash2

Getting your skin prepared before cheek tint application is suggested to get a well-toned finish. Get your trusty cleanser to eliminate dead skin cells and to enrich your skin tone. Once done, decide first if you’d go for a liquid or powder foundation. If you decided to choose the former, then evenly apply it first onto your whole face with the inclusion of the neck before getting your cheek tint handy. If you prefer loose powder, do the opposite and apply the cheek stain first.

fash4

Once ready, dab your cheek tint on your pointer finger and immediately spread it out on both cheeks. One important tip is to smile widely during the cheek tint application, or else you’ll look clownish. Smiling will stretch your facial skin and minimize concentration of the stain. Do it upward and fast. You don’t want the stain drying up on you, so you should hasten the application. If you mistakenly put on too much cheek tint, lighten the dark area with a little foundation.

The Dawn of Trendy Guys Sporting Gray Hair

 

fash1

With men being more involved in style and fashion, they sometimes contribute tips, tricks and trends that they know will help other men in surviving this very demanding turf. Men are now open to trying things that seem to stray away from the conventional. You can see men now donning colorful shirts in all possible hues, or notice them getting a little bit pickier with the types of shoes they should be wearing in a very important business activity.

Men are now more willing to go on a shopping shindig. There are even moments when they surpass the judgment of the opposite sex because it is in their nature to pick only the best. Speaking of which, they are now in control of how they inject fashion into their lives and they are consciously on the move to bring about shocking trends, say for example, the advent of men wearing gray hair.

fash2

Okay, so we all know that sooner or later all men would definitely have a gray patch of hair, but some fashion enthusiasts have taken it to the next level and dyed their hair in this palette as soon as they could. More and more men have come to embrace the idea of sporting a gray mane, despite the possible mockery and ridicule.

Gray hair is a trend that is slowly catching fire, and with all the Hollywood celebrities donning it now in public, hordes of men have personally asked this of their hairstylists. Many fashion experts have come to connote that gray hair can make a man look more ‘rugged’, adding an air of masculinity and roughness. We can remember Brad Pitt growing a gray beard and all the girls went gaga over this bold fashion move.

fash3

Also, fashion enthusiasts have come to discover that men with gray hair look more pumped-up visually especially when compared to their previous hair color. While it is more associated with older men, gray hair would definitely look astonishing when worn by a younger guy.

Grey hair exudes the bravado every man should possess, and it adds sexiness to any man who has the confidence to work it. Also, this hue is downright would portray the look of suave and sophistication, with George Clooney as the best example.

fash4

Some huge names in the world of fashion and modeling like Laurence Nicotras and Michael Justin have long been wearing this hue atop their heads and they have been commended for being unique especially during photoshoots. Men should also understand that since gray hair is associated with age, this channels the aura of maturity and utter confidence when worn correctly.

Some other A-listers who have undergone this transformation include Simon Cowell, Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, Matt LeBlanc and MTV’s Max Joseph. Lastly, having your hair in gray and proudly wearing it is a sign that embracing aging wouldn’t be that difficult when the time comes, especially if it involves it looking your best.

Women and the Dominion of Homochromatic Styling

fash1Colors have always played an essential role in the world of fashion. Without color, dresses and tops would be boring and we would all be doomed to look the same. Fashion and time have put almost all of the known hues onto prints and garments, and we must all agree that the color variations make an ensemble more appealing to the eyes.

We have also been acquainted with how mixing and matching of colors is key to a great look and the skill of pairing one color to the next is such an arduous task that many have mastered at this point in time. We are all for an outfit that would stand out, and we know that one way to do it is by appropriately picking the right combinations of bold and light hues, or the visually-pleasing union of contrast.

But have you ever delved into a style that pegs on monochromatic tones? Is there a chance to pull-off an outfit that is of the same hue without looking odd or outdated?

fash2

Monochromatic is the use of one core color or hue, no matter how many garments are involved in the ensemble. Dressing from top to bottom with the same color is difficult to some and below are nuggets of information you need to consider to successfully sport the monochromatic look.

First, you must make up your mind and decide on what color you would peg on to finish a clean, overall look. You need to check your closet to ensure that all garments needed or your envisioned ensemble are present and within reach. Remember that the monochromatic look must include a single hue, and there shouldn’t be any lurking mishap in color choice.

For a monochromatic look, the shades shouldn’t always be the same as light and dark versions of it would make your ensemble a bit more interesting. For example, if you’d go for the color blue, you can match shades of blue such as royal, navy and dark to complete the whole ensemble. Don’t be afraid to take risks when it comes to the shades for as long as it looks complementing, then you’re doing it the right way.

fash3

In monochromatic fashion, mixes of textures and layers are quite essential. The texture of the garments used must be diverse since this is where styling comes in handy. Wear a plaid skirt under a smooth tank top to display variation amid the color singularity. Put the darker shades on the things you want to conceal and allocate lightly-colored garments on your body assets.

Experimentation is crucial in giving the look a proper finish and it’s up to you on how you’d manage making matches. Accessorizing with bags that are catchy and loud would also give you a definitive mark because it breaks the monotony of the outfit.

fash4

Remember that getting the monochromatic look is also an optical illusion since the eyes would see a long-lined silhouette, which in effect would make you look slimmer and taller than you actually are.

Get vivid and loud colors such as yellow and orange on day-outs while the darker hues of violet, black and calm blue must be worn on formal events and functions. The line of reds can be carried-out effectively on casual night-outs or business meetings to exude and entice. Save the greens for a swift stroll to the cafe or for easy-breezy dinner dates.

It seemed as if the scouting process was snatched directly from a fairy tale, and this Fayetteville-local is now on his way to stardom that only Calvin Klein can provide him.

Exposures were made to get Slaggert comfortable with modeling such as stints in German GQ Style and Italian Vogue, further enhancing his modeling capabilities for it to be perfect when he starred on his own print campaign with Calvin Klein.
