The Top Bra Picks ~ Essentials for your Lingerie Wardrobe

The Top Bra Picks ~ Essentials for your Lingerie Wardrobe

The root of a perfect closet, the bra receives the least amount of love but the most wear. This article of clothing is a must-have in a women’s wardrobe. Yet, most of us bra wearing gals only have around two to three different styles, when there’s such a lucrative market out there designed just for us. The amount of different options we have is actually quite astonishing. 

So get ready to look in those drawers to see what you actually have in your arsenal, and if not, hit those fitting rooms ASAP.

T-Shirt Bra

 

When wearing a tight shirt and the lines of your favourite lace bra shows, you’ll be scrambling for another option. So that’s where the t-shirt bra comes into play. The smooth texture of this brassier makes the perfect fit for an everyday wear, you’ll be wondering how you even lived without it before now. 

Push-Up Bra 

Designed with additional support- in the form of gel, foam, water and so on – the bottom portion of the bra lifts the breast, giving the illusion of cleavage where none existed before. It’s a definite must-have for smaller chested women, and also for women with fuller figures.

Balconette Bra 

Often referred to as the balcony bra, the balconette brassier lifts the bust to give a natural sexy look that can be worn day to day. It’s also universally flattering among breast types.

Strapless Bra 

Definitely the queen of bras everywhere, every women can benefit from at least one great strapless bra in her wardrobe. But trouble in the fitting rooms in well known. Depending on your bust size, the type of strapless bra varies. For smaller chested women, a bra with a wider back and gripping elastic to keep it in place is probably the best option. Or you’ll be pulling your bra up every ten minutes.

Bralette 

Better suited for smaller busted women (cups A to C to be safe), but can be worn by all breast sizes, the bralette is the most comfortable type of bra out there. It can be worn either during the day, at night, or even on your evening excursions. From lace to straps, this bra has the top number of options to choose from, so why not have numerous amounts of them in your underwear drawer. It is most definitely my all time favourite brassier on the market.

Sports Bra

Whether working out is part of your daily routine or not, you should have one (or ten) in your possession. Not only are they comfortable and stylish, they also provide the best type of support when you’re hitting the elliptical. You don’t have to worry about the straps falling off, or just being too sweaty for your daily bra (so pick one up today). But remember to shop for the sports bra that has the perfect amount of support for your chosen workout. A lighter impact one is best suited for yoga or Pilates, and a higher support bra for running or high-impact sports.

Backless Bra 

When wearing a backless dress or top, the right bra is key to having that perfect look. With many different options to choose from, you’ll be turning heads from how sexy you’ll be looking. 😉

Have fun bra shopping guys, and remember these suggestions to get the ultimate look for your bust.

Must-Have Jackets for Fall

Must-Have Jackets for Fall

Hey all.

Fall to me is the perfect weather, not too hot or too cold. The cooler temps means warming up in something fury or patterned and polished as what I’ve seen in the fall collection this year. There’s only one word to describe it: Seventies.

Keep reading to see the outerwear that you’ll be adding to your mental wish list. With an assortment like this, you’re bound to find something you’ll love for the later fall season.

Leather jacket.

8999fd5087397e2737678db8282b7562 007d47c95eb705b67ef4ec08ac3b9198

This staple jacket is definitely one of the top choices that never goes out of style. Possibly try something edgy this fall and opt for a bold colour, or a ombre design. I own a leather jacket from Danier and I absolutely love it, and will last forever.

Trench coat.

e6896cf04857b986ef44c55e908d2770 e6934c1d5d1b0c62864aecd8cf311c63

The trench coat has evolved thoroughly throughout the years; from different styles, lots of colours and patterns to choose from, you’ll never get bored with this jacket.

Corduroy jacket.

85421cce363b49541812cd127cb2d92f 19e7f7c7618cd3138e2d35b0704220ad

This Seventies favourite is posed for a serious comeback. Get ready to see corduroy on the streets again. Pair the jacket with a turtle neck to get the ultimate 2015 fall look. I absolutely love the purple coat, which is from Aritzia, and will be purchasing this item very soon.

Faux fur coat.

86d50c908a0351abf905cf44d5d2cf8f f40cd2ebef8dfa4d6ed9a2d7682e5a8d

I’ve never been all that keen towards fur all together, and real fur is just too expensive and to say off-putting to wear, so there are many different stores that sell faux fur, so don’t worry about that. But this coat is definitely in trend this season. So if you want something soft and comfortable that’s in style then this coat is for you. 🙂

Blazer.

c2a9fefc750f553c07d7b3f1abd34be6 3194e8a52ff0905744ad1fdecb7fd648

A suit jacket added to an outfit instantly changes the look. It can be worn casually, going to work, or even on a night out with your girlfriends.

Wrap coat.

c7098219bedfa435c53114a63346a0f1 db979957fa942e2cbf6d6bb94d44356c

When I first laid eyes on this jacket, it kind of looked a bit like a dressing gown to me. But it’s actually a really fashionable and comfortable coat to wear.

Poncho.

b28df61f9773780b8c54a66b5eb6e843 e874fe43266ceb0e656dc5d0159c7772

Ponchos are a must have piece for fall, you definitely will be chilling in style. With many different options out there, it’ll be hard not to purchase this trendy outerwear. 

Plaid.

a929c8df9bed4c8ea76762e0409746c5 aadfacc889fe58b88448768214efb67a

This preppy pattern makes a comeback for the fall 2015 collection. If your go to is a plain, simple-colour jacket then possibly be a little risqué with plaid. This jacket is eye-catching, but not over the top is design, it’s basically the perfect choice.

Military jacket. 

58326d537a73cc7987246d7cb75535f3 56910f7f69b9aa9fd0ff5041f0b93efa

The army jacket hasn’t gone anywhere, it’s still in style. What started out as a trend has reformed to a classic cover-up that can be incorporated into any style.

Vests. 

e2b6137b6de452044d7c70f01c83a893 293c3b1df7a267021e2f93af5eb463e9

Have fun shopping for fall jackets you guys, remember to think of this post when you do so. 🙂

10 Ways to Wear Ankle Boots

10 Ways to Wear Ankle Boots

Ankle boots is definitely the shoe in style this season. There are so many stylish and fun ones out there: wedge, heel, flat, laced, buckle and the list just goes on. I own a few pairs, and trust me, they are most positively worth the purchase. Fall is just around the corner, so to be the most chic girl out on the streets, keep reading to get those ankle booties on point.

Wear leggings with your ankle boots to get a flawless and comfy style. Try matching it with either a oversized sweater, a long cardigan, a kimono, a flannel shirt or a utility jacket to get that ultimate fall look.

00ef051c2f3bf67247fc92ee8580bb0a b99e277ac1dacfdc2ea396f891255988

Tuck your jeans into your ankle boots to get that long, lean leg line.

Rolled or cuffed jeans are a cute look with booties which allows a little bit of your ankle to show through.

5b62220b7ebe0b5a4675badf6795fbc4 1392d30fa01b3bb831c019297b13568c

The sock trend is my fav this fall. Yes it adds more bulk to your ankles, but layering over leggings, jeans, tights or basically any pants makes for a very stylish and cute look for the cooler season.

Even though the heat has gone doesn’t mean you have to pack away those shorts until next summer. Add tights under them to get that chic look.

Make a summer dress work for fall by pairing it with ankle boots, a jacket, tights and a scarf.

How to Get that Perfect Night Look

How to Get that Perfect Night Look

Finding the right look in terms of makeup, hair, clothes, shoes and accessories can be a difficult and daunting experience to endure. You probably spend most of the time standing in front of your closet trying on endless amounts of outfits, but everything you try on gets thrown in the no pile… well, am I right? I’ve definitely done this too many times to count. Lets not even get started matching it with the shoes and accessories.

Yes trying to find that outstandingly perfect look for yourself can be difficult, so in order to help you achieve that goal I’m going to tell you guys the steps I take to get ready. Also what my perfect night-out look is. 

Makeup

 3182b42954a5f8cbfdefd550fd499a7e 8f5dcf2f83f0956010977f14d8092e5e 9aeb6ed0ed253028f3cb9f6ac116e4bf

Before I do anything I always like to get my makeup done and out the way. I prefer to go for a more natural look. A brown smokey colour for my eye shadow, maybe add-on some black liquid eye-liner, mascara of course. And for my lips a nude lipstick. To know the exact products I use check out my other post – Ultimate Makeup Guide here.

Hair

    cb78de9cca0499d1c1dd026125dc0763 6a1cf5dc2831f66b80938dd42de01b20

I usually like to do something simple and pretty to my hair, either curling, straightening, or waving it. Sometimes I might add a braid in my bangs, a headband, or I might change the parting, but usually less is more.

Clothes

ea0e44be04feb2385fa6cc7093ca3ff7  804f71c94376c0145a4980eb90a363aa 17388a0e507cf40875e1c5d5f8762d78

Depending on where I go out my outfit is going to change according to the environment. If it’s a bar or a house party I would usually put on a nice pair of high-waisted jeans and a pretty top, one of my favourite casual dresses, or a little skirt and a crop top. If a club is the choice of the night a little tight dress, or a high-waisted skirt with a crop top is the go to outfit.

Accessories

fa25bc3a1f85931b055f710297d5b5c6 a5bdb23784321ea80911cb892d4a7be3 6f5a2edaefadb668c519724fefb53488

I’m in love with jewellery so I always have some form of bling on at all times. Big earrings, long necklaces, and a bunch of bracelets are my fav. I don’t usually wear rings but they’re also insanely fashionable. Basically any boho jewellery is my top pick for a night out.  (BTW owl earrings are my absolute fav).

Shoes

05820453c8cb227fef00ff36889da299 2d4bc3f40ea023cc5481bd57fc910aef ec6ffaf26cfc0716a8501f938033ea2b

If it’s a casual night a pair of my boots works perfectly, or a pair of flats. Or if the night calls for a more fancy look then a pair of pumps or my booty heels.

Coat

741608d4f2a4e047969d8e2f39653f3d f14_01_005_39686_1274_on_af

Depending on the weather a coat is optional. For the fall I’d wear either my leather jacket or just a long sweater. For the winter my Aritzia Babaton Pearce Wool Coat is definitely the pick.

Bag

45c61c752964c3a70fc2082a03061107 ea14b9509f0025253b32bd6422edf94a

My two options for a purse is either my leather back-pack, or one of my little leather bags that goes over my shoulder.

I hope this will help you guys plan that perfect look for the up-coming weekend. 🙂

Back to School Fall Fashion

Back to School Fall Fashion

Hey beauties.

Seeing as summer’s coming to a close, and with it shorts and tank tops, I thought I’d share my fall favourites that are a go to during the school season. It does not matter it you’re the type of person to roll out of bed ten minutes before class, or if you set your alarm early just to look presentable. There is something here for everyone.

Oversized Sweaters. 

29acede12badbbf2827278c623800712 e31da8ad463317cd7b2094ef9fc8413d

If you’re ever feeling like wearing an article of clothing that’s both comfy and stylish, then look no further than the oversized sweater. Match it with leggings and people won’t be able to take their eyes off you ;).

Tall Boots. 

0ac7936042be282d6b850b489169e2bc  b4c66d8826659dc0e362bb279b563345

These were my go to boot last fall, you can basically pair them with any outfit; leggings, jeans, a skirt, or a dress. You can even wear them in the spring tight-less with a skirt, it’s such a pretty look. Add socks with them in the fall to give the look that much more pizzazz.

Infinity Scarfs. 

fda068833b7ee5d3acf2e70a1f7ab65d

Whether it’s a windy fall day, or if the suns shining bright in the sky, adding an infinity scarf to your outfit is definitely going to transform that boring outfit to a creative one. They’re also so warm and cozy so you won’t even want to take it off.

Ted Baker London Shopper Bags.

When I was going to College I put my laptop, books and anything else I needed for school in this bag. I thought it was such a cool fashion statement to wear, and even better they’re not seen everywhere like the Michael Kors bags, and they’re like a quarter of the price.

Bohemian Jewellery. 

2f41cf3094c613b5c7869f266f79030b  f3dbde82e5476227d87136d9d321f191

I’m definitely a sucker for any type of jewellery, but by far the bohemian style is my absolute favourite. With the bold colours, feathers, arrows, dream catchers and so many other features it’s kinda hard not to fall in love with everything boho.

Roots Sweatpants. 

3a9ab33a1e185bd9a6d947f95afb9546 img-thing (2)

If your running late for class and need something quick and comfy to put on then Roots sweatpants are going to be your fav. The warm fabric is perfect for those cold fall nights, and even when needing to finish those long school papers, you’ll definitely be all cozy with these staple pants.

Trench Coats. 

Stylish-Cotton-Trench-Coat-by-Burberry-as-Branded-Collection-for-Women 356534470_009

I don’t own one myself at this moment in time, but this coat’s by far at the top of my fall shopping list. With it’s elegance and practical reasons, it’s no wonder it’s one of the top coat picks for the fall season.

Boyfriend Jeans. 

ed0c52fadfbd8c560241186210a2cdd8 d6c364bc3b8771bda99b865302d0e8e9

These looks fitted jeans are the talk of the fashion world. Pair them with shoes like keds or converses for an everyday look, or add boots with a heal if you’re looking for something fancier.

I hope you liked my list of fall favourites, have fun shopping you guys 🙂

My Top Three Summer Fashion Trends

My Top Three Summer Fashion Trends

Summer is not complete without the ultimate fashion guide, with bohemian style and bold colours displaying out on the streets, it’s hard not to have your best-loved picks.

So here are my top three fashion trends I can’t live without this season.

1. Jogger pants.

31ccba2d7790616e57d97713bb98fa4d

This new type of pant is probably the most comfortable styles I’ve ever worn, with their light fabric it is the perfect fit for a typical summer day. They can be purchased in all different kinds of colours and prints, and worn with a crop top and little booty heals is the ultimate combination. These are definitely a go to for my summer look.

2. Crop tops.

173146-Floral-Crop-Tops

Crop tops are still in season in 2015. So to get creative try looking for a bra-style crop or a t-shirt style crop. Add in patterns, lace or any other look you see in stores. Pair them with high-waisted shorts, skirts, or even jogger pants to get the most charming look possible. This is my go to shirt for a hot summers day.

3. Jada dress – Brandy Melville.

20f3f32ba992e0dc29ba610f330487c1

This is the prettiest, sexiest, and most comfortable dress that has ever reached my closest. The open back it adds to the look, and it also comes in many different patterns so you’ll never get bored. Match it with either heals for a night-out or sandals for a casual look. The Jada dress is the best pick for those humid muggy days.

Shopping is just one thing I absolutely love to do, I seriously feel like I have a little bit of an addiction. But how can I resist these summer outfits?

What are your top three summer trends for 2015?

Till next time…
