Top 5 Things to Decide before Buying Sequin Bridesmaid Dresses

Your cousin’s wedding is knocking the door and you are still not done with your bridesmaid dress shopping? Don’t wait for the last minute. Check the theme of the wedding and buy a stunning dress that will accentuate your best features. Is it a glamorous theme? Go for sequin dresses.

It will not only reflect glitz and glamor but also complement the wedding theme. But before you start your shopping for sequin bridesmaid dresses, you need to decide a few things. Here are these –

  • Styles

The three most popular styles that go with sequin dresses are A-line, mermaid, and two pieces. A-line is the singular most flattering fit for every body type. A-line styles are fitted to one’s waist and then flare out gradually at the hem. The magic of this shape is that it can minimize in the midsection, thighs, hips, and draw attention to the bust. On the other hand, a mermaid style is one that fits closely to the body through the hips and torso, and then finishes out in a flare to the floor, and gives a dramatic mermaid look. And tow-pieces is a fun and flirty way to style one’s outfit without showing much skin. Choose the style that goes with your figure and preferences.

  • Neckline

The next thing that you should focus on is the neckline of the dress. Do you want to choose a neckline that will elongate your torso and make you look tall and slim? Then, the universal favorite V-neckline will be the right fit for you. But if you prefer a traditional neckline that has a feminine and romantic feature, then go for a sweetheart neckline. But as it comes with a gentle dip in the center, you should check whether you are comfortable in this style before finalizing it. Besides, you can also add a touch of style to your sequin dress with off-the-shoulder neckline. Glamorous and modern, this neckline falls parallel to the shoulder line and draws focus to the neck and shoulder area. You can also choose spaghetti straps or high-neck. 

  • Fabric

The fabric you choose has a huge impact on the overall effect of how you look in a sequin dress. The same color looks different in two different fabrics. Chiffon is a lightweight and flowing fabric that is good for styles with a lot of draping and gives a feminine look to the wearer. With lace, you will get a graceful look. This delicate fabric is mainly used as an overlay or detail. You can also go for tulle that looks like netting and can incorporate lace designs, as well. You have many more fabric options to choose from. Pick the one that will turn you into a shimmering diva.

  • Sleeves

Once you are done with style, neckline, and fabric, the next thing you need to check is various sleeve options that go with sequin dresses. Want to go bold? Go sleeveless. Want to conceal the imperfections of your hand? Choose long sleeves. Do you prefer a blend of trend and tradition in your dress sleeve? Choose short sleeves. Besides, you can show off your beautiful shoulders and secure a fit and elegant look with spaghetti sleeves and ensure a chic and trendy look with a cap sleeve.

  • Price

Last but not the least, you need to consider the price and decide the budget for a sequin bridesmaid dress. The most stylish and gorgeous dress will catch your attention and you would like to have it, but if the price is sky-high, then it is better not to opt for this. Anything that can create a hole in your pocket is not something that you should buy. So, it is better to set a price and abide by this when buying a dress.

Once you have decided on the above-mentioned things, opt for a reputable bridal store that also offers long, mermaid, and gold bridesmaid dresses along with sequin dresses, and buy the right dress that will make you an attention-grabbing look on your cousin’s wedding.

Celeb Style Critique feat. Jessica Alba & Drew Barrymore

Due to the overwhelmingly positive response to the last A Guy’s Opinion, featuring WWWD’s favourite reality television producer (and internationally renowned air-guitarist), Michael, 29, we thought we’d bring him back for more commentary. Read on for his insightful and droll opinions on celebrity street style.

1. Jessica Alba

Does she look bipolar or is it just me? The torso flirts, “Casual can be synonymous with hot. All it takes is nonchalantly pulling back your hair to better show off that lovely smile and pairing it with a black vintage t-shirt brazenly displaying the world’s greatest rock band while not clashing with a brown leather coat.” Then out of nowhere, the waist down screams, “I’m a 12-year-old girl from the Pacific Palisades. Deal with it!” I find this one so baffling, I’m contacting the National Institute of Mental Health for answers.

2. Drew Barrymore

Whenever I go to New York City, I fall in love every city block. This equation explains why: say “s” is cute girl (a red-head to boot!), “e” is a classic, head to toe black ensemble and “xy” is an unexpected touch of stylistic brilliance (in this case, white Gucci sunglasses and a beret). Then, s+e+xy=instant heartbreak. See how fun math can be? However, if that is a neon striped dress over her black pants, I take everything back and will go on a hunger strike until the dreaded ‘Hey everybody, I have a dress AND pants on’ look is finally shot “execution style” in a dark alley and a voodoo priest places a curse on its grave to ensure it will never resurface again. And yes, if you must know, I am going to therapy for my temper’.

3. Mischa Barton

The letter in the envelope reads as follows:

Dear Current You,

This is a serious message from Future You. DO NOT go out of the house today. TRUST ME. I know you think your beige shorts with suspenders are progressive, and while shorts can be hot and even suspender shorts can be rocked well, your choice will only make babies cry and people ask you why you stayed neutral during WWII. Partially it’s the color, partially it’s the shorts’ length, but mainly it’s the fact that you decided to combine your quasi-lederhosen with a bland top and a hat that Grandpappy decided in 1973 was ‘too boring for words.’

Kisses, Future You

P.S. Outfits like these are why we were killed off The O.C.

4. Victoria Beckham

For sure, this is “street style,” but it is usually a type of “street style” associated with women who get you 6 months in lockdown and your own colony of pubic lice as a parting gift. My feeling is if you have fur, leather, leopard print, and Botox all in the same look, you are saying, ‘Man, I miss those days working for Heidi Fleiss.’ Though I will admit, the dress is flattering and not that bad by itself.

Men’s fashion- Trends vs. Style

Both the genders feel the pressure often to keep their cupboard in season and up to date, but when it comes to the fashion related to men often they feel less complicated. For women and men alike of course, fashion choices and outfits can be equally intricate and today there are a couple of trendy things which can turn fashion faux pas quickly. Men’s fashion on the contrary has a couple of staple items that will stay forever. A man will always look fashionable dressed in a superior quality, tailored suit. Select classic cuts, fabrics and colors and classic men bracelets  of steel and leather and they will never appear out-of-place. 

Classic male’s fashion is always timeless 

In fact the suit of the classic males over the years has barely changed. There are really a lot of varieties for various occasions, yet each is common in its pursuit of a sharp and smart look for the particular wearer. A striking quality regarding men’s classic fashion is that this is both effortlessly cool and stylish. Any gentleman for that matter who is well groomed will look at his sharpest always dressed in a well-tailored suit. This indeed is a testament truly to the design of this clothing. In fact a suit is worn to work and this applies to many careers owing to the professional feel and look that it offers to the wearer thereby instilling trust and respect. A suit equally will be worn for a lot of occasions like a tuxedo in a black-tie event. It is this incredible versatility which allows suits in being worn in just every occasion and this is what gives suits its permanent place and timeless edge in men’s fashion. 

Modern trends in men’s classic fashion

While the classic styles of men will not be replaced ever, but it is truly interesting to consider that shifts in male fashion trends have actually brought specific classic garments once again back into fashion. Especially the immense popularity of vintage attires has brought back different classic styles into the wardrobes of men like the dandy gentleman. The term dandy is utilized for referring to males that dress up in classic and extravagant ways, putting significance on appearance and performing in a manner that is refined. The trend for over the top classic fashion is evident from events like the Tweeted Run as to where both the genders of every age dress notably in the Victorian style attire while taking to the roads on vintage bicycles and with maximum males sporting impeccable mustaches. And this is merely one of the different examples of evidence that display the resurgence of this style. While online there is a lot of blogs that throw light on the gentlemanly style like the Dandyism and the Dandy Project along with the whole website like the “Art of Manliness” committed to offer content on classic fashion and grooming for men. 

To conclude, it may be stated that while specific aspects of men’s classic  fashion necklace  can actually be brought back like new trends, but the fundamental attires which are based on indeed will never go out of fashion.

Top 5 Summer Fashion Trends of 2015

Fashion is every woman’s right, right? Irrespective of age and body type, every girl or woman will find something that flatters her body as well as in tune with fashion trends of the season. The summer of 2015 is right round the corner. 

So it is only obvious that this article will help you to get a grip on the existing summer trends that will not only help you look good but fell great too. Here are the top five summer trends that you need to watch out for.

  1. The colour white – Of course, what else can you think of when it comes to summer. Dark hues out, white and other light shades in. White that can be worn from top to toe is given a big nod by designers this year as one of the most wearable fashion trends. White tends to appear every now and then every summer. Flaunt your summer wardrobe with an edgy twist that has finer details of eyelets as well as lace.
  • Cool it with coral – Corals are cooler tones compared to warmer burgundies, maroons and purples that are very wintery. Thus, corals make “hot” (no pun intended) favourite fashion trends for the summer season. Especially if you want to make a departure from cooler tones though they are always welcome in the hot summer months. Instead of being head to toe coral, pair a coral trendy shirt with a pair of white trousers and vice versa. Or you can wear a pair of coral toned shoes to add a dash of much needed colour to cooler or neutral tones.
  • Say it with flowers – Flowers and summer goes hand in hand so why not bring them to your wardrobe as well. Even fauna prints such as leopard and snake prints look great in terms of summer fashion trends. For those tomboy lasses, prints that include palm trees and fronds will impart less of a girly girl image and at the same time keep you in tune with the existing flora and fauna trend. Wear it in your t-shirts, shirts and jumpsuits.
  • Ruffle it up – Give your summer wardrobe this year an edgy twist with ruffles with geometric patterns. Carry this look to your office by having ruffled sleeves or a hemline with a ruffled pattern. Remember, the look should not be a head to toe ruffled look and include smaller ruffle details. 
  • Painted canvas – Last but not the least of the existing summer fashion trends is a plethora of colours on your wardrobe that looks like a painted canvas with brush strokes. Summer is all about a riot of colours everywhere. This particular summer fashion trend allows you to wear all the summery colours at once but without looking too overwhelming.

What’s more, you will find it very easy to match this particular trend with almost anything that you have in your wardrobe too. Pick any top or blouse with brush stroke or new styles of open cup lingerie  from your wardrobe and team it with a neutral skirt or trousers and vice versa. Even a nice pairs of stilettos with brush stroke prints will do the trick for you.
