Tis the Season to be Blinging and Fabulous!

Bling I guarantee you wasn’t thinking of anything like this, when we stated “Tis the Season to be Blinging and Fabulous!” This may be just a bit over the top for some of you but think about it. From this point to the beginning of the year you’re going to be receiving truck loads of invitations, to some of the most fabulous and amazing parties and events!  Be it from your own private parties, the most outrageous party that your best friends give, the ever so modern and sleek cocktail-party or the Magnificent Winter Ball that the office throws every year we have you covered!  One question is going to be on your mind “What should I wear?” Get ready to raise your glasses high and to bring in another wonderful time looking ever so Fabulous, Classy or Whimsical you name it and we thought it!!

1st party: The ever so Fabulous Cocktail party which you know its going to be wonderful!  We thought we would give you a little bling to step out in and don’t worry if you have curves we are going to celebrate them right along with you!  Sequins is a girls best friend and it can always be played up or down.  This little number really says that you are ready to trip the night fantastic and it looks good on most body-types.  Its flirty and playful and it can be matched with a great little clutch or a handbag that adds that pop of color!

2nd party: Maybe you have to work and don’t have time to go home and change. Oh poor you what is a girl suppose to do? Here’s a idea that we came across.  Why not have that ever so perfect dress paired with a great little cardigan or boyfriend jacket and a kitten heel for work, but when the clock strikes 5 grab your perfect little tote which can be stashed at your office for the next day. Place in your tote-bag a pair of sheer stockings, fabulous pair of stilettos, hot little clutch some lovely drop diamond earrings and your off and running for a wonderful night out of dancing and celebrating!!

 3rd party: Your boyfriend/husband or significant other, has invited you to attend their companies party and you want to make a good impression on their co-workers/Boss.  Fellas you also want to look great on your ladies arm for this event because this is the statement of statements! You was also told that its not formal but it is dress to impress; well for our gentlemen, we have a few looks we think you will like to rock and for our ladies we know you will look good in these ideas that we have!  We thought maybe you would like to go a little old Hollywood with a pop of color or do a little faux fur jacket with a lovely little dress and sexy shoes!  Guy’s you take a note: old Hollywood works and everyone is attracted to a man in a good suit! Which ever you choose we know you will make a wonderful impression and give a statement to all those who are looking on.

P.S. if you’re the kind of girl who always wears your hair down try doing a little something different.  Do a very sexy and sleek up-do with a little flirty swooping bang.  Give the mystery to your eyes by doing a Smokey-eye and natural lips!  As they all say the eyes are the window to the soul and why not let it be shrouded in mystique (HOT).

4th party: Its the Formal Affair of Affairs! The who’s-who is going to be attending and you don’t want to disappoint your adoring hostess or host!  They have sent you an invitation to die for you know this is going to be something that everyone is going to be talking about for years to come! We thought you may want to go with something that is different and has the elegance and class that takes the breath of those who are in awe of you.  If you have beautiful long legs and want to show them just remember a little goes a long way.  Maybe you have a lovely toned back; let that be your signature and keep things simplistic, you don’t want a plunging neckline and back. If you have love d├ęcolletage (cleavage) make sure it isn’t to the point of being offensive or vulgar.  You always want to leave something for the imagination.

Last but surely not least its time to bring in the New Year! You are ready to dance, drink and celebrate with your friends, loved one or whomever, and you want to look GOURGEOUS doing it! Ladies don’t be scared of going short and sexy because this is all about having fun letting go and making new!  We choose a few looks from sexy, whimsical to flirty whatever you decide we know it won’t be wrong! if it is going to be cool out make sure your bring along a cute little bolero style jacket it will give that little something to your outfit!

Hot Fashion Trend for our Gentlemen

I know fellas you thought we forgot all about you guy’s. Never that we love you to much to forget about you all!  We saw a few hot trends this past season that we was hoping would reappear for this season and we are just so happy the one did. Which one is that you’re saying?  The HAT!!  This really got our full vote and we noticed that at the end of last season, that a lot of our gentlemen had taken notice of the hot R&B singer/producer/songwriter NeYo’s look, and started to sport the great Newsboy Fedora and we have to say he really put’s his own sexy style to this look!

NeYo, came out in such a major way with his album “Year of the Gentlemen” and he did just that he gave the okay back to men to be gentlemen.  If you think back to like the 40’s and 50’s men always had their lovely fedora’s on and just paired them with the right accessories or trench coat.  That made us start to think about others that have brought this look into the 21st century and have given it just that edge that all of our guy’s can rock. If you are more conservative, preppy or street there is a look just for you.  I was thinking that two fabulous actors that have very different styles are Brad Pitt and Ashton Kutcher.  Both of these guy’s have worn the Newsboy caps and they both give off two very different feels.

 When you see a guy wearing a hat sometime it gives just that little something to his outfit and also that edge that pushes him from hum-drum to more of a sexy image.  Even when a woman wears a hat it has some mystery to her, its just the same with a man.  How long did people want to know what LL Cool J looked like without a hat?  Every woman on the plant wanted to know if he was bald or did he have an odd shaped head it was something mad sexy about him and it still works for him!

Now that is a man who knows how to wear a hat! Wow! Anyway, we started think of other well known gentlemen that rock fedora’s and do it with such ease. This next gentlemen coined the phrase that he was bringing “sexy” back and it’s none other than Justin Timberlake (JT).  He has such a great sense of style and being that he has his own clothing line he really knows how to pair this look up. JT can give you the “hat” sexy or when he is rocking more of a casual preppy look which ever he decides to wear he always wears it well!

Now we think of the bad boys how would they rock this look? Most don’t realize that they have a whole other way of rocking this sexy but very stylish trend.  We thought about this and the gentlemen that came to mind had to be Eminem! He had the best way of wearing his Kangol and yes we said Kangol, there is nothing old or my father use to rock this at all.  Eminem brought the fresh style of this fedora company when he made his first appearance after being gone for so long at the MTV Music Awards! Eminem always rocks something very fashion forward be it his hair, clothing or now his hats!

Something very important that we want all of you gentlemen to be mindful of is, knowing your face shape and the size of your head when you’re selecting your hat.  Always make sure you purchase the correct size because you don’t want your hat to be too small or too big for your head.  You want to make sure that this perfect accessory is just that perfect

With that being stated we thought it was important to go over the 4 basic face shapes and what hats compliment each shape:

Round shaped face: To keep your head from looking like a perfect sphere, go for something asymmetrical with a high crown. Try slanting your hats forward and going for neat, clean styles to give your face more angles. That way people won't be tempted to use your head as a crystal ball. You don’t want to make yourself look like a basketball so this hat pictured here would be great for a gentlemen who has a fuller face and plump cheeks.

Oval shaped face: You oval face gents look good in almost any hat. Just make sure to pull the hat correctly over your forehead and tilt it on different sides. I don't have many tips for the oval faces because they can pull of so many great hats that it makes all jealous over their perfectly shaped faces.


Square Shaped Face: Go for a hat that has a wider brim… Go wide or go home is the best thing we can tell you.  You don’t want something with a stingy brim because it is going to make your face seem wider than it really is. Think of Brad Pitt because he has a square shaped face and always rocks a great wide brimmed hat

Long shaped face: You need sharp, clean styles more like Justin Timberlake. Wear it straight and forward to cut the length of your face.  Also, you should wear a wide brims with low crowns, hats that cover your forehead will also look sleek, stylish and mysterious.

We really enjoyed bringing this article to our gentlemen and we always want to make sure you gentlemen know what is in style and how to rock the look of the season.  Stay close guy’s cause we have more to come!
