The Kitten Heel back again!

They are back!! and are called kitten heels and those heels are comfortable and practical.  They are turning up all over the place.  Kitten heel or low-heeled shoes are a life saver for those who lack balance and grace, but would still like a little boost in terms of height.

A Kitten heel is a short, slender heel, usually from 3.5 centimeters (1.5 inches) to 4.75 centimeters (1.75 inches) high with a slight curve setting the heel in from the edge of the shoe. The style was popularized by Audery Hepburn, and are the best friends of women working outside the home all day.  Kitten heels are probably the most controversial of all shoe styles, due to their demure height. Its Difficult to remain neutral as it is the classic “love 'em or hate 'em” trend.  a lot of peopl "can’t walk in them" and think they ugly and should be banned.  It shouldn't matter what people think about them, if you like them, rock them!

The height of some these heels nowadays is absolutely absurd, you can hardly stand in them yet alone walk in them. The Kitten heels, fashionable elegance, without the pain little heel still enables maximum stomping and running for buses, and errands. kitten heels are the perfect compromise for women who want to look elegant and sexy without the pain of four-inch dominatrix stilettos.

Kitten heels are safer and more comfortable to walk in than a normal high heel, classic and versatile and They come in a range of fun colours and cute prints.  Wear kitten heels with a well-cut trouser or chic, pleated skirt. Or Wear kitten heels with jeans, tights, a knee-length skirt. Kitten heels look best with pencil skirts. Try kitten heels with a dress. Select kitten heels with pointed toes and no decoration for the sleekest look.  Avoid black pumps with ankle straps because they cut off the leg line and make petites look shorter.  Keep your look ladylike and classy!

Studs and Spikes – Fashion Trends

I love spikes, they’re everywhere!  and have become a popular fashion trend over the past year and will give you an instant edge!  spikes have now made their way onto shoes, clothes, jewelry, and mobile devices!  From tiny hints to full-on stud and spike overload.

It’s amazing how a simple outfit can change just by adding a few spikes, whether they’re on denim or leather, bracelets, collars or on a little clutch bag.
Less is more with this trend, too much can make you look less sexy/naughty and more….mmm…butch??

Metal hardware is all over the runways, typically in the form of studs, spikes, and grommets. The coolest part about this trend: you don't have to be a tough girl covered in piercings and tattoos to wear studs and spikes. Studs can be uber-edgy, slightly sweet, casual, or dressy, depending on how you play them.
A bedazzled shirt may not be what you are looking for. Adding subtle touches of spikes and studs while  accessorizing is a great way to wear the trend, without making it your look’s focal point.

Go for denim. Leather is the classic tough-girl material, but if don't like the leather look, denim is just as fabulous when studded.

Mix your metallics. There's a myth out there that you can't mix metallics, but it's untrue. Mix silver and gold studs for a cool effect.

Toughen up a girly outfit. Studs add an edgy appeal to girly pieces like hair bows, pink pumps, or a chiffon skirt.

Chambray for Women - How to wear it and street style inspiration

What is Chambray?
Chambray and Fashion?

It  looks like denim, feels like cotton, and hangs like linen.  Chambray is a linen-finished gingham cloth with a white weft (across) and a coloured warp (down).  The coloured warp is usually blue (which is partly why we think denim), but it doesn't have to be, it is also produced in white and red, as well as yarn-dye woven prints.  . Although chambray is primarily a lightweight fabric, it is also made in heavier weights for fall.

Also by adding Lycra/spandex is blended into the chambray fabric content to produce stretch chambray.  Chambray is a plain weave fabric, and is weaved using a more basic technique.  Chambray tends to be a thinner material, moves a lot easier, and is much better suited for the summer/autumn seasons

Dress it up or dress it down, button it up,  tie it up or try it as a bathing suit cover up this Spring/summer.  It’s both classic and trendy at the same time, and provides a refreshing update to most outfits. 

Chambray Shirts are the most versatile and fool-proof piece a girl could own, you could pair it with anything and everything...maybe skirts, denims, shorts and be ready for a pulled-together look in seconds. 

There are tons of skirt options available as well as Chambray dresses which are also very popular.  The best thing about them? They go with any colour. Seriously. Besides, chambray skirts and dresses are dressier, classier, and all around more stylish.

Pair with your favourite skinnies for a classic look that is very in at the moment or Top a maxi-dress with a chambray blouse in place of a cardigan for a completely new look.
update that good ol’ sundress by finishing off the look with a chambray top, try leaving the top either unbuttoned and loose or tied at the waist.  Instant update!

If you’re unsure about the chambray trend, or if you want to try it in a way that’s really different from how everyone else will be wearing it, consider a chambray accessory or non-basic item such as a statement blazer. You’ll immediately score fashionista status by being both on-trend and unconventional.  Everyone can wear it, any way, almost anywhere.

Trend: The White Blazer

I love this trend, it is without question, a crisp white blazer is Spring's answer to Fall's essential leather jacket.  With white being a strong trend this season, the white blazer is ready for its spotlight!
The white blazer can turn down the intense contrasts, and add a crisp touch to an outfit.

Wear a White Blazer with gem tones, neutrals, and animal or other prints.  Or Use a White Blazer to create a backdrop to showcase texture like prints, leather, rouching, and pleating. Play with layering and wear a tunic and skinny jeans, or colour block with a rich toned blouse and skirt. 
Whether it’s for day, work, or evening, a White Blazer can pull an outfit together.

Pair a white blazer with a whimsical Spring dress for an effortlessly pulled-together outfit or the blazer-and-shorts look works perfectly on both petites and tall girls.  The Structure of the blazer really balances the feminism, softness, and casual vibe of floral pieces. By adding another print like the snake skin pumps, the contrast between the two different materials, you can create a fun, modern look. 

for those who think floral is too girly, and want to try something sexy. You can pair white blazer with animal prints!  The pure and clean white blazer makes the wild and sexy print dress so stylish. Keep the colour palette neutral, like black and white, then add a bold coloured bag to brighten up the whole look.

Instead of the usual LBD, try out a blazer and jumpsuit for your next party. The black-and-white contrast demands attention.

A white blazer looks amazing paired with pastels. Style this one with a light skirt, lemon-yellow sweatshirt, and tough accessories for a cunning ladylike look.
A blazer can instantly add polish to a pair of jeans. Create a casual, yet sharp look with a white blazer, flared jeans, a flowy silk top, and pointy-toe pumps.  Perfect for a casual work environment or your next lunch date.

wear white on white. This is one of my favorite pairing.  It looks sweet,elegant yet modern and chic.
