Trends in Bottom Wear 2012

If your wardrobe still has just blue jeans as bottom wear, then girl you need a style check! Fashion is ever changing and you’ve got to keep yourself updated if you don’t want to look like you’re from the previous generation. Jeans will always remain our favourite, but it’s time you added a few other stuffs to your closet. Here’s a list..

Palazzo Pants

These are long trousers with extremely wide legs flaring out from the waist. Palazzo pants were very popular in the 40’s and 60’s and came back with a bang on this year’s spring-summer runaways. Be in solid shades or pretty prints, palazzo pants are very comfortable and versatile –they cover up as well as flaunt, as and when the need be.

Cigarette Trousers

Cigarette trousers are body hugging trousers that are often high waisted and cropped at the ankle. Mostly tailored in cotton and elastane, cigarette pants give a sleek look. If you’re blessed with an hourglass shape then this should be on your immediate shopping list.

Pencil skirts

This slim fitting skirt with narrow cut waist seems to be a hit with the woman of power. Sleek, stylish and classy, pencil skirts accentuate your waistline and pelvis. There maybe variations in length but the perfect size is the one that ends in the knee. Pencil skirts often come with interesting twists like the peplum waist.

High waist skirts

These skirts are worn from the mid riff and end in the thigh giving the effect of a short skirt, but more sophisticated by far. Unlike pencil skirts, these flare from the waist. High waisted skirts look extremely classy when paired with cropped jackets.

Pastel jeans

Well I never said you should abandon your jeans did I? Only this time when you stock up on jeans, get a couple of pastel shade ones. Think powder pink or lilac or mint green.

Boyfriend Shorts

A new hit among the people who like to keep it short –the boyfriend shorts add an androgynous twist to a feminine style. Boyfriend shorts extend till the knee and the cut is very similar to men’s shorts.

Cowl trousers

Cowl trousers or Dhoti pants are loose at the top and tighten as they go down. Wear these trousers to incorporate an ethnic element in your look.

Fashion Trends For Men And Women In Their Thirties

Being in 30’s has its own perks. You have been working for sometime, you have earned respect, you know how the world works and you have evolved. At the same time you’re youthful, you’re fun loving and you are determined to live life. Writer’s Pad brings you a few tips to let that maturity, sophistication and youthfulness of age flow in the way you dress.

 

MEN

You are sophisticated and earning. You’re finally a man! But for most men, by the time they are thirty, they have already settled in a quintessential black and grey corporate look and they refuse to think beyond that. First of all, change that thought. You’re still very young and you’re allowed to bring out that liveliness with some colour.

Office wear

You already know the value of suits. But do you know the value of ties and waistcoats? A silken tie in a complementing shade can add some much needed colour to your black suit. Waistcoats look very smart, hot actually! When it comes to suits, explore colours like navy and cream too. All we say is wear different colours or at least different shades of the same colour, people shouldn’t think you’re wearing the same thing everyday.

Formal occasions

Nothing beats a tuxedo. This apparel can take you from drab to fab in seconds. Every woman would agree that a man looks best in his tux. In formal events, you’ll have to abide by the dress code if there’s one. If not, then play with colours like mint green or periwinkle. Stick to lighter shades for the day and plunge into darkness at night.

Casual day

You don’t have to slip into baggy daddy jeans. Not yet. Wear sweatshirts, t-shirts, leather jackets…don’t stick polo necks only. Cargos and casual trousers that fit properly are good options. Loose jeans are cool but baggy jeans are not.

WOMEN

You’re beautiful, you’re attractive, you’re the PYT! Almost everything will look good on you, so make the fullest of this advantage.

 

Office Wear:

Pencil skirts, tuxedo jackets or cropped jackets, solid coloured silken tunics, shirts and trousers…. all of this will work. Just don’t forget to accessorize with chic statement necklaces and enviable hand bags.

Formal events:

Cocktail dresses and saris look very elegant. Short dresses look gorgeous too; just make sure they are not too short. Elegance and class is what you should be focusing on and a short dress that’s too short will mar it all. Again, don’t forget to wear your heels and don’t forget to carry a nice evening clutch.

Dressing up well is important because it makes good impression and will help you to keep climbing the ladder of success. The best thing about being thirty is that you can actually afford all the beautiful things in the fashion world. So sometimes do pamper yourself with a big label accessory or clothing. It’ll cost a pretty penny, but it will be worth it.
