Main women’s passions

Everyone knows the greatest women’s passions: handbags and shoes. Why almost every woman never gets enough handbags and shoes? Because of rapidly changing fashion trends? Maybe, but why then a woman dreams to wear everyday a new bag? I think it is because every women incredibly love to change her appearance everyday. I don’t find it something sinful. Sometimes life seems to be so boring when, for example, you work in a small office and don’t see the world most of the time, so the changes in your appearance make your life brighter and more interesting. Of course I do not mean something like changing your hair color from orange to blue in one week, but the best way to look different without spending too much money, of course, is accessorizing. I know that some designer accessories are very expensive and only about 5% of women can afford it. But as I said previously, there is an option- replica clothing, or middle segment brands that provide a wide range of similar accessories. Do not deprive yourself from changes! We live only once, just imagine how it would be, if you are only dreaming of designer bag which you can’t afford, and probably save money a year to buy it, and then, when you finally have the necessary money sum, you eventually find yourself in love with other bag, or even a number of different and quite expensive bags. I am actually for quality over quantity. But high quality replica can be really qualitative. Also there are some young designers who preserve quality standards to gain their place in high fashion, yet the prices of their designs are much cheaper. Don’t limit yourself. Enjoy your changes, and your life is going to change for the better too.

Jewelry trends for spring 2011

Jewelry, Trends | February 22, 2011


bright feather+ beads braided Dior necklace from spring-summer 2011 collection

A question about wearing or not wearing jewels is not relevant for modern fashionista, because the answer is always the same: of course to wear! But an important question is what to wear in this particular season. Every outfit, even the most trendy will look outdated if not to combine it with trendy jewels. In this season designers provide us with a wide range of options, even the most demanding lady can find something appropriate for this spring-summer season.
This year designers seems to be more provocative and daring: the jewels are still growing in their sizes, metals are taking the place of crystals and gemstones, excessive layering is everywhere.

As to prove my words, here is a quick overview of main jewelry trends for 2011:

1. Mixture of textures
The most hot trend along with oversized jewels of course is the blending of textures. In new season just one necklace or a pair of earrings can comprise feathers, crystals, beads, chains, and other components at once.

2. Metal is the main component

Precious metals such as gold, silver or platinum, always were in fashion. However, they mostly played the role of gemstones framing. In this season, designers offer to change the accents. What if the metal will play the major role in the composition? Bold decision, isn’t it? But brave and extravagant fashion is brought by 2011, so don’t be afraid to put on a bold chain and oversized earrings together.

3. Jewelery fringe
Already have been noted that fringe is trendy in new 2011 season, however, nobody would imagine that it would be reflected as well in jewels (well, nobody except jewels designers). However, now fringe is one of the most hottest jewelery trends of 2011.

4. Layering
Layering is also a trend borrowed from clothing fashion. Layering in clothing fashion is very actual for 3 or 4 seasons at least. It came in jewelery in 2010, and in 2011 this trend is still very hot.

5. Clear lines, sharp edges

6. Retro is in for 2011 season
