Many people consider underwear to be something of a necessity and therefore often think that the underwear they wear is not important, and whilst this statement may have been true in the past, it is no longer the case today.Â In actual fact, womenâ??s underwear is now increasingly more being considered as an important garment, with more and more women giving careful consideration as to which underwear to purchase.Â It seems apparent that underwear is almost becoming considered more as a fashion accessory rather than as merely a functional item.
When shopping for underwear it is possible to become overwhelmed with all the types, styles and brands of underwear which are available on the market.Â However, the mere choice and selection of underwear should not inspire fear in women but rather it should be considered as a positive thing.Â Women should embrace all that is available to them, within this particular market, as previously there was little choice and they had to just take what they were given.Â However, gone are the days when the â??one size fits allâ? philosophy was credited to underwear.Â In fact the great variety of underwear which is now available means that each and every woman should be able to find underwear that is tailored to their tastes, size and needs.
When purchasing new underwear the one key thing that all women must bear in mind is the outfit with which they shall be wearing the underwear.Â Giving consideration to the outfit means that the field of options available to each woman is narrowed.Â For example for those women who are attending a formal event and evening dress and are perhaps worried about any lumps or bumps showing through their dress, then underwear which minimise such problems would be ideal.Â However, even this particular segment of the market has many options.Â There is underwear available which reduces the appearance of tummies, whilst other underwear can make a ladyâ??s bottom appear smaller and other underwear and make waist size appear reduced.Â Thus before purchasing new underwear each and every woman should have a clear of the outfit with which she plans to wear the underwear and in addition to this an understanding as to the problem she wants the underwear to solve or the function she wants it to undertake.
It is imperative that women take this ethos on board, as purchasing the wrong underwear or teaming the wrong underwear with a particular outfit can be disastrous.Â In todayâ??s day and age women should consider underwear to be a key element of an outfit and give as much consideration as to the underwear they should wear as to the dress or trousers they will wear.
It is a well known fact amongst women that when the occasion arises whereby an evening dress is required most women are filled with a sense of dread rather the happy sentiment they should be experiencing.Â This feeling of dread and fear often comes from the notion that most women about not being able to find something suitable to wear on that particular occasion. Shopping for suitable evening dresses can be stressful the best of times, with many women fearing they will get it wrong.Â However, there are a few simple points that all women should bear and hopefully by sticking doing so all their angst will be alleviated.Â
First and foremost when shopping for a dress for that special occasion it is upmost importance that each woman buys a dress that she feels comfortable in.Â Above all, evening dresses can be expensive and therefore large amounts of money should not be spent on something which a lady feels uncomfortable in.Â In addition to this the more comfortable a woman feels in an evening dress the more confident she appears and consequently the better she looks.Â As everyone knows women come in all different shapes and sizes and therefore what fits one woman beautifully will not fit another woman well at all.Â Women should bear this in mind when shopping for an evening dress as unless the dress fits the woman who is wearing it she is unlikely to feel comfortable.Â So the first rule in purchasing an evening dress is to find one which is well fitting and one in which the woman feels comfortable.
Secondly, the style shape and pattern of the dress should be selected based on the womanâ??s figure.Â There is a common misconception that if a woman has a fuller figure that she must wear loose fitting clothes, which hide her figure.Â However, this is simply not true, larger women should not go on the lookout for something which resembles a tent when they are shopping for an evening dress.Â Nor should they try to buy something which is tight and clingy.Â Rather they should opt for something which is flattering to their figure and something which accentuates their curves.Â Furthermore, a woman should consider design of the design in regards to its colour or whether or not it sports a pattern.Â For the slightly larger lady it is advisable to pick for an evening dress which does not boast a large print.Â The same is true of petite women.Â For curvaceous women a large print can cause them to appear larger than they actually are, whilst for petite women the print can often be over powering and leave the woman looking dwarfed.Â Instead larger prints should only be tackled by those of a taller frame.Â
If women want to appear slimmer then it probably best to choose an evening dress which consists of a block colour.Â All cardigans, boleros or shrugs should also be in keeping with the chosen colour.Â Often this puts many women off as they think that it looks boring.Â However, this can be changed by using a mix of different materials.Â By ensuring that the dress is a different texture to the cover up will break the outfit up and prevent it from looking lacklustre, whilst still slimming the figure.Â Furthermore colour can be added through the use of accessories and shoes.
By following these few simple points it should be much easier for a woman to find a dress which she deems appropriate for the occasion.Â Hopefully these points will help not to panic at the mention of event worthy of evening wear and hopefully they will actually enjoy the task of shopping for an evening dress in the future.
There is a common dilemma amongst women about to wear to an evening event when it is not a formal occasion.Â They neither want to appear too casual nor do they want to appear too dressy, and consequently they are often left uncertain as to what they should wear.Â Formal occasions often make women worry about what to wear, but shopping for an evening dress is much simpler than shopping for an outfit to wear to an evening event or occasion which is more informal.Â However, although such an occasion presents a more difficult situation in the wardrobe department it is still possible for women to achieve the right look.Â Evening tops represents the perfect solution.
An evening top can be dressed up or dressed down as much as the woman desires.Â By teaming it with a skirt it can produce a more elegant and sophisticated look, whilst teaming it with trousers can help to tone the look done, make it less formal.Â However, if a top with a lot of detail is being worn then either the trousers or skirt must remain simple, block colour on the bottom half is advisable.Â Conversely if the skirt or trousers are plain, colour or detail can be added through the top.Â The sheer number and variety of evening tops available means that there is surely one to suit every occasion and every woman.Â Every woman has her own sense of style and her own individualistic approach to fashion but due to the infinite different styles, patterns and textures available in evening tops this need not be a problem.
The other great thing about evening tops is that they are suitable for women of all ages.Â All too often, certain clothes can only be worn by women of a particular age group but with the range and variety of evening tops this does not apply.Â In addition to this evening tops can be considered a staple wardrobe item.Â They can be worn all year long, season after season.Â In the summer months evening tops can be worn on their own but during the winter months or simply for those colder evenings they can be worn with a cardigan, bolero or shrug, thus making an evening top a great investment.Â Moreover, the fact that an evening top can be teamed with some many items to create many different looks means that value for money is guaranteed.
We all experience that same age old problem of what to wear on a night out or a lavish evening event. However, this need not be a dilemma anymore. There are plenty of evening wear options out there available for women of all shapes, sizes and age. Whether it is a special night out, a function or just a few after work drinks with your work mates or friends, at Roman Originals there is evening wear available to suit.Â Women often suffer from the common misconception that they can never wear the same dress or top twice but this simply is not true.Â In fact women should invest carefully in a few staple pieces of evening wear and mix and match these items depending on the occasion.
The Little Black Dress
Letâ??s start with the little black dress.Â Everyone owns one and if you donâ??t then you probably should, it is one of the best fashion investments you will ever make.Â The LBD is timeless and never goes out of fashion.Â Not only this, but it also provides you with a blank canvas to create whatever look you like.Â For that sense of sophistication just wear it as it is with a few pieces of refined jewellery to complete the look.Â
However, to create a look which is slightly less demure and one which makes you stand out from the crowd then add a splash of colour.Â The beauty of the little black dress is that it goes with almost anything. Â So transform it with a pair of killer heels or extravagant jewellery.Â It often surprises people just how easily these accessories can change an outfit.Â So although you may have worn the same dress twice you have achieved two completely different outfits.
Skirts and Trousers for the less formal option
Even if the evening out is less formal there are still many evening wear options available to women.Â But again this does not lead to lead to complicated life full of decisions about what and what not to wear.Â Rather the same rules apply as before, invest in a few staple items and rotate them.
A longer length skirt can be great for achieving that smart casual look.Â A pencil skirt or a high waisted skirt can add a sense of glamour to an outfit and can be extremely flattering.Â A pencil skirt can be worn by women of most shapes.Â It is often thought that these types of skirts can only be worn by those of a slimmer build but truth be told they can be great for women with fuller figures.Â Not only do they hug their curves but they can also be quite slimming.Â However, pencil skirts should be worn with heels to emphasis the legs.Â The other beauty of a pencil skirt is that it only requires a simple top, as too much detail could ruin the look.Â The same applies to high waisted skirts, which are highly fashionable at the moment.Â Although both types of skirt create a very simple look, it is a look which oozes style and sophistication, something most women seek in evening wear.
However, some women do not feel confident or comfortable in skirts and in this instance a pair of black trousers may be best.Â Much like the little black dress, black trousers are a timeless classic, which a woman of any age can carry off.Â Many women are put off by black trousers thinking that they are dull and boring in comparison to other evening wear.Â However this could not be any further from the truth.Â If the right shape of black trousers is found they cannot only be very flattering to the figure but also very classy.Â Furthermore, as it has been kept simple on the bottom half a hint of glamour can be added by teaming the trousers with a detailed top.Â
With so many stylish and chic options available in evening wear no woman should ever be in dilemma again as to what to wear on a night out.
Women are often faced with the problem of what to wear on top, without looking dowdy or frumpy.Â They want something which finishes their look off and still looks chic and tasteful.Â This can easily be achieved by wearing boleros and shrugs, two items which are frequently overlooked by many.Â Nevertheless, they are in fact suitable for women of all ages, shapes and sizes and are the ideal for finishing off an outfit perfectly.
Cover up with a Bolero or shrug:
Boleros and shrugs are great cover up for those ladies who are not keen on showing their upper arms.Â For many women they are filled with a sense of dread at the prospect of having their so called â??bingo wingsâ? on display and although we say be confident and donâ??t be afraid to show off your arms some women just arenâ??t comfortable in doing so.Â In that case boleros are the ideal solution.Â They are also great for those who do have the confidence to show off their upper arms.Â We are moving ever closer to autumn and as the nights get colder fewer and fewer women want to go out in bare arms.Â A bolero is a much more stylish and elegant option than a coat or cardigan for an evening out.Â Â Boleros are fantastic as they can dress an outfit up or down.Â Some outfits just need a little extra something and a bolero can often be that something.Â
There are a wide variety of boleros and shrugs available at Roman Originals, each of which has the ability to add something different to an outfit.Â For instance a plain black bolero can add a sense of sophistication to an ensemble, and if the rest of the outfit is black it is keeping with the block colour and can be very slimming.Â However, if you want to move away from block colour to opt for a look which makes the rest of your outfit stand then try adding a coloured bolero.Â In the case of a black outfit a red bolero can be extremely effective in making your outfit stand out.Â For those who want a really glam, evening look try teaming a sequined bolero with your dress for ultra chic.
Furthermore, although more casual than a bolero, shrugs are still very stylish and with a variety of style available there is surely one to suit everyone.Â Some styles are more casual than others, whilst some are more detailed than others, meaning that each adds something individual to an outfit.
Shrugs can be worn with a pair of jeans and in this instance a simple top and detailed shrug are advisable.Â Alternatively a top with detail could be worn with a plain shrug.Â But remember the age old rule of not too much detail, it important to choose either a detailed top or a detailed shrug but never both at the same time.
Shrugs also come in very handy at this time of year as the evenings start to get colder.Â So whilst round at a friendâ??s and enjoying their garden take a shrug along for the evening.Â They can look great layered over the top of a summer dress.Â Not only are shrugs extremely practical but the layering effect they allow us to achieve is highly fashionable.
