Sore eyes no more!
GLASSES, as usual, are a very scorching
item, especially in music festivals that start at 4 P.M.
However, not all glasses fit fashion standards when it comes to
achieving a Yes, I'm cool enough to come to a concert but
haven't forgot to bring my cool along approach!
Big is once again the order among sunglasses and
to prove it, we've caught several people (mostly men) wearing Dior's
"fly's eyes" during Rio's festival.
Along with other known brands, Dior has challenged
the statement that only "small is beautiful", proving
that big is the ultimate definition for eye protectors.
Can't get you out of
ONE WORD of advice: when choosing
a pair of snickers, think the uglier, the better! This
is the ultimate rule to follow when thinking of buying a new pair
of sports shoes. Sneakers are now a way of life, a new expression
of cool, a trend on your feet that commands what ever else you put
on the body.
Surely you've heard of casual Fridays, haven't
you? Why do you think they exist if not to wear your brand new "slick
hip over the top" Adidas to the office?
Waist of style!
OK, picture this: you've decided
to go with your white Sisley shirt and your favourite pirate jeans
from Guess. Normally you'd be just about ready to leave home but
today you felt like spicing things up a bit. So, you grab your brand
new orange fancy Adidas along with your colour-matched Cavalli purse.
Then it hits you that instead of a purse, why not wear your Timberland
Hip bags are for fashion what MAC
is for good make-up! So now you're feeling sexy and hip but your
mind wonders off to what your boss might say
looking for a new boss that'll appreciate you for who you are and
not for what you wear!
Laced, strapped and zipped!
REMEMBER the new pants you bought
last year? Now add more belts, a few more pockets and some ribbons
and you're all set.
This is what a pair of pants should look like
when wearing just about anything else. However, the rule for it
to work is: do not choose too much pattern or colour for your upper
clothing when wearing these type of pants. Confusing layering
was done two years ago.
If you're more into bringing out the best in
upper wear, then two words of advice: KISS
on the lower end and funky, ripped, asymmetric craziness to cover
your upper parts.
