Premium party dress for all occasions

It’s that time of the year again when we start to wonder what to wear for the year end Christmas parties. Christmas is upon us and to me this means one thing…Christmas Party Dress shopping!!! (Woohooo!!) Money is tight at this time of the year and we all want to look festively fabulous as we celebrate Christmas with colleagues and loved ones over a mulled wine or three!  So why splurge on your Christmas party wear when you can spend considerably less here at Sayfashion!! (Sounds like a very good idea to me!)

If you are expecting that a black velvet off the shoulder dress with opaque tights and black court shoes will carry you through Christmas 2014, think again.  This Christmas brings us an array of vibrant colours, funky textures and festive sparkle.  It’s definitely a feast for the eyes and not for the faint hearted. So let’s jingle away!!

Trend alert: The fall boots

It’s the rise of the ankle boots!

Your ankle boots can be spike-heeled, plat formed, peep-toed – but one thing for sure they are here to make you feel comfy and confident when you strut down the street with them on.

At ground level, this catwalk season is awash with ankle boot, whether it comes with spike heels or two-inch platforms; in zebra stripe or super glossy patent; with peep-toes or laser cut-outs; fastened with biker buckles or Victoriana lace-ups; studiedly slouchy or ankle-clenching tight. The choice is simply yours! So pick a style that you feel most comfortable with and style it with your personal touch!

The new lease on fashion, all things Linen!

kstylick.blogspot.com2

Do you adore wearing linen as much as I do? :) Linen can do wonderful things to reduce heat as it is breathable and cool to touch. The intense heat in Malaysia has led to a few questions from readers as to what are the best way to stay cool and still look fashionable in tailoring. Although each has its own benefits, ceteris paribus I vastly prefer it to cotton, fresco or other high-twist fabrics.

Autumn/Winter’15 Trend alert: The autumn colour – RED!!!

Blood Lines!!

SANGUINEOUS shades hold a lethal fascination this season as head-to-toe scarlet drench coats, knits and gowns dazzle in brilliance. More dazzling than deadly, these red are healthy, warm and vibrant, proving fashion’s heart beats strong and sure. Out of all the primary colours, red is considered as one of the most powerful. Often associated with passion and danger, it’s a hue that is sure to get you noticed. There are, of course, different ways of wearing the shade whether you choose to add bursts of the colour to your outfit or go all-out in top-to-toe rouge. If you’re searching for casual classics or sharp tailoring, red is a bold and vibrant choice.

Another vivacious red hue is the cherry red. If you feel confident enough to take it up a notch, opt for a brighter tone such as cherry red. Playful and vibrant, this is a sweet shade that will inject personality into your summer attire.

Often associated with strength and power, red is a colour that turns heads. Be bold and enter the new season with confidence by replacing your LBD or boring grey winter coat with a scarlet version!

Equal parts playful and proper, comic book-inspired clutches and bags are taking the street-style scene by storm. There seems to be a bit of a trend for novelty / comedy clutch bags at the moment. The big hoo-ha about Moschino’s MacDonalds themed collection – would you want to sport the famous arches on your designer bag? Anyway, with these fun and quirky clutches going on, Charlotte Olympia, the queen of quirky herself had a few fun styles to complement her awesome shoes. I LOVE the Eye Want You clutch. And Anya Hindmarch has a definite snacks based theme going on with her clutches – anyone up for a ginger nut??

Autumn/Winter ’15 trend Alert: Sixty Swings

Image by: Gucci

Image by: Gucci

This upcoming season’s fall-winter 2014-2015 trend is all about bold new silhouettes, modern and delicate materials, as well as bright colours and styles. There is no doubt that the retro inspired styles featuring classic shapes and bright colours are making a huge comeback. We expect typical wearable fashion essentials with touches of creativity, commercial updates, unexpected classics, luxurious and confident ready to wear garments, as well as experimentations and fashion forward looks. We also see experimental, classic, feminine, mannish and very modern outfits.

All of those elements lead us to the swinging 60’s!! Now, as we have already mentioned the comeback of the old and forgotten pieces, it’s the right time to think of the swinging 1960′s and 1950′s retro looks. How about completing your outfit with a glossy trench coat? We also suggest cool and elegant shift dresses, youthful pin up updates, flared skirts, pale prints, and much more.

A definitive era for fashion, film and MUSIC, the 60s makes a comeback this winter, reinstating all our favourite swinging styles. It is time to slip into shift dresses and buttoned-up coats as designers revisit the silhouettes made iconic by Brigitte Bardot and Twiggy. Team a knitted roll-neck with a thigh-skimming leather skirt, cinching your waist and elongating your legs…

Twiggy, Penelope Tree and Jane Birkin were on the minds of designers at Gucci, Saint Laurent and Louis Vuitton this season. Mini-skirts, trapeze dresses, patent Mary-Janes, graphic bobs and pastel colours paid tribute to the baby doll style, presenting a fresh, carefree take on the Swinging Sixties London.

Lingerie Trend: Racerback Lace Lingerie

Lace is back!! (No pun intended!) We saw this trend hit the runways back in 2009. However it doesn’t seem to look like it’s going anywhere. If anything designers are taking a different spin on the lingerie as ‘outwear’ trend, adding more lace into lingerie. Making a super feminine finishing touch, making lingerie as it should be, sexy!!!

Let’s start with a go-to innerwear as outwear piece: the Racerback. If you’re going to show off your chest and neckline, why not accentuate your back too? The racerback style makes shoulders look sultry. Some women even find that racer back bras give them more support…although I’ll leave that for you to decide. Wear this under a sheer top or a low-cut cropped tee. The racer back is said to give women more shoulder movement and freedom, with less stress on the shoulders.

You also don’t have to ever worry about ‘slip-straps’, those moments of tucking your bra straps are gone with the racer back style.  Showing off your back is the new things. With different lace back styles and designs, its adding the feminist touch, with lace also having the touch of class.

Trend alert: Cut-out & ripped denim pants

LET’S GET RIPPED!!

The irony of the “hole” ripped denim is that it takes care to engineer something so careless. But it’s this carelessness factor that keeps it on the fashion radar. From spring 2014, torn jeans continue to be worn in the most casual or most sophisticated of ways.

The main challenge consists in trying to maintain a state of comfort, while still aiming for the distressed jeans to look effortlessly pulled together,  the chicer the better.  Styles range from classy, edgy and super-tough approaches to men inspired trends.

Celebrites that are rocking the new ripped denim look range from Kim Kardashian, J.Lo, Kate Moss and the list goes on.

How to get the Kim Kardashian look, always been known for the dramatic look its no surprise that here her jeans are the main focal point exposes whole thigh area, matched with a simple white tank top, and cream blazer and nude high heels to keep it feminine.
