Fashion and Flair With Denim

Denim is a classic material, and while it used to be mainly used for just jeans, this adaptable fabric can now be found in just about every garment type possible. If you want to add some denim flair to your wardrobe, without purchasing yet another pair of jeans, a denim dress could be exactly what you need.

Simplicity is Key
While denim dress styles have evolved quite a bit over the decades, the current trend for denim dresses is veering towards simplicity. A flowing silhouette that just about skims the body is always a great option, as is a shirtdress that features a darker wash of denim.

Dress It Up
When it comes to denim dresses, one of the main problems that many have is that it can often look slightly too casual. However, it is actually quite easy to dress a denim dress up, as all you need are a few statement accessories. Whether you opt for shoulder-grazing earrings or a pair of killer heels, the accessories that you choose can really transform your whole outfit.

Cinch in the Waist
If your denim dress skims your figure, then there may be times at which you want to enhance your shape. This can easily be done by cinching in your waist, either with a skinny belt or a wider sash. This will give your look so much more definition, and will make your dress fit your body in a different way.

Denim Maxi Dresses
For those looking for something even more unique than a short denim dress, a denim maxi dress may be perfect for you. These usually tend to have quite a vintage vibe, so be sure to keep it modern with your shoes and other accessories.

A Harder Edge
Denim dresses are usually quite casual, but if you would like to give your look a bit more attitude, there are a couple of ways in which you can do this. Try pairing your denim dress with some combat boots, and even add in a leather jacket if you want it to be even more edgy.

Off-Shoulder
The off-shoulder trend has been hot for quite a while now, and shows no sign of slowing down. Opting for an off-shoulder denim dress is a great way to embrace this style, and will give your dress a gorgeous, flirty, feminine quality. If you do not want to show too much skin, tie a thin silk scarf around your neck, as this will keep your chest covered while highlighting your bare shoulders.

Cool and Casual
There are many ways in which you can dress a denim dress up, but it is sometimes always best to wear it in a casual way. Try wearing your dress with a baseball cap and a pair of sneakers for a cool, down-to-earth look.

Denim is such a versatile material, which is why every woman should have a denim dress in her wardrobe. Whether you dress it up with high heels and a statement clutch bag, or go for a casual vibe with sneakers and a baseball cap, your denim dress will soon become your go-to item in your wardrobe.

From “9 to 5” to “After-Hours”

When you have a demanding job and an equally busy social life, it can be difficult trying to dress for both at the same time. If you need to put together an outfit that will seamlessly transition from “9 to 5” to “after-hours”, have a read through the following tips.

Opt for Versatility
There are some garments that are much more versatile than others, and dresses are a great example of this. A dress that is paired with flats and a cardigan will work well for the office, and, once the day is over, the cardigan can be removed and the flats swapped for a pair of heels. A classic pencil skirt also works well in this way, as the look is sophisticated enough for a day at work, but sexy enough for an evening out. When it comes to versatility, denim is one of the most versatile fabrics out there, and if you are able to wear a pair of dark jeans to work, then this is another great option for both day and night.

Classic Cover-Ups
If you are wanting to wear a garment in the evening that is slightly more dramatic, and would not be suitable for work, then a classic cover-up is what you need. A slim tailored blazer is usually the best way to go, as this can hide any bare shoulders or revealing necklines during the day, and can easily be removed and stored away when you head out for the evening.

Make the Most of Accessories
Accessories on their own can easily transform a conventional daytime look into a hot evening outfit. Swapping your large work bag, or even your briefcase, for a small and stylish clutch will instantly glam up your look, while adding a statement belt to an outfit will immediately give it more personality. Jewellery is another accessory that can quickly take a look from day to night. During the day, keep your jewellery quite minimal and conservative, but switch this up in the evenings with a few statement pieces, whether this be large graphic earrings or a chunky necklace. Sometimes, all that a conventional outfit needs to brighten it up is a bit of sparkle, so keep this in mind when picking out accessories.

Don’t Forget About Makeup
While your makeup during the day is likely to be relatively understated, this can easily be amped up for the evenings. The beauty of makeup is that it is so portable, and with a few swipes of mascara and lipstick, can easily dramatize a look. If you don’t have much time after work to re-do your entire face, then simply apply some red lipstick, as this timeless shade will work with just about every outfit.

If taking an outfit from “9 to 5” to “after-hours” is something that you need to do on a regular basis, it is always a good idea to keep a bag with a few accessories in your car or office, so that they are within easy reach when you need them in the evenings. By keeping your daytime outfit relatively simple, you will be able to incorporate statement accessories, such as chunky jewellery or colorful heels, much more easily, beautifully transitioning your look from day to evening.

The White Shirt

This spring, the classic white shirt will be making a huge comeback, and whether you opt for a simple style or a more high fashion, avant-garde interpretation of a white shirt, here are some ideas for the different ways that you can style it.

With Denim
Along with white shirts, denim is another wardrobe staple, and there is little that you can’t match with a classic pair of jeans. When jeans are paired with a crisp white shirt, the look is always fresh, clean and elegant at the same time.

Underneath a Dress
If it is still too cold out to wear your favorite summer dresses, make the most of the versatility of a white shirt and wear one underneath your summer dress. You can do the same thing with your more formal evening dresses, dressing them down with a casual white shirt, thereby making them work for the daytime too.

With a High Waisted Skirt
A crisp white shirt tucked into a high-waisted skirt is always a chic look, whether the skirt happens to be fitted and short or long and billowing. Finish your look off with a belt around your waist, drawing attention to this gorgeous silhouette that you have created.

With a Black Suit
When you need to dress for a more conventional work environment, a white shirt will always work well with a black suit. To give your look more personality, fold your shirt cuffs over your blazer, and add a bright pair of heels to give your black and white look a pop of color.

Paired with Light Colors
When styling a white shirt, the majority choose to pair it with a garment of a darker color, giving an outfit some contrast. However, wearing a white shirt with pants or a skirt that are also light in color will give you a soft, but smart, angelic look.

As a Layer
There are plenty of chilly days in spring, meaning that you will still need to make use of layering techniques when styling your outfits. A white shirt is a great item to include as one of your layers, as the angled collar and comfortable material allow the shirt to stand out, even when hidden underneath another garment. Try wearing your shirt underneath a smart jumper for a more preppy look, or underneath a trench coat for some chic style.

Tucked In
For a smart and tailored look, tuck your shirt into your pants or jeans, preferably a pair that are also well tailored. Pair this look with statement accessories to add in a bit of glam.

When it comes to wardrobe staples, the white shirt is probably one of the most versatile of them all, as it not only can be worn in so many different ways, but it also has the added benefit of being comfortable, while still flattering just about every body type. Whether you pair it with jeans for a classic but fresh look, or wear it underneath a floor-length dress for some high fashion style, a white shirt is an item that everybody should have in their wardrobe.

What the Celebrities Wear Under Their Sexy Outfits – OROGOLD Reviews

A-listers walking the red carpet in fabulous couture gowns may seem extremely glamorous, but, what you may not realize is, many of those celebrities actually need some extra help looking that fantastic in their dresses. From a much-loved pair of Spanx to a double-sided Hollywood Fashion Tape, OROGOLD reviews exactly what it is that the celebrities wear under their sexy outfits.

What the Celebrities Wear Under Their Outfits

Spanx
Spanx are one of the most common shapewear products, and are worn by so many different celebrities to help them squeeze into tight outfits. Curvy reality star Kim Kardashian admits to having to wear two pairs of the control pants in order to fit into some of her skin tight dresses, while Katherine Heigl wore spanx underneath her wedding dress. Oprah Winfrey has even named spanx as one of ‘Oprah’s Favorite Things’, and has even stated that rather than wearing underwear, she wears spanx every day. From bodysuits to shorts to full-length bottoms, spanx come in many different forms and are the go-to garment for many celebrities. For those of you who are looking to invest more into your shapewear, take a look at the garments on offer by dMondaine, as these are a more luxurious, couture alternative to spanx that are favored by celebrities such as Halle Berry, Sofia Vergara and Kelly Osbourne.

Hollywood Fashion Tape
Hollywood Fashion Tape is a clear, double-sided tape that can be applied to fabric, as well as your body, helping to hold your whole look together and to keep your dress from falling away from your bust. Worn by many celebs who have chosen a low-cut dress, the tape works best for petite women who have smaller busts.

The Shibue
The Shibue is a strapless panty that doesn’t have any lines, as it is simply a piece of fabric that twists underneath your private parts, and is held together by a soft silicone gel at the front and at the back, which is washable and reusable. The Shibue, which is great value for money, has gained a huge celebrity following from the likes of Kate Upton, Rosie Huntington-Whiteley, and the cast of Fifty Shades of Grey. It comes in a range of colors and is the ideal solution for those of you who want to wear a sheer or thigh-bearing dress without the risk of going completely commando. For those of you who aren’t comfortable enough to wear the Shibue, ORO GOLD suggests opting for a seamless, nude panty instead.

Minimizer Bra
A well-tailored classic white shirt is always a sexy option, and is a go-to look for many celebrities, such as Jennifer Aniston. However, the problems occur when the shirt is buttoned and begins to pucker, turning a chic, effortless look into a sloppy outfit. A minimizer bra can help to solve this, as it disperses the breast tissue from the middle of the body, preventing fabrics and buttons from puckering.

As fabulous and fashion-forward most of the outfits we see on the red carpet may seem, many of the celebrities that wear them need some extra help to keep their outfits looking so flawless. From classic shapewear to innovative underwear solutions, keep these options in mind the next time you are wearing a celebrity-worthy gown.

How to Keep Your Look Timeless – OROGOLD Reviews

Fashion trends may come and go with each new season, but a timeless look is one that never goes out of style. It may take a while to develop a distinctive yet classic look, but once you do, you will never again have any problems looking elegant and effortlessly chic.

Quality Over Quantity
Although it may be tempting to have something completely different to wear everyday, timeless looks are all about quality, and you should always strive to buy the best that you can afford. High quality garments will be cut in a way that will accentuate and flatter your figure. Opt for natural fabrics, such as wool, silk and cotton, as these have great movement and drape qualities. Always avoid polyester and other synthetic fabrics, as these are much stiffer and bulkier, and will accentuate your imperfections.

Timeless Fashion

Invest in Key Pieces
There are certain garments that every woman, regardless of age, size or background, should have in her wardrobe. The LBD, Little Black Dress, is one of those staples, as it is the perfect canvas for so many different looks. A classic white shirt can also be worn in so many ways, as can a pair of classic jeans. For outerwear, a trench coat is a garment that works with all body types, accentuates waistlines and hides flaws. It is also the ultimate icon of chic, giving the wearer some instant allure.

Simple and Elegant
One of the keys to looking timeless is keeping your outfit fuss-free. Choose clothes that are cut in an elegant, minimal way. Avoid clothes that are distressed, ripped or embellished, as this isn’t the look that you are going for. Prints should also be avoided, unless they are extremely simple. If you want to include prints and bursts of color in your outfit, do this with your accessories. A printed scarf or bold colored bag can really brighten up an outfit. Make sure that your clothes always fit you perfectly, and avoid anything that is baggy or oversized, as this won’t do your look any good, and will only make you look bigger in all the wrong places.

Well-Groomed
Once you have your timeless wardrobe sorted, you need to make sure that your hair, face and skin complement it. You should always be well-groomed, with a clean face and nails, and not drenched in perfume. Keep your makeup to a minimum, so that it always looks fresh and natural rather than heavy and dark. Work on developing a customized skin care routine, so that your skin always has a healthy glow to it. Your hair should always be neat and well-conditioned. If getting your hair color or highlights regularly touched up isn’t something that you’re good at doing, skip the color and go with your natural shade, as visible roots will immediately detract from your timeless look.

With a bit of time and thought, a timeless and classic look is easy to put together. Try to always choose garments that accentuate your best assets, and, no matter how tempted you may be to forgo your classic look for a trendy new style, remember Coco Chanel’s wise words; Fashion changes, but style endures.

Timeless Fashion Buys to Invest In – OROGOLD Reviews

Trends will always come and go, but there are certain items that you will be able to use season after season, year after year. OROGOLD brings you the timeless fashion buys that every woman should invest in.

A Pair of Chanel Cap Toe Flats
The iconic Chanel cap toe flats need no introduction, as they have taken the world by storm, spawning many lookalikes from other brands. These classic flats can be worn with almost any outfit, be it a casual look, with shorts or jeans, or a more elegant look paired with a dress. Not only do they come in a variety of colors, but many styles also feature an adjustable leather tie, that alters how snugly the flats fit around your feet.

An Hermès Bag
An Hermès bag, a Birkin or a Kelly bag in particular, is the ultimate status symbol, and is sought after by women all over the world. Each bag is handmade in the finest leather, and sells for anywhere between $9000 to $150,000, depending on the exact materials used. Although there are usually long waiting lists to endure before you can purchase one of the bags, the wait is worth it as you will then own an investment piece that will last you a lifetime. Once your bag starts to show signs of wear and tear, you can take it in for a Birkin spa treatment, where it will be refurbished and will look as good as new.

Classic Louboutin Pumps
Over the last two decades, Christian Louboutin’s trademarked red soles have become iconic when it comes to classy and stylish shoes. Louboutin pumps come in all shapes and colors, with many styles adorned with crystals or spikes, but a classic pair, such as the Pigalle or So Kate styles, are what OROGOLD believes to be a truly timeless pair of shoes. The shape and cut of each shoe accentuates the leg and urges women to stand up straight, improving their posture, and the splash of red underneath is a confidence booster to anyone who wears them.

Chanel Pearls
Coco Chanel launched her first line of costume jewelery in 1924, and it was a huge success, being described by Harper’s Bazaar as ‘one of the most revolutionary designs of our time’. The beauty of pearls transcends age and culture, and can be worn in so many ways, whether you are heading to work in the middle of London or dining out on sushi in downtown Tokyo. Pearls are also extremely versatile, and look great either worn on their own, layered with other pieces of jewelery, or worn tighter like a cuff or a chunky choker. Many styles of Chanel peals are often interspersed with glass or crystal beads, adding texture, interest and a modern yet timeless quality.

Investing in timeless pieces is always worth it, as it is something that you will love all through your life, whether you’re in your 20s or your 60s. Although you may end up spending more than you usually would, don’t forget that the items will be of the highest quality and made with the finest materials, and will give you a huge boost of style and confidence no matter what you wear them with.
