Spring Travel Must-Haves

Whether you are heading off for spring break with your friends, family, or that special someone, it is always a good idea to put some advanced planning into your packing. From skin care to gadgets, here are the spring travel must-haves that you definitely do not want to be leaving at home.

Sunglasses and Sun Protection
No matter where you may be headed to, spring signifies the beginning of better weather, meaning that you are likely to be spending much longer in the sun while you are on your travels. This makes a pair of UV blocking sunglasses absolutely essential, because not only will they add an element of chic to your look, but they will also provide the skin around your eyes with extra protection from the sun’s damaging rays. In addition to your sunglasses, you should also bring along a few other items that can help protect you from the sun, from a broad spectrum sunscreen to a wide-brimmed hat.

Cleanser and Moisturizer
While you may be tempted to leave your cleanser and moisturizer at home, and buy new, smaller versions when you reach your destination, it would be far more beneficial to your skin to bring along your everyday cleanser and moisturizer. Although cleansers may be easily available, switching to a new formula suddenly can really disrupt your skin’s pH balance, causing everything from redness and irritation to breakouts. Sticking with products that your skin is already used to will help you to avoid any skin issues while you are away.

Spring Jacket
Even if you are planning on travelling somewhere hot and sunny, spring weather can still be quite unpredictable, which is why it is always useful to have a lightweight spring jacket on hand. Since you are opting for a light version, you will easily be able to squeeze this into your bag, and, whether you have a rainy day or a chilly evening, you will be covered. Trench coats are ideal for this, as they are always right on trend in the spring, and bring a classy touch to any outfit.

Portable Charger
The majority of people these days travel with a number of different gadgets and devices, and organizing the many different chargers for each of these can be time-consuming and frustrating. A portable travel charger takes all of the fuss out of travelling with gadgets, as these will allow you to charge multiple devices all at the same time with just one charging device, saving you time and space.

When travelling, it is always easier to keep all of your documents in one place, not only so that they are easily accessible when you need them, but also to ensure that none of them end up lost. A travel wallet is a great way to do this, as these will have pockets and slots for all of your essential travel items, from your passport to your foreign currency to your credit cards.

Spring is a fantastic time of the year to travel, and these must-have items are guaranteed to have your trip running as smoothly as possible. From a travel wallet to hold all important documents to a portable charger that will ensure that you are never stranded without your phone or camera, these items all deserve a bit of space in your luggage.

Mixing Trendy and Classic

Classic pieces are essential in any wardrobe, as they are so versatile, and can be worked into just about any style. When combining a classic piece with a more modern and trendy piece, the results will be a truly fashion forward look that makes a bold and individual statement.

Classic Tops
For those of you just beginning to venture into the idea of mixing classic with trendy, tops are a great place to start. Classic options could include a button down shirt, a button down soft blouse, or a denim shirt, with each of these garments having so much potential when it comes to putting together a trendy outfit. The white shirt in itself can be worn in so many different ways, whether with trendy leather pants and ballet flats, or cigarette pants and a cropped sweater. Stripes are also a classic look when it comes to tops, and can be paired with anything from a pencil skirt to slouchy pants.

Accessories
The accessories that you choose to go with an outfit that has both classic and trendy elements is quite important, as this can either bring your whole look together or make it seem disjointed. If the focus of your outfit is on one of your classic pieces, it is usually best to keep your accessories quite trendy and contemporary, picking a color that is present in your outfit and opting for accessories in this same shade.

Outerwear
Just like with tops, it is relatively easy to style an outfit with the focus being on a classic piece of outerwear. Whether it may be a classic trench coat, a denim jacket or a simple blazer, these looks can all be paired with trendier items to give them a modern twist. Try wearing a trench coat with a pair of boyfriend jeans and a clutch, or a classic tailored blazer with a pair of skinny jeans for a fashionable smart casual look. When it comes to the denim jacket, try wearing this with a pencil skirt and some strappy sandals for an elegant yet feminine look.

Contemporary Hair and Makeup
The best way to give a classic/trendy look some grounding is by ensuring that your hair and makeup has plenty of contemporary touches. Even if you take inspiration from classic hairstyles and makeup techniques, which is always a fantastic idea for a look that is truly your own, make sure that the finished look is modernized, as this will give your entire outfit a fresh and relevant appeal.

Fashion is all about individuality, and your style choices reflect different aspects of your personality. If you are finding it difficult making your classic pieces look contemporary, try working on adjusting the silhouette, and make sure that your outfit contains plenty of non-neutral color. Mixing trendy pieces with classic ones is a great way to give your look a unique twist, so if your wardrobe is lacking some of the statement classic pieces mentioned above, this season is a great time to start adding some in.

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.

Pastel Picks for Your Spring Wardrobe – OROGOLD Reviews

Fashion this spring is all about simple elegance in sugary-sweet shades of understated brights. The mix of pastels bring about an ethereal feeling, with minimalism and nature both huge inspirations to the color palette. Rather than having to buy a whole new closet, we have put together some key pastel pieces that are worth the investment, and which you can easily mix and match with items that you already own.

A Pastel Trench Coat 
Trench coats are right on trend this season, with a pastel colored one even more so. Originating from menswear, the design of a trench coat really stands out when it is in a pastel shade. It is also a great piece to own if you are still on the fence when it comes to wearing pastel colors, as it is something that you can throw over any outfit. If a pastel coat seems too feminine for you, choose one that has its trench coat details enhanced, and is made from a heavier or textured fabric. For those who like the idea of pastel colored outerwear but don’t want a trench coat, opt for a pastel colored blazer instead, which you can wear to work as well as in the evenings.

Pastel Colored Jeans
This spring, denim is going upmarket, with many denim garments featuring intricate stitching and design details. A pair of jeans in an ice blue shade is a great way to embrace both the denim and pastel trends at the same time, without making your outfit look over the top. A candy colored pink pair of jeans would also be a good purchase, and can be worn with neutrals and light colors to ensure your look keeps its dreamy elegance. If pastel pink jeans are too bland for your tastes, choose a torn or distressed pair, giving your look a bit of edge. You can also pair them with tougher materials, such as a leather jacket.

Neon-Pastels
The term neon-pastels may seem like a bit of a contradiction, but the colors that this term refers to will brighten up your outfit whilst keeping your look trendy and stylish. In terms of actual color, neon-pastels would include shades that are reminiscent of children’s artificial sherbet, such as lime, raspberry and lemon. Choose garments in vividly saturated candy colors, giving a slight twist to the pastel trend. These colors also look great around the eyes, so think about the makeup you like to wear whilst choosing the color of your next purchase.

If you are still unsure about adding pastel colors to your wardrobe, start off with accessories, such as sunglasses or shoes, in ice cream shades, or with individual garments that you can wear with neutral colors. When choosing garments with prints, look for designs that emphasise the times of childhood simplicity, with retro patterns and floral art. For those looking to purchase just one statement piece this season but can’t decide which pastel color to choose, go for lilac, as it is not only one of the standout shades for this spring, but it also looks great against every skin tone.

Update Your Wardrobe for Spring

Now that the dreary days of winter seem to be mostly behind us, it is time to begin thinking about updating your wardrobe, putting aside your cold weather go-to pieces for some new spring essentials. Luckily, many of the fashion trends this spring will make it easy to incorporate pieces that you are likely to already own, whilst others are classic looks that are worth investing in, as they are bound to find a long-term home in your wardrobe. OROGOLD Cosmetics helps you update your wardrobe for Spring.

Denim
Almost everybody owns something made of denim, be it a pair of jeans or a jacket. This year, denim will be going upmarket, with many pieces featuring intricate stitching and other design details. If you are looking to add a new pair of jeans to your wardrobe, look for a high waist flared style, or even a boot-cut. For those who are fans of denim, now is the time to experiment with other denim garments, such as dresses, culottes and dungarees.

Flats
Women around the world could not have been happier when they saw that flat, comfortable shoes were once again on trend for this spring. Flat does not have to mean boring, and there are a whole range of styles out there, from loafers to brogues.

Shirts
There were such a variety of shirts seen on runways for this spring, from gingham to polo shirts. The checked pattern is always an easy one to incorporate into your look, and can be worn in a variety of ways. White is a color that will be popular this spring, and a crisp white shirt makes a beautifully understated impression. Choose one that has other interesting elements, such as lace, or a translucent fabric, to really stand out from the crowd.

The 70s
Another big trend this spring is the 70s, with many different looks that you can add to your wardrobe. From jewel-toned fringed shirts to chocolate suede, you can add a sense of the 70s to your style just from the fabrics that your clothes are made from. One great 70s inspired item is the pencil skirt, which can be worn during the day as well as dressed up at night. ORO GOLD recommends you to choose one that is made from high quality fabric and make sure you try sitting down in it before you buy it, as the fabric needs to flatter you no matter what you are doing.

Trench Coats
Trench coats always seem to make their way back into the spotlight, mostly due to the way that designers can easily modernize them with different details and fabrics. A light trench coat is a great way to stay warm but stylish this spring, and you will find them in a variety of shades and prints. For something a little different, look for one that is made of a light and draping fabric, such as a silky wool, which you can wear over loose trousers for a luxurious yet relaxed evening look.

Spring is a great time of the year to add some new styles to your wardrobe, giving it a fresh burst of life just in time for the arrival of warmer weather. When buying new pieces, think about which ones would work well with items you already own, as well as what would work best on a daily basis when incorporated into your own personal style.
