Black is a favorite color for almost every F/W. People seems to be never getting tired with this color trend or should we not call this a fashion trend but a fashion classic? For those who have got bored with the black or dark colors, you may find life is more vivid in this F/W. Purple and Pink have come to the mind of fashion designers.

Purple :

Purple is a combination of red and blue. One from the cold tones and one from the warm tones which may reflect a mixture of passion and coolness in human. No matter you want to show which feeling, purple gives you the choice. Apart from the feelings, it also adds a bit feminine to your style. Haider Ackermann, Balenciaga, Givenchy and Lanvin show you the way to dress in purple.

Pink :

Wearing Sequins in the Day

Though sequined wears are usually associated with evening occasions and night parties, you can create a day appropriate outfit by opting for classic colours like black, gold or silver. By keeping your silhouette ...simple and classy, you can also avoid overkill. A complementary shrug, with matching details can also tone down your bling bling top and yet offering a chic look.

The sequin embroidery crochet shrug in sheer fabric allows you to incorporate the jazzy and eyecatching sequins in your wardrobe in a subtle and stylish way.

Layering Styles

Layering look! It adds warmth and makes summer dresses wearable all year round. It also adds colors to otherwise boring outfits and cover up some unflattering curves of body.
Some of the favourite layering styles include:

l. Using waistcoats and vests (or sometimes sleeveless tank tops) for layering. Choose an item with sequins, or made with faux fur to avoid looking old fashioned. Details like hoods, lace trimmings, or pom poms also help.

2. Another favourite is layering the bottom half with tights and leggings worn under a skirt or tunic, then paring with high boots. But it is important to make sure that the top is long enough hide the hip.

3. One of the layering accessories is scarf. Layering or not layering, scarves can be a frequent accessory. Pick sequined scarves and velvet scarves for occasions, and flowery prints for casual outfits. One way to wear a scarf is wearing it inside a blazer, with the ends of the scarf tucked in the waistline of the pants/skirt. This will make the scarf a nice-looking cross-bust blouse, fits for formal looks.
