This summer, rompers are holding their position as the best and coolest clothes for the season. They are so adorable and fun to wear, and the right one can make your body look much better. Also, rompers are so easy to put on, and they are girls best friends on summer vacations because they don’t take too much space in the suitcase. When you have a romper, you have the whole outfit. I just love them because of that!

Then again there are so many mistakes that you can make if you don’t know what fits you well. They can make you look like you are in your pyjamas, or like a child if the fit is wrong. But don’t worry, we are here to help you.

If you are curvy, and your hips are wider than your shoulders, you have a pear shaped body. When you know your body type, you can easily decide what fits you well, and what kinds of clothes are making a balanced look.

Roxy Juniors Spin Sail Sleeveless Romper

Roxy Junior Sleeveless Romper

The first rule about choosing the right romper for the pear shaped body is to try to find rompers that are darker at the bottom. So this one is a school example what to buy to make a perfect balance.

This design is very cool and versatile, so it can be worn on many occasions such as brunch, party or just for a walk by the seashore.

Black and white are not even colours, so you can match them with all of the colours of this world.

For a clean look, just forget accessories and combine this romper with a cute clutch.

The back of this romper is sexy, there is only one strap on the back, so you can put your hair up and be the main star of the street.

Angie Women’s Bell Sleeve Romper

Another good advice for women who have wide hips is to put attention on the upper part of the body. With this Angie bell sleeve romper, the attention will be on the sleeves and on the neck.

Interesting print of this romper will make you look youthful and free-spirited, so it is a great pick for the beach. I would wear it with leather ankle wrap sandals. They can be combined with mules if you want to follow trends.

This fabric is very light and there is a drawstring on the waist so it can be adjusted to fit you even after a big juicy meal.

Sanctuary Clothing Women’s Soft Surplus Tencel Romper

Jeans is a huge trend this season. Yes dear, I know, again!

Maybe we can thank Rihanna and her music video “4,5 seconds” for this. I am not bothered with that, I just love jeans, and if you are also a fan of this fabric you should definitely buy this romper!

Ok, actually this romper is not made of denim, it is 100% Lyocell, wich makes it much lighter, and suitable for spring and summer. You can unbutton the upper part when you are feeling hot, and twist your sleeves.

It has interesting upper part with pockets, just like jeans shirt. Excellent for girls with flat chests. This washed out jeans romper go well with sandals, but also with sneakers, and I love wearing sneakers in the summer because I think I have ugly toes. I hope that you don’t have the same problem.

NY Collection Women’s 3/4 Sleeve Printed Romper

NY Collection Romper

Again, our aim is to focus the attention of a viewer on your face and your upper body. This pink line on the fabric is very helpful.
The stripes on this fabric are making you look taller, but it might not suit well to bigger girls. Tie waist makes this romper adjustable, and 3/4 sleeve are so cool. You can add a nice watch on your wrist, or some interesting bracelets. The shorts is free flowing and roomy, so you don’t have to worry about that.

Combine it with pink shoes, if you are so lucky to have them, or use the safe ones – nude heels.

If you are not a party girl, this romper will be a good companion if you match it with flat sandals and hat.

BCBGeneration Women’s Long-Sleeve Romper with Lace Neck

BCBGeneration Women's Long-Sleeve Romper with Lace Neck

You will get pure elegance with this lace collar and perfect shape of this romper. Black covers everything perfectly, makes you look so sophisticated even tough you are wearing a romper. Large cutout at centre front will put attention on your chests and not on your wide hips, and that is how you will profit from this look.

You will save your money on jewellery because this one doesn’t need any. Ok, maybe small effective earrings. If your legs aren’t as long as this, you have to wear heals, and it should be fine ankle heels just like in the picture.

Match clutch and earrings, or lipstick and clutch and you are ready to enjoy in compliments at every party this spring!

Guess Women’s Short Sleeve Anja Belted Faux Suede Romper

Columbia Women’s Lay ’D’ Down Jacket

“This coat is amazing” – Actual Review

We thought we had seen popular winter jackets, but when we came across this Columbia’s “Lay ‘D’ Down” we were blown away! It essentially jumped to the top of our list.  It seems that keeping it simple works best when it comes to a comfortable, warm and cozy winter weather coat.

The jacket is extremely warm even if harsh climates of Michigan and Utah. One customer remarked that she wore it in -20 Degree Fahrenheit with only a t-shirt! The down filling and scientifically tested material/fibers of Columbia brand coats insures the best protection possible against the cold.

It’s also extremely stylish. As shown above it is not bulky at all, and the short length gives optimal flexibility and maneuverability when on the move. A perfect jacket for a quick run to the store or a long hike in the woods, it seems Columbia has found the best of both worlds with this one.

If you are truly serious about improving your fashion game, then one of the things you need to do is develop a look that is truly your own. In other words, you need to figure out a foolproof look that you can always go to. This should give you a template of things you should wear while still giving you a myriad of options when it comes to possible variations.

Don’t know where to start? Well, a good place to do so would be to picture the ensembles that make you feel comfortable in your own skin. Alternatively, you can also seek help from people close to you by asking them which outfits you look great in. That being said, if you ever come across an article of clothing that you need to talk yourself into, then chances are you should probably skip that one.

When putting together your look, be sure to avoid overmatching different articles of clothing. Instead, you should go with different colors that help enhance one another. A simple look at the color wheel should help you choose the items most suited to each other.

 

Getting dressed and putting together an outfit is simply one of those routines that would be impossible to avoid, no matter your line of work. However, despite being an everyday occurrence, it can still often feel frustrating. The feeling of not having anything to wear is a daily conundrum that most of us have to go through every morning. Luckily, we are here to make things a bit easier for you. Take note that the following tips come directly from fashion experts, retailers, and industry leaders so be sure to take note.

Pay attention to proportions

As common sense would tell you, you want your outfit to highlight the parts you are proud of while also taking attention away from the parts you wish to downplay. Of course, that can be a bit tricky but it is certainly possible if you know what you are doing. For instance, you can opt to add opposite volume to even out your proportions. It is all about redirecting the eyes.

Age-Appropriate Fashion

Most people forget that being comfortable in your own skin is a crucial component to dressing well. To look fashionable is to dress in age-appropriate ways. This means adapting to the latest fashion trends while not looking kitsch.

April showers bring May flowers, isn’t that how the saying goes? Well in preparation for this years wet season (whether it’s Hurricane season in the Southeast, or springtime showers in the North) we want to provide you with the the best selection of men’s raincoats available anywhere online. Mining through tons of different selections, evaluating on a plethora of factors like fabric and materials, water resistance, insulation and warmth, as well as customer feedback, we’ve come down to a final selection.

This is a hand selected list of our favorite 7 jackets, all high quality and from premium manufacturers and high scorers on all of our evaluation factors. Now without further ado, lets get to it!

Evapouration from Columbia Men’s Sportswear

Our #1 pick this year is comes from a heralded brand in the outdoor wear space, Columbia. While known more for their winter wear, many of the same variables are carried over to make some exceptional rain wear. It’s got more features and factors than some other Columbia jackets, including proprietary EVAP advanced evaporation panels.

Omni-tech waterproof, it can provide all the protection you need from the cold sting of rain. However it also includes underarm venting to allow for ventilation during times of high heat or activity (i.e. running, jogging, biking, etc).

It’s pockets zip close to help secure you valuable items like cell phones, wallets, keys, etc. It also keeps these items behind the same water resistant materials, helping to shield them from potentially damaging water.

Earning consistently positive ratings from customers, our staff has also awarded this model the #1 pick of the year. It scores extremely high among all of our evaluation factors. Take a look:

  • Comfy Fit: 10/10
  • Dry: 10/10
  • Water Resistance: 10/10
  • Customer Feedback: Outstanding!
  • Price: $$ – $$$$

Dubliner Rain Jacket from Helly Hansen

This is definitely on of our top picks this year, and for good reason. It performed well on all of our factors, even the common underperformers (like material and fit). Made out of 100% Polyester, this is definitely a winner over the more common Nylon (which is less expensive, but ultimately draws the ire of those who purchase it due to its light/flimsy nature and tendency to seep through with water). Polyester performs much better than Nylon in these regards.

As for size and fit, it tend to fit as expected (unlike some other jackets that might be too large or too small). So if you are an extra large, go ahead and order an extra large.

The fit is loose but not baggy, allowing for freedom of movement, and fully sealed for protection from wind, cold, and of course, rain.

High scores on all our factors! See below:

  • Comfy Fit: 10/10
  • Dry: 9/10
  • Water Resistance: 9/10
  • Customer Feedback: Outstanding!
  • Price: $$$

Breathable and Waterproof Rain Jacket from Paradox

A little break from the ordinary for this one. As you can see from the picture its not your usual rain coat, and looks more like a lab coat or hazmat suit than a standard windbreaker, but it checks off all the boxes and gets some great customer feedback, so it’s made our final list. Also not quite pictured is the hood (which is does indeed include). Fully waterproof and including vents for breathability, it a perfect selection for high intensity outdoors activity in the rain, such as running or biking.

Form fitting and coming with Velcro cuffs and adjustable waste, the 80/20 Nylon/Poly mixture gives a good feel and an excellent protection against the elements. It is coated with a water repellent finish to keep you both dry and warm.

Watertight II from Columbia

Just as The North Face is a heralded brand when it comes to winter weather wear, so is Columbia. For decades they have been providing some of the most rugged winter gear available on the market. This type of protection is helpful to have in the form of raincoats, and the factors that perform so well in winter coats carry over excellently. We highly doubt you will be disappointed with this choice.

Besides the brass tacks of comfort, warmth and protection from the elements, this also has some great style choices. We’ve counted 19 different colors available for this particular model, so if you want a jacket that will match your boots, iPhone case or new hair dye, this is the perfect choice for you.

Super light, this particular model is great for spring time or early fall rain showers. You’ll need to pair with a sweater for the colder weather (not unlike many other models listed here). Plenty of pockets to fit your cell phone (as one reviewer put it, it fits a iPhone 6S with plenty of room to spare).

PVC Raincoat from 32 Degrees

For those that are looking for an inexpensive option that will keep you dry in a heavy rain storm, this is a great pick for you. The PVC Weatherproof coat from 32 Degrees uses the unusual material of Polyvinyl Chloride (as opposed to the more common Polyester or Nylon), to make a waterproof coat that is light and perfect from those very rainy days.

Not meant to keep you warm, this will need to be combined with some additional layers if you are facing a very cold day. However its perfect for a light jacket that is comfortable to wear (doesn’t stick to the skin like some other unlined jackets).

These are sized appropriately (so if you are normally a large you can order a large). Very competitive in pricing, this makes a great buy if you need to pick up jackets for several children, or to be used as gifts.

Scoring very solidly on our evaluation factors, this item makes a perfect pick for those not too concerned about the very cold, but still want to stay dry during epic rainstorms.

  • Comfy Fit: 8/10
  • Warm: No, very light. Combine with sweater if necessary.
  • Dry: 10/10
  • Water Resistance: 8/10
  • Customer Feedback: Very Positive!
  • Price: $

Men’s Venture from The North Face

Another item from The North Face made it on our list. You can expect this one to be as high quality as any available rain slick on the market. Waterproof, seam sealed as well as breathable, this one checks off all the boxes when it comes to a reliable jacket. It’s even got the chin lining that will keep help protect your face from high winds.

It also comes in literally dozens of different colors and styles, so its perfect if you want something more than just the standard black/grey. What’s life without a little color in it anyway?

We particularly liked the Duck Green and Shady Blue Heather varieties, but you can choose your own based on your own personal color palette. The “Venture” is sure to make a great accompaniment to any fall or spring wardrobe.

  • Comfy Fit: 10/10
  • Warm: Moderate, somewhat light. Combine with sweater if necessary.
  • Dry: 10/10
  • Water Resistance: 10/10
  • Customer Feedback: Very Positive!

Distressed jeans are the in thing right now, specifically because they look well worn out. Distressed clothing is any garment that is made to look dirty or ripped during the manufacturing process.

For some reason, distressed jeans have made their way back into our closets of late, probably because they look stylish, cool and casual at the same time.

Intentional damage

Unlike normal jeans, distressed jeans are damaged in such a way that they look aged and worn out. The damage can be caused by abrading them with friction, chemicals or even bleach (for the classic faded designs). New jeans that look distressed are usually bleached to give the trademark faded look. The bleaching can cover the entire garment, or may be applied to cover part of the legs. The chemicals and bleach also serve to weaken the fabric, giving the fragile, threadbare appearance. The worn outlook can also be achieved through Stonewashing.

Tears, Holes and Rips

As is the rage today, distressed jeans can come with holes and tears to add to the old, worn out look. The holes and shreds vary, with some brands preferring slight cuts and rips, and some designers going all the way to tear the garments up. The edges are not seamed, allowing them to continue fraying. The bottom hems can also be abrased with sandpaper to make it look more worn out.

Home-made distressed jeans

If you have a thing for crafts and embroidery, then you can also make yourself a pair of distressed jeans from regular jeans in your closet. If you have some ancient jeans that you want to give a new life to, then distressing them is the perfect way to give them a new lease of life.

You will need bleaching solution that will be used to fade and weaken the denim fiber. You can use chalk to mark the areas you want to add rips and holes, then using small scissors, make holes at the areas you had previously marked with chalk. You can use a seam ripper to make crosswise tears at the knees and hem.

Make sure you slip on the jeans before beginning the process so that you can have the best view of where you’d like to create the holes and tears. After marking the spots, insert an old magazine into the leg to prevent the scissors (or a box cutter if you have one) from cutting through both layers of fabric.

If you are using a box cutter, slice through the fabric in horizontal strips. They don’t have to be equal in length. You can opt for two strips, each about two inches from the knee for the classic ripped look. Use short slicing motions, creating longer slices as you approach the mid-section of the area you want to slice through then end with short slicing motions. This gives a more natural look.

You can now use tweezers to fray out the ripped area. Pull out the vertical threads to leave horizontal threads hanging onto the fabric. You can skip alternate strips for a more defined look. Allow the frayed edges to remain as they are, or you can use sandpaper to braise the bottom hem. The result is a pair of distressed jeans that will look trendy as part of a casual outfit.
