No matter what their size, most women want to look slimmer. By wearing clothes that are appropriate for your body shape you can look as much as 10 pounds slimmer.

It has been said that of all the pieces of jewelry in the world, a pearl necklace is the only thing that a woman should not be without. And that’s no wonder, for a pearl necklace is the embodiment of classic sophistication and timeless elegance. It goes with a variety of outfits, from casual day wear to formal evening attire. And depending on the type of pearl and color, there are various pearl necklace styles suitable for the very young, those enjoying their golden years, and almost everyone else in the middle.
The price of a pearl necklace depends on the quality of its pearls. Saltwater pearls are generally more expensive than freshwater ones, which are cultured. The sheen and the thickness of the pearls’ nacre also affect the price, as well as the size and roundness of the pearls themselves. Pearl necklaces of various colors are available on the market. Smaller pearls in light hues of blue or pink are usually more suitable for young children, while the creamier, ivory-toned pearls are preferred by older women. Jewelry pieces made from black pearls are very, very expensive, since these pearls are so rare.
According to Chinese
“A diamond is forever,” as the old saying goes. The late actress Marilyn Monroe said it best: “a diamond is a girl’s best friend.” So much tribute has been paid to the everlasting glory of the diamond, which is among the most valuable (and expensive!) precious stones in existence. Is it any wonder then that diamond jewelry is so fashionable? Diamond earrings, necklaces, rings, bracelets – many of these are regarded as works of art.
The diamond is the most unadulterated of all the gemstones composed of a single pure element. It is also the hardest transparent substance that exists. It is for this that the diamond stands as a symbol of strength, purity of spirit, and even physical chastity.
Diamond earrings first reached the height of fashion in Europe in the 18th century, just before the Renaissance era. To this day many people, even men, wear diamond earrings as a classy adornment. George Michael and Prince are only two of the many male celebrities who have been known to use diamonds as ear decorations. From time to time, David Beckham of soccer fame sports the odd diamond earring worth around $12,300.
Diamonds emphasize superiority
Just because your feet are larger than the normal size of shoes that you see in the regular stores doesn’t mean that you have to pay exorbitant prices to have special shoes made just for you. Many online retailers specialize in large size shoes for both women and men and they are no more expensive that what you would pay anywhere else. Large shoe sizes from 9 to 14 are hard to find sizes and there are women who do have frustrating searches to find the right shoes.
Sometimes a search for large size womens shoes results in buying a large size man shoes just to get something comfortable to wear. However, when it comes to dressing up for an evening, these large size shoes are often not appropriate or stylish enough to suit a dress or skirt. If you are wearing slacks you might get away with wearing a shoe style designed for a man, but you would probably spend your time trying to hide your feet.
Women like to have fashionable shoes to suit every occasion. Small strapless designs and sandals are available in large size shoes and you don’t have to scrimp and
Fashion is changing. But one thing is should be constant – black. Nothing is boring about the newest fashion in New York and Paris. This is a great tip, which professionals know that make models look brilliant. Black is the basis for two important looks, according to Sally Singer, Vogue’s fashion news director. “The interesting thing about black this season is that it’s either used as a pop art basic against white, a ’60s look that shows the graphic nature of black and white. (Christian) Dior did it well. … Or, you see a mixing of textures and tones of black. Black velvet, black gauze, black silk or viscose. … There’s varying amounts of light that goes through it to make the black sometimes look gray, blueish or brownish,” she says.
Another reason black is great for fashion, is its mess with fantastic jewelry. Style.com’s executive fashion director Candy Pratts Price “You could wear a black beaded necklace on a black cashmere sweater, which will look very ’40s, or you could also do it with silver — the ’60s — or with pearls — the ’50s.”
Black with a white skirt is a great fashion item.

My answer is…why not? Now, let’s take define casual clothes for a moment here. Casual is defined as relaxed, comfortable, sporty, laid-back and informal. Now, if that’s the case, I don’t see a problem with wearing casual clothes clubbing. Obviously, we want to look good when we go clubbing because of the fact that we either want to attract the opposite sex, look classy or perhaps keep our image intact.

Perhaps, with a popular saying or an expressive t-shirt or something. Casual clothes that give you a personality boost. Casual clothes that gives you character – no, let me say that again, casual clothes that enhance your personal character.

Earrings have been a part of human culture since 3000 BC.

They have become an international symbol of Hawaii. Typically made of either cotton or silk, Hawaiian shirts are more than a trend; in fact, they have been popular for decades.
Hawaiian shirts have become so popular through the years that many couples decide that Hawaiian shirts would appropriate attire for their wedding. This is even truer for couples choosing to marry on the beach — especially a Hawaiian beach.

There are so many handbags on offer, how to select the one that would complement your figure and go with most of your outfits? See fashion expert tips.
What purse style would work best with your figure?
Never mind the current fashion: your handbag should first of all complement your figure. A tiny purse on a largish woman looks a bit silly. But even though large bags are in fashion now, don’t go overboard, otherwise the bag will distract attention from your person.
If you are slim and tall, go for a round or square shaped purse. If you are not very tall, a bottle shaped handbag would look best. And, of course, a not very large backpack works perfectly for any figure.
Most handbags have adjustable handles, so make use of them. Large bags should never hang at the level of your hips: if necessary shorten the handle, so the bag comes to your waist line. And if you wear a backpack, it should not hang down over your backside: adjust the handles so it is just above your waist. This looks better, doesn’t put as much pressure on your lower back, and

If you like riding your motorcycle or enjoy biking in general, you will really benefit from wearing biking sunglasses. Not only do the biking sunglasses protect your eyes from the sun and make it easier for you to see, but these sunglasses made for cycling or motorcycling also protect you from the wind and bits of dirt and dust that fly around.
Although biking sunglasses are mainly for fashion, they are essential for any biker that has sensitive eyes or wear contact lenses. Most cyclists wear goggles, and motorcyclists wear helmets, but many of them also wear their regular prescription sunglasses as cycling sunglasses. Oakley was the first company to come up with designer sunglasses such as biking and cycling sun glasses. They have truly polarized lenses to offer the best clarity of vision, which you need when you are on the road.

The latest line of biking sunglasses to hit the market make you look like an insect with the design of the frames. Cyclists like them though because they
