Straw Hats

There are straw hats to suit virtually any and everyone’s taste. There are bucket styles, ones with wide brims, and more classic cowboy and lifeguard-type varieties that have chin straps. Although most are typically kept in their traditional neutral, straw color, there are also many options for colored hats as well. Some also come with a colorful bandana trim for a bit of whimsical charm. Therefore, it is easy to find a style for any sort of setting, whether it is lounging around at a resort or doing work in the yard.

One of the best things about straw hats is that they expertly mix style and functionality. Although wide brimmed hats come in many different shapes and in virtually every color of the rainbow, they play an important part in keeping one cool during the hot summer months and in shielding the face from the harsh and damaging UV rays of the sun. The larger the hat, the more sun protection and, luckily, these large hats have become all the rage among resort patrons and beach goers alike.

Sweat Dresses for Winter

For one, sweater dresses must be paired up with the perfect leggings. In fact, what you wear with these totally depends on your choice. For any dark or light colored sweater, black leggings may be ideal. You can also go for dark stockings, as long as they protect you from the winter chills. If you do not prefer wearing leggings at all, you can always go for jeans. In fact, skinny jeans are very commonly worn with sweater dresses. You just need to make sure that you match the right color with your dress. For example, while red skinny jeans are very popular, they should not be worn with a dress unless it is a black or grey one.

Wear Drop Or Dangle Earrings

Danglers hang below the earlobe and they move with the body. The chain or wire used to attach the beads, stones or charms is flexible and loose. A hook is the usual hanger for this style which facilitates the movement. It can be a single strand or branch out into several. The lengths also go from one extreme to the other-just below the earlobe all the way to the shoulder.

How to choose?

  • Comfort: Every woman has given up comfort for style at some point in her life. Shoes and earrings are the most common accessories that fall into that category. However, for these two styles it is important to choose the lightest weight possible because not only does weight play a role, but gravity is a factor as well. Less so for the drop style, but danglers can really wreak havoc on an earlobe and the hole.

We’ve all seen those elongated holes that look red ugly and red after years of wearing heavy pieces. Choose the perfect pair, but use supportive backings and limit

Fishtail Parka

The style of the coat gave the coat its name

With respect to the fishtail element of the name, this is down to the fact that the coat is notably longer in the back than it is in the front. The coat was designed in this fashion to allow it to be tied around the wearer’s upper legs to provide added protection from the elements.

Silk Scarf Worn Bandana Style

In most cases, bandanas consist of large pieces of cotton material. To create a fashionable bandana, the designers often take the basics and twist the norm. This could be the style and/or the material. If you want to create a new, yet practical look, grab a piece of silk and use it to make a bandana.

Origins Of Fancy Dress

Fancy dress is a direct evolution of the old tradition of masquerade balls, the practice of dressing up in elaborate dresses and suits, combined with extravagant decorated masks concealing the partygoers’ faces. They originated in 15th century Italy as part of the Carnival season, a festive period preceding Lent, where rich foods would be consumed and costumes would be worn as part of a lengthy celebration.

Carnivals never spread too far outside of Italian cities, though the art of the masquerade proved more popular. By the 17th century they were widely used as a part of celebrations across Europe, and reached England in the 18th century.

However, they were soon met with wide moral opposition. Masquerades were limited to the cultured upper classes, and the anonymity they afforded individuals in the public eye often led to casual and unrespectable romantic encounters, which became the topic of many short stories and plays published in the era. Seen as a sign of depravity there were many attempts to deter the practice, but none were successful, particularly after Queen Victoria expressed her affection for the practice herself, cementing the popularity throughout the 19th century and onwards.

Bracelets With Western Motifs

A cuff bracelet is generally constructed in one piece, out of a solid material. This material is usually metal, and can be any kind of metal. Lightweight aluminum is easy to wear and affordable. Stainless steel is durable and classic. Precious metals such as silver and gold add sparkle and shine. The metal will be pressed or hammered into a thin sheet and cut into a rectangular shape (or sometimes a more elaborate shape). This shape is then curved into a C shape that fits on the wrist. The bracelet is rigid, but just flexible enough to allow size adjustments for the wearer’s comfort. It is generally worn rather tightly, so it does not move around irritatingly, get in the way of one’s hands, or make distracting noise.

A cuff bracelet can be utterly plain and still be lovely, but why stop there? Showcase your western style with a traditional motif. The silversmiths who make these gorgeous bracelets often have a library of hundreds of motifs to choose from to customize your jewelry, as well as having a number of ready-to-wear pieces in stock.

Animals are a very popular choice for Western motifs. This makes sense,
