The woman in black garments tries out Life Saver colours [Fashion]5/13/2013 3:27:02 PM
´╗┐The woman in black garments tries out Life Saver colours For me, black is the new black and it always looks great with black. My brights tend to be grey, and maybe camel which looks excellent with . . . black. But for a few of colour I find I exhausted by their energy about 15 minutes after putting them on I been in the dark since the 1980s, when I lost my mind (as many did) and thought baggy purple velour pants and Life Saver-toned sweaters were the way to go. Black is grown up. Dignified. Elegant. Coco Chanel stuck to black, cream and beige pretty much, and she knew what she was doing. Colour is for kids. But the eye does adapt, and this season colour in tones ranging from acid to ice cream saturates every fashion magazine and blog I follow, and is so much the story for spring that it is actually difficult to find anything darker than French blue in most shops. As a result, not-black is starting to look good to me. And so if a change is called for, I will dig deep and do my very best to try it. Recently, The Bay downtown held a kind of fashion show-cum-seminar on spring trends which meant colour and print. I signed up; a few gentle lessons might be called for if I to break the habit of a lifetime. The Bay fashion director Suzanne Timmins enthusiastically hosted the event, and spelled out not only the trends but a few of the styling rules clashing colours together but make sure they of the same group: hot colours with hot, and the cooler aquatic tones with same. But to complicate matters, many brights and neons look pretty great with neutrals. In spite of my inclinations, I was taken with a Pringle of Scotland sweater in acid yellow and navy, worn with a pair of Jason Wu indigo blue pants with a band of black (whew!) down each side. Alas, when I later visited The Room, the posh department at The Bay where these items were said to reside, they were nowhere to be found sold, perhaps, to a better student. Instead, I came across a bright blue pair of pants by Joseph which were close enough to black, comparatively speaking, that I felt I could safely give them a whirl. There was but a size 2 left on the rail, normally way too small, but I tried them anyway and shock of shocks they fit! Vanity sizing or no, I was thrilled and immediately thought of the amazing chocolate croissant I would feed myself for lunch, poor skinny thing that I am, and left the dressing room for a better look. Alas, vanity sizing dies a death in front of the mirror and my rather thick thighs are done no favours by being highlighted in colour. The helpful salesperson hovering around me suggested a long tunic. I decided to go quite a bit down market. I new to colour and this might not be a trend I want to invest in too heavily, so I headed to the Gap, which is circus-bright right now. I saw a pair of jeans in superpowered egg-yolk yellow that seemed kind of mad country club preppy, but if blue didn work on these gams, the world isn ready to see them covered in anything that glows in the dark. A neon pink top seemed to wash any natural colour out of my entire person, ditto the acid green and sunshine yellow. I recall why black is my go-to. It is fail-safe. And while people might point and laugh at the funny lady in pink and orange, no one blames you for wearing black.

The color and style for a simple wedding dress must meet the basic requirement of elegant, presentable and feminine. Some wedding dresses design nowadays still constitutes religion and culture of the wedding participants. However here I would like to share with you seven traditional wedding dresses in the world. Malay "Baju Kurung" Unlike other ">simple beach wedding dresses, "Baju Kurung" is the traditional Malay costume worn by Malay bride during their wedding ceremony. This simple wedding dress did required specific skills for sewing but it is not complicated as kimono and "Hanfu". This dress is widely worn by women in Brunei, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Myanmar and Cambodia. However, beside "Baju Kurung", other famous traditional costumes like "Kebaya" also worn by some Malay women on their wedding occasions. The baju kurung wedding gown has been sewing by a special fabric called "songket" which containing lots gold and silver string within. Many of the young designers has combined the fashion styles and concept for these two dresses and produced another type of costume called "kebarung".

"Lehnga" used as wedding dresses in some locations in India but not applicable for all. However, some Indian bride still prefers to wear "Sari" as their wedding costume comparing to "Lehnga".

Besides it also consider one of the cheap ">simple wedding dresses in the world, cheap not in terms of the quality but cheap in the prices. This beautiful elegant dress has been justified as the traditional wedding dresses in Vietnam. Vietnamese bride would need to wear it during their wedding ceremony. However, the style worn today for "Aodai" is modernization of the "ao ngu than" and inspired by Manchu in the 19th century. "Ao dai's" are classic examples for simple wedding dresses as it is only constitute a tight fitting silk tunic fabric fashion style. They are also equivalent garment for Vietnam man as their wedding gown called "ao gam".
