Espadrilles: VIntage Look for your Designer Clothing

Espadrilles are casual flat or high-heel fashion sandals originating from the Pyrenees. They usually have a canvas or cotton fabric upper and a flexible sole made of rope or rubber material moulded to look like rope. The jute rope sole is the defining characteristic of an espadrille; the uppers vary widely in style. In Quebec French, however, espadrille is the usual term for running shoes.

This footwear for your designer clothes are always argumented whether they are fashionably chic, or horrendously out of style. The soles of modern espadrilles are usually wedges, with a gradual incline of the heel. You can find flat espadrilles or platform styles, too. Many are slip on or slide versions, but still others may feature ankle straps to keep the foot more secure. Though many of the variants, especially of less expensive brands, feature synthetic roping around the heels, a popular feature is the use of jute, a natural fiber, to make the roping.

Alexa Chung was recently seen in her espadrilles, making them a hot topic for discussion. Some of the espadrilles advantages are they don't pinch like heels, they don't give you blisters like pumps and they don't hurt the balls of your feet like wedges. They're much the perfect shoe, and after they came back to the fashion forefront and designer like Polo Ralph Lauren are now creating designs for this trend.

Some people genuinely think these are pretty ugly and unflattering on their feet, considering the original espadrilles were flat, boring and looked like men's slippers, but now they've been given a radical make over to bring them up to date. Woven wedge heels, bright canvas colors and nautical themes are now the new features of this footwear.

How to wear and accessorize this dress: Keep it simple, even jewelry may be already too much when wearing watercolor prints. Try too keep your accessories matched to your shoes in color and if possible also material. Just see yourself as the white, neutral canvas that the watercolor is painted on. If possible try to pick up either the darkest color of the dress or white for your choice of matching accessories and shoes. Less is more also when it comes to make up: only eye shadow or only lipstick will do.

How to wear it as a shirt: A great combination is to wear a watercolor print shirt with a white pair of jeans. This look kind of picks up the idea of the canvas again.

Shoulder Pad Trend: Another Designer Clothing Comeback

Leggings, headbands, and tapered jeans have all found there way back into the hearts and closets of many fashionable women. But there is one 80’s fashion trend that has long been mocked and thrown into the recesses of consignment stores everywhere that is now making a comeback, shoulder pads. This are a type of fabric-covered padding used in men's and women's designer clothes to give the wearer the illusion of having broader, and less sloping shoulders. In men's styles, shoulder pads are often used in suits, jackets and overcoats, usually sewn at the top of the shoulder and fastened between the lining and the outer fabric layer. While in women's clothing, their inclusion depends on the fashions of the day.

polo ralph lauren

Most fashion designers including Polo Ralph Lauren are creating styles for this and suggesting that the rest of us should cover up; indeed, they appear to be intent upon adding volumes of cloth to our shoulders. And many stylist think wearing shoulder pads can actually make your butt look smaller! According to them, your butt is seen in relativity to your shoulders, so the wider your shoulder width, the smaller your hips and butt look. All of which has been much admired by the hard-core fashion cognoscenti – the same types that rejoice in the return of power-dressing – but those of us who blanch at the thought of a revival of shoulder pads need not necessarily panic if you are possessed of a good pair of shoulders, then by all means reveal them.

When you want to pull off this trend, be creative and imaginative. Being simple is the key to have a nice look.

Fringe sandals: Earthly Footwear trend for your Designer Clothes

Feathers and fringes are two of this season’s biggest trends in this season's designer clothing style. Designers such as Polo Ralph Lauren are using these two elements to embellish everything from clothing, jewelry, and accessories. And one of this trend are the new fringe sandals.

polo ralph lauren

There are many ways on how to style with this earthly trend. One the best way to style fringe sandals is with denim. That could be a distressed pair of jeans or a denim skirt. This trend will also look best with clothing that only hints at earthiness, like a solid-color maxi dress or a peasant-cut silk top. The other style that you can try is with white linen pieces or flower ruffle skirts. The trend definitely goes into the hippie or bohemian direction but I think you can still pull it off elegantly based on the top and accessories you’re choosing.

It’s a shoe to have fun with and enjoy wearing this recent footwear trend.

Cutaway Trend: A Sexy Look in your Designer Clothing

When it comes to 2009 fashion trends the sheer clothing trend may be the ultimate proof that throughout the year less will be more. But it's not the year's only trend doing just that. Including cut-outs to your designer clothes is one way to have a knock-out sexy look without exposing too much skin. This trend has been seen recently on a whole bunch of celebrities including Leighton Meester, Selma Blair and Alexis Bledel.

polo ralph lauren

Cutaway fashion trend where intricate missing elements of fabric work to show off glimpses of the female figure in a sexual and sensual fashion typical of women's fashion. This trend is now designed by many designer such as Polo Ralph Lauren. Cut-outs have been coming up more and more recently and I've picked out a few of the most common looks so you can create this style for yourself:

Wear a cut-out it in the middle of a dress: This look exposes a little bit of your midriff, but still looks covered enough to be elegant.

Go for the cut-out shoulders: It is a pretty simple look to pull off and just adds a little something extra to a top or a dress.

Choose top or dress with a cut-out pattern around the neckline: It is really beautiful way to add some detail to an outfit and it really brings the focus upwards to the neck and face.

As a perfect look it should come as no surprise that the cutaway fashion trend has been transcribed into the year's fashion statement.

Revolutionize your Designer Clothes with Bohemian Style

In today's fashion in designer clothing, you can find this hippie style shirt in many fashion runways. Originally Bohemian was a lifestyle, But now it has been revolutionized into a complete fashion style. Bohemian chic is all about combining vintage pieces, which hold memories and giving them new life so they can carry on building memories. By simply flinging a throw or scarf over an old leather couch you will give it a new look and rejuvenate it. By keeping the style clean and adding hip-undertone pieces, you will give the room a lift.

polo ralph lauren

Owing to bohemian chic style being a combination of old and new, it is also a combination of different styles. Using different lush textures and intricate patterns essentially creates the true bohemian feeling. With rich rhapsody colors and brocade, different feels and looks combine to create the scene. Most designer like Polo Ralph Lauren are using this trend for his creations.

Because of the different styles, colors do tend to be rather neutral for the most part. Generally earthy colors with spicy colors scattered in between. Overall the ambiance must be light and airy, although candles and vintage lanterns create a different feel at dusk. The most natural thing is to combine them with distressed denim, pants and skirts or all lengths. That really seems to be the best match for these pieces because of their “organic” fabric feel. You might want to experiment with colored denim, but I wouldn’t go too crazy here. Black and white denim are good alternatives to the typical blue shades. Even though I tend to shy away from the obvious and literal way of styling a new trend, this one will have me wearing denim, leather shoes and hippie style accessories like feather earrings, turquoise gems, and patchwork handbags.

Your style may not be bohemian but the new peasant tops and folklore blouses are hard to resist this season.

Bondage Shoes: Tips On How to Match it with your Designer Clothing

The trend gained steam with the release of the Sex & The City movie. Polo Ralph Lauren and other designer create styles for this footwear trend. They look fine on models, but many girls who love the edginess are still afraid to wear them.

polo ralph lauren

The style of the shoe has some immediate pitfalls, first it is a bit on the heavy and bulky side. It can add pounds to your legs, something most woman want to avoid. Also, the shape of the shoe wrapping heavily around the ankle can create the illusion of short stumps which is in direct contradiction with the long stems we all hope to show off.

To avoid these perils, try matching this shoe with a short skirt or high waisted shorts. If you are uncomfortable showing that much leg, throw on a pair of leggings and it keeps the look edgy. Another good option is to pair them up with a great skinny jean. Choose a dark wash and it will help elongate your legs giving you a more proportioned appearance.

While it might look fashion forward in the other person it is just the sort of thing that will shorten your legs and visually divide your body. However, wearing an ultra feminine dress with these bondage shoes offers a great contrast is definitely a do. They are perfect for women that want to make a bold statement, without having to go overboard with the entire ensemble. If you really love this style, and want to give the illusion of long legs, just wear them with jeans.

Many things look good with sets, so be creative and imaginative on how this footwear can accentuate your style.

But now, other colorful stones such as rubies, garnets, and diamonds adore the once plain cufflink as a testament to elegant, contemporary masculinity. Even stainless steel, which was only seen in watches before, is increasingly being incorporated into fine men’s jewelry because of its platinum-like shine, durability, and affordability.

So don’t be shocked if one day, every man you meet is wearing some form of accessory. Jewelry-wearing is a trend that is becoming more and more accepted and popular.

Menswear Trend for Women's Designer Clothes

Today's trend in designer clothing is all about how great mens clothes look on women. The look seems to be taking over the world from runways to college hallways. Some girls look really cute in this girlified menswear trend which are cooler and fit better. This trend are now designed by different designers such as Polo Ralph Lauren.

Menswear fashions have made their way into female fashions. Take for example the womens vest. It’s obviously been converted from menswear. Womens vests are often tapered at the waist and contoured to fit our curves and can be very flattering when worn with a blouse and skirt or perhaps even some Denim stovepipes or dress pants. That would be a great outfit either for the office or for a casual night out depending upon which items you chose to wear with the vest. A womens western style belt and perhaps a studded purse would look great if you were wearing the vest with a pair of straight legged jeans. The belt has a feminine pattern, but it still has a bit of it’s masculine roots.

When you think about it, a lot of womens fashions today originated as menswear. In a way we’ve all been wearing mens clothing and probably didn’t even realize it. Vests, jeans, shirts, womens suits, belts. What other types of clothing can you think of that were originally only for men?

Instead of looking like a hot mess, we may look uber stylish with this trend. So, what do you think? Is the menswear look hot or not?

Grunge Trend: A New Way to Layer your Designer Clothing

Designers took an inspiration from the early 90's and brought back the grunge trend in designer clothing fashion. The grunge element are something we called distress, dirt, distort patterns, something really nasty in visual but not something you would run away from.

polo ralph lauren

Now the grunge trend means layering more fitted pieces and gaining a more elegant look. Go for the more chic touch: layers like belts and scarves, black leggings or tights and high heels. Let’s forget about oversized beanies, ankle leg warmers, knee ribbed socks or army boots.

The best thing about modern grunge is that it can be recreated very easily. The trend consists of easy to wear outfits that are brilliant for those summer days when you just don’t feel like donning shoulder pads and a waist belt. Simply throw on some denim shorts and a checked shirt and you’re done, while also being bang on trend.

Designers such as Polo Ralph Lauren are borrowing elements from that era to have an updated yet fresh new look. The alternative key trend of the era, which was more heavily represented on the catwalks, was grunge. Just as punks could be seen as a generation rebelling against their hippie 60's predecessor, the grunge generation was a stark contrast to the new romantic and power dressing of the 80's that came before it.

Both the punk and grunge fashion movements were heavily inspired by the music of the time. Grunge bands such as Nirvana, Pearl Jam, Mud Honey and Hole introduced the not so famous, layered, un-groomed casual look that became so popular. In today's fashion, the modern grunge that was seen on the S/S ’09 catwalks has a more structured feel.

Fashion always repeats itself, that is why fashion trends run in cycles. Past trends starting to make a comeback as the fashion era of choice. Don’t be afraid, it’s not as awful as it sounds.

Boyfriend Dressing Trend for Designer Clothing Fashion

Boyfriend dressing is one of the key trends in designer clothes this year. It started a few seasons ago with boyfriend jeans and then the boyfriend cardigan. But, it has developed into a more sophisticated style, with the boyfriend blazer, which when worn correctly, actually emphasizes the female frame rather than hides it. Most designer in fashion world like Polo Ralph Lauren usually create styles for this trend.

Boyfriend dressing is for women who have style. The masculine look is softened with feminine touches such as layers of chains or art deco jewelry. The secret of this season's boyfriend dressing is to keep the look tough but tender, it’s about dressing like a man but still retaining the femininity of a woman.

Consider these tecniques on how to pull off this trend:

Go for a masculine outfit with the touch of femininity: Choose masculine loose clothes, but still with a touch of femininity in one of this season’s blush tones, or wear a chic oversized loose fitting shirt.

Contrast masculine with feminine: Wear a soft, delicate blouse under a blazer or a tailored suit, or choose a top in a romantic print.

Emphasize your curves and cleavage: Show your feminine side with the use of skin-tight t-shirts under baggy jackets, or wear a denim mini or one of this season’s sculpted skirts.

Layer on jewelry and other accessories: Go for the gilt chains and cuffs, and accessorize with a luxe leather portfolio or satchel. Pile them high to catch this trends look.

Show off high-heeled statement shoes: Roll-up trouser legs on peg-leg pants and jeans and If skyscraper heels are a no-no, then don on a pair of pumps or oxford brogues.

Keep your look natural: Forget fake tans and lashings of make-up.

Boyfriend dressing does not need to break the bank, with a little imagination you can work a style which can still allow you to feel ladylike yet gives you lots of attitude.

Earth Shoe: A Comfy Footwear for your Designer Clothing

Earth shoes were an unconventional style of shoe invented were the soles were thick and the heels were thin, so wearing them one walked heel-downward. In an era when women’s shoes featured high heels, narrow toes and dangerously skinny arches, the odd looking shoes attracted the attention of the fashion world and the popular media. With their wide toe boxes,"negative" heels and rocker bottoms, they were often referred to as the ugliest shoes ever created.

polo ralph lauren

Like most fads and designer clothing and footwear trend, earth shoes had their supporters. Earth shoes were seen as a healthy and body-friendly alternative to traditional 'fashion’ footwear. The main feature of the Earth shoe is the 'negative heel’, created by a thick fore sole and thin heel. The bed of the shoe is designed to place the heel lower than the ball and toes of the foot, which encourages better posture and a more natural gait.

Earth shoes are perfect for the type of person that needs comfy shoes. Most designer in fashion world like Polo Ralph Lauren create styles of clothes that can fit these comfy footwear. The look is fresh and they have style that can satisfy your taste.

Wide toe boxes: The wide toe box serves an important purpose. It allows the toes to spread naturally and grip the 'ground’ as they’re meant to do. Liberating cramped toes alone was enough to make the Earth shoe a popular style.

Negative heel: This encourages better posture, according to the makers of Earth shoes, and also encourages the calf and other muscles of the legs to work harder.

Rocker bottoms: It helps the heel to absorb the impact of the step, then the foot rocks forward as the body’s weight moves to center over it. Finally, the heel comes up off the ground and the toes grip to push off into the next step.

Happily, today's Earth shoes come in a variety of styles and colors, meaning fans of these comfortable shoes can now have both form and function.

Finding a Designer Clothing that will Fit your Shape

Finding the right designer clothing that flatters to your body shape can be a difficult task, but it doesn't have to be. We are all shaped differently, and this is not a bad thing. What you need to do to look your very best, is to emphasize your best assets, and hide down your flaws. Most clothing that are created by famous fashion designer like Polo Ralph Lauren are designed to help emphasize one's asset. One woman may think she has positive feature, while the other may think it's not. Learning how to dress on what you have is key. Here are some figure fixes for a more confident you.

polo ralph lauren

Large Breast: The key here is not to look heavy. An important first step that any woman with large breast needs to do is find a well fitting bra. Don't just buy any old bra, but bras with under-wire and wide straps are a good choice. For your tops, you will want to find shirts that have an open neckline, such as v-shaped, round or square necklines. Also look for tops that are fitted at the waist and have more room up on top. Avoid high necklines and unfitted tops. Halters are also not a good idea, because it is hard to find a bra to wear with this kind of top and your breasts always need good support.

Small Breast: Most clothes look better on you, and if you want a little extra on top you can use padded bras and other extras that enhance your breast. For your tops, you will want to find shirts like shoulder baring tanks with high necklines. Halter tops were made for you. Avoid lower necklines; these will only emphasize your chest. Avoid corset type blouses that are fitted at the waist, these are designed to accentuate the breast.

Big Bottom: Tighter fitting pants will look much better than baggy droopy ones. Some ladies have bottoms that are not in proportion to the rest of there body, for them there a few things to keep in mind. Wide leg lower rise trousers are a great choice. The lower waist cuts the bottom area in half, which in turn makes the bottom appear smaller. Also keep pocket flaps off the pockets as this only adds to the definition of your bottom. Another thing to keep in mind is to look for darker colors for your bottom half. Avoid at all cost high-waisted jeans. The main reason for this is simple really. Pants with a high waist make the butt look bigger because there is more fabric. Jeans in lighter washes should not even be considered.

No Bottom: You will want to look for cheek lifting jeans that have back pockets that are spread further apart. This will help your bottom look fuller. Also jeans with flaps on the back pockets will add definition.

Sweater: For All - Year Designer Clothing

A sweater is a relatively heavy garment intended to cover the torso and arms of the human body and usually worn over a shirt, blouse, T-shirt or other designer clothing top. Sweaters are common in every man’s wardrobe. They are astounding and versatile that is why Polo Ralph Lauren create styles for it.

polo ralph lauren

Cashmere Sweaters – The Ultimate Choice: Cashmere is one of the most luxurious things you can have in your wardrobe. Not only is it ultra soft, it can be worn year round.

V-neck and Crew-neck Sweaters: They are so easily worn over a tee and with jeans for a more casual look. The same sweater can be worn with slacks and over a button up shirt for the office or a date. They are a must in every wardrobe.

Cardigans: They are simply ideal for layering and there are so many ways to wear them over a tee, over a button down, under a sport jacket, with jeans cords, and slacks.

Polos: Often they are made with cotton and have short sleeves. They are a perfect compliment to khakis for those casual wear.

Turtleneck Sweaters: Turtlenecks are obviously reserved for the colder months. The fit of a turtleneck looks best when more fitted to the body and neck. With that said, avoid them if you are even somewhat heavy, it only accentuates your less than perfect physique.

Mens wear them often and throughout the year because of how comfortable they are and how they add texture and richness to an ensemble.
