How to make a fashionable statement when attending a same-sex ceremony.
Choosing the perfect wedding attire is quite a daunting task for about almost everybody invited to a nuptial, so here are some tips from The Gloss to guarantee a fashion ensemble that will have you turning heads, but of course, not outshining the brides and grooms.
The question, "what summer fashions do men like?" is better posed as "what doesn't he hate?"
Most of y'all (and I mean ladies), think men like spring and summer clothes strictly via a less-is-more axiom. And while nothing could be closer to the truth, it's not the whole truth. In many ways what guys like about summer fashion (and women's clothing in general) can be best measured in reverse. We're better at telling you what we hate and here's what it is.
Show some skin! And other secrets of what men want you to wear.
I say this with love and good humor—men get older, they don't really grow up. Most learn how take on responsibility, be good parents and partners, and live like good citizens, but some portion of them remains in the locker room. So when I asked my dear husband his opinion on what he likes to see women wear, his immediate reply was "nothing." I wasn't surprised. After pressing him for something more helpful, he supplied this list: First, a little about "nothing." Men worry far less about the appearance of their middle-aged bodies than we do about ours. We're more inclined to cover up what we think is less than perfect, but they don't see us nearly as critically as we see ourselves. We may see a tummy and thighs we wish were firmer, but they see a naked woman that they're crazy about. As long as they still like to look, there's a live spark in there. So stoke it!
Wondering what to wear to all those summer weddings? Read this quick-and-easy guide.
Ahhh, summer has finally arrived. And with the long, lazy days and super-hot temperatures comes another seasonal staple: Weddings! Excited yet? Well, you should be. All you really need is the perfect outfit. Yes, there are nuptial-attire rules, but they're not that hard to master. (I can totally help. Just read on.)
Guys listen to their wives and girlfriends' fashion advice, and let them choose their clothes, too.
As women, by nature, we always knew we were a bit more fashion-savvy than our male counterparts, but we never realized just how much sway we really had in their style choices. When it comes to male wardrobes, guys rely on their wives and girlfriends to assemble more than half of the contents. Australia's Herald Sun reports that women pick out and purchase 51 percent of the clothing in their guys' closets, whereas the men themselves only buy 30 percent.
Need to quickly transform your cleavage from casual to business appropriate? Don't miss the Cleava.
It's always been a dream of mine to have a small piece of fabric, conspicuously shaped like a thong, to snap on to my bra in the rare occasion that my cleavage just isn't cutting it. Since there are plenty of everyday situations where a bodacious rack peaking through the v-neck of a cute top isn't appropriate—work, church and meeting the boyfriend's parents—the Cleava was designed to help women go from corporate to casual in no time, without the painstaking task of putting on a pesky camisole.
Avoid these fashions don'ts while choosing clothes for your Memorial Day and summer dates.
I'm sure y'all are anxiously awaiting the long Memorial Day weekend. Perhaps for a big date? Or maybe just a low-key outing with your S.O. and some friends? Either way, you're going to have to wear some clothing for each fine event. And if you're anything like me, you'll spend an hour staring into your closet, completely bewildered, while trying to decide. However, I can help you out just a bit. Here are seven looks you can leave in your closet this weekend. (Actually, to be clear, I'll just say it: Never wear these on a date!)
Vajazzling for men—who knew guys liked body bling just as much as women?
Listen up, guys: Prince Albert's (aka genital piercings) are out, and pejazzling is in! Much like vajazzling, pejazzling is when a man grooms his business so that he can dress it up with Swarovski crystals. The crystals are stick ons, and they come in all kinds of fun shapes (right now, the most popular stick-ons are red lips and crosses).
Princess Beatrice's fascinator inspired a few of these toned-down hat trends for summer.
While you might be asking yourself who would want to wear a Beatrice-esque fascinator, there are actually a lot of pretty, and more subtle, versions on the market in muted colors and smaller accents. In fact, we're going to suggest you wear one. They're the season's hottest new trend in hats and hair accessories. Plus, we have six more great looks to consider for your summer dates.
Take cues from the Kate, William, the wedding party and guests when compiling your spring wardrobe.
From the moment I saw Kate Middleton step out of that car and make her way into Westminster Abbey, I knew I was witnessing an iconic style moment. Looking every bit as elegant and poised as Grace Kelly, the new princess was exquisite as she made the long walk down the aisle, donning an Alexander McQueen confection with lace sleeves and a ten-foot train, to meet her prince at the altar... OK, if the royal-wedding fashion didn't make you swoon, then we so need to find you a sense of sartorial romanticism. If you need a little help, allow me. Even beyond Princess Catherine's obvious trend-setting gown, there was a lot to love about the fashion at Friday's nuptials.
Will Kate wear a wedding gown with sleeves? A veil? How long will the train be?
Like the rest of the fashion universe, I am dying to see Kate Middleton arrive at Westminster Abbey on Friday. The anticipation and speculation has been swirling since November: What will her gown look like? Who will design it? Will she sport a train? A veil? Lace sleeves? I'm beyond glad the wedding is this week, because I'm not sure I can wait much longer! No one knows for sure what Kate will wear. Her style choices have been kept under lock and key. But it's wedding week, so let's celebrate by furthering the speculation. I've compiled a few predictions for Kate's wedding-day look. In just a few days, we'll know if I'm spot-on or if I've totally missed the mark (finally!).
