Basic Clothing Wardrobe for Women
Women’s Basic Wardrobe Clothing
There is no perfect basic wardrobe that applies to all. A basic wardrobe takes into consideration lifestyle or clothing for all of our activities. If you are a hockey coach your wardrobe is going to be a lot different than a corporate lawyer's. However when we choose a basic article of clothing it is something we plan on wearing many times (getting our money’s worth). These items are like good investments since they will reward us many times in the future. When buying your basics purchase quality pieces, not necessarily the most expensive.
Dare to wear Double DenimDouble Denim is a trend that sparks many a fashion debate: love it or hate it? Fashion forward or fashion faux pas? Denim delight or denim disaster? The majority fall into the latter opinion, usually due to the painful memories of a time when B*Witched sported identical Canadian Tuxedo's in their 'C'est La Vie' video, and Britney and Justin wore those matching denim ensembles at the 2001 American Music Awards (if you have managed to successfully repress this horrifying image from your mind, let me remind you: they wore stonewashed denim, bedazzled with rhinestones denim, patchwork and distressed denim... and there was even a denim cowboy hat.) But they say that time is the greatest healer, and twelve years later, the fashion world have forgiven, forgotten, and are ready to rock double denim once again. A wave of denim on denim ensembles were sent down the runways at Mui Mui and Philip Lim, countless celebs (including Rihanna and Alexa Chung to name a few) have been papped wearing it, and any respectable fashion blogger is blogging it.

Edgy Style Mixing Prints
To mix prints takes even the most seasoned fashionista into dangerous trend waters. In the fashion world mixing prints and patterns was once a fashion don’t, but today it is a ragging fashion trend that continues to persist season after season. Mixing prints for work or play can be done tastefully, boldly, and artistically. So if you want to expand you fashion sense play around with prints, patterns, and textures. Here are some guidelines to follow when mixing prints.
Wearing Prints and Patterns
When choosing things to wear, we want to accentuate the positive. The first thing to think about when selecting prints and patterned clothing is scale. Large prints will call attention to you and your size. Small women don't look good in clothing with large prints and patterns. Large women are already noticeable and will just call attention to their size when wearing large prints and patterns. Scale the prints to your size and you're "good to go."
Update Your Look With Stripes
Hot summer fashions are featuring stripes! Fashions with stripes are going in all directions and on everything from shoes, handbags, tops, bottoms and dresses. The great thing about stripes is everyone can update their look wearing stripe accessories like shoes, scarves, handbags, etc. or clothing that has striped trim or accents and give their look an instant fashion update.
How to Find a Perfect Prom Dress

Begin by searching magazines and online to see what is available and get an idea of what’s out there and price ranges. Then you can set a budget (ball park figure) for what you need to spend. Keep in mind you’ll need shoes, jewelry, purse and a wrap in addition to a prom dress. These items should be included in your budget. If you are getting your hair done and a manicure and pedicure they will need to be included also.
