Eight Fashion Tips for Busy Moms on a Budget

Saturday, January 12th, 2013

Struggling to stay fashionable AND bring up kids? Use these pointers to help you keep your wardrobe up to date without blowing the budget.

Too many women lose track of themselves in the hectic day-to-day life that goes with bringing up kids. It creeps up on you without you realizing, until you suddenly realize you’re out of fashion and feeling dowdy. These tips will help you stay on top.

Use Layers

By layering clothes as demonstrated at Rock.in, you can get maximum use out of every garment and it’s a technique that’s especially useful during the colder winter months when you want extra warmth but don’t want to feel too bundled up. Layer t-shirts over vest, layer short-sleeves over long sleeves and contrast patterned and plain fabrics.

Notice Trends

The key to keeping up with fashion is to buy little and often. Keeping one eye on changing fashion trends means you won’t suddenly wake up on morning and discover your whole wardrobe is hopelessly outdated. Buy magazines, watch fashion shows on tv, or keep up with fashion blogs online and websites like Rock.in, then shop accordingly to keep your wardrobe updated.

Spring/Summer 2013 – Style and Fashion Trends

Monday, November 12th, 2012

From head to toe, the upcoming style trends will have some surprises and a few expected classics. The statement “Fashion repeats itself” is not a negative notation but rather a cultured idiom for the history of fashion. Fashion weeks all over the world have introduced the most vibrant trends for the season. Let’s take a closer look at the creation of some of the more evident trends.

Skinny Jeans in various lengths and colors are reminiscent of the slim fitting pant of the 1950’s. It was a cultural statement for freedom of expression through music and style. Today’s version of the old classic remains a freedom of expression but also pays tribute to an obvious more curvy image and the woman who are proud of their curves. Skinny Jeans offer no discrimination to shape or size. These classics are perfect for all who wish to exert a chic and fashionable look. The alternate lengths, colors, textures and patterns make assembling today’s fashionable look as easy as 1, 2, and 3:

  1. Select your perfect pair of skinny jean.
  2. Add a statement making tee shirt, top or blouse.
  3. Then, accessories with jewelry, a scarf and shoe.

I’ve been doing some research to draw some insight into what you can expect from late 2012 early 2013 fashion.  Based on some research from European sources, it is looking like in late Winter 2012 and early 2013 we should be seeing the following:

Women’s Cut and Sew

 

1. Turtle Neck Jersey Dress

(I could not find a suitable photo to represent the two-tone look we will be seeing.  Imagine your classic turtle neck sweater with the sleeves and the collar a different tonal color than the body of the sweater.)
