Negro, negro y más negro. Sé que aún es verano pero no puedo evitar pensar en las nuevas colecciones que asoman ya en las tiendas llenas de colores oscuros y miles de texturas.Qué le voy a hacer si me encanta la ropa de otoño/invierno? De todas formas, no se si será que el espíritu londinense se me ha subido a la cabeza, pero ultimamente estoy aún más obsesionada con este tipo de inspiración. Enjoy.

Black, black, black. I know it's still summer but as I'm starting to see around the shops their new collections full of dark colors and cool textures, it makes me wanna winter to come asap. What could I do if I just love fall/winter clothes? Anyway, it might be the London spirit that came to me or something, that recently I'm even more obsessed with this kind of inspiration. Enjoy.

How to Wear a Cape

How to Wear a Cape

how-to-wear-a-cape_112910

Pictured: Hooded Duffle Cape | $160 at Topshop, Shirt with Tailored Front | 25.99 GBP (approx $40.50) at Zara, Black Ribbed Ankle Leggings | $36 at Topshop, Studded Ballet Flats | $138 at J Crew, and City Bag with Straps | 59.99 GBP (approx $93.60) at Zara. Note: For US customers, Zara items are available in store only.

Supersize your style this Fall with a cape worthy of a style superhero. Deliciously dramatic, the cape delivers an exaggerated silhouette to play with - and keeps you warm all the while. Do as Sofia Coppola does and have some fun with the dramatic cape with an equally exaggerated silhouette. We love how she pairs her voluminous cape with something super skinny on the bottom, juxtaposing an elegant "uptown" cape with a "downtown" pair of leggings. Here’s how to get the look:

1. Start with a tailored white button down shirt and a pair of skinny black leggings or trouser pants. Bonus points for picking a pair that hits just above the ankle.



2. Layer on your voluminous cape, creating a gorgeous big-over-small silhouette.



3. Finish off the look with a structured bag and a pair of ballet flats, which pair perfectly with the cropped pants.

Extremely Curvy Petites

The Best Dresses for Extremely Curvy Petites



Q: At 5′1, 110 pounds, and a size 32DD, I cannot find a dress that fits me correctly. Strapless dresses are impossible. I really need a dress that I can wear a bra with and that doesn’t show off too much cleavage.



A:
For maximum figure flattery, we’d recommend a scoopnecked or v-necked dress that hits at knee-length. The neckline will allow you to wear a bra (and won’t show too much cleavage), and the knee length hemline will be especially flattering on your petite frame. Here’s Omiru’s top picks for figure flattering dresses for extremely curvy petites:

Our $$$ Picks:

Maggy London Cascade Front Chiffon Dress

Maggy London Cascade Front Chiffon Dress

Isn’t this color simply gorgeous? The flowy fabric will drape nicely over your curves, though the hemline may need to be raised to knee length for maximum figure flattery.

Adrianna Papell Empire Waist Charmeuse Dress

Adrianna Papell Empire Waist Charmeuse Dress

The color is great, as is the neckline. What we don’t like is the full blouson sleeves–which may be too much for your petite frame.

Our $$ Picks:

Calvin Klein Voile Party Dress

Calvin Klein Voile Party Dress

This dress is great for a summery occasion, and the scoop neckline will work well for your figure.

Maggy London Silk Chiffon Halter Dress

Maggy London Silk Chiffon Halter Dress

The halter neckline and the knee-length skirt are excellent for figure flattery.

Our $ Picks:

Lush Bubble Dress

Lush Bubble Dress

The bubble skirt may help you balance out your figure…plus we love the gorgeous Jade color.

Ella Dress

LinkElla Dress

Thanks to the cutout, this dress reveals ever-so-subtly. And the belted shape will help you naturally play up your curves.

Chinese gowns

Chinese influenced dresses articles

and information extracts about Chinese gowns



How to select the best Chinese style dress for you

For Chinese dresses and Asian gowns there are similar rules as for all women's apparel: Choose styles that underline your best qualities to show yourself in the best way. The stated-below tips can support you in dressing for your body shape and make any event as noteworthy as possible. If you have large breasts however, you'll want to avoid wearing shoulder pads because they can draw more attention to your top.

Chinese silk dress

1. Apple shape

Ladies with an apple-shaped figure should choose Asian fashion that emphasize other body parts than their midsection. A high waistline damps the problem of China gowns being too close around the waist and gives various design alternatives to find the right fit. Ladies with long legs have also the advantage of selecting shorter China silk dresses.

2. Petite

Women with small body shapes should look for short Oriental gowns in simple styling. Often ankle-length or full skirts are too large or too long for a small body shape. You can combine a Chinese dress with decent and elegant jewelry, so that the waistline and upper body will be highlighted and your face and hair will be dislayed in better way. Earrings additionally emphasize the face, neck, and upper body.

3. Slim figure

Slim-figured ladies have a lot of possibilities. They should remind always, that the longer and straighter the China dress is, the more slender they will look like. Slim and tall ladies can add some curves to their appearance with a bell-shaped Chinese silk dress and attract the viewers attention to the bust region. A further possibility for a woman trying to show more curves are belted China silk gowns that emphasizes the waistline.

4. Pear shape

Chinese fashion with an A-line or full skirt is a very good possibility for a pear-figured woman because it distracts attention from the hips. Furthermore, a fitted top can emphasize the upper body. In this case you can wear jewelry and pull your hair up in order to to point out the face and your upper parts. By using a small handbag or belt which flatters laxly around a woman's waist she always can minimize her hips.

5. Hourglass shape

Ladies with an hourglass body can choose always many different designs. With such a body shape you can select your dress or silk gown with short or long sleeves, also without sleeves, and you can wear any jacket or Chinese top, maybe together with a Chinese vest. You can display your figure by wearing nearly all designs of China gowns.

Chinese inspired dress online shopping

Even if you already know what dress you want to wear, you should still shop around just in case. Sexy Asian dresses combine the elaborate elegance of Chinese tradition with unique elements of style, like the high collar and the attractive slits, which set off the beauty of the female shape. Prices can be compared when making the final purchase. Because of their particular charm Chinese silk dresses are like a wonderful flower in the colorful fashion scene.

When you have choosen the appropriate sexy Asian gown style for your body shape, then you can begin with shopping. I suggest for doing so by use of an Internet shop. It's very comfortable by surfing through China fashion websites with various designer selections of China dresses, where you can compare all the possible colors, different sizes, designs, and prices, and where you additionally can find a large amount of shoes, also jewelry and accessories to perfect your own China dress and Chinese prom gown collection.

In general Asian dresses are made of different high quality fabrics, like brocade, satin, cotton, silk brocade and thai silk. You can purchase China gowns in the above mentioned Asian fashion online shops for kids as well as for boys, girls, children, men, young ladies, mature women and in plus sizes. You can get an Oriental dress for evening, party and cocktail events for both summer and winter. Various motives are used for Asian dresses, like dragon, phoenix, butterfly, plum blossom, cherry blossom, fish, flower, peony, chrysanthemum, peacock, longevity, bamboo, lotus und you can get them embroidered. On many online shops you can purchase Chinese gowns as well as cheap Chinese dresses for less than 100 $ or € on sale. Internet web stores often get inexpensive discount Chinese dresses under 100 $ or € and more cheap Chinese clothes.

Chinese silk dresses

The Chinese made use of silk for pretty much everything. From men’s ties to women’s blouses silk was the material of choice. Not everybody could afford silk clothing though. This was because cultivating silk was an extensive and expensive process due to which the cost of silk was high. Hence it was only the rich and elite nobility that could afford Chinese silk apparel whereas the poor would make use of hemp and ramie. As such silk became a status symbol in China. Silk was far more popular with the women than it was with the men although the use of silk was common amongst both the sexes. Women could be seen sporting the cheongsam which was a one piece body hugging suite. This traditional Chinese silk dress is very popular in current times and is available in a wide variety of designs using silk as the base material. The Qipao is a classic enclothe with brave quality demands in their producing, which will never be a dress for mass market only, but everytime for individual female customers. Initially this used to be a blouse like garment worn as an undergarment. With the passage of time it became a popular fashion trend. Today the silk Asian dress Qipao is worn as a regular top rather than an undergarment.

'porn-star dress'

Girl-next-door Jessica Simpson drops a blonde bombshell with her 'porn-star dress'

But we suspect even her most ardent followers won't be copying Jessica Simpson's porn star look.

Jessica Simpson or Jaymes? The singer arrived at a Lake Tahoe concert showcasing a curious choice of dress

Stepping out for a concert in Lake Tahoe, the 28-year-old seemed to have left her fashion sense in the Hollywood Hills.

Wearing a cleavage revealing coral-pink, leather-studded dress, it would be fair to say she made a definite sartorial faux pas.

To make matters worse, her toenails were painted in clashing silver.

And perhaps the singer realised her mistake once she was in public.

Down in the mouth: The usually sunny singer appeared forlorn as she walked with boyfriend Tony Romo

Usually sunny and smiling, she looked distinctly forlorn as she walked alongside boyfriend Tony Romo.

However, poor Jessica has been working hard recently and could be forgiven for her style error considering her packed schedule.

On June 26 she wrote in her blog: 'These past few days I've been in 4 states, on 8 flights, and in 4 time zones promoting my single "Come On Over", and I've had such a great time.'

Perhaps all the graft is taking its toll and affecting her judgement.

Do ya think I'm sexy? Jessica strikes a pose as she shows off her figure

Sister act: Jessica's little sister Ashlee, who is pregnant, attended with rocker beau Pete Wentz

Suriyawong’s Dress

Chotiros Suriyawong’s Dress Is Too Sexy for Thai Public

Thai Student Black Dress

Believe it or not, Wearing an Elizabeth Hurley-inspired dress can get you a community service! This is what happened to Chotiros Suriyawong,a small Thai actress when she appeared with very revealing dress at Subhanahongsa Awards. Some said she did a commando.Yes, we are talking about h

er appearing in a dress that makes you wonder if she got her underwear. We have to ask: what’s the big fuss about? After all, the right “dress to kill” can launch a career for any number of aspiring stars. The same happened to Elizabeth Hurley when she was still a struggling actress. A sexy safety pin black dress designed by Versace that she wore to a movie premiere back in 1994 managed to put her in the limelight and thus bring her up to a new level. For Chotiros it was a poor strategy, a step badly taken. The dress, and her apparent lack of undergarments, caused a public outcry, with the Thai press berating the 22-year-old for offending Thai culture with the barely-there outfit, and web chat boards discussing little else. Since the dress

made its debut at the awards ceremony on February 9, there have been tears, apologies and retribution in Thailand, which is increasingly seeking to balance its traditional Buddhist value

s with the country’s raunchier side, which attracts hundreds of thousands of tourists a year.

Her Bangkok-based

university on Thursday decided to take appropriate action against its rebellious student. “We gave her a warning and asked her to do 15 days of community service, reading books and recording it for blind people,” the Thai-language Daily News quoted the university’s deputy president, Parinya Thaewanarumittkul, as saying. Chotiros, is a 22-year-old liberal arts major at Thammasat University, one of the country’s most respected academic institutions, wore it at the Feb. 9 Golden Swan awards ceremony, Thailand’s equivalent of the Oscars. News also has it that Thailand’s biggest production company, Sahamongkol Film, said it would cut her small part in their upcoming movie “Beautiful Samurai”.“We are not a porn company, I don’t like the actress to show her body, it is not a good image,” Khao Sod newspaper reported Somsak Techaratanaprasert, the company’s president, as saying.
