The Most Flattering Styles of Eyewear for Older Woman

12 Aug , 2014  

It does not matter what age you are; there is a always fresh new style for that retains the ability to make anyone both look and feel good. This is especially true in the fashion world when it comes to eyewear. Though finding the right pair of glasses may be challenging, once you land upon your treasured look you will be pleased you made the effort.


For all the older women out there who are currently wearing glasses, I am here to tell you that you are not resigned to wearing bifocal glasses that hang from chains wrapped loosely around your neck; and you most certainly do not have to wear the same pair of retro eyeglasses you purchased a few decades ago. I encourage you to do quite the opposite and instead, take the time to find a fashionable new frame that fits you the best. After all, eyewear is one of the greatest ways to knock a few years off your age, so why not start shopping for a chic new frame today? You can even shop from the comforts of your home today by browsing various eyewear retailer websites online. One of greatest aspects about our world today is that we now have the ability to not only purchase eyeglasses online from shops like, but to also try on as many styles as we desire with virtual-try-on software. In addition, a lot of online eyewear stores offer each consumer an opportunity to test out their favorite frames with home-try-on services.

The key is to find a pair that makes you look and feel younger and more vibrant. This article is dedicated to all the beautiful older women out there who are desperately eager to trade in their old eyeglasses for a newer and fresher look. First of all, I will begin by stating that black eyeglass frames look good on everyone. In fact, they are often called the little black dress in the world of designer eyewear. In other words, selecting a solid black frame that fits the shape of your face will look good on you no matter what. This style can make you look classy, sophisticated, and fashionable. Even if you do not consider yourself to be an ultra fashionista, your black frames will state otherwise. Just make sure to select a pair that is complementary to your personal style and the shape of your face, and to wear a minimal amount of accessory so you don’t look overdone.

Remember ladies, if eyewear is a part of your everyday wardrobe, then it’s safe to consider it your greatest fashion accessory. After all, would you wear the same pair of earrings every day? No way! So do yourself a favor and invest a few pairs of frames that complement your personal style. One author wrote a book about eyewear, and how it can be used to shave a few years off your age. In it she recommends the following three tips: purchase a pair for your workday, another for your evening outings, and another for weekend rendezvous. Investing in multiple pairs of frames is a great way to transform your look throughout the week, or in any given moment, which is perfect for us ladies who love to mix it up. Another key piece of advice when selecting eyeglasses is to take the following three things into consideration: the shape of your face, the color of your hair, and your personality. Eyewear, as mentioned earlier, is considered to be one of the most fashionable accessories, and that is why it is important to search for styles that complement your appearance and your personality.


PVC Fashion

11 Aug , 2014  

It is coming, and there is not stopping it.

Already our most loved fashion franchises are slowly introducing these gelatinous vinyl fashion items…

I’m talking plastic, jelly, vinyl, latex, rubber, PVC…Fab or drab? – That’s debatable.

We have seen the re-introduction of jelly sandals -the ones we loved so much as a child because they looked like jelly beans on our feet…We have seen the plastic twin of our commonly worn ballet flats…We have seen thongs no longer in matte rubber but a glossy, firm, glazed plastic…

What’s next? You ask…

Either way, whether you’re a lover or a hater, prepare yourselves; because PVC will take over the fashion world this summer like never before -according to vogue and recent trends. Bright, bold, glossy, futuristic, sometimes transparent. This sensation is loved by some, hated by others. It looks like candy, defends against the rain, and makes you feel as if you are stuck in a giant cup of wobbly jelly. It can be fun and high fashion or shamefully tacky, depending on how you wear it…So how do you wear it?  -How on earth can a fully grown woman pull off a look reminiscent to the plastic ghosts of her childhood jelly bean sandals?

This article brings you the ‘What’s Hot’and ‘What’s Not’of the controversial PVC fashion era.

What’s Hot and What’s Not

Before you even attempt squeezing into some skin-tight latex leggings, know that it will be difficult to get on and even harder to take off…Especially after all that sweat has accumulated in there and starts acting like a suction…To avoid this, try using some talcum or baby powder to mattify your skin. Plastic does not let your skin breathe so know that wearing jelly sandals ain’t so hot if your feet start sweating and the clear plastic lining starts fogging up…Powder is your friend girl, as are socks/stockings. -But whatever you do, do not try wearing socks with your glossy plastic thongs…lest you want to end up looking like an outdated-fashion confused grandma…

Latex Leggings

PVC pencil skirts are all the rage in hollywood with Rita Ora and Kim Kardashian as two examples of fashion icons rocking the look. Both girls paired their slick skirts with a simple loose fitting top, strappy heels and minimal jewellery. Summer is also the perfect time to show off the shape of your booty and legs that you’ve been working all season long toward. Latex leggings are, as quoted by some, “a corset for your legs,”so even if you haven’t been working out, fear not, latex gets the job done.

PVC Pencil Skirt

For a daring, wet, slick look resembling mermaid meets high fashion model, work bright block-coloured under-garments  beneath glossy clear plastics paired with a perfectly pulled-back high pony tail, glossy lips,  dewy foundation and shimmery eyes. Lengthen your legs with shiny pumps and keep the jewellery minimal to really let your clothes talk. Candy-like nails won’t go amiss either.

If you aren’t quite so daring and still don’t know whether you even like PVC in the slightest, ease into it by experimenting with a single piece of plastic goodness, be it latex leggings, jelly shoes or a PVC skirt paired with a loose-fitting white top, chunky shoes or sleek pumps. Start yourself off with the more opaque colours, neutral tones, or simply black, as they are more subtle and not so in-your-face bold. With this look your hair can be kept messy-chic and your makeup natural with maybe a bold lip colour.

Denim and PVC or knitwear and PVC can end in either beauty or disaster. Remember that the plastic is the centre of attention and where all the colour attention is; your other items are mere complements  -think neutral, white or black. You definitely do not want a clash of colours and textures! Don’t forget that PVC can stand alone without jewellery, so be careful not to overdo things. Plastic can also look cheap, therefore all other elements must be made to look ‘expensive,’and as mentioned multiple times earlier, you can achieve this by keeping it clean and simple.

Good luck and be bold. Summer is coming.
