So say bye for now to knitwear, wool and faux fur. While saying hello to cardigans, flowy skirts and fun colorful prints. Although the seasonal change insists that you make one too, buying a new spring wardrobe for both work and the weekend doesn’t have to come at a high cost. There are fantastic transitional spring styles that will take you from work to the weekend without breaking your bank account. Here’s how:

Blazers are in no matter the season, but it makes a great match for spring. It’s the perfect transitional piece from the weekly grind to the weekend flow. Belt it in the office for a polished look and lose the belt to wear it more comfortably over denim on the weekend.

Light colors like melon, white, yellow, pistachio, true red and so many more are complementary to the spring season. It’s a great way to brighten up your work day mood too and effortlessly vibe with your weekend plans. A look like this can also be transitioned in other ways. Try open toes creating a weekend look. Closed toe shoes like pumps and a waist belt can turn this outfit into a fashionable work look.

Sleeveless styles should not be only considered a “just for the weekend style”. Perfect way to dress it up for the day at the office is simple. Add a light cardigan to cover up your shoulders creating a transitional look from play to work and back to play again by removing the cardigan.

Floral print is always a great idea and even better, flowy fabric in the spring. During your free time you can mix up a flowy skirt with edgy sandals. For a day at work wear a button-down blouse with heels or pumps for a more appropriate business dress look.

 

It’s important to spend on clothing that satisfy many facets of your life. Always consider your lifestyle in and outside of the office to pick the perfect wardrobe for you. There are so many ways that you can maximize your wardrobe and buying clothing that you can wear from the office to the weekend is a great way to do that.

Fall Sweaters for the curvy girlCredit: Antthony Designs

Winter will soon make its emergence as fall exits center stage left. So you know what that means? We’ll be back dressing for the cold weather before we know it. Keeping up with fashion in the winter can be difficult for some, but it doesn’t have to be. It’s a great time to get creative with layering and can be made fun with these winter must-haves to shield the cold during this time of year.

Statement Coats are a must when you have no other choice than to cover up in the cold. To keep your personal style intact, it should be done with a coat that’s going to complement you and your look. There are so many statement coat styles that should make this very easy to do. Pair it with your favorite skinny jeans, trousers or a skirt and layer it with a sweater for an effortless winter chic look.

 

Sweaters are synonymous for winter because of the warmth it provides us. The perfect sweater to wear by itself or layered on top to shield you from the cold are high collar sweaters. You can wear it with skinny jeans on the outside or tuck it in. Also works great with a skirt and tights.

(Side note: if you want to wear that skirt jumper from the summer and fall, pair this high collar sweater underneath it to wear during the winter too.)

Booties are a style’s go to in the winter because they go with almost anything. The great thing is that there are different styles of booties so wearing the most appropriate for winter is not an issue. They are easy to layer in and style with most wardrobe pieces. No problems staying warm in them especially when they can be best coordinated tucked into skinny jeans, tights, but also over the shoe in boot cut jeans or trousers.

 

 

Fedoras are the perfect mate for accessorizing your winter look and keeping you warm. If you didn’t know, wearing a fedora can help you retain body heat which keeps your body from losing any during those cold days out on the town. Interesting, right?!? But save your straw fedoras for the spring and summer and add fedora fabric types to your wardrobe like wool, felt and cotton with your winter look.

Other great hat types to complete your winter style are beanies, berets, boaters and turbans.

Scarves are hands down the most common and easily styled accessory in the winter. Not many go without pairing one with their winter style. They are truly the most versatile piece of fabric because of the many ways you can wear them and keep warm at the same time. Wear them around your neck, over your shoulders or over your head, styling is endless when it comes to a scarf.

Were you inspired by this guide on winter must-haves to shield the cold? I hope you discovered new ways to style your looks this winter season. There are no limits to the ways you can complete your winter look with each of these wardrobe pieces.

August 14, 2018

Fall Sweaters for the curvy girlCredit: Lion Hunter

The end of summer is nearing and fall will soon take center stage. Whether you’re ready or not, the new season will require your closet to make a seasonal overhaul to include the best fall essentials. In other words, shopping for fall should be underway. And what better fall essential to add to your wardrobe than a collection of sweaters as the weather begins to switch from warm to cooler temps.

Looking for sweaters can be made easy when opting for those sweater styles that compliment you and offers comfortability all in one. There are now a plethora of sweater styles to choose from that cater to every shape and style. Making sweaters more universally appealing to all shapes and sizes.

On this post we’ll talk fall sweaters for your curves and the best fit that will offer a love match between your body shape, personality and style.

THE STYLES

Sweater Dress Styles for Curvy WomenCredit: Plus Look

The Sweater Dress
Sweater dresses are effortless, functional and easy to wear. Its versatility allows you to wear it many ways and at most, comfortably preferred. You can dress it up with or without leggings while pairing it with statement jewelry and knee-high boots. As a casual look you can dress it with or without jeans, a cute hat, tennis shoes or edgy boots. To play up those curves add a belt to flatter your figure.

The Twist Front Knit Sweater
The twist front knit sweater is the perfect statement sweater. Adding a little something more, it draws the attention to the waistline giving you an hourglass silhouette. No need to wear a necklace as the twist knot accessorizes the sweater all on its own. Wear it with your favorite high-waist pants or skirt for a chic finish. It’s the perfect sweater that will take you from sun up to sun down.

The Tiered Ruffled Sleeve Sweater
The tiered sleeve trend won’t be ending anytime soon so why not take the trend into fall with a sweater look. A tiered ruffled sleeve sweater makes it easy to play dress up with its voluminous elegance detailed on the arms. It helps draw the attention away from those flawed areas and right to your arms. And if you’re not a fan of your arms, it’s the perfect camouflage.

The Cold Shoulder Sweater
Love that the cold shoulder trend not only exists in the warmer temp seasons, but the cold seasons too. It’s the perfect transition from summer to fall. The cold shoulder is a blend of comfortable yet sexy vibes. If you love your shoulders, than you’ll love the way they’d look in the cold shoulder sweater. Focus on the sweater texture, print and color so that it caters to your personal style. It can also double as a night out top or as a casual top.

THE FIT

Necklines
Choose a neckline that will best fit your body shape. Wearing a V or deep V neckline with a large chest is idea for a well-balanced look. For a small chest preferably, a crew or scoop neckline to accentuate your bust to appear larger. The idea is for your size to look more proportionate in appearance. With turtleneck sweaters you must choose wisely and be fashionably careful to not wear a form fitted one if your chest is large or loose if you have a small chest. You don’t want to appear larger or smaller than you really are.

Solid Colors v. Patterns
Selecting solid colors over patterns will less likely add pounds to your look. Be careful to not choose large patterns that over emphasize your figure. Smaller patterns are a more flattering to your figure and size. Solid colors provide a more slimming look. Wear colors that best complement your skin tone.

Beauty Grooming

July 10, 2018

Being well groomed benefits you personally and professionally. Your exterior is a reflection of how much you value and care for yourself. How you present yourself influences the opportunities and the people you attract. And it’s a great indication of how well you manage life around you. There are certain beauty grooming areas that are vital to your appearance that doesn’t require any pressure, but a little extra attention to the untended. Managing your appearance will help boost your confidence and esteem.

Let’s state the obvious factors of our appearance, which are most times neglected beauty grooming enhancers. They are the first that people notice and what you will receive the most up front compliments on. “Your nails are pretty”, “you have beautiful skin”, “love how your hair looks”, “you smell amazing”, are just some of what people acknowledge about an upkept appearance. People are quick to admire the way a person looks, smells and feels (and will remember you for it too).

Nails
(Say yes to nail hygiene with healthier looking hands and feet)

Let’s start with how important it is to practice good nail hygiene. It’s said that you can tell a lot about a man through his shoes. I’d like to believe that you can tell a lot about a woman through her nails. Ladies, how you keep them groomed is important. Keeping them regularly trimmed, shaped, cuticles cut, clean, moisturized and polished is a for sure way to having healthier looking nails. For my non-color polish wearers, a protective layer of clear polish will keep your nails strengthened. All around proper nail care is the way to go.

Hair
(Keep your tresses styled and maintained)

Your hair makes or breaks your entire look. Nothing compares to the way your outfit looks when your hair is done. Even your confidence level sky rockets because when you look good, you feel even better. As your hair complements your features, it enhances your beauty (choose the styles that best fits the shape and color of your face). That’s why it’s important to always keep your hair styled and maintained.

A bad hair day negatively impacts your day and outfit, increasing self-doubt. According to a study, people with a good hair style feel more capable at performing tasks as opposed to those having a bad hair day.

Rule of thumb for taking care of your tresses:

What you put on your hair can and will affect it. Think of your hair like your skin. Choose the best products and hair routines that will help you maintain healthier looking hair.

Fragrance
(Smell attractive and boost your mood)

Smelling good is always a good idea. It’s a mood booster because the smell of perfume can be therapeutic, and it gives a great scent of your personality. Wearing fragrances that gel well with your body chemistry is key. Think of it as just another accessory that enhances your outfit and personality. The best spots to apply a scent are the places your heart rate can be felt. These are the pulse points on your body. Fragrance is something that we all can enjoy. But remember, less is more (so go easy on the amount of perfume you apply). You don’t want your scent to be overwhelmingly noticeable.

Makeup
(Enhancing your natural beauty)

Your face projects the very essence of you, your feelings and expressions through your eyes and lips. Remembering that your face is where people look when they want to get to know you is reason enough you’d want to apply makeup. It’s not to take away from your natural beauty but enhance and radiate your facial features. If you prefer a low maintenance makeup application, adding some concealer, shaping your eye brows, lipstick and mascara will do the trick. To draw attention to one of the most visible places of all besides your eyes, are your lips. Throw a complementary lip color (preference of lipstick, lip stain or lip gloss) on your pout. If you love a full face of makeup, include some foundation (or contouring) and noticeable eyeshadow to give your face and eyes the pop it needs.

Manage Your Attire
(Style yourself confident)

The goal is to look like you have your life together. Never let your wardrobe suffer. Your self-esteem depends on you to look your best. Wearing styles that complement your personality and body type will give you just the confidence you need.

Each component of your look should match well with the other. Look for styles that make you feel comfortable and effortless. These wardrobe styles you choose should show off your best assets while downplaying your flaws. Do this and your look will meet the eye. Including yours in the mirror.

Remember that confidence comes from within and beauty grooming brings life
to it.

A Curvy Woman’s Guide To Dressing

June 10, 2018

 

Fashion is more than just throwing items of clothing together. It means the ability to be versatile and self-expressive. The experience you get from fashion is one of the most self-empowering feelings ever. The feeling of you being able to pour your feelings from the inside out in your style choices. Most recent in fashion trends, clothing brands and designers are designing outfits that complement and cater to the personal style of curvy women. The clothing made in the past did not embrace every woman in that way. And now there is a design for every woman no matter her body shape.

Fortunately, more fashion designers have adapted to the idea that even a curvy woman can take the fashion world by storm. Fashion designers like Antthony Designs, and other brands like Christian Siriano, now cater to the fashion desires of curvy women. From crop tops, gowns, miniskirts, and fitted jeans, curvy women can look effortlessly fashionable and chic without trying. With the presence of beautiful curvy women like Ashley Graham on today’s fashion runways, more curvy women all over the world recognize that they too fit into the new ideas of what is beautiful in fashion.

If you’re a curvy woman and would like to try out new styles, here are a few tips that could help you dress effortlessly for the beauty in you.

Pick Out the Right Fit That Complements Your Shape

One thing to keep in mind when dressing is that it’s important to dress your size. Sure, crop tops and high waisted pants look good, but you need to find the right fit that works best for you. It is also advisable to purchase good shapewear and bras. This will not only make the fit of the clothing beautiful but will also ensure your comfortability.

Don’t Be Afraid To Show Some Skin

You should be unafraid to show off your best assets. After all, that’s what is unique about you. If you have killer legs, then wear a short skirt or gown to show it off. You have shoulders that are to die for, then show them off by adorning yourself with an off the shoulder or one shoulder dress.

Rock Out Your Look in Prints and Patterns

From stripes, animal prints, polka dots, florals and more, you have the chance to show the world the fun side of you. You could wear pattern and print pieces in areas you want to accentuate. A plain colored blouse with a pattern/print skirt or pants if you have nice hips and backside. Another fun way to style in patterns is by wearing them together for a fun mix of coordinating and making a look your own.

Dress Appropriately for The Right Occasion

The way we dress is important to our everyday lives. It determines how people perceive us which is why we need to choose styles that best suit who we are. Wearing the right outfit at the right time is equally important and shouldn’t be ignored. Just as you would opt for a formal gown or ensemble for a wedding or special ceremony, be sure that your day wear is just as appropriate for office or a night on the town. What’s great is that both scenarios can be pulled off with colorful outfits and great style. Be sure to incorporate the right accessories like jewelry, shoes, and a purse where needed, to polish and finish off your look.
Hint: Less is more so don’t overdo it but do what fits you.

Try Out Different Styles

A great way to get your best style is by exploring different types of styles. Of course, you do not need to buy a whole wardrobe of several different style outfits.

However, trying different styles of clothing beforehand will help you decide which styles you’re more comfortable in. You could try elegant and flawless, bold and daring or edgy chic. Style inspo from your favorite style icon(s) can also help you create the look that best complements you.

With these tips, be rest assured that you will turn heads all year long while looking fashionably you.

Blouses that look fabulous with a pair of basic black pants!

December 21, 2016

fabulous-blouses

When it comes to office style, a pair of black trousers will always be a wardrobe staple. They are classic and simple and look fabulous when worn with a great pair shoes, a great bag, a watch, or the right jewelry. Black is one of the easiest colors to match. No matter how many times you’ve worn them, you can instantly change up the look by putting on a new top.

HERE ARE SOME GREAT TOPS TO MIX AND MATCH
WITH BLACK BOTTOMS!

Bright jeweled tone blouses look best. Colors such as ruby red, sapphire blue and emerald green really stand out and look super sophisticated. Stay away from wearing a pastel shirt with a pair of black pants. Pastels are subdued and black pants tend to wash out the color.

Patterned tops create instant visual interest, making them an easy way to add drama to an outfit. They add punch to a look when a solid feels blah. Bold patterned shirts really pop if your pants are basic and in need of some fashion umph.

Have you taken a shine to metallic for the holiday season? Same here. Don’t be afraid to go casual with metallic tops. They can elevate a weekend look without making you look like you tried too hard. And don’t limit yourself to gold and silver. Primary colors come in metallic sheens too, plus there is always copper and bronze! Get merry and bright in these glitzy looks.

Finding the perfect pair of black pants can be as difficult as shopping for a good pair of jeans. There are so many brands and silhouettes to choose from and you need to find the right fit for your frame. Don’t be afraid to try on multiple styles until you find the one that is right for you. Then, when you do, drop some extra cash. These are wardrobe power players that can be re-worn and restyled time and time again.

HERE ARE SOME TROUSERS SHAPES FOR EVERY SIZE WOMAN!

skinny-jeans

 

Skinny Jeans – A skinny leg trouser is ultra flattering, not matter your size. It masks any unwanted weight by pulling everything in, but make sure they aren’t too tight, both for comfort and because you don’t want to create unwanted muffin tops!

high-waisted-pant

 

High Waist – These trousers accentuate your waist and shows off your backside. Try them on to make sure there is a little room. The eye should flow from the waist to the hem. These are great for a button-front blouse to wear to the office.

straight-leg-pant

 

Straight Leg – This is an everyday pant that is ideal for work or the weekends. The tapered leg pairs equally well with pumps, sandals, sneakers and flats. Choose a pair with a close fit, but again, no too tight. The hem should hit just above or below the ankle.

wide-leg-pant

 

Wide Leg – This cut shows off your shape by elongating your legs and accentuating your waist. Find a pair that just grazes the ground when you are wearing heels. You may need to have these pants tailored to ensure a custom fit.

You work hard, so every now and then give yourself a reward to help you feel rejuvenated and look as good on the outside as you feel inside. Treat yourself to a new blouse or pair of timeless trousers that flatters your figure and enjoy the compliments that follow.

If you haven’t already finished your holiday shopping, go online to HSN.com or www.AntthonyOriginals.com to find my Anthony designs online anytime 24/7. Each of them come in petite, missy and plus sizes, so there is something for every woman.

Glam up your look this holiday!

December 7, 2016

holiday-glam

The holiday season is underway and many women have already put up their decorations and started gift shopping. Remember amid the traditional celebration preparation to take some time out for you. Tis the season for gorgeous fashions, hair, makeup and nail art, and holiday parties are the perfect time to be a little extra festive — especially when it comes to your style. Whether you’re headed to an office get-together or a black-tie ball, it’s time to dust off your sparkly dress and glam up your beauty routine!

Here’s to 22 more years being part of your lives and wardrobes!

HERE ARE SOME HOLIDAY INSPIRATIONS TO HELP YOU
SHINE THIS SEASON!

 

 

There’s a reason we love tinsel on Christmas trees and strings of lights around our homes: They make everything glow. The same is true for highlighting makeup. Sweep a glittering powder over your cheekbones, below your brow bone and on the inner corner of your eyes for a little shimmer this season.

highlights
chocolate-lips

 

 

Chocolate not only is the yummiest treat of the season but also a sweet alternative to red lipstick. Try some matte browns for a more sophisticated look or reach for lipstick with mauve or reddish undertones. It will take your holiday glam up a notch!

 

You can do red and green eye shadow and not be mistaken for one of Santa’s elves. Add in a bit of metallic pencil for a more dramatic holiday look. When it comes to shimmer, just be careful not to overdo it. A little shine is more than welcome, but there is a fine line between bold and vulgar.

red-and-green-eyes
glitter-nails

 

 

Are you looking for something simple to do to get you in the Christmas spirit? Try this fancy holiday manicure idea to dress up your nails. Not only is it festive and glittery, but it will match a variety of outfits for full season wear. Every time you use your hands you’ll be reminded of the season.

 

 

Maybe you want some nail art that will last into winter. An enhanced French manicure with glitter tips and snowflake designs is perfect. This is a subtle look that hints to the season in a sophisticated way!

winter-nails
ribbon

 

 

 

Holiday hair doesn’t have to involve sparkly pins and headbands, but that can be half the fun. For a quick shopping trip or ugly sweater cocktail hour, try a simple ribbon to hint to the holidays.

 

 

 

For a more formal affair, try adding some bling to really get into the spirit of the party. From braids to curls to pretty twists, have fun and try a different hairstyle for each of the holiday parties you attend this year!

It’s time to deck your halls, in style!

Whether you live in a small space or a large home, go big with the seasonal cheer this year. Festive decorations get everyone into the holiday spirit and you’ll find yourself feeling a little extra comfort and joy when you are surrounded with style. Whether you are a traditionalist, a minimalist, or an over-the-top mismatched decorator, you can capture the magic of the holiday with rich colors, glittering lights, and simple statement pieces that perfectly reflect you.

HERE ARE SOME IDEAS TO BRING CHEER TO YOUR HOME THIS HOLIDAY!

ornaments

 

Ornaments
Add some color to your tabletop by displaying your prettiest ornaments where people can see them. Putting small bulbs in a glass vase looks festive and fun, and you can start a new tradition where guests add an ornament or two to your tree before they leave.

pillow

 

Pillows
An easy decor upgrade is to swap out your normal throw pillows for holiday-themed ones. Or use your special DIY skills to wrap them in a beautiful ribbon to add a festive flair. Your room will feel fresh and you’ll be ready to celebrate in style.

bookcase

 

Bookcase
It may be easy to overlook bookcases, but with a roll or two of wrapping paper, your room can get a graphic jolt. Cover your hardbacks with affordable gift-wrap to match your holiday decorations. It’s a small project that will bring the holiday to all corners of the room.

wreath

 

Wreath
Get cheery with your entryway and be welcomed by holiday charm every time you come home. A wreath and ribbon has just enough foliage to transform your room and usher in the season. This is especially great for the minimalist decorator.

gifts

 

Gifts
Make your wrapping paper the decor. You took the time to make a lovely package for the special person in your life, so why not use that beauty in your home until it is time to give them away? Place them under the tree or in a wicker basket and your space will get an instant holiday vibe.

paper-trees

 

Paper Trees
We all have pretty scraps of paper laying around that we keep for special projects. Turn those bits of paper into dainty, paper trees. Let your crafty side free and decorate hallways, doorknobs or windows with these fun, holiday origami creations.

aroma

 

Aroma
Last but not least, be sure to fill your home with holiday aromas for a winter wonderland for your nose. Oranges and cranberries simmering on the stove is great, or you can buy cinnamon scented pine cones to place near the fireplace. Let the smells of the season fill your home this year.
