    Bright Shorts


    Shorts are the definitely the perfect piece of clothing to turn up the color volume: even neon and ultra-bright hues look right because shorts are a smaller piece of clothing and won't visually overwhelm your look.

    Here, Heather McDonald opts for mixing her bright yellow shorts with a print top. Brights work with prints, or you can mix them with other brights for a colorblock effect.

    Empire Waist Dress

    Perfect for skinny minnies and voluptuous girls alike, the empire waist dress is universally flattering. It adds curves to the right places, while disguising the wrong.

    The feminine prom dress features a waistline that hits between the upper-waist to just below the bust, creating a long, lean figure.

    Glamazons can emphasize the sleek shape and plunging neckline with a sleek color and tip-toe heels, while girlie girls can play up the flowy prom dress with ruffles and bows.

    A Contemporary Option



    It stands to reason that the "Interview Advice" dress from vintage-inspired contemporary brand, Mod Cloth, has a shorter hemline than any of the other dresses on the list. (Note that belts make hemlines easily adjustable!) What constitutes "office-wear" has changed so much over the years. Some things have remained the same, however. Namely, the office appeal of a simple shirt dress!

    Dress of the Sunset


    Rusty Zipper

    This 70's psychedelic print dress from Rusty Zipper is, in a word, perfect. The slight princess cut and slanted pockets make for an almost girly silhouette. The colors are rich and divine. It'll draw double takes for sure, but it's neat and sophisticated enough for work. The only way this dress could be more perfect is if it actually came with a complementary platform shoe!

    Add Printed Scarf.


    Add Printed Scarf.

    Experiment with the bright color or mixed print trend here. This works best with a dress that has a sleeve. The key to mixing prints is to find prints that match each other in scale, and have complementary coloring. If you want to mix floral prints, make sure they've got at least 2 colors in common, and that the florals are similar in size. Otherwise, drape a bright colored scarf over a print dress, or a print scarf over a bright colored dress.

    Hawaiian Pin Up

    Most of us want to try a pin up look, but are too intimated by the legacy of it all. Marilyn Monroe. Dita Von Teese. Betty Boop. The pin up is probably the style most fantasized about by both men and women, but women don't find that the look *fits* them.

    Either way, vintage is your chance to finally try it out for yourself! In browsing through the web's best shops, I'm seeing a new trend in pin up dresses--the Hawaiian print "wiggle" dress. On this one, the florals are bold but playful, taking the hard edge off the va va voomand camouflaging any less than perfect areas.

    80's [Almost] Excess

    Persephone Vintage-Etsy

    If brocade is the material of the Gods, then this one shouldered 80's dress is fit for a goddess! Proving that brocade doesn't have to be hot and heavy (and not in a good way), but can be light and whimsical, the flourish at the shoulder and the print at the bust don't overwhelm the dress, or the wearer! Sweep that hair up, and indulge in some fancy 80's excess for summer nights out! But remember, keep everything else simple.

    Tall Women's Sexy Dresses: Pear-Shaped

    Tyra Banks knows how to dress her pear-shaped figure by highlighting her slim waist with a belt, drawing the eye upward to a light-colored and interesting neckline and covering her bottom half with a darker, solid-color skirt.

    Tall women with a pear-shaped body need to balance out their lower-half by drawing the eye upward toward their slim arms and shoulders. Choose sexy dresses with an A-line skirt or with a dark-colored skirt balanced with a light-colored top. Finish off your outfit by highlighting your lean waist with a sash or belt

    Look for Long-Torso Tankinis


    Some stores offer swimsuits and tankinis designed for tall women. While personally I'd still avoid purchasing a one-piece from these stores, their tankinis offer more fabric through the torso, giving you more control of how much tummy to cover.

    Avoid Strapless Suits. 

    Tall women have a lot of body to show off while wearing a swimsuit, and strapless suits, particularly the bandeau tops, don't do anything to flatter the tall frame. The stretch of cloth around the chest ends up looking like a slash-mark that almost appears to cut off your head and shoulders from your torso. Triangle tops, halter straps or vertical straps draw the eye north toward your face, giving you a more flattering look.

    Swimsuit for The Perfect Body

    If you've got it go for it! Let's face it; you work hard to keep your body in perfect shape.

    A tiny, designer bikini looks good on so few people, you should consider it your solemn duty to beautify the beach and make a few heads turn. Spend the extra money on a hip, new, creation and look like a million dollars.

    Find it BEFORE you go

    Find your suit BEFORE you go on vacation. Prices at resorts can be astronomical and you don't want to spend all of your time looking for a suit that fits, especially in a foreign country that considers a size 3 "average."

    Make sure you take your measurements before you start shopping and use those, not size numbers to find your best fit. Choose your tops and bottoms separately so that you can create a custom tailored suit. What ever you do, don't just sit there on the deck or sand. Get out there and enjoy your tropical adventure!

    Swimsuit choose: Too Much Tummy


    If you are self conscious about your tummy try one of those fabulous, tummy, control panel, swimsuits: they really work wonders.

    If you're going for a two-piece swimsuit, then checkout the, "meet-and-greet," tankinis that are on the fashion scene today. They cover just enough, but you still have the freedom and hip factor of a bikini.

    A one-piece with some draping around the waist or hips can also help to conceal.

    Avoid itsy bitsy bikinis and blah, solid colored, one-pieces.

    Long Body Shape


    Clothes drape beautifully on you and your legs go on and on. But, you do need to make sure that you do not look like a bean pole at the beach in your swimsuit.

    You can go wild with the embellishments at the hips and bust line. Rings, jewels, ties and bows are all good things for you.

    Try horizontal stripes and nappy fabrics, such as stretch terry and velvet.

    You’ll look smashing in those super bright colors that are so, “in,” right now.

    If you want a one-piece swimsuit, try one of the latest, cut-out suits. It will break up your long torso, just like a bikini does.

    Boy shorts are just the thing for your slim hips. Oh, and those cute, ruffled skirts and cover-ups? They’re made just for you!

    Avoid up and down stripes, high necklines and dark, solid colors.

    Swimsuit for Swimming


    If you're into swimming, definitely get a one-piece. Find one that doesn't cut into the shoulders, has comfortable, stretchy fabric and doesn't creep up the backside. Forget bikini strings. You just don't want anything to come undone while you're doing laps or snorkeling off a crowded beach.

    Jane Fonda is 75. 75, people! Look at that face: she looks better than a 50-year-old. Get it, Jane.

    Best Over 40: Sandra Bullock


    Sandra Bullock wore a stunning gray Elie Saab dress. The lace dress featured heavy beading which was right on trend on the red carpet for the night.

    Two small gripes: the hair barrette was too young for her and I'm not a fan of cap sleeves (they end at the widest part of the arm and make anyone's arms -- even Sandra Bullock's -- look larger than they really are.

    Jennifer Lawrence had a huge fashion moment in her white strapless Dior Haute Couture gown. My favorite thing about the full-skirted creation was that it definitely had a sweet princess feel to it.

    The most interesting part of her look was the fact that she wore a long strand of diamonds backwards: a fabulous, trend-setting look.

    fashion harkened back to blatant cover-up
    As autumn approached, journalist Olivia Baker coined the ‘‘Britney
    effect,’’ alleging that trendsetting starlets like Ms. Spears, Mariah
    Carey, and Jennifer Lopez were creating mother – daughter ‘‘back-toschool
    battles.’’ Baker poses provocative mock questions: ‘‘Does
    Britney’s racy style have a bad influence on young girls?’’; ‘‘Would
    you let your daughter dress like Britney?’’ (1).

    In effect, such media spin served as a commercial ensuring that for
    another season or two the style would remain mainstream attire. It only
    began to wane in the summer of 2003, after the US invasion and occupation
    of Iraq. Following the November 2, 2004, presidential election,
    it became passe´. Hollywood’s Academy Awards show on February 28,
    2005 dramatically exhibited the fade-out. Ella Taylor mocked Oscar
    award winner Hilary Swank’s gown—a backless, ruched, high-necked
    and long-sleeved Guy Laroche design—as ‘‘a pneumatically enhanced
    Speedo with a fish tail and a get-thee-to-a-nunnery front’’ (10). The
    apparel at ‘‘Oscar at 77’’ definitely eschewed any raunchy exposure of

    The spring 2005 fashions also spurned outrageously porous designs,
    shocking shades, and bold patterns. The new arrivals featured subtle
    sophistication in the form of classically tailored jackets, romantically
    pretty dresses, neat black pencil skirts, and pastel-shaded skirts finished
    with a gentle sheen and embellished with delicate metallic embroidery.
    Mirroring the ultraconservative choice made by fifty-nine million US
    voters, fashion harkened back to blatant cover-up.
    These conservative styles parade as major values: secrecy, security,
    and the right-winged Christian dread of raw flesh and condemnation of
    unbridled sensuality. Long gypsy skirts, worn with a belt as an accessory,
    drape the truth of the flesh. So do pleated skirts, accompanied
    by a cardigan sweater. The tastefully chic short skirts are demure, not
    racy. Pretty tunic tops hide the torso from neck to below the midriff.
    Cropped slacks and trousers expose just the woman’s ankle—minimally
    seductive no matter how nicely turned. With the return of the Empire
    style in the summer 2005, the waist of dresses migrates from just above
    980 Richard J.Alapack
    the hips to just below the solar plexus. Ads crow that their conservative
    designs ‘‘flatters your curves and creates a shapely silhouette while simultaneously
    draping the navel. Empire waists haven’t been this popular since
    Napoleon set up housekeeping on Elba’’ (MSN Shopping, 3). Within a
    six-year span, styles had flip-flopped 180 degrees. By the time Hurricane
    Katrina hit, the radical shift to reactionary clothing was complete.
    Such unblushing epiphany followed by severe veiling requires interpretive
    probing to uncover psychosocial – political significance. ‘‘Are
    these clothes flattering, or beautiful?’’ ‘‘Is the ‘butt-crack chic’ appealing?’’
    If so, what is the logic of the lure? Roland Barthes describes the
    erotic triggers: ‘‘Is not the most erotic portion of the body where the
    garment gapes? The intermittence is erotic . . . skin flashing between two
    articles of clothing . . . this flash is erotic, the staging of appearanceas-
    disappearance and disappearance—soon-to-reappear’’ (9 – 10). Spring
    Snow exemplifies the basic structure of such lure. The young protagonist,
    Kiyoaki, ‘‘reels’’ in the face of Princess Kasuga’s ‘‘dazzling burst
    of elegance . . . a great fan of white fur a-glow fading to the sound of
    music, like a snow-covered peak first hidden then exposed by the fluid pattern
    of clouds’’ (Mishima 7).
