Does Your Personality Match Your Sunglasses?

Sunglasses

The clothes we wear, how we style our hair, even the cars we drive all give an inkling of our personalities, and the sunglasses we choose is no exception. Some decide on that special pair based on functionally others on style, either way it’s a glimpse into who we are or want to be. Picking the perfect shades is not as easy as it seems, sunglasses do more than block the sun, they’re much like a calling card. To get the look just right face structure, size of the frame and tint all have to be taken into consideration. But some ladies just gravitate to certain frames naturally like a feline to catnip.

Diversity Training At Its Best | Christian Siriano Fashion Week

Christian Siriano Fashion Week Runway

 

So by now you’ve heard and hopefully seen the Christian Siriano runway show during New York Fashion Week. I could talk about the beautiful dresses, I could even talk about how he stole the show and how awe-struck I was at the diversity. All of that you’ve heard and read days ago. I here for one reason and one reason only, to express my appreciation.

Let’s be frank. No more than two dark faces and one curvy body is allowed on ALL the runways of the ENTIRE fashion week. I won’t say high fashion runways ain’t for every body, but I will say they ain’t letting every body in hint, hint.

I was trolling instagram after a busy day and caught some video on June Ambrose’s feed. I immediately put the bat call out to my fashion friends to see if anyone had the full video and my fly, fashionable, and fearless friend Lisa came through. It left me speechless.

I am here to express my appreciation for the stacked hips and thick lips, the melanin popping and the bra cups with multiple alphabets. I here to show my appreciation for the faded haircuts and 4c textured hair. I here to show my appreciation for the unapologetic use of extra fabric to cover the thicker bones and fearless faces that wore it. I appreciate the recognition that the darker the berry the sweeter the juice and the shout out to the big girls. I appreciate Christian being a risk taker and a rule breaker. It’s over due.

Christian Siriano showed the Fashion world that nobody can do it better. He showed that thousand dollar beads, straight lines, great craftsmanship and bold colors and details look PHENOMENAL on all body types and skin tones.

You go boy! Not only did you rule the runway you turned a chapter in Fashion History.

I love crop tops, but the length of time that you can show off those abs in a belly top is just to short. With all the hard work we invest in searching far and wide for the perfect crop top and high-waisted shorts we ought to be able to get a few more months of wear out of them beyond just summer. How ever you love to wear your short shirts, we are going to show you how to wear them a little bit longer.

1. Choose crop tops in Fall hues.

2. Pair your tops with high-waisted anything to eliminate the gap and to keep your midsection warm.

3. Wear your crop top as a vest. Layer your favorite short shirt over a basic long sleeve Oxford shirt to add dimension.

4. Do denim, tie it at the waist or wear your denim shirt as a light jacket.
Do you wear your crop tops through the fall or do you tuck them away at the first sign of chilly weather? Tag us in your crop top outfit looks on Instagram and give us a follow @ShopUnitedFront

Make A Big Statement with Minimalistic Layering Necklaces

Jewelry can make or break a look. Too much can seem over done, not enough can leave a look wanting. Either way, much like make-up less is more with very few exceptions. Specifically, the necklace has been getting attention on the fashion scene. Layering necklaces have emerged as the new “thing”. Although this trend may seem new, dainty necklaces have always been on trend. Many times hidden under blouses, they hold sentimental value for lots and are eye catching when they see the light of day. Personally, I believe layering necklaces make great gifts and look awesome on solid backgrounds or color blocking where they won’t be lost.
