What To Wear: Floral Edition

If there is one thing that makes 2013 more fun it’s because of the undying affair with floral prints (other than B&W of course) that bloomed in full swing this year. In dresses, skirts, bags, rompers and imagine pant suits? They’re just everywhere! We’ll we’re not here to complain, we have our fair share of this garden party too. I for one, wore and own lots of these that sometimes my hubby would think he’s with a walking flower vase. Oh isn’t it the most charming thing?! 🙂

So here at Pinay Curvies we’ve rounded up four looks, to give you ideas on how to corporate the floral trend.

The Dark Blazer: What I love with floral blazer is that you don’t basically need to accessorize more in the neck area because of the boldness of the print. Also the fact that it is easy to slip from a very hip corporate attire (pair it with sleek black pants and pumps) to a more relaxed chic (pair it with denim shorts and a tee). Those are easy two looks in one piece.

The Vintage Shorts: For beach bums, outdoor aficionados – wearing shorts is the best thing on earth! And wearing it in floral pattern is the coolest. Just pick a lighter shade for a more classic vintage mood and something in neutral shade on top to balance everything out.

The Cropped Top : So if you want a top other than Mayor Lito Atienza’s classic floral look, two points to remember 1. Pick a floral pattern that blends well with other patterns (like this horizontal line) and color and 2. Go  for a semi-cropped top for that edgy vibe and pair them up with a colored bottoms, then the print will surely stand out.

The Off-shoulder Dress: Lastly for ladies night out goers, choose a floral pattern that is catchy, loud but lovely! Like these mixtures of dandelion and stargazer prints on an off-shoulder dress – fun, sexy and comfortable. Wear it with a nice pair of flat sandals and you’re good to go. Isn’t that easy?

PLUS SIZE MODEL: LOREN MONARES INTERVIEW (2013)

ERZULLIE: FIERCE PLUS SIZE FASHION

 

 

The instant we hear the term ‘glam life’ our minds start to roll. One may think of a woman having an opulent and luxurious life jet setting from one country to another, attending events that the masses would die to be invited to. Another scenario would be the “IT Girls” of the Metro filling their social pages with all the expensive clothes and gifts that they have been receiving. For short, it’s all about the exclusivity and the price tag attached to this kind of lifestyle.

 

But a new way of having the ‘glam life’ is emerging. Vulgarity of spending is now considered passe and downright cheap. There is now a new definition of living the ‘glam life’. Now? It’s all about the exuding of subtle wealth, class and poise of a person. An example of which, is Erzullie Icon and Plus Size Model, Loren Monares.
