 While looking at the streets through my window during the hot season, it does not surprise me much with the fashion statements that women pull off. The summer season generally has the same style of adorning the outfits, the same dresses for women, denim shorts, ladies tops, especially the crop tops and a few outfits with denim pants too.

What surprises me the most is the usage of the same style of dresses to different venues. To be precise, CROP TOPS are the most versatile garments of the fashion industry, which have been a rage for a past couple of years. I have been seeing women adorning crop tops at almost all occasions, from office hours to casual day outs, from events and concerts to formal parties.

Crop tops exemplify fashion resilience. Styling them from weddings to casual day- outs have been creating fashion statements from Hollywood and Bollywood to the local streets. Here are three basic styles of crop tops which portray how women have adorned these ladies tops in their own unique way.



Crop Tops have been lately used for wedding lehengas for the Indian weddings and have been exhibited by a number of renowned women on the fashion magazines and tabloids. The soon-to-be-mother, Mira Kapoor, Wife of Shahid Kapoor dazzled the crop top style on her wedding reception and looked fabulously charming and elegant.

2Even the other Bollywood actress showcased their classic styles in the same attire over the ramp walks and other events where Crop tops are used to grace the beauty of their ensembles.



Getting clothed in for office has its own rules and regulations, but crop tops are one of those ladies tops which perfectly make room for itself into the rigid guidelines. Without exposing too much midriff, this style of ladies tops could be teamed up with high waisted trousers or pencil skirts and could be even layered over with a jacket or cardigan.




This style has no end, you could team up the crop tops with N number of bottoms, just say the name and the crop top is all ready to dress you up. Denim pants, casual shorts, flared skirts, mini skirts, maxi skirts and even with dungarees, the crop tops are surpassing all other forms of ladies tops when coming to styling.





12What else do women need? Isn’t it the most curious ladies top which you could start donning from your early teens until your late adulthood. Yes!!! You are right… This is it. I can only say, If you’ve got it, flaunt it! The summer’s best belly-baring tops are waiting for you to beautify your silhouettes in a much sexier and flattering way.

The History And Application Of Merino Wool

Merino wool is not a commonly known wool that is used to produce a high quality piece of clothing. But what is merino wool and how is it sourced, and how is it different from traditional wools?

Merino is an influential breed of sheep that is well known for its quality wool. These sheep are regarded as having the finest and softest wool, when compared to all the different breeds of sheep.

The History
An unknown fact is that more than half of the world’s sheep population are descendants from merino sheep, or from a merino cross breed. This breed originated from Spain. Sheep are mainly traded for their meat and for wool, with the merino being chosen and traded for their wool, specifically. This can also be a result of them having much smaller bodies than other breeds. Australia and New Zealand and many other countries are now considered major exporters of the wool, along with Spain.

Originally the term ‘Merino’ would strictly mean wool that is from Spanish merino sheep. But since other countries are providing high quality wool also, the term has been broadened further.

Applications & Current Uses
Merino wool is often described as springy and tightly crimped, although there are different strains that produce different classifications of wool. The different classifications can be divided into medium, fine medium, fine, superfine and ultra fine.

The wool has many different applications throughout the clothing industry. This ranges from high-end fashion to running clothing. Not forgetting that it is also widely used within skiing, hiking, cycling and mountain climbing clothing. It has become a main choice because of its ability to provide insulation and because of its superiority over other wools and fabrics.

The reason for it being used so widely is because of the properties of the wool, when compared to other fabrics. Here’s a short list of the benefits:

– A high warmth to weight ratio, compared to other wools.
– Contains antibacterial properties.
– One of the softest wool types available.
– It’s ability to maintain warmth when wet.
– Great at regulating body temperature.
– Stretches but maintains its shape.
– A breathable material.

The fashion industry has also not overlooked the additional benefits that the wool can provide their clothing. For example a large number of high quality women and mens merino jumpers that are 100% pure are very popular, for the benefits listed above.

Another reason that is often overlooked is the sensitivity of the wool. Because it is a natural fibre, it is soft on the skin and will reduce the irritation for people who have sensitive skin.

Stephane Rolland’s AW12 Couture

Selected for the prestigious Melier awards, Stephan Rolland’s SS11
can truly bear the brand as an Haute Couture designer.

The Frenchman studied at the Ecole de la Chambre Syndicate de la Haute Coutre before winning his position at Balenciaga at the tender age of 20 as Innovative Director of menswear until he joined the Haute Couture fashion house of Jean-Louis Scherrer as Artistic Manager where he remained for a further ten years.

However, now, he has created pieces of art of his own for his own Haute Couture fashion house of Stephane Rolland’s SS12 Couture Rolland. In the illustrious encircling of the Cite de l’architecture et du Patrimoine at Tracadero Place, it seemed befitting for the French designer to present a show of floor-sweeping gowns encapsulating the complexity and elegance of Paris and its history for high fashion, through the Haute Couture Paris Fashion 7 days.

Inspired by the kinetic art of the late French artist, Michel Deverne, whose appeal to reinvent public space with art whilst working with a variety of materials to create shapes that play with light were a distinct explanation for Rolland’s visual interpretation and awareness to detail of architectural space. Taking defined shapes of spiral creations and fragmented scales on broad shoulders and sleeves – often created when playing with cellular characteristics; these shapes were signs of the Deverne’s creations but Rolland’s exquisite craftsmanship.

The strong colour palette of gleaming whites, fiery reds and lustrous blacks with hints of pistachio greens represented a colour palette to be adorned by the beauty and strength of a powerful woman. Gorgeous gowns skimmed the models silhouettes, elongating the body in every way, wore a series of plunging necklines, accentuated shoulders and cinched waists. The French designer’s deliverance of stylish fabrics of silks; gazar, chiffons, organza and a cascade of ostrich feathers, boldcut-outs with gold accents, leather gloves, only covering their fingers, took precedent throughout the range as a showcase of chic elegance.

But, it was Rolland’s performance stopping finale that had the audience is complete awe of his awesome expo of skilful craftsmanship. Wearing a fierce some red dress, weighing more than a 100 pounds, former supermodel Yasmin Le Bon, escorted with two smartly dressed assistants, is a stature of grandeur within this skilfully crafted open-back gown embroidered with a sequin of blood red detailing streaming the front and expansive trail trailing behind her, artfully displayed as a work of art, brought the show to a satisfying end of radiant splendour.

Flash Back to the ‘80s on the Runway

What goes around comes around, especially when referring to the fast-paced world of fashion. No matter what your preference for fashion may have been in years past, chances are, you will ultimately get to revel in the fashion choices of that decade once again as the trends come full circle. Just about every 30 years (give or take a few years), the same styles or a variation thereof come back into the mainstream of fashion. Even if they are not mainstream trends, given the cyclical nature of the fashion world, these styles will most likely show up on the runway and you can once again enjoy them.

Many individuals do not keep the same clothes in their closets for thirty years, and even if they have, it is recommended to dig out those garments which resemble those being worn in haute couture. Chances are, what’s truly “in” style today is a bit removed from what was “in” thirty years ago. There are, however, similarities in fashion this fall and winter 2009 season to what was hot back in the 1980’s.

One hot item this season that was all the rage when Madonna first entered the public eye is ripped stockings. Who can forget the Material Girl’s torn and tattered image, complete with ripped hose, bracelets upon bracelets, and black eyeliner? This look has been reminisced about and now has been revised and reinvented this season on the runway.

Many models are using tight, ripped stockings to achieve the hard rock look, with lots of glam makeup and black. On the other hand, some are leaving this look for a more progressive ‘90’s look and bringing back the ripped stockings in a grunge-type fashion, with big boots and chunkier accessories.

One thing you must make sure to not do is rip the stockings in a way that leaves others unsure if it was intentional! If you are pairing the stockings with a cute, short tweed skirt or other ‘office appropriate’ clothing, make sure to also wear jewelry and accessories that clearly let the world know you are not headed off to your cubicle later that morning! Those in the know suggest using scissors or even a cheese grater to make intentional holes in the tights or stockings so that they are big enough and oddly placed. You can get really creative with this rock-chic look!

Seen often with the ripped stockings is plaid and tartan. Plaid patterns on the tights themselves, as well as blazers and skirts or the shirts underneath them are just some of the looks that will be seen this fall and winter. 2009 sees a lot of various colors for plaid as well, not just the traditional black or grey pattern. Popular colors this season include blues, greens and yellows. Obviously, plaid needs to be worn with care; you should really only wear one plaid piece at a time to avoid looking overdone. Some celebrities that are fond of this trend are the ever-fashionable Katie Holmes and supermodel Kate Moss. Actress Mischa Barton has also been seen sporting this look.

Another accessory making a comeback is the feather. This is a throwback, obviously, to the days of hats for the ladies and bowties for the gentlemen. However, the look is not a dated one and whether you love ‘em or hate ‘em, the feather is being worn this year on many pieces in a single fashion, as well as making an appearance in feathery-type skirts and dresses. Expect to see lots of feathers around the neckline as well. This look is more popular with women than with men, although some feather ties (made by Lanvin) have actually been spotted out there!

Get the rock chick look for grown ups

Growing up doesn’t mean you have to start dressing like your more elderly relations, there’s plenty of room in your wardrobe for fun, exciting and interesting outfits no matter what age you are. There are few styles as great for letting your hair down and getting ready to party as the classic rock chick, and you’ll be glad to know that you don’t necessarily have to leave it behind as you get older. All you need to do is make some minor adjustments to the basics and you’ll have a rock chick look that will allow you to party all night whatever age you are.

The rock chick look can be very flattering to women of all ages as long as you’re willing to say good-bye to some of the more risqué favourites. With a few simple swaps, you’re already halfway there. Ditch the teeny tiny mini skirts in favour of tight black pencil skirts and swap bright pink leopard print leggings for a pair of muted metallic tights. The rock chick look is all about attitude, so look for ways you can tone down the style without losing any of the intent.

Slim or skinny fit jeans are perfect especially when teamed with a classic, fitted white shirt or a vest top. Good boots are another essential and even if you think your days of thigh highs are past, a small heel and some kick ass pointy toes are just the thing to give your outfit an edge. The key to updating the rock look is to mix grunge with grown up glamour. Think faded band t-shirt combined with a gorgeous gold pendant or a rough and tough jeans and jacket combo softened by a pink slip and a slash of red lipstick.

Leather trousers and skirts are another characteristic rock look that just keeps coming back and if you have the figure to get away with them, go for it. Moderation is the key thing to remember here, while leather trousers and a simple singlet can look great, if you pair leather boots, trousers and jacket, you could end up looking like a washed out star rather than a fashion-savvy woman in her prime.

Of course, the real crowning glory to any rock chick ensemble is a beautiful, tough leather biker jacket. Choose wisely and your leather jacket will see you through thick and thin as it will look great with everything from skinny jeans and plimsolls to covering a floaty white dress and sandals. There are few jackets as versatile as the biker jacket and while it has real rock and roll roots, it’s now also a firm fashion favourite with trend setters the world over.

Transform yourself into a sophisticated rock chick ready for a wild night on the tiles by slipping on your womens leather biker jacket, using some soft kohl to outline your eyes and accessorising with some oversized silver or gold bangles. You’ll have the grown up rock chick look down to a T, all you’ll need to do to hang on to that glamorous aura is stay away from karaoke bars and the temptation to blast out a few classics.

Bralettes Are an Essential Layering Piece to Achieve a Fashion-Forward and Easy-To-Wear Style

Layering clothing serves many purposes. First and foremost, layering is practical because wearing several pieces of clothing adds warmth and allows you to remove items as the day gets warmer. But layering isn’t just for the practical dresser. For you fashion-conscious ladies out there, layering is a key way to look of-the-moment, too!

Using the layering method isn’t always as easy as it would seem. For example, several pieces of clothing of the same length can add volume to your tummy or hip area, resulting in an unflattering look. Likewise, bulky or frilly pieces worn underneath clothing can result in an awkward appearance.

The good news is there is an easy way to follow the layering trend to look fashionable while cutting down on the time it takes to put your outfit together. Because let’s face it – we all have better things to do than to spend hours layering and un-layering while trying to get the right look. Fashion, after all, should be fun. And the best way to make getting dressed fun is to keep it simple.

That’s why bralettes are a fantastic source for achieving the layered look in an easy-to-wear way. Bralettes are wire-free bras that provide support and shape without constricting wires. Bralettes can either be soft-cup (i.e., without padding) or lightly padded. Many bralettes come with removable pads, allowing women to decide when they want extra padding and when they don’t. Usually, bralettes have slightly higher bust lines and therefore look like camisoles when layered under clothing.

To achieve the layered look with a bralette you want to look for one that offers support for your bra cup size while looking attractive showing under clothing. Some bralettes have lace trim at the top of the bust line and therefore add a feminine touch to an outfit. Other bralettes are lace-free and offer a more streamlined look that is similar to a traditional camisole. The most important thing is to find a bralette that fits both your cup and band size accurately as well as your personal style preference.

The bottom line is, don’t let the idea of achieving the right look through layering stress you out. Take a deep breath, relax, and reach for your bralette the next time you’re looking to add a pretty touch under your clothes.

The leather jacket in popular culture

Leather jackets occupy a unique place in fashion history. They’re one of the few items of clothing that almost never go out of style, even though they do experience phases in their popularity.

This is partly because of the special place leather jackets occupy in popular culture, particularly in films. If you’re wondering how the leather jacket became so cool, here’s a quick introduction.

The history of the leather jacket

Leather jackets are commonly thought to have been popularised by the military and pilots in the early 20th century. Indeed, some of the most iconic images of leather jackets are from World War Two, when they were nicknamed “bomber jackets” since they were worn by fighter pilots. During the war, leather jackets were reinforced with thick insulation, to protect pilots from cold weather while flying. However, leather jackets were also said to be popular in Russia with the Bolsheviks, and the exact origins are often disputed.

The popularity of leather jackets in the immediate post-war period is often attributed to a combination of their wartime importance and their appearance on film. David Niven, for instance, glamorously sported a bomber jacket in the film A Matter of Life and Death (1946), in which he played a RAF pilot. Actor Jimmy Stewart – a real-life US bomb squadron leader during the war – also wore one in the 1957 film Night Passage, as did Marlon Brando in The Wild One (1953).

But the most famous wearer of leather biker jackets in the 1950s was James Dean. His iconic turns in films like Rebel Without a Cause, coupled with his tragic death, only helped to boost the stylishness of the fashion item.

Leather jackets after the 1950s

Punk bands like the Ramones kept leather jackets fresh in the 1970s, as did films like Grease and the TV series Happy Days. And Tom Cruise’s fleece-collared leather jacket in Top Gun sparked a new trend in the 1980s. Leather jackets are still popular today, though they have largely lost the associations with the military. And since they are generally quite warm, leather jackets have become a practical choice as well as a stylish one with many people across the UK.

Traditionally, leather jackets are made from animal hide. Today, leather jackets may be made from this material, but are more likely to consist of an imitation material like PVC or polyurethane. As a result, they’re usually vegan friendly and often cheaper than those made from real animal hide.
