What’s with floral petticoats and headgear just because you have stepped into your 50’s? What looks good on you one year would look outdated just because you have grown a year older is bizarre; it isn’t always this cut and dried.

If you are afraid you are going to ‘look’ old in your 50’s you most probably will. However, remember most of the time you are what you wear and the way you dress up can take off years of your actual age.

Instead of bright floral dresses, go for solid figure-hugging, knee length dresses. The lack of skin show adds a nice mature touch while subtly making you look well less than your age. You can team this up with a smart scarf and some pumps.

Have you noticed how women shift to polo t-shirts as they grow old, why on earth? It has become almost clichéd now, and no, it doesn’t help unless of course you’re off to play golf and team polo up with a smart slim-fitting pair of trousers. Stick to stripes (vertical or horizontal depending upon your body shape) and not-too-loud prints. Leave graphic t shirts with rock band emblem on it for your kids.

For a formal look, try pencil skirts and crisp fitting suits. There’s nothing more alluring than power radiating from the way you dress. Don’t forget that accessories make up for 40% of your overall look, so invest in good handbags, classy jewelry, original scarves and comfortable shoes.

Pullovers again are great, team them up with a string of pearls. Keep a tab on your neck and hem line, the former shouldn’t be too low and the latter too high. Wrap around dresses, handkerchief skirts, and maxi dresses are safe bets for any age.

Scarves should be a patent in your wardrobe considering its versatility. Whether you want to add a splurge of color to your outfit or go semi-formal, scarves can be easily manipulated to suit the look. Cotton, and polyester are best for regular wear while if you’re looking for exquisite gifts items, try pashmina and silk scarves, these are known for their opulence and delicate soft fabric.

Faux fur jackets in hot pink are such a disaster at any age. Trench coats, slim-fitting jackets, cardigans, pea coat, and shawls are some winter accessories you can stock up on.

The number one rule to looking young at any age is to stay fit. Workout regularly and keep a check on those junk food cravings.

Wishing you a great Holiday Season,

The way you dress up creates an impression even before you speak a word. Where crisp, business outfits play a dominating role in creating a professional look, your accessories can either make or break that look.

businessLess is more– Never over-do the look with a jumble of accessories. Stick to a small pendant or tear drop earrings instead of big hoops. Also, if you plan to wear a waist-enhancing belt over your suit or dress, make sure it is not flashy and overly large. The clients or colleagues should take in your appearance as a whole and not focus on a loud piece of accessory first. Avoid accessories, especially jewellery that clink and clatter, as it makes you look unorganized and not in control. Go for pearl over silver or brass, pearl also has an elegant touch to it.

Wear proper shoes- Shoes say a lot about you, and whether you are dressed in trousers or skirt, getting the right pair is essential. Steer clear of anything that has a casual appeal; sandals, knee-high boots, or sequenced shoes are oh so wrong. A pair of solid pumps is an ideal choice, but if you are partial to flats, try going for ballet flat in black.

Keep the handbags simple- Whether you want to mix-and-match with your attire, or bring in a contrast, your handbag should be nothing flashy. Stick to the basic brown, beige, or black and make sure it is multi-functional so that you don’t need to carry stuff in your hand.

business-2Scarf it up- Scarves help to break the monotone of an office outfit, but without becoming too overbearing. Go for simpler patterns and avoid the flashy ones. Silk scarves are a better option as they have a rich feel to them and instantly add a touch of opulence to your attire. Keep in mind that silk scarves are also great for those who have metal allergy and have to stay away from basic jewelry.

Impress the olfactory senses- Not a lot of people pay attention to their choice of perfume or cologne while preparing for business meetings. Go for musk over floral tones. Also, do not bathe in perfume if you don’t want to suffocate your prospective business partners or clients.

A quick tip from WomenClothingToday- Never fidget or play with your accessories, if you are one to do so, lightly clamp your hands together and keep it on your lap.

To your success!

Like a heavenly gift, you’ve just received the call from your prince charming, asking you out for a date. You’ve been eagerly waiting for this day, and it’s finally here, and you want to look your best.  Here are a few dos and don’ts that you must absolutely maintain on your first date.

DOs and DON’Ts


17-1Most important thing to do –
BE YOU. Don’t try to be what you’re not. It is very easy for your date to see through and it will be a big put off for him.

Dress to the occasion – If it’s a lunch date, go for the blues, pinks, purples or greens. Your dress should be selected keeping in mind the colour trends and fashion trends. As usual, the black dress comes in handy on any occasion. With proper accessories, you can present yourself as a suave and sophisticated lady. Choose from among the red silk scarves, royal silk scarves or purple silk scarves to add to your personality. On Hundertwasser’s anniversary, why not try the large scarves designed by him. Black dress with the silken scarves makes you look elegant and confident about yourself. If you are worried about those love handles you recently developed after binging this holiday season, then relax! Animal scarves worn with the black dress have the capacity to conceal all those bulges, so you can look slim and sexy. Don’t go in for high heeled shoes if you are not used to wearing them. Your discomfort will be obvious. A strappy sandal looks equally dainty.

Learn to Listen –Talking too much and not listening to the other person can be a major irritation for the other person. Play it cool. Listen well and talk about your common interests.

Good behaviour – Be polite and nice under all circumstances. Even if you don’t like certain aspects, don’t turn aggressive. You have to understand that the other person might be equally nervous and some glitches on his part must be forgiven. Don’t be judgemental but be reasonable and practical in your expectations. Try and be in good humour and not too serious. Always drink in moderation and not out of your senses. Do remember to thank your date for giving you this wonderful time.

Finding your true love is one of the most enchanting gifts of life. Treasure it in your heart.

If you have a beloved and are looking for a surprise Christmas gift for her, choose from among the wide range of large scarves at Women Clothing Today.

Wishing you all the best,

A visionary and a miraculous artist, Hundertwasser has been an inspiration for many, with his art work a unique blend of colours that any art lover would love to die for. Women Clothing Today has taken inspiration from the great artist and dedicated an entire collection to him that can compete successfully with any of the latest fashion trends.

20-1

WomenClothingToday Hundertwasser Collection

Hundertwasser has been widely popular for his unique style of painting and architecture, who used the power of his art to spread the message of importance of living in harmony with nature. The eccentric, self-advertising artist from Vienna is a symbolic figure for living a non-conformist life, who dedicated his individual creativity to raise awareness about environmental protection.

He was so much in love with artwork that he painted wherever he was – on the road, in the garden, at home, on a train, in a café or restaurants, or just anywhere – and had no studio. An eccentric painter, he would simply spread the canvas flat in front of him and start painting, rather than sketching on an easel.

Widely known as a self-determined alternative existence ambassador, Hundertwasser was a unique artist – different from painters of his times. His eccentricity reflected fairly well in his paintings, which were done in oil and with egg tempera, using different pains in a single painting. He would also use shiny lacquers and put each painting next to the other to see how each of them were distinct in colors and texture.

Women Clothing Today Honors Hundertwasser’s Art Work: An Entire Collection Dedicated to the Artist

He experimented with different techniques, loved painting on used wrapping papers, pieces of plywood, switchboard, and invented new painting techniques. At Women Clothing Today, on Hundertwasser’s anniversary, we have decided to pay homage to the great artist, who expressed his unruly artistic vision in pictorial art, philosophy, environmentalism, flags, postage stamps, and clothing, by dedicating an entire collection to his artwork, which uses bright colors and organic forms, setting new fashion trends.

Visit our distinct collection of hand painted silk scarves, using vibrant colors and bold designs, which characterize Hundertwasser’s art style. For Hundertwasser’s art lovers, there are no better Christmas gifts than these colorful silk scarves: red, blue, purple combined with yellow, green and pink!

For any art and fashion lover, these handmade scarves are the best gifts!

Wishing you all the best!
