Choosing the Right Necklace for Different Necklines

Choosing the right necklace for an outfit is an ultimate must-do when aiming for a stylish look. If this is done wrongly it can turn your outfit into a big Nah!

First things first, you  have to know the different types of necklines and what necklaces go best with them. Some necklines are very versatile, so almost any necklace works well with them, while others suit only one or two specific styles.

The V neck line:

A necklace that mimic’s the v neck of the dress works well. Go for a piece that ends somewhere mid chest, and avoid things that would drape into you cleavage. A shorter necklace would keep attention off your chest and more on your face, and the necklace won’t get lost in your shirt.

Wearing Heels to Work

How to wear high heels to work without loosing it

Wearing high heels makes women walk in a more feminine way but how do you this for the whole day?

Before we begin, note this! Make sure you buy and wear shoes that are the right size. Have your feet measured when you’re buying shoes, for width and for length as well.

1. Heels and Soles

If you are required to stand all day at work and you choose to wear heels, then go for thicker/blocked heeled shoes such as wedges. They  are a great comfortable option. They provide more cushioning than the thin soles/ stilettos. Likewise, opt for thinker soles/platforms. They cushion your soles and take some of the pressure off when you walk.

2 . Have a healthy routine 

For those ladies who sit at a desk all day, you can just kick off your shoes and allow your feet breathe & rest. Put them back on when you have to stand or move around. Taking put time to stretch your toes and ankle is very healthy and relives some of the pain. Stick with lower heels as they tend to be more comfortable and cause less pain.

Modern Muslim Bridal Dresses

We have come across a lot of stylish Muslim brides and that prompted this article. Most people believe that a Muslim bride cannot be stylish; well we beg to differ.

A Muslim wedding ceremony is called a Nikah. A Muslim wedding dress is basically based on personal preference and style. The only clear rule regarding Islamic wedding dresses is that they have to adhere to religious customs; this means that women are not allowed to show their legs, torsos, shoulders or arms.

There is no specific colour that is off-limits for a woman involved in a Muslim marriage ceremony. Brides are free to choose gowns in whatever shade they please, though many modern women choose to stick with white or light shades.

 

Henna, Mehndi (Indian) or Lali (Hausa) which it is a form of beautification is applied on the feet and hands of the bride and her friends to make them stand out. Finding a modest yet stylish  white wedding gown may prove difficult, but see a lovely collection that you might like
