Your bad mood could be due to that bad bra. Get fitted!

Shallow Breasts

Around ten percent of women have them. In some cases the breasts are going to develop like this because of breast feeding but some women are born with them. You want to choose bras that are offering a complete fullness. The push-ups need to have crescent-shaped padding so that lower breast tissue can be pushed up, making the breasts appear as if they are together.

Semi-Supported Breasts

Around 30% of women have such breasts. The fullness of a younger girl is not there but the appearance is definitely nice for most people. The great thing about these breasts is that you can choose any bra. They will all be stunning on you.

Self-Supported Breasts

There are around 16% of the women that have them. In many cases the word used to describe the breasts is implants. If augmentation surgery happened or an implant was put in, you have such breasts. The breasts are simply supported without or with the bra. In this case you can choose any bra type since its purpose would only to make the breast shape look more natural.

Uneven Breasts

A little over 40% of the women have such breasts. One of your breasts is simply larger. Uneven breasts normally appear since people have one side that is naturally stronger and more used. If you are right-handed, as an example, the right side breast is going to be smaller as you have larger arm muscles. You want to basically choose a bra that will fit the breast that is larger. Contour-cupped is a very good idea. The bra cup that has a really thin foam layer will be great filler that can mold the small breast’s disadvantage.

Settled Breasts

Statistics show that 27% of women have such breasts. The breasts are basically hanging or deflated. Support is needed in this case. When you age, the breasts will not remain as firm. They will be malleable. The good news in this case is that you can choose the desired shape through the bra. You just have to choose one that is well-structured and multi-part. The cup needs seams since this offers the nice shape and a great structure.

Hopefully, the advice offered here is going to help you out a lot at the end of the day. Choose your bras based on the breasts you have, not the breasts you want to have! This is, most likely, the best advice you will ever get.

The tutu skirts are perfect for romantic dates and night out.They are so pretty when paired with  crop top. Balance the bulk of the skirt with a form-fitting top that highlights your waist. They are quite flattering as midi length skirts.


How do I wear Midi skirt ?


The midi skirt was the beginning of a fashion evolution, that was evident in the rising hem lines in 1900. Love it or hate it, the midi is a classic piece that deserve it’s won chapter in the books of fashion evolution. 

When the midi first appeared it caused quite an uproar and lead to political and aesthetic revolution in womenswear. The midi skirt is a tricky silhouette to pull off. While it can be very flattering if paired with the right shoes and hem line, it can be a disaster if the length of the skirt doesn’t hit the right place bellow your knee.


This fashion trend favours tall and slim silhouette. The degree of difficulty  for this trend is pretty high so you will get a lot of fashion point to pull this one off.The lady like midi is now more sophisticated, streetwise , in tweeds and tartans. 

 There is a reason the midi skirt keeps bouncing back in fashion, it has been all over the catwalk for several season. The skirt is office appropriate and  flattering for all ages. They come in several print and material from edgy to floral and from casual boho to office appropriate pencil skirt. 

Split midi skirt are perfect office wear. The floral one looks great and can add some colour and life to the boring office wear.

Though it is better to opt for heels to pair with midi, they look dashing with ballet flats too.

The skirt that never goes out of style  makes for great two piece. These are easy to pull off. The midriff barring trend is modern and sleek. The midi paired with cropped top gives a casual vibe.

For the daring and the brave asymmetrical hem and geometrical prints. Another playful twist to the classic midi with asymmetrical hem lines and shear panel.

 The midi mostly regarded as formal skirt can be flirty and fun. In dark colour and myriads of prints the midi is for all occasion.

Jewel-toned satins midi paired with tall boots and turtlenecks, perhaps with a sliver of skin showing at the waist would get the temperatures high in winter.

 They are appropriate for winters too. I love the voluminous skirts paired with knits and plums. Yes, midi is definitely of those trend that you can wear all through the year in every season.


Why you need to get your clothes tailored

As a fashion student, I have a little more insight in the production of clothes.Tailored clothes fit much better than ready to wear clothes as rule of thumb. Let us discus the pros of getting your clothes tailored. 

#Tailored clothes are timeless and classic. They bring out the best in you accentuating  your asset.They make the best impression be it interview or social gathering. Through out the ages seamstress have been working behind the scenes, creating masterpieces.    


#Power dressing. Nothing beats a tailored suit. 

#Perfect fit. Mass produced clothes are made in standardized sizes that might not fit you properly. This is because our bodies are different and a shirt that might fit you shoulders may be too wide around the waist.On the other hand standardize sizes might fit you perfectly as it does for few people. They can straight way order clothes online and wear them the next day. While most of us had to tailor almost each garment or else compromise with the fit. 


#Girlboss need to have their clothes tailored. They need to make a lasting impression, and inspire the mass. 

#Comfort. Get comfortable in you own clothes that fits you like a dream. Banish extra fabric in unusual places, and highlight you best asset. 

#Your tailor is your personal designer, who makes one of a kind garment that makes its way into you wardrobe.

#Unique piece. Aren’t you tiered of seeing the exact similar piece from Zara or H&M that everyone seem to own. A tailored garment can be simple, but have knock off detailing that is not found on ready – to – wear garments.


#Get creative. Get involved in the process of tailoring . Help the designer to create a piece you will love. Fabrics, lining, colors, details … 

#Signature Style. It is easy to put you signature on a tailored piece than a regular ready-to wear garment. I seem to fall in love with a piece and stick to it for a really long time. I have shirt which are 5 years old and need to be trashed because I have worn them out.  I love shirt and the only way to get them right is to get them tailored.

#The cost factor. It might be expensive to get your clothes tailored but it is a worthy investment. Skilled seamstress will charge for their expertise but you will get a timeless and unique piece. My 5 piece french wardrobe can definitely afford tailored pieces. 


Every girl needs to have this item in their closet 

For the lazy girls out there the jumpsuit is the ultimate outfit. One outfit solution to all your problems : Monday morning blues, waking up late, no planned outfit, in the fashion rut, feeling supper lazyAll you need is the jumpsuit to jump-start your day and banish the problems.

Invented by Florentine Thayat in 1919, the first jumpsuit was a considered a liberating garment during the futuristic period. Thayat used cotton fabric or African canvas to cutout the shape of the garment and added few buttons and a belt. Thus the first jumpsuit was a creative do-it- yourself project by Thayat.

Fast forward to the twenty-first century the jumpsuit gain popularity with the likes of Stella McCartney, Agyness Deyn, Katie Holmes, Rihanna and several other fashionistas sporting this trend. Jumpsuits are made of cotton, denim, lace, silk, sheer fabrics now, along with embellishment and other detailing. In 2011 Jumpsuits dominated the runway and red carpet. Renowned designers houses like Saint laurent, Alexander Wang, Paul&Joe, Diane Von Frustenberg, Marc Jacobs and several other add their own creative twist to the jumpsuit.

When you are in a hurry and don’t know what to wear the jumpsuit is the safest bet and way better than jeans and t-shirt.Honestly, I love jeans and t-shirt combo but it doesn’t really pack a punch like a jumpsuit does.

Pulling off an head to toe  white look has never been easier. French style lovers this is something you can’t do without.

They make great party wear too.Get ready for Girl’s Night Out in short notice and look amazing.

They are so versatile. Myriads of prints to choose from so it never gets boring. For the prints lovers jumpsuits are available in floral print, animal print, stripped, polka dot, tribal print and etc.

Monochrome ones are most common and available in wide rage of colour from pastel to darker earth tones. Perfect day to-night transition outfit. Swap the accessories and get ready to party.

Laid back, casual and effort less looks in these bold colour are my favorite. Planing minimalist look have never been easier than opting for a jumpsuit.

Travel friendly outfit : dress it up or wear it casually. 

Minimalist fashion must-have suitable for almost all season. Add a trench, jacket or blazer to make it appropriate for cooler weather. 


The off shoulder trend you need to know about


Bardot Tops

The top takes its names from the French Style icon Brigitte Bardot. Off – shoulder tops or Bardot tops are extremely flattering on most women. This easy breezy summer trend is raging this season and seem to a favorite of the bloggers and models.Baring you shoulders requires confidence and this particular trend is bound to grab attention.

They have been around since the classic times, endorsed by Brigitte Bardot and hence the name Bardot tops. Very flattering and yet daring cut is subtle sexy and chic. Pair them with jeans for casual look and with mid-length skirts for a more polished look.This is a must have summer essential.

They look amazing when paired with Choker. I love chokers and they are the perfect accessories for the shoulder baring tops.

Kendall Jenner seem to favor pairing the off- shoulder tops with chokers.


From Brigitte Bardot to Kendal Jenner the off shoulder trends is definitely loved by celebrities.

They are available is various fabric and fit. From body-con belly baring off the shoulders top to free flowing , semi structured Bardot tops. Not so sure about the trend go for the  free flowing top in soft fabric, not too clingy with minimal shoulders baring cut. They will be flattering on most body types.

In case you are really unsure about baring your shoulder, cover up with jackets or blazers that suits the occasion.

The off shoulder trend has been circulating for quite a long time, definitely a piece to add to my 5 piece french Wardrobe this season.

All you need to know about 5 Piece French Wardrobe Part 1

If she can’t afford it, she won’t buy it. If it doesn’t fit (or make her feel good, or flaunt what she’s got), she won’t wear it. If she can’t find it, she won’t compromise. If she loves it, she won’t toss it. She reuses it, rethinks it, lets it age.

When a French girl shops, it isn’t a solitary act of buying something new. It’s part of a lifelong process of editing her environment, making small but meaningful additions to her home, her closet and her life.

Emma Watson for Net-a-Porter The Edit Issue

Emma Watson poses for Net-a-Porter’s The Edit . The 23 year old star poses in five gorgeous dresses made by Burberry Prorsum, Christopher Kane, Victoria Beckham, Erdem and Roland Mouret looking  absolutely amazing in these chic alternatives.

Since her visit to a factory in Bangladesh  she has been  questioning the current state of affairs: “I can’t wrap my head around why ethical clothing is a speciality and not a base standard. Why is it special to have something you know wasn’t made under terrible conditions by a 12-year-old girl for 20 pence an hour?”

I live in India , Bangladesh’s neighboring country where there are factories with similar working condition as in Bangladesh. Some indian retailer’s even export from bangladesh because of their high productivity.
