BADGLEY MISCHKA DEBUTS THE SPRING 2023 COLLECTION

Badgley Mischka, the iconic American design house that exemplifies timeless glamour, debuted its spring 2023 collection at Spring  Studios on September 11th at 3:00 PM EST. This latest collection draws its inspiration from Mark Badgley and James’ Mischka recent travels to Morocco and celebrates the captivating allure and magic of the fabled Marrakesh and the city of Casablanca, which they had imagined so many times.

 

“Spring 2023 is about building bridges and forging alliances.  After two long years of staying in place, we were finally able to put our feet on the ground of a distant shore,” said Mark Badgley.

 

James Mischka added, “We brought back colors, smells, and experiences from the Medina and the Casbah, burnishing them to a cosmopolitan polish. We partnered with some of Casablanca’s famous workrooms to create embroideries and gowns inspired by tales of the desert and the sea, making them perfect for glamorous evenings in Beverly Hills or London.”

 

“Our print studios created artwork from our descriptions of the spices, the fruit, and the flowers we discovered, and brought them home. The hidden energy of the desert and the calm of the oasis meet the pulse of the nightlife in this collection.  Colors are spare and luscious – chalk, terracotta, ocean, aloe, melon, mango, pomegranate and limon,” Badgley concluded.

How To Style Graphic T-Shirts For Classy Dressing

If you love graphic t-shirts, you will probably have many of them in your wardrobe. They look cool and trendy and make you your best companion for casual dressing. A sassy quote or a cute image is enough to get you all the attention you want. But you may have some qualms about wearing it to work or on a formal occasion for the same reason. The truth is that you can actually wear your favorite tee anywhere by only being a little creative. Let us share a few easy styling ideas to carry a graphic t-shirt for chic dressing.

Featured Photo The Best Graphic Tees On The Internet

Stick with minimal graphics

The chic dressing is about minimalism, and you can achieve it by picking a tee with minimal graphics. You need not be too loud with words and pictures to say what you want. Just a word can pass a message, and a small image can do the trick. When you create your wardrobe, look for a mix of bold messages and one-word tees so that you have something for every occasion. Pick the appropriate one to make a mark with your style sense.

Choose a subtle color

Stylists recommend sticking with subtle shades for sophisticated dressing. Black is an evergreen favorite, though you can opt for white and gray if you like lighter hues. You can even carry a prominent graphic tee formally with these colors. Steer clear of bright tones like red, yellow, and green because they instantly catch anyone’s attention. Even a small text or image becomes more visible in these colors.

Layering does the trick

Layering is your best styling trick every time you want to dress chic. It can help you overcome the challenge of styling graphic t-shirts for work and formal occasions. Wearing your favorite tee under a blazer or jacket gives you the best of both worlds. You love the look and feel of the ensemble as both pieces complement each other perfectly. Moreover, you have endless options to add the element of fun to classy dressing.

Find a perfect fit

Although t-shirts are meant to be comfy, you cannot ignore the fit when carrying them to a formal occasion. Pick one that isn’t too tight because you need not look like a gym buff or show your flab. A loose fit is totally against the rule of chic dressing because it makes you look lazy and unkempt. Check the fits of the graphic tees in your wardrobe and set aside the right ones for formal dressing.

Carry your attitude

Nothing looks out of place if you carry it with the right attitude. If you are confident about wearing a graphic tee formally, show it with your attitude. As a rule, you must love what you wear to look good. Comfort is the key, so be sure to dress in garments you feel easy in. Think beyond the layering and bottom wear, and pair your tee with the best accessories to create the ultimate ensemble.

Styling graphic tees for chic dressing is easier than you imagine, provided you are creative and open-minded. Most importantly, experiment until you find what works for you!

Age-Old Lingerie Myths Debunked

Age-Old Lingerie Myths Debunked

Lingerie, particularly bras, are a woman’s wardrobe staple and also one of the most challenging pieces to buy. You want to find something that is comfortable, supportive, and pretty. It also needs to fit into your personal needs from exercise to a night out. And the hardest part just might be finding your correct size! Below are some of the most common myths and what you really need to know when building a lingerie wardrobe.

MYTH: It’s okay not to wear a bra at all

This is a somewhat controversial topic, but most experts will agree that it’s a good idea to wear a bra. A bra offers support and can take off the strain on your back and overall posture. If the root of not wanting to wear a bra is comfort, look for a soft yet supportive style like a bralette or one of the many wire free options.

MYTH: Straps provide all of a bra’s support

This is a big misconception and completely false. The majority of a bra’s support should come from the band and not the straps. If your bra is uncomfortable because the straps are sliding off or are digging into your shoulders, go down a band size and up a cup size or even two. For plus size women, consider wider bra straps with padding which can offer a combination of comfort and additional support.

MYTH: Finding your right size bra is complicated

Here are four things to keep in mind. 1) don’t get hung up on a size 2) understand that different brands fit differently, even when marked as the same size 3) learn how to measure yourself or make an appointment with a bra fitter 4) you can also buy a few sizes and styles online and try them on at home. Finding your right size bra is not that complicated, but it might require some patience. When trying on a bra, make sure that you try it on with a t-shirt so that you can see if you get the shape that you really want.

MYTH: Never wash your bra in the laundry machine

While some may recommend hand washing your lingerie, you can put your bras in the laundry provided that you do so carefully. Use a lingerie bag and make sure that you close the bra so that the hooks don’t catch on anything. Never put your bra in the dryer since heat will harm the spandex or other stretch fiber.

MYTH: Shopping for sustainable fabrics is challenging

For several years, there has been a big trend in shoppers wanting products that are earth friendly and responsibly made. Likely, this trend will continue as more products become available and prices are closer to what consumers are used to paying. Dora Lau, founder and CEO of Dora L International, a global sourcing and design company says, “the interest in sustainable products is part of the growing wellness trend. Woman are seeking products that are good for themselves as well as the environment. Purchases are more mindful and take into consideration how we feel about the brand and it’s social responsibility.” Lau says that great strides have been made with fabrics created from Bamboo, like Lenzing Modal and Tencel.

4 Simple Yet Effective Ways To Jazz Up Your Outfit

If you are real life fashionista and like to take care of your appearance, then this article could be of great use to you. Everyone likes to look their best as the clothes that you wear and the way that you present yourself can tell the world a lot about you. So, it is important to project a positive image out there for all to see. Continue to read on in order to learn some simple, yet effective ways that you can jazz up your outfit.

  1. Jewelry

A simple yet effective way to make any outfit pop is to add some sparkle and character in the form on jewelry. If you are unsure of how to choose the right jewelry for your outfit then don’t worry as some tips are listed below:

  • Focus on the necklines – for example, if you are wearing a V-neck then you may want a shorter necklace. Alternatively, if you have a boat neck, then you want a necklace that is longer. A turtleneck is great for earrings and bracelets, and pearls would go well with a sweetheart neck.
  • Do not go overboard – adding one or two pieces of jewelry is often more than enough. This is especially true for formal events when you want to look elegant. Choosing a few high-quality pieces such as crystal silver rings is highly recommended.
  • Choose a focal piece – if you have lots of loud and bold jewelry, it is advised that you do not wear them altogether. Instead, choose one bold piece out of your collection to be the focus.
  1. Shoes

Never underestimate the power of shoes! While you may not realize it, your shoes are one of the first things people look at when they see your outfit. So, be sure that your shoes match well and compliment your outfit. It is important to remember to clean your shoes too. Do not neglect this as leaving the house with muddy or dirty shoes is not a great look. Be sure to read the care instructions so that you can take care of the fabric of the shoe properly.

  1. Have the right bag

Another important consideration is the bag. Of course, not all outfits require a bag. However, if you plan on taking some essential items with you, taking a bag with you is recommended. A bag is a great way to add some color into your outfit if color is what you are lacking. So, if you are feeling an all-black look then you could pair this with a colorful bag to break up all the black shades.

  1. Makeup

Makeup for many is a great way to jazz up your outfit. You could go for a natural look if you please or you can find a way to match your makeup look with your outfit. For example, if you are wearing an orange shirt as part of your look, then why not compliment this with some orange eye make-up.
