Today we are celebrating glorious curves! Accentuating your waistline can be very tricky. That's why we have chosen 4 comfy yet stylish looks anyone (no matter your body shape) can easily pull off. You think hide, we say highlight! Scroll down and learn how to streamline your overall look with our tips and tricks.

1. Create The Illusion

Two simple colors, that's all it takes! Colorblocking is a great way to create the illusion of having a smaller waist. Look for dresses with geometric shapes or where the sides are darker and taper in towards the middle. Let the light central color stand out and the rest will fade away.

2. Belt It Up

You don't have much time? This quick and easy tip is the way to go. Pick out a belt and create the perfect hourglass figure in just a few seconds. A belt will help create a waistline on any look!

3. Combine A Solid Skirt With A Striped Top

Horizontal stripes, combined with a high-waisted skirt in a solid color like white, black or blue will make your waist look smaller! This is because the horizontal stripes visually work as a belt which will show off your beautiful curves and waistline.

4. Accentuate Your Look With Jewellery

You will want to pull your curve-highlighting look together with the right jewellery. Longer earrings and necklaces will highlight your shoulders. A stack of glittery bracelets can draw attention to your hips. These simple details will complete your outfit and will give you confidence!

5 Tips for Travelling in Style & Comfort

The holidays are right around the corner! For many of us this means a lot of travelling, whether you're going halfway around the world to see your family, or are just finally exploring somewhere warm and exotic for your much-awaited vacation days.

It's time to say goodbye to your sloppy airport look and show up to your destinations looking fresh and neat! We’ve compiled a list of 5 tips for you on how to travel in style, while remaining comfortable and practical.

1. Flats, Flats, Flats

Chances that most of us are not like celebrities with assistants holding our bags. So sticking to flats is probably the safest strategy when you travel. With the right choices, you can look just as stylish… minus all the pain. Try wearing loafers and slip-ons so you can save some time at the security gate.

2. Layer it Up

Keep in mind that no matter where you are heading to, it's always colder on the plane. Although you can always ask for blankets, it’s good to be prepared with extra layers for your own comfort. You definitely don't want to risk catching a cold on your holiday.

3. Keep it Soft & Stretchy

A pair of jeans are great for many situations, but can feel restrictive when you need to sit for a long time. When it comes to the perfect pair of pants for travel, we search for something soft and stretchy, with a nice fit. Bonus points if it has pockets!

4. Use Bags that Fit Everything (and Keep ’em Organized)

Let’s face it. You don’t want to dig into your purse for hours looking for your lipstick. But you do want to keep everything you (over)packed for your trip in one place. That’s why we need sizable travel bags that can fit everything yet keep everything you need organized and at your fingertips.

5. Maintenance!

No one wants to look (or smell) like a slob when you get off the plane and get ready to receive hugs and kisses from your loved ones. But that can happen after 12 hours of flying and overnight layovers. Instead of attempting to cover it up with heavy makeup, keep your look refreshed with these magic tools.

Now, ready to start packing up your bags? Bon Voyage!

A job interview is stressful as is, so the last thing you want to have to worry about is what to wear. Everyone wants to make a good first impression, and the best way to do that is to dress appropriately for the interview.

The most important thing to keep in mind is creating a look that is both professional and neat, but you should also wear clothes that make you feel confident and comfortable. Don’t overdress, but don’t underdress either! We will guide you to reach a good balance between the two.

Blazer

The blazer is a type of jacket resembling a suit jacket, but cut more casually. You can either wear a blazer formally with trousers, or more casually if you combine it with a pair of dark jeans.

Power Suit

Another one of our favorite looks combines a blazer with matching trousers. This creates a very chic and professional look, and don't feel like you need to limit yourself to the traditional black, blue or grey.

Basic Blouse

Pair a blazer with a blouse in a neutral color for a professional, put together look. A white blouse always works well.

Turtleneck Pullover

A turtleneck is a chic and a classic choice. It is easy to wear under a blazer, and you can get it in many different colors. It's a true wardrobe essential.

Footwear

Depending on the type of interview, you can easily make your outfit more chic or more casual with different kinds of footwear. One way to make your outfit more chic is to add ankle boots to your outfit. There are thousands of ankle boot options; pointed toe or rounded toe, tall shaft or short shaft, suede or leather… They are also comfortable to wear and match almost every outfit! Adding platform shoes to your outfit will give you a more casual look.
