Footwear

Sport ShoesTrend driven, youth oriented, and mass marketed, everybody swears by footwear. For the woman who wants to walk the walk, these shoes stand out and give you a fresh stylish look. Shoes are synonymous with high glamour and full-throttle sex appeal. Shoes are thus, the foremost accessories that are a must. The shoes that a person wears give the very essence to their outfit. While sports shoes suffice for casual wears like jeans or shorts, one should be very careful with the kind of footwear that he/she uses for formal wear.

Shoes should be stylish but not at the cost of comfort, thus pencil-heeled shoes are not worth the amount of pain and discomfort that they cause. Besides if one cannot carry them well, and if it makes a person trip over, they cause embarrassment as well. Right now platform-heeled shoes are very much in fashion. They come in chic geometrical cuts, which gives a very sexy look to formal dresses. The following various types of footwear are also in fashion.

Flip-flops - They are a kind of flat, backless sandal that consist of simple soles held on the foot by a V-shaped strap that passes between the first (big) and second toes and around either side of the foot, attached to the sole at three points, commonly known as the thong strap.

Tennis ShoesSandals - They are an open type of shoe and footwear, consisting of a sole held to the wearer`s foot by straps or thongs. A sandal reveals most or all of the foot (especially the toes) to view. People may choose to wear sandals for comfort in warm weather, and (especially for women) for reasons of fashion and attractiveness. There are many different kinds of sandals in the world. A sandal may have a sole made from rubber, leather, rope, or other materials. It may be held by a thong that passes between the big and second toe, or by a strap that passes over the arch of the foot, with or without a heel strap. It may have no heel, a high heel, or anything in between. Usually, sandals are very comfortable during the warmer spring and summer parts of a year, because feet stay cool, dry and fresh.

Sneakers/Trainers - They are also called gym shoes or tennis shoes. They are general purpose athletic shoes; made out of rubber, cloth, and/or plastic to be lightweight, flexible, and have good traction. Special varieties available for basketball or tennis.

Bags

Kelly BagThe vivid color patterns and designs carved on fashion bags reflect the uniqueness of the bags. Long strapped ones, short strapped ones or small stylish ones, whichever ladies buy, they should always choose the color carefully, for it should go with most the outfits. Crotchet bags or knitted bags look great in this season. Cloth bags with bright colors and flowery patterns are also in vogue. Premium quality design bags embellished with exotic thread embroidery, glass beads, mirrors on high quality fabrics like pure silk, raw silk, cotton silk, cotton, tissue are in vogue in this season.

Ladies should apply these easy steps to getting a bag in proportion to their figure: One should try to choose a shape, which is the opposite of your body type. If a person is tall and thin, she should look for a slouchy, rounded bag to compliment her figure.

If one is short and voluptuous, she could play off opposites by choosing a handbag that is tall and rectangular or long and sleek.

In general, the rounder the figure, the more structured the bag should be. Thus, rectangular or square silhouettes in soft leathers or fabrics will do the trick.

Close-fitting bags are a great look if the person is svelte and wants to show off her cleavage, but not so great if her arms and bust are too large.

Most women look great with a bag that hits mid-torso because it flatters the waist. Popular Handbag Shapes are as follows:

Duffle bag - It is a tall shoulderbag, often with a wider opening on top.

Field bag - A flap-top shoulderbag with utility-type closure (buckles, snaps, etc).

Clutch bag - A small, handheld bag (frequently used for eveningwear).
