Dress for Every body type

bottom heavy figure
The easiest way to balance a bottom-heavy figure is to choose a dress that skims over the lower half of the body. Fuller skirts, disguise heavy hips, while showing off the waist. A fitted halter or strapless silhouette -- which accents a trim upper body -- is very flattering for bottom-heavy figures. One of the classic recommendations for the bottom-heavy figure is the full skirt. It's still a great option, especially for dresses. How to make the full skirt work:

  • Go for a fit and flare silhouette. Draw attention to the waist with a belt, gathers, band or other feature. The skirt should flare out from the fitted waist.
  • Take the fit and flare silhouette one step further by opting for a strapless dress. You'll get the benefit of showing off your shoulders, while concealing your hips. Also, the strong line of bare shoulders helps balance a wider bottom half.
You can wear a fitted suit, even with a slim skirt, if you are bottom heavy. Just remember:

  • Keep the line long by using all one color with slim-cut pieces. It elongates and slims the figure.
  • Choose fitted jackets that end well above your widest point.
  • Wear a top or jacket with structured shoulders, puffy sleeves, etc. to balance out your larger bottom half.
  • Rely on a form-fitting, but never tight, skirt in a non-clingy fabric.
You can look great in jeans. The key is to choose leg openings and back pockets to fit your figure. Here's how:
  • Bootcut leg openings are the most flattering jean legs of all. The slight flare balances out wider hips and fuller thighs.
  • Opt for a darker wash jean for the most slimming look.
  • Five-pocket styling looks best, but you'll want to avoid excessive embellishment on the back pockets if the size of your backside bothers you.
  • The longer the jeans, the longer (and thinner) your legs look. Wear bootcut jeans as long as you possibly can without having them bunch up around your legs. If you can stand them, pair jeans with high heels for a super-flattering look.

  • Another way to balance the bottom-heavy figure is to accentuate your top half with prints. Vertical stripes, menswear checks or plaids, florals and polka dots are all great options.
  • Wear a solid pant or skirt and keep jackets short (never let a jacket end right at the widest point of your hips).
If your natural waistline is thick, along with full hips and thighs, one of your best options in dresses is the empire-waist (raised waist) dress.With this silhouette, the focus is shifted to only the top third of your body because the waist falls right below the bustline. This look works best with pear-shaped women who are small-busted.

You don't need a plunging V-neck or tons of cleavage to pull this off. What you do need is added interest -- a sweetheart neckline, a halter, a knotted front -- to draw attention up and towards your face.

As basic as it sounds, the best way to use color to camouflage/highlight figure areas is to use contrasts.The black bottom with white top works like a dream: it brings the eye up to the lightest hue and the top half of the body.
The idea of high-cut legs on your swimsuit may make you uncomfortable, but they are a flattering way to make your legs look miles long. Here are more Do's and Don'ts for swimwear:
  • Don't wear boy shorts. They'll look boxy on you because they accentuate thighs.
  • Do choose swimwear with graphic interest -- vertical stripes, colorblocking -- strategically placed to draw the eye up.
  • Don't wear a teeny-weeny bikini bottom. The less fabric on bottom, the fleshier you'll look from the waist down.
flabby arms

The trick is to keep the sexy element with one of the pretty sleeves that are popular right now like lantern sleeves, puff sleeves, kimono or bracelet sleeves bolero jacket.


The perfect sundress for a smaller frame has lots of style. More flattery: look for a dress with a lot of shape -- here it has a round neckline and princess seaming -- and is scaled just right for your figure. Avoid too-cutesy looks (like puffed sleeves) so you won't look little girlish.
wide shoulders

You don't need to hide your upper body if you have wide shoulders. Instead, look for body-balancing details like the trendy asymmetrical neckline, like this one-shoulder style. Avoid puffy sleeves or voluminous tops paired with slim bottoms that will exaggerate your shoulder width.

thick waist

Disguise a thick waist by either raising, lowering or eliminating the waistline. This bold graphic shift works by skimming the body without defining the waist. A drop-waist dress, which hits somewhere around the hipbones, or empire waist dresses which have a raised waist are other good choices.
full bust

Balance a top-heavy figure by opting for the most flattering necklines for the full bust: the V-neck, square neck or wrap style. Look for fabrics that skim (jersey is good), but aren't clingy or too stiff. Also, avoid ornate necklines, embellished bodices and blouse on styles.

small bust

most clothing actually hangs better on women with smaller busts, but if you want to add more volume up top look for embellishment or fullness on the bust. This empire waist peasant dress features a gathered bodice, (flattering to most body types) and a cap sleeve which gives the illusion of a wider shoulder and more substantial upper body.

too thin

if your body lacks natural curve, add feminine presence with full ness and full prints. you can also add extra details like full sleeves, ruffles and big prints.

men's fashion tips

tall man
do's : Wear heavier cloths and also patterns that are a bit busier, such as windowpanes and plaids, these make you look fuller and less like a toothpick. Accessorize in detail, your breast pocket should always have a handkerchief, and your shirts should have cuff links. A tall thin man's jacket shoulders should extend slightly past his natural shoulder width. Your jacket should always have at least 3 outside pockets, some sartorial experts suggest 4. A tall man's suit pants should ALWAYS be cuffed at least an inch and a half.Your suit coat's outer hip pockets should be even with the bottom button hole or slightly above, to compress the vertical line.

dont's :
Never wear tight-fitting suits, they make you appear even taller and lankier. Avoid suit jackets with thin lapels as well as bulky, built up square shoulders. Don't button your bottom button, this helps avoid the "bean pole" look. Finally, DO NOT wear your suit jacket unbuttoned, ever. You are better off, taking it off altogether. Nothing looks sloppier than that, especially for tall men, there would be so much flapping around and distracting from your face.

the heavy men
Bigger men often look for clothes that give a "slimming effect" or at least help hide the plumpness when dressing for body type.

  • DO'S: Dress in dark, solid or striped, 2-button single breast suits. These are great because they do not draw attention to horizontal lines or a man's bulk. You should look to emphasize height, because it draws away from the emphasis on bulk. Wear suits jackets that are cut generously around your waist. Suit pants should be worn at your natural waist(fastens at the belly button or above), this helps to lengthen the leg line(to look taller) and cover the belly. Ask a tailor about "English" pleats. Also called "forward" pleats, they face inward. These pleats hide bulk well, especially when viewed from the side, the vantage point where the stomach is most noticeable. English pleats also permit the pants legs to fall straight down from the waistband.
  • DONT'S: NEVER, ever, ever wear double-breasted suits. These suits make hefty men look like stuffed sausages and are out of style anyway. Their buttons attract attention to the midsection and EMPHASIZE WIDTH.
shorter men

men of shorter stature often want to wear clothes that accentuate length visually and avoid cutting the torso in half. This is easily done.

Solids and stripes are your friend. Solids should be a staple of the diminutive man's arsenal, because they make you look taller and leaner. Stripes are great because they encourage the eye to view in a up and down pattern, but take note that the stripes on a suit should be no more than 3/4 of an inch and even less for shirts. You look better in suits than in odd jackets and trousers, because the latter cuts you in half visually, causing you to appear shorter than reality. But a suit on the other hand, presents a unified vertical line.
A shorter man's sleeves should ALWAYS show a bit of shirt cuff, a 1/2 inch or so. If the sleeves are too long, it give those of short stature the appearance of a little boy. Look for suits with high shoulder pads, they are a blessing for shorter men, because the elevated shoulder line and collar increase the sense of height more than anything.
Look for suit jackets that are ventless, they also make you look taller and slimmer. Single-breasted suit jackets whose front edges below the waist button flare outward, also lengthen the leg line, this style is called "open quarters" by top tailors.
The diminutive man should always wear his suit pants at the natural waist. This makes your legs seem longer and makes you seem taller.
To avoid looking like you're playing dress-up in dad's clothes, make sure your pants legs are just long enough to touch your shoes. As far as patterns are concerned, select patterns whose vertical(up & down) aspect dominates the horizontal(side to side) aspect, ask your clothier about herringbone patterns.
Jackets with flap less(or "besom") pockets look great on shorter men, because they look so sleek. If you are using a custom tailor, have them set the breast pocket a little higher than normal on the suit coat, and the hip pockets a tad lower, this nuance helps elongate your silhouette. Lastly, with neckwear, solids elongate the best, very discreet stripes and small patterns work nicely.
DONT'S: Don't bother with tweeds and flannels, they are bulky and make a man look wider rather than taller. The same rules applies for plaids because they emphasize horizontal lines, in effect encouraging people's eyes to move up and down. Make it a point not to wear suit jackets that are extra long, because the extra material covers leg length, and makes a man short in stature appear even shorter. The tail of the coat should be long enough to cover the rear and no longer. Also avoid wearing overlong sleeves, it gives the illusion of being swallowed up by your clothing, and may invite a couple chuckles at your expense.
Lastly, the shorter gentleman should not wear double breasted suits. The double set of buttons on these suits make you look wider and the extra flap of cloth in front makes you seem bulkier. To top it all off, the lapels on a double-breasted suit, which come to a point above the bottom of the collar, add an unflattering pair of near-horizontal lines, which in turn makes the shorter man look bad.
muscular men
Chiseled, heavily muscled men want to find suits that accommodate their large upper physique, without making their waist and lower physique appear large as well. This is easy when dressing for your body type.
  • DO'S: Look for unpadded or lightly padded shoulders, others wear padding to have shoulders that look like yours, you don't need them. Adding extra will only be overkill. You have a big chest, so choose suit coats that have a bit of waist suppression(meaning that it comes inward a little bit at the bottom). That way your waist does not look as wide as your large chest. Also when dressing for your body type, try wearing smooth worsteds of solid, striped or some elongating type pattern. Two and-three button, single-breasted jackets are also very helpful.
    Since it may be hard to find a good off-the-rack suit for you, dressing for body type may mean having a suit "made-to-measure." This allows you to order a suit coat that fits you in the chest and shoulders but isn't through the waist and hips; and find pants that fit you in the waist, but whose legs don't remind you of M.C. Hammer pants.
  • DONT'S: Never put all your faith in "athletic cut" suits, if you find some that fit nicely, that is great. But be aware that these suits are NOT cut differently for you, they are simply paired differently, bigger jackets paired with much smaller suit pants. When truly dressing for your body type, "athletic cut" leaves something to be desired. It is absolutely imperative to avoid jackets with narrow lapels and dress shirts with tiny collars, it is a really bad look for a heavily muscled man. And of course, stay away from double-breasted suits.

correct undergarment size

Did you know that over 70% of females are not wearing the correct bra size? In fact, the 70% of females are wearing a bra size too big for them! That must be uncomfortable! Either way, a women should always wear the correct bra size and here is an easy way to accurately determine your bra size. Instruction:

1. Wrap the measuring tape all the way around your chest, right underneath your naked breasts (where your bra band would usually be).

2. Pull the tape as comfortably as you want your bra to be. If the number is odd take that number and add five inches to it for your correct BAND SIZE. (If the total original number is an odd number, round up to next even number. EX: Original band size 31, add 5 for a total band size of 36.)
If the number is even add 4. Ex. Original band size 30 add 4 for the total band size of 34.

3. Next, pull the tape around your actual breast, and across the nipples. Look in the mirror to be sure your tape is perfectly horizontal. That number is your proper bust measurement.

4. For your exact cup size, subtract your band size from your bust measurement and the difference will tell you your cup size.

Less then 1 inch: A
1 inch difference: A
2 inches: B
3 inches: C
4 inches: D

panty size?

Measure both your waist and your hips to find your correct panty size. To find your waist measurement, measure your natural waistline. Find your hip measurement by measuring the fullest part of your hips.

men's undergarments

1. Decide whether you are committed to briefs, boxer briefs or boxers. There are variations, such as bikini briefs that are simply lower-rise but basically fit the same as briefs. Many (maybe even most) men base their grooming and clothing decisions for their entire lives on arbitrary factors, i.e, what your father wore or what your mother bought you when you were a child. You should at some point buy at least one pair of each style you haven't worn so you can make up your own mind. Some people like to wear two or all three styles (including the low-cut briefs), depending on the situation and activity.

2. Select briefs with the same waist size as your trousers. Thus, if you have a 36-inch waist, opt for a 36 brief. The advantage of the brief is increased support, so you should fit it somewhat tightly across the hips and thighs. If this is uncomfortable, you should probably consider wearing boxers. Note: If you have an odd waist size that you are able to fit, you should select the next size up. Briefs only come in even-numbered sizes; thus, a 35-inch waist would take a size 36 brief.

3. Select boxer briefs with a bit more flexibility than briefs. The extra length on the leg creates a completely different feel and fit than briefs. In fact, the fit for boxer briefs is closer to boxers than briefs. But start by sizing the same as your trousers if you have been wearing briefs. If you find the leg too binding, try the next (even) size up. If you have been wearing regular boxers, you should probably try the same size as you wear in boxers.

4. Select regular straight-leg boxers the next size up from your trousers. Thus, a 36-inch waist would call for a 38 boxer. The advantage of the boxer is comfort and freedom, rather than support. Opting for a tighter fit compromises that benefit, so it doesn't make sense. Most people will find that going up a size improves comfort and flexibility of movement.

5. Consider how tightly you prefer to wear your trousers. If you like tight-fitting jeans, you may find that briefs better serve your needs. If you wear hip-hugging low-rise pants the bikini brief may work better. Relatively loose-fitting dress pants are more compatible with boxers, but you can still wear briefs if you prefer the feeling, the enhanced support and the tighter fit.

6. When buying boxers, look at the construction of the front opening or slot. It should provide maximum overlapping of fabric, and the slot should not extend all the way down to the crotch seam. Some brands, will have buttons, which are not very practical, but are still better than the overlong slot found on too many less expensive brands.

7. Look for fullness in the legs and seat. A good boxer will have tapered legs and a shallow seat that fits closer to your buttocks. This is important, because a full seat and wide leg will cause the underwear to ride up into your crotch when you sit, and you will usually feel uncomfortable when you stand. Always having to adjust and pull down your underwear is awkward and often distracting, but you don't have much choice when your boxers are continually jammed up high against your hips and upper buttocks. If the leg is well-tapered but the seat is still too full, they will still ride up, but perhaps not quite as far.

How to treat acne

Acne (acne vulgaris, common acne) is not just a problem for teenagers; it can affect people from ages 10 through 40. It is not unusual for women, in particular, to develop acne in their mid- to late-20s, even if they have not had breakouts in years (or ever). On the positive side, those few individuals who have acne into their 40s may well grow out of it. Acne can appear on the skin as any of the following: congested pores, whiteheads, blackheads, pimples, pustules, cysts (deep pimples, boils). The pus in pustules and cysts is sterile and does not actually contain infectious bacteria. These blemishes occur wherever there are many oil (sebaceous) glands, mainly on the face, chest, and back.

what causes acne:
High natural oil levels in the skin contribute a great deal to acne, by blocking skin pores. Topical treatments applied on the surface of the skin solve this problem by clearing excess dirt and oil and getting rid of bacteria. By taking treatment products, whether they are topical or oral,excess oil levels can be reduced.

Hormones can contribute to acne as well.In adolescence, hormonal changes are constantly taking place causing breakouts. Male hormones are most notorious for causing acne. In adulthood, premenstrual and premenopausal changes can also cause breakouts. This hormonal changes contribute to increased oil levels which causes pore blockages.

Stress has also been seen as a cause of acne in that it causes the body to release hormones and chemicals which can produce toxicities that cause acne. This can be solved by avoiding stressful conditions.

Some certain foods such as chocolate and sugar are believed to cause acne, though this remains a contentious issue. Physicians and nutritionists are better placed to explain to you if it's really a cause.

The different types of acne can each have a different cause. The causes range from one's lifestyle, his environment and skin products one uses. It is important to take good care of your skin and not use products that will increase breakouts. Good understanding of your skin type is therefore essential to be able to know the cause of your acne.

You can do a lot to treat your acne using products available at a drugstore or cosmetic counter that do not require a prescription. However, for tougher cases of acne, you should consult a physician for treatment options.

Are you looking for a simple, natural remedy for adult acne? If so, look no further! There are many great natural ways to treat acne, and this article will cover many of the best. First, here are some benefits of choosing an all-natural remedy for adult acne as opposed to a prescription:

Benefit #1: Natural remedies are typically much cheaper than their prescription-counterparts.

Benefit #2: Natural remedies rarely have harmful, annoying or uncomfortable side effects.

Benefit #3: Natural remedies provide many indirect health benefits when used properly.

Now, let’s get started. The first natural remedy for adult acne you should know about is a very simple one. It’s called Green Tea. It has risen in popularity quite a bit in the last few years, and with good reason! Green Tea has many health benefits, including helping with: high cholesterol, infections, viruses, high blood sugar, headaches, joint discomfort and of course...acne. Green Tea contains an antioxidant known as EGCG that protects cells much better than normal vitamins such as Vitamin C and Vitamin E.

The second natural remedy for adult acne that should be on your list is water. Sounds too simple, but it honestly helps quite a bit to remove the toxins from your body as often as possible. When wastes and sugars build up in your digestive system, Candida, the number one cause of acne bacteria, thrives. By drinking more water, you flush these harmful wastes from your system, thus preventing future breakouts.

The third natural remedy for adult acne is herbal treatments. Many people swear by herbal remedies as effective treatments for most anything, and there isn’t much evidence that suggests otherwise. Common herbal remedies for adult acne include red clover, black cohosh, primrose and wild yarn. Also, Vitamin B5 supplements can reduce the production of Sebum (clogs pores). As a general rule, these herbs should be researched before taking, as some are meant primarily for women with hormonal imbalance, etc. Just do your homework, ask your doctor and be sure that what you’re taking/using is right for you, and you’ll be fine!

The last natural remedy for adult acne one should consider is the "Acid Proof" method. There are many acids found in fruits that help reduce Sebum, eliminate the excess toxins that build up in the body and reduce redness and swelling of blemishes. The best fruits to eat for this purpose are those with red, orange or dark skins, such as apples, grapes and oranges. Also, by rubbing lemon juice on a cotton ball, and placing it on a blemish for 30 seconds to a minute, the lemon’s natural acids can kill bacteria that is clogging the pores, thus reducing redness and swelling, improving the appearance dramatically!

other products:
Now if you want acne skin product there are lots of it that you can buy over the counter some are expensive but others are can afford.. Many of these are beneficial, while others are just plain hoaxes. Whatever acne skin care product one chooses, expecting instant results is very unrealistic. The most effective products take at least a couple of weeks before they begin to work noticeably. If the acne skin care product contains appropriate ingredients, the acne will recede in three months or so. In other words - one should not reply on advertising that promises overnight results. Acne is a moderately serious form of skin inflammation. The affected pilosebaceous units in the skin need to undergo the required changes before the acne can reduce.

Sometimes, a single acne skin care product is not enough to have the desired effect. In such cases, dermatologists may prescribe a combination of products for use in tandem. The aim of treatment is to normalize shedding into the pore to prevent blockage and kill the bacteria that cause the problem. Additionally, the product used must provide anti-inflammatory relief to the skin and manipulate the patient's hormonal balance in the skin.

Acne skin care products can cause severe allergic reactions in patients who are sensitized to their ingredients. These ingredients can have some rather unpleasant side effects and one must weight the benefits of using such products against their potential drawbacks. Patients must not use acne skin care products containing such active ingredients without medical supervision. They can have dangerous interactions with existing medications and may even make the acne worse. A dermatologist must analyze the patient's problem before he can prescribe the correct acne skin care product.

One of the most radical products used in acne treatment are exfoliating agents. These slough off a thin layer of the affected skin. They invariably contain strong chemicals such as salicylic acid and glycolic acid. These chemicals peel off the superficial skin layer, thereby removing dead skin cells that block the underlying pores. They also have an unclogging effect on pores that are already blocked. Many compounds in this genre of acne skin care products are available over the counter, meaning that no doctor's prescription is required to buy them. These products usually contain moisturizing agents to offset the exfoliating compound's dehydrating effects.

Topical creams and gels that kill bacteria are also available. These usually contain benzoyl peroxide. Such acne skin care products are used on the skin twice or thrice a day. One can also buy soaps and face washes that contain benzoyl peroxide. Benzoyl peroxide kills the acne-causing bacteria and has a keratolytic effect, too. This means that it dissolves the keratin that is plugging the skin's pores. Unfortunately, acne skin care products containing this chemical can cause the skin to dry out radically. To prevent this, the concentration of benzoyl peroxide should not exceed 2.5%. The patient should also use a non-comedogenic moisturizer to combat excessive skin dryness.

Topical antibiotics such as erythromycin, clindamycin, doxycycline, minocycline or lymecycline and tetracycline can also have a beneficial bacteria-killing effect in acne. Applying antibiotic creams is sometimes preferable to oral antibiotic treatment, since the patient will not suffer possible side effects by this route. Oral antibiotics can be effective in treating acne but a doctor must monitor their use. There is a danger of adverse reaction with other medicines.

Topical retinoids have the effect of normalizing the skin's follicles and can be very effective when used in acne skin care products. Such retinoids include tretinoin, adapalene and tazarotene. The dermatologist must ensure that the patient does not suffer skin irritation with these. If this occurs, the patient may switch to a milder retinoid called Retinol. This compound occurs in many popular moisturizers and does not cause skin irritation.

acne prevention
Acne prevention often becomes essential during our teenage years. It can cause great distress and embarrassment at an age when young people are very concerned about how they look. Almost no teenager – and many an adult on drugs like lithium – is spared a prolonged period of acne problems. Pubescent girls need to pay greater attention to acne prevention because of the hormonal upsurges associated with the onset of menstruation.

Increased hormonal activity is the root cause of acne occurrence. This in turn causes excess oil production in the skin’s sebaceous glands. It is a sad fact that the areas most affected by acne are those that are almost constantly visible with today’s youthful fashion trends. Most acne prevention and control compounds contain specific compounds to address the problem. The packaging will indicate the presence of these compounds. One of these is benzoyl peroxide (sometimes in combination with the antibiotic erythromycin). The popular Clearasil contains this agent.

Most affected teenagers address acne prevention with manic scrubbing and dieting. They do this because of a mistaken assumption that the problem is related to poor hygiene or improper nutrition. Avoiding fat-laden junk foods like cheeseburgers is definitely a step in the right direction for other health-related reasons. However, it will do little by ways of acne prevention. Skin hygiene is important, and one can prevent acne to a certain extent by increased and regular cleansing. However, one tends to go overboard and resort to using extreme measures like a face wash of strong toothpaste and other harsh compounds. This will only aggravate the problem by encouraging increased compensatory oil production in the skin.

The belief that astringents discourage excess oil secretion is nothing but a myth. Astringents do take care of superficial oils. However, they are of no use in acne prevention because they cause the skin to contract. This clogs pores and causes long-term aggravation for short-term cosmetic benefits. The best course of action is using a mild cleansing agent to wash town the entire face (not just the fabled T zone or only acne-affected areas) and regular shampooing of hair.

Oily hair causes facial oiliness. This is especially true for those who sport chin/shoulder-length hair. Most importantly, picking at or rubbing of acne blemishes is strictly contraindicated. Doing this can lead to permanent scarring and skin discoloration that will require measures like laser treatment to correct later on. Excessive exposure to sunlight is also a definite no-no - especially if one is using a compound like trenitoin, which increases the skin’s photosensitivity. Tanning lamps can cause the same harmful effect. Females affected with acne must rigorously scan the contents of their cosmetics before using them – only those without an oily base and with the tag ‘noncomedogenic’ (non-obstructing to skin pores) on the label should be used. It is also important to avoid sports headgear such as headbands and cycling helmets. Many fashion accessories that cover part of the facial skin can cause constriction or irritation, too.

Fashion is a concept that we are all interested in to some extent. Anyone who watches television, or buys magazines that show people wearing clothing supports fashion. Celebrities are the biggest fashion billboards in media. Commercials and catalog no longer depict what is 'in' style, but rather, whatever celebrities are wearing is what we want to be wearing. We have all seen our favorite celebrities dressed in designer clothing and have said one of two things: (a) What ever possessed him/her to wear that? Or (b) Wow, I love that outfit, I wonder where I can get it? The latter of the two is usually followed by "If I could only afford that!" There are many trends that women are looking to follow this season, and it is very possible to spend thousands of pesos on one outfit, and on a new wardrobe to keep up with these short-lived trends. That outfit that you love, or the style that you crave can be obtainable for a fraction of the cost. There's a lot of way to look fashionable without spending a lot of money..

first is you have to be updated of the latest fashion.. You do not want to go out and spend a fortune on an entire wardrobe full of colors that will be outdated in three months. Instead, buy some key pieces in the season's hottest colors. Your best bet is to stick with a few key articles though, rather then spending too much on an easily outdated wardrobe.

alter clothes, you can buy cheaper clothes at a tiangge or bazzar stores try to alter by cutting and or sewing..

accessorize ... add accessories to your new wardrobe or even clothes that are on your cabinets for a long time.. invest on the latest accessories to make the old clothes more updated and fashionable..

and if you're really on a tight budget go to trift stores, on sale items or best recommendation is an ukay store, in Manila-speak, Ukay means second hand / salvation army clothes that were sequestered from relief goods, bought in bulk and resold real cheap in dinghy retail stores. But technically, Ukay means Hukay/Halukay, which literally means "dig", so that means any sort of real cheap find anywhere else around the world can classify as ukay.
