CHANEL SIGNATURE PARIS-HAMBURG CLASP CLUTCH

Other Brands

Chanel-Signature-Clasp-Clutch

We usually do not focus on clutches, but when we do write about one, you can bet it’s a good thing.

Like the Chanel Signature Clasp Clutch from the Pre-Fall 2018 Collection. And even though our heart still beats for the timeless Kiss-Lock Clutch, but we wouldn’t say no to this gorgeous piece right?

The Signature Clasp Clutch is designed in different styles, but to keep things safe and classy, go with the black diamond quilting.

The Design

Chanel-Signature-Clasp-Clutch-5

Crafted with Diamond Quilting in Aged Calfskin, just like touching the Reissue 2.55 Bag. The leather looks like it’s been worn (and cracked), which is why the leather is called ‘aged’. It does feel incredible and the calfskin makes sure that we won’t need to baby the bag all the time.

The diamond quilting is not only to make the bag feels luxurious, but it’s an instant brand recognition as well. Just by looking at the leather, we can already feel that it’s made by Chanel.

The long shape is perfectly built to hold with one hand. You can use this clutch as a long wallet as well (if it fits inside your handbag). If so, then it’s a two-in-one bag right?

But what’s unique is the newest gold colored clasp on the front flap. And while the leather makes us feel classic, it’s balanced by the latest gold clasp with the house’s signature engraved. The clasp feels contemporary, especially because of the font that’s used to write the CHANEL logo.

Even the simplest hairstyles with braids make it possible to create an interesting image that does not require too much time and expensive accessories. A correctly selected braid will help underline the shape of your face, as well as disguise some shortcomings. Braids are suitable for any situation – for sports, festive events, and as an everyday option.

In any weather, this hairstyle will retain an attractive appearance. Braiding is a wonderful solution for everyday use. In the hot weather, a woman can remove long hair with the help of intricate braiding. You can get the braid undone at any time. Contrary to the common opinion, braids do not harm long hair and also protect it from ultraviolet radiation, windy weather, and other adverse environmental effects. However, braiding can cause some inconvenience, especially if there is a habit of wearing hair loose.

For braid hairstyles, there are almost no restrictions, except hair length. Braiding is quite difficult to do with a short haircut. Owners of long and medium hair are able to implement a large variety of braids for curly, soft, smooth or hard hair. After all, the goddess braids styles are able to emphasize the femininity and beauty. Nevertheless, to master even an ordinary braid yourself, you will need a little practice and skills. Here are four braids hairstyles for practical styling on the everyday basis at home.

SIMPLE BRAIDS

To make it, gather hair after combing, and then divide it into three equal strands. The right and left strands should be taken with the right and left hands respectively. Move the right strand over the middle one and take it with the fingers of the left hand, but do not connect it with the left strand. With the free right hand, take the middle strand and tighten it so that the middle and left strands change places. Pull the remaining right strand over the middle strand and tighten it. Keep plaiting, alternating the right and left strands with the middle strand as long as the length of the hair allows it. The end of the braid can be fixed with a ribbon or a decorative rubber band.

FRENCH CLASSIC BRAIDS

First, comb the hair back. If hair is difficult and stiff, try making the hairdo when hair is a bit wet or use special styling products. Mousse, gel and hair wax will make hair softer and supple. Divide hair into three equal thick strands. Make the usual three-strand braid, gradually adding loose hanging hair from both sides. When the neckline is reached, continue making a simple braid. If desired, you can immediately fix the braid with an elastic band or leave the hair getting loose. That is, the French braid is similar to a simple braid, but it has one feature. Plaiting goes from the upper line of hair growth with the thin strands and you gradually add more hair from the top and temples.

FISHTAIL BRAIDS

It is also known as a herringbone braid. The difference from previous braids is that you will need only two strands. For that, gather your combed hair into a low and back ponytail and make two equal strands. Take one small strand and put it crosswise on the opposite one. In this way, the right strand goes to the left, and then, the left one goes to the right. Repeat it this way until your hair runs out. The main advantage of the fishtail braid is its diversity. There are many variations of such an interesting plaiting that will allow you to diversify your image. For instance, you can make two pigtails and then braid them together. The way of braiding is always the same.

MOHAWK GODDESS BRAIDS

This hairstyle is also known as Dutch braid. To make a Mohawk braid, brush first your hair back. Gather two hair strands directly behind the front part of your head. Then, take a chunk of hair in the upper part of your forehead. Begin to make the braid as close as possible to the forehead, twisting the outer strands together. Continue braiding down the top of your head. Fix the end of your braid and secure it with hairspray if needed. Following the up-to-day fashion, the sides of the head can be shaved to really look like a Mohawk woman. There are also many variants of this hairstyle to try on.

When the braid is not perfect at first, do not worry. With a little practice and proper care of your hair, you will surely be able to create cute goddess braids hairstyles in a couple of minutes. Even with an average hair length, you can use all kinds of braiding, from simple to the most complex. Some skills in making different braids will enable you to create a new interesting image each day.

The Saddle Bag is making a big comeback! It was first-released in the early 2000s with iconic logo’s. But now meet the renewed Dior Saddle Bag from the Fall Winter 2018 Collection. Is there ever a bag like this in the space of fashion? Nope!

The Design

Dior-Mini-Saddle-Bag-8

Well first, it’s made from calf leather. Calfskin is both luxurious and durable, so that’s a good start. But there are more things that you will love.

Dior-Mini-Saddle-Bag

The Flap of the Saddle Bag mirrors the seat, the Body of the Saddle Bag mirrors the lower part and the Leather Straps of the Saddle Bag mirrors the Buckle Strap

The Saddle Bag is constructed with the same shape as the ‘Horse Saddle’. Just noticed, the wave and curved flap, the design is quite clever huh? The flap feels like the spot where you would sit if it were the real Horse Saddle. Then two tassels drops from the inside of the flap, with one tassel holding the ‘D’ for Dior charm. These tassels are not only for decoration purposes, but they mirrors the buckle straps on the Horse Saddles.

And oh, we’re not done yet.

Dior-Mini-Saddle-Bag-11

The bag comes with a short handle strap as well as a removable strap for cross body carry. The handle is quite chic because the sides are connected with a unique signature gold hardware. What do you think the CD stands for? Christian Dior.

For the ladies that love horses, here’s a chance to tell the world about your personality and interest while maintaining fashionable at all times. Dior got your back!

The Interior

Dior-Mini-Saddle-Bag-6

The flap of the bag can be easily opened. Inside there is one main compartment including a zip pocket. The interior space might be a bit smaller than the regular medium-sized handbags. It’s due to its shape where the left side is bigger than the right side.

TIPS ON HOW TO DRESS SMART CASUAL FOR MEN AND WOMEN

Fashion

Smart casual is a word thrown around a lot in the world of fashion. It is always perceived as something you can comfortably wear to work, but still look gorgeous and stylish after hours.  With its prejudice in contemporary days and age, even some of the fashion gurus can puzzle over the throwaway term. The most straightforward definition of smart casual is a neat, conventional and informal style that is mostly worn to conform to a specific dress code.

Today, fashion trends have shown that getting smart-casual right will set you free from the chains of the traditional full oversized suit that makes an individual look out of place. This fashion style is currently associated with weekends mostly Fridays for white collar jobs and people in the business. You will find men wearing a pair of jeans and T-shirts at work and allowed to get away with it comfortably. However, it is a different thing when you get to dress down, for example heading to work on Monday with a T-shirt, sneakers and a rugged trouser. I am confident your boss will call you for a quick staff meeting!

Women are not left out in this casual smart dress code craze, and they have found their fancy below dresses that can be worn to the office just as they do it at the club on a Friday night.  Such women find it absurd for their men to wear a full suit on Friday evening club party. Chums is a great source for selecting dresses for different occasions.

SMART CASUAL FOR MEN; HOW TO DRESS DOWN IN STYLE

Men can find their perfect balance for the lively casual style no matter the occasion.

TROUSERS

For smart casual, what you wear at the bottom will be different according to what is on top. You can wear a pair of jeans for any occasion; a wedding party, a date or an evening hang-out with friends at the bar. They should be perfect if they are dark, rip free and well –fitting.

T-SHIRT

Make sure you choose a well-fitting t-shirt and avoids the baggy type because it will look unkempt and awkward. Depending on the color of your trousers, a bright color will also be perfect. Besides, a plain crew neck t-shirt will look great, and you may choose a neutral color like white or black to ensure it`s clean and smart.

JACKET

A blazer is perfect for a smart casual style, but there is a significant difference between a casual and official blazer. A casual blazer is specially made for a casual look, while a formal blazer is obtained from a full suit. For a blazer, choose one with minimal and clean lines to avoid being too casual. If you go for a tailored one, match it with slim fit jeans and avoid anything that is too baggy or tight. For a perfect match, ensure that your denim is darker than your blazer.

THE SHOES

Just like women, the boots are the most significant part of the outfit. To get a casual smart look, opt for a pair of leather boots that has a rounded toe or just simple canvas shoes. For a refined, its casual look, make sure to clean and brush your shoes, iron your shirt and check if your jacket has a pocket square. It will surely leave a long lasting impression.

SMART CASUAL FOR WOMEN

 

JEANS AND TOP

Jeans and a top is the most accepted casual outfit for women to wear to any occasion. However, there are some points to consider when choosing the perfect jeans. For an event, choose a pair of jeans that are clean and crispy. Depending on how you will style your jeans and top, you can achieve a dressy casual or casual look. For a smart casual look, elevate your attire with fashionable accessories.

A SKIRT AND TOP

Another perfect choice of smart casual look is a skirt and a top. You can wear this to the office or dress in casual occasions. To stand out with this outfit, choose to combine a pink sleeveless top and a green pencil skirt. Since green is a versatile shade to use in an outfit, you can still wear it with a solid top color. Playing with colors is the most convenient way to transform your casual look to be high quality.

A SMART CASUAL DRESS

A dress is perfect to achieve to get that smart casual look for any event. It is common for most people because it is easy and feels fail-safe. This attire can be dressed up and down, and most women feel more confident when they wear one. For a casual wedding, take a printed dress and add some elements to it. You can finish this great outfit with a pair of heels from your favorite fashion designer.

A SWEATER AND PANTS

The most convenient way to take an evening out with a casual smart look is finding a novelty sweater and with a pair of tailored pants. You can choose a mint sweater that contains little lace details around the shoulders and style it with a Boden pair of navy pants. Navy and mint is a great color combination. Finish your smart look outfit with a pair of peach flats, coral handbag and a necklace that contains all the three colors of your outfit.

For dinner invitation, nail the great look by mixing classic items like a pair of black pants with off the shoulder top. For casual wedding attire, choose a chic dress and pair it up with low heels and casual accessories. The right accessories are always ideal for casual outfits. For a good bag, opt for that fits your complex yet laidback ensemble.
