What to Wear- Essential or Trendy Fashion Clothing?

There are many questions about fashion clothing that occupy the minds of all women on this earth- what should I buy for casual and formal wear, what should I wear with skirts and/or jeans, which type of fashion clothing will suit my body type, what are the latest trends and whether to buy seasonal trendy clothes or not, what others will think if I wear a particular dress and many other such types of questions? But the issue is whether we need to think about only the fashion trends or also about the comfort level and other things such as personal preferences about fashion clothing, the types of cloths which suit us or just blindly follow the trends set up by some designers and big companies and brands? For this we need to analyze both the points- our taste, budget, and preference about personal style as well as the fashion norms and how far to follow them!

Essential Fashion Clothing- The Personal Style Statement!

Now what is this essential fashion clothing? Simply explained, it is all types of women's garments that you prefer to wear day in and day out. These may include your formal shirts, tops and blouses, jeans, trousers, skirts, and even evening gowns and other dresses that you wear for formal parties. These define your personal preference because you will not go shopping everyday for essential clothing- you buy these as practical solutions. For example, you will buy many T-shirts, blouse tops, and shirts but will only a handful of jeans, trousers and skirts to wear with them. It is how you mix and match your various clothing items and how you use other accessories that will define your personal style!

Trendy Fashion Clothing- The Ramp Defined Style!

Trendy women fashion clothing is what is displayed on ramps through catwalk by models every season. These cloths are showcased by designers and apparel brands as well as other beauty products companies. They are the one who define the coming trends of the season. There is nothing wrong in it- after all it is their profession! What is important is to make a differentiation between the ramp and everyday fashion clothing. For example, the women's fashion trends- 2011 clearly define the retro and punky fashion as the prevailing norms of this summer and spring season. However, you will definitely not go out and change whole of your wardrobe into such style of clothes. What you can do at the most is to buy some of the clothes inspired by these trends for wearing either as daily casual wear or for special occasion wearing.

Conclusion- How to Decide What to Wear?

Does it mean that we should totally ignore what trends say and go by only our personal preference about our clothes? No, not at all. We do have right to be called trendy fashionable women! So, what can be the right way of deciding what to wear is a little thought about how to complement our personal style with the ongoing trends! For example, for retro style, you can simply sort out your wardrobe to find some of the pieces that have a retro look- the ones which you have discarded years ago. You can even buy a couple of new clothes according to the trends as well as some fashion accessories (bags, footwear, hair accessories etc.) that go with your existing wardrobe. This way, you will not loose your personal style and will remain trendy too!

Adding Fringes to a Shawl

Crochet shawls are wonderful clothing accessories. One can mix and match it with various outfits as each time it will end up looking nothing less than stylish! Adding a beaded fringe to a closed stitch patterned crochet shawl can add that missing dash of glamor to it. Take a look at the step by step procedure under, to know how to add beaded fringe to a crotchet shawl wrap:

Fringe Making Procedure

Step 1
Start with a chain which measures as much as your shawl's length. Generally, the standard size or length of a shawl is around 60 inches. Now, begin with single crochet in the second chain from the hook and in every chain across.

Step 2
In the next step, chain three and turn. Then, twice crochet within the second single crochet and in each and every single crotchet across the row, thereafter. Further, once crochet in every double across the row. Keep repeating the pattern until you get the desired width of the shawl while ending with a single crochet row.

Step 3
Make a slip stitch to fasten off the shawl. Then cut your working yarn and make another tight slip stitch for securing it.

Step 4
Cut 8 inches long yarn lengths as two of these fringe pieces would be needed for every every inch of the width of the shawl. Thus, calculate as to how many fringe pieces you would need and make the calculated number of fringes accordingly. For example if the shawl is 20 inches wide, then one would need 40 pieces of fringes on each side of shawl. That together makes a total of 80 fringe pieces to complete the shawl.

Step 5
Rope one fringe length of yarn into a needle. Make sure that you use appropriate eye blunt needle for for thick yarn and embroidery needle for thin yarn. Now rope two beads onto the yarn and needle. For obvious reasons, the chosen bead should be big enough to accommodate needle as well as the yarn.

Step 6
Thread two beads onto the needle and yarn. The beads you choose must be large enough to accommodate your yarn and needle in this process. Take off the yarn from the needle, making sure that the beads keep stuck on the yarn. Next tie a knot at the end of each yarn and slide down the beads so as to make each one rest against the knot. Repeat the same step for each fringe length.

Step 7
Lastly, fold the fringe length into half to have a loop in the center with the beads and knotted ends dangling down. Use the crochet hook for pulling the loop through the short edge of the shawl, from front to back. Secure the knotted and beaded ends by pulling it through the loop onto the edge of the shawl. Repeat the same for all the fringes.
