Don’t we all deserve a little luxury every now and again? Of course we do! The ability to achieve perfection, and to embrace the luxury market, is an ideal that appeals to many women; it’s the representation of a job well done, a reward for hard work, or the realization of a dream held since you were very small. In fact, the moment you’re able to purchase that alluring item, whether it’s a coat, a scarf, a jeweled necklace, or a face cream, is likely to be an exhilarating one.
Luxury wear is about so much more than treats though; it’s an appropriate look in any number of situations. From job interviews and formal evenings out, to a day at a gala or a night spent pampering yourself in front of the television, these items are no longer just for the indulgence of the rich and famous.
Luxury fashion tips for women
Fall is a fantastic time to embrace luxury; the season is dappled with numerous textures that embrace the changing weather, and plenty of sparkle to welcome the approaching party season. Once a countdown to winter, and to Christmas, autumn now dazzles in its own right. In addition, the arrival of fall is a wonderful excuse to treat and comfort yourself now that the long and carefree days of summer are over. As we hurtle into the most sensory time of year, it’s time to explore the high street and the world of online retail to see what’s on offer. The luxury market is expansive, and yet more accessible than ever before.
The latest trends for 2016/17
Fall/winter 2016/2017 is all about luxury, with catwalks featuring rich textures, bold colors, and styles that truly lend themselves to extravagance. Faux fur wraps, soft crushed velvet, metallic sparkles, and pinstripe are all going to be huge this season, while longer sleeves, indulgent knitwear, and the return of the cape are set to make an impact on wardrobes across the land. The key to luxury is to choose a signature item that will see you through; perhaps that fluffy cape or a pair of statement shoes? Footwear adorned with patterns; shoes created in the season’s colors of red, gray, navy, pink, or yellow; or heels embellished with gems are a fantastic way to brighten any outfit.
Luxury looks on a budget
Achieving the luxurious look needn’t mean bankrupting yourself, however nice it is to splash the cash sometimes. Whether you’ve chosen a signature item of jewelry to accentuate your outfit, decided to wear your hair a little differently at an event or interview, or have chosen a few items of makeup that truly pop, the luxury look is one that can be cleverly worked into your daily routine – and without costing the Earth. The high street is wise to luxury these days, and everywhere you turn is an item that represents that market. There are a few simple tricks you can employ to make the most of your clothes; taking care of items and keeping them washed and pressed, using a lint roller to regularly de-fluff that expensive-looking black sweater, investing in accessories, and always ensuring that your clothes fit, and complement, your figure will keep you looking grand regardless of the label you’re wearing today.
Diamonds are a girl’s best friends
Diamonds are the very epitome of luxury; the ability to drip with such jewels is one we can all aspire to. These days, that market is seen as increasingly sophisticated and luxurious thanks to leading retailers such as Winsome Diamonds and Jewelry (WDJ). While the diamond was once seen as a major status symbol, it is now the cornerstone of luxurious fashion, owned and adored by fashionistas across the land. Indeed, thanks to songstress Beyoncé, the diamond has become a symbol of power and femininity, and a reward for simply being us. In companies such as WDJ, women – and those who treat them – have a means to access such beautiful items without the fear of being sold imitation jewelry, and with the reassurance that we have the best diamond that money can buy. Described as the “Jeweler’s Jeweler” by Chairman Jatin Mehta of WDJ, this is one industry leader passionately pursuing its mission. With so many ways to wear a diamond, how will you make the most of yours?
Bag it up
Handbags have always been seen as a truly luxury accessory; wherever you turn, celebrities are using their handbags as so much more than a useful means to carry their belongings from A to B – they are a status symbol, and the right handbag is your ticket to that luxury lifestyle you’re craving. This season, look out for handbags embellished with jewels and chunky statement pieces, those that can be worn across the body, handheld backpacks, and the timeless boxy handbag, as well as those made from faux fur or animal print. Remember that one bag is never enough; perhaps the real benchmark of luxury is how many handbags you own, and love.
There you have it; just a handful of the ways in which you can pamper yourself, or treat those you love to luxury they deserve. What will you buy next?
