Prom 2007: Cover Up's

As gorgeous as prom dresses are, a girl still needs some kind of cover up in the event that it becomes too chilly outdoors (or indoors with the a/c and all). During my formals, everyone wore shawls. Sheer gauze-y silvery shawls. Pretty pretty sequinned shawls. Feminine delicate lacey shawls. You name it. But these days, suddenly there seems to be a whole lot more options out there to consider! So here are a few:

The cardigan. There is the effortlessly cool long oversized cardigan look shown here by BCBG that is super trendy. To glam it up a bit for prom, try replacing that tie with a hip belt or a shiny satin bow. And if you are like me and prefer the more feminine and ladylike look after all, try this ultra girly cardigan with the puffy sleeves and bow by Miu Miu!

Then there is the shrug. I must say, I am loving it. Last year I bought a slightly furry black shrug from H&M and its great because it matches everything, it doesn't hide the dress/shirt underneath AND its warm. Its kind of similar to this black shrug here By Malene Birger, see what I mean about not hiding the dress underneath? And for something more dramatic and unique, try this black/white shrug by Moschino Cheap & Chic. It would go perfectly with those simple black strapless dresses I showed before. Talk about adding individuality to an outfit.

Taking inspiration from the Teen Vogue prom spread, there are these gorgeous brocade cropped jackets by Hanii Y and Manoush. I think it adds just the perfect touch of romance and fancy to an outfit. Wow, the more I look at them, the more I really want one of these. . . .
For something a bit more casual, there are these two cropped jackets from Bi La Li (I know, interesting name right?) and Diane von Furstenburg, which because of their relatively classic cropped cut, I think would still look great over a dress. But of course, these last four cover-ups are only appropriate for when you are outdoors.

And the BEST thing about these cover ups? You will most probably be able to wear it again!

Speaking of teen vogue, in this month's issue, they said that pastel skinny jeans were in for the summer.
Any Idea how to wear them?

the most important thing with coverups is to make sure the proportions are right. most dresses look best with shrugs or cropped jackets. anything that hits at the waist will probably look really weird.

they're all so cute...how to choose? Thanks for sharing this...I don't wear tube dresses or dresses with small straps unless I can have a cover-up for it...this helps a lot!

Classic
It seems as though everyone is looking for the next best thing, and too often we ignore the
classics! For instance, most people run to the theaters in order to see the latest action/adventure
flick that has come out, while many ignore the classic older movies that they can find on the small
screen. Sometimes classic is best, and when it comes to finding Chanel handbags online, you can
definitely benefit by taking a peek at some of the classic Chanel handbags.
The Chanel Classic Lambskin Flap in white is the definition of a classic Chanel handbag you can
find online. This imitation Chanel handbag is one of the most popular styles ever created by
Chanel, making the celebrity rounds and being seen on all of the red carpets.It is made with a
quilted lambskin leather that has white trimming around it and has the classic Chanel interlocking
CC’s. With a 10” drop handle, silver hardware, and the knowledge that this imitation Chanel
handbag is made in Italy, you truly can’t go wrong. Remember: classics became classic for a
reason, and when it comes to Chanel handbags online, you can’t do better than the Classic Lambskin
Flap.http://www.ereplicasupplier.com/

Tips for Buying a Replica Coach Handbag
There have been far too many people who have purchased what they thought was a genuine replica Coach

handbag only to get a handbag that is made of cheaper quality than the handbags that you can find in

department store. When it comes to buying replica handbags, there are a few things you should

remember. http://www.luxurysupplier.com.

1. Never buy a replica handbag from someone who is selling their wares on a corner. These people

often have either purchased their bags from an unreputable source or they have stolen the goods.

2. Never buy one when you’re on vacation. Often couples spend more money on vacation than they

would at home, so don’t get caught up doing that.

3. Always make sure that the handbag you purchase comes with a money-back guarantee.

4. Look to the internet for your handbag purchases as you’ll almost always find a bag that is

reputable as well as affordable.

The Coach Mandy Signature Courier in Khaki Gold is a replica Coach bag that would be perfect for a

woman who is looking for a replica Coach bag that is beautiful and strong. This bag is small and

easily affordable, yet made using the same fabrics as the original.http://www.luxurysupplier.com.
