Many Ways To Wear A LBD

Don't us girliees just love little black dresses but just dress them up in the same old boring way? Same jewellery, hairstyle, handbag and shoes. Well listen close because here are 5 ways to dress up a plain LBD.

Bohemian:denim jacket, lots of bangles or friendship bracelets and some red gladiator heels.

Preppy: black cardigan , mary-jane heels, and a black belt that cinches in the waist.

Edgy: black leather jacket, black lace-up's, small hoop earrings and red lips

Casual: chunky knitted cardigan, embellished flats, loose wavy haircut and NO MAKE-UP ... sorry girls!

Evening: black court heels, an oversized clutch, huge earrings, a silver cuff and lots of make-up.

THEY'RE BACK ... and better than ever!

Friendship Bracelets: I'm not expecting you to make them yourself but its supposed to look like you could have. Miley Cyrus's woven bracelets tick off the club kid look, but you can also go for coloured stones for hippy glam or chakra-style beads.

'70s Floppy Hats: A large floppy brim is essential for this look. Most are made from felt and I'm loving the rich stones and earthy details like feathers and velvet ribbons. Your passport to bohemian glamour.

Heirloom Brooches: These should look antique and uber-expensive - gemstones and classic shapes help. Pin one on your winter coat, a posh going-out frock or even a velvet ribbon hairband!

Party Plumes: If you're going for coloured feathers, keep everything else simple and stick to one feathered accessory at a time

The Hot New Trend: SIDE-SWEPT WAVES!

Us girliees love to have luscious hair so here is how to have side-swept waves in under 30 mins.

STEP 1 : Working in 2in sections from the top of the head downwards, spritz with hairspray then wind hair around large tongs. Hold for a few seconds, slip the tongs out and pin the curl in place.

STEP 2 :Once your hair has cooled, remove pins in sections starting at the bottom. Gently brush to relax curls into soft waves ( at this part my hair always goes frizzy! dont panic just put some protector spray before you brush ... it works! )

STEP 3 :Part hair on one side and comb over on the top and all the way around the back. Fasten securely down the back of the head with kirby grips and finish with another spritz of hairspray.

The Hot New Trend: NUDE GLOSS!

Throughout fashion month, I saw nude lips grace many lips. Models stepped out on the Marni, Prada, Dolce and Gabbana and Christopher Kane catwalks with there barely there lips. However, it's not just the models that are in on the trends - our favourite celebs are too! Jessica Alba, Cheryl Cole and Miley Cyrus were just three of the celebs who were spotted on the red carpet this week, with their natural shade. Nude lips look great with a flawless face and smoky eyes as it's best to keep one dramatic make-up feature at on time. However if youre feeling brave and want to recreate the looks of the spring/summer shows then stick to minimal make up and avoid blusher. Head to MAC and snap up their natural looking lipsticks if you want to get involved in the trend!
