Shoes and socks in Fall 2010

by: PaulaC   Keywords: socks, shoes, fashion, fall, 2010

Wearing ankle socks under your favourite pair of heels is no longer a faux pas. If you're skeptical it's time to start looking on the bright side - socks are cheap, won't take up lots of space in your wardrobe, and are wholly practical. And while ankle socks with sandals may be a big trend currently, we're here to tell you they'll also be perfect for indulging in Fall 2010 fashion trends.

Concerned that ankle socks don't afford you the most amount of warmth? Don't worry - they don't necessitate bare legs. In 2010 you can wear your socks on top of stockings or tights to create an interesting layered look.

Having socks bunched up at the ankles can appear to shorten one's legs. It'll come as no surprise to you that this looks best on longer legs and those with defined ankles.

There are, of course, ways around that conundrum for those not blessed with models' legs: try mid-calf versions, finer fabrics that don't bunch too much, or very low-sitting ankle socks that just show a peep above your shoes.

Clothing for tall women

It is no longer difficult to get tall women’s clothing. In fact, there are a number of online stores that sell  clothing for tall women.  Whether its evening dresses, casual wear, swimwear, innerwear, accessories and shoes; these clothes are readily and easily available. It is important to check out the sizes before actually buying them. The correct way of knowing the right size is to measure the bust, the waist and the hips.

If you are not satisfied with the products that you have shopped for, then you can return them. But remember to return within a stipulated period of time. The shipping and the packing charges are extra. Choose a safe gateway and know the forex rates.
When paying online through the credit card, ensure that it is a secured website or else your card information may be stolen. Currency rates are always fluctuating and if you are paying in currency different from your own, know that there may be changes in the prices owing to the forex rates. Prices would be inclusive of VAT or sales tax.

Trends 2010: The garden as an extension of the living room

The better the weather the more homeowners are yearning for an al fresco life. If they had been happy with a simple seating arrangement in the past, now the focus has been clearly shifted to high-class balcony and patio furniture. In response to this new requirement, furniture manufacturers are creating high-quality garden furniture from the latest high-tech materials.

At the same time, the ecological awareness of consumers continues to be on the increase; the target group of LOHAS (Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability) is constantly growing. The main trend is towards garden furniture from authentic materials in understated natural shades such as Cappuccino und Mocha. Bright colours are a wonderful choice for spreading a summerly atmosphere and can easily be combined. Apart from purple, red and green, it is in particular a fiery orange, which is very popular for chairs, cushions and accessories

In addition, tailor-made and distinctive furniture systems are very much in demand. Many consumers are no longer satisfied with “furniture off the shelf”; they favour models that reflect their own personality. Individuality, for example, is provided by modules, which can be designed as a right or left angled sofa or corner couch. Another alternative are individual linkable elements that can be arranged both vertically and horizontally.
