5. Bright Fabric

Christmas is not always red and white. And black is not the only sexy color. Bright colors are eye-catching and can make you shine onstage or at the dance floor. Go for neon! Contrasting hues are also perfect attention-grabber!

Fashionable Underwear

Who says being fashionable is only shown through outer garments? Well, believe it or not, fashionable undergarments are also popular!

Men and women have different preferences when it comes to underwear. While women love frills and laces, men go for plain and simple designs. Women also pay much more attention to the details of their clothing. For example, they will rather go for double strapped and lacy bras than the traditional pale-colour brassiere. They are also easily attracted to laces, buttons, ribbons and other embellishments. Many women also love collecting underwear of different styles and colours just for variety.

Fashionably sexy!

When women dress up, they always consider their underwear. Sometimes choices are affected by mood and situation. If a woman is on a date, she would rather go for sexy lingerie but when hitting the beach, expect a showy swimwear instead. Then during the usual girls night out, women will prefer to wear something fashionable yet comfortable under their clothes. What others may not see, they certainly feel. So expect girls to go for soft and body-hugging outfits.

When choosing underwear, the designs alone will not be enough. You must consider the fabric and size. Some designs may be attractive but the itch it will cause you may not be worth it. Remember that your underwear has first contact with your skin so it is better to invest in cotton. Polyamide and satin are also ideal.

If you feel like going for prints, dots, or abstracts, just go with the flow. If you’re feeling naughty and would like to try something new, just go ahead and feel the excitement!

Being stylish and fashionable is easy to achieve as long as you stick to this rules:

1. Learn how to blend.

2. Make a statement.

3. Know when to mellow down.
When you have eye-grabbing accessory, complement is with understated items. Avoid fashion conflict among your clothes and accessories.

4. Mix and match.
Be creative! Don’t get overdressed by having exaggerated earrings and bulky necklace. Try matching your frilly skirt with a classic shirt.

5. Go monochrome.
Monochromatic get up is in! Combine shares and tones that belong to one pallete from head to toe. You may go for neutrals and earth colors, too.

6. Experiment a bit and trust your instinct.
Have a touch of fashion by pairing something edgy with something feminine. A leather vest, floral dress and neon wedges will score you full points.
