How to Style a Basic White T-Shirt

Though not quite spring, warm weather is nearly ready to nuzzle back into our lives. To prep ourselves for this sunshiney transition, Pink Slip Fashion will focus on three looks with the infamous and ultimately effortless white tee. Each put-together outfit with this stylish wardrobe essential will leave you soaking up the rays (and compliments).

Opt for a fun print short to dress up a white tee and top it off by choosing a cap toe ballet flat that’s on-trend and practical.

For beach shore shopping, take an off-the-coast approach and keep it light and easy. A chic bow topped hat will do the trick for protecting you from the sun, while a scarf will keep you comfy against budding off-shore breezes.

More of a nighttime gal, and you’ll find the city prepped look right up your alley. Wear a pointed toe animal print pump for extra frisk and a super dressy clutch that highlights a style contrast. To pull it all off, accent a little leg with a cropped pant. 

Hop Into Spring with Chiffon & Company

Shop light and airy chiffon silhouettes for the upcoming spring season. Pink Slip Fashion is a huge fan of gossamer-thin woven tops and nothing says warm-weather chic, like near sheer chiffon.

Make your wardrobe on target by playing with a multitude of cuts, shades, and patterns. Notice-me prints, like a popping polka dot can add an unexpected punch, while pale shades on lightweight silks or polyesters can tone down a work-to-evening ensemble. You’ll float away with quite a few compliments with whatever style you choose.

A hop, skip, and a jump into your favorite chiffon will spring you into the season fashionably.

How to Holiday Style For Your Body Type: Small on Top, Big on Bottom

Pink Slip Fashion believes that every woman should look her best, especially for the holiday season. With an array of cocktail parties and events on the horizon for this season’s cheerful tidings, Pink Slip Fashion has decided to put together some looks for various body types.

Tonight we’re going to focus on silhouettes that cater to women who are smaller on top and bigger on bottom. With help from the ultimate guide to dressing, “Dress Your Best,” by Clinton Kelly and Stacy London, I’ve culminated the above looks.

Here are the basics to avoid any fashion slips:

1) For average height women, choose a halter style with an a-line skirt. Go for a waist with some sparkle to accentuate the bust line. The a-line hem in lightweight chiffon will help camouflage larger on bottom areas.

2) For petite women, Pink Slip Fashion recommends that women choose a strapless option. It emphasizes broad shoulders and your decollete. Add a brooch at the neckline to draw more attention to your bodice.

3) Lastly, for taller women who are large on bottom, go for a higher neckline with jewels or beaded detailing. Preferably a sleeveless style to once again highlight shoulders and arms. Structured seams at the bodice and an a-line, knee length hem will create a proportionate and flattering silhouette.

Top off each look with a pointed, metallic shoe, which will define a long, lean leg line, and a small textured clutch.

How To Holiday Style for Your Body Type: De-Emphasize a Larger Chest

Pink Slip Fashion understands the dilemma of dressing for the holidays. From staying within budget to mastering the appropriate look for the right venue, styling can easily go haywire at the drop of a slip. On top of everything, there’s choosing a design that will leave an impression and is perfectly suited for your body.

That’s why Pink Slip Fashion wanted to give you daily pointers on dressing for your body type. And for the first day, as requested by a reader, I’m showing you looks that will flatter a bustier shape, especially if you’re uncertain of how to navigate that holiday party without drawing the wrong attention. Check out our top 3 key pointers for the perfect fit: 

1) First things first, remember to choose a dress design with wide straps so as to camouflage a supportive bra. You’ll be able to move comfortably the entire evening and not worry about any wardrobe slips

2) Next, go for styles that have a cinched waist silhouette to show off your oh-so-petite frame. This can be accomplished with a knotted detail, bow, surplice neck, or even just a simple belt.

3) Finally, it’s all about the flare hem. It’s easy to look too top-heavy if your hem is fitted. With a slight flare, you can help to create a proportionate body shape.

With these 3 tips from Pink Slip Fashion, you’ll be undeniably chic, while mastering standout style for your body.

Dressing With Breast Cancer: Flatter Your New Shape!

Catching the tail end of Breast Cancer Awareness month, Pink Slip Fashion wants to show women who have undergone a mastectomy how to dress their body’s post-surgery, returning feelings of confidence, femininity and sexiness with trend-forward styles.

Triumphing against unimaginable difficulties that come from fighting a life threatening illness can oftentimes extinguish self-esteem.  Coping with the fact that your body is irreplaceably different becomes a heartbreaking challenge and emotions become especially heightened after looking in the mirror.

As a person with relatives who have suffered from this distressing and time-consuming illness, I know it’s a trial for breast cancer combatants to find a sense of inner peace, sanctity and comfort.  With this post, I hope to bring some encouragement to these fighters’ indescribably different lives by providing a few styling tips to renew self-esteem and welcome back a restored sense of empowerment.

4 Irreversibly Cool Styles that Will Flatter Your New Shape:

1) Lacy Supportive Bra – Lace will complement your sweet and flirty side, helping you feel feminine.

2) Thick Strap Tank Tops – Thick straps will help camouflage your supportive bra while still giving you noteworthy looks. Try tanks with a subtle pattern, bow detail or metallic trim for even more style presence.

3) Tailored Jacket, Vest, or Cardigan – Every fashion maven needs this in her fall wardrobe. Styles with a belt or cinching will highlight the best of your curves, while showing off your thin waistline.

4) Patterns and Ombre Skirts or Dresses – To deflect away from your chest, try a print skirt or dress with patterned bottom. To play up the sophisticated ombre trend, choose designs with saturated hues closer to the hem.
