Question: I want to buy a new pair of jeans and I need your help.  I love skinny jeans, are they still trendy?  Do you think they flatter my body shape, the pear?  And if not, what are the best jean styles for my body type?  Thanks,   H.M., 22


Answer: Thanks for your Q.  Boy, there is a lot of ground to cover on this extremely important question!  We’ll go in order and in points, but there is something we’d like to say first.

 

IMPORTANT NOTE: Everybody shape has its appeal.  There is no perfect body and not everyone has the same taste.  So no matter what your shape, be confident and wear appropriate clothing to flatter your shape, and trust us, you’ll look beautiful.

Now back to your questions…

1.  Skinny jeans have become one of the basic jean cuts, in my opinion, like the boot-cut and the straight leg etc.

2.  When dressing think of proportions.  Skinny’s can be worn by most body shapes, if worn correctly. If you have wide hips and narrow shoulders, the pear shape, make sure you accentuate the top part of your body.

3.  A good pair of boot-cut jeans are the most flattering for all body shapes, followed by the straight-leg and skinny’s.  Stay away from boyfriend jeans!

Ramadan is here and during the holy month we tend to dress more conservatively. Conservative dressing doesn’t equal no longer looking stylish.  Take this as an opportunity to bring out the long and loose items in your wardrobe and change up your style.  Isn’t it always fun to play around and test new styles? For those looking for new Ramadan appropriate items around Cairo, below are some ideas.  Click on pictures for a larger view.

Accessories are an essential part of an outfit and they are becoming more and more so every day.  With many designers and brands opting for the more simple silhouettes and plain palettes these past few seasons, due to the lackluster global economy, accessories are proving to be vital.  You can change the look of an outfit from day to night by simply changing your accessories.  It creates versatility and personality.  You can define your style with your accessories.  Rocker chicks like studded cuffs and chokers, girly girls opt for flowers and pearls and some, like me, like to change it up. I wanted to introduce you to 2 really cool accessories stores in City Stars, in addition to an awesome place to find VINTAGE SHADES!


I am now officially obsessed with UTERQÜE, a Spanish brand from the same company behind Zara.  It opened in City Stars Phase 2, across from Boss and Longchamp above Karen Millen.  The store carries so many awesome accessories from shoes and bags to scarves, earnings, necklaces and rings.  You will definitely find statement pieces to spice up your outfit.  Below are pictures of their Spring/Summer Lookbook, creatively shot taking my fixation even further.  Not all items are in store though but trust me, it is worth a visit!  You’ll become just as obsessed as I am.
