What To Wear: Short Hair Edition

What To Wear: Short Hair Edition

How’s the weather treating you lately?

Truly it has been raining here, there for days and most of us thought that summer may just be officially over now. That’s good bye tan lines, see you after 6 months! But.. doncha know that there are ladies who prefer sporting summer do all year round? You bet! And we’re definitely talking about plus size ladies here, who bravely made a choice to be more confident and carefree with a chopped mane. I just recently joined this movement, so without further ado – here are 4 looks from 4 ultra hair stylish women and their take on short hair.

I look better with short hair. It has more attitude. I feel like short hair gives me more of a chance to express my style, how I think and who I really am. – “Courageous” I have worn my hair long for ages then decided to chop it off.  To me, that was one of the bravest things I’ve done in my life because most women I know don’t have the guts to actually go through with the big cut. And… I am much happier dealing with short hair. That is all. 🙂

I like my hair short, I can style it whatever I want and it depends on the mood. I want to rock, sweet , punk hairstyle all I can do with a short hair. Confidence is the only way to wear short hair not all call pull it off. Photo Credit : Erzullie

I love my short hair out of all the hairstyles I’ve tried. It makes me feel free and most like myself whenever I cut my hair short. Plus, as Coco Chanel puts it, “A woman who cuts her hair is about to change her life.” I think that’s true in my case. 🙂

Berna Cuevas, plus-size designer

Short hair was never new to me. When I was a student I always have this kind of cut or even shorter. 🙂 For me it’s just easier to manage, but when I graduated I made a promise to try having a long hair. I was happy then I tried a lot of styling but I think I just miss my old me but modernized by adding color and a bit of bangs. 😉 So this year I have changed it 😉 even happier having this hair cut.

What To Wear: Floral Edition

What To Wear: Floral Edition

If there is one thing that makes 2013 more fun it’s because of the undying affair with floral prints (other than B&W of course) that bloomed in full swing this year. In dresses, skirts, bags, rompers and imagine pant suits? They’re just everywhere! We’ll we’re not here to complain, we have our fair share of this garden party too. I for one, wore and own lots of these that sometimes my hubby would think he’s with a walking flower vase. Oh isn’t it the most charming thing?! 🙂

So here at Pinay Curvies we’ve rounded up four looks, to give you ideas on how to corporate the floral trend.

The Dark Blazer: What I love with floral blazer is that you don’t basically need to accessorize more in the neck area because of the boldness of the print. Also the fact that it is easy to slip from a very hip corporate attire (pair it with sleek black pants and pumps) to a more relaxed chic (pair it with denim shorts and a tee). Those are easy two looks in one piece.

The Vintage Shorts: For beach bums, outdoor aficionados – wearing shorts is the best thing on earth! And wearing it in floral pattern is the coolest. Just pick a lighter shade for a more classic vintage mood and something in neutral shade on top to balance everything out.

The Cropped Top : So if you want a top other than Mayor Lito Atienza’s classic floral look, two points to remember 1. Pick a floral pattern that blends well with other patterns (like this horizontal line) and color and 2. Go  for a semi-cropped top for that edgy vibe and pair them up with a colored bottoms, then the print will surely stand out.

The Off-shoulder Dress: Lastly for ladies night out goers, choose a floral pattern that is catchy, loud but lovely! Like these mixtures of dandelion and stargazer prints on an off-shoulder dress – fun, sexy and comfortable. Wear it with a nice pair of flat sandals and you’re good to go. Isn’t that easy?

And if you are on the heavy-side,  chances are so slim to find that elusive “perfect chemistry”. To answer all this, we have rounded up 4 looks that are so easy pull for girls with curves.
