Due to the immense popularity of 1970’s fashion again, A-line dresses and skirts are becoming quite famous once more. Being sported left and right, in different cloths, textures, and finishes, every one is loving this silhouette. And why shouldn’t it be loved? It’s flattering, classy, and gives just the right amount of ‘high-fashion’ without being too over-the-top!


While trends do come and go, we have a feeling that this specific one will be staying for quite some time. So if you want to rock some A-line pieces too, check out this week’s top OOTDs for a little bit of chic A-line inspiration!

This rose-printed A-line dress from Clozette Ambassador MonicaTrina surely (but innocently) commands attention! The white polka dots on the black base, topped off with clusters of rose prints, are the look’s clothing and accessories in one! So to avoid taking attention off the dress, she sported a pair of nude sandals and a simple watch for an elegant finish!

Lexiepuzon

For this look, Clozette Ambassador Lexiepuzon beautifully combined two trends to make a classic look. Her mustard yellow off-the-shoulder top perfectly meshed with her preppy A-line skirt for a fresh, night time-appropriate ensemble!


missCHI

If you want to rock a casual A-line silhouette, then take inspiration from Clozetter missCHI’s denim and high-collar combination! The maroon shade of her top, paired with a denim button down skirt gives a good throwback to the 1970’s, while her fedora adds a modern touch to the whole outfit.

Mini skirts are just the best, no? They’re fun, versatile, and ever since debuting in the 1960’s, they’ve never gone out of style! Star Clozetter rhygnb’s A-line ensemble adds a touch of a hippie vibe with the off-the-shoulder top’s paisley print and fringed purse, while her black skirt and choker tie everything together for a high fashion mixture of textures and decades.


cforcassan

Elegant, easy to put together, and appropriate for the day and the night, these are the markings of a perfect outfit. And Clozette Ambassador cforcassan achieves that “perfect” look by matching a maroon halter top with a caramel-coloured A-line skirt! While the center of the outfit is gorgeous, the accessories ‘make’ the ensemble by giving pops of gold and nude, two timeless shades that look great on everybody!

It’s a new year, a new day, and let’s start it by decluttering! No one likes throwing things away, but the feeling of relief washes over eventually. No more unnecessary things taking up space in your closet, storage, and vanity; and no more junk!

You may have said that you would use these things one day, but trust us, if you’re not using it now, you’re never going to. So if you want to purge and cleanse your home, keep reading below for the things you should be throwing out this new year!

--------------------------


Expired Makeup

We shouldn’t even have to justify why you should throw out expired makeup, right? Not only can they cause infections, but the bacteria in them might even lead you to break out! So throw out all the makeup you have that are way past their expiration date, and you’ll feel glad that you now have extra space to buy even more makeup!

Rusty Jewellery

We love accessories, and because we don’t want to waste money, we buy the costume ones. You know, the relatively cheap pieces that won’t really cause you and your wallet some pain. Too bad they dont’ last forever, though! Costume jewellery generally rust and break apart after a few months or a year, and if you have any old ones lying around, it’s time to throw them away. Don’t start your year with some old, gunky accessories, and instead, invest in some pieces that will last you for years and years!


Clothes You Don’t Wear

Shopping may be therapeutic and exhilarating, but it can often lead to “over-shopping” — where you buy a ton of stuff but you end up not using them. So seriously go into your closet and evaluate each item of clothing that you own. Separate them into two categories, one that you constantly wear, and one that you haven’t worn at all. Give away or resell or throw out the latter category, because if you’re not wearing it now, you’re never going to!


Old Underwear

Underwear, especially the ones made of good quality material, can last for years. But the regular cotton ones should be disposed of regularly, surprisingly sooner rather than later. Signs that you’re underwear is ready to be thrown out are if you’re bra’s underwire is starting to stick out, or the band has become loose. While if your bikini panties are beginning to look like granny underwear, then you know it’s time.


Broken Shoes

When your shoe breaks, of course you should have it fixed! But when it’s broken three or more times, it’s time for it to meet its maker. There’s nothing wrong with repairing old shoes, it’s just that if they’re breaking more than being worn, it’s a sign that you should already look to buy a new pair. So for this new year, chuck away all your heels, flats, and sneakers whose materials are peeling and separating!


Unused and Old Electronics

Does anyone really like hanging on to old cellphones, laptops, chargers, and more? Unless you’re planning on building your own museum on the history of electronics, we suggest throwing out (or better yet, selling) those old, unused gadgets. They're too bulky and are literally a waste of space.
