So sit down and grab a mirror: it’s time to see whether you are a warm blonde or a cool blonde.

Cool Blonde Hair

Cool blonde hair is characterized by ‘cool’ undertones, such as gray or blue. Examples of cool blonde hair tones include ash blonde, ice blonde and silver blonde.

What about dressing for your hair color for the evening or for an event? Metallics will look incredible with your hair hue, especially silver.

The Best Clothes For Brunette Hair

Brunette hair is known for being rich and full. Despite this, every brunette is different and the colors that suit you depend on a combination of your hair tone and your skin tone. This means that dressing for your hair color is vital.

Warm toned skin has green or yellow undertones, whereas cool toned skin has blue or pink undertones.

Confused? We got you! Check out our guide on how to choose the right color for your skin tone.

Katherine McNamara knows that green is made for red heads!

When you’re a sizzling red head, you know that your vibrant hair is all it takes to make a statement. Therefore, you want to opt for colors that enhance your blazing locks, rather than dull them down.

Green is your number one hue! As a matter of fact, anything from sage to emerald green will look smoking hot on you!

For neutral hues, opt for navy, tan and cinnamon.

Surprisingly, purple and a full spectrum of blue will look incredible on you too.

Avoid orange and yellow like the plague! However, red can look flattering on you, it’s all about finding the right shade. Fair skinned red-heads should opt for bold crimson, whereas tanned reds should go for softer and more demure red hues.

How To Style A Scarf For Your Body Shape

Do you know how to style a scarf for your body shape?

Is that even a thing?

Yep: it actually is!

Nope, I’m not crazy!

Whether you are a perfect pair or beautiful and boyish, when you know how to style a scarf for your body shape, this accessory will be your new BFF.

Today we teach you how to style a scarf for your body type.

What’s My Body Shape?

So you’re probably thinking: ‘what exactly is my body shape?’ Although women come in a stunning array of shapes and sizes, your body type all comes down to your proportions.

Scientists and stylists alike have pin-pointed four main female shapes with certain body proportions. These body shapes are apple, pear, hourglass and rectangle.

Am I A Pear Body Shape?

You ladies are all about that bass! The pear body shape is characterized by a larger bottom half and smaller top half. Pear shaped beauties often have larger hips and thighs, a slim waist, a smaller bust and small shoulders.

Ask yourself the following questions:

  • Am I a smaller size in tops than I am in skirts and trousers?
  • Do I tend to carry my weight around my butt and thighs?
  • Do I have a slim waist?
  • Do I have a large hips to waist ratio?

If the answer to most of these questions is yes, you are a pear shape.

Am I An Apple Body Shape?

Va-Va-Voom! Kate Upton rocks her apple shape.

Much unlike the bootylicious pear shape, the apple shape honey has tatas for days! The apple body shape is typically larger on the waist and bust with slimmer hips and legs.

You know the drill…..

  • Am I a larger size in tops than I am in skirts and trousers?
  • Do I tend to carry my weight around my middle.
  • Is my tummy larger than my hips?

Yes? You are an amiable apple.

Am I An Hour Glass Body Shape?

Marilyn Monroe: eat your heart out! The hot hourglass shape has a large bust and hips and a slim waist.

Ask yourself:

  • Do I wear the same size in tops, bottoms and dresses?
  • Is my waist my slimmest part?

If so, you have an hour glass figure: lucky girl.

Am I An Rectangle Body Shape?

A rectangle body shape is defined by equal proportions on the bust, waist, hips and legs. This ‘straight up and down figure’ is often sported by models and athletes.

Ask yourself:

  • Is my body straight?
  • Are my waist, hips and bust the same size?
  • Do I gain weight equally around my body?

Bingo! You are a rectangle shape.

How To Style A Scarf For Your Body Shape

When it comes to learning to style a scarf for your body shape, your aim is to balance out your proportions to look more like the hour glass shape.

Scarves are a fantastic accessory to add volume on specific body parts. Alternatively, slim scarves can be used to cinch the waist in or draw attention to certain areas.

Vogue Covers Through Time: 1920s- Today

A lot has changed in the last 100 years, especially when it comes to fashion. It’s safe to say that the pre-World War One corsets worn by our Great Great Grandmothers are truly out of the window.

For over a hundred years, Vogue magazine has been a go-to mecca for fashionstas looking for the next big sartorial thing. So what better way to take a trip down fashion memory lane, than to look at Vogue covers through time.

Get out your notebooks: it’s time for a lesson in fashion history! Here’s Vogue covers through time from 1920s- today….

1920s

The 1920s was when fashion really took a turn towards the modern. Out were the dowdy underskirts and heavy petticoats, and in was the sexy and chic!

Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel changed history with the camisole dress, which become a stunning staple of ‘the roaring twenties’. This fashion daredevil even paved the way for women to wear pants (you go girl!)

Get The 1920s Cover Look

Of all of the Vogue covers we have featured, the 1920s style is perhaps the easiest to rock today. Grab a drop-waist printed sun dress, or layer a long top over an ankle length, pleated skirt. Finally, top it off with the floral paisley wool scarf.

Blue

1930s

This 1939 Vogue cover makes us want to get in a time capsule and launch ourselves into the French Riviera.

When you put the exact date into historical context, the cover takes on a whole new meaning, one that is almost haunting. Released just one month before the start of World War Two, it presents a relaxed, utopian stance, much in contrast to the utilitarian suiting of the 1940s.

Get The 1940s Vogue Cover Look

Luckily, this look could be completely replicated today without you feeling like you have a glowing idiot sign above your head.

All it takes is a white tee, vintage-style sunnies and a slither of hot, red lipstick. Tie your hair back in a high bun and smooth back with the exotic silk scarf.

1940s

This resort-themed cover was surprisingly released in Winter. Perhaps the punchy, tropical prints acted as an escapism from war and depression.

Nonetheless, the giant sun hat and oh-so-40s high neck romper make this cover one of the most beautiful in Vogue’s history.

1950s

vogue-1950s-cover

Funky monochrome and an outfit that is more pretty than practical marks the start of ‘art fashion’.

The 1950s is synonymous with shapes, and this cover is a literal representation of that. An artsy, monochrome cover makes the reader concentrate solely on shape and texture.

Pointed ties and scarves resembling ties? Could this be the start of ‘boyfriend dressing’?

Get The 1950s Vogue Cover Look

With so many dramatic sleeves around this season, grab a slouchy black shirt for something effortlessly cool. Tie the artistic print silk scarf around your neck with ends pointing upwards. Layer the solid color scarf over the top and wear it long.

1960s

Twiggy with flowers painted on her face: does it get more 60s than that? Yes, it does! Add floral printed, faux-fur, ponchos and huge, plastic, floral earrings into the mix and you have the 1960s ‘love child’ trend in a nutshell!

The 60s was all about the wild and wonderful, with mini skirts, shift dresses and crazy prints all taking center stage.

1970s

1970s fashion was immortalized by Bianca Jagger entering Studio 54 on that white horse. If anyone was the Queen of disco chic, it was her!

The 1970s were like the sartorial stepping stones between the flowy, flowery 1960s and the brash 80s. Wrap dresses, huge flares, floppy hats and maxi dresses were all born in this glorious era.

1980s

Loud and athletic are the two best ways to describe 80s fashion!

This decade was also the start of ‘The Supermodel era’, so it’s only fitting that Vogue would put Cindy Crawford on their cover. Her pink eye and lip makeup is perfectly matched to her headphones. The 80s was really about embracing all that chunky technology.

1990s

Remember when Supermodels graced the covers of magazines rather than celebrities? Before Kim Kardashian and ko (sorry, had to) were plastered all over Vogue’s pages, it was all about Naomi and Linda!

This famous cover marks Vogue’s 100th Issue and features some of the most prominent models of the era. Also, remember when everyone used to tie their shirts like this? The 90s was all about the midriff!

2000s

(Photo Source: vogueandcoffee.tumblr.com)

Kiera Knightley was such a 00’s ‘it girl’.

With the internet fast becoming the biggest source of fashion inspiration, actresses and singers became as known for their personal style as they were for their creative endeavors.

Vogue embraced this ‘fast celebrity’ culture by putting more actresses, singers and celebrities on their coveted cover.
