AZZA VERA is a Turkish fashion designer into vintage-type fashion. Their offerings range from Bohemian styles to fabulous bell bottom pants. I learned of this designer on Instagram. Even if you don't understand Turkish, their fashion translate well in any language, especially if you adore vintage fashion. This is just my own sort of introduction and focus on AZZA VERA.

Notes to Pass Along...

I came up with this post on my own. I was not contacted by, or endorsed by this designer to come up with this post. All thoughts are my own.


Here is a sample of their fashion:

^ from: (Twitter - and the best I could find/use) - These bell bottom pants are among AZZA VERA's many different offerings.

AZZA VERA is a designer based in Izmir, Turkey. Their work is headed by its founder- Irem Onarim. Her company offers up delightful fashions for the free spirited types. I usually look up bell bottoms on Instagram, and I usually see a lot of AZZA VERA's flared pants and bell bottom pants. Their flares features many colorful and bold bell bottom pants. What I love most about AZZA VERA is their colorful fashions and lovely fashion pieces. While there is nothing "cute" about their clothing, they do offer some fun and charming fashions. Their fashions will definitely appeal to types into ethnic type fashion and even those who want a stylish pair of bell bottom pants to go with a cropped top or something. Besides their eccentric bell bottom pants, AZZA VERA offers dresses, skirts, tops, and more.

My Thoughts...

I think AZZA VERA is a fine designer with some wonderful clothes. One way to stylishly stand out in a crowd is to wear bold and detailed clothing. AZZA VERA knows this and has put out a number of fine designs to make almost any lady stand out. Since I adore bells, ruffles, and bell bottoms; AZZA VERA has you covered with their many different offerings. Especially if you are the Bohemian or vintage type, this is a fine choice to build your own vintage style wardrobe with. The bold patterns and colors make these some fine clothes to wear. So consider AZZA VERA if their style of fashion suits you best.

ELLERY is an Australian high-end fashion designer famous for their outrageous and bold designs. I first learned of ELLERY for some extreme looking bell bottom jeans they designed. Statement designs are a specialty of ELLERY. The designs of ELLERY have been showcased in many world-class fashion shows and worn by many different models and personalities. I am hopeful to showcase ELLERY to my international viewing audience here on "StyleSpace by JBM."


ELLERY is named for its founder, Kym Ellery. The (32 years old as of July 31, 2017)-year old native of Perth, Western Australia, Australia has designed some wild and bold fashions. You can look around at the designs she has come up with. Few, if any, of her designs don't have "statement" in its design. While ELLERY's designs are flamboyant, they are not brash. Her designs are more elegantly edgy. You will see tops and dresses with bold bell designs. Pants and skirts have some statement appeal also. And you can basically forget about buying a pair of straight-leg or skinny jeans from ELLERY because many of her denim designs are bold denim with ruffled legs or bell bottoms.

ELLERY also offers accessories. Just like the clothes, items such as earrings and necklaces are elegant and stylish while making powerful fashion statements. Also offered are sunglasses in a number of unique styles. This is a high-end designer, so don't expect any real mainstream material.

Video Insight.

Take a look at these videos for a little idea on Kym Ellery and her style:

And this is a fashion show with some insight on her designs:

So now you know a bit about Kym Ellery and her designs.

ELLERY: Final Thoughts

Kym Ellery has done a sensational job putting together exceptional high-end fashion. All things considered, it is very possible ELLERY could be among the major high-end designers of today. Ellery surely puts Australia on the fashion map. And if this Aussie has her way, she'll be as celebrated as even the finest American or European designers.


You can learn more about ELLERY by checking out the material in this section.

For More Information...

Learn more about ELLERY by visiting www.ellery.com. Be warned- prices for items on ELLERY's website are only offered in Australian Dollars. So you will need to convert to some other currency if you want to buy from the ELLERY website.

Free People

@FreePeople is a popular designer among many a fashionista. Founded in 1984, they mostly offer Bohemian-type fashions to mostly young females. Considering how popular Bohemian fashion is, this company is a boon to the Bohemian fashion style. This blog post will offer my own introduction to Free People to all of my visitors of "StyleSpace by JBM." So if this is your first time, welcome to my unconventional fashion and beauty blog! Enjoy your stay! :)

A Note About "Brands" Posts

All posts under the Brands category on "StyleSpace by JBM" are solely based on opinion. I offer my own opinions about anything featured under such labels. Either I mention brands myself or am contacted by certain individuals for their brands to be promoted.

Free People

As mentioned in the introduction, Free People was founded in 1984 and headquartered in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, USA. They mostly specialize in casual Bohemian-style fashions enjoyed mostly by young fashionistas. The Bohemian fashion style entails easy-going and comfortable style. They offer fashions that are enjoyed by a vast number of people. Free People has a handful of dresses, skirts, denim, pants, and even intimates. Not all of their offerings are casual, though. For instance, I saw an elegant maxi dress from their site as I was researching for this topic.

The designer also offers a variety of footwear ranging from casual footwear to chic offerings. Their offerings won't exactly make the likes of Converse or any world-renowned shoe designer shake in their shoes, but they do provide great-looking footwear for a number of fashion types. Their footwear portfolio includes various pumps, sneakers, lace-up shoes, sandals, and boots of various lengths. So when you put together an outfit with Free People, look to Free People to complete your outfit with a fine pair of shoes.

Free People mostly is the kind of designer to tailor to the tastes of Bohemian or even vintage types. They seem more for the Bohemian or vintage set rather than anything edgy, urban, super chic, or anything like that.

Free People Insight

Here are some items pertaining to Free People. Take a look at these videos to gain some insight on Free People and their fashion insights:

^ Free People Presents | Summer of Love

^ Nashville Road Trip | Free People

^ Get Into the Groove | Lookbooks | Free People

All videos were from Free People's YouTube channel. I tried to come up with blogger insight on Free People, but I couldn't find anybody immediately to showcase Free People fashions to all of you. Maybe I will add some in edits to this blog post.

Free People: Final Thoughts

Free People is a popular designer for a reason. They may not arouse you for seductive fashions or world-class chic styles, but they do offer chic fashions for the easy casual girl. This is a designer that is about being a leader and not a follower. The fashions and the styles of Free People speak highly to the character of Bohemian and vintage fashion. So if you're wanting to break free and be free, look to Free People!

Luxury Sneakers

Who wants to pay hundreds for sneakers? Granted I am not much the sneaker type, I never understood why one would pay so much for a pair of sneakers, or why make sneakers overly chic. Sneakers are usually casual and rugged. Sneakers ruin certain outfits to me. Simply adding sneakers doesn't always work, people! People will still try to make sneakers chic in some sort of way. Some high-end designers make high-end style sneakers. And so the focus of this blog post is on luxury sneakers. No specific brands or designers- just high-end sneakers in general.

Luxury Sneakers in General

Anything luxury is defined as anything which purpose is beyond the original purpose of an item. For example, high-end sports cars and exotic cars are considered "luxury" because they capitalize on high horsepower or very fast speeds. So what "luxury" do luxury sneakers have? I doubt there is anyone who has never owned a single pair of sneakers in his or her life. Sneakers are either worn for casual wear or for active use. Sneakers scuff up and get worn out because they were meant to be worn out casually with casual outfits or some sporty outfits. Luxury sneakers, conversely, are primarily high-priced sneakers with immaculate details and luxe design elements. Many of these sneakers are still very durable, but they have a touch of chic that make them more than your average sneakers. Luxury sneakers are enjoyed by the likes of males and females. You could say various luxury sneakers are casual cool for the chic set. They are sneakers for the high-end fashion stars.

Who Makes Luxury Sneakers?

There are a handful of high-end designers and some mainstream designers who make such high-end sneakers. Among many: Jimmy Choo, Giuseppe Zanotti, Dior, Louis Vuitton, Versace, and many others.

Luxury Sneaker Examples.

Luxury sneakers from high-end designers. Here are some examples for your viewing pleasure. All media are for educational purposes:

luxury sneakers female
^ from: shop.nordstrom.com - These are wedge sneakers from Jimmy Choo.

luxury sneakers female Zanotti
^ from: (Wheretoget) - These wedge sneakers are high-end for sure from Giuseppe Zanotti.

luxury sneakers male
^ from: www.endclothing.com (best I could find) - Even males can enjoy some luxury sneakers.

A lot of luxury brand sneakers are fairly high priced. Some even are designed by high-end designers for not-so high-end companies. There are still a handful of sneakers from high-end luxury designers delivering casual style even for the one with fairly average budgets. Some of these luxury sneakers are glammed up models (especially feminine luxury sneakers) sure to be a chic compliment to various outfits.

Luxury Sneakers: Final Thoughts

If you fancy sneakers and want high-end style, you can do little wrong with a proper pair of luxury sneakers. They may be highly-priced, but I am sure many people are getting their money's worth styling outfits with various high-end sneakers. Those dressing casually with high-end garments can complete a high-end casual outfit with a fine pair of luxury sneakers. Just be sure to find a pair of high-end sneakers that suit your style and compliment your outfit(s) well.

I probably can type up more stuff, but that's all for now. But before closing, here is a discussion question in case you want to get a discussion going:

Are you fond of luxury sneakers and high-end sneakers? Is it even worth the money to buy expensive sneakers?

Two-Piece Dresses

The two-piece dress is popular. Basically, this is like a cheap way of labeling a top with a matching skirt. I think a true "two-piece dress" would be if the dress is convertible from dress to top and skirt. To me, a true "two-piece dress" would be one can be worn as a dress or detached to separates. So what does a two-piece dress look like? Here is an example:

two-piece dress
^ from: www.lulus.com - "Two-piece dress... or a matching top and skirt?

How we throw around terms can lead to confusion or simply not getting it. For example, as a car lover, I am used to terms like a "four-door coupe." And four door coupes are more like sedans... only that they don't want you to call it a sedan (which is a four-door car). Same confusing terminology applies to labeling things like the two-piece dress. Designers don't want you to call these as matching skirt sets, so enter the "two-piece dress." True dresses are one-piece skirts. They have a top and a skirt mated together. Even if one little thread holds the top and skirt parts together, it is still technically a dress. To extend the example further, I've seen pants that can be converted to shorts by removing two parts of the pants. That's convertible. That is what I would consider two-piece pants. I've even seen blog posts and outfits where two similar-looking separates are put together and match perfectly. And in the case of a dress-like outfit, that would be like pairing a bodysuit with a matching skirt. But is it a true dress? No- it is a nicely-matching skirt outfit at best.

Don't get me wrong in all of this- I don't hate these top and skirt combinations. I just find the "two-piece dress" term silly. Don't call these truly as dresses or as two-piece dresses unless the top and skirt parts can be detached. At best, these two-piece dresses are merely stylish, matching top and skirt sets. For the price of one, a "two-piece dress" offers you a stylish top and a stylish skirt. But please- these are NOT true dresses! Make dresses that can be converted to skirts, dresses that could be worn as skirts, or dresses that can have the top and skirt detached- THEN call them two-piece dresses. Get over the cute terminology- these are tops and skirts, NOT true dresses.

But again... that is just my commentary.

Two-Piece Dresses Online

If you thought I was being harsh on these garments, my only gripe concerned simply calling these as "two-piece dresses." They aren't true dresses as I see dresses. Not once have I hated the style of these outfits all post long. Maybe you want your own two-piece dress. If you are one of those or wanting to buy one for someone else, let me help you while you're still here. So use these items to find relevant material. Your participation is voluntary, but appreciated if you do business here.

Skechers is very popular for their unique shoes. Their shoes likely won't arouse the most fashion-savvy audiences, but they more than make up for this with many high-quality shoes for a variety of ages and for both males and females. Skechers is therefore one of the most popular and well-liked footwear designers today. In this blog post, I will make mention to Skechers and their many different shoes they have to offer. I'd like to welcome all of you to "StyleSpace by JBM" and another post in my fashion and beauty blog.

A Note About Brands Posts...

All posts under my "Brands" quality are all personal opinion, and I am not paid or sponsored to post about all featured brands in my posts. I was not contacted by Skechers or anything in coming up with this post. It was simply my decision to blog about this company and their offerings.


Founded in 1992 and based in Manhattan Beach, California, USA; Skechers footwear can be found in a variety of stores. Their offerings encompass casual (and some chic) shoes for everyone of all ages ranging from babies to adults. Many of which are mostly affordable. A lot of Skechers shoes offer some fairly unique casual design shoes that have sporty style. Aside from mostly sporty shoes, they also offer workwear shoes. Among some of their non-sporty, non fashion shoes are a variety of work shoes.

I mentioned Skechers as not being something that would appeal to very fashionable folk. And very much so, they aren't going to. Some people would probably think they would be found dead wearing Skechers. At least Skechers is a different kind of footwear company with casual shoes apart from the likes of (for example) Converse. Even still, you see Skechers promoted by celebrities. Some of those whom have worn and promoted Skechers include former football player Howie Long and singer Meghan Trainor.

I've owned a pair of Skechers sneakers before. I found them to be a bit rugged and stylish for my casual wardrobe. They did feel a bit flat for me since these were a mostly flat pair of sneakers. And since I don't really have any heels, I felt a bit weak after extended amounts of walking in them.

Skechers for females can be very cute. Their popular Bikers shoes are a cross between mary janes and sporty sneakers. They were more like sporty mary janes. I even remember a few sneaker-style sandals Skechers offered especially in the 2000s. Skechers even have some laceless sneakers and some backless sneakers I recall.

Famous (or Infamous?) Skechers.

Two of Skechers' shoe lines have been rather notorious. In the 2000s, they revealed their "Shape-Ups" shoes. The Shape-Up shoes could be thought of as workout shoes for those who don't like working out. Their unusual design combines a wedge sort of shoe along with their usual sporty appearance. Many thought these were ugly; some others actually wore these and put them to good use.

The other interesting shoes could be thought of as Skechers' answer to TOMS- BOBS. TOMS is known for offering their espadrilles and other shoes in which proceeds and purchases of their shoes help provide children in need with shoes to wear. BOBS, therefore, is Skechers' initiative to do the same. You probably don't hear much about BOBS as much as you do TOMS, but it is always great to have such benevolence from a company like Skechers.

Please note that some of these items or some of these topics may show up in individual blog posts here on "StyleSpace by JBM."

Skechers sneakers
^ from: www.amazon.com - Here are a basic pair of Skechers sneakers. This is a pair of women's sneakers.

Skechers sandals
^ from: www.overstock.com - Here are some of their sandals.

Now for two different styles of boots.

Skechers fashion boots

Skechers work boots
^ from: www.amazon.com - These men's work boots are Skechers as well..

Skechers Shape-Ups
^ from: www.amazon.com - The Shape-Ups from Skechers gained popularity as being shoes for those who want a workout without actually getting a workout. Note the wedge style of these shoes while not being a proper pair of wedge shoes.

Skechers Shape-Ups sandals
^ from: www.amazon.com - Shape-Ups, however, can also take on different forms- such as these feminine sandals.

Skechers BOBS
^ from: www.kohls.com - BOBS are the feminine shoes Skechers offers. Most important about these shoes is how Skechers gives back to others upon purchase of these shoes.

So you now have an idea of Skechers and their offerings.

Skechers: Final Thoughts

From babies to adults, males and females, and of many purposes; Skechers has a diverse profile and array of shoes for mostly casual and sporty tastes. It is almost as if to say there is a pair of Skechers for everyone at prices that won't exactly break the bank. They offer a style of footwear that is appealing in the sense of interesting colors and styles. Their shoes are anything but boring. Skechers isn't going to blow you away with chic offerings, and I doubt there are too many A-list celebrities who will be wearing Skechers over any high-fashion brands or labels. For those who just want a stylish pair of casual shoes, Skechers should not be overlooked or undermined. Look elsewhere if you seek elegance. If you just want cool and stylish casual shoes or daytime shoes, give Skechers a try. You probably won't regret it. So go find Skechers footwear at your favorite retail store, or even visit a Skechers store if any are available to you.

Do remember that as a fashion blog, I do not exclusively have to mention high-end brands all the time. Most people usually feel all fashion blogs only mention and promote high-end designers. Perhaps people only care about the major designers. I am not like that. In fact, there haven't been too many times in the history of "StyleSpace by JBM" where I have mentioned elite fashion designers. I am still pleased to do a proper blog post on companies like Skechers.

Maxi Rompers/Playsuits

Maxi dress, meet rompers/playsuits. Though rompers/playsuits are technically dresses, maxi rompers combine the romper appeal while offering a dress-like appearance. The big advantage is in being covered with the romper. Especially rompers of the past ten or so years have basically been covered alternatives to mini dresses. Maxi rompers are rompers but with the covering of a long dress or a kimono. They are even more of all-in-ones. This blog post will be all about maxi rompers/playsuits and what I think about them.

NOTE: If you are new to "StyleSpace by JBM," I use "rompers/playsuits" a lot, but usually use "romper." These short jumpsuits are called rompers or playsuits by most people. But just know I use "romper" to describe such outfits.

Maxi Romper/Playsuit Examples.

All of the media shown here are for educational purposes. Here are examples of maxi rompers:

maxi romper playsuit
^ from: www.lulus.com - A maxi romper. You probably can't see it too well, but note the romper part combined with the long dress.

maxi romper playsuit
^ from: www.shopperboard.com - Believe it or not, this beautiful high-low dress is really a maxi romper.

maxi romper playsuit
^ from: www.tobi.com - This maxi romper is almost elegant enough to be worn for a night out or a date. You probably can for what I know!

floral maxi romper playsuit
^ from: www.tillys.com - This is a casual floral romper.

And this is some video insight of a maxi romper:

^ Fancy Meeting You Here Maxi Romper

So now you have an idea of what kinds of garments we are discussing here. Now comes my thoughts on maxi rompers.

Maxi Rompers/Playsuits: How to Style?

I find most long dresses to best be paired with any number of chic shoes or sandals. Same applies to maxi rompers. You can also go with boots and booties. Some rompers are casual enough to be worn with a pair of sandals or some very casual sandals. I guess if you're going with sneakers, I'd stay away from basketball sneakers or something. Even as much as I loathed most of them, even go with some wedge sneakers with maxi rompers if you love them so much.

All I know is that maxi rompers allow you to enjoy elegantly showing off your legs. So you may want to go with some fun and stylish footwear to go with maxi rompers while also offering open-air comfort for your legs and feet. Maybe if it is cold weather time, you COULD go with wearing warm tights with maxi rompers, but I'd probably keep these for warm weather times instead of trying to make them all-year garments.

Maxi Rompers/Playsuits: Final Thoughts.

If you ask me, I think these are a romantic take on the romper. I would probably go as far as to say these are dresses for those who don't like wearing proper dresses. Maxi rompers should still appeal to fashionistas who already love rompers. Just imagine having the comfort of a romper while also sporting a silky dress. Simply put- a maxi romper is a covered long dress. And just like maxi dresses, maxi rompers can be immensely elegant. So go ahead and wear these sweet rompers if you enjoy both maxi dresses and romper dresses.

Maxi Rompers/Playsuits Online.

I can help you shop for maxi rompers/playsuits. Take a look at the items below and shop around. Thanks for your cooperation if you plan on doing any shopping! Remember- your participation here is voluntary.

The blog post is over.

What do you think about maxi rompers? If you already love or wear rompers, would you wear a maxi romper?

I hope you enjoyed this post as much as I enjoyed making it for all of you fashion lovers. Thank you for reading! Take care and be well.

Statement Sleeves

Make a statement... with sleeves! Statement sleeves have been one of the latest style touches. Garments with dramatic sleeves can really say something. Bell sleeves, ruffles, puffy sleeves... all are statement makers. You can really provide a dramatic statement with these powerful tops and dresses with statement sleeves. The premise of statement sleeves is on dramatically styled sleeves that enhance the style of one outfit. You could even have a basic T-shirt that somehow has some powerful looking sleeves to them to make it even better than any simple T-shirt. Usually, such statement sleeve garments are with beautiful blouses, some button-down shirts, and almost any kind of dress that has dramatic sleeves to them. Even rompers/playsuits that may have sleeves to them can offer dramatic style statements. So no matter what, there are many ways to make a statement- especially with statement sleeves.

Personally, I find statement sleeves to be amazing when done right. The only thing I would caution is to make sure you don't go with too many other powerful items- especially in the case of a statement sleeve top. So for example, don't go with overly wild bottoms or shoes to go with the statement sleeve top or dress. I am thinking more in terms of proportions and balance here. Footwear choices depend on the outfit. I prefer to stay away from sneakers or any really casual sandals if I have a really beautiful statement sleeve top or dress. Some outfits are fine for a style touch with some statement sleeves, but not all outfits work with certain footwear. I think it all depends on the outfit and your style. I'm not here to make fashion choices for you, but I would just keep balance and order in mind when styling certain statement sleeve tops and dresses.

I may caution is that statement sleeves can be too powerful for petites. Much like how maxi dresses and flared bottoms can overwhelm some petite figures, statement sleeves can almost do the same impact to some petites. All is well if you can find a great top or dress with statement sleeves that is more petite-friendly.

One other thing I caution you about is that such sleeved garments may not be overly practical. So be careful with things like eating out, being around fires, some doors, and that sort of thing. You don't want to rip apart your garment or risk some kind of environmental hazards while looking fabulous with your statement sleeve garment(s).

Statement Sleeve: Picture Insight.

Let me provide some pictures to give you some insight on statement sleeves. Take a look:

ruffle statement sleeves
^ from: www.amazon.com - Ruffle sleeve tops and dresses are fine examples of statement sleeve garments.

cascading statement sleeves
^ from: www.amazon.com - Cascading sleeves can be overly dramatic statement sleeve types.

bell statement sleeves
^ from: www.amazon.com - Dresses can boast statement sleeves as well, such as this bell sleeve dress.

Statement Sleeves: Video Insight.

Here are how some fashionistas are styling statement sleeves:

Now some bloggers who showcase some stylish statement sleeves. Remember to follow their blogs in some capacity if you adore their work:

"CUTEST STRIPE DRESS AND THE BEST SALES FOR THE WEEKEND" (Shall We Sasa) « a dress with tiered ruffle sleeves.

"Manic Monday: It’s All About The Sleeves" (Style Cassentials) « a striped top with short, cascading sleeves.

"FLIRTY FUN IN CASCADING RUFFLE SLEEVES" (cute and little) « a cascading sleeve blouse.
"STATEMENT BELL SLEEVE SWEATER FOR THE OFFICE" (cute and little) « a two-tone bell sleeve sweater.

I may include more from others if I decide to want to add more statement sleeve outfits.

Statement Sleeves: Final Thoughts.

Statement sleeve outfits can be absolutely beautiful. Styled well, they can provide dramatic and beautiful styles- even if worn casually. Uniquely girly and feminine, these tops and dresses can offer bold and chic fashion statements. Proudly wear some garments with powerful and attention-grabbing sleeves. Just be careful not to wear too many powerful pieces or anything that ruins proportions or balance with statement sleeve garments. Other than that, there is not really any real way to destroy such garments and outfits. So wear these statement sleeve garments proudly and fashionably.

(UPDATED: July 16, 2017)

You know, I've never hated houndstooth. Fashionistas sometimes wear houndstooth (I've also heard houndstooth as "rooster teeth") patterned garments. It is a uniquely edgy pattern mostly worn by females. They are also commonly black and white. At times, I have seen pink and white houndstooth patterns. Yet still, there are those who dare try this most unique pattern.

Myself personally, I tend to find houndstooth to be a fun pattern for the preppy set. I would probably like it best with outerwear and with caps (as in newsboy caps or berets). They may even be pretty cool for pumps and flats. If you love bows and ribbons, go ahead and wear a cute bow or ribbon with a houndstooth design. You can't really go wrong with houndstooth in my view.

So what does houndstooth look like? Here is a sample image. Now imagine this on various garments and accessories:

Wrap Garments

(UPDATED: July 17, 2017)

Wrapped garments offer abounding amounts of appeal. Wrap blouses, skirts, and dresses are among many kinds of wrap garments that make wonderful outfits. This blog post will certainly appeal to you fans of various wrap garments. I am hopeful you get to enjoy this post and all wrap dresses, skirts, and blouses have to offer.

This topic is actually one of many topics I started to make a blog post about long ago, but never completed until now. So some of the material here may be a bit outdated.

Wrap Garments

Various wrap garments allow for one to simply get in and out of while also being fashionable. As their name implies, you fasten these garments by wrapping them around your body. The level of comfort can be immense unless you feel they constrict your body to some degree. Most appealing to most wrap garments is the slimming effect and almost body-conscious appeal to them when worn. You can tell a wrap garment usually if you can spot a bow or something tied to try to keep the garment together. At least you can properly tie up a wrap garment to look hot while not feeling too risqué- unlike, for example... trying to wear a scarf as a top. So what you are getting with wrap garments is feminine and chic charm. All that remains is how to style certain wrap garments you wear. I'll leave that up to you fashionistas.

Wrap Garment Examples

If you see any items you like from the image sources, you are free to visit that site to shop for that item if it interests you.

Wrap Tops.

Any basic top with a wrap-front design offers anything ranging from flirty appeal to slimming appeal. Some wrap tops can range in style from casual to some night-out fashions. Dress some of them up with formal-type pants or skirts, or dress some of them down with denim jean bottoms. Some wrap tops can even be hot to wear for going to the nightclub or for some dates out on a hot day or hot night.

Wrap Blouses.

^ from: shop.nordstrom.com A beautiful bow on a wrap blouse can do wonders for your figure and your style. This specific one is a plus size wrap blouse.

Nothing says sophisticated quite like a blouse. A wrap blouse offers classy (and sometimes sexy) chic for women who wear them. These are feminine tops that can nicely compliment any sort of bottoms ranging from pants and shorts to skirts. Many have some pretty designs and some pretty sleeve designs. Some even have a sleeveless or or even off-shoulder designs to them. Certainly the off-shoulder design is trendy in these warm weather times. So go ahead and snap up a wrap top of some kind to wear with your favorite bottoms.

Wrap Dresses.

^ from: www.shopbop.com Wrap dresses can be both elegant and beautiful.

Originally, this blog post was supposed to be about just wrap dresses and wrap skirts. But knowing me, I try to offer a full spectrum on a trend or style. There is still a lot to be desired in regards to wrap dresses. Any dress that makes a female feel like a princess or a fairy is surely worthy of love. That is even if the dress is a wrap dress. I personally find wrap dresses to be as beautiful as wrap blouses. Wrap dresses offer the charm of both a body-wrapping appeal while also being ridiculously easy breezy to wear. Some wrap dresses could also be good for semi-formal or even formal outings. They can also be a boon for date night or Girls Night Out outings. It is also possible to have wrap dresses as coverups for the beach. You can look stylish in a wrap dress before unwrapping it to show off your fine swimsuit. Either way, wrap dresses are things of beauty.

Wrap Skirts.

^ from: www.amazon.com Wrap skirts are as chic as wrap dresses, only you get more versatility with a skirt.

A wrap skirt can be just as fashionable as a wrap dress. Really, wrap skirts can be like more wearable sarongs (if you're familiar with beach/surf/resort fashion). Wrap skirts can either be fine casual pieces or coverups for beach style fashion. There are a number of styles and a number of ways to go with wrap skirts. So feel free to find yourself a stylish wrap skirt to suit your fashion needs.

Is that enough wrap inspiration for you? I tried to find some blogger examples of wrap garments, but I couldn't find a whole lot to make into a segment. So the next section features some final thoughts on wrap garments. Read on...

Wrap Garments: Final Thoughts

I actually love wrap dresses the most. The blog post was to originally be about wrap dresses and wrap skirts; but considering this is a very old topic I finally got around to completing, there aren't too many wrap garments I dislike. Wrap garments are completely feminine and charming. Some even can be on the sexy side with more daring styles and more body-hugging appeal. Unless you just make poor styling choices, you can't really do wrong with any sort of wrap garment. Find yourself some stylish wrap garments and rock your style as best as you can!
