Every year there are distinctive trends in wedding fashion and beauty, especially for gowns, custom bridal jewelry, and wedding hairstyles. This year, there are some fantastic trends which any bride can easily adapt to her wedding. Take a look at the best wedding fashion trends of 2011.

Simple But Elegant Wedding Gowns. After many seasons of asymmetry, ruching, ruffles, and outrageously bold embellishments, there is a small trend afoot back towards more simple bridal gowns.

If you are a new parent, or if you have been too busy to take the issue seriously, then this article is for you. Here, we will discuss some of the hottest trends in children’s clothing currently in circulation.

Tracksuits

Boys will breathe a huge sigh of relief here; the boy’s tracksuit is still a firm favourite amongst fashion gurus. Thanks largely to the popularity of hip-hop and break dancing, the tracksuit is here to stay for a few more seasons yet. Read the rest of this entry »
