What to wear to F1 race

As I was getting ready for my first Formula 1 race last Sunday, I got a text from the other lady on our trip: “What the hell do you wear to one of these things?” I remember thinking, “Oh my god, I actually have no idea, I didn’t even bother to check and just pulled out the outfit which feels right.” And this year I was watching the race from the Paddock club so double pressure.
As I Googled “F1 what to wear,” the screen overloaded with images of Beyoncé in a tight racing suit, older women dressed like they are going to the ball and super models in red miniskirts holding racing flags. I was stumped..
in my mind the key to dressing for a racing event is simple – dress to impress while also staying comfortable. So I’ve decided to trust my gods and see if My outfit is just right for F1 race day.

What have I experienced: Formula 1 is a high-end affair. The roar of the track and the drivers who carry themselves like movie stars and embrace fashion with aplomb are undoubtedly stylish. women showing their style and sophistication over their sex appeal. They dress to enjoy the race and to be with their friends.
What is the big DON’T:
Large handbags are forbidden. F1 does not allow camera bags, backpacks, etc. The crowd keeps it simple and light. If you can’t fit your things into a wrist wallet or a clutch, you better practice packing! Leave your giant Michael Kors, Gucci and Prada totes at home.

Women at F1 are stylish but always comfortable. For example, you can wear your favorite mini, but balance it out with statement sneakers and a simple top. Do not show up in stilettos and a tight dress — people will think you’re an employee.
Event colors are red, black, yellow and white. However you do not need to follow this blindly. If you’re going to dress in racing colors, make it look original. There are a million girls at the race wearing head to toe red and white, so make creativity your middle name. And no need to take a literal inspiration and deck yourselves in chequered black and white flags or chevron stripes all over. Do avoid the urge at all costs. Instead put on a little of the stripes and colours (red, black or white) and scatter it around your outfit. Use famous F1 colors in accessories to make your outfit edgy and interesting..
Metallics. Women at F1 love to wear shades of gold, silver, bronze or anything that says, “I have money.” Do not go overboard with this and show up looking so “blinged out” that you could be mistaken for a Cartier advertisement.
Be edgy, be colorful. Just because you dress comfortably doesn’t mean you have to compromise on style. Women at Formula 1 are classic, elegant and like to push the envelope when it comes to their wardrobe.


Ah yeah! And don’t forget your earplugs 😉

For the past couple of years fashion has started to go towards more androgynous looks, or at least more effortless styles and cuts.

Skinny and fabulous!

I surprisingly receive many questions about how to dress, what to wear if you happened to be a skinny girl (petite, no curves) and still feel and look feminine, confident and sexy.. So I’ve decided to put all my thoughts about this in 1 article.

Sometimes nature plays tricks with us by gifting some women with an ideal body shape, while others get not the best features. Particularly if you’re naturally skinny, self-confidence and body image has always been probably the most challenging thing in life. Such stereotype that says “skinny is not happy” has made you doubt a lot on body confidence. If you wish you were a few kg heavier than you are just so that you could look prettier, stop wishing upon that star. You’ll be happy to hear that just a few changes to your wardrobe will make you look and fell more confident and stylish.

Finding the right outfits and accessories for skinny women is actually much easier than for those who have curves and weight. And by this, it means there are plenty of fashion choices out there for you to pull off just exactly like those models. So, be grateful with your slender body, and always be confident with that. If you don’t have problem with your body silhouette, then you can just wear anything you want. Being skinny is not a big deal since we can wear as many types of outfits as we want.

Luckily there are many styles that look absolutely great on slim women. So if you’re built like me, try these style tips for slim girls and find the clothes that work for you…

The Right Cut

1
Focusing on how to create curves and volume is the main goal for skinny girls. You need to create curves where you want them, or to add a balanced weight to the entire look. Nowadays, there are a number of designs that specialize in creating perfect slim size cuts with feminine curves places exactly where they are desirable. Make sure the outfit that you go for should fit you properly because ill-fitting clothes can make you look skinnier. If your clothes are hanging from your shoulder and your butt, not only the outfit will look bad, you won’t be able to get the look right.

 

Sleeves and Necklines for skinny women

sleeves
Dresses and tops with volume on shoulder are great for thin women to create the illusion of curves between waist and bust. You can add curves with ruffle shirts, or you can make fuller silhouette with shift dresses or baby-doll style clothes, although sometimes baby-dolls can also create a visual shorter look. Bat-wing sleeves are also great for adding some additional shape, while long sleeve tops with prints are great for disguising thin upper arms. It will also help to fill out the bust area. If you have a flat bust go for a dress with sequins, jewels, or a ruffles near the collar area to help out your bust. Draping at the neckline can be a very flattering style for small-busted figures, but avoid very deep cleavage such as V-neckline and play fairly with the chest.

 

Skirts

skirts

Asymmetrical, tube or pencil skirts – short or long – that tapers at the knee is a good bet to give a visual extra pounds on your hips. Play with belts, pleats, tights, etc. to maximize the appearance you want to achieve. If you wish for a mini, just make it about 15 cm above your knee and allow the skirt to be well fitting, not a free size one. When choosing shorts, go for the shorter ones, the well fitted – not too loose and not too tight – short shorts around the hips. Avoid very wide leg shorts as they make your legs look like a pair of sticks.


Right colors and prints

colorsBright and light colors like vibrant shades and pastels are great to create volume as well to give a fashionable, feminine touch into the look. Don’t be shy about wearing bright colors and dare to wear red or yellow if you have the right coloring. If you want to look wider, the best trick is to opt for outfits that split up your body at the center line, creating two halves by distinctive colors. Wear more than one color combination and play them with contrast. For example wear light tops and dark bottoms.

 

Belts

belt

Belts should become your new best friend! besides giving formal touch into your look, both thick and skinny belts paired over a dress or coat will add shape to your outfit and accentuate your tiny waist. If you have no waist, go for wide belts in bright colors, and if your waist is small, try out some beautiful original belts.

 

Footwear

shoes

Here you can play with colors, sparks, and appliques for adding weight to your legs and for drawing attention away from the bony knees. I would recommend to avoid wearing wedges as they are creating to heavy look for skinny legs. Heels instead will produce much taller figure to thin women, making them as gorgeous as supermodels. It basically depends on your confidence.


Long skirts, long dresses, jumpsuits, flare pants, cropped pants … all are flattering for casual-chic looks, especially if you don’t really want showing your legs

jumpsuits

 

You don’t have to follow all tips because you surely have your own personal style and judgment. These tips are just a basic idea if you are not sure how to dress your body.

Just remember to make fashion fun and enjoyable. Wear whatever styles you want to wear. Coz everybody is allowed to have a great time with their figure. Don’t think much if you are skinny or have problems with part of your body

All styling tips aside, the only ultimate advice that for sure will get you the best of your look is loving yourself and learning to be confident. Always believe that absolutely no one – in all body shape – is immune to being self-conscious about their appearance. As long as you feel healthy, never fear to show off your skinniness. You’re the only one who can accept who you really are. If you accept it, people will notice.

So, pull off whatever styles you like with confident and stop trying to be someone else. As no matter what size you are, you will never be truly happy if you obsess over the way you look. Style your figure fabulous, and never worry what people might think. Just have fun with fashion, enjoy and be grateful on what nature gives you.

Here in my blog and my FashIcon App I basically just want to show that fashion is all about being grateful with your shape. That fashion is really for everybody!

A woman wearing a tie..

A woman wearing a tie is undeniably sexy. Seriously, have you seen a woman in a tie? They look great! The look is regal mixed with flirty sass. Ties give a look of fierceness to women. Be honest, who doesn’t want to look powerful ?
The tie look can make you stand out from a sea of dresses. It makes a confident statement that you’re at ease with your femininity – you don’t need to be in a floor length pink number to feel womanly.


I wear mine to make a statement. To be seen. To let it be known that I do not, and will not, conform! That I am shepherd, not sheep. That I’m the person with courage, with my own ideas and my own unique style .
