Looking Your Best without Upstaging the Bride

Everyone loves weddings. It generally gives everyone this feeling of euphoria. You get to witness two people deeply in love tie the knot. The food is almost always extremely top notch and superb. And finally, the ladies are afforded the chance to get dolled up and don a fancy dress for a day.


When I was in my late teens, I always viewed dressing up for weddings as something akin to Cinderella going to her first ball. From our fancy dresses to our pretty shoes we painstakingly picked out from thousands of others because it matched our outfits perfectly and down to the makeup done professionally and tastefully — it is certainly an event where a girl would feel and look her best.


Unattached ladies may feel particularly antsy for this event. As not only will they be having that feeling of attending a ball. But they are also given the chance to have the complete Cinderella experience should they meet their personal prince charming over wine and drinks during the reception.


However, when dinner is over and everyone’s personal social lubricant has already seeped in their blood, most of the ladies will getting towed off with a much fancier accessory on their arm than an expensive handbag. What else could it be, but *cough* a man *cough.* And should you be left on the table nursing more wine, you would look so glaringly single.


If there is anything single ladies loathe more — most especially ladies in their mid-twenties, it is the prospect of looking very obviously single. And the reason, you might ask, is the fact that it invites rather rude and prying questions from relatives, inquiring as to whether you intend on getting hitched or not at all. This is a particular dilemma most single womenfolk do not want to encounter on a frivolous night that was not supposed to be about her, but the couple sharing a bite from the wedding cake.


Thereby, it would be certainly helpful should a prospective man save her from all these queries simply by being her arm candy. Which is why, women all over the world find it imperative to dress to the nines during weddings.


True as this may, it would be in bad taste if you committed the ultimate wedding fashion faux pas if you showed up in a dress that very visibly upstaging the bride. Though wedding receptions or weddings generally are great mediums and events to meet the potential love of our lives and are certainly great occasions for dressing up, you have to take note that this day is all about the couple. Not you.


And though you were given the worthy invitation of witnessing their joyous celebration, it does not excuse you from stealing the spotlight away from them more so the bride.

So if you are feeling a bit uncertain as to how to proceed in looking fancy yet simple enough so as not to throw some shade to the bride, this article will serve as your guide as to how appear fashionable, chic and sexy during weddings without upstaging the star of the night.


  • Stick to the dress code given


This needs no further elaboration. However, most ladies overlook this tiny little detail in favor of looking what they deem as their personal best. Invitations usually spell out the dress code for the guests. If none was given at all, clue in to the subtle hints given by the couple in their invitation. Take note of the time and location of their wedding, for instance.


In deciphering these hints, follow this cardinal rule: “casual” means a day dress, pretty skirts, and blouses or a cute sundress. Whereas, when it is stated that it is a “cocktail” or “semi-formal” event, a cocktail dress would do. However, if it states in the invitation that it is strictly formal, a floor length dress or formal cocktail dress will do. If the invite specifies the event as a “black tie” affair, it means you would have to opt for a luxe cocktail dress or an evening gown.


  • White is an absolute no-no


It may seem a little bit archaic and old fashioned considering this is the modern times, but this is us neither playing safe nor not taking risky, fashion-forward choices. You cannot wear white to a wedding ever. Well, unless you are the bride. It would not matter either if the bride is rather easy going or that your dress is a variant of white such as cream, eggshell or ecru. No. Just don’t.


Remember how this article spelled out that weddings are supposed to be about the couple and not about you? Yes. That’s it. This is me reminding you of that. Bottom line: Don’t do it. There is absolutely no excuse for this.


  • Skin is okay, but do not overexpose yourself


Weddings normally have extended family and relatives invited. This translates that family is present — the grandparents, the nieces and nephews, the uncles and aunts and you get my drift.


The point is, you do not want to make an impression as being the friend who looked like a wardrobe malfunction waiting to happen. You do not want to be the guest who flashed too much skin in front of the family or the groomsmen with her way too short skin tight dress and generous cleavage. Keep it simple and save those skimpy dresses for the bachelorette party.


  • Give your heels a test drive BEFORE the wedding


Do not under, under any circumstance, break your new gorgeous heels in on the day of the wedding. Should you do so, you will not only be giving yourself an uncomfortable time when you do stand up. Certainly, you will also not be able to dance during the reception and the after-party.


Do this before the wedding day and always be prepared with bandages in your purse in case of blisters. However, if you are carrying a rather large clutch or should you be driving to the destination, it would be best to pack a flat pair of shoes.


  • Pretty details and jewelry will amp any outfit


Though you should steer clear from extreme dresses, the same should not be applied in your choice of accessories. Feel free to utilize bold jewels and intricate details. Although you are a strong believer of bold is beautiful, make sure they go well with your dress and would not clash. This will help you make any plain outfit look simply fabulous and fashionable.


To wrap this up, there are various ways in dressing up for a wedding depending on the theme or the place of the event. Even if you are not the event’s star of the day, it does not mean you have to disappear into the crowd. You can still stand out as one of the fabulously dressed guests, but be extra careful not to tread on the shoes of the bride. On the couple’s special day, be fashion-forward without being a limelight stealer.

Dress Code: 8 Outfits That Will Get You Fired

Office fashion can be the best thing and the worst thing that can happen to us. Thinking about what to wear can feel like a job itself. Dressing up is both a physical expression and nonverbal communication. Unless your company requires you to wear a corporate uniform, choosing what to wear can be one of our biggest hassles every morning.

Let’s face it! There are just times that we want to stand out, advocating our rights on how we should dress up.  However, there are certain guidelines that we need to follow for us to look professional, for instance. How you dress at work matters most even when the office standard is established as “corporate casual.”

Well, we (especially women) are talking about what to wear at work. Definitely, we will not going to choose an attire that we usually wear for parties. After all, your company needs your skill, not your outfits. But for the sake of your career, you better reconsider what you are wearing at work.

1. Any clothes that are too short

Thinking about wearing shorts, mini-skirts or even short dresses? You better think again. Technically, these outfits are very eye-catching people will notice you immediately. However, it might get you into trouble one day, and I’m sure you don’t want that to happen. Flaunting your skin is not a bad thing at all for as long you are wearing it at the proper place, and the office is not one of those places.

Unless you are going to have a company outing or other such activities, there might be the need to wear those kinds of clothes for you to feel comfortable moving around. When it comes to work, wearing such skimpy clothes is a no-no.

2.  Anything that has a plunging neckline, sheer, backless, strapless, spaghetti straps, halter tops, etc.

Like wearing too short clothes, these outfits are a no-no in the corporate world. These are the attires that show too much of your skin. Basically, there is no need for you to wear and flaunt your skin at the office since you are there for work and not for a fashion show.

These clothes will not help you look attractive at all. Instead, it will make you an easy target for office gossip from both men and women. This unfortunate incident will almost always overshadow your work.

3. Anything overly trendy or flashy

If you don’t want your workmates laughing at you for wearing otherworldly outfits, you better avoid wearing them. I’m sure you will definitely feel ashamed wearing 1980’s blingy sequin skirts paired with over-the-knee stiletto boots in this modern generation.

Even if you are working in a fashion industry where wearing such outfits might be a normal one, when it comes to an office attire, please, don’t! Moreover, wearing trendy clothes that don’t suit you at all is also not a good thing to do. If you really want to wear the latest styles, you might as well choose outfits that best suit you. There are tons of outfits that you can choose from and are still office-appropriate.

4.  Anything that you’d wear as part of a Halloween costume, wedding dress,  nightclub outfit or an outfit for a tropical vacation

Of course, these! Who would want to wear a costume or beach dress in the office? These are not welcome in the office environment and people will only think that you are craving for attention. Unless there is an activity that requires you to wear such (i.e. theme days), then you can wear them. Change back to your normal clothes the day after.

5.  Anything that is intended for the gym, music festival or college quad

These attires (e.g. ripped jeans, yoga pants and graphic tees) are also a no-go. Even if these clothes might look casual and appropriate for every person to wear, these clothes are still not the type that you should wear at work. You can definitely wear these kinds of outfits in the appropriate time and place, but not on your place of work.

6.  Anything ‘Working Girl’ looks

Just because we are now working girls, it does not mean that you are going to look like one. Stylish people usually say that the ‘working girl’ look (i.e. shoulder pads, loose trousers, etc.) is an old school way of doing fashion. I bet you will definitely agree with this one since we are now living in a modern world.

There are actually a lot of ways on how you can still achieve outfits that will make you look professional without pulling the nerdy, ‘working girl’ outfit. Try to be updated. Well, you have to know how to mix and match your clothes from your closet for you to pull off just the right corporate attire.

7.  Wearing flip-flops

When it comes to wearing the appropriate attire, choosing what to wear from the top to bottom should be considered properly. Wearing flip-flops at work is outrightly forbidden.  If you are not comfortable wearing closed shoes, try wearing an open-toe shoes or sandals that have straps. In this way, your overall attire will still be decent to look at.

8. Tattoos and Piercings

Choosing the right attire does not end up in choosing the right clothes. It also applies on how you present yourself, which should neat and clean. Wearing of visible tattoos and piercing at work is a sign of unprofessionalism. Although some of you here might consider these as an art, flaunting them at work is not necessary at all. If you have a tattoo, cover it with the appropriate attire when you are at work. Also, take your piercings off when you are at work.

We definitely understand that choosing the right office outfit is not that easy to do. There are certain things to consider before deciding what to wear at work. Despite the many outfits that you can choose from, know that each outfit must be worn at the right time and place. If you do not want to be a laughingstock, wear the desired and most appropriate office attire.

Finding Flattering Clothes for Your Body Type

Dressing up is fun. It makes you appear polished, neat, girly and trendy. However, no matter how hard we try, there are just some clothes that do not flatter our figure. Though we do try to make it work best to our advantage, we would all soon come to the conclusion that there are some clothes that don’t complement our body type. A reality is that no two women on earth have roughly the same shape. They might be in the same size, but never in the same shape. Such an understatement to compartmentalize body types into fat, normal and thin! Newsflash people, people are not manufactured in factories that we can categorize them into three extremely cookie-cutter body types.


People, particularly women, are built differently. Though men’s bodies are just as diverse as women’s, this article aims to focus on women solely. This is because between males and females, the latter gets more clothing options. As a result, women would have more variety in choosing what to wear and have a lot more fun in mixing and matching. It is a common knowledge that women all over the world have a lot more fun in dressing up much more than their male counterparts.


However, as fun as dressing up may seem, this can get rather disappointing and disheartening once you find the perfect dress only to find out it looks absolutely horrid on you. It is especially heartbreaking to discover that the dress you saved a lot of cash for turns out to be extremely unflattering to your figure. Not only do you have a dress which you would not be able to wear under any circumstances, but you have also managed to waste valuable monetary resources.


This article aims to eradicate that pressing predicament and help you keep a tighter hold on your buck. As though women may come in different shapes and sizes, there is always a dress appropriate for every shape as well as for every size. It is only a matter of finding out what size and shape your body is and selecting the suitable assortment of outfits for yourself. What this article would do is to help you select various apparel for the body type that you have. It also aims to tell you which type of clothes would work and the clothes that would not. Rounded, pear-shaped, hourglass, plump and etc., this article will surely help you find the perfect clothes that match you body and built.


For Pear Shaped Ladies


A body shaped like a pear has the characteristics of having a wider lower body than your upper body. In other words, you have wider hips than shoulders. Your bottom is also well rounded and your waist, well-defined. Perhaps your best assets would be your shoulders, your entire torso, and your flat stomach. A few notable celebrities who have pear shaped bodies are Eva Mendes, Kim Kardashian, Katherine Heigl and Jennifer Love-Hewitt. Your fashion goals should be to accentuate your waist and arms, give more volume to your shoulders and upper body and minimize or diminish your hips.


If you have a body shaped like a pear much like Katherine Heigl, then you would most likely want to minimize your lower half and draw the attention upward. So, the apparel which you should try are A-line skirts to camouflage your wide hips and pants skirts and dresses to balance your hips. Additionally, you can go for boat neck tops and square cowl necklines. You can also wear strapless dresses to show off your arms. Ruffles will complement your body type as well and so do jackets that hit right above the waist. As for your shoes, you would like to invest in footwear that are pointy-toed as this will give your legs the illusion of being long.


CARDINAL DON’T:  Do not wear clothing that would bring attention to the hips and thighs such as print skirts and cargo pants.


For wedge shaped women


A wedge-shaped body, also known as the inverted triangle, is defined by a broad chest and wide shoulders (in large proportions) and narrow waist and hips. Your best asset is most notably your legs. Thus, your fashion ideals should be to emphasize your lower body while softening your shoulders and upper body. Popular actresses with this type of body are Teri Hatcher, Demi Moore, and Renee Zellwegger. Having a wedge-shaped body mean you want attention drawn downward of your body to the narrower parts such as your hips and your waist. To achieve this, you should wear bright bottoms, full skirts, wide leg pants. Do wear tops that call attention to your waistline. Your body will also look absolutely fabulous with high-waisted styles and clothes that create the illusion of a waist.


CARDINAL DON’T: Do not wear boat neckline and spaghetti strap tops.


For females with rectangular shapes


Females with rectangular body shapes have waists, hips and shoulder widths that are similar. They are usually on the slimmer side and have an athletic look. Their notable assets are their arms and legs. They also do not have to downplay any body features. They do, however, need to create curves and show off their slender arms and legs. Actresses with this body type are Natalie Portman, Hilary Swank, Kate Hudson and Cameron Diaz.


Should you possess this type of body, you should invest in scoop necks and sweetheart tops in order to create curves. Additionally, wearing long jackets would give you a leaner look. Tops with collars and ruffles will add volume to your chest as well. Wearing a bra that will make you make the most of what you have is also a plus. Layering clothes will help you create dimensions. Hence, experiment with fun and colorful bottoms. Try to wear dresses with cinches on the sides.


CARDINAL DON’T: Do not wear something that overwhelms you.


For womenfolk with an hourglass frame


Women with this body shape boast sexy and alluring curves. Their shoulders and hips are similar in proportion and are accentuated by a tiny waist. Fashion goals for this type of body type should be to show off curves without exaggerating it too much. People in popular culture who have this body type are Scarlett Johansson, Halle Berry, Salma Hayek and Beyonce.


If you have an hourglass body shape, wearing a good bra to showcase your bust is a good start. Wearing fitted dresses is also a good idea. Wearing a belt will help you draw attention to your hourglass shape. Moreover, wrap dresses, high-waisted skirts to show off hips, thin lightweight fabrics and skinny jeans and straight leg jeans work best for this body type.


CARDINAL DON’T: Do not hide your curves underneath baggy clothing. Show them off!


In essence, it does not really matter whether you have an hourglass body shape or a pear one, what matters is finding the perfect clothes that would complement your body type. You may invest in thousands of pesos in clothes that are in style and would still look frumpy in comparison to how you saw it worn by the model.


The key here is to accentuate your best features and downplay the rest. After all, when we are dressing up, don’t we all love to showcase our assets? So if you do, start finding the best clothes just for you!

Starting Up a Fashion Business Without Acquiring Debts (Or Less)

fashion copy

Creating a fashion business, among others, is a brilliant idea especially if you are passionate about creating a chain of excellent products for your consumers. However, any type of business would mean having enough capital to start up. Sometimes, it happens to become one of the initial hindrances in the process even though you have an idea brewing up in your mind. Say for example, you wanted to invest on having wholesale urban clothing or wholesale street wear business, it would take a lot of research and time for that, not mentioning the funds you need in general. These are just some of the technical factors you have to consider in creating your dream business.


What you need?


You would need to estimate the amount of money that you need to use in order to know what other things you could do in order to acquire enough funds. You might have some money saved but that might not be enough. This is not something to discourage you but these are important things to keep in mind. So as a suggestion, here are a few things to consider in creating that fashion business:


A physical store. Not mentioning the labor that you would need in order to construct your own building. This would also mean having to find the space perfect for your business. It is not an easy fete but you will get by once you know the things that are needs to be focused on.


The importance of having a physical store is for your customers to directly keep in touch with you and see your items if they like them or not. Nothing compares to buying clothes if you were able to try on them and check if they are a good match to you. As an entrepreneur, you would keep in mind your customer’s comfort as well.


An online alternative. Setting up an online alternative for your physical store is also a good option since most people are now hooked up to online shopping or would initially visit your website for immediate updates. This would also be a good move in order to gain followers.


By having a website, this would also be a good use in marketing your business. Meaning, you can attract more customers from your marketing collaterals and may save your company from the budget constraints that you might be facing once you have started the business.


Staff. No matter how small or big your business is, you would need manpower to oversee your business and at the same time, attend to your customer’s needs and requests.


Hire staffers who are honest and polite enough and have customer service ideals. Perhaps you can ask some friends who can help you with finding the right people to man your store. You don’t have to be at the store all the time that is why it is important to have trustworthy people to handle the business for you whenever you are not around.


Customers. They are the reason why you put up a business (aside from the fact that you wanted to venture on the fashion industry, share your knowledge and of course, earn money). Your clients are important in keeping up with your business’s life because without the, who would buy your products?


It is also important to satisfy your client’s needs, that is why proper customer service is a must. You also need to have loyal customers who will continue to patronize you, at the same time, help you survive the business despite the competition that you might be experiencing in the industry.


Got the gist? Therefore, in order for you to be able to survive the business and start it up with the funds that you have (or the ones you will still be acquiring), the abovementioned things are important. Just as important as how you are going to deal with them and turn them into realizations.


By knowing your needs, you would initially know what to do.


What to do?


Again, to make things work, you should know what you need. And if you have already jot down a list of your needs, you would not want to leave them hanging, right? You have to find ways on how to make things work. In short, doing things you ought to do to answer those needs.


Below are some suggested ways for you to be able to gain enough resources and would gain you enough funds or minimize the use of it.


Research. By researching, this would mean knowing your niche market. Research for demographics and other stats that would help you find ways on how you could upscale at the same time, save up from what should not be done. Since you are planning to have a fashion business, keep in mind that there are various markets that you will be stumbling upon with.


To make this easier for you, find a market that would suit to your specialty, say for example you are targeting professional hippies who wear street wear clothes. This would give you an idea of focusing on wholesale urban clothing, wholesale urban jackets, wholesale jeans, wholesale tees and the like.


You should have something unique. This may be quite a tad of difficulty because as we all know, the industry is so tight and the competition is so up to the scale. Yet there are still other variables that you can focus on. You may be selling wholesale street wear yet the items you sell are also one of a kind.


Online marketing can help you do this and doing excellent marketing strategies to prove that you have unique items at hand.


Ask feedback. Feedback is necessary to know if you are keeping up in the game. If you would need to push more or just to keep it steady. This would also mean that you need to know from people with experience how things should be.


Talk to experts. By doing so, it would help you save up much effort and money from doing strategies that can be done alternatively. Ask them things about dealing with money matters and how you could live up with the challenges.


Find Investors. Or business partners. If you are confident enough, you can ask some friends to invest in your company and perhaps, you can run the business hand in hand. This would also open up for more opportunities and ideas in expanding the business in the future.


Study the industry. Continue to study the trends and the updates involving the industry you are in. Be a game changer. Start to learn things by reading magazine, knowing what your competitors are into and how you could up keep with them. By doing so and by acing the game, it would not only save you from such efforts wasted but also, help you save up the money you should be using for other expenditures.


How about you? Do you have any ideas to share? The comment section is welcome for you!

Why do you need to excel with your customer relations?


It is important to excel in this field because of the following reasons:


  • Clients look for trustworthy retailers/suppliers.


Tell me if I’m wrong but if you buy yourself a pair of jeans, you would likely want to be assisted by those who are in the store and perhaps, give you some tidbits of what looks good or not. After all you are the customer. You buy clothes from them because you trust their brand and perhaps their service too.


To retailers and suppliers, it is your job to make your clients’ experience satisfying and fulfilling. This would not only mean keeping up with their demands but also letting them know how much you care for them by creating a valuable service and customer relations. Clients trust you because, from the first place, they know you can help them with their dilemmas.


  • Clients are keen with easy dealerships and processing.


For entrepreneurs, it is important to make ease at transactions with your clients. Dealing with client orders (especially those who are running online stores), it is important that you deal with your clients properly. They are not only paying for the trust that they have for you as a seller but also, they want proper service from you.


And as a resource, and perhaps, the solution to their problems, you must keep up with them and guide them every step of the way. From purchasing an item to payment terms; shipping, and of course, to the feedback part. It is important to know this portion because it is what runs your business too. As long as your client feedbacks are okay, for sure the business will also flourish.


  • Clients are stakeholders and they have a say with what you are.


Whenever a customer buys things from you or asks for your services, it is important to keep in mind that in way or another, they are your stakeholders. Why? It’s because of the client feedback. This means they have a say about how well your services are. With this, it is clear to say that they have an interest in your products and/or services. If they feel you are doing well with your services and that your products are all right, then it would be good points for you and your business because that would mean more customers and deals and collaborations to come.


  • Clients are brand influencers.


Take for example, when a customer comes into your retail store or visits your shop online, and buys merchandise from you, and they have been satisfied with what they got, eventually they will have the chance to recommend and endorse you and your store to their friends.


Much more effect would come if say for example, a known person gets your attention and likes your products too, and by chance would tweet or make a status out of it on their social media accounts. This would create fuss (and traffic to your site), which happens to become a result from the instant advert. This happens because of the impact that influenced a lot of people through social media and the like.


By knowing what matters, how should you relate to your customers?


This time, ask yourself: how to make that ‘customer relations’ a success? Perhaps there have been various insights that you have researched to enable this goal a notable success. And for the record, the following are the common facts about customers and ways a business must attain to serve the purpose of pursuing that dream that is customer relations.

  • Anticipate Customer Needs


By anticipating your customers’ needs, it would mean being able to keep ahead of them. Research on what they will need according to what is trending and what their usual demands are. Anticipating is a key for a consistent customer satisfaction because without it, you would not know what to sell in the first place, right?


Putting up a business (say a fashion business) is not only about making and earning money for your self. It would also mean being able to help alleviate your customers’ simple (and often difficult) problems.


  • Be On Their Shoes


Always place yourself in their shoes. This goes hand in hand with anticipating what your clients’ needs are. You may ask questions like, “What can help them improve their lives?” or to be specific (if you are a fashion brand), “What new can I offer my customers?” Think about your competitors too, you can’t control them if they will find more options. In fact, your customers have the say which is which, but if you know what to offer and what would benefit them from choosing you instead of your competitors, then that is a good start.


  • Take A Good Look To What They’re Buying


This would not entirely mean stalking, but make it to a point that you will know what they are interested in. One example of this is when the ‘selfie’ trend boomed. It gave an opportunity for a lot of sellers to take on what their customers want. And so the ‘selfie stick’ emerged. This was a very huge craze as it fits the lifestyle of the many especially that smartphones are hip right now.


From the example, it is important to learn what they are into and perhaps, another idea from what they have right now will emerge. Be innovative and always make your collection interesting.


Creating a feedback or survey would also help to know what they want to expect from you and what they can buy from you since there is already the notion of trust in your relationship.


  • Understand Their Demands


By this, it would mean making an effort to get into the core of their needs. Understanding would not only mean keeping up with them, but also accepting their requests, which can be beneficial to everyone.


Going beyond your limits is also something your customers would be amazed to know about you. This would make the relationship with your customers more intact because simply, they are happy and satisfied customers.


  • Learn With Them


A business has its own set of ways to learn and acquire knowledge and techniques. But what makes it more interesting is that when a business is open to new ideas from their customers. Suggestions are often keys to attaining this goal. Learning from and with your customers is somewhat a healthy practice because it shows that you are a transparent and open-minded business.


However, in a business, there are criticisms that may arise yet make these as opportunities for you to grasp what they are trying to tell you. Make this an advantage for you to improve and never forget thanking them for letting you know. After that and if you have called to their suggestions, perhaps they will be able to see the improvements and ideas that came from them for the betterment of your business.

Reasons for Buying Wholesale Deréon Products

Hollywood seems to be an elusive dream. Thanks to celebrities who are launching their own clothing lines, getting closer the stars doesn’t seem so elusive at all. In 2004, Beyoncé Knowles, together with her mother Tina Knowles, launched the House of Deréon, a ready-to-wear line that combines “sidewalk and catwalk” and holds the tagline ‘Couture.Kick.Soul.’ ‘Couture’ is for Tina, who is a stylist. ‘Kick’ is for Beyoncé while ‘Soul’ is for Agnéz, Beyoncé’s maternal grandmother.

Why buy wholesale Deréon products

Deréon items are widely available online. However, it is very difficult to discern which ones are original and which are not. For one, you can buy original Deréons from its website. In this case, however, Deréon’s websites are down, so those who want to buy the items may have to do a deep search to find what they are looking for more so if you are looking for wholesale Deréon products.

Good thing there are many wholesalers who stock their warehouses with these Beyoncé-designed products. Whether it’d be tees, bottoms, dresses, jackets, shoes and handbags or even plus sizes, buying them in bulk is always easy on your pocket. For instance, wholesalers are selling Deréon plus size hooded bubble jackets with faux fur for only $58 instead of $110 which is the original price. That’s a whopping 42% discount!

While the items are low-priced, Deréon products are manufactured at high standards. Think of it this way: would Beyoncé and her sister, Solange, carry low-quality, poorly-designed handbags or totes? Not! The head-to-toe products are above the industry quality standards they collectively give ‘urban chic’ a new definition.

Not to mention, wholesale clothes are usually transported from the factory or warehouse to the shipping destination. They won’t look stale or weathered when you get your hands on them. The difference in quality is evident on first glimpse and when you touch the item for the first time. Remember, whatever you are buying, you must not sacrifice the quality in lieu with quantity or worse, price. That’s the #1 rule.

Deréon products are one of the most commonly faked urban clothing brands. You’ll know a pair of shoes is fake when it doesn’t bear the House of Deréon Clothing logo. It is easy to spot the brand’s fleur de lis logo which is often embroidered, embossed or flanked onto the product. House of Deréon also uses the agu logo from time to time. The emphasis is on buying from certified wholesalers who are only selling authentic product and not replicas or knockoffs. Why buy Deréon items with inferior quality at low-cost rates when you can buy the original items at same low prices? It doesn’t make sense.

Take advantage of the low prices because lower prices could mean more items for you. Wholesale Deréon shirts, for instance, are sold at $54 per pack. Each pack contains six t-shirts in different colors. Each shirt actually costs $18. Imagine how much you can save and possibly earn if you buy several pre-packed shirts and resell them at a slightly lower price than its original price. The sales potential of Deréon products is very high with Beyoncé at the helm. Indeed, you’d get more bang for your buck, purchasing various items at the same clothing budget than otherwise.

Just because they are sold wholesale doesn’t mean you cannot access all House of Deréon’s products including the bags, shoes and jewelries. You can choose and purchase from the clothing line’s entire collection or stock and have them shipped directly to your door even from a wholesaler. If the wholesaler has it, you can order it instantly.

Like other urban clothing lines, Deréon has to remain competitive. Even wholesales are kept up-to-date by stocking new arrivals. With House of Deréon, buying an entire wardrobe at really low prices is possible. For example, options for jeans are varied. There are stonewashed, blue, white, black, brown, darker hues in cropped Bermuda, Capri, boot cut and straight leg styles. There are also high tops, heels and boots you can pack your wardrobe with.

Perhaps, the goodness of buying wholesale Deréon is sitting back and letting the order come to you. You can expect the items on your mailbox in a few days. In fact, some wholesalers are implementing same-day shipping policy. Depending on where you live, you can expect your order in 2-3 days. Just make sure that the wholesaler is shipping in your country and that you have all the requirements to make the transaction as smooth as possible.

A word of caution for resellers

While at it, beware of some wholesalers that tag their dresses, handbags and shoes for sale as Deréon when in fact they are just using the brand name to make a sale. Some wholesalers even put their supply ability (i.e. 1,000 pieces per day) that only indicates they are making replicas. Deréons are manufactured outside the US, but these are only available in the US and European market. So, make sure that you are buying from legit wholesalers so you’d know you are buying authentic Deréons.

How creative can your T-shirt get?


Loads of apparels have been trending these days, not mentioning the number of new emerging brands that quietly appear from nowhere. And because of the demand for various fashion items, comes wholesaling. Wholesale T-shirts, among a few of the many categories that would fall under wholesale, are the usual items that, by hook or by crook, would sell out.


T-shirts are one of the usual and often overrated fashion pieces one may be in a possession of. You may even have a handful of those since you were young, and up to now, you still have those in your closet. Yet, you find them very useful especially on most of your casual routines.


As comfy as they may seem, t-shirts are very easy to find. And you can wear them anytime. Whether you go on a summer vacation, a trip to the beach, watching your favorite band on concerts, or just chilling around the neighborhood, t-shirts are one of the trusty outfits you can wear. Not mentioning how it can also set a trend if you happen to be too creative.


From its origin, t-shirts are made of light, inexpensive fabric and were easy to clean. During the Spanish-America war, the U.S. Navy began using them as undergarments, which was noted to be the earliest t-shirt dated.


It became then a stand-alone, outerwear garment, and a couple of which being worn often by boys while doing chores or playing outside. It then eventually became as a general-purpose casual clothing wear. Versions such as crew neck and V-neck shirts were then available in many designs and fabric types.


When it comes to fashion, there is a wide range of choices that you can go with just a t-shirt. It may be customized, hand-painted, dyed or sewn. But you can always go for shopping out well-designed items among wholesale T-shirts stores. With this in mind, you can still personalize a look and make it fashionable. It matters on how creative you can go with just a plain white shirt.


As they were known as originally worn as undershirts, these garments are now frequently worn as the only piece of clothing on the top half of the body, other than possibly a brassiere for women, or rarely, a vest.


T-shirts also have become a medium for self-expression and advertising, with any imaginable combination of words, art and photographs, which is promptly done up to now.


With it making a casual affair of sorts, fashion houses and designers have shifted to maximizing t-shirt production by adding a taste of what the current trend is. There came a time that t-shirts were better-looking if they were ripped or torn, or even cut. Different groups of people have different approaches to t-shirt styling and it happens until now.


The emergence of street and urban wear is just an example that there is a community that thrives to uphold a certain kind of fashion statement. Street wears as what is known, stemmed out from the streets that includes a lifestyle of surfing or skateboarding. Urban wear on the other hand, emerged from the culture of hip-hop. Both appear to appeal to the young and the artist that have influenced the audience.


As the years gone by, the use of t-shirts as a medium for a fashion statement to flourish is still on up to now. And up to date, different fashion approaches have developed into distinct style combined with individuality.


Knowing that this has become a norm also emerged more t-shirt manufacturers. There happened to be a lot of t-shirt brands that eventually began to occur. Businesses have been thriving sporadically as the trend and the demands of the society increased. Wholesale t-shirt brands are now everywhere, making the clothing industry booming.


Production has been constant, and different styles have been introduced. Not only catering to men and women but also to different age groups that are normally in need of something to wear. Teens, kids and some other groups are also part of the market, albeit the fashion statement. Wholesale t-shirt businesses are now conquering not only to benefit those trend-setters, but also everyone.


Moreover, t-shirts are fashion pieces that both men and women can enjoy; in anyway they want to use it. There are T-shirts that are comfortably worn tight or some people want it to hang loose. It actually depends on one’s fashion preference, whether you are inclined to hipster, rock and roll or hip-hop fashion statements, it does not matter. But it could get cooler if there is something interesting about your t-shirt that anyone would want to stare at it and ask you where you got it.


The use of social media and living in the computer age has also helped spread the idea of branding one’s own creativity and style. Emerging styles, trends and themes of different seasons keeps designers, shoppers, bloggers and the rest of the world up on their toes.
