Lydia Forson rocks it while Ghana’s Lady Gaga gets the stick on Fashion 101

Published

fashion 101 7When it comes to making good use of her contours, and making fashion sense with her plus-size body, Ghanaian actress Lydia Forson does it so well. Thus it wasn’t surprising that she received good reviews the ‘Star Style’ panel on Fashion 101 last weekend. Also receiving the thumbs-up was Deborah Vanessa Owusu-Bonsu, fashion designer, video vixen, TV presenter and younger sister of the free-spirited Ghanaian singer/rapper, Wanlov. Debbie is often on point when it comes to choosing the right outfit for a perfect outing. “Once a hip-hoper, always a hip-hoper” was the conclusion of the panel members when Hip hop artist Demond Blackmore, otherwise known as D Black, made an appearance on the show this weekend. Actress turned singer, Diamond also known as Ghana’s Lady Gaga couldn’t impress the panel with her flamboyant style of dressing, as a sequence dress which she wore to an awards nomination party, barely made the cut, save for a tiny detail. Other celebrities who made appearances on last weekend’s episode included Denise of Vodafone Icons fame, Efya, who for the second time failed to impress the panel members, Jocelyn Dumas, D-Money and Captain Planet of the hiplife trio 4×4.]]>

Reviving the 1920s vintage dress: How to achieve a modern chic look

Published

on

MARY ART DECO FRINGE DRESS IN BLACK GOLD

The 1920s was a decade of great change, both socially and fashion-wise. Women were breaking free from traditional societal norms and embracing a more liberated lifestyle. This new way of thinking was reflected in the fashion of the time, with shorter hemlines, looser clothing, and a focus on comfort. The iconic flapper dress, characterized by its dropped waist and fringe, became a symbol of the era, and the 1920s vintage dresses in general, were a reflection of the new found freedom and liberation of women at the time.

Today, the 1920s vintage dress look is experiencing a resurgence in popularity. Many fashion designers and brands are incorporating elements of the 1920s aesthetic into their modern collections. So how can you incorporate this vintage look into your own wardrobe?

First, start with the silhouette. The 1920s was all about a slimmer, more streamlined look. To achieve this, look for dresses with a dropped waist and a straight, A-line skirt. These dresses will give you the illusion of a longer, leaner figure.

Next, consider the materials and prints. The 1920s was a time of great experimentation in textile design. Look for dresses made from silk, satin, or velvet, and adorned with geometric patterns and Art Deco-inspired designs.

Accessories are also key to achieving the 1920s vintage look. A simple pair of pearl earrings or a beaded necklace will add a touch of elegance. A cloche hat or a feather headband will complete the look.

When it comes to shoes, choose a pair of T-strap heels or Mary Jane pumps. These styles were popular in the 1920s and will give your outfit a vintage feel.

It’s also important to remember that the 1920s vintage dress look can be adapted to suit different occasions. A simple shift dress can be dressed up with statement jewelry and heels for a formal event, or dressed down with a denim jacket and flats for a more casual look.

Finally, don’t be afraid to mix vintage and modern pieces. The 1920s vintage dress look can be updated and made more contemporary by pairing it with a modern accessory, such as a pair of sneakers or a leather jacket.

Overall, the 1920s vintage dress look is a timeless and versatile style that can be easily incorporated into modern fashion. With a few key elements, such as a dropped waist silhouette, geometric patterns, and the right accessories, you can achieve a vintage look that is both stylish and on-trend. So why not give it a try and see how you can make this vintage look work for you!
