Fashion Dress Up Games – The Games For Girls

When we talk about gaming in the computer world, there are many of those. New ones come out all the time adding to the library of already available millions. All these games are of different types and the genre of games defines it’s audience. Not all types of games are preferred by everybody and so there is an audience for a genre. Like for example young kids may prefer kids and cartoon games and adults, on the other hand, may prefer other face paced action genres like shooting and racing. Similarly the choices may differ between boys and girls. Boys may prefer different games than what girls normally like. Girls might have completely different choices when it comes to games. Whatever their choices are, it is understood that any game according to their demands are readily available.

It is a known fact that boys and girls definitely have a different choice when it comes to electronic games. While boys may like high-speed action, racing and fighting genres of games, girls on the other hand, may prefer lighter and less-violent games. Not all girls have such choices but most of the girls are known to love different games than what the boys prefer. While there might be some hardcore girl games fighting up to the action in the games, there are more girls who prefer skill-based, fashion-based and other simulation games which require creativity. One of such type of games which are definitely created with girls in mind are the fashion based dress up games.

Fashion dress up games are those types of games which require a bit of fashion sense to play. In these, the player must involve in different activities to dress up a model and even do the makeup as well. These games typically have a male or female model while some might have fictional cartoon characters and even pets. There will also be a collection of clothes and outfits which exactly fit the model. The players can try these outfits on the model and see which design and color suits the best. A correct combination of the tops and the bottoms will reveal a very eye-catching overall dress up. Then the players can also select the shoes and other accessories like jewellery, bags, purses, hats, glasses and so on. A selection of hairstyle should add the final touch to make the model look quite splendid.

In addition to the dress up games, there are those which go further deep into the fashion world. There are those which even allow the players to do the makeup like apply some foundation on the faces of models making them look better and neater, wash their hair, color their eyes, fix their eyelashes and also select a lipstick color. Players might also be able to do pedicures and manicures for the models and also polish their nails making them look dashing and eye-catching. All these activities require a lot of creativity, fashion exploration, color combination skill and also some patience. After all the hard work of fashion designing, trial and error and some self judgment, the player will be able to view their final fashion creation. If the player is not satisfied she can easily try out new looks.

So, these games require the players to use all of the fashion skills in order to create a magnificent model; but despite the fashion knowledge, one can easily try them out. Not only girls are meant to play these but these games are loved by all who love fashion. Even boys can explore their fashion skills.

One can explore and dress up models from fictional beauties to the real world celebrities. So get your ticket to the fashion world and explore your fashion creativity with these dress up games.

Fashion Dressing For Success

Being in the fashion industry you would think that all the men and woman I meet have an amazing sense of style. Well you would be wrong. You should see some of the get ups that come into my building. Yes, you can take more risks when you dress in my business, but, some people look like they have lost their minds. Sometimes it isn’t just that they look odd, but they are just clueless. From one extreme to another I have seen it all.

The first thing I am going to talk about sounds like a no brain-er. But, many of us have made these faux pas’. You must always be well-groomed. That means clean and styled hair (no roots). Make up that doesn’t overpower and refresh your lipstick (if you are a woman) throughout the day. Make sure you have manicured nails and toes, no chipped polish and no art on your nails. Leave the rhinestones for the weekends. Clothes should be clean and in good repair. Hem skirts and pants so that they do not drag. No flip-flops to work (this is a personal peeve of mine). Perfume must be subtle. You do not want anyone distracted by poor grooming. One of the things I suggest investing in is a good haircut.

Another aspect of dressing well is focusing on fit and proportion. When buying clothing it is important to buy clothes for the size we are and not the size we want to be. A basic blazer can add a lot of punch to an outfit if it fits you right. Find a good tailor to help you with this. Everyone’s body is unique. There is no way for a fashion line to make their fit perfect for each body. That is why a good tailor will make a difference by shortening sleeve lengths, hemming skirts, nipping in waists. Well-fitting clothes really look expensive. This is what can make mediocre – special!. When buying a piece of clothing, always buy it to fit the largest part of your body and then the seamstress can adjust accordingly. Also bring the shoes you intend to wear with the piece if it is a skirt or pant. Proportion is also crucial. You do not want to wear a long blazer with a long skirt, all over tight clothing, or all baggy styles. Fashion magazines, catalogues, and the internet can show you what shapes work best together. How clothing fits and works together is as important as the pieces you buy. So always remember fit and proportion when putting together an outfit.

It is now time to build the foundation of your wardrobe. These are the key pieces that you will build around. Make sure that these items are the best quality you can afford. They should be modern silhouettes, but not so trendy that they will be out of style in a season

1. Classic blazer in a neutral color

2. Black pants

3. White button front shirt

4. Black dress

5. Trench coat

6. Pencil skirt

Build your clothing around the core pieces you have bought. Read magazines such as Lucky and In Style which show you practical ways to put outfits together. Go on-line to web sites such as Ann Taylor and J Crew which also show outfits. Download, or tear out photos of looks that you like. You can take them to the store as inspiration for how to put your outfit together. Also when you get to the store there will be displays that will give you further inspiration. Take a friend that you trust who will give you unbiased advice as you try on different items. Then choose the pieces you want to try on. Be adventurous. Try on lots of things and experiment. Try on pieces you may not normally consider. I take my 18-year-old daughter shopping all the time. She likes my taste and I am her wing-man of choice. I always have her try on things that are different from her traditional wardrobe and many times she likes it and puts together something new. My latest look for her is shorts with tights and boots. Love the look for college students. You should be looking to flesh out your wardrobe. Don’t feel you have to do this all in one day. It is a work in progress and you will always be shopping. Once a month should do it. You will need more skirts and pants, probably 5 -10 tops/jackets/cardigans and an extra dress or two. When putting together an outfit, use one basic, one wow piece, and a jacket or cardigan to complete your outfit. Also remember that one item can be worked in different ways. You can buy a pant that you use to go with a cardigan set, blouse and jacket, or a sweater. Go shopping and have fun.

My favorite part of the outfit: is shoes!! I love shoes: boots, flats, platforms, pumps, all of it. Shoes can really make a statement about you. This is where I like to splurge. I buy good shoes mostly, but I do throw in some inexpensive flats from Payless for walking in the street. Working in Manhattan the sidewalks can really trash your good shoes not to mention your feet and back. Payless has really cute flats and it beats walking to work in sneakers (hate that!). I am really careful with my shoes, having the bottom tips and heal lifts replaced often and constantly polished. I have a pair of Dolce & Gabbana sling back black pumps that I bought on sale for $350. Sounds expensive? Not really when you consider that I have them for several years, wear them all the time, and they make the outfit. If you amortize the cost over wearings it probably has cost me 25 cents a wearing. Good value right? So get some good pairs that you can add to your assortment. You need to own a black pump, a great pair of dressy knee-high boots, a ballet flat, and a pop color shoe (maybe red) as your basic assortment. Of course you can add to that and have some fun. I have a leopard print pump and platform booties that I love.

As I have been writing this, I realize that this is a lot of clothing to purchase all at once. So my recommendation is to start with 10 easy pieces and build your wardrobe from that. Start with the core foundation pieces and a pair of pumps with some cool t-shirts and it is a good beginning. Then you can build around them.

I want to mention undergarments. Sometimes an outfit can be lost due to poorly fitting bras and underwear. If you haven’t been professionally fitted for a bra in the past 6 months go to a department store and have someone do that for you. Our bodies’ change so what might have worked last year could not work this year. Also, many women don’t know how to fit themselves. You could be wearing a 38C but really need a 36D. A professional is trained on how a bra should fit. Get a nude color to wear under white tops. Not a white bra which will show. Of course you will also need black. I am kind of basic myself and do not buy colorful bras. I would rather spend my wardrobe dollars elsewhere. Your undergarments should be smooth; you do not want to see any bumps or seams through your clothes. The best invention for women is spanx and their knock offs. This will smooth out your body so you do not have a muffin top or a bulging tummy. No more girdles, this the new shapewear.

My mother has tons of handbags. She has all sorts of styles and colors. When she dresses, she changes her bag to match her outfit. I, on the other hand, do not have the time or the desire to do that. Here is where I cut corners in my wardrobe. I buy the best neutral handbag I can afford for the season. I make sure I buy it on sale or at an outlet store. Then I wear it every day. I like to buy good quality handbags as I like what they say about me. Also I never seek to match my bag to my shoes (unless they are both black). It is a very dated look.

Accessories – the frosting on the cake. Accessory designers are doing such good work that sometimes the fakes look like the real thing. I buy accessories that are inexpensive but add punch to an outfit. You can take the most basic of outfits and add a great neck piece with earrings and wow! When dressing, at the very least you should put on earrings. You can then add a bunch of bracelets or maybe a group of chains around your neck. A great silver or gold cuff is terrific with a dress. It is the rare person who can pull off earrings, rings, and bracelets all at once, so try not to overdo. Also not every piece should be big and bold. One big bold piece in an outfit is enough.

It is time to pull it all together. Try to plan your outfits over the weekend for the coming week. Check out the weather so you can plan your clothing accordingly. Start with the basic pieces of your look, the dress, skirt, pant or suit. Add a top to go with it. Then you put on the top piece which is a cardigan or jacket (if your outfit isn’t a suit). Do a basic with a wow piece. They can’t all be wow and if they are all basic make sure the accessory pieces are the wow. Always try new combinations for all your pieces to keep the looks fresh.

Good luck in Dressing for Success!

I like the fun fashion dress up games that actually involve real models and real designer apparel and accessories.

There are so many different styles to experiment with, including dressy, classic, trendy, glamorous, formal and much more.

Fashion dress up games are family friendly, although some are made for older girls while others are made for younger girls.

Other than that, there are really no downsides to these games, except that your fashionista will want to play all the time. While it may not seem like an educational experience, the girl who sits at the computer dressing virtual models may someday be part of a major fashion house, designing clothes for real models.

Fashionable Dresses for Younger Girls

Finding dresses for young girls can be quite the nightmare particularly if your child comes with you on the shopping trip. Many cuts and styles of girls dresses are overly provocative being far too short and with very little material on top. Unfortunately, it is often to these adult style dresses that young girls flock and many a Saturday afternoon is spent arguing with your child over the suitability of their clothing.

Clearly a responsible parent will not allow their child to wear such revealing clothing yet the ensuing arguments may prove too much. How do you find a suitable balance that is both accepted by the parent and the child alike? Read on for style advice that strikes a happy medium.

The following trends are all popular now and you can convince your child that these dresses are suitable simply by showing them the fashion magazines. They will see that the celebrities to whom they look up are wearing similar adult versions of the following girls dresses and with a bit of luck your child will feel better with their choice.

The Military Trend
This is very popular now, and before you go running for cover, the military trend does not involve dressing up in an army uniform in the same way that little boys would love!

The military trend is all about tailored clothing, particularly the jackets. Olive greens, khaki colours and desert yellows are all appropriate colours to pull-off this trend. Choose longer style dresses with a camouflage pattern in order to strike a balance between young and old.

Purple
By way of colour this season, purple is very popular as are camel colours and reds. Given that the Royal Wedding is just around the corner purple will prove a very regal colour in which to celebrate this momentous occasion.

Ruffled Shoulders and Textured Dresses
We have seen the layering of fabrics frequently on catwalks around the world of late in particular the use of sheer materials over a non-sheer base. Girls dresses in such a design will prove perfect as they cover modesty and yet are exceptionally fashionable – most young girls will love these dresses.

Patterns
Popular patterns this season include animal print and floral detailing. Floral prints will prove very popular amongst young girls because as most people are aware we girls cannot get enough of flowers which to us represent natural beauty in its purest form. When choosing floral detailing, opt for subtle understated designs as these are the most fashionable at present.

Animal prints are a little on the wild side, and are best avoided by children under that age of 12. If you do opt to buy your child a dress with an animal print, make sure that the design is very subtle incorporate animal print gently for example using a scarf never dress from head-to-toe in an animal print – however old you are!
