postheadericon Casual Tops – Spring Sweaters For Women

No matter what your personal style is, casual tops and sweaters are a fashion essential we all must have at least one of, but probably a lot more than this! What’s great about sweaters and fashion tops is that they are flattering for just about every body type and can be used as layering during the cooler spring weather. Don’t be led to believe that once the snow is gone you should be packing away your sweaters and never looking back. Spring and summer require a certain type of sweater to help you stay warm on chilly nights. Although these sweaters are significantly lighter than your winter attire, sweaters are still a spring must have.

There is no end to the different styles of sweaters that you can get in women’s clothing online retailers today. Distressed sweaters are hot for this coming spring and they are perfect for casual wear ensembles and trends. Distressed means the sweater offers a slightly worn appearance and is made out of very thin and airy materials which are perfect for the warmer months of the year. This type of casual top can be matched with skirts for women as well as dresses for women and finish off the trend quite simply. This style of sweater is generally found in the form of cardigan and longer rather than shorter; perfect with leggings!

A beautiful sweater can add a lot of pizazz to your collection of casual wear. Designers like Elan International have created new and more creative versions of casual tops for spring 2011 such as the off the shoulder sweater. This is no casual top but instead a fashion top! This style of sweater can be worn with pants for women, skirts for women and your favourite shorts as well. Whether you are looking for stripes, solids, bold patterns and colors or neutral, Elan International has it for you through their online retailers. Asymmetrical sweaters are just as popular as the off the shoulder look and a lot more can be done with this casual top.


Fashion accessories for women such as unique belts can be used to create a slimmer appearance when wearing your favourite sweater. We all know that sweaters tend to be bulky and we lose our figures somewhere underneath all that material; a great belt snug to your waist can correct this problem. Whatever your style or taste may be, a well-designed sweater can do wonders to an out dated casual wear wardrobe. When you go into your closet this spring to check out what you have to wear for the new season, don’t be discouraged. We all have pieces of women’s clothing that are out dated or in need of some assistance. Whether you are into fashion accessories for women to update your casual top or skirts for women or you simply want a great spring sweater to create a new look, Elan International can help.

Sweaters have now evolved into chic sweater dresses for women that can be worn during the winter, spring and summer alike! A great sweater dress can be matched with your favourite pair of wedges or sandals and you instantly have a new look transferred from winter to spring! Fashion scarves can help you spice up the color if you are dealing with greys and blacks.

postheadericon Trendy Islamic Clothing for the Winter Season

As the earth continues its heavenly journey in a universe that is replete with constant motion and divine momentum, a new season has finally arrived in its bid to keep you gracefully preoccupied with the four seasons. If winter is here, can spring be far behind? Winter brings to you the very essence of seasonal charm with unique foods, fun and more importantly for some, fashion. Winter fashion styles tend to capture every culture both by choice and necessity and trendy Islamic clothing is certainly no exception.

Contemporary Muslim clothing, over the past decades, has gradually evolved into a modest and yet attractive representation of current mindsets. It continues to remain conservative and still serves its original purpose. However, the colors, hues, styling and fabric choices, only to name a few, have gracefully responded to general expectations. The way in which the Muslim apparel industry has recently responded to the need of the hour by launching fashionable Muslim clothing for the winter season, especially on online stores, is surely worth a second look. This is precisely why you can now find Islamic fashions easily and affordably featuring darker winter shades, heavier fabric, and Muslim clothing that is designed to provide ample protection. Let us take a closer look at what is out there for you this winter season.

Traditional Islamic women’s clothing without sacrificing style and elegance

The premise that the Muslim community lives only in warm and tropical climates is a myth. The community which resides in Europe and North America, for instance, not only experiences the joys of winter each year but also welcomes it since it is second nature to them. Muslim fashions for the summer months cease to take center stage until its turn arrives the following year and trendy Islamic clothing for the winter season takes its place. The wardrobe boasts a new and attractive look. What does it showcase?



It is not too late to invest in hijabs that have been elegantly crafted with heavier fabric and sober colors with darker shades. If you aren’t in the habit of wearing hijabs during the summer months, winter is, without doubt, a great time to set a trend for yourself. This clothing accessory is excellent for protection against chilly drifts during those times when the mercury takes a nose dive and temperatures plummet.


As long as you wear warm woolen clothing under your abaya, traditional abayas crafted with a dash of class and elegance in darker shades will provide you with the protection you have come to expect. If your abaya has a “summery” feel to it, chances are for sure that it may not provide you with the necessary shield against winter weather. If this is the case, perhaps it is time to visit our online store and order a few abayas that serve the purpose.


Like many other outfits that combine grace and sophistication in the broader context of Islamic fashions, jilbabs too have assumed a dual role on the fashion horizon– the decorative role and the protective role. If you are planning to replenish your wardrobe collection for the winter, invest in jilbabs that have been crafted in neutral colors and darker shades. Since they are usually made out of heavier material, complementing a jilbab with a full-sleeve sweater or cardigan is your answer for all your outdoor winter excursions.

Although protection and fashion are no longer mutually incompatible, maintaining a perfect balance without making a compromise is now possible thanks to the effortless availability of multitudes of designs and options for Islamic clothing on the Internet, a sphere to which we are happy to make an honest contribution.

Light or Maximum Control?

Are you interested in light control products? Light body shaping garments simply smooth underneath your clothes.

Many of them feature compression panels designed to not just smooth but subtly shape. And then you have your heavy duty, completely body transforming products.

Sexy Shapewear

And then again, maybe you want pretty shapewear. Sassybax has carved out a niche in the marketplace by offering body shaping garments that are practically indistinguishable from sexy lingerie. Run, don’t walk, towards the Sassybax Pretty Collection if you want shaping, but not in your grandma’s underwear. More companies are starting to produce shapewear that look more like lacy unmentionables but for now, Sassybax receives top marks in this areas.
