Being Unique & REAL is IN

Lately we have been reading a lot of articles in fashion magazines and watching fashion segments that keep repeating one huge trend.

That being unique and real…being YOU is very in. Which we love. We love that everyone can show off their personality through their style, try something brand new or pull something out from their great grandmother’s closet and it all still works. We love that there are not so many clear fashion rules anymore; just more of a guideline that still allows you to be YOU. The current trends are now merely suggestions on how to develop your individual look – cues in the overall tone of your personal style.

This is one of the many reasons our customers keep coming back.  We have such an array of selections for different types of women or different looks. Every new line that we at Mod Bod release are fun, unique, beautiful and flattering. This results in fabulous lines in our store and very pleased customers.

Cowl Neck Top

Our Cowl Neck Top has been a favorite item with our customers for quite a while. They love the cowl neck top for many reasons: it helps women wanting to appear larger in the bust accomplish that; it adds a bit more femininity to an outfit; and when paired with the right bottom, it is quite slimming for the waist.

#1 Pair our cowl neck top with a great pair of skinny jeans, like Sheryl Crow below:

#2 Tuck the cowl neck into a higher waisted A line or pencil skirt.

#3 No matter what the sleeve length, pair a cowl neck with a low slung belt. It gives the cowl neck a bit more of a casual and funky look.

 

Like we have said before, use our classic items as the key pieces in your wardrobe to give your own personalization to completely different looks!

Two Camis for the Price of One

We are excited to announce that right now you can get TWO Camis for the price of ONE when you buy our Cami Kits for 19.95.

Right now there are some great color options in the Cami Kits:

Brown/Cream

Jadeite/Ivory

White/Black

White/Shell Pink

Cream/Daiquiri

Mauvewood/Mosstone

The Perfect Cami is extra long to keep your stomach and back covered. Wear it alone or layered under or over other clothing– the slightly higher neckline will cover cleavage. Quality finished seams, hems, and necklines paired with a perfect fit, help The Perfect Cami to stay snugly around your hips. It’s perfect for everything from work to working out! Use it as a supportive, expandable maternity shirt!

Developing Fashion Intuition

https://i1.wp.com/www.gelblog.com/wp-content/uploads/2009/07/david-downtown2-fashion-illustration.jpg 

Fashion intuition is that gut instinct combined with your personality which defines you and makes you stand out from the pack of others. Of course, some people naturally have a stronger sense of fashion intuition than others.  But with proper guidance and attention, it is something we can all learn! 

Developing your fashion intuition will help you sift through the stream of fashion trends season after season and sort through the hundreds of new looks. It will help you select the classic, timeless pieces which tend to rotate in and out of fashion periodically and pair them with the newest trends. 

It will help your pocket-book when you make sure you have those fabulous ‘key pieces’ always in your wardrobe.  It will keep people commenting, ‘Where did you get that?’ And, developing fashion intuition will allow you to show your personality through your clothing. 

Here is an activity to do to help in developing your fashion intuition: 

  1. Put together different outfits using your own fashion sense. Explore fashion magazines, fashion blogs, your favorite celebrities’ style, etc. When you have the outfit picked out, try it on and take a picture of yourself!
  2. Play around with accessories for each outfit. Try out different shoes or hats or belts. Once again, look through catalogs from your favorite shops or ask a friend whose fashion you admire on tips for accessorizing.
  3. Take a picture of each and every different outfit and style you model.
  4. Switch up your makeup, hair style, etc. with the different outfits. You will start to develop your “intuition” and start to get excited about certain outfits.  You will love how they feel like YOU, are flattering on you, match your personality and make you feel good!
  5. When you’re done trying on different coordinating outfits, upload your pictures and put them in a book to look over.
  6. Choose your favorite photos and then study them closely. What do you like best about the picture? What do you feel you wear the best? This will help you get to know YOU, your style and ultimately your fashion intuition!

Good luck and have fun!

Spring Dress Trends for Women

This season, spring dresses are very in.  Two in particular are quite popular: the Maxi Dress & the Shirtdress.  These are two styles we love but need a little bit of help to make them modest!

The shirtdress has a timeless silhouette.  These fun dresses can go from work to play with the swapping of accessories – with the belted waist they complement your curves and you can even switch up the belt to create a fresh look. It is very casual chic, which we love here at Mod Bod. You can pair it with leggings if it is a bit too short.  To make it modest up top, all you need is a Basic Mod Bod Cami or Cap Sleeve or Tank !

The Maxi Dress is great for hot weather and will fit any body type. The maxi dress comes in an array of prints, colors, and fabrics, making this a versatile fashion piece.  Many women want a bit more coverage up top where, once again, our Basic Mod Bod Cami or Cap Sleeve or Tank comes in perfectly.

Mod Bod Basics make it so you can have fun with all the current trends while feeling comfortable with how much skin you are showing.

Happy spring!

Mini Mod Paired with Sundresses

Sundresses are such a go-to item for getting little girls ready during the spring & summer. But sometimes halter dress tops or strap sundresses show a bit too much skin for our taste. Throwing a lightweight, comfy, soft and fitting Mini Mod Cami or Mini Mod Captease is the perfect solution to this problem!

Aren’t they adorable? You have the option of lace or no lace at the bottom.  These tops will cover your girls’ stomachs and help you not to worry about their sundresses staying in place.  They are also quite comfy! Be sure to pick up a few for your girls for spring & summer.
