An Alternative Foundation Piece - The Batwing Top

Sunday Styling Session with i A.M. styling - an alternative foundation pieces, the batwing top

Batwing tops remain a popular style option throughout the seasons adding an alternative to your regular t-shirt or casual buttoned front shirt.

The batwing style has the benefit of hiding that sometimes troublesome upper arm whilst still creating a flattering overall silhouette.

This style flatters most body shapes and is a wonderful alternate piece for use as a foundation item to build looks around.

Using Necklines to your Advantage

Sunday Styling Session with i A.M. styling - Using Necklines to your advantage

Breaking down a garment into specific design elements allows us to get a better understanding as to the best styles to suit our body type and individual proportions. Today I'm going to focus on necklines.

A wide neckline such as a 'boat', 'bateau' and off the shoulder types visually widen the upper chest & shoulder area. This style work well for those with small to average sized busts but can make more bustier women appear too top heavy. Great style for creating balance for women who are heavier in their lower halves (pair shapes).

A v-neck or tapered neckline will 'divide & conquer' to create a slimmer & longer looking torso. Usually a very flattering style.

High round necklines are popular with some of our mature women who prefer to keep their décolleté covered. This style works well for small to mid sized busts.

We have our signature styles plus new stock arriving weekly with all manner of necklines to suit.


Colour Trends 2015

Here at Kobomo we like to help you look current whilst still offering unique styles to ensure individuality.  A recent announcement from world-renowned authority on colour, Pantone, predicts the colour for 2015 as 'Marsala', a rich red-brown, just like the fortified wine that gives it its name.  Pantone's colour trend forecasts predict the hues that will be on trend for the coming year across a variety of industries including fashion, makeup and home decor.

Look out for it in gorgeous rich lipsticks, nail polish, fashion and homewares.  I love its plush earthiness and the ease at which it coordinates with other hues whether as a strong accent colour or stand alone statement piece. Marsala works well with many colours from taupes, golden yellows, greys, greens including turquoise and teal, and even vibrant blues.

Here are some of our gorgeous Marsala inspired accessories and garments currently in stock.  They are available in store now at our Noosaville Boutique or postage can be arranged.  Happy shopping, Amanda.
