A new design guide for women is out and the new book is full of advice on how to make the most of your time as a woman.
The Beauty of Design by Lise V. Baum and Karen J. Varela includes over 30 practical tips, including how to put together a womanly wardrobe, how to add a masculine touch to your home, how you can keep your look fresh and interesting, and much more.
“I am extremely grateful for this book,” Baum says.
“The beauty of design is it allows you to make any sort of aesthetic, any kind of style, you could think of.
You can be very specific about what you want in your life.
It is a way of making things a little more organic and a little bit more meaningful.”
Baum is an associate professor at the University of Missouri-Kansas City and author of the book The Beauty Of Design.
She says the book’s focus on women and design is especially important because the gender gap in fashion and design continues to grow.
“When you look at a list of trends, we see it in terms of the women’s and the men’s, or the people’s and it is very clear that men are doing it better,” Baums says.
That trend is a shift away from traditional garments.
“You have these women who are dressing in their hair, or they are in makeup, or in heels, or their hair is styled to match their face,” she says.
Baums thinks a lot of people don’t know this.
“Women have been wearing clothing for thousands of years and there is a lot that is really ingrained in the ways women dress.
I think that when you start to understand that, it really makes a huge difference,” Baumbas says.
What is the most important part of your day?
The book is divided into four sections.
One section of the guide says, “Makeup is essential for staying beautiful.”
This is important to women who don’t have time to get their hair done.
Another section is, “The importance of having an eye for style.”
You can’t really be stylish without having an attractive eye, Baums adds.
Baumbamps said the key is to think about how you want your hair to look.
“It’s a way for us to keep our hair clean and to maintain our looks and keep our looks going,” she said.
How to wear your hair the right way Baums suggests wearing the right type of wig, a high ponytail or a straight, high pony-tail bob.
She also recommends wearing a natural, long-sleeved dress with a bow.
“If you are trying to do something masculine and don’t really know how to get your hair straight, then you are going to look a little strange,” Baumer says.
This can also apply to women’s accessories, she adds.
“What I like about the book is that it does not focus on what women need or what men need.
It focuses on what makes women look good.”
What is one thing you think a woman should know before she buys a dress?
“It is important that you know what to expect from the dress, what kind of material to wear,” Baume says.
If you are looking for a great style, “then the perfect dress is going to have a bit of flair,” she adds, because it is going on a budget.
If your goal is to look fabulous, you should also look for a dress that will not cost you more than $150.
Baumer also advises women to wear their hair in a natural bun.
“A natural bun can look more feminine, and is more likely to show your hair in all its glory,” she suggests.
The best way to do this is to have some kind of fringe, like a long fringe, that can be tied around your head, as a way to hold it up.
How do you keep your hair looking great?
“One thing you can do is take care of your hair,” Baumpas says, adding that you should keep your comb out of the way and comb in the direction of your scalp.
She encourages you to do the same with your face.
“For a woman, you are much more likely [to be] looking for something that is just a little too natural,” she explains.
“So you can look a bit more masculine with a little less makeup, a little softer makeup and a hairpiece that has the right amount of volume,” Baummas says about styling.
“This is a great way to go to work.”
Baumbamp says it is important for women to stay active, and to do yoga or something else that will add some interest to their day.
“There are so many things that you can be doing outside that you might not think about,” Baumnas says of her advice for women.
“And it’s a great idea to make sure you are in the mood to get out there and go.”
