Obama says, control yourselves August 10, 2013 14:59

All of us are aware of the over-the-top lifestyle of Kim and Kanye. While their ostentatious display of wealth seem to awe the commoners, it certainly seem to disgust the American President Barrack Obama. Just recently, Obama was caught criticizing the outrageous lifestyle of West and Kardashian in an interview. The President expressed deep concerns on the impact it was going to have on the younger generation. “While answering question on how the American dream has become more about yearning for tangible things one can't afford, Obama said that during his days, the American dream was about acquiring a good home, a good job, and the possibility of higher education,” a popular English daily reported. “But the new generation, which has easy access to the lifestyle of celebrities like Kim Kardashian and Kanye West, take it as a mark of success and everything appears smaller by comparison,” the President further added. Kim and Kanye are worth 130 million dollars, apparently! Image: India Today (AW: Suchorita Dutta)

Of all the latest trends, colorful denim is the brightest of all. Bright jeans are seen a lot these days and they shine on them all. Colorful jeans are a sure shot method to attract plenty of admiring attention. One word of caution though, a bright pair of jeans also calls for a good fit, no compromises.

Skinny jeans is best suited for the petite framed individuals. They can carry off the tight jeans with ease. On the other hand, those with boyish looking bodies must stick to straight cuts, as any other cut would make them look disproportionate. For the tall ones, a stretchy type of jeans would work best, while adding the comfort factor. Last but not the least, pear shaped bodies look best in boot cuts. Go ahead, get colorful and paint the town the color of your choice. Bright denim and ballet flats, complemented with a neutral t-shirt is the quickest way to turn those heads....twice.
