L.A. Entrepreneur Hopes to Make Body Armor a Hot Fashion Item (Los Angeles Times)

A new line of streetwear, body armor vest is making a fashion statement. Being bullet proof, the clothing hopes to tap into the civilian market.

The way Michael Jones tells it, the Los Angeles Police Department patrol cars rolled up on him and a few friends as they stood on a downtown street corner one morning, shooting promo videos for his new line of streetwear. This would have made him nervous in any case, he says. He’s 30 years old and African American, after all— attributes known to trigger racial profiling.  It was more than that, though. The date was July 8, the day after a sniper wearing body armor shot and killed five Dallas police officers and wounded seven others. And Jones’ fashion items, khaki and denim vests with optional hoodies, are bullet-resistant.

The hippy

For ladies who tend to be fuller around the hips, length will be the main consideration. This is because the shorter the dress, the more inappropriate it will appear, as if it was designed for someone else. Seek to have the length nowhere less than an 2 inches above the knee. A simple A-line dress is a great consideration with more emphasis being placed on the top part of the dress preferably as a halter , an embroidered neckline.

The army

There are ladies with flabby or big arms who would not look ideal in a capped or sleeveless dress. This means that they need a design that will conceal their arms, such as a dress with bell arms extending 3/4 to even the arm length.


The waisty

Some women have a more fuller waist size, giving the appearance of an apple shape. In this case, it is probably a good idea to stay clear of the big belts that many ladies seem to be taking to. Instead, use a sash or chain that can be slung around the hips. Since the aim is to remove attention from the waist, go for a dress with a drop waist to redefine the waist line.

The busty

When it comes to the bust, women can choose to either accentuate it or conceal. In the event that they seek the former, there is the choice of a fabric that constricts the body will act to enhance the torso where as some fabric will make the wearer to appear slimmer. The best way to settle for an ideal dress in this case is to find an A-line dress that is about 2 inches above the knees to deflect attention from the upper body.

Nothing gives a clearer view of what is being discussed like an actual picture of the attire in question. Online stores provide this one advantage prior to making a purchase, allowing the wearer to compare the dress on many levels across different stores and at different price ranges all at once.
