This is indeed the season of beauty and fashion. The recent visit of reigning Miss Universe, Leila Lopes for the Miss Universe Jamaica 2011 coronation had the National Indoor Sports Centre awash with the style set. Style Week just wrapped and Caribbean Fashion Week is set to begin next week. What better time to offer some fashionable looks.

Look 1 features cigarette tuxedo pants worn with a bolero. An embellished bra and platform pumps complete the look.

Look 2 is a sexy black romper made in a cool knit, but the style quotient is further increased by adding patterned pantyhose.

Look 3 is a sexy Grecian-inspired minidress in the colour of the year...orange. A bold orange and gold necklace completes the look. To get this look you will:

1. Cut

o front and back of dress

o facing

o outer portion for wrap

2. Join front facing to front of garment, and the back facing to back of garment, then topstitch

3. Join front to back at sides, enclosing the wrap portion in the side seam along the left side.

4. Stitch elastic to the top of dress - between facing and garment.

5. Finish seams

6. Hem

7. Twist wrap portion and anchor along top in desired position.
