It's all about Fashion!

Men Wardrobe

Men have a wide variety of options, when it comes to stocking their wardrobes. There are many styles to consider, and fashions are always evolving. Some pieces seem to remain popular throughout the decades, and designer jeans are just one example of items that fit that description. They are versatile, and they work well for many occasions. When shopping for clothing staples for men, it is good to keep in mind all of the components that add up to a functional wardrobe.

While maintaining a sense of style is important to many consumers, it is not the only element to consider, when browsing men  clothing. The latest fashions will fall short of high expectations, if they are not matched appropriately to the person wearing them. A man who is advanced in years might like the styles worn by men in their twenties, but is probably better suited to pieces intended for his age range. This does not mean he must sacrifice fashion, and in fact, there are many clothing lines designed to complement and showcase the physiques of older men.

Another important factor is how clothing fits a person. Men fashion changes constantly, just as fashions for women do.  If a garment does not fit an individual well, it generally does not convey the look it was supposed to. It is wise to learn about personal measurements and limitations, and to dress accordingly. A competent tailor can be of enormous help, both in discovering individual proportions, and in adjusting clothes to fit them beautifully.

Men suits, in particular, can be very difficult to wear, if they are not given proper adjustments by a knowledgeable tailor. It is rare for a man to find a suit that fits immediately, without the need for any alterations. A good, well-made suit is an investment, and it should last for many seasons. It is usually worth the extra time and effort required, in order to ensure that such an ensemble looks the way it is supposed to.

Suits are typically best worn with men dress shirts that complement them well. Classic styles are often relied upon for their traditional lines, which work well in many situations. Trendier styles, however, can be just as elegant and appropriate, especially if they are intended for use with suits or jackets. A fashionable dress shirt can be the determining factor, when assembling an outfit that is meant to impress peers and associates.

When a man wishes to dress in a stylish manner, without appearing too formal or overdone, designer jeans can be a key asset. There are countless designs that are quite appropriate in a variety of settings. Jeans are now worn in a multitude of circumstances, from first dates to casual business meetings. People of all shapes and sizes can usually find jeans that fit them, and that are suitable for many occasions.

A fashionable ensemble for a man is not fully realized, without a good pair of men dress shoes to complete it. Shoes can make the difference between a look that is mediocre, and one that is stunning and unforgettable. Whether one chooses to wear a three-piece suit, or a simple jacket with pants, a decent pair of shoes can help to produce a desirable effect.

For some men, dressing well and appropriately is easy to do, and for others, it can be a bit more challenging. It is usually a sage idea to consult with a trusted friend or family member, before putting an ensemble together. Most wardrobes are best if they contain several key pieces, like suits for formal occasions, and designer jeans for more casual use. Most men will find that once they have acquired the basic elements needed, the next logical steps are to put them on, and to enjoy them.

Should I Use A Dry Skin Care Product?

If you suffer from dry skin, it is imperative that you use a dry skin care product. These are specially formulated to deal with the specific issues relating to your skin condition.

Dry skin has very small pores and can be dull, itchy and flaky. Wrinkles and fine lines are more apparent on dry skin than any other type of skin. Sufferers often complain of a dragging or pulling sensation within their skin.

Causes of dry skin vary but it is more common as we age. Skin condition is affected by Hot baths, low humidity, sunshine and soaps, even the gentle ones account for some dry skin conditions. If your parents had dry skin, you are more likely to have it as well.

The key to treating dry skin is to keep it nourished and protected. Avoid heat as much as possible so no more hot showers, baths or saunas. Use a moisturizing liquid and not soap when bathing.

You should see your doctor, if you suddenly start suffering from dry skin and have other symptoms as well such as excessive thirst or tiredness. It can sometimes be an indicator of a more serious health problem.

Not that anyone needs to tell you but smoking is extremely bad for your skin particularly if you already have dry skin. Smoking causes the arteries to narrow which reduces the amount of oxygen and other nutrients that the blood can carry to your organs. Your skin is your largest organ so to regain beautiful skin quit smoking!

Think about your diet. Whilst we would all love to be thin, a starvation diet will cause your skin to shrivel up as it becomes dryer and more prone to wrinkles.

Look for specific dry skin care products. These will contain petrolatum, glycerine, lanolin, vegetable oils etc that will help moisturize the skin from the outside in. Drink plenty of water and green teas to help keep skin hydrated.

Dry skin can sometimes be an indicator that you are low in B vitamins. This is quite common amongst women and easily fixed via diet and/or supplements. Drinking goat’s milk may help. Other good sources of vitamin B are sunflower seeds, wholegrain and yeast.

An apricot mask is a great mask to help clean and soften dry skin. Put two apricots into a blender (take skins off first!), add 1 teaspoon of avocado oil. Blend together and put the resulting mixture on your face for about 15 minutes. Rinse and apply your normal moisturizer. Obviously this would not help those of you who have an allergy to either apricots or avocados.

Another old trick is to put your moisturizer on when your skin is still slightly wet as it will help lock in the moisture. You need to remember to change your dry skin care products every so often as our skin will change over time and may need less or more intensive care. If your skin is still dry and flaky after applying your normal products, it is time to see your dermatologist for some new ideas.

Fashion Hats Grow In Popularity

In today’s fashion conscious world your clothes say as much about you as the actual words that you use. Therefore the accessories that you choose to complement any outfit are absolutely essential to truly reflect your personality.

This fashion awareness extends to men, women and children and today a fashion hat has become an integral part of any outfit. Designer hats in particular by brands such as Bugatti, Bruno Banani and Wegener have become highly desirable.

The trapper hat, which once was confined to Lumberjacks, Russian Soldiers and Eskimos has become a fashion icon of our times. With a huge choice of hats ranging from traditional fur-lined to through to the brightly coloured version with pom-poms and tassels, the trapper hat will never be seen in quite the same way again.

Beanie hats, which were once confined to ski slopes and football supports are now ‘de rigeur’ for any fashion conscious young person. Bugatti and Bruno Banani are both German brands but this phenomenon is not confined to the Western world as teens from all over the globe positively embrace this new trend in the fashion world.

High profile superstars and A-listers help of course and when such luminaries David Beckham, Jennifer Lopez (J-Lo) and Madonna to name just a few, are seen wearing these new fashion accessories their fans will eventually follow suit.

It’s not just golfers who wear baseball caps nowadays either. Rappers like Eminem, Kanye West and Snoop Dogg have all made the peaked cap the must have accessory for the youth of today. This is a trend dating back to the 70’s and the rise of the Sugarhill Gang and their classic Rapper’s Delight.

However the growth of fashion hats is not just about the teen market. The Fedora and the Trilby Hat are also enjoying something of a renaissance. The Fedora has been around for over a hundred years and whilst Baseball Caps, Trapper Hats and Beanie hats have all evolved to reflect today’s fashion, the Fedora still retains exactly the same classic style and shape as it always has.

The Trilby Hat too goes from strength to strength but again looking just the same as it has always done. Crooners like Bing Crosby and Frank Sinatra brought the hat to the public psyche and Sean Conner, as James Bond, continued to raise its profile. Today many pop stars, male and female can often be found wearing this classic item of fashion.

There is even a ‘Trilby Hat Tour’ that golfers all over the world can join provided of course that they embrace this most stylish of accessories.

A place for everything

A closet needs a system in order to function properly and stay organized. Your system can be as complicated or as simple as you like but the common factor in all closet organization is having a place for everything. Once this is accomplished, the next step to master is to put everything in its place. This has to be done consistently to make your system work which will take time, practice and a little self-discipline.

For instance if the bottom of your closet is a sea of unmatched shoes and you have to conduct a scavenger hunt to find a matching pair – you need to find a home for every pair of shoes you own. This will probably mean investing in a shoe tree or a similar organizational helper. Before you buy, do some research – find out what is available in your price range and where you can find it. Make sure that there is enough room for your entire shoe collection and be forward thinking – leave room for future growth. If you don’t do this you will end up in the same situation as before but with less money in your wallet.

After you have found a home for all of your clothes (or shoes) take the time (each and every time) to put them back in their new spot. But don’t stop at just your shoes! Keep going, pick the next problem spot in your closet, you will know what it is by the level of frustration you experience as you try to find something. It could be belts, ties, workout clothes, socks, whatever it is –find a home for your items, put them there every time and soon it will become second nature and you will never have to conduct a search in your closet again.

Sunglasses, the way to go

When it comes to sunglasses, is retro the way to go? You are probably seeing a lot of different designs of shades these days, are they new? Truthfully, there are really no new designs, just redesigns of a formerly popular style. In the fashion world, retro designs are everywhere–and sunglasses are no exception.

One design that has poked its head back into the fashion world is well known all over. Onassis Glasses, or the Jackie-O design sunglasses were popularized by the former First Lady Kennedy. After becoming Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis, she flaunted this oversized style of sunglasses all over the globe. The style was so closely associated with her, that it has shared her name since the late seventies.

After fading from the public eye, the Onassis Glasses lay dormant for about thirty years. However, poised for a comeback, these sunglasses have begun making waves on red carpets and runways all over. The women credited for bringing back the infamous sunglasses are Nicole Richie and Paris Hilton. Since then, Jackie-O’s have been seen on the faces of famous women and trendy-but-average Janes everywhere.

Another retro design of sunglasses that has made big waves recently is the cleverly named Aviators. Originally designed in the 1930’s for military pilots, Aviators were hot on fashionable faces in the 1960’s and 1980’s. True to their every-twenty-year trend, Aviators are back with avengance and have been favorites for men, and women, with style. It is particularly true that this style of sunglasses has caught on with the younger “MTV Crowd” more than with adults. Johnny Knoxville has adapted Aviators as his signature style.

Some styles of sunglasses have briefly shown themselves in fashion, only to never be heard from again. This is not necessarily a bad thing. There are those sunglasses the human race still feels a little silly about. However, let’s not speak too soon. These sunglasses could be waiting in the wings for their triumphant return.

OVER-Oversized sunglasses are one fashion faux-pa most of us would rather not make. The design is a retro tribute to the late Lady O when they are slightly oversized and conservative. However, when the sunglasses appear to be attempting to take over your face, you may have crossed the line into ridiculous. Save the supersized look for clowns and put this design back in the vault.

Another design that some hope will never return carries a soft spot in the hearts of many women. The Wayfarer sunglasses were first made popular by Hollywood’s bad boy, James Dean. After his death, these sunglasses were worn for a time, before slowly falling by the wayside to make room for the newer styles.

However, the Wayfarer was gone but not forgotten. The sunglasses made a double comeback on the faces of James Belushi and Dan Aykroyd, better known in the eighties as the Blues Brothers. The sunglasses with a clean black, square design were a perfect complement to their all black suits, hats and ties.

Wayfarers made one more comeback in 1983 when a sock and underwear clad young man slid into the living room and into our hearts. Before Tom Cruise was the controversial figure he is today, he was a hot high school graduate just trying to get into a good college. The Wayfarers sunglasses haven’t been much on the fashion scene since then, but we’ve never forgotten.

It’s hard to tell what may come next in the world of fashion sunglasses. If you really want to keep up with it, just check the fashion magazines in early spring and see what new old styles are unfolding. You may have seen them all before, but these retro sunglasses are bound to have a new and exciting twist.

Color Stones

We love color. We don’t like the drab of only black and white. We want the brilliant blues, the deep reds, the bright yellows and the vibrant amber. Cubic zirconia jewelry is giving us color. Cubic zirconia is a very close look alike to diamonds, but did you know they can be made in colors also. Instead of paying the price of a real sapphire, you can have a cubic zirconia colored like a sapphire, a garnet, amethyst, or a citrine. As always the price is still affordable.

Fashion jewelry offers the trendy new styles in whatever bold colors are “in” that season. This is perfect to help you spice up your wardrobe with color. Every one wears black and white, but we always add some color to the outfit. Color is a very important part of a wardrobe.

Of course not all jewelry has to have color to be fashion jewelry. The white cubic zirconia in a setting of sterling silver is very fashionable. Most people prefer to get a lot and to pay less. With cubic zirconia jewelry made with sterling silver, you get the best of both worlds. With the cubic zirconia looking like diamonds or any other gemstone and the sterling silver has the look of platinum, and both of them at a cheaper price than the real things, you are really getting your dollar’s worth. You get the classic elegant look of the silver and cubic zirconia combined which will rival any diamond with silver piece of jewelry.

So what colors are “big” this summer? Every color that comes out of your garden, the color of the summer sky which will include all the pinks, and yellows, and blues, and greens, and reds blooming in your garden now. In celebration of summer you can add an ankle bracelet to your jewelry wardrobe. Summer is the best time of year to wear an ankle bracelet. During the winter our ankles tend to stay covered. So while they are out for the summer, adorn them. Give your summer attire the finished look it needs.

So let’s get started. Add some color to your jewelry wardrobe. Bring home a vibrant blue earring and necklace set made with blue colored cubic zirconia and sterling silver. Maybe you would rather have a beautiful deep red ruby ring. How about a charm bracelet? Maybe you need a brooch to attach your favorite wrap. What ever your wardrobe has in the way of color can be mirrored in your jewelry. Choose some spectacular pieces, and because they are so affordable you can buy more than just one. You can get the necklace and add the matching earrings and bracelet.

You can get the matching ring and necklace and throw in an ankle bracelet too. Even the white cubic zirconia, especially if you get it with a precious metal will look very elegant for your evenings out. What ever you choose to add to your jewelry collection will be great if you make it cubic zirconia. It is one way you can’t go wrong.
