Fashion Tips for the Modern Man

There are so many fashion tips out there for women, but what about men? Men also want to look good especially if they are going to an elegant or formal function such as a wedding or a corporate function. Here are some fashion tips for the modern man.

If you are attending a corporate function that is semi-formal, then you may want to wear something semi-formal. If you need something semi-formal yet classy and elegant, you can choose an informal pants with a shirt and a nice sports jacket or blazer. You don’t really need tie pins and clips for this look. You can choose a cravat which is placed on the inside of your shirt with the first two buttons open. Ask the salesman to show you how to fold the cravat and how to wear it. This will give the jacket a classier look.

With this look casual shoes are perfect. Colour is also very important when choosing a casual shoe. With casual shoe, I don’t mean sneakers. I mean something that is informal but doesn’t have laces like a moccasin or loafer. Remember to take shoes that are going to be comfortable if you are going to stand for a long period of time. If you are going to a place where the venue is outdoors, consider taking an interesting hat that complements your outfit.

You could also opt for the complete formal look that includes a suit, shirt, tie with matching pocket handkerchief, cufflinks and tie pin. All of these individual items need to be colour coordinated to complete the look.

If you are going to a wedding where the colour is red, you could choose a black men’s suit with a black shirt, red tie and red pocket handkerchief. You can pair it with a silver tie pin and silver cufflinks. When buying a suit at any men’s fashion store, the salesman will place your formal men’s suit in a suit bag, it’s important that you take your suit out before you wear it, as it could be creased and needs to be pressed or ironed as it was folded in the bag. Remember to always put your suit back into the same bag as originally purchased to keep it beautiful, dust-free and crease-free. Also keep the box where your shoes were in, so that when you take them off after the function. You can put them back so that it still looks good the next time you wear it again. Last tip; please remove the labels on the sleeve of your jacket. It was bought not borrowed.

Remember you are what you wear. Behind every successful and well-dressed man is a beautiful woman.

Fashion Tips for Plus Sized Women

It is not a sin to be curvy, healthy or plus sized. A fit and healthy body is much better than a skinny one. It is wrong to repent if you are a plus sized woman and is not able to select the right dress for yourself. Hence, instead of lamenting over your body size, knowing some fashion tips can really help you to wear your dress in a comfortable and stylish manner.

Avoid wearing Tight clothes

Skin hugging clothes are an absolute disaster for plus sized women. Such clothes accentuate the body parts and make you look odd. Always keep a measuring tape handy whenever you plan to shop for clothes and know your exact measurements. Do not buy such dresses which are less in size than your actual one. Choose those clothes which are dark colored as they hide your weight to a considerable extent.

Choose the right accessories

Accessories can really spruce up your look if worn in the right way. Many fashion outlets which sell plus sized dresses for women offer accessories that complement those clothes. You can either purchase those clothes or can also try something creative. For instance: adding a scarf around your neck along with the dress will really make you look beautiful. Remember, you can replace a belt and use a scarf instead when you are wearing a jeans to create a fashionable look.

Wear the proper footwear

You can select the footwear according to your choice, but resist from wearing high heals or stilettos as it might be heavier for them to carry off your weight. Moreover, you might also face difficulty to walk comfortably by wearing them. Online shopping stores are the best place to find the right foot wears.

Hairdo

When it comes to hairstyle, you really have to manage way in such a manner that it looks stylish. Do you know that a right hairstyle can make you look much slimmer than your look? Yes, keeping the right mane really work wonders. Do not keep long hair, rather wear a short style instead. Do not keep it too short like a bob cut. Keep your curls around your neck so that it looks beautiful. Ponytail does not look good as they tend to highlight the chubby cheeks and the round portions of the face. Hence, do not try them. If you still have difficulty finding out the right hairstyle, seek the advice of a good hairstylist.

Try these simple fashion tips and make the heads turn at you.

What Men Should Consider For Clubwear

b

While it is a common notion that it is easier for a man to get dressed than it is for a woman, many men still commit classic mistakes in choosing proper clubwear when they go out to party. More often than not, men who look funny and/or ridiculous are hardly aware of it and to be honest, it is best to get an opinion from a woman.

Here are some fashion tips that will help guide you in your wardrobe selection for that next hot night out! Well, here’s the news, there are real and existing rules that apply to men when it comes to choosing the right clubwear to wear. Even if you are a fashion expert, I am certain you may be surprised by what I feel are the do’s and don’ts to follow when selecting appropriate partying attire.

1) Never Overdress

In general, men should never go to a club overdressed except in the rare occasion that you are coming straight from work but then that’s another problem to deal with. Remember this point, a club is a place for partying and neither formal nor business attire has a place here. Barney from the popular T.V. show “How I Met Your Mother” may make it seem that suits are cool to wear all the time including when you go out, but this works only in certain clubs, and those are the ones the really cool people are not in. Wearing a tie is acceptable only if it is a tie that is absolutely appropriate otherwise, it is never advisable to show up to a club in one. In my opinion it is still best to reserve the tie for work.

2) Men Should Never Wear Sunglasses In A Club

You may see rockstars and celebrities wearing sunglasses at night so you may think it is OK for you to do the same. Some celebrities may have a point when they state that they use them due to the many flashes from all the paparazzi but more than likely they are hiding the bags under their eyes from staying up too late. Although a pair of cool sunglasses may look good on you outside on a sunny day, they absolutely should never be worn in a club. The sun does not shine inside a club, and wearing shades while clubbing is absolutely not cool no matter what you think.

3) Men Should Never Wear Slacks And Should Always Wear Jeans

Despite what you may have heard, clubs don’t discriminate on age, but they are always only for the young at heart. Slacks can easily make a man look old regardless of how good they look on him. When going to a club, it is always best to stick to jeans. This rule, however, is to mean only straight cut, blue or dark-colored denims. White-washed jeans can make a man look short, and colored jeans tend to look loud and detestable. Skinny jeans on men, especially the really tight ones that some men are wearing lately on the other hand, died with the king so once and for all, say goodbye to them.

4) Always Wear The Appropriate Shoes

Regardless of color, rubber shoes and sneakers are always inappropriate clubwear. When going clubbing, a better footwear choice is either a pair of dress shoes or loafers. Sandals are great for the beach, but the club is not a beach and using socks will not improve the look. A man who can remember where he is will never commit the mistake of being a fashion nightmare, and remember women pay attention to shoes on a man regardless of what they say.

5) The Right Shirt

Most clubs will not allow t-shirts even if it cost you three or four hundred dollars. It is common knowledge that most hip clubs require their patrons to wear collared shirts before even considering allowing them in. If you insist on using one, when going to a club in a t-shirt, always remember to match it up with a sport coat or jacket. This easy look is great for all types of men regardless of height or build. A simple button-down shirt with sleeves rolled up just right below the elbow will always be a winner, though. This simple, classic look works for all ages at all times. It never gets outdated and will never be a mistake. A glittering shirt, however, should be worn only in the circus. Unless you form part of the lighting ensemble for the nightclub, your glittered shirt has no place there.
