Dress Your Age

First and the foremost, the key to dressing for men over 50 is to wear clothes that fit right. Clothes that flatter makes them look even more aged. So go through your existing array and choose the outfits that slip on easily – you not just look good on them but they are also comfortable no matter what occasion you are going for.

Keep your style colour-blocked

It doesn’t say that you should retire all the colours from your wardrobe but go for some monotonous tones. Try to avoid bright acid colours and pastel shades and go for some classic hues like camel, light grey, navy blue, forest green and dark red. If you have all grey hair, then wearing all grey outfits will look fabulous. This is the most recommended professional fashion for offices.

Give farewell to your cargo pants and shorts

Most of you must be thinking it is obvious, but it requires repetition- no cargos, ever. Though they are comfortable and convenient, think about all those pockets that come in handy, but they are not for you-big daddies.

Make white t-shirts your regular wear

Yes in the old age anything in white can be classy. You can …

Selecting the Ideal Suiting Fabrics

Some materials are designed specifically for the purposes of suiting. There are some facts that should be considered so as to end up with the correct outfit.

  • Breathability: this is an important trait. Over the summer, one may get sweaty. In the winter, you may have to run around in an effort to try keeping warm. You should choose the ideal material for different situations.
  • The Softness of fabric: no one wants itchy pants or the trapped feeling where it is too tight to even move in a jacket that is over-starched. The best way to avoid this is to teach our men about the available options.

Wool

This is a very popular choice because of its aesthetic value and versatility. The material is natural and breathes quite well. It can be worn during the day or even the night. It does not wrinkle and it is soft. Anyone needing a slimming and lighter material should look for another option though. The different types of wool include worsted, merino, cashmere, flannel, and tweed.

  1. Worsted wool: this is a textile that is quite compact. It is durable and very smooth as well. The wool is combed into a process called carding

History of Urban Clothing

When we think about urban fashion, many of us who have more than a passing interest will be able to name dedicated designers but that wasn’t the case back in the early 80s. In that time it was most closely associated with major sportswear companies such as Nike and Adidas, supported by the fact that Run-DMC had a hit called “My Adidas”. Trainers, sneakers and plenty of bling was seen as a must for those dedicated followers of fashion. A signature hairstyle, one that broke boundaries was also seen as essential if you wanted to look the part!

As hip-hop grew in popularity so too did its legitimacy in terms as being recognised as a music genre in its own right. As this happened, urban fashion became more widely recognised and noted by brands outside of the sportswear industry. Urban fashion was more than just a passing craze, it was something that was here to stay.

In the beginnings, the styles could be closely associated with an African influence with artists such as Will Smith wearing green and gold associated with the continent. As we moved into the 1990s, Gangsta rap started to emerge and become part of the fashion. …

Feel And Look Great In Swimwear

Pay attention to swimwear fabric

Not all fabrics are created equal and you should really know what works best in terms of comfort and appeal. One of the things you need to remember when looking at the fabric is that it is very possible for chlorinated water in swimming pools to bleach your piece leaving it baggy. It is therefore advisable to look for swimwear that is chlorine resistance and retains shape. UV rays can also affect how the fabric feels and behaves so choose UV resistant wear. Focus on comfort when looking at the fabric and you will love how you feel all through the swimming session.

Choose the right colors

A colorful swimwear will make you feel brighter and happier, but the fact is that bright colors highlight your body. If you have areas that you would rather keep hidden then it is a better idea to choose solid colors. You can of course choose a two-piece swimwear so you can have the solid color around the part of your body you are not too comfortable with and the bright parts on areas you wish to flaunt. Darker skinned women look good in bright colors, whereas navy blues …

Smart and Glamorous Trouser Suit

The suit has come a long way since Coco was first photographed lounging around in a man’s tweed ensemble, way back in 1929. In fact, she caused something of a storm. Although the silent movie era had featured starlets swathed in silky pyjama suits, the sight of a woman wearing a sharply tailored jacket and trousers, with the attendant undertones of androgyny and male power, was not only new but decidedly shocking.

It wasn’t until the second world war, with the sudden influx of women into traditionally male jobs, that women’s trouser suits really came into their own. Women started wearing them to work and after the war, when designers developed their first ready-to-wear collections, trouser suits gradually became an alternative to the formal skirt suits introduced by Dior with his New Look.

The reasons for the suit revival are simple: suits are comfortable, smart, glamorous and, most importantly, hide a multitude of sins. Can’t be bothered to iron your shirt? Easy, just press the front and stick a jacket over it (remembering not to take it off, of course). So you over-indulged on the designer beer? No problem, a long jacket hides the fact that your trousers don’t fasten …

Look Great In Gladiator Boots

  • The type of dress matters a lot, wearing long dresses that cover up even part of the boot, gives you an awkward look. The right dress or skirt is the one goes up to some inches above the boot. Miniskirts are the best but when one must wear long dresses then ankle-high boots are best.

Types of Water Shoes

Water sandals

Water sandals are a practical choice for someone who does not demand the high level of protection and traction offered by the water shoes. They are great for summer use and extremely comfortable because of the open design. However, the open design means they do not give a lot of foot protection, so it is important to be careful when walking or climbing in slippery places.

Water shoes

Water shoes are the most versatile option with the ability to give traction and toe protection similar to normal land shoes, but also the comfort and quick drying ability of water sandals. The look and style of these shoes vary significantly. They can look much-like a pair of athletic shoes while others can appear like a simple pair of sandals. Also, the versatile nature of the water shoes makes them a practical choice away from the water. For instance, they are great to wear for a land excursion that includes hiking in an area with plenty of rocky or steep terrain. Water shoes are particularly popular with canoeists.

Wet shoes

Wet shoes are designed to solely work in a specific environment. They aren’t likely to be much use out of …
