Fashion Blunders That Men Make

 photo FITMAIN_zpseed87c7f.jpg

Let’s face it, when it comes to fashion men are still way behind to women. A lot of men still don’t care about how they dress up and prefer to put on a simple pair of jeans and T-shirt. Furthermore, men make fashion mistakes all the time. Some may be tolerable but others are plain outrageous. Shiny shirts and suits are better off hidden in the closet. Instead try a form fitting black shirt which can be worn with pants or jeans when you want to go clubbing. Another fashion faux pas is wearing socks with sandals. It just doesn’t look cool.

Many guys are sloppy dressers. Clothes that’re too loose fitting make you look like a street gangster. Shop for clothes that fit you perfectly and are flattering to the type of body you have. Another advice is to not wear uncomplimentary colors. The colors you wear should flatter your natural features such as your skin tone, eye color, and body shape. Remember to always keep your style simple and understated.

Finding the Right Engagement Ring for Your Loved One

 photo engagementring_zpsb4abe580.jpg

You are ready to “pop the question.” You have the place, the time, and you even came up with a brilliant idea of how to do it. Now, all you need is the right engagement ring. There are a few considerations to keep in mind in order to get the best fit for your sweetheart. And if you’re feeling adventurous, you can even create your own diamond wedding ring if you can’t find the right match in stores.

What will best fit your loved one’s personality?

It can be difficult knowing what ring will fit your sweetheart’s personality best. Is this person more outgoing or more introverted? Do they have an active lifestyle? For any kind of personality, the gemstone is a good place to start. When you think you have the right gemstone, the next step is the type of metal you should choose. Keep in mind that it is important to coordinate the band with the gemstone and your sweetheart’s personality. When you’ve chosen the engagement ring, choosing the wedding band will be a breeze. It is helpful to make sure the wedding band fits comfortably with the engagement ring, matches the design, and, of course, matches the personality as well.

If you’re going for something more distinct, engravings are a good way to add sentimentality and create a one of a kind ring. Custom designing the ring is another possibility for a completely unique look. In any case, it is best to try to match the characteristics of the ring with the character of your beloved.

What type of gemstone, shape, and cut should you choose?

Think about whether your fiancé prefers a traditional diamond or a colorful gem or both. Rubies, sapphires, and emeralds are popular colorful options. Next, consider what shape and cut would be best. The shape adds to the personality. Does a square shape seem suited to this person, or would something more tall and thin go better? The cut can affect how much the gem sparkles. Think about what sort of cut would resemble your beloved and still correlate with the rest of the design. As far as side gems are concerned, they can help emphasize the central gem and add sparkle to the ring. Something else to take into account is how well the gemstone balances with the band.

What is the best choice of metal band for your loved one?

It is helpful to pick out the type of metal that will go best with the lifestyle of your sweetheart whether active or not. There can be several types of metal to choose from. Some of the more popular metals are gold, silver, platinum, palladium, and tungsten.

  • Gold can be less expensive than platinum, is resistant to tarnishing, and can come in different colors such as yellow, white, and rose.
  • Silver can be less expensive than gold and is an excellent option if you prefer a white colored band.
  • Platinum can be durable, is resistant to wear and tarnishing, and is hypoallergenic.
  • Palladium can be less expensive than platinum, is strong, and resistant to wear and tarnishing.
  • Tungsten is durable, resistant to scratching and wear, hypoallergenic, and can be less expensive than platinum.

Finding the right ring can be tricky sometimes, and there are often many options out there. However, with these guidelines you can have a good starting point and be more able to narrow down the possibilities. Remember, it is helpful to match the characteristics of the ring with your loved one’s character.

Things to Remember When Shopping For Shoes

 photo reef_zps3dab375f.jpg

Shopping for quality shoes is not easy. It’s sometimes better to just buy something that’s branded and expensive because at least you know that it’s durable and of high quality. But what if you don’t have the money to buy pricey shoes? There are some things to remember to guide you through the process. Always try on the shoes you like first before you decide to buy them. Keep them on your feet and walk around for a few minutes to see how they feel. Be sure that they fit perfectly and you feel comfortable wearing them. Check if the shoes can be returned before buying them.

Purchase from a familiar brand that you’ve worn before when shopping online. This way you already know your accurate size. If you have to choose between leather and synthetic leathers, it’s a no brainer that you have to go with leather. They’re biodegradable and more durable. Always choose quality over quantity. A quality shoe with quality maintenance should last a long time. You shouldn’t worry too much about the cost since quality shoes look better, lasts longer, and are more repairable. Thus, they’re a better long term investment.

As for good dress shoes which men should have at least a pair of, the soles should be stitched not just glued to the bottom of the shoes, at least a quarter of an inch thick, and is made of leather. Also, the lining is made of high quality calfskin or natural leather not synthetic materials. If you want to have stylish and top quality leather shoes, shop at Reef. They have some really beautiful and interesting models to choose from like the Reef Eland. It has premium full grain leather upper with distressed and vintage finishes, leather outsole with rubber enforce strike area, and premium pig skin leather lining. Plus, it’s handcrafted in Brazil.

Another model that’s worth checking out is the Reef Bantu shoe, what with its premium leather full grain upper with distressed and vintage finishes, molded wax texture cushion insole, molded rubber swellular traction out sole, slammed cup sole construction, and EVA compounds for odor management on the insole, among its features. I’m sure I’ll also look good if I wear the Reef Spiniker Mid NB. It has Reef molded rubber swellular traction outsole, removable and washable insole for function and travel, odor management EVA insole, molded wax texture cushion insole, and die cut leather labels inlay on the outsole.

Swimsuit Sarongs From Fairwindssarongs.com

The beautiful thing about women is that they come in all shapes and sizes, each uniquely lovely in her own way. Whether she is tall, short, slender, curvy, athletic, or anywhere in between, a woman’s physique can be her most beguiling asset. Knowing how to dress in a way that will flatter her own body type can only increase her allure.

When it comes to choosing swimwear, women often are unsure of which style best suits their figure. There are so many different cuts and styles available, and that just complicates things even more! Understanding the best type of swimwear to flatter her figure will help any woman achieve that confident look she’s going for.

Ladies who have a minimal bust line should try wearing a top that has embellishments like fringe, ruffles, or metallic accents. This extra detail will help add some volume to the bust line. Horizontal lines and extra thick lining of the top will add some fullness as well. Ladies with an ample bust should opt for tops that provide lift and support. Thick-strapped halters and under wire tops will lift the bust and help elongate her frame.

Women who have a curvy figure look great in bathing suits that that help cinch in the waist. Styles that feature a wide belt, color blocking, or an empire waist all help accentuate curves without adding bulk. Women who are pear-shaped can draw the attention upwards with a plunging neckline, or opt for a boy-short style bottom for extra coverage.

Another great way to play up swimwear style is to add fun accessories. A bright sun hat, sexy shades, fun beach tote, and a sarong will complete the pool-side look brilliantly! In fact, swimsuit sarongs from fairwindssarongs.com can bring the perfect element of sexy summer style to help accentuate any woman’s best assets, and even help camouflage certain areas that she feels need more coverage.

The most important detail of pulling off a hot summer look is to have confidence. No matter how she dresses, if a woman feels confident in what she has on, she can wear anything! Feeling comfortable and looking good go hand in hand, so it’s always a must to feel good in whatever she decides to wear.
