Fusion Clothing

Fashion is all about your individual style statement. While the type of clothes maybe the same, the way a person carries them is what determines his style. The way you carry your dress and accessorize it is what makes you stand out from the rest and pull glances your way. Fusion fashion is the answer to your shrinking wardrobe problem. Mix and match your dresses in order to bring out the perfect look. This is the best solution which helps you get the dress that would turn all heads your way at any party or event, and at the same time help you stay on budget. Fusion is not just limited to mixing and matching the stuff in your wardrobe, it is also about mixing the looks to get the perfect outfit.

The trend that is catching up fast is the fusion of Indian and Western wear in order to produce a dress that is simple, elegant, and chic. This Indo-western wear is being adopted by women of all age groups, and is gaining popularity everywhere. Kurtas, which were at one point of time strictly a traditional dress, are no longer restricted to that perception. They have donned a very modish appearance and are now accepted as an elegant and stylish office wear or a relaxed and comfortable evening wear. They can be paired with jeans, leggings, or even capris in order to add to their glamour quotient. In winters, colorful scarves draped in style can lift the beauty of your dress.

Pairing western dresses with chunky jewelry is another step that you can take in order to enhance the attractiveness of your dress. Colorful bangles when worn with jeans and top give the ensemble a very earthy yet graceful appeal. In the end, it is always about how you carry and flaunt a dress that makes all the difference to your looks.

Men’s Winter Wardrobe

Shirts

As a base layer and for extra warmth, always make sure to wear a short-sleeved t-shirt. For work, wear this under a classic button-front shirt in a block colour or with a neutral pattern such as checks, polka dots or stripes. Vintage-inspired prints are once again very modern.

Alternatively, just slip on a jersey shirt with a V-neck or round-neck, depending on what shape best suits you.

Jumpers and Cardigans

No winter wardrobe is complete without a quality woolen jumper. Ideally, this should be a real Nordic or Scandinavian design item, however, these are not so readily available in shops and can cost quite a lot.

Instead, invest in an Arran knit or faux-Arran design garment, ensuring it’s not purely synthetic and will genuinely keep you warm. Fair Isle knit patterns are also bang on trend.

For warmer winter days, a few basic jersey jumpers and thin crew jumpers are extremely versatile and can be worn for both work and leisure.

Fan of the cardigan? These are very much still en vogue and look great paired with most styles of trousers. Choose warm fabrics like cashmere, wool or mohair. Chunky knits look good.

Trousers

Jeans are a must for all seasons, but in the winter it’s important to choose a style made in thicker, heavier denim to better withstand the chill.

In general, avoid thin, light and floaty materials as these will make it very unpleasant to spend prolonged periods of time in the outdoors.

A wise idea for kicking about at the weekend is to invest in a trendy pair of sweatpants. The fabric is often soft, warm and cosy, making it ideal for wearing while out and about in the winter.

For wearing during the week and in the city, chinos in a heavier cotton are a good choice.

Coats

Every fashion-conscious male should have more than one winter coat: one for work, one for play and, ideally, another for evenings out. Most men get away with having just the two, however, by choosing a versatile key piece that can be worn both to the office and in the evenings.

Men’s pea coats are ideal in terms of versatility. They look equally cool paired with tailored trousers as they do a pair of jeans or chinos.

Use Peacock Feathers and Grosgrain

Fashion designers and dressmakers have made it a conscious effort to make use of clothing and garment accessories in order to achieve levels of aesthetics and functionality. Clothing and garment accessories such as peacock feather and grosgrain are just 2 of the many kinds of accessories that individuals in the industry of fashion are fully accustomed to.

Peacock feathers are beautiful. No one can escape the captivating magic and the colorful exchange of hues in a single piece of a peacock feather. Even as you see a real live peacock in the zoo or in the park, its easily be engaged by its beauty and flounce. Even in the name of fashion, fashion designers and dressmakers make use of a peacock feather’s vibrancy and astounding color play by placing it as accents for dresses, evening gown ensembles, wide brim hats, bracelets and belts. The spiral and circular part of a peacock feather where all the colors of purple, green and blue combine are also used as earrings. A hook is simply attached on that part of the peacock feather to make anyone who wears it undeniably beautiful. Of course, peacock feathers used in this kind of activity are synthetic versions of the natural ones. Commendation must given to designers and manufacturers of these synthetic peacock feathers for copying a natural feather down to its fine and intricate elements.

Aside from peacock feathers, grosgrain are also widely used as an aesthetic and functional component of clothing items. Grosgrain primarily looks similar to ribbons and laces. The only difference is that grosgrain is more durable and stronger than a meter of ribbon or lace. Grosgrain is composed of woven silk or wool or a combination of both. The ribbed and woven characteristic of grosgrain makes it a perfect functional element to use in evening dresses for girls and evening coats for guys. With its thick and sturdy composition, grosgrain is used to form part of a button-up polo such as the collar and the arm cuffs. Grosgrain is also used as part of the waistband of jeans or formal pants. Aside from a wide functional use for grosgrain for clothes, grosgrain is also used in other practical applications such as in book binding, cargo handling and gift wrapping.

Sleeveless Flannel Shirt

It’s fair to say that the sleeveless flannel shirt is not a look that will suit every physique, but at least some evidence of an active life will be a good starting point. Then again, if the shirt is worn solely to show off your rippling muscles, there’s a good chance that any public displays of appreciation will be outnumbered by the rolling eyes and giggles behind your back. The important thing is not to look like you’re trying very hard (even when you patently are).

It’s impossible for a sleeveless flannel shirt to look formal, or anything approaching formal for that matter. It is going to make you look ready for a day on the beach or lounging around your home no matter what you do with it. If you think you can throw on a jacket and nobody will notice, as though it is some modern day form of dickey, you had better make sure that jacket stays buttoned up because letting it flap loose is not an option, let alone taking it off. Not only that, but sleeveless shirts tend not to be of the formal variety anyway. That really would look a bit weird, when you think bout it.

The closest sleeveless shirts get to being formal is never having sleeves in the first place; that is, being tailor made to be sleeveless. Again, we’re not talking funeral-ready here, but at least it shouldn’t fray around the edges unless the retailer is quite happy to work on the bottomless-cup business model. What you gain in tailoring, though, you lose in rough and ready appeal, and frankly, that’s one of the main appeals of the sleeveless shirt.

So if you’re looking for that rugged look, or perhaps trying to get a rock star/boy band vibe going, your sleeveless shirt will stand you in good stead. They are starting to make an appearance in vintage clothing stores in all their varieties, and this might be a good place to start looking. Their mere existence in a vintage store will prove that any attempts to self-improve a sleeved shirt have not caused any critical structural damage. You could well stumble upon a designer name or two in your search too. And what would epitomise rebellion like a trashed – sorry, modified – designer shirt?

Finding Custom Made Dress Shirt

  • Consider “where” you will be wearing your custom made shirt. Is it for the office, a date or the weekend? It’s important to think about where you will be going with this tailor made shirt, because your shirt should fit you and the situation. It also helps to think about “where” you want to be, thinking ahead will prepare you for success, whether if you are trying to land a promotion or getting that coveted new job. It all comes down to how you look, how you feel, and how you are perceived.
  • “When” do you plan on wearing your custom made shirt? Is it spring, summer, fall or winter? Just because it’s a long sleeve shirt doesn’t mean it’s appropriate for all seasons. Our advice, select the appropriate fabric, this way, you’ll feel comfortable. Cotton or cotton-poly fabrics are great for all seasons, but fabrics like wool should be only worn in the winter.
  • How much “time” do you want to spend maintaining your custom made shirt? Do you wash your clothes with care, or iron or maybe you prefer to get your shirts dry cleaned. Careful planning is essential, so you can maintain your tailor made dress shirt for as long as possible without being a hassle.
  • Looking your best is easy, buy tailor made shirts that accentuate your best features. Depending on your body type, select the appropriate fit, collar type, back pleats and cuffs style. Just make sure the sleeves aren’t too long, or the torso is too tight.
  • Know your colours and patterns. This is really based on your preferences. For something hip and trendy, try a plaid shirt; however if you prefer something more classic and versatile, try stripes. Checks are also a good choice if you want something in between, just be mindful of the pattern size.
  • Be yourself! Try, some of the features that are unique to add a hint of personalization. Online tailors have numerous options, try bold and bright coloured buttons with matching button hold thread. Or maybe monogram your custom made dress shirt. Just a few details will turn your tailor made dress shirt into something special.

Camo Pants

 

Popularity of camo pants continued to grow through to the rebellion period in the ’90s when thousands of Punk girls and boys used this garment as a trademark. By the year 2000, camouflage pants were no longer associated with demonstrations and rebellions, but mutated into a must-have accessory, which stormed into the fashion industry with a vengeance. Even though Khaki pants were already in the market, the heightened need for tougher and fancier pants among the youth saw promotion of camouflage pants as an alternative fashion accessory. Nowadays, they are attainable in an array of designs, prints, and color patterns that can suit various interests.

In earlier years, women who wanted to explore the outdoors using camo pants had to buy smaller men sizes because of limited female versions. However, with advent of female fashion, many stores now have an expansive line of women camo pants that can suit various body shapes, sizes, and environments. For instance, with a bit of research, you can easily find racing pants, zip off pants, lounge pants, and many other designs in various prints and colors. Another trendy camo design is cargo pants. These clothes have low-cut flared legs and a loose fit for comfort. Women from many quarters hail cargo camo pants because of their flexibility. For example, if you want to highlight a basic look, a cut-style cargo pant will do the trick. Look for a soft material in your favorite colors or prints and match it up with a trendy, but laid back clothing such as a stripped sweater. To accent your look, loop a long matching scarf around your neck and wear a pair of ballet flats for a cozy feel.

If you are a professional and work in an office environment that allows trendy women clothing, camo pants are a good option. You only have to match it with a crisp button-down shirt or pretty blouse, and a pair of high heels to highlight a professional look. Unlike male pants, make sure that everything that you wear is form-fitting. Thus, instead of wearing a boxy jacket, as is the norm, it is advisable that you go for a slim cardigan instead. As a result, your will flatter your curves, look, and feel sexy.

Even though the benefits of using camo pants are many, you must find quality products that suit all your needs. Research from many online and offline sources and seek referrals from family members and friends to help you through the process. Because camo pants do not stretch much, make sure that you have your correct hip and thigh measurement before spending money on any clothing. Ask a friend or professional tailor to help you through the process. If you intend to use your pants outdoors or for nature adventures, consider whether you need waterproof and or insulated designs to protect you from such adverse conditions. Overall, whatever you choose, make sure that it is comfortable and complements your personal style.

Men Need an Outlet

I knew better than to embarrass my daughter by sitting down in the chair in our hometown but when we were out of town I just lost all concern for cool points. This brings me to a major point of concern. Summer is here and now it appears that on every vacation to the mountains or the beach part of the trip requires a trip at the newest American monument…THE OUTLET MALL!

We men need some help here. I recently tried riding my bike from the hotel to the outlet mall which killed about an hour of shopping time. My daughter just got some Heelies, those tennis shoes with heels in the back. I think that would at least allow me to keep up a little better. My friend, Tim, had the mother of all outlet mall techniques. He said he and his friend tailgated while their wives shopped! Tailgating! Brilliant!

I only have one word for you outlet mall moguls who want to encourage the family to come donate our money to you. Television. Big screen, drive-in movie sized, high definition televisions tuned to ESPN placed on the roof of your eatery. You could have waitresses Heelie out to the parking lot with chicken wings and burgers.

The increase to your business could triple not just by the volume of guys happily taking their wives shopping but also through phone conversations like this, “Bob, I guess I’m ready to go. Can you pick me up at the other end of the mall?”

“Well, don’t you want to shop some more? It’s the middle of the third quarter and my new friend, Spud, here just ordered us up 25 more wings.”

She of course would respond with the great American shopping cry of, “Charge!”

Luxury Watch Makers

The watchmaker greeted him with a smile and offered to assist him. Hello, said the man with great expectations. I am looking for a watch to fill my desires. The watch maker immediately offered a few selections. It was in this moment that the man’s excitement began to envelope his status quo. New emotions became real because he had worked for many years to achieve the success that had become him and this was his opportunity to showcase his latitude in life.

It was then that the man decided he found the watch that would fulfill his desire. As the man pulled out his card to pay for the watch, the man behind the counter began to instruct the buyer of the quality that housed his new timepiece. With this information, the man was instructed to never wear the watch, but on special occasions and to keep it in a special protective case when not wearing it. For the man had never worn a luxury item of this nature before, so he took the instructions in kind and exited the building.

The man walked out of the building with a new feeling he had never felt before. He couldn’t wait to show off his new treasure. After all, he deserved this…

How this story ends is not as important as how your story begins. There is one very real truth to this however. The rush of excitement you get when you invest in a luxury watch is an unmatched pulse of emotion through yourself that no other person can duplicate. That is your own. Therefore, when you decide that it is the time for that rush of excitement, be sure the luxury watch maker will provide the elements to fulfill this quality that you so much deserve. These elements are derived from a watchmaker that earns your trust, respect and most of all is loyal to your desires for excellence. One with these elements radiates these qualities in their masterpieces. The world of watchmakers is vast, but the culture of luxury is precise.

Evolution of the T-Shirt Design

Few of the companies use the water-based inks on printed ones. Many of the companies engaged in manufacturing t-shirts and offering printing facilities opt to use plastisol because this can be used on varying colors that do not demand color adjustments.

Companies engaged in printing them seek to keep up with the demands, fashion and trends. Furthermore, they use specialty inks that include puff, chino, discharge and shimmer based inks. Furthermore, metallic foils can be heat pressed and stamped on plastisol ink. Therefore, when the metallic is combined with specialty shimmer ink, this offers a mirror effect where the screen-printed plastisol ink has been applied. Because these specialty inks are expensive, they are applied on t-shirts that are made available in boutiques. Other methods used in decorating t-shirts include airbrush, embossing/impressing and embroidery, appliqué.

In the 1980’s and 1990’s, some featuring prominent designer logos became popular. Young adults and teens won such clothes. Using them, the wearer could show off in an inexpensive way their liking for a particular designer brand. Major companies have also used printed ones for the advertisement of their products. Since the 1990, different companies have used t-shirts featuring their corporate logo together with a message in their advertising campaigns.

Towards the end of the past century, designing custom ones became popular. Many companies started using digital printing like Direct and DTG printing which allowed clients to design theirs online. This has been performed without the need for placing minimum orders for the t-shirt printing. Therefore, clients can make an order for a single custom design.

Clients can also choose branded ones to get their preferred custom design printed. They can select the style, color, size and brand as well as the printing methods that feature the foil, glitter, vinyl and metallic. Some printing companies offer free graphic designs for orders of more than fifty of them. This makes a win-win scenario for the small companies.
