- Socks and sandals: they’re about as compatible as weddings and rain. So please avoid this disastrous combination at all costs. Pick a side, guys – either wear sandals or wear your socks with tennis shoes. We’re not digging that look at all.
- Step away from your teenage son’s closet; nice and slow and there won’t be any problems. You’re not his “bud” and you’re not 18 anymore; and that’s OK. Take the plunge – adulthood isn’t quite as bad as it seems. For a grown-up casual look, consider the Ralph Lauren Polo T-Shirt.
- Yeah, we’re impressed with the results from your five-days-a-week workout – but really, the tight tee-shirt isn’t necessary. We see it. You’re powerful. You’re strong. You’re the hero. Please – allow our imaginations a bit of fair play. A great tee that shows off your best features? Try the Classic D&G T-Shirt.
- No Novelty Allowed! That should be a sign in every man’s closet that has a penchant for novelty clothes (think flashing ties and tees with bow tie graphics).
- We’re all about those days that were made for wearing sweats. We live for them as much as you do. The kicker, though, is your insistence to wear the sweats complete with ketchup stains (or chocolate, beer…pick your stain). It doesn’t reveal a sexy devil-may-care attitude you’re hoping for; instead, it reveals a, “Hey? Wanna do my laundry?” approach. Instead, don this Abercrombie Fitch hoodies and you might just have volunteers to do your laundry before the day’s over.
- If it doesn’t fit, consider staying its lifetime sentence in your closet. Give it to charity or pass it on to a friend who can wear it.
- Let’s bring it full circle with another thought on socks – white sports socks not allowed with dress trousers! Not ever. Seriously – it’s a law. Somewhere. Casual pants like khakis or anything dressier requires the appropriate socks.
- To be a gentlemen, keep these tips in mind to suit up- with the solemn promise to never break them.
Many people, especially women, are strugling their lives to becoming more and more beautiful counting on fashionably dressed. They buy a latest dress with their whole month wage, shop all weekend for a suitable sweater for their dust coat. But it seems that many of them will never be satisfied, let alone others'.
So, how to dress to become a beauty? Here is some tips for you to retain the strengths and discard the weaknesses.
Large Hips: Draw attention away from childbearin' hips by wearing solid, deep colors on the bottom with light or bright colors on top. Instead of tapered leg jeans or pants, try relaxed fit bottoms with a bootcut leg. Stay away from garments that have excessive pockets or details at the hipline. Say no to straight skirts, opting instead for an A-line silhouette. Oh, and lest we forget, avoid pleats like the plague.
Small Bust: To appear a bit fuller on top, wear shirts that have details or pockets at the bustline. Layering is another strategy that works: Try a cute tank top under a cardigan or button-down shirt. Floaty, loose-fitting blouses are also an excellent choice, but be sure to avoid plunging necklines.
Large Bust: A little too well-endowed? Try open necklines like V-necks and U-necks. Super-clingy fabrics should be avoided, as should large patterns and prints. As far as sleeves go, opt for those that are long or elbow-length. Avoid short capped sleeves.
Broad Shoulders: If you have wide, strong shoulders, stay away from shoulder pads, boat necks, horizontal stripes and boxy sleeves. Try V-necks, which pull the eye down and away from the problem area.
Large Stomach/Waist: Avoid snug waistbands and the "tucked in" look if you're thick around the middle. Also stay away from straight skirts and fabrics that cling over the stomach. Dresses with empire waistlines are a good choice, as are graceful A-line skirts.
Too Short: Petite girls who wish to appear more elongated should try short skirts, clamdiggers and capri pants. Avoid busy prints and cuffed pants, and try not to chop up the body with contrasting bold colors. Stay away from garments that are bulky or oversized, such as puffy bubble jackets.
Too Tall: Don't hunch over! Tall women who want to de-emphasize their height can do so by wearing horizontal patterns, textured fabrics, and longer or flared skirts. Short skirts can work as well, especially when paired with knee-high boots.
Overall Heaviness: The hype is completely true: black is a very slenderizing color. Dark, solid colors tend to be quite slimming in general, but this certainly doesn't mean that larger girls should stay away from bright or light shades. Loud prints should be avoided at all costs, however, as should oversize "tentlike" clothes, which make it obvious that you're trying to hide something. Opt instead for well-fitting, tailored looks that cling in all the right places-but just not too tightly.
- Cotton – Of course, this is the most commonly used material in not only men’s casual clothing, but casual clothing as a whole. It’s a readily available commodity, comfortable, easy to launder and breathable. It’s a can’t miss fabric that’s been used through the ages.
- Angora – What many may not be aware of is its origin from the angora rabbit. It’s most often combined with wool to lower the retail pricing, but it’s quite comfortable and luxurious feeling. It’s fluffy and can sometime shed. It’s most often found in gloves, scares and hats, but can sometimes be found in tailor-made suits.
- Barathea – This is indicative of silk or rayon combined with cotton or wool. It presents with a fine texture and “pebbled” surface. Most often found in men’s formal wear.
- Beaver cloth – This is a wool with a heavy nap that’s considered very warm wearing. It’s quite elegant and is usually chemically altered to ensure a glossy shine. Usually found in heavier winter coats.
- Camel Hair – As the name implies, it’s fiber from a camel and is usually blended with wool for additional softness.
- Flannel – Usually a combination of cotton and twill. It’s a hearty fabric that is used in cold weather. Quite popular with hunters.
- Canvas – Linen (yes, really) and cotton blend that’s used in some heavy winter coats used by fishermen and others who spend considerable time in the rough outdoors.
