Holiday Fashion Tips

The Season of Suave: Holiday Fashion Tips for Men

The holiday season is upon us and with it comes maxed out credit cards, deciphering Christmas gift hints, and holiday parties. Even though one of those is actually enjoyable, you still don't come out unscathed -- unless you have a little too much eggnog. Sure, the intention of Christmas and holiday parties are to be a fun way to get together with friends, family, and coworkers and let loose. But there's a darker side to holiday parties -- and it's not Steve in Accounting's drunken dance moves. It's the dress code. Most hosts list what attired you're expected to wear to their holiday shindig. As if trying to figure out what to get your special lady for Christmas isn't enough confusion for you during the holidays. Well, have no fear. We're here to help. Check out our holiday guide to men's fashion in 2018. You'll never worry about the differences between "black tie" and "cocktail" ever again. Men's Fashion in 2018: Holiday Dress Code Guide: Decoding the holiday dress code for men isn't always easy. You can ask your lady what all the dress codes mean and likely have in the past. Or, you can surprise her this year by picking out your attire on your own. There are six main dress codes and you'll soon see you've been overcomplicating it this whole time. 1. Festive: Let's start out with the easiest one: the "festive" party. This attire is going to be casual, but calling it "casual" isn't very creative. You don't have to break out the ugly sweaters -- unless you're invited to an "ugly sweater party," of course. But, sweaters can be a classic and casual look perfect for a holiday get-together. Choose colors that are seasonal like red, green, and white, but go with deeper shades as opposed to bright ones. If you're the life of the party, be bold and go with tartan plaid. If you're more of an understated guy, keep with solid colors and add a touch of the holiday spirit to your socks. 2. Office:   If your company opts to have a holiday party during your lunch break, you probably don't have to worry about your dress code. You'll already be in your business attire. But, if your boss decided to go off-campus for the company Christmas party, you may not be too sure what to wear. Keep it business casual if the dress code isn't mentioned. This means a nice blazer with an optional tie. Wear a button-down shirt with festive colors and a pair of slacks. Finish off your look with some loafers or moc boots. If you think your holiday office party will lean heavily to the casual side, a nice pair of dark, designer jeans (no holes!) can also work. Pro tip: If you're attending your holiday office party and booze will be involved, limit your alcohol intake. Every holiday party should only have one Steve and you don't want to be him. 3. Cocktail: Cocktail is the same as semi-formal. Think about what your wife or girlfriend will wear. She probably bought a dress or skirt either at or just above the knee. This is opposed to the floor-length gown she wore to your brother's fancy-schmancy wedding. See a correlation? You're going to want to follow suit (no pun intended) in your own way, of course. We'll break it down into tie and no-tie. A no-tie look works for cocktail attire if you rock a dark tailored suit with a white button-up. If you're a tie-guy, bypass the suit and opt for slacks and a button-up instead. Throw on a blazer and you're ready to go. Don't go with a boring black tie, though. Find a darker color that works for both the holidays and the rest of the year. Learn more about different patterns and materials and what looks best on you before deciding. Accessories will really add the finishing touches to your look. Shine up your Oxfords, wear a nice analog watch, and even get yourself a pocket square. You'll look suave and confident as soon as you walk into the party. 4. Black Tie: Remember when we said the festive dress code was the easiest? We lied. It's actually "black tie" for one simple reason. Black tie means tuxedo. Now, you may not have a Tom Ford tux hanging in your closet, and that's fine. You can either rent a tuxedo or go with a tailored three-piece suit instead. 5. Black Tie Optional: If "black tie" is the easiest, "black tie optional" is usually the most confusing. No, it doesn't mean wear what you want -- we know you'd rather wear sweats and a hoodie. It means you can wear a classic tux or something a little more creative. You can wear suspenders and a bow tie or a funky three-piece suit. As long as you keep it formal, you should be just fine. 6. White Tie: We've covered five dress codes so far and you've probably had no problem following along. Until now. "White tie" may sound like nothing you've ever heard of, but the truth is, you have. It's like black tie on steroids. White tuxedo tie, jacket with tails, the whole nine. That's what someone means when they tell you it's a "white tie event." Unless you're a celebrity or attend the Vienna Opera Ball every year, you likely don't own this kind of tux. You, of course, can rent one. And no, it won't be cheap. The bright side is that the traditional foot attire for white tie is velvet slippers, which will at least have your feet feeling like they're wearing sweats. You're Ready to Be the Fashionister of Every Holiday Party: Now that you're up to speed on the men's fashion in 2018 holiday dress codes, you should have no problem looking like a Hollywood A-lister on your own. But, if you still need some helpful tips, check out our 7 fashion tips exclusively for men. Read Also: Souq Fashion Outlet: Avail Up To 70% Off On Top Brands Top 10 Fashion Brands Of 2018

“You can have anything you want in life if you dress for it,” said the famous American costume designer, Edith Head. The professionals responsible for influencing people’s dressing choices are the coveted fashion designers we all love to draw inspiration from. However, the fashion industry has come a long way – no longer is it dominated by fashion designers. If you’re also looking to enter this industry, you can opt for different fashion design courses based on your unique sensibilities, as discussed below. Fashion designing In short, the art of designing beautiful clothes and relevant fashion accessories comes under fashion designing. Looking at the work of famous fashion designers, students of these courses are given a thorough understanding of designing clothes that meet the cultural needs of their time and are at the same time, in line with the latest trends. Under fashion design short course from reputed institutes like the Pearl Academy, students learn a whole lot about the different technical aspects of fashion designing such as freehand and digital sketching, color palettes, mixing and matching styles, knowledge of different textiles and how each drapes on the human body, history and evolution of fashion, trends within the industry, secrets of top fashion designers, and more. Using a fashion design course, students can make a successful career as a fashion designer or other products' designer, such as footwear, headwear, jewelry, and other accessories. Visual merchandising Where fashion designing courses teach students the art of designing original and influential designs, visual merchandising courses offer deep insights on making these designs attractive in the eyes of the brand's target audience via various brand promotional strategies. These courses provide students knowledge on implementing different creative marketing strategies, strategic store displays, window signs, and even interior product placement, source and manage inventory on a budget, and more.

Textile designing Textile designing is a highly technical field wherein students are taught the art of creating designs for all kinds of fabrics – printed, woven, knitted, or surface ornamented fabrics, along with dying and embroidery. Students of this course will learn how to design fabrics based on their type and use. These designs can be for a certain body or space, and while textile designers are free to allow their imaginations to run wild, they still need to stay within the technical boundaries set by trends, culture, and of course, demand. Textile designing courses offer students a good eye for color, texture, and fabric patterns as well as different techniques of processing textiles. Textile designers are often in high demand among garment and textile export houses, branded fashion showrooms, boutiques, retail outlets, textile manufacturing units, among others.  Fashion photography Belonging to the umbrella of fashion communication, fashion photography is an exclusive genre of photography that deals with the display of clothing items and other accessories such as jewellery, headwear, even nail art, makeup, and hairstyles. Easy as it may appear, this field is all about showing the clothes and fashion accessories in such a manner that the particular brand’s products appear to be enticing to its target audience. Fashion photography students learn more than creative photography; they learn how to balance creativity with the brand’s business goals for promotional purposes. Fashion photography is a highly lucrative career option involving different sub-niches such as catalog photography, editorial photography, high-end and street fashion photography, and more. The world of fashion is advancing at an unparalleled rate. And where once only fashion designers reigned supreme in the industry, the fashion design industry has opened its doors wide for other successful fields worth exploring.

From Flint to Lasers – The Evolving Techniques of Hair Removal

I hate having to go through the painful waxing sessions for hair removal! There! I’ve expressed the sentiment that millions of women like me across the world feel every now and then when they look at themselves in the mirror after a shower. My significant other refuses to shave on weekends unless he has a formal event he has to go to. Watching him lounge around the house unconcerned about the two-day stubble, I’ve often wondered how social paradigms developed to the point where having a hairless face and skin became essential. I mean if nature didn’t intend us to have hair, we would have long eliminated the gene that gave us hair in the first place. Makes sense? So, here I was, complaining and mumbling under my breath as I went through my phone looking for the number of my salon. (If I want to look anywhere near presentable in a swimsuit, I would have to schedule an appointment.) Suddenly, it struck me. Who was this historical personality who invented hair removal anyway? I decided to get to the bottom of the issue. It was time to find out if hair removal is really an essential of fashion or plain, good old hygiene. So, I set about doing a bit of research into the issue. Hair Removal Has Been Around Since 30,000 BC (There go my hopes of ushering in a social revolution where hairy faces and bodies were completely acceptable.) As Livestrong says, people as far back as 30,000 BC used the sharp edge of flint to scrape off the hair from their scalps, faces, and bodies. At the time, it WAS a question of hygiene. No hair meant no lice, mites, and other infestations. I dug around a little more to find that everyone (including women) living in the warmer climates would shave off their scalp hair too. Then came a time in the Middle Ages when going hairless (bald?!) was the height of fashion. (I think I am quite happy I don’t live in those times.) The elite would remove all their hair (in the nether regions too) as a sign of quality. Think Romans and their statues and paintings of entirely hairless people. And, the court of Queen Elizabeth I where women removed their eyebrows and the hair on the front of their heads to show off high foreheads. (Phew!)  Hair Removal Techniques Haven’t Evolved All That Much In fact, removing hair in those times was a lot more painful. My research showed that people mainly used tweezing to get rid of the fuzz. They’d use seashells as tweezers or pumice stones and metal blades to scrape hair. Egyptian women are credited with the art of threading. They were the first to use twisted strands to pluck hair in 60 BC. Apparently, they also invented sugaring which is very much like modern-day waxing. And, yes, hair removal creams were also used. Only, women used a solution of quicklime and arsenic to burn off the unwanted hair. (It’s scary to think about what that did to their skins.) Getting Back to the 21st Century Having grudgingly conceded that I would have to get that waxing session, after all, the next step was to explore my options. I mean, doesn’t science and technology have an answer to the problem of unwanted fuzz? (and, a painless one, too!) Look around and you’ll find that there IS one solution that the ancients didn’t have. It’s called removing hair with the help of lasers. But, the question still remains. Does laser hair removal hurt more than waxing? (Remember? We’re still stuck on the issue of pain here!) So, It’s Back to the Internet! I decided that it’s time to look for a more permanent solution (Given that I’m going to have to do this all through my life!). And, if lasers promised clean skin for good, it was worth a shot. Here’s everything I found out about the procedure. Some of the information is from the expert aestheticians who can perform the treatment on you and some other comes from hapless people like me. (If you’re looking for some authoritative details, check out the Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory website.) Medscape says that laser hair removal came to be first used in the year 1998 when some guys, Dierickx, and associates first released a paper after conducting 2-year research on the technique. Since then, you can find a whole range of equipment that can help you with unwanted hair. Lasering is a solution that’s perfect for women with darker-colored hair. The deeper pigmentation seems to absorb the heat and directs it to the root. The heat effectively burns the root so that it cannot go back. In a fraction of a second! You’ll probably need about 6 to 8 sessions spaced at intervals of about 6 weeks each. Weigh that against a lifetime of waxing sessions and the cost in terms of dollars (and, the pain!) and you’ll find that lasering is much more economical. You won’t have to worry about ingrown hair with layering. The levels of pain depend on your tolerance and the thickness of the hair. To some extent, the area under treatment is also a factor. So, if you’re working the more delicate sections, it could hurt a little more. Many users have talked about feeling a rubber band twanging against the skin. You can prepare for the session by taking painkillers in advance and using topical numbing creams. Applying ice afterward also helps. Avoid caffeine on the day of the procedure and time it far out from your appointment with Aunt Flo. You’ll save on some of the sensitivity. You can expect that the treated area will look pink for a few days and since the hair will be falling out, you may have to exfoliate thoroughly. Some women have also talked about noticing a singed hair odor. Laser treatments can be of two different wavelengths and doctors choose the appropriate one according to the color and texture of your hair and skin. As you go through the sessions, your aestheticians may work out a combination for you. Avoid trimming the hair before your session for a week or so and the treatment will be much more effective. Lasering doesn’t take a lot of time. You can get the session done during your lunch break. Lasering is great for both and women. You’ll be wearing protective eyeglasses all through the session so you needn’t worry about any potential harmful effects. There you go - the results of my digging around for the perfect solution for unwanted fuzz. Come to think of it, humans have come quite a long way in their quest for the perfect hair removal solution. From flint and cuts and nicks to the permanent option of lasers! (Who knows, over the next few hundred centuries, we might just mutate into humans without the need for lasers too. Um, they aren’t entirely painless, you know!)  To know more: 6 Stunning Long Hairstyles For Oval Faces
