The Power of Color

You can’t help it. When a woman in a red dress walks into a room, or a man in a striking black suit wearing a vibrant red tie, you turn and look. Or how about how relaxed you feel in a green room? Color is all around us and has more influence over our moods then you might think. When it comes to fashion, color is a powerful way to send non-verbal messages about your confidence and ability.
“The colors a man chooses for his business attire tell the world a lot about him,” says Dana Persia, image consultant and owner of DP Image Consulting. “Color implies his level of success, background, status, authority, personality and more.”

Here are a few tips from Persia for deciding on what colors to add or subtract from your wardrobe:

For suits, choose dark blue and dark grey in solids or pinstripes to create more credibility. Other acceptable colors for suits are brown and beige. Black can be severe; the darker the color, the more weight it carries. Black is your most authoritative choice,

History of Italian Fashion

However, do you know where the magnificance of wearing watch lies in? Here I would like to present the reasons for why we have to wear watches.

Fashion Image Consultants For Men

When a man seeks out the services of a fashion image consultant he begins a journey of self discovery.

A man’s elegance stems from his knowledge of clothes, of how to wear, buy and care for them. It is this awareness that others notice about him: he is no self-aggrandising dandy but a man whose confidence is perfectly balanced by the beauty and suitability of the clothing he wears. We step back and admire the eloquent nonchalance of one who knows the rules and has successfully and joyfully mastered them.” Richard Martin,Curator of the Costume Institute, Metropoliatan Museum of Art.

This journey will alter the way he thinks about himself and how he looks at clothes well into the future. The expert advice of a trained professional will make shopping easier and dressing for any occasion more successful.

Tall Man Style Tips

If you are a tall man measuring 6 ft or over you probably already know that there is a shortage of clothing that caters for your height. It seems manufacturers pay more attention to the shorter man, leaving it to specialist retailers to cater for taller fashion customers – and these specialist clothing items usually come with a hefty price tag!

It seems the world is against those over a certain height. You only have to cram yourself into an airplane or rental car seat to work that out. Pants, short pants and even shirts can also be hard to cram into – tall guys often have to buy larger fashion shirts as a result, but this can often mean the arms are too long causing them to blouse out unnaturally.

A tall man should avoid things like bright colors and vertical stripes. Just dress for the season and color must be universal and it all depends on how you pull it off with the rest of your look. There are many subtle ways to wear all the looks for a tall guy.

As a tall man you need to be comfortable in your clothes

Man Made Diamonds and Jewelry

Jewelry designs created from man made diamonds, has enabled the ordinary person in the street to enjoy wearing a piece of this type of quality fashion jewelry.

There are many occasions, such as when on a special holiday or for a particular event in their lives, that a person will treat themselves to a piece of fashion jewelry created with these diamonds, when they would not normally be able to afford diamonds, per say.

Due to the research of Apollo Diamond in Massachusetts, it is now possible to find a man made diamond, not only in a single crystal, but also in a variety of shades of colors, from blues to black.

By nature, crystals are not completely pure. However, impurities are purposefully added to the composition so that the properties of the diamond can be controlled, thus determining the size of the carat. Apollo expanded the growth of their carats sizes over the last few years and due to the sales of man made diamonds at a substantially lower price than mined diamonds, this has had a major effect on the jewelry trade.

Because of the affordability, toughness, and close visual likeness to

Designer Fashion Watches

A watch is an accessory that is considered as a necessity only but now as time passes by and with a number of designer fashion watches all coming out to please even the most artistic and fashion conscious individual, it evolve into a must-have for every fashionista. But how does it happen that we now have a designer fashion watch that defines who we are without actually talking about it?

Wristwatch all started with a pilot named Alberto-Santos Dumont. The history of watches started when Dumont requested Cartier to make a watch fitted for his profession so that he can use it whenever he is flying. So Cartier develops the first known wrist watch and named it after Santos.

Shortly after, the Santos watch was made available to the public. Thus since then, watchmakers began to design and improve on the quality of wristwatches until this business is not longer just for watchmakers alone, as top fashion designers also opened up their own designer fashion watches to satisfy the people’s need for a more classy and fashionable wristwatch.

From the simple functional use of a wrist watch evolved the more intricate designs of designer fashion

Fashion and Feng Shui

A Chinese art of Feng Shui counts 6000 years – as a tradition, it includes knowledge of architecture, aesthetics, astrology, geodesy and bio-energy. In metaphrase, Feng Shui means: water – wind. These are 2 main elements, including basic living processes of Earth. Feng Shui is very extensive, it brings information almost about everything: beginning from the moment of building a house and finishing with reading the smallest features of destiny. Feng Shui knowledge is based on the irrational, apparently, because it seems to be illogical, mysterious, but surprisingly exact. An eastern sage Osho said once: “Logic – is a small island in an ocean of irrational. Feng Shui knows laws of irrational.”

Tracing the connection between Feng Shui and fashion, one can notice with surprise, that fashion is also irrational, lives according to its own strange laws, but has its own exact rules and cycles.

In China, number 64 is considered to be very strong, in magic plan. 64 years – is a cycle of fashion! There are also additional cycles, for example 64:2= 32. If you look back in the history of fashion 32 years ago, you will discover that bell-bottomed jeans, hairdos and make-up,

The Rise of the Leather Man Bag

For many years the closest things men had to everyday bags that could be used for business or leisure were briefcases, and smaller rucksacks – often with a sport theme. What have now become known as ‘Man Bags’ may have been a relatively recent development in practical fashion in the UK, although they’ve been used by men for decades in other parts of Europe e.g. Italy. The modern Man Bag is essentially a bag which is likely to have several compartments for modern communication and business essentials e.g. mobile phones.

Some of the Driving Factors for the Popularity of Man Bags in the UK

Advances in technology and the increasing miniaturisation and mobilisation of communications tools, computers, organising devices and gadgets has meant that most men are likely to be carrying one or more of these items around with them on a daily basis. The changing work arrangements and patterns i.e. more work being carried out away from a main office / home working, and a rise in communications, IT, and service based industries have also contributed to the need for men to carry more technological devises around with them, as well as the traditional paper

Man-Bags

Man-bags. We have all heard the name and have seen fashion-forward men carrying them at the mall, but most people are still perplexed by their existence. Are there really designer handbags that are created for men or do guys sneak into the ladies department and pick one out for themselves? Are they considered fashionable or a faux pas? Are they an upcoming fashion staple or are they a slowly passing fad waiting to disappear? These are all frequently asked questions and we have the answers.

Let’s start with the most important question. Are there designer handbags that are actually intended for men? The answer is yes. Many designers have created entire lines of handbags just for men. These revolutionary bags first began to appear in the 1960’s on the catwalks of Paris. They were originally referred to as a man-case in order to give a more masculine appeal. While these man-cases did not catch on right away, they did begin to gain popularity as the pockets on bell-bottoms grew tighter and the idea of nonconformity flourished. In the 2000’s, Italian designers, such as Gucci, worked to attract male consumers by recreating the idea of the designer man-bag.

Men’s Fashion

Contrary to what society would have one believe, women are not flocking to the man with his pants at his ankles and 3lbs worth of jewelry hanging from his ears, arms, and chest.

However, these neat and conservative dressers are oftentimes overshadowed by the millions of men who commit fashion suicide on a daily basis. Tube socks with dress suits, ill-fitted suits, and mismatched or over-coordinated apparel are just a few of the fashion mistakes men make. Don’t be ashamed if you are perpetrator of these crimes against fashion. A sense of fashion does not come overnight. The following tips will help you become more fashionable with easy to implement strategies to help improve your wardrobe and overall appeal.
