Women have tons of different options such as pants, skirts, shirts, dresses, halter necks, and plenty of other options. Men have the suit and tie or the t-shirt and jeans. They are also limited in the colors they could wear. While there are plenty of other options for men, they can’t wear them without at least risking a second look. However, there is a new form of fashion that is being pushed. It is called the men’s rompers. They have been making a lot of waves in fashion. Many people have different views on them. However, a lot of people who have been observing men’s fashion over the past few decades may agree that it may be time for a slight adjustment in what is available.
For most people, men’s fashion is mostly boring. For one thing, men have not been known to be the more fashionable group. Part of the reason was that there have been limited options for men. It seemed that the only way to dress well is to wear the suit and tie. Being bold and risky meant wearing the same style in a different color. Fortunately, there are some stores that have been making efforts to bring about change in the men’s fashion industry. Fast fashion chain H&M is one of the companies that have been bringing out different forms of clothing for men.
With men’s rompers, it can be expected that men are going to be seen running around in those for the summer. On social media, it seems that a lot of women are actually welcoming this change. Typically, when men’s fashion attempts to bring something different, it is often met with backlash from people who seem hell bent on confining masculinity so tight that it winds up suffocating.
If you have clothing items that you hope to keep for a long time, you naturally want to take good care of them. But many people are inadvertently ruining their clothing items in several different ways.
First, many people dry clean clothes too often. Dry cleaning is absolutely necessary for certain materials and some types of delicate clothing. But if you get your dry-clean-only clothing dry cleaned more than necessary, you could be wearing down the fabric and causing premature decay of your clothes.
Next, some people aren’t dry cleaning their clothes enough! In other words, they aren’t washing clothes that should be going to the dry cleaners in their washing machines at home or at the Laundromat. When a clothing item says that it is dry clean only, you need to follow this guidance. It’s there for a good reason, and washing your clothes at home can be detrimental to the overall structure of those items. Furthermore, you shouldn’t even be washing dry-clean-only clothing at home on the delicate cycle. Again, professional dry cleaning is absolutely necessary for specific types of materials.
Lastly, many people use iron settings that are too hot. This can ruin thin and delicate material that may melt or become misshapen when strong heat is applied. Always keep your iron on a low setting at first. If you need to turn the iron up to a higher setting in order to get out wrinkles and creases, you can do so, but don’t start on the absolute highest setting possible.
Make sure to heed all of the warnings tags on in the inside of your clothing. By doing these things, you will keep your nice clothing looking good for as long as possible so that you don’t have to go shopping for new clothes every single season!
With spring around the corner, it’s time to start shopping for new and fun styles. Here are the top accessories that you’ll definitely want to have in your closet this spring.
You probably don’t see platform shoes too much during the winter, but as soon as the warmer months arrive, it’s time to get out these trendsetters. Platform shoes can give you some height, and they can even also help with your posture. Plus, they’re much more comfortable than regular high heels.
- A big floppy hat
With the sun out, it’s time to protect your eyes and the delicate skin on your face, neck and chest. This means getting a great floppy hat to wear on long walks or to the beach.
- A cute umbrella
Spring means rain, so this naturally tells you that you’ll need to get a super cute umbrella for your handbag or book bag! Consider getting one that is clear for better visibility and so that people can still see you and your cute face.
- Rain boots
With rain coming down, an umbrella is absolutely necessary, but drain should also be in your closet! Rain boots are cute no matter what brand they are, but yellow boots beat all the others in terms of classic style.
- A comfy cardigan
Every girl should have a comfortable chunky cardigan to wear when it’s chilly outside but not too cold. Look for one in the neutral color like beige, brown or black.
You can find all of these styles and more online or at your local mall. The new season usually brings about a lot of coupons and sales as well, so make sure to embrace these as you shop. Numerous stores are also trying to get rid of their winter inventory, so you can find some great styles for next year’s winter right now too. Let’s go shopping!
Tommy Hilfiger is legendary throughout the fashion world for his preppy, even luxurious fashions. We can now get a better glimpse into his artistic mind by seeing how he designed one of the places where he lived.
According to the Los Angeles Times, fashion icon Tommy Hilfiger’s home has recently placed his home for sale and listed online for all to see, and it is incredible.
The Golden Beach, Florida mansion carries a $29 million price tag and it is not hard to see why. His home is a piece of art itself. The 14,000 square foot mansion sits right on the oceanfront with around 100 feet of beach.
As if having your own ocean view is not enough, the outside is complete with an infinity pool overlooking the Atlantic Ocean.
Moving inside, the interior is devoted to pop art. Every room filled with pop art and bright colors, and crazy furniture. The mansion itself is a work of art. After purchasing the house in 2007, Hilfiger and his wife hired world famous interior designer Martyn Lawrence Bullard to give the exterior and interior of the house a major facelift.
How fabulous does the inside look?
It features bathrooms with scratch and sniff wallpaper, a built in bar with disco ball hanging overhead, plenty of Mickie Mouse memorabilia, a gym, and a movie theater just to name a few amenities.
Tommy Hilfiger sold his iconic brand six years ago for the hefty sum of $1.6 billion and has cut down the time he spends working on fashion. With homes like these, it is easy to see why.
When summer rolls around, if you live in an area that tends to be hot, you’ll want to take a few tips from the experts so that you feel more comfortable. Summer clothing is easy to find, but not all of it is worth your time and money. Use the following tips to pick out the best clothes for your summer style and help yourself feel comfortable no matter how hot it gets.
- Choose light fabrics.
The first tip is to choose light fabrics that are breathable. These include materials such as linen, cotton, light chambray and bamboo. Fabrics that wick away sweat when you’re exercising are good as well. Stay away from thick fabrics that will make you sweat. These include wool, thick knits and flannel.
- Lose weight ahead of time if you need to.
Often, just being overweight a few pounds can make you uncomfortable in your clothes, and dropping only four or five pounds can be great for your self-esteem and how you physically feel. If you need to lose weight or would like to shed some vanity pounds, just try to do this before the summer starts. It will help you be motivated for light, skin-revealing summer clothes!
- Find fabrics that flow.
Tightfitting clothing is not the right idea for summer. On the other hand, you don’t want anything to be too big for you. Flowing fabrics that offer a moderate amount of extra room around your body will be ideal. Even if you get hot and sweaty, you won’t have to worry about your clothes sticking to your body and making you even more uncomfortable.
- Don’t be afraid to show some skin.
Lastly, even if you’re slightly embarrassed to show a little skin in the summer, don’t cover your entire body up just for that reason. Use the other tips mentioned to keep yourself more comfortable, and once you do that, decide that you’re going to be okay bearing your upper arms and your knees. When it’s the hottest day of the year, you’ll thank yourself!

Every woman should have a great denim jacket and her wardrobe of clothes. This is a great staple piece that you can wear with all different sorts of outfits, including jeans, slacks, skirts and dresses. Moreover, you can keep a denim jacket for years to come without it going out of style. This article will present some great ways to find an excellent denim jacket and a few tips for maintaining your jacket so that it doesn’t deteriorate or need mending.
How to find a great denim jacket
As you shop for a denim jacket, look for a piece that is made of high-quality denim. You might have to pay a little bit more for this, but it will be worth it in the end because it will last a long time. You should also make sure that it fits nicely and isn’t too snug. You should be able to make large circles with your arms when you have it on without straining fabric. In addition, make sure that the color of the denim is one that you like. Naturally, there are a range of denim shades to choose from. Pick one that goes with the majority of your clothing items.
How to take care of your denim jacket
You might think that all you need to do to take care of your denim jacket is to wash it every once in a while in the same way that you take care of your other precious clothing items. Actually, this isn’t true. You’re not supposed to wash denim jackets because they can become misshapen and shrink. Instead of cleaning your denim jacket in the washing machine and dryer, you can actually freeze it to get rid of any bacteria and build up.
Simply folds your jacket and put it into a plastic bag. Put it into your freezer for 24 hours. Once it has been in your freezer for a whole day, take it out and put it somewhere where it can thaw. That’s it! That’s all you need to do in order to clean your denim jacket once every few months and keep it looking great and in style.
In order to dress like an adult woman, there are certain steps that you must take because it doesn’t just happen overnight. You have to make it happen!
In your teens, you might have been used to dressing however you pleased in short shorts and short skirts or cropped tops. In your 20s, things change, and it’s important to change the way that you dress so that you look more professional in anticipation for a career. These tips should help you dress your best.
How to Dress Like an Adult in Your 20s
- Don’t show so much skin.
First, make sure that you are dressing rather modestly. You shouldn’t be showing too much skin in the 20s. If you’re going on a date or out with friends, this is different, but even then, try to limit the amount of skin that you show. If you want to wear a lower top during a night out, that’s fine, but don’t wear a short skirt or dress as well. If you have a short skirt or dress on, make sure that your neckline is modest.
- Buy some staple pieces to keep in your closet.
Next, make sure that you have several staple items in your closet. You should have a little black dress for formal occasions, a nice classic trench coat for winter, a nice coat for spring and fall, a few pairs of nice fitting jeans and several pairs of shoes. In terms of shoes, it’s a good idea to have a quality pair of tan, leather flats as well as a pair of leather booths for winter and a classic pair of black heeled pumps.
- Take care of your clothing.
Finally, make sure that you’re taking care of the clothing that you have. In your teens, you may have been used to wearing your favorites tops or dresses until they were basically rags, but in your 20s, this isn’t the way you want to go. When something becomes deteriorated or has tears, either fix it or get a new one. You can keep these things to wear around your house, but don’t plan on wearing them out and about unless you want to look like a bum.
Some in the fashion business call this twinning, like the time you see a mom and young daughter dress similarly alike. For example, Coco Austin loves matching outfits with cutie-pie daughter Chanel, four-months-old, and recently the pair posed for a selfie, wearing black tee shirts and camouflage-printed pants. People magazine noticed the twinning and followed up with a story about the mother with the sweetest, photogenic baby girl.
Twinning has also recently turned up across the pond in London. Consider this one: The Duchess of Cambridge was twinning with her step-mother-in-law. That’s right; Kate and Camilla dazzled in almost identically matching deep green lace gowns at public events.
The color green has been a hot shade this spring, especially if you follow the Pantone Color Institute.com which sets the trendy shade every year for the world in fashion and design. Their choice is called Greenery and is more of a yellow-green shade. Still, green is prominent everywhere these days, and both duchesses have been decked out in various tones of the lovely gem color.
Whenever Kate wears a certain article of clothing, women around the globe notice immediately and then hurry to purchase the fashion or copy it as close as they can.
The pretty lace green number she wore recently was designed by Temperly London and featured a floor-length look with a sheer high-neck bodice and long sleeves and a thin satin bow that cinched in her waist. Kate turned heads in the formal dress as she attended the National Portrait Gallery Gala in London. She paired the classic look with new sparkling green earrings by Kiki McDonough, a gold clutch from Wilbur & Gussie and Jimmy Choo gold shoes. Her brunette locks were down and softly curled and bouncing as she walked, without a hair out of place.
Earlier in the week, Camilla the Duchess of Cornwall, led with the style choice in a green lace frock that hit mid-calf and showed off a scoop neckline.
Kate was gorgeous in green, signaling to her fans that the color is on-trend and ready to purchase now.
