MEN’S STYLE: DRESS UP DENIM.

MEN’S STYLE: DRESS UP DENIM

 

 

 

Hello 🙌

Hope everyone is enjoying their weekend 🙂

In the words of Elio Fiorucci,

“Denim is a love that never fades.”

Denim is more popular now than ever due to its versatility, durability and comfort. For most of us – men and women alike – denim has become the centre of our wardrobe. Each one of us has our favorite pair of blue jeans that feels like second skin. Jeans are a smart, sensible choice and you do not have to give up on your favorite pair to dress stylishly.

✒Here are six easy summer outfit ideas for men to look sharp in blue jeans –

1. Jeans + Shirt.

Style Tip: If you are a conservative dresser, the best pair of jeans for you is a straight legged, well fitted (not skinny), neat (no wash/ distress), dark colored pair of jeans.

Style Tip: Pair a close fit plain crew neck tee, in a neutral color, with dark denim for a simple yet stylish look. Wear with tan suede shoes to smarten the look.

3. Jeans + Suit Jacket.

Style Tip: The formal feel of a grey suit jacket provides a deliberate contrast to the casual feel of jeans. Wear with a tucked in Oxford shirt and tan accessories for a dapper look.

7 THINGS YOU SHOULD NEVER WEAR TO A WEDDING.

7 Things You Should Never Wear To A Wedding

A little disclaimer before we begin. This beginner’s guide is not for the traditional Indian wedding with the traditional desi attire.

Most people believe that only women turn to bridezillas or zombie vampires as they fuss over every aspect of the wedding especially the way they look, whether it is their own wedding, their best friend’s, office colleague’s, relatives near or distant or they are just a plus one. But this belief does not imply that the men get a get-out-of-jail free card and are let off the hook to DRESS and behave as they please.

Men too require to plan their ensemble depending upon the location, venue, and theme of the wedding and their relationship to the happy couple. Of course the general tone is formal but still it is better to consider all scenarios while preparing.

TO HELP MEN TO MAKE MORE RATIONAL AND WISER DECISIONS WE HAVE COMPILED A LIST OF 7 THINGS YOU SHOULD NOT BE CAUGHT DEAD IN AT A WEDDING.

1. JEANS:

However low key the wedding, even your most expensive, uber cool and super stylish denims won’t make the cut. Not even with a blazer or a sport coat. Go for dress PANTS instead.

2. TUXEDO:

Confused. This is because the Groom and his guys in the wedding party are generallyDRESSED in a Tux. It is like girls can not wear white to the wedding. The bride should be the only one wearing it. Same rules apply here. Go for a formal suit instead. It would be really cool if you can enquire in advance what colors the wedding party is sporting on the wedding day and avoid those too.

3. SHORTS:

Even if it is a breach wedding please avoid wearing shorts. If the weather is too warm or the wedding is at a beach then opt for linen PANTS or light weight chinos.

4. OSTENTATIOUS CLOTHING:

Avoid

  • Band T-shirts
  • HolidaySWEATERS
  • Oversized clothing
  • Loud printed ties
  • Angsty/Slogan/Graphic Grafiti T-shirts
  • Bedazzled anything

5. SWEATPANTS & HOODIES:

Avoid joggers too. I am sure you can stay without them for a day. However athletic or fitness freak you are abstain from flaunting it. Even runaway brides are DRESSED elegantly.

6. AVOID ALL BLACK:

The monochrome look is a classic but all black is best reserved for funerals and other grave occasions. It is a wedding for heaven’s sake, lighten up and add a dash of color to make your monochrome look pop.

7. ATHLETIC SHOES:

A strict No No. Go for DRESS SHOES, brogues, and loafers.

6 Rules for a Perfectly Tailored Suit.

Because there are few things worse than a bad one.

Putting on a great suit is transformative. Your shoulders are broadened; your lines, longer and leaner; your waist, that much trimmer. You look great, you feel great. That is, assuming you got the right suit and had it properly tailored. As any man who’s spent an evening in a boxy rental knows, there are very few things as good as a great suit. There are—in the sartorial sense at least—fewer things worse than a bad one. Since even a modestly priced off-the-rack number can look like a million bucks with the right nips and tucks, we’re here to help with six essential rules for getting a perfectly tailored suit.

1. Hem Your Trousers

This is the number one place most guys go wrong when it comes to tailored clothing. Even A-List stars—who should know better—have been known to leave things far too long. Though you don’t necessarily need to embrace the ankle-baring aesthetic espoused by designers like Thom Browne, all that extra length isn’t doing anything but making you look shorter and sloppier. Opt for a very small break (the edge of your pants should just brush the tops of your shoes) for a look that’ll stand the test of time, but still feels modern.

2. Make Sure the Shoulders Fit

The shoulders of your suit jacket should feel like they’re hugging your own. If they’re noticeably tight, the jacket is too small. And if the shoulder seams are sagging past the natural line of your body, like they do for all too many workaday types, it’s too big. The shoulders are the one place that even expert tailors are hesitant to mess with: It’s difficult, expensive, and can ruin your suit. Nearly everything else can be altered, but if the shoulders aren’t spot on, it’s time to return it to the rack.

3. Hem Your Sleeves

Slightly less pervasive than the problem of pooling trousers—but no less pernicious—is that of over-long sleeves. Your jacket sleeve should end a quarter-inch to a half-inch before your shirt sleeve does. All the better to show a sliver of cuff. If your jacket sleeve is hitting your knuckles, it’s way too long. This is an easy and cheap fix if the buttons on the cuffs aren’t functional; your tailor will simply trim from the cuff up and then move them. If the cuffs feature working buttons, it’s a bit more labor-intensive and pricey. The sleeve has to be taken up from the shoulder. Still, better than the knuckle-grazing alternative.

4. Watch for Collar Gap

You might not be able to see it, but everyone around you will. The collar of your suit jacket, if not properly fitted to your neck, will sit away from your shirt collar, leaving a gap. This can happen for any number of reasons, and if it’s not too severe, a tailor can usually fix it. But anything more than a small gap can be a problem. Watch out when you’re buying, and unless you’ve got a particularly skilled tailor that you trust completely, steer clear.

5. Take in the Waist of Your Jacket

Many suit jackets are made with a “democratic” cut, which is a nice way of saying they’re designed to accommodate men of a certain girth around the midsection. If you aren’t one of these men, it also means that your jacket will look boxy until you have your tailor take it in at the waist. Don’t get too aggressive about it, though. Remember, you still need to be able to move in the thing. Aim for being able to comfortably fit a closed fist between your jacket and shirt when the top button is closed.

6. Slim the Sleeves and Taper the Trousers

A lot of guys have tuned into the idea that going narrower on the pants is a great way to elongate the lines of a suit and create a tailored silhouette. Take a page from their book and taper your own trousers. One thing you might not have thought of is doing the same for the sleeves of the jacket. It’s a little more complicated because your tailor will have to deal with the lining, but it’ll make for a much more polished look in the long run. So, you know, worth it.

 

3 Places In The World That I Want To Visit.

3 Places In The World That I Want To Visit

Traveling has been on my mind for months. Being able to change locations and live somewhere else around the world is life changing. People that travel often have a lot to say about it, traveling is one of the best feelings. Now that there  is social media people are able to see travelers from around the world show their experiences to millions of people. Most people spend half of their life traveling and working at the same time, being able to do this in this day of age is amazing and I feel that more people should start traveling more frequently. A few months ago I started considering traveling soon. I have been in California my whole life and the only place that I have been out of state is Las Vegas, but I live in Southern California so going to Las Vegas and back isn’t quite the adventure that I’m looking for.

Places That I Want To Visit 

Tokyo, Japan


Japan has been on my list for a while, actually ever since I was a kid I had always wanted to visit Japan. The culture is amazing to me and I’d love to be a tourist one day in Tokyo, I had many friends that have been there and they always tell me that it’s one of the greatest experiences they had.

Paris, France 


Paris is every travelers desination, I would love to visit soon and even live there for a few months. I learned the French language so I would be able to communicate with people there.

London, United Kingdom 


Growing up, I watched a lot of tv shows based in London which made me fall in love with the UK. Traveling around the UK has always been a place that I knew for sure that I would love to visit in the near future.

Visiting other countries around the world is something that I really have a desire to do. Many of my friends and family have traveled, I don’t think that it would be long until I will be able to start traveling and really getting a chance to see and experience the world and learn new things!
Have you ever wanted to travel is traveling?

What is Optimistic and How to Be More Optimistic What is Optimistic and How to Be More Optimistic

 

Both old school wisdom and modern day science say that optimism is one of the greatest indicators of how successful you’ll be. This is supported by scientific research which found evidence that optimistic people do enjoy a higher quality of life when compared to pessimists. The study highlighted that optimism promoted a healthier lifestyle, greater flexibility, and better problem-solving capacities.

What is Optimistic and How to Be More Optimistic

Let’s try to discover what being optimistic means and what optimistic people do differently.

What is Optimistic Person?

Life has its ups and downs. It can be a fun ride, but you also have some awful stuff happening in life. There is, however, a group of people that stands solid as a rock, no matter how tough it gets. Optimists. They get back up on their feet after each failure and tell you with a smile on their face, “it wasn’t that bad, was it?

An optimistic person sees the glass as half-full rather than half empty. And in situations in which life gives them lemons they always have sugar, water, and salt at hand to make lemonade. Being optimistic can have a profound impact not only on your view of life in general but also your physical and mental health.

Studies are showing that in the long run, having a positive outlook on life will make you happier, healthier, and wealthier while raising your quality of life. It’s key!

Positive psychologist Martin Seligman says “Habits of thinking need not be forever. One of the most significant findings in psychology in the last twenty years is that individuals can choose the way they think.

Another positive psychologist Sonja Lyubomirsky says “All that is required to become an optimist is to have the goal and to practice it. The more you rehearse optimistic thoughts, the more ‘natural’ and ‘ingrained’ they will become. With time they will be part of you, and you will have made yourself into an altogether different person.

How to Be More Optimistic

Studies published in the Journal of Abnormal Psychology suggest that positive and negative attitudes might be hardwired into our brains. The researchers found a brain marker that distinguishes negative thinkers from positive thinkers. That’s good news for optimists, but what about the other people out there who swing to opposite end of the attitude continuum? Are pessimists doomed to negative thinking, worry, and anxiety forever?

Fortunately, the answer is no, and if you do tend toward pessimism, there are plenty of inspiring reasons to work on creating a more optimistic attitude. Optimists do better in almost all areas of life.

Reframe your frustrations.Researchers at the University of Kent in England found that people who strived to see the positive side of things that went wrong — rather than venting to friends about what went wrong, or blaming themselves for small failures — were happier and more satisfied at the end of the day.

“If you didn’t get that promotion or you failed an exam or a relationship disintegrated, what can you learn from it? Failure can be a huge gift,” Lombardo says.

Just say “om.” Recent research suggests that people who meditate daily have more positive emotions than those who don’t. Mindful meditation works just as well, says Richard O’Connor, Ph.D.

Look for inspiration. there are several ways you can surround yourself with inspiration, such as spending time with smiling babies, or reading inspirational books,encouragement quotes, and affirmation.

Give yourself daily “done wells.” Get in the habit of recognizing “done wells.” Take a few moments every day to ask the question, “What have I done well today?” This simple gesture reinforces optimism on a daily basis. The answers accumulate and eventually help you develop self-confidence, which is extremely important for success.
Play a 30-second “movie” of your life daily. Create an imaginary movie reel of your ideal life, including specific details about how you look, how you feel, where you live, what you’re doing, what you’ve accomplished, and what your life is like. Set aside 30 seconds every day to play this movie in your mind. Set an alarm on your phone to remind you to do it. This simple mental training exercise will instantly boost your mood and transform the way you think about yourself, your potential, and your future.

Inspire yourself with a smile. If you expect the worst, the worst will happen.  If you let things bother you, they will.  But if you smile, you’ll feel better.  Studies have shown that putting a cheerful smile on your face can trigger a part of your brain that actually makes you feel happier and more optimistic about the present and future.

Make a happy list. Every evening, write down three or four great things that happened that day. A recent study in the Journal of Research in Personality found that writing about positive experiences for just 3 straight days has lasting effects on mood.
Focus on solutions, not on problems. If you find yourself obsessing about a problem, feeling negative, or experiencing self-doubt, change your focus by asking: What’s one thing I could do differently that might make this situation better? Replacing problem-focused thinking with solution-focused thinking immediately gives you a sense of forward movement, possibility, and hope — the foundations of optimism.

Give love, receive love. Love is the greatest force in the universe.  It’s a treasure that people would give anything for, yet it costs nothing to give and receive. There is an endless supply, and it can be extended to family, friends, and strangers at any moment.  It increases positivity and acts like a shield against negativity.  It forgives, heals, encourages and inspires.

Be Grateful. There is always something you can be grateful for, so acknowledge it, say it out loud.  My favorite is “thank you for my breath”

Do you struggle with maintaining a positive attitude when faced with life’s challenges? Are you ready to live your life with gratitude and abundance every single day? Unlock the power of daily gratitude and create the life you were meant to lead with 30 Days of Gratitude. This program offers insightful tips and indispensable habits that can help you on your journey to achieving your personal best in all that you do. Filled with thirty diverse topics, this book encourages you to take action based on what you have learned on each day.

Whether you have been practicing daily gratitude for years or are just beginning your journey of gratitude, this journey introduces you to new concepts that can enhance your life.

The more you are aware of your negative reactions, the more frequently you change to more positive thinking, and the more you look to surround yourself with inspiration, the more optimistic your life will be.   Once you are in this more positive frame of mind, the easier it is to make the decision to live a fuller life—one with more fun, more joy, more excitement,  and more adventure.
