5 Ways for Men to Dress Slimmer

Larger guys can easily give the impression of being much thinner than they are, simply by wearing certain clothes.

And the Jacamo large mens clothing range has plenty of items to choose from that will result in a genuinely slimming effect.

  Here are 5 tips to help you choose the right Jacamo plus size mens clothing.

1.       Stripes

There is a golden rule with wearing stripes... Horizontal: No. Vertical: Yes.

Vertical stripes will make your silhouette look longer and slimmer.

Horizontal stripes, however, will have the opposite effect and make anyone look larger than they are...

2.       Jackets

A single-breasted jacket will make you look far slimmer than a double-breasted one; this is because people’s eyes will automatically focus on the centre point.

Also, try to avoid jackets or blazers that are double-vented as this will draw unnecessary attention to your bottom!

3.       Sizes

NEVER try and squeeze into a size that is too small!

Wearing clothing that is overly tight will look terrible and you will feel very self-conscious.

4.       Belts

Belts are a very important accessory!

You should always wear one as it will hold your waistline and ensure that your trousers hang correctly!

5.       Colours

Wearing contrasting colours will immediately draw attention to the joins between your clothes, i.e. your stomach... 

Stick to shades that are more similar to one another.

Keeping Up with Trends in Girls Fashion

     One of the most important things to girls is fashion, particularly if a girl is in her teens and going to college where the majority of people talks and wears the latest trends and styles everyday. Here are some suggestions and tips on girls fashion, which will help you to stay up with the fashion trend throughout the year.

     The majority of designers will take out at least two collections per year, spring and fall, while the rest will introduce four; spring, summer, fall and winter. With numerous different styles and unique designs for boys, girl, men and women you will notice that first and foremost it is very challenging to stay up with every seasonal trend for one primary reason; all styles do not work for everyone.

     How many times have you watched a fashion show and thought; who can wear that dress besides a model. The reality of this is that some of those styles that are shown are made specifically for modeling purposes only and the entire selection is slightly different than what you actually see on the runway. Nevertheless, the number one most important rule is to wear clothes that suit your weight, height, character and personality.

     Ways To Always Dress Fashionabl

     Classic fashion is always in style and if you do not want to make a lot of mistakes when dressing up for a social event, you can always rely on classic clothes. Nevertheless, girls are not always interested in wearing classic clothes so, what is the best way for them to always be fashionable?

     An easy way to make girls fashion work well for you is to select from an assortment of clothing that suits you best. For instance, if a specific color suits you well, you can buy a blouse and wear it with a pair of jeans or black pants, which do not have to be in the same type of collection.

     An additional way to keep up with the latest girls fashion is with accessories. This way you don’t even have to keep up the latest trends. It is important that you realize both good and bad points when it comes to your own body so you can work with it and improve you best features.

     No person is perfect, including gorgeous models you watch on the runway, since they all have flaws that are cautiously covered up with either make up and/or the clothing that they wear on the runway.

     Hence, you can make the fashion work for you by using accessories such as a scarf, belt, shoes or hair clips. Shoes are a whole other category when it comes to girls fashion and they function on the same principals of accessories and clothes. You shouldn’t acquire a pair of shoes simply because they are in fashion but because they work to complement your personality and style.

How To Choose Fashion Accessories

     In relation to fashion accessories, you will find that a wide variety of differing products are included. Fashion accessories, such as fashion clothes and such items, come in a number of differing sizes, shapes, and styles. You can find fashion accessories that are created for young kids, teenagers, men, women, small sized, and plus sized people. A few of the many fashion items that you might find at one of your local fashion shops or on-line stores are described here.

     The most popular fashion addon items is jewellry. As was previously discussed, fashion accessories are designed for all varieties individuals, regardless of age or gender. For teens and children, fashion jewelry items that are fashionable often include colorful pieces, including charm necklaces or charm bracelets. In terms of men, a very popular type of jewellery often includes large pendant necklaces, many of which display a cross or another popular or significant symbol. As for ladies, trendy items of fashion jewelry consist of earnings, rings, necklaces, bracelets, pins, and so on.

     Another type of fashion accessory that you may have an interest in buying is a purse or even a handbag. Teens and women most commonly own purses and handbags. A purse is often used to describe a bag which is smaller or compact in size and handbags tend to be a little bigger. Handbags and purses come in a number of differing styles; therefore, it’s common for many ladies and teens to possess more than one purse or handbag. Actually, many individuals out there prefer to match their fashion accessories, including their purses and handbags, with the clothes that they wear.

     In conjunction with handbags and purses, travel bags can be considered a fashion accessory. Travel bags are much like purses and handbags, except you will find that they’re often created for both females and for males. A travel bag might include a smaller bag that can be used as a carryon bag for an airplane ride, a diaper bag, as well as a laptop carrying case and so on.
Shoes and boots are also considered a fashion accessory, although many do not necessarily think them to be. Most often, females’s shoes and boots are considered as fashion accessories, as opposed to men’s shoes and boots. Certainly one of the reasons for that is due to the large choice of females’s shoe styles that you’ll find available for sale. For instance, it’s more than possible to find athletic shoes, casual sandals, elegant sandals, flat dress shoes, high-heeled shoes, and so forth. As with handbags and purses, many women own multiple pairs of shoes and many endeavor to coordinate their footwear, particularly for work, with the rest of their ensemble.

     Another one of the many differing types of fashion accessories available for purchase are belts. For a lot of men and boys, belts aren’t necessarily considered a fashion accessory, as much as they’re a way to hold pants up; though, the same does not actually ring true for females. women’s belts come in a number of differing sizes, shapes, and styles. That is definitely one of the reasons why females’s belts and belts which may be designed for kids and for teens are often considered as fashion accessories. One can find belts out there that are created for wearing with an informal pair of jeans, as well as a pair of conventional kaki pants for work.

     Belts, handbags, purses, travel bags, jewelry, and shoes and boots are just a few of the countless fashion accessories that you may be able to find for sale at one of our local fashion shops or even online. As a reminder, fashion accessories are a great way to spice up any wardrobe, especially one that can use an updating.

How to Wear Mens Trainers....Properly!

At one time, mens trainers would only be worn in the gym, but not anymore. Everyone is fully aware of how

comfortable this type of footwear is and trainers are now seen wherever we go. But of course, it isn’t just

about comfort... if you are going to wear a pair of trainers, then you will want them to look good as well. Here

are a few bits of advice to help you to get it right and to avoid an unpleasant run-in with the Fashion Police...

Classics are Good!

Classic mens trainers will go with just about any type of clothing, so they are always a very safe choice.

A basic, single-coloured design, such as the Converse lace-up, will look great with oodles of different

garments; right from jeans or Chinos to pressed or tailor-made trousers.

Watch Out For ‘Hybrids’!!!

In sci-fi movies, alien/human hybrids should normally be avoided at all costs. They are ugly, horrid and intent

on taking us all over! Well, it is pretty much the same situation in the world of footwear; except perhaps, that

hybrid trainers are not normally intent on world domination...

Seriously though, clunky genetically modified cross-bred mens trainers really aren’t cool. In fact, they will

often look downright geeky. It is advisable to completely avoid this type of footwear.

‘(Don’t) Sock it to me Baby!’

Visible Socks + Mens Trainers = Uber Bad Move. If you do need to wear socks with your trainers, then invest in a pair of low-cut ones. This will mean that your feet will remain comfortable and sweat-free without causing any insult to the more ‘style conscious’.

After all, some of us have principles...

‘Roll Up! Roll Up!’

If (and only if) you can wear your mens trainers without any offensive socks on show, then you will be able to

take your image a step further (excuse the pun)...

Try donning a pair of cropped trousers (or rolling up the bottoms of your jeans) to draw greater attention to

your trendy pumps! By creating a hem that reveals a small amount of ankle, you will give a tailored silhouette

to your trainers, making them stand out (sorry, another pun) even more!

Shelling Out on the Wrong Clothes...

In the world of stylish footwear, there is only one other crime that is equally heinous to having visible socks...

and this is wearing your mens trainers with a shell-suit. You may find it amusing to think of someone dressed

in this manner, but it really isn’t a laughing matter. Shell-suits were the thing to wear with a pair of trainers at

one time (as unbelievable as this may seem), but thankfully we have now moved on.

If you are ever unfortunate enough to have a brush with anyone wearing this ridiculous type of outfit, then it

can have a genuinely detrimental effect on your day. So always choose your clothes wisely and try to have a

little respect for other people!

Man Fashion: Trendy Mens Winter Coats Report

There’s just something about cold weather and a well-made coat that makes a man look sexy. We are sure you know the reason why  the right coat gives a man bulk – which makes him look powerful on a subconscious level.

We never write about winter coat in the past, not that we can recall. But we do receive some e-mails on this and we thoughts is best we share some of our thoughts with our readers here. As with all fashion, however, there are Do’s and Don’ts when it comes to winter coat fashions, we will not going to touch on this as we believe there are some bloggers given a very good advices. But our rule of thumb is go for true and natural, but there are men who can get away with something out of the ordinary.

Today we’re going to take a look at our 3 favorite styles of mens winter coats.

Classic Navy Pea Coat / Reefer Jacket

This is our favorite, started from Europe, or to be precise, European sailors and this are very well received in both Europe and US now. You can find them with affordable price range. Most fashion designers have their series of pea coats. We still stick to Armani, which make a lovely nice cut with superior material.

Beside, wool, you might find similar designs with leather or suede. In our opinion, we have seen all kinds of men wear pea coats on the street, but we yet to see any silly on anyone. Businessmen or students, this jacket really goes well with any style from jeans to dress slacks, boots to oxfords.

Go for what color? the best colors choices are black, navy and charcoal. But you can go for red if you really find this match you well. :)

Traditional Sheepskin / Shearling

We are sure some of you might have one of this. Very common in US. We find them look good on everyone, be it student or yuppies. They usually come in natural or chocolate, and both look fantastic, especially when they come to the mid-thigh.

The only drawback, this shearling jacket is really warm, and so we suggest you only wear this when it's really cold weather out there.

Leather Bomber Jacket

WOW!! another favorite, we're sure Tom Cruise in Top Gun had some influence on our fashion sense, do you agree? Originally created for pilots, which eventually became part of popular culture and apparel. These always come in several styles, such as A-1, G-1 and G-2. If you ask us, we always find G-2 is the smarter choice!

They come in a variety of colors, but what our recommendation? Yes, black or very dark brown. Try to avoid a bomber that has too much elastic at the waist and arms. I think they look best without, as you can recalled from Top Gun movie. But we think the elastic probably serves some purpose for a true pilot but we are talking about fashion here, so this elastic will only minus point rather than add fashion sense to us.

So that’s our winter coat advice. In short, we always find most mens winter coats look goods on you as long as they are simple and of good quality material.
