Fashion During The Sydney Fashion Week

Sydney Fashion Lifestyle is being pushed by the Sydney Fashion Week designers through their endless creative designs and remarkable fashion tips that almost all Australians love to idolize. Little black dresses have become one of their feature designs. These designs are something, maybe because it shows elegant and classiness, that people still dwell in it. Old style and old creations cannot, also, be disregarded. Those ancient styles have become the inspiration of the fashion trends these days.

The Sydney Fashion Week seems to focus in architecturally and geometrically contoured designs. The clothes, dresses, and other fashion related accessories like stilettos etcetera were shown dramatically and way stylish compared to any other Fashion Week. Sydney Fashion Week has also caught everyone’s attention due to the spunk that they have put in the styles of their fashion. In addition, the hairstyles that they have used in their fashion were inspired by the punk and tall rock and roll hairs of the ’80s.

Now with all the glamour and style, the big intriguing question is, does the creativity and the originality of fashion moving forward or backward? I do believe that a fashion week should be the time to celebrate an all new brilliant creation and showcase new ideas that can be used as one of the fashion tips in the next few years. However, as what I have observed, what happens is that they are proclaiming something that is already there. With the world putting their eyes on Lady Gaga and her experimental metallic wardrobe, fashion designers began making clothes and accessories that are accentuated with such design and presented it as one of the latest trends of the year. If this event keeps on happening, there is a greater chance that fashion will start to find its integrity falling behind. I say keep the fashion creations original and creative!

The reinvention of the classic little black dresses is fantastic. Classic designs have actually established it but this kind of situation just implies that the creativity of designers is losing its touch and it is a little bit saddening that although we have to thank the past fashion designs for today’s clothes, designers should still explore on new creations and the fashion lifestyle should try its best to make everyone see that they have the power to change this cycle from happening.

I am pretty sure everyone is still looking for and waiting for someone who would design something extraordinary and will not conform to the traditional designs and would become a front – liner in setting a new fad for fashion. Don’t get me wrong – I love fashion. But it seems to me that fashion nowadays lack some sort of excitement with their designs.

So what I am looking forward to the next Sydney Fashion Week is that designers would actually make something that will not only make a statement in the fashion industry but also something that will set a new fashion lifestyle for everybody. It should be something that could make people express themselves because the clothes we are wearing defines who we are.

I hope considering these smart fashion ideas and style tips will help you improve your sense of style and personality in no time.

Come Up With a New Hip Clothing Design

Now I’m going to start off with talking about researching. Although I am starting off with discussing researching, I believe that in the end, coming up with a design or name for your clothing line is the most important and finding the right name or correct design won’t happen if you haven’t did your homework on what slang, lingo, and designs are the best sellers in the fashion world. When looking for the hottest lingos and designs that are out at a certain time or season you need to enter the fashion world. What does that mean? That means that you need to window shop. Go to the stores in your same design field and see what they have in their stores. I would go to the stores and places that are well known places to shop because those will be the stores that are most successful. Look what types of trends they have, unique styles they use, even the type of material they use so you can put ideas in your head of the type of material and designs you would like to use when creating your clothing.

Then after you have an idea on what your strategy is going to be when creating your clothing, you will need to go to the next step by checking out what’s going on in the social media. That means looking at the latest fashions in magazines and looking at the trends that celebrities are wearing. By doing this you can scope out what the hottest fashions and designs they are wearing because what the celebrities wear is what everyone else is going to want to wear. Designing clothing mirroring what these A-list celebs are wearing would most likely be a great seller for your design. You also should watch the latest shows on MTV, VH1, and other TV shows in that genre because it has been proven that they always wear the hottest new brands and clothing at all times. Also those shows have all the new hip sayings and lingos being used in today’s society which could be helpful when coming up with a cool hip name for your brand.

Once you have done all your research you can start designing and naming your new clothing line. When making a name for your clothing line you want to make sure you address a few things. First, you need a name that describes your brand of clothing. Then you need to make sure that it is catchy so that when someone walks by it and sees the name it will grab new customer’s attention. Secondly, you want to make sure that your name is unique and not just a saying that you heard on the streets, TV, etc. Let’s take the word swag for example. A lot of young people have been using this catchy phrase to describe a person’s style of how they dress or present themselves in the past year and you think you want to make that your name brand for your clothing. You would not just call it swag you would make up some type of hip combination of words with swag in it to make it unique and eye catching. Some examples of that could be like “LA Swag City” or “Swag R US”. Names like that will give you the unique authentic look you will want for your clothing brand to be a hit.

Now when it comes to picking a clothing style you have to pick a type of image you want your brand to be. Do you want it to be a skater look or a preppy look? Do you want your clothing to be men’s clothing only, women’s clothing only, or unisex? These are the types of questions you will need to consider when you make your design. If you’re selling preppy clothing with a complete skateboard theme it will confuse customers and may not sell as well. All these questions need to be considered before you design your brand. When you finally design your brand, have picked what category of style you want it to be, and have everything ready to go in creating your clothing line you will have one more obstacle to face. That is getting your clothing out there for everyone to see. Starting off normally people don’t have the money to just open up their store. So what you do is you start putting your clothes online for everyone to see.

The most important thing you should do first is start a website for your clothing so people can shop and buy your clothing online. After that you should promote your clothing by making a social media page for every social media engine that is out right now. That means Facebook page, Twitter page, Instagram, Vine, etc. That way people will get to see your clothing, groups of people will begin to talk about your clothing line amongst each other, and eventually it will create brand awareness and draw customers to your store. Coming up with a new design is always trial and error so do not get discouraged if your first design doesn’t sell right away. Once you get the hang of it, after time, your products will get better and sell more with the more practice you have. I think all designs are unique and cool in their own way but without a catchy name and good marketing skills your designs will be useless

How to Dress Yourself Fashionably

Women in their 30’s are fluctuated between their personal changes and their careers. When a woman is in her 30’s, she is not a girl anymore and she has to be mature both in her family and her career. She would be several children’s mother and begin to be responsible for her children, husband, parents and friends. She is so busy maintaining the balance of the family and career that she wouldn’t have enough time to care for her appearance. That’ll be bad. In modern society, out of fashion means you will be less competitive both in your career and family. So, this short article is going to give some fashion tips for women in 30’s.

Women over 30 are different from 20’s girls. You have much to think about. Now you are a career woman and you know how hard it is to earn money, and you are a mother and also know how hard it is to raise up your family. When buying things such as clothes and accessories, you will be more practical. That doesn’t mean you should wear cheap fashion, with these guidelines, you’ll be able to be fashion.

My first point is how to choose fashion clothing. Women in 20’s are young and they can wear any strange clothing to show their personalities, but women over 30 can’t wear tacky clothes at any cost. Since you might have to take care of kids and you can’t spend much time dressing up or washing clothes, your clothes should be comfortable to wear and easy to clean. Sometimes you have to make a distinction between what to wear at work and what to wear off duty. If you are not required to wear work clothes, wear bright colors such as peach, light blue blouses with pants or A-line skirts to show your passion for your work, but your skirts should at least end blow knees. Pay attention to this: bold colors don’t mean bold styles. If you have already got married, stay away from Low-cut or short clothes such as Low-cut dresses and miniskirts when you are at work. After work, you can dress bright loose T-shirt with Capri pants or a simple blouse with long skirts. When attending evening banquet, you should dress a formal gown that fit your feature and status.

Then keep your eye on the makeup and accessories. You can’t try new cute styles now, no bowknots, no cute earrings. 30’s women should choose jewelry that are elegant and little mature. Avoid carry glitzy handbags, purses or concise handbags are recommended. Maybe you have to wear heels at work, but after work, you should take care of yourself and choose a comfortable pair of flat footwear. As for makeup, you should avoid doing heavy makeup such as bold colors for eye shadows and eye lines. That doesn’t mean a totally plain look devoid of any makeup is good. Your makeup helps you look graceful and femininity.

In fact, you don’t have to pay too much attention to your dress, just keep yourself natural, simple and comfortable.

Spring Men’s Fashion

I wouldn’t say that I’m one of those miserable people, who seem so put out by the winter season but I sure am glad when we see the back of it! Don’t get me wrong, the winter isn’t entirely unbearable however it can be a bit boring when you’re trying to look as stylish as possible.

Winter style is good but when you’re limited to knitwear and coats so thick you risk looking like the kid out of Home Alone; it can get a bit mundane. With the spring however, although the weather isn’t 100% warm, the ability to ditch the countless layers and where something other than brown can be quite refreshing to say the least.

Whether you’re into your fashion like me, whether you try to keep up with the latest trends as much as possible or you just go with the flow; the coming spring season brings with it an endless number of style opportunities. You don’t have to be completely outlandish in your style choices but this spring there is no reason why you cannot look like a well-groomed gentleman that knows exactly what he’s doing.

Ready to get a bit braver with your wardrobe choices; here are the top tips to keep in mind this season…

    • Runway – The 2015 Spring/Summer runway shows have been inspired by the 70’s. I’m talking lots of denim, bright ombre colours and some very brave print’s. These look great on the runway and have really got people talking but complete looks might not work so well for the average Joe. Whether one of the trends appeal to you or all of them do, try not to dive straight in, take it a step at a time and mix and match. In an attempt to look exactly like a runway show you could end up attracting attention for all the wrong reasons.
    • Shape – There are a lot of great items that both high street and men’s designer labels will have available but you have to remember that not every item will work for every man. Again tying in with the above point, don’t overdo anything just because you’ve seen it on the runway. Perhaps consider trying one thing at a time and see how you feel; particularly if it’s a new material and fit that you’re not used to. From skinny denim jeans to tight tees and tailored short jackets; not every style suits every man so practice and get used to what your body type best.
  • Invest – I love high street brands but whatever the season I always try to ensure that I invest in at least one designer pair of shoes. It seems a bit much but what helps a man’s style stand above the rest is the quality of his footwear. From quality footwear for the office to a pair of stylish trainers or brogue’s that I know I’ll use all summer; whatever the season and whatever my personal style choices; investing in the right quality footwear can help me stay a step above the rest.

With spring around the corner, you don’t have to be a style guru to know that now is the time to really bring your wardrobe to life. From embracing the latest trends, to sticking to what suits you best, to always ensuring that you always have lasting quality in your choices; fashion is always unpredictable but by staying one step ahead, you can ensure that whatever season arrives, you’re style always leads the way.

Essential Beauty Tips for Men

It may sound strange to be discussing beauty tips for men, but men are just as concerned about their appearance as women. However, they may not be aware that there are many helpful ways to enhance the impression they portray to others. This is not only important when enjoying the company of women, but also vital for business and social settings. Here are three essential beauty tips for men that one would be amiss to ignore.

1. Physical Grooming — The first area that should receive attention is physical grooming. Men often feel that the daily shower and shave process is all the cleansing needed. This is not true. Everyone, men and women alike should pay special attention to good facial cleansing morning and night, including weekly facial masks to cleanse pores to prevent blackheads. This is definitely not an exclusive feminine grooming need. Following thorough cleansing, trim or otherwise remove any wild hairs on the eyebrows, nose and ears. Most barbers perform this trim as part of the regular haircut, but the need will often arise between barber visits.

Concerning the shaving process, another tip is important. Men should either be cleanly shaven or wear a neatly trimmed beard. The stubble look portrays a look of laziness and is no longer fashionable. Experiment with aftershaves and colognes to find the right fragrance for your body chemistry. Men should always smell nice, but the wrong or too strong a fragrance will be offensive.

2. Cosmetics (You Heard Me!) — The next area of beauty tips for men may be surprising. Most men think that wearing makeup is not even to be considered. However, there are makeup products made especially for men and one of the most popular is called a guyliner, which is regularly used by many celebrities. Using a small amount of dark eye shadow on the eye lids will emphasize your eyes and produce a smoky and sexy look. If you have uneven skin tone on your face, a little foundation can be used to blend away the blotchy look. And keep a tube of lip balm with you at all times to keep your lips moist, especially if you hope a date will end with a goodnight kiss.

3. Context-Driven Style — No list of tips would be complete without addressing clothing. The most important consideration is the type of occasion for which you will dressing, from an elegant restaurant, a serious business meeting or a movie date. Every man should possess at least one high quality suit, with appropriate shirts and ties. If you are unsure of the right style, enlist the help of knowledgeable staff at a fine clothing shop. Clothing does not have to be expensive, just well fitting and stylish, but the correct clothing is certainly worth the price. When dressing, to help ensure you are wrinkle free, hang your clothing in the bathroom while you shower. The steam will remove any wrinkles.

Incorporating a few of these beauty tips for men into your daily regimen will make you stand out in a positive way and give you the natural confidence that will make you look good as well as feel good.

Fashion Guide For Men

By the time men reach their thirty’s many are settled at work and at home and if this is your situation you may have let your appearance become less of a priority as other issues take over. For this reason it is very easy to find yourself stuck in a bit of a style rut during your thirty’s. You may tend to stick with the same hair cut, that has served you well for the last few years, and find that your wardrobe is a little lacking in ‘current’ pieces.

The good news is that you probably know what you like and dislike, and what kind of ‘look’ you are comfortable with Those awkward teen and twenty years of experimentation and fashion disasters are behind you so you can move forward with confidence.

Here are some top tips on how to look great in your thirty’s:

Polish your style. Consider people your age whose look you admire. What is it about their hair style and what they wear that keeps them ahead of the game? This can be a great way to gain inspiration for your own updated look. A lot can depend on body shape and skin colouring so take this into consideration when pinning down a style that you feel happy with.

Out with the old. Go through your current wardrobe and remove anything that is clearly unlikely to get another airing. While 90s fashions such as military boots have resurfaced recently there is no excuse for combat trousers!

Key items. Make sure you have work and formal wear covered and invest in some of those other essential items, like a decent jacket or coat for colder days and some superior quality shoes.

Fit. Pay attention to size. If you have outgrown a treasured item don’t wear it just because it used to look good, invest in something that flatters your frame as you are today.

For your go-to shirt for fall, a season less, multipurpose piece from All-Son is a must, wear it as a traditional shirt or roll up the convertible sleeves, fastening them to the button-tabs when you need to get your hands dirty. To leave you the option of adjusting your sleeves, a vest is an ideal item to layer over this top.

Military Cardigan
