Look for When Buying Trendy Boots

First, look at your budget. Some boots can be pretty expensive, well over one to two hundred dollars. And some boots are more in the line of affordable shoes, ranging in the $45 to $80 range. So consider the budget. A higher price does not always mean higher quality; often you are just paying for the brand name.

Look at the make of the boot, particularly if the bottom is made well. Boots are made for walking and a lot of walking can wear through some heels very quickly. You want to make sure there’s both good traction and the heel is sturdy, especially for high heel boots. The last thing you want is one breaking off!

Consider the shaft of the boot, especially if you or the person you are buying for has particularly thinner or thicker legs. Boots are often made somewhere in the middle, but others have narrow shafts or wider calves to accommodate. Check out the … Read the rest

Dress Younger Sensibly

Less Cleavage

As we age, the skin on our chests is a dead giveaway of our age. So hide that cleavage! If you want to wear skimpy clothes in a bid to look younger and more adventurous, then choose clothes without any plunging necklines, or even deep v-necks.

Instead, go for plunging backs, one-shoulders, off-shoulders, and so on.. you get the gist, right?

Brighter Colors

No, you don’t have to go technicolor, or fluorescent to look younger. You just go in for a simple color analysis, and choose the bright colors from your own color season to look fabulous. Your color season will have the colors unique to suit your natural colorings – skin, eye and hair, and will help you camouflage the signs of aging on your skin like fine lines, dark spots, etc.

Use the color season to choose bright make up colors also.

Softer Fabrics

Don’t choose fabrics which irritate your skin, in your clothes or your … Read the rest

History Of Denim Jeans

The adventure begins with the blue in blue jeans. Indigo dye was a plant derivative before a synthetic was invented by a German chemist the late 1800’s. One of the earliest dyes with references going back many centuries BC, the primary source had been India. Import was expensive and dangerous as a long land journey so Indigo was a luxury item referred to as blue gold. This and other rare commodities inspired the search for less expensive and time-consuming trade routes by sea with the great sea explorations of the 15th century. Vasco da Gama is credited with discovering the sea trade route to India which made indigo suddenly readily available and inexpensive throughout Europe.

Now the adventure switches to cotton cloth which in the 1700’s became very popular due to its easy availability and cheap price as a direct consequence of the rise of cotton plantations and slave labor. Cotton cloth also turned out to have a unique quality … Read the rest

Argyle Sweater

An argyle sweater vest is something that has been popular with men since ages. It is the unique knitted design of diamond shapes in various colours and patterns that render it unique and different from other sweaters. These ‘argyle’ designs are not very easy to create and do require plenty of knitting expertise to churn them out with amazing consistency and variety. The technique itself is called ‘intarsia’ and has been in practice since the 1500s. Earlier, these designs were primarily created on socks as well as on vests. But it was only a matter of time before a wider canvas in the form of sweaters beckoned and the creators were quick to recognise the huge potential this unique design had in store for them. Since then, argyle sweaters have been associated with comfort and plain old world charm and they continue to remain popular with most men.

Men in Specs

In the 1950s, early rockers like Buddy Holly gave wearing glasses a cool factor, a sensibility that expanded during the 1960s, when it became hip to be “real” about one’s eyesight. John Lennon squinted through much of his time with the Beatles, until he finally donned a pair of wire-rimmed Windsor glasses. Wire-rimmed glasses became fashion de rigueur for optically-challenged hipsters in the late 1960s and early 1970s. During the same era, Elton John became intrinsically linked with his over-the-top eyewear.

In the mainstream media of the 1950s and 1960s, glasses were still being portrayed as decidedly un-cool, something worn by out-of-fashion intellectuals and nerds. All that Superman needed to do to hide his superhero identity was to throw on a pair of glasses, instantly transforming into “mild mannered” Clark Kent. That association of glasses with intellect and manners, however, helped businessman and politicians embrace the look as part of a professional persona.

In the United States, the image of … Read the rest
