Men’s Formal Wear

1. Style

Changes, but you can’t go wrong with a single-breasted, solid color suit in black, grey or navy blue and always remember a single-breasted suit will make you look slimmer and sleeker in appearance.

In men’s formal wear a stylish suit can conjure up a number of images, all of them positive.

A suit can make you look powerful, mature, conservative, or sexy. Remember, most women love men in suits!

2. Fabrics and Patterns

Wool is always a safe option when buying a suit. It looks good and wears well.

Worsted wools are lightweight for spring and summer. Gabardine wools are heavier for winter. Wool Crepes are lightweight with softer finishes. Flannel wools are heaviest. Patterns for interview suits are limited to solids, stripes (pinstripe, chalk stripe, beaded-stripe, multistripe), Glen plaids, and checks (hounds-tooth, windowpane, and herringbone).

Picking The Right Shirt

Generally men with narrow faces can choose collars that are wider, to help broaden their faces; conversely, men with wider faces should choose collars that are narrower, to help lengthen their faces.

Ties

Suits come in basic styles and colors, but ties let you show your individuality within a formal look.

If you want to make a bold statement wear a patterned tie with a patterned shirt, make sure that the color schemes are the same and that the patterns go in the same direction.

Finally, don’t forget the Length: It should hit the top of your belt buckle and the deal width of ties is between 3 and 4 inches.

Men’s Formal Wear Combining Tie’s Shirts & Suits

When choosing a jacket-shirt-and-tie trio, match its level of color contrast to your personal colouring.

Your colouring consists of your complexion and hair color.

If you’re coloring is high-contrast i.e. dark hair and light skin, or vice versa–your jacket, tie, and shirt combo should be high contrast, too. But if your hair-hide contrast is softer and lighter i.e. you’re blond or gray-haired with pale skin, or dark-skinned with dark hair–you should go for lower-contrast clothes.

Two different scales For Balance When you’re combining two like patterns in the jacket-shirt-tie triangle, they should be of different gauges.

If your suit has pinstripes 3/4 inch apart, your tie should have significantly broader or thinner bands. If your suit is a striped one (with lines more than an inch apart), your shirt’s stripes should be narrower and closer together.

If you wear two different designs within the lapel triangle–say, a checked shirt and a striped tie, or a striped suit and repeating-medallion tie–they should be different scales in size If your shirt has a narrow stripe, your tie needs a wider stripe i.e. pair large with small.

De Emphasize

Choose clothes that de-emphasize your extremes.

If you’re short, look for strong vertical elements: pinstriped suits, two-button jackets. If you’re very thin, choose a jacket with wider shoulders. If you have a heavier build then Wear darker colors and go monotone from top to bottom.

Watches

The first thing to look for in a man’s watch is a large face, as these designs are generally accepted by everyone as looking stylish.

Get a nice belt

Don’t forget your belt you want quality, a good quality belt doesn’t have to be expensive and is money well spent.

Your belt color should be coordinated with your footwear – black with black, brown with brown.

Shoes

Black is the traditional safe color for work but Brown or ox blood colors can also look stylish.

You can also use a variety of styles including loafers, wingtips, round-toe, or the trendier pointy-tipped shoe.

Shoes are no place to economize on quality. For men, shoes are the final detail and are one of the areas all women notice.

Perfect Ballroom Dance Dress

Finding a dress that fits one’s body type is important as it will make one look elegant. Find out your body type. Generally, there are four body types. They are:

Banana or rectangle: A straight body type where the waist is less defined. The measurements between bust and waist or hip and waist are only a few inches.

Apple or inverted triangle: In this shape, the shoulders and bust are wider and hips and waist are narrower giving an inverted triangle shape.

Pear or triangle: In this shape, hips and waist are wider and bust and shoulders narrower giving the shape of a triangle.

Hourglass or double triangle: In this shape, the waist is well defined. But the hips, as well as shoulders, are wide.

Choose a dress which suits the body by balancing out. For example, a person who has wide shoulders can choose a ballroom dress with a wide skirt. This will balance the wide shoulders.

The dresses of ballroom dances are mostly bright and have intense colors. However, there is no compulsion to choose bright colors only. While choosing the dress, go according to the body color and the color of the hair. For example, electric and very bright colors go with black hair. When it comes to blonde hair, lighter colors go well. Nowadays pastel colors are also becoming a famous choice for ballroom dresses.

The design should be such that it highlights your features. For example, if you have collar bones which stand out, choose a design which highlights them. If you have a narrow waist, choose a dress which highlights it. Highlighting the features can make the dress look more attractive and beautiful and it draws more attention.

There are many types of ballroom dance dresses available. Some examples are; Latin dresses or rhythm dresses which are short and just below the knees. This type is used to show off legs. This type will exaggerate the body movement and makes the dance look more attractive. Another type is standard dresses or smooth dresses. This type generally consists of long ballroom dresses like gowns. One can also wear a shirt skirt combination in this type. Another type is advanced Latin dresses which are much more splendid and advanced than the fundamental dresses.

Info of Silk

Such was the beginning of the breeding of silkworms 5000 years ago, and even today the principles remain the same.

So what exactly is silk and how is it made?

Silk is the fine thread with which a silkworm spins its cocoon. The silkworm pupates in its cocoon and emerges 20 days later as a moth. The thread which is produced by the spinning glands of the silkworm is the finest and strongest natural fiber in the world.

Silk is a protein fiber, meaning that is chemically quite similar to human skin. Because of this, silk is an ideal “second skin”.

So what is it that makes silk so special and sought after for clothing?

* Silk Shines — Because of silk’s unique sheen, colors radiate and assume a luminescent character. This gleaming however is not the only quality of silk.

* Silk Caresses — Thanks to its extremely fine and smooth fiber structure, silk flows in a supple and soft way.

* Silk Insulates — Silk cools and warms simultaneously. Silk garments are perfect for summer and winter. Silk can be worn as a second layer underneath to warm without being bulky. It can absorb up to 30% of its weight in moisture without feeling damp. Silk will absorb perspiration while letting your skin breathe. Silk contributes to your well-
being.

* Silk Wears well — In spite of its delicate appearance, silk is relatively robust. Its smooth surface resists soil and odors well. Silk is wrinkle and tear resistant, and dries quickly.

* Silk is safe and Non-Allergenic — Because of its protein structure, silk is the most hypoallergenic of all fabrics. That means it’s less likely to cause allergic reactions to the wearer. For people with skin allergies silk can be a God send.

* Silk Flatters — Silk has been celebrated throughout history: Princesses are clad in silken robes and noblemen in silken capes. 2000 years ago, Chinese poets wrote of the harmonizing virtues of silk clothing. Silk is naturally wrinkle-resistant, glossy, hypoallergenic, and easy to care for. Other fabrics can only claim these qualities after being treated with additives.
