Power of Neon Colors

The bright neon colors are a real thing for many young women. It won’t be wrong to say that neon trends were all over this Fashion Week. The power of neon has drawn its inspiration from old-school fashion. This 1980s trend have made a remarkable comeback on the runways. The French fashion designer, Marine Serre, demonstrated the bold color rave culture. It’s an obvious call for individuals’ attention and reactions. The neon color splash is a huge contemporary trend from hair to nails to clothing. Women have pulled off great festival fashion looks by using the power of neon. Literally, I cannot wait what 2020 has to offer for neon collection!

 

Checkers Mode

The checker is all about black and white check prints. This strong classic pattern will be coming back for the year 2020. In my opinion, the best thing about this minimalistic design is that you can create amazing looks. It is relatively easy to mix and match with any color, shoe design, and different type of accessories. You can either go for formal and casual looks with checker prints. It all depends on your personal sense of styling.

All Matchy-Matchy

According to well-reputed fashion designers, too much matching from head-to-toe is not a good thing. I agree that monochromatic is a boring thing to go for but, it works for festival fashion clothing. Ladies pick out one pattern or one color to create a whole look. This scheme is an incredible idea for generating a lovely harmonious masterpiece. Matching ravel clothing for women is going to be a thing in 2020.

 

Glowing World

The shine and glow are going to rule the next year as well. I am sure you do not want to miss out glowing rave and shiny festival outfits. The white and neon-colored clothes is a good idea to wear for backlight parties. These glow-in-the-dark colors can promptly boost your mood in the holiday season. The reflective pieces from glowing in the night and shining in the sun are going to be an eye-catching trend. You can wear funky jewelry to add more sparkles to your look.

 

Fishnets

It won’t be wrong to say that fishnets are here to stay for the long run. They never go out-of-date and has made it way for the next year as well. This trend has always standout in other areas of rave and festival clothing. Fishnets come in socks, dresses, leggings, tops, crop tops, and even full bodysuits. Rave clothing websites and in-stores have added lovely fishnet designs to shop. These pieces have a high demand and sell out quickly. Fishnets are well-adopted outfit to wear for fun day.

Expert advice on what to look for when buying an expensive suit

*Collaborative post.

When it comes to shopping for a stylish suit, it takes a lot of thought and a good eye for fashion. A suit is a wardrobe necessity for almost every man so it is worth investing a little more in a couple. You can wear a suit to the office, a wedding, christenings and even on a date! If you opt for a cheap suit, it is likely you will be replacing it in a few years, so it is worth spending more to grab quality suits.

Not everyone knows exactly what to look for when it comes to buying a new suit… And how can other people tell that you’re wearing the best? CT shirts, experts in suit design, have created this guide to make your purchase the right one.

The materials

When it comes to suits, the materials used determine the quality of the suit and how long they will be around for.

It is best to avoid suits with labels that state it has been created with a wool-blend or man-made materials, instead go for natural fibres. You should avoid Polyester as it retains a lot of heat, is less breathable and creases easily. A suit with 100% wool is something that you should look out for — these suits are versatile and ooze comfort. For a lustre look, often silk or mohair (a silk-like material made from the hair of the Angora goat) is added and this gives a luxurious shine to black suits For extra movement and comfort, a high-quality suit is often made with a small amount of Lycra and this improves its elasticity.

The ‘Super’ value is also an indicator on the finery of the material. The Super is a way of indicating that the wool is of high quality and the higher the number, the finer and lighter the cloth will be.

Not many people will go as far as considering the suit buttons and whether they are made from a durable material. Plastic buttons are prone to breakage and chipping — imagine if you brush against a wall or table, it will be the buttons that take the impact. Another high-quality material that is often used for making durable and long-lasting suit buttons is corozo nuts.

 

The design

Over time, a suit should mould to your individual body shape to convey a look that is truly unique.

Some weaves are considered as higher end than others, but this choice is largely personal preference. The patterns are created in the suit by interweaving different coloured threads in different ways. The ‘twill’ weave is considered to be stylish — this has a diagonal line of raised fabric and a silk-looking finish. The ‘herringbone’ also gives a smart look— this is an intricate V weave that creates a smooth feel.

Canvassed suit jackets are a popular choice, they’re created with layers of material that sit between the outer suit fabric and the inner lining. This tailoring technique helps the suit maintain structure and shape. What you should look out for is a ‘floating canvas’ — this is where the middle layer has been stitched to the fabric loosely so that the suit is able to mould to your body shape and move when you move.

Look at the lining of a suit for a clear sign on how well it has been made. Despite popular belief that an unlined suit is cheaper than a fully lined one, it actually takes more effort to create an unlined suit as the stitching and cut of the material is exposed. However, lined sleeves improve your ability to slide the jacket on and off.

The details

A well-informed shop assistant will be able to help guide you through your purchase, identifying which tiny details of the garments have the most impact on the style and fit. It can be the tailor’s own way of integrating quality into their work.

The suit lapels are the folds on either side of the opening across the chest. One detail that can indicate the quality of a suit is the lapel roll — this is the fall and curl of the lapel from the collar to the first button. If the suit is one of many rolled off a production line, it is likely that the lapel will be completely flat against the jacket and the roll will be almost non-existent. In a high-quality suit however, the lapel roll will look like it has been carefully curved — giving the jacket more texture and a better appearance.

The back vents will determine how freely you can move around in the suit, and most importantly they will determine how comfortable the garment is. Choose suit jackets with twin back vents on the back of the jacket to improve its flexibility and range of movement.

Another feature to look out for on a suit is the stalk loops. This is a traditional tailoring feature which neatly keeps your flower stalk tucked away. Although it may not be a necessary feature for everyone, it shows attention to detail that’s likely to be an indicator of a good suit.

Look at the buttonholes carefully. Cheaper suits can often have frayed buttonholes as they haven’t been stitched with delicacy. Small details like this are big giveaways as to how your suit has been made.

Cufflinks: The Historic Accessory That’s Making a Comeback

*Collaborative post.

Quality cufflinks are the absolute embodiment of subtle sophistication. A strategically selected pair of cufflinks can make the kind of statement that goes beyond almost any other accessory. Even where fine jewellery and luxury watches are concerned, there’s something about a stunning set of cufflinks that carries a powerful and memorable message.

But where did the world’s collective interest in these simple decorative details come from? At what point did cufflinks make the transition from functional to fabulous?

A Brief History of Cufflinks

There is evidence of cufflinks being worn right back in the 15th century, though it wasn’t until around 300 years later that they became commonplace. It was during the 18th century that men began taking more of an interest in formal dressing, at which point the middle classes in particular took a shine to cufflinks.

Later in the 19th century, the industrial revolution saw cufflinks enter mass production and become comprehensively affordable for the first time. With that being said, it was only the upper classes and royalty who could afford coloured cufflinks and those adorned with gemstones. In fact, Prince Edward VII of Wales is credited with popularising elaborate and exclusive cufflinks, having regularly worn a bright and beautiful pair from Fabergé.

Creativity and experimentation hit their stride throughout the 20th century, though the decline in formal dressing among modern men saw cufflinks take something of a backseat. In doing so, cufflinks (once again) became increasingly associated with elegance, sophistication and dressing to impress. Rather than being an everyday accessory, they were saved for special occasions or perhaps more importantly, worn only by those who take great pride in their appearance.

 

Why Cufflinks Are Making a Comeback

As recently as the early nineties, you’d have been unlikely to come across a large selection of quality cufflinks in the average clothing store. You’d have certainly found it difficult to find a dedicated cufflink department or a manufacturer of bespoke cufflinks custom made to an exact specification.

This, however, is changing before our very eyes.

In super-stylish circles worldwide, cufflinks are making a comeback for a couple of reasons. For one thing, style-conscious men have stopped wearing ties, opting for a slightly less formal overall look. How do you achieve a polished, professional and personal look without a tie? You finish your suit with a pair of captivating cufflinks.

Throughout history, cufflinks have existed as a small detail that nonetheless carries a powerful message about the wearer’s flair and sophistication. They are by no means considered mandatory or even the norm, which is precisely why they carry such appeal for the connoisseur. You don’t need them and nor are they expected, and that’s why they make such an impact when you wear them and wear them well.

We no longer live in a time where it’s necessary to spend a small fortune to take home a luxury pair of cufflinks. Even if you push the boat out for a bespoke pair made exclusively for you, you’re still looking at a relatively affordable investment.

Not to mention, a priceless investment in your style, sophistication and perceived personality.
