2 Types Of Korean Men That We Love

As diverse as the world can be, you might think that the male population has also a lot of different classifications. But if you ask me, there is only two types of guys in this world. And that is the “Manly” ones, and the ones not so manly enough that I choose to call the “Cute” ones.

In the sense of fashion, these two types also has different way of dressing up. Here are a few fashion points that simply differentiates one from the other.

1. Manly/Classy Types:

These men are simply classy in everything that they wear and look put together in whatever ensemble they are wearing. Monochromatic colors and a classy fitted jacket or blazer is a common staple in their wardrobe. 

These jackets are in style almost every season. They can even pair them with slacks or even denim pants.

Something that is also in style among the manly types are the cardigans. Well we can probably say, if it’s not the jacket then it’s the cardigan in classic tones like white, brown, black, grey or navy.

Another key item in manly men’s clothing are their fitted long sleeve shirts that show off their lean and toned bodies (usually men who are in good shape will wear these). They usually wear them full or roll the sleeves up to their upper arms to show some of those muscles that they’ve been working hard on. 

So these are the manly types ,and their classic dressing will capture the hearts of many girls with their manly charisma.

2. Cutie Man types:

Now, this second type of guys are the ones who like to wear cool things comfortably and freely. Their fashion staples are usually the simple shirts, sweaters and denim pants.

They like to wear shirts paired with their tattered jeans or even jagger pants. Sweat shirts are also a common thing in their fashion.

Another key piece in their fashion is the beanies or snapbacks. These accessories help to enhance their style and cool factor.

In a more formal sense, these cutie guys can also move away from the baggy clothes. They also go for those short sleeved polos in bright colours and patterns, and they sweep the hearts of girls with their cute charm along the way.

So which type do you prefer?

There are a lot of reasons why these stars try to cover their faces. It might be because they are protecting their voices from the impending threat of cough and sore throat. Maybe because they lack make up, or don’t want to inhale anything that might risk their health; we don’t really know.

Essential Tips On Building a Great Style

Fashion Trends

In modern society, styles and fashions come and go in the blink of an eye. That said, you can learn to make sense of it all. You need not be lost about fashion, keep reading for more tips to keep ahead of the style game.

Classics Never Fail

For the bulk of the budget you have for fashion, buy classics and basics. Target items that are always in fashion, yet work with other styles as well. A black, basic pencil skirt is always in style and can be updated with jackets and tops that follow the trends of a particular season.

For instance, fitted classic white shirts are good investment. You can very easily dress up darker colored jeans by putting on a white shirt and classy high heels. You can also wear colored jeans, but only if you’re trying to achieve a casual look. To maintain your white shirts, bleach them to keep the look new and bright. Just make sure that you don’t mix it with any your colored clothing during laundry or bleach the wrong clothes on accident.

Invest In Good Classic Pieces, Go Easy With Trendy Pieces

It’s great to stay updated with the new fashion trends in the industry. Style is constantly changing, so keep up with fashion magazines to learn about the latest trends. This is not about following fashion blindly, as not every pieces in trend will suit your personality. Assess what trends will suit your style most and can be matched with classic pieces. As a rule of thumb, always spend less on trendy pieces because they come and go, but invest more in quality classics.

Good Fit Is Everything

Watch out for sizing. Never purchase an item of clothing without seeing how you look in it. Body measurements are not the guide for clothing sizes anymore. Every brand has its own fit. If purchasing your clothing online is your best choice, make sure you study the sizing charts on the website. Also make sure that all of the clothing you buy can be returned.

Don’t buy an item of clothing just because it is on sale for a great price. Remember, no dress or other clothing item out there is ever worth purchasing unless it fits your fashion sense perfectly and accentuates your body. It’ll just end up collecting dust in the closet because you won’t wear it, which is wasting your money.

Your Hairstyle can Make or Break Your Image

Many are under the impression that fashion only pertains to clothes. Hair is just as important as anything that is being worn and can make the difference between a great look and a bad one. You need to invest in proper hair care products and ensure that your hair style stays current and is a complement to your daily style.

Power Of Illusion

If you are wearing a plus size and want to look smaller, stay away from floral patterns with large shapes and flowers. Large shapes accentuate size, which is not flattering. Find a dress with smaller patterns to reduce the emphasis on your body size and more on the detail.

If you are overweight and want to look skinnier, wear a blouse in black or a very dark color over a dark-colored skirt. This will mask your look so that you are not emphasizing bulges. An elastic waistband in your skirt provides more comfort.

Style On a Budget

If money is an issue, don’t let it hold you back. Either spend more time hunting more stylish bargain clothes, or simply hold a clothes swap party with your girl friends. They may be willing to part with fashionable items they have tired of. Not only you are doing the environment a great favor, you can also gather some awesome fashionable pieces for free.

Your Signature Style

Create a style that is unique. Many people follow the trends set by others, but truly original fashionista develop their own sense of style. This may not work for everyone, but if you feel like you can handle it, people will admire you for doing your own thing.

Don’t let the remarks of others get you down. Not everyone has to look like they belong in Hollywood. As long as you dress in the way that feels comfortable to you, then others will appreciate your style.

There is no such thing as being perfectly fashionable. First, there are no perfect people, and it is an unattainable goal. If you focus on perfection, you lose the freedom to be yourself. Make your style your own and don’t try to be perfect.

How To Wear Loafers

Image Source

Loafers have been around for quite a long time. In fact, the first loafers appeared in the mid 1930’s as casual shoes in Norway. They were, and until now are, flat shoes with tassels instead of shoe strings. They are considered flats, but what distinguishes them from the others is that they are typically constructed with a moccasin construction and have tassels as embellishments.

Given that they’re casual flats with masculine and rugged details, here comes the big question for girly girls: Just how do you wear them?

Image Source

Dresses

Loafers look adorable when paired with floral dresses or earth-toned numbers. These slip-ons are very comfortable to wear when going around town to do errands or buy groceries. Shopping? You could do that too.

Tops

Loafers are versatile enough to be worn with any casual top. Dressier tops, those that are made of silk, chiffon, or lace, are typically more difficult to pair with loafers, unless you can tone it down with a casual khaki bottom, jeans or harem pants. Thus, we need to exercise prudence when making things dressier with loafers. They are made for casual wear, not for showy outfits.

Image Source

Bottoms

Loafers are made for casual wear, so it’s best paired with khaki pants, jeans, bermudas, shorts, three-quarter pants or capris. You should never paired them with formal work-wear like working pants or pencil skirts, as they will look totally out of place.  They look best when worn with casual bottom pieces that emphasize the legs, such as skinny jeans, mini skirts or shorts. If you want to avoid the overly casual weekend look of flip-flops and sandals, loafers can add a slight ‘formal’ touch to your look. Throw a blazer or cardigan over your top to give your look an extra oomph, and you can even wear this look to office on casual Fridays.

In conclusion, just because they don’t come in whimsical colors doesn’t mean that they can’t be any more fun than your ballet flats or your pumps. Loafers are staple pieces in your wardrobe, so make sure that you get your hands on a pair. Wear them with dresses, shorts, or wear them with skinny jeans- it’s your call. Nevertheless, it will not leave you looking like you lack style factor. In fact, they’re a pair of stylish shoes by themselves.

Quick Tips On How To Wear Skinny Jeans

You see them on cute, round bums and think that it’s too hard for you to pull off. Here’s a secret: skinny jeans are a staple. You might have your own doubts about this, but it’s quite easy to play around with your skinnies. All you need is a good color palette to choose from. Here’s how to pull them off:

Image Source

Stretch

You want to look for skinnies that have at least 30% polyester so that it allows a little stretch while preventing lumps and bulges on your legs. Jeggings are nowhere near skinny jeans as it’s more elastic and fragile than skinny jeans. The good thing about getting jeans instead of jeggings is that they last longer as they’re less elastic and hold their shape longer.

Fit

You want skinny jeans that follow the contour of your body. This being said, make sure that they cling nicely to the legs and waist. To know if you got the right pair, move around in different positions- sit down, bend over, walk, and raise your legs up one at a time. If the waist stays in place, you’ve got that covered. The legs and crotch should cling as close to the body as possible.

Color

If you are not that adventurous with bright colors, you can pick skinny jeans in three safe materials or colors: black, khaki, and denim. The wash should be simple. If you have bulky thighs, go for a wash that’s dark at the sides and gradually goes lighter at the center. Another option is to wear dark washes. If you have slender legs, faded jeans add width.

Shoes

You can pair skinny jeans with pumps and make your legs look like they go for miles. On the other hand, you can wear them with comfy ballet flats for a casual day doing errands. Wedges? Yes they work with these babies too. As for boots, whatever the length, the skinnies are willing to oblige. A word of caution though. Skinny jeans are tight, slimming, and slender. So it’s better to wear them with shoes that create width. Those stilettos are probably not the best pair of shoes to wear since they are too thin to balance out the silhouette of the skinny jeans.

Tops

When pairing tops with these jeans, you have a whole lot of things to consider. First, if you’re wearing pumps, go for dressier slim-fitting tops to pull the look together. You have a whole lot of choices when wearing flats, boots, or wedges.

One caution is that skinny jeans that to emphasis your bulges and tummy if you have got one, especially if they are low-waisted or the waist-band is a little tight. If you have such problem, you can hide them with a peplum top (flared ruffle attached to the waistline of a top or blouse), or a slightly looser chiffon/cotton top that falls just below your tummy. Since skinny jeans are skin tight, the loose top will be able to balance out your entire look.

See? Skinny jeans are not just for slim people with perfect bums. In fact, if you pair it right and choose the right wash, color and fit, it will work its magic on you.

How to wear High-Waisted Trousers

You see them in editorials and and runway shows. Then you start thinking that if that pair of trousers can make a size 0 model thinner, then maybe it’ll do the same thing for you. Right? No. WRONG. So how do you wear them? Read on.

Go long, and wear them with heels

Image Source

High-waisted jeans are supposed to make you look tall and lean, not short and stubby. Many women suffer the mistake of wearing high waisted capris or worse, high-waisted skinny jeans. While we all know that the extra tummy tuck is a welcome affair, it has to be balanced out by allowing the pant legs to fall down to the floor. Otherwise, your silhouette looks cut off somewhere in the middle and leaves the eyes longing for more length.

When wearing them, make sure your shoes are just peeking from the hemline. Thus, peep-toes look best with these jeans. Remember that the hem should be be half an inch from the floor and touching the top of the shoe.

Avoid puddles and bulges

Image Source

While it is not a good thing to keep these trousers short, keeping them too long is a bad thing too. When wearing them, make sure that there aren’t any creases or that the hem does not scrunch up even the slightest bit to the floor. Any  creases – what we call puddles- or folds make it seem that the pants are eating up the lower half of your body, and this makes you look too small for your clothes.

You want a slim-fitting pair of trousers, so make sure that the waist feels nice and snug. However, do not go too tight or else you’ll end up looking like you ate too much for lunch. On the other hand, going too loose on the waist will give you wrinkles on the crotch area, and believe me, this is unsightly. One way to tell if the waist fits perfectly is to sit down when trying on the trousers. If it doesn’t wrinkle and allows you enough room to breathe, then go ahead and buy it.

No slim fits

Trousers with high waists are meant to be wide legged. Skinny jeans that are high waisted look like the proverbial mom jeans. Enough said.

Wear slim tops

Image Source

You want to balance out the width at the bottom by wearing body-hugging tops. This looks sexy especially when it’s a simple tank top or plain shirt. Make sure they’re tucked in as well. Wearing a top that is either flowy or bulky upsets your proportions.

High-waisted trousers are definitely the hardest bottoms to pull off. It goes two ways- either it looks like a fabulously crafted material or your mom’s jeans from the 80’s. Like most sophisticated clothing, there are ways to wear this pair. Do it the right way and you look sophisticated and classy. Worn the wrong way, even the most expensive designer jeans become mom jeans.

4 Pretty Ways To Wear Head Bands

When you think or see headbands, you think of the prim and proper girl in class who was most likely to get a scholarship at the best universities. Why is this so? Headbands reinforce the stereotype that prim and proper gals are supposed to wear them.

Well then, think again. Headbands have graduated from high school and in fact can be used by career women. There are a number of ways to wear them, in fact. Here are 4 pretty looks you can achieved with head bands.

1) To basically push back your hair

Image Source

The basic purpose of using a headband is to push back the hair. The locks can be curled or stick straight, but the headband serves a single purpose. It opens up the face thereby making it a favorite among makeup artists.

2) Over a ponytail or a bun

Image Source

Headbands worn over ponytails or buns are simple yet they provide a little more oomph to the hair do. Sometimes they are used to add a little height to the crown, while at other times they are used to pull back the bangs or any other stray hair. Whatever option you choose, ponytail or bun, make it a little messy. You’re after the sexy factor, not the schoolgirl charm.

3) On the crown

Image Source

This accessory was a popular choice among celebrities who love the bohemian look. Followers include Nicole Richie, Paris Hilton, and Taylor swift. When worn with beach waves or stick straight hair, they look vintage- more like in the ’70’s. When worn with voluminous curls, they’re romantic.

4) Simply placed on top of the head

Image Source

This works best if your headband has an accent piece on the side. On the side, I say, and not on the middle. It could be a bejeweled figure, lace, a satin ribbon, or stones. The band is placed carefully on top of the crown without messing up the hair.

Your mane is perhaps one of the most noticeable aspects when it comes to first impressions. Given this premise, it is just right that you accessorize when you find it lacking personality. Gone are the days when headbands are a symbol of stereotypical television characters or school girls’ accessories. It is as elegant for the working woman as it is for the blushing bride. Many women swear by its romantic, classic, and elegant look. So is it not just appropriate that it should be included in a lady’s closet?
