Fret not, because we’ll giving you tips on how to wear your clothes warmly but still in style this winter.

First up, the jackets.

Jackets have different kinds of thickness and one that will best warm you on a winter time are the Fur Jackets. As baggy as you think they might look, they pretty much give you that comfort and warmth you are looking for to fight of the cold bites of winter.

In order to warm up your legs this winter, you can wear thick pants or leggings, but some people just can’t compromise fashion and still want to wear their shorts and skirts in winter.

As such, wearing knee-high boots will definitely help. If high boots are too uncomfortable to you, you can also go for leg warmers to protect your legs from the cold.

Winter Hats are a great accessory in winter. They are not only stylish, but also give you additional warmth and protection from the coldness and melting snow falling on your hair and head.

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?

New Hallyu Trend – Face Masks and Airport Fashion

In this modern world where we always strive for perfection, there’s just flaws that we can’t change, thus we try cover them up.

But what these kpop stars do, who are already so close to perfect, doesn’t really succeed in covering up, instead they just shine more under those covers.

Now let’s check out some of these Hallyu stars and their airport fashion, which include covering half of their faces with cool face masks.

Here are some celebs who still look as stunning and beautiful, despite hiding behind the covers of their faces.

1. Mark Tuan (GOT7)

Mark Tuan (GOT7)

We just can’t deny that Mark is the face of GOT7. In his black leather jacket and beanie that pairs with his half covered face, his eyes most definitely still shines bright giving off his radiant beauty to the world.

No matter how hard he might try, there’s just no cover up that can hide his beauty.

2. Krystal Jung (f(x))

Krystal Jung (f(x))

Simplicity is truly a beauty for this Kpop star. With just a white shirt, jeans, jacket on one arm and a sling bag on the other, even though her face is half covered with a mask, I can still say she’s a head turner. Indeed hiding her beauty only shows it more.

3. Song Mino (Winner)

Song Mino (Winner)

A printed face mask can surely add a point to his airport fashion. Song Mino wearing a white shirt under his denim jacket and leather vest with a snap back on his head as his airport fashion. On top of those layers, his eye smile never loses its beauty.

4. CL (2ne1)

CL (2ne1)

Now this lady is definitely a fashion goddess, thus her airport fashion never disappoints. She’s wearing a black top under a while button up shirt, cut out pants, back shoes, a purse with her shades and face mask that goes with all of that. She might really be almost totally covered, but we can’t deny that her fashion sense is superior!

5. Park Chanyeol (EXO)

Park Chanyeol (EXO)

Now this one’s definitely a cutie. Chanyeol rocks his airport fashion with a bear mouth printed face mask. With his cupid-like curly hair, it is no doubt this bear mouth printed face mask would get all the attention in the airport. How can a bear look so cute?

6. Park Bom (2ne1)

Park Bom (2ne1)

Winter is a season where you should definitely protect yourself from the impending threats of colds and other diseases. Thus, Park Bom and her airport fashion is totally prepared for that. Wearing a beige trench coat, jeans, a pair of black pumps and a mask to shoo off unwanted sickness, Park Bom’s airport fashion is definitely something you want to try wearing as well.

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.

Well, even as they are concealed, they still look as bright and gorgeous!

Bling-blings are quite essential when we talk about hip hop fashion, they add a little luster to the monochrome colors the style usually sports.

How to Wear Mini Skirts and Shorts Trendily

Korean Fashion 2012

Short skirts and shorts are considered basic staple pieces in a girl’s wardrobe. They are usually worn as a casual wear over the weekends, often with t-shirts or tank tops. The thing is, short skirts and shorts are also some of the most versatile clothing that you can mix and match easily your other outfits. You can be really creative and create lots of different looks with them.

There is a misconception that only slim girls can pull off short skirts and shorts. By following some of these guidelines and tips, you too can achieve a trendy look regardless of your size.

1.  Choose the right type of skirt and shorts

• Tight mini skirts and shorts are more suitable for younger teens, or slim and long-legged women.

• To achieve a more mature or classy look, minis that don’t cling will be perfect for you like those skirts with kilts, wraps and pleats.

• High-waist shorts and skirts can make your legs look longer.

• Another option is by wearing leggings with your shorts and skirts. Dark colored leggings such as black, chocolate brown, plums and steel grays are more mature looking, while lighter colors are more suited for teenagers. Leggings will emphasize the legs. Patterned stockings, fishnets, and half- leggings are also another options to show your versatility and creativity.

2. Choose the right shoes.

• To achieve a more girlish look, you can wear wedges or ballet flats to pair with your shorts or skirts. If you are taller, you can also wear flats with ankle straps to emphasize your long legs (not advisable for those who are shorter).

• Heels look best for a night out.

• Pairing boots with skirts is also a great idea for a stylish look. Its best to avoid wearing knee-high black boots with shorts because they are difficult to pull off and can give other people a ‘cheap’ feel. Choosing a pair of boots in a tone that’s similar to your skin color will help to elongate your legs.

• Wedges are great with mini skirts or shorts as it makes you look taller

3.  Choose the right top

• With tight mini skirts, you can wear long or voluminous tops to go with them. It will help to generate a sexy chic vibe.

• You can tuck in your top into your shorts or short skirts to emphasize your waistline. Cinching your waist with a belt will have a better effect.

• When matching plain sleeveless top with a short skirt or shorts, you can layer it with a cardigan and wear a colorful bead necklace to create a more youthful, fun and trendy look.

Additional Tips:

• Don’t just follow the trend. Choose a short skirt or shorts that are not just appropriate for your body type, but also reflects your style and personality at the same time. There are all kinds of styles, from the classic, the trendy, the demure to the sporty, so pick a style that is best suited for you.

• Wear the right underwear under your short skirts or shorts. If they are a little tighter, its best to wear a seamless panty or a G-string to avoid VPL (Visible Panty Line). VPL is an ugly sight and every woman should make an effort to avoid them.

•  We all know that not all women are blessed with long, skinny legs, but that doesn’t need to stop you from wearing shorts and skirts. You just have to identify what are the best ways to wear them. If worn correctly, it will help create a height illusion on a girl, even though she might not be tall.

Michelle Harper’s Fashion

We are absolutely enthralled by one of New York’s top style mavens. Michelle Harper is one that reminds me of Lady Gaga, a confident lady who is not afraid to experiment with style or fashion and is often seen wearing talking pieces, something in the likes of the large blonde ribbon hair-like bow that Lady Gaga wore, or the lace eye mask that she donned. At times, I will also relate her to Dita Von Teese, probably due to her slight vintage feel and that bright or dark red lipstick that she’s often seen wearing.

However, Michelle Harper’s fashion is unique. Her’s is a more elegant avant garde style. Lady Gaga is geared towards controversial style with meat dresses, granny pants and all. Dita Von Teese is well-known for her extreme vintage looks. Neither is Michelle from the entertainment industry. According to Wikifashion, Michelle Violy Harper owns a multi-million dollar cosmetics company, and she sits on the board of Couture Council in the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York.

With such impressive background, it is no wonder that she can afford to indulge in her passion for fashion to create such dramatically glam looks that most ordinary women will be happy to ogle at, but not brave enough to attempt or can’t afford to try. Still, if her enchanting style can spark off some tiny inspiration, aspirations or changes in our personal style, it’ll be worth our attention.

If you want to dress your man, you’re sure to find different sources of inspiration from everywhere. So read on for potential dress codes. Who knows, you might like a thing or two.

Stripes give a nautical feel to any ensemble. This works even if you’re not on board a yacht, so pile up on nautical-inspired clothing. This includes khakis and topsiders.

Here’s a masculine take of the polka dots. This works best on dark colors such as black, brown, navy, and gray. Pair it with something heavy such as a leather jacket or a scarf.

You will never go wrong with plaid. Thank the nineties for that. Any color combination is fine. Roll up the sleeves for the grunge look.

Worn in pants can be spiced up using paint. The trick is to splatter it and make the effect unintentional. Pair it with a simple top such as sweaters and plain shirts to tone it down a little.

Here’s a testament to the ever-busy man. Newspapers are always an accessory. Read it, and you’ll have the best accessory know to man-intellect. Cool aviators and a wristwatch make the look casual but sophisticated.

Spice up a rather bland outfit by using a splash of color. Red socks catch the attention and draw the eyes away from the monochromatic jean combination of the jacket and shorts.

Here’s a quirky way of putting an ensemble together. A headband, sweater, striped socks, and boots. Color is key, and mix and match is as important.

Finally, here’s a pick for those with James Bond boyfriends. A tailor-made suit always makes a man look dapper. The right fit in all angles will make him look lean, tall, and worth a million bucks. Find a good tailor to make this work.

Men, like women, need to look good even for once in a while. It helps for all the ladies out there, doesn’t it?

Spring Street Trends in Tokyo

Tokyo is one of the most unconventional fashion hotspots in the globe today. One reason is because the people aren’t afraid of being unique, donning clothing that sets them apart from the masses as well as the fashion posse of their European and American counterparts. Take a look at how some Japanese ladies use clothing to emphasize their quirky character.

If you’re going for that eclectic look, accessories and a mix and match of patterns and colors will suit you well. There is no such thing as going overboard when it comes to patterns.

Animal print and fur is also a big thing in accessories. Faux fur adds to the charm of this item. Look at how these ladies used it to accent their outfits. Take note that spring in Tokyo is still such a cold season, and faux fur serves the dual purpose of being stylish as well as warm.

 

Simplistic and minimalist fashion is also one trend to look out for when you’re in the streets of Tokyo. They may be simple, but they are also eye-catching. Notice that this kind of dressing gives a very feminine feel to an outfit. So if you are feeling like going all girly, here are some inspirations for you.

Lastly, androgynous ensembles are also big hits in the streets of Tokyo. Pants and tops are loose, and this emphasizes the tiny and delicate frame of the wearer. Patterns are mixed and matched to give it a rugged, laid-back feel and hats are worn both to keep the hair off the face as well as to put an accent on the whole wardrobe.



How do you find these street styles and trends? Do they work for you or do you  simply want to try them out just for fun? Let us know in the comments section below.

A Korean Take on A Casual Date

Source

Spring and summer are THE seasons to wear light fabrics and pastel colors. There really is something about them that makes a look a whole lot sweeter and more feminine than your darker, heavier clothes. Korean fashion is something that has swept the greater part of East Asia. One reason is because it is utterly adorable, carefree, and sophisticated. I’d like to say that Korean fashion is perhaps the most adorable one I’ve seen around the planet. Ensembles like this, for example, are definitely great to wear either on a day doing errands or an afternoon of shopping.

What’s more, it’s also one that would be great for a casual afternoon or mid-morning date with a new man. First, the beret has a unique touch  to it. Who would’ve thought that navy blue paired with a light color such as the one in it would make such a distinctive look. The shirt, although a bit on the more casual side, is as feminine as the other items in the outfit. It is in a light shade of pink with an image of a delicate looking deer with a rose on top of its head.

A white skirt in lace and crochet detail adds a quirky touch to the clothing. It is an A-line or full length skirt, and it works best when worn with a belt. This is because a belt cinches the waist and gives the wearer an hourglass figure. If you don’t have this figure, a belt will most definitely give you a tiny waist. A good choice of belt would be a wide one since it evens out the proportions of a loose top and a full skirt.

Accessorizing this outfit won’t be complete without pieces of jewelry. They add a certain charm to this girly look without going overboard. A simple necklace with a small pendant like the one in the picture is understated yet elegant. Rings also add a quirky detail to the whole ensemble.

This whole look is definitely one that would charm its way to a boy’s heart. With feminine details all over, it’s hard not to fall in love with it.

Here are eight other ways on how you can dress as sweetly as you can for casual dates.
