The common style mistakes men always make

You've got to own it. That's the No 1 rule in the corporate man's style book, if he was to have such a thing. Which, for some, mightn't be a bad idea because fashion blunders abound in the executive workplace. One of the biggest occurs when a man isn't sure what he likes and is swayed by trends that have little to do with his own style. You know the sort of thing – beards on the shorter man; huge checks on the thin man; tattoos. "Guys who wish to get on in the corporate world will have more success by following their own authentic... [Lire la suite]

'Fashion Outlaws' in focus for show at Massillon Museum

MASSILLON A contraption with steel hoops that resembles a birdcage, or a torture device, is one of the first artifacts you’ll see in “Fashion Outlaws” at the Massillon Museum. When you consider that this was worn under a woman’s voluminous skirt in the 1870s, the new exhibition’s theme — about confinement, mobility, women’s rights, rebellion — begins to coalesce. Next to this daunting crinoline is a corset-like garment that is tightly laced and tiny. “You would not have been able to raise your arms,” said Heather Hayden, the... [Lire la suite]

Inside The 2015 Victoria's Secret Fashion Show

Big hair, bejeweled bras and bionic abs–last night’s Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show was a spectacle of hyperbole to rival the inhuman verticality of the underwear brand’s push-up bras. Forty-seven models decked out in 75 different looks strutted the catwalk in front of a star-studded crowd that included Kris and Caitlyn Jenner, who came to support 20-year-old model daughter Kendall in her Victoria’s Secret debut. Like all good fashion shows, the event started 45 minutes late. Hairspray and air kisses hung thick in the large hall at... [Lire la suite]

7 Old Timey Accessories That Need To Make A Comeback

What is an ensemble without the details? Sometimes the subtlety of a look is its greatest strength, which is something we can observe in old timey accessories. Think about it: If your outfit is a pizza, the accessories are definitely the toppings. Just like pizza with anchovies is very different than pizza with mushrooms, that little black dress exudes distinct character when paired with sparkly shoes, long white gloves, a fringe purse, or all of the above. Even though women’s fashion has gone through so many transformations —corsets... [Lire la suite]
