Swimming shorts for Men

Finding swimming shorts for men isn’t a hard task to do, though it does take time and effort. Swimming shorts differ from swimming trunks because they’re longer and not as form-fitting. Most brick-and-mortar retailers carry these bottoms starting before the summer months come along. They can also be found at a variety of other places as well, both on and off the Internet.

Drive to brick-and-mortar retailers like JC Penney, Kohls, Macys, K-mart and Wal-Mart. Go to the men’s clothing section to find swimming shorts. Famous brands found at these places include Arizona Jean Co, Nike, Speedo and Polo Ralph Lauren.

Shop at thrift stores, consignment shops, yard sales and garage sales for men’s swimming shorts. Clothing at these places are usually used, but you can sometimes find new items cheaply. Look for lined shorts if you’re planning on lounging around the pool. Lined shorts provide better coverage and hold their shape better. Swimming shorts with pockets are handy to wear if you need storage for small items.

Summer clothing

As the hot summer sun intensifies, it’s time to shed the old heavy layers of winter and spring in favor of comfort and a cool, breezy look. A billowing loose tunic over a lightweight cotton skirt, shorts, capris, or slacks is more comfortable than layers with heavy or densely woven fabrics. Lighter layers mixed and matched with bold colors give you a warm summer glow.



Some of today’s synthetics are designed to wick moisture from the body, which will keep you more comfortable on the hottest days. Cotton, cotton blends, silk and other natural fabrics are best for summer.


Tight Fitting clothes

Tight-fitting clothes that cling to the body and don’t allow your skin to breath can make you miserable in intense summer heat. A looser fit allows air to circulate between the fabric and your body.

Color, Necklines and Sleeves

V neck ClothesA scoop neck or V-neck with bold, colorful, lightweight jewelry for accent tend to  draw the eye up. Sleeveless and short sleeves are the best options for summer. Lightweight cotton tees or tanks tops that are form-fitted but not tight allow the skin to breathe yet show off your feminine curves and also Lighter colors reflect light and heat, whereas primary and darker colors are great for accents.


Strappy sandals

Strappy sandals with fabric or leather soles are great to show off a pedicure. Darker socks breed bacteria, so white cotton socks are ideal for working out because they wick moisture and prevent heat-related rashes. A change of shoes can give the feet a much-needed break when the temperature drops or rises.

If you want to make it easy for you to get like this items you can visit for you to enjoy your summer with a fashionable looks.

Accessories reflects you.

Accessories can compliment and accentuate your wardrobe, however, there is a much deeper meaning. They is a positive reflection and expression of your personality. Everyone has a different combination of personality traits that make us unique and special. Our emotions tend to manifest one personality trait over the other at varying times during an occasion, the course of a day, and throughout our lifetime. Accessories depict the same personality traits we do, however, they are more consistent. They can emphasize the finer qualities or detract the less desirable in our appearance even when our emotions have the best of us.

Determine what traits that you want to be prominent in your appearance. For an example, confident, artsy, or energetic.

Ralph Lauren

Choose colors that illustrates that trait. For an example, confident is black. Most people imagine a confident business or sales person in a black suit.

Polo Ralph Lauren

Choose shapes that demonstrate the trait. Uniquely shaped buttons, ribbons, and buckles portray a style that positively. Find a patterns based on repetition and space. Many patterns closely spaced represent intensity and energy, as where, less patterns with more space represent a calm and peaceful trait.

Clutch Bag

Of course, finally, you want each of your accessories to complement one another. Matching the same color or keeping accessories in the same family is one way. Coordinating patterns or metals throughout your selection is another way.

Your clothes match with a plaid

Plaids include a variety of colors to choose from when pairing them for fashion or interior decor. Learn how to look at plaid with an artistic eye and match the best possible fabrics and colors to your tartan fabric.

Ralph Lauren designer clothes have this kind of collection for the Fashion shows. From the dark colors to the ligthest one. From simple cuts to a fabulous design. Look at the picture below you will see how RL match with a plaid.

Ralph LaurenMatch to the background color of your plaid. Look at the colors and pick the most prominent, which serves as the background for the lines and boxes of your tartan design.

Make a big impact by selecting a feature color from your tartan to match. Looking at the tartan design, choose a color that fits your personal style and that stands out. Matching to a highlight color from your plaid will help your plaid stand out and gives it a fashionable edge.

Go for contrast, with a basic match. White, black and brown match with almost anything yet provide enough contrast to make an impact. Other contrast matching options include grays and colors in the family of the background or feature colors in your plaid.

Be fabulous anytime

Every woman needs a great outfit for any occasion that may come up. The problem is that knowing what the right look for the occasion is can be a bit difficult sometimes. Thankfully the mood of any occasion or event can be fairly easily to discern. I have put together a list of occasions, sorted some what by mood, which will help any women find a great outfit within her closet for most any occasion.

If you are going out for lunch with friends, or for a stroll through the park, a great casual look is in order. For this type of look, I grab my favorite pair of  jeans and a comfortable top in a neutral color such as tan or brown. Pair these pieces with a printed scarf, a pair of comfortable sandals and a great pair of way fare sunglasses. If you are planning on being out a while, add a large tote bag to the look.

The office look is the one that has always given me the most trouble personally, but I have spent a lot of time researching what works and I have finally found an ensemble that works very well with the office atmosphere. In the office suits are an absolute must, weather it be pants or a skirted suit, they are necessary. I find pairing any suit with a large slouched hand bag is a good idea. Add a pair of fancy drop earrings and a pair of sophisticated pumps and you are all set.

My favorite outfit for going out on the town is a cute little dress with a statement belt added to it. For some just a cute dress is the best option, you’ll have to go with your personal preference on this one. Either way you go, add strapped heeled sandals to the dress and grab a clutch on your way out. This outfit is fun and easy to wear no matter what comes up, be it dinner or dancing. Have fun!

Every so often in our lives we have those evenings that are very important and require a more formal look. (The kind of night that stresses a woman right out.) For these nights I go with a great gown, appropriate for my body type of course, in a bright color. I try to keep it very simple in dress and accessories because I end up doing my hair and make up as is called for on a night like this. I include a pair of platform open toed heels and a matching bracelet collar necklace set. If you need a bag of some kind go with a small clutch, though I suggest none at all.

Perfect Accessories

Cocktail Party

So, you’ve got on a black and white dress and white shoes…do you wear earrings? A necklace? Bracelets? This list will help you decide great ways to accessorize your outfits. Think about what you’re wearing. If it’s busy already, keep accessories limited and simple. If it’s plain, you’ve got more freedom to accessorize, but don’t go overboard!
Keep this in mind that  less is more. A ring and matching bracelet make a nice set. A matching bracelet and necklace make a great combination. But two rings, a bracelet on each arm and three necklaces? Not so much.

Ralph Lauren Ring and Bracelet

Choose one accessory as a focal point. For example, you can wear big, glamorous earrings, but then if you wear a necklace, it needs to be subtle. Similarly, you can choose a shiny necklace, but then your earrings should be small and should not compete for attention.

Earrings and Necklaces

Necklaces and earrings

Stick to one style of jewelry. If you want to accessorize with yellow gold, stick with that. The same goes for white gold. Mixing and matching can get messy.

If you’re carrying a purse, make sure it looks good with your outfit. A metallic silver purse may be a gorgeous accessory for a black dress, but with a metallic dress, you may start looking like an over-accessorized mess.

Silver purseDon’t be afraid to take fashion risks. A beaded necklace can be a fantastic accessory with a simple black top and jeans. Shiny earrings can spice up a simple dress. If you like it, and it looks good with your outfit, go for it!

Look at yourself in the mirror before going out. Do your accessories create a cohesive look, or do they look mismatched? If they look mismatched, take them off and try again.

Wear your summer jewelry

Summer is the perfect time to take a break from metal and experiment with natural materials. Wood is always a popular summer jewelry material. Pile on a few wooden bangles to show off a lightly tanned arm or wear a simple wooden pendant on leather cord for an earthy, natural look. A popular new jewelry material for warm weather is bamboo. Beads made of bamboo are hollow and very light to the touch making them a perfect choice for warmer temperatures. The beauty of bamboo jewelry is that each piece is a work of art with its own unique ring structure and design. Plus, bamboo is considered to be a symbol of strength and of good luck. It’s also an eco-friendly jewelry material you can feel good about wearing. Don’t worry if the wood and bamboo pieces you wear are a little rough around the edges, it only adds to their charm.  Here’s some of the Ralph Lauren Collection that use in their fashion shows.

Summer necklaces

Shell pendants and bracelets feel good to the touch and look stunning against gently sun kissed skin. Choose from paua shell, abalone shell, conch shell, hammer shell, or puka shell, among other shell types. You can even collect your own small shells on the beach along with some sea glass that’s been gently molded by the waves and create your own unique summer necklace or bracelet. Shells can be combined with other natural materials such as stones and rough wooden beads and strung onto hemp
or leather for truly one-of-a-kind pieces of jewelry.

There’s something about wearing natural stone jewelry that feels right for summer.All natural stones such as turquoise and coral are always a popular choice and look stunning paired with cool, cotton tops and summer shorts. Don’t forget that natural stones such as turquoise and coral can be combined with other materials such as wood and ceramic for an eclectic look. Can’t find what you’re looking for? Head down to your local bead store and make your own.

Bag for Spring Fashion

Spring fashion requires choosing the right bag to complete your outfit. Bags come in a variety of colors, sizes and purposes, making it possible to pick just the right one. Several different bags may be needed to meet the demands of travel,parties, shopping and other activities.

Pick up a clutch for those special evenings at the opera or other elegant, springtime social events. A clutch is small and conveniently holds the essentials, such as keys and a lipstick for touch-ups after dinner.

Duffel Bag

Travel in style during spring with a duffel bag in a light color. A duffel bag is made of thick fabric and is often used as luggage. Let a tote be the bag of choice for carrying items that don’t fit in a purse. A tote can comfortably be used as a shopping bag again and again. Its two straps make for easy handling.

Choose a convertible handbag for the most options in wear. A convertible design can be worn on the shoulder, on your arm or as a clutch.

Always remember try on a bag just as you would a dress. If the bag is too bulky or unbalanced for your body, keep looking. The bag should be easy to grasp or feel comfortable if you use a shoulder strap.

Match your outfit to your earrings.

The right pair of earrings can complete your outfit. However, the huge selection of accessories available often makes it confuses to find exactly what works best for you. Use the information below to learn how to buy earrings to match an outfit

I gathered some pictures from Ralph Lauren collections. Here’s some timeless earrings perfectly match to your outfit.

Long earrings

Stay within your budget. It’s awfully tempting to splurge on an awesome pair of earrings. But think carefully before you make your purchase. It’s best to set a price limit before you begin shopping and stick to it no matter what.

small earrings

Select earrings that match your outfit instead of buying an outfit that matches some earrings you already own or want to buy. Think about the types of situations for which you’ll wear the outfit and earrings in question. A no-nonsense business suit is best complemented by a classic pair of simple earrings. A fun, flirty outfit can support a flashier, more ornate pair of earrings.

Consider the other accessories you plan to wear with the outfit, too. It’s easy to go overboard with accessories. If you’re also wearing a necklace and rings, choose small, simple earrings. If you’d like to wear large, dangly earrings you may need to remove some other accessories first. Purchase earrings that match or complement that color of your clothing. Neutral colors and metals are safe and usually go well with almost any color.

Aim to buy earrings that complete your look instead of earrings that become the focus of your look. The first thing others notice shouldn’t be your earrings; they should notice how great you look overall.

Be Fashionable at the beach

At the beach

Who said that you don’t have to worry about what you wear at the beach? Living in Florida, where beaches like South Beach and Key West, beaches are the place to show off, and not just those abs you’ve been working all year on… right?. It’s the place to be seen and what’s a better place to be seen as a fashion diva!

The first thing people notice when you thread on that hot sand. The beach is a fun place so I generaly always say look for glasses that are fun but not stupid or tacky. I love white framed glasses at the beach (they make your tan stand out.) Paris Hilton and David Beckham are always sported wearing them on the shore and you should too. It will make people sweat by you with the hot style you give off!

Paris Hilton and David Beckham

Believe it or not, beach clothes are something you need to be in a habit of if you go to the shore, just in your bikini. Sun worshippers in Brazil and the Medditerrean countries always wear beach clothes before they head out to hit the waves. You could wear a seran over your hips or a white throw on. Or even a large solid colored t-shirt belted at the waist. Beach clothes must be light and made out of a breathable material. If you still don’t like the idea of it, think of it this way – would you want your Christmas gift not be be wrapped when you see it on Christmas day? Treat your body like one, a gift and mystery for
all to see.
