The Guy’s Wardrobe Must Haves

September 26, 2011
by Jean Elejorde

Women may have more fashion options but men have no shortage options whenever they decide on their fashions. If women have the “wardrobe’s must haves”, the men are also into with it. Men’s fashion trends are momentary, so when buying clothes, one must focus on classic looks that are always in style and can be mix and match with other clothing items. There are many clothing items that every man should own that they can be worn in their work and in other social settings.
Sampson Quain, an eHow Contributor, identified some of the clothing items that will never be out of style in her article “What Clothes Should Every Guy in His Closet”? Here are some of the items a man must have in his wardrobe:

Casual Trousers
·       Casual trousers can be dressed up for work or dressed down to wear at clubs or other social environments. Most men instantly think of khakis, which is fine, but you may wish to diversify your wardrobe by also selecting all-wool trousers and cotton blends, such as chinos. In terms of color, stick to the basics: navy, black, gray or beige. Casual trousers should be loose and comfortable, unlike dressier trousers, which are often more form-fitting

Shoe
Although they're not technically items of clothing, good black shoes are invaluable for completing a man's look. Shoes that are poorly chosen, the wrong color or out of style can ruin what is otherwise a killer combination of shirt, suit and tie. A basic pair of black shoes should be rounded at the toes, not square, and should be made from genuine leather. If you can only afford one pair, buy shoes that have laces to give you the classiest look. Once your budget expands, you can purchase brown dress shoes that can be matched with jeans or casual trousers.
Suit
·         A good suit is a basic requirement in every man's closet. This applies even if you don't work in a job that demands formal wear. A nice suit expresses class and style, and can be worn for parties, weddings and important meetings. Your suit should be made from wool and should fit perfectly---meaning you should have it professionally tailored. Black, gray and navy blue suit jackets never go out of style, and can be paired with a variety of slacks. Double-breasted suits used to be in fashion, but single-breasted suits with two buttons are the classic style as of 2011.


White Dress Shirt and Tie
·         A classic white dress shirt is an essential part of every man's closet. It can be worn with a sweater and paired with dress pants, casual trousers, jeans and even the right kind of shorts. A good white dress shirt should be made from cotton, and should have a spread collar that allows you to wear a tie or still look refined without one. Like a good suit, a classic dress shirt should be properly sized and professionally tailored. 
Adding a good tie to your wardrobe gives you more options when putting together an ensemble. You can never go wrong with a solid black, dark gray or navy blue tie, but you can also choose more bold stripes and colors to add some zest to your wardrobe.
 Jeans

·         Although it may seem obvious for every man to own at least one pair of jeans, selecting the right pair is important. Light blue, white and stonewashed jeans are not in fashion as of 2011, and should only be worn at home, if at all. Dark blue and black are the best color choices, because they can be dressed up or dressed down depending on the situation. A man's jeans should not have holes as a fashion statement, but should be solid and well-made. Jeans should fit comfortably, but shouldn't be overly baggy. Skinny jeans, once designed exclusively for women, have become popular with teenage boys, but men should stick to classic jeans.

WEARING BRIGHT!

September 25, 2011
by Kathlyn Clemente


Bright colors are the one that makes an individual stand out or remain barely discernible. It is typically applied in fashion particularly to women, but how about to men?

Normally when we saw men wearing bright colored outfit we implied that they are a gay, having the reason that men do not regularly wear loud or bright colored attire because it is commonly symbolizes femininity. Back in time during the 80’s and 90’s, it was the moment that people are wearing bright colored clothes and it is very trending. It may give the impression of being childish and weird to someone but this modern time, it is now a hip way to show how modern youth, particularly men, can play on their ideas on being trendy. Most men believed that wearing it increases their masculinity because they are brave enough to prove themselves and not afraid of criticisms of people who are narrow minded. Real men can wear it without worrying on having a controversy of being a gay. It makes men stand out from the rest and it is a very successful way to be a magnet for the attention of women. Men look smashing and positive that makes women stare at them and at the same time it builds their strong personality. It is also an endearing look to men who brings interest to the dreary getup that women will definitely like.

This proves that fashion is not only for women, men can also have the sense of fashion. From bright to dull colors, as long as men or women can have the guts to turn it into a glamorous style then no one can prevent them to show what they look.

Do it like a dude

September 26, 2011
by Almera Arabis

Men, just like women, need to groom. Men need to look fresh and young, to be attractive and to be refreshing. Whether you are panky type, or you’re a more of a classic type, or a guy always on formal attire, or a gothic guy, or even a rockista, you need to always look on the go. The key actors are skin care, wardrobe, attitude and a perfect perfume as well. So is the hair. Grooming won’t be complete leaving the hair messy. Even if you are wearing the trendiest clothing in town if you don’t give enough effort on your hair, everything will be useless. Here are some simple routines that can help you maintain a manly look with your hair.

Steps

Shampoo: Choose a nice shampoo with a scent that would be appealing to other people’s taste, a shampoo with a ph balanced to keep your hair looking healthy and clean. Shampoo your hair twice in every bath to ensure that the scalp is thoroughly cleaned up.  This can make you look cool and feel great.

Tone: Gently massage your scalp with your fingertips or the pads of your fingers and not with your fingernails as if you are making a spider push-ups with your hands. Make it a routine whenever taking a bath even for just a few minutes because it helps the scalp release its natural oil since most of the oil is near the scalp and doing this is a good thing for the hair.

Condition: Condition your hair with a moisturizer. This can make your hair look smooth especially if you have dry hair.

Pat Dry:  don’t rub your hair when drying, do it in a squeezing motion or on a direction the hair grows to avoid tangles causing damage to hair cuticles which can lead to frizziness and split ends. And blow drying can also damage your hair and scalp but if it’s a necessity for you to use a blow dryer, apply a thermal styling spray to coat the hair and protect it from damage. 

Stay away from Chemical Treatments. Don’t torture your hair with repeatedly coloring because this can make your hair look dry, dull, and lifeless. If you have an extra penny, you can go to a professional stylist to give the proper treatment for your hair type. Don't be cheap when it comes to hair styling products. It’s better to spend for good quality gel, pomade, or any other hair products than to be problematic on how to revive your old hair after it has been damage because of using cheap and low quality products.;

Use the Right Tools when grooming. Use natural bristles brush, wide-toothed comb if you have curly hair and if combing wet hair to lessen tangles. Avoid using blow dryer and irons to keep your hair looking healthy. Have a healthy lifestyle, eat nutritious food, exercise, drink 8 glasses of water daily, get enough sleep, doing all of these will result  in a healthier scalp and hair.

Choose a nice style pal choose a comfortable hair style that can easily be maintain and suits your lifestyle. If you have a short hair, you probably won’t need any styling maintenance since it will style itself with the help of the natural oil from your scalp.

Minimize the use of tight hats dude. The use of tight hats can cause traction alopecia or falling hair. This can lead to a permanent damage to the scalp and might lead to baldness. So if the occasion or situation doesn’t require it, you better avoid the use of tight hats.

Keep it Trimmed. Get your hair trimmed every six weeks, by this, you can prevent the worsening of damaged hair such as split ends. Choose a hair cut that is age appropriate and that can make you look years younger in appearance. Consider the shape of your face in choosing the right hair cut. Trust your trimmings and hair cut only to professionals.

Get Rid of Gray. Gray hair can add a few years to your appearance, so better get rid of them, by that you will be able to look age younger than your real age. Avoid home jobs because wrong choice of chemicals might give you a bad hair day for how many weeks or months so, better ask for the skills of professionals to avoid damage on hair.

Vintage Hip!

September 8, 2011
by Jean Elejorde
The old is out. In fashion, everything, old or new, is always on the cycle. New trends may come in different era. But as what the fashion experts says, it is just a cycle. There's really no difference between today's fashion and trends from long ago. Trends just evolve through time with a modern twist to it. Most trends are just making a comeback like wide-legged pants, high-waisted bottoms, leopard prints, and a lot more. People nowadays are more adventurous when it comes to experimenting and incorporating different patterns and styles together, which makes the old look modernized and totally in fashion right now.
In casual fashion todays, vintage is becoming a hit today. When we hear of the word vintage, we often relate it to the old or antique. But according to fashion dictionary, vintage fashion is clothing and accessories that are at least 25 years old. However, as vintage fashion is now sought-after the world over. An item described as vintage should speak of the era in which it was produced, of a certain quality, standard, fashion, design and aesthetic. Vintage is a term applicable to a wider variety of objects, including items that may or may not be antique.
Wearing vintage clothes shows everyone that you stand out from the crowd and know a thing or two about style and fashion. You will never have to worry that someone else might be wearing the exact outfit as you have. Youngsters seek for vintage clothes because it shows uniqueness and originality. Some vintage clothes can be mixed up with modern apparel. Vintage clothes are exciting, cheap, and allow you to create your own original look.
Wearing vintage clothes will not make you old. It is in the right choice and combination of clothes and accessories that will blend with you, personality, your comfort ability, and will make you younger and fashionable.
CHECK your mom or grandmother’s wardrobe. LOOK for that vintage. DO the MIX and MATCH.

HAIR IT UP!

September 8, 2011
by Kathlyn Clemente

Hair is the crowning glory of a woman. It is some kind of an asset that makes a woman standout among the rest. Hair needs a lot of attention and caring in order for it to become healthy and shiny. At the present time, many kind of hair styles are artistically created and developed, may it be from casual to glamorous looks. But most of the students have hairs that are fixed casually in the reason of comfortability during class. Also it is simple and easy to fix because it consume less time.

Here are some suggestions that can help you have a stylish yet casual hairstyle that can be worn when going to school courtesy of collegefashion.net and written by Zephyr, the College Fashion editor:



                    1. Slip on a Headband

For an elegant style smooth out your hair with a brush, then pull on a wide headband to cover up messier strands and look instantly polished. Try a shiny patent leather headband in an outfit-coordinating shade for a super-trendy look that’s very right-now.



2. Do a Messy Bun

This is the basic go-to staple for most college girls because it takes two seconds. Gather your hair on top of your head and wrap an elastic band around 2-3 times. Next, shape the bun with a few bobby pins that match your hair color, pull out a few ends to make it messier, and finish with a spray of hairspray.


3. Try Chopstick Hair


This style only looks difficult. It’s actually insanely easy to do. You don’t need actual chopsticks for this look – special hair sticks or even a pencil will work in a pinch.



4. Make a Chic Ponytail
If your hair is curly, use a little anti-frizz cream first. If you have straight locks, scrunch in curl cream to bring out some waves. Tease hair at the crown then pull into a low ponytail. Leave a ½ inch strand out and secure the ponytail with clear elastic. Wrap the extra strand around the elastic and secure with a bobby pin.


5. Do a Front Hair Poof
This popular hairstyle is a great way to hide bangs you might be growing out, and is also very simple to do. Just separate the section of
hair from temple to temple, tease it with a fine-toothed comb and secure with two bobby pins in an X. If your hair won’t stay in the bobby pins, tease the section more or use four pins.
Students can make their own hair style since the youth of today are very artistic enough in making themselves comfortable. Actually many students look fabulous even though they are wearing a simple hair style, because they say that it’s not only on how you look, but how you bring your style into the world.

FOUNDATION DAY!

September 8, 2011
by Rachel Ann Cardenas

As students, ita's not new that we apply make-up before going to school or just outside our home. Even guys have their beauty regimen before they step outside to face the world. Especially us girls, we must look fresh everyday not only to look good in front of our 'crush' but also to boost our self-esteem. 

Due to the climate setting we have here in the Philippines, we tend to look hassle even before we reach the gate of the university. Our make-up all smudge-up, our lipstick is  fading and those mascara on our eyes is already gone. It's all because of the hot weather. To prevent this to happen, a simple make-up will do. We don't want to over-do your make-up that will only make you look like we're going to a circus, right? And what makes a simple make-up without a foundation or what we call as face powder.

Now, foundation or face powder is the base of all make-up. Before anything else, we apply foundation first. Because this is the first base of applying make-up, it is important to use the foundation that will be best for our skin. Choosing the right type of foundation will prevent us from having skin allergies, irritation and even that awful acne. 

There are lots of cosmetic brands that offer good foundation or face powder for all skin-types. Some of these brands include VMV, Sisheido, Max Factor, Revlon, Cover Girl, Bobbi Brown and etc. These brands are hypoallergenic, so it means it's good for our skin. They have good ingredients that are not harmful for the skin, thus giving their customers satisfaction. It may be a little bit pricey for students, but it will be worth of every penny if you have sensitive skin.


But if you really don't have the cash to buy this costly cosmetic products, there are still brands that offers good quality at a low cost. Products such as Clean&Clear, Johnson's&Johnsons, Garnier, Careline, Pond's, etc. offers a wide selection of cosmetics that are not harmful for the skin. These brands have already established a name in the world of cosmetics, therefore having loyal customers. 


TIPS:
1. When applying face powder, cleanse your face first because it might cost skin problems.
2. Never share your foam or brush with others. It's called proper hygeine.
3. If you have oily skin, use oil control film or products that can reduce oiliness. Before   applying make-up always remember to remove the oil on your face.
4. Choose a face powder one-tone lighter than your skin or just the natural tone of your skin. 
5. If you have unwanted marks on your face, it's better to apply concealer first then your face powder.
