Fashion Trends For Boys

Guest post by Alvin Franklin

Their clothes may outgrow them in the blink of an eye, but boys in high-school and college are also keen to look good and fashionable. This year was an interesting year in fashion for young boys, and it has proven to be a completely independent element of the fashion industry.

Boy’s clothing should be comfortable for him to enjoy themselves in and look good and feel confident in. Almost everything counts from the colors to the designs right down to the stylishness of a complete outfit. Knowing the latest fashion trends will also make it easier to shop for new clothes if you have a little insight on what to buy.

Cool Colors for Boys

Warm colors make the most sense for boys throughout the seasons. Colors like coral were noted as one of the best colors for boys. Top brands agree! They were all over the trend this year and you can find coral colored tops and sweaters within your price range.

You can also go with black, brown, dark blue, gray and white for neutrality. Black and gray is also ideal for avoiding stained clothes and are generally easier to wash.

Cartoon Characters are Never Outdated

Characters like Mickey Mouse may be 91, but they are never out of style! Luckily there’s a variety of merchandise with their favorite characters. Superheroes are also never out of style. The trick for winter is to make sure you have enough variety in the form of long-sleeved options and picking out some warm items featuring their favorite characters.

However, to look good and for your wardrobe to improve, you may need some income, which means you might need to look for some part-time job.

If you can’t juggle school work and a part-time job, you can use the services of EduBirdie. The online professional writers will help you with everything that you need, from thesis to dissertation and college essays to homework.

Fresh Choices for Winter

In the cold season, warm jackets are great for boys. However, they might be a little bulky for some activities in college. The trick is to find a lightweight jacket that is also warm and comfortable and well insulated. These comfy jackets can range from metallic tones to a simply black hoodie with a hood.

The same goes with shoes; stylish winter boots offer both the options of style and comfort without compromising the latest fashion trends. Another option for keeping warm and trendy is by wearing a grandpa jersey; the grandpa jersey is back in style and offers extra comfort and warmth.

Cute in Denims, Tracksuits & Dungarees

From straight cut slacks to a set of dungarees – all you need is a cool t-shirt to complete an outfit. Straight cut slacks come in various cool colors and also offer great comfort and the waist is usually adjustable according to the child’s size.

Tracksuits are also a great option, and offer simplicity and comfort and takes a lot of time off getting ready to go somewhere. Dungarees are also one way to ensure your little boy looks stylish and the multiple pockets offer lots of room for boys who like collecting stuff.

Dressing for Special Occasions

Special occasion coming up, and confused about what to get for yourself? You can never go wrong with a classic business suit, and for everyday use, you can swap the shirt for a turtleneck or a simple t-shirt and a jumper in winter. You can also look for lighter suits that don’t necessarily constrict movements and provide ample comfort.

Cute Prints and Camouflage Designs

Prints and military-style fashion will never go out of date in the fashion world of boys; they are forever relevant. Prints vary in shapes, lines, and motifs and most of them accommodate different personalities. Many fashion lines have drawn inspiration from marine themes and created clothes featuring sea creatures.

Boys also generally love camouflage designs that mimic military uniform and these items include khaki suits, jackets, pants, decorative patch pockets, cool badges, and shiny buttons, among other elements. The military-style clothes are also fashionable in conjunction with bright colors like pink, blue, green and yellow.

Summertime Fun & Functionality

In summer, boys would typically be seen wearing t-shirts, light linen trousers, and shorts. However, you can experiment with all sorts of styles.

Cargo Shorts
For instance, there are a variety of t-shirts available to play with in terms of design, color, and print. In addition, cargo shorts can never go out of style for a trip to the mall or a trip to the beach! Cargo shorts offer multiple pockets that are nice and spacey as well.

Conclusion

Shopping for clothes should not be a hassle, and should be as fun as the fun you will have once you get to have in your new and fashionable clothes.

At the top of the agenda, of course, is functionality and comfort so that you can have all the fun in the world while enjoying the confidence of looking good. Finding the right look for yourself is a lot easier once you know how to put together a cool outfit.

Knotty ClutchBags Are The Future Of Bag Design, Interview With Saif Taj

Knotty ClutchBags Are The Future Of Bag Design, Interview With Saif Taj

Saif Taj – co-founder at Knotty and Tazeen Saif – Designer at Knotty

Saif Taj noticed a gap in the market – the need for a small, versatile, all-in-one bag to suit both men and women. From this realization, he co-founded Knotty, a bespoke bag company specializing in quirky, practical designs.

We got the chance to speak with Saif to find out more about his unique designs and how they represent the future of fashion.

Knotty ClutchBags. Dress to Impress!

Bags are dotted and T’s are crossed. Knotty ClutchBags

1 — What is the inspiration behind creating this project?

Clutches and folios are on the rise even with men as people want to carry light and have their everyday business utility items available on the go. In addition to this, people prefer having a single bag to meet all their needs – whether they’re going to a business meeting or having a casual day out. I realized that no multi-purpose bag like this was on the market, and decided to create one. So yes – it’s a clutch, a folio and a laptop bag all in one! This concept really sets us apart.

2  — Why does this need to exist in the world?

We live in an age where convenience is essential. A bag like ours, which has an easy-grab pen pocket and dual slots on the rear for storing and swapping business cards, can provide great value to consumers. I know this because the concept for these features struck me when I was out traveling – I would reach for my pen and business cards and struggle to find them. And people buy laptop bags based on their tastes, and colours and designs are generally pretty similar across brands. So we decided to make our designs really unique.


3  — Why is this better than other solutions on the market?

Because it’s forward-thinking. The world we live in is fast turning from micro to nano-sized. We want to shake up standard designs whilst eliminating excessive weight and size, without compromising on quality, design, and features. Our Knotty ClutchBag does this.

After working on countless designs over the past few years, my wife and I came up with 20 designs that suit the needs of every modern man and woman. Our multi-purpose bag is durable and fashionable, made with 100% premium, genuine cow leather. It features a minimalist design and maximum utility, with 14 Knice Features on a simple stitched piece of leather. We were inspired by wanting to make something that works with what people are wearing right now.

4  — ClutchBags haven’t existed until now – it’s being introduced for the first time.

Yes! We are so proud to have made such a revolutionary bag design. It also fits both laptops and tablets of up to 13.3. inches – it’s incredibly light and slim.

Summary

knotty clutchbag
ClutchBags are an incredible new bag design offering consumers both style and versatility. They are the perfect statement piece to go with any outfit or outing – whether it’s date night or you’re simply taking it to work.

Choosing the right clothes is not always easy though which makes finding the best fashion tips wise. While much attention is given to what happens above the waist in men’s fashion, it is also essential to get it right below the waist as well. If you are looking for some pointers here, the below should give you a great headstart.

Buy a pair of cool boots

If you want to wow people with your look then the shoes you walk around in are key. Forget standard trainers or formal brogues though – a great fashion trend right now is rocking some awesome men’s boots. Boots are not only comfortable to wear and stylish to look at but they are very versatile. They can be equally at home in the office or on a night out with friends!

Try out a leather belt with buckle

Although wearing a belt may seem a small thing, the effect it has on how good you look is much bigger. It is also pretty handy if your trousers or jeans are a little too big! Belts give you chance to express your individual style and also help to give your whole outfit a real lift. Leather is the best sort to go for here as it not only looks better but will last longer. Choosing a belt with a distinctive metal buckle will also help to make you look more interesting and stand out from the crowd.

Why not go smart-casual with trendy jeans?

If you are looking to change your look up a bit, why not invest in some smart jeans to dazzle people with? The really great thing about this tip is that they will come in useful for a whole range of situations. For the office, you can team them with a tucked-in shirt for that professional vibe while you can go more informal on a night out by pairing them with a statement t-shirt. Key to making this work is finding the cut of jean that works best for you and also choosing the colour carefully.

Don’t overlook your socks

As with a belt, some men can totally underestimate how big an impact the socks they wear have. The major two things to remember here are to wear the right colour with the right outfit while also remembering there are many types of sock to try out. Even changing your normal plain black for a patterned grey will add some instant style to your appearance. In terms of wearing the right sock for the right outfit, the main thing to avoid is wearing white sport socks with formal trousers/shoes. These just do not look right!

Below the waist can make or break your look

The important thing to take from all this is how key the clothes you wear below the waist are to your image. Making the right choices here can help you get noticed for all the right reasons. If you need a few pieces of fashion advice in this area, the above should help.

Haofa Tourbillon, Can Luxury Be For Everyone?

Published

on

Haofa Tourbillon
Watches aren’t just for the sake of timekeeping. Sometimes, you also want them to look good, classy, elegant and of course, expensive. That’s why there’s this thing called “style,” right? Well, that’s the same principle when it comes to watches. And what is the best statement to get with your wrist? Right wearing a tourbillon watch. But what are these tourbillon watches? And more important what makes them cost more than a house.

Haofa Tourbillon Breaks the Chain of (Crazy) Expensive Watches

There weren’t any affordable tourbillon watches — until now.

Haofa, a Hong Kong tourbillon watch company, made sure that it’s premium and quality luxury watches don’t need to cost a house! Why? Well, it’s because the company doesn’t have to pay for the expensive branding, marketing, and other unnecessary costs that jack up the price of all tourbillon (especially Swiss-made) watches.

You can buy Chinese tourbillon at an inch of the price compared to other brands and you still get the elegance, class, precision, and quality you’ve always clamored for. That’s what makes today’s Haofa tourbillons really good.

Take for example the Montblanc 4810 ExoTourbillon Slim that’s priced at a jaw-dropping $34,500. That, however, pales in comparison to the Greubel-Forsey Quadruple Tourbillon that retails for a gargantuan price of $815,000! Then compare that with Haofa Tourbillon, a Chinese tourbillon watch that speaks of premium quality and elegance at just a minuscule $1,000! This makes it one of the best affordable tourbillon watches out there, if not the best.

Knowing More About Haofa Tourbillon Watches

After great success in the Asian market, the CEO of Haofa decided to expand to the global market.

In an interview, the Haofa CEO said, “We have been making watches since 1996 with great pride and dignity, and I believe the times in China are changing. The world will not anymore only know us for cheap products but for the quality, we can create for just a fraction of our competitors’ prices.”

Let’s face it. Getting a tourbillon watch is downright expensive. That’s if you go with the traditional brands made from Switzerland and other European countries.

But with globalization in our midst, and the fact that tourbillons don’t anymore need to be expensive, you can now get one for as much as half the price compared to the common tourbillon watches you know of.

That’s where Haofa tourbillon watches kick in.

Although the movements are not made from the oh-so-expensive country watchmaking country called Switzerland, you still don’t have to worry about its quality because these are made by an expert and professional watch company that has been making 80% of these swiss watches for the last 50 years.

Taking the “Made in Switzerland” branding off, but not sacrificing quality is also what makes this high-end Chinese tourbillon watch brand affordable.

How does that look?


Hoafa – G1007BE1 at €1.499,00 EUR https://www.houjon.com/collections/haofa-tourbillons-since-1996/products/hoafa-roman-low-heart-g1007be1

Haofa Skeleton Silver Bezel – 1035 €1.000,00 EUR https://www.houjon.com/collections/haofa-tourbillons-since-1996/products/skeleton-silver-1035 

Haofa Tourbillon – 1036 – €1.299,00 EUR https://www.houjon.com/collections/haofa-tourbillons-since-1996/products/tourbillon-cute-1036

Final Verdict on Haofa Tourbillon Watches

With Haofa tourbillon watches opening up to the worldwide market there is a change for everyone to own a luxurious watch like this. If you are one of the guys who are craving for a tourbillon watch but knows that they can’t afford to get one, then the arriving of the Haofa watch brand could be the best thing that happened to you!

They’re less than $2,000. Well, that might still be a big amount to most, but nonetheless, if you would buy a swiss one it would cost the same as a penthouse in Hong Kong.

Therefore, I suggest you take a look at Haofa tourbillons made in China, their watches speak of unrivaled durability and quality as well as elegant class. Besides that, they are probably made with the same parts as their swiss competitors.

Just like the Japanese watch brands were ridiculed when they first came outside Tokyo, the Haofa brand is having the same starting troubles, people are afraid to leave their prejudices behind, but do you really want to pay that price for your ego? Of course, you will get more quality for an 800,000.- dollar watch as you will get for a $1000,- dollar watch with the same movement and looks. But will it be 800 times better?

We suggest you take a look at the brand while it’s still affordable.

We all want to look our best but we might not always be sure of where to go to get the best advice. There are millions of people out there who have tips for us on how to dress and how to look at our sharpest. However, sometimes it can be daunting to know just who to trust as specifically because there are so many different opinions out there. It can also take a long time to sift through all the options before finding your way to one that matches your own personal style. The wide range of choice means that you are never short of suggestions. This is where social media proves to be a useful tool as it helps you sort through the numerous options and zero in on what it is suits you best. Not only can social media help you find fashion that is to your liking but it also allows the opportunity to share your own style with the wider world. Doing this can lead to you being a hit online and there is even more chance of this happening if you decide to invest in social media features for your profile. Visit here to get an idea of the tools which can make this happen. We will explain a bit more about why people do this but first, we are going to extoll the virtues of social media when it comes to men’s fashion.

What is waiting to be found on social media?

When it comes to offering content for men interested in looking their best, there is a whole range of social media users who are ready to offer their opinions on the matter. To start, let’s take a look at Instagram. Instagram is one of the most popular social networks around and it currently has more than a billion regular users. The main reason for its popularity is the focus it places on the visual aspect of social media, letting the pictures do the majority of the talking in every post. In terms of fashion, this is crucial. It doesn’t matter how well someone can describe an outfit or how interesting their sketches of potential looks maybe, it all comes down to how it looks on someone’s body. This makes Instagram the perfect social network for this topic as it is all about sharing images with the world. In order for you to get the best idea of how an outfit looks, seeing someone else wear it is sure to help.

What should you look for?

As we touched on before, a difficult task when it comes to searching for different looks is that of sorting through the various options available. This can take a lot of time by searching through different sections of websites or moving between different webpages. Social media has one key feature which helps users overcome these troubles. This is the hashtag. Hashtags are words which can be added to posts in order to categorize them. In turn, this makes it easier to find them as instead of trying to search for pages that might interest you, simply type in a hashtag that best defines what you are looking for. You will then be presented with a series of results that suit your interest. In the case of fashion, there are plenty to be found. #mensfashion has nearly fifty million posts on Instagram while similar hashtags like #menswear and #mensclothing provide more than thirty million and almost three million posts, respectively. In addition to searching for hashtags, there are also dozens of popular accounts on social media which can help you look as sharp as you want to.

Having a go at it yourself

If you fancy yourself as something of a style guru then you can always use your social network profile to upload content related to fashion and share it with the wider online community. This is a way of making a name for yourself and it can open many doors. The successes of social media influencers have been widely covered and is something which many aspire to. All it takes is determination and knowing how to draw attention your way. In addition to helping you search for content, hashtags can also be used to attract people to your profile. Using locations is another way to do this. However, there is only one way to guarantee that you will get people interacting with your profile and that is by paying for it.

Paying for social media features

The purchase of social media features is something that has emerged from the need for social media users to get their hands on more interaction. More interaction leads to greater visibility and this, in turn, leads to a better chance of getting noticed. Therefore, features such as views, likes, comments, and followers become an important part of social networks, especially for those who want to build a popular profile. Paying for these features is the only way to guarantee that you will get them and that is why websites, like the one we mentioned above, are happy to supply you with these features sourced from real social media users at a price. Consider it an investment in your future success.
