MEN’S FASHION ACCESSORIES

MAKE ACCESSORIES A TREND IN 2023

The magical ability of men’s fashion accessories to enhance class and glamor can never be overemphasized. It is rather distasteful when people ignore these dress accessories, considered to be the essential tools for taking your style from the subpar to the apex of elegance.

Speaking of men’s fashion accessories, there are things you must always consider when making a choice. Some of them include; choosing a perfect color to blend with the cloth in question, opting for the right brand for better satisfaction, getting a good product design that fits well; and above all, you need to know how best to combine everything!

With the right information, you will have better luck elevating your style, which is why we have chosen to offer some insights on making better fashion statements with your fashion accessories. Below, you will find some ideas to help improve your game.

UNDERSTAND THE OCCASION

The first step is your understanding of the atmosphere surrounding the event in play. With so many outfits available, one might think that they could dress in any way they liked for all the events. For example, it’s inappropriate to dress in jeans and a t-shirt to an interview knowing that it’s an office environment and demands formal attire. Every occasion has it’s own peculiar demands, and you have to dress correctly to fit.

EVERY PIECE HAS ITS OWN DEMANDS

One way to create magic is by knowing the type of clothing you have set aside and pairing it with the perfect accessory. A semi-casual dress requires the combination of a pair of sneakers, a jacket, application of body scents, a wristwatch, a neck piece, any haircut of your choice, and, if it works for you, a baseball hat. On the other hand, if it is not casual, you have to pair it with less casual accessories.

HOW TO CHOOSE THE RIGHT ACCESSORIES

Often times, you might be faced with an avalanche of options but lack an understanding of how to pick the right piece for your ensemble. You’re expected to make a perfect choice for every piece you choose, and it can be a puzzling thing to do. For events like party hangouts, family gatherings, etc., the style should be casual dressing. And in the light of men’s fashion accessories, the nature and pattern of your clothing will determine the specific variant of your shoes, wristwatch, neck piece, body fragrance, waist belt, fashion glasses, and the colors involved.

An outfit like a blue denim, white T-shirt, and a black or blue denim jacket is perceived to be simple and can be specifically matched with either a pair of brown Danner Bull Run Moc Toe shoes, black Bitflex boots, or any other similar alternative. The aim is to achieve a rugged and refined look while you maintain class and elegance.

While on that, you should also note that picking a random necklace might cause you to deviate from the intended effect. So, it is necessary to look out for beaded necklaces in particular, as they offer a more casual look than what you would get from a silver or gold chain. This necklace could either be in mixed colors or just a plain color, but since the choice of cloth is plain, pairing with a colorful necklace would be a great idea.

Another important item in a man’s fashion accessories is a wrist watch. Wristwatches have a way of making a good impact on your overall appearance. And with so many types and designs of wristwatches in the market space, it can be confusing to categorically try to decipher which one is for the event. Watches come in either analog or digital form. A digital-faced wristwatch uses a screen to display time in numbers, while an analog-faced one appears in the minute hand, hourly hand, and often the seconds hand. We may find them in different designs like leather, rubber, chains, etc. More likely, digital watches come in rubber designs, which are suitable for casual or sports events, while the analog face types mostly appear in chains or leather, which are suitable for business and formal wear.

Fashion glasses offer a great way to improve your appearance. It may not be their loss; slipping on a nice pair of glasses can boost your appearance. It may not be their loss; slipping on a nice pair of glasses can boost your appearance immensely. There are various fashion glasses out there that provide a unique appearance for different occasions. We have sunglasses for people who do not like communicating with their eyes, wish to keep the sun away from their eyes, and for those who enjoy looking stylish. It is best for the summer and is a perfect choice for semi-formal and casual dressing. For a formal occasion, you should consider transparent designer glasses, particularly the rimless pattern. It’ll blend with any corporate outfit of your choice.

You must remember that your dressing is never complete without a body scent. This is where your identity as a fashion enthusiast stands out. Ideally, there are different fragrances for different events. For instance, at a romantic event, the right fragrance to wear as a man is a body cologne. This is because it is on the skin for maximum impact. Perfumes are rather harsh and can be harmful to the skin. If you’re headed to a wedding ceremony, a perfume is the perfect accessory.

Choosing the right men’s fashion accessories can be tricky and confusing, and you’ll  need to draw on your imagination and creative nous. This article is the perfect guide to push you a notch higher in your fashion journey.

FINAL WORDS

The beauty of any outfit lies not only in the fabric or fit involved, but in the entire ensemble. To achieve elegance in a unique style, a dress is considered incomplete without an added fashion accessory. When you dress up and leave your accessories behind, it means you just made a meal without any spice.

HOW DO MEN’S JEANS SIZES WORK?

Thank you for visiting talhasakrani.com, Talha Sakrani's Men's and Women's Fashion Blog.

In this blog, I will explain how men’s jeans sizes work!

Long gone are the days when people frequented the mall to get their fashion fix. The shoppers of today utilize the convenience and versatility of e-commerce to buy all their fashion essentials. In fact, the eCommerce industry for clothing and apparel is projected to reach a value of $1 trillion by 2025. Yup, that’s trillion, with a T.

A big reason for this popularity is because online fashion retailers offer lenient return and exchange policies. So, you can buy with the confidence that your product will be exchanged in case you’re not satisfied with its fit.

Exchange policies are a literal godsend when it comes to men’s fashion jeans. You see, it’s
easy to get shirts, outerwear, and footwear online- what with their simple small, medium, and large sizing protocols. But buying jeans from an eCommerce store is where things get a little tough.

We can all agree that men’s jeans sizes are more complicated than they need to be, right? In fact, I’ve rarely ever seen the men’s fashion jeans of two different brands being sized the same. And, what’s up with the two numbers on the size tag? Why can’t it be as simple as shirt sizing?

Well, today, I’ll take you through a comprehensive guide to how men’s jeans sizes work and
how you can save yourself from the hassle of sending your jeans for an exchange just because you didn’t like their fit.

So, without any further ado, let’s jump right in!

How Does Men’s Jeans Sizes Work?

The size tag on men’s jeans gives you two numbers that are separated by an x. The number
before the x signifies the waist for which the jeans are made. The number after the x tells you the inseam length of the jeans. So, for example, a pair of jeans with the size 32 x 30 means they are designed for 32-inch waists and are 30-inch long at the inseam.

Two important things are of note here. Firstly, notice how I said the first number determines the waist for which the pants are made. You see, this is not the actual measurement of the jean’s waistband.

In fact, the difference between the first number and the actual length of the jean’s waistband can be up to 3 inches, depending on the fit and brand. Jeans are worn below the person’s natural waistline. Here, the body normally gets wider. So, jeans manufacturers design a longer waistband for that specific waist size.

If you’re unsure what your natural waist length is, here is a detailed guide on how you can
measure it.

The second thing of note here is the second number is a measurement of the pant’s inseam. This is the technical term for the distance between the jean’s crotch area and its bottom opening. In contemporary fashion, men wear jeans that reach just above their ankles. So, you can determine your ideal inseam length by measuring the distance between your upper thigh and your ankles. If you’re planning to do a cuff fold on your jeans, make sure you add 2 inches to the inseam. You see, cuffed jeans should never go above the ankle and a 2-inch cuff looks super.

If you’re planning to buy jeans from Europe, simply add 16 to your waist size to convert your US men’s jeans size to European men’s jeans size.

What are the Different Types of Jeans Fits for Men?

While the size tag of your jeans will tell you about its waist and length, you’ll need to check its fit guide to get a better idea of how well it’ll hug your hips and thighs. Men’s jeans sizes usually boast six types of fits:

Skinny Fit

Unless a brand has a super-skinny fit, these will be the narrowest fitted jeans. Skinny jeans
will be like a second skin and hug both your thighs and legs.

Tapered Fit

A tapered fit is also known as a carrot fit. This is because just like a carrot, the jeans are
wide at the top and narrow at the bottom. You can expect about 1-2 inches of breathing
space towards the hips, while the jeans will tightly hug your calves and ankles.

Slim Fit

Slim-fit jeans offer the best of both worlds. They’re neither too tight nor too baggy. Offering a super smart fit, slim-fit jeans offer 1-2 inches of extra space throughout.

Regular Fit

Also known as a straight or classic fit, regular fit jeans are a little towards the baggy side of
things. They’ll normally offer 3-4 inches of room throughout the pant’s length.

Bootcut Fit

Bootcut fit jeans boast a smart fit towards the seat and they start to widen as you go down
the jean’s length. Their ankle is usually flared up to give that cowboy-like look.

Relaxed Fit

Finally, come relaxed-fit jeans. These are the baggiest jeans of any brand. Loose throughout, they almost look oversized. Make sure you wear an oversized tee or shirt over such pants to complement the look.

Final Thoughts

Getting jeans online can be tough. Their sizing is a lot more complicated than other types of
apparel and almost all brands make different types of jeans. Brands try to alleviate this
situation by offering generous return and exchange policies, but it still can be a hassle to get your jeans shipped out and wait for the return parcel. So, I hope my guide to men’s jeans sizes helps in this regard.

Thank you for reading this brief till the end. I would love to hear any misadventures you may have had regarding jeans sizes and getting the wrong size. See you in the comments

BOOTS FOR MEN ESSENTIAL IN 2022!

Hi! Thanks for visiting my site; Talha Sakrani essential boots for men.

 I am Talha Sakrani and on this occasion, we will start to say hello to the autumn-winter season and begin to say goodbye to the spring-summer season. Don’t worry, we still have sunny days to enjoy, but as the cold months approach (at least on the north side of the earth) it’s time to think about our wardrobe, and of course, I think it’s never too early to be in trend. So this time we will talk about men’s trends footwear for this new season, and of course, which boots formen are essential for this year 2022.

In this article, I will talk about the boots that cannot be missing this season in your wardrobe. I will give you some outfit tips so you can combine your boots according to the occasion and I will tell you which are my top 5 favorite boot for men brands.

Keep reading and discover the latest trend in men’s boots 2022!

Styles and types of boots

Mountain boots

Mountain boots have managed to overcome their main market (campers and climbers) and immerse themselves in the world of fashion.

Undoubtedly, these types of boots are very comfortable and protective, which is why they began to be used outside of mountain activities.

Although his strong point is undoubtedly the casual outfit. The best thing about this type of boots is that they are very flexible to combine. They go perfect with shorts, Bermudas or denim pants, and they are practical for almost any occasion since they keep you comfortable and warm. Let’s say the hiking boots are winter tennis.

Tips for choosing the best hiking boots:
  • There is nothing better than investing in quality shoes.
  • Look for thick soles.
  • Heavy-duty ankle straps.
  • Padded linings and soles.

If you decide to add these boots to your wardrobe, I assure you that they will be great allies, so don’t skimp on buying ones that will have a long life.

Brogue boots

Surely you know this type of boots, but perhaps what you do not know is its origin. Brogue boots, characterized by holes in the front, were invented by farmers looking for a practical way to drain marshy water from their shoes while out in the fields.

Today, neither the materials with which they are made nor the holes in their appearance fulfil this function, on the contrary, they are totally decorative. This style of boot is excellent for a smart casual style, such as going to the office, or to dinner with friends.

Tips for wearing Brogue Boots:
  • Use them with the same clothes with which you use your brogue shoes.
  • To go to work, you can combine them with a suit or a shirt and give it a more formal look.
  • These types of boots look great with rocker chinos and a cable knit sweater.
  • If you are looking for a more casual and trendy style, rolled-up jeans, a white t-shirt and a leather jacket is the option.

As an extra fact, in this type of boots it is considered that the more holes it has, the more informal it is, and on the contrary, the few holes are the most elegant Brogue style.

You can find this type of boot in different shades, with dark brown and black being the most elegant, while light ones go better with casual styles.

Work boots

Hiking boots are not the only ones of this style that have passed from the world of sports and hard work to the world of fashion.

The practical and durable style of work boots has earned them a place in the wardrobe of many.

Today we can find work style boots with more aesthetic than work characteristics. For example, boots of this style but without the steel cap that is essential in a work setting.

However, some of its features are preserved, such as padded ankles, abundant padding, grippy soles and waterproof finishes.

It is precisely these characteristics that make them a great option for our winter outfits.

Undoubtedly the brand that has managed to revolutionize the use of these boots is Timberland. Their Yellow Boots have been making their way into the market for years and have already conquered several catwalks.

Tips to use:
  • Consider that you have to maintain a balance in your outfit when you use these boots, a style with joggers and a hoodie works well, but do not make it look too sporty.

Chelsea Boots

If I had to choose some essential boots for this year, without a doubt I would choose Chelsea boots. These types of boots have the advantage of looking spectacular in different styles.

They look smart in a suit and casual in skinny jeans and a leather jacket. The most difficult thing when choosing your Chelsea boots will be choosing the color.

If you are a lover of the classic, the black ones are the perfect option. But if you want to prioritize matching more of your outfits, browns and tans are great.

Tips:
  • Suede Chelsea boots are beautiful, but you can only wear them in the fall, or if you live somewhere where it doesn’t rain or snow.
  • If you plan to make these types of shoes the stars of your wardrobe, rubber soles and elastic sides are the most comfortable.
  • You can find Chelsea boots with a pointed or round toe. The round one is of a much more casual style.

Top 5 best brands of Boots for men

What are the best boot brands? I get asked this question quite often. So after thinking about it, this is my TOP 5.

As I told you above, buying poor-quality shoes is the worst thing you can do. In the end, you will end up spending more money buying boots that will last you only a few months, than paying for quality boots for men that can last you years.

For the same reason, I always recommend choosing the footwear carefully. A good purchase is one that will last you and will not quickly go out of style.

So that you have a reference, these are some of my favorite brands, although, of course, they are not the only ones that have good quality and aesthetics.

  • Grenson
  • Timberland
  • of the church
  • UGG
  • Glutton

Which boots for men are you going to choose for this season?

THE FUTURE OF FASHION: ROOTED IN THE PAST?

Fashion is easily one of the most fast paced and difficult to anticipate industries, with its trends constantly evolving on us. Gurus all over the world work tirelessly to project what will soon be trendy, what is going out of style, and how to be on top of these ever-evolving changes. What’s “in” is purely a reflection of current times. Whether that be politics, social media influences, worldwide and cultural changes, and of course technology. Ironically enough, the future of fashion trends emerging as of late have not only been seen before but were popular not long ago. The 1990s and Y2K styles that so many of us grew up with have made a reappearance, and much sooner than expected.

Icons like Britney Spears, Justin Timberlake, Paris Hilton, and Christina Aguilera all offered some unique and at times cringe-inducing looks. Fortunately, the trends that are resurfacing lately take the best of this era and add a bit of modern flair. The influence of technology has allowed the future of fashion industry to level up even the most simple accessories to incorporate ultimate functionality. A few examples of these spruced-up trends are fanny packs, sneakers, denim jackets, plaid flannel shirts, scrunchies, and so much more. Below, we will dive into some of these top 90s and Y2K trends that are back and bigger than ever.

Fanny Packs

While they first emerged in the 1980s, fanny packs kept up their domination in the industry well into the 90s. Neon color combinations made these ‘waist purses’ stand out in the crowd. Now, we are seeing far fewer eye-catching colors and much more neutral tones. Lululemon has created a fashion trend of their own with the emergence of their ‘belt bags’. In essence, these are just fanny packs remarketed and shown with multiple different ways of wearing them. They’ve even gone viral on the app TikTok because of their incredible popularity. Fanny packs, in general, provide both fashion and functionality all in one, making them a great accessory option for people on the go. Back in the 90s, cell phones were not widely used, and even if they were, they were far too large to squeeze into a fanny pack. Now, these packs are perfect to throw your iPhone or Android into while you move around. Multiple pockets allow you to also throw in your AirPods, keys, chapstick, and whatever else you may need when you are on the go.

Denim Jackets

A staple in the 90s and now, denim jackets haven’t changed as drastically as other trends over the years. Although Canadian tuxedos are yet to become socially acceptable again (and thank goodness for that), denim in the form of pants and jackets can be considered timeless for many. The cuts of these jackets are the element that has in fact shifted, and we are now seeing far more cropped and fitted styles as opposed to the more boxy cuts in the 90s. Customizing these fall and winter staples is easy, with a huge variety of washes and styles. A white denim jacket is perfect for a summer evening whereas a dark blue denim jacket can be popped on for a fall stroll. Ultimately, it is a pretty safe bet that denim jackets will be sticking around for the long haul.

Plaid Flannel Shirts

Revisit any iconic movie for the 90s and you can be guaranteed to spot a plaid flannel shirt at some point. These shirts were absolutely everywhere during this era and have made their way back to the top of the fashion trend list for 2022. Muted neutral tones with minimal pops of reds, greens, and blues are the most often seen color schemes for classic flannels. Even the aspect of tying them around your waist has been brought back, which feels like a true ode to the 90s era. This contributes to one of the perks of plaid flannels, which is the ability to throw them on during chillier weather and then tie it around the waist when it heats up.

Bright Watches

Chunky, brightly colored, and minimalistic were the most commonly seen attributes when it came to watches in past decades. Especially in the year 2000, a general rule of thumb was “the brighter the better”. As a result, we saw some gaudy and large wrist accessories. Now, due to the increase in available technology, we can see smartwatches taking the industry by storm. The Apple watch maintains its place as the number one selling smartwatch, and for good reason. Apple has allowed for what seems like infinite possibilities when it comes to watch bands. As a result, there is an option for quite literally every style out there. The ability to match your watch to your outfit each day is a unique ability that previously only existed for those wealthy enough to own hundreds of watches.

One thing is for certain, fashion trends are sure to be recycled at some point in some capacity. If one of your favorite styles is currently on the outs, you may just be in luck in the next few years. As technology, politics, and cultural changes continue to evolve, we will continue to see future of fashion trends fluctuate and shift in order to reflect current times. As they say, the future of fashion industry is like a mirror that reflects the current state of the world. It is truly anybody’s guess as to what will be the next popular trend of 2022.

Blues About Entertainment Biz

BY TALHA SAKRANI

I thought of TV, movies, music, modeling, or even owning a production house. I started composing music, modeling, and creating my own unique style of editing. I wanted to be there, but I wondered and daydreamed about it. I got even more tempted when my friends and parents said I should do it. It was the genesis of my life, but I was so caught up in multiple things that I could not start my journey. Suddenly, I realized that I should keep my social media accounts public and start tagging when I post. My social platforms became flush with my content, and I started to have followers in less than a month. I received my first offer from a modeling agency in 2022 for an audition in less than a year, but I couldn’t participate due to my work and other responsibilities. I thought to myself, “I wanted to break into the entertainment industry all my life, and when I got an offer, I was not able to.” Otherwise, if I were selected, I would be modeling in TV commercials, magazines, Netflix, and HULU, and most importantly, I would have achieved my dream. I will still achieve my dream, and I do recommend it to everyone. I believe in living freely and in equality, and that’s why we should have the right to know our rights and the freedom to live by them. We should live on our own terms and listen to what we would like to achieve.
