The Men’s Fashion Trends That Will Set Summer 2019 on Fire

February 27, 2019

Summer 2019 may still be a few months away, but that doesn’t mean you can’t have one eye on the fashion trends that are set to set it on fire. By getting ahead of the game in this sense, you will be able to ready your wardrobe for the exact moment that the first ray of summer sun hits. You may also be able to find some items of clothing at a relatively cheap price before they shoot up in popularity and subsequently value.

To find the male style trends that are set to control the fashion landscape over the summer months, make sure to read on.

Short shorts will be in

The last few summers have been dominated by short shorts and, for better or worse, summer 2019 is set to follow suit.

When it comes to buying short shorts, just know that there are a number of unspoken yet all-important rules that you need to abide by. These include:

  • Getting the right fit — Your shorts shouldn’t be either too short or too long.
  • Wearing underwear that is appropriate and not at all undignified — Your shorts will show off what you wear underneath at times whether you like it or not, so don’t be wearing dirty or smutty boxers.
  • Not wearing long tops with your shorts — This will make your outfit look disjointed and it will confuse onlookers.
  • Being confident — If you’re going to give the short shorts style a go, you have to carry it off with confidence.

Elegance will be of value

Elegance is set to be of real value in summer 2019, which means you’re going to have to keep that sportswear, those tracksuits, and those trainers locked away until winter rears its head again next year. You have to stay elegant, which means buying clothes that are designed-to-fit and are made with the finest fabrics. You can find clothes that fit this bill at Mr-Start.com, a clothing store that prides itself on being a fusion of classic casual tailoring and elegant styling.

Neon is not a no-no — it’s in

For a long time, neon has been a real no-no in the fashion world. In summer 2019, however, that is all set to change. If the very latest fashion shows are anything to go by then this kind of brightly colored, fluorescent clothing that has long been a staple of raving culture is set to be very much in.

Look on the bright side, at least you’ll have plenty of colors to choose from!

Bucket hats will be big news

Another fashion that has long been pigeonholed to the 90s music scene is the humble bucket hat. This, like neon, is set for a renaissance in the fashion world, however, so it might be a good idea for you to invest in one now. If you do, you won’t look like you’re jumping on the bucket-hat bandwagon halfway through the summer.

If you want to be serious about style throughout summer 2019, then you have to consider the fashions listed above.

General Motors, surprised the automotive industry in 1939 when they held a major unveiling of a new car, a prototype that was not in production. Prior to this, major unveilings were limited to car models that were just about to be produced and sold to the public. This car was different. It was a wild new design and General Motors dubbed it the “Y-Job.”

The Y-Job was the brainchild of Harley Earl, General Motor’s Chief of Design. In the front was a long, narrow hood with four prominent chrome exhaust pipes. In the rear was a classic “boattail.” The design was a mixture of the past and the future.

Earl wanted the Y-job to be the ultimate car. To that end, he pushed General Motor’s design team to come up with styling and mechanical features that hadn’t been seen or even imagined before.   Our automotive historian at Speedway Autogroup (Lansing, KS) told us that there were complaints from many of those that worked with Earl that he was asking for technology to be developed that was almost impossible.

Completed in late 1938, Earl’s Y-job boasted a long list of firsts that included such things as a power-operated soft top, power windows, push-button outer door handles, retractable headlights and extended front fenders. And it was big.  Between its broad horizontal grille and tapered tail, the car stretched more than 17 feet yet stood only 58 inches high.

At some point in the design process, Harley discussed with GM president Alfred Sloan the idea of giving concept cars a broader purpose of using them to test styling concepts with consumers well in advance of production. Earl’s theory was that most car buyers didn’t know exactly what they wanted until they saw it sitting in front of them. But if “cars of the future” toured the show circuit, Earl reasoned, the company could log their reactions before it spent millions of dollars retooling factories to build cars the public might reject.

Harley’s plan was for the Y-job to make its official debut during the 1939 New York Auto Show at the Waldorf-Astoria Hotel. As part of that PR campaign, the company published a historic 32-page booklet, Modes and Motors, illustrated in the art deco style, which traced the evolution of art through human history—from the first cave painting in Spain to the Egyptians, the Assyrians, the Babylonians, the Greeks and the Romans, from the Dark Ages to the Italian Renaissance to the Industrial Revolution.

The Y-job’s debut turned out to be its swan song as well. After the show, Harley shipped the car to his home in Grosse Pointe and he began driving it to and from work every day.

The health problem of our digital age: ‘tech neck’

February 26, 2019

What is your ‘go-to’ position in your office chair, the one you feel most comfy in? The true and disturbing fact is that it could be creating long-lasting damage to your body, without you realising.

Some experts in the health field have identified the negative effects of technology on our posture, even coining the term ‘tech neck’. If you spend long periods of time on computers and tablets and you’re wondering if you have ‘tech neck’… Look out for aches and creases across the neck and chest areas. Let’s dig deeper into the health issue and how to adopt a healthy alignment at your desk.

Bad posture is a real health issue

Bad posture can not only give you ‘tech neck’, it can lead to muscle problems and strains in other areas of the body. In fact, poor posture is known to be one of the major causes of back problems. It depends on your posture as to which muscle groups feel the strain. Even if you’re not experiencing problems now, improving your posture is something that you should consider to prevent issues from arising in the future.

Unfortunately, another main cause of back and neck misalignment is spending prolonged time at a desk — something that many of us can’t avoid. Research has even shown that sitting time has a positive correlation with lower back pain and neck-shoulder pain intensity. You’ll be pleased to hear that there are some actions that you can take to maintain a good posture when you’re at work.

A solution for desk-based working

The first step you can take to bettering your posture is being aware of it. This pushes you to make active changes and recognise when you could improve.

Analyse the position of your body whilst at your desk

Positioning your body in the right way at work is important, as it’s possible that you’ll be sitting or standing like this for many hours. The way that we sit also has an effect on the way we walk, so it’s important to keep an eye on it.

Good posture is where the body is in perfect alignment. This is where your spine can maintain its natural curvature and it isn’t strained. The best way to sit or stand in this way is to imagine there is a string attached to the top of your head that’s pulling you up. This should lengthen your stance, improve the way that you’re positioned, and stop you from slouching. You might find that slouching is temporarily comfortable, but over time it can lead to strain on already sensitised muscles and soft tissues.

If your job requires sitting down for a prolonged period, what should you be doing? Try and sit back in the chair rather than perching on the edge, as this offers your back some support and again, stops you from slouching. Do not sit as far back so that your feet dangle though.

Letting your feet dangle can cause problems. If you sit on a high stool at work for example, tuck them in and rest them on the support. Positioning yourself so that your legs hang over the side of your chair causes gravity to pull your feet towards the ground and this tilts your pelvis backwards, which can lead to pain.

Your shoulders should also be in a relaxed position to relieve shoulder pain. Avoid hunching them up so that you can lean on the arms of your chair or rolling them forwards.  

Source equipment to support your posture

Not only do we need to sit in the right way, but we need to be using equipment that supports our good posture. Speak to your employer if you think that you need extra support or that your current equipment is affecting your posture.

If you have a desk job, a suitably adjusted chair that supports that inward curve of your spine is important. Arm rests can help provide support, but they need to be the correct height. If they’re too high, this can cause raised shoulders, and if they’re too low, it can cause leaning. As we mentioned before, make sure that your chair is the right height so that your feet are flat on the floor and your knees are parallel to, or just lower than, your hips. Your screen should be directly in front of you, around an arm’s length away with the top of the screen at your eye level. A neck rest can also be used to help you relax your neck when you’re not typing.

If you use the telephone a lot at work, you might find that a cordless headset would be better suited. This is because you might find yourself cradling your phone between your ear and shoulder, which can add unnecessary strain to our neck, upper back and shoulders.    

Move around, away from your desk often

It’s important to stay mobile. Even if you are sitting with good posture, being sat in the same place for a prolonged period can still be harmful. And, moving around at work has other fitness benefits too. In fact, when asked to interrupt their sitting at work every half an hour throughout the day, overweight/obese office workers showed a 32% reduction in lower back discomfort, compared to seated work. But how can you keep moving at work?

  • Standing during phone call.
  • Taking a break from the computer every 30 minutes and stretching your legs.
  • Walk to a colleague’s desk instead of emailing them.
  • Doing some desk exercises.

How to Get Ready for Your Summer Holiday

February 14, 2019

It might seem a bit early to be thinking about getting ready for your big summer holiday, but many of the preparations you need to make can take time – and the sooner you get everything sorted, the less likely you are to run into problems just before you head off.

The first stage is, of course, booking your trip. If you’ve taken care of that already, good for you; if not, then start browsing now! Although it’s true you can get some great deals on last-minute holidays, you won’t necessarily find the right kind of holiday package at your preferred destination, so compromise is almost inevitable for a late booking.

By contrast, booking in plenty of time means you get a better choice, so you can make sure your holiday is the one you desire rather than one that saved you some money. It’s fair to say that the idea you’ll always save money on a last-minute deal isn’t entirely true; travel companies also offer better rates to customers booking well in advance, so the earlier you book, the lower the rate you pay.

Another vital task to take care of in plenty of time is sorting your paperwork. It can take a while to renew a passport or arrange visas and other essential documents, and without them, you aren’t going anywhere. Make sure you know what you need and that everything is up to date and won’t expire until well after you return from holiday. Don’t forget to book your time off from work, including time either side to allow for preparation and travelling.

If you want to get fit or lose weight before your holiday, the sooner you start your diet and exercise plan, the better. Having more time takes the pressure off and allows you to work on your weight and fitness in a manageable, healthy way rather than going on an unhealthy last-minute fad diet. Feeling fit enough to enjoy your holiday and confident about the way you look will make your trip far more enjoyable, so it’s worth getting to work on your physical health right now.

It’s also a good idea to get your sight tested as well, so you can make sure you see all the amazing sights you’ll encounter when you’re away. Book an appointment with an optometrist Summerville or wherever you’re located, and they’ll check you have the right prescription for your eyeglasses or contact lenses. You can also get prescription sunglasses for your trip, which you’ll be needing with any luck!

If you’re using your car to get you to the airport or for the entire trip, book a maintenance service with a few weeks leeway before you go. Don’t take the chance it will be ok, because if it should break down you’ll have a whole lot of problems to deal with. If you’re taking a taxi, book in plenty of time so you get the service you want at the best rate.

Take care of these simple preparations, and when the time comes all you need to do is get yourself packed and away on time for the holiday of your life!

3 Ways to Feel More Comfortable in Your Own Skin

February 13, 2019

In the modern age, the way we look has become one of the ruling factors over the way we live our lives. In the media, most adverts are targeted towards our outward appearance, from weight loss regimes and quick-fix diet tips to the latest hair, makeup and beauty trends. As a result, both men and women are being made to feel more and more insecure within their own bodies, and with all of this pressure to fit into the conventional standards of beauty, many people find it difficult to feel comfortable within their own skin. If you are someone who struggles to love yourself and want to feel more confident within your body, here are a few tips which you might find useful to help you feel happier within your own skin.

Validate yourself

One of the most common mistakes people make is to rely on the opinion of others to feel happy in the way they look. The more value that you put on what others think of you, the more pressure you’ll feel to fit into conventional standards of beauty. Instead of relying on others to make you feel comfortable in your own skin, you need to learn to validate yourself. Be the one who tells you that you are beautiful and perfect the way that you are, and don’t let anyone tell you differently.

Make safe changes

While everyone deserves to feel confident in their own skin exactly as they are, if there is something you desperately want to change and alter within your appearance, it is okay to consider safe ways to make changes in your life. For example, if you want to lose weight, then eating balanced meals and doing regular exercise will help you reach your goals in a way that will look after both your physical and mental health. For cosmetic changes, you should make sure to use professional and accredited companies for your procedure, such as Testosterone therapy in Lafayette to help improve skin and increase muscle strength. You should also bear in mind that it is always wise to seek medical advice before making any major changes in your lifestyle.

Become more self-aware

To be comfortable in your own skin, you first need to get to know yourself. Look at your reflection in the mirror in more depth when you’re getting ready in the morning, as this will help you to accept your (so-called) flaws and pick out your favourite features too. Put thought into the little things, such as how you hold yourself and the amount you smile during the day, as making small changes like creating a more confident posture, or smiling more often, will help build your confidence over time. It is also important to work on your own negative attitudes. It is easy for people to be judgmental and critical towards things which they don’t like within themselves, so it is important to take steps to cancel out these thought processes, starting by recognising negative behaviours.

Top Ways to Find Inspiration as a Blogger

February 7, 2019

Setting up a blog can be difficult, from the commitment that is involved to finding subjects to write about regularly and for a long period of time. However, inspiration is everywhere if you know where to look for it, and whether you want to focus on your blog on celebrity gossip or your personal experiences, blogging subjects are easy to find.

National and International News

If your blog is focused on politics, or you are interested in writing opinion articles based on current issues such as feminism, you can find inspiration from local and national news channels. These will provide you with the latest news and developments in the areas that you want to write about, and starting off your article with a paragraph of current news can help to springboard your ideas, root them in fact and show that your blog is up-to-date and relevant. However, you should ensure that your news sources are trustworthy as this will lend credibility to your blog, even if you eventually disagree with them.

Celebrity Gossip Columns

Personal lifestyle blogs are becoming increasingly common, and their popularity is rising, especially with young people who have an interest in beauty and fashion. Celebrity gossip columns can give you access to a wide range of current information about the most on-trend celebrities, from what they are wearing to who they are dating. This can make your lifestyle blog of much more interest to a younger audience as they strive to be like their favourite celebrities. This can then provide your blog with inspiration as they will enable you to discuss celebrities’ fashion choices, news and their lifestyles and apply this to the reader, such as discussing the best ways to dress like them. For the best black entertainment news today, The Shade Room showcases both the most outrageous celebrity gossip and a wide selection of showbiz news to help inspire your blog.

Hobbies and Interests

After you design your blog, using your own hobbies and interests is an easy way to start writing. Whether your hobby is reading or studying marine life, you can start a blog focused around these subjects and aimed at other people with similar interests. Reviews are a great way to focus on interests as they allow you to share your opinion of a piece of literature of trip to the cinema in a subjective yet professional way, without having to distil details of your personal life.

Your Life Experiences

However, personal blogs are particularly on trend at the moment, and using your blog to talk about your life and any thoughts that you may have is one of the most unique and simple ways to start a blog. These blogs can vary in content every day, and can focus on anything from a funny moment that happened in the lunch queue, to an observation you may have had about your career or a particular change in your life. These blogs can help others in similar situations to you, whilst sharing your own wisdom and the experiences that you have on a daily basis.

Starting a Career in Psychology: A Mini Guide

February 4, 2019

Psychology is a term used to describe a wide range of career possibilities such as a psychiatrist, marriage counselor, social worker, and psychologist itself. There is a lot of studies involved, and many years of hard work to obtain the qualifications needed, but despite the hard work (or perhaps because of it), this can be a hugely rewarding career path to take. If you think it might be the right one for you, here are some ways to get started.

Get A Degree

If you want to become a psychologist, you will need a number of different qualifications, and it all starts with a bachelors degree. If you are leaving high school and want to go into psychology, then you will need to search for a college where you can apply for a bachelors degree in the area that interests you most. If you are looking at changing careers and can’t give up your current job just yet, turning to online colleges such as TUW online means you can balance studying with your current job.

Once you have your bachelor’s degree, you will need to start working on your masters, and after that, you will need a specialist qualification in the area you wish to work in. These include:

  • Ph.D. (Doctor of Philosophy)
  • PsyD (Doctor of Psychology)
  • EdD
  • EdS

Do More Than Go To Class

To get the most out of your education and to stand out from the crowd when it comes to applying for a job – or starting your own practice – you will need to do more than ‘just’ go to class. The more you study on your own time, the more experience and knowledge you will gain. It will be hard work, of course, but it will all be worth it once you have the qualifications you need and can work with the people who desperately want your help.

Psychology is a science, and therefore, as with all sciences, research is key. Whether you do your own, or you follow someone else’s, being involved in the research stages of something exciting isn’t just interesting; it will show your commitment to the area you want to work in, and could lead to fantastic career possibilities too.

Develop Other Skills

Learning what it takes to be a psychologist and obtaining all the skills required to do it is one thing, but many other skills will come in useful that might not be covered by your specialist course. Therefore, you should think about learning these skills yourself. They include things such as writing, oral communication, and skills in computing since a lot of your work will need to be uploaded to a computer system at some point.

These skills can be learned through experience and should be something you focus on whenever possible.

Speak To A Career Advisor

You might have an exact idea of what you want to do with your psychology qualifications, but even if you do know, it’s wise to speak to a career advisor. They might be able to talk to you about other options that you hadn’t considered, broadening your potential job search and giving you other ideas about what you could do.

Whether you change your mind or stick with your initial idea is your choice, but it’s good to know the options are out there.
