Guys: 7 Tips To Dramatically Improve Your Style

Are you struggling with how to improve your style?you want to improve your style but don’t know how to start?well, today’s is for men who want to improve their styles with little or no effort. More men are beginning to realise how a good sense of fashion is an asset in every aspect of their lives because in this world looking your best keeps you one step ahead.
Below are 7 areas which are the fastest way to improve style dramatically.

Forget everything you think you know about fashion: “One of the hardest things anyone will ever have to accept was that their fashion knowledge was nonexistent, you should accept that you may not know as much as you think and think of yourself as a complete beginner, so you don’t gloss over anything that could help you see the light otherwise, you’ll likely skip important lessons so assume you know nothing, and you’ll be open to learn everything”.
Focus on the basics: “So now that you’ve forgotten everything you knew, what do you think you should focus on first?the basics, of course, mastering the basics alone will benefit you greatly too many men shoot themselves in the foot by getting the basics wrong”.

Build a solid wardrobe foundation: “Rebuilding your wardrobe starts with a solid foundation, you need to collect versatile wardrobe staples that match well with almost anything — basic items like white shirts, dark blue jeans etc because items like these will serve as training wheels while you learn to get the basics right and they’ll also keep you safe from making mistakes when you don’t know how to match clothes yet and after you’ve built your foundation, you can add more eye-catching clothes to your wardrobe, and you’ll always have items in your wardrobe to wear them with”.

Keep it simple: “You have to remember that you’re a man, and being extravagant isn’t necessary, you don’t need a lot of bells and whistles to look great so you can just keep everything simple”. “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication, keep this in mind when you’re putting your outfit together, stop over-complicating things”.

Fit comes first: “This is the golden rule; getting the fit right is your priority always but unfortunately, most guys get this wrong, and getting this wrong sabotages anything else you try, te real stylish men are the ones who can take generic looking clothing and make sure all the details are right”.

Layer up: “Knowing how to layer clothes will give you ultimate use out of everything in your closet and it will help you create more interesting outfits, layering lets you play around with the clothes you have, so you should learn how to do it properly”.

Make sure the fit is flattering: “Your clothing should attractively fit your body shape – whatever shape that may be – and look like they’ve been handmade for you, not having the proper fit is one of most common mistakes that men make when dressing, always wear clothes that fit like a glove, but don’t wear anything too tight it just doesn’t look good on a man”.

-They start 50% of their sentences with, “In America”, “Back in the States,”
-They swear a lot whenever they drive

-When a foreign song that has the word ‘bitch daddy yo’ is on airplay, they raise their hands up in one accord.

-They walk around in cliques as though they are from one ethnic group.

6 Symptoms Of Stomach Ulcer You Should Never Ignore

Stomach ulcers are painful sores that can be found in the stomach lining or small intestine. Stomach ulcers are the most visible sign of peptic ulcer disease. They occur when the thick layer of mucus that protects your stomach from digestive juices is reduced, thus enabling the digestive acids to eat away at the lining tissues of the stomach.
Stomach ulcers are easily cured, but they can become severe without proper treatment. A number of symptoms are associated with stomach ulcers. The severity of the symptoms depends on the severity of the ulcer.

Heartburn: Heartburns are pointers for stomach ulcers. A burning sensation in the chest can happen due to intake of spicy foods but if it persists and over the counter drugs don’t provide relief, see a doctor.

Hiccups and Burps: When hiccups and burps are persistent after eating or taking water or just ‘naturally’ (which isn’t) then it’s time to see a doctor for proper examination.

Stomach pain: Persistent stomach pain/sharp or dagger-like pain in the stomach may form early pointers to stomach ulcers and this should be taken care off as soon as possible.
Bloating: Bloating or feeling heavy even when not necessarily filled up with food is another sign that could indicate stomach ulcer

Indigestion: Indigestion is another common sign that indicates stomach ulcer. If after eating anything and there’s a persistent feeling of discomfort or feeling of indigestion, see a doctor.

Nausea: A constant nauseous feeling especially after eating is something to be addressed by seeing a physician.

See your doctor if you have the severe signs or symptoms listed above. Also see your doctor if over-the-counter antacids and acid blockers relieve your pain but the pain returns.

Top Timeless Wardrobe Rules For Men

Keeping up with fashion trends can be quite a daunting task, especially with the ever evolving trends rocking the fashion world like a tidal wave on a fishing boat. However, amidst these constant flux the big question is “Can you keep your closet timeless?”

While no one claim a hold on the ultimate elixir of fashion, here are some rules for a timeless wardrobe.

Less is more: Intricate embroidery on traditional and complex detailing on shirts can be striking at first sight. After repeated use however, they start to become imposing making their very strength their biggest weakness. Understated designs on fine fabrics the other hand comes with a calm and appealing effect and can be worn again and again without looking too out of place. This rule also holds true for colours too.

Collared pieces are timeless: In and out of season, collared shirts, polos and tunics have stood the test of time. Be it because of the work culture of the world we live in or some other unknown reasons, a decent polo or casual shirt will pull its weight whenever it is worn.

New is the old recycled: Gone are the days of baggy jeans. We are back to where it all began – fitted clothing – albeit with some variations. The point is, trending styles today are mostly yesterday’s wears with a little tweak so keep that in mind when next you decide to fling that old sweatshirt just because it doesn’t look so cool anymore. Your kids might ask for them.
