sIf you are looking for a new way to promote your business or product there are many reasons why you should choose to use a promotional t-shirt. You can use promotional t-shirts for marketing purposes or to give away as promotional gifts. There are many good reasons for you to use promotional t-shirts - here are just a few -

Custom promotional t-shirts produce brand loyalty and recognition.

Good quality custom designed and printed t-shirts are always in demand.

Every customer or employee who is wearing your promotional t-shirt is a walking billboard for your business, service or product.

There are a LOT of people out there who own custom t-shirts - from promotional t-shirts offered by their work place to t-shirts with their favourite sports team.

T-shirts in general just have a long history of promoting events, companies, memories and more. One of the earliest uses of promotional t-shirts was souvenirs of visits to concerts, events, attractions and places.

When it comes to having your promotional t-shirts designed and printed there are some other things to consider - so you get it right.

The most popular colour used for promotional t-shirts is white, followed in a close second by black. White is a better colour to work with but you can always choose your own colour for promotional t-shirts especially if you want your employees or customers to stand out in a crowd.

Choose a t-shirt that is comfortable for your employees to wear; you don't need your staff grumpy and uncomfortable throughout the day. You also want customers to wear your shirt again and again, not wear it once and throw it out because it doesn't feel right.

T-shirts with your company logo on them are a great way for people to identify your staff at conferences, fairs and trade events.

If your aim is to have staff wearing your t-shirts on the golf course or in the board room opt for a t-shirt that is slim and fitted.

Promotional t-shirts are great incentive gifts for your staff - but don't just think of your staff member, some staff members appreciate being given t-shirts for their children and/or spouse. They also make great prizes at picnics and family days. You can also give out your t-shirts as giveaways or in contests or other events your company might hold. How many times do your hear of radio stations, pubs, clubs and restaurants giving t-shirts away as part of a promotional event, raffle or giveaway.

fBags are right up there with accessories nowadays, along with watches and belts. The industry for bags for men is growing with leaps and bounds, proving the rising demand for bags among men. Bags aren't a girly accessory anymore. Men have been increasingly carrying bags now instead of stuffing their pockets. From duffel bags to backpacks, here are the five men's bags that you should know about.

Duffel Bag

An essential bag for a frequent traveller, the duffel bag is perfect for a weekend trip as an alternative to a suitcase. There's just enough space to pack your clothes and essentials and is still small enough to qualify as hand-baggage. Its leather body, sturdy straps, detachable shoulder strap, and a number of compartments to hold your things mark a classic duffel bag for men. It's one of those must have bags for every man.

Messenger Bag

This is great for those who are tired of backpacks yet aren't completely sold on men's purses. A messenger bag is a man's equivalent to a cross-body bag, and is ideal for everyday use. Designers have been coming up with different twists to the classic messenger bag design, from a canvas body to leather straps, and with old styles reinventing themselves every now and then, messenger bags for men will never be out of fashion, given its functionality and size.

Briefcase

Many men still carry a briefcase to work, such is the lasting style and functionality of it. The design, though, has gone through some changes over the years. Modern day briefcases look more like a messenger bag rather than a traditional box-like case. A briefcase is marked by its spaciousness as well as the ease to carry it to office every day, and most briefcases today do the job perfectly. In some of the briefcases, you can also fit your laptop very easily without having to carry it separately. Choose a distressed leather finish to impart a cool elegance to your look.

Backpack

Even though it's often called the student bag, a backpack is functional to everyone, especially people who go travelling, hiking, or camping. Today's backpacks for men are made of fine leather, and come in a variety of colours and designs that make them suitable for most casual occasion. Leather backpacks are smart and sleek, and match every look, from office wear to casuals.

The Gym Bag

Today's gym bags come in a very different design that makes it hard to recognize it as a gym bag. They are very similar to messenger bags or a duffel bag, and can also be used even if one isn't headed to the gym. Gym bags are spacious and functional, nylon or cotton gym bags in solid colours are fit for both the gym and outside.

 

imagesEven on the beach we want to look our best and find the best suited swimsuit for our body! Here is how to pick the right bikini fashion for your body shape.

Summer might not have started yet, but the beach season surely did! Going to the beach after the many changes our body went through during winter can be a little bit awkward since a few added kilos might be frustrating us! You want to go and enjoy every second, but you just tend to get too anxious to get the body you want and feel secure. This year, with the latest fashion news and tricks, we will not let that frustration get to you, as we will guide you on how to pick the best swimwear for your body shape.

    • For the ladies with curvy bodies: If you have a curvy body, it means you have good busts, thighs and butt and you want them to stand out but in a classy and subtle way. Expose your curves while covering them. Pick color blocking swimsuits they will provide you with enough eye tricks.
    • For the ladies with a tummy: Having a slightly bulging tummy might be a little bit annoying, so you can easily hide it and enjoy your time without worrying about the curves. Go for one piece swimsuits with some details on the tummy; they will hide it in a very simple and cute way. If you are not a one piece suit fan, you can pick two pieces swimsuits; just pick a high-waist swimsuit.
    • For the ladies with a small bust: Having a small bust can make it a little bit harder for some girls. In this case, you should look for very little coverage in the upper swimming suits. Go for triangle bikini, or pick strapless ones and enjoy them because very few can pull off those bras.
    • For the ladies with large busts: you will be seeking to make your breast look smaller, so go for bras with underwire or adjustable straps, they will allow you to control the size and cover as much as possible.
  • For the ladies with curvy hips: for the pear shaped bodies, you will be looking for ways to bring balance between the upper part of your body and the lower one. Go for big bras and detailed ones, and very slim and non-voluminous bottoms.

2The best thing is that modern designer garments help you to look graceful yet chic. They help you to go along well with other modernly dressed girls even while wearing graceful dresses. Here are some of the present trends for indo western kurtis according to different statures:

Short

If you are short in height then you can go for short kurtis that should not reach below your thighs. They will give you a perfect look. Also remember to wear a simple legging as the printed leggings will not look good on short stature. They should have simple embroidery around the neck. Avoid wearing the collared ones as they will not look great on your short stature. It is best to wear a single shade, sober kurti as that will look graceful on your appearance.

Tall

The girls with tall stature will look great in ankle length Anarkalis. The Anarkalis have a flowing structure and lots of pleats that will add a further panache to your overall appearance. Straight cuts can also look great on you. Wearing high heeled footwear will further accentuate your height. It is best to go for multicolored attire as it will perfectly enhance your overall beauty. As for embroidery, you can go for the metal colors like gold or silver. The embroidery can start from the neck and reach till midriff. If you have a tall neck you can also go for a collared version too. Avoid wearing short kurtis as it will not look great on tall stature.

Medium Height

If you are blessed with medium height then you can go for knee length kurtis. You should avoid going to the extremities like short ones or ankle length Anarkalis as they will not look very great on your stature. Go for straight cuts with minimum pleats. As for embroidery, you can go for the embroidery starting from the neckline and reaching midriff. You can also choose back and frontal embroidery for the best impact.

Accessories

Tall Girls: Tall girls can go for bright colored hanging tops and multi string necklace with a good sized pendant. If you have large fingers you can also go for a ring (or two) in middle finger and index finger.

Short Girls: If you are short stature then avoiding too much of jewelry is recommended. You can better wear a thin necklace and small tops in the ear. It is best to avoid wearing rings as that might not look great in your small fingers.

Medium Statured

You can wear multicolored jewelry keeping in mind that it should be in contrast with your dress. Like red colored tops would look great on yellow attire but purple one might not look great on the same. Ear top will look great and metal colored necklaces with a small pendant will enhance the beauty of your neck. You can wear single ring in your middle finger that will give you a cool presence.
