Party dresses: Tips for achieving homecoming dresses look!

I bet one of the first things you think about when you receive an invitation: “What clothes will I wear?” After all, there are so many choices for party dresses, each with style, neckline, length, color and prints … It seems impossible to know which marriage is the best for you, right?

It turns out that the answers to your questions are simpler than you think. It’s even in your own hands: in a wedding invitation.

The invitation informs the location of the ceremony, time and even party style. From this information, you can choose a suitable and extraordinary model.

Want to see how easy it is to get it? Here are some examples of clothes that will be worn for each type of wedding. But…whatever your choice, you should buy from the right place. If you want to buy online, JJ’s House should be one of the best places.

Classic Wedding Party Dresses

Because it is at night, the classic wedding asks for a long party dress, but nothing is too flashy. It must be elegant and sophisticated in the smallest detail. You can use from the most vibrant tones to paste. The important thing is that the dress attracts attention by itself. You can use brightness, but without excessive. You can use accessories only, more than that it is not elegant. Other guests will pay attention to you and the bride does not like it.

Party Dresses for Modern Weddings

Because of its modern wedding, you can bet calmly on fashion models, with different pieces and bright colors. Lengths range from short, approximately knee height (shorter than this is considered inappropriate for marriage). The choices change according to your style and what’s fashionable.

Party Dresses For Rustic Weddings

Light dress, with prints and lace. Nothing is too flashy, but be different and cheerful – just like a rural wedding. Think of it this way: if it’s a long party dress, you can use a fine bright color print or model. In short, choose a knee-high model, with different pieces or even lace.

Also, prefer skirts that are lighter and slimmer. What about investing in trends?

Tips for printing: Don’t buy a knit dress. Never! They are not elegant enough for a wedding. Models with more floral or embroidered fabrics are the best choice.

Wedding Party Dresses in the Field

For rural weddings, choose dresses that are light and elegant. Flat models with different cutouts, even clothes, are the best choice. The length of the dress varies according to the time of the celebration. Remember: during the day, short clothes. In the afternoon and long afternoons it is better. This party is closer to the classic. Many brides bet on weddings in the field with luxurious details.

Wedding Party Dresses on the Beach

Beach weddings can have models of all types, provided they do not have brightness. Short and transparent models are the best. Because the weather will be very hot, you need to choose a “fresh” model to enjoy the party without feeling hot.

If in doubt, bet on a simple party dress

This is the joker for any wedding. Simple party dresses are suitable for all types of parties. We suggest you to consider two piece homecoming dresses. You can also distinguish through accessories. For example, the better the party, the brighter and more sophisticated your accessories. And more simply, fewer accessories. Balance style and that’s it!

The Men’s Guide to Swimwear

Even if you don’t swim, everyone needs to pack some swimwear on their summer holiday. Lounging by the pool or tanning on the beach demands comfortable, cool and quick-drying clothing that won’t fill up with sand and keeps you looking stylish while relaxing abroad. So, here’s our quick guide to picking out the best men’s swimwear this season:

Styles of swimwear

Different holiday destinations have different style codes: for example, in Ibiza swim shorts of all types are seen everywhere while, in some countries, most notably France, if you go to a public pool you may be required to wear tight-fitting swimwear.

Briefs, trunks and jammers

These tight-fitting lycra models are ideal for sport swimming as they don’t fill with water. Briefs (aka “Speedo style”) offer the least coverage, trunks are more square cut and may extend down the thigh, while jammers are the longest cut and some designs reach down to the knee. Most people usually leave this sort of swimwear at home and prefer something looser and less fitted for holiday swimming.

Swim shorts

Swim shorts come in varying lengths and cuts from a skimpy high-leg cut (often referred to as classic, retro or volley short) to a long length Bermuda or boardshort style that reaches to the knee. Most fall to mid-thigh and have an internal mesh brief to offer additional support, while some come with handy zip pockets which can be useful for a few coins or keys.

Board shorts are a type of swim short that is usually a longer length and has a drawstring waist. They often don’t have the internal mesh, and some prefer to wear brief-style swimwear underneath.Trunks can refer to tight cut swimwear or a type of swim short that is mid-thigh in length, often with an elasticated rather than drawstring waist.

Materials

Most swimwear is made from polyester or nylon as it is quick to dry and doesn’t hold water, but lycra or elastane is used for tighter fitting swimwear to stop it from going baggy. Polyester swim shorts are typically preferred for use in swimming pools, as nylon is not chlorine-resistant, which leads to colour fade and the fabric degradation.

Sizing

Swimwear is usually sized using relative sizing – small, medium, large, etc. – so if you aren’t sure which size you need, you should check the manufacturer’s size guide. Some styles are sold, like shorts and trousers, by waist size. As waists are usually elasticated or adjustable, you may find sizing up or down offers the most comfortable fit depending on your hip and thigh measurements.

Designs

Almost anything goes when it comes to swim shorts. Board shorts are traditionally brightly patterned – often with floral motifs. Stripes are fashionable this year, and if you want to choose a pair of shorts that won’t look dated, you can’t go too wrong with black or navy and white colourways.

Accessories

In Italy, it is common for swim caps to be worn, so you may wish to pack one. Lycra caps are more comfortable to wear than silicone or latex. You may also want to pack a pair of goggles, since these are essential if you are training and useful if you want to see underwater at any time. Make sure they fit and are comfortable, or they will let water in.

If you’ve got a bit of extra space in your suitcase, then an easy-to-use snorkel mask allows you to snorkel with a reduced risk of breathing in water.

Tambour Horizon The spirit of Louis Vuitton Travel

The new Tambour Horizon is a unique connected experience that fully encompasses Louis Vuitton’s spirit of travel, craftsmanship and creative values. Building on the success of previous models, this Tambour Horizon collection boasts a new element of design, new materials and new colours, taking user experience, functions and technical innovation further than ever before.

New exclusive options allow you to personalise the dial with your chosen watch face. In the spirit of connected technology, time display is essentially digital. The digital mode is embellished with emblematic motifs – Monogram, Damier, or even with the V for Gaston-Louis Vuitton. These have all been entirely reworked, deconstructed, and broken down to create transparent effects and contrasts with the Monogram Flowers. The new colour palette, the contrasting bands and the option of adding your initials mean that an almost infinite number of aesthetic combinations are possible all in the image of the House. Special watch faces have been added to the existing collection, featuring the same strong design aesthetic typical of a Louis Vuitton runway show.

Embodying Louis Vuitton’s art of travel, the Tambour Horizon watch enriches the “My Travel” experience by grouping all of your travel information together in one place. The dedicated watch faces sync with your hotel, flight or train bookings, as well as your departure and arrival times. Before, during and at the end of your journey, all of your essential travel information is displayed so that you have it constantly on hand.And finding the address of a hotel, restaurant or tourist site has never been so easy thanks to the exclusive City Guide function, featuring 30 international destinations.

Accompanying you throughout your day, at work and at play, the Tambour Horizon offers exclusive new functions, combined with watch faces devoted to guarantee perfect readability and clarity. Across the rim, a new 24-hour ring with day/night indicator, visible even when the watch is in ambient mode, lets you view all your data at a glance. With its own watch face, the “Agenda” function separates meeting times from free time with distinctive coloured segments.

The “Step counter” function lets travellers who like to visit cities on foot record the distance treked and the most intensive periods of movement. Again, the watch face has a detailed design with the LV Archlight, the iconic Louis Vuitton sneaker, pictured at the centre.

The “Pollution” function displays the air quality index on the watch face in real time. Air quality projections are displayed in coloured segments. Weather and temperature forecasts put the finishing touches to the Tambour Horizon’s functions.

While the unisex case retains the emblematic Tambour Horizon shape and inverted curved case, the watch is now available in polished white ceramic. The use of this material in craftsmanship smart watchmaking is a true feat of technical excellence. In addition to new versions in polished steel, matte black PVD, white ceramic and white ceramic with gem-set horns, there is also a matte brown PVD model. This colour has been an integral part of Louis Vuitton’s aesthetic since 1854, used most prominently in the emblematic Monogram design.

Complementing Louis Vuitton’s style and expressing the concept of personalisation, interchangeable straps are available in new versions with unique patterns, colours and materials.

Making the Tambour Horizon watch even more intuitive, the various functions are now accessed quickly and easily with a rotating crown that can be turned with a single finger. With the new Qualcomm® Snapdragon Wear™ 3100 Platform**, the watch is now boasting an extended battery life of one full day and up to 5 additional days in watch mode (time display only). It also has an improved screen with excellent definition. With the Wear OS by Google™ operating system, Tambour Horizon users enjoy a simple and improved navigation experience that gives them access their information faster.

In tune with your daily routine, the new Tambour Horizon watch is not just a useful everyday accessory, but a reflection of your style and personality.

Seiko USA, Lorem Ipsum, stevie award, 360 MAGAZINE

Lorem Ipsum Receives Gold Stevie® Award for Seiko USA Campaign

Multi-disciplinary experiential design firm, Lorem Ipsum is pleased to announce that its work for Seiko USA has received a Gold Stevie® Award from the American Business Awards® in the Website category under “Consumer Products-Non-Durables.”

The award was presented on Tuesday, June 11 during the 17th Annual American Business Awards banquet in New York City. The American Business Awards feature a wide selection of categories to recognize the achievements of creative professionals working in web development, corporate communications, video production, app development, investor relations and live events.

Lorem Ipsum took on the challenge of taking Japanese manufacturer of watches, Seiko USA’s website which was absent of sales or software integration capabilities, and built a sales-drivensite using Shopify’s platform. As storytellers in a digital world, Lorem Ipsum’s goal in both the user experience and overall design was to ensure the product remained the ultimate focus while keeping with the brand’s aesthetic and transforming Seiko enthusiasts into paying customers. Their approach not only provided significant technical enhancements but also told the brand story with new and improved user experiences across all devices. Lorem Ipsum’s team of programmers created the Seiko Sync app, expanding the native Shopify features to create aunique consumer experience. For example, customizable filters allow users the option to searchfor products by technology, dial color, size and various other important consumer factors.

Their developers also created custom software, such as Shop Social, that enables enhanced capabilities beyond Shopify’s existing offerings, including a unique Instagram plug-in that integrated directly with the brand’s channel allowing for a continuous and curated feed of imagery.

By moving away from traditional marketing approaches and instead, utilizing social media and strategic retargeting tactics, Lorem Ipsum was able to drive traffic to Seiko’s U.S. page and increase sell-through. The customer management process was also customized while working closely with Seiko’s IT and fulfillment teams to create a cohesive system of applications and notifications to give Seikobetter sales and product functionality insights; ultimately, allowing Seiko to better understand end-users’ likes and dislikes in order to create content accordingly to engage users and improvethe overall purchase process.

“It is an honor to be recognized for our contribution,” says Abigail Honor, Partner at Lorem Ipsum. “Working with Seiko to launch their first U.S. e-commerce storefront was a big responsibility and our multi-disciplinary team rose to the challenge. Our focus was to create a straightforward user experience in which we created branded content, worked with influencerson unique campaigns and implemented strategic advertising to make the Seiko websitecompetitive. We are proud not only of the seamless launch but of the constant evolution of thesite throughout the year.”

Lorem Ipsum provided the creative assets fromvideo to lifestyle photography for all of Seiko’s campaigns throughout the year, most notably for their national campaigns-Prospex StreetSeries and Coutura Car, and designed customized landing pages, e-mail campaigns, and third-party banners that provided a visual narrative of product and lifestyle images.The team’s creative and marketing strategies led to the fastest sellout of a single Seiko product in company history with the launch of the cult classic Alpinist timepiece. “The nominations submitted to the 2019 American Business Awards were outstanding,” said Michael Gallagher, president and founder of the Stevie Awards. “They illustrate the continued vibrancy of innovation and high level of achievement across the American economic landscape.” More than 3,800 nominations from organizations of all sizes and industries were submitted for consideration in a wide range of categories. More than 250 professionals worldwide participated in the judging process to select this year’s Stevie Award winners.

How to choose a luxury watch for a man

Luxury watches for men not only represent a sign of status, but it also shows style, personality and character. If you are thinking of getting it, with this article, we will help you review the details you should take into account when choosing it:

Determine your style:

One aspect to consider is to make sure that the watch fit your style. Whether it is classic, modern, or sporty, it is important to feel comfortable and proud while wearing it. It is important not to confuse style with categories because the first defines essence and the second marks characteristics that will make it adapt to certain situations or contexts and which will be determined by your preferences, from the sporty Rolex Submariner to Longines Legend Diver to those who like the classic style .

Choose a brand:

Every luxury watch brand, most of them from Switzerland, is characterized by a very personal style. However, in the catalog they offer different categories of those who adapt as a general rule with the context or activity in which you will use and enjoy it, because the characteristics of the hours to go to work will be very different from those in more sporty models for playing golf or styles that more casual to go with friends.

Choose material:

In connection with the above, when choosing a watch material, consider the use you want to give. If for example you are looking for a watch to do sea activities, we recommend you go to a more powerful luxury watch, made of material that is very resistant like steel and which has a thicker ball that better withstand any blows that may occur during the development of its activities, such as which you can find on the TAG Heuer watch, which installs a high-strength sapphire ball on their watch. Conversely, if you are looking for a watch to go to work, you can choose a smoother watch, made of more elegant material like a fancy gold watch with leather strap.

Clock operation: Movement.

The movement of the watch can be mechanical, in this case it is divided into automatic and manual, and movement based on quartz. The latter are the most extensive because they are the most appropriate and easiest to maintain and as a rule they tend to be more economical.

How many watches do I have?

Frequently asked questions are usually the number of watches a man must have in his collection to face his days. The answer depends on many aspects because there is no number of watches that any man must have in the closet, because this must adapt to your various life situations, however, there must always be one luxury watch that becomes an iconic part of your collection.

Final tips for choosing an exclusive watch properly

When choosing your luxury watch you must try it and feel comfortable with it, see that it merges with your taste, style and needs, something that in a few seconds you will appreciate as many jewelers say:

“The watch chooses you and not you.”

We hope that the indications we have given you help you choose that watch you have been looking for for so long.
