Why wear skinny jeans!

wholesale women's clothingPerhaps the only time you shouldn’t wear skinny jeans during winter is if you’re losing more from wearing these. It might be simply too cold, especially in Europe, Canada, and northern parts of USA. If these skinny pants are too tight or don’t fit you, they can even cause you physical pain. But if you find that they look great, are comfortable and they can keep you warm, by all means, wear them. If local stores nearby have a good source of wholesale women’s clothing, you can buy them all year round!

Skinny jeans look good in any season. In winter you can combine them with a massive oversized sweater or cardigan, or a big scarf to keep you warm. You’ll want a warm winter jacket to keep warm. It also depends on your build – if you’re naturally a tall, thin lady, skinny jeans can make you very elegant and willowy. But if you put up a bulky winter top, you will look instead like a walking lollipop. Balance it with boots – luckily the skinny jeans work also great with massive boots. And they will keep your feet warm, too. If you live in colder climes, you can simply wear thin leggings underneath; dressing in layers will definitely keep you warm. And at home, you can go ahead and couple them with knee-high fluffy socks!

Some girls I know rather than putting in leggings under their jeans wear these skinny jeans under a pair of sweatpants. They wear the skinny jeans only indoor. This doesn’t seem practical, but skinny jeans can be worn to work this way. I’ve never heard of an employee that would buy wholesale women’s clothing for the winter as clothes uniform but maybe I’m old fashioned.  What matters is not only the cut of the pants but also the thinness or thickness of denim; heavier skinny jeans are better to wear during the cold winters in Europe.

Open a t-shirt printing business at home

A fun idea for a small business is a workshop for printing on t-shirts. If you have at least some basic design skills, you can create simple patterns and make a handsome profit out of it. You can easily find new customers if you advertise among your friends. Get a steady supply of ladies wholesale t shirts, and crafting materials, and build a simple screen printing workshop.

print on ladies wholesale t shirtsFirst, you need a canvas stretcher frame – a basic frame for mounting a canvas. You can buy it in a craft supplies store or build it yourself. If you’re starting with the designs, ensure it’s about the size of a large A4/letter-size, so that you could fit it to ladies wholesale t shirts and print designs on your home printer.

For your designs, you need tight mesh. In general, mesh count measures how loose or tight the mesh is, and the tighter mesh is marked by a high number. For start, aim for 110-130 mesh count. If you want more details, go for mesh count around 200-250, especially if you want to print on white ladies wholesale t shirts. Nail it or staple it to the frame, pulling it tight, so that it is nice and tight. You will need a squeegee, some source of light for the later stages. You can have multiple designs – silk screens can apply only one color at a time, so if you want to have multiple colors, make different screens!

To start making a pattern, choose simple patterns – at first stick to a single color. Prepare sketches, and reduce it to a single color. There are many software effects that could separate colors or adjust it to one or two-tone images. Print it out and cut it out as a stencil – everything covered by the stencil will be covered in ink. You could print it out on transparent paper, which will allow you to make your stencil better.

use the paints to print on ladies' wholesale t shirtsCoat your screen with a layer of photo emulsion, spread it evenly with a squeegee. Apply it to the flat side of the frame, the one when there’s no wood. Do it in a darkroom, let it dry a little bit. Prepare an exposure area – with a 200W bulb about half a meter over the place where the frame will go. Put the stenciled image backward in the middle of the screen, emulsion side up. Turn on the light. Depending on the brand of the emulsion, the light should be on for about half an hour.

After it dries, wash off the screen with cold water. It should wash away the unhardened emulsion, leaving the outline of your stencil on. Keep on spraying. Now the screen is ready.

All you have to do now is just to take a shirt, slide some cardboard between the layers of it for protection, and use the fabric paint to paint across the stencil. Slowly pull off your screen and let the shirt dry. This way you could reuse the stencil multiple times – it would wear out after around 200 prints, for multiple days in a row if properly conserved.

Opening up a T-shirt workshop

Pick a good wholesale t shirt like thisA customized T-shirt is a great gift. And it could be even greater one if you make it yourself. It’s not hard once you’ve got some practice. With time you could even start your own business if you can get a t shirt wholesale or two, but it depends on your other costs. If you have a home printer, you could simply use transfer print, or if you want more substantial and durable, you could use a photo-reactive dye that develops color in the light, like Inkodye. And if you don’t mind a little DIY, you could build a small screen printing workshop yourself!

Getting the transfer paper is simple, you could get it in craft supplies stores that sell specialized printer paper. There are two kinds of this transfer paper – one for white and light shirts, one for darker ones. The paper, the home ink printer, and a computer are the only supplies you need in this case… and of course a t shirt wholesale.

Pick an image on your computer – you could use a simple program like MS Paint. If you’re using transfer paper for light-colored shirts, you need to “mirror” or flip it. If you don’t do it, your image will be backward. Don’t do it for darker shirts. Print your design – if it’s too big, use “fit to scale” option. Cut out the image, because any paper you leave will show up as a thin film on the t shirt wholesale.

Don’t use an ironing board to do the actual transfer. Instead, take a larger table or counter, put a large piece of heat-resistant cotton like a pillowcase or a heat-resistant blanket. It needs to be even. Heat your iron – unless the instructions on your transfer paper say otherwise, select the “cotton”, turn off the steam and remove the water. Before you apply the transfer, iron the shirt first.

A colorful t shirt wholesale works well when customizedPut the cut out image on the shirt – face down for light shirts, face up for dark ones. Align it properly, and iron it into the shirt. How to do it exactly, depends on the specific brand of transfer paper, but almost always you need to do it evenly, so that every part of the paper now sticks to the cotton. Let it cool and peel off the paper when it reaches room temperature. This should take you around 15 minutes…

So, unless you are a great designer yourself, you could churn out about 20 shirts per day – maybe you shouldn’t invest in the t shirt wholesale. This method is okay, but sooner or later the entire print will fall off. Wash it inside out to prevent it. On the plus side, the print will rarely crumble. Later we’ll talk about home screen printing, so watch this space!

A couple of words on women shoes wholesale

wholesale women's shoesI watched the recent remake of Cinderella with my boyfriend, the one with fantastic Helena Bonham-Carter and even greater Cate Blanchett as the evil stepmother… and he made a silly joke that the glass slipper doesn’t mean that Cinderella had beautiful feet – it’s just that they were the largest in the kingdom. I retorted that the big feet can be beautiful… not just on a clown. But seriously, feet are weird. There’s no perfect proportion for you shoe size – that’s why you need to buy women shoes wholesale. But some women feel that they need to reduce their perceived huge feet and it’s doable with a couple of tricks.

The most obvious are high heels. Everyone knows that they make your feet look smaller – and you will look taller. Instead of daring, sky-high stilettos, you can instead go for wedges or chunky heels which will still make your feet less of an attraction.

Replace your pointy toes with round ones – the triangular feet might look sleek and sexy, but they draw undue attention. Go round – but square would be even worse. The best shoes for you will be also dark since it makes you look slimmer it will optically reduce your shoes. Go for earth tones, grays, or deep reds or greens and whatever women shoes wholesale you can find.

Don’t overexpose your feet, and avoid straps. If you want to show some skin, you can try peep-toes or slingbacks. Instead, use tasteful accents like bows and buckles to make your shoes look and feel more petite.

And of course, if you wear a large size, you might not find fitting footwear in every store. Your best bet would be shopping online. And they usually stock women shoes wholesale in all sizes. If all else fails, you can try on men’s sneakers and tennis shoes, but high heels could be made custom to order.

But seriously, if a man cares about your feet too much, chances are that their size will be actually a turn on. Don’t fret too much over your perceived huge feet, highlight your other assets. The reason your feet feel huge is probably simply because you think of them too much!

A short guide to sweaters for men, part three!

afroamerican-349806_1920And here we are, talking about men’s sweaters for buyers. I hope that not just regular guys will read it but also shop assistants might use it to advise the guys on what to wear and how to combine sweaters with other accessories, and when stocking up on that wholesale men sweater. Today we’ll be talking about sweaters for men – and what styles to pick and which sweater styles to avoid.

Neck cuts

Your simplest choice is a crew neck sweater. This is probably the most common kind of sweater for men since it’s very simple to knit, versatile and doesn’t reveal much what you’re wearing underneath. I’d recommend a cashmere, soft wool or cotton blend here since chances are that you’ll be wearing this kind of sweater through the entire winter. Large stores often purchase wholesale men sweater like this one. They’re quite casual, so avoid them in more formal environments. Underneath you can wear a T-shirt, a buttoned down shirt or a polo neck.

A V-neck sweater is a more formal choice – it’s cut so that it shows you’re wearing a collared shirt and a tie, so you might do so. In fact, some consider V-cuts effeminate – so you could use a tie to balance it out. And the V-cut serves an additional purpose – it’s slimming, creating a vertical “arrow”. You might wear a t-shirt under the v-neck, but don’t combine v-neck tees with sweaters – unless you are really proud of your chest hair during the winter…

doll-1077238_1920There are some sweaters with built-in collars – usually called “polo sweaters”. It’s a combo that implies some style and is quite fashionable nowadays. Slide a simple T-shirt underneath and rock this look! You can but wholesale men sweater like this to improve your wardrobe.

How about a cardigan?

A cardigan is a bit more old school – but very comfortable. It’s a sweater that’s not a pullover… or a jumper – I mean the kind of sweater that’s worn like a suit jacket, buttoned up front (though some are zipped). They’re pretty great because they’re a bit formal, can be worn as outerwear, but can be unzipped and reveal a funny T-shirt with your favorite band. I love men in cardigans!

And if you want to show off your physique like Sterling Archer, there’s nothing better than a turtleneck. You don’t show your T-shirt nor your elegant buttoned-up suit shirt – wear them once in a while, especially if you don’t want to spend an eternity looking for that scarf.

And that’s it! Of course, there are many other styles, cuts, and materials of sweaters for men. Give me a holler if you want to talk more about sweaters!

A short guide to sweaters for men, part two!

Hey, guys! We continue our epic saga about wearing fashionable sweaters for men. I sure hope the guys read this blog and learn how to find an elegant wholesale men sweater, how to buy them, and wear them. Recently I wrote about how to choose the right fabric for your sweater… well, you know what I meant. Now that you know whether you want a woolen or cotton sweater, let’s look at various colors and patterns!

How to mix patterns

The general rule is that darker colors of sweaters are more fit for the formal occasion, and lighter are more casual. Guys, colors do matter. Browns, black are more formal, while lighter colors are more casual. Don’t wear bright colored sweaters unless they fit you perfectly – pinks and neons are almost always right out. Greens are semi-acceptable, but any bright wholesale men sweater is good only as a visible, statement outerwear, like a cardigan.

Wholesale men sweaters can look goodPatterns on sweaters are controversial; fancy patterns like ones found on the ghastly Christmas sweaters are right out. The more patterns you have, the less formal your sweater is. If you want to have a patterned sweater, this will mean that it will be the focal point of your outfit, and your trousers and shoes should be plain to underline it. The most popular are probably argyle sweaters – with a simple pattern of interlocking diamonds in several colors. You can also use a simple checkered or houndstooth pattern or whatever else wholesale men sweater your retailer can find.

The money issue

And finally, consider your brand and whether it will fit you. There’s no point in spending $300 for a cashmere sweater (no joke, this is mid-range for these sweaters) if it has sleeves that go past your hands. If you want to splurge on your sweater, don’t get it online, try it on yourself! My best advice is – find a brand that fits you and stick to it. I sometimes advise men to tailor their clothes – but with knitwear, it’s a bit different, you can’t add or remove padding. If you have that kind of money, you can simply order a sweater that’s fit for you. You can also save money by buying wholesale men sweaters directly from the warehouse.

I hope all our male readers can afford the best sweaters for their money. In the next chapter of our exciting adventure, I’m gonna talk about sweater styles, cuts and how to wear them.

A short guide for sweaters for men, part one

men's sweater wholesaler can offer also torn womens sweaterMen tend to dress for comfort. While women usually have to balance modesty with professionalism, men usually have enough fashion choices pre-made for them. So very rarely a man decides to revise his wardrobe.  And a good choice for this might be a fit, tailored sweater. Formal enough for work or an outing, but warm and cozy at the same time. You can go to a reputable boutique, who hopefully has a good men’s sweaters wholesaler.

The most desirable is a cashmere sweater – made from genuine Kashmir goat wool. Most such sweaters on the market are a mix, with some genuine cashmere mixed with sheep wool or even cotton. A genuine cashmere sweater might even be hand-made, and is soft and luxurious. Not every men’s sweaters wholesaler will carry it since it’s usually more expensive than regular wool, but it’s worth it. Even regular wool is a good choice for a sweater – it is very absorbent and creates tiny air pockets for warm air to collect in thus being warmer. If you don’t like wool, because it was “itchy” when you were growing up, it means it was probably made from coarse wool – softer kinds like Merino are available. Men seldom choose the “fluffy” angora sweaters, made of the rabbit hair, but other animals also produce yarn.

You can be very attractive with a sweater

Of course, cotton sweaters are also available. They’re cheaper, light weight, and breathable. However, cotton has not evolved to keep animals warm in the cold winter nights – so  it’s not as heat-retaining as wool or cashmere. Cotton sweaters aren’t bad, and feel soft and lightweight, but don’t rely exclusively on them to keep you warm! You can find many cotton sweaters with a good men’s sweaters wholesaler in your district who will source the cotton easily.

And you can choose synthetic or blended fabrics. Synthetics like polyester or nylon can feel like wool at much lower price, and blended mixes (for instance cashmere and cotton) combine the feel of cashmere a with lower price. They will not work as well as cashmere clothes, but can be more durable. Added elastane or spandex makes the clothes more stretchy, which works great for sports. It’s rare to find sweaters made of 100% silk, but it is commonly blended with cotton.

In the forthcoming parts, we’re gonna talk about styles and colors of men’s sweaters so watch this space carefully!

Gift ideas for your boyfriend!

wholesale mens sweat pantsI think every reader of Brainy Girls’ Beauty should have that special someone, a boy or a guy. And with the holiday season coming soon, maybe you could consider some fashionable gifts for your boyfriend. But of course, finding the right gift can be troubling, and let’s be frank, many women have no idea what men would like. I get them a video game – and inevitably either they already have it or they won’t play it. So hey, I came up with a couple of ideas that will work as decent holiday gifts for all men.

I think the gift should be both stylish and practical. A pair of trousers is a great gift. Even if he won’t wear it to work or to down-town, he can always use them as working trousers for gardening, repair or as loungewear at home. Wholesale mens sweat pants are ideal for resting or working out, for instance. Trousers come in different styles and shapes, and it might be hard to discover what’s your boyfriend’s favorite style – so you can consult him, or simply read our blog to discover what’s the best style for him!

You could also consider accessories, like watches; a watch is another great gift. You can go with a fantastic piece of jewelry, a precise swiss mechanism, a durable electronic gadget or a fashionable and full of features smartwatch. This also depends on preferences of the boyfriend – and it’s also likely that he has a watch. You can try surprising him – if he owns a cheap electronic piece for riding a bike, try to surprise him with an expensive, durable smart watch with features for exercises. If he has a solid, practical piece, surprise him with a weird, symbolic electronic gizmo! The best advantage of a watch is that everyone can use it…

And you can find a pair of sneakers. These are practical, and as with trousers, if he won’t use them for jogging or exercising, he can always wear them to work or around the house. Some guys are very serious about their footwear – consider this when buying sneakers, buy gel padding, reinforced soles. If you know that they usually buy a lot of wholesale mens sweat pants, give them equally comfortable loafers!

How to customize T-shirts?

T-shirts wholesale can represent youThese days if you love to personalize and customize your outfit, for instance, you can easily design T-shirts as a present for yourself or unique gifts to give to friends. There are many companies that print personalized T-shirts, and many other outlets which can on the spot improve your new piece of clothing. And many companies buy t-shirts wholesale just to later adorn them with new patterns and embroidery to wear them at promotional events or to use them as a kind of uniform. Other companies give out customized t-shirts as promotional items, or to raise awareness.

If you want to design your own shirt, you need to consider what and why you’ll use it, whether for business or leisure, for a gift or just for fun and to feel like a fashion designer. If it’s going to be a part of a work uniform, the colors should be consistent with the corporate style, and it should also be machine-washable. Include your company logos, and some contact details, like a website or telephone number. And if you want to treat workers, you can personalize the t-shirts wholesale with their names – or even nicknames or some graphic details.

Sports teams are also often ordering wholesale t-shirts, and some similar organizations can sell customized shirts to raise money. And schools order T-shirts in their colors, as prizes or help organize PE classes. And if you’re starting a local band you might want to design a T-shirt to sell for your fans to stay recognizable.

And of course, if you want to make your customized T-shirt a gift, they will show that you really put some thought into their present. You can put a photograph of a couple you want to celebrate, their favorite joke or catchphrase with their favorite TV show. And if they’re into some niche hobby, you can customize it – a funny chess graphics for a chess player. Try to look online for inspiration and discover new amazing patterns!

We all become responsible…

wholesale suede skirtsWe all grow older, and once we realise it, we also grow more and more mature and responsible. We graduate from schools, start families, change our lives. This is inevitable, and it reflects our inner style. Twenty-somethings can afford to wear college dresses, but as you get older and more mature on this great journey called life, you learn to express yourself. You dress more conservatively, swapping baggy sweatpants for an elegant pantsuit. Some women stop visiting stores like Under 21 instead visiting these which can offer wholesale suede skirt. Of course, as you mature, a more conservative wardrobe is, sadly, a natural progression – unless you’re Helen Mirren you wouldn’t look that good in a miniskirt or a tube top.

I know a lady that didn’t own trousers nor jeans in er college years, wearing exclusively mini-skirts. Now, she doesn’t want strangers or co-workers looking at her legs or think that she wants them to look at her legs. She says she wears very short dresses with her husband, to impress him. This feels somewhat weird to me, as if she reduced herself to an accessory for her spouse. Still – it’s her choice and only hers. She’s not the kind of person to order dozens of wholesale suede skirts online, preferring family life and you gotta respect this.

And once you actually reach the expert level in your work skills – well, then you’re mature enough to dress not to impress – because your resume will be impressive enough. Once you hit mid-thirties (of course, depending on your work field), you can start dressing for comfort. You don’t need to worry whether this massive, wholesale suede skirt looks slutty, posh, dowdy or too feminine – by that age you probably have developed a sense of your own identity and might even start influencing others. You don’t just get older – you get more confident.
