17 Fall Winter Fashion Essentials That You Need To Have In 2015

17 Fall Winter Fashion Essentials That You Need To Have In 2015

Winter’s around the corner. Now that we are in the middle of fall, it is better to have a wardrobe planned ahead. Say a “see ya later” to your summer garbs, and make space in your closet.

This year’s fall winter fashion will see some bold and bright colors. Colors that will be big hits are red, maroon, burgundy, orange, sapphire blue, emerald green, white, and of course black. Of course, one must be absolutely comfortable in what one is wearing. Because these colors are “in” don’t mean that you have to have wear these colors. Choose whatever you are comfortable in. In my opinion, I always prefer polished, yet adventurous colors in winter because it makes me feel vibrant amidst the dark, gloomy days. But that is my personal choice.

Black is one color that never goes out of fashion. More or less, we all feel confident in this one color. A black dress, or a black trouser, a black shirt, anything, is a must in our closet. Without any further ado, let me present you with the fall winter fashion essentials that you need to have in this year.

1. Winter hats for the girls

                                  From block heels, no heels, to stilettos, this fall winter will see a variety range of footwear for the women. The formal shoes have a manly touch to them similar to the blazers. There will be two types of boots. One has some blings, a good one for clubbing, while the other is simple, yet classy, can be used for both formal and informal occasions. The stilettos have bead works, or maybe stones too, a perfect for some fancy dinner.

                                  mens-footwear-fw-2014-15-armani-jeans

                                    Men, for your casual day out, sneakers are the best bet. They are comfortable, and they come in colors too. A shade of fluorescent tint will add some character to your shoes. The formal pairs are simple, nothing to fancy about them. Meanwhile, go for some small blocked heels. A leathered texture boots can come in two colors: black and brown. Both are smart, and will suit your formal suits as well.

                                    You can have one of these, or you can have multiple of these, but don’t  go bankrupt on buying stuffs so that you are very much “in” the fall winter fashion. Instead, mix matching one or two of your new garbs with your old ones is also a great idea. Don’t forget to accessorise with a neckpiece, or a big, dangling earrings, a fancy watch (men, this is for you too), and some bracelets. Also, don’t forget to line your eyes with a dash of eyeliner, and a bold color on your lips. Stay fashionable and stay warm! Happy winter, everyone!

                                    10 Simple Morning Exercises That Will Make You Feel Great All Day

                                    10 Simple Morning Exercises That Will Make You Feel Great All Day

                                    There are lots of studies that show if you do some exercise in the morning, you will be in a better mood all day long. You will have more energy and you will certainly be a better colleague, friend or partner.

                                    One psychologist at Duke University has researched the effects of exercise on depressed patients and he has come to the conclusion that exercise has a definite role in treating this condition and has an important role in preventing people from relapsing.[1] According to the New York Times, scientists have now established that exercise also boosts your brain power.[2]

                                    In addition, there are studies from the Appalachian State University which show that blood pressure can be reduced by doing regular morning exercise.[3]

                                    Here are 10 simple morning exercises that will help you feel great the whole day long. You can include some of them in your morning exercise routine or do them all at home without having to enrol in a gym. Consult your doctor before starting any form of exercise routine if you are new to this.

                                    1. Cat Camel Stretch

                                    Stretching exercises are useful for muscle toning and also preventing arthritis. They can either be dynamic or static.

                                    Dynamic ones such as the cat camel stretch, are particularly useful for doing other exercises in the morning. They are also beneficial at other times of the day, especially after long periods of sedentary work. This one is great for spinal flexibility and is a good warm up exercise.

                                    Kneel down on all fours. Start by rounding your back just like a camel so that your head will try to meet your pelvis. This is the camel position. Then lower and lift your head so that your lower back is arched. This is the cat position. Do these movements slowly and smoothly. About 4 or 5 times.

                                    Here’s a video to guide you through:

                                    2. Go for a Walk or a Run

                                    This is better done outside so that you can connect with nature but running inside on a treadmill is almost as good. You can time yourself and increase length and time according to your fitness program.

                                    Always have new goals to reach. Start with brisk walking and work up to running. At my age, I am still walking!

                                    The health benefits are considerable. You can build stronger bones and you can help to maintain your weight.

                                    Also, you are helping your heart to stay healthy and keeping your blood pressure low.

                                    3. Jumping Jacks

                                    Michelle Obama is a great fan of this exercise and has become “Jumper in Chief.”[4] They are great for cardiovascular health and also for toning muscles especially the calves and the deltoids.

                                    Stand with feet together. Jump while spreading your arms and legs. Return to first position and keep going! You can start with doing these for 1 minute and then gradually build up to the number you are comfortable with. Here’s how:

                                    4. Abductor Side Lifts

                                    Watch the video below to see how to do this exercise. These muscles are important because you use them everyday to run, get into the car or onto and off a bicycle. They are very important also for your core stability and prevent the pelvis from tilting.[5]

                                    Advertising

                                    Do about 10 to 15 raises for each side like this:

                                    5. Balancing Table Pose

                                    This is a classic yoga pose. It benefits the spine, balance, memory and concentration.

                                    Start with the table pose (hands and knees). Breathe in before starting each movement. As you exhale, raise your left leg parallel to the floor as you raise the right arm, also parallel to the floor. Breathe in as you lower arm and leg. Repeat for the other side. 10 repetitions on each side is a good starting point.

                                      6. Leg Squats

                                      Not just legs are involved but also hips and knees.

                                      Stand with your feet a bit further out from your hips. Arms are out in front of you. Then lower yourself as if you wanted to sit down until you reach a 90 degree angle. You can go down further if you want to. Then return to the starting position. Repeat 15 times for 2 sets for beginners.

                                      The benefits are that these exercises help with knee stability and can benefit the leg muscles such as quadriceps, hamstrings and calves.[6]

                                      7. Push Ups

                                      You start lying down (face down) but with your body held up at arm’s length. Your hands should be in line with your shoulders. Breathe in as you lower your body. That is fairly easy. Now, as you exhale, you have to get back up to the starting position.

                                      Advertising

                                      An easier version to start with is to bend your legs at the knees so you do not have to lift your whole body.

                                      Beginners may take up to a month to be able to do 100 push ups so you will have to start with a very small number and gradually increase it.

                                      This exercise is great for strengthening the chest, shoulders and the triceps. It is a great strengthening exercise for many muscle groups. In fact, most muscles from the toes to the shoulders are being used.

                                      8. Bicycle Crunches

                                      There are numerous crunch exercises targeting the abs. The bicycle crunch is a variation where you work more muscle groups. Aim for 15 to 20 reps to start off with.

                                      Watch the video to see how this is done correctly:

                                      9. Lunges

                                      Stand with feet shoulder width apart. Place your hand on your hips. Take one giant step forward with the right leg. Make sure the knee does not go too far forward, that is, past your toes. The left knee will go down to almost floor level. Alternate the legs as you go on.

                                      Try to do a set of between 8 and 12 reps for each leg. It is important to allow for a day of rest, so this exercise should be done on alternate days, especially if you are using weights.

                                      This exercise is great for strengthening and toning the quadriceps, glutes and hamstrings.

                                      10. Bicep Curls

                                      You can do this sitting down so if you spend a lot of time on the phone, this is a great exercise to do.

                                      Choose suitable dumbbells or another household object that you can easily hold. Sit down with the dumbbell in your hand. You need to sit forward a bit so that your triceps can lean on your thigh to give you support.

                                      Then bring the weighted arm up to shoulder length and then down again. Exhale as you lift the weight and inhale as you lower it.

                                      Here’re some important notes before you start doing this exercise:

                                      Try to do one or two sets of about ten repetitions for each arm and then switch arms.

                                      These exercises are really useful for toning the arm muscles.[7] In addition, they can strengthen and tone the brachioradialis muscle located in the forearm. These are the muscles we use to pick up things when we flex the arm at the elbow so we use these muscles countless times a day.

                                      You may have to build in a rest day for the heavier exercises, numbers 6–10. On the rest days, you can do gentler stretching exercises and also some walking or running.

                                      Morning exercise is not only a great mood booster, but will help you keep your weight down and also sleep better![8] Start including one or some of these exercises in your morning routine!
