Mid-Day Premium Why some people are obsessed with wearing black clothes

Black clothes are a fashion staple. The colour has especially been an all-time favourite among youngsters and has been a recurring fashion trend for decades.  Pooja Karanam, celebrity fashion stylist and wardrobe consultant says, “The love for black has become immortal.” She adds that although it is difficult to pinpoint an exact date when the popularity of wearing black clothes rose, it can be said that black clothing became popular in the 1950s with the emergence of the Beatnik subculture. It continued to gain popularity in subsequent decades, especially during the punk and gothic movements in the 1970s and 1980s.  Karanam herself is a lover of black clothing. “When in doubt, I wear black. It's simple, classy and sophisticated all at the same time.” Black is that one timeless colour that is trusted by all as it makes one look slim and stylish and thereby feel confident in their appearance.  Shared love and obsession for black clothing“There is no such thing as dark or light black, it's just black,” says Kajol Awon (24) public relations professional and brand consultant. “I think my fondness for black stems from a combination of style and practical considerations. A significant portion of my wardrobe, at least 60-70 per cent, consists of black clothing items, from dresses and suits to t-shirts and bottoms.”  For Kajol, black doesn’t necessarily define her entire personality, but it does reflect certain aspects of it. She points out, “It's not even my favourite colour, yet I'm consistently drawn to it. I can never seem to have enough of it in my wardrobe. My penchant for wearing black aligns with my preference for understated fashion and a general admiration for classic styles.”  On the flip side, Saaheel Shaikh, a 24-year-old videographer from Goa loves wearing black as it reflects his personality. “Wearing black somewhat blends me into the scene. People notice you less, which is great for camerapersons and even better for introverts who don't want to be approached or disturbed by other people.” Besides this, Saaheel loves wearing black clothes because it is the most convenient way of dressing up for him. “I have around 14-15 black clothes that involve everything from shirts, T-shirts, hoodies, pants, shorts and even chaddis,” laughs Saaheel.  Interestingly, though a majority of youngsters are drawn towards the black clothing trend, the colour also has few fans belonging to a more older age group. Suren Joshi (40), a restauranter residing in Mumbai’s Bandra, is a testament to this. “I wear black on almost all days, " says Suren, who always has a busy schedule throughout the week. “I prefer keeping a minimalist approach to my wardrobe. My go-to choice is a black T-shirt paired with blue jeans. This simplifies my daily attire decisions, allowing me to focus on more important aspects of my life without getting caught up in the hassle of choosing outfits.” This 40-year-old has a collection of over 20 to 30 black T-shirts. When asked if his choice of wearing black is reflective of his personality, he answers in the negative. Though Kajol, Saaheel and Suren love wearing black clothes, they share a similar opinion: We have stigmatised the colour a lot. Black has been given a negative connotation. Yes, each colour does have its impact on people, but that doesn’t mean that black will have a negative one. For a majority of people, the obsession with wearing black clothes is all about excessive comfort, involving less effort into styling themselves and still looking fabulously fashionable and boosting their self-confidence. “So go on and flaunt your blacks,” they say.  Also Read: Why sneaker culture in India has taken Gen Z and millennials by storm Top five reasons to wear blackKaranam lists down five key reasons why black is the best colour the fashion world is blessed to have.  1. The versatile colour can be dressed up or down for various occasions making it a must-have in all wardrobes. 2. It flatters a wide range of body types due to its slimming effect. 3. It's a classy hue that never goes out of style and can be a long-term wardrobe investment. 4. t exudes an aura of sophistication and elegance. 5.

To recreate her style opt for a sophisticated, high-necked black dress with subtle texture and a flattering fit. Accessorise with minimalistic yet elegant jewellery, such as silver hoop earrings and a sleek bracelet.

Consider a wide-brimmed fedora, a classic beret, or a chic cloche hat in a complementary colour or texture. Hats not only add flair but also provide sun protection and warmth in colder months. Accessorising can add a pop of personality to your all-black look. Scarves or shawls: Wrap a colourful scarf or shawl around your neck or shoulders to create a visually appealing contrast. This works particularly well in colder months. Oversized sunglasses: A pair of oversized sunglasses not only offers sun protection but also adds a touch of glamour and mystery to your look.

Opt for a bold, embellished belt with intricate details or a unique buckle. Cinch it at the waist over a black dress, jumpsuit or oversized top to create definition and add a stylish focal point to your outfit. Layering: Layering black pieces can create depth and interest. Try a black blazer over a black blouse or a black cardigan over a black T-shirt. Layering also adds warmth and versatility to your outfit. You can wear a brightly coloured camisole or a patterned blouse under a black blazer or cardigan. Footwear: Your choice of footwear can make or break your look. Choose colourful shoes or sneakers to contrast with your black attire. Brightly coloured or patterned shoes can draw attention to your feet and create a focal point. Consider wearing ankle boots with interesting details like buckles or studs for an edgy look. Alternatively, opt for heeled shoes or boots to elevate your  and add a touch of sophistication. Makeup: To add a playful element to your look, experiment with colourful makeup, like eyeshadow or lipstick. A vibrant eyeshadow can be a striking contrast against black clothing. A bold red lip or a statement nail colour can also stand out against an all-black outfit, adding a touch of glamour.

Mid-Day Premium ‘Sneakers are the new footwear king in India'

Sneakers have become a billion-dollar industry in India. Gen Z and Millennials hail it as the best lifestyle commodity ever. According to Statista, a global data and business intelligence platform, the sneaker culture in India is forecasted to generate a revenue of US$2.63 billion by the end of 2023.  While globally, sneakers were mainly footwear for athletes, they gradually transcended into a lifestyle commodity soon becoming a global fashion trend. In the blink of an eye, the influence of this trend was felt in India with more youngsters investing heavily in a variety of sneaker brands.  This said, the fascination towards sneakers is infectious and continues to turn a majority of young Indians into sneakerheads. We dig deep to explore what led to this frenzy and why it is all absolutely worth it.  Inception of the sneaker feverFashion trends spread like wildfire. “Global fashion trends have played a very significant role. We Indians love to follow these trends. Sneakers have been an integral part of the global streetwear and athleisure fashion movement. Further, the media, our Bollywood celebrities, models and now even fashion influencers play a key role in introducing the Western trends to us,” says Anchit Kapil, CEO, Crepdogcrew (CDC), one of India’s sneaker-selling platforms.  Many global and Indian brands identified the rise in the popularity of sneakers and saw an opportunity to capitalise on it. “Brands began launching limited editions and sneaker collections having exclusive designs that further increased the hype among young Indians. This led to the sneaker culture flourishing in the country.”  Today, almost every footwear brand in India has launched its own collection of sneakers, each catering to various customer demands and demographics. “The influence of global pop culture, streetwear and sports icons has played a pivotal role in popularising sneakers among the youth. This cross-cultural exchange has led to a heightened awareness and appreciation of sneaker culture in India,” says Prerna Aggarwal, CMO, Campus Activewear. “Additionally,” she says, “the fact that this footwear effortlessly blends style and comfort, allowing people to express themselves and make a unique fashion statement makes it a definite favourite of the young.”  Community of Indian sneaker enthusiastsJust like Harry Potter lovers call themselves Potter heads, sneaker enthusiasts proudly call themselves sneakerheads. These individuals are usually the ones who, despite having a massive collection, feel they can never have enough of it. They have a new pair of sneakers for every occasion be it a party, formal event, a date or even a festive occasion.  Sahil Nandal (31), CEO, Free Society (a sneaker community as well as a platform selling sneakers), who is on his way to building a strong sneaker and streetwear culture in India, is one such sneakerhead who has a collection of more than 400 sneakers that includes Dunks, Yeezys, New Balance, Jordans, Converse and many more.  Sahil was introduced to sneakers for the first time in Japan during his schooling. “Japanese culture focuses a lot on personal style and identity through fashion, so even during my early years, I noticed my classmates and friends wearing specific sneakers and one-of-one fashion pieces which caught my eye and made me delve deeper into the history of those sneakers and fashion pieces. Since then my love for sneakers has only grown.”  According to Sahil, a sneakerhead is anyone who is interested in lifestyle shoes. “The sneaker community is like a friendly cult with sneakerheads sharing their mutual love and fascination towards sneakers, exchanging interesting facts, complementing each other’s collection and just having a friendly banter.”  Sharing an interesting fact about the amalgamation of lifestyle and sneakers, Sahil says, “Although there were brands manufacturing sneakers, they all catered majorly to the athletes. Jordans were the first real lifestyle sneakers.”  He goes on to say, “When Nike launched Jordans, it estimated 3 million dollars worth of sales in the first year. Shockingly they actually ended up selling a whopping 126 million worth of Jordans in the first year.”  “Sneakers,” he says, “have infiltrated all aspects of our life because they are extremely comfortable and stylish. Sahil affirms that sneakers are here to stay and convert more young Indians into sneakerheads.  Sneakers are the king of the footwear world Sneakers have emerged to be the king of the footwear world offering both maximum comfort and a unique style that amps up any simple look. With the coming of sneakers, there has been a paradigm shift in the Indian perspective towards shoes. Earlier, Indians had just one or two pairs of sports shoes for special activities. Now, most of us have a collection of at least four to five sneakers which we wear either daily or on special outfits. Sneakers are being paired with casual, smart casuals, dresses, bridal outfits and formal attires making it the best fit for each attire. “However, it is essential to understand which sneakers to wear for which occasion. Sometimes, thoughtfully colour-coordinating your sneakers with your attire goes a long way in making a fashion statement and also turning a few eyes on you,” says Aggarwal of Campus Activewear.  If you have recently developed a love for sneakers and are looking to up your sneaker game, Aggarwal shares some styling tips:  1. Pair white or black sneakers with casual jeans and a T-shirt. For a more defined look, wear a pair of high-top sneakers. 2. Try wearing white or patterned sneakers with flowy dresses. To complete the look, you can wear dainty jewellery. 3. Low-top sneakers paired with shorts and a polo shirt or tank top also look great for a casual outing. 4. For a formal look, opt for a monochromatic business suit with low-top sneakers. Ensure that the sneaker contrasts your suit.  Though initially, sneakers were considered a premium luxury product, their high demand has made them more accessible than ever. A number of brands selling the product at varied price ranges have contributed to the rise in its popularity. Today, a pair of sneakers can range anywhere from Rs 1,500 to Rs 800,000 or more depending on the brand.

Mid-Day Premium Can’t pick the right lipstick? Here’s an expert guide to your perfect shade

Nothing entices a woman quite like a rich shade of lipstick. The hues, their velvety textures, and their alluring names such as 'Walk of Confidence,' 'Radiant Elegance,' 'Eternal Charm,' or 'Seductive Coral' radiate undeniable allure. Regardless of the cost, it's the one indulgence women willingly invest in without a hint of remorse.  While women have an ocean full of brands and shades to choose from, picking the right lipstick that perfectly complements their skin tone still remains one of the hardest choices women make.     Further, with the cosmetic industry having diversified more than ever, we hear of some new cosmetic brands being launched or brands launching their new line of products almost every single day.   The internet is buzzing about Smashbox’s perfecting pen, Skin Story’s multistick and Tint Cosmetic’s matte lip stains. This has tempted us to refill our carts and get fresh shades for our lips. But wait. Before you go on a lipstick shopping spree, we have make-up pundits listing down tips to help you make the right choice   “Choosing the right lipstick shade is crucial. Whether you're attending a formal event, going for a casual outing or simply wanting to add a touch of glamour to your everyday life, having a well-curated collection of lip colours is essential,” says Manjari Singh, celebrity, bridal make-up artist and luxury beauty influencer.    Adding to this, Arshia Kaur Vijan, co-founder, Tint Cosmetics says, “The significance of lipsticks extends beyond grand occasions — being an integral part of daily routines. Therefore, it's imperative that they are not only visually appealing but also safe and beneficial for regular application.”    Roadmap to adding the right lipstick into your cart for everyday use For decades, we have seen Indian women having an inclination towards deeper browns and pinks to complement their skin tones. However, while shades of brown and pink continue to be our go-tos, many younger women have gone all out and are sporting vibrant shades of purple, blue, orange and even black.     Speaking about trending shades that women prefer for everyday use, Singh hails nudes to be the best. Nude lipsticks are a go-to choice, especially for a no-makeup makeup look or when you want your eyes or outfit to be the centre of focus. Under the nude category, you can go for brighter hues of pink, coral or brown to add a touch of colour and glow. This especially helps with Indian skin tones. However, you must know that a complete nude lip colour will end up making the face look pale so it is always best to mix different shades of nudes with different hues to create unique shades. Singh says, “Nude shades come in various undertones, so choose the ones that complement your skin tone.”  Also Read: Why sneaker culture in India has taken Gen Z and millennials by stormWhile nudes are the perfect option for regular use, feel free to experiment and find what makes you feel confident and beautiful. Before making a purchase, always test shades on your lips or wrist to ensure they flatter your skin tone under different lighting. Vijan adds, “If you love a shade that's not ‘meant’ for your skin tone, don't hesitate to rock it anyway!”    Key distinctions between the kinds of lipsticks Vijan lists down common kinds of lipsticks available in the market with each having a different texture and form.    Cream They have a creamy, smooth texture and provide a rich colour payoff. They offer hydration and are comfortable to wear, making them great for everyday use.   Matte Matte lipsticks have a flat, non-shiny finish. They offer intense colour and long-lasting wear, making them suitable for a polished look that lasts throughout the day.   Liquid Liquid lipsticks come with a liquid formula that dries down to a matte or semi-matte finish. They are highly pigmented, long-lasting and often transfer-proof, making them perfect for all-day wear.   Gloss Gloss lipsticks provide a shiny, reflective finish. They offer a plumping effect and add dimension to the lips. Glosses are great for achieving a youthful and fresh appearance.   Lip stains Lip stains provide a sheer wash of colour that lasts longer than traditional lipsticks. They have a lightweight feel and are perfect for achieving a natural look.   Right lipstick for the right occasion  You must go with the shade that makes you feel confident and beautiful. Manjari Singh (Left), Kalki Koechlin (Middle), Huma Qureshi (Right). Photo Courtesy: Manjari SinghAlthough there are no rules that restrict you from experimenting with different shades, Singh offers a helpful guide.    Classic Red A classic red lipstick is a staple in every makeup collection. It's perfect for formal occasions such as black-tie events, cocktail parties or a night out. Pair it with winged eyeliner and subtle eye makeup to let your lips take centre stage.   Nude The nude lipstick is a versatile shade that works effortlessly for both casual and professional settings. It's ideal both for everyday wear, as it enhances your natural lip colour and adds a touch of polish to your look as well as for parties and black-tie events whether you want to rock a dramatic smoky eye or a minimal classy glam look.   Pink Pink lipsticks offers a playful and feminine touch to your makeup look. From soft pastels to vibrant fuchsias, there's a pink shade for every occasion. Light pinks are great for daytime events, brunches or garden parties, while brighter pinks add a pop of colour for a fun night out with friends. Pair it with soft, rosy cheeks and a hint of mascara for a fresh and youthful appearance.   Berry If you're looking to make a statement, a rich berry shade is the right way to go. Berry lipsticks range from deep burgundies to bold purples and they add a touch of drama to your makeup look. This shade is perfect for evening events like weddings, parties or romantic dinners. Keep the rest of your makeup minimal to let your lips be the centre of attention.    Bold/statement shade Every makeup collection needs a show-stopping, bold shade that reflects your personality and adds a touch of excitement to any occasion. This can be a vibrant orange, a daring purple or a unique shade that complements your individual style. Wear it confidently for special events, music festivals or when you simply want to express your creativity through makeup.   Buying lipstick online Although the idea of purchasing a new shade of lipstick online seems convenient, we are still hesitant at times. Most of us end up ordering a shade that looks perfect on screen but refuses to fit well with our skin tone after we try it out post-delivery.    Sangeeta Kunder, senior social engager (marketing & communication), Nykaa, shares a few friendly tips that can help us purchase the correct shade when ordering online.    1. It's important to read reviews and check product descriptions for colour swatches and finishes.     2. Buy from known and reputable websites. It's also a good idea to purchase from a brand that works well for you.    3. Always check the return/exchange policy and don't hesitate to reach out to customer service if you have any questions or concerns.    4. Before adding a shade to the cart, consider your skin tone. Warm-toned skin typically looks best with warmer lip colours, while cool-toned skin can pull off cooler shades. Consider your hair colour, as well. Warm shades such as reds and oranges match well with warm-toned hair, while cool-toned hair looks best with cooler shades of pink and red.    5. Additionally, consider your personal style and where you'll be wearing the lipstick, as matte formulas work better for everyday wear and glossier formulas are suited for special events.    6. Since the Covid-19 pandemic, many brands have come up with a try-it-on feature too where the customers can virtually try out products and see how it suits them. This feature has revolutionised the beauty industry and all online buyers must definitely use it.    Invest in a good-quality lipstick Even though all cosmetic brands today claim to be safe for application, it is best to test the quality yourself.  Sharing some tips to check the quality of the lipstick, Singh urges all to always look for skin-loving ingredients in your lipstick that actually keep your lips nourished.    To protect your lips and maintain their health, look at the ingredients of the lipstick before buying it. Do not buy lipsticks that have toxic, potentially harmful chemicals like parabens, petroleum, lead, artificial fragrances and synthetic dyes.    If the texture of the lipstick is making your lips too dry and making it difficult for you to even smile, it's a strong sign to dump the lipstick immediately.    Check for the lipstick’s pigment. If it needs multiple swipes to get the true colour on your lips it is not a good quality lipstick.    Further, if the lipstick peels off like wall paint or gum, it is another indicator of bad quality lipstick.    If you are genuinely invested in taking care of your lips, opt for clean beauty. Clean Organic lipsticks are made from natural ingredients that are great for your lips and do not cause them any harm. Ingredients like beeswax, jojoba oil and shea butter along with other essential oils are the ones used to make organic lipsticks.    Lipstick recommendations If you are looking for some top lipstick recommendations and want to save the hassle of hunting for lipsticks for yourself, Singh shares some of the shades you can try out  Mac CosmeticsVelvet TeddyMeher Taupe Please MeRunway Hit Kinda Sexy Mocha So Chaud Ruby Woo Diva Rebel   Tint CosmeticsGuava Matte Lip Stain Toast Matte Lip Stain Tint Hydrating Lip Gloss SUGAR CosmeticsMatte As Hell Crayon Lipstick - Holly Golightly Matte As Hell Crayon Lipstick  - Miss Rosa Nothing Else Matter Longwear Lipstick - Browning Glory (Caramel Nude) Smash Box Cosmetics Gulabae   Jeffree Star Cosmetics  Gemini   Nars Cosmetics  Slow Ride  Dolce Vita   Chanel Rouge De Baume  Pink Delight   Charlotte Tilbury Pillow Talk Hot lips 2.0  JK Magic   Huda Beauty Bombshell Trendsetter  Disclaimer: Lipsticks mentioned are personal recommendations and completely non-promotional.

Upgrade your fashion statement with a purpose

Eco-friendly fashion implies making sustainable choices in a world driven by fast-paced trends and disposable clothing. But then the term "sustainable fashion" itself is an oxymoron. As defined in Cambridge Dictionary, 'fashion' means a style that is popular at a particular time, and on the other hand, 'sustainable' means able to continue over a period of time. Despite this contradiction, the notion of being fashionable while embracing sustainability is not only possible but also increasingly essential in our modern society. Impact on Environment The fashion industry has long been associated with a significant ecological footprint. It's a leading contributor to pollution, water consumption, and greenhouse gas emissions. Following are some of the industry's most pressing issues: Fast Fashion The rise of fast fashion has led to an accelerated production cycle, where clothing is designed, produced, and discarded rapidly. This contributes to massive amounts of textile waste. Resource Intensive Traditional textile production relies heavily on water, energy, and chemicals. Huge amounts of electricity and heat are required for cloth and garments manufacturing. Most of the factories operate in areas that are largely dependent on coal for producing energy, causing huge gas emissions. Pollution Dyeing and finishing textiles release harmful chemicals into waterways, polluting ecosystems and endangering human health. Waste The fashion industry generates vast amounts of waste, from unsold inventory to discarded clothing, much of which ends up in landfills. Given these environmental challenges, the fashion industry is under increasing pressure to become eco-friendly and embrace sustainability. Rise of Eco-friendly Fashion: In recent years, eco-friendly fashion has gained traction as a response to the industry's environmental and ethical concerns. Eco-friendly and sustainable fashion focuses on minimizing harm to the environment and improving social conditions throughout the supply chain. Here are some of the key aspects: Eco-friendly Materials Sustainable fashion prioritizes the use of eco-friendly materials such as organic cotton, hemp, Tencel, and recycled fibers. These materials are produced with lower environmental impact. Ethical Production By prioritising sustainability, brands engage and support the local communities and provide safe, healthy, and fair working conditions for the labor. Transparency Sustainable brands aim to be transparent about their supply chains, making it easier for consumers to trace the origin of their clothing. Circular Fashion It promotes the idea of reducing, reusing, and recycling or upcycling clothing. This includes repair services, resale platforms, and clothing rental services. Fortunately, consumers are also becoming more conscious of these issues and demanding green alternatives. By adopting some of the following eco-friendly practices, individuals can reduce their carbon footprint and make a positive difference. Choose Sustainable Fabrics Opt for clothing made from sustainable materials like organic cotton, hemp, bamboo, Tencel, or recycled fibers. These fabrics are produced with less environmental impact compared to conventional ones. Buy Second-Hand Thrifting and shopping at vintage stores not only reduces waste but also gives clothing a second life. You can find unique, pre-loved items that contribute to a more sustainable fashion cycle. Support Sustainable Brands There is an increasing trend of brands that prioritize sustainability. One should opt for them and support. Look for certifications like Fair Trade, GOTS (Global Organic Textile Standard), or B Corp to ensure ethical and eco-friendly practices. Quality Over Quantity Invest in high-quality, timeless pieces that will last longer instead of fast fashion trends. Quality clothing often withstands wear and tear better, reducing the need for frequent replacements. Repair and Upcycle Instead of discarding damaged clothing, learn basic sewing skills to repair or upcycle them into something new. This can prolong the life of your garments and reduce waste said Dr Mukesh Kwatra, founder of Smiling Tree . Minimise Washing Overwashing clothes can wear them out faster and consume more water and energy. Only wash your clothes when necessary, and opt for cold water to save energy. Energy-Efficient Laundry When you do wash your clothes, use energy-efficient appliances and eco-friendly detergents. Line drying your laundry or using a drying rack can also save energy. Capsule Wardrobe Create a capsule wardrobe with a limited number of versatile pieces that mix and match well. This reduces the need for excess clothing and streamlines your style choices. Support Local Designers Support local fashion designers and artisans who often produce on a smaller scale and may use eco-friendly materials and practices. Rent or Borrow for Special Occasions Instead of buying formal or occasional wear that you'll rarely use, consider renting or borrowing these items. This reduces the demand for single-use garments. Eco-Friendly Accessories Choose sustainable accessories made from recycled or eco-friendly materials, such as cork, reclaimed wood, or upcycled metals. Educate Yourself Stay informed about sustainable fashion trends and practices. Attend workshops, read books and articles, and follow influencers and brands that promote eco-friendly fashion. Being fashionable and sustainable is about making mindful choices that align with your personal style while considering the environmental and ethical impact of your clothing. By embracing eco-friendly fashion practices, you can not only look good but also feel good about your contribution to a more eco-conscious and socially responsible industry. It's being more responsible towards nature, towards our mother Earth. All players, from the consumer to the company director, the manufacturer, and the farmer ought to take responsibility for their part in the supply chain and the creative process and for the choices they make.

Say goodbye to tired eyes: Effective remedies for stubborn under eye bags

Our eyes, often referred to as the windows to the soul, are a canvas that reflects our vision. However, with the passage of time, factors such as aging, lifestyle choices, and genetics can create an unwelcome presence — those pesky under-eye bags. The journey to overcoming under-eye bags is an arduous pursuit for many. In this feature, we delve into the causes of under-eye bags and unveil effective remedies to help you regain the youthful twinkle in your gaze. Understanding Under Eye Bags:Before we embark on the path to rejuvenation, it's crucial to grasp the underlying causes of under-eye bags: Aging: As we age, the skin's natural collagen and elastin production decrease, causing the skin to lose its elasticity and sag. This leads to the formation of under-eye bags. Fluid Retention: Excessive salt intake can result in fluid retention, causing puffiness in various parts of the body, including under the eyes. Sleep Deprivation: Insufficient rest can cause blood vessels to dilate, leading to dark circles and puffiness. Allergies and Irritants: Allergic reactions or exposure to irritants can trigger inflammation, which can manifest as puffiness around the eyes. Genetics: Some individuals may be genetically predisposed to under-eye bags. Five Effective Remedies for Under Eye Bags: Chilled Cucumber Slices: Cucumbers are renowned for their soothing and hydrating properties. Slice a chilled cucumber and place the slices over your closed eyes for 10-15 minutes. The cucumber's antioxidants and mild astringent properties can help reduce puffiness and refresh the delicate skin under your eyes. Revitalising Tea Bags: Repurpose used tea bags, particularly those containing caffeine, to alleviate under-eye bags. After brewing and cooling, place the tea bags over your eyes for approximately 15 minutes. Caffeine's vasoconstrictive properties help shrink blood vessels, reducing inflammation and puffiness. The Healing Power of Cold Compress: Harness the simple magic of cold water to combat under-eye bags. Soak a clean washcloth in ice-cold water, then gently place it over your closed eyes for several minutes. The cold temperature constricts blood vessels, reducing swelling and revitalising tired eyes. Eyefinity All In One Eye Gel This eye treatment gel is infused with precious minerals and flavonoids to tackle every single eye concern all at once. Stem cells are extracted from the ginseng plant and infused into this anti-ageing eye gel. Anti-inflammatory minerals like gold and silver leaf are added for a cooling and depuffing effect. Price: Rs 1079Shop at: Pink Aloe Vera Fresh Eyes Serum For Under-Eye Care Hey sleeping beauties, this serum is a treatment for puffy eyes.

Motorcycle Chaps

Motorcycle Chaps - The Perfect Fit with Safety-Seam and Comfort Fit

Riding a motorcycle is more than just a mode of transportation, it's a way of life for many enthusiasts. The thrill of the open road the wind in your hair (or under your helmet) and the freedom to explore are all part of the allure. However, safety should always be a top priority when riding a motorcycle and that includes choosing the right protective gear. Motorcycle chaps have long been a popular choice among riders for their combination of style, comfort, and protection. In this article, we'll delve into the world of motorcycle chaps with a focus on the perfect fit safety-seam technology and comfort fit that make them an essential part of any rider's wardrobe. The Importance of Protective Gear Before we dive into the specifics of motorcycle chaps, let's take a moment to emphasize the importance of protective gear for riders. Motorcycling, while exhilarating, comes with inherent risks. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) motorcyclists are roughly 27 times more likely to die in a crash compared to occupants of passenger cars. With these sobering statistics in mind it's clear that every precaution must be taken to enhance rider safety. Protective gear serves as a crucial line of defense against the potential dangers on the road. Helmets, gloves, jackets, and pants all play a role in safeguarding riders from injury in the event of an accident. Among these motorcycle chaps offer a unique combination of protection, comfort, and style. The Versatility of Motorcycle Chaps Motorcycle chaps are a versatile piece of riding gear that serves several purposes. They are typically made from leather, although synthetic materials are also available. Here are some of the key benefits and uses of Leather chaps Protection from the Elements: One of the primary functions of motorcycle chaps is to provide protection from the elements. Riding at high speeds can expose riders to wind, rain, and debris. Chaps cover the lower half of the legs, shielding them from these elements and helping riders stay comfortable during long rides. Abrasion Resistance: In the unfortunate event of a slide or fall motorcycle chaps offer excellent abrasion resistance. The leather or synthetic material acts as a protective barrier reducing the risk of road rash and other injuries. Style and Identity: Chaps are not just about safety they also add to a rider's sense of style and identity. Many riders personalize their chaps with patches, embroidery, or other embellishments to reflect their personality and affiliations. Comfort and Fit: Comfort is a paramount concern for riders especially during extended journeys. Well-fitted chaps can provide comfort by reducing fatigue and muscle strain. Let's explore what makes the perfect fit in motorcycle chaps. The Perfect Fit: A Critical Aspect of Motorcycle Chaps The fit of motorcycle chaps is crucial for both comfort and safety. Ill-fitting chaps can cause discomfort, restrict movement, and in some cases, compromise safety. Therefore it's essential to find chaps that offer the perfect fit for your body. Measuring for the Perfect Fit: Before purchasing motorcycle chaps you should take accurate measurements of your waist, hips, inseam, and thigh circumference. These measurements will help you determine the right size and ensure a comfortable fit. Waist and Hip Adjustment: Many motorcycle chaps come with adjustable waist and hip straps or belts. These features allow riders to customize the fit to their liking ensuring that the chaps stay securely in place during the ride. Length and Inseam: The length of your chaps is critical for safety and comfort. Chaps that are too short can leave your lower legs exposed while those that are too long can bunch up and impede movement. A proper inseam measurement ensures that the chaps cover your legs adequately. Thigh Fit: The fit around the thighs is essential for ease of movement. Chaps that are too tight in this area can restrict your ability to bend your knees and maneuver the motorcycle. Look for chaps that provide enough room for comfortable leg movement. Try Before You Buy: Whenever possible try on chaps in-store before making a purchase. This allows you to assess the fit and comfort firsthand. If buying online make sure the retailer has a good return policy in case the chaps don't fit as expected. Safety-Seam Technology: Enhancing Protection When it comes to protective gear the devil is in the details. Motorcycle chaps in particular, can benefit from innovative features that enhance safety. One such feature is safety-seam technology. What Is Safety Seam Technology? Safety-seam technology is a manufacturing process that reinforces the seams of motorcycle chaps. Seams are traditionally vulnerable areas in any garment and in the case of chaps they are crucial for maintaining the structural integrity of the protective layer. Safety-seam technology involves using strong abrasion-resistant materials and stitching techniques to make the seams more durable and less prone to tearing during an accident. Benefits of Safety-Seam Technology: Enhanced Durability: Safety-seam technology significantly increases the lifespan of motorcycle chaps by reducing seam failures. This ensures that your chaps remain protective over the long term. Improved Crash Protection: In the event of a crash or slide, the reinforced seams are less likely to split open, providing an extra layer of protection against abrasions and road rash. Peace of Mind: Knowing that your chaps are equipped with safety-seam technology can boost your confidence on the road allowing you to focus on the ride rather than potential risks. Comfort Fit: Riding in Style and Ease Comfort is a top priority for riders especially on long journeys. Motorcycle chaps are no exception. A comfortable fit can make a significant difference in how you experience your ride. Flexible Material: Choose chaps made from high-quality leather or synthetic materials that are both durable and flexible. The material should allow for a full range of motion without feeling restrictive. Lined Interior: Look for chaps with a soft comfortable lining on the interior. This lining not only adds to the overall comfort but also helps prevent chafing and irritation during extended rides. Ventilation and Breathability: Chaps should allow your skin to breathe. Features like zippered vents or perforations in the material can help regulate temperature and prevent overheating. Ergonomic Design: Consider chaps designed with an ergonomic fit that follows the natural contours of your body. This design minimizes discomfort and allows for a more relaxed riding experience.   A Brief History of Leather Chaps Leather chaps have a rich history deeply rooted in utilitarianism and practicality. Originally designed for cowboys and ranchers in the American West, chaps were meant to provide protection from thorny brush, harsh weather, and other elements while riding horses. These early chaps were rugged, functional, and designed to endure the demands of the frontier. Over time, the function of leather chaps evolved and they found their way into various subcultures, including the LGBTQ+ community. In the mid-20th century, the leather scene emerged as a subculture within the gay community and leather chaps became an iconic symbol of this movement. The leather scene represented rebellion, strength, and a rejection of societal norms making it a perfect match for individuals who wanted to express their true selves without inhibition. Conclusion Motorcycle chaps are more than just a fashion statement; they are a vital part of a rider's protective gear. The perfect fit safety-seam technology and comfort features all contribute to a safer and more enjoyable riding experience. When shopping for motorcycle chaps remember to prioritize safety by choosing the right size and checking for safety-seam technology. Additionally, prioritize comfort with flexible materials a lined interior and ventilation features. With the right pair of chaps you can hit the open road with confidence knowing you're well-protected and comfortable on your motorcycle adventures.
