The most minimalistic shoe in the world

Summers are a time when less is always more. When it comes to foot wear most people want the least gaudy and most airy sort of sandals for summers. Many even enjoy walking barefoot on sand or the cement floors in the evening. We are talking about a shoe that has no layers, straps, textile or anything. A shoe that lets your feet breath in open air and prevents them from having that suffocating hot and clammy feeling we go through every year in summers if we wear closed shoes.summer_shoe_trends

So many look for a completely minimalistic sort of footwear that is easy to carry. Well we give you a review about exactly such sandals that have nothing but strands of strings attached to them. There is no other shoe in the shoe market really as minimalist as the huarache. The huarache is basically a Mexican shoe, primarily from a pre Columbian origin that became popular during the 1960s and now has a considerable demand in market especially in summers.

The traditional design of a huarache is pretty simple. The material originally used for such a sandal was leather with a thin wooden sole. Strips of leather were cut and woven in to create a completely hand weaved shoe.open_shoes

Later the design was created with woven strings with a very thin wooden sole beneath them. Now the sandal’s soles are usually rubber. With a diverse evolution process, the huarache now varies considerably in designs. More concepts for huarache have changed and many companies name their shoes huarache, but traditionally only those shoes are considered huarache that are handmade or hand woven by craftsmen.

The Mexican style sandals have again come in fashion along with their comfort and feasibility to wear. The true minimalistic shoe in the market is the Xero Shoe Huarache that you can create on your own because it is all strings. And truly it is just that simple.

The Xero Shoe Huarache running sandal comes with a helpful kit which is very easy to create. It is said to be durable, long-lasting and comfortable that you can personalize according to your own choice with a lace color and lacing style that is in the box with advantage of being extremely economical too. The xero shoes are as close to being barefoot as you can possibly imagine because it is a shoe that contains only the smallest amount of rubber protection in width on the soles of your feet.

The sole itself is pretty thin so it feel completely feather like. Your feet are free to go as they like in the most innate manner with no textile attached to obstruct or restrict foot movement in any way possible. All initial uncertainties about comfort, fit, or appropriateness for running are quickly eliminated after using them in a few walks or your very first run in them. It feels light and absolutely fabulous.

Kimberley Garner soaks up the Sunshine at Coachella

She’s worked hard to establish herself as a swimwear designer, and has just launched her second range. And Kimberley Garner has quickly realised that with her figure, she is the perfect model to show off the designs to perfection.Kimberley-Garner-Soaks-up-Sunshine-at-CoachellaSo when it came to packing for the Coachella festival, former Made In Chelsea star Kimberley looked no further than her workroom. The 24-year-old was seen showing off her svelte figure in a white £120 Los Angeles monokini from her collection as she soaked up the sunshine at a VIP pool party at the music and arts event.

pending time with her friend, Kimberley was first seen wearing a pair of tiny denim shorts over the one-piece, before swapping the denims for a floaty sarong. She completed her festival chic look by wearing a straw hat, sunglasses and tan cowboy boots. But the boots came off when Kimberley splashed around in a paddling pool with her friend, both with drinks in their hands.Kimberley-Garner-Hot

Kimberley told media recently that she started designing her second Kimberley London range close to a year ago, shortly after her debut collection – described at the time as ‘A British take on the Brazilian’ – won praise for their quality. She said: ‘I’ve wanted to design swimwear since I was 12 and it’s always been a dream of mine. I brought out a collection last year and I was amazed by the reception, so about 8 months ago I started designing the new collection.
‘I wanted it be more intricately designed, more detailed.’ Kimberley will follow up the Spring range with a Summer collection, which admits will be a more playful affair than the embellished creations – designed to embrace elegance, freedom and fun’ – she models here.

She said: ‘I’ve got a summer collection coming out that’s a bit more cheeky, but this one’s elegant. I wanted to focus on flattering the woman’s body, a bit like the little black dress where you put it on and you feel like a million dollars.’

5 Tips for Buying the Right Suit

suit-lg Suit ClothEveryone needs a good suit, and if you follow these rules, you’ll be able to find your own Avoid bargains Know your likes, your dislikes, and what you need it for (work, funerals, court). Squeeze the fabric — if it bounces back with little or no sign of wrinkling, that means it’s good, sturdy material. And tug the buttons gently. If they feel loose or wobbly, that means they’re probably coming off sooner rather than later. The jacket’s shoulder pads are supposed to square with your shoulders; if they droop off or leave dents in the cloth, the jacket’s too big. The jacket sleeves should never meet the wrist any lower than the base of the thumb — if they do, ask to go down a size. Always get fitted.

Suit ClothWhat to Look for in Suit Cloth:

Nicholas Antongiavanni, author of The Suit: A Machiavellian Approach to Men’s Style, offers a short primer:

Fabric:

Suits are made of wool. Mostly. At the upper end, you see wool blended with cashmere. You might even see 100 percent cashmere. For hot weather, linen and cotton and silk are available, but most suits are still made of wool. Stick with that.

Fineness: It’s usually reflected in the so-called “super number.” You know, “super 150′s” and the like. Two things: First, the super number denotes the fineness of the individual fibers. The higher the number, the thinner the fabric and the smoother and silkier the cloth. Second, wool gets rarer the finer it is, so very high supers — 180′s and above — are expensive. But that doesn’t make them better, necessarily. They can be wrinkle-prone, and they show signs of wear — such as shininess — early.

Strength:

Take a bunch of the cloth and squeeze it. Does it bounce back to life quickly, with little to no visible wrinkling? Does it feel like there’s something to it, some structure — what tailors call “guts”? That’s a good sign. It’s nearly ineffable, but play around with cloth long enough and you’ll come to know it.

Variety:

What you will see on most store racks is plain weave or worsted (the smooth, tightly woven stuff) — basic business cloth. But there’s more to cloth than worsted. The most common alternatives are flannel (spongy, fuzzy stuff) and tweed. Flannel is a classic cool-weather cloth. And we all know what tweed is.
