 Whilst the conflicts of the 20th Century was an absolute tragedy they have inspired many things today that you may not be aware of. Many popular video games have been based on the events of the 20th Century including games like rainbow siege six, if you’re currently playing this game and struggling then you can find rainbow six siege hacks online to help you with the game. Another thing that came, as a result, is the style inspiration, military-style clothing is a prominent trend. It has been in fashion a long time and it seems unlikely that it will go out of fashion anytime soon. If you’re wanting to achieve that military-style look then we have 6 great tips for you. 

 

The Trench Coat

The trench coat is by far the most iconic military-inspired item of clothing. If the military look is what you’re going for then you have to buy a trench coat as no military look is complete without it. Burberry was commissioned to create trench coats during the war as they needed suitable outerwear for the conditions that they were living in, after this he developed the trench coast as we know it today. There are many variations to the original trench coat long, short, or even colorful. 

 

 

The Bomber Jacket

The bomber jacket is a very versatile jacket that tends to go with any outfit you’re wearing. Many people don’t know that the bomber jacket was originally used to keep pilots warm in cockpits as many of the cockpits that they were flying in were so thin there was a chance of freezing. The original bomber jacket was made from leather and was much different from the lightweight bomber jackets that have been in fashion for the last few seasons. 

 

Chino’s

Chino’s now has the reputation as the perfect pants for any events you may be attending that have a smart casual dress code. They are most commonly spotted on college campuses so it may be surprising that Chino’s were originally designed for war. They were based on khakis and played an important part in helping to camouflage soldiers that were stationed in India. Chinos paired with either of the jackets mentioned above is a great military-style look. 

 

Desert Boots

Desert boots are another popular fashion item that is vital to achieving the military style that you want. These boots are popular as with the bomber jacket they are versatile and they are also made with high-quality fabrics. These boots were initially made for soldiers that were stationed in Burma in the 1940s as they needed more comfortable shoes and suede was the best material available.  

 

Cardigan 

This is usually one of the most surprising items that were originally developed for military use. It was developed for those soldiers who were fighting for Britain in the Crimean War, originally, they didn’t have sleeves but the designs were quickly changed to include long sleeves. Now cardigans are one of the most popular items of clothing from every age range from old-age pensioners to children at school. This is another great item to purchase if you’re trying to achieve a military-style look. 

 

Combat Trousers

Combat trousers are another iconic piece of military clothing that any person wanting to achieve a military-style look will need in their wardrobe. They were designed in the First World War as soldiers needed pockets to hold medicine and now they have become trousers that are worn on casual days. Combat trousers and a trench coat are the 2 most important items getting that military style.

Cleaning Your Kit

Whether you are working on putting together garments or hair and makeup you will more than likely require a kit of some kind that is put together well and organized. Organization really is key when it comes to fashion week as you just don’t have the time to be frantically looking around for the things you need, as a professional within this industry you should be carrying an organized kit anyway in order to portray yourself as a professional. If you have not already I would recommend that you compile a list of everything that you are going to need for the week, but all of the items in categories of which items are going to be used together, and organize them accordingly. It goes without saying that for any of you that are makeup artists it is important that all of the pieces of your kit are cleaned and sanitized as you should be doing with your normal clients anyway.

 

Don’t Stop Helping Out

When it comes to working on the actual event you will quickly learn how there is no time for anyone to be standing around doing nothing, even if you have finished your assignment you should be reaching out to other stylists around you to find out if there is anything that you can be helping with. Fashion week is about making an impression on those around you, there are many high profile industry icons who will be in attendance so making sure that you are showing them how much of a team player you are is crucial. Although being able to work on such a prestigious event should be good enough, there is a real opportunity here to impress some influential figures and further your career so you will want to make sure you are working very hard to make a positive impression.

 

Making An Impression

Fashion week is one of the most important events within the fashion industry and to stand a chance of being invited to work there again you need to show that you can deal with the stressful and fast-paced environment. You will be given specific tasks to carry out by your handler however if you are lucky enough to complete them early you should be going around and helping your peers, fashion week relies upon quick look changes so showing that you are trying to make the event run smoothly is the right thing to do.

Vaping. It is the trend that has swept over the planet in full force. No matter how people try to push back against it, people continually invest in their vapes. It seems like only yesterday vaping had just emerged, riddled with cautious voices crying out against it and people saying it would never catch on. But those voices are now being drowned out and the nay-sayers are quiet. Vaping is here and it is here to stay.

But how does vaping go from being a simple smokers alternative, designed to help people quit, to being one of the biggest industries on the planet. Alongside it also being one of the biggest fashion trends of the 21st  century. Today we are going to do a deep dive on vaping, examining its early years and looking at its eventual rise into fashion icon history.

Humble Origins

Vaping was born out of the ever raging battle against smoking addiction. Smoking is one of the biggest killers on the planet. With proven studies showing its clear links to a number of heart and lung diseases. And, of course, the correlation between smoking and cancer is undeniable.

And yet, despite millions dying from smoking-related illnesses every year, smoking remains legal. This is due to the big tobacco companies having enough money to lobby for laws to stay the way they are. But this battle is where vaping comes from.

Starting out as E-cigarettes designed to give a nicotine hit to the user to help them ween off of cigarettes. Here is something you may not know, the nicotine in cigarettes is addictive but it isn’t actually the worst part of smoking. It is all the dangerous chemicals inside the cigarettes, mixed with the act of inhaling smoke, that causes the most damage. Nicotine still has a number of mental effects that make it horribly dangerous.

So E-cigarettes were a cheaper, safer alternative to smoking. But the issue was this early tech was cumbersome, ugly, and unresponsive. So it went largely ignored for a long time. Until we finally got the first proper Vaporiser.

Vapes

Vaporizer technology was nothing new. Used in a lot of fields from the sciences to medicine and everything in between. But when Vape companies finally released the first batches of flavored vape juice, combined with nicotine, all bets were off. Early adopters flocked and began vaping everywhere they could, leading to a lot of memes and jokes about people who vape.

But eventually, the trend picked up. In relation to its impact on smoking, it did help a lot of people quit. Being able to slowly ween themselves down on their nicotine intake was a valuable tool. But for some people, it was a doubled edge sword. Their nicotine intake now doubled as they could vape inside and smoke outside.

And technology only improved. Soon people were making their own vape juices, exploring exotic flavors. People were getting custom vapes and vape accessories. People began vaping with delta 8 thc and various cbd oils as well. Vaping was seeping into a lot of cultural areas.

Fashion Trend

One day vaping finally hit America in a huge way. Juul pods started surfacing, mini vapes that could be easily concealed, and the lovely flavors associated with vaping made it very enticing for the younger crowd. And then came TikTok.

A wave of influencers would parade themselves around, flashing their vapes for the world to see. And their audience lapped it up and, wanting to be just like their idols, millions began vaping. Suddenly it wasn’t just smokers that were vaping. People were buying non-nicotine based vapes and simply vaping for the flavors. It had become an area all its own.

Soon many fashion icons, aside from the TikTokers, started vaping proudly in public too. Further pushing that vapes were now as much a fashion icon as they were a tool to combat smoking. With companies creating new and exotic flavors every year and the vaping community growing by the day, it seems vaping is here to stay. We have even seen vaping conventions popping up, where people go to compete in blowing smoke, discuss and trade and just be with other vape enthusiasts.

A Dangerous Trend

It would be negligent to look at all this and see it as just a positive. In fact, we would go as far as to say that this may be one of the more dangerous trends to appear lately.

Medically speaking there is little evidence that vaping non-nicotine vape liquid has any negative health effects. Some hospitals have claimed that odd-viscous liquid has been shown to form in the lungs because of it, but these claims are anomalous.

The big danger has come from the influx of young people now vaping. But you might be thinking, where is the danger if the juice is nicotine free.

Smoking addiction is more than just nicotine. It is the lifestyle attached to it. Any smoker will tell you the social aspect of it is what kept them smoking for so long. Vaping could be seen as a gateway to smoking. Or a way to easily get nicotine introduced into their lifestyle. Not to mention vaping is an addictive activity in and of itself. To have so many teenagers now addicted to this lifestyle is not encouraging at all.

But we might be worrying needlessly. What do you think about it all? A welcome fashion trend, or a dangerous sign of the times?

Music is something that is enjoyed by many. People love listening to music online, on CDs’ or go to concerts. However, it is quite easier for the audience to find good music through various sources. But, it may not be that easy for the musicians. They tend to face a lot of competition these days, as there are a lot many budding musicians and bands today than before.

This is the reason why there is a need for proper marketing techniques and strategies to be in place. Proper marketing channels will help to reach out to a larger crowd effectively.

Some of how an independent band or musician can promote their work is discussed below:

Professional website and logo

These days a lot is going on in the entertainment and digital market. New talents are rising, older ones are already there: all this is making it more competitive. Therefore, a musician must build a presence in the field.

A good professional website is the first step to build an online presence. It can be used to reach to give good content to the fans and followers. Also, make sure to have an exciting logo of the music band or one music brand. The visual element of a pogo makes it more appealing and identifiable for the fans.

Make only great music

One of the biggest mistakes that many musicians tend to do is that they release even a subpar album or music. Yes, a musician tends to spend a lot of time developing and creating a piece of an album. But, more important that increasing fans is to not lose the already existing ones.

Bad music can do bigger harm musicians when early in the career. Be a self-critic and only release that music which one has full belief in. if a track is bad, then do no release. It can ruin the growth of a new budding musician.

Social media

Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Youtube, and many more. All these are the best platforms for a new and rising musician or band to engage with their fans. People like engagement and they want to know what their favorite musician is doing. Also, this generation is busy finding new things on social media channels.

Therefore, this is the best chance for a musician to make their social media pages more active and exciting. Utilize social media pages to talk to fans, make an album track viral, have a live session, or premier the new album on social media.

Keep gigging

One of the golden rules for any musician is to connect to the audience through live acts. So, if one wants to bring in more fans and followers, they must take up live gigs every time there is an option.

Play in clubs, open mics, street fests, events, other musician’s events, and venues, etc. Choose those places where there will be more fans and listeners of the same genre which one plays. Also, be regular with gigs in the same places. This will make the audience more aware of the band.

E-mail marketing

Yes, musicians too can make use of this very effective digital marketing tool. Collect as many email addresses as possible. Make use of the website, and give out chances for the visitors to give their email ids. Tell them to sign up for newsletters, offer them freebies, etc. to take their email ids.

Now using these emails ids, one can reach out to the fans more effectively. Create emailers that can attract the reader’s attention almost immediately. Through these emailers inform the fans and subscribers about new events, gigs, concerts, albums, etc.

Promotional gifts

Another very effective marketing strategy that is been used for years now; is promotional gifts. Get some promotional gifts created for the audience. These can be anything like drinkware, pens, t-shirts, caps, etc. add the music bands or the albums name and logo on it.

One can distribute these gifts to the fans in the audience. This can help in promoting the band to the larger crowd. Also, who does not like gifts! At times, these gifts make the fans connect to the band on a more personal level.

Start blogging

Blogging has time and again proved to be a very effective way to make some loyal fans and followers of a brand. Therefore, every new and bidding need to invest in a good blog of theirs.

An informative blog is very helpful because it shows that musicians have a huge knowledge of the field. This makes the visitors more intrigued by the band and their music. One can use the blog to post reviews, news, and happening of the music industry, some basic info about the music world, etc.

Get a publicist

Sometimes working alone may not be enough and one might require help from a professional. This is where it can be quite helpful to hire a publicist. They will help in bringing the music brand the kind of attention they deem fit.

They will help with press releases, in getting into print media, get interviews, and get more popular venues for live gigs.

Collab with other music businesses

One of the very popular ways to tap the larger audience base and get noticed is by working with other music businesses. Make the marketing more prolific by reaching out to other businesses like radios, DJs, Music websites, and other musicians.

As these businesses tend to have a larger fan base, it can be a great opportunity for one to increase their fan base.

Albums covers, posters and flyers

Well, many tend to only keep their efforts in marketing to digital media. But, many are not on social media or are not very hands-on with the internet. But, the latter group is also a potential fan base, and it is important not to ignore them.

Work with some designers and get catchy posters to be put up on various parts of the city. Distribute flyers as well, as one may not know when they catch a curious follower. Also, if one is planning to release their CD’s then it better to give it an attractive and catchy album cover. This will attract shoppers’ attention at the store.

Final words

Being a musician is not easy these days. One needs to start working on their marketing strategies from the very start. This will give them a boost in the market, and, will help in reaching out to the audience much faster and is a more organic way. The marketing strategy should be a good mix of digital media, print media, live gigs, and lots of thoughtfulness.
