Men’s Fashion Tips – Winter Coat & Jacket Buying Guide

Canada Goose Jackets For Winter

UPDATED FOR 2017

Brrr it’s getting cold in ‘ere! Winter is here, or coming, depending on where in the world you live and when you’re reading this post 😉 One way or another you’ll be experiencing the depths of winter sometime soon, so you’ll need a winter coat or jacket to get you through a few horrible months of the miserable British winter weather.

Buying a good winter coat is not only important for the first year you purchase it, but it can become a good investment piece, lasting a good few winters before you need to splash out and buy another. With that said, investing in a good jacket is not only worth it because you’ll be getting much better quality which will be noticeable when you wear it, as well as it lasting longer than a cheap and cheerful coat.

Mens Fashion Trends: Hawaiian Shirts For The Summer

Featuring: , ,

Aloha!

What are your thought on Hawaiian shirts? Just a gimmick, or are these loud shirts actually stylish? I have to say that I am starting to like them, they are another item to have in your wardrobe that you can pull out every now and then to give yourself some individuality in a world where a lot of guys are wearing the same things this summer. If you’re looking for a men’s fashion trend which may not be your usual style, the Hawaiian shirt could be something to consider to make yourself stand out from the crowd.

Men’s Summer Fashion Tips – Sweat Shorts [UPDATED 2017]

mens-sweat-shorts-1

UPDATED FOR 2017

Sweatpants have been thought of for a long time as super casual, and of course they can be worn for a laid back and chilled out style. However more recently we’ve seen a resurgence in sport luxe fashion, with higher end menswear brands showcasing their take on the trends, with casual tops and bottoms including more stylish, better cut sweat pants and joggers. From that comes the summer trend of sweat shorts, and it’s something I really like and have embraced.

You may remember I got a few pair of sweat shorts from H&M a short while ago, and I really like them. At only £8 a pair you can’t go wrong, and they are good quality with a really nice fit. The summer season is here, and other fashion labels and brands have an array of sweat shorts ready for you to buy, in a range of colours and styles.

Budget University Style & Cheap Fashion Essentials For Guys 2016

Inspiration And Ideas For University Style For Guys

Going to University can be expensive, but fortunately your style does not have to be. You can get some really great basic and staple pieces ready to wear at university, even if you’re on a budget. Here I’ll go through some basic fashion essentials which you should be buying and wearing at uni or college.

University/College Student Budget Preparing – Only Buy What You Need

It’s really easy to go shopping for clothing and getting home having spent hundreds on pretty much the same style of types of items. You don’t need 5 pairs of the same jeans in the same wash, especially when you’re on a budget. You need to create a streamline wardrobe, a capsule wardrobe, with a variety of key pieces, rather than a lot of the same fashion.

Styling My Super Skinny ASOS Jeans

Featuring:

ASOS Super Skinny Jeans With Nautical T-shirt and Ugg Shoes

Hey guys!

OK first of all, I have a new hair colour…It’s darker brown! 😀 I love this colour, and haven’t dyed my hair in ages, but I’ve finally got round to it, a bit too late, it needs to be cut so I’ll end up having to dye it again. I used to buy Excell 10 which I really liked, number 4 “Natural dark brown” which was dark, but then they stopped selling it, so I had to switch to Nice n Easy, I tried their same colour but it didn’t seem to be as dark, so I’ve went darker to 3.5 and I love this colour, so I’ll be keeping it 🙂

A while back you’ll know I got a few things from ASOS, these jeans and some nautical tops. We’ve finally had some good weather, and will hopefully get some more going forward, so I was able to style these items this week and took a couple of shots.

How Skinny Are ASOS Super Skinny Jeans?

As I’ve already mentioned, I misread these jeans and thought they were just regular skinny fit, which I quite like, but then when they arrived I realised that they were actually super skinny. What’s the difference? Well the name tells no lies, they really are super skinny, they’re skin tight! 😀 The legs really are like drainpipes, clinging to your legs, but the waist is quite regular and the denim has some stretch in it, making them comfortable. The leg opening is tight too, luckily they are made from soft denim, so are comfortable to wear.

The jeans are ecru in colour which I really like for the Spring/Summer, and have really cool distressed patches which I really like. If you’re looking for advice on light colour or white denim, check out my white jeans guide for men.

The Outfit

I wore these jeans with another ASOS item, the navy nautical T Shirt. This came in a two pack with the other being a colour reverse of this one, a white base and navy stripes. I think colour blocking this darker top with the ecru jeans looks really nice. It’s finished off with my Ugg suede shoes in blue, these are the most comfortable shoes I’ve ever owned, I can’t quite believe they count as shoes and not the more comfortable trainers. I also wore my Ray Ban Aviators along with my D&G Watch.

Hopefully we’ll get lots of sun this year so we can all wear lots of summer fashion 😉

ASOS Jeans And Tops For March – Spring Fashion

Featuring:

My Spring Purchases from ASOS - Jeans And Tops

It feels like forever since I bought some clothing! 😉

I have been on a sort of spending/buying ban when it comes to clothing and fashion in recent times. I have so much, and I don’t need any clothes; From jackets to tees, jumpers to jeans, I have pretty much everything I could want or need, and a whole lot more on top of that. But this is fashion, and I guess there’s no such thing as too much, right? 😉

I saw these jeans from ASOS and I thought, they’re amazing! I need these! I have so many jeans, and I’ve experimented with colour quite a bit, incorporating white in my jeans as well as other colours, it really changes up an outfit from my usual black or indigo jean options. I love both of these of course, but it’s always a good idea to experiment a lot. I now have 3 or 4 pair of white jeans, which is a bit of a style don’t, if you’re building something like a capsule wardrobe, there’s no need for so many of the same item (more on that in a bit).

These jeans however, are very different. First of all the fit is a super skinny fit; I will confess…I liked the jeans so much I sort of missed the “super” part of the title and just bought them. They don’t call these super skinny for nothing, they really are skin tight! I will post a proper review of these soon. I love the colour, they are ecru, these photos really don’t do the colour justice. They have distressed patches which sold the jeans for me, it’s something different which I don’t have in my wardrobe.

The tees…If you read my blog last year you’ll know I love nautical trends, and I bought an H&M white nautical tee, as well as a Jaeger navy nautical T-shirt. There’s no need to double up on this style, but I saw these and had to get them. The ASOS tees come in a 2-pack, and for £14.99 you can’t pass on them. I’ve got a few ASOS tees and they’re pretty good quality, definitely good for the money. A good fit, nice feel and horizontal stripes for Spring/Summer, I really love this trend.

Keep a look out on the blog, I’ll be styling these up soon 🙂 If you’re looking for some inspiration on what’s good this season, make sure you’ve read the fashion trends, which goes into further detail.

What do you think of these? Do you have any trends you’re looking forward to exploring this season?
