Valentines day is upon us, which means you’re probably going to want to look your best, whether you’re going out on a date with a girl, you’re out with your girlfriend/wife, or you plan on going out with your friends on the usual night out, you’ll want to look sharp for this night of all nights. When the day or night comes, you’ll want to know what to wear, the best way is to prepare and make sure you have what you need, but what do you wear anyway!? Here’s some style tips to get you started.
If there’s one event of the year you’re going to get dressed up on, it’s probably going to be New Years Eve. Lots of people like to do various things, and if you’re heading for a party, then it could be the perfect time to look your best, and dress up for the occasion. It doesn’t always have to be that way, and will depend on what you’re actually doing, and where you plan on going for New Years Eve. What you wear may be the same time of style as what to wear for your Christmas Party, and not going to include your best Christmas jumpers, so looking the part is key. Here’s a few ideas to ensure you look the part for the night and getting your style right going into the New Year.
If you don’t own any cashmere you’ve probably heard of it, and you probably also associate as a soft and expensive wool, which it is. If you’re a regular reader of Michael 84 then you’ll know I love cashmere, I own a couple of cashmere jumpers and think they’re great. But here’s the question, Are cashmere jumpers, knits and other wooly fashion and wears, worth the high price tag?
Over the years I’ve loved my Christmas jumpers, and have quite the collection from my Christmas Jumpers 2015 and 2014, and this year will be no different. It seems there’s more and more jumpers on sale, from the absolute novelty to the verging on stylish, there’s a pattern or design for you. The ultimate in cheesy Christmas themed knits, or something a bit more toned down with a seasonal fair isle sweater.
Christmas Jumper Day 2016
Christmas Jumper Day is Friday 16th December this year, where you can not only wear a brilliant novelty jumper, but also you can donate to Save The Children if you want to show your support to the charity.
There’s plenty to choose from, here are my favourites from different brands and shops; From budget to premium, there’s one for everyone 🙂
Party season is upon us, and there’s no doubt that you’ll be going to an office party or two over the festive period. Dressing the part and knowing what to wear can sometimes be a tricky issue, should you go super formal or super casual, or somewhere in-between? Here’s some tips and advice along with some inspiration to get you going on deciding what to wear at your office party.
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.
My winter coat and jacket collection has grown over the past few years, and I have quite a few of the bases covered with quite the selection, including my Pull and Bear Parka, Barbour Chelsea Quilted Jacket, Adrian Hammond padded jacket and of course the daddy of them all, my Canada Goose.
The Canada Goose Is Hands Down The Best – Buy One!
I would love to advise you to go out and spend near £600 on a Canada Goose jacket, but things are not that simple. In my opinion if you need a coat for a harsh winter there is simply no better than a Canada Goose. I got a Chilliwack Parka a few years ago, and it was a godsend for 2 bad winters we had. It does come with a few problems in the UK though. For example, last winter was so mild I never actually wore it! They are amazing for harsh weather, and if it’s freezing cold, if there’s wind chill, or if it’s snowing, then wearing one will keep you toasty. However if it’s a mild winter and not really sub-zero temperatures, you’ll literally be sweating in one; They are not really designed for mildly-cold winters. There’s the price too, at around £600 it is rather expensive.
So what are the other bits of fashion advice when looking to buy a winter coat this year? Well there are a few options, and I will go into the different styles of jackets which are available at the moment.
Autumn is here and Winter is here, so that can only mean layering and getting some knitwear and jumpers for the upcoming season. I love knitwear and jumpers, there is a huge variety of styles, colours, patterns and fabrics to buy, and you can create a great deal of different looks, depending on the style you would like to go for. I will showcase 10 of the biggest brands and fashion labels, from the more modest and budget friendly end of the high street, to some higher end brands and fabrics. You’ll find some advice and tips on what to look out for when choosing your knits for this autumn and winter.
