What to wear with purple – Lookbook Inspiration

Purple is quite a diverse colour, and depending on the shade you go for will depend on what you want to team it with. Using a contrasting colour is a great idea, and you can even contrast differing purples to create a simple but stylish look. The deep purple shirt will go well with the lighter purple knit, a light grey knit will work for a toned down look but still keep the colour. Black and white are of course the obvious choice when wanting to pair something with a colour, but yellows or greens will also work with purple; Using bright bold colours is not a complete no-no, but this will create a more striking look. For something more toned down, use a combination of pastel colours with bold to complement your outfit.

Here is some inspiration for you.

Christmas Jumpers For 2013 Festivities Part 1

Tuesday, 29th October, 2013

Christmas is coming round fast, and if there is one thing you need to get yourself it’s a Christmas jumper. Join in the festive spirit and add some Christmas cheer to your wardrobe with a jumper to keep you warm this winter. They are considered by some to be a bit tacky, cheap or novelty, but there is so much fashion or fun you can have with your knitwear this year. You have to be quick, because once they are gone, they are usually gone! Don’t hesitate in getting your favourite jumper for this season.

Here are a few of my early favourites, part 1 of some Christmas jumpers, from some expensive designer brands, to more cheaper high street labels which still look great to wear on your Christmas party or night out.






Got Some New T-Shirts From France Today

Tuesday, 20th August, 2013

Hey blog 🙂

I like getting new brands, and I like streetwear, but one of the bad things is that lots of brands and labels are done to death in the UK. Streetwear is popular and only getting more and more popular, with brands like Stussy, Sinstar, Supreme and so on. Ice Cream and Billionaire Boys Club is now being sold everywhere, and Evisu is not what it once was. So where does that leave you if you want something cool but original?

There are a huge number of independent small labels for one, another is to shop for cool clothing in unusual places. I have been listening to lots of French Hip Hop, people like Soprano and Youssoupha and have been trying to get my hands on a Youssoupha tee for a while. I found a French store selling them who delivered to the UK so I bought one, and another t-shirt from a label called The New Designers.

The Youssoupha design is cool and is now quite old, but was not easily available back when the song “On Se Connait was released. I have been waiting to get this so I am happy I eventually got it 😀

The New Designers shirt features really soft to touch cotton, and has a couple of great details. First the sleeves are leopard, but not just print, these has a faux fur feel to it, and have been stitched to the t-shirt which adds an individual look.

It also comes with a zip to the side of the shirt, something I have actually seen before on some independent streetwear labels, but never bought one. It seems to have been finished well, and is a clean design with no huge print or logos.

All the way from France 😀


Rust Red Denim Jacket From !Solid

Saturday, 13th April, 2013

solid-rust-denim-jacket1

I have had my eye on this jacket for a while, and decided I would get it for this summer/spring. I like different colours and styles for the spring and summer, and this is a nice colour for this season, which will go well with a number of things.

Last year I bought a light grey wash denim jacket from All Saints, and I like that very much. It is good quality and build, and will last a long time. This has the same feel, and is a short cropped style with chunky buttons which just feel like great quality. The brand is called !Solid, and is a contemporary brand from Denmark.

They do this in a bright blue colour too, which looks really nice, but I wanted something different for my wardrobe, and a smart style jacket in this colour is certainly not something I have had in my wardrobe.

It can be combined with a large number of coloured shirts or tees, depending on the look you are going for. If you prefer to keep it toned down then wear it with a pale blue, white or black colour, which will make this kind of jacket a bit more understated.

Men’s Fashion Trends: Dip Dye & Tie Dye For Summer 2013

Friday, 22nd February, 2013

tiedye-dipdye2

It’s not the 60s any more, but the colour from back in the day are back for Spring Summer 2013 in the form of tie dye and dip dye fashion. A few months ago I brought you the dip dye Billionaire Boys Club jeans, they look amazing and are something distinctive and different. If you want something a little different to the standard dark and light denim, they are definitely the thing to get.

Bright coluors have been the key to recent fashion trends, we have seen the Top Man Generations showcasing bright oranges, Hugo by BOSS and light pastal colours in it’s Spring 2013 campaign and others.

I really love the dip dye, and the effect it produces. When it’s done right and done with great colours, it gives amazing results with looks that will turn heads. If you are looking to add something dynamic to your wardrobe this would make a great addition.

  1. Red & white dip dye t-shirt by Worn By, with printed pattern throughout the tee. £32 at ASOS
  2. Blues to white dip dye t-shirt from United Colours Of Benetton. £23
  3. Blues and white dip dye jumper from Gant. This is such a beautiful piece, probably my favourite from this little selection. £100
  4. Dip Dye hoodie by ASOS. Blue to green colour, not the greatest colours to blend, but does not look too bad. £28
  5. Indigo tie dye shirt from TopMan. Oversized fit, £34
  6. Hype tie dye socks. Yes! Even socks have got the tie dye treatment. Hype logo from TopMan. £10/pair
  7. Billionaire Boys Club dip dye denim. Look amazing and be different with these. £215 each

Chinos – Add Some Colour To Your Summer

Wednesday, 30th March, 2011

What do you think of the trend which is colourful chinos? I like them lots, but I feel you have to be a very confidant and fashion forward kind of person. They are quite striking, and do stand out, which can be a good thing if you want to stand out from the rest.

I do like them, but only certain colours. I myself bought some green ones similar to the above, but they did not fit so I had to send them back. I may get some more, and if I do I will get green or red ones, or maybe both. I do like them for the summer, they can look good as long as you match them with the right colour shirt, polo or t-shirt and footwear, and you will be fine.

You can also add a belt like in the pictures above which set them off nicely.

It’s important to note the difference between chinos and khakis. What we call chinos are made from a lighter weight of cotton, whereas the khaki is a heavy cotton twill. Chinos can be thought of as a more smart casual choice, with khakis being more workwear type of pants.

I do think a pair of these would be a good addition to any summer wardrobe. Pick a colour you will like, and wear them on the right occasion and you will look good in them.

The first picture are all Ralph Lauren chinos. The 2nd collection of pictures are Acne


Cricket Jumpers In Fashion

Thursday, 17th March, 2011

What do you think of the cricket jumper fashion trend? I actually like it. I have seen the odd person on websites wearing such jumpers and I think they look really cool. Its a trend which seems to be unisex, with both men and women taking on this trend to wear what some will see as an uncool wooly jumper which is the Cricket jumper.

UPDATE – Check out Men’s Cricket Jumpers Fashion Trends For 2015

Here are some I have picked out which I like:

The big brands have taken up this trend, above we see J. Lindeberg and Ralph Lauren, who both make some really nice things.

  1. Ralph Lauren Long Sleeve Jumper £300
  2. Ralph Lauren Cricket Vest £170
  3. J. Lindeberg Cricket Jumper £160

As mentioned above, women have also picked up this trend, and there are lots on offer from the high street including

  1. Phillipa 2 tone Cricket Jumper £20.99
  2. SoulCal Cricket Jumper £29.99
  3. Striped Cricket Jumper by New Look £19.99

These of course will not be to everyone’s taste. I do think they look really good for a man or woman, I like the V neck detail, aswell as them looking very warm. Men could wear this with a shirt as above and look stylish and sophisticated in one.

What do you think of “Cricket Fashion”?


Man Bags Going Mainstream In 2011

Tuesday, 1st March, 2011

Messenger bags, shoulder bags, dispatch bags, satchels…When these are in a mans possession they are commonly called the Man Bag. In the past these have been seen as a very feminine item, only bought by a certain type of people, including male fashionistas. Now, however, times are changing. It is now acceptable to carry a man bag, many men are now buying them, and the high street and high-end fashion labels have recognised the trend, by offering a wider selection of bags for men.

Why are they now more acceptable? The answer is the modern man now likes to carry more things, aswell as being fashionable. We can now do that. What might the modern man carry?

One of the biggest reasons why men are now using fashionable bags is because of technology. Tablet devices such as the iPad are fashionable, you need something to carry it in. The rise of laptops and netbooks also has a part to play. The young professional male who takes his iPad to work doesnt want to carry it in a cheap plastic bag, he needs something more durable and stylish, and have enough room for other things. The man bag enables us to carry around things which we wouldnt normally because we couldnt, e.g. a Laptop or iPad.

Now we see why girls like bags so much. They arent just practical, in the hands of a man they are the Swiss Army Knift of accessories.

Here are some of what is on offer, these are my picks of what the fashionable male can carry around.

Here are my picks of man bags. A selection from Diesel, Paul Smith, Ted Baker, Dolce And Gabbana and if you want to spend a small fortune, Louis Vuitton.
