Whether your a leopard print fiend, a semi-goth or just like a particular colour in your wardrobe it doesn’t matter. You can easily and simply begin to work this style into your daily life.

    So, with that in mind, here are the best ways that you can work your daily fashion into the home around you:

    Know Your Colour Scheme

    First things first; colour.

    Colour is such a strong expression of your personality, it can’t be ignored when you are looking to match your fashion and home design sense together. The fact is that if you pick a colour that is wrong for your personality, then it can often make you feel uneasy or even unsettled in your own home.

    On the whole, colour can be a truly transformative element in any home and as such is something you should consider carefully. Wrong or right, colour is powerful and you need to wield this power with utmost sincerity.

    Choose a Style That Suits

    One of the great things about home styling is the fact that there is often a style that suits you for the most part. Minimalistic? Then the Scandinavian school of design might fit you. A little bit different? Then eclectic will certainly find a good place in your home. It’s all a case of doing the right level of research and finding a style match that you will love. And the thing to remember about style is that a number of different styles may suit you, depending on the room. So, don’t be afraid to mix and match a little!

    Add a Touch of Personality

    Your personality is unique, there is no one else like you in the whole wide world for the most part. And for that reason, including this in your day to day home styling can actually be a great way to add something a little different and give it a ‘wow’ factor. Because, what’s more wowing than having a little bit of yourself on display for all to see?

    The best way to include your own personality into a room design is via accessories and art. Often, your personality best shines through a piece which inexplicably says ‘you’. Though you yourself might not even know why that might be.

    Choose the Furniture Wisely

    The power of designer furniture to completely transform a room cannot be denied. The fact is that whatever you choose, from designer sofas to interesting rugs, the way you dress a room can truly change the way you feel about it as a whole. So, making those designer furniture design choices can be the first in an important series of steps towards a more interesting and more you designed home.

    Streetwear Trends for Her

    Every year we see new trends come into play when it comes to streetwear style. It’s your most wearable clothing, the pieces from your wardrobe that are most likely to be selected as part of your daily outfit. So, because you’re wearing these items so regularly, it’s important that they’re always bang on trend. Here’s a look at some of the most popular streetwear trends for her this year:

    Everything Neon

    Neon is a fashion trend that doesn’t seem like it’s going anywhere anytime soon. Primarily worn at festivals and on summer holidays, neon green, pink and orange have become hugely popular when it comes to women’s style.

    The best way to wear this trend for your streetwear style is have a flash of the fluorescent and not make it a dominant colour – which can be tricky. Stick to neon as an accessory or wear neutral coloured clothing with your statement piece.

    Cycling Shorts

    Cycling shorts began trending last spring, but they’re still on trend for this year. Many designers like Chanel, Fendi and Acne included cycling shorts as part of their summer collections. This will undoubtedly trickle down into the high street shops where you’ll be able to grab a similar pair for a fraction of the price. Pair cycling shorts with an oversized hoodie and boots for a dressed-down look, or team with a silk blouse and heels for a classy outfit.

    Athleisure

    Athleisure is like the parent category for trends like cycling shorts, leggings and tracksuits. Athletic leisure wear has completely taken over street style, so it’s no wonder that it’s a must for this year too.

    The key to keeping this trend classy and sophisticated is to choose more luxurious fabrics like silk, cashmere or cotton and steer away from over-doing it with the brand logos.

    Head-to-toe Beige

    This soft, subtle trend is perfect for the summer months. All-beige outfits look expensive but are surprisingly easy to re-create with affordable brands. From girls designer dresses to flared trousers, gentle colours like oatmeal, biscuit and blush are all becoming increasingly popular (even for your daughter!). You should mix textures and silhouettes to keep it fresh and playful.

    Headbands

    Take your accessory style up a notch with some colourful, patterned headbands. Streetstyle doesn’t all need to be about athleisure and cool tracksuits, it can be fun and stylish, even when it comes down to your choice of accessory. Headbands aren’t just for kids anymore; adults can wear them seamlessly and sophisticatedly with the right outfit to match.

    Animal Print

    Animal print has been enjoying a revival of sorts after years of neglect. It seems now that everywhere you look women are wearing leopard print dresses or accessorising with zebra print handbags.

    What’s more, people have started to experiment with the style with tiger stripes and snake print taking over the streets in recent months. You can even team up two trends with neon animal print clothes, which have been making their way from the catwalk to high-street … Read More..

    Streetwear Trends for AW/19

    2019 is the year of streetwear. There are so many trends that come and go, but streetwear has gone from strength to strength. This clothing style is comfy, cool and really on-trend. Finding your style can be quite difficult but also really fun, it’s not about trying to copy anybody else but more about expressing who you are.

    The great thing about streetwear is that it means something different to everybody who wears it and it’s so easy to make something your own. Urban streetwear trends can be as simple or elaborate as you want to make them, so if you’re wondering where to start in AW17, we have some style tips that you may enjoy.

    Exaggerated/ Oversized

    Streetwear has been everywhere this Summer, especially on the festival scene and the Autumn and Winter seasons show no signs of it slowing down. As the seasons turn and the weather gets colder, jumper weather is around the corner. Streetwear style is all about exaggerated and oversized jumpers and hoodies with cool graphics and logos.

    The retro sportswear style is more about the retro brands like Fila, Nike, Adidas and loads more too. Shopping around in vintage shops is a great way to find that cool and retro look.

    Techwear

    The tech ware trend will come together full-scale this winter. Major streetwear brands are setting the trend with performance activated trousers, activewear tops and technical gilets to create a really cool and futuristic look for everyone to enjoy.

    Neon and tie-dye have become some of the most sought-after styles, so it’s great to have a better understanding of what you need to be looking for. Not only that, but camo prints will continue to dominate the streetwear scene this fall. These are great either on cargo trousers, fleeces or tees.

    Worn-out Sneakers

    Gucci shocked us all this summer with their dirty-look trainers. Love them or hate them, they have been everywhere this year. Streetwear brands have followed suit and the dirty, worn-out look will continue to be one of the biggest footwear styles for streetwear fashion into the future. Many mens urban clothing stores stock a huge range of worn-out and fresh-looking sneakers.

    Edgy Continues to Grow

    While clashing colours and miss-matched prints have become a huge part of streetwear fashion, edgy fashion is slowly taking over. Streetwear takes on a lot of forms, shapes and sizes as it continues to evolves and it’s certainly interesting to continue to watch this grow. Boxy, unfitted jeans, big-box cuts and big bold colours are dominating the mens streetwear clothing brands currently, but what’s to say that this will still be the case as the first snow falls!… Read More..

    The Rich Traditions Of Horse Race Fashion

    The tradition of dressing up for major horse races is steeped in history. If you’re familiar with the idea, you probably have a certain image in mind regarding what people tend to wear: extravagant hats, gaudy accessories, and fun-but-formal attire. Generally speaking, this is an accurate image. Yet you’ll find that from race to race and in different parts of the world, the traditions have evolved to suit different occasions. So here we’re looking at some of the big ones that demonstrate the delightfully fun scope of horse racing fashion.

    A Stately Affair at The Royal Ascot

    There’s a certain fanciness to horse racing culture, and the Royal Ascot takes it to another level. The spectacular Ascot Racecourse, with its beautiful grandstand and flat tracks, is actually open to races throughout the season, from May to October. But it’s in June that the Royal Ascot event takes place, attracting some of the most impressive horses in Europe and an audience that typically includes members of the British royal family (among other celebrities and fashion icons).

    To match the general grandeur of the event, the Royal Ascot has a formal dress code that is strictly enforced, with requirements and rules that mean turning people away if they don’t comply. This dress code varies somewhat from one seating area to the next, but generally, women are required to wear day dresses and hats (without showing bare shoulders or the midsection). The men have to have top hats and morning dress suits – which for those who aren’t familiar means three-piece ensembles complete with tails. People still tend to be very creative within these rules, and as you can imagine this produces sensational looks year in and year out.

    A Rousing Good Time at The Cheltenham Festival

    The Cheltenham Festival offers a bit more of a casual atmosphere, and with it some different twists on fashion. From can atmospheric perspective, the event really earns the name “festival.” Each day has a theme, there’s a Guinness-sponsored drinking pavilion on site, and many will take multiple days off of work to enjoy the four days of races. Additionally, while the UK’s free online betting options have made horse race wagering in general more accessible than ever before, Cheltenham seems to place a particular emphasis on the activity. This only adds to the general buzz of festivity, with spectators not just interested, but often invested in the races.

    As you might imagine, all of this leads to a slightly less formal take on horse race fashion. There isn’t a formal dress code, and some of the outfits you see wouldn’t be allowed at the Ascot. That’s not to say fashion isn’t an important component of the Cheltenham Festival though. The event’s “Ladies Day” is designated specifically for people to dress up a bit more, and above all else you’ll see some outerwear twists on general traditions. Given that these races take place every March in England, the weather can be a bit cold and wet, … Read More..
