Blokes summer fashion can go a few different ways. The first option; he’s totally fine and you don’t need to pester him – sweet. Secondly, he’s sorted on the fashion front but might need persuading to try something new – fine. Lastly, he thinks summer is 100% Hawaiian shirts and pasty shins – we have a problem. If your guy needs a little assistance in the summer style department, you’ve come to the right place because I’ve teamed up with menswear specialists Jacamo to bring you this post! Here are 5 ways to take him from crazy shirt guy to all out Insta star. Well, maybe not 100% Insta-star but every little helps, right?
Wedding season is upon us. From April to September there will no doubt be some weddings happening in your family or friendship group so it’s time to start planning those outfits. Here’s five style picks to make sure you’re the best-dressed couple at the reception!
1. The Jumpsuit
I’m obsessed with jumpsuits, they’re my go-to for any occasion as I think they’re a bit different! I usually don’t feel very comfortable in dresses, I feel too dressed up so jumpsuits are a winner for me. I love the print and the shape of this Whistles Lilias Jungle print jumpsuit. It’d look great with wedges or neutral barely-there sandals so you can adapt your shoe choice according to the terrain (i.e is there grass?!) at the event you’re attending.
V-Day is coming and if you fancy spending some pennies on your better half I’ve got a few ideas for gifts. I know some people spend a lot at Valentine’s Day and some like to just give a token gift so there’s a range of prices in this gift guide! At the lower end of the price spectrum are some grooming bits, the Dapper Dan Matt Clay and Uppercut Deluxe Quiff Brush make a great gift together as well as separate pieces if your guy’s into his grooming. Pop them into a cool wash bag for a home-made gift set feel, I like this monochrome Herschel Supply Co Wash Bag which is available from ASOS.
Staying sharp and stylish takes a lot of effort. Putting together the right outfit every day requires thought to step out looking great, no matter where you’re going. But if you want to look good, sometimes you have to forget about clothes and accessories and go back to basics. Caring for your body is essential if you want to look and feel good every day. From looking after your skin to working out, I believe it’s important to stay healthy and not just to care about fashion. So here are my top tips for living healthier to improve your appearance.
Unless you’ve been living under a fashion-related rock you would have noticed the huge surge in trainers becoming a staple part of street style wear for both girls and guys. You can’t turn a corner in a city centre without seeing a pair of New Balance! It amazes me how some trends really take off and I love watching them spread, it’s crazy! I mean, a year ago would we all have been wearing Adidas Originals Stan Smiths or Nike Air Max Thea or slip on Vans? Probs not, just saying. I’m obsessed with this trend, I’ve always been a bit of a trainer head anyway because I just love the comfort – it’s something that just can’t be beaten. But now I can totally embrace my love of all things sneakers because it’s totally on trend. Bonus.
Christmas is creeping up and it’s time to get saving to treat the one you love. Aww! This is a luxury gift guide, with two stocking fillers thrown in. The most expensive item in this gift guide is the Oris BC3 Advanced Day Date from Market Cross Oris Watches. I think it’s a stunning piece and obviously a huge investment but it’s so pretty. Maybe one day I’ll be able to buy this kind of watch for Luke! Something a little bit more down to earth (but only just!) is the brown leather Vivienne Westwood Backpack, it is dreamy! Further down the affordable line is the Whistles Printed Sweatshirt which I love. The camo print is really cool but it’s a little different because of the colour way. Two lovely little stocking fillers are the Tartan Scarf which is available from ASOS for under £20! I also love these cheeky Pug Socks from Topman! What do you think?
June 15th is Father’s Day just in case you’ve forgotten, it’s tomorrow! I’ve put together a last minute gift guide for you showcasing a few great fragrances that you can pick up for your dad.
I noticed the other day that Boots have some great fragrance offers on so I’ve made this post about fragrance and aftershave. This Davidoff one is only £19.99 down from about £40 I think so it’s half price and smells lovely, it’s quite a sophisticated scent, so perfect so smart daddies. They also have a fab offer on Lacoste Red, 75ml for £24.99, which is a really good deal too.
