Winter Warmers

Having just been paid a visit by hurricane Ophelia, it definitely was a sign that winter is coming (sorry, not sorry for the Game of Thrones pun). What I love about winter is that I get the chance to break out the cosy jumpers and the warm winter jackets that help you keep warm, but look good at the same time. (more…)

Let them be Green with envy!

Hi guys!

As we all know trends come and go, but I want to talk to you about making the rest of the fashion pack green with envy! I have always been a fan of the colour Green. The many different shades of green make it a perfect colour to have all year round, but lets concentrate on Spring/Summer. The versatility of the colour makes it so easy to co-ordinate with base colours such as white, navy and grey. This seasons high street is full of many different shades of green and I am going to bring you my top menswear picks from the wide variety of stores available at Athlone Town Centre this season. There are some great menswear stores in Athlone Town Centre to help you keep your look on trend! All of these items can be worn in a casual manner or can also be smartened up to take you from day to-night. (more…)

Get the Look: Idris Elba

Hi Guys,

We are always told if you feel inspired, strike while the iron is hot!! Well this post couldn’t be more true to that saying. I was scrolling through GQ’s most stylish men of the week section this afternoon when I came across this picture of Idris Elba.

I have always been a big fan of Idris’s style as he tends to look good whether he is suited and booted or running down to the corner shop for a pint of milk. In the picture shown he is attending the Mandela, My Dad and Me premiere.

I really love the nautical pieces in this outfit. The breton stripe jumper is a wardrobe staple and can be paired with almost anything. Its perfect for summer as it is great paired with chinos or shorts for a nice summer time look that is both smart and casual. Pair this with a white t-shirt or polo shirt underneath to keep it smart and simple.This breton beauty from Topman is priced at £32.

According to the River Island website this trench coat is a MUST HAVE! I couldn’t agree more as once again is a classic piece that goes with almost anything and can smarten up the most casual of outfits! The navy colour is very versatile and can be paired with most colours. The coat retails at €95.

Yet again Idris ticks another wardrobe stable box with the tailored black trousers. As mentioned earlier this can be paired with almost anything, making it very versatile. I have always been a fan of trousers from Next. They are always very affordable and of fantastic quality. This pair for €31 are very affordable and wont make a huge hole in your wallet.

Finally we reach the final piece of the jigsaw. These Black leather trainers from Topman are almost identical to the pair Idris is wearing at the premiere. Again these wont put a huge dent in your bank account £45 and are very on point. They add a nice finishing touch to this smart casual outfit.
