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…)
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…)
It’s hard to believe that this post is nearly a year old and is still my most popular post! Seeing as we have a range of bomber jackets this Spring/Summer, I decided I would update this post. My inspiration still comes from last year’s MTV Movie Awards. Bomber Jackets and Sneakers were the main menswear talking points. We saw Miles Teller and Zac Efron rocking the Bomber looking both cool and casual at the awards.
Seeing how versatile this jacket is, I decided to browse online and pick my favourites from the High Street.
This pink bomber jacket from River Island is perfect for this time of year. I love the detail, it gives off a nice biker feel to it. The colour is also great for Spring/Summer so it’s perfect for a night on the town. I would pair this with a white polo shirt and dark wash slim fit denim. Add a pair of navy desert boots to smarten up the look.
This beauty was my top pick from the recent Boohoo press day. I purchased it within days of seeing it. I wore this on a recent night out and teamed it with a navy t-shirt, burgundy chinos and a pair of trainers I picked up in Primark recently. I felt that the combination worked well and I know that the jacket can also be used for a smarter look.
This Navy number from Burton is more on the smarter side of things. I would pair this with a white shirt and navy tailored trousers. I would add some black Chelsea boots to finish it off.
This satin Bomber from Mango would be a great addition to any stylish man’s wardrobe. The colour just makes it so versatile. Just think about it, you can dress like Ryan Gosling from Drive for just €89.95! This would be a timeless piece that will be used again and again.
This one from Bershka is a real bargain at €35.99. As in the picture, I would pair it would wear it with a check shirt and jeans because of the casual nature of the jacket. Also, another major plus point is that black doesn’t go out of fashion, so it will be a piece that will last season after season!
I really love this one from Topman. I won’t lie it was the Teal colour that immediately drew me to it. It really stands out! So I would recommend this as one of your statement pieces for the upcoming season.
Finally, we have this tan faux suede Bomber from Pull and Bear. I really liked it when I saw it recently and I’m really sorry I left it behind. It is also a bargain at €40. I really hope it is still there next time I pop in. http://www.pullandbear.com/ie/en/suede-effect-bomber-jacket-c0p100036938.html
Penneys also have a great range of bomber jackets this spring/summer.
It is considered their IT jacket for this season, make sure and check out Primark.ie to check when they are available and are priced between €18 and €28. Would it be wrong not to buy one for that price? Wouldn’t it? Of course, it would! I expect these to fly off the shelves so act fast!
I really hope you enjoyed the post and that you pick yourself up a bargain or two!
