Get the Look: Lewis Hamilton

Hi guys!

I recently posted this picture of Lewis Hamilton at an IWC launch recently.

I thought it was a great smart casual look. The tan shawl jumper is a real trans seasonal piece and the colour is an all year round wardrobe staple. Here are some pieces that will help you achieve this look in two different ways. I based the outfit around the Jumper as it was the stand out piece for me in the outfit. In look 1 I copied  what Lewis wore and teamed it with a white shirt, I added a pair of slim fit dark wash jeans and Chelsea boots from RIver Island to complete the look. For look 2 I changed it to a cardigan and added a navy shirt and chinos with a pair of chocolate brown desert boots to make it more casual.

Well guys I hope this helps you! Happy shopping and feel free to leave feedback if you liked or didn’t like anything.

Style Icon: David Beckham

Hi Guys

This will be the first of many posts featuring people who I consider style icons and who have an influence on my style and how I dress. First up is David Beckham, he was the first major influence for me to make me interested in fashion and being a big sports fan it was an easy person to start with. While he is now a style icon of his own accord nowadays you have to give credit to his wife Victoria who set him on the right path to achieve this. While he has had a few fashion mishaps and lets be honest who hasn’t, he more often than not looks flawless in both casual and formal attire. He is also not the only designer in the Beckham household having brought out his own line of bodywear and swimwear with H&M and as expected was and still is highly successful to this day. He has also recently collaborated with Belstaff to bring out a collection of biker jackets. Here is a link to this collection http://www.belstaff.com/men/beckham-for-belstaff/

Here are a few of David’s finer fashion moments

One Republic Concert Style

Hi Guys

Sorry its been a while I’ve been really busy with work and a project I have been working on all will be revealed at a later date. Here is a picture from a One Republic Concert I went to recently with my girlfriend Sandra. The concert was amazing and I would really recommend that you go see them as they bring a lot of energy to their performances and Ryan Tedder is an amazing vocalist. The concert took place in the 3 Arena in Dublin. Here is my highlight from the concert One Republics version of Hozier’s Take me to Church. youtube user Avr1916 owns the rights to this video.

Seeing as I dont live in Dublin we stayed in the Spencer Hotel based in Dublin’s business and financial sector of the city. Its a very stylish boutique hotel and it is really reasonably priced for hotels in dublin given that there was a concert on that night. We ate in the East restaurant which is based in the Hotel and the food and drink was fantastic and again reasonably priced so all in all it was a winner and again highly recommended.

Now to fashion. The outfit I am wearing is as follows

Tweed Blazer: Burton

Shirt: Pop-Boutique Vintage Store

Jeans: River Island

Shoes: Topman

Pocket Square: Topman

Sandra’s Outfit

Blazer: Dunnes Stores

Top: Penneys/Primark

Jeans: River Island

Shoes: Penneys/Primark

Here is my outfit from the next day
