The Sneaker Shortlist from Farfetch

Hi Guys!

I hope you had a nice bank holiday weekend! Im usually showing you guys how to get the look for less on the high street, but don’t we all deserve a bit of luxury every once in a while? Of course we do! I was recently asked by Farfetch, a luxury digital fashion company to share this infographic from a recent editorial piece on their website.

The infographic as you guess is called The Sneaker Shortlist. I was excited to share this as I have always been a fan of sneakers even before I became interested in fashion. (more…)

MLB Sports Luxe Look with Fanatics

Hi Guys

I was recently approached by an American website called Fanatics to style a Sports Luxe look using one of the Major League Baseball caps featured on their website. I was happy to accept  for two reasons, one I love trying out new ideas for my blog and two I have always thought Sports Luxe would be a tricky look for me to style but I like a challenge!

Off I went in search of inspiration from magazines and the internet to see if I could find suitable pieces.I wanted to look for pieces that I would wear but would also be ideal for this look. First off I had to pick my Baseball cap to use for the look. I chose this Chicago Cubs Grey and Blue snapback cap. Even though I am more of an NFL fan I chose the Chicago Cubs cap because my sister Danielle spent a summer in Chicago. I also have many relations over there also making it a personal reason why I chose them.

So now that I have the cap picked, lets move on to the rest of the outfit. While getting inspiration I noticed that bomber jackets and fitted joggers were major players in this trend so I found these two perfect pieces.

I have already mentioned the bomber jacket from boohoo.com in a previous post as my pick of the preview that I attended. So I thought it was fitting to have it in the outfit. Its colour and texture make it a must have.

The Navy skinny joggers accompany this outfit perfectly and I feel the colours really compliment each other. The joggers give the outfit a nice tailored look

. I decided to put this White baseball polo shirt from River Island underneath the bomber jacket. I like the overall look of the polo shirt and the style was just fitting for the task in hand.

Finally to the footwear I have always been a big fan of Converse so these break point trainers were the perfect pair to add the finishing touches to my Sports Luxe outfit. I just thought the colour worked well with the look and complimented the rest of the pieces.

Hope you guys enjoyed the post and please provide feedback of the sports luxe look! To shop for a baseball cap like the one featured go to the baseball hat page on fanatics website.

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.
