Get acquainted with this falls Classic Coat Trend

 

Hey! guys so here’s what’s new lately on my thoughts for Men’s Winter Coat Trends this Fall. Just recently, I recall  seeing  Vogue doing an Interview with Actress Alicia Silverstone who gives insight to her iconic yellow plaid outfit in the Cult teen Movie Clueless explaining how it holds a significance in popular culture and the plaid trend that dominate the catwalk ‘keeps coming back in style”. Believe it or not the orginal twin set plaid outfit worn by Alicia in the movie was Dolce & Gabanna chosen by Costume Designer Mona May and Film Director Amy Heckerling.

To this day, the fascination with plaid has stuck with me ever since and so it will always hold a special place in my heart forever as it’s such an iconic piece in popular culture that even Versace dedicated a whole collection to pay homage to plaid.

 

For those of you wondering what is ‘Blackwatch Tartan’, and where does it originate from? Infact you’d be astonished to find out that it is associated with the British Infantry Regiment that has roots dating back to 1715 born after the first Jacobite Rebellion.

Interestingly enough The Blackwatch is now part of the Royal Regiment of Scotland founded in July 1881 by Royal Colonel: HRH The Duke of Rothesay is quite special don’t you think? It’s interesting what you can actually find out about the origins of clothing throughout history and society.

 

“Black Watch Tartan A Cult Classic Heritage Trend” 

I first realised seeing this style of coat worn during the House of Holland Show by former Fashion Editor of Teen Vogue Phillipe Picardi but managed to find an alternative close enough to the trend at ZARA MAN which is my number 1 go to for trend pieces and find similar styles from the runway from season to season here.

You can’t go wrong with Zara when it comes to trend pieces just because they are so on point and the quality you find here is great which you can guarantee that’s reflected in the brands premium price point.

This is what I love about the high street because you can emulate designer looks and I do love to mix less expensive trend pieces with designer pieces at times to create individual looks of my own. Personal style and taste is always something that has stuck with me rather than lavishly following trends and let’s face it who even has the money to splash on new clothes all the time right.

Sometimes even my most favourite statement pieces have been found in the SALE and desire to wear them out as much as I can is limited even during a lockdown because we all have our favourites.

By Posted on 0 Comments Location: 2 min read 852 views

 Oui je t’aime Pari, a Bonjour from me in Paris for Couture Fashion Week, it’s my first time during the shows in the city so excited to see how it compares to London. It’s all about the morning cuisine and nothing does it better than starting your day with fancy coffee and croissants and who can forget the fois gras so you feel right at home in Paris. The last time I was here it was for a Christmas shopping trip for a long weekend break, but this time Fashion Week is a real treat for me.

 

DAY 1

I have arrived yesterday in Paris ready for the Rani Zakhem Couture show today! The plane journey from London Gatwick to Charles de Gaulle Airport was a short flight and you know Paris was even more beautiful once you get there, If you ever get to visit in Summer, there is so much culture to immerse yourself in the Parisian Chic vibes of this cosmopolitan city. All dressed up in a smart casual outfit I made my way to the shows of Paris Couture Fashion Week with an UBERX Luxury Car.

STYLING THE SEERSUCKER CLASSIC SPORT BLAZER | A DAY OUT AT THE VARSITY POLO MATCH

WHAT TO WEAR TO A POLO MATCH THIS SUMMER - INSPIRATION FOR STYLING THE CLASSIC SEERSUCKER BLAZER

Imagine a Summer of Sartorial Style and being pitch side on the lawn enjoying a pitcher of Pimms with friends – a British Summer Sporting Event wouldn’t be the same without experiencing the thrill of a live Polo Match to say the least. I reminisce about one of my favourite days out to watch a game at Guards Polo Club in Windsor for the Ivy League Jack Wills Varsity Polo Tournaments to see Oxford vs Cambridge……

One of my favourite summer outfits featuring the Classic Seersucker Sport Coat. Summer is the ideal season for watching the polo and the feeling of being outdoors pre- Covid 19 times. This Blazer is one of my favourite summer staples to relax in, great for a day out to watch the polo or club house party. Since my past experience as a polo goal judge, back in my college days, I’ve become quite fascinated with learning the rules of the game where Pimms, Picnics on the lawn and Argentine style BBQ are enjoyed by spectators in a relaxed setting, the divot stomping in between polo chukka’s and immerse yourself in the spirit of polo.

With Pastels associated as a summer classic colour palette, the seersucker blazer or two piece is trending this summer sporting season, so let’s make the most of this summer trend with temperatures set to soar, the classic seersucker let’s you keep cool in a breathable fabric made for summerWhat to wear to the poloWhat to wear to the polo

WEEKEND STYLE DIARY: LEARNING TO APPRECIATE HARRIS TWEED JACKET’S – A TIMELESS VINTAGE CLASSIC

How to Wear Tweed Jackets this Spring - A Reason to love Vintage Clothing

By Posted on 0 Comments Location: 2 min read 675 views

Ways to Wear Tweed Jackets this spring and Casual Separates. Looking for inspiration this weekend so what better way to pass the time like rummage through my closet for something suitable to wear as I packed for the weekend in the home countie. A visit to the country sounds ideal and who knows with this weather we might be lucky. And so, as it happens I found an interesting vintage piece blazer I forgot I never had so I thought it would be great to revive an old time classic favourite tweed. It’s fine cloth is made in England by Harris Tweed by the way and I love so much as we are yet to transition from spring into summer. Well, that’s until the weather improves to say the least as I can’t wait til it gets warms again and we can enjoy the new season.

What I wore: Products Featured were Hat by Hat Attack Collaboration for DKNY, Sunglasses Prada, Vintage Tweed Blazer Urban Outfitters London, Casual Seperates by H & M long sleeve crew neck burgundy tee, Topman Denim Black skinny jeans, ASOS Beige Desert Boots, DKNY Black Felt Parachute Backpack

A great statement piece such as a blazer can make all the difference to dress up a casual weekend look worn with a long-sleeve crew neck t-shirt and a pair of skinny denim jeans. My favourite accessories are firstly sunglasses as they give it that edge and the right hat too in this instance it’s a pork pie hat keeps the look retro. Lastly, to finish off the look a parachute bag accessory like this one I’m wearing is modern and minimalist keeps the overall look contemporary

Hey! Guys I’m just reminding you its Awards Season with Fashion Week just around the corner I bet you’re really excited just as I am to attend any of the private events which are often very exclusive by invitation only. I’ve just returned recently from a long weekend in Italy to attend Men’s Fashion Week in Milan so it feels great to be back and catch up on the latest. Let’s begin with everyone’s favourite topic who’s wearing what to the EE Rising Star Bafta Award’s 2020 and which event’s are happening before the Awards Night this weekend.

Various Lifestyle Brand’s were also known to have hosted their own private soirees such as Chanel, Atelier Swarovski, Dunhill London and more. Most, importantly what did I get up to Pre-Bafta Awards About Town this Week as I had the pleasure of attending an Exclusive invitation with Perrier Jouet Champagne x Don’t Die Wondering at Ella Canta Park Lane.

But, before telling you about what I wore to the event I just thought I’d mention that Don’t Die Wondering is an exclusive member’s club for high net worths and influencers in the luxury, music, film, art and fashion industries.

The exclusive service is available by application only and includes the crème de la crème of Hollywood A-list, industry veterans and highly acclaimed influencers as member’s. Lucky for me I got insider access to experience it firsthand and had the most wonderful time as it was my first Pre-Bafta bash this season as a style insider and I’m sure it won’t be my last the perks of being an influencer certainly has it’s advantages.

Especially when attending event’s what you wear on the Red Carpet is crucial to expressing your own style and confidence but sometimes you’re often found with a challenge with what options to wear. So, here’s my opinion on Menswear Style Pre-Bafta Style vs the Actual Awards night.

Firstly, Black Tie does not have to mean a full tuxedo and bow tie, that’s for Awards night, but for a Pre-Bafta Dinner for instance Chanel some male Celebrities wore a classic white dress shirt and black neck tie which has been seen spotted on George Clooney, Jude Law etc looks more relaxed but still sartorially sharp and edgy vs traditional black tie. That’s what kind of look I went for during the other night in a Polo Ralph Lauren White Dress Shirt, Black Silk Gucci Neck tie, formal Blazer and non matching skinny trousers by Zara Man and Shoes H&M. Sometimes a bit of contrast in your evening attire can make things looks overall flawless. Let me know your thoughts on this look.
