August 7, 2013

FKA Twigs. Strange name. Great sound. Post-dubstep (take the good things about dubstep, turn the volume down, slow or eliminate the “whoomp,” tell the boys to sit down and unclinch their fists and add lyrics with beauty).

She’s on the label Young Turks, (which is a name referring to a Turkish national reform party, but morphed into meaning a young person with new ideas and history lesson, history lesson, history lesson etc.) home to The XX, SBTRKT and other forwarding-thinking artists.

Chinese fashion model Liu Wen obviously has enviable off-duty style but what we’re really digging about her, is her choice of boots! Peep these patent ankle-high Dr. Martens, for example.

As avid hikers AND fashionistas, we just cant get over this picture of Wen wearing hiking boots backstage at fashion week.

Fashion Guide For Men This Winter: Top Tips For You

October 28, 2011

This winter, it’s more important than ever to ensure you get the right look for yourself. Particularly if you’re a bigger gent who gets men’s clothes at jacamo.co.uk or other online stores, you may be daunted by the vast selection of threads available. By consulting this mini guide to things you ought to prioritise, you too can succeed in getting the clothing that’s right for you.

Firstly, buy more than one coat. Coats are a central part of your wardrobe in the colder months, and while other jackets in your armoury may be nice to look at, they probably aren’t suitable for all situations. Consider a wool topcoat for a suit, for instance, or a leather jacket for flexibility’s sake. Make sure your basic winter jacket is warm, at the very least, while having at least one waterproof go-to.

Particularly if you’re a bigger guy, you should avoid wearing a bulky sweater because they can easily make you look heavier than you are. Look for alternatives that are thinner which you can layer with other clothing to keep you well-insulated yet more slender-looking; while they may be expensive, consider garments made from cashmere or ones tailored to you as you will get your money’s worth.

If you’re out to pick a pair of gloves, experiment with the colour or stay neutral. This is an important fashion tip for men because they are often afraid to add a splash of colour to a otherwise neutral outfit. Gloves need to be able to complement an outfit and should not act as a distraction, so try not to pick something that has out-there designs or a bulky aesthetic; instead, it’s best to go with an item that’s solid colour, dull yellow, maroon, red or more neutral tans, and blacks. Leather gloves are a good way to boost any outfit.

Finally, be sure to remember that colours really need to be all neutral or dark, but men, whatever size they are, are allowed to brighten it up a bit. For instance, if you’re wearing a neutral outfit, it’s okay to brighten it up with a lively scarf or other accessories that carry a lot of colour. Something bright or with a pattern isn’t a bad thing in the slightest, but don’t go overboard, keep the splash as just that, a splash, not a bucket of print dumped on you!
