Fashion Matters

Not that many things matter to me in life than fashion. It is of utmost importance for me to make sure that I always dress fashionably, whether it is autumn, winter, or spring. I simply put a lot of attention to detail, and I like the idea of always looking good.

On the other hand, fashion is always a way for me to express myself and the way I feel about various things. One way to accomplish this is to wear clothes with some sort of message. When you look at TeeIsland, then you will know what I am talking about here.

What I like about TeeIsland is the variety of great clothes they offer with very funny and straight-to-the point messages. I had a lot of fun browsing all the messages on the T-shirts, and I was able to find many of them that I liked. I had been planning to expand my wardrobe for some time now, so it is perfect timing for me as I am going to be purchasing some items soon.

The website got a very nice, complete overhaul recently and it is a lot easier to find on it anything you want. This is great news for all those who want fashion to be accessible and who don’t want to spend too much time looking for the items they might want to buy and wear.

Fashion Trends in 2014

Who doesn’t like January sales? By this I mean all types of sales including electronics, books, and fashion of course. Anyway, I usually like to wait until the beginning of a New Year to shop for some clothes online as I know that I am going to grab a good deal or two. I guess this yer is not going to be any different. I am still shopping for some fashionable clothes and I am still grabbing the good deals from all over the Internet, deals that put many smiles on my face.

What are some of the fashion trends for 2014? This season, women are going to dress in a simple way. Their clothes will be colorful, but pin-stripped and spotted clothes are going to be replaced by plain ones. Gone are the days when striped and checked clothing dominated the fashion industry. Now, with the new season around the corner, women (as well as men) want to look classy, elegant, smart and chic, but not scruffy as it used to be popular in the past. Flowery and tartan patterns are going to remain trendy, but they are going to be reserved for certain situations only. There won’t be any baggy or loose clothes this season as well as many women will choose to opt for skin-tight jeans or other tight clothing.

Working in Fashion

It is all very well liking clothes and fashion but you need to take your interest further in order to get one of the top fashion jobs.

Education is also an important area. Whether you go to university or study at a private college many academic courses are specifically geared towards the fashion industry. Some are more placement orientated working you towards a specific job within the fashion industry whilst other courses may be more generic. Be sure to bear this in mind when seeking out your dream fashion job.

An alternative option is to consider an apprenticeship or internship. Many of the top fashion brands offer numerous places a year to keen, bright and passionate individuals. Such placements can give you an invaluable leg up in what is an extremely competitive industry. You may start off doing basic errands and grunt work but over time you will develop skills and experience that rivals for your deem fashion job will not have. Such experience is invaluable when it comes to application time. Without doubt internships and apprenticeships are one of the most effective ways to get ahead in the fashion industry.

Keep working at things, keep researching, write your own blogs, design your own labels, and whatever it is that you love about fashion make sure you keep at it.

If you go back 50 years, you would probably be disappointed with the choice of shoes they had back then in the shops. Choices available were so limited and only a handful of designs were sold by the manufacturers.

Nowadays however the situation is a lot different from the past. Fashion is taken into consideration when producing golf shoes and there is a wide variety to pick from. In fact people are nowadays spoilt for choice when choosing shoes to buy. Until recently, all golf shoes looked the same as before.

The shoes are made to meet fashion and comfort needs of the players.

Current golf players are more concerned about fashion when it comes to picking shoes and this is the main reason why golf trainers became so popular within a short period of time.

It Is All about The Shoes

I remember recently buying a brand new outfit. It consisted of a black and white sweater and skin-tight trousers that were also black. It took me a while to finally choose something I liked, so you can imagine what a smile it put on my face. The moment I dressed the outfit, I realised that something was definitely missing. After a while I pinpointed the problem: my shoes. The shoes I was wearing at that time didn’t match my outfit. The were the culprit behind all this and it needed to change.

I am sure that most of you have been in a similar predicament before: you finally found your long-desired outfit only to discover that matching shoes were nowhere to be found. What can you do in such a situation? You can, for example, go directly to www.gipsydharma.com where you will find a great deal of shoes or boots that your feet are actually going to enjoy.

This isn’t the first time I have heard about shoes that feel so natural, light and skin-like. In my opinion, the shoes that I choose to wear shouldn’t definitely feel heavy, but rather light as a feather. This has been my philosophy for a long time and nothing indicates that it is going to change any time soon. I simply like it when the clothes and shoes I choose to wear breathe and don’t make me feel heavier than I am.

Duck and Cover: For the guy that likes the stand out

Duck and Cover have nailed the art of stylish menswear.  It is their quirky take on traditional designs that has made them a firm favourite with men all over the world.

If you have failed to hear about British clothing label Duck and Cover, where have you been hiding for the last few years?  This is a brand that was established in 1996 with this unknown brand quickly growing in popularity.  A group of designers wanted to bring a fun and casual feel to their clothing and create something they were very happy to wear themselves.

How did they come up with the name?

The brand name represents their relaxed attitude to fashion and was a name that came from a well known public awareness video dating back to the early fifties.  The film was called Duck and Cover and was broadcast at the height of the cold war with Soviet Union.  It featured a turtle urging children to duck in the unfortunate event of a nuclear attack.  The film still features on the clothing brand’s website.

The designers wanted the brand to highlight their light hearted approach to life but focused more towards their attitude to fashion.  They were very aware of the fashion industry and how a lot of fashion lovers and designers take fashion far too seriously and wanted to change this attitude.

They have achieved what they wanted and that is to stand out from the crowd with a bit of British humour but not forgetting the seriousness associated with the brand.

Back to today…..  They have now been selling their cool and unique t shirts, jumpers, jeans and other clothing items for men for many years now.  Due to its popularity they have even extended their market to women but designing clothing for men will always be their main market.

They have built a ‘one of a kind’ identity that is very distinctive.  They are very careful on which retailers they supply their clothes to.  In fact they will only sell to a small number of retailers that completely understand the ethos surrounding their brand targeting a specific niche.
