Other couples may have similar taste in fashion and like the way that the outfits look on each other.

The “twinning” effect can be exhibited through identical outfits, coordinating colors, or just in the feel of the fashion look. For example, actor Will Ferrell and his wife Kristen Wiig were spotted in the Tribecca neighborhood of Manhattan in their matching navy hoodies with “WILLSTEN” in white letters across the chest, which is a combination of both their first names, put together for a wearable couple nickname. Will and Kristen completed their couple’s vibe with blue jeans, casual shoes, and of course some complimentary shades – nothing too fancy here like you’d expect from Quiz Clothing’s #getglamorous campaign.

Actor Jason Statham and his Victoria Secret angel Rosie Huntington-Whiteley are nicely coordinated in their street looks while traveling and strolling outside.  Jason is in medium wash jeans, optic white t-shirt with matching tennis shoes, and British tan leather jacket with his luggage in tow, while Rosie picks up on the tone of his jacket with her heathered tan sweater, leather tote bag, and matching pumps. They are also looking chic and casual while strolling the streets in tonal blue jeans and neutral sweatshirts. They break off the twinning in sneakers vs. boots, however.

Extreme “twinning” is seen in a photo of singers Britney Spears and Justin Timberlake in 2001 with their explosion of denim on the red carpet. Britney strapless denim dress has a cute upper bodice to compliment her figure, but the bottom looks like a patchwork nightmare. Justin’s head to toe blue jean ensemble is probably a look that he would like to forget, since he has become quite a fashion icon is his own right. To the question, “Can you wear too much denim?” The answer is definitely yes!

How to Wear Sheepskin with Style!

Sheepskin has been around for as long as man has been able to catch a sheep. For the record, catching sheep has never been easy as they can move surprisingly fast for creatures with relatively short legs. Anyway, we digress so back to the benefits of sheep and their skin:

8083456206_2681b5afc9_n

Yes, sheep are very useful in many ways. Sheep meat is tasty, nutritious, and a staple on many menus. Sheep’s wool is used to make wool, which in turn is woven into fabric and used to make sweaters. Lastly, sheepskin is used to create garments and soft furnishings for the home.

The Benefits of Sheepskin

Genuine sheepskin is warm, waterproof, and easy to work with, which is why it is a perennially popular fabric for coats, jackets, gloves, and boots. The history of sheepskin as a garment is long. Shepherds once used sheepskin to keep warm at night and the use of sheepskin for boots has been traced back to 500BC.

For much of history, sheepskin has been viewed as a utilitarian material, used for its insulating qualities. Working men used sheepskin to protect their bodies and extremities from the cold and a pair of sheepskin lined boots was essential for anyone toiling away in sub-zero temperatures.

Sheepskin in Fashion

Today, things are a bit different and although sheepskin is still an important material for working people, it is increasingly becoming a fashion accessory for the rich and famous. It became popular in the 60s, with a sheepskin coat essential wear for the Beatnik Generation. Fast-forward to the 80s, Vivienne Westwood used sheepskin in her collections and sheepskin rocketed into the mainstream.

Today, sheepskin is still as popular as it ever was, but if you want to be a trendsetter and wear sheepskin in style, there is a right way and a wrong way to wear this amazing fabric.

Sheepskin coats are an enduring trend and 2015 saw a revival of long, floor length coats that were so popular in the 1970s. On the Chloe catwalk, models wore long sheepskin coats over floaty dresses, accessories with thin belts. Burberry took a slightly different approach – their designers gave traditional brown sheepskin a new look with navy blue and grey dye.

Classic Sheepskin

Today there are lots of ways to wear sheepskin. A classic sheepskin coat is the perfect accompaniment to skinny jeans and a cute woollen sweater, especially on a cold winter’s day. These make a great date outfit, or why not throw on a sheepskin coat if you are heading out for a walk in the park with the kids?

Belted sheepskin coats can be dressed up with a belt and stylish knee-length boots. There are also some seriously trendy biker-style sheepskin jackets for those of you who want to rock the biker chick look.

How Not to Wear Sheepskin

Sheepskin is eminently wearable, but for the record, sheepskin Ugg boots are no longer a good look. D-List celebrities have killed off Ugg boots completely. Wear them at your peril.

You can’t go wrong with sheepskin. It looks great on and it also looks great in the home, so check out sheepskin rugs by Sheep Skin Town if your home needs a makeover.

2016 MTV Movie Awards Celebrity Fashion

On April 9th, the MTV Movie Awards was aired from a previous taping at The Warner Brother Studios in Burbank CA.   Most people remember when MTV hit the TV channels, because you could binge watch or dance to all of your favorite bands’ music videos.  Since that time, MTV has expanded to reality shows, sitcoms, and movies too.  They also have their own ceremonies to celebrate excellence in those categories.  For the MTV Movie Awards, it is only fitting that the award itself is a golden popcorn statue.

Bespoke Suit: 6 Steps to Looking Damn Sharp

Are you a man? If you answered ‘yes’ then you need at least one bespoke suitin’ your wardrobe that stands out. Whether it’s for the office or special occasion, all men need that one suit that makes them feel damn good when they put it on. With that being said, it doesn’t mean you have to go to your nearest Verace store or other overpriced boutique outlet. Bespoke means just that – bespoke to your body. If you’re concerned about the latest trends, then just bring a cut out to your tailor of choice and they will sort the rest out for you.

Bespoke Suit Process

Step One: Find a Good Tailor    

Seems pretty obvious, but finding the right bespoke suit tailor that can deliver might be harder than you think. So to be sure, ask family and friends and seek out a tailor with a good reputation. Word of mouth advertising can only be gained through quality workmanship and great customer service.

Step Two: Select Your Fabric of Choice

Once you have found your tailor then it’s time to select your fabric. Remember, you can choose something that is a little higher in quality as you aren’t paying for the brand name too. Ask your tailor to show you all the fabrics they have that are over 110 quality rating, as this rating is almost guaranteed to possess fine looking and durable attributes.

Step Three: The Fitting

Probably the most crucial step. Here it is important that the tailor applies his / her skills yet is able to openly communicate to listen to any suggestions or concerns you may have. After all, this is about you. Bespoke doesn’t just refer to the suit but the whole experience, which a good bespoke suit tailor should already know.

Here you should be telling the tailor that you would like your suit to fall on your shoulders, waist and shoes. This will mean less alterations before it fits perfectly and before you can take it home. There’s nothing worse than having a suit that is just that little bit awkward, especially when you are paying a decent price for it.

Step Four: DefineYour Style

If you’re not the most fashion conscious man, then opt for a more classic look and fit. A bespoke suit should increase your confidence, not the other way around. Make sure you are comfortable with the look. Be sure to discuss exactly how you want to portray yourself.

If you’re the trendy type, then find your inspiration in the latest fashion magazines and determine what is ‘trending’ at the time. However, as trends come and go – try to find something that won’t expire overnight. Do your research.

Step Five: Personalise

The beauty of a bespoke suit is that you can add personalised touches and make it look genuine and exclusive. Whether you opt for specific buttons or pockets, these finishing personal add-ons will be sure to impress your friends or work colleagues to leave a long lasting impression.

Step Six: The Final Fitting

This stage will require you to oversee every detail, and whatever questions you may have make sure to ask them. The tailor will at this stage ask you to try on the suit and will examine every nook and cranny to make sure the suits fits perfectly.

The Wristwatch: An Essential Fashion Accessory

Within our techno-savvy world of smart phones and watches, the simplistic ability to be able to tell the time has taken a back seat. Having been a “watch-wearer” for years, putting on a watch before leaving home has become routine, like brushing your teeth.

2016-Richard-Mille-mens-watches-620x579 A watch will not only give you the time of day, but it is also considered an essential accessory to give any outfit a polished look. Even if your style is casual, a watch can be that focal point that pulls things all together. For example, Emporio Armani pairs a stainless-steel tone, bracelet link watch with a charcoal chronograph face and a great graphic t-shirt, to take a casual look to the next level.

The designer details catch your eye, then the exposed working gears draw you right in. It is an accessory that will definitely get a second look.
