Grooming with L’Oreal’s Charcoal Wash

This time around, I stumbled upon the Black Charcoal Wash “Magnetic Wash” from L’Oreal Men Expert which has completely revolutionised my grooming process in the morning – cutting it down half the time.

Hello everyone! I hope we have all had an enjoyable few weeks, from Halloween to Bonfire Night, it’s been a busy one! And now it is turning colder and the need to layer up is upon us, I thought I would bring another outfit to inspire you!

I believe that a jacket can be the decider for an outfit, taking it from a good one to a great one – this is why I think the jacket is the statement piece for anything you wear in Autumn/Winter.

3 Ways to Style a Blazer

3 ways to style a blazer

 

I got challenged by House of Fraser to look through the past fashions of Awards Shows and create my own lookbook for an outfit worthy of the red carpet.

The department store teams up with the BAFTAs each year to show that British men have what it takes to shine when in the spotlight.

Here’s some of the inspiration I took from previous years.

My three outfits got more casual as I went along because I wanted to show that a blazer doesn’t have to be worn with a shirt and suit trousers to work.

My first look does pair the blazer with a shirt and formal trousers to create the ultimate sophisticated outfit that could be worn anywhere – especially worthy for any of the red carpet events.

My second look comprises of wearing the blazer with a jumper and skinny black jeans. Wearing a jumper can still be considered to be smart and going for the right colour really helps – I went for a deep red as it’s bold and formal. And there’s nothing wrong with skinny black jeans, they’re definitely something that every man should have in his wardrobe as they can dress up or dress down an outfit.

My third, and most casual look, consists of a floral t-shirt, jeans and trainers. I know this might not be suitable for the red carpet, but for everyday it can be perfect. Floral for spring (duh), comfortable jeans and appropriate trainers make for the best casual look that is completed by the blazer.

Let me know what you think and feel free to comment how you’d style the blazer!

Blogger's Savile Row Look Book

Male bloggers Savile Row Look book

What do you think of when someone mentions Savile Row?

If it’s suits and excellent tailoring then that’s exactly what we wanted to focus on for this shoot.

Myself and a couple of other top male bloggers (check their links below) got together to shoot a few of our favourite looks from the tailoring world to bring you this awesome lookbook, showcasing different styles from a variety of places.

My suit is from Burton and it’s beautiful. I opted for a high street brand to show that it doesn’t cost a fortune to look nice – there are options at a fraction of the price of luxury that still allow you to look dapper. I was a bit out of my depth wearing a three piece suit but it was totally different. I love trying new things, getting myself out of my comfort zone and I’m glad I did. The three handsome guys I had the pleasure of shooting with made it all worth it.

Let us know your thoughts on our looks and give the other guys a follow.

OOTD: Into The Woods

 

This shoot was crazy fun! I ventured into the woods and near the lake on my University Campus and chose this spot. I think it’s beautiful.

My new love for overcoats has been fulfilled with this beautiful one from Primark and I literally haven’t taken it off since I bought it. It’s warm, cosy and goes with pretty much every outfit (so look out for more from this little number!)

The tee is from ASOS and it’s knitted – that’s right, I said it’s bloody knitted. And it’s incredibly snug. It feels like you’re wearing a t shirt underneath a jumper it’s that warm, even I was surprised. I love the blue crosses because it adds a little bit of colour to my outfit.

I seem to be edging towards wearing a lot of black lately. I even bought a beautiful leather jacket last week (coming soon!) so I’m completely addicted. The bag saved me and added a little bit more colour to the outfit. It’s from Spiral UK.

The watch is one of the accessories that I knew I needed to pair with this outfit. I snapped it from Streethub and it’s such a nice addition. It’s made of rubber so it’s easy to slip it onto your wrist, there’s no messing around with a strap and no catching your hair in the links. The faces are designed to pop right out and are interchangeable with different colour straps. This is such a genius idea so it is able to go with any outfit you wear. I love the clean clock-face and the way there are no distractions when looking at it. It’s a little difficult in the same way that it’s not clear what the actual time is, but it’s simple enough to get used to! I’ve pretty much worn it every day since it got posted through my door and I don’t intend to take it off anytime soon.
