RiRi shocked everybody when she turned up at this years Grammys in what we can call a beautiful, simple red dress. She wowed everybody with a rich scarlet gown by Alia.

POP of Fashion

POP of Fashion

I always like wearing bright colours. Colours which make people look twice and I like wearing colours which compliment each other. This doesn’t mean go out wearing a pair of neon green jeans to the park, it means enhancing your style with a pop of colour. I like wearing bright colours very in a very understated way.

For example, the way I use bright colours in my wardrobe is to wear navy blue jeans and wooden brogues with fluorescent pair of socks which creates a whole new meaning to the outfit and just that little bit more exciting. As you can see from the image (below) it’s a very bright and luminous colour to wear, but it’s such a small piece of clothing on the outfit, meaning it won’t be on display, yet subtle hints will pop through and stand out. This preppy image creates a fun, carefree attitude when it comes to fashion.

20130219-022306 PM.jpg

Another understated way to show bright colour, is through contrasting two darker shades, which still pop out.
This electric blue leather jacket really stands out against the mustard cotton shirt, which is quite mute, yet stands out without being over-the-top. (Below), the use of gold accessories with this enhance the muted bright colours for an expensive look.

20130219-023230 PM.jpg

As yellow is a very bright colour, in the image (below) I have paired a bright yellow shirt with a black leather jacket and jeans which makes it look very indie and preppy. I like the idea of using bright colours and mixing them with dark leather or tweed. Darker jumpers with bright collars also look great!

20130219-023455 PM.jpg

Hope you love the use of colour I have used in my daily fashion. Bright pops of colour make everyone think you’re wearing a different outfit. I love colour, it truly expresses what personal fashion aims to express. Try it out!

Hope you can give me feedback on what you would like to see. Thanks!

Ryan Gosling: Style Icon

Ryan Gosling: Style Icon

Ryan Gosling has certainly defined how every man should dress. From casual jeans and a tee to a blue tuxedo. He likes to try different styles, being defined as a Style Icon for Mens fashion of the 21st Century.

20130216-055516 PM.jpg

This suit (above) was worn by Ryan at the ‘Ides of March’ Premiere. The Olive coloured suit is so cool and special. Here his tie is matching the suit which looks very good, and the patterned design on the tie gives an edge to the already show-stopping suit! The use of black creates a sophisticated style and the white shirt makes it more casual and relaxed.

20130216-055922 PM.jpg

The suit (displayed above) where Ryan wore this suave brown suit at the premiere of ‘Gangster Squad’. Ryan, with his mother, shows off a three-piece suit, where the waistcoat looks great. Waistcoats are in trend and look good when matched with the suit. My favourite item here is the leather studded shoes, which is such a daring yet contemporary shoe. The shoe completes the outfit to make it a stand out piece of fashion.

20130216-060720 PM.jpg

The suit (above) worn by Ryan at the Crazy, Stupid, Love premiere is a unique take on the classic black suit. This time enhanced with silver threaded check all over the suit. The design comes across well in images.

20130216-060922 PM.jpg

The outfit (above) really represents the effortless style of Ryan Gosling. It’s very clean, casual and effortless. The stripy cardigan and black jeans gives off a casual look, whilst the rocker boots give a effortless take on a clean look. The sunglasses enhance his star image making him seem very cool and the chain around his neck adds some individual funk to his outfit, making it more interesting.

TIP: enhancing your style with little changes. From Ryan’s style we can see he likes to make a usual look, unusual (in a great way). He clearly understands fashion. Accessories are always a plus. Not too many, for example; a pair of sunglasses, a chain/necklace, a bracelet/watch or a cool ring. I also think the making traditional, untraditional is great also, like his studded shoes or a patterned tie. Never be afraid to think outside of the box and look at Ryan’s fashion for inspiration. I certainly have.
