Outfit of the Day: Fashion Conscious Gentleman

Woah, it’s truly been a long time since I last blogged. But this new style of mine has really impacted on others (positively), as I type this I’m currently dressed in this outfit, for a night out with family.

Here it is…!!!!

This look is really cool! Especially because it was affordable, worth it and classic! A majority of this outfit was from H&M’s conscious collection. I normally think H&M is too basic for my personal taste, but their special collections always find a way into my weak fashion obsessed heart! The items from the collection included, the blazer (£30) which is a beautiful bright olive green colour. Everything in this collection is organic and real material. The green blazer is a must-have for spring time, it kept me warm and comfy!

Another item from the collection is the blue textures scarf (£9), which compliments the olive tone. You may not be able to see the shirt in the image above, but I’m wearing a shirt also from H&M’s collection (£10). This is also very flattering and comfortable! So worth the money! The skinny jeans and grey stone shoes are from Topman and Aldo! My accessories include an exclusive personalised bracelet from H&M’s Dragon Tattoo Collection, which I personalised with studs and a real gold Versace ring with the logo. You need a little bling to jazz up an outfit!

This image (below) allows you to see closer and in more detail of the shirt and how well they contrast with the blazer!

This image (above) shows a close up of then shirt cuff at the arm and my accessories in detail. I love bracelets and rings, creating my own personal style. These accessories made my outfit more smart casual. Perfect for an evening out or a day trip in town!

Would love some feedback and comments on what you think about this style?!

Fashion Icon: R-Patz & Gucci

Robert Pattinson, star of the Twilight Saga may seem to have a relaxed personal style, yet you can tell he has a fashionable, confident side comes out when he dresses in the best Gucci suits! Let’s see his best choices.

This suit is one of my absolute favourites (below). He wore this powder blue Gucci at the premiere of Cosmopolis. This was after the K-Stew cheating scandal, where he displayed to the public that he was unfazed by the media frenzy and promoted his film with style and class. I love the idea of the suit shade getting darker. His powder blue suit is paired with a darker blue shirt and a black tie. The colour contrast of this is brilliant and recommended when wearing a coloured suit. The idea of using black minimally creates a unique look, rather than the typical. Also a great fit is hugely important, slim fit trousers are the trend, and ultra-slim is much flattering to guys with longer legs or a natural slim frame like R-Patz.

This suit (below) was worn at the Twilight: Eclipse premiere. Although a while back, maroon/burgundy is a popular suit colour on red carpets for men. This suit is very daring, so pairing it with a white shirt makes it pop and keeps it simple. Having the jacket buttons match the tie here works well.

This suit (below) was worn at the premiere of ‘Water for Elephants’ and I love this colour. This brown is rarely seen on the red carpet, (but Ryan Gosling was recently seen wearing a similar one). It’s such a rare colour and yet it works really well. The black and brown combination works well and the brown is not a typical brown, it’s almost hazel and chocolate combined.

Last but not least, is one of my favourites R-Patz has donned. Worn at the Breaking Dawn Part Two premiere in LA and I have to say its a stunning suit. I love it. When I first saw this suit I was crazy to find a cheaper and affordable version! It’s one of a kind due to the intimate squared detailing on the emerald suit, it also has a silky shine to it. A statement suit for sure. The powder blue shirt is also a great combination, making it that little more different.

Tip: in order to look youthful, only close the one button of the jacket, allowing you room to breathe also.
