Movie Fashion Icon: Henry Cavill

Movie Fashion Icon: Henry Cavill

So, it’s been a while, but here is a new fashion icon who has influenced my style for the summer season.

As you know, the updated ‘Man of Steel’ is releasing in June this year and the role of Superman has been taken by fellow Brit, Henry Cavill. Those of you may have heard he was dubbed ‘Most Unluckiest Man in Hollywood’ because he missed out roles such as Edward Cullen in ‘Twilight’. Though his luck has just got good!

Henry recently shot new images for the June issue of British GQ Magazine! (The Gentleman’s Bible) and I thought I could show you those images and explore Henry’s personal style of casual.

(Above) – Henry is wearing an outfit from Tom Ford. This suit is very well tailored and the check texture is very subtle yet creates a statement.

20130506-112042 AM.jpg

(Above) – this outfit is something very casual, yet made more sophisticated by adding a navy trench. This outfit could be worn out in the park, at a meal in the evening or a party.

Henry is seen usually wearing comfortable clothing. He is seen often wearing white shirts and blue jeans.
If you’re looking for comfort, he’s a fashion icon to look up to. Especially when the weather is hot! Don’t be afraid to make a statement with simple white shirts. (Below)

So what do you think about this generation’s Superman? I love his classic style and this style can suit all ages. Sometimes it’s nice to wear just a simple white shirt and jeans but still making a statement! Let me know what you think?

Rising Star Style: Alden Ehrenreich

I recently watched ‘Beautiful Creatures’ and I was amazed by the brilliant acting of newcomer Alden Ehrenreich. He recently wore an amazing suit at the LA premiere of ‘Beautiful Creatures’.

The suit is impeccably tailored to perfection and the colour of burgundy and a dark claret look amazing. The suit is by designer Albert Hammond Jr.

I love this suit. The colour is very on trend and the combination of the brown and burgundy tie and brogue combo create a laid back and suave look.
What do you think about this suit? Alden is for sure a new fashion icon and rising star.

Eddie Redmayne: Young Fashion Icon

Eddie Redmayne: Young Fashion Icon

Eddie Redmayne: Star of Hit Musical adaptation, Les Miserables, has shown the world what awesome style he has. This guy has worn the best suits I have ever seen, which are always impeccably fitted and tailored to perfection. If I was to wear a smart suit, I’d look at Eddie for fashion inspiration. He loves to take a risk on the red carpet by changing the colours and materials of his suits. Always daring and statement suits are in order whenever Eddie Redmayne is there. Let’s look at his best suits!

1) Teal Velvet Suit

20130222-063316 PM.jpg

This suit is AMAZING! When I saw this beautiful Burberry Velvet suit worn at the Les Miserables UK premiere, I seriously could not believe my eyes. I have always been interested in velvet suits and I see them being this years biggest trend. The colour of this suit looks amazing and is very unique when photographed and it is perfectly tailored . Burberry is ideally the perfect designer for suits at the moment. This was custom made for Burberry spokesperson and model, Eddie. The brown brogues are a perfect when accompanying the suit and is cooler than the generic black.

2) Midnight Blue BAFTA suit

20130222-064307 PM.jpg

This suit was worn at the 2013 EE BAFTAs. This suit is not velvet but another daring statement suit as Eddie was the only one in a midnight blue suit. The blue bow tie looks good against the white shirt and black shoes suit the winter evening event. Similar cheap versions of this Burberry suit could be found at Reiss or Topman.

3) Royal Blue Redmayne

20130222-064911 PM.jpg

This Royal blue suit was worn by Eddie at the New York premiere is really slick. The check designed brown tie creates a casual style and the red pocket square creates a cool contrast. The charcoal black shoes are casual and could also be worn with a dark pair of jeans. But it creates a comfortable look.

4) SAG Awards Brown suit

20130222-065559 PM.jpg

This brown suit is great for a daytime event. I love the change with this suit and brown is a great colour against pale skin. This velvet Hugo Boss suit looks suave with the glossy black shoes. The sun makes the suit shimmer and stand out.

I love all 4 suits and cant decide which one I love the most. Which one of these suits is your favourite? Is he a fashion icon for the younger generation. Are velvet suits on trend? Let me know

Blazer Fashion

Blazer Fashion

No matter what the weather, Blazers are always in trend. The best thing about Blazers is that you can buy many different fabric blazers to suit any weather conditions. Another thing which is great, is that Blazers will instantly give a preppy/smart look to any casual or formal outfit.

A recent Blazer I have purchased is from Zara Man. This gorgeous Blazer is perfect for this cold weather as its made from a two cotton blend of white and black fabric, Blazer (pictured below), cost a reasonable £59.99 and is very comforting and warm. Overall, a perfect piece to accompany a trip out on the town, a pair of black jeans, coloured brogues and a cotton shirt would be ideal.

20130221-044836 PM.jpg

Another blazer which I also own is from high end store ‘Reiss’ which was on sale from £250 to £120. I literally picked up the last one at my local store. This luxurious emerald velvet blazer is so stunning and rich in colour. It is made for a cocktail hour or an occasion out, a ball/prom or wedding. I have been saving this blazer for the right occasion, which I would probably stick to the classic black trousers and a white shirt. (Pictured below)

20130221-045720 PM.jpg

20130221-045738 PM.jpg

Another Blazer from Topman is a very classic casual style. This Harris Tweed Blazer works really well with a casual look, a pair of blue jeans and a blue shirt. I pair this with brown or dark purple skinny trousers and a pair of brown brogues.

20130221-050111 PM.jpg

Blazers are very on trend and I recommend all men to own at least one Blazer. No matter what occasion, a Blazer will help you look and feel smart & confident! Let me know what you think about these blazers!

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!
