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?!

I just recently got a haircut which I felt was perfect for this seasons upcoming spring hairstyle. This style is very much recommended to all males as it suits all ages. Previously I displayed a few images of what hairstyles are popular. Now, I’ll show you images of my hairstyle which is most surely my best hairstyle in a while!

(Below) is the Spring 2013 Effortless Quiff.

I really love this hairstyle and it is similarly reminiscent of Justin Timberlake’s recent ‘Suit&Tie’ hairstyle.

But I actually was inspired by this image, which I have previously shown. (Below)

This picture also inspired me to get highlights. I don’t like the idea of going for drastic changes, so I opted for a soft light brown scattered on the top of the head, whilst also encouraged to create a stand-out look by including light blonde highlights, which are very subtle, to avoid looking like Rogue in X-Men.

I think spring (hopefully) will be a positive bright season and you’ll be able to soak up some sun and show off some effortless Quiffs. Attempt to keep the top long, whilst trimming the sides short. Please make sure in order to achieve this hairstyle, do not create a short back of the hair, as it could come across as very bold and could be regrettable. Opt for a relaxed look. Blow drying after a shower, with slight product used to create a luxury texture will work wonders!

Thanks, let me know about your hair queries!
