Hello my tumblr followers. I apologise in advance for my lack of post, I have just been so busy with my uni work ,but I have finally submitted my work for this semester.
As pictured above you can see three outfits, my task was to design a collection which had a military theme. I decide to go with some classic shoulder pads with a twist ,so I decide to put some fur on the shoulders. I wanted my outfits to still fit within the military theme ,but at the same time I wanted it to be different; hence the bright colour orange. I wanted to pick army green because it sets the tone ,but by brining the bright orange and the unusual black and orange fabric with circles , I wanted to put my own stamp on the trend . By giving it a classic, but twisted look on the so called military trend.
OMG I cannot believe that my babe Paul Walker is dead he seemed like such a good man lord I pray that you protect his family 🙏💔

I love how this look can be easily transformed into a day outfit into a night out outfit for example this outfit is perfectly fine for the day but if you were to go out for a drink with your mates or even on a date and you wanted to switch it up a bit then , you could swap to some smart shoes and a white top to give that sleek and sophisticated look and you could also add some eye candy such as a gold watch and a simple chain to give it that final polish which is just what it deserves.
Hello my Tumblr followers today Is the first time I have uploaded one of my own designs.
After looking through some magazines and fashion blogs I was inspired to sketch so I did and I created two menswear pieces, I decided to incorporate pink in both of my drawings because pink is one of the colours which are on trend for women so it is more likely to lean into menswear to. My first picture is a man in a suit I have gone for a really sophisticated look with a twist this is why a top hat is included in the design however there is a twist as the design of the hat is unusual.
I really like this look because the pink really compliments the grey. This is different from my second look which is more of a casual look as it is a bomber jacket two piece suit. I also like this look because royal blue gives the sense that winter is here but the outfit can also be worn in the summer.
All forms of Red
What colour should we expect to see Men in the upcoming season?
On the catwalk Red was shown to be apart of many designers pieces such as kenzo , Lanvin , Burberry and many more from cherry red , wine, burgundy and maroon .
The colour red is very bold so my advice on this soon to be trend is to wear neutralize the colour with black or even tan as it will tone down an outfit. Some men may chose to be a bit more daring and wear an all red outfit which has different shades of red which was shown in one of Margiela pieces.
I think its great to see this colour in the AW’13 season as red really is a pop colour and you can’t really go wrong with red, as it looks good on all forms of clothing whether this maybe a jumper , blazer , trousers or even a scarf. This trend is most definitely what i will be recommended people to try.
OVER SIZED COATS
Autumn / winter is quickly approaching and I don’t’ know about anybody else but I cannot wait until this season arrives. The collections for menswear this year for this particular season is very exciting, as there are allot of great things which will be fun for men to explore.
The idea of seeing men in the upcoming A/W trends really makes me smile as I can see them wrapped up in over sized coats / jackets which is one of my favorite trends this season.
Designers have created great looks for this trend such as Balenciaga , Versace , D&G , Lavin and many more.
My advice for this trend for men is to not overpower this look for example if you was to wear a over sized jacket / coat then I would suggest you not to wear baggy trousers as well; as the look will not be balanced. However I would say if you was wearing a over sized coat / jacket then wear a slim trousers as it makes the look more stylish and more balanced.
What do you think about this trend?
This summer I have seen various amount of boys and men wearing plain white tops / shirts alongside shorts or trousers . I love it as there is nothing better than seeing a male being able to pull this simple look of.
