Recently i've been taking my style inspiration from mens street fashion as its so insanely good. I absolutely love the boyish, preppy look with layers made up from oversized shirts with turned up collars, jumpers, printed neck scarfs, shaggy long cardigans topped with a boyfriend coat, along with skinnies or relaxed baggy hip sitting pants, statement socks and a pair of loafers or sneakers finished off with a leather hand wallet or side satchel. Beanies and Fedoras are also looking perfectly on point.

I never really appreciated mens fashion until very recently due to my university module which was based on re-creating a double page spread of the mens lifestyle and fashion magazine '10men'. 

 Obviously research had to be done into the factors that make a successful mens fashion magazine and what unique codes and conventions different magazines have. After spending over £30 on magazines such as Homme +, 10men, Dazed and Confused, Esquire, Wonderland etc I think I have so much more love for mens style than womens. I'd much rather wear a pair of distressed loose fitting jeans, printed shirt tucked in, bold socks with thick leather brogues and a manly doubled breasted blazer.

Bar hopping...lead to clubbing

Friday, 17 January 2014

(Shoes - Topshop £135, Mom jeans - Topshop £40, Blouse - vintage, Fur Coat - vintage, Belt - Blitz London £25)

Risky move buying white jeans and then pairing it with a white blouse when you know alcohol is going to be involved, also the heels are extremely high, probably wasn't the best choice as bar hopping lead to clubbing and now my feet are dying!

But finally my first pair of white jeans, which i normally wouldn't ever buy but i love the mom jean fit and look especially with the rips and high-waist.
