I&rsquo;m sure you have seen everyone rocking this trend with high-heels, gladiator sandals and even ballet flats. But now, lace-up has taken over and made it&rsquo;s way into dresses, tops and bodysuits. &nbsp; &nbsp; Now, if lace-up clothing makes you immediately think of the crazy can&rsquo;t-breathe corsets back in the 1920s, don&rsquo;t worry! It is made to be way more comfortable, stylish and fun. The key to this trend is to keep accessories to a minimum as you want the attention on the clothing. &nbsp; This versatile trend is for everyone and every occasion: for a daytime outfit you can opt for a classic lace up wool jumper paired with a pair of jeans worn with high heel boots, whereas for an evening outfit, a maxi coat worn over a subtle dress with lace up heels would be perfect. &nbsp; &nbsp; On runways, designers showcased very dark opulent fabrics like velvet, fur, leather and of course, the popular lace-up detailing. It was in everything, from dresses and tops to shoes and brace yourself: even lace up corsets are back! The laced up detailing was utterly massive, with mostly black and white colours, they often appeared for decorative purposes. &nbsp; &nbsp; Rihanna&rsquo;s Fenty Puma collection is also a fan of the lace up trend, which was used to give off a cool gothic edge. Celebrities and the world of bloggers are definitely strong supporters of this trend together with Kim Kardashian, Gigi Hadid, Amal Clooney and Annabelle Fleur rocking lace-up looks in their daily lives! &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Well there you have it, lace-up detailing is everywhere including runways, street style and even celeb style, and we here at IFITU are in love without a doubt! &nbsp; ---- Pictures: pinterest.com, topshop.com, newlook.com, asos.com, boohoo.com <![CDATA[WHEN FASHION MEETS SPORTS: MEET SOLID GRIT]]> 2016-10-21T17:25:12+00:00 2016-10-21T17:20:00+00:00 https://www.ifitu.co.uk/personal-stylist/News/2016/10/when-fashion-meets-sports-meet-solid-grit IFITU info@ifitu.co.uk https://www.ifitu.co.uk/ Along with the official fashion week marathon closure, an undeniable truth has to be finally acknowledged: sporty fashions remain influential.&nbsp; Let the catwalk alone, street style has never ignored a relaxed, yet personal touch of sweatpants or spats. &nbsp; While casually browsing through Instagram, we discovered just recently introduced compression &amp; performance spats for women by Solid Grit. A little update to everyone: Solid Grit is a fitness &ndash; focused brand launched and brought to life by two entrepreneurs who have been into physical health and nutrition for the last 10 years. So where&rsquo;s the fashion part you&rsquo;d ask? &nbsp; &nbsp; Finding the right pair of leggings for women sometimes can become an unattainable task partly because of different body types and partly due to insufficient product attributes. That&rsquo;s why we want to introduce you&nbsp;the leggings by Solid Grit that are high &ndash; waisted and (breathe in) non &ndash; transparent while showing off the most sought after colors: black, pink and white. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; The unique set of design appeals to women that are conscious about what they choose to wear close to their body. What sets Solid Grit against other brands is the fact that due to extreme durability and true compression, leggings magically adapt to different body shapes and enhance the sleek and personal touch that the brand creates. If physical attributes and exceptional design are not enough, then the country of origin should appeal to conscious fashion lovers as sportswear apparel by Solid Grit is produced only in continental Europe. &nbsp; The Instagram divas were truly impressed by temperature regulation&nbsp;(who wouldn&rsquo;t want your spats to keep you warm when the weather cools down and vice versa) and true compression features. IFITU personal stylists know that the eye &ndash; catching design will not let you down: the visibility is guaranteed. Therefore, we do not want to&nbsp;keep you on waiting for the&nbsp;perfect leggings: Solid Grit has made a Kickstarter campaign to tell you more about themselves. &nbsp; We are leaving the praises behind and urging you to visit the Kickstarter campaign by Solid Grit since the early bird treats are coming to an end: &nbsp; https://www.kickstarter.com/projects/muezz/solid-grit/description &nbsp; The countdown is real and Solid Grit will end their campaign on Sunday, so if you want that watchful Instagram picture with the leggings, you&rsquo;d better hurry up. 50 hours to go! ---- Pictures: Solid Grit <![CDATA[PERFECT PANTSUITS]]> 2016-09-25T16:00:39+00:00 2016-09-25T16:00:00+00:00 https://www.ifitu.co.uk/personal-stylist/outfit/2016/09/perfect-pantsuits IFITU info@ifitu.co.uk https://www.ifitu.co.uk/ Pantsuits are not just for men nowadays! Women are now able to rock this trend with upmost grace and elegance while looking cool and current. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; It&rsquo;s clear the masculine and feminine line has become blurred overtime with women donning boyfriend jeans and oversized shirts (another fall/winter 2016 trend). And now this fall/winter 2016 women&rsquo;s pant suits have been seen on runways over the world. However, the pantsuit trend has been updated with funkier styles and elements to it. &nbsp; Pinstripes, oversized sweaters, chunky boots and even plaid checks, shown in Ralph Lauren Runways, have been added to update this trend. Some designers also opted for a more risqu&eacute; option of sequined bras underneath blazers instead of shirts. &nbsp; The trick to buying your perfect pant suit is to find your perfect fit- it needs to be tailored to your size. Alternatively, you can experiment with trendy oversized pant suits or cropped styles, in which case it does not need to fit perfectly. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; As usual, the celebrity world has joined the paint suit trend with icons like Kiera Knightley, Zendaya, and Queen B wearing this stylish cool trend to Awards shows and even Basketball games. Now although most of us will not be wearing the pant suit to a basketball game anytime soon, the possibilities for this trend are endless! &nbsp; ---- Pictures: &nbsp;asos.com, newlook.com, boohoo.com, topshop.com, yoox.com, pinterest.com <![CDATA[METALLIC MANIA]]> 2016-09-24T19:01:40+00:00 2016-09-24T19:00:00+00:00 https://www.ifitu.co.uk/personal-stylist/outfit/2016/09/metallic-mania IFITU info@ifitu.co.uk https://www.ifitu.co.uk/ This fall and winter metallic has created mania within the fashion world; celebrities, bloggers, models and moguls are all rocking this trend, and you could be next! &nbsp; &nbsp; Metallic outerwear, accessories and footwear have entirely been created with impeccable style in mind for daywear, eveningwear and everything in between. &nbsp; Embracing metallic mania can be subtly done a number of ways; either by including a dash of metallic with your accessories or metallic detailing or embroidery in your clothing. &nbsp; &nbsp; You can alternatively make a statement and go all out with a fabulous metallic dress. You can even add a pop of colour to your metallic pieces or keep it simple with classic neutral colours to balance this look out- the choice is entirely up to you. &nbsp; When it came to major and understated fashion shows, metallic were in tops, jackets, skirts, dresses, shoes (the list goes on) and usually shined down runways in copper, gold and silver. Dolce &amp; Gabbana&rsquo;s golden metallic coats, Fendi&rsquo;s silver metallic skirts, and Chanel&rsquo;s metallic skirt suit were all praised pieces from their collections and can be incorporated and add spice to everyday style. While Vivienne Westwood took it a step further with a metallic gold puffed coat. &nbsp; &nbsp; Not only was metallic all over the runways but the Oscars too (Leonardo DiCaprio finally winning an Oscar was not the only news worthy piece from this year!). Celebrities such as Selena Gomez, Kate Hudson, Ashley Madekwe, Margot Robbie and Naomi Campbell all made headlines with this trend perfectly. &nbsp; &nbsp; If you love this trend but want it without the pricey tag, you are in luck - high street retailers from ASOS to New Look are selling metallic everything.

However, biker chic really hit the big time when John Travolta and Olivia Newton John turned greaser culture into a classic musical where all the characters had amazing style. &nbsp; We all remember the scene when Sandy ditched her good-girl image for a chic and sexy biker girl (one of the greatest movie moments without a doubt). Her edgy biker style and stance was envied by every girl and desired by every guy. So if you still are as hopelessly devoted to the biker trend as so many of us are then you&rsquo;re in luck this season! &nbsp; This season the biker jacket is a must-have in every wardrobe! The edgy jacket is known to release your inner rebel, providing an edge to your outfit, while being a great transitional piece to layer with almost anything- from comfy t-shirts to knits and even dresses. &nbsp; &nbsp; On the runways, designers including Chloe, Etro, Gucci, Alexander McQueen, etc. paraded everything from leather biker jackets to leather trousers and boxy shapes. Some designers even revamped the classic biker jacket- Valentino added edgy studs, Diesel Black Gold included shimmering sequins and Fausto Puglisi played around with interesting pearl decorations and patterns. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; While some designers such as Chloe were more inspired by real-life biker fashion, others such as Elie Saab and Anthony Vaccarello showed a more romantic rock and roll chic with biker jackets layered over dreamy dresses and skirts. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; It is obvious the biker trend is huge, even a museum (FIT) debuted an exhibition in 2014 tracing the history and evolution of the biker jacket. &nbsp; No wonder why Jacqui Markham, Topshop&rsquo;s head of design is calling biker fashion &ldquo;a perennial fashion classic&rdquo;! &nbsp; ---- Pictures: vogue.com, vogue.fr, fashiongonerogue.com, asos.com, topshop.com, newlook.com, glamorous.com, boohoo.com, coggles.com, yoox.com&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <![CDATA[THE VELVET COMEBACK]]> 2016-09-12T17:26:46+00:00 2016-09-12T17:30:00+00:00 https://www.ifitu.co.uk/personal-stylist/outfit/2016/09/the-velvet-comeback IFITU info@ifitu.co.uk https://www.ifitu.co.uk/ When most of us think of velvet we immediately think of the Gothic, Renaissance and Georgian eras, some even think vampires! But how times have changed this fall/autumn as velvet is undertaking a renaissance of its own. &nbsp; Indeed, nothing says vintage luxury more like velvet due to it&rsquo;s rich history, and now designers have updated it to recreate amazing on-trend looks with more colours, styles and items than imaginable. Velvet has undeniably reigned the runways this season on catwalks at Gucci, Fendi, Prada and Dries Van Noten (the list goes on). &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; With so many recreations of this fabric now; dresses, jumpsuits, blazers, midis and even shoes and bags, it can be a bit daunting to style this trend yourself. However, if you stick to deep colours, think navy, black, maroon, etc. and make sure you&rsquo;re not head to toe in velvet, you will look nothing less than fabulous. &nbsp; Another thing to keep in mind is the care and maintenance of the fabric, velvet needs to be well ironed before worn as creases or folds will bring down your look. Keep in mind velvet is a material that requires a sleek appearance to look amazing. &nbsp; As velvet is such a bold statement already, no need to go overboard with the accessories. You need accessories which will compliment your look rather than overpower it. Play it smart- if you have a high neckline you can opt for statement bracelets and chandelier earrings while a low neckline calls for a layered necklace. &nbsp; &nbsp; As well as ruling the runways, velvet has made an impact on the celebrity fashion world too. Everyone from Cara Delevingne and Elizabeth Olsen to Kate Hudson and even Princess Diana! &nbsp; &nbsp; This trend is truly the definition of vintage elegance. &nbsp; ---- Pictures: asos.com, boohoo.com, topshop.com, newlook.com, pinterest.com&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; <![CDATA[BACK TO BASICS: THE HOODIE]]> 2016-09-11T10:01:23+00:00 2016-09-11T10:00:00+00:00 https://www.ifitu.co.uk/personal-stylist/outfit/2016/09/back-to-basics-the-hoodie IFITU info@ifitu.co.uk https://www.ifitu.co.uk/ While most of us love playing dress up in classic body con dresses, tulle skirts and even chic lace tops, sometimes there&rsquo;s nothing better than throwing on our favourite hoodie and facing the world! &nbsp; &nbsp; Interestingly, although hoodies were first produced for New York laborers that had to bare the freezing cold temperatures (fun fact), they soon enough made their way into the sports world, the rap and hip-hop world in the 90s, and even to the streets in everyday life. Not only that, but this season they have well and truly made their stamp on the fashion world in a memorable way! &nbsp; Everyone owns one. What&rsquo;s not to love about them? They&rsquo;re comfortable, easy and warm especially in the upcoming cold seasons. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Now, many of you may believe hoodies give off more of a chilled vibe than a chic one and should never be styled with anything less than jeans, leggings or tracksuits, however, ignore your preconceptions! We here at IFITU think you should mix up your style with this go-to piece of clothing. &nbsp; To achieve a laid back luxe look you can opt for a comfortable oversized hoodie paired with an A-line skirt. You can even add a pair of statement heels whether it be knee high boots or lace up heels for more of an evening look. &nbsp; So, if you are all for this comfortable yet cool trend you are in luck as the hoodie has made it onto runways all over the world this season including Chloe, Balenciaga, Alexander Wang and even Fenty X Puma by Rihanna. &nbsp; This fall/winter it is definitely all about elevated sportswear and street wear with hoodies being at the center of attention. And on the runways the divide between smart and casual clothing was very vague to say the least, so much so that mixing the humble hoodie and chic items of clothing is highly praised and even encouraged. &nbsp; &nbsp; ---- Pictures: boohoo.com, asos.com, newlook.com, topshop.com, pinterest.com&nbsp; <![CDATA[SHEER PERFECTION]]> 2016-09-05T17:45:17+00:00 2016-09-05T17:40:00+00:00 https://www.ifitu.co.uk/personal-stylist/outfit/2016/09/sheer-perfection IFITU info@ifitu.co.uk https://www.ifitu.co.uk/ Sheer details were at the forefront of spring&rsquo;s ss16 biggest shows, offering a fresh and edgy take on spring dressing, and it has of course continued in the fall/winter 2016 season. &nbsp; &nbsp; Jason Wu&rsquo;s pristine organza inserts looked fresh at Hugo BOSS, Riccardo Tisci&rsquo;s see-through lace had gothic charm at Givenchy and Marchesa&rsquo;s mesh-infused evening wear delivered a dose of serious punk-appeal. &nbsp; Christian Dior&rsquo;s soft focus led the dozens of tributes to sheer beauty, with almost half a collection dedicated to misty organza&rsquo;s and foamy chiffons. &nbsp; &nbsp; This trend will be at the forefront of designers, retailers and fashionista&rsquo;s for a while, and the first thing we here at IFITU suggest you invest in this season is black sheer clothing and the sheer tulle skirt. &nbsp; Although we are not strangers to these two styles, they have been reincarnated to come in even more different styles, shapes and sizes (we are simply spoilt!). &nbsp; &nbsp; Now, don&rsquo;t worry if you are skeptical about this trend as you may think it will cross the line of sexy to provocative- The trick to working this dreamy trend will be in the layering, building up opacity for a look that&rsquo;s suitable for real life. And if in doubt you can always stick to sophisticated sheer sleeves which is just as fabulous! &nbsp; You may also be thinking this trend is only good in the summer months, however, with clever layering you are still able to wear this daring and chic look this fall and winter (even though the temperature has dropped!). &nbsp; If you are aiming for gothic charm you can simply add a velvet jacket or coat over your sheer tulle dress to avoid the typical cold British weather. Whereas, if you want to channel everyday sophisticated sheer you can add a cashmere scarf, thick tights and knee high boots to your ensemble. &nbsp; Carrie Bradshaw, Marylin Monroe, and even Beyonce have been lovers of this trend; past, present and future. Could this be the perfect time for you to join the sheer perfection trend this fall/winter?

The classic denim staple has been revamped and is now the new autumn/winter 2016 fashion trend. &nbsp; FASHION... Fashion means many different things to different people. To one person it could mean simply the comfort of looking and feeling fabulous in designer, on trend gear. But to others it is an expression of the human spirit- a form of true and pure art. Art is indeed a necessity in the world and to the people that sustain it which is illustrated by the ever so changing trends in fashion. Trends seem to change as much as the wind changes direction. But one trend that everyone seems to simply love and that never goes out of style is DENIM! An absolute classic! &nbsp; &nbsp; Now, we all remember when too much denim wasn&rsquo;t so fabulous and was very tricky to pull off- think Justin Timberlake and Britney Spears in 2001! The previously restricted fabric was hard to pull off as it has to be styled and balanced out perfectly. &nbsp; But how times have changed! Denim is not only restricted to jeans and jackets; it&rsquo;s in every incarnation possible. Dresses, dungarees, shirts, skirts, jackets, tunics and even shoes have all been on the runway this season. And it can be worn by everyone, whatever style, size or gender you are! It is definitely one of the hot autumn/winter 2016 trends. &nbsp; Endless designers have expressed their love for denim, including Gucci, Chloe, Fendi, Dolce and Gabbana and beyond! &nbsp; &nbsp; There is no denying that we are in the midst of an exceptionally adventurous and exciting denim moment. Whatever day it is, whatever mood you are in, there is always a denim staple just waiting for you. Basically there is denim for every time, occasion and season. &nbsp; This season, denim has become so diverse and of course desirable. And whatever it is, we want it, and we want it all! It is evident that designers have had a ball experimenting with this classic fabric and I&rsquo;m sure none of us are complaining! The outcome is nothing but fabulous, Take the illustrated denim trend; it is edgy, fun and vibrant. And the idea of personalising denim will with no doubt create a lasting impact upon this statement fabric. &nbsp; &nbsp; As all you fashionistas know, when runway trends extend to street style and the high street, it has truly taken off. And to no surprise denim has made it. So don&rsquo;t worry if you don&rsquo;t think you can stretch to designer gear. You don&rsquo;t need to spend a small fortune for this beautiful trend. High street fashion has always been a strong supporter of the denim trend and has endless denim items available to buy (without the massive price tag!). Topshop, ASOS, Bohoo, New Look and many others has released a variety of denim items, all of which are affordable to the average woman.&nbsp; &nbsp; Celebrity fashion has additionally indulged in this denim trend. The gorgeous actress Kate Hudson, superstar Rihanna, and even reality star Kourtney Kardashian have all modelled the ever so disputed double denim. &nbsp; Denim is obviously not a new trend- it has been around for decades and it has always been in demand. But don&rsquo;t just take it from us. We all remember the iconic show Sex and the city- the show that was cantered around fashion in New York (well fashion and many other things!). &nbsp; &nbsp; I&rsquo;m sure one scene will come to mind where the beautiful Sarah Jessica Parker, playing the fashionista Carrie Bradshaw fell over in the mud while trying to get hands on with her man! Her iconic denim overall is of course nothing less than what she expects; fabulous (without all the mud!), showing that nothing really has changed over the years. &nbsp; Well, there you have it- denim has and always will be a fashion staple; a classic. However, this season it has been revamped and put on every runway you can possibly think of! &nbsp; As Edi Kissko, the spokeswoman of The Gap says &ldquo;Fashion denim is Cyclical&rdquo;. And I certainly agree with that. The days of denim dreaming will be never ending, so run to your closet, grab your most fabulous denim piece and head out to have an even more fabulous day&hellip;if it&rsquo;s possible! &nbsp; ---- Pictures: asos.com, topshop.com, zalando.co.uk, glamorous.com, newlook.com, boohoo.com, pinterest.com <![CDATA[EFFORTLESS FASHION BLOGGING: MUST-HAVE TOOL OUT NOW]]> 2016-07-24T11:59:26+00:00 2016-07-24T11:00:00+00:00 https://www.ifitu.co.uk/personal-stylist/Fashion/2016/07/effortless-fashion-blogging-must-have-tool-out-now IFITU info@ifitu.co.uk https://www.ifitu.co.uk/ Either you already have a blog on which you share your daily fashion inspirations or you are just someone who continuously aspires to be a fashion blogger, things are not easy. The digital blogging space is crowded, therefore, not only coherent personal image, but high standard content plays a significant role. &nbsp; Whilst global fashion retailers place their bets on those who have highest social media followings or highest number of monthly visitors on the blogs, there is an undeniable gap for bloggers who are willing to dedicate their knowledge and time for content that influences. &nbsp;Such content should truly give value both for visitors and anyone who would be willing to establish partnerships for sponsored content. &nbsp; Major influencers making between $1 million to $3 million directly from a personal blog can truly take blogging as a full &ndash; time responsibility. However, for those that are just taking their first steps in the blogging journey, a number of challenges and burdens occur on the way. &nbsp; One of the most common obstacles identified by the mid-tier bloggers is surprisingly the content creation. Whilst it is rather easy to snap a photo of a new bag or a detox tea that &ldquo;made me lose so much weight in such a short time&rdquo;, it is, however, more complicated to advice readers on what to wear. Take huge blogs that already became major e-commerce retailers as an example and you will truly understand that daily outfit inspirations and style advice are essential. &nbsp; Fashion bloggers who started their fashion career online seem to struggle in finding ways on how to monetise their style advice. &nbsp; Therefore, when we accidentally came across a startup that seems to tackle the major issues in the blogging industry, we became more curious than ever before. &nbsp; Last week &ldquo;Share2Style&rdquo; launched their pre-registration for the tool that is set to make the blogging game more efficient and more rewarding. The platform for style bloggers features a number of global apparel industry players whose products they can feature on their blogs. &nbsp; &nbsp; What makes &ldquo;Share2Style&rdquo; so innovative is that they not only provide affiliated products, but offer various templates to make the content visually appealing. &ldquo;Fashion bloggers currently find Photoshop or other content editors too much of a hassle. That&rsquo;s why in &ldquo;Share2Style&rdquo; we give bloggers visually appealing templates in which they can drag and drop our affiliated products. At the end of the day, it takes less than 5 minutes to create a collage that can illustrate trends, outfits or inspirations that are trending at the moment&rdquo;, Kamile Kaselyte, Chief Marketing Officer at Share2Style explained. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Another thing that differentiates &ldquo;Share2Style&rdquo; toolbox is easy and efficient export of collages with affiliated products to the influencer&rsquo;s blog. As Rimas Maliauskas, CEO of Share2Style, claims that not only the simple export plays a role, but the given possibility for fashionistas to track their progress. He names the commissions and engagement tracking crucial in terms of motivating bloggers to post more frequently and generate more income. &nbsp; &nbsp; It seems that this startup is truly a beginning of something revolutionary, therefore, we encourage you to pre-register and grow your fashion influence with people who have analysed the ins and outs of the industry. &nbsp; Pre &ndash; register for a limited time only: www.share2style.com ---- Pictures: share2style.com <![CDATA[THOSE WHITE SHOES: THOSE NEW BEGINNINGS ]]> 2016-07-16T08:23:37+00:00 2016-07-16T08:20:00+00:00 https://www.ifitu.co.uk/personal-stylist/outfit/2016/07/those-white-shoes-those-new-beginnings IFITU info@ifitu.co.uk https://www.ifitu.co.uk/ When we first spotted the super &ndash; chic Giuseppe Zanotti Firewing sandals in white, we knew it would last.

However, the business aspects needed some freshness and Mr Gobbetti from C&eacute;line will take over overall business management in yearly 2017. &nbsp; In the meanwhile, we are sharing some of the most stunning Burberry moments that Mr Bailey has made possible. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Pictures: pinterest.com&nbsp; <![CDATA[OFF - THE - SHOULDER TOP: YOUR FASHION COMEBACK]]> 2016-07-10T08:43:26+00:00 2016-07-10T08:40:00+00:00 https://www.ifitu.co.uk/personal-stylist/outfit/2016/07/off-the-shoulder-top-your-fashion-comeback IFITU info@ifitu.co.uk https://www.ifitu.co.uk/ High summer sets its own style and fashion rules and even seeing the prettiest couture dresses; it is still hard to imagine how could you pull them on when it&rsquo;s boiling hot. &nbsp; Why investing in dresses or skirts, when you can easily find the most stylish tops to be matched with your high &ndash; waisted jeans? It will ease the process of creating multiple top &ndash; notch looks and will not leave you having completely run out of money. &nbsp; Whilst one &ndash; shoulder tops work best for street style outfits, you can easily get away with one &ndash; shoulder top and a classy black jacket for a more official occasion. &nbsp; Get the high summer vibes by watching our carefully handpicked inspirations that will make you dream about off &ndash; the - shoulder tops. &nbsp; # A BIT MORE CLASSY &nbsp; Off &ndash; the &ndash; shoulder tops can look quite classy when in darker colors and paired with black basics. &nbsp; &nbsp; # FOR YOUR CASUAL STROLL &nbsp; These kinds of tops are ideal for your outfits when you prefer to casually stroll in the city.

From glamorous Maison Valentino collection that had William Shakespear&rsquo;s quotes embroidered on the see &ndash; through dresses to the haute couture debut of Vetements. &nbsp; It seems that Paris never looked shinier and it appears that even though fashion industry is seeing a major decline in sales, no one will give up easily. &nbsp; A number of shows struck our minds with fresh and mesmerizing ideas. Jean Paul Gaultier once again came back to the nature of haute couture: luxury and glamour. Yet, it seems that his sartorial journey took us back to where we belong: to the world of nature. &nbsp; When Viktor and Rolf wowed us with a Coke sweatshirt that resembled the bigger meaning of their collection, we couldn&rsquo;t agree more that Paris is vibrant and mesmerizing again. The mix of old and new has made the collection dramatic and stunning at the same time. Eventually, this is fashion the way it should be. &nbsp; Finally, Chanel gave us the privilege to be back at Rue Cambon and see the staff working on couture garments while models were hitting the catwalk. &nbsp; The overall message is very clear: fashion will fight back to terrorism, political instability and violence. It will find its own way to the hearts of consumers.&nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; ---- Pictures: vogue.com&nbsp; <![CDATA[TOP COVERUPS: HIDE FROM THE SUN AND PAPARAZZI]]> 2016-07-06T06:23:54+00:00 2016-07-06T06:20:00+00:00 https://www.ifitu.co.uk/personal-stylist/outfit/2016/07/top-coverups-hide-from-the-sun-and-paparazzi IFITU info@ifitu.co.uk https://www.ifitu.co.uk/ Beach season is already open, yet it is not clear whether you are super prepared for it.

Tons of articles have been written about the motif that first appeared in the public eye in 1920s. Since then, it has never left the wardrobes of the most stylish fashion influencers. Indeed, those who weren&rsquo;t afraid to risk a little. &nbsp; Although some may associate the leopard print with some rather negative connotations, we have to clarify that is all down to you. You can mix it in small doses or replicate the style icon status with outfits entirely in the print. Therefore, personal stylists have gathered the style files from top fashion influencers. Check out the way Kate Moss or Georgia May Jagger go wild with leopard print. &nbsp; Miroslava Duma enhances her fashion week outfit with a leopard print coat. That combination with velvet dress is the modern way to approach this animal print trend. &nbsp; &nbsp; When Kendall Jenner rocks her leopard print coat while shopping, we know that this hype is still on. &nbsp; &nbsp; It is not essential to dedicate the whole outfit to leopard fashion staples. You can simply incorporate a pair of ballerinas with the print. Oh, and plus the tiny belt. &nbsp; &nbsp; Or perhaps one of the best-selling Louis Vuitton scarves will do the trick? &nbsp; &nbsp; Victoria Beckham carries a sharp leopard print bag that brings a focus to her well &ndash; planned outfit. &nbsp; &nbsp; And guess who is the biggest leopard print lover? Kate Moss, obviously. We still remember how personal stylists were hunting this leopard print coat from Topshop all over London. &nbsp; &nbsp; So if you were convinced, browse and surprise everyone around you. ---- Pictures: topshop.com, pinterest.com, asos.com, houseoffraser.co.uk, coggles.com <![CDATA[TOP 5 OUTFIT INSPIRATIONS: WHEN IT’S REALLY HOT]]> 2016-06-24T19:58:09+00:00 2016-06-24T19:00:00+00:00 https://www.ifitu.co.uk/personal-stylist/outfit/2016/06/top-5-outfit-inspirations-when-its-really-hot IFITU info@ifitu.co.uk https://www.ifitu.co.uk/ While Los Angeles is burning hot with 40 degrees Celsius, you need to prepare for the upcoming heat in London as well. It gets a little bit tricky to plan the outfit that on the one hand protects you from the sunlight, but on the other hand is appropriate for a more official occasion. &nbsp; We are taking the top style inspirations from celebrities that have to survive thousands of press events and tours when the weather is boiling hot. Therefore, before you go outside, have a look at our tips &amp; tricks for successful outfit planning in these adverse weather conditions (yes, darlings, personal stylists are literally burning in the office even with the AC on). &nbsp; # OOTD 1: &nbsp;ALL WHITE EVERYTHING &nbsp; Skip all your black outfits and bring in everything what&rsquo;s white. &nbsp; &nbsp; # OOTD 2: YOUR MUST &ndash; HAVE BLOUSE &nbsp; Loose blouse is your new summer must &ndash; have item. However, pick the one that has some details on it: from symbolic pockets to lace embroidery. Notice how chic it looks when paired with slim trousers. &nbsp; &nbsp; # OOTD 3: THAT SUPER SHORT DRESS &nbsp; Rose Huntington &ndash; Whiteley stuns us with a short dress in geometrical prints. Where&rsquo;s the trick? Even though it&rsquo;s extremely short, it seems that this type of dress can be worn on any occasion. Therefore, choose a dress that looks voluminous, has some catching details or prints and you&rsquo;re good to go. &nbsp; &nbsp; #OOTD 4: BOHO CHIC &nbsp; The more we look at Hailey Baldwin, the more we love her (especially when she pulled on those gorgeous outfits for date nights with Justin Bieber). Just look how stylish and summery she is with that off - shoulder top and a mini skirt. &nbsp; &nbsp; # OOTD 5: SLEEK LOOK &nbsp; When it&rsquo;s hot and humid, go for something that is long and draping. Kendall Jenner looks just fabulous with her loose; yet short tank top and a long ethereal skirt. &nbsp; &nbsp; While it&rsquo;s boiling hot, browse inside and wear outside. ---- Pictures: topshop.com, pinterest.com&nbsp; <![CDATA[BREAKING: THE WAR AT YSL IS NOT OVER]]> 2016-06-23T20:26:30+00:00 2016-06-23T20:30:00+00:00 https://www.ifitu.co.uk/personal-stylist/Fashion/2016/06/breaking-the-war-at-ysl-is-not-over IFITU info@ifitu.co.uk https://www.ifitu.co.uk/ Just when things got back to the regular pace at Yves Saint Laurent fashion house, their former creative director Hedi Slimane filed a suit against Kering. &nbsp; While for Kering (one of the biggest luxury goods conglomerates) Saint Laurent is one of the best performing brands, the matter will be taken seriously. &nbsp; Yesterday even the fashion insiders were shocked when they found out that Mr Slimane is asking for the non &ndash; compete provision to be brought back in his departure contract. The following provision would limit him from joining top luxury fashion houses that are competing with Saint Laurent. &nbsp; The part we still cannot fully comprehend, is why would Hedi Slimane want a contract to limit him from working at the most prestigious houses. It is even more shocking when we know that Mr Slimane would be highly welcomed to join any fashion brand on Planet Earth. There were speculations that Hedi would replace Chanel&rsquo;s Karl Lagerfeld or that he was looking for investment in New York to launch his own label. Yet, it now seems that new collections by Slimane won&rsquo;t reach us very soon. &nbsp; However, it seems that there was something more to it. Why would Saint Laurent delete all the posts from Slimane&rsquo;s era from Instagram? Was there major disagreement happening&nbsp;that lead to Hedi&rsquo;s exit without any explanations and further comments? &nbsp; We are leaving you with current facts to process and in the meantime we are revisiting Hedi Slimane&rsquo;s era at Saint Laurent. To us, he was the one and only to reinvent Saint Laurent and bring the vibes no one expected from such Parisian brand. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; ---- Pictures: pinterest.com &nbsp; <![CDATA[LEGGINGS: WHEN THEY DO LOOK GOOD]]> 2016-06-22T19:06:38+00:00 2016-06-22T19:10:00+00:00 https://www.ifitu.co.uk/personal-stylist/outfit/2016/06/leggings-when-they-do-look-good IFITU info@ifitu.co.uk https://www.ifitu.co.uk/ &ldquo;Sweatpants are a sign of defeat. You lost control of your life so you bought sweatpants&rdquo; &ndash; Karl Lagerfeld &nbsp; We are definitely not claiming that we are going to argue with the king of fashion, yet there may have been times when leggings (or, sweatpants) looked good. By saying that, we mean those moments when leggings were well integrated into the whole outfit and did not look as a sign of personal defeat. &nbsp; Our list won&rsquo;t include dozens of pictures of celebrities throwing out rubbish next to their homes. Surprisingly, we will give you our style hacks on how to incorporate those sweatpants into your everyday outfits. &nbsp; CHANGE THE TEXTURE &nbsp; One way to look at the sweatpants is to reinvent them once again. In case you wanted to make them more glamorous, get the ones in silk. Kate Beckinsale looks both chic &amp; casual wearing sweatpants in white. Would you say that she has lost control of her life? Definitely not. &nbsp; &nbsp; SWEATPANTS + HIGH FASHION &nbsp; Another viable example is Gigi Hadid wearing white sweatpants at the Balmain Fashion Show during PFW (Paris Fashion Week). The luxurious Balmain jacket paired with all-white-everything outfit makes the look so modern. Plus, we are 100% confident that she feels much more comfortable than rocking a short &amp; tight Balmain dress with 5-inch heels. &nbsp; &nbsp; PERFECT FOR FASHION WEEK &nbsp; Fashion weeks are not meant for boring outfits or simple black dresses. They are meant for fashion gals willing to show the best of their creativity. So even Harper&rsquo;s Bazaar does not argue that this look with sweatpants is definitely worth taking pictures of. &nbsp; &nbsp; WHEN AIRPORT LOOKS ARE CHIC &nbsp; Oh, and Gigi Hadid strikes again. She makes sweatpants look chic again. The reason behind it, is probably because she pairs them with black heels and even darker celebrity &ndash; style sunglasses. The crop top somewhat resonates the black line on the side of the leggings. Therefore, while putting sweatpants on, please plan it beforehand. &nbsp; &nbsp; Finally, here&rsquo;s what we found online that might create looks as good as above. --- Pictures: asos.com, topshop.com, booho.com, zalando.co.uk, pinterest.com&nbsp; <![CDATA[FROM CELEBRITY TO DESIGNER: THE PATH TO SUCCESS]]> 2016-06-21T18:32:33+00:00 2016-06-21T18:30:00+00:00 https://www.ifitu.co.uk/personal-stylist/Fashion/2016/06/from-celebrity-to-designer-the-path-of-success IFITU info@ifitu.co.uk https://www.ifitu.co.uk/ It seems that fashion world is not easy to conquer; yet it gets slightly easier if you already have a name. A name that may be even more followed and talked about than an established brand with healthy sales in the market. So say &lsquo;hi&rsquo; to those who made it to the top. &nbsp; Today we decided to share the bits and bites of famous celebrities that launched their fashion collections or collaborations. Some of them turned out to be a major success whilst some other celebrity brands went to what fashion experts called &ldquo;style disaster of the year&rdquo;. However, we want to focus on celebrities that left a remarkable heritage to the industry, or at least made something more sustainable than a fast fashion collection for Target (excuse us). &nbsp; # VICTORIA BECKHAM: &nbsp; While her fame initially grew from being a singer at our beloved British band &ldquo;Spice Girls&rdquo;, she probably cannot compare her current earnings from fashion to back those days when she sang at St Pancras Renaissance Hotel. &nbsp;Even though she started out her label &lsquo;Victoria Beckham&rsquo; back in 2009 with a team consisting of three people, she now oversees over 100 fashion professionals in her headquarters. The success is major: the brand is sought &ndash; after both online and in physical stores, a number of stores were opened globally (from United Kingdom to China) and revenues skyrocketed simultaneously. We are sharing the top moments from her fashion journey: &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; # KANYE WEST: &nbsp; You may laugh or not, yet Kanye&rsquo;s &lsquo;Yeezy&rsquo; was one of the most successful brands one has ever made. His sneakers were sold out even before they came out and you could only find them on E-bay re-sold at a price tag of roughly $10, 000, whereas the original price was around $300. Sneakers were not enough for Kanye, so he brought a clothing line to life as well. Then you may ask what&rsquo;s so great about it? Generally speaking the timing was right and the audience was targeted correctly. Kanye reached out those who admired his personal style and created a must-have item with a little bit of help from Kim Kardashian and social media, obviously. Have a look on Kanye&rsquo;s fashion invention: &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; #3 MARY KATE &amp; ASHLEY OLSEN: &nbsp; The twins previously known as top actresses debuted in fashion long time ago and now they have a fashion empire valued at about $1 billion. Impressive, right? The main line Olsens are running is called &lsquo;The Row&rsquo; and it is sold at the major online retailers (Net &ndash; A &ndash; Portrer, for example). It&rsquo;s very minimal and monochromatic, yet very appealing for those who want an&nbsp;understated touch of fashion.

It has always been a major debate: is it something that has to be continuously worked on or perhaps is a natural gift? &nbsp; Yet, fashion insiders (take personal stylists per se) will always tell you one thing only: if you are caught looking careless once, you are out of the game. Therefore, this time we want you to focus on mastering the chic &amp; up &ndash; to - date street style that enhances your chances of earning the &lsquo;style icon&rsquo; badge. Whenever you are and whatever you do: keep your fashion standards high. &nbsp; So here we are bullet pointing the style hacks for your discovery of the street style art. We are constantly getting inspired by emerging cities and tons of stylish gals mingling around, therefore, keep your eyes on our list. &nbsp; LOOK #1 &nbsp; There a few styling details hiding behind this precious look. The unique mix of textures: lightweight silk and heavier denim; delivers the needed balance in the outfit. What is more, the lengths are playing an impressive role here: shortened jeans and a tucked in shirt eventually lengthen your figure. Lastly, it may seem that heels and the bag are not something major, but they are actually the best fit for a casual stroll. Why? Because they fit so well that they become somewhat invisible. &nbsp; &nbsp; LOOK #2 &nbsp; We cannot get enough of the vibes of this particular style choice. The jacket is definitely oversized, yet the trousers are extremely fit. You can also see that the outfit has been carefully planned: the shades of orange can be spotted even on the season&rsquo;s &lsquo;It&rsquo; sneakers. Whilst the jacket is plain, the pants are filled with a great print. No wonder why &lsquo;Vogue&rsquo; has featured this picture a number of times on their pages both online and offline. &nbsp; &nbsp; LOOK #3 &nbsp; What&rsquo;s so cool about it? While we almost answer &lsquo;basically everything&rsquo;, the best thing about this outfit is the ability to accessorize and make classics look modern. The silk scarf is wrapped precisely and jewelry is put so well together. The golden rule: if you are not wearing one huge accessory, you can combine a few smaller ones. &nbsp; &nbsp; LOOK #4 &nbsp; One theme only: Ancient Greece vibes. Valentino gladiator sandals + ornamental skirt + cozy sweater + huge Mulberry = Can you look even better? The secret to this stunning look is that it&rsquo;s minimal, but not quite plain. &nbsp; &nbsp; Since it&rsquo;s been way too much talking, get on your shoes and shop our strictly curated pieces for best street style looks. ---- Pictures: asos.com, pinterest.com&nbsp; <![CDATA[EMMA WATSON: STYLE FILE REVISIT]]> 2016-06-19T20:25:08+00:00 2016-06-19T20:20:00+00:00 https://www.ifitu.co.uk/personal-stylist/outfit/2016/06/emma-watson-style-file-revisit IFITU info@ifitu.co.uk https://www.ifitu.co.uk/ While London seems particularly busy around Palace Theatre at about 7pm, we become extremely curious if perhaps there&rsquo;s another fashion show going on. However, when we see &nbsp;&ldquo;keep the secrets&rdquo; sign above and the proudly written letters &ldquo;Harry Potter And The Cursed Child&rdquo;, we finally become aware of what&rsquo;s going on. &nbsp; London&rsquo;s theatre hits the records with over 175,000 tickets sold overnight and no one will argue that it is the end (well, most probably) of the Harry Potter series. So what&rsquo;s in it for you, fashionista? &nbsp; Harry Potter books and films theoretically gave birth to one of the most acknowledged fashion and philanthropy icons: miss Emma Watson. Personal stylists here at IFITU have decided that it&rsquo;s about time to discuss the top outfits Emma has worn and to get influenced by her top fashion choices. &nbsp; With a net worth of $60 million and getting tons of Chanel outfits from Mr Lagerfeld, she is our style target today. As always, we are spoiling you with the tips &amp; tricks list for new shopping purchases. &nbsp; # ALMOST SIMPLE, BUT NOT QUITE YET &nbsp; We love the way Emma Watson styles her outfits: it seems that this almost classic dress would require some traditional accessories and black clutch. Even though her clutch is actually black and she has a bunch of rings on her fingers, she rather goes for rock&rsquo;n&rsquo;roll vibes. The bottom line: accessorize your outfit the way nobody expects. &nbsp; &nbsp; # A BIT LOOSE &nbsp; This is what we call ideal sense of style: Emma employs different shades of white. Plus, miss Watson is not afraid to put on a rather oversized coat that serves as a jacket during her new film premiere. We cannot take our eyes of her. &nbsp; &nbsp; # TUCK THE SHIRT IN &nbsp; We feel that you forget to tuck your white shirt inside the pants. Just take a look at how perfect it looks and remember this easy styling trick. &nbsp; &nbsp; # THE BELT THAT TRANSFORMS THE LOOK &nbsp; How about a cozy winter dress enhanced by the belt you love? If you have a few belts, we strongly advise you to play with them and make them a part of your outfits. &nbsp; &nbsp; # PANTS UNDER &nbsp; It&rsquo;s not necessary to replicate this particular red carper look, yet the advice here is very clear: try to incorporate pants underneath your dress. It might be quite difficult, yet it&rsquo;s worth giving a shot. &nbsp; &nbsp; Since we are positive that you have got some valuable insights to styling, now it&rsquo;s the right time to check what personal stylists have handpicked for you. ---- Pictures: asos.com, pinterest.com&nbsp; <![CDATA[SAINT LAURENT: THROUGH NEW LENSES]]> 2016-06-17T18:01:42+00:00 2016-06-17T18:00:00+00:00 https://www.ifitu.co.uk/personal-stylist/Fashion/2016/06/saint-laurent-through-new-lenses IFITU info@ifitu.co.uk https://www.ifitu.co.uk/ When Hedi Slimane (the former creative director) left the house of Yves Saint Laurent, it was a huge shock for the fashion industry. Even today it is still rather unclear why Mr Slimane has left the brand since he was the one to actually bring YSL back to profits. His era with dozens of artistic pictures and ideas has been deleted on the official YSL Instagram account and so it was the beginning of something new. No matter how here at IFITU we love Hedi&rsquo;s rock&rsquo;n&rsquo;roll vibes, we have to admit that we were extremely curious about what&rsquo;s going to happen next. &nbsp; When a campaign for Saint Laurent landed this week, we wanted to make sure we know what it will be all about. Therefore, we are sharing the bits and bytes of the campaign below. We are assuming that the new creative director Anthony Vaccarello will bring the sexy, strong, yet minimal design approach. Even though we can&rsquo;t really see the details of clothing well, yet it will be fresh. And that&rsquo;s what makes it exciting. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; ---- Pictures: Harper&rsquo;s Bazaar, racked.com, pinterest.com&nbsp; <![CDATA[CHOKERS: IS THERE A SUMMER WITHOUT THEM?]]> 2016-06-16T21:38:50+00:00 2016-06-16T20:40:00+00:00 https://www.ifitu.co.uk/personal-stylist/outfit/2016/06/chokers-is-there-a-summer-without-them IFITU info@ifitu.co.uk https://www.ifitu.co.uk/ Chokers since first appeared in Vogue have already become a must &ndash; have piece. &nbsp;You can see them incorporated to a number of street &ndash; style outfits and equally you will find them enhancing the haute couture pieces on the catwalk. &nbsp; So what&rsquo;s in it that catches the eye of the designers, trendsetters and photographers?

Not only they are stressful and challenging, but also the look plays a significant role towards your success. &nbsp; Imagine being interviewed by the fashion queen Anna Wintour and you&rsquo;ll understand that the first impression will define your future. It is something that always stays in the interviewers mind: how neat, confident and fashionable you are. Consequently, your knowledge and passion will be tested, but if you are not passing the first step, the journey is over. &nbsp; We are guessing that further explanations are unnecessary, so we are giving you a list of style hacks of dressing for an interview. From securing a position in finance sector to being cast for a film: your appearance matters. So here&rsquo;s the dream list: &nbsp; GO FOR THE LONG BLACK PANTS &nbsp; Be a little bit creative: black pants can be a little bit flared as well. Style it with a silk blouse and you are ready to go. &nbsp; &nbsp; GO FOR CLASSICS &nbsp; The look below is ideal for any possible interview on planet Earth. Midi skirt paired with a chic white blouse is nothing new, but you are not inventing wheels. Plus, a good pair of heels is a must. Choose a pair that won&rsquo;t cause you pain since you will be thinking only about your swollen feet. &nbsp; &nbsp; A LITLLE BIT MORE INNOVATIVE &nbsp; When trying to land yourself a job in the creative industry, dress a little bit more stylish &amp; think out of the box. Victoria Beckham wears a suit that is still perfectly suitable for an interview, yet shows a bit more fashion forward approach. &nbsp; &nbsp; NOT ONLY BLACK &nbsp; You can find yourself appropriate for an interview not only in black clothing. The common misunderstanding is that classics only come in black. A simple cut dress in navy or beige can be a good alternative to your beloved black suit combination. &nbsp; &nbsp; ---- Pictures: pinterest.com, asos.com&nbsp; <![CDATA[ASCOT: THOSE HATS AND THAT REFINERY]]> 2016-06-14T20:34:13+00:00 2016-06-14T20:30:00+00:00 https://www.ifitu.co.uk/personal-stylist/outfit/2016/06/ascot-those-hats-and-that-refinery IFITU info@ifitu.co.uk https://www.ifitu.co.uk/ Have you ever dreamt of getting an invite to the Royal Ascot Races? But even if you did, have you studied the demanding dress code that is expected at the day of the event? Well, it&rsquo;s kind of a challenge we must say. &nbsp; One of the personal stylists here at IFITU has showed us a picture of her client wearing a white Self &ndash; Portrait dress (correct: for the currently happening Royal Ascot 2016) and we immediately understood that we simply need to share some outfit ideas inspired by this royal event. &nbsp; However, what we are aiming to do today is a little fashion experiment in a way. &nbsp;We want to show you what the famous guests have worn and suggest you some looks that are probably 1/10000 of a price of the garments photographed and talked about at the event. &nbsp; What&rsquo;s the trick? We still think that you can look good even on a tight budget. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Now here&rsquo;s our selection of dresses that (in our opinion) won&rsquo;t look any worse than those above. &nbsp; (Disclosure: hats are not included) ---- Pictures: asos.com, pinterest.com&nbsp; <![CDATA[EXCLUSIVE JUMP INTO POOL: KENDALL + KYLIE SWIM]]> 2016-06-13T20:30:56+00:00 2016-06-13T20:30:00+00:00 https://www.ifitu.co.uk/personal-stylist/Fashion/2016/06/exclusive-jump-into-pool-kendall-kylie-swim IFITU info@ifitu.co.uk https://www.ifitu.co.uk/ Kardashian sisters make us keep up to their fashion rhythm: almost every month they launch something new to gazillions of fans they have.

If you are going there, there will be no excuse for a boring outfit. Top summer tracks will make you entitled to your own kind of catwalk. &nbsp; What&rsquo;s the formula of festival look success? Rock&rsquo;n&rsquo;roll vibes + chic details + basic essentials = you just landed festival diva status. Personal stylists welcome you to follow these basic inspirational guides while in the process of giving birth to an outfit that Alexa Chung might upload to &lsquo;Villoid&rsquo;. Yes, ladies, you want this. &nbsp; # FESTIVAL INSPO 1 &nbsp; There&rsquo;s nothing more typical than &lsquo;Hunter&rsquo; boots and green parka for a festival look. Yet, this combination with Ray-Ban sunglasses is a killer. How can you be more on point? It&rsquo;s comfy, flawless and cool. Loose flowing hair will add the needed &lsquo;wow&rsquo; effect, so please make it a &lsquo;good hair day&rsquo;. &nbsp; &nbsp; # FESTIVAL INSPO 2 &nbsp; If we are talking dresses here, we mean short dresses only. There&rsquo;s no place for LBD (Little Black Dresses) at music festivals: go for colors, prints and embellishments. More is more this time. However, you need to know that your festival dress probably won&rsquo;t be worn again (dirt &amp; mud will play their parts). &nbsp; &nbsp; # FESTIVAL INSPO 3 &nbsp; Crop top should be amongst your festival must &ndash; haves. Paired with jeans or a skirt, it gives you boho vibes you need. Gigi Hadid is the crop top girl: you can see her rocking the must-have item in London clubs and most awaited music festivals. Get inspired by this basic summer item that can transform your look. &nbsp; &nbsp; # FESTIVAL INSPO 4 &nbsp; Something crazy, catchy and bright will work. Think of T-Shirts with crazy titles, dresses with lace in bright colors or some more chunky jewelry. Think about things you wouldn&rsquo;t wear everyday. About outfits you would want to remember with smile. &nbsp; &nbsp; &nbsp; Start shopping A.S.A.P and grab the last tickets from the top festivals before it&rsquo;s too late. ---- Pictures: pinterest.com, asos.com&nbsp; <![CDATA[ESSENTIALS: SOME MORE TO OWN]]> 2016-06-09T20:42:08+00:00 2016-06-09T20:40:00+00:00 https://www.ifitu.co.uk/personal-stylist/outfit/2016/06/essentials-some-more-to-own IFITU info@ifitu.co.uk https://www.ifitu.co.uk/ Over the last two weeks we tried to emphasize the fact that you need (you have to finally agree!) to start buying wardrobe essentials.

Follow these style guide steps in order to reach #goals. &nbsp; STYLE GUIDE #1 &nbsp; BLAZER, NOT YOUR TYPICAL JACKET &nbsp; Let&rsquo;s do it like the French do. Put on our navy blazers, pair them with distressed jeans and rock our simple, yet sophisticated fashion looks. That navy blazer can be a go &ndash; to when going to work or simply enjoying a weekend off in Paris. And how about if it looked super chic on a LBD (Little Black Dress)? From fashion icons to girls in the streets of London: this is the item to hunt for. &nbsp; &nbsp; STYLE GUIDE #2 &nbsp; WHERE ARE YOU BLACK PANTS? &nbsp; Do we really need to explain why you need black pants? Probably not, but we are still not sure if you have that pair in your current size, all ironed and hanging in your closet? From front row seats at fashion weeks to your mother: no one can ever live without good quality trousers. In black, please. &nbsp; &nbsp; STYLE GUIDE #3 &nbsp; LOOSE WHITE SHIRT &nbsp; Loose white shirts are perfect for your casual stroll through the city and for a formal talk with your boss: this item saves your life.

Trust us, they are the only way to change the outfit every day and look exceptionally good. Choose the ones that are made of cotton so that you&rsquo;d feel as much comfort as you can.

If we were to identify our favourite tomboy chic girl, it would obviously be Alexa Chung. One of the coolest approaches to pull an effortless outfit off, is to choose something less feminine.

It happens that our closet is full of something that is literally unworn and something highly unpractical. So darlings, we expanded our tips &amp; tricks list for bringing wardrobe essentials back into your life (and please, do not browse for more mini skirts!) &nbsp; # SAY &lsquo;HI&rsquo; TO TRENCH COAT &nbsp; Being British is wonderful, but being British from the bottom of your outfit (our phrase and we are taking credits for that), is even classier. On a more serious note, we&rsquo;d like to tell you that trench coat is a piece that saves your life in a rainy place like London and is the symbol of elegance. The origins of the coat come from military and whenever you pull it off, it will dictate some tomboy &ndash; chic vibes to your outfit. Get one in beige or navy blue. Even though we don&rsquo;t do direct advertising&hellip; We&rsquo;d still like to say that Burberry is class. Finally, if you thought all the trench coats are boring, have a look at some of the styles below: &nbsp; &nbsp; # SAY &lsquo;HI&rsquo; TO BLACK JACKET &nbsp; Black jacket is great with casual jeans and so is it when paired with a classy skirt. Whether you want to look casual or official, it&rsquo;s an option to quickly pull new outfit together. Plus, if you mix black jacket with the right items, it will never look boring. Just get the vibes from Kate Moss and her stylish obsession with black jackets. &nbsp; &nbsp; # SAY &lsquo;HI&rsquo; TO BALLET FLATS &nbsp; To rock your ballet flats, you don&rsquo;t need to be a ballet dancer; you just need to listen to our guides. Surprisingly, our guides are extremely simple and involve thinking out of the box: stop shopping for heels and let your feet rest a little. You&rsquo;ll run to the meeting and still be able to walk 3 miles the same day even if you don&rsquo;t need to. Plus, ballet flats are simply gorgeous and can look extremely cute. &nbsp; &nbsp; # SAY &lsquo;HI&rsquo; TO BATEAU SHIRT &nbsp; Bateau shirt is the one with stripes and the one that will become your favorite one. For true lovers of this piece, we advise getting a few since they are irreplaceable. The easiest way to somewhat like reflect the style of Jane Birkin, is to get a Bateau shirt and pair it with jeans.

Learn from Hollywood&rsquo;s diva Jennifer Aniston: she definitely knows how to be youthful and classy at the same time. &nbsp; # MINIMISE THE RISK Too much jewelry or big &amp; risky bags won&rsquo;t really help in creating the effect. We recommend going for something light and minimal. That minimal look, if enhanced by professional make &ndash; up and relevant hairstyle, can be much more powerful than a bling &ndash; bling dress (that can be interpreted as over-dressing). # CHECK THE LENGTH It&rsquo;s always good to be safe (in terms of minding the appropriate guidelines of a more formal wear). So just to let you know, the advisable length of a cocktail dress is from mid &ndash; thigh to mid &ndash; calf. Style icon and famous designer Ulyana Sergeenko plays it well. # TEXTURES The sophistication of style can be expressed through a little game with textures. Instead of playing with multiple colors (than might go wrong), just choose two or more different textures. Rosie Huntington &ndash; Whiteley does it extremely well and always steals the show.

There are some core pieces that every woman should own in order to build a wardrobe that never lets down. Yves Saint Laurent once said that fashions fade, yet style is eternal. And we couldn&rsquo;t agree more. Therefore, personal stylists at IFITU are dying to suggest 4 core pieces that you should absolutely own. They are not only easy for any woman to pull off, but also should go well with items you already have hanging in your wardrobe. Ladies, start your journey with key components that will solve at least 50 % of your &ldquo;nothing to wear&rdquo;, &ldquo;what to wear&rdquo;, &ldquo;how to match&rdquo; problems. STAPLE NO 1: CASHMERE SWEATER Sweaters are something you can&rsquo;t really live without. Worn both on winters and summers, they can help you form a perfect model &ndash; off&nbsp; - duty look. Since they are one of the most worn items of yours, you should definitely go for a good quality one. We highly advise you choosing cashmere sweater in shades of grey or black. Before you may ask why, we want to remind you that you are picking something to have for life. Lastly, get inspired by all the &lsquo;It&rsquo; girls: Cara Delevingne, Kendall Jenner, Hailey Baldwin, Kate Moss and Alexa Chung who probably own more than 10 sweaters (trust us&hellip;!). &nbsp; STAPLE NO 2: DENIM JACKET Hello, denim lovers. Actually, denim jacket is not only for denim fans: it&rsquo;s for every woman that wants to look cool &amp; effortless. You can easily match the denim jacket with jeans (obviously), put on your LBD (Little Black Dress) or even pick for a first date, combining the jacket with tight skirt. By any chance, do you know who&rsquo;s the biggest denim jackets lover? Jessica Alba. STAPLE NO 3: SILK BLOUSE Underneath a black jacket; accompanied by a tight skirt; underneath a dress; together with a pair of jeans&hellip; The list is endless when it comes to how silk blouses can be worn. This particular staple is stylish, sexy and feminine. It will save your lives even on your worst days. Just take a look on how gorgeous Alexa Chung looks with a silk blouse. STAPLE NO 4: WHITE TEE White tee is a way to create a fresh and stylish look. You can never go wrong about jeans&rsquo; and white tee&rsquo;s combination. It&rsquo;s something that was, is and will be comfortable and gorgeous at the same time. Please have in mind that sometimes less is truly more. Lily Aldridge looks chic, right? Get online, ladies, and start building a proper wardrobe with essentials picked by personal stylists. ---- Pictures: asos.com, zalando.co.uk, pinterest.com&nbsp; <![CDATA[SUNNIES: SEE THE SUN THROUGH NEW LENSES]]> 2016-05-27T19:46:39+00:00 2016-05-27T19:50:00+00:00 https://www.ifitu.co.uk/personal-stylist/outfit/2016/05/sunnies-see-the-sun-through-new-lenses IFITU info@ifitu.co.uk https://www.ifitu.co.uk/ When the sun hits your face, all you want to do is literally shine with your new sunglasses. Streets of London are filled with celebrities hiding behind their chic sunglasses or stylish trendsetters embracing the new culture of eyewear. So what&rsquo;s in it for me, you may ask. Sunglasses if chosen precisely, can be the coolest way to express your style preferences. From Rihanna being the official ambassador of Dior eyewear to Olivia Palermo rocking mirrored sunglasses, it&rsquo;s about time you get a new pair. Personal stylist here at IFITU had a few sleepless nights on advising clients on how to master the look with that perfect pair of sunglasses. We have made you a list of 4 staples that should enhance your summer looks to get spotted by Elle, Harper&rsquo;s Bazaar or Vogue street style photographers. Sounds good, right? # PAIR NO 1 Cat &ndash; eye sunglasses reflect what we, women, are best about: seducing, dressing up and being girl bosses (and the list is never &ndash; ending, of course&hellip;). This type of sunglasses is the ultimate way to show that you are a fan of feminine and refined style. Olivia Palermo is the &lsquo;It&rsquo; girl that never leaves the house without a pair of cat &ndash; eye sunnies. So get inspired! #PAIR NO 2 Ray - Ban sunglasses is the pair you absolutely must own since they never go out of fashion (we are almost 100% definite). They are classy and their versatility has been tested thousand times: from Victoria Beckham to Nicky Hilton rocking them on holidays. #PAIR NO 3 Do you want to look boring or fun and cool? Since we already know your answer, we want to introduce you to mirrored sunglasses. Not only they hide your sharp eyes from the general public, but also serve as a mirror in case you needed to put some more lipstick on. And, oh, they add fun to any outfit. &nbsp; #PAIR NO 4 Did you say you wanted to prove that you know the street wear vibes? Coolest Shoreditch kids go for rounded sunglasses. Even though Beyonce doesn&rsquo;t live in Shoreditch (well&hellip; assuming that for now), she seems to approve this type of sunnies. Since the sun is not going to disappear, browse our selection of sunglasses. ---- Pictures: zalando.co.uk, pinterest.com&nbsp; <![CDATA[PARTY: WE MEAN CLUBBING ONLY]]> 2016-05-26T20:59:03+00:00 2016-05-26T20:00:00+00:00 https://www.ifitu.co.uk/personal-stylist/outfit/2016/05/party-we-mean-clubbing-only IFITU info@ifitu.co.uk https://www.ifitu.co.uk/ When it comes to partying outfits, IFITU personal stylists want to warn you that clubbing outfits should be a bigger deal than usual. The reason why, simply lies in the occasion itself and should be treated a major influencer. While clubbing, you not only need to be able to dance, look good, but also demonstrate a little bit of creativity. The times when you had to wear a little black mini to a club, are over, dear fashionistas. So here&rsquo;s what we did in order to save your life and fashion status on a clubbing night: a list. No surprise that our list covers five 4 key looks that should act as your main influence while creating a look to die for (yes yes yes&hellip;.!) # RULE NR 1 It&rsquo;s not a necessity to wear high &ndash; heels to a club. We have all been there, at London&rsquo;s Mahiki or Funky Budha, walking to the cab without shoes since it got to a point where high heels began to be so painful that there was no other choice. Therefore, to avoid such situations, get sexy biker boots and look as chic as Elisa Sednaoui. # RULE NR 2 Everything that can be associated with nightwear, works well for clubbing. It is stylish, sexy and refined at the same time. How to master the look, take a glance at Kendall&rsquo;s look: pastel colors and fabrics define the whole outfit. No bling bling needed! # RULE NR 3 Our inspiration this time comes from red carpet and we want to tell you that you can mix some menswear &ndash; inspired details into your outfit. It will look effortless and extremely cool. Michele Williams does it perfectly: shorts, long jacket and strap sandals never looked better. We are sending our love to the stylists of Michele. # RULE NR 4 Finally, get some glam on: lace, lace, lace. We are positive that you already own some precious little blouse with black detailed lace. Therefore, you only need a killer skirt and a pair of shoes that will transform your night into a catwalk (if you decided to go for heels). Candice Swanepoel can probably pull anything on, but this look is definitely a good one. Surprise yourselves with new pieces that are ready to be added to your wardrobe. ---- Pictures: pinterest.com, zalando.co.uk&nbsp; <![CDATA[RUMOUR HAS IT: H&M x KENZO ]]> 2016-05-25T18:53:37+00:00 2016-05-25T18:50:00+00:00 https://www.ifitu.co.uk/personal-stylist/Fashion/2016/05/rumour-has-it-hm-x-kenzo IFITU info@ifitu.co.uk https://www.ifitu.co.uk/ We are always overwhelmed by the latest collaborations from the fast fashion label H&amp;M. There is no doubt that we get very excited about the next brand to be picked for the upcoming collaboration. The label has already made extremely successful collaborations with Balmain, Anna Dello Russo, Maison Margiela and Versace. The merchandise has never let us down and we rocked the pieces on the streets of London (if, of course, we stood four hours outside the store just to get in on time). The big idea behind H&amp;M collections in cooperation with big luxury fashion houses is to offer affordable luxury to a greater number of customers and spread a new message. Each collection has a unique message: Balmain x H&amp;M wanted to empower women and offer them exquisite garments. No wonder that some items were re-sold at a price tag of &pound;2,500 since they were endorsed by Kim Kardashian and recommended by top tier bloggers. The whole collection turned out to be the most successful collaboration of all times: stores sold their merchandise worldwide in less than an hour. So we are guessing that you are impatiently waiting for the next one. Finally, good news is that you don&rsquo;t have to wait too long: new H&amp;M x Kenzo collaboration will be launched in November. The online launch will be followed by the show where the unique concept will be presented to the general public. We are excited since we are hoping to get something as iconic as the Kenzo jumper with Tiger with an affordable price tag and we want to be a part of this exciting collaboration. Therefore, follow H&amp;M news to get your eyes on the lookbook when it goes live. ---- Pictures: condenast.co.uk, hm.com, amazonaws.com, journaldesfemmes.com &nbsp;&nbsp; <![CDATA[PARTY: LET’S GET THIS OUTFIT PLANNED]]> 2016-05-24T17:41:38+00:00 2016-05-24T17:40:00+00:00 https://www.ifitu.co.uk/personal-stylist/outfit/2016/05/party-lets-get-this-outfit-planned IFITU info@ifitu.co.uk https://www.ifitu.co.uk/ There are days when it&rsquo;s difficult for someone to drag us out of the bed and there are times when we are calling literally everyone just to know if there&rsquo;s a party going on. Therefore, for those last-minute decisions there should be a few outfit options to get the party started. By saying that, we do not mean suggesting $10,000 red-carpet gowns, instead, we want you to have something more than a black dress and high heels. These days party wear should reflect the trends and, more importantly, your unique style and attitude. So no surprise that your personal stylist at IFITU has scanned tons of shops in London to get a grasp of what&rsquo;s trending. However, we are positive enough that you won&rsquo;t be bothered to go to Oxford street and spend three hours just to find a couple of dresses you might have to return. Instead, we have prepared four ultimate tips to get styled for a party. If you follow these tips and tricks, you will remember the party not only because of endless fun, but also for the maximum exposure or &ldquo;all eyes on you&rdquo; effect (let&rsquo;s put it that way). So here are our ultimate rules for party wear: #1 Show off a little It&rsquo;s a party, not an official meeting, not a dinner with your parents and that means that it is okay to define your body shape and the best that you have got. Obviously, it should not be something like Lady Gaga&rsquo;s outfit while touring. Your accessories should complement the look, but not steal the whole show. The ultimate idea of good party wear is to define your own beauty instead of hiding beneath expensive or shiny dress. Miranda Kerr masters party wear really well, therefore, get inspired by her evening choices. #2 Not necessarily a dress Who said that the ultimate party wear should be only dresses. Stun the crowd by a crop top and high-waisted skirt. Adding pigalle &ndash; style shoes to the combination will form an outfit that can definitely be good both for clubbing or someone&rsquo;s birthday party. Plus, if you chose the heels in some color other than black, you are already a start of the party. #3 Lace it up Lace is one core element that can transfer the whole outfit into party wear. Laces are not only perfect because they can cover the parts you want to be covered, but also they are always in fashion. Since lace dresses or skirts have an association with nightwear, they make a sexy statement with minimal efforts. #4 Bandage your body Bandage dresses became popular with the establishment of luxury brand Herv&eacute; L&eacute;ger, which is a must-have for the ultimate style icons and celebrities. They are not only easy to pull off, but also create a sophisticated and sexy look at the same time. Our beloved Miranda Kerr rocks a bandage dress and is an ideal inspiration how to get dressed for a chic party. Do not waste a single minute; hunt the pieces that we have found just for you. ---- Pictures: topshop.com, pinterest.com <![CDATA[TRAVELLING: BRINGING FASHION EVERYWHERE YOU GO]]> 2016-05-23T19:05:44+00:00 2016-05-23T19:10:00+00:00 https://www.ifitu.co.uk/personal-stylist/outfit/2016/05/travelling-bringing-fashion-everywhere-you-go IFITU info@ifitu.co.uk https://www.ifitu.co.uk/ With summer just across the street, even our minds start travelling to tropical islands and sandy beaches. Planning your long-awaited escape is definitely something very pleasant. When the plane tickets are booked and hotels are reserved, you will stare and your wardrobe and realize&hellip;that perhaps you should have planned all your wardrobe essentials ahead. Don&rsquo;t worry; personal stylists were born for this reason. We have selected five key looks that will ensure your jetsetter status while being away. Bear in mind that your holiday outfits should all be about comfort, fun and effortless chic. Day #1 Spending half of the day in one of the London&rsquo;s airports is definitely tiring, but you need to ensure your fresh &amp; stylish look all the time. So, style light blue jeans, with white cotton blouse and a jacket in color (our advice is to get one that is in pastel color). Rose Huntington &ndash; Whiteley looks ultra stylish, so follow her guides for the ideal airport chic. Day #2 We are pretty sure that the second day of your holidays will be spent walking around and getting the vibes of the new place. For that reason, please choose light shorts and a blouse that covers your hands (that way you will not get sunburnt in the very beginning of your trip). Style the whole outfit with a bag that can fit all the stuff you need while spending the whole day for new experiences. Day #3 You will not survive your holidays without a lightweight, sexy and revealing dress. That is why holidays are so much fun: they allow you to wear anything you like: the more colorful, the better.&nbsp; Day #4 There are no days without beach. Therefore, get ready to invest a little in a cute beach dress. They should be trendy enough: stripes, prints or little polka dots will do their job. We highly recommend you getting a beach bag and a classy hat to create the ultimate beach style. Day #5 When your holiday is almost over, make the last evening memorable by wearing a lace dress or something that has a cut in the back. This type of dress will make you the Parisian style diva. Since we have explained you what you need, please do your job and get the missing pieces before you land with an empty luggage. ---- Pictures: zalando.co.uk, topshop.com, pinterest.com&nbsp; <![CDATA[WORK: WORK YOUR OUTFIT OUT FIRST]]> 2016-05-22T17:44:13+00:00 2016-05-22T17:40:00+00:00 https://www.ifitu.co.uk/personal-stylist/outfit/2016/05/work-work-your-outfit-out-first IFITU info@ifitu.co.uk https://www.ifitu.co.uk/ Lazy Sunday evenings seem to finally get us to the point that the weekend is over and Monday is in spitting distance. Getting out of the bed at 6 AM in the morning is not the easiest task taking into consideration that your job does not end here. So, we highly suggest (almost beg you) deciding on your outfit the day before. Or, ideally, follow our list of work outfit suggestions to ease the process of working your work outfit out. Fashion obsessed stylists here at IFITU have made a list for you with suggestions of outfits you can effortlessly pull off for work. We are basing our list on something that will make you snug as a bug in a rug (in terms of the outfit choice). Your 5 working days with outfit inspirations are outlined below, therefore, scroll down to get styled for&hellip; work! And guess where all our inspirations are coming from? Our beloved Victoria Beckham. #1 Monday Funday Sleeveless sheath dress with simple cut is something that you should not question on a Monday morning. Choose a dress that has a sharp cut and is in a light color so that you reflect the spring &ndash; summer vibes even at work. &nbsp; #2 Tuesday Blues A tux will not let you down: it will make you feel ultra chic and professional at the same time. The current season trends indicate that you should go for one that has black lapels. Try something new to stun the whole office. &nbsp; #3 Wednesday&rsquo;s Headache In the middle of the week you might feel that the workload is giving you a headache. Instead, focus on your outfit: sexy high &ndash; waisted skirt accompanied by white or navy shirt will ease things out. #4 Thursday is Almost Friday We are positive that you have a silk blouse or a plain white shirt that you can style with dark - colored trousers or jeans. The whole idea is to create a color contrast and sharpen your work outfit. #5 Friday: FRIDAY FRIDAY FRIDAY! Your outfit should be light, trendy and chic. So how about loose trousers and a white blouse? Meet Friday at ease. Since the clock is ticking, have a look at our selection to get ready for the upcoming week. ---- Pictures: pinterest.com, zalando.co.uk, topshop.com&nbsp; <![CDATA[FIRST DATE: CAST YOUR FASHION SPELL]]> 2016-05-21T06:34:19+00:00 2016-05-21T06:30:00+00:00 https://www.ifitu.co.uk/personal-stylist/outfit/2016/05/first-date-cast-your-fashion-spell IFITU info@ifitu.co.uk https://www.ifitu.co.uk/ Dating itself is a big thing; yet going on a first date is something to be thought of in advance. We&rsquo;ve all been there: searching for the salon to get the manicure done, running into the glass doors of Boots while in search for another pair of black tights and spending at least half an hour for wardrobe revision. Plus, have it ever worked out to be less than 30 minutes late? Probably not. The saddest (to some extent, of course) thing is that you need to look your best and that means that having at least one shelf dedicated to dating would be very sound of you. Your personal stylist (the one that declines going out just to get you styled) has made a list of do&rsquo;s and don&rsquo;ts while on a hunt for&hellip; the outfit. ✓&nbsp;Don&rsquo;t be overdressed. It would seem that this date is as important as attending annual Diamond Ball. And this is something you don&rsquo;t want to happen. Get styled like this: Kendall Jenner pulls off an outfit that is both sexy and casual. She plays with simple cuts that define her perfect body shape. With silver heels, reflecting the shade of the top and black sunglasses, she looks impeccable. ✓&nbsp;Wearing pants instead of a skirt is more than fine. Simply take a look at Emma Watson&rsquo;s outfit for a stroll in the city. We are positive that your date would be impressed by your style and overpowering attitude. ✓&nbsp;Heels in which you can&rsquo;t walk will not do any good for you. What if you decided to dance all night long? Just go for courts like Amal Clooney does. ✓ Grab a bag that is medium-seized. Simply because you need to put your essentials in it, yet you do not want to look like you are ready to stay overnight. ✓ Incorporate one (yes, only one) revealing detail. Just because going on a date doesn&rsquo;t mean selling yourself. How about Taylor Swift and her shorts revealing those perfect legs? Shop all day and dance all night long with confidence. ---- Pictures: pinterest.com, zalando.co.uk&nbsp;&nbsp; <![CDATA[SAFARI: YOUR NEW FASHION MISSION UNLOCKED]]> 2016-05-17T13:37:06+00:00 2016-05-17T13:40:00+00:00 https://www.ifitu.co.uk/personal-stylist/outfit/2016/05/safari-your-new-fashion-mission-unlocked IFITU info@ifitu.co.uk https://www.ifitu.co.uk/ Aviation, military and hunting always played a major part in men&rsquo;s lifestyle.

The invitation &ndash; only event is phenomenal not only for the film, but also for the fashion industry. Big fashion houses provide beautifully embellished gowns, dazzling diamond jewelry (we hope you remember a $10 million Tiffany &amp; Co diamond necklace that Anne Hathaway graciously wore) for the most &ndash; talked film divas. Yet, this whole glamour &lsquo;moment&rsquo; lasts 12 days, resulting in tons of outfits to be judged and admired. Designers battle for their moment on Harper&rsquo;s Bazaar, Vogue, Elle, WhoWhatWear or other publications&rsquo; best-dressed lists. This year&rsquo;s fashion police is no less critical, yet more and more movie stars pulled a wide range of outfits: from ready &ndash; to &ndash; wear to couture.

The goal is to make men feel relatively informal, edgy and even more confident than before. Please bear in mind that jeans dominating on Maison Margiela, Valentino and Gucci catwalks are usually in slim fit and straight cut. &nbsp;&nbsp; Your online personal stylist recommends buying a few pairs of distressed jeans in different shades.

Chiffon, satin and lace &mdash; along with a lot of skin &mdash; were all over Paris runways. The dresses can be easily matched with either leather boots or sneakers depending&nbsp; on the style you want to create. If you feel like wearing a piece of lingiere is too much or you feel exposed way more than you need: you can go for a more sophisticated look by adding items like jackets, coats etc. Accessories such as furry scarfs, socks, big leather cltuches or even backpacks will look pretty good as well. Just mind the cuts or the fabrics as those little components can determine the pieces you want to add into your look. If the dress is silky and lacy and your wish is to create an urban outfit, simply choose some heavy clothing like denim jacket, socks, sneakers. If your lingerie choice is very simple, a choker, a pair of heels and shinny bracelets will be just right for your summer choice. &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; You can see the bedroom clothing in Alexander Wang, Haider Ackermann, Saint Laurent, Marc Jacobs collections and many more.

Because, according to those in the know, things are about to get a lot more bling. &ldquo;We&rsquo;ve seen a move on from bracelets in the jewellery department for SS16,&rdquo; says Simon Spiteri, accessories buyer at&nbsp;Mr Porter. &ldquo;More is more in terms of jewellery trends. Bracelets are still prevalent, with the addition of necklaces by brands like Peyote Bird, who have a rich cultural heritage in the southwest of America and specialise in turquoise &ndash; which are made for layering up with other types of metals, leather and beading.&rdquo; We&rsquo;d suggest keeping the layering to your wrist, lest you start to give off Mr T on a gap year jaunt round southeast Asia. Joking aside, if you&rsquo;ve got the stones to pull it off, then a necklace is a good way to add interest to an otherwise plain T-shirt or vest. And if you don&rsquo;t want to stick your neck out, there&rsquo;s always your wrist. &ldquo;Layering these different types of metals, leathers and beads also works really well when accompanied with a watch,&rdquo; says Spiteri. &ldquo;Opt for a classic style of watch to balance out a bolder choice of bracelet.&rdquo; And dial down the hippy overtones by giving the impression that you still have to be on time for something.

Or peak describing-things-as-peak? Who can say. But judging by this introduction, we&rsquo;d wager not. What we can confidently state, though, is that there was a metric sh*t-ton of baseball caps on the SS16 catwalks. Everyone from Versace to Salvatore Ferragamo via Calvin Klein Collection was showing the headgear du jour. (Tip of the hat also to Balmain.) Like the backpack trend, the most on-point examples are elevated by premium materials like leather and wool, in line with the prevailing sports luxe wind blowing through menswear. Again, the object is to avoid looking like an errant teen. Or William Hague. Frankly though, this writer would take anything over those affected fedoras. Seriously guys, that&nbsp;Great Gatsby&nbsp;thing is dead in the water.

But for SS16, round shades are enjoying their time in the sun. &ldquo;It&rsquo;s time to step away from the traditional Wayfarer and Clubmaster and invest in one of the variations of round sunglasses for this season,&rdquo; says Alisha Chadha, men&rsquo;s accessory and swimwear buyer at&nbsp;Urban Outfitters. &ldquo;Whether it&rsquo;s a vintage look with a traditional penny round, or a more subtle play on the trend with demi-rounds, there are styles to suit all faces.&rdquo; The only real exception is, of course, if you have a round face, in which case you would be better advised to overlook this trend in favour of angular frames that lend some much-needed definition to your spherical countenance. Otherwise, get your John Lennon on. It&rsquo;s not just the shape of your lenses that you should focus on though. &ldquo;One of the key trends for eyewear is a pair of flat-lens sunglasses,&rdquo; says Luke Raymond, menswear fashion editor at&nbsp;ASOS. &ldquo;This minor change to the usual convex lens instantly updates a classic shape and gives you something fresh for the season.&rdquo; Failing that, you can always re-deploy an old faithful: &ldquo;Aviators aren&rsquo;t going anywhere and really accessorise the military aesthetic that is so popular at the moment.&rdquo; Here are inspirational looks from the latest collections of Massimo Dutti, Forever 21, Digel, Mango and Suit Supply: &nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp; Now take a look at these trendy sunglasses your personal stylist has curated today from leading UK&#39;s online shops.

Oversized dresses in shimmering silver appear at Vetements, while it is buttercups in the meadows at Sonia Rykiel, long sleeves and short skirts included. Anthony Vaccarello gives us the rather high slits up the sides of slip dresses, something we also see in the more purple designs on the&nbsp;Marc Jacobs&nbsp;dresses and skirts. Marni&rsquo;s got some crazy design ideas in black and white shimmers, while&nbsp;Paco Rabanne&nbsp;has some Venusian guards on the runway. And then there is Tom Ford, with the artistic cuts to the neckline, the patchy colors all over and the full body slip with complementary sleeves happening. Shimmering silver appears at Paco Rabanne before it gets all crinkled up at Victoria Beckham. The silver sparkles really catch out attention at Aquilano Rimondi, while those Isabel Marant leggings can make eyes pop. The burnt golden shine is gorgeous at&nbsp;Prabal Gurung, while the sunshine on the sea is where the astounding Carolina Herrera takes us. John Galliano makes the white of the land shimmer, while threads sparkle in a lovely manner at Burberry. Turquoise you say? Take a look at Gucci!

It appears on gorgeous romantic floral printed and side layered dresses, creating spidery halter tops that might belong on a Halloween costume if not or the beauty of the dress itself, as well as full pieces made of lace at Rodarte, which show off sleepwear as outerwear with positive delight, lace appearing in both black and white. The lace was very much in our faces and we would not have had it any other way from the floral appliques added at Topshop to the added volumes at Preen. There was lace everywhere and we were in love, without a doubt there.

But for SS16, they&rsquo;re holding an even higher status. &ldquo;We&rsquo;re seeing really strong sales of what we&rsquo;ve dubbed the &lsquo;boardroom backpack&rsquo;,&rdquo; says Damien Paul, head of menswear at&nbsp;MATCHESFASHION.com. &ldquo;Backpacks have been one of our strongest bag categories for some time, but this season they&rsquo;ve become much more polished and grown-up.&rdquo; Think exquisite leather, high-end hardware and a vibe that&rsquo;s less oversized and tippexed than the baggy, low-slung versions of your school days. &ldquo;We&rsquo;re selling versions from Bottega Veneta, Fendi and Valextra, and they&rsquo;re being used as a more modern update on carrying a briefcase everywhere,&rdquo; says Paul. One that you can also get your gym kit in. Fashion brands are all aboard the backpack bandwagon. But Darren Skey, head of menswear buying at&nbsp;Harvey Nichols, is tipping an OG luggage-maker. &ldquo;As menswear has become progressively functional in recent seasons, so have accessories for SS16,&rdquo; he says. &ldquo;Japanese accessories brand Porter-Yoshida is renowned for intricate design and manufacture. The aesthetically slick bags &ndash; still made in Japan today &ndash; are constructed in durable nylon that is impervious to both dirt and water.&rdquo; And sand, presumably. A word of warning: if you&rsquo;re taking your upmarket backpack to the boardroom, keep the straps away from the delicately constructed shoulders of your tailored jackets. It&rsquo;s enough to make us (and your blazer) weep. Here are inspirational looks from the latest collections of Reiss, Massimo Dutti, House of Fraser, Mango, Cerruti and River Island. &nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp; To sum up, your personal stylist has curated these trendy versatile backpacks from leading UK&#39;s online shops.

We see a whole lot of flowers at Oscar de la Renta, Alexander McQueen,&nbsp;Etro, and the metallic sort at Gucci, each dress holding a spectacular romance-inspiring appeal. We have translucent materials appear at Gucci, Erdem, and Rodarte, while more Puritan effects come into play at Zac Posen, amplified by the translucent looks at Philosophy di Lorenzo Serafini.

This time around though we have some more prominent players in that field who have included everything from toggles to stripes and ropes, giving so many collections a rather interesting upscaling. This includes the blue pants with white buttons at Derek Lam, the ropes at Altuzarra and Creatures of Comfort, the stripes at Kate Spade New York and the lacing effects on the chest at Rebecca Minkoff, giving the ladies a distinctly feminine seafari look.

We have loved fringe for a while now, adoringly wearing the trend for the past few seasons with our heads in the clouds that lead to the 1970s. Now, we see it again, albeit without as much aplomb, on pretty jackets that fall to the calves at Dries Van Noten, while safari skirts come in fringe to get us ready for the hike up those mountains with Valentino. Fringes appear on the&nbsp;Alexander Wang&nbsp;skirts, in lines heading down with intriguing flair, though most designers using the swinging embellishments knew the hems would be the best place to keep the trend gong. Ulla Johnson has some looser, more comfortable dresses with the fringe, while it gets nice and sexy at Polo Ralph Lauren, bringing in the stark white at Tess Giberson, and the swinging color of healthy bones at Christian Siriano versus the swinging blacks at Salvatore Ferragamo. Come to think of it, Stella McCartney sure loves the longer fringes! Here are the runway looks from the latest collections of Dion Lee, Loewe and Prabal Gurung for your inspiration: &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Today your personal stylist has curated some trendy fringed dresses, blouses and skirts for&nbsp;you from the leading UK&#39;s online shops.

They are interesting to look at, add a whole lot of flounce and still end up appearing as chic and sophisticated as can be. So when you add micro pleats, it is bound to look event better, from Stella McCartney&rsquo;s asymmetrical and gradient hued skirts and tops taken into consideration, to the romantic ruffles and frills at Giles, the yellow buttercup seen at Sonia Rykiel, the pretty lilac grey hued dress at Gabriele Colangelo, and the off the shoulder pieces at J Mendel. Even Hermes comes in with a fiery temper, shoes matching the dress. Those pleats join layered ruffles and a single bared shoulder with army prints for a rather intriguing safari experience. Gorgeous mesh combines with pleats at Emanuel Ungaro to really give the name of fashion a good look, transparent around the legs and all. Even the Romanesque Valentino looks have pleating on them, which only accentuated the look of the blocky geometric prints and the plunging neckline, similar to Vionnet but with a lot more definition at the waist. Chanel, Gucci, and Carolina Herrera bring in the ultra-fabulous.

Mark Jacobs falls into this category with his diver with amethyst hued side slit skirts, though earth certainly comes into play at BCBG Max Azria. We see the maxi dresses and skirts everywhere really, from the pleated Stella McCartney to the interesting prints on the&nbsp;Valentino&nbsp;collection, especially those that have a distinctive old Roman look to them.

We do, however see it appear often enough as a jacket, while still taking into account the high waist miniskirts, the gorgeous shoes and sandals, the zip up variations, and all. Sexy takes on new meaning for leather at Anthony Vaccarello, having his body cons accented with oversized leather crop jackets. Hedi Slimane came in strong with his outerwear, the outfits bearing some resemblance to his past works with Saint Laurent. Zippers and fringe are the best embellishments for this designer. At&nbsp;Louis Vuitton, Nicolas Ghesquiere gave his leather a punkish appeal, decorated with stripes and the LV logos. Mugler&rsquo;s looks were probably our favorite leather creations though, with David Koma giving us cropped edges and unique precedents. Leather appears with buckle straps on the Diesel Black Gold show, tucked into some futuristic denim, and even appearing with capes at Gareth Pugh. Here are the runway looks from latest collections of Ralph Lauren, 3.1 Phillip Lim and Nina Ricci for your inspiration: Now take a look at these always trendy and affordable&nbsp;leather pieces your personal stylist has curated today from leading UK&#39;s online shops.

Although espadrilles are more commonly associated with sunning oneself in the Mediterranean &ndash; or Miami, in the case of pastel-suited ambassador Don Johnson &ndash; back in the 1200s they were standard issue for the King of Aragon&rsquo;s infantrymen. But despite these military roots, espadrilles aren&rsquo;t exactly the most rugged of footwear, which perhaps also explains their slightly louche connotations &ndash; they&rsquo;re not shoes for yomping much further than the beach bar. And that didn&rsquo;t matter too much then or now, because of their cheapness. Today, designers often incorporate modern innovations like stealth rubber soles to increase espadrilles&rsquo; durability while maintaining their laid-back, hand-woven vibe. But the likes of Jimmy Choo, Dolce &amp; Gabbana and Valentino have taken things a step further this season, with trainer-espadrille hybrids sporting thick rope-trimmed soles and slick leather uppers in place of cotton. Yes, they&rsquo;re more expensive. But they&rsquo;re also more suited to padding around on pavements &ndash; and less likely to disintegrate, too. Plus they can be dressed up with smarter outfits and even relaxed summer tailoring. Rolling the sleeves up is strictly optional, Crockett.

But if you want to stay on your toes fashion-wise, then you need to keep at least one peeper on what&rsquo;s happening below the (exposed) ankle. Look no further.&nbsp;IFITU stylists&nbsp;have&nbsp;searched high and low (but mostly low) to find footwear styles that are a shoe-in for spring/summer 2016. So when a walk-off ensues, you&rsquo;re ready to step to. Yes, you read that right. Note, though, we&rsquo;re talking proper leather sandals here, as distinct from cheap rubber flip-flops. &nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp; Designers have been pushing sandals with increasing force for a few seasons now, and the big guns all pulled out their straps for SS16 &ndash; everyone from Michael Kors to Marni, Margaret Howell to Maison Margiela, and even some brands that don&rsquo;t begin with M, like Gucci, Versace and Kenzo to name but three. It&rsquo;s an evolution of the pool slider trend; indeed, the fact these &lsquo;mandals&rsquo; are rendered in a premium material like leather makes them sit more naturally alongside more formal summer looks and even tailoring &ndash; of the relaxed, deconstructed kind, that is. They&rsquo;ll jar a bit with a Savile Row suit. But while highly ventilated sandals are supremely practical for summer, they&rsquo;re very much an edgy look &ndash; especially if, like on the runways, you style them with socks. There&rsquo;s a fine line between chiselled Greek god and lost German tourist. If you&rsquo;re entering the gladiatorial arena, it&rsquo;s safer to lose the hosiery and go barefoot (in your sandals). Just make sure you get a pedicure before you let the dogs out. Now take a look at these trendy sandals your personal stylist has curated today from leading UK&#39;s online shops.

They make any piece looks positively feminine and utterly delicate, particularly when the ruffles are created from flimsy, swaying fabrics. At Balmain, we had bare shoulders combine with ruffles to pull together a rather romantic atmosphere before melting into a fiery passionate Latin influenced one, with Olivier Rousteing utilizing this trend to put together his very sexy army of fashion divas. Dries Van Noten played with transparencies, on the other hand, and pulled of a 3D look with his ruffled tiers. The looks themselves were already rather eye-catching. Our favorite transparent ruffles appeared at Alexander McQueen, with Sarah Burton giving the outfits a soft and romance inducing element.&nbsp;Giambattista Valli, on the other hand, went right for the retro with the tiered sleeves and ruffled skirts, modernized with the intriguingly cut plunging neckline. The idea of celebrations seems to be the main premise behind the fancy and frivolous designs, the frills and ruffles coming into play on flouncing sleeves and bouncing hemlines, even appearing in asymmetric lines. The ruffles were used sparsely for the most part, but had incredible effects, appearing at Gucci, Lanvin, Luisa Beccaria, J.W. Anderson, and Marques Almeida, among others. The latter brought out some very interesting jean ruffles that had us scratching our heads and wondering if we loved or hated it with all its busyness.

Now, we see it playing peek-a-boo with us for the spring and summer, appearing from time to time in beautiful designs, kind of like the overcoat look see at Derek Lam. Denim appears all over, from Chloe to Dries Van Noten, Faustine Steinmetz to Fendi,&nbsp;Chanel&nbsp;to Marc Jacobs, Alexander McQueen to Marques Almeida, etc. The suede and the pleats combine for an almost fringed look at the Hermes show, fiery red and full of passion as it is. We see this trend at Jonathan Saunders,&nbsp;Alberta Ferretti,&nbsp;Rebecca Minkoff and Balmain, the decades most loved fabric being sent down that runway time and again as an ode to a period where fashion boomed.

And every label worth its stitching has at least an in-house pair or two. Usually offered at an astonishing mark-up, purchasing a pair of these is an undeniable lifestyle flex. Designers Raf Simons and Rick Owens have garnered a lot of chatter for their adidas collaborations, but mainstays like Lanvin (arguably a key progenitor of our current obsession with kicks), Italian-made Koio Collective and esteemed London cobbler John Lobb have recently brought out stellar efforts, too. Lobb&rsquo;s ultra-minimalist Levah &ndash; a lightweight summer-ready sneaker available in suede and velveteen calf leather &ndash; caught eyes last year, and Parisian disruptor Damir Doma&rsquo;s sub-label SILENT delivered the goods with the colour-blocked Fedka low-top. With millennials an increasingly important market for high-end labels, expect to see plenty more superbly crafted &lsquo;accessible&rsquo; styles, at less than accessible price points. &nbsp;&nbsp; On the other side of the fence is the Fashion Trainer&rsquo;s slightly scruffier younger brother, the Affordable Fashion Trainer. Intent on democratising (read: copying) the luxury trainer, mainstream sportswear and high street names are &ndash; with a wink, nudge and healthy dose of it&rsquo;s-all-in-good-fun boyish charm &ndash; swiping silhouettes, panels and eyelets from the blue-chip brands, keen to bring you the effect of a &pound;500 trainer without the knee-weakening price tag. Which is nice of them, really, isn&rsquo;t it? adidas&rsquo; Tubular was rumoured to be a prototype of the Yeezy Boost and garnered hypebeast acclaim by the comment section-ful, while COS has been &lsquo;channelling&rsquo; pricey labels like Epaulet, Zespa and Common Projects for seasons with its unfussy neutral lace-ups. &nbsp;&nbsp; Make 2016 the year you realise you don&rsquo;t need to cough up your car insurance for a pair of trending trainers that look money.

Arguably the easiest trend to dip your toe into, try showing your style chops by wearing head-to-toe green once spring hits. While all-over neutrals work best with subtle differences in colour and texture, you&rsquo;ll want to clearly clash shades of green to strike the right balance &ndash; look to&nbsp;Herm&egrave;s&rsquo;&nbsp;dark olive lightweight bomber and jade green trousers pairing to see how it&rsquo;s done.

We&#39;re so used to seeing Kate in sophisticated dresses or glamorous evening gowns (Jenny Packham and Temperley London have been her go-to for evening occasions so far!), that it&#39;s refreshing to see her in a more low-key look. She headed off on safari through Kaziranga National Park in Assam wearing a pair of skinny jeans, which she teamed with her favourite Sebago boat shoes, Ray-Ban sunglasses and a printed shirt. The good news for those of you hoping to recreate Kate&#39;s look is that her jeans look-a-likes are available to buy now for just under &pound;30. We love the khaki shade, as well as the asymmetric gold zip and the ribbed biker details at the knee.

Surprisingly, this is not related to the colour of William&#39;s chinos or indeed any other part of his wardrobe. No, in an unprecedented turn of events, all everybody cares about is what the Duchess is wearing. So far, we&#39;ve seen Kate looking resplendent in an array of designer gowns, including a McQueen paisley design, a cobalt floor-sweeper by Jenny Packman and an ivory midi from Emilia Wickstead. As always, K-Middy is flying the flag fro British designers, choosing her usual faves to pack for her trip. But wait - what&#39;s this we spy?

Lanvin&rsquo;s got some pretty bows around the neck of its models, in gauzy organza tied up to look fluffy and large against the chest. Double bows appear at Gucci, again in gauzy material against a transparent top, while the earthy colors come into play with a simpler tied up bow on the shoulder at Marni.

At&nbsp;Brioni, creative director Brendan Mullane topped his two-piece suits with lightweight parkas in Japanese nylon, while Rodolfo Paglialunga&rsquo;s sophomore collection for&nbsp;Jil Sander&nbsp;saw the sharp tailoring and outerwear the label&rsquo;s known for rendered not in cotton or linen, but parachute nylon. Sweaty? Maybe. Sleek? Undoubtedly. Elsewhere, Miuccia Prada &ndash; not usually one to chime with current trends so much as set them &ndash; gave her nod to the increasingly sporty aesthetic of our everyday wear with&nbsp;a zip pocketed singlet and leather shorts. Get a headstart on the trend by prioritising performance fabrics on your shopping list. Nylon, lightweight cotton and Gore-Tex are the materials designers are using to move smarter pieces into the future.

And while there&rsquo;s no disputing them, layering&rsquo;s also worth looking at for its stylistic potential. Take, for example,&nbsp;Casely-Hayford&rsquo;s SS16 show, which featured a featherweight navy coat layered underneath a fire engine red blouson jacket, or&nbsp;Ermenegildo Zegna&rsquo;s offering, which included a dusty pink notched lapel blazer layered over a checked double-breasted jacket. While it might all sound messy on paper, put together it&rsquo;s the ideal way to clash colours, patterns or textures. Executing this one properly is about focussing on two things: fabric weights, and complementary cuts. Firstly, to stop yourself sweltering, choose lightweight layers made from cotton, linen or nylon. Secondly, rather than awkwardly jarring your layers, try a shorter, structured layer on inside, while keeping your exterior layer relaxed in form and slightly longer in length.

On the contrary, we would be happy to be well rid of those pesky things, along with multiple layers. We would much rather be wearing a simple tank and shorts. But then again, there are ways that a lady with class can pull off the layers and long sleeves while still keeping relatively cool. Sheer undershirts with long sleeves are what have made a comeback on the runway and they look delectable for a modern lady who enjoys showing off while still covering up. Mesh fabrics and lace are what we are going for here, and preferably nothing excessively synthetic. Creatures of the Wind gives us some rather lovely alternatives, with stripes and stars, layered under wraparound and/or belted shirts and tops. Rodarte loves that sheer and brings in Victorian fashions, giving it a contemporary tweak. Zimmermann&rsquo;s ladies are quite lady-like actually, with their lacy underclothes adding spice and beauty to the outfits. Bra tops come placed over sheer long sleeved pieces at Dries Van Noten, bringing the inside out! Mesh is what is in at Maison Margiela, the mesh on the stockings matching the mesh on the sleeves of the piece worn under the sleeveless top layer. Emilio Pucci is another such brand, using looser transparent shirts underneath with bird patterning and pretty pleated slips over on top. Here are runway looks from SS&#39;16 collections of Dries Van Noten, Rodarte and Zimmermann for your inspiration: &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Now take a look at these awesome and trendy sheer dresses your personal stylist has curated from leading UK&#39;s online shops.

However mind the colour: the darker you will get, the smarter you will look. For a more relaxed approach, you can tuck your polo in with any apparel. You can also pair the shirt with a blazer or a sweater and dress pants for an elegant yet simple look. This classic piece with 1970s vibes within it can also be paired with a bomber jacket to pull off an edgy street style look.

While we&rsquo;ve been seeing wider-legged trousers for a couple of years now, SS16 was the first season we saw so many make sense. From&nbsp;Casely-Hayford&rsquo;s front pleat styles&nbsp;to&nbsp;Dolce &amp; Gabbana&rsquo;s floral takes, relaxed trousers were offered up as the perfect way to ensure your legs stay aired during summer&rsquo;s heat. And aren&rsquo;t we all tired of squeezing ourselves into samey slim- and skinny-fits anyway? It&rsquo;s the brave man who&rsquo;d attempt some of SS16&rsquo;s particularly capacious cuts (see&nbsp;Craig Green), but roomier styles with a just-right break are a cinch to wear with everything from tees to short-sleeved shirts and blazers. Put simply, aim for a pair that sit somewhere between allowing your legs to breathe and samurai levels of billowing fabric.

They are light layers though and very much needed to ensure both style and warmth. The jacket trend for the upcoming seasons actually seems to take on a boxier silhouette, with cropped cuts and a sophisticated figure, roomy but with a proper fit for the body, perfect to go with the slack pants that are also a huge thing for the season. We see these designs on the&nbsp;Emporio Armani&nbsp;stage, with a rather horse riding gear look, Bottega Veneta with its leopard prints over army colors, on pretty Moschino suits with contrast stitching, and looking quite large on the&nbsp;Prada&nbsp;runway. Sportmax has it appear as something more versatile, while Versace loves pairing with shorts and a simple bandeau over the chest. &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Now take a look ate these trendy boxy fit jackets your personal stylist has curated today from leading UK&#39;s online shops.

Enter the Cuban collar shirt &ndash; the open, almost notch lapel-like collared style our grandfathers probably couldn&rsquo;t get enough of in the 1950s. There was a black version embroidered with pink palm trees at&nbsp;Dries Van Noten, while Patrick Grant&rsquo;s take at E. Tautz ran the gamut from&nbsp;geometric prints&nbsp;to&nbsp;plain pale indigo. Almost all were boxy in their cut, dwarfing even meatier models&rsquo; biceps. If you&rsquo;re bored silly of Oxford button-downs, a Cuban collar short-sleeved shirt is the ideal piece to shake things up. But you&rsquo;ll want to be sure to keep the cut fitted (unless you&rsquo;re an off-duty model) and the style itself low-key, so try plain, neutral designs for starters and wear neatly tucked into a slightly looser-leg trouser for the full 1950s effect. Here are a few street-style inspirations for you. Take a look! Your personal stylist has curated these lovely shirts with cuban collar from some of the leading UK&#39;s online shops.

But designers are moving it on, producing styles rooted in the traditional MA-1&rsquo;s shape but rendered in fabrics &ndash; like suede and silk &ndash; better suited to cocktail bars than airborne battles. And it&rsquo;s not just bombers getting the suede treatment, but blousons too. Which means you don&rsquo;t always have to default to a linen blazer when you want to look smart in warmer weather. One of these &ndash; whether blue, black or brown; bomber, blouson or Western &ndash; will chime just as well with a button-down shirt, provided it comes in a tailored fit and a length that falls just below your waist. Your personal stylist recommends:&nbsp;check the Weather app for clear skies before taking this one for a spin, and remember to pre-treat with a quality fabric protector as well.

Trends and styles that were once considered modern and daring eventually become old and ugly, only to be reborn and re-worn decades later. And that cycle seems to be turning quicker than ever. Less than 20 years later, fashion that was considered cool in the 90s is cool once again. Whether it&rsquo;s on the catwalk, on the street or in the stores, 90s trends are appearing everywhere. So embrace those crop tops, chokers and Doc Martens and we&rsquo;ll show you how to rock the 90s trend in 2016. To rock the 90s trend in 2016, styles need to be reworked so that they are relevant in today&rsquo;s culture. Instead of copying looks exactly as they were in the 90s, recreate them in a modern and updated way. The trick is to still capture that &ldquo;too cool to care&rdquo; attitude of the 90s whilst looking fresh and on-trend. Blend classic 90s pieces like crop tops or chokers into your everyday wardrobe with skinny jeans and heeled boots. Pair your favourite new dress with 90s half up, half down hairstyle, or add layers by wearing a&nbsp;t-shirt underneath. Go light on the grunge to balance &rsquo;90s references with today&rsquo;s more sleek and polished aesthetic. But most of all, have fun with your style and embrace the carefree, youthful feel of the 90s! Here are awesome 90s inspired&nbsp;street-style looks for you: &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; To top it off your personal&nbsp;stylist curated some lovely 90s inpired outfits&nbsp;from leading UK&#39;s online shops.

But while that&rsquo;s usually manifest in military-inspired overcoats and camo prints, designers changed tack for SS16, looking to the dawn of aviation and early 20th century safaris for inspiration. At&nbsp;Dunhill, it was in the scorched earth-coloured brown wide brim fedora, open-necked shirt and lightweight scarf, while&nbsp;Belstaff&nbsp;went full throttle with a desert combat collection of field jackets, tanksuits and multi-pocketed gilets inspired by the Desert Rats, the British forces based in North Africa during WWII. Tanksuits, we know, aren&rsquo;t for everyone, so if you&rsquo;re giving this trend a whirl steer towards its more wearable aspects: khaki field jackets, chinos and bush shirts (short sleeves and two chest pockets) will all work well for an urban expedition. Here are a few awesome street-style inspirations for you: &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; &nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp;&nbsp; Now take a look at these lovely safari-inspired pieces your personal stylist curated from leading UK&#39;s online shops.
