There was a time were men didnt bother about the latest fashion as long as they were clothed they were fine. Women also want to look very femine and never wanted to be mistaken for a man. Well I need not tell you, things hae changed. Guys are no longer scared to be mistaken for being gay because of their fashion sense and beauty regime. Women want to experiment more and change up their style. The solution, we borrow from each other. These days we find men sporting skinny jeans, Purses, Scares and even daring to put on some makeup; I think my husband even has a better beauty regime than I do[I kid]. Women too are not left out, we borrow from the guys too, Tuxedos, suspenders, bow ties. it should be trifling, but it is exciting. It should be called chaos, but it works. So next time when in doubt about what to wear, reach into your partner’s closet for some inspiration. Enjoy.

I know I don’t usually blog about men’s fashion but I hae been inspired by all the courageous men out there who would dare to take this trend from the runway to the streets and wear feminine colors. It is risk by most times it pays off. Most guy I have see actually look great in these colors. I absolutely love it and I personally think there are no limits to the colors you let your guy sport; just make sure it works for him skin tone and he is Ok with it.

Hey Ladies; Mustard is not just for your hot-dog any more, it is a fabulous condiment to spice up your wardrobe. Mustard yellow has been pretty hot this year and we saw it again during fashion week; it is still going strong. I would definitely wear mustard yellow head to toe, but if you are not that brave, start with the little things like accessories. Because Mustard yellow is an intense color, pair with nudes or other bold contrasting colors. With this color, there no middle grounds, you are either bold or demure.
Warehouse uk you can pair this with a turquoise skirt or skinnies and nude pumps.
I heart this look so much
1. I’ prefer black or Neutrals for metalics: Because metallics are shiny, they wear on differently on various figures; but with black and neutrals you have nothing to worry about.
2.I ‘d prefer Gold, Silver or Bronze after Black and Neutrals; it is easier to wear than a pop of color.
3. I’d also prefer accessories: Another easy way to wear metallics is by sporting it as an accessory especially if you are not sure of how it would look on you; wear a metallic show or bag or scarf and you are good to go.
4. For Bright colors, wear metalics as a one piece as a dress or a jumpsuit. wearing bright colored metallics as separates can make you look too colorful.
5. Wear with a pop of color probably on your feet.
6. Keep your metallics to the slimmest part of the body. The light reflection will grab attention
7.You can wear it which ever way, but I’ prefer it minimal.
