Whether you’re headed off to the the movies or stepping out for Friday night festivities with the ladies, a humble white T and a pair of blue jeans are the perfect go to for a simple look. Both items are not only versatile, but they have a cool and easy going feel to them. However, I have decided switched up the concept of a humble white T and jeans for a little bit of an edgy look which also adheres to current trends and is perfect for any season! “I have often said that I wish I had invented blue jeans: the most spectacular, the most practical, the most relaxed and nonchalant. They have expression, modesty, sex appeal, simplicity.” – Yves Saint Lauren Let’s take a moment and explore the variety of denims currently making waves in the market.

The very first thing I had to come to terms with was that I need to start getting used to wearing socks and stop being childish and waking up with no socks on. Needless to say, I’m yet to master that art! Anyway, I’ve also had to let go of a lot of my pretty dresses and get to wearing more jeans and track pants.

I’m sure many of you can admit socks and hoodies make top 5 of the list of MUST JACK’s in your mans clothes, especially this winter. This look works perfectly for those lazy days where you want an effortless look which still looks pretty dope. I went super army with this one in my sock boots from Dolce Vita and a unique T-Shirt purchased during a visit to the Johannesburg Zoo. Wild much? “Style is an expression of individualism mixed with charisma. Fashion is something that comes after style. Alternatively, you can pair…

I know I’m definitely a week behind and might have missed the bus on speaking on this here topic, but a week later or not, I’m about to dive in. Many people may not know but last week was Fashion Revolution Week. I mean, I also had absolutely no clue until I kept seeing the hashtag #whomademyclothes and followed the conversation. So, what is the Fashion Revolution all about? Quote on Quote “Fashion Revolution is a global movement calling for greater transparency, sustainability and ethics in the fashion industry.” Unquote, so basically it’s all about bringing awareness to the more sidelined aspects of making a garment. It’s definitely true that there are topics which we seem to turn a blind eye on when it comes to our conversations on fashion. I’d assume it’s purely because as humans we are very content with simply focusing on the now and being satisfied…
