This week's fashion dilemma will ring a bell for many of you attending any sort of function this summer - just what does casual dress mean? I received this query from one of our readers, alantheirishman.
My girlfriend's work is having a Summer party down by the Thames in
early July. Invite says 'casual' but how casual should I make it? My
definition of casual is jeans, flipflops and a button down shirt.
Day 6 - The final day of Fashion Week is reserved for the boys. As with women's fashion this year many menswear designers made great use of a wide range of colours. While the standard black and grey palette were as dominating as ever, burgundy seemed to be a safe bet for any one waiting to break free. Of course we saw our share of skirts for men worn by very unhappy looking male models but I don't think society on large is ready yet for this barrier crossing. I don't think I'm ready for it and I'm also not ready to help you fellas dress in neons and polka dots. While I truly love seeing men on the street making bold fashion decisions, I will never be the girlfriend that picks out my man's outfits - if I did it would be a boring mess. So boys, here are my highlights from this year's fashion week but please go visit the London Fashion Week homepage to see what great clothing choices you think I mistakenly passed on.
Men are notoriously difficult to buy for, especially when you've
left it this late in the day to shop for them but with these ideas and
their savings even the most difficult man will be happy on Christmas
day. Read on for our choice of the top last minute gifts for the man in your life
As the days grow shorter, the nights get colder, and the leaves
start changing colour, we're all going to be packing away our
summer clothes and bringing out slightly warmer attire. However, it
seems the buzz this Autumn is all about mens underwear, and no,
your eyes are not deceiving you, this is a picture of the very
latest in menswear - tights, or as they have more affectionately
been dubbed, Mantyhose.
Not content with the sarong-wearing fashion statement a la David
Beckham, or the 'manbag' courtesy of Mr Pitt, it seems that today's
metrosexual man is now impinging on the most sacred of female
clothing, the pantyhose. So, if like me, you're already thinking
along the lines of Errol Flynn and his band of Merry Men, well I
can't say I blame you. I mean what are they thinking?
There have been many stories in the tabloids about people who save money using vouchers, mulitbuys, discounts and other smart ways to reduce the everyday cost of living. You've probably seen people who have stockpiled their spare bedroom with enough loo rolls to last a year or two or maybe know a few people who spend hours cutting out 10p coupons from the local free ads.
Well, here at Savoo, we are firm believers in the old adage 'Look after the pennies and the pounds will look after themselves', which is why we've launched the search for the UK's smartest shopper. We're not talking about super scrimping tips like re-using teabags. We 're looking for an altruistic 'someone' who is passionate about saving money and equally passionate about sharing that knowledge with other people.
Of course, the prize isn't too shabby either. The winner will not only receive a hefty £10,000 but he or she will also have the opportunity to work with us to create an award winning, money saving blog.
If diamonds are a girl's best friend, then Elizabeth Taylor certainly had no shortage of chums. This week her legendary jewellery collection went on sale and, in true legend style, records were broken. Speaking of breaking records, world famous androgynous male model Andrej Pejic has been hired to model push-up bras! Yes, an unnaturally thin man with nothing more than nipples is modelling push-up bras for ladies! This week's fashion highlights are filled with dreams and delusions.
