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?

Running to the shower after reluctantly dragging myself out of bed so as not to contract hypothermia; wearing so many layers that I can barely move my arms; and practically cooking in my bed as the temperature of my electric blanket gets cranked up to the max.
Admittedly, I do feel the cold more than most. While I shiver under a duvet clutching a hot water bottle whilst watching TV, my mum is perfectly comfortable in jeans and a t-shirt. I have taken to stealing her fleeces for office wear as I am consistently told off for switching on the heater on the sly, resulting in a lot of hot and bothered colleagues.
However, whether these abnormally warm-blooded people like it or not, winter is on its way and it's time to get prepared on the cheap!
