In fashion, as the new year’s comes. It’s usual for these brands and labels to come up with some new sort of ideas and creations that they market for us consumers this new year. Because fashion evolves that fast today and that was also how the fashion runs these days on. I actually had an lazy mind today but I am still trying though to post this up for me to have my blog archive for the first month of the year 2014. Anyway, let me share with you this awesome new kicks of the shoe brand called Adidas where they did based the shoes for this year’s theme which “Year of the Horse”. The shoes is looking fine on me though it has just an usual design of the brand and yet the patter and prints of it gives this accentual touch which made the shoes still looking quirky. Definitely, the shoe is dope and must have for us men as we wanted ourselves to be hip for today’s fashion.

They called the kicks – Adidas Superstar 80s “Year of the Horse” and as I’ve heard. It may cost us $100 USD , quite affordable, at the Adidas mortar stores either in some online affiliate stores like Sneaker Politics. Head over to Sneaker Politics main website now and you can see the availability of this kicks and how you can get it for yourself. Okay, that will be all for now and I look forward for the betterment of this site these months ahead and wishing you all a great new year there. Have a great day!

Saving More Through Online Shopping

I do most of my shopping online now that I have discovered its advantages. Since my schedule is loaded, not even having the time to do some of my errands, internet shopping has provided me with some precious hours. It is more convenient, faster, and easier. I no longer have to brave traffic or wait in line for minutes. I do my shopping anywhere I am, anytime. I also like the fact that there are more choices and I am able to save more because most of the items are cheaper than those you find at the mall. Furthermore, there are a lot of online stores that provide free shipping and big discounts.

I have a couple of favorite online shops and they accept coupons, which are one of the most popular marketing and advertising strategies used by manufacturers and sellers to attract new customers. You are able to use them to buy items for free or half the price or get free shipping. They are also easy to find. There are even hundreds of websites offering them such as VoucherKing. It has the latest voucher codes from 1,000 of your favourite retailers in the UK like AbeBooks, Adidas, Accent Clothing, Barker and Stonehouse, Diesel, Fashion for Home, Papa John’s, Panasonic, The Body Shop etc. Their Debenhams Voucher codes include so many amazing deals.

Recently on the news, Lee Jong Suk & Ha YeonSoo are now the new faces of the brand name SKIN FOOD for this 2013. Beside this information, I wanted to give weight on the Korean Fashion trends this year 2013 which can be seen at these guys styling here. For Korean girls. They are fond of showing their legs most of the time, but they haven’t usually wearing this sexy top which can shows their back area and chest area or these cleavage type of dress where we can usually seen at these western peeps.

You can check out the video below for you to know further details about this Korean fashion trend 2013.

For guys, I’d often see them wearing this skinny ankle pants , like what the guy wearing on the top photo, and they usually pair it with the nicely dress shirts and have it tuck-in to be it looking neat and yet the swag in it already. Also remember that you’ll have to have this brogues type kind of shoes in you for the total look.

What I’m Loving Today

There are many online stores that cater to menswear but among the best is Northern Threads. Established in 2006 in South Shields, England, the owners’ goal was to offer their customer base the finest designer labels around coupled with an offering of the highest level of customer service there is. Since then the business has expanded and to cater for a worldwide audience Northern Threads have established a great online store.

Shoppers will definitely be at ease knowing that they are buying from experts.

You can expect to find vast ranges of clothing, accessories and footwear; from world renowned brands such as adidas Originals, Armani Jeans, Carhartt, Ralph Lauren, Onitsuka Tiger and so many more.

1.) Farah Vintage The Winchester Crew Knit – £85.00

2.) Edwin ED-39 Blue Watch Jeans – £110.00

3.) Barbour Thorn Shirt – £65.00

4.) Grenson Stanley Full Brogue – £200.00

5.) Laboratory Perfumes – £50.00

Browsing through the store, I saw some really great items such as the Farah Vintage Winchester Crew Knit, Edwin ED-39 Blue Watch Jeans, Barbour Thorn Shirt and a pair of Grenson Stanley Full Brogue all shown above. I’ve heard good things about Laboratory Perfumes too and I noticed Northern Threads stock it when I was perusing their site.

The Farah Vintage Winchester Crew Knit is a stylish crew neck knit which has a thick ribbing on the cuffs, hem, and neck and an insulating knitted material to provide warmth. They work well with those Edwin ED-39 jeans – I’m a big fan of Edwin and particularly the ed-39 style; versatile, stylish and they can literally be worn with anything, anywhere.This straight legged pair is 100% cotton, has a button fly, and has five pockets. Every man should also have the Barbour Thorn Shirt either in blue or white, this stylish shirt has a button down collar, button cuffs, and button chest pocket. You will definitely look stylish if you are wearing this along with jeans and impeccable shoes. Which brings me to another pick of mine; Grenson Stanley Full Brogue shoes, one of Grenson’s eldest shoes. An elegant hand crafted brogue with wing tip, and double leather sole. Any guy will look classy and handsome when wearing these shoes.

As I mentioned I also browsed through the Laboratory Perfumes section and saw the Laboratory Samphire 100 ml. Eau De Toilette. “This brings together the scent of fresh jutiner berries, citrus oils and lavender for a modern scent” well suited for the modern man.

I’d certainly recommend you take a look for yourself.

These pieces are so Asian. Because this how the usual Asian man rocking themselves for their casual and formal wear. Look on the blazer or coat. It is indeed nice and neat which really fits in to those skinny Asian men, not to mention me, and the pants looks so dope too that can be pair off in any kicks or loafers you got. I actually prefer this kind of styling these days or in this season summer. Because this so basic and yet fashionable that can bring comfortable feeling on your end on this hot season.

Popular K-pop Fashion Trends

South Korea is a beautiful country known for its rich culture, delicious food, and breathtaking tourist destinations. However, it is also widely known for its Korean dramas and K-pop or Korean pop. For those who do not know, K-pop is a musical genre characterized by a wide variety of audiovisual elements. It is also used to describe modern South Korean pop music like pop ballad, dance pop, rock, hip hop, R&B, electronic and many more. Nowadays, we often see countless K-pop boy and girl bands singing both Korean and English songs. Although most of us might not understand what they are saying, this does not stop us from listening to their songs, buying their albums and going to their concerts.

K-pop is also known for setting fashion trends and new styles. Some of these looks may be deemed worthy in the fashion world, but there are looks that are bordering on the extreme side, looks that ordinaly individuals might find a bit hard to wear. Since I consider myself a fashion forward person, I sometimes try to emulate the K-pop fashion trends that can be worn everyday. I do not want to overdo things lest I look like I am trying too hard. I only incorporate some of the trends into my wardrobe like for instance, wearing K-pop inspired accessories. Of course it is up to you if you want to copy the whole look. I often visit online stores such as zalora.com.ph, romwe.com and coco-fashion.com to look for K-pop inspired items.

The School Girl Look is one popular fashion trend. We often see K-pop female artists wearing preppy school uniforms that make them look innocent yet flirty. This is suitable for teenagers but for more matured women, this look will definitely not work. Wearing neon colors is another stylish trend that you can incorporate into your wardrobe. Your ensemble does not necessarily have to be neon, you can probably wear just a neon top or vice versa.

Another staple of K-pop fashion is military accents. This is a stylish look that works for both men and women. The secret to this trend is to mix the pieces into your outfit so it does not look as if you are wearing a costume. Wearing colored pants is also cool. Girl bands are seen wearing bold colors while boy bands are seen wearing pastel colors.

If you love bold animal prints, then you are just like your favorite K-pop idol. Leopard print in various shades and sizes especially. Last but not the least is clashing 80’s patterns that is suitable for people who have a bold and funky personality. You can wear any 80’s inspired print and mix it with another bold print. Accessories should be simple when you are wearing this trend.

I used to blog up this guys b2st for their musics and fashion statements on this blog, istarblog.com, often. Because look, they have the awesome styling in any appearances they’ve made. This actually an magazine photos for VOGUE Girl  that had been released last June 2013. And I must they are looked so dope here wearing these neon and bright pieces from their major sponsors. Sorry, I couldn’t able to named out their list of sponsors here or the exact brands where these awesomeness came from. Because I supposed to focused with on the magazine cover itself and to the concepts they’ve used to here.

I actually pretty envy on these styling because this really me, I mean this speaks with my style – though I used to like the plain dramatic styling like only wearing an plain tee and pair with it in plain colored shorts or pants. It’s kinda neat looking though but yet I think, I still prefer myself seeing on these colorful styling especially now we were having this summer season.

B2st is actually demand in their country today, Korea. Whether it’s on music or any related with fashion like posting for VOGUE Girl , ELLE and some sorted of magazine’s covers. They’re alike with the leading group called Big Bang which also I follow and amazed with on their deeds when it comes to their musics and fashion too. I will blog up about them ( Big Bang group) soon or they might be the next after this B2ST x VOGUE Girl. So – please keep on checking this blog for more Kpop fashion updates as well with other fashion news around the industry today.

Ps: These styling can be serves as lookbook as you, yourself didn’t know on how to style. 🙂
