Lookbooks or even some magazine photo styling are the one most helpful and informative as you wanted yourself to be stylish and fashionable for today’s trends industry. Because these are the basics and certainly a guide for us to know the dont and dos  we wear for us to get hip and dope above all. I actually seeing a bunch of lookbook photos from the sort of brands this very recent. I think, they were all working on it now for the upcoming season’s collection, Fall and Winter specifically. And one of the brand I’ve seen released an lookbook was this brand called SOPHNET.

I actually done blogging some pieces from this brand, SOPHNET, on this site, istarblog.com. Because I must say, most of their collection’s pieces are really speaks to my style and I simply liked the whole thing they implemented on each pieces they have done like the color blending, lining, patterns and even the clothes or the fabrics they’d used on each collection which in high in quality, I think so. And since I am an Asian, these styling are really in to us , Asians, because it is simple and yet the swagness are in to it already which most Asians are looking forward to.

In some ways, Asian fashion is quite complected. Because we used to mix and match all things we wanted without knowing the proper trends and on how the right way to wear certain pieces. And that’s how I think makes us way quirky for today’s fashion that most western people are trying to get when it comes to their styling.

The Best Fashion Trends, Styles and Accessories

A fashion style describes a wide range of clothing trends, designs and accessories, ranging from different eras, regions and affiliations. When adopting a certain fashion style, many factors should be put to consideration. Most importantly is what you as an individual adores. Many people go wrong in fashion by following trends based on what’s latest at a certain time or what the magnitude of peers and celebrities are following at the time, and in the process end up forgetting what they personally love to be seen in.

Many fashion gurus and trend setters advice that in order to achieve the best personal style in fashion, one should focus on what they think looks best in the eyes of those who matter in their lives. Go for what you feel the most stunning in. pick a fashion style that will not only look and feel good to you, but what will be attractive or seductive to whom you will be seeing on that particular day. Style is being able to identify the things that will work for a full outfit for you. Fashion on the other hand is some general design defined by society, which has a limited expiry period.

Skimpiness in the club is always the first impression, especially for the female clubwear dresses. Many girls are not able to control the amount of skin exposure when dressing for the club. In the attempt to turning as many heads, girls need to know where to draw the line. Another issue where many go wrong is on the accessories with which to accompany your clubwear dresses.

Korean artists are often featured in the Vogue Magazine these past few months ago than to the other well known persona or artists from the other countries such as Philippines, Japan and Thailand, etc. I know, Korea has a huge contributions in the world of fashion today because of their quirky styles and guts to wear all the unusual wardrobes that we could ever seen. I think that was the edge of the Korean when it comes to fashion.

Recently, the 2 main and leading Kpop artists today, Taeyang and GD – Big Bang Member, had seen in the Vague magazine March Issue 2013 , yeah! this post is quite late already but still I’ve decided to post it up for me to have an document on which kpop artists are got featured on the magazine this whole year 2013. By the next year, I’ll all update you here with all the artists they’ve got in all for the  vogue magazine month’s issues, as my compilation post.

I actually dont have any idea on these photos ads. I just only found them dope by styling themselves in this quite emo inspired looks. Nonetheless, they’re both awesome in whatsoever they’d decided to wear and in every ads they made up this year around. And am quite sure that most of you folks are starting off to find all these pieces, the brands of the pieces they’ve worn here, for you to mic mic the styling.

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.

Shopping For Quality Yet Affordable Products at Lazada Philippines

 photo lazada_logo_zpsc9d0df97.jpg

Some people do not like online shopping. There are even those who have not tried purchasing anything online. The same cannot be said about me because I love online shopping. It is such a stress reliever and something that you can do anytime, where ever you are. For me the advantages of online shopping outweighs the disadvantages that some skeptics have about it. I am a very busy person so it kinda saves me time because I do not have to go to the mall and endure all the hassle that comes with it like traffic and throngs of people in the counter.

I have several online stores that I always visit because of the wide array of products they sell. I like the ones which sell everything so if ever I need to buy several items, I will buy it all in one place and save some money on the shipping fee. One of my favorites is Lazada. I have bought several items from them and for sure I will be purchasing more in the future. There are so many things going for this store. I remember when they were just starting and now they have hundreds if not thousands of products from different categories.

Shoppers can also search for products by brand depending on the type of item you have in mind. I am interested in buying a tablet and have a choice among many brands like Acer, Apple, Asus, Cherry Mobile, Coby, Samsung, Starmobile etc. Coby is known for selling high quality products at affordable prices so I checked out their selection of tablets (click here for their other products).

The Coby Kyros MID7011 7″ Android 4.0 4GB is one of the more affordable tablets that is not lacking in features. It comes with a 7″ capacitive touchscreen which is more than enough to watch movies and play games in. It runs on Android 4.0 ICS and has a dual-core 1GHz processor and 512MB of RAM. You can efficiently do multiple things on this tablet with relative ease. Probably the best feature it has is its built-in TV tuner. Now I can watch TV anywhere I am. With its 4GB internal memory expandable to up to 36GB via a 32GB microSD, you can download all the apps, games, music, movies etc. that you want. It also has Bluetooth and WiFi connectivity.

Lazada has been generating a lot of buzz, so much so that it was recently featured on the TV show Thumbs Up, a lifestyle magazine show that scours the whole Philippines for successful and up-and-coming enterprises, places, and people. The interview with the co-founders of Lazada has really explained the whole process of shopping with this fastest-growing online store and how convenient and worry-free everything will be once you do decide to shop with them.

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. 🙂
