It has been a minute since I did any proper blogger around here. Many apologies to you all. I curated a big event on the 20th of September with the theme ‘Fashion as An Art Form’ for Fashion Industry Insiders. My biggest event to date and I am thankful to God for an amazing team that made it a success. You can check out some of the pictures on the @fashionindustryinsiders page.
Based on the topic name “breakup to make up”, I am sure some of you thought I meant this in a relationship context lol. Far from it. I think I would leave that for your relationship gurus out there.
Break up to make up is specifically talking about suits and how to get the best out of them. The typical suit by definition is a full garment with Jacket and trouser made out of the same fabric. Full suits are generally formal or at least smart depending on the type.
If you are a ‘tailoring look’ kind of person as myself, there is one skill you must master. Breaking up full suits to form mix and match combos. This skill is particularly important if you do not have a many of suits at your disposal
Where do I start? From the beginning, I guess :). Ok, attempt to make a dad joke failed, now back to the real business.
Corduroys were very popular in the 80s and parts of the 90s. As with everything fashion, they were no longer trendy and you wouldn’t be caught dead in them.. Up until two seasons ago, they had a reputation for being for granddads and grandmas. Fast forward to now when Cords have become cool again. Major fashion houses have added them to their collection for Autumn/Winter 2018/19.
Summer is all but a distance memory now. It always seem to whizz by so quickly. However, I have to say that my favourite season is Autumn but only when the temperature stays above 18 degrees Celcius lol. Ok but honestly, the first half of autumn is usually mild and temperatures are just right for a jacket or some form of light layering.
I have been meaning to recreate this look for a while but never got round to doing it. As someone who loves the tailored look, I can see why it has not been high on my agenda. However, now that I have done it, I can’t stop asking myself why I didn’t do it early enough. I absolutely love the look.
