So another week and another round-up from yours truly about what has been going on that we have missed in our articles. It’s like your Sunday paper but without it being the weekend and not on paper. Anyway, hopefully this will be a welcome break from your regular work day and/or studying, so sit back and take a ride with me around the web whilst we pick out some great new clothes, find some fantastic offers, and just generally pick up on all the smaller fashion stories this week.
So what is included in this addition? Well we have some great new check hoodies from Topman which play on the whole worker wear vibe, an AMAZING 40% Denim offer from Oki-Ni which is on a hush hush secret pre-order link until next week (i’ll hook you up), our regular outfit of the week from MyWardrobe, as well as some new collection releases from ASOS and Urban Outfitters. It should be a good one.
So let’s do it…
In order to make room for the new S/S 10 arrivals – yes we are there already! – Oki-ni are having a massive sale on some premium denim wear from this season’s range. They are offering 40% OFF but only to a select crowd, which now includes you guys! At nearly half price, this is going to be a great way for all of us to pad out our wardrobe and I have already got my hands on a pair of great Levi’s and Lee jeans yesterday. The voucher code details and the secret link are below so get there quick and pick up a bargain for yourself today!
I have taken the liberty of showcasing some of the denim available below. There are jeans and even knitwear etc. available for a real knock down price. Brands include: Levi’s, Levi’s Red and Vintage, Lee, Evisu, Kato, Simon Miller and more!
Topman have released a great new range of worker wear which as we all know, is this season’s biggest trend. These new check and plaid garments are all hooded varieties of shirts, which adds a great twist on the traditional items you can pick up right now. These have a much more relaxed and casual feel to them even though they are shirts, and would be great for layering up with a great graphic tee underneath and leather jacket over the top. Pick a bright bold colour to really make it the focal point of your outfit and pair with some great dark slim fit denim. Sorry about images, they do not like being shrunk that small obviously!
I was looking through the All Saints latest releases this week and noticed they have added some leather shirts with a check print?! Now I have never seen leather printed on like this before, and they are bound not to have them in my local store because so I was wondering if anyone had seen them and what they thought of them? I love the whole worker wear trend and I love leather jackets as well, but a mix? I am not so sure. They are slim fitting and could be worn nice and fitted with a simple tee underneath for an effortless look which should look still have an edge. There are also a few new pieces shown below that have come out this week:
Leather Check Shirts
So here we are again with the outfit of the week from MyWardrobe. On my suggestion this week we have used a roll neck piece of knitwear from Velour as I wrote an article last week about how it is becoming a bit of a trend through knitwear this season. This mixes the chunky knitwear trend (with old school print) with the roll neck cut to create an item that will be the focal point along with the boots.
We added a great officer’s coat from Burberry in a dark black that is just PERFECT for the winter season, and will smarten up any outfit in an instant. Really touches on the whole military trend along with the boots. The jeans are also slim fit and dark by Nudie which tones down the rest of the outfit so that the two key pieces really shine here. A Sophisticated and easy to put together look that works really well for the sophisticated gentleman on a dress down day.
MyWardrobe have also just released a voucher code which gives you 25% OFF all their winter essentials range, hence the reason I have updated today’s post. The voucher code is below along with the link to the specific category you can get money off.
Menswear – 25% OFF Winter Essentials
Cheap Monday seemed to come out of nowhere a few years back to produce what a lot of people in the fashion circles call the perfect skinny jeans. The reason being is that they created a bang on trend item for just ridiculous value. Their jeans come in around the £45 mark so it was easy for all the rocker boys to go out and pick up multiple pairs in multiple washes. They have just released their new range to Urban Outfitters and they seem to be as good as ever – there are even a great pair of black skinny chinos below which I love as well.
ASOS have just launched their chunky knitwear category and there has never been a better time to pick up a great knit for the ‘true’ winter period. They have over 76 varieties online from a massive array of designing talent. Here are some showcase items below for you to take a look through and see if you like. It is a massive trend this year, and one of my favourite looks is to over size and use the knitwear as a makeshift coat – obviously please make sure it is not going to rain if you do this! We do not want to spoil out beautiful fabrics! But you can then layer underneath with tees and shirts in order to create a great variation on the standard winter look. Match with some edgy fingerless or cuff gloves to really set it all off.
