Outfit Post – Catching the Golden Sun

Hey Fashion and Style Police lovers! How are we? The weather has been quite chilly here, but some days are warmer than others. I took this photo on one of those warmer days. It was a beautiful morning with some sunshine. I knew I had to make the most of the golden sun, and I am glad I did. I love the photos we shot. How is the weather at your end?

Here, I am wearing a new dress. It was a gift I got some weeks ago and I have been looking forward to wearing it. I am glad I got the opportunity to style the dress without tights now that I still can. I doubt I would be able to do so in the new few weeks. It promises to be very cold here in Cheshire in the next few weeks. So I am getting my tights and warmer clothing geared up in time for the cold weather. How are you preparing for winter? Is your wardrobe ready?

The leather blazer has been in my wardrobe for a bit now. I like it so much. It finishes this outfit beautifully, giving it this effortlessly chic look. I love how it looks here.

I have had the Boots for some years and I always enjoy styling them. They tend to go with most of my autumn/winter ensembles, which is how I like my footwear and bags. That way my wardrobe remains a capsule wardrobe, the way I like it.

Outfit Post – Fashion in Portugal

Happy Thursday Fashionistas! I took these outfit photos while holidaying in Portugal some weeks ago. It is now painfully cold in Cheshire, and I am seriously missing the warm weather we had in Portugal. I know the weather will be dark, cold and gloomy for the next few months. I know this because it happens every year but I am not ready for the extreme cold weather yet. Maybe because this is the first time I am having to do school run in the mornings. When the kids were in pre-school, they had the afternoon sessions which was great for us all as we didn’t have to leave the house in the mornings to go to school. But all that has changed now and I am not coping well 😊

So since I am finding this British weather very depressing, I am keeping myself having by staying warm and keeping the memories of our last holiday alive. In this outfit post, I am wearing a fringe dress, which is a new wardrobe addition. I got it specifically for our Portugal trip and I am glad I did. It was dead comfy and easy to style. Plus the fringe design gave the look an extra wow factor.

I needed a few casual summers pieces for the trip, so I did a cheeky online shopping days before we left and I was glad I got the pieces I got on sale. They were all less than half price!

I love this fringe dress a lot, and I am already looking forward to wearing it again once the weather changes.

How is the weather where you are? Are you missing the warm weather already? What do you think of this fringe dress?

Why Ugly Fashion is Big Business

It’s not new anymore. Ugly fashion is big business. Many designers have been creating absurd pieces and for some reason they gathered a lot of attention and interest.

For me, if a piece is not decent or wearable then I don’t go for it. But the truth is that the industry has been booming with the idea behind strange looking pieces. I’m more of a realistic fashion enthusiast. The fashion industry is thriving on such “ugly” items and I couldn’t help asking what is so special about such pieces that designers keep designing new variations of “ugly”.

Are you as curious as I am? Then here are some reasons I was able to discover why ugly fashion is big business.

 

They get social media attention

I know there have been times when I put on different outfits just to make sure that they work well for my outfit photos. That’s because I want to make sure that every photo is relatable and inspires people on great outfit combinations.

Just like me there are a lot people on social media who take their outfit photos seriously. It not only gives them recognition, it also gives something to talk about. And on social media, engagement is key.

What we term as ugly fashion is what actually creates great engagement. Ugly fashion is not just a fashion statement but something that is social media worthy. Anything that gets shares and comments works well all the time. If you don’t believe me, just ask Kanye West!

 

They are comfortable

Many consumers have confirmed that most of those ugly fashion items are comfortable and when it comes down to it, comfort is very important.

When I buy my clothes and shoes one of the things I look out for is comfort. I don’t know about you but I believe that being fashionable is not worth wearing uncomfortable clothing.

Many buyers search for comfort in any outfit they buy. They also understand the importance of staying comfortable. Imagine wearing something that keeps you self-conscious and uncomfortable for hours. You may look great but wearing anything uncomfortable is such a pain.

Since comfort is important to buyers, a good number of them would not mind if the outfit is ugly, because when you compare it with its “beautiful” alternative it wins hands down on comfort.

 

They are cheaper

It’s funny that ugly outfits are actually cheaper. Let’s face it, no matter how much money you have to spend on an outfit, the price tag still has an effect on your decision to buy that outfit. And yes, that’s where the compare game begins.

What we call ugly is actually more pocket friendly than the other finer clothing and it is totally logical for fashion lovers to go for what is affordable.

 

If ugly fashion items are social media worthy, comfortable and cheap, then that’s a real bargain to many shoppers. You will not only be considered as cool and an ardent follower of the latest trends, you’ll also be saving a lot of money. I guess, the secret behind ugly fashion has been revealed. Do you agree?
