Fashion and Style Police is Going Even More Personal

This October will make it 5 years of blogging. It has been 5 years of highs and lows, and I have learnt so much. I feel it is now time for me to take Fashion and Style Police to a different level, and blog slightly differently. Fashion and Style Police is Going Even More Personal!

 

 

 

So what are the changes to expect on Fashion and Style Police?

You may have noticed a slight change in the look of the blog. Well, I paid for the business package on WordPress. I contemplated doing that for some time now, but the price tag was a bit heavy. I decided to just do it last week for many reasons. With this business package, I have more control of the look of my blog. I have made a few changes thanks to some fantastic plugins I have installed. And I think this is a great way to start a new blogging chapter. I am so looking forward to the amazing opportunities that would surely come.

Apart from the new look of the blog, the content published on here will also change. I want them to be even more personal. So there would be lots of more photos and some blogging series would be scrapped. The Magazine Covers category would be scrapped, along with the Fashion Criminals category. All old posts in both categories would remain on the blog, but no new ones would be added, and I won’t be actively promoting the old blog posts in both categories but will be linking back to them where necessary.

I have contemplated stopping this blog series for months now, and I have finally decided to end it. Reading magazines and writing about them is one of my favourite things, but I believe it is time to give up the time and space for other projects.

I am also going to scrap the Who Wore It Better posts, as well as the Yay or Nay posts. Just like I stopped writing about Red Carpet Awards Fashion, I think it is time to give these up as well. However, the Beauty Muse and Style Icon categories would still stay on for now.

 

 

 

 

 

What’s New on Fashion and Style Police?

There shall be more outfit posts, product review posts and lifestyle posts. I hope to host more giveaways, so look out for those as well. There would be quite a few more fashion, beauty, self-employed/freelance and blogging tips posts as well. Basically, it is going to be the same blog you have been reading all these years but with a more personal touch. You would be reading and seeing a lot of what I am wearing, reading, trying, eating and what I am up to in general. So more travel and more of me than anything else! I will also be introducing some new blog series so look for those as well.

Cheers to the new month of August and the rest of the year. May it be a good one for us all. Have a lovely day and look out for my next post.

How to Look Stylish on a Tight Budget

Who doesn’t want to look trendy and chic? To get the perfect look means you need to make a considerable investment in your wardrobe. But with a very limited budget, it can be very tricky. So how do we look stylish on a tight budget then? The truth is that you don’t necessarily have to spend a lot of money to look good. With just a little investment and some tweaks, you can look just as stylish as someone who has spent hundreds or thousands of pounds.

 

 

 

 

The trick to looking stylish is not exactly in the money spent on the clothing, rather, it is how you carry the pieces and combine them to achieve the style that people envy. In this article, I’ll show you just how you can look stylish on a tight budget. You’ll soon see that it’s not as difficult as the fashion gurus make you think it is.

 

The little things matter

The best things come in small packages, they say.  Little additions can go a long way in making you look really stylish. A good weapon, is your choice of accessories. Lovely looking accessories like a beautiful necklace or a pair of earrings can upgrade your outfit. The best part is that there are so many accessories that are really inexpensive but can dazzle your outfit in a big way.

 

Go back to the basics

Some people tend think that trendy outfits have to be elaborate. That’s not the case. Basic clothing like a t-shirt, a pair of jeans or a simple pencil skirt can look just as stylish. And they don’t have to cost so much. A slogan tee and a pair of jeans look really trendy.

 

Shop during the off-season

Did you know that you could get quality clothing at a low price during the off-season? Who would have known that right? It may seem a little strange buying summer clothing during the winter, but if you want to enjoy some designer clothing at a low price then you could do a little off-season shopping and shop for the coming season.

 

 

 

Choose clothes that have a neutral palette

More often than not, the colour of your clothing can go a long way than you think. Neutral palette like beige, white and even black can make really stylish pieces. A lovely black dress, perfectly styled with your favourite jewelry could make you look extremely stylish even if you don’t spend a penny.

 

Get creative with layering

The way you mix and match your clothing is a pretty effective way to look stylish on a tight budget. Usually, there is really no need to buy new clothes from head to toe before you can look stylish. But if you combine the clothes you already have and invest a little to cover the difference then you have an amazing outfit.

 

Stick with stylish timeless pieces

You know those items of clothing that never go out of style no matter the year we’re in? Those are the type of clothing you should go for. You may even have quite a number of stylish clothing in your wardrobe already!

Find out those evergreen stylish pieces, like a pair of blue jeans and style it with a nice looking top that you can buy from a thrift store at a bargain. Put on the trendiest pair of heels you’ve got in your wardrobe and a set of matching jewelry. No one would ever know the difference.

How to Rock the Casual Chic Look

If you’re looking for something simple yet fashionable this summer then this should be your go-to style. The casual chic look is one that never grows old. It’s easy to put together, comfy and trendy. In fact, it’s one of my favourites.

This summer, it’s all about having that laid-back vibe and this look pulls it off perfectly. From A-list celebrities to those who walk on the street, this style is by-far one of the most popular styles you’ll ever meet. You can rock the casual chic using almost any style of piece, from vintage style to modern/contemporary style.

Here are some tips on how you can recreate the casual chic look and be fabulous this summer.

Floral print

Floral print pieces are a favourite every summer. From tops, to skirts and trousers, there’s really no limit to what you can do with them. To look more casual, layer a floral patterned top over light coloured bottoms like a white skirt or a pair of white shorts. That way you are able to not only bring out the casual look of the floral top, you also look quite chic, simple and comfortable. That’s the whole essence of casual.

 

Denim

Denim cuts across all seasons and summer is not going to be left out. This summer, you’ll see more denim shorts, jeans and capris. Denim is universally known as depicting ease and casual, so having it as your go-to piece for the summer will help you hit the right style mark.

Keep it simple with a nice t-shirt or just to add some fun to it, wear a slogan tee – it always makes a good read. Finish off with a nice pair of sunglasses to perfect the look.

 

Chiffon tops and dresses

Lovely, light and flowing chiffon is the true definition of summer. It’s fun and playful. It’s also a big plus when you have the heat wave to worry about. Chiffon tops and dresses are trendy and casual, and quite feminine too. Style it with a long necklace to add more charm to your style. You can wear your chiffon top over a pair of shorts to make your outfit look more relaxed.

 

Striped pieces

Effortless yet stylish; striped clothing makes any ensemble look casual. This is a piece that should be included while you are styling outfits this summer. Take a striped sleeveless top and layer it over a nice pair of jeans. This makes you look laid back and captures the real essence of casual chic.

To complete the look, you can wear a gold chain to give it an even more chic look.

 

Candy coloured outfits

Although your choice of clothes plays a big role in how you can pull off the casual chic look, your choice of colour can also make a huge difference.

This summer try adding more candy colours into your outfits. Colours like pale yellow, light blue and peach look great in the summer. Feel free to add a heavy dose of white to the mix as well. White can help tone down dark colours and give you that casual feel.

 

What do you think of these style tips? Are you a fan of the casual chic look?
