Style Icon – Naomi Campbell

I have always admired Naomi Campbell. She is a strong black woman and she dresses like the Boss that she is every time she steps out. I think Naomi Campbell is a Style Icon. I have followed her style and career for decades now, and she owns it every time. This stylish beauty is one hell of a super woman.

Who is a Style Icon

Who is a Style Icon? A Style Icon is person who is very fashionable, with a distinct look. Style Icons set the pace in the fashion world. They are fashion leaders everyone wants to emulate.

When I think of Style and Fashion, I think of Naomi Campbell. I think she has an amazing fashion sense. Her personal style from her hair to her footwear is always on point. The world is her runway, and everyday is a fashion show once she steps out.

This woman is style goals for me anyway. I wish I could pull off some of the pieces I see her rocking.

Naomi Campbell does not believe a model should have an off day, even if she is not working. So you won’t catch her dressed in ripped jeans or worn out t-shirts. Campbell is always looking the part of a style muse; she never switches that off. Now this might look like a lot of work for many of us, who can’t be bothered looking all put together all day, everyday. But for this Style Icon, it comes naturally.

Campbell is a 24/7 muse. She never steps out without looking her best. Which means her makeup is always perfectly done, hair expertly styled, and stylish designer pieces styled up.

How to Wear Slogan Tees and Tops

Slogan tees are so fashionable. Whether you’re fashion conscious or not you should have a couple of slogan tees in your wardrobe. At first, slogan tees came as a means of promoting brands or products. But now slogan tees share meaningful or witty messages that everyone can relate with or have a good laugh at.

As part of your signature outfits, slogan tees make great statement pieces that add a lot of character to your style.

I have been doing a lot of experimenting lately and I discovered really awesome combinations you should give a try. Here are some ideas how to wear slogan tees and tops.

Style slogan tees and tops with a blazer or jacket

Let’s start with something less obvious. Want to achieve that relax laidback look? Layer a blazer or jacket over your slogan tee or top. It’s also great if you want to achieve the smart casual look.

Don’t hide the slogan by buttoning or zipping up. The idea behind a slogan tee is to pass a message, so you have to show it.

The blazer adds dimension to your outfit. Make sure you choose a blazer that suits your body type so that the blazer accentuates your share while making you look fashionable.

Have you tried wearing a bomber jacket over your slogan tee? The bomber jacket creates that relaxed look and it’s really suitable during the spring months.


Style slogan tees and tops with denim

This is a classic combination. No matter the colour of style of your slogan tee or top it works well will denim. There’s a way the crisp denim suits t-shirts and tops. Denim is timeless and you can never go wrong when styling with your slogan tees and tops.

Layer your slogan tee over a pair of jeans. You may choose to wear skinny jeans or flares or a skirt for those hot summer months.

You can also try styling your slogan tee with a denim jacket too. In fact, you can go all denim with your slogan tee. The colour of your slogan top will give your outfit contrast as well as making the slogan stand out.

Don’t be afraid to layer slogan tees and tops over different coloured denim. For example, black denim is pretty popular and it works really well with a slogan tee.

Try colour blocking

If you think how you wear your slogan tees and tops all depends on what item of clothing you combine it with, then you’re wrong. The colour of the piece of clothing you combine your slogan tee with plays an important role too.

The technique called colour blocking will help you choose outfits that will give your slogan tee more definition. Colour blocking is an art. It involves the combination of colour from different ends of the colour spectrum.

There are different approaches to colour blocking. A quick way to choose the right colour to wear with your slogan tee is to pick a colour on your slogan tee and style it with trousers, skirt, jacket or blazer of the same colour.

If you have bright green writings on your white slogan tee, then style it with trousers of the same colour. Another way is to choose opposite colours. For example, on the colour wheel, the opposite colour of green is red. So if we go with the same white slogan tee with green writings then you can go for a bold red skirt and still looks fashionable.

Secrets Of A Fashionista: What To Pack For A Summer Vacation

It doesn’t matter whether you’re planning your annual all-inclusive getaway to some far-flung exotic destination or whether you are simply heading to a Balearic to escape the winter chill, you need to know what to pack and how to pack it to get the most out of your holiday. Just because your travelling or venturing on a long haul flight doesn’t mean you have to forfeit your fashionista credentials. It simply means you need to think a little more outside of the box to ensure you are able to take all of your desired attire, beauty products and accessories with you. With baggage allowances remaining pretty stringent, there’s no way you can take your entire summer wardrobe alongside your extensive range of makeup and skincare items. Instead, you need to pack light and smart.

Many people now prefer to travel with cabin luggage only. This means you can keep your belongings with you at all times and there’s little risk of your suitcase ending up in Iceland when you’ve travelled to Ibiza. However, this also means your bag is smaller, and you have to be even more efficient with your use of space. Take a look at how you can pack wisely and fashionably for your escape to the sun.

It goes without saying that the majority of your packing will be taken up with your choice of attire. The best thing about heading somewhere where the weather is reliably hot, sunny and balmy for extended periods is that you don’t have to take any monster chunky knits or duffle coats that can take up an obscene amount of space in your bag. Instead, you’ll be looking at the lighter linen based pieces. You could choose two or three summer dresses from Anthony’s ladies apparel collection, a few sarongs, light tops and a shawl or long sleeved top for those chillier evenings. These items of clothing will roll effectively ready for you to pack. Rolling instead of folding not only saves space but also prevents creasing meaning that you can land, head to your hotel, check-in and whip on a summer dress without the need to iron beforehand.

If you’re heading off on a fortnight-long jaunt, take enough clothing to last your holiday. With the thinner, lighter fabric clothing that you’ll be taking, you will be surprised just how much you can squeeze into a 40-litre capacity holdall. Put your socks into your shoes and ensure you leave the chunkier items of clothing at home.

For those evenings where you want to dance the night away, or you fancy a trip to a top-notch restaurant to experience a culinary masterpiece, a pair of more formal shoes and a clutch bag to match with your summer dress will ensure you look elegant. Utilising elements of a capsule wardrobe frame of mind when packing for your summer holiday always comes in handy.

If you love nothing more than opening your drawers and cupboards full of a wide variety of makeup products each morning to apply the finishing touches to your daily beauty routine, you may have to think again when it comes to taking your kit on holiday. Liquid limits on UK flight dictate you can have only 100ml of each separate liquid you wish to take on holiday in clear containers in cabin luggage. This means you may have to think wisely as to whether you can go without your smoothing serum or anti-ageing cream for a fortnight. Remember, you probably aren’t travelling to a destination where they don’t have shops! Anything you can’t squeeze into your bag, you can locate when you land.

At the very least you should take moisturiser, cleanser, a toner and an exfoliator. With these for essential items, you will still be able to care for your skin while away from home. If you love watersports, taking in the rays on the beach or getting active in the sun, your skin needs protection. Purchase the highest quality sun cream that you can and keep reapplying throughout the day. The integral moisturiser within these lotions will also keep your skin supple and hydrated.

When packing your beauty products, the worst thing that could possibly happen is opening your bag on landing to discover a mini explosion amongst your clothes. To limit the chances of this happening, package your liquids in containers and ensure they are sealed. Package these containers in a well-sealed toiletry bag so that there is that extra insurance layer between the liquids and your clothes.

If you are a selfie addict and love nothing more than being in every shot of your vacation, then a smartphone may well suffice for your needs. However, if you like to think of yourself as a budding photographer, you might want to consider ditching the Holga and Valencia filters and branching out into a travel DSLR piece of kit. With more manual controls and greater resolutions, you could create the perfect landscape shots, candid close-ups and sophisticated holiday snaps that will enable you to document your memories.

Even if you aren’t venturing to the middle of nowhere and you are planning on staying firmly with civilisation, you should consider packing a powerpack. These nifty bits of kit can charge up your camera battery, smartphone and MP3 player on the go, meaning that if you have forgotten to charge something the night before or if you’re on a mammoth bus tour or train journey, you can still listen to your favourite tunes and take some awesome shots. Being comfortable will make your holiday all that more enjoyable.

If you’re heading to a far-flung destination this summer to catch some rays, take a dip in the sea, enjoy a snorkel or simply relax by a pool, think about how you are going to pack for your holiday. Use this guide as inspiration to ensure you don’t surrender your fashionista credentials when you venture away from home.
