Fashion World – The Death of the High Street

Incase you have not noticed we are currently witnessing the death of the high street in the fashion world. Many high street shops are closing down all over the UK. The big fashion/retail giants are not left out of this, many of them have closed down a lot of their stores, and some have closed all of them, moving their business full online. The death of the high street is happening and it is quite sad to see many of my favourite shops leave. It is also horrible to know many people have lost their jobs as a result of this crisis. It makes you wonder what the high street would look like 10 years from now.

The number of high street shops have been decreasing in the UK for many years now. Research has shown that shops in the UK have been decreasing for at least a century. Internet giants like Amazon and eBay have contributed to this decline. Many people like me rather shop online and have it delivered. Life is too busy to go into the shops to spend hours looking for what you want. It is a lot easier using the search bar on the brand’s website.

Nowadays, many people rather shop online which means business is slow in the brick and mortar section. Also, running a business online is a lot cheaper than having shops around. The online costs running a business  are between 10 per cent and 20 per cent less than running high street shops.This new way of life revolving around the big wide web has contributed massively to the death of the high street.

Some writers argue that the online shopping trend will stop in a few years and people will go back to shopping in stores. I don’t agree with that at all. That is like saying people will go back to renting DVDs over streaming on Netflix. I think shopping online trend is here to stay especially in the fashion world. It is just too convenient for consumers and cheap for businesses to run. Which is why I don’t see it going away. What I do see is the gradual death of the high street in the fashion world. More and more shops will close for good on the high street, and focus their energy and attention on running their businesses online. The future is online and the faster we embrace it, the better the shock will be for all of us.

Why your clothes don’t fit right

Many of us wear clothes that don’t fit right. Walking around in ill-fitting clothes does nothing for our body shape and it could put a dampen on our mood if most of our clothes don’t look good on us. I have discovered that a lot of people have no clue what to look out for when picking clothes. They just look at the design and colours, pick a size they think would fit them and run with it. That is how to pick clothes that don’t fit you. If you want to know how to select clothes that fit right then keep reading.

Don’t squeeze in!

The first step in buying clothes that fit is to get them in the right size. Don’t be tempted to get a size smaller and squeeze in. It won’t look good on you. Remember that jacket/coat sleeves should hit the wrist bone. The sleeves should be slim to show off the shape of the arms but loose enough to allow you wear a top underneath.

 

Can you bend?

When buying jackets, coats and tops, make sure you can bend your arms easily. Ensure you can bend your knees too when trying on jeans, skirts and dresses.

 

Check the trousers!

Check that the trouser you have an eye on doesn’t have excess material in the zipper and crotch area. This is very important as some of them tend to have more than the fabric required here.

Can you tuck in that shirt?

Ensure the shirt you have on can be tucked in neatly. Some shirts are not long enough to tuck in because the designers scrimp on fabric at the bottom of the shirt. Don’t go for shirts like that unless you enjoy tucking in your shirt every 30 minutes.

 

Go for comfortable clothing.

Avoid clothing that isn’t comfortable to wear. Any garments that feels uncomfortable or painful to wear isn’t worth the hassle. Style and comfort go hand in hand. You can’t be stylish if you are not comfortable.

 

Are the buttons in the right places?

Before you buy a new piece, check where the buttons are. This is really important as where the buttons are can make or break the entire look. I hate it when buttons have gaps in between them that reveal the cleavage. That can be so embarrassing.

When opened, the top buttons should sit just above the bust.

 

Are you familiar with any of these clothing issues?

 

Outfit Post – Cheshire Fashion Blog UK

Hey Fashion Lovers! Another week, another fashion blog for you. I have been slacking the outfit post category for some weeks now. Life got in the way but things are cooling down now so it is back to business as usual in the fashion and style department. This blog started purely as a fashion blog, and I truly enjoy writing about fashion and style, and showing off my personal style.

I wore this outfit some days ago. The weather in Cheshire has been great in the last few days. We have had sunny days and still a bit of rain, but I can’t complain. It is a lot better now than how it was some weeks ago. Long may the good weather continue.

This look was super easy to style. I put the look together from scratch within 5 minutes. I didn’t even have to overthink it, which is the beauty of having a capsule wardrobe. Every piece just falls in the right place.

I am wearing an African print blouse I got some years ago. I love wearing this piece especially in the summer months. It is dead comfy to wear all day if needed, and it is super easy to style too!  Everything else I have on is from my existing wardrobe, except my sunglasses, that is a new addition. I got the sunglasses some weeks ago. It is the latest addition to my sunglasses collection and my current favourite. I love the oversized shape and the colour. It ticks all the right boxes for me.
