How to Shop for the Right Shirt

Shirts are wardrobe essentials for both men and women. And for this reason, many of us own quite a few shirts in various styles and colours. There is a wide variety of shirts to choose from in different stores. So it cam be tricky to shop for the right shirt. Here is how I go about it –

 

Shop for the right shirt by focusing on the material

Shirts come in a variety of styles and fabrics. And it can be confusing when deciding on which shirts to shop.

Style Tip – Opt for shirts with fabrics that are stretchy so you don’t lose it in the wash. But not too stretchy, or they will hug the lumps and bumps, you rather hide. It can be tricky to get this balance right. The only way you can be 100% of the fabric before you buy is to try it in the stores, so online shopping is a gamble when it comes to shopping for shirts.

A classic white shirt is a wardrobe essential, and everyone should have at least one in their wardrobe.  It can be worn to the office and dressed down with jeans for other occasions.

Style Tip – When shopping for the right shirt, it is best to go for good quality cotton for crispness. Anything less won’t cut it.

Fashion shirts are still in vogue and I like them. I have a few in my wardrobe, and plan on adding some more to my collection. They are great for taking you from AM to PM with ease and style. Fashion shirts can be teamed up with skirts or trousers, to add some softness to a tailored look.

Style Tip – When shopping for fashion shirts, go for pieces that are lined to avoid see through issues.

 

I hope you find these style tips useful when next out to shop for the right shirt. Please share any style tips that may have worked for you in the comments section below.

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 Style Jewellery with Different Outfits

I love to look good, whether it’s a day trip shopping or an evening out. I love my accessories; I believe no outfit is ever complete without accessories. And when I say accessories, of course I mean jewellery. I’m not one to splurge extravagantly and tend to stick to a few high-quality pieces of designer jewellery as an investment. I then take these and style them in the best way to complement what I’m wearing.

High class jewellery can elevate any outfit to the next level. No matter what gender you are, jewellery can add the perfect finishing touch to what you’re wearing. Here are a few ideas on how best to style your jewellery –

Complementing Not Competing

Even if you don’t tend to wear too much jewellery, a pendant or a necklace is a good choice as you can dress it up or down to match your personal style. However, it’s important to have a selection of different types of necklace as one size definitely doesn’t fit all.

If you’re wearing a V-neck top or dress, a slightly longer necklace can work really well – but make sure it’s not so long that it vanishes down your cleavage! A box, sweetheart or deep U-shaped neckline will need a much shorter necklace. If you want to show off a statement necklace or one of the modern layered necklaces, a roll neck or crew neck in a block colour will provide the perfect base.

Halter necks are the one exception: they don’t work well with necklaces. With all the emphasis on the neckline, there’s just too much going on for a necklace to be anything but a distraction. I see ladies break this rule everything and it looks horrible.

Consider Other Accessories

When you’re putting your outfit together, thinking about the colour and style of your clothing is common sense, but don’t forget about the rest of your accessories too.

Bags are a big feature point for most women and if you’ve chosen a large and chunky style, then delicate and understated jewellery will just be overpowered. You should also make sure that hair accessories such as bands and clips, plus belts, bags and shoes sync in style with your jewellery, and that the colours look good together as well.

Keep an Arm Free

There’s something very powerful about a man wearing jewellery when it’s done without any sense of overt showiness, and carried off with an almost casual air.

Designer jewellery for men has come full circle and it’s once again in vogue, but now there’s a far greater variety of materials and styles to choose from. There are precious metals such as gold and silver, as well as very contemporary designs including leather, beads and braids. Most of the rules have gone out of the window: forget about not mixing beads and leather with a smart suit. You can now find luxury men’s bracelets in a wide range of styles and materials, so you can rock that suit jacket with a braided cord if that’s what you like.

The one rule that still applies is that you should try to keep it to just one wrist. If you usually wear a watch, you’ll need to pick a bracelet which works well next to it. Wearing accessories on both wrists is still a fashion faux pas that no man should make.

Classy and Contemporary

I like to think that no matter what kind of jewellery I choose to wear, I get my styling on point. Taking a few moments to think about your outfit in its entirety can make a big difference and help you to get the most out of the accessories you’re rocking.
