Fashion – January 2018 Outfits

It is that time of the month and I have an outfit recap post for you. January 2018 was an interesting on Fashion and Style Police. I published 33 posts, with a good number of them being fashion themed. I had also had the opportunity to feature 4 different outfits for your viewing pleasure. Here are the outfits featured in January 2018.

 

Cheers to the new year

This was my first outfit post of the year. It was quite popular, with loads of views and engagement. The highlight of this look is the sparkly Quiz Clothing dress. I wore it to dinner and received quite a couple of compliments. It is a great fitted dress and looks so beautiful. It is one dress I know I will wear over and over again.

Another highlight for me is the purple Michael Kors bag. It is a new addition to my bag collection, and it is currently one of my favourites. I just love it.

This was my second look in January. The highlight here is the stunning Apricot Clothing Cardigan. It is an amazing piece, that can take you from day to night effortlessly. It can also be styled up or down, which is great. The stunning blue slip-on sneakers by Russell and Bromley is another highlight. I adore the cute bow design.

This outfit was all about the beautiful blue jacket from LOTD. I have been wearing this jacket almost everyday now, and I really like it. It is super warm and the added belt makes it look so chic. Loving it!

 

What I wore on my birthday

This was my last look in January. My highlight here is the tall brown Kurt Geiger boots; I really them. The black lace Dorothy Perkins top is another highlight here. It is a beauty.

Outfit Post – Fashion Bloggers Please Dress Warm

It is my birthday in a few days and I am looking forward to celebrating the new year in my own way. Being a January baby means I get to start the new year with a birthday and align my goals to suit my new stage in life. I am still in the process of styling my birthday outfit in my head (it has to be perfect since I am a fashion blogger right?), not really decided what I would wear or what I would do on the day. But I am sure ideas would crop up closer to the date, so look out for a birthday outfit post soon.

I wore this outfit some weeks ago. The Silver Grey Long Oversized Coat With Faux Fur Hood is a new wardrobe addition. I am so in love with it. It is the right length and it feels so warm and comfy. The faux fur trim hood is an added touch of beauty and the puffy fit is great for layering this winter.

Dressing warm is so important in the winter and we fashion bloggers need to promote that a lot more. I remember when I initially started blogging, I came across a few fashion blogs that would show off outfit posts wearing summery pieces in the middle of winter, and I thought it was so unrealistic and misleading. 9 times out of 10, these bloggers would pose outside for a few minutes to get the photos taken and get back inside to wear something more sensible. Like who walks around in a mini skirt and crop top in the winter months?

I don’t play with the cold weather. I dress warm and make sure the kids are dressed warm too. So I find it crazy to see many fashion bloggers still doing this. Fashion should be stylish and comfy. You should not have to choose one over the other, when you can have both. So my fellow fashion bloggers, please think twice before you step outside to be photographed in yet another revealing outfit in the middle of winter. It looks very silly and dangerous. Health is wealth, remember that.

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?
