Play safe with print accessories

If you are new to wearing prints, you could start off with print accessories like scarves, footwear and bags, to see how comfy you are wearing them. If you are wearing print accessories, it is more stylish to tone down the rest of your look so the focus is on the print accessories alone.Printed accessories is a lighter way to gradually introduce prints to your wardrobe.

Animals prints are easy to style

Animal prints are my favourite. They are easy to style and look amazing. You can also wear animal prints all year long, not just in the summer. Which makes them great wardrobe investments.

Wear two different prints in one colour

A lovely way to wear different prints is to pick two different prints in one colour. That way, the whole look stays nicely blended.

Style two prints in contrasting colours

If you want a bolder look, another great to wear prints is to style two prints in contrasting colours. That way the entire look just pops in a stylish way.

Pair colourful prints with neutral prints

Pairing colourful prints with neutral prints is a lovely way to wear different shades of prints. I love doing wearing my prints like this.

Wear prints with other patterns

You can also wear prints with other patterns. Polka dots and prints always look good.

The Fashion Designer Dream

I once had a dream to be a fashion designer many years ago. Fashion and Style has always been my thing, so naturally I had a fashion designer dream. Along the way, I discovered I didn’t have what I needed to succeeded as a fashion designer. Loving fashion and creating fashion designs are 2 different things. I need to know how to sketch, sew, make clothing adjustments and more. Being a fashion designer is a dream for many young girls, but to succeed as a fashion designer, you need certain skills.

Life as  a fashion designer didn’t happen

Once I realised fashion designing was not for me, I moved over to fashion styling. I didn’t need the sketching or sewing requirement for a successful fashion designer. All I needed here was an eye and love for fashion. I found the London College of Style Styling Course very exciting. It was a distance learning course I took for a few months in 2012, and I graduated with a good mark. However, midway into the styling course, I realised it wasn’t quite what I want. The reality of my life as a fashion stylist wasn’t appealing so I decided to pursue the personal shopping route which I did for awhile.

 

The fashion styling journey led to a different destination

My dream of becoming a fashion designer then a fashion stylist led to the birth of Fashion and Style Police. Having a fashion blog was a requirement for the styling course at London College of Style. This blog started off as fashion blog required to finish off my course but it led to a whole new career. What this has taught me is that life is complicated and sometimes what we want is not what we need. It has also taught me that the destination we are aiming for is usually not where we end up. We end up where we are meant to be.

My love for fashion and style continues

I am happy where I am. Fashion and Style is still very important to me. I enjoy writing about fashion but the whole fashion designing/styling career no longer appeals to me. Life as a fashion designer won’t have worked for me long term if I am being completely honest. I have also stopped the personal shopping. I did that for some time and it worked great when it did but it is not a career I want for myself anymore.

 

I have gone through many career changes but every change takes me to a better place. I am about to embark on yet another change and this is a big one. Very different from anything I have ever done but it is so me. I will be shedding some more light on this career in the next couple of weeks, so keep reading.

Have you had any major career changes? How did you find it? I would love to hear your thoughts. Please drop your comment in the comments section below. Thanks for stopping by.

  1. Breathable Basics

Many celebrities have been spotted by the paparazzi sporting the same styles athletes have worn for decades. Check out recent pictures of celebs spotted out jogging or heading to or from the gym, and you’ll see that most tend to wear comfortable and stylish garments that wick away moisture. The right clothing, accessory and footwear choices can increase breathability and limit sweat buildup from head to toe. Keep blisters at bay by wearing men’s athletic shoes or women’s shoes made at least partially out of woven materials such as mesh to promote airflow.

 

  1. Swimwear

 You don’t need to scroll too far down your Instagram feed or your favorite star’s grid to come across swimsuit pictures from beaches and music festivals. Men and women can sport celebrity-inspired looks without spending designer dollars. Shop online to find the best deals on bikinis, one-pieces and swim shorts from trending brands to beat the heat.

 

  1. Essential Loungewear

 Summertime isn’t complete without some time spent resting and recuperating with friends and family. Pick up some celeb-inspired loungewear and get ready to gather by the water, around the campfire or just hang out at home. Think cool linen garments and other soft, fast-drying materials that are resistant to stains and wrinkles. Browse gossip and style blogs to see what your favorite celebs wear while kicking back and enjoying the season.

 

  1. Lots of Layers

 Some summer mornings or evenings can be surprisingly cool. Celebrity candids show stars wearing or carrying extra layers to help them stay comfortable during breaks on set or while traveling. You can also stay comfortable at all hours and in a wide range of weather conditions with the right layers. Consider breathable three-quarter sleeve or long-sleeved shirts or pullovers that can provide physical sun protection and deter mosquitoes.

Activewear has become so popular that there is no longer any need to sacrifice style to stay cool and prepare for any warm-weather activities. There are also fewer limits to where you can sport activewear, especially as a layer. Select pieces that will help you stay comfortable while you spend time outside, run errands and kick back and relax this summer. You don’t have to spend as much as the stars for similar styles. Try comparison shopping online to find Puma sneakers for sale and low prices on other athletic shoes, clothes and accessories.
