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.

Outfit Post – Loving Summer Fashion

It feels like this summer has gone on forever. I started rocking my summer pieces since April this year. The heat wave has been on and off since then and it feels like this has this has been the longest summer ever. It is definitely the longest summer I have ever experienced in the UK. I am grateful I am able to wear a lot of my summer pieces. I hear the heat wave would be on and off until October, which is great new for summer lovers. Summer fashion has been giving me life this year and I am not in a hurry for that bit to go away. I am seriously loving the summer pieces in the stores and my outfit post category on Fashion and Style Police has been very busy.

I am wearing this stunning Rose Cami Strap Maxi Dress – Serenna. This beauty landed on my doorstep some weeks ago and it has been worn twice already! I love the design of the dress a lot. And I think the colour is really pretty too! Definitely a perfect piece for a cooler summer day. It was very easy to style and dead comfy too! It is one of those pieces you throw on when you can’t be bothered to think too much about accessories, because it goes with almost everything.

This stunning maxi dress features cami straps with a bodycon fit. The flattering body hugging style is right up my street. It is definitely a season must-have!

Outfit Post – British Fashion Blogger

As a British Fashion Blogger, I like to explore as many British Fashion Brands as possible. Over the years, I have found some amazing British Fashion brands and I tend to wear quite a few of their pieces. I love exploring when it comes to fashion and beauty, which is why my wardrobe is full of very different pieces and accessories. Variety is the spice of life!

The weather has been incredibly hot in Cheshire these last few weeks. It has been so hot and uncomfortable that wearing any sort of outfit feels like a chore. Which is why I like to wear as little as possible. I got this t-shirt in Macy’s while holidaying in the US, and I am happy I finally got around wearing it. It is dead comfy and it is a great fit. I like my t-shirt hanging loose, especially in the warm summer months. I can seeing myself wearing this t-shirt a lot this season.

The cropped leggings is also a new wardrobe addition. I love wearing leggings as I find them dead comfy and easy to style. But these last few weeks have made it almost impossible to wear them. The weather is too warm for anything but shorts. So I think this cropped leggings is a smart invention for leggings lovers like me. You get to wear a cropped version and stay cool.

I think this cropped basic leggings are a must have for any summer wardrobe. It is a stylish way of looking good and staying comfortable while this heatwave is on. You can dress it up or down, depending on the occasion. I had some errands to run, so I went for my comfy sandals.

What do you think of this look?  Are you into leggings as much as I am?
