Gender roles when it comes to fashion

Gender roles when it comes to fashion

I have always said that fashion is a form of art and that it is something that everyone should enjoy. It’s not something that should ever be taken too seriously. And I will forever stand by that. So why is it that in a society like today’s are we still told what we should wear, who even cares anymore. 

Back in 2016 Louis Vuitton changed the game when Jaden smith starred in their womenswear campaign. This was revolutionary. For the first time ever a man was featured in a womanwear campaign. Louis vuttion pushed so many limits with this campaign and it truly paid off. It was exacly what the world needed at the right time. 

I feel as though we now accept women wearing men’s clothing, yet it’s still a little taboo for a man to wear women’s clothing. But why? The world has never been more accepting than it is now! Don’t be afraid to wear what u want because at the end of the day who gives a shit. As long as you’re happy and comfortable with what your wearing nothing else matters, forget the haters and those who judge you because at least you’re being you! 

The world is quickly evolving and more and more people are starting to accept the idea of wearing anything that they like. Just because you carry a woman’s bag doesn’t make you want to become a woman or gay and just because you wear a suit it doesn’t make you a tomboy. From an early age we are given the perception that boys and girls can only wear certain items but as time goes on people are starting to forget this idea and let their children make up their own minds which I love! 

Although we are entering a new age where we wear whatever we want we can never get rid of clothing norms because they are the basis of fashion. We need to be able to know where to shop and more importantly which fashion weeks to go to and we also have to remember that this is not everyone’s cup of tea. 

Can you pull off a bum bag?

Can you pull off a bum bag?

Every few seasons, designers try to give bum bags or the fanny pack the time of day and usually it’s not very successful. However it seems that this is the year that the bum bag is finally receiving it’s day in the sun. Can’t say I’ve ever really been a huge fan of the bum bag but I feel like the more I see it the less ugly it becomes to me. I have always viewed it as something that you wear to a festival not your average bag. But I feel as though designers are in a way trying to change the way that we view the bum bag with all of these cool designs that they’re releasing recently. 

Although they may not go with your outfit, in a way bum bags are quite practical, I mean u don’t have to worry about deals or anything and all your things are right In front of you. If you want to purchase a bum bag I say go for it!

My favourite bum bags on the market right now;

 

 

 

Crochet Swimsuit; The only swimsuit you need this summer

Crochet Swimsuit; The only swimsuit you need this summer

The crochet swimsuit is definitely dominating the summer of 2017 and I cant say I hate it. Later this summer I am going to Ibiza and there is no doubt that I’ll probably be packing more than one crochet swimsuit, they’re so beautiful and I cannot wait to show you guys! Are any of you going anywhere nice this summer? If so please let me know in the comments!
 
I am so ready to get my skin out this summer, the weather in the UK has been nothing but bipolar so far which is no surprise; one minute the suns beaming and the next it’s pouring. However, summer is slowly creeping up on us and it is in my opinion the best time to experiment with your fashion choices, take a risk and have fun with your wardrobe, treat your self on pay day because you’re only young once, so make the most of it, wear whatever the hell you want.
 
Crochet is another comeback trend however this time with a twist! Is 2017 the new 90s? Crochet was no surprise huge in the 90s and this year it has come back into our lives in the form of a swimsuit/ bralet. 
 
The great thing about a crochet swimsuit is that you’re not limited – you can also where the bikini top as a bralet or crop top making it perfect for festival season and summer days. And they go with anything and everything, my favourite combo is by far a ripped pair of mom shorts and a crochet bralet. You cannot go wrong! 
 
Every major fashion outlet is selling crochet  this season, in my opinion it’s the trend to wear this summer. You’d be a fool not to purchase anything crochet this summer! Here are some of my favourites: 
     
Juicy Couture tracksuits making a comeback?

Juicy Couture tracksuits making a comeback?

Never did I ever think that we’d see juicy couture or velour tracksuits back in fashion so soon. I thought we had at least another 5 years before we’d see them back again. But like I’ve said multiple times before fashion trends of the past are constantly coming back and are forever evolving to fit the brand new market of consumers. 

Juicy Couture tracksuits were a favourite among celebrities and were everywhere back in the 2000s, everyone owned one! I’m not even going to lie to you, I loved juicy couture tracksuits back in the day, they were so incredibly comfortable and not to mention fashionable! I lived in my velour tracksuit, I literally could not live without it so much that my mother had to buy me another one, however this one was from primark, not quite the same but what did I know at the age of 5. 

It’s always nice to see trends of the past come back because I always love to see how people style them, we get to see a whole new perspective. Before we used to pair them with uggs but now we pair them with booties and white adidas. And last year juicy couture came back with a bang by doing a collaboration with one of the most influential brands of the moment vetements. Anyone who is anyone is wearing vetements right now!
