Denim/Jeans: The Ever Present Wear.

I have been asked a few times about the difference between denim and jeans. Firstly, i would like to clarify the difference between both. Denim refers to the fabric and Jeans refers to pants made out of denim. So actually, Denim is either the pants, skirts, jackets, shirts and shorts. Jeans mean is basically the denim pants.

We won't be going to go into the origin of how it was made, named or where it came from but you can be rest assured we'll tell you how to put it together.

Denim is timeless! It's easy to wear, practical and has been worn for years, it has been ever present in the fashion world. Ever since the days when it was worn only by the laborers, bikers and motor cycle gangs, it has been classified  as a classic 'street style' fashion wear and a 'must have' in your wardrobe. The jeans, regardless of age, sex or status is worn by anybody. It is a universal wear.

Denim is a beautiful wear anyday, it's stylish, fashionable and also rugged. It survives the harshest conditions which makes it the most durable wear in the world. 

How and when to wear?

Denim is a strictly 'street/casual wear'. Jeans can be combined in an outfit for a formal-casual occassion. For example wearing a  blazer suit with jeans. This is a simple, relaxed look that pairs the flattering shape of a suit jacket with the casual feel of jeans. With the right pieces, it’s hard to screw up a jeans/blazer combination. Wearing this particular outfit comes with rules, that is if you are coming out wanting to look sharper in your formal-casual look. Stay away from 

  • Severe faded or acid washed jeans.
  • Rips or torn jeans
  • Patched or flapy pocket jeans

These rules don't apply if you want to look more casual with the outfit. Other ways to wear denim is casually mixing it with T-shirt, striped or printed shirts, cardigans 

For the ladies, combining a blazer with a pair jean and heels is also a good formal-casual outfit. Ladies have a wider variety of choice when it comes to rocking the denim. For example, one lovely way to to make a denim statement is by wearing a printed T-shirt with denim shorts(hot pants) and a pair of wedges. Accessorize with a necklace and some bracelets. There's also a casual look of a denim jacket on top a flowing dress, nice sandals with beautiful accessories for a nice sunny day.

Spring! It's TOMS Season Again!!!

Hey! It's spring and we are approaching the summer. It's that time of the year again when we ditch the boots, the UGGs and put on the light shoes. There are lots of really nice light shoes and sandals to go with the light weather but there's no better shoe that represents these times of the year more than the TOMS.

TOMS are these cloth material type shoes that wrap snugly around the foot and are lined with a foam-rubber sole. Toms shoes are lightweight, comfortable to wear and come in several awesome colors like navy blue, red, corduroy olive green, chocolate browns, white and so on. They are not expensive, so feel free to own or destroy as many pairs as you’d like. They are unisex, worn by both male and female.

Toms are strictly casual and street style. They are worn with almost anything casual. T-shirts, shorts, jeans, Polo shirts, anything.

I know that not everyone will like Toms and some might say it's too fragile but no one will argue that it's quite stylish, cute and looks very good on any casual outfit.
