Look of the Week – All about the Statement Bag

Today’s ‘Look of the Week’ comes from one of our very own. TFF Member Caro has got the ongoing trends covered like a pro – that she is. She mastered to combine trends like flared denim pants, sparkly ankle boots AND to stay tone in tone. Also, she styled the outfit all around the look’s key piece: her oversized statement bag.

The various shades of blue in combination with the sparkly touch and the patterned bag are very thought through. Yet it still appears simple. That’s the trick! All eyes may be on the bag’s furry camouflage but the essential details of the look are still standing out nicely. Therefore, an outfit styled with carefulness and attention – a definite WIN!

“Let your key piece be the center of attention”

An Update on where Fashion is headed for Spring/Summer 2017
It’s time we talk about Men’s Fashion as seriously as we do about Women’s. This Spring/Summer 2017 is focussing big time on contrasts and mix-and-match. Luxury giants are setting the tone and producing polished lessons in fashion and style.

We’ve seen that Nineties fashion is having it’s major comeback for some time now – especially in women’s wear – but is also pushing through the catwalks and collections of Men’s Fashion Week. Stylish sportswear and corporations between couture and streetwear labels are leaving their mark and we LOVE it. The MTV generation has got to be very thankful that fashion likes to revisit past decades and revive former trends. Get used to oversized hoodies and wide fit stone blue denim on your man.

Time to Speak up – through FASHION

Statement shirts have been all up in our faces lately but manly in Women’s Fashion. Now the trend is taking over the Men’s world by storm. A trend that is more important than ever considering the current situation society is stuck in. Mixed messages printed on shirts were ruling the catwalks of Fashion Week all over the globe. It’s time to speak up; something that designers and brands took very serious this season. In a time where the crisis is a brutal reality the printed messages turned quickly into political statements. WE LOVE!

Speaking off reviving past trends: a certain pattern is fighting its way back up to the top after being believed dead for some time now. Urban fashionistas can be quite relieved that their beloved camouflage is now back to toughen up their look. We’ve spotted some stylish pieced at various Fashion Shows from labels like Dries van Noten (picture on the right) or Givenchy.

Taking Fashion Risks is a Good Thing!

Trends seem to get more daring and over the top from season to season. After all, you do get the feeling that people are getting more daring and experimental to try out new trends. Getting out of the comfort zone is the new fashion mantra! You don’t need to be in love with every single one of those trends above but at least some will separate you from the mass – just sayin.

The Style of: Ruth Negga

The Style of: Ruth Negga

In this ‘The Style Of‘ edition it is all about Ruth Negga. The Irish-Ethiopian beauty whose name is on everyone’s lips has been creating a buzz in the fashion world ever since award season started! Born in Ethiopia, she now lives in London and has been acting since 2003. Last year, she appeared in the beautiful movie “Loving” and was nominated for practically all the year’s major awards including the Oscars. There she made a grand entrance on the red carpet wearing another one of the stunning couture dresses she’s been consistently donning while attending the many events following her nominations.

It’s been an amazing sartorial ride for Negga and I loved watching her rock the most fabulous gowns like the style maven she is! What’s extremely refreshing is that she looks like nobody else and has a very idiosyncratic approach to fashion. Tons of femininity, whimsicality and fun is the way one could describe it. When she appears on the red carpet, she looks like a fab Anais Nin heroine who could be just stepping out of the 1920’s to remind us of the time where a girl wasn’t afraid of bringing both masculine and feminine traits together by sporting a short haircut, a way to express her creative independence, while looking ultra feminine at the same time.

Of course, with such a sense of glamour, it’s no wonder that renowned designers have been courting her to wear their most exquisite creations. They recognize the impeccable style sense Miss Negga never fails to display on the red carpet.

Here is a review of 10 of Ruth’s major fashion moments … so far.

Negga is one of the few who can inject vintage into modern day elegance with tons of girlishness. Pairing this ultra feminine printed dress with playful heels, what more proof do you need?

Old Hollywood glamour? Not a problem for this chic chameleon who can effortlessly elevate an all black ensemble with a fun faux fur stole and – what else – pink heels!

Good luck tonight! 🏆 🏆 Ruth Negga is nominated for the Best Actress Oscar for her role as Mildred Loving in "Loving". Ruth herself has mixed roots. She was born in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia, to an Irish mother and Ethiopian father. She grew up in Ireland and London. She described how some have responded to her mixed heritage in the film industry. “I’ve gone into auditions and I think they have an assumption about me when they see my photo, and then I open my mouth and they say, ‘Where exactly are you from? And you were born in Ethiopia? But you’re Irish, but you also kind of sound English. That’s really strange,’” she told Indiewire in 2012. “They want to put you in a box in L.A., that’s how they tend to do it here, so if you don’t fit in that box, it makes it more difficult.” (Source: US Weekly). #ruthnegga #lovingfilm #theoscars #academyawards #ethiopia #ireland #london ##mixedinthesix #mixedpeople #actress #star #hollywood #lovingday #thelovings #history #truestory #mixedgirl

Yes, no doubt, this woman can make any top blossom with tons of allure!

When the temperature is rising on the red carpet, it’s probably because of Negga’s undeniable femme fatale’s appeal. Yep, only a strong woman can rock a fringe gown with so much poise and sexiness!

Negga pulls off this eye-catching Metropolis heroine look effortlessly, donning an ultra glam metallic dress for a fashion moment that will be remembered, no doubt, as one of her best ones!

This little number is a solid gold hit and nothing Ruth can’t handle with the style and elegance she is known for.

She goes for major sex appeal in a gorgeous embroidered fall 2017 dress. Way to prepare us for all the future fashion moments she is going to gift us with!

And that’s the style of Ruth Negga everyone! Enjoy your Sunday!

Look of the Week – Stripes and vinyl are in it to win it

Look of the Week – Stripes and vinyl are in it to win it

Finally someone who is able to combine current trends and not get lost in standards. This ‘Look of the Week’ is well deserved by Fashion blogger and trend setter Lucy Williams. She combined a sporty but cool striped trench with some vinyl trousers and a camel sweater. Not something I would think could work on the rack but looks pretty stylish on her. Keep it simple with your accessories and the look is both classy and chic but also fun and fashionable. Stripes and vinyl: definitely something worth trying!

Our fashionable camouflage staples are more than happy to steal the show and let us make an impact wherever we are going. Indeed, nowadays, camo can be spotted on so many garments and accessories. Hence the countless opportunities to don them, whether at work as an elegant statement bag, off-duty as a parka, or even at night as a fab garment. Yes, the cool pattern can effortlessly do it all: from casual to glam and it belongs in our wardrobe as well as in our man’s closet.

A Look at the Latest Very Fashionable Camo Trends

The camouflage dress can be quite a feminine addition to our essentials. A masculine vibe in a very feminine staple will always give an edge to an otherwise rather plain look.

A pair of camo jeans might become our new favorite substitute denim? Sign us in! What better way is there to do his and hers!

There’s something intrinsically cool about a light cropped camo jacket, a pair of khakis and a simple white tee!

A camo tote is all we need to get ready for combat again on Monday mornings after a peaceful weekend!

Don’t mess with a girl who wears a long camo skirt unless you’re brave! Pairing it with faux fur is an interesting new take on this pattern’s game.

We need this embroidered silk camo duster coat for next summer! Immediately!

Guys having a fashion moment, mixing and matching camo with other prints, is their way to say: “I rule”. And they sure do, especially when adding a dapper olive beret to the ensemble.

The summer might get really hot but it’s got nothing on this chic cotton camo jacket!

Beach bum. ✨

Wanna up your parka game? This coat will allow you to take over the streets … instant coolness!

Sometimes playing peekaboo with the pattern such as wearing a tonal parka with a camo lining is the best way to make a powerful statement!

This just in: the camouflage pantsuit has arrived and it’s amazingly chic. With or without a matching handbag, it is sure to turn our idea of an eye-catching evening outfit upside down!

And of course, guys don’t want to be left behind. A camo tuxedo jacket is severely awesome and a thrill for the man who likes to indulge in the pleasure of eccentricity!

The camo pattern never looked that good! A quilted puffer jacket worn with leather pants and high heels make this an absolute in-it-to-win-it look and will probably become one of our favorite uniforms to go to work!
