Have you just said yes or are you a week away from the big day and worried about a sudden breakout? Either way, the following five pre-wedding skincare tips can help you look your best on the big day.

Hydrate

While drinking more water won’t magically give you perfect skin overnight, it can help you maintain clear skin in the days and even months leading up to your wedding. It’s also important to drink more if you’re worried about water retention. When you’re dehydrated, your body retains more water “just in case” which can give your face and body a slightly puffier appearance. 

Plain water alone isn’t your only option. You can add fruit, lemon, or opt for tea instead. For those that are looking to have their teeth as white as possible, white and oolong teas are a less-staining option. 

Don’t Ditch the Classics

If you’re a few months away from your big day or even a year, then you are free to change up your skincare routine however you like. However, if you’re just weeks away and considering a significant change from what you’ve been doing every day for the last year or more- don’t. 

Even if you’re switching to the latest miracle product, there will always be an adjustment period. Everyone’s skin reacts differently to different products. Also if you’ve got a sudden breakout, reaching for a new never-been-tried solution can often make things worse, not better.

Take a Moment to Destress

No matter how many luxury wedding dresses, you have yet to try on or how many centerpieces you have to put together yourself, scheduling a moment of calm amidst the chaos is key to keeping your skin clear. Meditate, book an appointment for some pampering, or take some time at the end of each day to lose yourself in a great book. 

Acne and other inflammation-based skin blemishes are an immune response. Stress causes your immune system to be on higher-than-average alert. The more often you can remain calm, the shorter your breakouts will be, and the less they will occur altogether. 

Exfoliate and Get a Massage Well Before the Big Day

Depending on how long it’s been since your last full body treatment, getting a massage and significant exfoliation can leave you feeling a bit drained the following day or days. Still, it’s one of the best ways to improve circulation, reduce cellulite, and lay the foundation for glowing skin on your wedding day. 

For best results, book your treatment a week before your wedding, give or take a few days. Before and after, make sure you drink plenty of water. If you’re planning on getting a tan, getting a massage and exfoliation treatment beforehand will make a spray tan appear more natural while a tanning bed may work a bit faster.

 

Sweat Every Single Day

Not only will this help you get in shape for your big day, but sweating is key to having the best skin possible. Working up even a light sweat can help your pores stay unclogged. Sweat also contains an anti-microbial protein named “Dermcidin” that helps reduce the bacteria living on your skin. The more often you sweat, the more this effect compounds.



Bowties can make you look iconic so consider adding them in your male accessories. They can make you stand out at an event regardless of their size and style. If you can’t decide between wearing a regular necktie or a bowtie to your next event, here are some good reasons to convince you why you should be wearing a bowtie. 

  1. Bowties are Trendy:

Bowties are back with a bang. They are booming with new styles and colors in the men’s tie collection. You will find a fashionista rocking his style in a bowtie at almost every fashion show or a red carpet event. Retailers of men accessories have seen more bowtie sales. You must also buy one if you haven’t got it yet. 

  1. Diversify Your Style:

You can look boring or rigid if you follow the same dressing style every time you get ready for an event. You can try to spice things up by juggling between bowties and neckties. Wearing bowties make you look formal and sophisticated while sticking to your formal dress code. Bowties can actually make your life a celebration by elevating your style. 

  1. Make You Look Confident and Elegant:

A bowtie indicates that you are a bold and confident man who knows how to pull off a style. Bowties are not as common as neckties so you can stand out at an event by wearing a bowtie. It makes you look elegant, smart, and gentle. Shop the best bowties at Ties.com

  1. They Don’t Get in Your Way:

A bowtie will not bother you like a necktie. With a bowtie, you don’t have to worry about the wind to blow your necktie, or you will no longer face the awkward situation when your necktie got caught in the car door. Bowties are especially convenient if you are constantly on your feet during the day. Professionals who have to bend over tables and people like architects, dentists, and chiropractors, prefer to use bowties because they don’t get in their way. 

  1. A Bowtie can Set You Apart:

Dressing righty has become essential for success in most professions. For instance, if you are dressing up to for an interview, a bowtie can set you apart from a sea of candidates wearing normal ties. Moreover, if you are up for a promotion, or a meeting, wearing a bowtie is a great way to impress your superiors. You’d be surprised by how many folks will remember you just because of the impression your bowtie has made. 

  1. Girls love Fashionable Guys:

Girls easily get impressed with the guys who care about their style and aesthetics. When they see you are wearing a bowtie, they know that you are a bold guy who likes to stand out and to be different and fashionable. 

  1. No Size Restrictions:

Bowties don’t usually vary much in size and shape. When you choose to wear a regular necktie, you waste your time while selecting the right size that goes well with your suit or body shape. There are no such rules when wearing a bowtie. Men of every age group can enjoy the grace and flexibility of bowties. You can choose between silk, cotton, or wooden bowties.

Despite the many fashion trends that come and go, the lure of vintage fashion never seems to go away. There are many reasons why they are popular as ever and one is because they never go out of style. Additionally, these seasoned articles are usually well-made that they outlast the most recent-made clothes and accessories.

Apart from their sturdiness, vintage fashion items contribute to the growing problem of fast fashion. Buying secondhand items help curb the malicious industry practices of fast fashion and help conserve the planet’s resources.

Some vintage items are brand and considered investments so understandably not everyone can afford them. However, you can find some of them in flea markets, thrift shops, specialty stores, and even online. If you are looking for a vintage piece that may be hard to time, your best bet would be to utilize the power of the internet. Online vintage clothes buying and selling is a considerable niche and there may be existing communities around your area.

If you are looking for ideas on what to look for, you can find some examples below.

What is Considered Vintage Clothing?

Vintage clothing means an old item that is at least 20 years old. These are articles that were produced in a bygone era and the style is usually so different from the modern ones produced now. Clothing, shoes, and accessories can come from mainstream but old fashion labels, haute couture or handmade.

Denim

Everyone knows that denim is almost indestructible. They were initially designed as a sturdy piece of fabric that can withstand wear for a long time. Vintage denim clothing from the 1940s to the 1980s are, particularly in demand. If you go to thrift shops or flea markets, be on the lookout for aged denim jackets, jeans, skirts, shirts, and even dresses.

Apart from being nice finds, denim doesn’t look like they’re going to go out of style anytime soon. There are so many uses for them and so versatile that they are easily styled. Additionally, the more used denim is, the more comfortable they get. In short, they just get better with age.

Peep Toe Shoes

This kind of shoes was born and popularized in the 1930s. There are still modern recreations of the original design that exist today, which is a testament that it has become a classic in women’s fashion. Peep toe shoes can be styled in a lot of ways, but it goes best with pencil skirts, circle skirts, and knee-length dresses.

Capri Overalls

Most people would be surprised when they find out that overalls have existed longer than they thought. In fact, women started wearing overalls during the first world war when they did laborious jobs in place of men. Overalls only continue to become popular among women since then and even today.

There are many kinds of overalls and each era have their own versions of it. Capri overalls are specifically from the 1950s and the reason why it comes back at the forefront of fashion is that it is both fashionable and functional.

Wool Plaid Skirts

There are many kinds of skirts, but the wool plaid kind was very popular in the 1940s. If there’s one article of clothing that has seen a consistent comeback in the decades, it’s wool plaid skirts. Styles change around to accommodate it and are supremely fashionable no matter the length.

If you ever find yourself looking for a trusty article of clothing you can dress up or down, especially in the fall, you can always rely on wool plaid skirts. Whether vintage or not, they’re plenty and you can find them almost everywhere. Here are some ideas on how you can wear it.

Thigh-High Boots

Any boots that are over the knees belong to this category. This kind of footwear has existed for centuries and was originally intended only for men in the 15th century, but these boots were called differently back then. In the modern day, thigh-high boots continue to enjoy popularity among women for style and utility since they are comfortable to wear in colder seasons.

Have you ever been in a situation where a friend gives you a present that you particularly don’t fancy? Foundation or lipstick that doesn’t match your tone, a fragrance or bracelet that you will never wear, or use? It is quite unfortunate that this happened to you, then why subject another person through the same event? Well, to eliminate all this, consider awarding them with a gift card instead.

Traditionally, it was customary to never attend a party or visit your friend’s home empty-handed. You were always expected to bring with you something small. But many are the times that you are perplexed on what to get them. Today though, you can still carry on this custom by taking with you a gift card. The perks of using gift cards are unfathomable, and below are the reasons why.

 

1. They Are Readily Available

Gift vouchers are available all around us. In food stores, supermarkets, clothing stores and most recently via the internet. The whole evolution of the internet has made it possible for busy folk to access and get a card or two quickly. For instance, you can easily purchase a Sephora gift card voucher for your sister’s birthday so that she can get that lipstick she has wanted for a while.

 

2. They Come In A Wide Range Variety

Another perk gift vouchers have to offer is the wide variety they come in. First of they are available for different items. Meaning you can get a coupon for makeup shopping, clothes as well as hotel accommodations and restaurants meals. Additionally, they also come in varying values. Such that you can get a card with 10 dollars on it and another for as much as 1000 dollars. You are then not limited to only one cash value but a broad selection.

 

3. They Are A Great Gift Option For All Ages

Gift cards, unlike physical gifts, are not age constricted. Well unless you are getting a gift card from a toy store. But even then, a mother may select a toy that is age-appropriate for their growing child. You may award a gift card from a clothes store to your baby cousin, big brother or grandmother. This makes them very appropriate. You may even purchase them in bulk, keep them, and use them whenever you need to. Although, you need to check their validity period to avoid wastage.

 

4. You Give Your Friend The Freedom To Get What They Want

Last but most importantly, your loved one has the freedom to get exactly what they need. It will completely eradicate the likelihood of wastage of funds into something that would never be used. They no longer have to fake a thank you knowing they might never wear that top you picked out for them. Now, they chose the top they want and one that they shall actually wear. They might just even want to purchase home decor things as opposed to the clothes you got for them.

It is a clear win-win solution. So the next time you are stuck making up your mind on what to get, consider getting a gift card. You won’t regret it.

Looking back on may wedding day, if there’s one thing I’d do differently it’s to focus more on us, and our moment than the event itself. And I have a wild guess a lot of married couples would do things differently on the day, if not decor, dress, or momentum wise, then budget wise 100%. I mean it’s our day, the day we supposedly dreamed about ever since the earth was round (I didn’t really, but most people do)… so it’s only natural to wanna splurge on your wedding day. But when it’s all over and guests are gone… trust me the memories of fun, of you two, of family and friends are more important than any decor, designer dress, band, or venue.

I’m not saying go cheap and have a wedding at your home (unless you want to of course), I’m just saying be more balanced and PLAN in advance. Saving for your wedding day on all levels is a thing and very doable.

Is there a way to having the cake and eating it too? Can you have your dream wedding without going in debt? As a forever optimist and lover of planing I’m saying a big bold YES on these. And also speaking from experience and own mistakes…

Is the mantra less is more still gold when it comes to weddings? I don’t know about you, but for me saving for your wedding day is very doable IF you know what you want AND what you don’t want.

Here’s my little guide to save you a few bucks and headaches.

1. VENUE

Choose a venue that is classic and needs the least of work or decor. Stick to white, neutrals, beige, even black or darker tones, that you can personalise with small DIY flowers or decor. You can have your wedding at your local restaurant, in your home garden, or a terrace… whatever feels right for you do it. Saving for your wedding day can be done and usually starts with the venue.

Paying close attention to details like: nice chairs, elegant tablecloths, nice silverware saves you a LOT of money. If the venue has these by default you’re in luck. A good floor, good lighting (that can go from bright to dim), nice walls, ceiling is also important. I’m a firm believer in white and light neutrals. They make everything look expensive, are good for photos as they bounce back the light, and can be ‘dressed’ up or down with decor.

2. DETAILS

Don’t splurge on expensive details. The details DO make all the difference but keep in mind less is more. You can DIY floral centrepieces, different one for each table for example, or just simple pretty bouquets in vases. Choose nice subtle details for your table, and go for glam, luxe, boho, chic, classic depending what your wedding is like. (trust me I know it’s hard. As a ‘more is not more’ kinda gal I totally get the struggle.) Keep it simple. Good taste. Make sure it looks nice in photos too. And use Pinterest for inspiration. Or contract somebody who’s just starting out, they’ll have lower rates and it’s a win win for both parties.

Personally I’m all about flowers and only flowers. Unless the rest is cheap but looks expensive or there’s a DIY option.

4. FOOD & DRINKS

The food and drink is tres importante. So if there’s one thing I would pay major attention to it’s the menu. Let it reflect you two, but also pay attention to your guests. A full stomach and drinks flowing keeps the fun alive and party going.

A candy bar is a must. Keep it cute and tasty.

Then when it comes to the menu know what you want: traditional, sea-food, finger foods, course, how many, etc. Never be cheap when it comes to food, and always do a tasting before.

Drinks wise… have a bar of pretty much everything. Or give fun options of cocktails with cute/fun/funky names that are entertaining for your guests.

And remember a nice presentation is KEY.

5. THE DRESS.

The most important thing about a wedding dress is for it to be comfortable and flattering. With that said… don’t go overboard with the spending, there’s sooo many options in small boutiques, even high street… the key is to know what you want and usually to stick to classic. Also my tip here is that before you commit to buying go and try out as many styles and cuts and designs as you can, to have a better idea of what you want and don’t want.

Personally I’m all for mermaid dresses and styles inspired by it. It flatters most body types, its classic, it’s super elegant and sexy, and looks amazing with both a long or short veil.

Wedding day outfit details are super important: nails, hair, makeup, shoes, jewellery.

Hair and makeup: I’m all for natural with a dash of elegant, glam, boho-chic depending on your style. DON’T do something you never wear… go as yourself.

Jewellery wise keep it simple. If you want statement earrings… wear just those. If you want cuffs do those. Elegance looks better over the years.

Shoes wise… comfort and sass. It’s a struggle I hear you, and can’t say it’s an easy and doable one but you can certainly try to find the perfect pair that has it all.

We all want a perfect wedding, perfectly organised, perfectly timed, everything going smooth… but remember it’s all about you two, so make it special and have it reflect you as a couple. The rest will follow. Figure out what matters most and less to you and start spending accordingly… some things just look better on paper, some things turn out to not be such a good idea… it’s always about balance and research for the best solution.

*

If there’s one thing I’m taking from my wedding is that keeping it classic for me was key. We had a good wedding, and only hired a floral company, music and photography… the rest was pretty flexible and not too over the board. With that said looking back I’d still maybe cut on some unnecessary details (read money) AND HAVE MORE FUN with my husband!

Each season, New York City comes alive with the presence of designer-clad icons trying to grab the cameras’ attention. CFDA’s NYFW 2019 schedule was released way in advance and the fall collections of 2019 will be just as exciting as any other. Among the latest and most notable designers to be showcased are Tommy Hilfiger, Ralph Lauren, and Oscar De La Renta. The Designer Debut by the Fashion Umbrella Foundation (on September 6 at 8 pm), which is the organization’s second-biggest annual fundraiser, will feature designers all over the world.

New York Fashion Week: When and Where?

This fall, NYFW will run from September 6 to September 13 at Spring Studios’ premises at 50 Varick Street and Gallery 1, 6 St. John’s Lane and of course Lincoln Center. These state-of-the-art spaces make perfect exposition grounds because they are very roomy, airy, and immersed in light. The studios are also equipped with multiple amenities and the latest AV technology to provide everyone involved in NYFW with the ultimate experience.

The week kicks off with MRHUA MRSHUA by NiuNiu Chou on September 6. On that day, guests will also see collections by Telfar and Tomo Koizumi. 

Christian Siriano, former winner of Project Runway, makes a notable return this fall. He celebrates a decade at his label and will present his collection at 4 pm on September 7. Chromat, who won the Council of Fashion Designers of America’s (CFDA) award two years ago, will also be featured on that day. Interestingly, Chromat shares the 9 pm slot with Ralph Lauren himself.

Touches of Nostalgia

Recently, Ralph Lauren reminisced about his first collection in New York back in the fall of 1972. He may be an international fashion icon now, but in no way was that the case then! He tells us that they set up chairs in his office and only about 10 editors attended the “event”. There were just 10 models, who walked in one at a time, and Ralph Lauren talked about the designs. It’s a time he looks back at with a great deal of nostalgia.

Collections featured on September 8 will include Tory Burch, Lou Dallas, Tanya Taylor, Jonathan Cohen, Tibi, Mansur Gavriel, Victor Glemaud, Tommy Hilfiger, and more.  

On the 9th, you can see The Row, Carolina Herrera, Jonathan Simkhai, Alice & Olivia, Lela Rose, Anna Sui, Tom Ford, and Phillip Lim among others.  

The September 10th event starts with BAILUYU by Fu Wenjie, followed by Alejandra Alonso Rojas, Theory, Sally Lapointe, and Gabriela Hearst. Afternoon highlights include Christian Cowan, Claudia Li, and Studio 189. We’ll be dazzled by Naeem Khan and Oscar De La Renta’s latest collections in the evening. 

Highlights on September 11 include Michael Kors and Dennis Basso in the morning, Brock Collection, Ryan Roche, and Mischka in the afternoon, and Marc Jacobs in the evening.

The event enters its last day with the collections of Helen Yarmak and Ontavia Roulette and finishes off with FIFI FW and Jeanette Limas on September 13.

What to Wear at NYFW

Now we come to the essence of things. A guest of NYFW will show respect by putting just as much effort into their outfit as the featured designers did into their pieces. You want to turn heads this fall, don’t you? Seeing as you were fortunate enough to get an invite to the most famous fashion show in the world (and even if you didn’t)… the street style of NYFW is one to watch.

Below, we present some ideas we’ve found most inspiring. At first, these styles might seem incongruous – what does plaid have in common with python print, you might wonder – but bear with us. The latest trends include the most unexpected of combinations.

Blast from the Past

Retro styles have been inspiring designers at NYFW for years. The FashionTag wrote about “Time Traveling to the 40s” and the “80s Comeback” at NYFW in the spring of 2017. Those 40s-inspired collections featured pencil skirts, hourglass designs, high waists, and other ultra-feminine elements. Sequins, giant shoulder pads, oversized earrings, and cinched waists invoked the 80s. Fall 2019 Fashion Week takes a bow to history with the Fendi Baguette, a style going back to the early 2000s.

Suits – from Retro Futuristic to Slouchy in Just a Year 

On occasion of Fall 2018 NYFW, The FashionTag reported a unique trend – boxy retro suits in de-saturated shades. These have been replaced by slouchy suits a year later. Slouchy suits are a must for a guest who compromises neither on style nor on comfort. Over the past several seasons, suits have become a staple in street styles as well. In 2019, we’re seeing slouchy two-piece suits in a variety of styles, from flashy all-over prints to candy-colored versions. The suit’s Fall 2019 silhouette is super-slouchy.  

On a related note, New York Dress introduced jumpsuits as a great alternative to wear to an official event in lieu of a formal dress.

Preppy Plaid

Prep is undergoing a revival in athleisure, street wear, and more. One option of easing into this interesting and versatile trend is by wearing plaid in different ways: tailored pants, coats, or mixed-and-matched into a full outfit. Coats were pretty much mandatory at NYFW earlier this year, and this tendency isn’t going anywhere. If you aren’t a plaid fan – some people just can’t bear its elitist feel – there is plenty of statement outerwear you can choose from, like teddy jackets, colorful faux fur, or belted coats.

Hair Accessories

Barrettes, scrunches, and claw clips are coming back in a huge way, which is great news for guests of NYFW. It means you can get as creative as you want and do your own hair because all of these accessories are easy to use and make a major impact.

One last note on accessories – no outfit will be complete without a giant blanket scarf this fall. Fendi and Acne Studios are the most popular options. The fact they keep you warm is an added bonus.

Python and Zebra Prints

Maybe it would be too much to combine them, but do go for at least one this fall. Python has replaced leopard print as a trend, while zebra stripes will adorn quite a few outfits in ways beyond traditional black and white.

See and Be Seen  

New York Fashion Week is where the greatest of the Greats in the fashion world converge. It has always been THE event to see and to be seen, so have fun dressing the part!

Jewellery shopping is fun. It is a great way to accessorise, give gifts to friends, in fact jewellery is also one thing wedding planners and those about to wed must take a look at. Here are a few tips you need to consider when shopping for jewellery:

1. Ensure your jeweler is well educated

Consider a jeweler who has both formal and gemological education, a jewelry manufacturing training in addition to their practical experience. Remember jewelry will cost you a lot and it will break your heart to find out you bought something fake. There are many sites on the internet where you can find out if the jeweler in your area are certified. Whether you are buying silver bracelet for women or you are shopping around for a nice necklace for an event, buying from a certified vendor guarantees you get quality product and value for your money.

2. Look for the manufacture’s marker

This is like your book being signed by the author, like that watermark on the note in the money we use. It spells authenticity. It states that the product was made by that manufacturer and is therefore as original as can be. Jewelry manufacturers have unique way of signing their brands to make them original. For instance a gold ring has a number perfectly engraved on the inside to make it unique and high quality.

Jewelry shopping is fun. It is a great way to accessorize, give gifts to friends, in fact jewelry are also one thing wedding planners and those about to wed must take a keen look at. Today, there are so many fake jewelry around. They look golden and pretty but are fake, after a few encounters with water they even start rusting. For most of us, this is the greatest fear of all, wearing a rusted piece of jewelry that you possibly spent a fortune on. Here are a few tips you need to consider when you go jewellery shopping so you are not lied to or so you don’t end up frustrated.

3. Check the gems and the metal

The gems on any piece of jewelry bought need to be very secure and not shaky. If not secure, the gems will definitely fall off in the near future. Also, remember to check for any damaged stones. If possible, look through the jeweller’s loupe for chips and abraded facets.

You are buying this metal for a very high price. It is only logic that you look for scratches. These are perhaps the most obvious sign of damage in jewelry. All metal finishes, matte, bright and texture show where the scratches are and how deep they are.

4. Check the warranty and return policy

There are some damages you may not notice while at the store so you need to read the warranty and the return policy carefully. Look at the ‘what ifs’ of buying and if there are things you do not understand always ask. Nothing is worse than buying an item, going home and finding out that it is damaged, going to the store and finding out it cannot be accepted. Remember jewelries are often overpriced and the last thing you want is to spend more in buying something that you cannot use neither return to the store.

There are so many reasons why we love denim jeans. For some of us, it’s the freedom to wear boy-like options and still appear like the sexiest woman alive. For others, it’s the environmental impact that denim jeans have. From the production of the raw material to the creation of the final fabric, denim jeans are all about saving Mother Nature.

While there are so many leading denim jeans brands on the market today, Boyish is the most sustainable. This is actually their selling point but you also can’t ignore their sense of fashion. Their boy-like denim jeans are the trendiest jeans around. They come with a vintage style that’s highlighted by a modern vibe.

From their mini skirt jeans to their standard denim jeans, fashion and sustainability are written all over. But if we can stick to the second part, there are several reasons to believe that Boyish Jeans are the most sustainable denim jeans around. Moreover, you can find Boyish jeans promo codes on CouponCause.com that can get you some discount.

Here are the top ones:

  1. Sustainable Fabric

You probably are aware that cotton is one of the most sustainable materials. Luckily for Boyish Jeans, the material is the primary ingredient. There are a couple of reasons why they use cotton as their primary ingredient. One, it is energy-efficient. In fact, cotton is more energy-efficient than synthetic fabric. Simply put, it doesn’t take so much energy to produce Jeans from cotton.

Two, most of the cotton comes from Brazil with some from Turkey. The good thing about these two countries is that their cotton is certified to be sustainable by societies like OCS and BCI. In addition to cotton, their second most used material, deadstock, is also sustainable. Deadstock is highly considered because it doesn’t result in carbon emission during the manufacturing process.

  1. Sustainable Accessories

The buttons of Boyish Jeans are made from sustainable materials. Boyish has gone a step further to use recyclable plastic for the buttons. The same can also be said about the clothes label. It’s very uncommon to find a brand that goes out of its way to make clothes accessories that are sustainable. A majority of brands only concentrate on the fabric and nothing else.

  1. Water-Efficiency 

The fabrics used to make Boyish Jeans generally do not require so much water during the production stage. Compared to most denim jeans brands, Boyish Jeans only use a third of the water that the brands use. This is quite remarkable considering how much water they are able to save. During the laundry process, a small volume of water is used as the numbers of dips are reduced. This means that less dye is washed off from the fabric.

  1. Supplier Auditing and Partnerships

Boyish is generally open to working with suppliers who are willing to promote their dream of sustainability through clothing manufacturing. To ensure that their suppliers meet their standards of production and are socially and environmentally responsible, Boyish hires Intertek to audit the suppliers. So, Intertek always ensures that every supplier they are instructed to audit is supplying materials that are both safe and non-toxic.

Recently, Boyish partnered with 1% For the Planet, an eco-conscious non-profit. They are able to contribute 1% of their annual profit to the organization to assist in the fight for environmental conservation. So many organizations that are advocates for environmental conservation support the organization and so it makes sense for Boyish to join the community.

  1. Zero Water Pollution

During the dye dipping phase of making Boyish Jeans, the fact that there are few dips implies that very minimal dye is washed down. So, there’s little to zero dye release to the environment. Also, the amount of caustic soda together with sulfates is roughly 80% less if compared to what most clothes brands use. This really shows that they are very conservative when it comes to the environment. They always ensure that water is efficiently used without risking pollution.

  1. Reduce! Reuse! Recycle!

Boyish does not just prioritize on reducing water wastage and reusing of the same. They also prioritize reducing fabric wastage and encouraging fabric recycling. Starting with cotton, it doesn’t require any water to recycle. So, they are able to recycle it while still saving on water usage.

The other material that they cut on wastage while encouraging reuse is deadstock. Actually, 20% of boyish Jeans are made from recycled deadstock fabric. What makes Boyish so good at recycling fabrics is that the recycled material looks like the original virgin material. At the end of the day, no one can tell the difference between what’s recycled and what’s not.

Wrapping up 

Boyish Jeans are specifically designed for the young woman and girl who’s a fan of boy-like jeans. The jeans are all about sustainability and caring for our planet. Everything about the clothes reminds you of how important it is to look after our environment.

I haven’t enjoyed fashion like this (in front of my laptop while reporting on some trend) in what feels like a gazillion years. And to be able to this AND report on white tops trend as the IT summer look or trend of the moment is lemme just say… pure joy. I’ver said this in the past (way in the past) that I had a feeling fashion was slowly becoming minimal (#thisbasicbitch), it’s going back in time to a time of some sort of French chic mixed with a dolce far ninete kinda vibe. And depending on the styler it’s got a touch of glam, or luxe, or masculinity, or grunge… it can be whatever.

Okay, to say white tops trend is like the best thing about this summer is a little exaggerated. But I’m just happy my summer go-to-piece of all time aka there white top is finally getting some real TLC.

From basic pieces, to the summer prairie look, the boho romantic, the office white shirt, the sleek style, or the over the top fashion week white blouses – EVERYTHING that is white and a top is IN. I guess it looks great on the gram or something?! And with a tan. #summerperks

To cut long story short here’s the 4 white tops to wear everywhere this summer.

1.The BASIC white tops trend.

YAS! My fave of them all is this little basic piece, just because it looks SO GOOD and blends in so well with 2019 basic trends that I love it. You can wear it with jeans, a skirt, a pair of linen pants, beige outfits, heels, sneakers, slides, kitten heels… And it looks amazing with either minimal jewellery or layered pretty chunky necklaces or big earrings.

And you can layer it under a gorgeous suit.

2. The white T-SHIRT.

It’s a classic and a no brainer and can go from a pyjama to an office look, or a party outfit. It’s one of the easiest pieces to dress up or down, and look amazing in any combination. The key is to wear soft quality tees and for an extra effect to pair them with bold lips.

3. The PRAIRIE white tops trend.

From naked shoulders to ruffles, anything that is either prairie fashion, or romantic bohemian, or Edwardian inspired, or Spanish flamenco ruffles is FAB for this season. It’s all about being flirty, feminine, cute, playful, airy, happy… Wear these tops with something simple like a skirt, or a pair of classic denims and some low heel sandal, and spice it up with a messy do and hoops. OR go more classic and take it to work, and wear these tops in a simple way.

4. The SOPHISTICATED white tops trend.

Ladies if you love statement pieces but also wanna look professional, smart, and minimal this is your look. From the craziest cuts and styles to the more simple ones, the white sophisticated top is the easiest to style. Just keep it simple. And it can be an amazing piece for a summer cocktail party.

5. The SEXY tiny top.

It’s basically like a bra, except it’s not a bra per se. It is perfect for summer as it’s super tiny, and a go-to piece for more sophisticated events when you can throw on a blazer over it. Oh and of course it looks amazing with any hight waisted bottoms.

Which one’s your fave? Personally I live in and love basic pieces these days.
