No matter what you wear on a daily basis at work or what the majority of your style consists of, there’s always that one outfit that places right in the middle of the streetwear category.Read More
The roots of streetwear go back to the 1980s and 90s, including hip hop, graffiti, skate and surf. It involved the production and promotion of casual clothes such as T-shirts, hoodies, sweatpants, sneakers, etc. These days one of the most popular pieces of clothing related to street culture is the men extended T shirt. It’s an ultimate addition to an urban, streetwear-inspired personal style.
We often compromise on comfort for style. Pain in our back and feet is an everyday issue because we wear uncomfortable shoes. Yes, high heels look professional and elegant, but are they really worth it? More and more companies are opting for causal business clothing, and there are many styles of flat shoes that are fit for professional environments.Read More
Ah, to be a teenager. The excitement, the turmoil, the drama, the need for individuality and expressing it in every way imaginable. It’s that time when you start caring about what you’re wearing, mixing and matching until everything is just perfect. The colourful kids fashion is no longer an option.
You have probably asked yourself many times what looks good on plus-size bodies? Being a plus size girl doesn’t mean that you should stick to only a few pieces of clothes. The fashion trends change, and now every brand and designer offers pieces suitably tailored to fit women of all shapes and sizes. Read More
I fell in love with minimalism because this lifestyle helped me learn a valuable lesson: quantity doesn’t necessarily equal quality. I realized that I don’t have to own a bunch of stuff to lead an abundant life or feel content and worthy. This doesn’t mean that minimalism despises material goods. It doesn’t. Minimalists simply believe that one should be mindful when spending their money on objects and choose only those that’ll serve them and add value to their existence.

Buying a pair of shoes isn’t as simple as just choosing the most eye-catching model and proceeding to checkout. Seeing how there is no one-size-fits-all when it comes to footwear, a fair amount of research is required before buying. This way, you will ensure that you will be satisfied with the pair you have bought and won’t regret spending money on a model that you will only wear once.
Ever since I told you my story about how I became a ballerina, somehow I became more interested in encouraging my little cousin to become one. She already had an itch for it, and it was like I saw myself in her. Every time she talked to me about ballet, my heart would start to pump like crazy. It was like being seven all over again.

Today, there’s a weird obsession of dressing little girls like adults. From celebrity children to hundreds of Instagram blogs with mums and daughters dressed in identical fashions. Maxi dresses presenting a tripping hazard, large belts that a toddler will struggle to unbuckle, sandals with thick heels that weigh their little feet down. I can’t help but feel creeped out.
While all these outfits may look cute on a photo, in reality, it’s often a different story. Kids are kids, and they want to run and jump and do kids stuff. And all of these clothes often prohibit this. Let your little girl enjoy the freedom of being a kid and wearing clothes that are comfortable, easy to move in and look fun. So, what kind of clothes should little girls wear? Here are some tips on what you should consider.
Let Her Express Her Identity
Even though we tend to think of them as an extension to ourselves, kids are also people with their own tastes and preferences. So, instead of projecting your own taste on your little one and turning her into a mini version of you, let her express her likes and dislikes in terms of clothing. She might prefer wearing certain colours as well as T-shirts with her favourite cartoon character or something else she likes. And doing so will make her happy and confident.
Even if she’s still a toddler, allowing your little girl to make decisions at this stage can feel empowering. With that being said, it’s best to bring your daughter shopping with you and let her pick out what she likes. Or if you don’t have time to go to the mall, you can find cute and comfy girls clothing online. If your kid is picky and can’t find what she likes, you can use a helpful tactic – pre-select a few items and let her pick out what she prefers.
Always Put Comfort First
When you’re shopping for clothes with your little princess, make sure to go for designs that allow movement. Dresses that are floor-length or jeans that are too tight shouldn’t even be considered regardless of how cute they look. These types of clothes are only going to restrict her movement and make her time at school or the playground less enjoyable. Instead, go for clothes in which your daughter can comfortably run, climb, bend over or twirl.
Also, avoid clothes with too many details, such as buttons, zipper and ties. These kinds of details can easily get stuck in something and come off, leaving a hole in their place. And steer clear of any items you girl can have trouble putting on or taking off. Dressing up should be fun, not frustrating!
Opt for Natural Materials Instead of Synthetics
Synthetic clothes come with high levels of chemical content which can irritate little kids’ sensitive skin and even cause allergic reactions. In addition, synthetic clothes aren’t breathable and can make kids feel stuffy and uncomfortable wearing them. Instead try to pick clothes made of natural materials, and buy organic whenever possible as they aren’t treated with any harsh chemicals. Usually, cotton is the best choice as it’s breathable, soft and lightweight. You can also opt for clothes made of wool and silk. In addition, check whether the fabric is prone to wrinkles. If it wrinkles too much, it’s best to avoid it.
Dressing In Layers is Always a Good Idea
The weather is unpredictable and you never know when it can become suddenly chilly on a warm summer day and the other way round. But dressing your little girl in layers can help overcome this problem. For instance, a combination of a T-shirt and a sweater is great for the summer in case it gets cooler or you end up staying outside after dark. In addition, when you’re going out with a little kid, bringing along some extra clothing pieces is always a good idea. For one, she can get wet or dirty and need a change. This usually happens with T-shirts, so bring along an extra in the case of an accident.
Resist the Urge of Buying too Much by Making a List
Whenever you go shopping for girls clothing, always prepare a list so that you don’t end up buying something that she really doesn’t need and isn’t likely to wear. The list can vary depending on the season, as well as any activities your little girl does. A great idea is to create a capsule wardrobe that can meet her needs in every situation. The capsule wardrobe should consist of girls clothing that are versatile and good quality. If you purchase a few quality pieces, they will stand up to regular wear and washing cycles better than the cheap, flimsy stuff. Besides saving you money, these items can also be passed down to siblings or friends.
When the weather gets chilly and I need to go run some errands or hang out in the open, sweaters are my favorite piece of clothing to wear. They keep me warm and cozy, there are styles and colours for most of my outfit combinations and I can easily take off my sweater whenever I feel hot. What’s more to ask from a piece of clothing? We all have different preferences regarding style and material depending on our specific needs and my personal favorite is definitely bamboo.Read More
If you’re looking for boots that are incredibly functional and successfully combine folk art and pop culture, nothing beats country boots. They’ve been worn by presidents, actors, cowboys, as well as actors who’ve become presidents. It’s actually quite sad to think that most men will go through life without actually trying a pair, so my advice is to not be that guy and give them a shot. Especially if you live in a rural area where your boots’ functionality is key. You don’t have to be a cowboy to appreciate a good pair of mens country boots, and although being a cowboy will expand the ways in which you can use country boots, you can still get them to match your western style outfit.
So how do you wear mens country boots without looking out of place in Australia? Well, most people would agree that a single western-themed piece of clothing is enough per outfit. That being said, if you’re wearing a pair of country boots, always try to wear them with a jacket and a sleek belt instead of a bolo tie and a cowboy shirt. That way, you’ll look like you’re making a fashion statement instead of attending a costume party.
Country boots are usually worn as social wear, not business wear, which is why you should look to wear them with relaxed trousers and jackets. Collared shirts go well with country boots. A T-shirt and blue jeans with country boots will probably make you fit right in a country music show, but if you’re going elsewhere, you should wear a plain white dress shirt, or a more patterned, casual one.
The jeans you pair with country boots should be close-fitted and preferably dark. You’ll want boot-cut style jeans, obviously, and you shouldn’t tuck them into the boots unless you want to look ridiculous and be judged by everyone you see. Alternatively, you can get dress trousers, as well as casual suits. Just make sure the trousers are wide enough so the boot shaft isn’t making a bulge.
A leather belt, or a belt with decorative buckles, will fit well with country boots. You don’t necessarily have to go with a rattlesnake skin belt or a huge silver buckle that features turquoise inlays, but a belt that’s slightly more decorative than your conventional dress one. And of course, you can get a hat if you really want to push the western style and if you want little kids to scream “COWBOY” as soon as they see you.
