Streetwear as a whole is the most prolific
part of the fashion business. With billions of dollars being spent in both
production and advertisement, brands like OFF-White, Gucci and Supreme have
literally reshaped the market of a topic which grows (still) on a daily basis.
Let’s try and picture what happened, in general, in the last couple of years
within the world of streetwear.
Supreme And “The Limited Edition”
Supreme is the brand which started the entire
“limited edition” and “drops” paradigm within streetwear.
The logic behind every release is relatively simple: collections are divided in
“drops”, which are released once every year and, after that, won’t be
available for purchase anymore. With this, Supreme increased their brand awareness
by creating demand so high, that it escalated in a parallel market worth over
$3 billion in 2018. Incredible, for a brand which was born as mere skatewear
clothing such as mens
Gucci has gone from being a high tailoring,
ultra high class, polite and “classic” brand to flashy, extravagant
designs led by creative director’s mastermind Alessandro Michele. Gucci, since
2017, was able to increase his incomes by over 35% with just their
Currently, retro sportswear is one of the biggest fashion trends for millennials everywhere. Athleisure is one of the most beloved styles as it means that people are not only looking great, but they’re also super comfy too!
It’s a well known fact that sportswear is really comfortable, but it’s not only the most stylish. It’s never going to work if you style a sports bra with a pair of jeans, however opting for the retro look gives you the best of both worlds. So, what does it take to achieve the most sought after trend of 2019?
Know your brands
One of the biggest aspects of urban streetwear style is having a big logo. Brands have made a comeback in a real way this year and the bigger the logo, the better. Not only that but there are a few choice brands that will help you to achieve the look you really want.
Nike, Ellesse, Fila and Adidas are some of the big named brands that have really perfected the retro look.These brands take inspiration from the 80s and 90s to create a really great look.

Once that wedding invitation from your friends arrives, you have a lot of choices to make. Don’t let worries about gift-giving spoil your anticipation for the big day! You can easily master the etiquette of wedding gifts by sticking to these sevens simple rules:
1) Give Something That Has Meaning
You can’t “win” wedding gifting by trying to out-spend all the other guests. In a lot of cases, the gifts the bride and groom will treasure most are the thoughtful ones. Take some time to think through what you know about the happy couple. What do you know about their interests, tastes and hobbies? Can you strike on a gift that suits their shared personalities?
Bear in mind that you don’t necessarily have to present the couple with something tangible. Making your gift an experience (e.g. concert tickets or a booking at a romantic seaside resort) can be a winning strategy. Surveys show that “experience” gifts are often better received than material ones because they present the new couple with an opportunity to make fond memories together.
2) Give Something From the Gift List
Couples that put together extensive gift lists do their friends a great favour and take …
When a person decides that they are going to wear shapewear, the last thing they want to deal with is constantly fixing their clothes throughout the night.

The truth is …

Glitter has been a growing trend over the last few months, with this new craze taking over the festival scenes as the new must-have makeup look for 2018. Glitter is being used in inventive ways like never before, on both the face and in creative hairstyles. It’s a fun trend that makes your face shimmer and brightens up your style, what’s not to love? Well, although it is a popular trend, there are actually precautions you should take before applying glitter to your face to ensure it doesn’t damage your eyes or skin.
Cosmetic or Craft?
First things first, you should never consider applying craft glitter to your face. It’s often argued that craft glitter is essentially a cosmetic glitter dupe; being the same but cheaper. However, this is simply not the case. There are distinctive differences between the two that will change the way you view them.
For example, craft glitter, as it was originally intended, is used for arts and crafts. Therefore, in some cases it can contain tiny fractions of metal. Putting anything like that near your eye sends shivers down the spine. In the worst cases, if it gets into your eye it could scratch the …
