ASOS:HOW ASOSERS DO DENIM

Denim, the gift that keeps on giving. Just when we thought it peaked in trends, we realise there’s so much more to explore. And if there’s one thing we like to do at ASOS, it’s exploring fashiony things. So, this is how the team’s been rocking their denim lately.
Hello spring? Is that you? Cos we’re very ready for pastels, especially in denim. Our Buyers Administrator Jess proves that jumpsuits are basically the cheat sheet for getting that extra five mins in bed: one item of clothing and you’re done. Pair it with classic Nike AF1s for an easy-peasy, running-around-the-office look.
Topstitching has been a long-time favourite amongst denim enthusiasts, and, fear not, it’s not going anywhere anytime soon. Project Manager Kat adds a bit of French flair by pairing these flares (pun very much intended) with a striped long-sleeved top and Converse sneakers. Ultimate office ‘fit? We think so.
ICYMI, utility + denim = a perfect match. Utility trousers like these are cool AF, practical and comfy – the all-powerful trifecta. Just ask Buyers Administrator Intern Isobel who knows what’s up, styling them with a half-zip and white trainers (ankles on show cause it’s finally above 10 degrees).
How to win at denim? Rock two of the season’s biggest trends: double denim and animal print. The belted jacket is 2019’s answer to the denim trucker, just wear it fully closed like Junior Project Manager Lottie for a tailored vibe. Or, you know, layer it cos, boy, do we love layering.

ASOS:3 WAYS TO WEAR DENIM FOR 2019

Whatever the weather or occasion, you can always depend on denim. From jeans to jackets, the fabric is on constant rotation in our wardrobes. So, to keep the classic piece fresh this season, we’re looking to vintage cuts, fresh shades and slick add-ons. Keep scrollin’ for our top tips on how to wear it now.
To start, why not swap out your trusty blue jeans for a cream or white pair? A wide-leg, cropped style will be your go-tos this season, trust. They’ll match with basically anything, but an earthy denim jacket is a good option – brown is the shade of the season, after all. To mix up the neutral vibe, a pinch of print is always a win, while resin details are the cherry on top.
Fit: boyfriend. Colour: lilac. Styling: androgynous. This look mixes three of our favourite things. It also begs the question: why wait for spring to wear pastels? Fresh shades like these will bring some (much-needed) fun to your ‘fit now. And banana-shade Chuck Taylors to finish? Sign us up.
Flared jeans are back, and you can thank the return of the 70s trend. Combine them with a simple ribbed knit to channel icons of the era like Farrah Fawcett and Jane Birkin. To update it for now, reach for this season’s version of the bum bag and cute embellished hair clips. You can file this one under work-to-weekend wins.

H&M:EYTYS X H&M – SWEDISH BFFS

When H&M teams up with fellow Swedish cult brand Eytys, it’s all about chunky shoes and unisex silhouettes. Join us at the Eytys head office to get a sneak peek of the collection.
It all began with a shoe. Or rather the lack of it. Max Schiller and Jonathan Hirschfeld – childhood friends and founders of Swedish brand Eytys – were on vacation in Japan together and found themselves dreaming of the same shoe: a chunky unisex sneaker inspired by the ones the American navy wore during World War II.

Three weeks later, they had quit their jobs and started the process of producing what would become ”Mother,” the brand’s most famous shoe. The rest is Swedish fashion history.

When Eytys and H&M team up for a capsule collection this January, a reinterpretation of the ”Mother” shoe is a natural part of it. Meeting Max and Jonathan for a sneak peek of the collab in the Eytys head office in central Stockholm, it’s obvious that shoes are in focus, but the line also includes jackets, t-shirts, sweaters, pants and jeans in heavy cotton twill, faux patent leather, nylon and raw denim.
“In this collab we wanted to give the shoes new life. To put them in a context of a concentrated collection with other products. And all those products are designed the same way we always design: by taking traditional workwear garments and giving them new proportions, creating more extreme versions of the original idea,” says Max Schiller.

“And of course there’s a version of ‘Mother’ in this capsule collection. It’s an iconic model for us, and it would have been weird not to include a rendition of it. It has been so much fun to explore new ways to modify the classic, with new textures and new materials.”
Unisex design is in our DNA, we do it without thinking
The two founders were born in the 80s and grew up in the 90s as part of Generation Y – hence the brand name.
“The 90s influence has never been an intention, but we grew up in that decade. That was when our identities were formed, when clothing and sneakers became important. It’s easy to become nostalgic,” says Max.
The capsule collection features several shoe models as well as garments, all with the significant Eytys look. For this brand, it’s all in the proportions.
“I like it when function unites with interesting silhouettes. I’m a fan of focusing on classic products and then creating something warped in the design. Eytys is all about playing with proportions and materials. When we wanted to do a heavy cotton jersey sweater for this collection, we sourced the driest, heaviest cotton jersey I could find. If a pair of pants are baggy, they’re really really baggy. That’s a very fun way to work as a designer,” says Max.
The Eytys x H&M collection is – as all Eytys products – unisex. Because why should a sneaker not be?

“Unisex design is in our DNA, we do it without thinking. And the reaction is almost always positive. To us, the difference between the male body and the female body has never been an issue. Our clothes have a completely different silhouette anyway,” says Max.

IN WHAT WAY IS EYTYS AND H&M A FRIENDLY MATCH?
“Eytys has typically not been for everyone and we have never aimed to be a crowd pleaser, but it feels great to work together with H&M to let more people discover our brand and what we stand for.”

MISSDUIDED:how to dress to meet your boyfriend’s parents for the very first time…

So your eyes met over the bar or you’ve had a swipe right moment and now you’ve found yourself in a relationship. You no longer need to use the word ‘f*ck’ in front of ‘boy’… You go girl. But now comes the real test… He wants you to meet the parents. Of course, the most testing part of all of this isn’t will his parents love you (everyone loves you babe), but what the sh*tballs are you going to wear!?! Don’t worry, we’ve got you covered for every eventuality.

Brunch with the parents
Meeting the parents over brunch means no Dutch courage, unfortunately. Unless his mum loves a Mimosa, that is, in which case marry him. Go for this season’s hottest print: Animal. Team with <span class=”woR”>denim</span><span class=”woD”>Denim[1] is a sturdy cotton warp-faced[2] twill textile in which the weft passes under two or more warp threads. This twill weaving produces the familiar diagonal ribbing of the denim that distinguishes it from cotton duck (a linen canvas).</span> and graphic tees or chunky knits for understated cool. This is a look that you will wear again and again this season.
Get the look:

Late lunch
So you’re meeting the parents over a late lunch. That’s good, alcohol will probably be involved which is always an icebreaker. Show off your style credentials with some new season layering. Silky cami <span class=”woR”>dress</span><span class=”woD”>A dress (also known as a frock or a gown) is a garment consisting of a <span class=”woR”>skirt</span><span class=”woD”>A skirt is a tube- or cone-shaped garment that hangs from the waist or hips and covers all or part of the legs. The hemline of skirts can vary from micro to floor-length and can vary according to cultural conceptions of modesty and aesthetics as well as the wearer’s personal taste, which can be influenced by such factors as fashion and social context. Most skirts are self-standing garments, but some skirt-looking panels may be part of another garment such as leggings, shorts, and swimsuits.</span>
with an attached bodice (or a matching bodice giving the effect of a one-piece garment).</span>

teamed with chunky knits are always a win. Or, opt for the cool girl’s way to wear a dress and layer under an oversized coat. Your boyf will think you look hot, his parents will think you look demure – Win-win.
Get the look:

The family party
OK, so you are not messing about, babe, and will be meeting the entire family in one hit. Hats off to you. Maybe ditch the mini dress and opt for a statement co-ord, this season’s ‘IT’ girl way to turn heads. And if you find yourself having to dance with Uncle Kn*bhead, you’ll be able to do your thang on the dance floor without worrying about flashing. 20,000 gold girlfriend stars for you and major parent points.
Get the look:

Evening dinner and drinks
Embrace the hottest fabric of the season: Satin. Look respectable and cool AF in some sleek satin to wow the parents. Team faux leather with satin for new season style points. Go for shorts and heels for the perfect look to meet the parents over dinner… And then to go and have celebratory tequilas with your boyfriend after you’ve won his parents over. Satin is also super easy to get off…Just saying.

Tea at the parents’ house
Because flowers aren’t just for summer, impress in some new season florals. Channel the girl next door in floral blouses with denim and statement boots, or go for floral dresses with biker boots and boyfriend leather. Even his nan will be impressed, we promise.

MISSGUIDED:florals for autumn – yes, it’s a thing

Think it’s best to scrap florals now that autumn has officially begun? Well, don’t. Wearing florals for autumn was once a <span class=”woR”>fashion</span><span class=”woD”>Fashion is a popular style or practice, especially in clothing, footwear, accessories, makeup, body piercing, or furniture.

faux pas. But, just like double <span class=”woR”>denim</span><span class=”woD”>Denim[1] is a sturdy cotton warp-faced[2] twill textile in which the weft passes under two or more warp threads. This twill weaving produces the familiar diagonal ribbing of the denim that distinguishes it from cotton duck (a linen canvas).</span>
, what was once frowned upon is now hailed by the fashion elite. Florals are no longer reserved just for <span class=”woR”>summer</span><span class=”woD”>Summer is the hottest of the four temperate seasons, falling between spring and autumn. At the summer solstice, the days are longest and the nights are shortest, with day-length decreasing as the season progresses after the solstice. The date of the beginning of summer varies according to climate, tradition and culture, but when it is summer in the Northern Hemisphere, it is winter in the Southern Hemisphere, and vice versa.</span>
. We’ve rounded up this edit to prove that you can actually pull them off for autumn too. Here’s how:
Daywear
https://www.instagram.com/p/BnnrKIBA-aG/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

For the new season, switch from bright, ditsy flowers and look to dark florals in autumnal hues – Think rust orange, mustard yellow, burgundy and forest green. During the day, opt for eye-catching small florals and lots of ’em. One word of warning, though: don’t mix and match your florals – you’ll be stepping into some serious curtain territory. If you want to add some layers, sling on a cable knitted jumper over your dress or toughen it up with a faux leather aviator jacket for added girl boss points instead.

Florals. Ground breaking? We’ve heard that one before. But these ones will actually break some ground. If you’re stuck in a rut over what to wear for work and you’re tired of the standard grey and black trousers day-in, day-out, switch it up with florals. Just throw on a duster jacket or kimono to layer up the look and keep an eye out for structured tailoring set to be big for fall.

Occasionwear

Got somewhere to be this autumn-winter? Whether you’re off to a winter wedding or got a date to be the belle of the ball, florals are always a safe bet for a big event, no matter what the season. You can always opt for a floaty maxi for whimsical vibes. Or, if dresses ain’t your thing, why not try a floral jumpsuit, so you can dance the night away with no fear of flashing your knickers. Bonus.

Get the look:

Evening wear
https://www.instagram.com/p/Bnedk__gC0b/?utm_source=ig_web_copy_link

Swap out your paisley printed dresses you bought into during the summer for some silky, darker florals. We’re starting to head into the party season so intense shades are an absolute must. Frill hems, Bardot necklines and deep V’s add a feminine touch to this eye-catching look. Satin is going to be a big player this party season and beyond, so invest in your perfect floral out-out dress now.

Date wear

Got a hot date and desperate for an outfit that looks amazing, but also like you haven’t tried too hard? A floral day dress is a perfect option. Ruffles and frills give a daytime vibe, and opt for softer, more pastel colours than you would in the evening. Worried you’re going to freeze your t*ts off? Layer up with an oversized knit, or even a blazer for smarter vibes.

It’s all in the details
Basic denim is always useful, but sometimes it’s nice to make jeans your main event. This street-styler has gone with statement western-inspired fringing, but there’s lots of ways to take your denim to the max – think embroidery, stripes or even ribbons.
Double up
Can’t decide which shade of denim to pick? Go for two. Double-wash jeans are your new basic blue alternative. We’re loving how this street-styler pairs hers with socks and sandals – it’s inspiring us to give our summer heels an outing this winter.

On those days when putting an outfit together seems like an unattainable task, reach for an oh-so-easy, all-in-one denim jumpsuit. Take a cue from model Sydney Lima and wear yours with a leopard-print coat and 70s-inspired platforms.
Acceptable in the 80s
The reign of 80s fashion continues, which means acid-wash jeans are back. As well as serving up all the nostalgic feels, it gives us a head start on next year – this trend was seen in the Resort 2019 collections of Isabel Marant, Miu Miu and Chloé. Tone it down with neutral outerwear and understated accessories.

ASOS: NEW DROP: CLI CLI BY CLIO PEPPIATT

There’s nothing we love more than when a high-fash designer makes a more affordable diffusion line – and that’s just what Clio Peppiatt has done for us for AW18. The on-the-rise London designer has created a capsule collection inspired by her dreamy main line, which is available exclusively at ASOS. We’re loving every single piece.

Serving all the fun your wardrobe needs right now, the collection is an explosion of bold colour, statement details and some nice 90s throwback moments. Oh, and there are serious crafty vibes too, as you can see from this <span class=”woR”>denim</span><span class=”woD”>Denim[1] is a sturdy cotton warp-faced[2] twill textile in which the weft passes under two or more warp threads.

Clio is known for her embroidery and we’ve fallen hard for the tiny hearts sewn into this number. Pair it with the mesh cloud-print top and some chunky ankle boots.

Just when you thought it couldn’t get any cuter, this heart-print <span class=”woR”>dress</span><span class=”woD”>A dress (also known as a frock or a gown) is a garment consisting of a skirt with an attached bodice (or a matching bodice giving the effect of a one-piece garment).</span> appears just in time for party season. Plus, we know it’s only November, but this has got dream Valentine’s Day getup written all over it, too. Go full-on Baby Spice with platforms, a faux-fur coat and some sparkly clips.

There’s also a quirky nod to the Western trend you’re not going to want to miss: if Carrie Bradshaw was feeling a cowboy moment we think she would have been very into this embroidered shirt. It’s born to be worn with your fave straight-leg <span class=”woR”>jeans</span><span class=”woD”>Jeans are trousers typically made from denim or dungaree cloth.
