The Round-up: Menswear 2017

 
In recent years, menswear fashion has been going from strength to strength, with many taking a real interest into the men's fashion weeks and the street style that goes with it. 

Search engine Lyst, compiles global results giving us an insight into the past year's fashion trends.

For menswear it was all about outdoor brands, as Patagonia and The North Face topped the list of the most desirable men's clothing brands in the world, with Patagonia having over 20 million searches.

Skateboarding label Palace placed in the top three fastest growing  menswears labels out there, adding to the 340% search growth in skatewear.

Other key areas within menswear were sweatpants thanks to the likes of Supreme, YEEZY and Champion. Logo's were still a hot commodity and we saw denim trends vary both here in the UK and the US - America went for the straight leg, whilst us Brits opted for the skinny leg. And finally, after Drake donned a pair of Stone Island's cargo trousers, Lyst saw over 12,000 searches for the brand in March alone.

Take a look at the top searches and what men wore in 2017:

1. Patagonia and The North Face

2. Streetwear

3. Cycling clothing

4. Pink

5. Straight leg jeans and skinny jeans

6. Sweatpants

7. Cardholders

8. Logos

9. Cargo pants

10. Rompers

11. Sneaker collaborations

Fashion 2017


As the years go on and social media continues to go from strength to strength, every day we're exposed to a whole new bunch of terminology and straight away they're adopted into our vernacular. And with fashion, this is no different.

Last year we saw certain words such as lit, slay annd basic at the forefront of fashion describing pretty much anything and everything that we were wearing the past year. And just like last year, global fashion search engine Lyst has analysed over 30,000 online articles from 100 different fashion and lifestyle publications to find the most used fashion words of the year. 

Looking at the most frequently occurring combinations and using sentiments analysis to find the most popular word, they found that 'power' was at the top of the list, making it the fashion word of the year.

Power in terms of colour, silhouettes, textures and powerful statements. Fashion in 2017 took a stance and fought back to all the madness that went on over the past year.

Runners up continued on the theme of power, with 'woke' coming in second and 'statement' in third.

As for the whole list:

1. Power

2. Woke

3. Statement

4. Floral

5. Millenial

6. Extra

7. Masculine

8. Cult

9. Ugly

10. Vegan

Little Miss Inventor

 
Remember the days of when you were at school and you got to go to the library to pick out a new book and everyone would fight over which Mr Men you wanted. From Little Miss Princess to Little Miss Sunshine, there's one for everyone and you automatically start to relate to your favourite.

In a bid to inspire young girls to see it's not just about being bossy or a princess, the latest character, Little Miss Inventor, in the much-loved series by Roger Hargreaves, is here to show girls that you can be whatever you want.

The 'intelligent, ingenious and inventive' character is due to appear in the new book launch set for 8 March 2018 to coincide with International Woman's Day and British Science Week.

"Her brain is full of ideas, which she turns into extraordinary invetions in a shed at the bottom of her garden," reads the blurb. "As well as inventing things for herself, she also invents things for her friends, whether it's a chatter-natter hat for Little Miss Chatterbox or a back-pack-snack-attack for Mr. Greedy."

"But her greatest challenge yet has her stumped, what an earth could she invent for Mr. Rude?!"

"I always enjoy creating a brand new character for the series and it was fun coming up with lots of crazy inventions for Little Miss Inventor's home and silly ones for all her friends," says Adam Hargreaves, the son of founder Roger Hargreaves. "It's also been nice to write a story that promotes a positive role model and to challenge a stereotype, if only in a small way."

This might be a small step but its one in the right direction that hopes to bring inspiration to all those driven and enthusiastic young girls out there.


Happy Thanksgiving

Trending: Blotox


You've just stepped out of the hairdressers after having a much needed blow dry and you're feeling yourself. Your hair has gone from drab to fab, and nothing can stop you. You're ready for your big night out and the compliments that you just know are going to come your way. 

Why can't everyday be like this?

Well, if your up for injecting your scalp to make your blow dry last longer then this could be a reality.

According to Us Weekly, the latest trend to hit Hollywood is Blotox - botox injected into your scalp to make the blow dry last past its usual sell-by date.

A favourite amongst many, Botox has long been used to get rid of a wrinkle or two for some and used to decrease sweating by injecting into the armpits and feet to reduce excessive levels of sweat.

So how does it work, some might be asking.

Working just the same as injecting into your armpits, by injecting into the scalp and underneath the hair follicles, this prevents any sweat or oils from messing up your luscious locks.

Dermatologist, Dr Michelle Henry says she started giving her clients Blotox treatments after many women said they were reluctant to hit the gym because they didn't want to ruin their blow-dry.

"It makes a huge difference for the working woman who wants to be fit but still look great," she says. "For patients with curly or kinky hair, their hair will remain straight longer."

Interested in hearing more? Well the actual procedure works by preventing communication between the nerve ending and the eccrine gland - which is where sweat comes from. When this signal is disrupted, you don't sweat, meaning you won't get a sweaty head.

But it's not just a simple injection that you'll need. Oh no, you're looking at around 200 injections carefully placed under your hair follicles, but still only taking 20 minutes so it can't be that bad!

At £600 a go, if you're an absolute sweaty betty with a spare few monies and want your hair on fleek all day, everyday then go for it, it just might be worth it. But if that's one hell of a stretch, then we'd say invest in a decent hairdryer and rollers and get that technique down. With Black Friday just round the corner, you're bound to get your hands on one hell of a bargain.

Or just pop down to Boots and get some dry shampoo.

Barbie Shero: Barbie gets a Makeover


Barbie has got a new look! One that we've been waiting and waiting for.

Introducing the new Hijab wearing Barbie, inspired by American fencer and Olympic bronze medalist, Ibtihaj Muhammad.

When Mattel told Ibtihaj that she would be the new inspiration for their next Barbie doll, she cried. Tears of joy, she made sure that her doll would be a true representation of her - dark eyeliner, big, strong legs and of course, the Hijab.


"It's something I wear like I wear a shirt or I wear pans," Ibtihaj says.

She says that she hopes children will "take it off and try it on their other Barbies."

For the initial product, the doll was dressed in a white padded fencing outfit which had 'Muhammad' printed in black lettering across the back with a removable helmet which reveals her hijab. 

Part of the Barbie's Shero collection - female heroes - which aims to encourage children to be anything they want to be and the women who break boundaries to inspire the next generation of girls.

"I think its revolutionary for Barbie to take a stand in this moment we're in," she told People.

Lisa McKnight, senior vice-president in charge of Barbie strategy at Mattel tells the New York Times that their new strategy is to find more women to base Barbie on.

"The trifecta - someone like Ibtihaj Muhammad, who has broken boundaries and inspires girls, and played with Barbies as a girl herself."

So, what Barbie can we expect to see next?

"Clearly, there's a lot of interest in women in STEM - science, technology, engineering and mathematics," says Lisa.
