JAGGED

JAGGED is the active wear range of some of Melbourne’s coolest and most finest A listers, Chris and Rebecca Judd. With Chris being an all star ALF captain for the Carlton Football Club and Bec being an all round fashion and lifestyle guru, it makes a lot of sense that the husband and wife pair would launch this amazing active wear line.

This is my first pair of JAGGED leggings however I hope there will be more to come because I TOTALLY ADORE them!  I was a little late on the Jagged band wagon as the prices are quite high. However, having worn these 7/8 compression leggings, I can now justify the spend. They fit so perfectly- they skim the legs effortlessly, there is a lot of movement to squat, lunge and lift dem weights and the prints are flawless and so unique. They are the epitome of active wear luxe.

I love how the brand is so Melbourne like but has also grown to have a big international following too. It’s definitely a brand to “be seen” in at the moment, however I think due to the quality fabrics and perfected fit, you’ll also get longevity out of Jagged active wear too.

On another note, in attempt to uncover more of the concepts surrounding the world of influencers, it would be fab to interview Bec Judd. She’s been an “influencer” in the Melbourne scene for many years and her social media presence is no doubt significant for many brands. So stayed tuned! And stay fit! Corny ending I know, but seriously JAGGED is a great brand and one to invest in.

How to wear the PJ trend outside the bedroom

PUBLIC SERVICE ANNOUNCEMENT- before you start reading this blog post, I was you to know that I wrote this entire piece as a trial article for an Australian fashion website I will not name. In my quest to discover how to become a fashion writer and have my own fashion business, I have realised how sometimes impossible this quest can be. I wrote this piece which is over 1500 words for no money and the word part is I never heard back. No feedback, no nothing. Not even an “I’m sorry you weren’t successful in this writer position role.” I’m not complaining, I am just looking at the intricacies of how hard it is to become a freelance fashion writer in todays world. it is so easy for people of businesses to take your work and never hear from them again. Never fret though, this is a nice article for my own blog. Just thought I would put it out there as an interesting point.

The pyjama trend is making mornings a little bit easier. For those that love comfort and literally staying in your pyjamas all day long, you’ll be happy to hear that the PJ trend isn’t going anywhere and is still gracing our runways in all different styles and forms.

However, it’s important to know that the trend requires a little more effort than simply throwing on your old worn in flannel types. You are taking the PJ look outside the bedroom so even though this look is supposed to say “no fuss”, just make sure it’s a stylish “no fuss.” 

From high fashion to celebrities to fast fashion, everyone is getting on board this trend that gives “put together laziness” the thumbs up. So how does one put together this look? It should have a relaxed yet sensual aesthetic.

Long hair for men has always been a stylish but edgy choice. Suave, sexy, dangerous, bad boy, hipster and street cool are just some of the many terms given to guys with longer hair. If styled right long hair for a guy can be an incredibly versatile look. However, not styled and unmaintained this look can sometimes look a bit scruffy and rough around the edges. 

Girls always love a guy who can sexily push back their hair. It’s a playful, brooding look. Or a guy whose hair they can run their own hands through. Long hair will always catch attention on a guy and maybe that’s why it’s such a street cool trend at the moment.

Very hipster but also very classic looking, there are so many variations of long hair for guys. And like for girls, in the change of a hair style, guys can totally change up their style up! Adapting your long hair for different occasions like us ladies. A shaggy look for daytime beach activities, a tied back ponytail for a hipster coffee date, slicked back and straight for fancy evening occasions and a messy natural long locks when running or hitting the gym!

For guys though the concepts of different hairstyles might be all too much. Never fret. Here we have compiled a list of six styles for long hair that might be worth giving a shot. They are super easy and will make life with long hair a man style walk in the park.

The High Street Gal

DSC_0043

Oh the fashion high street. For most it is a favourite street any where in the world. Fashion forward, cheap and accessible pieces. The fashion high street is for the trendy and those wanting to try new looks. I do love the concept – don’t get me I love experimenting with new looks just as much as any farshunnnnn girl- but somehow I have come to dislike the high street.

The little printed jacket

DSC_0978

I love a great jacket. I am usually a fan of the leather types, but when I saw this rocker style one in Zara, I just knew I could work it in so many ways! I think the leather collar detailing makes it even more special and the oversized motorcycle shape actually works really well on my petite shape. It almost reminds me of a 50’s style “Grease” jacket but with a slight aztec inspired moment going on with it! Perhaps that description has a bit too much going on in it :p

A casual fashion darling

DSC_0953Here is another perfect example of my in actual fact very casual sense of style. I chose this look to go for some drinks at a cool bar called the Terminus. The pink leather jacket was a Paris purchase. I found it in a cute, high end boutique store and it’s by a brand called Iro. It is made of the softest lamb skin I have ever felt and the discount on it was simply crazy! 1000 euros to 500 euros!

Pink thief in the night.

DSC_0948

I’ll start by admitting that this outfit was for a dinner date. I loved it so much, I made my sister/photographer, take a few snaps as I was already running late out the door. But hey, fashion before boys :p

I actually bought these jeans the day before from Topshop. As often happens with my styling imaginations, it randomly came to be that ripped black jeans would look simply amazeballs with my pink Zara coat. It’s Disney princess sweetness mixed with British “it” girl edge.

Something new, something borrowed, something blue.

DSC_0926

This shoot happened on a random weeknight where I suddenly felt inspired to get all dolled up in my bedroom and pair my new Witchery turtle neck knit jumper with something else blue!

Speaking of my bedroom, it really is a lovely little location for a fashion shoot. My room is immaculately neat (this is the first thing everyone always comments on), extremely girly and has way too many odes to my love of NYC. You’d have to be a almost stupid to not realise this obsession within 10 seconds of entering my room! But the pinks, sparkles and grand collection of fashion books, do make it a cute room. It’s my little Camberwell fashion haven.
