Outfit: Pink Panther

Pretty in pink? No, i’m a panther in pink!

There comes a time in every mans life when he’s unwillingly forced to change his style and keep up with the trends. Pressure from the lady friend to try new things (usually along the lines of “babe, Harry is soo stylish, you should get some tips from him” or she takes matters into her own hands and starts buying you clothes) are the triggers to this ‘male style’ crisis.IMG_6052Crisis?! What crisis? Just put on a pink blazer and strut down the high street smooth as a panther would. Here i am in a Zara slim fit blazer, complimented with a plain white stretchy shirt from Zara, along with pair of skinny jeans from River Island.

Comeback Season: Orange is the new black!

Better late than never but never late is better I know, but, ‘it’s been a while’ is an understatement! The good girls here at the Coup have done a sterling job keeping you Coups and Coupettes up to date and ahead in this wonderful world we call Fashion. However, just as the old seasons fade and the new ones bloom, I’m back to brighten up the days.

Although I’ve been away, the shopping never stops! On many occasions, I tried and tried and tried to resist temptation and stay clear of the high street. It worked, until I saw this black velvet two tone bomber jacket with leather sleeves from Zara.

It was paid for and packaged (all in my head) before I had even tried it on! It was a ‘must have’ as soon as saw it.

I wore a pair of black ripped skinny jeans from Zara to compliment the bomber jacket.

 Now finding these Orange Patrick Mohr Kx1 (sold out everywhere) trainers was like trying to mine gold in England. Search upon search, avenue upon avenue and one lead after the other, I kept coming up with nothing. I finally got my hands on a pair and parted with a lot of my money but it was money well spent! Last but not least, I accessorized with a Michael Kors  black chronograph silicone strap watch.

Outfit – Taken from his closet

IMG_3758_edited-1We all like a day off every so often, even a workaholic like me. On those days you’ll find me wearing a whole lot of menswear. It’s probably the secret tomboy in me. Don’t believe me? I should pull out some old photos. Actually, on second thoughts, I probably shouldn’t…!!

IMG_3763_edited-1
Ooh and can I add, how comfy these Hi Dunks are?! They are totally dreamy, and perfect for this mucky weather us Brits are facing at the mo. I definitely recommend them to anyone who is either intrigued or sitting on the fence!

 

I’ll be back in glad rags soon. Promise!

Outfit – Farewell summer

It seems as though the summer has well and truely desserted us! However, I have a few rays left in me. This will be the last of my ‘summertime fine’ collection as its now time for my ‘winter time cold’ swag.

Outfit – White Gold

IMG_0174 The gold rush is back and I’ve found my treasure! It’s been a while since I last donned some neck pieces but the urge is back and the word id GOLD.IMG_0180

As I’ve said before, every well dressed man should always wear a watch, but that watch needn’t put a dent your pocket. I opted to go with a classic piece for this outfit and wore a Casio watch. Cheap and cheerful, ever so reliable and always fashionable.

I’ve got an addiction for crisp, clean looks and I’m a fiend for a plain white shirt. Modeling this textured cotton slim fit shirt from Zara has left me feeling so fresh and so clean. Blurred Lines seems to be the summer anthem but thankfully I can’t relate because I have on my 3D spectacles making my views spec-tacular. I simply removed the lenses and Bobs your uncle……. you know the rest. 2 Chainz isn’t the only person with 2 chains (although there’s hardly a comparison in size and in price) as I too have one neck and 2 chains. Bought from ebay, they’re the best buy, accessory wise, for me this summer.
IMG_0189 This is a Zara inspired outfit as I’m decked out from head to toe in their merchandise (they should really start paying me!). Playing it safe, I’m wearing black circular trousers.
IMG_0208 IMG_0217 IMG_0232 IMG_0237These are the latest addition to my shoe collection. Black Monk strap shoes from Zara. Unfortunately no monk-like behavior resulted from wearing these, although, the only meditation I wanted to practice, was being at one with some laminate flooring, shuffling from side to side underneath a disco ball.

Outfit – Operation Camouflage

IMG_7689Growing up, every boy wanted to be in the army, wear the uniform, holster a gun and destruct all before him in a tank. Thankfully for me, ageing and wisdom camouflaged that dream as I’m too pretty to fight and too young to die.

img_7675Not wanting to look like an attendee at a fancy dress shin dig or the latest recruit on the front line, I’ve opted for some contrast with this leather panel sweatshirt from Zara.

Dressed in a pair of camouflaged jeans courtesy of Zara, is as close as I’m willing to get to that dream.

This look wouldn’t be complete without a pair of Converse. I’m wearing black All star hi leather thinsulate boots.

Outfit – Absolutely Stud’ding!

There comes a time in our lives when even the wonderful world of fashion just doesn’t have that special piece of clothing! You know, that special piece you randomly thought of as you were ‘Coup’d up on your sofa reading the latest issue of Vogue, and SUDDENLY, it popped up! The bulb of inspiration!!!!!

Inspired by studs, I chose to start small and experiment on a plain white stretch t-shirt from GAP. I simply thought of a pattern and free-handedly carried it out, accessorizing it with gold pyramid studs I bought on eBay. What do you think?

Image

Perfect for the summer season, I’m wearing a pair of mustard colored jeans from Zara. A pair I once was apprehensive to wear but finally I’ve got my taste buds to agree.

Now, I used to be a devout hater of Converse, but before I became reformed after having a conversation with Chuck. These days, my feet and footwear ‘converse’ like two women with the latest gossip hot off the press! So, finishing off the look, I’m wearing ‘All star hi Ecru canvas’ (my favorite pair).

Image

As a ‘stud’ muffin, should you decide to tackle the world with a watch-less wrist, don’t be afraid to accessorize. I’m wearing a tiger eye bracelet which still looks masculine enough, your wrists won’t feel left out.

To the Coups and Coupets, you’ve been absolutely stud’ding!

Outfit – What a Mock’ery?!

Variety is the spice of life and the best spices always seem to be red. So I’ve decided to spice up my style! Coming out of hiding and being christened for the very first time, the Mocks have finally seen daylight.

IMG_7379

What I like to call ‘a sophisticated pair of jelly shoes’, Mocks are made of rubber with its USP being a scented insole (helping to retain their fresh scent). These Mocks are so versatile. They are waterproof, can be worn on the beach, around the pool and can even compliment a casual look as I am demonstrating here.

Dressed in a white Mao collared shirt (if it ain’t white, it ain’t right) from H&M and blue trousers courtesy of Zara’s ‘Black Tag Collection’ which compliment my Mocks perfectly.IMG_7415

Every well dressed man should always wear a watch (words from my Mother), which is an accessory no man should go without. With that in mind, today I’m wearing my Jasper Conran black ceramic watch, accompanied by a black shambala bracelet and black studs.

And that’s how I get down.
