When it comes to weekends, why wouldn’t you want to spend them dressed as comfortable and as cosy as you possibly can? Personally, we tend to live out our weekends dressed in the same workout leggings and oversize hoodie. However, whether you’re grabbing brunch outside with friends or just running errands, you don’t necessarily have to sacrifice fashion for comfort. By paring your typical lounging attire with pieces that are more sophisticated, you’ll create a look that is both put-together and comfortable—truly the best of both worlds.

The Weekend Edit

FRI 19 Mar '21

Whether you stayed up late working or didn’t sleep well the night before, there are many reasons to feel tired in the morning. But that doesn’t mean you need to look tired when you wake up. Puffy, red eyes, uneven skin tone, and dark under-eye circles are a huge giveaway that you aren’t rested, which can make you seem sloppy and unprepared. But even if you feel tired, there are ways to cover up the signs of sleep deprivation and appear less tired when you wake up.

The UK High Street was under considerable pressure even before the COVID-19 pandemic arrived. Since the world has been in lockdown, stores have been closed with no forecast of returning back to normality. We often associate the UK high street with areas such as London's Oxford Street where large flagship stores are based, ensuring brand awareness and positioning for companies. However, the main UK market is in town and cities across the country, and they will be struggling even after the pandemic.

Music and fashion are interconnected on several levels: one influences the other and vice versa, in a never ending shift of trends. Having a strong image can help the musicians or bands to stand out amongst all the up and coming artists in the industry. The reason why fashion and music became so linked is because music became a method of showing individuality, political beliefs, and ideas rather than just pure entertainment.
