Every fashion-conscious man or woman needs at least one bespoke tailored suit in their wardrobe. A suit can be worn on its own as a formal garment, or split into tailored trousers, blazer and waistcoat to become separate elements of thousands of different outfits. Here at Hemingway Tailors we can make you a fantastic tailored suit bespoke to your specifications, and offer advice on how best to wear it. We aren’t the only ones reporting on fashion, style and the latest trends, however – countless blogs and websites have their own views to share on the subject. Take a look at four fashion blogs you simply have to check out.
We love The Sartorialist here at Hemingway Tailors. Rather than give the lowdown on the latest catwalk shows or gossip about what designer labels are being worn by different flavour of the month celebrities, The Sartorialist concentrates on global street style. An image-heavy blog, The Sartorialist’s photographers walk the streets of some of the world’s most stylish cities, snapping pictures of real people with real style. The Sartorialist might be looking at lace skirts in Milan one week or tailored suits in Paris the next. A mixture of men’s and women’s fashion makes this blog an inclusive one, full of great visual tips to help style out your favourite outfits.
The brainchild of fashion writer and editor Susanna Lau, London-based Style Bubble is one of the most popular fashion blogs on the net. Now 10 years old, the blog focuses on women’s fashion – specialising in up-and-coming designers and relative unknowns. Susannah, or ‘Susie Bubble’ as she’s more often known, combines excellent images with insightful comments, analysis and advice. Style Bubble is a very personal fashion blog owing a lot to Susie herself. Susie’s fun, approachable writing style makes Style Bubble a blog we can get lost in for hours…
5 Inch and Up
A Finn now based in London, Sandra Hagelstam is the face behind hugely popular fashion blog 5 Inch and Up. Sandra is the subject of many of the shoots on her blog, but her stunning face and figure, impeccable taste and unerring eye for a trend mean no-one can resent the decision. 5 Inch and Up is primarily concerned with designer label fashion, and the shoots are glossy, tasteful and always chic. Check out this fashion blog for inspiration and advice on what to wear and how to wear it.
It seems if you’re a young woman of enviably cosmopolitan heritage, you’re set to make a great fashion blogger. Rumi Neely is of Japanese, Dutch and Scottish descent, and her blog Fashion Toast is a suitably eclectic mix of street style, designer fashion and Neely’s own clothing brand. A model and designer as well as a blogger and fashion writer, you don’t get more cutting edge than Rumi. Check out Fashion Toast to learn at the knee of one of the fashion world’s leading lights.
Once you’ve been suitably inspired by the above blogs, you’ll need a few new garments to add to your wardrobe. Our made-to-measure women’s tailoring service will help to make you a suit like no other. Why not take a look at the Hemingway Tailors blog for more fashion news and views?
