Firetrap – Contemporary Style With A Maverick Spirit

Investing in a new style can be troublesome. Either the outfits worn by impossibly good-looking models and famous celebrities are too expensive, or high street alternatives just fall just short of the mark in terms of quality or ‘wow’ factor. One brand that meets an ideal compromise between the two is Firetrap. Since 1993 they have consistently delivered classic style with a contemporary twist that doesn’t cost you a fortune earth. Their designs are quite earthy and understated – no garish neons or gaudy blocks here – so they’re ideal for anyone wanting to make an instant impression of style know-how without setting tongues wagging.

Long, flowing dresses never go out of style but this summer they’ll be in particular demand, with floral prints taking centre stage. A Bella Maxi dress from Firetrap, with its almond colour and warm red and orange flowers, is less showy than some contemporary designs and can be worn months after the summer too, with its autumnal shades.  Ladies looking to wow at work will find that Firetrap has plenty of alternatives to the usual pieces found in shops: a sleek, ultra-modern Ray Stripe Jersey dress gives just the right aura of professionalism without slipping into ‘dull’ territory.

In men’s fashion, you can capture the industrial look particularly well: wear Firetrap jeans with some worker-style boots, a chain-detail belt and a grey hooded jacket will add a little rugged charm to your man, while fellas wanting a softer look will love their soft knitted hoodies – you’ll have difficulty getting it off him to put it through the wash!

You can buy Firetrap clothing at Littlewoods, where you’ll find the styles highlighted above and much more besides. The cold weather may be barely behind us, but it’s never too early to start shopping for that summer wardrobe!

Celebrity Copycat: David Beckham’s Look for Less!

Gotta love David Beckham’s casual look :  laid back, clean cut and best of all affordable and easy to emulate.  Not really into the whole sweater tied around the waist look.  It certainly doesn’t look bad on him, but if it’s not your style you can always just simply wear it (if the weather calls for it of course).  Get Beckham’s look for less!
