Fashion| The 70s Autumn (fall) / winter 2011

Just as the '50s and '60s are back, so too are particular elements of the '70s.
There are two main aesthetics: '70s bohemian, and '70s sophisticated glamour.
When it comes to the latter, think dresses that fall like shimmering water in the evening and high-waist pants with elegant blouses by day.

Trending| ''Planking'', sickest trend ever?

Planking began as "playing dead" in 2003."On one’s belly", 2004, and the Lying Down Game (1997 or 2006) in South Korea, Europe and Japan.The term "planking" was coined in Australia and became a hype (fad) in 2011.

Bike Plank ; Facebook.
The Planking Australia group on Facebook has announced 25 May 2011 as the inaugural annual Planking Day, to encourage new and group planking. On May 13, 2011, a 20-year-old male from Gladstone in central Queensland was charged for allegedly planking on a police vehicle.

Planking, is an action of lying your Face down with arms to the sides of the body, in unusual public spaces
and photgraphing it.
Planking is just like playing dead on extraodanary places.
Just act like a plank, stiff.

Rules Of Planking :

Planking is a simple yet effective procedure.

'You got a body, you got a Plank' Ashley Wilson 11

But one can't just go around lying down willy nilly, There are a few rules that need to be adhered to.

When performing a Plank:

1/ You must always lay face down, ensuring your face remains expressionless for the duration of the Plank.

2/ Your legs must remain straight, and together with toes pointed.

3/ Your arms must be placed by your side, held straight and fingers pointed.

4/ You must make it known that you are Planking. Saying 'I am Planking' usually get this across. Sternly announcing it will ensure a good result.

5/ Your safety should always be considered. Properly thought through Planking procedures should always go to plan. Never put your self at undue risk.

6/ Every Plank that is captured must be named.

Here are some extraordinary  pics;

Fashion| The denim blouse

The denim shirt/blouse makes a comeback this season with the collections on the catwalk including Chloe and G-Star. It is up to you how you wearing the shirt. Open or closed, in or out of your pants, a light or dark shade, wide or tight, you just as long as you feel comfortable. We are particularly impressed by the combination Chloe, where the camel color was combined with the light blue color.

Fashion| Role it up!

Blazers with rolled up sleeves are so totally 80s and set to bang on trend for Spring/Summer '11.
Bur rolled up sleeves aren't the only thing that can/will be rolled up.
Rolled up trousers, chinos, shorts and bermuda's.
Oversize boyfriend style jackets are best for recreating this look and to bring the rolled up jacket up to date just team it with some skinny jeans and a retro 80s tshirt.
The highstreets are already on top of this new trend with most stores currently stocking their on take on the look.

Fashion| The Chino pants

The Chino is back in the sprin/summer of 2011. This time is the pants not fussy but super hot and totally in! The Chino pants are less extreme than the harem pants with low croch and is has a little more space around the hips.
This pants will join in the sloughy (baggy pants) trend. The absolute golden rule for these trousers is : keep the top narrow to maintain a good balance, We've seen the pants coiled, and cover with casual or business of cut. When the high summer soon will arive, I gues we'll even see a Chino bermuda short. What you'll also see is Men with Chinos. Its quit a trend!
An important question that comes for women/girls with these pants trend is: What kind of shoes I wear there? The answer: Make it a party. Pull female shoes to be proud of, for example with additional straps, or a special sole plootjes. Choose eenschoen preferably with heels, which need not be high tower

Shoes| Converse and Dickies

Converse & Dickies.

Converse and Dickies ; two American brands that are known for their raw simplicity and everyday reliability.
Converse's collabration with Dickies, is to my opinion great.
Chuck Taylor All Star shoes and Dickies are possibly the standard issue uniform of a great American style. For Spring 2011, Converse and Dickies have paired up by blending the two with simple, clean versions of the Chuck Taylor All Star shoe featuring Dickies detailing. Converse is also unveiling the new Chuck Taylor All Star Classic Boot – a new upper inspired by the classic work boot, with moc toe detailing and a classic Chuck midsole and outsole. On all silhouettes the upper material is in a Dickies iconic twill.
