Trending locally

From That Look Boutique’s last editorial featuring Lieve Blanckaert and Kimberly Niles, I decided to select the trends that I thought were cute and questionable.

Swinging 70s

I was browsing YouTube the other day and came across a video of H&M promoting the notion of re-fashioning and re-wearing the clothes in your wardrobe.

Regional political style

It was Miuccia Prada who said fashion is an instant language. While some may beg to differ, I personally believe politicians and women married to politicians must learn to master the art of “talking through their clothes” and using it as a channel to communicate their values and beliefs.

Wants and needs

I was in conversation earlier this week with a friend of mine and I was relating to her the frustration of being stylish in a world where fashion has become ‘dog cheap’.

Spice and July trends

Not too many female dancehall artists in the Caribbean have managed to acquire a social media following like Spice and establish stable brand identity.

Granger’s style

It’s been just over a month since the new government has been in power and boy oh boy was I dying to see the wardrobe of the new President!

The ‘Granny’ dress

‘Summer’ buys

We have become fixated with using the word “summer” for the months July and August and having adapted the season terminology, we also take everything that comes with it.

Who wore what

The Last Word

This week my focus is on the style diary of the women who performed at the GDF Anniversary concert last week: Guyanese Jacki Jaxx and Timeka Marshal and Jamaican Tanya Stephens.  

Local trends

I did a bit of shopping and browsing locally about a week ago, as I’m trying my best to stay away from internet shopping.

Fabulous Lystra

UK-based Guyanese style icon Lystra Adams, commonly referred to as ‘the Queen of Instagram’ is possibly the most vivacious Caribbean woman of style to follow on the social media platform-Instagram.

Kes and Bang Bang TT

Kees Dieffenthaller, lead singer of Kes the Band, is incredibly gorgeous. I don’t know what your taste buds are like, but when it comes to men, if they’re talented, ambitious and good looking, they are ‘my type’.
