London Fashion Week 2009 is taking place between 18th – 22nd September and is located for the first time in the heart of London. A deluge of designers will be descending on Somerset House & 180 Strand, to unveil their Spring/Summer 2010 Collections to a professional audience of fashion editors, buyers and the general press, from the UK and from around the Globe.

So, if that sounds a bit like you and your friends when you are all getting ready for a night out, then you could do with the incredibly handy Fashion Emergency Kit!

It includes a useful nail file to reshape and buff your digits and 2 x hair elastics so you can sweep your locks up into a glam hairdo. You also get some plasters, which you may need to sort out those blisters after all that strutting and a face wipe and some paper soap, to help freshen you up and get rid of any makeup mistakes. Then last but by no means least, the most important two elements to any fashion conscious devotee, a sewing kit (for any last minute repairs) and of course, some glamour tape to sort out low cut dresses, hemlines and any other fashion faux pas!

Fashion and accessories go together like Dolce & Gabbana. Therefore, for any stylistas who love to mix and match their outfits why not get them the gift of a gorgeous Ribbon Watch? This fantastic Quartz watch comes with 11 different interchangeable ribbon straps.

Men's Fashion - Fashion Faux Pas To Avoid

men fashion
By Andrew Stratton

Ensure that your appearance is decent and acceptable by avoiding these fashion blunders. Men are given a bad rap when it comes to fashion and understandably so.

There are some men that often go out in public looking like they dressed in the dark. If you worry that you might be categorized with these blind dressers, make sure that you avoid the following fashion mistakes.

White Socks with Dark Pants

Nothing looks worse than blinding white socks when you're wearing nice trousers. Unless you want people to stare at your ankles, it is best to match your socks to your trousers. For example if you are wearing a dark blue suit and brown leather shoes, the best option is dark blue socks. The next best thing would be neutral brown socks to blend in with the shoes. The whole idea is to minimize attention drawn to your ankles.

Novelty Ties or Clothing

You may be a fan of Star Wars or you may be a festive soul, but you don't have to wear it all over your clothes. Novelty ties, shirts, and other clothing are the opposite of sophistication. They can be tempting, but if you want to be taken seriously, leave the blinking Christmas reindeer tie at home.

Big Shoes

Clunky shoes are a thing of the past. A decade ago, they may have been acceptable, but today, classic slim shoes work best.

Clothes that Don't Fit

If you follow any fashion rules, this may be the important of them all. Wear clothes that fit! Avoid disgusting everyone by avoiding clothes that are too tight. Also baggy and sagging clothes suggest immaturity and should be avoided unless you are pursuing a career as a rap star.

This also applies to pant length. When wearing jeans it is appropriate to wear them to floor. However, when you are wearing trousers or suit pants, the hem should end at the top of the shoe heel. And unless there is a flood, you should make a strong effort to avoid pants that are too short. A good tailor can ensure that your trousers are cut to the perfect length.

Brand Names

Clothes that showcase the brand name all over the outside are not classy or acceptable unless you are serving as a sponsor. Don't let the clothing companies use you as free advertisement.

Short Sleeve Shirts with a Tie

Unless it is a uniform or you work fast food, avoid wearing a short sleeve button up shirt with a tie. It suggests lack of class and looks silly. Stick to full sleeve button up shirts when wearing a tie.

Too Much Jewelry

Don't wear too much bling. When at the office or on business, one nice watch is sufficient but make sure it is not so gaudy that people can't look at anything else. Save all other rings, necklaces, earrings for after-hours occasions.

Dressing appropriately is critical to success because it is your appearance that gives the first impression. If you avoid these common men's fashion faux pas you will certainly be on the right path to becoming a successful dresser. Before you know it people will be admiring your dress rather than laughing at it.
