Leggings have always been popular since they first became big in the 1980s. From sports leggings, casual leggings to colored leggings are all rocking the streets. Let's find out what make them so special.
Fashion leggings are the most popular new take on this trend, by far. But why exactly? Well, one reason is that they are printable and easy to design for. With so many different subculture trends in fashion at the moment, like retro designs, the '80s and '90s revivals, and glitch art being so big, leggings are ideal. The hectic and colorful patterns of these trends mean that any shape or size or color scheme can be used, and as leggings move and shift as you walk and are close fitting, these patterns have to be carefully picked. Fashion leggings are best when they are not too organised, or uniform, so glitchy art and retro '80s motifs are ideal for their asymmetry and wacky looks.
Another reason is that they are often made of thicker materials for coverage, which means that colors print well. Fashion all round is becoming more colourful and exuberant, and fashion leggings are no different. These are one of the best items of legwear to print on, and it was a marvellous innovation in the world of fashion to make these items available for all the most creative designers out there.
Another big reason for the amazing popularity of leggings is their ease. They are effortlessly stylish, showing off your figure and being thoroughly comfortable while doing so. This way they are as comfy as pyjamas and as flattering as a tailored pair of pants. Leggings can be subtle too, and a simple pair of black leggings without a pattern is as versatile as it is flattering and comfy.
Then, the most interesting new development is perhaps jean leggings. Also known as jeggings, these are one of the best new items as some of them are rather lifelike. They even had stitched on pockets, some functional, to give you the look of real jeans. These leggings are ideal if you want the ease and comfort of leggings without having to wrestle with form-fitting denim or deal with belts and buttons.

With the success of their Ruby chocolate, Harriston is making the celebration even sweeter with two new additions to their variants of ruby chocolate - the Ruby Raisin and Ruby Almond chocolates !
The Ruby chocolate is made from ruby cocoa beans without the use of any colouring or flavouring, hence the ruby colour. Also ruby chocolate embodies an explosive taste of natural berry fruitiness so much that the millennial chocolate is said to be a chocolate of its own breed, carrying a taste which cannot be found anywhere else. Now adding raisin and almond into it, it is sure to please those who yearn for an extra punch of fruitiness and crunch in their chocolate.
Honestly from me to you, this Malaysian brand is something unique altogether when it comes to quality. Their chocolates are actually really good...! Even I would say comparable to Swiss brands.
If you haven't got the chance to taste this millennial ruby chocolate yet, you can now get the Harriston Ruby Raisin and Ruby Almond chocolate at RM 29.90 per pack and RM 50 for two for more if visit @HarristonChocolate
Exfoliating your lips is a necessity, especially in the drier months if you wana maintain that smooth and supple look while rocking your favourite matte lipstick. Many of us tend to skip the lips moisturizing and exfoliating part of our beauty routine with the excuse of it's bulky packaging and it's inconvenient to use. But now, thanks to Rihanna's Fenty Beauty The Pro Kiss'r Collection, you can get kiss-worthy lips anytime, anywhere.
I wonder who comes up with these product names as it seems to be getting longer with every new release.
The Pro Kiss'r Collection features two new products which are the Pro Kiss'r Luscious Lip Balm and Pro Kiss'r Lip-Loving Scrubstick. Pro Kiss'r Luscious Lip Balm (RM 79 / SGD $ 28) is a creamy moisture-lock lip-balm that smooths, softens and imparts an invisipink sheen for all skin tones and lip tones to prep lips, whether for lipstick application or to be worn alone. It comes with an ultra plush doe-foot applicator that treats lips to an addictive luxe experience with every swipe. The rich yet non-greasy shea and mango seed butters delivers an instant softer, smoother and lipstick-ready lips.
Pro Kiss'r Lip-Loving Scrubstick (RM 70 / SGD $ 25) is a fuss-free lip scrub in a twist-up stick packed with apricot seed scrubbers to gently exfoliate and nourish for instantly smoother and softer lips. Just swipe back and forth over lips, wipe it off and get 'makeout ready' or 'makeup ready' lips anytime, anywhere.
Considering just how minimal yet chic these two products look, now you can exfoliate and nourish in style like Rihanna. So get it now from Sephora before it runs out, because you know Fenty Beauty products are always selling like hot cakes.
Fenty Beauty by Rihanna Pro Kiss'r Collection will be available online and in store visit @sephoramy or @sephorasg for more info.
Over the past decade, society at large has become increasingly conscious of how its decisions and consumption have had a negative impact upon the planet and its wildlife.
We’ve ditched plastic bags, we’re eating less meat – the number of vegans in the UK has quadrupled to 600,000 since 2014 – and we’re being more conscious when it comes to fashion and beauty. So when it come to fashion we’ve put together some of the information you need to help you shop more consciously:
One of the first things to keep an eye out for when shopping is whether the brands you’re purchasing from, test their products on animals, or whether they use animal products at any stage of the production process.
Leather and exotic skins such as snake or crocodile, for example, have been considered a staple of the fashion industry for several years. According to PETA, leather is one of the worst materials for the environment. It causes similar levels of environmental destruction as the meat industry and pollutes the earth with the chemicals used for tanning.
Thankfully, most major clothing brands offer animal-free leather, fur and feathers today.
Looking at what a garment or beauty product is made of, and its country of origin, is the first step when purchasing your cruelty-free fashion.
One thing you really need to be aware of is the regulations within the country of origin, and also that fashion supply chains can span across the globe. A brand may source their buttons from China, cotton from India, and actually produce the item in Vietnam, for example, in order to find the cheapest options available. If a garment is ‘Made in USA’, that may only mean that the final origin of the product was the USA.
In China it is mandatory to test cosmetics on animals. So even if a beauty brand claims that its products are not tested on animals, this is not the case if their products are sold in China.
If you’re not sure, try using a widely used hashtag like #whomademyclothes to flag up any questions.
Many companies ensure that their clothing is labelled ‘Fair Trade’, which means that the company making the clothing has pledged to protect farmers’ and production workers’ rights.
Many corporations will also make an effort to spend time on volunteer work, sustainability, and fundraising. Debenhams, for example, have pledged to raise £1 million per year for their charity partners – and they are also vehemently against animal testing.
Another thing to keep an eye out for is how brands deal with their waste. An estimated 235 million items of clothing were sent to UK landfill in 2017, according to a report by Sainsbury’s. Brands like Sainsbury’s and Debenhams are amongst a handful of fashion brands who have pledged to reduce the amount of waste sent to landfill.
Ultimately, trying to shop responsibly can be incredibly difficult – but the first step is identifying the brands you trust to behave in a socially responsible way, and go from there.
