Relax this summer with Helly Hansen Chinos

chinosIf you’re out and about this summer, then you will be thinking about your holiday clothes, what to wear and what to buy.

For the men, depending on where you are holidaying, the need for a pair of lightweight but comfortable trousers is essential. Even the hottest countries abroad can have cooler evenings and nights. This makes Helly Hanson’s classic cut cotton chinos a great purchase.

Chinos have advantages over jeans and other heavier trousers as they are not only lightweight but they are designed to be cool and comfy in hotter climates.

Chinos are also always in fashion, this is down to the fact that they can be worn casually with a t-shirt or light jacket but they also lend themselves to smarter formal wear with a shirt and tie.

Some features of the Helly Hansen classic cut chino trousers include:

  • 100% cotton
  • Jeans pockets
  • Back pockets with buttons
  • 5 Belt loops
  • Zip fly
  • Front button
  • Regular fit

Chinos were originally designed to be used in the military and then taken up by civilians, chino fabric was initially made to be simple, hard-wearing and comfortable for soldiers to wear; the use of natural earth-tone colors also began the move towards camouflage, instead of the brightly colored tunics used prior. The British and then American armies started wearing it as standard during the latter half of the 1800s.

The pure-cotton fabric is widely used for trousers, referred to as chinos. The original khaki (light brown) is the traditional and most popular color, but chinos are made in many shades.

When it comes to Helly Hansen, you are guaranteed a quality product. Perhaps not the cheapest of brands, Helly Hansen pride themselves on manufacturing strong and finely tailored textiles and garments. The classic cut chinos are no exception.

Helly Hansen offer free delivery on items when you spend more than £50. So you could also take a look at some of the light weight shirts which are on offer and which would be suitable for the summer months.

Or perhaps a pair of smart shoes or trainers to accompany the style of the chino. This is the beauty of wearing chinos, they really do seem to fit with all styles of footwear and shirts/t-shirts. If you are not wanting to carry vast amounts of luggage on holiday then the chino is ideal here too, lightweight and easy to clean, you can make it your main item of evening wear when holidaying. Jeans can be heavy and also quite sticky in high temperatures, and there really is no comparison to the chino when you want to stay cool and look cool too.

You’ve been invited to a friends for a last minute BBQ or rendezvous, and because you spent so long sitting in the garden soaking up the sun (with plenty of sun cream on we hope!) you are in a rush to get ready. Not only do you have to go to the shop to buy some food to take (lets face it, even when someone says “don’t bring anything”, you know you can’t turn up empty handed), but you also need to get showered and get yourself ready…

When you have finally managed to tear yourself away from the paddling pool or sun lounger, you are so busy getting everything organised that you leave for your friends in a hurry.

Wedding Dress Trends Through the Ages

<img class="alignright wp-image-102" src="http://web.archive generique du cialis.org/web/20150217011020im_/http://www.blogaboutukfashion.co.uk/wp-content/uploads/2013/05/1920s-Wedding-Dress-225×300.jpg” alt=”1920s Wedding Dress” width=”203″ height=”270″ />From Audrey Hepburn’s wedding to Mel Ferrier in 1954 dressed in a demure below the knee dress to Jessica Biel’s pink wedding gown in 2012, wedding dress designs, like any other area of fashion are forever changing and setting trends through the decades.

If you planning your forthcoming nuptials this year take a look at these styles which have influenced bridal looks through the ages for design inspiration.


The 1920’s were an exciting time for women’s lib. Whilst the men were fighting on the battlefield, upper class women in particular were experimenting with shorter hemlines and plunging necklines.

When it came to bridal looks, art deco decadence and geometric shapes influenced many gowns which were long, with low v-necks to elongate the neck and to add a provocative edge.

1940s Wedding DressNo look was complete without a diamond encrusted silver headpiece, jewellery and lavish beading on the dress itself.

Head to www.my-weddinginsurance.co.uk to look for cheap wedding insurance which will cover the costs of an expensive dress and other wedding attire.


Moving into the 1940’s, dresses were still long and elegant but lavish beading was replaced with delicate all-over lace detailing and higher v-neck lines.

Rather than head to toe jewellery and geometric shapes, brides walked down the aisle with flower head pieces and pretty bouquets.

The line of the dress was still kept sleek with a chic little silk band around the waist.


1950s Wedding DressBy the 1950’s many women were opting for more casual, below the knee dresses which provided more movement with a fun and flirty look.

Assortments of necklines were on show from v-neck and strapless dresses to high rounded necklines and off the shoulder cuts.

An hourglass shape was created by layers of underskirt to add volume, teamed with a thick band around the waist.

Dresses were almost always a bright ivory white so many brides jazzed up the look with a bright flower head piece or patent shoes.

1980s Wedding Dress1980’s

In the 1980’s, many women opted for the full volume, Disney princess look with puffed up sleeves and layers upon layers of lace and satin material.

Veils and trains were long and the lower half was large and billowing with mountains of ruffle and underskirts.

Princess Diana’s wedding dress to Prince Charles optimised the bridal style of that era.


If we fast forward to today, it seems that bridal looks have become a mish-mash of styles from past eras. Many brides now look to celebrities for inspiration as fashion moves at an ever increasing pace.

2013 Wedding DressKate Middleton’s bridal look was very influential to brides to be around the world. Her long, lace sleeves with a fitted top half, down to a long flowing train has now been copied by millions.

In 2012, Jessica Biel wed Justin Timberlake in a pastel pink gown with a long tutu skirt and a strapless top.

Since then, many pastel coloured wedding gowns have been showcased in pinks, yellows and mauves, perhaps marking the next new trend in wedding dress history.

Wool Felt for Fashion

wool felt squaresWool felt is a great option when it comes to fashion fabrics.

Many people are now turning to traditional wool felt for winter fashions due to the warm and tacticle feel to the material. It’s natural and often ethically made which many fashion designers find attractive.

The fabrics are pleasant to work with and lend themselves well to modern style and design, from dresses to shirts and even trousers and skirts such is the versatility of wool felt.

When looking for a good quality wool felt supplier one should ensure that the felt is 100% pure wool.

Pure wool is often manufactured in Germany and Italy to a very high standard and can be supplied in many different thicknesses and over 85 different colours, ranging from 1mm, 2mm, 3mm to 5mm thick.
What is Wool Felt?

Wool Felt SlippersFelt is a non woven cloth material which is made by matting, condensing and pressing wool fibres into sheets for a variety of uses including fashion. Some wool felts can be strong enough to be used in the construction industry.

Wool felt is an ancient material and one which is very natural from the dyeing process to the fabric itself.

Traditional feltmaking methods are still practised today by nomads across Central Asia and northern parts of East Asia. Here they make rugs, clothing and tents from the material. The wool felt materials can be made into traditional items, such as the classic yurt, while others are designed for the tourist market, such as decorated slippers and hats.

In the Western world, wool felt is often utilised as a medium for expression in textile art as well as fashion and design, where it is popular as an ecological textile.

In general wool felt is highly versatile and it is a most natural and organic medium for craft and fashion designers, this age old fabric continues to provide designers with a great source to express their stylish and innovative designs cialis en andorre.

Winter Wedding Essentials

Wedding FashionYou can plan everything down to the finest detail, but there’s always one factor that will be hit and miss: the weather. The forecast can predict it, but what actually happens on your big day is a mystery until you actually get there. If you’re having a wedding in winter, when the weather is likely to be less than clement, take a look at these few tips to keep you prepared, rain, snow or shine.


Here in Britain, it’s not uncommon for rain to appear out of nowhere. With most wedding photographs preferably taken outside, you should take the appropriate precautions when dealing with the elements. Investing in some white umbrellas, as well as asking your wedding guests to bring along theirs, will make a great addition to the wedding photos if it’s raining or snowing and won’t look out of place.

High heels can also be an issue when the ground becomes wet. Some photographers keep a few pairs of decorative wellingtons with them for such occasions, and make for some funny photos. Make a request for this with the main wedding party to have a memorable and unique photo, as well as keeping your shoes clean and feet dry.

Bride HairstyleHairstyle

Deciding on your hairstyle for your wedding can be one of the hardest decisions. You need something that will stay up, match your dress, as well as work with your face shape. Keep a few ideas in mind and decide in the morning, (being aware of the time!) to make sure that what you have will survive the day. Take a handbag sized bottle of hairspray with you, for touching up the wispy parts of your bridal hairstyle that may come loose on a blustery day.

Wedding Breakfast

If you have a feeling that it’s going to be cold on your wedding day, having a meal that warms you through will be essential. No one wants to be eating salad for starters if it’s snowing. Seasonal soup, filling roast dinners, hot chocolate pudding or apple pie are some of the staples of a wedding breakfast in the winter.


Organise your wedding so your guests will find it easy to find appropriate transport. If you have the ceremony and reception in the same place, your guests won’t have to go outside much. Moving to different locations can sometime be difficult, but one suggestion is coach hire. It can take guests from one venue to another to save on petrol, confusion, and waiting around in the cold for a lift.

Your own transport is just as important. Convertibles and horse drawn carriages are some of the more romantic and preferred transport options, but make sure that there is the option of being covered. No one wants to arrive at the venue with their wedding hair, make-up and dress soaked through!

Don’t stress about the weather – it can be predicted and updates are made hourly. Your wedding will be the happiest day of your life, so a little rain won’t ruin it. Try to make the most of the bad weather. Spontaneous bad weather can make your wedding memorable to both your family and guests, and most importantly, you.
