The jumper strikes back


Balenciaga-sphinx-sweatshirtThe sweatshirt is definitely trending right now, but these are no ordinary jumpers.  These super cool pieces of clothing, with their eye-catching prints, embellishment, vibrant colours and bold lettering, have been created not to lounge around in but to wear about town.

The sweatshirt has saved the day once more, bridging the gap between winter and spring and allowing you to dress comfortably and warm yet remain fashionably chic.

On the winter 2012 runways we saw designers like Balenciaga making retro right again with ‘80s-era imagery done in sculptural fits, Givenchy going all punky and…cross-dressy, while Proenza went further east for inspiration with Asian motifs and silky embroidered birds. Well, those designer sweatshirts are now here for the wearing.

Spring has sprung for Virgin Blak


“ Spring is sprung, the grass is ris, I wonder where the birdies is!? 

Birdie

These photos are from our first photoshoot of the year. They were taken at an abandoned manufacturing plant outside of Seoul and while it was still quite cold out, we had a blast.

These photos are the first batch of a seasonal photographic journey which we will be delightfully updating you darling darklings on throughout this fine year of 2013, a new beginning for Virgin Blak and we hope a new found more intimate relationship with you, our fans, our family.

Words cannot describe how much you mean to us, so maybe through pictures we may convey our innermost thoughts, feelings and emotions. These are just snapshots into our own realities, that which we have created just for you and for us. Be yourself. Experience the new black. Virgin Blak.

“2013 S/S shoot was expression of ‘dark’ (suppressed and covered) aspect of ourselves in today’s culture, styled in Avant-Garde theme, I hoped to capture the growing desire, which I believe to be inversely correlated with suppression.” - Virgin Blak Head Photographer

Celebrities Wearing Combat Boots – Winter 2013

Combat boots were manufactured to be worn mainly by soldiers during actual combat or during their training. When they was first made, noone ever thought they would become one of the most coveted fashion accessories for men and women everywhere. Yet, they have taken the fashion world by storm!

Although the boots have a rugged and masculine appeal, a lot of women actually wear them well with all kinds of outfits including dresses, skirts, skinny jeans, shorts and much more.

Here are some outfits that would look great with a pair of combat boots.

Selena Gomez out on the town with her studded combat boots:

Aside from the changing of leaves, the best thing that happened this fall was the changing trend in footwear! And yes, it’s time to ditch those plain, boring winter booties, because studded boots are now the trend in fashion. You heard it right – studded boots are so popular that you can see a number of the most famous Hollywood celebrities sashaying down the street with their own studded combat boots.

Selena Gomez looked chic in these black studded combat boots as she stepped out with friends for a lunch date. The 20-year-old singer is so pretty with her ensembles, and the studded boots are perfect for her overall outfit – cute denim shorts with inner pockets peeping through the hemline and a sleeveless white tank.

If you want this same look, grab this pair of Spiked Heel Leather Combat Boots. This pair of studded boots is equally stylish, but will cost you less than $70. The boots feature polished leather with lace-up front closure, round toe design and those striking silver spike studs at the back from heel to cuff. Indeed, this is the perfect footwear to invest in for this fall season.

Unfortunately, it will be too chilly this fall to pull off Selena’s shorts, but a pair of Virgin Blak skinny pants will look perfect and should complete your overall fall ensemble beautifully.

Pair your combat boots with your favorite leggings – Nikki Hilton’s style:

laceup_boots

If you want to achieve Nikki Hilton’s chic yet comfy look, pair your cute combat boots with your favorite leggings. This pair of Virgin Blak checkered lined Combat Boots is a great option. You can also throw on a stylish wrinkled wool blend coat just like what Nicky Hilton did. The flow of the jacket is a great contrast to the hip hugging leggings and the rugged look for your combat boots.

Imitate the look of a rocker chic like Taylor Momsen

rocker_chic

If you want to achieve the look of a rocker chic just like this teen rocker, Taylor Momsen did, don a pair of Virgin Blak Zipup/Lace Up Long Worker Boots. Add a touch of femininity to your rocker look by wearing a skimpy black skirt or a tight fitting LBD (little black dress). And of course, invest on a stylish black leather jacket to complete your overall getup. You can also wear a pair of fishnet stockings or torn stockings for a sexier look and a more edgy appeal.

Wear a pair of heeled combat boots with short shorts – Rachel Bilson style:

heeled_combats

For those who love to have heels on their booties, this pair of Virgin Blak Polished Leather Pointed Toe Ankle Boots is definitely a great pick! You will look even sexier if you pair this with short denim shorts, just like what Rachel Bilson did. There is a rule in fashion that says the shorter your shorts are, the lower your heels should be, and this is the rule that you should live by when it comes to pairing your heeled boots with shorts. This pair of ankle boots is also perfect match to your short denim skirt and will look lovely when worn over a pair of jeans, too.

Roughen up your summer dress like Miley Cyrus:

Buckled_boots

Who says you can’t wear boots on summer? Well, you can. Just look how sexy Miley Cyrus is with her combat boots and summer dress combo. So if you want to achieve an edgier and sexier look on summer, wear the sexiest summer dress you have in your closet and match it with this pair of Virgin Blak Buckled Engineer Boots. Forget about the ballet flats and dainty gladiator sandals. It’s time to toughen up your summer look with this pair of cool combat boots.

Tuck in your skinny jeans:

A cute pair of ankle combat boots such as these can look sexier if you tuck in your skinny jeans. A black pair of ankle boots paired with black skinny jeans will make you look taller as well as it gives the illusion of longer legs. Knee-high boots will look better if paired with short skirts, short dresses and short shorts. If you are going to wear your boots to work, try wearing a longer skirt over black patterned tights – it’s simple, yet trendy and chic.

Choosing an outfit to wear along with your pair of combat boots should not be a problem. After reading our outfit ideas above just visit the Virgin Blak Online Store and flaunt on the street just like these stylish celebrities would.
