The trends I used are aiming at Eastern/Oriental wear. Mainly because of my love for Anime. I always admire the outfits such as the combat suits they wear. I would call this mood board MANDARIN'G for the daring man. I've included jumpsuits, headbands, dungarees, denim jackets and track tops, also sandals.

Look 1: Dunga-Lee (In a Chinese Accent)

In this look I used the blue denim dungaree with ribbed detail I bought from Ackermans and paired it with a white cotton Chinese collar shirt with 3/4 sleeves, and white takkies because dungarees aren't just for farm boys.

Look 2: Animézing

This is my favourite look. I used the dungarees as inspiration for a denim jacket and I designed the graphics on the sleeves with my two favourite Anime characters. I paired it with a black skinny jeans with zips at the ankles  and a cool and light white tank top and added some accessories.

Look 3: K.O!

Because the dungarees are a one-piece it inspired me to create another piece that doesn't even require a T-shirt. Because boys need quick fashion. This jumpsuit is black cotton very light and comfortable with a wrap-around front and Japanese signs printed on the back and a denim belt to complete the look paired with a chain and comfy thong sandals.

Trend: Havana Nights. I found this smart maroon China  T-shirt I really like and I thought of what would go well it. I then found this checked jacket of my dad's and thought it would look good with a shirt. Because it was bright but still smart I chose Havana Nights as my trend. I predict nothing conventional. Guys/boys are usually limited when it comes to accessories for their hair but I believe that will be making its way up for both winter and summer. I see headbands and turbans for guys trending. I call it the "turbind". A good accessory can complete any good look. I was just looking for something different to the conventional hat or beanie. This is big with Harry Styles, it's mostly for people who are willing to take risks with fashion and their hair.

Eli's style is really into super heroes and he owns quite a lot of character items which he gets from Ackermans. But he's also into sporty clothes. Because he is very active it does suit his lifestyle. I've called this outfit 'Solids & Stripes'. I bought a blue and white striped hoodie, and a pair of cuffed olive pants. This look is comfortable and still sporty and I've shown Eli how to look like a fashion hero. My favourite fashion item? This is easy... it's my black and red Spiderman track top I'm wearing. I will see cool clothes on the TV shows I watch and ask my parents if they can get if me.

I really like your style, Logan. Look at this great look you've chosen for me... so cool. Number one tip for staying on-trend on a budget: Well, my mom always shops for sale items and she gets great bargins at Ackermans, My perfect outfit for a fun day out would be a fashionable hoodie with skinny jeans and trendy sneakers. If I had a fashion line I'd call it 'e-Lines'.

I transformed shorts into a waistcoat by removing the inside stitching of the legs up to and including the zipper. Next, I cut slits on the sides of the shorts for arm holes. Now, turning the shorts upside down, I stitched the "shoulders" together and neatened the edges by stitching a hem. I then added a pocket hanky, chains, distressed it a bit and added safety pins and studs. My inspiration was to create something I would actually wear and nothing too over the top. But still have people pleasantly surprised when they see what I've made. At first it was hard tearing a brand new pair of shorts apart, but when I saw my idea come together it felt really awesome. I would name this piece 'Go Shorty' as it was shorts but I had to let it go. It will go with a range of styles: Punk because of the chains and studs and you can add black ripped jeans. I created a kind of hippy look.
