The Trends in my Mood board are tropical and cool summer style. The theme is also Tropical but with a mixture of denims. I would call it Tropical Fusion because it mixes with a cool summer style, street style and smart casual style making it the perfect fusion. You can also fuse this theme with any material type. I included denim shorts, a snap-back cap, a bucket hat, sneakers, sunnies, crew neck sweater, skinnies, an open collar shirt and T-shirts in this mood board.

Look 2: Prickly Watermelon

This look bursts with bright colours and details. He is wearing a Denim Flat Snap-Back Cap, A White Crew Neck Sweater with green sleeve and neck detail and a Cactus Graphic. He has a watermelon coloured sleeveless Hoodie with black hood and green cacti detail, and a watermelon coloured baggy sweats with cacti detail and denim detailed patches on and denim high tops.

Trend: Dapper Man. The look I created is smart and high-fashion. I bought a dark grey jacket and a long-sleeved, light grey V-Neck T-shirt from Ackermans, I've added formal shoes, dark blue jeans, sunglasses and nerd glasses to complete this look. This look is all about layering and it came together perfectly making me look like a little "Dapper Man"! I think for winter 2018 the Futuristic Trend would definitely rock! The Futuristic Trend is all about cyber-style, alien-inspired dynamic designs, metal fabrics and smart-enabled accessories making for glam garments that dare to stand apart from the crowd. This trend will definitely be BIG in 2018 because it's bold, high-fashion and the possibilities are endless! I would name this trend item "The Futuristic Hooded Scarf"! I feel so cool in this scarf like Darth Vader! I got my inspiration from futuristic movies like Star Wars and Guardians Of The Galaxy! This trend is also big for winter in high-fashion magazines and fashion runways all over the world! I see people wearing hooded scarves, long trench coats, glow in the dark, holographic and metal fabrics, smart-enable accessories like bracelets that can give you Wi-Fi, health benefits and a whole lot more! The possibilities with this trend are really endless and very exciting!

I chose my cousin Sufyan for this activity. He has awesome style. He loves jeans, sneakers, boots and bright-coloured t-shirts. His style is both cool and comfortable. He also loves to accessorise. I bought an awesome pair of black zip denim pants and a charcoal and black sleeveless jacket. It has neon orange details on the zips and the bottom of the jacket. Sleek 'Bad Boy' style! I would say definitely my boots and jeans are my favourites. It's really my go-to if I'm in a rush or just undecided. It always gives me a smart cool look and I never forget my sunglasses! My mum and dad are always on the lookout for the latest fashion and brands, so I always get really cool clothes that are always on-trend. I mostly look at magazines as well, so I know what's trending.

I would say my fashion icon inspiration is you, Nikhil. You are my fashion inspiration because you always look good, have the latest fashion trends and very cool hairstyles. You have a unique style and I love that! My number 1 tip for staying on-trend on a budget is to shop at Ackermans! They have such cool, stylish clothes at such cheap prices and you will always be looking super cool! For a fun day out with friends my perfect outfit would be a cool pair of shorts, a bright-coloured T-shirt, my sneakers or high-tops. I would accessorise with some stretch bracelets and my sunglasses. I would name my own fashion range 'Bad Boys'. This look is fashion that's sleek, edgy, lots of details and bright colours with awesome accessories that would complement it. Every tween boy's dream. 'Bad Boys!'

I bought a plain pair of dark blue jeans, a white T-shirt and 2 red T-shirts. For the jeans I cut and bleached the middle of the front and back legs, I cut out strips from the red T-shirt and Iron Man pictures from an old jacket and hot glued them inside the jeans. For the white T-shirt I did a reverse stencil with fabric paint and the other red T-shirt I glued on an Iron Man pic from another old T-shirt. For my jeans and the white T-shirt I found inspiration on Pinterest. For the red T-shirt it was simply my idea. Both looks can be rocked on the street, at parties and basically anywhere! This style is so unique and would definitely attract loads of attention! I absolutely enjoyed the entire process. This outfit was completely transformed from a boring plain outfit to a vibrant colourful one that is so unique and one-of-a-kind. I can't wait to wear it out. The first look I would name 'Punk Rock'. It definitely has that look. I would style it with boots, graphic T-shirts, a keychain and a cool jacket. The second look I would call 'Marvel Style'. It totally represents what I love and my favourite colour as well! This can be styled with boots/high-tops, graphic or plain T-shirts and an awesome bomber jacket to complete the look.
