PistonHeads Lists Rare Mitsubishi Lancer Evo VI RSX

A rare Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 6 RSX is up for sale over at PistonHeads. The 2000 Mitsubishi Lancer Evo 6 RSX is just one of 30 ever built by Ralliart UK — only 10 were painted the Satellite Silver color — and was first owned by a lawyer in Hong Kong where it was kept in pristine condition for 14 years. The legendary RSX Evo VI saw upgrades from its standard counterpart in the form of the removal of ABS, plated differentials, a faster steering rack, titanium turbo impellers, Recaro SR seats, and 30 extra spot welds on the body shell.

Ford Unveils the Hardcore 400 HP Bronco Raptor Off-Roader

Fans of offroading are spoilt for choice — you could have the Jeep Gladiator, a Mercedes-AMG G63, Land Rover’s new Defender, and now, Ford‘s brand-new Bronco Raptor. While the Bronco was an already formidable competitor to those SUVs listed above, it has now been given an overhaul by Ford Performance (responsible for the F-150 Raptor) to become the Bronco Raptor, an Ultra4 Racing-inspired machine that’s powered by the American marque’s exclusive twin-turbo three-liter EcoBoost engine that’s set to deliver around 400 HP. Packing a Raptor HOSS 4.0 race-ready suspension system, a fully-boxed, high-strength steel frame, and standard 37-inch all-terrain tires, and coupled with the fact the Raptor is 9.8 inches wider than a four-door Bronco, this SUV is destin...

These Styles Are Making Me Excited For A 2022 Haircut

A statement haircut isn’t for the faint-hearted but it’s oh-so worth the plunge and it’s more adaptable that you think. “A power haircut means a style that is versatile,” says super stylist Frederic Fekkai. “It needs to look great during the day and easy to transform for the evening, almost like a reversible jacket, if you will.”  It’s a cut that can be adapted by texture as well. “For curly hair, it’s about a modern shag that gives a cascade of curls and allows the hair to be swept to the side when you want to. For straight hair, the cuts can be more angled and asymmetric, so you can part it one way or the other to have a more dramatic style.” You Deserve to Make Money Even When you are looking for Dates Online.

Behold: The 11 Most Iconic Chanel Bags of All Time

When Gabrielle (Coco) Chanel, created the 2.55 in February 1955 (hence the name), it created quite the scandal. It was the first women’s bag to come with a shoulder strap, leaving women to do as they pleased with their hands—including shoving them in their pockets, for instance. It was considered a sign of rebellion, and women were thrilled with their newfound freedom. A secret fun fact about the bag—the secret zip pocket installed inside was originally intended for storing secret love letters as Coco Chanel, who was herself reportedly in the midst of an illicit affair, did.  Fast-forward to today, where the 2.55 is still a household staple. Worn by the likes of Blake Lively and Sarah Jessica Parker, nearly every member of the social elite owns a 2.55. You Deserve...

If You’re Not a Jeans Person, Here Are 21 Winter Midi Skirts to Try Instead

Winter is often considered the most difficult season to dress for. In summer you can throw any old dress on and look put-together, but in winter there’s a lot more to think about: which layers work without looking too bulky, will this dress go with tights, and exactly how washed out does this grey coat make me look? Like many of us, I seem to always resort to a dependable combination of denim, boots and knits. But if you’re not a jeans or trousers person, figuring out what to wear each morning when it’s cold outside can be even more of a chore. If that sounds like you, don’t fret. I’m here to tell you you can still take advantage of the ever-flattering midi skirt in the depths of winter. Dresses are slightly more complicated—unless they’re made from a particularly thick mat...

Kate Middleton Wore My Fave Expensive-Looking Trend (No Royal Budget Necessary)

Try as she might, no amount of Zara jumpers and Accessorize earrings could make Kate Middleton actually seem relatable—no offense, duchess. It’s just that a royal-sized budget, jewel-encrusted tiaras, and worldwide fame is a tad out of reach for the average person. That said, you certainly don’t need to spend big bucks to recreate many of the Duchess of Cambridge’s outfits, including her most recent one. Middleton was photographed with Prince William at an event for Church on the Street, a charity that aims to lift people out of poverty. For the occasion, she wore a Massimo Dutti coat, Iris & Ink jumper, and skirt, and Missoma earrings. Her camel coat, in particular, stood out because it’s such an expensive-looki...

The Boot Trends That Are Going to Be Big in 2022, According to Zara

From royals to celebrities, influencers to editors, you’d be hard-pressed to find someone (fashion fanatic or otherwise) who doesn’t have an item of clothing from Zara in their wardrobe. The Spanish retailer has developed a reputation for itself over the years for creating affordable, trend-led pieces and contemporary basics which can act as the cornerstone of any closet.  Though, Zara’s mass-market appeal doesn’t just end at clothing. The brand’s footwear is equally as coveted, and this winter in particular, we’ve spotted quite a number of expensive-looking boots among its collection, many of which, we predict, will sell out in no time. (Sadly, these styles don’t often hang around for long.) You Deserve to Make Money ...

6 Epic Outfits to Wear Throughout 2022, and They’re All in the Sale

As we approach the end of January (where did that month go?), the sales may be a distant memory. You may believe the best bits are long gone, but this is where you’re mistaken. Sure, the most eager of shoppers will have had their baskets full of bargains weeks ago, but some of the best designer sales are still going, including Ralph Lauren. The iconic brand has been dressing the fashion elite since the ’60s, and there’s no doubt you know someone who owns a polo shirt, logo knitwear, a heritage check blazer or that instantly recognisable sportswear. The label has been going the distance for decades, so there’s true staying power in its pieces, and this is what sets this sale apart from the rest. Whether you’re shopping for last-minute winter warmers and wanting to swaddle up in a cosy knit ...

7 Trending Colours H&M Is Backing in a Big Way for 2022

At the risk of sounding like a broken record, how great is H&M right now? The brand has always been one of the biggest high-street hitters, but over the past few seasons, it has surpassed even itself. What makes H&M stand out from other affordable fashion retailers is that it doesn’t merely follow the trends laid out on the runways—it starts them. It’s this constant ability to surprise and delight us that keeps us coming back to H&M in times where some sartorial inspiration is required. And that’s precisely what we find ourselves in need of at the moment as we enter the winter lull. With the novelty of layering starting to wear thin, but the ease of dressing and comfortable warmth of spring still a long way off, it’s easy to lose your way in terms of style. But H&M has the ...
