Men’s Style Monday: What to Wear on A Date

Men's Style Monday: What to Wear on A Date
So, you’ve got a big date with someone you really like and you want to make a good impression. Whether it’s an active, laid back or formal date, you want to put your best foot forward! You have your plans all set about where you’re going and how to “woo” her, but how are you going to put together the perfect look for your destination? What you wear isn’t everything, but it sure will say a few things about you and the kind of man you are.
Look #1: Going to the theater, a nice jazz club or got fancy dinner plans? Chinos, a crisp button-up and some oxford cap-toe shoes are a safe bet for comfort and formality.
Look #2: Headed to the park, concert or a sporting event? A two-toned fitted hoodie, nice jeans and a pair of Chucks are the way to go to hang out and get a little active with your crush.
Look #3: Perhaps you’re going to an art museum, a family get together or spending time with your girl for the holidays. Classic khaki chinos, a chambray shirt and chukka boots are great for a date that’s just about in between – it’s safe for an outing that’s not too casual and not too dressy.
4. Don’t overdo the cologne! The worst thing could do is choke her with those ‘smell good’ scents. Here’s a list of colognes that women love.
5. Finally, keep yourself groomed! Hang-nails, unibrows, and abnormally long nose and ear hairs are unacceptable. You could look nice all day but if your hygiene is off, it’ll be nearly impossible to get her to pay you any mind. We pay attention to the details, so you should too!
Hope this helps!

4th of July Style Picks

4th of July 2014
Still trying to figure out what to wear for this weekend’s festivities? Above are 3 not-so-cliché looks that incorporate current summer trends! Whether you’re going to a cookout, spending an evening downtown to see fireworks, or attending a holiday soirée, I’ve got you covered!
1. Chic meets distressed with a modern cropped tank and all-American ripped denim. Take it up a notch with a sleek bun, a red lip and cobalt blue chandelier earrings. Tapered at the bottom, these boyfriend jeans will allow your red strappy heels to pop even more, then shake it up with an all white, big-faced Nixon watch.
2. Go sporty with this detailed mini and pair it with a printed navy tank. Simply throw on some hoops, a convertible red clutch, and navy pumps and you’re ready to go to that rooftop party.
3. I love this silk printed Ferina pant by Joie for a cool, boho-chic look! A dainty red tank works well to complete your holiday ‘fit with gold bangles, hoops and an off-white crossbody to match your midi sandals.
Happy 4th!

What to Wear to a Spring Brunch

As the weather starts warming up, in come the pastels and florals! It’s time to shake off those winter layers and shop new spring trends (see previous post). This look is perfect for an afternoon brunch on a warm day after church or a business meeting. I’m loving the detail on the hem of the skirt and the multicolored watercolor print on the blouse. The neutral accessories allow the blouse to pop and make its own statement. Cute, right?

Spring 2014 Must Haves

Spring 2014 Must Haves
1. Sheer is here to stay! Tasteful peek-a-boo detailing is refreshed with sweet versus sporty styling.
2. Floral is forever a spring/summer wardrobe staple. I suggest playing with untraditional floral prints like digital and more graphic florals, as well as abstract florals.
3. Fringe accessories, fringe outerwear, fringe statement pieces galore! Add some interest to your look with this fun and edgy element.
4. Graphic, contrasting black and white prints are classic, but even more popular this season. These types of prints are all about making a bold statement.
5. White, wide-leg pants were seen on all the runways for this season! Look fresh in a linen or cotton pair, and finish off your look with chunky wedges or strappy sandals.
6. If you hadn’t noticed, embellishment was pretty big this past holiday season. This trend will be carried on into the spring, featured on all different types of fabrics and garments.
Happy Shopping!
