Unique Combinations- be daring. Have fun!

Boys will be boys, no matter their age. I swear I see it every day at work and at home. My husband acts like my teenager at times and my teenager acts like my preschooler at times and the preschooler acts like the adult of the house most of the time except when he needs to have that occasional tantrum/meltdown…it’s like I’m watching Lion King with the Circle of Life right before my very eyes.

Funny enough I love working with men! They are more easily satisfied than women when it comes to putting together their look/image. Even if they are super picky, finding the right looks for them are simple (quality of) Fabrication, Fit and Feel (how comfortable it is on them). Once that’s achieved the rest is a piece of cake! Women clients? Well that’s a whole other article, lol!

Nonetheless, the point is that men don’t change much from who they were to who they are all grown up…they will ALWAYS be versions of their younger selves.

Even when they turn 50 and above men will still be young at heart and hopefully their desire to stay en vogue and desirable to who “floats their boat” (women, other men or both; no judgement here!) will still be intact. Men above 50 should be able to dress stylishly and stay in trend…with a little more sophistication of course. Everyone loves a little edge, a little more swag mixed with that seasoning (aka salt & pepper hair), lol!

Here are a few looks I think a swaggadocious and still age appropriate with and a little edge and sophisticated style. NOTE: to properly pull this off one would need to stay physically fit and not let your midsection grow too wide/large…that’s not sexy no matter what you wear.

Hey Fellas! 10 Essentials for that Winter Sexy Wardrobe: Part 1

There are many ways to skin a cat (figuratively speaking, of course!). We all know there is no bible on style but masterfully being stylish and warm can be a feat for most. Fashion vs Function can live harmoniously in one look.

I love a man with a good sense of style. It creates a sense of confidence and allure to him that automatically draws attention and adoration. Nothing is sexier than a confident man. In lieu of the falling temperatures, I thought I’d share some guidelines to some great style trends for men this season.

Guys take note…print this and leave laying around the house. Maybe “Santa” will help with the list!

Materials to Seek: Tweeds, Wool Cashmere, Denim (always), High Quality Cotton, Suede

From Outerwear to Footwear here is Part 1 of Fall/Winter Must Haves for the Savvy & Chic Guy:

  1. Suede Footwear – supple luxury for the feet
  2. Weekender and Work Bags – stylish bags are a great finish to a look
  3. Great Quality Henleys – upgrade your t-shirt game with these staples in all colors (see color chart for inspiration)
  4. Sweatshirts – great with joggers, jeans also try layered with collared shirt add a blazer
  5. Parka – go for it with colors this season (see color trends chart); classics always are good although safe
  6. Trench Coat – wear with suits or casually with jeans
  7. TurtleNecks – wear with suiting instead of button-downs
  8. Navy Suiting – this classic color makes him look tall (er), dark and handsome…winning!
  9. Chunky Knits – it does so much! gives great texture to a look. comes in a wide array of colors for your individual taste. can be worn with everything from suiting to sweats and upgrade your style statement
  10. Light Jewelry – meaning just wear a little at one time to accentuate the sex appeal. a good bracelet, necklace that falls just below the clavicle and a ring for shits & giggles when feeling a little flirty; it really does lighten a look.

Stores to check out: Bloomingdales, Zara, Macy’s, H&M, Saks, Kenneth Cole,

Men’s Style Advice: White Hot Summer

It’s safe to say there wasn’t much of a spring, as summer just ushered its way in like nobody’s business. One sure fire way to keep cool, classic and fashionable is by rocking white. Whether you’re headed to a party, to work or just out on the town, there is a white ensemble that fits every facet of your personal style.

1.      A White Sneaker

A clean white sneaker is very necessary this summer, largely because of its versatility. You can wear them with shorts, sweats, jeans, and suits. With a wide variety of selections, you’re sure to find a pair that easily fits your budget. 

NFL Baller Tyrod Taylor sports a pair of low top common projects sneaker. Note how his trouser stops at an appropriate length just at the ankle.

 2.      White Jeans

Though they may be hard to keep clean, white jeans are definitely in this summer. The trick to these is finding the right fit for the occasion. Wear a skinny fit jean and dress it up with a loafer or sandal or a looser-fitting straight leg (please no boot cut fellas) and dress it down with your favorite sneaker.

  1. Fitted Tee

I’m not talking about Fruit of the Loom undershirts either. Invest in a few solid colored crew neck or V-neck that can take you from a movie date to running errands. Wearing a V-neck shows you put just a little bit extra effort into your look.  You can still be dapper and relaxed in your suit while wearing a T-shirt. Go straight from the office to happy hour to dinner.

 Here’s a few “Honorable Mentions”  for your Style Reference:

Hey Fellas, Are You Your Best Professionally Chic You?

It’s a new year and with that comes all kinds of changes to become your better you…at least it should be! I want to challenge you to commit yourself with new expectations of your aesthetic at work and play; but let’s start with work. Do you ever feel worried that your not taken seriously or maybe underestimated at work? Do you still look like you did in school/too young? Are you in looking like the position you want to be or like the one you’re in right now? At your interview it was paramount for you to give a commanding first impression however once you have that job it’s just as important to keep that look up as expertly executed as possible. Every last detail everyday should turns heads, get you compliments, and ultimately send a powerful message to the upper offices that you are meant to be in their ranks.

Hey Guys-

It’s a well-known fact that menswear is a much less complicated choice of options than it is for women; especially in suiting. Today the modern guy uses his accessories to liven up that cookie cutter dreary office suit with color and texture and variety.

NECKWEAR— A tie can pack just the right punch to an otherwise ordinary look with the right bright color or pattern. It’ll differentiate you from the “regular” men who pair dark ties with dark shirts. If a bold tie isn’t your cup of tea, try making that statement with your shirt instead.

COLLAR – The spread collar shirt is the standard now and will be for some time. Ginghams and plaids should be in every man’s repertoire; colors like brick red will set you apart.

‘KERCHIEF – We all know the classic white pocket square from the “RatPack” days to now and it still works for any suit however the new barometer on style and detail have professionals stockpiling an arsenal of patterned options in handkerchiefs. Don’t get intimated by the patterns and not knowing how much is too much pattern at one time. A good general rule is to wear one that plays off the colors in your shirt or tie.

Shoes- I am a big fan of the wingtip and brogue styles for men’s footwear. Color and texture in footwear is another vehicle to bring variety into an otherwise regular look. Always have your classic colors (black, cognac, chocoalte and navy) but adding options like cobolt or denim blue, burgundy, olive, etc… can make you look like a superstar when worn with a balanced hand.
