It’s almost the end of a year and winter hasn’t officially arrived…thank goodness! Nonetheless, we should get everything ready before the temperature drops and catches us off guard.Put those summery pieces that “pass” in this balmy fall weather away and start asking yourself…What are the fashionable looks for winter 2016 I need to have? The answer is a layered one but allow me to help start you off…GET SOME PLAID! All kinds of patterns in plaid. All kinds of colors in plaid. Trust me!

What is Plaid you ask? simply put; the definition is: a checkered or tartan twilled cloth, typically made of wool. Simple right? Traditionally, the cold season makes us bring out a lot of dark and neutral shades. Thanks to Britain influence, plaid is not only a “blah” beige, but a vibrant catchy red tartan that catches your eye and now even more evolved updated and edgy with brighter bolder colors, bolder patterns in small plaids to large graphic prints.

In my opinion, the good ole’ British vibes are very in demand this year. They are warm to wear and they bring women an effortlessly adorable look. But there is nothing wrong with uniquely edgy and sexy so try the more modern styles but try mixing the two.

Making room for plaids in your fall/winter wardrobe is easier than one might think. Great plaid prints come in capes, coats, jackets, pants, shirts and accessories like scarves, weekend bags, gloves, hats, shoes and more for both men and women. No excuse to embrace the trend. I like mixing the plaid patterns and bold colors from brands like Barbour and one of my favorite designers Barbara Bui.

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,
