4 Winter Wardrobe Staples

This winter feels so long, doesn’t it?! That’s why I find myself constantly reinventing looks to keep my style fresh. Here are four items this season that I recommend keeping in your winter rotation. Double-Breasted Jacket  Old Hollywood glamour. That’s the feeling I get when wearing a double-breasted jacket. If you’re looking to shake up the traditional sports coat, I highly recommend exploring this dapper style. You’ll instantly be transported into a world of sophistication. These types of jackets traditionally run a bit looser, so for a more modern look, find one with a tapered waist. Also, play with patterns to give the jacket a more current feel. The jacket I’m wearing has a checkered pattern in different shade of navy, which gives it a more playful vibe. If an entire double-breasted suit seems a bit dated for you, create a more modern version of this popular 1930s style by pairing the jacket with dark denim, a bright turtleneck and lace-up boots.

Dressing For Outdoor Events 

It is the season of outdoor events and many guys wonder how to keep their style fresh while also looking appropriate for their outings. Below are some of my tips to keep you feeling confident in the choices you are making with your spring fashion.Go Bright: It’s not everyday that you can wear a pastel green or pink article of clothing. For these types of events, it is all about making a statement. While the ladies have fun experimenting with big hats, the gentlemen can have their own fun playing with color.

Don’t forget about the footwear – your shoes can also have a pop of color that compliments your top!Find A Perfectly Tailored Shirt: Whether you are wearing a preppy polo or a crisp button down shirt, the fit can make or …

Switch Up Your Basic Tee

It’s summer and hot hot hot in New York City which means that when I get dressed in the morning, I have one mission in mind: wear something that will keep me cool. But wearing tee after tee everyday can get boring and monotonous so my theory is if you incorporate a few printed tees in your collection, you can pull off wearing the same “type” of clothing because the different prints will leave a more lasting impression. This tee is from NYC-based company Frank Stella Clothiers, located on the Upper West Side. I paired it with a similar color short to keep a monochromatic look and threw in some shades to tackle the city sun! Stay cool out there, but have some fun with your style while doing so.👌🏻

Check back later for a post capturing the entire weekend later, much love 👊🏻

The Perfect Fitting Hoodie

   Who doesn’t love a good hoodie in their wardrobe? I’m guessing almost everyone has a few lying around.
