Shawl Collar Cardigan Styled Three Ways

Shawl Collar sweaters (especially long ones) have a understated elegance that I’ve always adored.  I have a few in different colors but I don’t get to wear them as often as I’d like down here in Florida.  They instantly give an outfit a refined look that’s perfect for any outfit!  Tip: keep bottoms fitted and don’t be afraid to layer with other long pieces for a boho-esque feel.

The Man Bag: It’s as Handy as it is Becoming

Who can forget the classic Friends episode where Joey discovers both the stylish allure and unmatched functionality of the Man Bag.  Over a decade later, American men continue to struggle with their masculinity and more often than not clump the Man Bag in the same category as messenger bags, satchels and rucksacks.  There’s a big difference, and the classic messenger bag is the perfect example.



David Beckham highlights how the brown leather messenger bag is both versatile and classy enough for the businessman on the move (ponytail optional).  I have no idea why Beckham’s bag is completely empty in this picture, but it’s roomy enough to fit his balls (soccer). Consider the J Crew Artisan Leather Messenger Bag – $225 at – Although a bit on the expensive side, it’s a worthy investment, it will never go out of style, and it provides the perfect glove for your beloved Macbook.




Hugh Jackman takes the opposite tack: a more refined black leather messenger bag plays perfectly against his more casual attire.  Try the Tumbled Leather Messenger Bag – $198 at






John Mayer underscores the biggest fashion trap that continues to befuddle men young and old: You don’t have to match everything!  It’s a wonderful canvas messenger bag that no doubt contains racy and lurid pictures of former flame Jennifer Aniston.  Unfortunately, it’s hard to let your imagination run wild because John was compelled to wear matching suede shoes and watch band.  Sunwashed Canvas messenger Bag – $55 at

Celebrity Copycat: Jennifer Aniston

A bit pricier than my usual Copycat post but I really liked Jennifer Aniston’s look and I think it’s a style that will be around for a while (especially in the color gray).  I don’t usually make a habit of buying dresses at this price online, but a J.Crew maxi dress ( or a long A Lined Hem as they describe it) is a hard one to pass up!

Solid Chiffon Whitney Long Dress – $325 at

Marble Centered Foliage Cuff – $10.80 at
