My favorite part about Keeping Up With The Kardashians has to be Scott Disick, I know I can’t be the only one! I love his sense of humor and his over the top extravagant style. His styles ranges from yacht club style to a little urban with big watches and leather jackets. Its impossible to not find at least one outfit that can fit your style. I chose a more urban look to recreate for less because it features two must haves for this fall, the bomber jacket and distressed jeans. Check out the Lord below
What’s a guy to do when its 100 degrees out and needs to step it up a notch; throw on a button down! You can wear swim shorts, put on a simple button and be set to go for a night on the board walk. It’s best to invest because they don’t go out of style and can literally be worn year round. Below are some easy ways to spruce up your summer basics and some must have button ups for now and later.
If you want a button down that can be worn with any pants your best bet is white or chambray. If you pair the white with denim you’ll have a stylish fool proof look and the chambray will immediately give all your bottoms a preppy feel. Bonus points if layered over a perfectly worn in graphic tee.
Plaid/flannels are back with a vengeance! Wear in place of a sweater on cool nights and brighten them up during the day by pairing them with white shorts, or gray and blue bottoms for a fresh spin on the 90′s classic.
Prints are fun but a tad bit harder to wear during cooler weather. Look for small prints that can be worn solo or with a tee now and then under a sweater later.
With January fast approaching, you’d better make sure your wardrobe’s well-equipped to handle the cold weather – and preferably in style. Let’s take a look at what’s in this winter:
Grey on grey
A velvet blazer helps ramp up the style and sophistication of any outfit, as Ron Burgundy knows all too well. Seriously, though, this is a great embellishment for those who want to make a bigger impact – and if you don’t want to go all the way with it, a velvet tie or bow tie gives you a pop of the trend without going overboard.
Military-style coats are as popular as they’ve ever been – from parkas to trench and duffel coats, they look fantastic and do a good job of keeping you toasty, too. Take a look at
Another strong trend this year is wrapping up like you’re off to Antarctica for a few months, rather than nipping to the corner shop for a packet of crisps. As
Christmas jumpers are all well and good, but if you really want to hop on board the knitwear train, make it stripey. Pair a striped jumper with ripped jeans and a leather jacket for a grungey outfit that’s as warm as it is trendy, or go with some cosy corduroy trousers for a cuddlier look.
Spring brings with it the chance to shed those winter coats and show off jumpers and T-shirts with plenty of colour – and there’s really no better way to do it than with stripes. Block colour has its place, but it’s so easy to overdo it with the brighter tones. Stripes allow you to splash in some colour while still looking understated – and they can also help your physique too.
Horizontal or vertical?
Ladies have much more choice when it comes to horizontal or vertical stripes; men’s stripey options are most of the time horizontal – probably because it’s so hard for a man to wear vertical stripes and not have it look at first glance like a football shirt. Horizontal stripes do have their uses though; men with thin frames will look wider with a horizontal stripe.
Thick or thin?
Bigger stripes tend to make a bolder statement than thinner ones, while ultra-fine ones will prevent those with a broader frame from looking too wide. Mixing fine and thick stripes is not often seen because it’s a difficult one to get right – mix in colour and it usually looks too busy, but when done well it can be an interesting look.
The top designers love stripes, and most have a range throwing together dark blues and whites or creams for a nautical look. It’s popular every spring and summer and that never looks like changing! Black and white as a combination is similarly timeless, but don’t be afraid of mixing colours; Original Penguin’s range shows that by offsetting the body stripes with block colour on the arms, or by using stripes only on the top half of a T-shirt, you can get away with combining some brighter colours -more than two, even – without being too flashy.
This greatly-anticipated spring/summer season brings with it a surprise: the reinvention of men’s tailoring into something that is not only suitable for wear on warm sunny days, but something that can be as practical as it is stylish. No sign of tatty flip-flops and ill-advised vests here!
The Full Suit
Ok, so you’re not going to be reaching for that full black or navy number in the summer’s heat, but as Louis Vuitton recently proved with their spring/summer 2013 collection, a checked suit in the right blend of lighter shades can make for a smart but easy to pull off look that won’t leave you looking out of place in the city or strolling through seaside streets.
The secret to the success of the French fashion house’s sublimely tailored collection lies in the accessories: shades are a given but the model also wore neckskarves tied subtly underneath the open collar of shirts and wore watches that were large enough to command attention, yet sturdy enough to say ‘this is daywear, not occasionwear’.
The Smart Shirt
The perfect item for summer: it’s lightweight but offers coverage against the sun and is available in all the shades you could want to complete any look, from every summer’s favourite – nautical, to the trend that divides men each time it appears – pastel shades. For an idea of the sheer multiplicity of shirts available out there, take a look at the offerings from Hackett; you’ll soon be pairing a smart shirt with tailored shorts or lightly coloured chinos for a daytime look that gives your style everything it needs for summer.
The Summer Savvy Shoes
Boat shoes (also known as deck shoes or loafers) are the stylish man’s best friend for the spring/summer season. They’ll work perfectly with the tailoring that we hope will now define your look, be that shorts or trousers, and since they come in such a range of colours, they’re the ideal way to add an extra splash of personality to your look.
Cooler weather is right around the corner and by adding a few key pieces to your summer shorts now, you can keep them out later on. The idea is to pick pieces that you’ll get tons of use and are stylish enough to mix and match later on with jeans, cordoroys or slacks. Pair them with a pair of boots, oxfords or sneaks and you’re good to go! Check out some examples below
Now: If you prefer simple functional basics try a light weight jacket like the ones by Penfield over at Size? with just about any of your summer favorites. Later: Add a stylish scarf, a hoodie and a button down… guaranteed style and it’s layering heaven!
Now: For cooler nights try a preppy sweater (it’s a classic and stylish piece for any season), shorts and slip ons. Later: Pull out your cordoroys and favorite summer slip ons to wear with your sweater for a effortless laid back look.
Now: Pair your shorts with your favorite tee and a button a down. Later: Add a a vest for some stylish layering and ditch the shorts for your favorite jeans
Kellan’s double denim look is the perfect blend of cool and casual. It definitely epitomizes the laid back Cali style captured by his personal line of Abbott and Main. Get Kellan’s look for less with pieces from American Eagle, Swell & more!
Love a man with a stylish backpack… it gives any outfit an old school (somewhat chic/geeky) street vibe that’s so sexy! Tip: Don’t go cheap on backpacks. They are always handy and if you choose the right one, it’ll look even better with a little wear and tear. When it comes to style points, consider this: Pair it with a hoodie and slacks for an old school touch; blazers and a scarf to class it up; or a pull over, button down and baggy jeans for a smart look. Check out some of my faves below and let me know your thoughts on backpacks.
I’m prepared that a lot of you out there will think Brad Pitt’s outfit is a hot mess; but I can’t help myself. I love it! For reasons I can’t quite articulate, the khakis/sweater combo gives off this sexy Mr. Rogers look that just…works for me. And yes, I even think the dirty, tussled hair adds to the whole vibe. So if you’re in the mood to get down and dirty with your inner nerdy, try Brad’s look for less with pieces from Hanes, Karmaloop, Kohls and more!
