This is a sleek jeans and tee look and it can be worn for day or night! Tip: if you want to wear this from day to night, accessorize it with a nice watch, a scarf and or a blazer.

Three Ways To Style A Sports Coat

A sharp sports coat can be like an artists canvas in many ways but a lot of times I notice that most men wear them in their typical ways; with a button up and slacks or a white shirt and jeans and if the occasion needs it a tie. All perfectly acceptable ways of wearing a sports jacket but very basic and in a way boring. A mans sports jacket can actually be really dressed up, down, and even made to look quirky and fun. There are tons of ways to rock a sports jacket. Below I picked 3 sports jacket and styled them three very different ways.

As I begin to make my way into the work force I find myself wanting to look more sharp and presentable but not over dressed because I do live in florida. So lately I’ve been trying my hand at t-shirts and trousers with either Sperry’s or slip-on loafers. It’s a simple look that doesn’t really take much to put together and it’s easy for me to layer up when it finally does get cool. Below are some pieces and inspiration for this simple yet professional look.

T-Shirt & Trousers

For this look try these: herring bone trousers , penny loafers , white tee

t-shirt and trousers

For this look try these: khaki’s , pullover, belt

t-shirt and trousers

For this look try these out: oxfords, trousers

Scott Disick’s Look for Less!

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 ;)

Bomber Jacket | Noble Denim T-Shirt | DSQUARED2 Gray Wash Jeans | Sneakers

New Ways To Wear A Button Down

July 29, 2014 by

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.

Mens Summer Outfits

Muscle Shirt | Chambray Button Up | Reigning Shorts  | G-Shock Watch | Flip Flops

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.

Flannels

Plaid Marc Jacobs Shirt | Plaid Ralph Lauren Shirt

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.

Mens Stylish Outfits

Billy Reid Button Down | Shorts | Slip-Ons | Sunglasses

Mens Fall Outfits

Billy Reid Button Down | J Crew Cardigan | Chinos | Brown Belt | n.d.c. Brown Oxford

Make Style A Breeze In The New Year

December 19, 2013 by  
Filed under Boys on the Side

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

According to GQ, going grey from top to toe is one of this season’s biggest trends, thanks to designers like Neil Barrett and Viktor & Rolf. You don’t need 50 shades of grey to pull it off, either – a dark charcoal suit with matching tie, coupled with a lighter smoke-grey shirt, is all you need to look the business.

 Velvet

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 coats

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 Jacamo’s winter range this year to get some inspiration. You can wear a puffer gilet underneath to keep you warm when winter really starts to bite.

The explorer

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 Fashionbeans notes, this look comprises lug-sole boots, fur-lined hooded overcoats and accessories like beanies and thick socks. Choose primary colours as much as possible (they make you easier to see in the snow).

Stripey knitwear

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.

Men’s Fashion: Celebrate Spring With Stripes!

April 4, 2013 by  
Filed under Boys on the Side

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.

Colours

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.
