Listening to Mario "Music for Love"
Today's blog is about MEN and FASHION. I'm not talking about what's in the magazine, or what's sitting in Gucci's store. I am talking about the everyday guy. The one who's not a skater, a nerd, or a prep. The one who's working a 9-5 job, and/or the one still in school, and the one that just wants to look fashionable, without trying so hard. To add a little edge, trend, and easy to wear styles to your closet, check out the photos below.
Two stores i recommend to complete these looks: H&M and Heritage 1981. Both affordable, and either one or the other are available in most decent size cities. H&M is one of the head chain stores that are up to date on fashion and at the most affordable prices, starting at $5.99 fitted tees and up. Heritage1981 has it's own little style that i'm not to fond of, but they do have pieces here and there that will fit the criteria. Just pick up a couple of basics and you'll be able to start dressing more fashionable, without knowing much about fashion. You're sure to get heads turning, without even trying.
Styling men has been a passion of mine, since the time i could afford a boyfriend. I have changed many of them from fashion poopers to fashion metro-sexuals. And i pat my back every time, wither i end up with them or not. I got to do something i loved, and that was to help style men. Luckily i was able to fit into most of their accessories, tees, and button-ups. My closet has always consisted of quite a few men's fashion. While finding pieces to add to www.moddame.com, I did a little styling to help you guys out. More to come in later blogs.
Some MUST HAVE in your closet:
1) A PU Leather or Leather Jacket.
This jacket was available for order through my site but sold out. It's $120 PU Leather if you want to pre-order one with me.
These thermals are perfect for this weather. These are available at: www.moddame.com in distressed olive and light blue as photographed below @ $15.00 each.
2.) Boots are a must-have in your closet. Slim down your pants from straight legs. Buy slim or skinny jeans. Alex is wearing slim jeans from H&M. Boots from Aldo's. Beanie from H&M.
Stripes are always good to have in the closet. This one is slim fitted and long sleeved. Has a unique zipper added on one side and is perfect for this weather and this shade of blue is one of 2012's trend colors. The shirts are available for $16.00 on my site www.moddame.com. To avoid the overdue prep look of stripes, pair the stripes with light colored sweaters, jackets, cardigans as shown below. Wear dark jeans or cargo pants (slimmed).
3.) The Cardigan
Get them in all neutral or bright colors, this is the "new hoodie" piece for men. They go with anything and everything. Get them in heavy knit or thin and get them over sized or fitted, depending on your own personal liking.
Get this slim fitted tee $10.00 on my site: www.moddame.com. Has a great fit and the graphic is neutral colored and distressed. Grey is one of the most wearable colors.
Here's a cardigan over your basic v-tee. It turns the basic tee into a casual get-up that is ready for a date, or night out with the ladies.
This v-tee is made to be worn lose. Men's growing trend is a lose shirt and fitted (skinny or slim) jeans. Get this shirt on my site: www.moddame.com.
Probably back in the days and in certain neighborhoods today, this blue collar shirt would look like a gangster's fashion. Today, pair it with the right pieces and buy it in the right fit, you'll be styling in fashion. Fabricated with thin stripes and a button trims, it's totally cute and up to date. This unique black stripe at front is very popular and makes this shirt a piece to buy. Only one available $20.00 on my site www.moddame.com. It's worn here with a leather jacket.
