Denim Days

I’ve always been a fan of denim and lately I seem to be digging it a lot.  Working in a creative field allows for the dress code to be a bit more relaxed.  Whether I’m in a rush or not feeling my best, I tend to count on the most comfortable denim in my wardrobe to get me through the day.  Among my go-to slacks and shirts, I’m looking forward to rocking my favorite denim jackets this season.  A blast from the past, the runways were full of them replacing the basic blazer.

Camo Flock

Camo commanded its presence on the runways for fall.  Designers flocked to this particular print giving their take on the masking motif.  I particularly prefer something more authentic when it comes to this type of pattern, but couldn’t resist purchasing this button-down from J-Crew.  It looked so real and for the price I couldn’t pass it up.  Anywho, when it comes to wearing anything military-inspired, I’m not a fan of dressing  full on.  I suggest focusing on one piece like a jacket, shirt or trousers.  Then mix it up with other trends from the season.  Keeps it a bit unexpected if you ask me!

#Fashion4good: 7FAM X Movember

We’re already almost a week into the Movember movement and it seems like everyone from celebrities, to athletes, to even TV news anchors are getting in on the month-long mustache growing global charity event.  More importantly, I recently read via the LA Times, that LA-based premium denim brand 7 For All Mankind has partnered with Movember USA in creating a limited-edition collection with the famous moustache logo printed on the inner waistband and pocket.  The best part!?  For each pair sold, they’re donating $20 to Movember’s efforts in raising awareness for men’s health issues.  Now that’s denim you can wear with pride!  The collection is being sold online and select retailers.  A huge hairy #Fashion4good shout-out to the boys over at 7FAM growing out their staches again this year.

P.S.-Please don’t forget to donate directly to my fundraiser in honor of someone you know has suffered or is currently suffering.  If I’ve reach out to you personally, I’m going to be stalking you until you GIVE generously.

Trend Alert: Extended Stay

Rules are meant to be broken and in fashion it happens all the time. One that is under constant scrutiny is the dilemma of wearing white after Labor day.  A favorite of mine to ignore, it’s now getting its long overdue stamp of approval on the runways.  With more and more designers extending this summer favorite into their F/W collections, it looks as if white isn’t cutting its unexpected trip anytime soon.

Fall Color Trend: NY STYLE MUSTARD

Last February in New York, designers showcased a variety of colors on the runway for fall.  A front-runner, mustard was a favorite for many.  I’m very happy to be seeing the streets smeared with it this season. When it comes to wearing it, unfortunately, it’s not like black and can be overindulged head-to-toe.  To avoid looking too tangy, it’s best to pair with neutral tones like black, gray and brown.  To really stand out, marinate your look with a bold pattern.

Fall Staple: Into the trenches

Now that the weather has started to take on a whole new feeling, outerwear will begin to play a role in our wardrobe choices.  One of my all-time favorites for fall is a trench coat.  An essential, its classic structure makes it one of the most versatile jackets on the market today.  By tradition, this cool-weather staple is one that will last you a lifetime.

Exclusive Look: Henley Away this Fall

When it comes to Fall, I live in a Henley!  It’s such a great transitional piece and works with just about any look.  Although for some, the idea of a henley being worn at the office or to an event is just out of the question.  Think again!  I’m showing you how to wear this fun Fall staple piece in my first editorial for Stylesource titled Henley Away.

When Denim and Motorcycles Procreate

Last Friday, I was invited to an event in Brooklyn, Williamsburg to be exact, which happened to be a collaboration between  PRPS Goods & Co., a well known fashion brand most notably known for their denim, and The Selvedge Yard, a hugely popular blog focusing on menswear product.  We were there to celebrate the birth of The Blackbird Jean, which was inspired by the 1953 Triumph Blackbird (they even had one at the event).   I had a great time mingling with friends, and had the pleasure of meeting Donwan Harrell, the designer of the famous PRPS denim that some people can’t seem to get enough of.  Take a look at some great snapshots I captured from the night!

An actual 1953 Triumph Blackbird!

I loved this photo!

The black hardware and Thunderbird inspired stitching on the back pocket pay homage to the iconic motorcycle.
