Since Christmas is around the corner I’ve been feeling super festive. (Especially after watching this!) So on this pretty mellow Friday afternoon I decided to model an outfit around an Xmas staple, The Nutcracker.
For creepy looking figurines that are made out of wood, they are pretty darn dapper.
Most of the world stood still as the prince and princess got married this morning. I was not one of those many people because I don’t get enough sleep as is. The wedding did however inspire this edition of Mister Trends.
The inspiration comes from both the royal men at the men and the Fall 2011 collection of the Alexander McQueen label.
This look is not that hard to achieve since military is a trend that is always somehow weaved into menswear. (Everyone love a man in uniform right?) As far as the outfit it is most a few key piece and perhaps a few props just to add a little pomp and circumstance.
Military styled jackets are usually in every designer’s mens coats but this Balmain double-breasted blazer is a great one and even come with its own emblem attached.A simple shoe is best when dealing with high-class affairs and Gucci does it right with this classic lace up.
Feel free to be a little costume-y when it comes down to accessories. Royalty has no problem wearing their traditional garments out and about even though to many they look a bit ridiculous. This is why you can buy a chauffeur’s hat and act like it was handed down to you for generation. And for the watch bling it’s all about Glam Rock.
If you hadn’t noticed all the store displays, abundance of candy, and students being out of school then you might not know that Easter is happening this Sunday. For some it may mean going to church for the first time this year, having a eater egg hunt with family & friends, or just going out for a nice brunch to enjoy another Sunday. This post is focusing on church wear. Continue reading →
For this edition of MISTER TRENDS I am covering floral print for men this season. The inspiration for this trend comes from D&G’s S/S 2011 collection. Many men might see a floral print and thin of a very feminine summer dress but the tables have turned and now guys and have some flower power in their closets.
For starters a floral shirt can be done right if done subtle. For instance this PS by Paul Smith shirt is absolutely beautiful but can be worn under any basic sweater or blazer as the pop.
Speaking of sweater this basic black one from Topman with a little floral detail around the neck is perfect for those in between days that Spring can offer.
If you want to go for a bolder look than the bright yellow floral pants that photographer Scott Schuman caught this man in can probably work for you.
Now your accessories can be as bold as can be. Since they are smaller you can wear any basic outfit and throw these floral Ray-Bans on for cool look that is still on trend. I think Dr. Marten shoes are extremely masculine was pleasantly surprised that they offered a whole floral collection for this season and even a few more for fall.
This is a great trend, but make sure not to over kill or you’ll look like you’ve been trapped in a bad flower garden.
