This time of the year is peak for prints, patterns, and pops of color. No matter the season, it’s important to still have a grasp of your neutrals. While it might be cool to wear black 365 in major metropolitan cities, the black and gray scheme doesn’t have to be the minimalists go to. Check out the other end of the spectrum and try off-whites and work your way to browns. These are typically easier to find in light fabrics so you don’t have to melt while doing your stunts and shows. This happens to also be one of my favorite tee shirts because it’s linen and has a good shape. Speaking of which, cut and silhouette are crazy important in lighter clothes because they don’t fit everyone one the same way. (Take it from the guy who can’t find a long line shirt to fit a short torso’d frame to save his life.)
The longline silhouette has been trending for a while now and I’m starting to see more and more mainstream designers and stores pick it up. Longline can be a VERY slippery slope if you don’t know what you’re doing. Because I do the most, I opted for a more severe cut. As a person on the shorter side, a piece like this can easily look like a body con dress from American Apparel. (Hence why I stay away from tees that are the same length.) Knowing your proportions are crucial. If you’re not blessed with a frail model physique, you’ll have to pay attention to wear the shirts fall and also the type of pant you’ll pair it with. As a member of the under 5’9 committee (people always tell me I look shorter in person so FYI) I went with these slightly cropped trousers to show I have legs. Have a little fun an experiment this summer, but let’s not get too crazy, eh?
The rainy season might be the only thing worse than the brick winter. Before you call me out on this one, I’d rather take being cold and wrapped up in a million layers over being wet and having to save my good fits for another day. A dope jacket can be the beacon of hope during the bleak time. Take a look above at some of my faves from East Dane.
As much as I love my fair city, I haven’t left the tri-state area in over 6 months and daddy needed a vacation before my frustration manifested itself into me attacking someone on the L train. Since I don’t need another assault charge on my record and plane tickets are way less than lawyer and court fees, I hopped on the chance take a lovely vacay in the Domincan Republic. This isn’t a style lesson per se but I merely wanted to share some of the beautiful landscapes and stunt in some S/S 15 gear.
