Neon Summer

Yep, We’re Still Talking Brights This Summer

Fluorescents are back and looking oh-so-stylish this season. I love the bold neon colors in this Hawaiian shirt and the mirrored blue lenses in these classic wayfarers for a look that’s distinctively 80s. And what goes better with neon than some acid wash jeans right? It’s a totally 80s look that will totally turn heads. Why not try it out yourself for a festive occasion like a summer party or even the 4th of July? For more summer trend inspiration be sure to check out Zappos for all your sartorial shopping needs.

Looking Fall, Feeling Summer

Do You Really Have To Match Your Colors To The Season?

The thing about the fashion industry is that you’re always a season ahead. With previews for next season and even next year going on it’s hard to stay focused on what’s actually happening right now. Maybe that’s why I’ve been missing fall colors lately. I chose to wear this gray and burgundy colored outfit on a recent beach trip and couldn’t help but wonder, is it it really important to match your colors to the season? It makes sense that warmer hues like pumpkin, burgundy, gray and navy should be worn during the fall/winter but that doesn’t mean we can’t incorporate them into our outfits throughout the year. Details like a floral print or a contrast pocket in a light color are a great way to make a “fall” color feel more appropriate for the summer months. So go ahead and where whatever shade you want, whenever you want, but if you live in New York City you already know that because all black is basically the year-round uniform.

Who Needs A Six Pack When You Can Have Custom Swimming Trunks

Beach season is in full effect so let em know what time it is. You’ve been hitting the gym and crash dieting for that beach trip but the only thing missing is that perfect bathing suit to show off your summer bod. Where do you even begin? Well there’s board shorts if you’re the surfer type. There’s florals and prints if you’re a pattern prince. But allow me to make a suggestion. Why not go full-on fancy and get some custom swim trunks. Back in February I customized a pair of Orlebar Brown trunks to wear this summer. I opted for the short shorts because better tan lines and then chose my color, monogram, threading, and hardware. If you’re looking to stand out from the crowd then definitely peep the site and consider creating your own pair of custom swimming trunks. You may not have that six pack yet but you’ll definitely be the only guy flexing your custom swim suit style.

The World Cup, Ever Heard Of It?

Apparently It Involves Hot Guys So Pay Attention

Every four years teams of hot guys get together to play soccer, or football, or futbol, or European soccer, or like whatever. All you need to know is that there are hot guys playing with balls and it’s an excuse to get day drunk and form a camaraderie with literally anyone at any bar (single ladies take note) - so basically what’s not to like? This year the World Cup is being held in Brazil and as a dutiful personal style blogger I felt it appropriate to give you some “World Cup”-inspired dressing inspo. I mean you could a) rep your team by buying a jersey or wearing their colors or b) just buy a cute tank with Brazil emblazoned on it if you’re like me and have no loyalty to any team besides the fact that you will root for the team with the sexiest players. Obviously I went with option b because why be picky? Keeping with the World Cup theme, here’s pictures of me being “sporty.” Football, surfing, scootering, and cheap beer - I’m doing great at capturing the team spirit in this post right?? Whatevs, I may not know the first thing about soccer but I do know I’ll be keepin it super cute in my soccer inspired ensemble. How are you guys celebrating the World Cup this year? Drunk? Yeah, that’s what I thought. Cheers!
