Wear To Work

Redefining Business Casual

When it comes to dressing for work, the lines between business and casual are sometimes unclear. Nowadays, office appropriate attire doesn’t necessarily have to mean a suit and tie. My office tends to have a really relaxed dress code. Most days I wear jeans and a t-shirt to work but that’s just the nature of my office environment. For this work-inspired outfit I chose to dress down a tailored blazer the way I would wear it to my office. Sneakers, a snapback, and some slim pants are a great way to achieve a relaxed office look. 

This Thursday September 18th, I’m inviting you to attend the EXPRESS x GQ #Back2Business event at the EXPRESS Times Square store, located at 46th & Broadway at 6pm. GQ’s executive stylist Brett Fahlgreen will be there along with other special guests to answer all your “wear to work” styling questions. All purchases made during the event will receive a special 25% off discount so come with your friends and hang out with me while we shop and enjoy some whiskey and light bites! More info about the event can be found in the flyer below. Be sure to RSVP and hope to see some of you guys later this week!

Hulking In A No Flex Zone

Because New York Fashion Week

Okay, okay, so NYFW is not necessarily a no flex zone. Matter of fact, everyone probably tries harder to stunt when they dress for the shows. That said, I chose to wear this bright green (Incredible Hulk vibes, yeah?) printed shirt to stand apart from the crowd. Mission accomplished, I guess.

Is Street Style Dead?

A Case For Color Over All Black Everything

Someone recently posed this question to me: Is street style dead? They then went on to explain that the all-black everything crews are killing it (but not necessarily in the good way) and making street style, well, boring. My answer - how’s this for color? I’m certainly not afraid of wearing colors or prints and I think with this outfit that’s pretty clear.

The New Wave In Denim

Introducing G-Star’s Raw For The Oceans Collection

Amidst the craziness of fashion week, I got to attend a very special event presented by G-Star this past Friday in NYC. The event was hosted by none other than fashion trendsetter Pharrell Williams who helped to unveil G-Star’s newest line called Raw For The Oceans (RFTO) which is a collection curated by Pharrell himself. What’s special about this latest endeavor by G-Star is that all the denim in this line is woven from Bionic Yarn, a thread made from recycled plastic bottles. After getting the chance to try on some pieces from the RFTO collection I was surprised to know that the fabric I was wearing was made from this Bionic Yarn because it looked and felt just like normal denim. I really think that this whole project is going to be the next big thing in sustainable fashion. By turning our waste into something useable and fashionable G-Star is helping to save our oceans and reduce pollution. The collection even features it’s own mascot, Otto the octopus, which you’ll notice in some of the prints and graphics on the clothing, including the bomber jacket I’m wearing here. You can check out the new Raw For The Oceans collection and learn more about it on G-Star’s newly launched tumblr site here. I definitely think you’ll like it as much as I do!
