5 Fashion Must-Haves For MEN Wanting To Relive The 1940s

When watching motion pictures from the 1930s and 1940s, it always appeared that everyone, whether it was the starring cast or extras, were always well-dressed. The women were regularly wearing dresses or skirts, while the men were usually sporting suits. All of this at home, too! James Cagney, Humphrey Bogart, Cary Grant and Edward G. Robinson were just some of the actors that defined this generation. In nearly every film, they were always dressed very well. However, for the fashion of this forgotten time, it was the little things that contributed to the wardrobe. These nuances accentuated the style of these men’s wardrobes. Since the fashion of the 1930s, 1940s and even 1950s are trying to be replicated on the modelling runways and magazines today, men may want to add a few tidbits to fully complement their vintage clothing. Be warned, though, it may garner…

Men: What To Wear To New Year’s Eve Party?

I’m either a workaholic with a fashion-obsession-tendency or I’ve missed home and work a little bit too much, but frankly I couldn’t wait to get back to my writing. Another thing I did this past week was spend A LOT of time thinking about New Year’s Eve party outfits. The outcome? More ideas without any actual picked outfit yet, AND one more question to wonder about: DO MEN GO THROUGH THE SAME FASHION OUTFITS ORDEAL FOR NYE PARTY? And if so… why shouldn’t we be the ones to give ’em a hand you know. Okay, the last thing I’ll ever be is a men’s stylist, BUUUT I know a good looking man when I see one. And, as much as I’d like to say appearance counts less, well… my dearest boys, STYLE, let’s read that again, STYLE, is one motherfucker you have to own. Or…

5 Things GAME OF THRONES Has Taught Men & Women About Fashion

When my girl friends started wearing their hair in braids and endless flowy waves, and my guy friends were stealing my rings, cause you know they had to have a coat of arms themselves – it hit me. Not only are we obsessed with Game of Thrones and its phenomenon, to the point of using phrases that bare tons of meaning for GOT-addicts (errr… ‘Valar Morghulis’ for when you think you’re cool, or ‘Hodor’ for when you’re testing the funny-power of just 1 word, or for when you’d rather say less than more), but also we’re unconsciously borrowing from its style, trends and sartorial choices. Does that mean all men will look photoshoped? Steamy rugged, with a code of honor as well as coat of arms? And women will rule the world, tame dragons and look like ancient sexy beautiful Goddesses doing so? Doh. What this…

MEN: Must-Have Accessories For Summer

Assuming y’all have beards, tattoos, and a major case of sex appeal, you’re only left with one summer massive trend to check off your fashion lists: BROWN ACCESSORIES. From sunglasses, to belts, to bags, backpacks, shoes, bracelets, hats and whatnot – as long as they’re 50 shades of brown, you’re one big mother fucker. Fashion & style wise. When it comes to this summer, MENSWEAR screams one style – VINTAGE with a twist – hence the brown shades and style accents to whatever look or outfit you have. So, how come brown is the new black? And when did our beautiful lads decide to ditch their black shades and rocknroll attire, for a more bohemian approach to fashion? The heat. For one. And the versatility of any nude, sand, light or dark brown accessory. And really kudos to you all, for coming up with this…

MEN: What To Wear This Summer?

What better way to start off a week than talking about and staring at men, with the ever-present and oh-so-real fashion pretext. Okay so we might be winning both ways here, like getting some eye candy (hello!), but also (and really kinda more importante) showing you, the beloved boys in our lives, 8 TIPS for what to wear in 2014 summer. To avoid looking plain, you know. Not that you’d even come close to this predicament but anyway. Pissed off and tired of seeing men and boys wearing the same shit every summer, with an inherent cockiness as if they’re David fucking Gandy, in the name off all women, and those boys who do know what to wear – this post was born. Seriously, tight clothes are for tight looking people. Brainless colors are well, for… you guessed it, brainless people, unless you know how to do…

Do All Women Like Men With Beards?

Oh it’s that time again. The time for us girls to look and talk about men, on one of the most discussed and flaunted men topics in the past years: FACIAL HAIR. Its power to transform any young lad into the next hipster/masculine hunk/caveman is undeniable, and all one has to do is just get sloppy with his hygienic routine. Ouch. Well… the truth is, there’s something fucking irresistible about a guy who’s too lazy to shave off and decides to wear a 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 hell a 10 days stubble and pull it off. By the time he decides to go back to the Don Draper clean shaved face, it strikes him: women have been eye-balling and flirting with him like crazy in the past days, he’s been going on dates as if he’s George freaking Clooney (btw he too has a…

Men-Inspired Looks For Ladies: OXFORDS! YES Or NO?

Aside from all the sartorial implications that come with 2013 (and the year prior and after it most likely) as being a borrowed-from-the-boys-looks phase in fashion, this post makes me think of 2 things. (a question and a personal statement). note: scroll down if not in the mood for blogger-ramblings 🙂  (1). I can’t help but wonder – as I jump to a more philosophical approach and question triggered by all the men’s fashion talk I’ve recently had – In 2013, is it still a man’s world? This once-so-true-phrase seems to have a tangent with today’s topic, only in regards to the word use, cause any associations and acquiescence to fashion is kinda irrelevant and actually quite inappropriate. Let’s face it: the world of fashion is dominated by women. Yet I can’t shake this question off. Do we, as women always feel the need to…

Stuff MEN Should Wear This Winter!

Boys… it’s been a long time since we’ve talked about you. Here, that is. 🙂 When it comes to 2013 – 2014 Autumn & Winter there are a few things men have got to do, fashion wise: boots, coats & layers. Basically nothing’s new and it’s no rocket science that in the cold season human nature requires you to wear thicker clothes such as the ones above. Yet… it’s not what you wear, but HOW you wear it that counts. All men are fashion wise somewhere in between a business-casual-cool style. What this season does though, is challenge men to be edgier, to experiment more with fashion & looks, and not be boring. How to do this? Focus on some details: funky socks, rolled up jeans, trousers in boots, printed scarves, hats/beanies, a few bling (earrings, rings, necklaces. Keep it simple boys!), and layering jackets. For…

Ladies, Let’s Talk Men…

… fashion. What else did you think? Well… can’t blame you for that one, and truth be told any excuse is a good excuse to chat about men. Looks. Styles. Who’s HOT/NOT et all. Besides, a little eye candy never hurt anyone, right? The true story behind this post (apart from the implied cheekiness) is the hints I got from my guy friends to write something related to their fashion, and how to dress to a look or style. Yeah go figure. Plus, the shopping trips I was dragged on, playing stylist/personal shopper in a field that’s not really right down my street – ha! a desperate fashion attention from the men in my life. Who would’ve thought. Them, interested in style? And I, as their turn-to-fashion-guide? Seriously now. Give me women’s fashion and I’ll take it. Men? WTF. Well turns out at the end…
