November 30th, 2016 by Julius Adorsu A Gentleman’s Suit: Tips with Julius Adorsu

It has been said that suits make people feel powerful and confident. Think about when someone walks into a room wearing a suit—everyone stops to take a look. It’s hard to resist. I’m here to give a few style pointers to make sure you light up every room you’re in when you’re wearing a suit.

Dress Shoes

When it comes to a gentleman’s suit, shoes are one of the first things people will look at. It’s absolutely essential to have a good rotation of dress shoes. Choose timeless styles like double monk straps, wingtips, and oxfords. Pick colors that can go with most attire, like light browns and darker tones.

 

Lapel Pins

Lapel pins are a simple, underrated accessory that can easily make you stand out from the crowd. They’re a great way to complement an outfit and add some spark to your suit jacket or coat.

 

Ties

Ties are a great way to convey your personality. When choosing a tie, the width of the tie should match the size of the lapel on the suit jacket or blazer. Slim-fit suits usually have smaller lapels that skinny ties pair well with.

Last but not least, confidence is key! It’s the most inexpensive part of your outfit, yet also the most difficult to attain since it cannot be bought. However you choose to wear your suit, believe in your style and wear the clothes instead of letting the clothes wear you.

June 21st, 2016 by Jennifer Beile Round Up: How to Make a Summer Fashion Statement

We all know that with rising temperatures, wearing multiple layers and heavy fabrics gets pretty uncomfortable. Spending the summer in light, breezy and easy pieces will keep you comfortable, but they may not be as fun to wear as you want them to be. Adding pieces with statement features or wearing statement accessories will help you stay stylish and keep cool in the hottest heat.

Here are my favorite ways to them into your outfit this summer!

April 15th, 2016 by Samantha Weaver One Simple Trick to Upgrade Your Jackets

This versatile trend is showing up all over denim and leather jackets, but we also love it on everything from your preppiest sweater to your grungiest backpack.

Yep—pins are cool again. In fact, they’re the microtrend of the moment. Try adding colorful pins to your bare lapel because 1) this trend is unisex, and 2) it’s super easy (any pin will do).

The more outrageous the better! Pin adornment is our pick for a fun and easy way to upgrade any jacket this spring.

Remember: if you’re pinning, you’re winning!

October 13th, 2015 by Jennifer Beile Round Up: Scarf Trends for 2015

My favorite accessory for cold weather is a scarf; they can add edginess to your outfit while keeping you warm in those fall and winter temperatures. From the resurgence of the silk neck scarf to the ongoing love for a huge chunky knit (which practically becomes a second skin during those long, painfully cold winter days!), I’ve rounded up some of my favorite ways to incorporate top scarf trends into your cold weather wardrobes.

Statements are in this season! My style is typically simple, especially during the summer heat when I only want to be comfortable, and I love how a statement accessory can elevate a minimalist outfit. Take a look at a few of my favorite types of statement accessories that you should be rocking this summer season!

The “It” Bag
