Enjoy a Cold, Sunny Day in Style

Standard

The best days in winter are the days where you get the cold breeze and the sun is out. This weather lets you enjoy the opportunity to step outside and enjoy winter, and not having to worry about wearing layers of coats and/or sweaters.

This Sunday I got to enjoy some time out at the local Japanese Tea Garden here in San Antonio, TX. For the day I wore a sweater and button up shirt combination. My mustard color wool sweater from DKNY kept me warm and let me stand out. On a cold sunny day I find it acceptable to wear some bright colors to go with the mood. I’m an advocate for dark colors for fall and winter, but on a sunny day mix it up.

To compliment my sweater, I wore some funky orange socks from J. Crew and a pair of tan dress shoes from Aldo. For winter I suggest investing in some funky patterned or print socks, you can find them at almost every store nowadays. I’m sure that you can find one to fit your personality or the occasion.

As for the shoes, winter is the perfect time to not only wear leather boots, but to wear some nice dress shoes for a casual time out. Now I’m not saying to bust out your best work shoes, but invest in a nice affordable pair that you can wear during the day or even for a night out. Aldo is a brand that has nice shoes with prices that won’t break the bank.

On the next cold, sunny day, try adding a bright color sweater to your work or casual attire.

Spring Into The Workplace

For the working man that’s in the office 9 to 5, there isn’t a big change in the wardrobe for Spring. Sure you lose the long pea coat, gloves, and scarf, but you still have to look presentable. Well here are some tips on how to Spring into the workplace in style.

Spring means warmer days, so switch the nice tailored dress shirt for a sports shirt. A sports shirt comes in a variety of fabrics: linen, chambray, oxford, or denim. The plus side on wearing one of these is that they aren’t perfectly tailored to your body, so you won’t feel uncomfortable in the heat. DKNY offers sports shirts in a variety of fabric and prints for their Spring collection.

Instead of topping off your sports shirt with a blazer, go with a lightweight linen sweater. Banana Republic has a variety of sweaters that can help dress up your sports shirt.

Most of us can’t get away with using shorts in the workplace, so what’s an alternative to dress pants? One word, chinos! Chinos are lightweight and made of twill fabric that are perfect for the warmer days. Topman offers a variety of colors, giving you more options for your wardrobe.

Finally, when it comes to the oxfords, monks, or cap toes you used for Fall and Winter they can usually transition into your Spring wardrobe. Instead of pairing them with long dress socks, lose them, roll up your chinos, and show some ankle.

If you haven’t added any Spring-worthy pieces to your wardrobe, be sure to check out the links I provided. Remember, it’s okay to add prints and patterns to your wardrobe, it is Spring after all.

Flashback Friday

Standard

FullSizeRender-6This winter has been pretty crazy, and with the groundhog having seen its shadow, looks like it will be cold a little while longer. I figured I’d do a Flashback Friday to sunnier days!

This was a picture from spring two years ago, I wore a DKNY button up, Zara man cuffed chinos, and made it casual with some Supra shoes. Here is hoping that come Spring Break, we will have sunny days to enjoy at the beach, lake, or a water park.

Until next time, stay class mi amigos!

 

The Tie Bar!

Standard

Aside from shoes, skinny ties are my other guilty pleasure. Skinny ties have become a staple in men’s fashion for quite some time. A skinny tie will usually range 1-2 1/2 inches in width compared to the 3-3 1/2 inch ties.

I find that the skinny tie is far more versatile than the 3 inch ties. Not only can you wear a skinny tie with a slim fit suit, but with a button up and a pair of jeans.

Now to finish up that casual look for Friday at the workplace add on a funky tie bar.

I snagged this polka dot skinny tie and glasses tie bar from The Tie Bar. This is a great website that delivers quality and has grown in popularity thanks to GQ. I recommend checking their website and looking at their wide variety of ties and tie bars.

Until next time my friends, stay classy!
