My June Look book

Standard

Pac Sun Short Sleeve

Pac Sun Shirt-1

It’s the end of another month, and the beginning of another look book. This past month, I only got to feature two looks compared to my usual three to four looks. I would like to blame that on the craziness that was the beginning of the month. Here’s to getting back on track in July.

Both looks for this month are from my trip to Dallas. To survive the summer heat, I dressed for comfort without losing style. Both my pink and black camp shirts are fromĀ PacSunĀ and both my jeans are fromĀ Zara. For my first look, I decided to go with my OG Converse hi-tops. For my second look, I featured my new pink asos sneakers.

I enjoyed my time in Dallas, and I’m glad I packed my outfits accordingly! Now that June is over; it’s time to start planning my July looks. Stay tuned!

 

 

Tropical Print for Spring

Standard

Tropical Print Bomber Jacket for Spring

I’ve never been one to wear pink, but as my style has evolved I’ve learned to try new things. This past week, I stopped by my local mall. I was doing the usual window shopping until my eyes came across this pink tropical print bomber at Forever 21. Then I heard it, that little voice say, “treat yo’self!”

I felt a struggle inside myself. I was running low on cash, but it was the only one in the entire men’s section. So I did what any young man would do, I gave myself an IOU. Trust me when I say, I have no regrets!

Tropical Print Bomber Jacket for Spring

This bomber jacket is going to be a stable piece in my spring wardrobe. I tried it on with several items and found a few ‘must’ to pair it with.

White to beige will go good with this tropical number. That’s why I choose to pair it with a light beige tee from Pac Sun and my favorite white leather converse. To balance the white, I added some torn skinny jeans.

When it comes to accessories, I recommend sticking to a watch. A tan leather strap would look good, but an Apple Watch doesn’t look bad either.

Once spring is in full swing, you can expect to see me wearing this pink tropical print bomber all the time. Of course, I’ll probably be wearing it with shorts. So if you’re interested in this jacket, I suggest visiting Forever 21 at the mall or online before it’s gone!

Ready for Spring Fashion

Standard

Zara jacket

These last few months have been pretty busy, and I’m thankful for every minute! I always have to stop and realize that I’m one of lucky ones, because I’m getting the opportunity to work in public relations and social media. Now I’m challenging myself to get back into keeping up with Guy Loves Fashion and my social media channels.

I’ve been so busy that I didn’t realize how fast the seasons were changing. Winter is nearing its end, and spring is just a few weeks away. And I’ve already made a jumpstart with my fashion. A few weeks, I got to wear this spring ready look on a nice day out in the park in San Antonio.

Zara torn jacket

The piece that really made my look was my torned jean jacket from Zara. This jacket is what I like to call an investment piece, meaning that it cost a pretty penny (Aka $90). Investment pieces are items that will make an outfit pop and can be used for several looks. This is true of my jean jacket, I’ve been able to wear it with some many outfits and I’m still in love!

Skinny jeans from H&M and Converse

 

I paired my jacket with my signature skinny jeans from H&M and my Converse. As long as I’m young, you’re gonna see me rocking these items. Another item that has quickly become a fave of mine are caps. They really come in handy when you need an accessory to take your look to next level, or dealing with a bad hair day. You find wide variety of caps at H&M under $6!

If you’re looking for items to wear for the spring time, try investing in a nice jacket or accessories.

Dressing for the Weekend

Standard

Let's go

I live for the weekends! Even more so for the weekend wear. Having a regular 9 to 6 that requires business attire can do that to you. It can be easy to ditch the workwear for sweats, but when heading out with your friends, try adding a couple of these pieces I can’t live without for your fall weekend wear.

Flannel

Flannels have been a stable for me since freshman year of high school (10 years ago). You can’t go wrong with a flannel, but instead of buttoning it up, use it as a layer. As temperature slowly drop, layering your clothes can be a better option than going HAM with sweaters in 70 degree weather.

With my recent obsession of longer length tees, I recommend trying them out. Honestly, I’ve never been a big fan of wearing a plain crew neck T-shirt, but longer length tees have changed my mind. They are more fashionable than typical plain shirts, and they look pretty good layered with a flannel. Find 2 for $30 at Pac Sun. They have a variety of colors and patterns that you can mix and match.

Whole look

Pair your flannel and tee with a good pair of torn jeans. Now I know a good pair of jeans can cost a fortune nowadays, but getting the right pair can be a fashion investment. ZaraĀ has a great variety of fashion denim that are similar to what you see on the runway, but don’t have that crazy price tag. Their denim is actually more affordable than brands like True Religion or 7 for all Mankind. Purchase a pair of Zara jeans and take your weekend wear to the next level.

Finish off your weekend look with a good pair of shoes and accessories. For my look I went with some white leather converse, also known as my old faithfuls. Go this route or try a pair of boots. Complete the look with your favorite hat and watch, and your read for the weekend!

Cooler Days, Cooler Fashion

Standard

It’s been a month into fall and we are barely feeling lower temperatures. I don’t want to be that person, but you best believe I’m going to take out my Chelsea boots and a denim jacket! Living in South Texas, once the temperatures get into the 70s it’s acceptable to start wearing your cooler weather clothes.

With fall weather in session, I normally opt for darkerĀ tones like olive green, black, grey and navy blue. For this look, I wore a longer length olive green T-shirt from Forever 21, because I’ve recently became obsessed with longer length tees (thank you, Kanye!). I paired it with my favorite black jeans and my awesome brown suede boots from Hawkings McGill.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My American Eagle denim jacket was the icing on the cake! A denim jacket is perfect, because it’s not over the top for 70 degree weather like a wool topcoat. So if you’re looking to dress up for cooler days with cooler fashion try a look similar to mine! Switch out the boots for converse or wear a sports blazer instead of a denim jacket, it’s your call!

New Balance and Short-Sleeved Shirts Are Your Friends!

Standard

Summer Look

When the summer heat is blazing, casual wear becomes everybody’s best friend! This summer, Texas has been pretty hot with degrees in the triple digits. With this heat, it’s important to stay cool for the summer, and you can do that with a few summer fashion essentials.

H&M shirt

Short-sleeved shirt have become my best friend! I used to dislike them, because they reminded me of grandpa shirts. However, that opinion has changed! A thin short-sleeved shirt like this one from H&M will keep you feeling and looking cool. It’s a breathable fabric, so you don’t have to worry about sweating to the extreme. You can purchase a patterned or bright colored short-sleeved from H&M for only $12.99!

Joggers

To compliment your casual shirt, pick a nice pair of joggers instead of shorts. If you pick the right pair, you won’t be dreading the heat. Find a pair that is made of a thin (but quality) fabric. I paired my shirt with a pair of acid washed joggers from Forever 21. They look like denim, but they are thinner, letting my legs breath. Take a look at Forever 21 for a variety of a affordable joggers.

NB Shoes

Now the last thing you need for a cool summer look is a nice pair of casual shoes. A great brand that meets both comfort and cool is New Balance. Their shoes have a supportive midsole that won’t have you regretting wearing them for the entire day. Your feet will thank you for choosing New Balance!

Once you’ve picked a short-sleeved, joggers and a comfortable shoe that’s right for you, you’ll be ready to take on the summer heat!

Let me know what you think of my look and if there are any summer essentials you think I should try.

 

Fall into Green

Standard

QWNL2400

Shades of green can be found in many designer collections and fast fashion stores, and let me say it has become one of my favorite colors. This olive bomber jacket from TargetĀ is affordable and allows you to get in on the trend. It is an olive shade that adds color to an all black wardrobe without being too loud.

UQUL3573

The best way to let your new green bomber jacket grab all the attention is to keep everything else at a minimum. Pair it with a black tee from ZaraĀ and some black torn jeans from H&M. Try adding a beanie for those cool nights out on the town.

What gets me excited about fall is that you can wear boots and not apologize for it. Spring and summer are hot, but fall is the perfect weather for boots. Pair the look with someĀ Chelsea boots or rugged boots, just like I did.

If you’re looking for a new color and item to add to your wardrobe this fall, make it a bomber jacket in a shade of green!
