Lace up boots, are a great piece to buy now and transition into fall. This summer take a cue from Rachel Bilson’s look and try lace up boots with your summer dresses. A boot can turn your look from girly to edgy. Pair your boots with skinny jeans and a t-shirt or a skirt and a top. As a little fashion tip and reminder, this look works but do not get out your white sneakers and wear with dresses. Here are some great boots to add to your wardrobe.

What Were They Thinking – Spring 2010 Menswear Review

August 11th // 2 Comments

You’ve seen the good, but here’s a little peek at some of the more hilarious fashion moments at this season’s shows. Enjoy!

DSquared – Yo-duh-lay-he-hoo
There is so much wrong here that I’m going to stick to the one, most questionable element: exposed leggings. Will this ever be okay? My inclination is that unless they’re hidden under other pants for added warmth—a la thermal underwear— these are never making it to the mainstream. But what do you think?

Givenchy – Are men really ready for studded gladiator sandals?
The Romans may have considered these hardcore sandals to be unisex, but I’m not sold on the idea. It actually took me a few seasons to start liking them on women. Who knows, maybe the masculine versions will grow on me too. For now, however, I have to say these intensely studded sandals aren’t something I want to see on the street any time soon.

Calvin Klein - Lets see those guns (no, not really)!
There’s no question that Calvin Klein cuts a beautiful suit, and this khaki look is no exception. But, sheer arms? Really?

Men's Fashion Tips – Instant Office Upgrade: The Plaid Dress Shirt

August 11th // 2 Comments

If the solid dress shirts in your closet are feeling a little stale and uninteresting, a crisp plaid or check can deschlump you right away. To get it right, balance bolder checks against a solid tie, or a subtly patterned tie in a dark tone. I’m crazy for these classic combinations:
