A Males’s Style Blog: January 2018
This previous 12 months was one other crazy one, both for me and for The Shy Stylist. So many new alternatives introduced themselves and hopefully I’ll have extra to share with you in 2014! The draw back to how busy I discovered myself is that I didn’t get practically as a lot content material posted as I had hoped and deliberate to. With this submit to kick off the new 12 months, I’m going to make a concerted effort to post more regularly and constantly.
My DIY sequence has produced a few of my hottest posts, so expect to see more of that. If there’s a DIY undertaking you want me to sort out, shoot me an electronic mail at [email protected] and possibly you’ll see it on the blog! There will even be tons more Model Options to help inspire your individual appears to be like this coming year and naturally I’ll have some In Assessment and Favourite Finds posts to share some new and cool things with you.
As has develop into my new year’s tradition, in no explicit order, listed here are my 5 favourite appears from 2013. And if you would like to take a look at the original post, simply click the title.
1. The Duck Boot
Boots by L.L. Bean; Jacket by C’N’C Costume National; Sweater by Ben Sherman;
Shirt by Nautica; Chinos by Gant Rugger; Belt from Gap;
Pocket square by Thomas Pink; Sunglasses by Bulgari
What I like about this look is that it exhibits some of the versatility that a utilitarian piece, like L.L. Bean’s Bean Boot can have.
2. Pattern Mixing
Sweater by Rag & Bone for Neiman Marcus & Target; Shirt by Uniqlo;
Cords by Gant Rugger; Boots by AllSaints Spitalfields;
Tie by Band of Outsiders; Tie bar by Link Up; Sunglasses by Bulgari
I believe one in every of the reasons I preferred this shoot a lot is as a result of I acquired to put on some of my favourite items all at once, and it seemed good. Don’t be afraid of mixing textures and patterns, the precise mixture can actually set you apart.
3. Dressing For: New Year’s Eve
Jacket by Ted Baker; Trousers by Fink Clothes; Shirt by Uniqlo; Footwear by AllSaints;
Bow tie by Liberty London; Tux scarf by Dior; Pocket square by Salvatore Ferragamo;
Socks by Tom Ford; Laces by Allen Edmonds; Watch by Bulova
This put up was just enjoyable. I like getting dressed up, but not often get the occasion to put on my tux scarf. The list is pretty much restricted to formal galas, opening evening of the opera, and fancy New Year’s Eve parties, so I’ll take any excuse I can get. This look was also a terrific instance of getting a look come together virtually on it’s own. I’ve had the pants for years, so when i introduced home the jacket and located that salvatore ferragamo career london it matched nearly completely, I used to be tremendous excited!
Four. Season Mixing
Jacket and bag by AllSaints; Shirt and cords by Gant Rugger; Boots by John Varvatos;
Scarf by rag & bone; Watch by Nautica; Sunglasses by Marc by Marc Jacobs
This was a simple one to shoot because typically an outfit just comes collectively and colors play perfectly against each other. This complete put up challenged me just a little though as a result of most people have seasonal outfits, so discovering fashionable methods to combine seasons took some creativity, but a properly-curated wardrobe definitely helps.
5. Head-to-Toe: Ted Baker
Jacket, shirt, pants, footwear, pocket sq. & lapel pin by Ted Baker;
Sunglasses by Marc by Marc Jacobs
I like doing head-to-toe posts because it makes me take a fresh take a look at my wardrobe. Most of the time, a label with a clear design aesthetic will do many of the give you the results you want. Items from completely different seasons and years apart will complement one another like they had been sent down the runway collectively. Ted Baker can be one in all my favourite labels because not solely do the items have fun design quirks, however their jackets are among the few that match me properly without any alterations wanted.
6. Inspiration: Chaos to Couture
Denim vest by Levis (custom-made); Leather-based jacket from thrift (customized);
Time Once more band tee; Denim by Kill Metropolis; Boots by Altama; Hat from thrift;
Bandana, studded belts, leather bracelet from unknown/unbranded
I needed to incorporate this bonus look because I simply actually prefer it. I spent hours making this vest and years sporting it, so I am glad that I obtained to share it on the blog.
