Fashion between the panels: James Bond…

Fashion between the panels: James Bond…

Hello everyone out there as always it’s good to see you. I AM JMADDD STYLES, and I would like to welcome you to my new blog post: Fashion between the panels: James Bond . Over the years , there have been many faces attached to the mantle of 007 James Bond. But no matter what face attached to the name , the character was always synonymous with smooth style and great fashion throughout the years , no matter what era it was , be it 60’s , 70’s , 80’s , 90’s or the 2000’s , whatever version of Bond you got they all had and have the same trait impeccable style and always perfectly tailored clothing.

Over the many decades and years that’s been a lot of fashion and tons of style , but today we are going to focus in on the latest and my personal favorite 007 , Daniel Craig . I don’t know if perhaps I was a little to young to appreciate the style of the previous Bonds , or if I just plain didn’t pay any attention . Whatever it is the style of the latest 007 just seems to resonate with me , no matter if he’s giving you casual , dressy or formal style. Now Daniel Craig is back with a new Bond movie set to be released in April of 2020 titled No time to die . By the way honorable mention to the new 007 that will appear with Daniel Craig in the latest movie.

Which I’m sure that I will be discussing her style in future blogs as well , for now though I’m going to break down the style of the Daniel Craig 007 , James Bond in three different categories. Dressy , Dressy Casual, and Casual. I will be showing you how to capture and put together James Bond 007 No Time to Die style .

Before getting started I just wanted to give you a look at the cast of the new movie. That would be because if you have ever noticed it , even the supporting cast of the James Bond films are always fashionable especially the various Bond women over the years , but that’s an entirely new blog post with in itself , for another time. For now let’s capture the impeccable style of the current 007 James Bond , starting right here….

Casual Bond style :

The James Bond casual style usually consists of a either casual trousers or cargo pants , a crew neck cashmere style sweater or turtleneck, always the finest of quality clothing that is usually finished off with a tactical watch to match the tactical look of the clothing.

Dressy Casual Bond style :

The dressy casual 007 James Bond style usually sits somewhere between not too dressy and not to casual, pretty simple formula , wouldn’t you say ? The look usually consists of a cashmere topcoat or car coat , a more dressy trouser or pant , a blazer and either a dress shirt with possibly no tie or the look could be pulled off with a turtleneck as well , and to finish the look a great high end dress shoe or boot.

All looks and styles are arranged and put together by JMADDD STYLES.

Dressy Bond style :

This is the look that 007 James Bond is usually known for , the well tailored suit , usually black , grey , or a variation of it with a pattern, and occasionally navy or dark blue. The look usually also consists of a high end dress shoe or boot a crisp white designer dress shirt , pocket square , and a plain colored solid tie. It is said that each of the suits that James Bond wears costs upwards of 5 to 10,000$ a pop , that’s the best of the best when it comes to materials and fit .

All looks and styles are arranged and put together by JMADDD STYLES.

That is 007 James Bond style broken down in three easy to follow categories, that you can easily put together to capture the classic style of 007 Bond , James Bond and if you still have trouble capturing the look on your own , that’s what you have people like me for ready to help you with your personal style at all times. All you have to do is contact me and we can talk about it.

The Fashion follow up : Tom Ford.

The Fashion follow up : Tom Ford.

Hello everyone out there, as always it’s good to see you. I AM JMADDD STYLES , and I would like to take this time out to welcome you to my latest blog post. The Fashion follow up : Tom Ford. For those not too familiar this fashion/style blog site , each time I continue the Fashion follow up series, I’m going back and revisiting a designer or brand that I may have spoken on , in a previous blog post, to give a fashionable update on what’s happening with their brand now and what the brands new looks are , for the upcoming season look like as well as I style looks from the collection, to show various ways to wear the clothing. With that said let’s get started.

Over the last two years or so Tom Ford has taken over as the new CFDA Chairman. NYFW has just ended a little over a week ago, but this year for the AW2020 season , as always Tom Ford kicked the week of shows off with a bang , a visually stunning runway presentation of both men’s and women’s looks for the upcoming season. However this year when he kicked off fashion week , in true Tom Ford fashion he came up with yet another innovative way to show his collection. Instead of kicking off NYFW in NY , Tom Ford decided he would do his runway presentation in LA instead of NY , something that no one has ever seen done before , and I’m almost certain that Anna Wintour probably wasn’t to pleased with his decision, but it’s Tom Ford , what can you do other than attend the show and enjoy it. The decision to have the show in LA was basically based around the fact that the Oscars was happening in LA at the exact same time meaning that all the celebrities would be where he was going to kick off fashion week at, so basically it was a very strategic and well calculated move despite the fact that he did not kick off the shows in NY. If you were in the audience then here are a few of the looks that you saw on the runway for AW2020.

As always Tom Ford never disappoints, he comes with rich fabrics, bold patterns and is one of those designers that does both a a great men’s and women’s line of clothes. He doesn’t shy away from the use of color in his collections either which in my fashionable opinion is always important.

His use of Suedes and leathers and velvets ,of the finest quality not only translate well on the runway but also when the pieces hit retail they look as good if not even better.

For this installment of the Fashion follow up , not only am I going to give you a glimpse at his AW2020 ( Autumn/ Winter ) collection , I’m also going to show you and style looks from SS20 (Spring/Summer) men’s and women’s collection as well.

The SS20 collection has many of the same ascetics as the upcoming Aw2020 collection , which in Tom Fords case is not a bad thing , in fact it’s a great thing, cause it shows the consistency of each of TF’s collections. He doesn’t stray away from his fashionable formula that makes the brand work. Weather it was TF designing fo Gucci years ago , or the current TF brand , he never strays to far from the look that is historically Tom Ford , keeping his core customer base intact all while continuing to gain a new fashionable fan fare in the process. Making it possible for Tom Ford to continue to thrive and be a anticipated line each year and season . Now as I often say , it’s time to put on my Fashion Stylist , hat and show you the now current ready to wear SS20 collection , giving it that JMADDD STYLES touch , showing you how to put what I think are the stand out looks from the collection , both men’s and womenswear together.

TF Menswear :

Now that you have decided to enter the big red TF SS20 door , let’s have a quick look first at the menswear collection from the runway perspective.

Now what you will notice from a runway perspective is that the TF SS20 menswear collection, is not just giving you basic colors or materials , the collection is giving you well done pastel color ways. The collection also showcases these color ways in not only cottons or linens or silk blends , but TF working heavy with pastel and earth tone colors with leather , and suede , both pants and jackets. That was the runway perspective, let’s now get it from the up close styling perspective.

All styling pics are arranged and put together by JMADDD STYLES…

Okay now that you have had an up close look at the TF SS20 menswear collection from the Fashion Stylist perspective, what do you think ? One thing that you have to notice upfront that simply can’t be missed is the undeniable quality and richness put into each garment. But as always… I LET YOU TELL IT… You ready to take a look at the TF SS20 womenswear collection ? Of course you are , let’s have a look back inside of the big red TF SS20 door to get a look at both the runway perspective and the Fashion Stylist perspective.

TF Womenswear :

Good to see that you decided to stay with me , and take a look back inside the TF SS20 door to get a runway perspective of the womenswear collection , and much like the menswear collection, you can’t miss the undeniable quality and richness of each garment. Another thing that you can’t miss is the fact that although a lot of Tom Fords women’s clothing is indeed sexy , but he knows how to keep the look of the clothing sexy but also maintain a level of class with his designs and that’s one thing that a lot of women miss the mark on. Just because it’s sexy does not mean that it’s good fashion and should be worn. TF knows how to put both the sexy and the classy into all of his garments and stay on trend all at the same time. That’s the runway perspective now let’s once again get the Fashion Stylist perspective and a closer look at the collection.

All styling pics are arranged and put together by JMADDD STYLES.

That was once again an up close Fashion Stylist look at the TF SS20 collection but this time I gave you womenswear. You had to notice as I was saying a little earlier , first and foremost the quality of each garment. But also as was said earlier , TF makes womenswear both sexy and classy at the same time , never trashy and always sustainable, so each article of clothing is like an investment in quality and that’s another important thing to understand when purchasing clothing. Quality always beats quantity, just because you can get a lot of something for cheap does not mean that it’s the best way to go. Always invest in more quality pieces that are a little more expensive that will stand the test of time. Not saying that you have to break the bank but always pay attention to quality and that is dependably what each TF collection gives you.

Well there it is we have just reached the end of yet another blog post, I AM JMADDD STYLES and this has been The Fashion follow up : Tom Ford. I AM JMADDD STYLES and that’s it for now , so until the next time IM GONE…!!!… See you next time.

Fashion between the panels: The women of Marvel: Part 2.

Fashion between the panels : The women of Marvel : Part 2.

Hello everyone out there , as always it’s good to see you. I AM JMADDD STYLES and I would like to take this time out to welcome you to my latest blog post . Fashion between the panels : The women of Marvel : Part 2 , it’s the second installment of the women of Marvel series . Picking back up where I left off with four more comic-book heroines , to draw fashionable inspiration from , developing new fashionably inspired looks based on and inspired by various ways each character looks in the pages of your favorite comics . For part one I used Storm , Jubilee, Jean Grey and Rogue as the fashionable inspiration and backdrop for the looks being styled . For part two the fashionable inspiration will come from Misty Knight , The Black Widow , Ms. Marvel and Medusa . With that said it’s time to get started , keep your eyes moving so you don’t miss not one fashionable detail of how I build and style these new looks based on each one of these characters. Starting with…..

Misty Knight :

Misty Knight is a very interesting character, because she kind of reminds you of a modern day version of a character from the blaxploitation films of the late 60’s and early 70’s era , drawing inspiration from iconic characters like Foxy Brown and Cleopatra Jones.

She has been drawn slightly different over the years , but the basic blue print of this comic book hero has stayed the same making her a great source of fashionable inspiration.

Starting with her signature red leather suit , and from a trend perspective leather is going to be hotter this season than it’s ever been , so that is where we can get started styling new looks based on her bold red leather suit.

The first look is more on the dressy side as the look starts with a leather blazer , and to from there the matching leather pants and to highlight the look even better a fitted mock neck sweater in cream which plays off the red color perfectly. The look is finished out with a red ankle boot and gold cuff bracelet , creating a true fly girl look . The second look is a little more on the sporty side , still using the bold look of red to capture the fashionable likeness of Misty Knight . But this look is a little more youthful , starting with the red designer joggers with a bold red moto-style jacket to set the look off and then completing the look with still a cream top but a more body conscious crop tank top and gold cuff bracelet and still using the same red ankle boot.

Then there is this look , where she goes from an all red leather look to a blue and red color scheme. This look could be interpreted in several different ways for fashionable inspiration to build a new look .

To capture this look , I stayed with the red and blue color scheme, but ventured out from using leather. The first look truly captures the new look of the character, using a blue and red jumpsuit with accents of white , to highlight the look even more , the face shield style sunglasses, gold cuff bracelet and finishing the look with a navy blue instead of red ankle boot. For the last look I took a more dressy casual approach, this time using a red high neck blouse, complimented and paired with a tailored dress pant or trouser . Then to finish the look out a gold and red watch with a multi colored cuff bracelet then going back to the red ankle boot with a slightly more sleek look to it to better suit the dress trouser , capturing the fashionable likeness of Misty Knight.

Black Widow :

When it comes to The Black Widow or Natasha Romanoff , there are many different adaptations of the character, be it the way she looks on the big screen with Scarlet Johansson’s live adaptation of the character or the classic way she looks in the comic books.

No matter which adaptation of the character you are looking at , you will usually always see her in the signature one piece catsuit or tactical suit that she has been so well known for over the years . This look has also maintained it’s fashionable relevance over the years as well , making it great source of fashionable inspiration to build several looks from.

So that’s where we will start , these first two looks truly capture the look of The Black Widow , For both of these looks I utilized the ever trendy one piece catsuit or jumpsuit in black . For the top look a more traditional style of catsuit made in a more stretch knit fabric with the belt attached that is very reminiscent of the belt that you often see on the character in various adaptations. To compliment the look , I used a leather black and gold clutch, fitted leather gloves and a knee high leather boot , finishing the look with one gold cuff bracelet. The second look is done in leather , once again using a catsuit, but for this look I went with two gold cuff bracelets for each wrist , the leather gloves , and instead of the knee high boot I went with a more calf high half boot creating a slightly different look.

For these last two looks , I decided to capture the look in a slightly different way. Instead of going with the signature catsuit look , opted to go with separates that still capture the same fashionable likeness. As always the look is done in all black but it’s the details that really bring the look home. In the first look , I went with a turtleneck and tailored dress pant but added a gold chain style belt to capture the feel of the belt that Natasha Romanoff is known for . Finishing the look with a square heel ankle boot and cross body bag. For the second look I went with a one piece leather look onesie and a machined denim leather look pair of jeans . The gold belt and for an even more slightly different option the black pump. Then once again to finish the look another cross body bag , perfectly capturing the fashionable likeness of Natasha Romanoff , The Black Widow.

Ms. Marvel :

Ms. Marvel is an interesting character to use as fashionable inspiration, because there are three different adaptations of the character. There two different depictions of Ms. Marvel , then there is Captain Marvel whom she would later become.

These first two looks are inspired from the most well known 90’s adaptation of Carol Danvers , or Ms. Marvel. Her look at the time was a black onesie, thigh high boots and a red sash as a belt a signature piece that would stay with her. To capture the fashionable likeness of this look , I went with black leather shorts, and a leather tank. But as I often say the small details are always important. This adaptation of Carol Danvers has a lightning bolt down the middle of her suit. To capture this I used a gold chain that was complete with a gold and diamond in crusted lighting bolt , then to finish the look the leather side zip thigh high boot and the red leather tie up belt .

This next look captures the earlier late 60’s through the 80′ s adaptation of the character, that would later flip flop back and forth through the 80’s and 90’s . For this look I went with a more trendy sporty approach to the look. Starting with the red onesie and denim shorts , but once again the attention is in the details. This version of the character has a gold star on her suit and instead of a red sash for a belt , it’s now more like a scarf . So to capture this I went with a gold chain but this time complete with an identical gold star . Then to finish the look , the sock sneaker in red and blue to set off the whole color scheme.

Then this last look is inspired from what Ms. Marvel would later become after she took up the mantle of the all new version of Captain Marvel. For this look the one piece denim jump suit in blue , perfectly accented with the red leather belt , jacket and knee high peep toe boot trimmed in gold perfectly capturing the fashionable likeness of Carol Danvers , Ms.Marvel / Captain Marvel.

Medusa:

We have almost reached the end , but we have one last heroine to capture , she is Medusa of the Inhuman’s , over the years no matter how this character has been adapted over the years , the details always stayed the same from the signature two shades of purple suit and her always identifiable long red hair.

For the first look , keeping it two shades of purple , I started with a dramatic blouse , then from there a purple leather pant then a contrasting darker purple almost burgundy ankle boot cross body bag and light purple gloves.

Then for the second look , once again I went dressy casual or better yet business casual for the look . Starting with a button up dress shirt , then a purple trouser , and to finish the look, the darker purple accents for the boots and bag.

Then for this last look , still keeping it purple, the look is styled starting with a short leather purple one piece romper. From there the darker purple contrast comes in with the boots , the watch , and bag. Then finishing the look with a gold bracelet. Perfectly capturing the fashionable likeness of Medusa.

Well there it is , we have just reached the end of yet another blog post, I hope that you have enjoyed reading it , as much as I have presenting it. I AM JMADDD STYLES and this has been Fashion between the panels : The women of Marvel: Part 2 . That’s it for now , so until the next time…IM GONE.!!!..

New & Fashionably noteworthy collaborations: Adidas x IVY PARK.

New & Fashionably noteworthy collaborations : Adidas x IVY PARK

Hello everyone out there , as always it’s good to see you. I AM JMADDD STYLES and I would like to take this time out to welcome you to my latest blog post: New & Fashionably noteworthy collaborations : Adidas x IVY PARK. Now if you are familiar with this website then you know there is a saying that I frequently use , that saying being ( there is nothing I like more than a good fashionable collaboration). The collaboration that I’m speaking of is none other than the highly anticipated return of Beyoncé’s line IVY PARK with it’s new collaborator Adidas. The line took a small hiatus from production since Beyoncé parted ways with former partner Topshop , shortly after that departure fashionable rumors began to circulate about the line making a return in a major way with a new partner / collaborator , Adidas.

But then shortly after this issue of ELLE Magazine hit the shelves , the rumored relaunch of the line became less of a fashionable myth and more of a reality , as you were seeing the first looks at the line that was to come as well as a mini marketing campaign.

Complete with fashionably subliminal pictures that all displayed how the new line was going to look without really telling you exactly that this was the new line and just giving you well placed ways of seeing how IVY PARK and Adidas were about to hit the ground 100 miles and running.

Between this Elle Magazine shoot and Beyoncé’s various Instagram posts dropping , you knew or you had to know that the collaboration between Adidas and IVY PARK wasn’t just wishful thinking, but was indeed a fashionable reality that was set and ready to come out very shortly.

With a release date of January 18 , 2020 in place every IVY PARK / Adidas/ Beyoncé fan was on the lookout for this relaunch to hit stores and online , just to get a piece of this highly anticipated line once it hit.

Finally that day is here and the true enough the line hit stores and online alike to very favorable fan fare . Before the line was released into stores there was a prelaunch of the line online the day before on January 17 , 2020. If you were privied enough to get the online invite from Adidas to come to their site ( http://www.adidas.com) , then you were able to log on and wait in a virtual line to get a first glimpse into the new world of Adidas x IVY PARK . You were also able to buy pieces from the line as well , the traffic on the site was so busy that most of the clothing was sold out shortly after it’s release . The line is moderate in price with items ranging from 25.00$ up to about 250.00$ . The new IVY PARK line is also a unisex line of clothing, now I have to say usually when I see this , I don’t think every brand does a good job of pulling this off , but I have to say that the new Adidas/ IVY PARK line has done a great job at creating pieces that both men and women can wear without looking like it’s forced or not well done. With that said I have selected what I think are the stand out pieces from the line and styled them in both women’s and menswear looks with small detail differences so you could see how both men and women can wear these looks.

Menswear :

The line is truly what you call a cross between athletic and leisure, a true lifestyle/ athleisure line of clothing that could be both dressed up and dressed down all at the same time , the line consists of four different styles of sneakers , a variety of fleece wear , both T-shirts long and short sleeve , socks , Fanny packs , Harness bags , Beanies and backless baseball hats. Also jumpsuits , tights , athletic tanks , Asymmetrical jackets and jackets that can be taken apart and worn in a variety of ways.Womenswear: In my fashionable opinion I have to say that the relaunch of the IVY PARK line is a truly a good look , I think it’s way more advanced fashionably speaking than the first generation of IVY PARK clothing, but the real question is what do you think ? Are you hear for it ? As always I LET YOU TELL IT. Well there it is , once again we have come to the end of yet another blog post , I AM JMADDD STYLES , and this has been New & Fashionably noteworthy collaborations: Adidas x IVY PARK. That’s it for now , so until the next time…IM GONE…!!!…

Fashion between the panels: The women of Marvel : Part 1.

Fashion between the panels: The women of Marvel: Part 1.

Hello everyone out there as always it’s good to see you , I AM JMADDD STYLES and I’m back with my latest blog post, Fashion between the panels : The women of Marvel: Part 1 . For this blog post , im going to go between the panels of Marvel Comics and draw style inspiration from The women of Marvel. For part one of this blog post The women of Marvel that I’m using for the backdrop of this blog post all come from the pages of The X-MEN. To get more specific : Storm , Rogue , Jean Grey , and Jubilee . So right about now , it’s time for me to put on my Fashion Stylist hat and create new looks based on the looks of these characters. With that said , let’s get started with….

Jubilee :

Jubilee is one of the younger members of The X-MEN , but she is a great character to draw style inspiration from because of her cool look , especially for the fact that she wears such vibrant colors that are very much trend worthy. The first look of hers that I’m going to use to draw style inspiration from is her original look , that consisted of a bold yellow trench , blue jeans and a pink top with the signature pink sunglasses. For this look I went with a full length yellow leather trench coat , as the center piece of the look . From there I used a pink crop top sweater and a lighter washed denim , a pink calf high boot to add more appeal to the look then finished the look off with pink sunglasses and gloves , the color scheme is not something that most would think of right off the back but when you look at it , all the colors blend. And come together perfectly.For the next look , I decided to go with Jubilee’s more new look , the trench coat had not changed as that is the true signature of the character, but the rest of the look has changed to a black jogging suit , with black gloves and boots. For this look I went with a more non conventional leather trench coat that had more of a sporty look to it to go with the more activewear style of the character. The first look is started from a jump/jogging suit that is sleeveless but still takes on the track suit look , then I went with two different styles of boots one is a more combat inspired boot , toning down the sexy but still making the look trendy , the second look uses a heeled ankle boot and the look is topped off with leather goods. For the last looks I went active lifestyle wear separates and once again gave you the option of two different style of boots.

Storm :

Storm often operates as the leader of The X-MEN and has a kind of royal look about her which only makes sense considering she was married to The Black Panther. But that’s a whole other story. For Storm I’m going to build two looks based on two of her different comic book styles , starting with the one you are seeing in the above picture , one of the classic variations of her black suit. To capture this look I decided to work with all leather , starting with the black leather cape as the center piece of the look , next went with a high waisted leather pant and an off the shoulder leather shirt , finishing the look with a gold and black wide belt and a gold and black ankle boot.For the next look , I’m using the characters even more regal /royal look as she goes from wearing all black and gold to all white.

Wearing all white is a fashionable art in itself , knowing how to pull it off in both the summertime and the winter. In this case the look that is inspired from the omega level mutant is a high end winter white look to give you the feel of capturing the fashionable likeness of this character. So many people are afraid to wear white for fear that it is not slimming, but that is far from the truth , you just have to know how to pull it off, but if you don’t that’s what I’m here for. This look is started from the trench coat as the center of the look then over to the leather shirt . All of this highlights the fitted trousers and the white and gold trimmed boot. I often say when done correctly white can bring the best out of any well dressed woman , it’s a real head turner. For men as well but especially a well dressed woman.

Rogue :

Rogue is a very interesting character one that has had different looks and appearances over the years that she has appeared in the pages of the X-MEN . My personal favorite version of the character is the more confident strong yet girly version that appeared in the comics and the cartoon series around about the mid to late 80’s after she had taken on the powers and personality of Ms. Marvel , so that’s the Rogue that I drew fashionable inspiration from.For both looks it was important to start with her signature aviator style bomber jacket from there in both looks I made sure to capture the yellow and green color combination that she was well known for . In the top look though, I went with a knee high yellow boot as opposed to a gold one , to really capture the fashionable likeness of Rogue , from there I went with a brown designer belt to match the jacket once again truly capturing the likeness of the character in a fashionable way.We are close to the end of part 1 of Fashion between the panels: The women of Marvel , but we have one more to cover from the pages of the X-MEN , can you guess who it is ? Well let’s take a look and see.

Jean Grey :

Jean Grey is a very interesting character in herself, complex as well , and arguably the most powerful mutant in the X-MEN . She has taken on many different looks over the years and personalities to go with those looks. But the version that we are going with today is from the late 80’s to the 90’s and somewhat the early 2000’s , I’m also going to style a look that captures her Phoenix force persona also. To capture the fashionable likeness of Jean Grey , similar to Rogue , I had to go with a green and gold color combination. But for this look the gold had to be really played up as a major part of the look , also if you know about the character then you know as regular yet still powerful Jean Grey the persona is more held back not as bold or brash , so for the look I went with a more fashionable yet slightly more subtle look using the gold accents to really bring the look out starting with the gold moto style jacket and ending with bold calf high gold boot to finish the look off. Then there is off the charts powerful Phoenix force Jean Grey , the persona becomes more bad girl border line super villain like and her look becomes just as bold as the character herself .For this look I went with more of a bold fitted look from the suede and leather pant to the more fitted cross body leather/suede blouse. But then to really bring the look home I went with a chain belt and a more sexier boot that goes thigh high to create a look that switches the whole look and feel of this character separating the two fashionable likeness’s creating looks for two different yet fashionable women.But the really interesting part of it all is that both looks are truly Jean Grey or maybe even both looks are truly you , the reader that hopefully has found a new way to enhance your style and look through the fashionable inspiration in this latest blog post. Well there it is , we have just reached the end of yet another blog post , I hope you have enjoyed reading it as much as I have enjoyed writing it and putting together all the looks. I AM JMADDD STYLES and this has been Fashion between the panels: The women of Marvel: Pt 1 . Be sure to stay tuned for part 2 that will be coming very soon , who knows what comic books heroine I will be fashionably inspired by for that , you will just have to be here for it. However that’s it for now , so until the next time…IM GONE…!!!…

The art of dressing business casual: Menswear

The art of dressing business casual: Menswear

Hello everyone out there as always it’s good to see you . Just in case you are not to familiar with me or are new to this blog & you have not pressed play on the intro , I AM JMADDD STYLES. Fashion Stylist , Image Consultant , Personal Fashion Shopper , and now Fashion/Style blogger with a side of YouTuber. I would like to take this time out to welcome you to my latest blog post : The art of dressing business casual: Menswear. This is a fashionable subject that often perplexes many as much as the subject of dressy casual, which in-fact really isn’t much different. What we are going to do today is have a look at some styles that I have put together to fit the title of business casual and give you a little bit of commentary as to why the look works. So let’s get started. Now upfront you’re should know that dressing business casual does not actually have to mean putting on a suit , especially not a conventional suit . For this look I went with corduroy suit which can be a little easier to dress down and can be a little more casual than the more conventional suit is or could be . Even though if you know how a conventional suit can be very easily dressed down as well. This works because it also shows that you do not need on a tie to fit the mold of business casual either , then to take it a step further the top look is showing you how to be business casual without wearing a dress shoe but instead using a designer casual sneaker to make the look still business but less serious.The next three looks show you how to go business casual using jeans , and this series of looks also show you that being business casual doesn’t always have to mean wearing a blazer either or even a dress shirt of sorts depending on what industry you are in and where it is that you are going. If you are going to use the option of dress jeans , make sure that you use a dark wash for the look , with no rips or other distressing to the denim. This look works because when done correctly a pair of dark denims can look as dressy and good as the finest pair of trousers. For the next two looks not only did I take away the blazer and conventional suit look but I inserted a cool leather jacket , now what makes this look work is the fact that the leather jacket is paired with a dress boot and a slightly high waisted trouser to really make the look more dressy and you guessed it business casual. The look is made diverse by switching out the shirts from a more dressy button up shirt to a turtleneck just taking a new meaning to the term business casual.For the last two looks I’m taking you back to the blazer and trousers look, the first look is giving you the more modernized look of a classic look from the past with a leather blazer and once again the turtleneck, I always say the turtleneck is something every man needs to have as a staple in their wardrobe , it’s always a major go to item as it looks great with almost everything. The second look is a favorite of mine that was put together for a previous blog about the style that is Ralph Lauren. This style just so happens to fit the mold of this latest blog post , but once again this look utilizes neutrals and trousers to give you that perfect go anywhere business casual look. Well there it is , we have just reached the end of yet another blog post. Hopefully I have defined the style that is business casual good enough for you to be able to follow the fashionable formula to seamlessly pull this style off. I AM JMADDD STYLES , and this has been The art of dressing business casual: Menswear. That’s it for now , so until the next time…IM GONE…!!!..
