Enhancing your Spring /Summer style : Pt 2 menswear.
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: Enhancing your Spring/Summer style : Pt 2 menswear. Usually when I do this , I zero in one designer , and build new looks from one collection , but this time I decided to use a few different brands to help you with your spring/ summer style. I know what you are thinking , who is concerned with spring/summer style with this Covid-19 epidemic going on right now ? Seeing as how we can’t go anywhere right now anyway , we’ll that is a legitimate concern , however eventually we will get past this pandemic event and you will venture out of the house once again. So it’s good to be prepared for that time when you can venture out again , and that’s what I’m here for. Now what I’m about to do is help you with some new inspired looks utilizing a few different brands , instead of just one starting right here.
Right where you’re probably asking ? Well right here , if you are familiar with this blog then you know Suitsupply is hands down my favorite retailer to buy a suit from . But what does this have to do with enhancing your spring/summer style ? I’m glad you asked. Wearing a great suit doesn’t just begin and end in the fall through the winter. It’s also a spring/summer thing too, and Suitsupply has just introduced some great new suits just in time for the season. What I’m about to do is give you different ways to style a suit for the spring/summer time of year , now let’s get started.
Ok so what I have just shown you is five good ways to wear a spring/summer suit , the top three looks are one my favorites , the cream colored suit, For that suit I gave you three different ways to wear the look. The first being with a shirt and tie , the look being finished off with a slip on basket weave loafer , the second is more dressy casual , giving you a bold spread collar dress shirt with no tie as the center of the look. Then the last look gives you a more laidback fun way of wearing a suit , with a casual sneaker and cream t-shirt. The last two looks give you a blue linen suit that gives you a kind of denim look to the material. The top look gives you a spread collar dress shirt with a tie and basket weave loafer , the other is the same suit done casually, with a clean white designer sneaker and white t-shirt to balance out the look. To shop these looks go to www.suitsupply.com .
Next let’s look at how to Enhance your Spring/Summer , casually , to get started let’s take a look at styling looks from Ralph Lauren.
Ralph Lauren is probably hands down my personal favorite brand , as you could see from one of my previous blog posts, The Fashion follow up : Ralph Lauren. Why ? You may ask , hands down when it comes to timeless clothing and fit it’s hard to beat Ralph Lauren. I personally will not buy another brand of jeans aside from Ralph Lauren ,because the fit and length is always perfect. Now let’s build some spring/summer casual looks with Ralph Lauren.
The classic Polo styled shirt no matter what brand should always be a staple in your wardrobe, as the shirt can go along way. It can be both effortlessly dressed up or down. For both of these looks I’m giving the classic Ralph Lauren Polo shirt , the to look utilizing military style from the shorts then the classic army green Polo Shirt. The next look gives you Ralph Lauren jeans put together with a designer sneaker and multi colored Polo Shirt. Then last , you always need a well fitted and tailored pair of white jeans, this look is styled with a classic Ralph Lauren denim shirt and the new yet not new hot casual shoe for summer the espadrille. To shop these looks go to www.ralphlauren.com .
Let’s jump over to Gucci next to see what kind of looks we can build for your spring/summer style. By the way incase you are wondering, you do not necessarily have to use these brands or designers to achieve these looks , these just happened to be some of my favorite brands to both wear and pull a variety of looks from. Now let’s get started.
Gucci being one of the worlds most well known luxury brand’s although expensive, you have to think of their clothing as investment pieces , investment in quality over quantity. Because the clothing is so well made as long as you take care of them , you will have them for the duration.
For the Gucci looks , I kept it simple and stylishly casual at the same time. For both of these looks , once again I used the classic Polo style shirt as the catalyst for the look . As I was saying before no matter the brand your wardrobe always needs a good Polo shirt or three because they go a long way and with pretty much everything. The top look is done with jeans and the second look is done with shorts. But both the shorts and jeans are Ralph Lauren and not Gucci. Showing that brands can be successfully mixed to accomplish a solid look. To shop the look go to www.gucci.com .
For the final look that I’m about to show you , once again I decided to do a brand mashup, some brands just work well together. The next and last look that I’m using to Enhance your Spring/Summer style is going to use a little bit from Louis Vuitton and Tom Ford. Let’s take a look and see how this comes together.
This is what a high end stylish mashup looks like , for this look I went with another staple that is needed in your wardrobe, the denim jacket. It’s just one of those pieces that never goes out of style and can also be dressed up or down. Both the denim jacket and the jeans are from Tom Ford . Then to compliment the look I went with the classic loafer from Louis Vuitton , I came across these loafers when I was last in NY for fashion week and decided to browse around the LV store. I haven’t been able to forget them sense, to finish the look a classic LV belt to match the loafers. Notice the shirt was kept simple a basic white T-shirt with nothing on it , to build a classic denim look. To shop this look go to www.tomford.com , or www.louisvuitton.com .
One last thing before I go , one more wardrobe staple that you should always have to finish off any look is a nice time piece. It doesn’t have to break the bank , but it should always speak to your style esthetic. Each season or year I always come across a watch brand that usually catches my eye. Previously the brand that impressed me was MVMT and that’s still a favorite for the style and affordability. This season the brand that really caught my attention is Shinola watches.
You will notice that I used these watches in the pics above, these watches are another example of how a watch does not have to be overdone or to flashy to stand out. in fact they look like they could be the more expensive cousin of the MVMT watch. But much like MVMT they have the perfect look to finish off pretty much any look. To shop Shinola watches go to www.shinola.com
