Daddy’s Gotta Shine….

18 Jun

So this post is dedicated to my father’s… You have received your gifts and your ready to shine in your new clothes… Hopefully your wives, girlfriends, mama’s or children didn’t do that bad. Father’s Day to some has been looked down upon because we naturally glorify Mother’s Day however it takes a special kinda man to be a father so here’s to you dad!!! This outfit is for the ever cool however also chic kinda dad…. H&M has made it fashionable and affordable for you guys to shine. A carmel brown blazer and short combo paired with a white simple button up and deep royal blue chukka’s set the stage for the suave dude in you…. Only thing missing is a classical paired watch… Want to take the look to another level? Well use Usher’s latest hair cut as an inspiration.

Men’s Grooming 101: The Beard

13 Sep

There is something so regal and undeniably sexy about a man with a beard… It gives off a simple allure that is intriguing. Fellas women appreciate a man who is well kempt.  Keeping your facial hair in line is a MUST!!!!!  That includes handling any razor bumps, patches and dark spots. Remember we are carnal creatures and unfortunately we are attracted by our physical attributes first… So I have included a video by Bumpender to keep your beard  and face fresh along with a few looks to gain inspiration.

There is this big myth that “fashion” does not exist for men… Lie… Men are as relevant in fashion as women are relevant in history.  And just like a woman, a man should have certain foundation items in his closet. My item of choice is definitely the cardigan.  And no I am not talking about the Bill Cosby rendition. I am talking about the more fashionable, chic edition. Trust me men this is one item you need in your closet. It can be dressed down to give the nerdy/skate-boy look or it can be dressed up to give that preppy/gentleman look.  Cardigans don’t require much underneath them ether, usually a basic tee-shirt will do the job. Some of my favorite designer cardigans are Polo/Ralph Lauren (you can personalize your cardigan with your name and symbols), BBC (Billionaire Boys Club) and Banna Republic to name a few. But you can also be fashion forward at a discount and find amazing cardigans at H&M and Zara!  Here are a few of my fav celebrities rocking cardigans the right way… Gentlemen pay attention, because cardigans are a style staple that is here to stay..


Jay-Z said it best…You can pay for School but you can’t buy class! Pharell is full of class in this Classic Cardigan.


Kanye said.. Swagga on a hundred  thousand, trillion… Lance Gross swagger is evident! He is not afraid to take a risk with bright, bold color.

T.I. said he was Living revolutionary… Nothing less than Legendary… Ushers style is revolutionary… He sets trends and is ahead of Fashion!
