For this months styling post for SSENSE, I wanted to change it around and do something for the guys. I usually style a lot of ladies looks, but I love men’s fashion just as much as I do women’s, so I had fun creating this casual look around a pair of Nudie Tight Long John jeans. I chose these jeans for the base of the outfit as they are such a classic raw denim colour which goes with anything and Nudie always provide a great fit, in my opinion.
I decided to pair the jeans with a Marc by Marc Jacobs Heather Grey Leather Trimmed Thompson Sweatshirt, some Common Project Low Tops in Burgundy, a Neil Barrett Burgundy Wool Knit Beanie and a Maison Martin Margiela Brass Spiral Ring.
Burgundy is always my favourite colour for Winter and I think it looks just as good on men as it does on women, if not better, so that’s why I added some colour to the look with the sneakers and beanie. The sweatshirt is also another favourite of mine, when I saw it I could definitely envision many outfits as it’s such a simple yet beautiful piece of clothing. Grey marl is very versatile and I think the black leather detailing makes it that little bit more structured so it looks more smart than casual. I added the ring in just as a finishing touch, but I know male jewellery is great for some and not for others, so of course it’s optional. Would you wear a look like this?
Joel Madden was spotted leaving the Andy Lecompte Salon after getting his hair color touched up in Los Angeles, California. He wore a double denim look for the appointment. Joel chose to pair together a Nudie Denim Vest (which I think is their Terry Jacket in Coated Black that has the sleeves cut off) with a pair of Hysteric Glamour Cowboy jeans.
It’s been a while since we got a sighting of Hysteric Glamour jeans and it is well overdue. I think their washes are pretty amazing. I also like the details like the studs at the rim of the pocket. You can click here to purchase Nudie at SSENSE.

This post was really fun this month as I got to choose my top 5 picks from SSENSE! I chose 3 jeans, 1 pair of shoes and 1 bag. I also included a pair of jeans for the guys so they didn’t get left out! We wanted to do something a little different with our sponsor for this month, so choosing 5 favourite pieces from the entire website made a nice change. I think it’s fun to showcase a varied selection of pieces every now and then, than have a styling post each time.
For my choices, I chose the rag & bone jeans because I love waxed black skinny jeans! Those are one of my favourite styles and combining the fabric with the triple hipper zips and ankles zips just makes them perfect! I love these jeans! I also fell in love with the Giuseppe Zanotti heels as soon as I saw them! Burgundy suede is a huge weakness of mine and the style of them is amazing. I can imagine them looking perfect with dark wash skinny jeans.
I chose the Nudie Jeans Thin Finn’s because they are one of Nudie Jeans’ most popular cuts and I liked the wash. Since it’s summer, it’s nice to have a mid/lighter wash for more casual wear and these seemed like the perfect choice! I was then smitten by the Proenza Schouler wallet in Lime. I am a big fan of the neon trend, especially in yellow, so this is just the cutest piece to own! Finally, I went for some coloured denim and chose the purple IRO skinnies. I like the fact that they are not block colour, they are washed and faded just like regular blue denim and I think that makes them fun! So these are my top 5 picks from SSENSE, what are some of your favourite pieces?
Liam Hemsworth covers Men’s Health September 2012 in a pair of Nudie Grim Tim Organic jeans in Dry Navy. One thing I always notice about Men’s Health covers, is just how simple they are. They are never over the top and it’s always either a plain t-shirt and jeans, or no t-shirt and jeans. It’s just more about the content which I find intriguing. I feel like women are more drawn to the photos and pictures on a cover, where as the men are not. Is that just my perception or would you agree?
