As it is Thanksgiving weekend, I wanted to do a look that was comfortable and on the athleisure side of dressing. We all will most likely still be dealing with the food comas of the holiday and this is a look that is still cool for the guys for whether you finally hit that hike or just want to be about town.
I chose the new Paige Jackson Joggers in Black Gravel to base the look around. They are one of my favorite pants that I own as they have the look of sweatpants, but the smartness of a chino. Not to mention that they have some edge to them with the zippers.
To bring in the athleisure, I paired them with simple staples that many guys would have similar pieces to in their closets. I went for a James Perse t shirt and sweater by Visvim, as they help bring in the cozy vibe. Then to bring in the sports sense, a pair of the Adidas Ultra Boosts and my favorite hat by Gents Co.. This is a look that I can see many guys wearing. How many of you are planning to keep it comfy this weekend?
I love both the wash and the unique twist hem of these AMO Twisted hem skinny jeans, so I chose to style them for my weekend going out look. First, I chose this dark plaid print shirt from Madewell to layer under this dark gray Linea Pelle moto jacket. For accessories, I chose these lace up Giuseppe Zanotti boots because the cropped length is perfect for a taller lace up bootie. Lastly, I finished the look with this navy Chloe Faye bag. I love how all of the darker colors work with the lighter indigo wash of the jeans, I think it keeps the look from being too dark and dramatic, and is perfect for a casual day out or a dinner date.
For my weekend going out look this week, I wanted to something casual and perfect for running errands and shopping on Saturday or Sunday, in gloomy, wet England. It’s chilly here right now, but it’s not cold enough to warrant layering up on numerous coats, scarves and hats, so my outfit here, centered around the Citizens of Humanity Rocket high rise skinny jeans in Axel reflects that perfectly. I chose these jeans as the black skinny makes a great base and these are incredibly comfortable!
I paired the jeans with the iconic Chloe Susanna boots as these make a statement on their own, while looking chic and stylish. I wanted a bit of Autumnal colouring though so I chose this Hobbs Sara sweater in plum burgundy to spice it up a little and then for warmth, layered on a leather jacket, like this Saint Laurent leather biker jacket. To keep it from looking too dark and black though, I lightened the ensemble up with this Wallis beige tote to add some neutral tones to the mix. This is definitely something I would wear myself if I had the pieces! What do you think of it?
After seeing the new leather and suede styles by AG, I instantly knew I wanted to use them for my ‘3 Ways’ post. Even though AG came out with a pair for men, I decided to choose three pairs from the women and show that they can work in the slimmer man’s closet like mine. See the three looks that I came up with below.
Gray leather is a territory that is rarely touched because just like denim, it is something that needs depth to give off a sense of luxury. The good thing about the Shark wash by AG is that they don’t need much help as it actually elevates looks instead of needing pieces to elevate them. So I wanted to do a look that was mostly monochrome and easy, but not so casual. To help elevate the easy feel, I paired the pants with a pair of boots from Loakes and a jacket from Haider Ackermann. Then I just love the pairing of gray and white together, so as a layering piece underneath, I went for a simple t shirt by Elwood. To finish it off, I chose a beanie from Forever 21 because I think it just somehow pulls the whole look together.
I have been waiting for black suede pants for the longest because there is a sense of luxury to them that is just a step up from black denim, but not as bold as leather. And I love that AG came out with such a classic jean style with this Super Black Suede pair.
As they work just like black jeans, I went for a casual look with them. I paired them with a white longline tee by Stampd and the Adidas Ultra Boosts. To bring in an edge to the look, I decided to go for a longline bomber jacket from Zara. Green, black and white is just a classic pairing and will always look right when they are together. As there is a streetwear thing going on with the look, I decided to finish it with this cap by Gents Co..
I couldn’t do this post without, of course, the Super Black Leather pair. The option in styling is just endless and can be worn in numerous ways. For this look here, I wanted to do something in between the two first ones and somewhat in the vein of Harry Styles. I went for a black longline t shirt by Stampd to be layered under a jacket by Coach. For shoes, I wanted a pair that was casual yet smart and Chelsea boots are perfect for that. These by REPRESENT have an amazing color that contrasts great against the black leather. Then to finish it all off, I chose the same Gents Co. hat as the look above for its simplicity and cool of it.
