The Casbah Cargos by Citizens of Humanity have to be one of the coolest styles that I have seen in a while. There is this ethnic sense to them that I just love and I had to style them for my weekend look with an androgynous take.
My first thought when I saw these was the men of Pitti Uomo. I can definitely see them wearing a pair of pants like these paired with a tailored jacket, but I wanted to take it to a more casual vibe as I see them worn cuffed with a pair of Vans perfectly. To add to the ease, I wanted a shirt that will look amazing when haphazardly given the half-tuck treatment and this one by Chapter gives just that.
I am a huge fan of layers, just like the men of Pitti, so the choice of adding a scarf was a no brainer. I chose this tribal printed one from New Look as it helps bring out the unique cut from the pants with the print and colors. Then to finish it all off, a pair of the Clubmasters from Ray-ban. Whether you are a man or woman, I can definitely see both sides wearing a look like this. How many of you are tempted to try these out?
For this month I wanted to do a styling post on a cut for women that I personally wear myself and have been styling quite a bit lately. As someone that finds it a struggle finding a pair of skinny jeans from the men’s section that aren’t baggy, I thought it’ll be a good idea to style one of my favorite women’s cuts that I wear most days. The Colettes by A GOLD E have a great skinny cut that is very unisex and not too tight around the ankle which is something that I know most guys look for when they shop the women’s section. Plus they come at a price that you just can’t beat. You can check out the three ways I styled the Colettes in Dark Knight below.
We have been going through weird weather at the moment. It’ll be hot one moment then cold the next, so most of the looks are ones that have been kept simple and look great with or without a jacket. For the first look, I went for one of my favorite looks ever. There is something about the pairing of a black shirt and jeans together with some cool sneakers that you just can’t go wrong with. I paired the jeans with a t shirt by T by Wang and a jacket by TOPSHOP (find similar here) because I am also still obsessed with the look of neoprene at the moment. The shape it gives can take a look to another level, even the most simple ones. I then went for something that will also help elevate the everyday look with a pair of snake embossed Vans slip ons. I just love these shoes as they are a great update from the classic everyday style. To finish it all off, a pair of glasses by RAEN and a bracelet by Luv AJ.
Here is another look consisting of pieces that probably every guy has in their closet. Jeans with a t shirt and a military jacket is such a classic men’s look, that you just can’t go wrong with it, especially in this colorway. I chose a t shirt by Zanerobe for its more lengthy cut and then went for a jacket by Vince to throw on or tie around the waist when the weather decides to switch identity. As us guys mostly keep it classic, there is nothing more classic than the Authentics by Vans. They are perfect for any casual day whether it be just strolling through the city or running errands. Of course a post about casual looks cannot be done without a beanie. I chose this one from Rick Owens because of the easy feel it gives off to what you pair it with.
Now for the most casual look of them all, I wanted to somehow elevate the look of a hoodie and jeans, but still wanted to keep in theme with A GOLD E’s vibe and the casualness of this post. So what other way than to pair it with one of my favorite fashion lines ever, Haider Ackermann, and another updated pair of the classic slip ons by Vans. Ackermann takes a real focus on elevating easy casual pieces with prints and textiles that are unexpected, like this hoodie. It just takes this look of the everyday jeans and classic white BLK DNM t shirt away from feeling like the usual attire. Then, there are the sneakers that also help elevate it. The embossing of them just makes it all feel fresh again, in my opinion, and to finish it all off, a cap by RVCA to balance it all out.
-How would you style these jeans?
For my weekend going out look this Thursday, I wanted to do something easy and Summer inspired. I chose this MICHAEL Michael Kors Denim Shirt as the focal point, pairing it with these dainty IRO Lace Trim Shorts to give off a really feminine feel. As I imagine this as an outfit you could wear around the park or on a picnic, it’s important to wear flats, which is why I chose the Valentino Rockstud Sandals which add edge and flare.
Getting to the accessories, I opted for a Michael Kors Tote as you can fit all of your daily must haves inside it and then went with a Topshop Crochet Floppy Hat and some Tom Ford Cat Eye Sunglasses to keep the sun off your face. No look is complete without jewellery though, so I chose this pretty Sydney Evan Star Ring, these Gold Pearl Earrings and finally this Aurelie Bidermann Crystal Ring. I think jewellery and accessories really bring a simple look together. What do you think of it?
I’ve loved this Coach Studded denim skirt since I saw it on Chloe Sevigny during fashion week. I decided to style my weekend going out look around it to create a casual feminine look, that would be perfect for Mother’s Day brunch (this weekend here in the States) or running errands.
I chose this embellished lace blouse from Lover because I love how delicate the lace is and how nicely it contrasts with the studs on the skirt. For accessories, I chose these silver flats from Blugirl and silver tassel earrings from Nicole Miller because I like the look of the silver tones with the rest of the outfit. Lastly, I added this yellow clutch from Givenchy, for just a touch of color without distracting from the rest of the outfit.
