Men’s Guide to Sunglasses

If you ask any man what fashion accessory they would never give up, I think the answer would most probably be Sunglasses. Sunglasses are one of the most stylish and effortless accessories to add to your outfit that at the same time protect your eyes from the harsh sun and make a fashion statement.

Whether you want a simple classic design that would never go out of style or cool frame that would scream fashion, you will definitely find the perfect shades for you.

These days the options are numerous and so are the colors, so even if you are hesitant to what shape you should go for, check these simple charts:

Clubmaster

One of the main shapes back in style is the CLUBMASTER, these shades have that amazing vintage feel that is perfect for guys who like making a statement in a very casual way. This is a pair that would stay for a while and you can never go wrong with it. If you have a triangular face shape, the Clubmasters are for you. Aviator Although this shape was first designed especially for military, it was not long until it was all the rage during the 70s. This design lost its appeal in the 80s and the 90s to be fully revived by Hollywood in the TopGun movie. Since then it has become a celebrity status shape and has been worn by the A-listers everywhere. I think this is one of the pairs that would look good on anyone and is perfect for every lifestyle. If you are a sunglasses newbie this pair is for you. Wayfarers

The WAYFARERS came to fame by the hands of many legends of the 50s, from Elvis Presley to James Dean to the Beatles, they were all hardcore fans of this shape. Although black is the the most famous color, the newly added colored and tortoise-shell frames are very stylish these days and are seen on various people all the time. This shape is perfect for people with round faces, since it gives their face a lot of structure, but all in all it is a classic and is a staple in every man’s closet.  MirroredMirrored Sunglasses are simply a must-have this season, and you wouldn’t wear any pair than this during the Summer times. The Blue and the Green lenses are perfect to add some color to your outfits. So, if you are a person who enjoys very casual looks or even monochromatic silhouettes, you could definitely rock these shades to add interest to your overall outfit.

RoundFrames

This is one of the hardest shapes to pull-off for anyone, since the frames are very round you have to be able to balance that with a little structure. So, if you have a square-shaped face or are lucky to have prominent cheekbones you are gonna be able to rock this style to the fullest.

Men’s Fashion :: PRINTS Edition

We all have those days, when we look into our overflowing wardrobes and still find nothing to wear. This may be due to the lack of versatility in your closet or even the monotonous color selection, either way the easiest solution for this matter is introducing PRINTS to your closet.

Some men get intimidated by the printed pieces they find in stores, but I can assure you there is nothing frightful there. All you have to do is find the print that speaks to you, since there are a lot to choose from. If you are still a “Print Newbie” I suggest you go for the classic Checkered and Stripes prints, but if you are the adventurous type a Floral or Paisley Designs are perfect for spicing out your outfit.

What you have to remember when wearing prints is that you have to try and stick to colors you usually wear and like, so rather than picking a bright pink striped shirt go for a Denim and White PolkaDots instead, thus making the transition into the “Print World” a lot easier.

Another advice is to start Small, instead of buying a Striped Coat go for a Polka Dots Scarf and see how you get along with adding the print to your everyday wear. Baby steps are always the best solution.

The “What He Wore” category is back on track, and hopefully this time it is back for good.

From my guest posts on Joe’s Box to my friends in real life, a lot of people have been really getting interested in Men’s Fashion around and for a good reason it is. Long days have passed since men couldn’t be bothered with either fashion or styling, and now are the days where the Men’s Fashion Week is getting closer to reaching the same peak of popularity as the women’s .

For me, men’s fashion shouldn’t be about over-doing it with extreme prints and styles, it’s all about the balance of the colors and texture and creating an outfit that reflects their inner state of mind.

You can never go wrong with the perfect Winter Quilted Jacket that adds a casual spirit to the otherwise very classic look. And it is always nice seeing guys who go for lighter shades and colors instead of their typical Greys and Blacks. Combining this Beige Jacket with the grey sweater and the brown pants creates a very earthy palette that is bullet-proof and goes for all occasions. So, next time when you are looking for an update in your winter closet, go for the Quilted Jacket and you will be satisfied with how versatile and convenient it is for styling.

 

What He Wore: Jacket + Pants : ZARA | Sweater: GAP | Shirt: Ted Baker | Shoes: ALDO | Watch : CK | Sunglasses: RayBan.

Men’s Fashion :: Hat Edition

There were times, not so long ago, where a man couldn’t be seen in public without a Hat. The Hat showed his status in life and his position. But, after the 1920’s this Hat trend started to deteriorate, until it simply vanished after the World War 2. Although it could be still seen on some men in Uniform or during important occasions, the Hat Trend was a history.

Gladly, High-end designers had brought this accessory to life again in such a versatile way, that any man could find a style and fit that suits him perfectly. From Casual Beanies to the Classic Fedora you can find a Hat that would change you .

Many think of Hats as just protective accessories instead of  fashionable statements, but they are so wrong. Hats can add that last finishing touch to your look and make it whole and stylish. Nothing gives you that drastic change to your look more than changing the style of your hat, maybe this is due to Hats being so close to your face that you become one with it? Maybe, I am not sure. But what I am sure of, is that you can not but notice a guy wearing a Hat, it is that grasping and mesmerizing.

From making Men look taller to adding a mysterious touch to their look, HAT is an accessory that shouldn’t be underestimated.

Here are a few of my favorite Hats, what’s your go-to Style? Baseball Cap Beanie Hat Fedora Hat Flat Cap Panama Hat Pom-Pom Beanie Pork Pie Hat

Holiday Gift Guide :: MEN’S Edition

Christmas Shopping could be stressful in general, but it always helps having some cool suggestions from other people around you that could make the quest so much easier. While shopping for girls and all the women in your life is quite easy in my opinion, shopping for guys is another thing. I get lost when buying guys christmas or birthday presents, because the choice is very limited. So, I went on a quest to find the best christmas gifts this Season, by asking my husband and a couple of guy friends for gifts they would love to receive.

Therefore, here is my Holiday Gift Guide :: Men’s Edition

Christmas Gift Guide - HIS Edition

1. RAZER KRAKEN PRO NEON HEADPHONES :: who doesn’t like to get proper gaming headphones?? I think all guys who are into gaming or even just into tech-y computer stuff would appreciate a pair of awesome headphones from razer.

2. PLAYSTATION 4 :: This is on a higher budget, but is definitely on top of all guys’ wish-list. This is the Ultimate christmas gift, that would be enjoyed for a very long time. And if the price of the PS4 is too steep for you, you could get the PSVITA, which is an awesome gadget too.

3. BOSE COMPANION 20 MULTIMEDIA SPEAKER SYSTEM :: When it comes to sound, BOSE is where you head to. They have the best sound systems and the prices are quite decent for the quality they provide. This would be a very appreciated and well loved gift for those who enjoy their Music or Videos on their PCs.

4. NESPRESSO COFFEE ACCESSORIES :: for the coffee lovers out there, any of the Nespresso accessories would be highly welcomed. There’s nothing better than sleek modern designs that could be enjoyed with your favorite cup of coffee. If they don’t have a Nespresso machine, a set of cool espresso cups would be a winner gift, too.

5. CHRISTMAS JUMPER :: Stylish jumpers could be worn throughout the whole winter time, but Cool Christmas-themed jumpers could only be worn around the festive times. This JUMPER from H&M has the perfect christmas spirit and the price-tag is very affordable .

6. CHECKED SCARF :: gifting a scarf is a no-brainer in my opinion and is a perfect solution when you are on a budget but still want to get something exciting. The choices are very vast and I think you can never go wrong with a ZARA scarf in a checked print, which is both warm and stylish .

7. KIEHL’S SKINCARE SET FOR MEN :: most of the times men tend to forget about taking care of their skin, which gives you the perfect opportunity to gift one of Kiehl’s Sets made especially for men. These sets come in very masculine packages and smell very neutral, thus making it very guy-friendly.

8. ZIPPO LIGHTER :: a Classic gift in my opinion, and would be greatly admired by your Smoker-friends. Although I do not encourage smoking, I still feel that the Zippo lighters are great in their designs and make a perfect gift for the Collectors in your circle.

9. GMT IRON THRONE :: most people I know are pretty obsessed with Game of Thrones at the moment, so any merchandise that revolves around the series could be a cool gift and very unexpected. Whether it is a figurine statue, a book or even a cup , the receiver would be excited.
