My Styling Tips for Back to School. CC: @ThreadSence

Our stylist, Justin has a thing or two to teach you about killing it when it comes to back-to-school style. We all know that the first days back to class are during that awkward, in-between season time where the weather can be pretty unpredictable. To master back-to-school style, Justin has a few tips for getting through the first few months and beyond. You’re gonna want to take notes.

Building Your Outfit – Comfort is always important, especially at school! You don’t want to wear anything too constricting, because you’ll be walking from class to class or sitting through long lectures, so comfort is the priority. A texture, a print and a basic are the three things that I usually go for when building an outfit. You can’t go wrong when you have a print and a basic together, and adding a hint of texture adds a visually pleasing element to your outfit.

Love Your Layers– Embrace tanks. Tanks are great when you want to add some sort of texture to any outfit, whether it stands alone or is layered under a sweater or blouse. It’s always good to have some sort of light knit whether it’s a sweater, cardi, or chambray button up you can throw over any outfit. It’s perfect for when it gets warmer outside because you can just take it off and tie it around your waist to give your outfit shape while still keeping it interesting.

Embrace Oversized– On lazy days, graphic or textured tees and oversized anything are always on point. Oversized fits give you the comfort of being ready for whatever you need to do while still  having some interest to your outfit.

No matter your personal style, you’ll always need a few key pieces you can count on for beginning an awesome outfit. Here are the three things I recommend investing in for the fall season:

A Boyfriend Jean – It’s a piece you can wear over and over again, no matter the season. You want to invest in that one jean that’s easy to wear with everything, especially when it also adds some sort of texture to your outfit depending on how baggy or distressed they are.

Outerwear– You’ll need a jacket moving into the colder months, so it’s important to choose one that you can wear with any outfit. Adding a leather jacket to any outfit it a guaranteed way to make you look ultra cool.

Boots — Boots will always be a good investment because its something you can wear with dresses, jeans…. whatever! You need some a comfy pair of shoes to get you from class to class, and boots are the answer.

Warm Tones

You’re hot then you’re cold. With this outfit, I’m definitely feeling a little bit warmer. Spring and summer doesn’t always have to be light colored with pastels and cooler tones. For this spring and summer, we can ditch the pretty pastel color schemes and go for something a little bit warmer. Warm color palettes are definitely something trending in stores and on the runway.

Instead of having one warm piece with this outfit, I decided to stick with the warm tones and have a full warm color palette. The top is filled with warm geometric shapes in different warm tones, which tie in perfectly with the rust colored pants. To break up the the outfit more I added a black belt that I tied in a hoop as well as edged up the bottom half by wearing a pair of combat boots.

To top everything off I added a watch and simple cross bracelet to tie in to the darker pieces of the outfit.

Hope you guys enjoyed this look.

Heart, reblog and comment if you guys like this outfit. Hope you guys enjoyed :)

Florals? Groundbreaking.

image

Florals for Spring are definitely NOT groundbreaking…IN WOMENS FASHION. For men on the other hand, florals are definitely a big deal. A nice floral print on a shirt adds a small feminine touch to a very masculine look, which keeps an outfit that much more interest.

image

With this outfit I definitely wanted to make the floral top more masculine by edging up the overall outfit.

image

Keeping a (somewhat) preppy look I paired the floral top with a pair of tailored khaki chino shorts. I like the color combo of the pinks, reds and greens next to the khaki shorts. With a top this vibrant in color, I feel it’d be best to make it stand out; the colors really pop once it’s paired with a neutral color. To break up the print from a pair of basic shorts, I added a black belt and tied it in an interesting way too add that special “different” touch.

image

To add to the edginess of the outfit, I layered bracelets with my watch as well as sported a pair of combat boots with scrunched down socks. (For an even edgier look *Look back at image number 2*, I sat on top of my old 89’ Toyota Celica and smoked a cigarette, edgy enough for ya? ;)

Hope you guys enjoyed this look! Heart, Comment and Reblog!

Black and White

image

Black and white is one of my favorite power couples as well as favorite Spring Trend for Men. I feel like you can never go wrong with a black and white piece, whether its a graphic or a pattern, there’s is something so classic about it that can easily make an outfit stand out without being too loud.

image

With this outfit I dressed down a black and white checkered shirt with a basic graphic tee. (Side Note: I feel mixing a graphic with a pattern is best when the colors coincide with each other)

image

I add a bit of color by wearing a pair of olive colored chinos. To keep it semi casual I finished off the outfit with a pair of brown boots.

Heart, reblog and comment if you guys like this outfit. Hope you guys enjoyed :)

Denim on Denim

Denim on denim is one of my favorite spring trends. With this outfit I tried updating the “Canadian Tuxedo” and geared it more towards Spring 2014. I channeled my inner Alexander Wang and only buttoned the top button over a white button up.

To keep the denim on denim interesting, I paired the button up with a pair of worn out H&M jeans.

To add a more “Spring” element, I added a mustard belt and a red backpack. Another (kind of) denim element, I topped off my outfit with a pair of Canvas high top sneakers with leather panels at the back.

The smoking (which I don’t promote) just makes me look a little edgier, don’t cha think? ;)

Hope you guys enjoyed this look!
