Menswear Monday: River Island Swimwear Spotlight

River Island has some lovely swim gear for men this summer. River Island is a cool clothing company (one that was brought to my attention through their recent work with Rihanna), but they feature lots of cool stuff for men and women. Their swimwear doesn’t come up short, either.

Check out a couple of their cool printed items from their most recent men’s swim collections.

With stylish prints and modern cuts, River Island swimwear is definitely worthy poolside gear for the stylish male.

Menswear Mondays: Give it to me A$AP

It’s Menswear Monday BIIITTTCCCHHHESSSSS 

*snaps and applause*

lets do it up one time for the men, ya’ll only get one day a week so i’ll do my best to make it SPICY

So a few weeks ago I heard the song Wild for the Night by A$AP Rocky ft Skrillex from his debut album (not mixtape, album) Long.Live.A$AP. Like I’d heard it before in passing but never the whole thing ( you know how that goes)…and that song is PLAYA-5000. I love it! And it has been decided by myself and the bestie to make that one of the cardinal songs of our summer.

Great F’in Song.

But there’s another reason to take note of Wild for the Night and that is the video. A$AP Rocky wore some killer garb for his wild night in the Dominican Republic.

The matching patterned shirt-jacket combo was a smart & cool fashion choice, couple with white shorts to keep the pattern toned down jussssst enough. The fit of the shorts with a little cuff, was a nice style move as well. The gold rimmed circle glasses add another interesting element to the look and the backwards cap and gold chain make it just gangsta enough to be fit for the purple swag king.

A$AP’s music is great, but his style may be something to keep an eye on as well.

stay tuned men, & every Monday I’ll make ya remember why ya’ll never unfollow this girlie blog!

Menswear Mondays : Costume Ideas for Men

Hola all, Halloween is drawing near!

And I realized that I had given some options to my ladies as far as costumes they could put together from their closest, use a little DIY to make, or cheaply buy, however I offered no recourse for my guys! I apologize my dears, and I am here to fix the situation.

Here are a couple of last minute ideas for costumes you guys can be that won’t break the bank…

The Hobo

This little man did it best! This costume is easy an inventive. Wear a flannel shirt and some ripped jeans, add a little dirt effect for flair, get a styrofoam cup or cardboard sign and put a funny “will work for…” type statement on it and its one and done. Don’t forget your beard! Which can be drawn on or fake hair fuzzies glued on. Your perrogative!

The Zombie

Just like with the girl version, you can wear regular clothes and bloody-fy them. All you need to do is maybe put in some creepy contacts and add a little undead like makeup and you’re good to go.

Clark Kent

Superman! Dun dun dunnnnn!!! Well, not quite…but a much easier way to achieve an even cooler costume. All you need here is a suit and some “nerd glasses” (an easy way to get these is to pop the lenses out of the ones given for 3D movies…perfection). Open up the suit slightly to reveal a shirt with a superman logo on it, just so everyone knows you’re a superhero in disguise. You can easily buy a cheap superman shirt or make your own from a basic tee and an iron on.

The Fireman

Probably one of the easiest to achieve. Especially if you’ve got a nice bod. Boots, pants, suspenders, oiled torso, and a fire hat. One and done.

And there it is! Hopefully I have inspired some good, quick, and easy last minute costume ideas for my men out there. Stay tuned for more men-friendly fashion & advice next week!

Until Next Time
