Dude Fashion for Spring!

For those of you close to me, you already know. Those of you who are just readers/followers (Thank you for your support <3) you don’t know. I have recently taken on a new job, a coveted job for any college sophomore, a buying job. In the men’s department.

Heading in I knew very little about the changing trends as I’ve rarely studied the guy’s side. As my first month comes to a close, I’m feeling more confident and educated. I know very few truly styling men in my life, and I wish more straight guys would care about style, but alas, the world can’t be perfect.

Here are a few men’s fashions I’ve noticed for the upcoming season.

1. Brights

Similarly to femme fashion, bright colors and “color blocking” are a necessity.

Where to go for all your bright basics? American Apparel seems to be the winner for pricing and functionality.

2. Business Casual

This is one men’s trend that I absolutely adore, and I can’t stress it enough. A man in jeans, a button front shirt with sleeves rolled up and maybe a vest or a bowtie=SEX.

Not to objectify, but I think Keiko Lynn’s boyfriend is a perfect example of how every straight man should dress.

In real life, this is a simple style for even straight men to follow. Places to shop for this look? Forever 21, H&M, and Express.

3. On the Seas

While nautical is like, a spring staple similar to florals, this yer it’s taking on a new approach. Ofcourse, boat shoes are a nice addition to your shoe collection, navy stripes are coveted in larger fronts. Windbreaker jackets (Even without the wind) are a must have.

So, my few men out there reading, what are your thoughts?

R&Em Spring 2011

One recent stormy NYC evening I attended the Rebecca Minkoff R&Em Spring 2011 handbag party held in Chelsea. The event was an experience, bringing together some of the top bloggers of the NYC area. The party was in honor of the release of their spring lookbook featuring miss Keiko Lynn, who I personally follow on BlogLovin and am hugely in love with.

I walked in to my jacket being taken, hugs and kisses from friends, and champagne being handed to me. Fruit and pastries were also available as guests mingled, oggling the new collection.

It was so great to see Yanil and Janique, who I’ve both seen rather recently. It was also great to meet even more amazing bloggers, including Nicole of Black Shoes Diary and Clotaire of Spenderella who’s an international blogger!

As you can see, we’re all clutching our brand new gifts, courtesy of Rebecca Minkoff. Yanil and I both opted for the same black satchel, while Clotaie and Nicole for straw bags and clutches.The event also boasted bouquets of flowers for us to build ourselves. We could pick from unbloomed tuplis, roses, babies breath, and other spring flowers to brighten the stormy air.

The rest of the collection was stunning, a perfect mix of punk meets classics with studding, prints, furs, and pinks.

Totally dying for these faux fur bags….

All of these great bags are sold exclusively at Macy’s and Macy’s.com, and are fairly well priced.

It was an amazing experience and I had so much fun!
