Today I want to speak to you about how clothes especially suits should fit. We have all seen those men in ill fitting “court date” suits, to me they scream I don’t know how this whole dress up thing works. So, let me just run to Stein Mart and get something real quick. Although places like Stein Mart have awesome clothing for men. Most men forget the one key to looking great. That one key is fitting. Look, we all have various body types and should embrace them. It’s what makes us unique and special, so you must dress for your body type. Just because you’re a larger guy doesn’t mean your suit has to be oversized! You can get a suit to fit you the way most suits are supposed to….well. If you don’t do custom suiting and you buy off the rack, I suggest finding a blazer that fits in the shoulders and chest. The sleeves and mid section can be altered to you specific taste. For me it’s important to have things fit my body right, it gives off the impression that I care because I do. When it comes to buying suit pants or any pants at that, make sure they fit in the waist and thigh. You can get a taper done if you like the legs skinnier for a more modern fit (like I have pictured in the post). Listen, don’t let your size or society get in the way of looking your very best at all times. You can look great in anything as long as the fit is right, not color, not pattern but the FIT! #StyleHasNoSize
Remember fellas they say a well tailored suit is to women what lingerie is to men……let that sink in for minute!
I’m so happy this cold weather is done for now! I’m sprung on Spring and the warm weather is casting a huge smile on my face. I’m ready to be done with the scarfs, wool and sweaters. I’m prepared to take on the warm weather with some cotton suits and linen shirts (as pictured here). I know I can’t be the only one excited about Spring, the colors of nature start to enhance and bring art back in our life. It’s truly beautiful to walk around and see the flowers bloom, birds singing and bees buzzin’. Enjoy your second day of Spring! Be sure to get out and have an iced coffee 🙂 #sprungonspring
Let me talk to you about self love. The best relationship we have is the one with ourselves, it’s hard to be nice to others if you’re constantly mean to yourself. When you love yourself you’re more likely to show love to others. Loving yourself can change your life in so many ways….it will help you get that confidence you needed to wear that outfit, talk to that stranger or even get that dream job. Love is unconditional, so love yourself with no boundaries or conditions. You’re body is going to change, life is going to give you ups and downs but don’t steer away from your goals of self love. You’re unique and one of a kind, you just gotta believe it 🙂 #MotivationalMonday
Purple is my favorite color and always has been since I was a kid. I remember being fascinated with Prince’s purple rain! I loved seeing him in his purple velvet jacket….it made me feel like it was okay for a male to not only like the color purple but also wear it. So when I saw these purple suede wingtips in 2014 I was in love! I purchased them with no regret although I don’t wear them often they are still one of my favorite pairs of shoes and grapes are one of my favorite fruits. Coincidence?! I think not 🙂
