Hey guys, don’t you get it? There is more to fashion than sweaters and jeans!

men fashion

A good friend of mine asked me to write a post on men’s fashion. Who am I to decline such a request? According to friend X the average man doesn’t seem to realise that there are better (much much better!) looks out there than the oh so typical jeans-t-shirt-sneakers look. I don’t know about you, dear readers, but I think my friend has a really good point!

The average male student at my university looks like this:
• blue/grey/black jeans: DULL!
• t-shirt with cliché print: DRAB!
• Superdry or Abercrombie & Fitch sweater: BORING!
• Pair of worn out All Stars: YAAAAAAWN!

Seriously guys! Can’t you see that is just the most boring, uninteresting and lifeless look EVER! It is basically a whole lot of nothing! Am I being harsh? Well, I’m sorry if I offended you, but sometimes the truth needs to be told! Deal with it!

However, Fashion Food and Flirts wouldn’t be Fashion,Food and Flirts, if I didn’t have some great tips for all of you. Let’s pimp your wardrobe, shall we? 🙂
The holidays are coming up. The perfect time to invest in some classy and festive clothes, you can actually wear every single day of the year. Brace yourselves fellas, we are going to make real gentlemen out of you!
A suit is the epitome of style and elegance. It is perfect for Christmas and New Year’s Eve but the individual pieces can also be worn all year round. Why don’t you wear a waistcoat on top of your t-shirt or jumper? Or a suit jacket? It can transform something really mundane into something extraordinarily edgy!

It’s all about colour!

Question: Are most men colourblind? Because, hellooooo, there are actually more colours on this planet beside grey, blue and black.
This burgundy red suit for instance. Classy, elegant and drop dead gorgeous!men fashion 3

Do you want to touch me?

Mix and match various types of fabrics that beg to be touched! What could be more arousing than a soft velvet jacket?men fashion2µ

Think Print!

Baroque, checkers, psychedelic colourblocking or leopard print (yes, leopard print!) As long as it’s bold, big and beautiful!

It’s time to SHINE!

It's time to SHINE!

Black and gold together is without a doubt the coolest combination of the season. It’s glamourous, luxurious and it adds that little touch of drama to an ordinary day at the office. If you want to take it even one step further, opt for a Baroque-style outfit in black and gold.

(Or as I like to call it: Barock ’n roll 😉 )

Still not convinced of the awesomeness of a black and gold Baroque outfit? Look at Dolce & Gabbana’s  fall/ winter collection for inspiration.

However, most of us – aka 99% of the population- can’t afford to buy a $26,600 embellished dress. So that is why I went shopping yesterday to see whether it was possible to find a low budget black and gold Baroque outfit… and guess what? I FOUND IT!!  For just 25 euros I bought this cute baroque peplum blouse at New Look. It will go perfectly  with my last year’s gold jeans !(yes, you’ve read that correctly: I am the proud owner of  gold jeans)

In short, this winter I am going to SHINE! And I want YOU to shine with me! Because when we shine, we will always find our way through darkness.
