Spring 2014 Men’s Fashion: Dos and Don’ts

Published March 26, 2014 by The Feminist

With spring in the air, I think it is about time we focus on what we want men to wear this spring/summer. Because no matter how fabulous you may look in your new outfit, all of that glamour will disappear, if the man walking next to you looks like a boring drab.

The following list is my personal view on this season’s trends. So dear male readers, take pen and paper because here are the dos and don’ts for this spring!

Do: Flowers here, Flower there, Flowers everywhere

What better way to embrace spring fashion than by introducing some flowers into your wardrobe?

I love this nonchalant, casual version of flower print in the collection of Dries Van Noten, because even the biggest fashion nitwit will be able to pull off this look. (No offence 😉 )

And if you want to try something bolder, go for this oriental floral print by Prada.

Important side note: Make sure you don’t look like Hugh Hefner.

That’s a no no.

Do: Think Pink

To all the pussies out there, who are afraid to wear pink: Start simple with a couple of pink accents instead of going for the full pink look. This outfit from Versace shows you how it is done.

Once you’ve grown accustomed to showing some pink, why not try a pink jacket. This sporty yet classy coat from Lanvin is absolutely fabulous and über cool.

And last but not last, for the dare devils among you who like to shock with an overdose of pink:  what about this flashy pink Tom Ford suit?

Don’t: Shorter than Short Shorts

I consider myself an admirer of the fit and muscular male body and I am usually a fan of men showing some of that fabulously tanned skin, but – dear God!- short shorts are just not flattering. Even the handsomest of men with the most amazing thighs would not be able to pull this off. It’s simply… too… short.

Don’t: Tune in for the Tunic

No matter how much they may have appeared on the runway this season; the well-tailored tunic is just a hideous example of experimental fashion gone wrong.

I mean, what the hell is this?

Fifty shades of sunglasses

Published April 2, 2013 by The Feminist

See what I did there? 😉 Deft pun aside, this summer will be all – and when I say all, I do mean ALL- about shades! They provide an instant glam factor to any outfit and turns you into the perfect summer babe, even without a perfect summer tan.

This summer’s sunglass mantra is “the bolder the better”. Some designers’ sunglasses were so bold, I couldn’t quite figure out whether they were incredibly cool or incredibly ridiculous. As always, there’s a fine line between very vogue and very rogue.

But I do like to take risks, especially when it comes to fashion, and I truly believe there are some fashion daredevils among you readers as well! I could give you a list of all the new fabulous shades out there, but like I said, that would be a very long list. So instead of giving you a list of 50 sunglasses, ranging from pretty to pretty ludicrous, I’m giving you my ultimate top 3:

1) Egg-celent view

Round sunglasses aren’t just for Harry Potter freaks and people suffering from Easter melancholia, they are for every young and fashionable woman with an edge.

2) Catwoman

There is a catwoman waiting to purr inside all of us and these sunglasses are the perfect way to embrace your inner Halle Berry. They are classy but not safe. They are sexy but not slutty. They are simply perfect. (Especially those from Dior!) Miaow!

3) Pretty little flowers

This is by far my favorite shade-trend: Sunglasses decorated with flowers. Whether you opt for very graphical plastic flowers, like the ones from Prada, or frivolous tiny florets, like the shades from Anna Sui, one thing is certain: these flowers will not wither, just like your amazing sense of style! 😉

real gentlemen wear suits

Published October 10, 2012 by The Feminist

What could be better than a hot guy? A hot guy in a suit of course!

I agree, a good-looking guy will also look good  in a plain T-shirt, a leather jacket or a sweater, but let’s be honest, all these clothes dilute in comparison to a sexy well-tailored suit!  I guess my passion for this garment goes back to a previous generation of men: when chivalry still existed, when men paid for our meals, bought us flowers and opened doors for us. When men still dressed up when they wanted to go out and wore hats instead of those hideous hoodies.  I’m talking about real GENTLEMEN and true Hollywood GLAMOUR!

Just look at Chuck Bass and you know I’m right!
