How to Go Monochromatic for Fall

Wearing one color head to toe is a very flattering concept. You look taller and leaner, streamlining your appearance. So how can you take one color dressing from blasé to chic? Follow our do’s and don’ts and you can’t go wrong!

Do introduce another color with fun and interesting accessories to add a touch of pizzaz. Try a fun statement bag or an interesting pair of shoes. This is a great time to focus on the details, as the single color will act as a great canvas to really make them stand out!

Don’t introduce a whole rainbow of colors in your accessories. Not only does that take away from the monochromatic concept, it also takes away from you!

Do play with different shades. No reason to go too matchy-matchy, play up light and dark shades in the same family. Try jewel tones and pastels or rich and soft neutrals.

Don’t get colors that are close together but not exact. While you can wear head to toe in the exact same shade and look like you stepped out of a magazine, you can’t really achieve that effect with colors that look similar but aren’t the same. It just gives the impression that you tried too hard to make it work, but probably didn’t. Think of a suit you bought separately- while the pants may be navy and the jacket might also be navy, each designer plays with a slightly different shade so pairing two different pieces together isn’t a great idea.

Do concentrate on fit. The slimming concept is lost if your garments are ill-fitting. We’re not suggesting it needs to be tight, just that fit you perfectly.

Don’t worry so much about what everyone else is wearing, wear what looks good on you!

Men’s Fashion Trend – What to Look For in Fall Leather

One trend that is huge in both men’s and women’s fashion this Fall is leather. Whether you are talking about accessories, shoes, or jackets and coats, leather is one of the most sought-after materials in fashion. Aside from being very durable, warm, and resistant to wind, leather has the ability to last much longer than any other coat than you may have. Most jacket leathers are made from either cow or sheep skin. There are also several different types of leather used when making a men’s leather coat. Glove leather is described as a very soft and pliable leather, which is similar to the leather that gloves are made of, hence the name. Embossed leather has a pattern or image permanently stamped or pressed into the leather. Distressed leather is the process by which the leather is made to look old or “vintage”, even though it still may be perfectly new.
