Happy New Year!
With a new year comes new trends on the horizon. Here are a few trends I’m looking forward to exploring this year.
1. Super Stripes. These aren’t just ordinary stripes. They’re a lot bigger and bolder (perfect for the new year). This dress is a bold look, if you want to tone it down, try to wear this trend in a top or a scarf.
2. Unconventional Khaki. Usually when I think about khaki, I associate it with school uniforms (blah). Unconventional khaki isn’t boring. It’s innovative and exciting. This mini dress is perfect for rocking this traditional trend in a new way.
3. Color of the Year: Greenery. Pantone has named the color of the year Greenery. It represents nature and new beginnings. To make this hue more streamlined, try pairing it with a tailored piece.

I’ve got a “three piece rule”that I’ve been following for a while. It’s basically a rule that states you need to add a third article of clothing to your outfit to make it more complex. That third piece can be a blazer, vest or one of my favorites: a sleeveless jacket. The third piece should make tie your outfit together. I got this sleeveless jacket on sale for just $5.50 at Tj Maxx. You can’t beat that!

Happy Valentine’s Day! I’ve always loved this holiday. Whether you are single or in a relationship, it’s a day that is dedicated to celebrating love. I do believe that we should always take the time to celebrate love, but today feel free to remind someone you love them by writing them a note or simply spending quality time with them. Feel free to show yourself some love too. After all, you deserve it.

Purple can be overwhelming if you are not accustomed to wearing it. If that’s the case, I suggest that you start small. Start with a purple pocket square or tie and then work your way up to a shirt or a pair of chinos. Here are a few of my favorite ways of men wearing purple.
