Best Dressed Men: 72nd Golden Globes Awards


Kit Harington - Giorgio Armani / Eddie Redmayne - Gucci / Matt Bomer - Ralph Lauren

The 72nd Annual Golden Globes Awards just ended & with that another night of amazing fashion on the red carpet comes to an end. A big trend for the men was straying away from the traditional black suit. Seen on the red carpet this year were a lot of midnight blue hues as well as velvet pieces. Definitely not your typical black tie affair.

For the guys, my pick of the three best dressed were Eddie Redmayne, Kit Harington & Matt Bomer. All three embraced an alternative option for formalwear. For a while now I've been admiring Eddie Redmayne's suit game. From the second I saw Redmayne's Burberry look from the 2014 Met Gala, Redmayne has become a favorite of mine.

What do you think of my three picks for 'Best Dressed Men' for the 72nd Annual Golden Globes Awards? Who were some of your favorites?

Kick Start to NYFW

Yesterday, Mercedes Benz Fashion Week unofficially kicked off with some of the best menswear collections being previewed to fashion's top editors & stylists at Industria Superstudio in the West Village. While NYFW does not officially start until today, the collections shown yesterday are an exciting preview of what is to come over the next week. Two of the collections that stood out to me were Jack Spade & David Hart. Both integrated floral prints into their collections which could possibly be a trend that will be all over the runway. Jack Spade presented a collection with a main focus on suiting & jackets while David Hart reinvented 1950's chic with pique polos & short sleeved shirts. Check out the images below for a look at yesterdays Spring/Summer 15 preview.

Blame it all on the sweltering heat that seems to be engulfing the US right now, but I have seemed to try to avoid at all costs anything long sleeved. While some of us may be lucky to get away with it at work, I mostly recommend to rock these looks post 9-5 as I feel you should always dress for what you want to become in work & in life. 

Short-sleeved collard shirts are a perfect way to beat the heat while still looking polished & put together. The best part of the short-sleeved shirt is that it can easily transition with your day & never look out of place. From a morning coffee run, up until a dinner with loved ones, you'll never looked under dressed in the following selections. A great style of shirt that I've been really digging & seeing everywhere are popovers. Popover shirts are kind of like your traditional shirt in which there are buttons on the front, but these shirts stop halfway, adding an air of ease and comfort for those who have an aversion to traditional looks, for example the Gant Rugger Cotton Oxford Popover pictured above. Try to stick to cotton or other lightweight fabrics like linen to keep extra cool as the temperatures keep getting higher.
