Posted by    |    December 22nd, 2011 at 12:39 pm

When the weather turns colder, men have to retire their shorts and flip-flop combos and head into sweater territory.  Truth be told, many men just don’t have a clue what wardrobe staples they need for winter to look stylish, warm, and also like they aren’t trying too hard.  There are a few essentials that every man needs in his closet to make it through the colder months that can be accessorized with other items to create a fuller wardrobe.  Not only will these warm looks keep a body toasty, but it will keep all eyes on it as well. Read on below for what to buy, and a few inspiration photos on how to put it all together.

How To Wear Yellow in the Wintertime

Posted by    |    December 20th, 2011 at 9:41 am

It’s all things sunny and bright, and yet we seem to reserve it mainly for the spring and summer, instead of when we need it most: the dreary wintertime.  Yellow can lift your spirits just by looking at it, so why not find a way to wear it during the coldest months of the year?

Here are a few tips when venturing into sunshine territory with your wardrobe:

  • Yellow looks best in the winter with darker color combinations.  Yellow looks stunning with navy, darker neutrals, and black (if it’s the right shade of yellow-you don’t want to be a bumble bee).  Dark denim and yellow are smashing together, and a yellow skirt or dress are an unexpected pop of color this time of year.
  • Avoid yellow tights unless you want your legs to look jaundiced.  Some people can pull this look off, but not many.
  • Yellow accessories are a great way to get noticed. I saw a shocking yellow scarf at Forever 21 yesterday, and it took everything in me not to buy it and wear it with my distressed denim shirt.  Yellow earrings and necklaces add a fun touch to any outfit, and yellow Hunter boots are worth the investment. A yellow coat may be a bit much for most, but it can be a fun sussie to treat yourself to.

Now that you have a few guidelines to follow, how about some pics for inspiration?
