Death to Tennis Men’s Spring 2019

Summertime was the prevailing theme for William Watson and Vincent Oshin, the duo behind Death to Tennis. The designers, who are both British, were feeling nostalgic and a bit homesick so they looked to old beachside photographs to inform their lineup, which they said is one of their most colorful collections to date.
They leaned into the old and new, utilizing a color palette consisting of royal blue, purple, yellow, olive red and navy that brought to mind Ralph Lauren and Cross Colours from the Nineties.
These colors lent new life to core items such as graphic T-shirts, hoodies and the McCarthy jacket, which Justin Bieber popularized. They showed these signatures alongside cargo pants with minimal pockets, boxy button-up shirts, cotton parkas and shirt jackets. A long, hooded, colorblocked parka that grazed the ground was a standout.
The suit or matching set was another primary component. Models wore tracksuits, relaxed cotton suits and boxy shirts styled with slightly baggy pants. It was a nice take on tailored pieces that felt hip but not too trendy.
Death to Tennis is known for its original prints and this season it presented a camo pattern, a polo motif and a paint-splattered print.
Last season, the brand put on a

Kenneth Nicholson Men’s Spring 2019

Kenneth Nicholson pulls from a varied bag of interests. The Houston native is as motivated by 18th-century dress as he is by outfits from “Soul Train” and military uniforms — after attending the Academy of Art in San Francisco, Nicholson spent a one-year stint in the Navy before he was honorably discharged. But his overall interest is in expanding the boundaries of men’s wear.
“Historically, men haven’t been restricted to just a shirt and pants. They’ve had more options,” Nicholson said. “I like to edify people and shake things up.”
He divided his collection into three chapters. The first chapter was a stark white, which Nicholson said was void of color to express sadness. Models wore cotton and linen long-sleeved shirtdresses with subtle swing hems, white lace shirts paired with cream high-waisted pants, and a brocade jacket with an exaggerated lapel coupled with a matching skirt. References to royalty were sprinkled throughout the lineup. Some models wore sashes, others wore crowns and a couple of the more structured, beaded looks with mock necks, nipped waists and peplums, which were highlights from the collection, brought to mind regalness.
The second chapter, which signaled better memories and featured more color, was the strongest. Nicholson doubled

Willy Chavarria Men’s Spring 2019

Models running wind sprints and stretching in colorful soccer gear on the runway prior to the show created the ideal introduction for Willy Chavarria’s new collaboration with Danish soccer brand Hummel.
The collection was defined by the use of bright colors and long boxy silhouettes in shorts and tops that paid homage to the designer’s main line. His creative use of the Hummel logo and soccer uniform staples such as numbers and insignias turned them into streetwear-infused details.
The collaboration will also serve to offer sponsorships to New York City soccer players with documented and undocumented U.S. citizens offering support to immigrants, another key element of this season for Chavarria.
His spin on soccerwear served as part one of a two-part spring collection.
For his main line, Chavarria said he pulled from Latino culture of the early Aughts on the East and West Coasts. The “baggy silhouettes” from Venice and Culver City were juxtaposed with the “long rise pants tucked into Timberlands” that defined the urban landscape in the Bronx and Harlem in that era.
The nostalgia kicked into high gear with Chavarria’s take on Polo Sport references: upside-down American flags, yellow trenchcoats and the word America printed upside down on the front of sweatshirts.

The Kooples Men’s Spring 2019

Alexandre Elicha’s collection was all about punk — and creature comforts — with lots of soft, distressed and worn-in fabrics and oversized silhouettes.
Highlights included a worn-in cotton trench with fraying pocket edges, a striped sweater dotted with holes and a soft tartan bomber jacket and trousers.
Thick cotton T-shirts referenced the Sex Pistols — muses for this collection — while a check suit with fat lapels was adorned with pins that had punk-era slogans such as “No Future.” To complete the era’s references there were cargo pants and jackets covered in a camouflage pattern.
Life isn’t all about rebellion, however, and Elicha cooked up fluid shirts with Italian Baroque prints that were blended with panther and leopard print motifs, which added a sophisticated edge to the collection.

Neil Barrett Men’s Spring 2019

In an adventurous, sea and surf-faring mood, Neil Barrett, who has a thing about male uniforms, set out to explore the notion of contemporary masculinity, with the collection’s emblem a Hawaiian-style flower that was never girly.
The designer worked photographic treatments of anemones onto utilitarian macs, T-shirts and sweatshirts, placing them at the breast and shoulder in place of military emblems and medals.
Some of the prints had a strong Pop Art feel, others came graphically sliced, with shadowy black prints of the flowers staining a range of looks. But mainly it added a surf vibe, opening the gates for a strong water-sport theme.
Barrett in this highly wearable collection mixed his usual color palette of sand, beige, navy, gray and black with bright colors associated with surfwear.
His signature Nineties aesthetic was intact, folding in scuba underlayers and jackets inspired by the hi-tech dry suits worn by deep sea divers. The cut of the trenches, with their dropped shoulders and rounded shapes, were even based on their lines.
The designer sprinkled in sure-sell cargo pants cut like joggers, and cool dressier looks, like a gray tux with a Nineties fit.
Moving between urban and sportswear moods, the outerwear was ever strong and plentiful, with the

Man Men’s Spring 2019

The single theme running through the three collections at the Topman-sponsored Man group show was dressing up. From Stefan Cooke’s off-kilter elegance to Art School’s High Concept Characters and Rottingdean Bazaar’s frivolous costumes, the season was certainly theatrical.
STEFAN COOKE
Cooke, winner of the H&M young designer prize and the L’Oréal Professionnel Creative Award, founded the brand with partner Jake Burt after graduating from the Central Saint Martins M.A. course last year.
His second outing for Man was a nostalgic exploration of the summer holidays of his youth, eagerly anticipated but ending in a state of ennui, with days spent doing nothing but indulging creative impulses and foraging through the dressing-up box. Maybe throwing a feather boa on with jeans and a T-shirt, maybe borrowing an older brother’s suit.
That meant a focus on tailoring and outerwear, with suits embellished with inlaid Perspex studs in naïve floral clusters, a jazzy tartan ensemble topped with a trompe l’oeil cable-knit vest, and well-cut trousers styled with striking ostrich feather belts. It was a sophisticated collection that established Cooke as a designer with a strong point of view.

Your Spring and Summer Neutrals

Every wardrobe needs some neutrals to calm the eye and soul, and create versatile outfit combinations. The degree to which you incorporate neutrals into your style is as personal as your favourite foods. Some people have a neutral-rich style and others don’t. Some prefer to wear dark neutrals in the colder months, light neutrals in the warmer months, and some don’t differentiate between the seasons. Some stick to one or two neutrals at a time while others wear them all together. Some only wear cool-toned dark neutrals. Some only wear warm and light neutrals. And some mix it up depending on their mood. It’s all good as long as it feels and looks right on this current leg of your style journey.

I wear the same light and dark neutrals year round, although I tend to lighten things up even more in Spring and Summer. I used to wear a lot of black and white outfits, but have slowly replaced many of my black wardrobe items with navy and ink blue versions. I still wear black and white looks, but these days throw in some tomato red, citron, denim blue or blush to break it up. I wear quite a bit of blue and white. I don’t wear grey because it makes me unhappy, and I’m completely committed to yellow gold as my metal. Cognac has disappeared from my wardrobe at the moment.

My most important Spring and Summer neutral is optical WHITE. I feel fabulous in white and wear a lot of it. It picks up the white in my hair, looks fresh, adds crispness as well as a soft and pretty integrity that I crave in an outfit. It’s also a great neutral to pair with non-neutrals like pastels and sour brights, which I wear a lot of too.

White is followed by navy and ink blue, all sorts of denim blue, a little cream, bone, tan, some black, a smattering of pearl grey and olive, and gold. Here are all my Spring and Summer neutral wardrobe items. The exact pieces are represented in the collection.

I’m adding blush pink as a pseudo Spring and Summer neutral. It’s not officially a neutral, but it functions like one for my style. Blush shoes and bags have somewhat replaced my need for metallic footwear and bags. Here are my Spring and Summer blush wardrobe items.

Warm colours and clear brights look best against my complexion, yet most of my neutrals are on the cool side of the spectrum. I do effectively warm them up with gold and sour brights, which I guess is what prevents them from bossing me around.

Over to you. What are your Spring and Summer neutrals, and how do they differ from your cold-weather neutrals? Has your neutral palette changed over time?

Narciso Rodriguez RTW Spring 2019

Monday evening would find Narciso Rodriguez, like much of the industry, heading to Brooklyn for the CFDA Awards. Unlike everyone else, he alone would be honored with the organization’s Lifetime Achievement Award, after 20 years in business, which he marked last season with characteristically low-key celebrations.
But in the morning, it was business as usual — yet something of a new usual for Rodriguez. In this most eclectic of official calendar weeks, Rodriguez showed his spring 2019 collection, one of only a few designers to do so, in a presentation that retained the intimacy with which he had shown fall in his Gramercy Park headquarters. This time, he moved to the first floor Goethe-Institut in the same building, the shift allowing him to more than double last season’s audience count from 20 to about 50.
It’s a lovely way to show, and Rodriguez delivered a strong collection. Not surprisingly given the anniversary/award moment, he was in a reflective mood. “Somewhere along the line, the collection got very pared down and much more graphic,” he said. “I started to look back at things I had done in the past, and I found this beautiful picture of Amber Valletta from ages ago.

3 Spring Preparations Landlords Should Make

As the weather warms, the housing market starts to pick up and people begin looking for new properties to lease. This presents a great opportunity for landlords to capitalize on the transition from winter to spring and get ahead of both administrative and seasonal maintenance of their properties.

In this post, we’ll discuss three of the most common things a landlord may experience during spring, including new tenants, lease renewals, exterior property maintenance, and how to get ahead of any issues these changes might cause.

Influx of Tenants in the Market for Rentals

Although lease term periods can differ from property to property and from tenant to tenant, spring and summer are popular times for people to move to new properties or renew their leases.

During spring, landlords will need to prepare for an increase in rental applications, property viewings, and new leases.

You should also be aware that the housing market tends to get more competitive in spring, which means many landlords raise their rental prices. Be cautious when raising your rent, however, because you don’t want to have the rent price for your properties skyrocket over competitors’ properties in your area, potentially pushing prospective tenants to either rent elsewhere or abandon renting altogether for home buying.

To get ahead despite high competition, do some research to see what the market trends are like in your area to gauge what your competitors are charging for rent and then adjust your fees accordingly. It might also help you to emphasize your amenities as a way of out-performing your competitors.

Renewing Lease Terms

If you have tenants who are set to renew their leases this season, it’s a good time to review your Residential Lease to see if everything is working for both you and your tenants.

Many landlords have meetings with their tenants prior to their renewal (usually 30 days to 60 days) to discuss the tenants’ experience living in the rental unit.

Some potential lease term topics you can discuss with your tenants before renewal include:

  • Changes to the property. Your tenants might want to paint their living space or replace or add electrical fixtures like outlets, lights, and lamps.
  • Changes to responsibilities. Many landlords will adjust their rent prices in exchange for the tenants taking on more responsibility for maintaining the property. For example, if a landlord rents the top and bottom floors of a house to separate tenants, they might make one responsible for lawn care in exchange for reducing their rent price.
  • Pet fees. You might want to revisit how much you charge for pet fees (whether it’s too much or too little), especially in cases where damage from your tenants’ pets has required you to replace things on your property or make repairs.

It’s important to listen to feedback from your tenants, especially if they have issues living in your rental property. It’s likely they want this living arrangement to work just as much as you do, so do what you can to engage in that relationship and foster goodwill with your tenants.

Prepare for Repair Notices

Warmer temperatures make it easier to inspect properties. It’s also a time when your tenants might be spending more times outdoors, which means they will be more likely to notice maintenance issues outside (like potholes in the parking lot or leaky eavestroughs).

To prevent your tenants from bombarding you with repair notices, consider conducting an exterior inspection of the property.

Some things to keep an eye out for during an exterior inspection would be:

  • Roof deterioration, including loose, missing, or broken shingles or holes that could lead to leaks and water damage when it rains
  • Punctures or debris in rain gutters that might prevent melting snow or water from running off (and make sure the downspouts are leading water away from the house or apartment building’s foundation)
  • Damage to house siding, including split or missing panels
  • Cracks in the pavement or driveway, which can lead to further erosion of the asphalt and more fractures if exposed to water

Of course, it’s unlikely you’ll catch everything pre-emptively, so getting maintenance calls from tenants is unavoidable. Just ensure that you prioritize habitability issues first, and make sure to always communicate with your tenants. At the very least, it’s good to let your tenants know their issues were heard and to provide an assurance that you’re going to handle their repairs in a timely manner.

The Importance of Planning as a Landlord

To prepare yourself for the changes that tend to come with spring (whether it’s new tenants, renewed tenants, or increased maintenance), you should always have a game plan in place, such as scheduling inspections and check-ins with your tenants.

Overall, it’s always a good idea as a landlord to foster open communication with your tenants so that landlord-tenant relationship works in both your favors.

16 Outfits That’ll Convince You to Go Matchy-Matchy for Spring

Call them co-ords or matching sets, complementary outfits are on the rise. In fact, fast-fashion giant Zara is dead set on making matching sets happen for spring. Just one look at the brand’s site and you’ll be seeing double. Sure, you can technically flaunt the pieces as separates but the brand obviously has other plans since almost all the pics feature complementary styling.

Spring 2018 was all about matching sets.

Versace Spring 2018, Zimmermann Spring 2018, Sonia Rykiel Spring 2018; Images: Imaxtree

But Zara is far from the only one taking part. In addition to sites like ASOS and & Other Stories that have dedicated sections for sets and two-piece outfits, the Spring 2018 shows were full of co-ords. Versace brought back some of its classic 90s prints and made sure to hit repeat as everything from shorts to bra tops to swimsuits synced up. Zimmermann was in full bloom mode for spring, presenting fresh florals on all manner of top and skirt or top and pant combos. And Sonia Rykiel had us dreaming of Mediterranean getaways with sets meant for catching some sun.

Coordination was key for Spring 2018.

Christian Siriano Spring 2018, Alexander McQueen Spring 2018, Temperley London Spring 2018; Images: Imaxtree

Christian Siriano’s co-ords featured tops with exaggerated sleeves and, occasionally, the bottoms boasted equally exaggerated hems. For going-out tops and skirts, no one beats Alexander McQueen where the sets were ruffle-centric. At Temperley London, the co-ords came layered with stripes covering stripes.

If you’re ready to try out the trend but worried about looking too one-note, just remember that not all co-ords complement each other to a T. Some sets have the patterns heading in different directions up top and on the bottoms or play with proportions so it doesn’t look like you’re rocking a one-piece. One of the best features of going matchy-matchy is you don’t have to spend time trying to decipher the fashion paradox of mixing prints (seriously, there’s a fine line between clashing and downright gaudy).

Pairing more voluminous bottoms with a tailored top adds structure to the outfit. The knotted self-belt is a fab design detail that emphasizes our blogger’s waistline. White open-toed shoes peeking out from under the trousers bookend the button-down. An on-trend circular bag, silver arm candy and large hoop earrings complete this elegant Spring look.

This is the reason I didn’t sleep well last weekend. Dan Simmons has written award winning Sci-Fi along with some truly scary genre fiction. But this. This is one of the scariest books I’ve read in forever. It was one of Simmon’s first forays into horror and it is something special. The story is beyond creepy, the bits of late 50’s early 60’s Americana are spot on, and it is terrifying. Yes, this story centers around a group of pre-teens facing the promise of a long summer of fun. The characters are not only exceptionally brought to life, but they are relatable, even when you root against them, bad guys being what they are. When a novel is written in such a way that you visualize every bit of it as it happens as if in a movie without even thinking about it (kind of like when you forget you’re reading subtitles ten minutes into a movie), it is worth savoring. But savoring can be hard when you are shivering.

 

WATCH: Incoming!

This has a whole lot going for it. It’s based on a true story. Gus Van Sant directs. And the line up includes Joaquin Phoenix, Jonah Hill, Carrie Brownstein, Jack Black, Rooney Maran, Beth Ditto, and Kim Gordon. That’s more than enough for me.

3 Spring Preparations Landlords Should Make

In this post, we’ll discuss three of the most common things a landlord may experience during spring, including new tenants, lease renewals, exterior property maintenance, and how to get ahead of any issues these changes might cause.

Although lease term periods can differ from property to property and from tenant to tenant, spring and summer are popular times for people to move to new properties or renew their leases.

During spring, landlords will need to prepare for an increase in rental applications, property viewings, and new leases.

You should also be aware that the housing market tends to get more competitive in spring, which means many landlords raise their rental prices. Be cautious when raising your rent, however, because you don’t want to have the rent price for your properties skyrocket over competitors’ properties in your area, potentially pushing prospective tenants to either rent elsewhere or abandon renting altogether for home buying.

To get ahead despite high competition, do some research to see what the market trends are like in your area to gauge what your competitors are charging for rent and then adjust your fees accordingly. It might also help you to emphasize your amenities as a way of out-performing your competitors.

  • Changes to responsibilities. Many landlords will adjust their rent prices in exchange for the tenants taking on more responsibility for maintaining the property. For example, if a landlord rents the top and bottom floors of a house to separate tenants, they might make one responsible for lawn care in exchange for reducing their rent price.
  • Pet fees. You might want to revisit how much you charge for pet fees (whether it’s too much or too little), especially in cases where damage from your tenants’ pets has required you to replace things on your property or make repairs.

It’s important to listen to feedback from your tenants, especially if they have issues living in your rental property. It’s likely they want this living arrangement to work just as much as you do, so do what you can to engage in that relationship and foster goodwill with your tenants.

Prepare for Repair Notices

Warmer temperatures make it easier to inspect properties. It’s also a time when your tenants might be spending more times outdoors, which means they will be more likely to notice maintenance issues outside (like potholes in the parking lot or leaky eavestroughs).

To prevent your tenants from bombarding you with repair notices, consider conducting an exterior inspection of the property.

Some things to keep an eye out for during an exterior inspection would be:

  • Roof deterioration, including loose, missing, or broken shingles or holes that could lead to leaks and water damage when it rains
  • Punctures or debris in rain gutters that might prevent melting snow or water from running off (and make sure the downspouts are leading water away from the house or apartment building’s foundation)
  • Damage to house siding, including split or missing panels
  • Cracks in the pavement or driveway, which can lead to further erosion of the asphalt and more fractures if exposed to water

Of course, it’s unlikely you’ll catch everything pre-emptively, so getting maintenance calls from tenants is unavoidable. Just ensure that you prioritize habitability issues first, and make sure to always communicate with your tenants. At the very least, it’s good to let your tenants know their issues were heard and to provide an assurance that you’re going to handle their repairs in a timely manner.

The Importance of Planning as a Landlord

To prepare yourself for the changes that tend to come with spring (whether it’s new tenants, renewed tenants, or increased maintenance), you should always have a game plan in place, such as scheduling inspections and check-ins with your tenants.

Overall, it’s always a good idea as a landlord to foster open communication with your tenants so that landlord-tenant relationship works in both your favors.

18 Reasons Spring Is Still Sweater Weather

Spring likes to play by its own rules. It can be bordering 70 degrees one day, then plummet to the mid-50s by the end of the week. That’s why it’s vital your sweater game remains strong. Whether you’re covering up a simple tank top or a frilly spring dress, the key to layering this season is lightweight fabrics or open weaves. Wool is allowed in small doses, just make sure a decent part of your pullover’s content comes from other sources. There are also sweaters begging to be worn solo. And there’s no need to stick to spring-appropriate brights, expand your color horizons by including earth tones instead of relying on pastels.

Obviously, your stockpile of all-enveloping knits that rival the puffiest puffer won’t work. So here are 18 lightweight options to refresh your spring sweater supply.

8 shaggy pixie cuts that’ll convince you to chop off your hair this spring

8 shaggy pixie cuts that’ll convince you to chop off your hair this spring


8 shaggy pixie cuts that’ll convince you to chop off your hair this spring

Every time I get a trim, I shudder at the thought of losing more than two inches. Whether I like it or not, long hair is my security blanket. Despite that, I still feel total envy for anyone with a pixie. There’s no denying the power of a short haircut—it brings attention to your facial features better than any variation of the lob or bob. It’s a statement in and of itself. Kate Hudson, a new adopter of the look, has said that chopping off all her hair was freeing. The added bonus is that the pixie is one of the most versatile, flattering, and classic haircuts of all time.

“A shaggy pixie cut is one of the most popular styles for spring, if you are willing to give it a go,” explains celebrity hairstylist Arsen Gurgov, founder of the Arsen Gurgov Salon in New York City. “What I like best about this haircut is how it frames the face and enhances the cheekbones.”

While it works for most (if not all) face shapes, Gurgov says it’s a particularly great fit for anyone with thin or fine hair. And aside from regular salon visits every few weeks to keep the shape of the haircut, it’s pretty low-maintenance. “A shaggy pixie is a wash-and-go style,” notes Gurgov. “For everyday styling, you can add some texture with a styling cream or pomade, but avoid using too much. It will weigh the hair down and make it look greasy. Less really is more in this case.”

Keep scrolling to see eight celebrities who have worn it best.

Jennifer Lawrence

J.Law’s choppy haircut features more length on the top and in the front, mimicking the appearance of side-swept bangs.

Katie Holmes

Michael Stewart/Getty Images

The soft, zigzag part makes this pixie all the more modern.

Kaley Cuoco

Jon Kopaloff/Getty Images

Kaley Cuoco’s haircut features a significant amount of length on top. The tousled, wind-blown texture brings out the variations of length within the cut and even makes the hair look thicker.

Kris Jenner

Steve Granitz/Getty Images

This is Kris Jenner’s signature haircut, and she stuck with it for years. The momager’s shaggy pixie cut always consists of volume on top and longer layers framing her face.

Janelle Monáe

Jon Kopaloff/Getty Images

Uneven strands around the forehead—some longer, some shorter and choppier—give this haircut an edgier vibe.

Greta Gerwig

VALERIE MACON/Getty Images

If the idea of chopping all your hair off is still too jarring, try a haircut that falls between a bob and pixie, like Greta Gerwig. You can wear it wavy with a center part and forward-facing, or push it to the back to get an idea of what a true choppy pixie would look like.

Viola Davis

George Pimentel/Getty Images

While Kris Jenner prefers a tousled, spiky texture, Viola Davis is known for wearing her cut sleek, emphasizing the length on top.

Kate Hudson

Steve Granitz/Getty Images

Take the full plunge like Hudson and ask for less length on top, but still enough for texturizing paste to add movement to your hair. This picture is your best example.

Link Love: New Spring Toppers

Spring has finally arrived here, but we still get plenty of chilly days that require some kind of topper. If you are looking for a new Spring topper, then you might find some inspiration here:

Fab Links from Our Members

efbgen wanted to share this NY Times article featuring a gentleman who knits sweaters with familiar landscapes and then poses in front of them.

As several forum members are doing a closet edit, The Cat thought this blog post might be of interest.

Blogger Christina Brown participated in Dove’s self-esteem project to help her daughter develop the confidence she needs to blossom in life. Ledonna N. thought it was a great read.

She also enjoyed this interview with Jenny LeFlore of Mama Fresh, “a community of Fresh Mamas who pick up their little ones and explore the city” (Chicago).

Vildy recommends watching PAQ, a popular YouTube series about street fashion and sneaker culture: “I started exploring their series of short video challenges and was completely charmed. If they’re not having fun with fashion, I don’t know who is. I liked that within the strict rules about what is cool now — judges are often within the same esthetic and might even be wearing the same exact sneaker model — each stays true to his own style image.”

Style Scenario: Spring Temptation – Finding the Middle Ground

What are you going to wear? Sometimes it’s good to look at a few suggestions then add your own tweaks and ideas. That’s what these are for. In late March we brought you a round up of the best in new affordable men’s style arrivals for spring of 2018. So far we’ve put together a casual look utilizing the picks, but sometimes you need to dress a little nicer, without taking it to the nines. Here’s a look that falls in-between getting a pint with your buds, and attending that church wedding. 

Style Scenario: Spring Temptation - Finding the Middle Ground | Dappered.com

The Jacket: J. Crew Factory Unconstructed Linen Jacket – $ 99ish. “Unconstructed” and “linen” are the words to pay attention to here. Just the sleeves are poly lined, so your trunk can stay cool. And linen is an ultimate warm weather fabric. Should do you well spring through early fall.

The Shirt: UNIQLO Airism Shirt Collar Polo in Light Blue – $ 19.90. If you need to dress your looks up more, go with a dress shirt. But if leaning a bit casual is appropriate, try a polo under your blazer. This polo is also part of UNIQLO’s Airism line, which features quick dry fabric, and the shirting fabric at the collar (plus the buttons) is perfect for layering under the the sportcoat.

The Pants:  Spier & Mackay Tropical Wool “Fresco” Trousers in Heather Blue Fresco – $ 118. You might associate wool with cold weather, but it’s ability to regulate temperature makes it perfect for year round use. These particular pants are made with a fresco weave fabric. Fresco yarn is twisted high, and due to this the weave remains open, allowing for air flow.

The Belt: Suitsupply Brown Suede Belt – $ 59. Suede works in spring, and the lighter brown shade compliments the shoes and watch strap. And no, you don’t have to exactly match the shades of the suede if you’re wearing multiple suede pieces. This wasn’t in the Spring Temptations post, but was featured in the 10 Men’s Style Things to Change Up for Spring/Summer.

The Watch: Huckberry Exclusive Armogan Regalia Chronograph – $ 109.98 ($ 220). Keeping it clean on the watch front, but adding a bit of color in the mix with those orange hands. Pretty decent price. 40mm diameter should be wearable by most. Full review of the blue hand version here.

The Sunglasses: J. Crew Palma Sunglasses – $ 59.50. A combination of retro looks. Will transition well from super casual to smart casual looks.

The Shoes: Nordstrom 1901 “Merick” Bucks in Cigar Suede – $ 110.00. Since we’re going with a polo under the blazer, pairing bucks with this outfit won’t seem out of place. Cigar Suede is a fairly neutral pick to go with, as are the Dark Grey. Fully padded foot bed should keep these extra comfy. More of a traditional toe shape. Not super sleek, but, that’s what you get with most bucks.

Clean Up Your Finances This Spring!

Springtime is a great time to not only spruce up your home but also your finances.  If you are seeking to get your finances in order, use this time to give yourself a financial checkup!

Set thine house in order

Get organized!  If someone asked you, “Who holds your insurance policy?” or “Who holds your mortgage?” would you be able to provide them the information quickly?

I can recall after my father had had a stroke and was hospitalized for more than 30 days, I had to ask these tough financial questions at his bedside.

From that moment, I created a financial planner that included an area to list items to help others to get organized. If your papers are all over the place, you have to get organized. Not only that, make a listing of your mortgage holder, insurance policies, bank accounts, wills, and more. Place these items in one place so that you can have it when it is needed.

Credit Cleanup

Check your credit report and, more importantly, know your credit score. Keep in mind, you are able to obtain a free copy of your credit report at annualcreditreport.com from each of the three credit reporting agencies.

Review your report and determine whether there are any inaccuracies. If there are errors, take a moment and dispute them. This process not only ensures you have accurate information on your report, but it also can boost your credit score by removing items that are decreasing your score.

Savings Goals

It doesn’t matter whether you are saving a few dollars or a few hundred dollars, you have to commit to saving something. While most financial advice tells us to save at least three to six months for a rainy day, if you have had trouble saving, start with smaller goals in mind. For instance, it may be a good idea to consider within the last year, what was one of the largest unexpected expenses you had to take care of out of pocket and allow that to be your savings goal. Once you are able to save this amount, keep going until you have three to six months of necessities, such as a mortgage or rent, groceries, utilities, and other non-discretionary expenses. Committing to saving consistently can ensure your finances are in check.

Retirement Review

Are you saving enough for retirement? This is a great time to determine whether you will have enough money for when the big day comes! Take time to meet with a financial adviser regarding your financial goals to determine exactly how much money you should be saving. Then, adjust!

If you are ready to get started today, check out an online retirement calculator, which considers your age, retirement date, current income, and more to give you a quick access to determine if you are saving enough.  Also, take time to check your retirement estimates with Social Security. You can get an idea of the amount you can expect to receive once you retire.

The Only Spring Denim Trends That Matter

We’ll get straight to the point, when it comes to denim styles this spring, there’s three trends at the top of our must-try list. As we pointed out earlier this month, dad jeans are the latest buzz in “normal” dressing (think super light-wash and loose vibes), the next spring trend on our denim list is exaggerated slits, we’re seeing this detail available among several leading denim brands right now (like this exclusive version from the Levi’s and Shopbop collaboration). Last but not least, as you’ve probably noticed, candy-colored denim is popping up all over Instagram. Brands like Cotton Citizen and Paige are leading the trend with the coolest spring-y hues. If you really want to embrace the colored-denim trend, buy a matching cropped denim jacket to complete the look.

While skinny jeans and vintage-inspired jeans are denim wardrobe musts, it never hurts to freshen your jean selection with a few new silhouettes and styles. Enjoy the top three trends we’re eyeing right now and show us how you’re styling your jeans this spring using the hashtag #WhoWhatWearing on IG.

Love Wawa? The Company’s Filling 5,000 Positions in Its Spring Hiring Event


Like George Harrison said, I don’t need no “Wah-Wah”.

But I do need Wawa coffee.

If you think you can put up with hearing that joke a couple times a day, you could snag one of the 5,000 Wawa jobs the cult-fave gas station/convenience store chain is looking to fill during its annual spring hiring campaign.

These Wawa jobs range from customer service to management, according to the company’s press release.

Wawa operates more than 790 stores across six states: Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Delaware, Maryland, Virginia and Florida.

The company says every store will have job opportunities posted over the next three months, but some stores have been hosting open house-style Wawa Career Wednesdays, which started on March 28 and continue through April 18. Stores that are hosting the events will have signage posted outside, the company notes.

Besides being known for its made-to-order hoagies, Wawa has a reputation for offering its employees competitive wages and benefits like health insurance and a 401(k).

Tiffany Wendeln Connors is a staff writer at The Penny Hoarder. She probably eats too many Wawa hoagies. And breakfast sandwiches. And cinnamon rolls. And candy bars.

Ensemble: Cool Spring Emerald

Emerald green is having its fashion moment. As a bright with a somewhat acidic integrity, it’s usually more popular with those who enjoy warm colours. But you cannot see a colour in isolation because it’s greatly affected by the colours around it.  

These ensembles show how you can reduce the warmth of emerald green with cool colours like optical white, navy, ink blue, medium-wash denim blue, air-force blue, light blue, orchid, silver, ice pink and lilac. Black is another way to go, although I haven’t shown it here. Turquoise can also work, but to a lesser degree.

You can also wear emerald green away from your face. Wear it as a bottom with a skirt, pants, jeans, shorts and shoes, and sport cool colours on top. Or sport emerald as an accessory. Personally, I like emerald green with citron, turquoise, white and denim blue, which is a mix of warm and cool colours.

Winter can be unforgiving, long, depressing and extremely cold, but Spring is on the horizon. If you’re enjoying traces of Spring weather like we are in Seattle, may the colours in these ensembles further brighten your day.

Your Kids — and the Spring Birds — Will Love This Free Home Depot Workshop


Looking for a springtime project for the kids to create that won’t have you spending a bunch of money at your local craft store?

Well, The Home Depot has you covered.

The home improvement retailer will host a free kids’ workshop on April 7 where participants can build their own window birdhouses.

These little habitats for the birds in your backyard attach to windows with small suction cups. One side is made of a clear plastic pane so your kiddos can observe their feathered friends inside.

Adult supervision is required for this hands-on craft. Though the directions for construction indicate this project is not suited for children under 4 years old, younger kids may enjoy painting and putting stickers on the completed project at the in-store session.

In addition to getting to bring home their DIY birdhouse, participants can also score a free workshop apron, commemorative pin and certificate of achievement (while supplies last).

Although there is no fee, The Home Depot is asking participants to register online in advance. Sign up at your nearest store here. The workshop will take place from 9 a.m. to noon.

If building birdhouses doesn’t interest your little ones, keep checking The Home Depot’s kids workshops site for future events. They’re held monthly at stores across the country.

The home-improvement store also regularly hosts free workshops for adults to learn skills for future projects. Check your local store for details on upcoming events.

The Lowrider Scare Is Over: High-Waisted Pants Are (Thankfully) Back for Spring

Images: Imaxtree

Remember last summer when the internet collectively lost its guano over the return of lowrider jeans? Well, Roksanda Ilincic called and she wants her high-waisted denim back. We live in turbulent, fickle times, friends. That, or a lack of sales, sent designers back to the drawing board to figure out where things went wrong (hint: no one has the time or discipline to curate washboard abs). Let’s just hope the design houses have learned this lesson for good now so history doesn’t repeat itself and send us back into a frenzied panic.

This time around, the high-waisted trouser has a few new iterations in store. The first and most common being the paper-bag waist look, which entails wrapping some sort of rope-inspired belt tightly around your waist with the top of the trouser bowing out at the top. Perhaps you’ll recall when Mary-Kate Olsen delighted her legion of fans when she rocked this look back in 2007. The second way to revisit the much cherished high-waist look is by further elongating the top with an additional garment rising past, like Balmain’s spandex or Alexander Wang’s leather corsets. Last, and technically least, high-waisted trousers are now back in capri length at Isabel Marant for a fresh and fun spring look, replete with strappy sandals. If you’ve been wanting to wear high-waisted trousers but aren’t a fan of donning the wide-leg, floor-sweeping hem, this one’s for you.

The H&M x Anna Glover collab is basically Spring in a capsule

If you didn’t get your hands on the H&M x Erdem collaboration, I feel for you, I really do. However, there is light at the end of the tunnel in the form of their new limited edition collection, designer by Anna Glover.

If Spring came in the form of clothes, it would basically look like this H&M collection: a range of gorgeous clothes covered in colourful floral and botanical-based prints by the London-based award-winning designer, who usually specialises in bespoke wallpaper, textiles and digital surface design.

Having had a little preview of the collection (which launches 12th of April, so be patient), I can tell you it’s as flattering as it gets. Think flowy silhouettes with wide sleeves, floaty midi skirts and a jumpsuit floral purple jumpsuit that’s all you need to transition into the new season.

If you’re open to investing in a few pieces (though with prices starting at £12.99, you won’t need much convincing), then I suggest you have fun with your look and mix and match the different hues and prints, which go from pastel yellow to vivid purple and monochrome. The collection lends itself to this really well, though of course you can go for the head-to-toe look too.

Anna Glover

As the clothes are statements in themselves, make sure you keep the rest of your outfit paired back, favouring muted accessories and minimal jewellery.

The collection launches on 12th April, so elbows at the ready, because this one is sure to be a sell-out.

Six of Britain’s best ‘spring heartland’ walks

The entire British landscape is reborn in spring, but some ‘ultra-special places’ merit a seasonal pilgrimage, says nature writer Matthew Oates

Spring is primarily about transformation and the promise of summer. It fights a titanic struggle, for winter is loath to let go. Eventually spring wins through, and greens the drab-brown land until its flowers cover winter’s grave.

Above all, spring is a mighty metamorphosis that would turn any caterpillar green with envy. Wave upon wave of rejuvenation occurs, over entire landscapes, over whole countries. At its zenith, massive changes occur daily: swallows arrive one day, orange-tip butterflies appear the next, then nightingales, and so on. It offers us new epiphanies each day, each sunny hour.

The Kooples: 8 hot spring buys you need in your life

The fashion brand The Kooples made stylish everyday couples famous. And now the label is 10 years old! Read on to find out how the designers can tell a real couple from a phony one – and check out the best new pieces to snap up now…

Fashion Brand The Kooples

Fashion brand The Kooples immediately grabbed the public’s attention with their ad campaigns featuring hot real-life couples. Candid and effortlessly cool, who wouldn’t fancy themselves as one of the trendy pairings?

Run by three brothers, designers Laurent (womenswear), Alexandre (menswear) and marketing director Raphael Elisha, the notion of friends and family is the beating heart at the centre of fashion brand The Kooples, which is ten years old this year (or should that be ten years young…). The name was the result of the brothers playing with the French pronunciation of the word ‘couples’. ‘It seemed too easy, we couldn’t believe that it hadn’t been done before,’ laughs Raphael.

The label captures a sense of Parisian chic, laid-back South of France style, mixed with an indie rock ‘n’ roll LA vibe, bringing together influences from their upbringing and travels. Born into the business, the siblings’ parents were the founders of label Comptoir des Cotonniers and as children at home in the South of France the boys hung out with Jean-Paul Gaultier. The family later moved to LA, where they describe themselves as the kids who always dressed differently. As big rock ‘n’ roll lovers, they decided to start the label because they wanted to dress their musician friends. Finding willing couples to shoot, however, was a challenge at first. ‘We were just stopping people on the street, and they’d be suspicious, like, “I don’t want to do your dodgy porn!”‘ remembers Raphael.

Now, with stockists everywhere from Sweden to Australia and a fan base including Beyonce, it’s a different story. Asking Emily Ratajkowski to collaborate on a bag collection was an obvious choice for them. Always one to surprise, you only have to look to when Emily Ratajkowski married to see she’s an it-model with laissez-faire spirit. ‘She’s a strong, feminine, feminist risk-taker and we like strong people,’ says Laurent. ‘You either love her or hate her, but you always want to know more about her. A bit like us.’

Featuring guitar strap-like handles, hidden pockets, plus studs and embroidery a-plenty, the second collection of Emily x The Kooples has just launched and it’s every bit as lust-worthy as the first. Inspired in part by Ratajkowski’s own collection of vintage bags, the designs are simple, but rock ‘n’ roll.

‘Our collections always mix a very chic, Parisienne spirit with a grungy, LA rock side,’ says Laurent. ‘A lot of silk and a bit folk, with oversized sweaters. If we had to sum up our label in one item? It would have to be a leather jacket.’

Reckon you have what it takes to be a loved-up Koople? There’s no fooling these guys. Raphael has a trick lined up especially for sorting the real from the fake. ‘I ask them to get really close, nose-to-nose. Then I wait ten seconds, while I pretend to adjust my camera. If they’re really together, they kiss, they smile. It’s impossible to stay long like that with someone you don’t know.’ Imposters, you’ve been warned.

Alexa Chung Fetes Superga Spring Capsule

CLASSIC KICKS: Plant-based restaurant The Butcher’s Daughter dubs itself the “vegetable slaughterhouse,” and last night Superga and Alexa Chung closed down the joint for a private party to toast the launch of their capsule collection together.
The shoe brand asked Chung to design an exclusive capsule, which makes tweaks to some of Superga’s classics for spring, including the addition of a toe cap on some styles and an increased height on the high top. Fabrications include satin and terry towel in colors such as burgundy, sky blue, green and off-white.
“We approached this very much as a passion project, an homage to Superga and their classic sneaker,” Chung said. “It’s the shape that I love, so rather than amend the last and make the sole crazy or do anything wild, we just did really subtle additions that I think make it look really luxe-y.”
It was also important that the shoes coexist with Chung’s namesake label, she added.
“It came about because they asked me to collaborate but it had to sit within our own brand and our online shop. So knowing the timing of when it would come out, we made an effort to make it. Also, sneakers are something we don’t make

This Website Can Help You Look Like A Fashionista In Time For Spring

When you are buying an outfit or choosing a new piece to add to your closet, do you think about your decisions or just buy blindly and spur of the moment? Fashion Snoops is a global trend and color forecasting agency that helps companies and creatives by outlining the fashion trends for the next 18-24 months. Sound expensive? Probably. However, they partnered with Dove and celebrity stylist Zerina Akers to help YOU look fly for the Spring/Summer season

The website (located here) will tell you what colors to wear, the top colors of 2018 (and how to pair them!), how to refresh your wardrobe and more. Really!

Instagram Photo

Dove gifted me with a styling session with Zerina Akers (who has styled your faves like Chloe x Halle, Ava DuVernay, and Beyoncé!) who showed me what colors to wear and how to pair them. I also had the opportunity to sit with the Founder of Fashion Snoops and talk trends and go through the site (trust me, you’ll love it).

With all the color trends for 2018, you don’t want to walk around with white marks on your clothing. Good thing there is Dove Invisible Dry Spray ($ 5.49 at Target.com). Their latest antiperspirant can be sprayed directly on clothes and leave NO white mark. I’ve tried it and it really works!

Urban Zen RTW Spring 2018

Roaming through Donna Karan’s Urban Zen store, where the designer showed her latest in-season collection, is a transporting experience. Furniture, jewelry and art are culled from Haiti, Papua New Guinea, Bali and Africa, among other artisanal communities, in a vast curation of culture. It ties with the brand ethos focused on life (hers, specifically), travel and effortless dressing through it all.
Karan isn’t shy about the personal outfitting aspect, either. “I’m selfish, this is mine, nobody else’s,” she says with a laugh. “If other people want it, great, but I’m doing my own wardrobe!” It’s a highly enviable one. For her upcoming trip to Africa, she made easy-to-wear jumpsuits, tunics and dresses that transition from short to long with a hidden button. A wrap skirt maintained great versatility, with options to wear undone, tied at the front with a little bunching, or to the side for a wrapped effect. Featherweight statement necklaces made from combinations of leather, rubber and suede topped these off, while belt bags added a nomadic touch. Karan introduced shoes as well, ranging from low, wraparound sandals to high boots in lightweight suede.
For summertime in the Hamptons, she proposed a palette of black and white for free-flowing poplin

Style Scenario: Early Spring in the Mountains

What are you going to wear? Sometimes it’s good to look at a few suggestions then add your own tweaks and ideas. That’s what these are for. Now before all the armchair mountain men lose their minds over the inadequacy of this stuff, no one is looking to recreate the Amundsen Expedition here. These are options for getting up/out to a cabin, and relaxing. Just a few functional, flexible pieces suitable for the weather of an early spring weekend getaway, even if the most physical activity you’ll end up doing is half an hour of wood chopping. Unplug. Relax. Hibernate a bit.

Style Scenario: Early Spring in the Mountains | Dappered.com

The Sweater: JCF Striped Sweatshirt Sweater – $ 34.50 ($ 59.50). The feel of a sweatshirt with the styling of a sweater. Comfort is the name of the game.

The Watch: Casio Diver – $ 50ishYep, this one again. Why? Because, it’s a great option for your mountain escape. With its 200m water resistance, and resin band, it’s hardy enough to withstand any rain/snow, or some good ol’ wood chopping.

The Belt: GAP Basic Leather Belt – $ 39.95. Simple, basic and comfortable. You don’t need anything more on this trip.

The Jacket: Goodfellow & Co Men’s Standard Fit Wool 4 Pocket Military Jacket – $ 79.99. Look, if you’re planning on spending a lot of time exploring outside, in the rain or snow, you’re going to want to wear something a little more weather appropriate. But, for the drive up to the cabin, getting into the cabin, and relaxing in the cabin…this will suit you just fine. 

The Reading Material: The Passage by Justin Cronin – $ 14.25 (paperback). An updated take on a cataclysmic virus/zombie-esque type story. Part of a trilogy. Exceptionally written; you won’t be able to put it down. Might be a little creepy for being in an isolated cabin…but maybe you like that sort of thing.

The Entertainment: Catch Phrase – $ 15.94 & Playing Cards – $ 5.77 (2 pack). Most likely you won’t have cell phone or internet access (isn’t that kind of the point?), and most likely you’ll be escaping with family or friends, so you’ll want something fun and easy to pass the time.

The Bag: Rains 30L Duffel – $ 66.98 FINAL ($ 110). “Built to defy the elements and look good doin’ it.” This Danish (pretty sure it’s made in Denamrk?) made, 30L duffel, with custom-developed waterproof fabric, will keep all your personal items dry regardless of the weather. 

The Jeans: GAP Straight Fit with GapFlex – $ 69.95. You’ll want something comfortable enough to lounge around in while you’re reading in front of the fire, but also sturdy enough if you have to shovel a path through the snow to the outhouse.

The Boots: Danner Mountain 600 – $ 200. A Dappered favorite, these boots get it all done, and get better and better looking over time. Not a crazy clunky long distance hiker, and not an athletic shoe dressed up to look like it’s tough. Right in between. Size down a half size. Or, if these aren’t your thing, bring along whatever your preferred pair of breathable, waterproof, sturdy boots happens to be. Don’t worry about matching your leather colors here. 

The Socks: Wigwam Men’s Merino Wool Comfort Hiker Midweight Crew Socks – $ 10.36. These wool socks will keep your feet dry and warm, no matter what the activity, napping included.

Something to Sip: Viña Bujanda Crianza – $ 12.99. According to vinepair.com, “Wines classified as Crianza are aged for one year in oak and one year in bottle. These wines are perfect for everyday drinking, with a relatively low price point and flavors that are both fresh and accessible”- making this full-flavored, yet easy to drink, Rioja Tempranillo the perfect addition to a relaxing evening in front of the fire.
