Dare to dream, dare to be colorful, dare to be fashionable

Some may say that fashion is only for women while others say that men have just a small part of this dimension and it’s a risky one. Fashion is for everyone but to execute it correctly you need to mix that with style and now you can have what would be called men’s fashion trends or women’s. Sometimes we leave the guys kinda behind. Let’s face it as women most of us care a lot more about what we wear or how we look than men. It is only a small percentage of our fellow partners that are into what drives us crazy: fashion. Still every year with every new trend report we give men a little bit of space so that you guys don’t feel left out.

 Although some of us don’t see them as playing a big part of this community as we may like to call it I believe a man whose fashion oriented and can keep up with fashion’s latest trends looks confident, secure and better yet sexy. With this said why don’t we start with the basics? Men love socks. Maybe is because they are basically forced to use them with most of they’re shoes or maybe it’s because of the comfort that brings them. Why not transform something from the regular day to day usability to an ultimate fashion trend?

 Patterned and color socks is not completely new. Back in the day colors and patterns like zig zag, lines, etc. were used on socks and men loved them (were talking like 1940 here). So for this season a major trend in menswear and the highlight of the outfit is all focused on the socks. I mean think about it, it’s brilliant! Were not asking them to pin point or change the ensemble they are used to, just spice it up with the socks. A classic look with colored lining socks that bring pink, purple, aqua and orange to the outfit will be an awesome experience to start experimenting and you don’t have to go all big about it.

 For those that are really into fashion (which guys we know most of you aren’t but we have faith we have a pretty strong group out there) there is a more fashionable way to wear and show your socks. You can wear a khaki pant and fold them while wearing classic shoes like oxfords and show just a bit of your sock. Just try it once or twice and we assure you that all the girls will be all over you. This is a good strategy for the game were giving you here so take it!

Regresa el “doctor bag”

Son versátiles, cómodas y elegantes, y su diseño práctico, sencillo y clásico hace del “doctor bag” una de las compras más inteligentes para ésta temporada y la que se avecina.

Este estilo de bolso, cuyo diseño proviene del siglo 19, debe su nombre al característico maletín que usaban particularmente los médicos durante esa época. En un sus inicios, era una cartera pensada para hombres; a eso le debemos su forma sencilla, que en la actualidad se ha reinventado con detalles muy femeninos.

Las “doctor bag”, traídas de vuelta por diseñadores como Louis Vuitton, se caracterizan por su tamaño mediano y asa, generalmente corta. En el mercado se consiguen en diferentes estilos y materiales como en piel, cuero, tela, en estampados alegres o colores sólidos brillantes y hasta con líneas más deportivas. Algunos de los diseñadores, incluso le han incorporado una correa larga adiconal para mayor comodidad.

De esta forma, el “doctor bag” viene a darle un respiro a las carteras tipo mensajero, que tanto arraigo han tenido en los últimos dos años, para brindarle un toque muy femenino a las nuevas combinaciones que llegan cargadas de piezas con estilos muy retro.

Lo mejor de este bolso es que la sencillez de su forma combina con cualquier atuendo y puedes usarlo a toda hora, desde para trabajar hasta para salir a tomarte una copa.

Con las “doctor bags” retomo el blog, que tuve que abandonar por varias semanas debido a situaciones personales. Ahora, vuelvo a la carga y con muchas ideas para compartir con ustedes, mis “Shoe Lovers”.
