It’s 2011! 2010 bolted by and poof! It’s gone. So what is my 1st post of 2011 going to be? How about Now, New, Next: The Fashion-y Edition! These are the things to covet (and maybe desire) in the 1st quarter of 2011.
Khaki/Tan & Gray. Banish the black. The new non-colors are colors in their own right and look smashing used as neutrals. Tan, beige, khaki, olive green & gray are much more interesting than basic black.
Style note: Nothing is chicer than tan accessories. Take this look into Spring with a gorgeous belt or a great bag in tan leather.
Male Supermodels. Not since the era of Tyson Beckford & Marcus Schenkenberg has there been a moment in fashion where the boys have taken center stage. Enter the era of Noah Mills, David Gandy & Jon Kortajarena. Look for Noah in Michael Kors, David in D&G & Jon in Tom Ford.
Style watch: These boys are moving from the runway to the big screen. Yep that was Noah Mills in SATC 2 & Jon K. was the hot hustler in Tom Ford’s critically acclaimed A Single Man.
Simon Spurr & Buckler: This Spring/Summer 2011 only 2 designers matter. Simon Spurr pushes his clean modern take on the classics forward in clothes every man wants. Think of Buckler as the “lil bro” to Simon. It’s got a cool, grown up skater meets Malibu surfer vibe.
Style note: Fashion should always be this easy. A khaki suit & shorts can take you through Spring & Summer coolly.
Happy New Year my dearest readers! I know it’s rainy & a bit chilly but blue skies are coming and we must be ready! And please watch my new series Style Star on the Style Network, Saturdays starting Jan. 8th! 1st episode Angelina Jolie & Kate Beckinsale.
