    We already know that our Casualisto’s are fast shoppers and that’s why we want to lead you quickly through the following styleguide.

    A squared, wrinkled, casual dress shirt would be a good fit on top of a skinny blue-washed jeans. The good thing is you don’t need that much imagination for this kind of outfit and you look exactly how you want to look like – easy going, very casual and most important quickly dressed! And by the way do the boots above look familiar to you? Remember our November 2010 Allsaint boots fashion style tip? Yes, we would definitely combine these boots with the rest of the outfit – they fit perfectly to the dress shirt, don’t you think?

    This styleguide is going to give you some ideas how you will be a ‘looker’ among your folks anytime, anywhere. Even on cold days like this you can look amazing with wearable and comfortable clothes.

    This beautiful chocolate coat for instance with its tie waist and a button tab neckline would fit perfectly with these high-heeled but very casual boots. What it makes difficult, especially in the winter time, is to be fashionably dressed but in clothes which protect you against the cold.

The matchy bobble hat, the over-the-knee stockies and the leather slouch bag is a perfect solution to make your outfit fashionable, trendy and edgy! Exactly everything what a Fashionista needs, doesn’t she?

    Fashion Styleguide: Welcome Mrs. Unisex

    Februar 17th, 2011

    Don’t we all adore women who have the guts to combine retro with modern style skillfully? Isn’t it convenient somehow if you can mix clothes which looks worn but also very special and edgy with new seasonal items? The good news is, it really looks great if you know how to put different styles together. Let us define an appropriate nickname for all the women who love to wear uncomplicated and unisex. We’d like to introduce you to our next styleguide target group – ‘Excentrista‘.

    This styleguide will give you an idea how simple it is to look a little funky but still natural. First of all, grab a dark or stonewashed blue skinny jeans and combine it with a simple but hip-length short-sleeve or long-sleeve T-Shirt. I would prefer this T-Shirt above because of its restrained strips and little pocket which makes it more interesting. On top of it, it will always go with a nice, plain and casual nylon or black schoolboy blazer. Be aware to choose an eye-catcher that grabs the attention and will make your outfit perfect. The T-Shirt which could also be longer than the blazer is the looker in this case. But any outfit needs a great ‘bottom’ part. Finish your casual outfit with some military or worker boots and leave them a bit open, as you can see it in my picture above.

    That’s it for today, enjoy your look and talk to you soon again.

    This outfit piece by piece:

    #1 – Nylon schoolboy blazer – $148.00
    #2 – Edge mid-rise skinny slouch jeans – $102.50
    #3 – Kain striped modal-blend pocket T-shirt -$ 95.00
    #4 – Shearling Suede Military Boot – $200.00
    #5 – Fornarina Flat Worker Boots - $212.00

    Fashion Styleguide: The bombshell has been dropped

    Januar 11th, 2011

    I like men with balls. Guy’s who have the guts to step out of the box and go for edgy outfits. Dude’s who are widely known role models within their peer group. Poser’s who strike you down with their fashionable appearance. In short: Male Bombshells. But since I know about the prudish attitude in this country let’s give them a more neutral name. Let’s call them ‘Stilisto’s’.

    So whether you are already a Stilisto, or you are working on becoming one, the following ‘styleguide’ will give you some inspiration you might haven’t thought of yet. Since I’m talking here to all of you advanced Stilisto’s I don’t want to waste my time starting from the scratch. It’s obvious that you have a black or grey washed skinny jeans sitting somewhere in your closet. Use them as the base of this outfit and combine it with sneakers that resemble the one displayed in the picture below.

    Next: Throw on either a long-sleeve shirt or a T-Shirt and combine it with a grey vest. If you go with a long-sleeve shirt or T-Shirt underneath the vest, please don’t button up the vest. It has to be open for this kind of casual style. If you want this outfit to be pumped up combine it with a black or white button down shirt. In this case you should close up the vest though.

    To make your stylish appearance more interesting team up this outfit with a hat and shoulder bag. If you’d like to add more accessories I’d recommend a nice wrist-watch with a dark leather band. A fancy black belt would be also a win for this style. But watch out: You have to remember that either the accessories or the bag has to resemble the color of your boots. Oh and guy’s, don’t forget the sexy slim tie which is definitely an eye-catcher within this combination. The tie would work either way with the casual shirt-style or the more formal button down shirt style.

    That’s it for today. Oh and please let me know if you can feel your balls while wearing this outfit. I’m curious to hear all your stories soon. Stay dry.

    This outfit piece by piece:

    #1 – ASOS Jersey Vest – $35.00
    #2 – ASOS Slim Tie – $10.34
    #3 – Fedora Hat – $9.99
    #4 – Fred Perry Shoulder Bag – $60.34
    #5 – ALDO Go Down Sneakers – $75.00
