Oscar de La Renta Elegance

Oscar de la Renta a fashion superstar is the ultimate splash for a non-boring show. The ladies rocked classic pieces on the runway. These are not only elegant but wearable runway material. This look also says: “show me the money”.

Dark, daring, but never depressing.

Models Day Off

This is how one of the models dresses on her day off the runway. I on the other hand, think that this outfit borders on ambiguity. Is it an outfit or a get-up??  gurl got me so confused. I want to high-five her off-work style from being different from those other runway robots. So kudos to that.

Mango Shows Black Some Love

Mango Clothing decided to feature a replay of black fashion icons. That is visual justice for real. To be presented in a positive light is a shout-out I lookout for. Do I hear “More More please”? I definitely want more. And you should too.

Nothing Says Funk It Like This Crew.

Seriously this group is swaggerific.I just invented that word I think. But then again, with a name like Brisk Convergence, you have to own up to it.  Each individual had that unique individuality that I just can’t put a finger on. The rest of you are just going to be swagger-jacking. I just know it. I have my police force out on patrol. Enjoy until you get caught. 

Out to put the funk in style.

Men Stepping Out in Styles

It could be the Tanino Crisci shoes or a guy who knows how to handle a plain white t-shirt. There is something great about a man who doesn’t let himself down by the clothing that he wears. 

Coats that tempt the coat-check clerk to steal coats.

Swagger in Coats.

Andrea has his own style. This fella is not hijacking anybody else’s swagger but his own.

Coat, Hat and glasses. A true Renaissance man.

It’s All About the Scarf

It’s all about the scarf so then it must be about the neck area too. I am loving the details on the Rhi Rhi scarf. I’m intrigued by the fact that this scarf doesn’t look cliched like a Shemagh usually would. Gurl you own this style.  And those of you who know me know I really like the details in an outfit. 

Got to appreciate a fashionista who pays homage to detail.

This one beauty chose to worn hers on her head.

Gorgeously worn. Note the details remain on the scarf not the whole body. No detail overload.

Geek Impersonator Trend Talk

Get your nerd on.

Get your nerd on.

I have not jumped on that dark-rimmed train. Probably because, as my family would also agree, I am one gurl who strays from the masses. I’m asking myself: Is it a style, a trend, a movement, a cultural shift or just a love affair with all things uncool? To me it’s an emulation of the child (via 1970’s and earlier) who has an appointment with the school bully.  But I don’t care. I think that it’s all a superficial adaption that’s working well for some people. 

So back to what a geek is truly: A geek, I believe, has obsessive, esoteric knowledge about mass media, pop culture and technology. Geeks are generally smart, they’re passionate about things most people don’t care about, and most of them tend to be early adopters when it comes to the latest gadgets. So, conclusion and caution: those who wear it may not be true geeks but rather, posers. Sorry to break it to you.

Jay-z can pull it off but then again, he is a metrosexual man who does style well.

Before men were yelled at to keep a button down shirt and a pair of Italian Loafers in their closet, Common had his swagger ahead of that game. He really look like Malcomb X (also his style is inspired by him I believe). Open a school of style and all men must enroll!!!
