REVO 2015: “Thrifted Neckwear”

Untitled

This year, Rajesh and I decided to design our own line for REVO, our university’s annual fashion show for charity.  Because it’s already May, we focused our line on spring menswear!  We wanted to show people that what we create is wearable on a daily basis and isn’t restricted to just staying on the runway.  So in addition to styling our models we also created something so hipster and awesome:  our own unique line of neckties.

“Dangerously Diverse” feat. Jay

UntitledGuys tend to have one style.  Raj for example, only sticks to the preppy essentials.  Jay on the other hand doesn’t limit himself to just one specific style; he has such an expansive closet that he can create a series of different looks.   Having a diverse style allows you to break out of your comfort zone and have outfits for any occasion.  In this feature, Jay wears three different outfits that really break the mold.

Park Picnic Style

UntitledI wasn’t planning on doing a full blog post today, but the fact that everyone looked great and that there was a garden in the park warranted a need for one!  Here, we show you some basic picnic styles on everyone!  Before, “American sportswear” was the term for clothes that were meant to be worn casually.  Now, you can literally wear anything everywhere.  So check out what everyone brought to the table!  Each person’s outfits really shows their personal style.

A “Mad Men” Evening feat. Spencer and Jay

It is my belief that the rise of menswear in this modern era has its roots in the critically-acclaimed show “Mad Men”.  Guys started wearing suits more, putting a pocket square in that razor thin square fold, and even brought the fedora back in some circles.  A while ago, I had the pleasure of shooting Spencer and Jay, the most well dressed high schoolers I know.   They love the show and carefully evoke the style in their outfits.  As we had a swell dinner at South Coast Plaza, I just had to snap some pictures of these guys!

Wearable Women Wednesday with Antonella

I love when someone has not just one style, but a variety of different styles.  Antonella is no exception.  When I first got to know her, I was surprised that she was actually interested in vintage fashion.  As we kept talking I realized that she was a fellow fashionista and I’m glad we finally get to have her as our Wearable Women Wednesday!  In this edition, we get to feature three distinctly different outfits from Antonella to show that her style isn’t confined to just one type.

The Art of the T-Shirt

One big question I get asked often is “do you even wear t-shirts”.  Usually the question implies two things:  that I am incapable of dressing down and that a t-shirt is reserved for being ultra-casual or lazy.  This post is designed to tell you that this isn’t the case.  A t-shirt isn’t just for “bum days” or athletic wear; this important piece of clothing can be dressed down or dressed up at will and will always help you look fantastic.  Today, we will talk about how a t-shirt supposed to fit and show you eight different ways you can get the most out of it.

How to Dress for College: Monochromatic Style

Everyone had those “color block” days in high school.  Heck, it carries over today.  It’s easy just picking all of the same color and wearing it to class to give a monochromatic look.  Here we explore taking those color block ideas and turning them into something that can be mature and cool to wear around your campus! Just remember two main ideas when pulling this off:

1.  Wear differing shades in your articles of clothing

2. Use patterns to set each piece apart!
