The Camel Coat: Your Best Friend For Layering

A killer camel coat is one of the best pieces you can invest in during the Winter months. If you don’t have one in your closet already…shame on you (keep reading, I’ll hook you up in a few seconds). What I consider to be a closet staple, the trusty camel coat is not only extremely versatile, but chic enough to give any outfit an insta-worthy style upgrade. Thrown over a slim down puffer vest & plaid shirt, your camel coat will give your look an instant slim, GQ vibe while keeping out the chill (I’m trying to get you guys to move away from the bulky puffer jackets here if you can’t tell). This bad boy pictured above (purchased 2 years go) is an MAJOR sale right now at Club Monaco…under $300 and additional sale on top of that I believe.

Happy New Year!

img_2171

I know most of you are getting ready to (finally) ring in 2017 and celebrate the end of 2016 with friends and loved ones, but I wanted to take a quick minute to personally thank ALL of you for your support this past year. 2016 had its ups and downs for all of us, but for me it was an incredible year of growth. 2016 was my first official year working for myself, running my own styling & creative consulting business outside of the corporate fashion world. To say it was easy would be a lie. The struggle was real and the hustle was strong, however the rewards were plentiful. I have so many exciting things in store for 2017 and can not wait to share it all with you! I honestly owe each and every one of you a big THANK YOU for your kind words, encouragement, social engagement and loyalty. I love hearing your style questions, receiving your messages and having you join me while working on-air.  Thank you. Now… go have one too many glasses of champagne!

Heres to a fantastic and stylish 2017 together. xo – Preston

Holiday Style: Festive Daytime Styling

Holiday Style:

I like to kick things up a notch when dressing for the holidays. While pulling off your evening look is relatively simple (dark, blazers, sweaters) a daytime festive look can be tricky. Color, classic patterns & simple denim are key staples when putting together a classic holiday look with a twist. With work parties rolling into friend parties (which roll into countless insta-shots), I love this signal red duffle coat to make a statement. Layer a denim dress shirt (make sure to look for a great spread-collar…no buttons) with a classic fair isle vest & plaid tie for a look thats classically preppy yet fresh. Grounded in denim, this look is great for a Friday at the office and your holiday party.

Christmas Shopping in Brooklyn: American Field x GQ Market

img_1726

After a wonderful kick-off dinner in Manhattan last week, the guys from American Field market (think the coolest & freshest menswear designers all in one room showing off their merch) invited me to swing by the Brooklyn market this past weekend. The set-up was killer. Brands ranging from Boll & Buck to Sailormade assembled in one room to meet with browsers, brands, bloggers & editors. Take a peek at some of the pics we snapped at the expo, as well as the look I threw on to venture off to Brooklyn, after the jump…(I linked to the pieces I’m wearing in the pics below…minus a few things that are no longer available in which case, I have subs for you guys!) x- Preston

Statement Sweaters – How To Style Them

Thanksgiving has come and gone which means the holiday season is in full swing. Another sign it’s time to get festive? Gap whipped out the crazy stripe statement sweaters! (Seriously, who remembers these from high school?) Anyway, as just about everything from the 90’s is back in style, I figured I would grab one as quick as possible. The key to making a statement sweater work in your everyday style is to pair is back to staples like slim jeans, chelsea boots and a classic pea coat. Instead of layering over a button down shirt, I say throw your statement sweater over your favorite crewneck tee shirt to keep things looking effortless and cool. x – Preston

(STYLE TIP: Remove the standard plastic buttons that come with your peacoat and have them replaced. I grabbed these vintage inspired buttons from a flea market in NYC and had my local dry cleaner sew them on…easy upgrades make all the difference. I linked a killer set of vintage inspired buttons below!)
