Spring Staple: The Short-Sleeved Sweatshirt

Short-Sleeve Sweatshirt – Top Picks To Buy Right Now

A killer short-sleeve sweatshirt is one of the most classic, and versatile pieces you can have in your Spring/Summer wardrobe. What was once a retro staple, the SSS is back in action for 2017 and I could not be happier. I honestly consider this bad boy my secret style weapon for Spring. Pair it back to a fun printed pant, or with your favorite jeans for a great everyday look, or layer under a suit jacket with slim trousers for something a bit more polished. I’ve taken a deep dive on the interwebs to round up some of the best short-sleeved sweatshirts for you guys below, enjoy! x – Preston

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.

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.

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!)

Velvet Crush: A Night Out With INC Men

img_1170

This past Thursday night, I was honored to join a stylish group of New Yorkers to kick off the Holiday season in partnership with INC Men, exclusively available at Macy’s. Hosted by Nyle DiMarco (yes, the devilishly handsome Nyle DiMarco of Dancing With The Stars Fame) in a basement level SoHo speakeasy called The Handy Liquor Bar, the evening (dubbed #INCNightOut) was filled will great music, strong drinks, and killer menswear. I’ve linked the products I wore to event below, happy clicking & shopping!

I decided to opt for a luxe, tailored INC look for the night. The star of the look had to be the slim Jayden blazer in a rich navy velvet. Honestly, I couldn’t keep up with the amount of comments and questions about this bad boy. Understated and classic yet just poppy enough to standout, this blazer is the perfect piece for a kick-ass holiday party. Check out the blazer, here.  Instead of going with a crisp white shirt, I styled the Jayden blazer with a fine-gauge black turtleneck to reinforce the throwback, vintage inspired feel of the look (Think James Bond vibez). Just light enough to layer yet thick enough to keep the chill out, this is a wardrobe staple (I actually picked up a few of the other colors at Macy’s just for good measure!). To finish off the look, I wanted the pant to be slim, comfortable and slightly cropped…enter my new secret weapon, the deep black stretch pant. Fitted more like a traditional 5-pocket trouser instead of a suit pant, this pant is definitely a new favorite. Just the right amount of stretch proved to be perfect for a little dancing and mingling at the bar, while the luxe sheen fabric keeps the look dressy an polished.
