Transitioning to Fall: Denim & Mustard Tone...

Nodding To Fall With Denim & Color

While the temps may be steamy here in New York, my mind is racing with thoughts of chunky sweaters & chelsea boots for Fall. Until then, it’s time to start nodding to Fall with great denim & autumn-trend tones even while it’s still warm out there. For denim, it’s all about a vintage, 90’s style wash like these skinnies from Abercrombie. Not only is the wash perfectly aged, but the fit is insane and contain just the right amount of stretch. For shirting, opt for classic oxford-cloth shirts in Fall-ready colors, one of the biggest trends of the season being mustard. This one from Abercrombie is perfectly washed with a killer fit. Throw a varsity-inspired sweater around your waist or shoulders for a little hint at layering (you can always throw in your bag when the temps rise throughout the day).

The Ugly Sneaker Trend

Wearing Ugly / Dad / 90’s / Chunky Sneakers Is A Thing

If you follow me on Instagram, it will be no surprise to you that I am not a fan of the ugly sneaker trend that is currently taking over social media and the fashion industry as a whole. Perhaps it’s because I’ve lived through this style moment during it’s incarnation in the 90’s (high school flashbacks anyone?) or maybe it’s because of the wild prices, but either way I can not justify playing with this whole ugly moment. As I’ve written to many of you, my whole theory on personal style is that it is just that, very personal. I hate seeing friends cave to trends and waste money in the process. Of course I support buying things that make you happy, but I’d much rather you guys invest in classics like a gorgeous chelsea boot, Gucci loafers (backless or classic), a killer Prada brogue, or handsome wingtips that you’ll have for a decade. That being said, I’ve been getting tons of messages on Instagram saying that you’d like to give this wacky-ass trend a shot and I figured if you are going to pull the trigger, I’d save your bank account a few bucks and save you a bit of embarrassment (cue looking back at your feed in 2020 wondering what the hell was I thinking?!) I’ve scoured the web and landed on 15 pairs of chunky sneakers that are under $200 and won’t have you looking like an extra in a bad Saved By The Bell episode. As always, feel free to drop me a comment or a DM on Instagram…happy shopping! x -Preston

 

Sorry. We Dig Justin Bieber.

Justin Bieber scored his first GQ cover, making his debut on this years March issue, shot by Eric Ray Davidson. The Biebs took to the set and gave life to some of the top trends and colors of the season including polka dots, black & white, and bold color. In the spread, Justin divulges, “Everyone when they start growing up realizes, ‘Man, I did some dumb shit when I was younger.’ It’s not just me…If I could go back, I wouldn’t really change much. I think it’s all my journey. That stuff made me who I am.” We all know the shenanigans he’s referring to, but is Justin continues to clean up like in the photos below (and the knee-hugging pants and oversized tees stay in the closet) we promise not to give a shit what he does in his spare time. We’ve pulled some of our favorite looks from the spread and linked them to more affordable, wear now options. Enjoy, boys. Read the full story & see all of the images on GQ.com.
