How I Wore The Floral Jacket

image

I remember those days the only floral print you would see a guy wearing were those hawaiians shirts grandpas dared to wear. Well times have definitely changed because I don’t think there is a guy on earth today that doesn’t own something floral! 

Not only I have floral shirts, shorts, hats but now that floral trend has transitioned to all seasons. I needed a jacket. This is how I wore a beautiful Vanishing Elephant Floral Jacket on one of the couple cold days we had on NYFW. All white to make something already impressive, really spectacular!

Como me puse la chaqueta de flores

Me acuerdo de esos días que las únicas flores que los chicos se punian eran las flores Hawaianas que a los abuelitos les encantaban! Todo va cambiando y ahora es mas bien imposible encontrar un hombre que no tenga así sea una prenda con flores.

Yo tengo camisas, pantalonetas, gorras. Pero me faltaba una prenda, la chaqueta de flores! Sobretodo ahora que las flores ya han dejado de ser un estampado de estaciones de calor. La chaqueta “Vanishing Elephant” me la puse con todo blanco para que realmente sobresalga.

One of the looks I wore to NYFW. These features a Topman Trench Coat and an all basic Benetton Attire (grey pants, black tie and white shirt). 

Dapper in Hot Weather (Vest & Hat)

image

It was the first day of New York Fashion Week and the hotness was unbearable. Being from Miami, you would expect I’m more tolerable to hot weather, but in reality having AC everywhere and a car have made very spoiled in that sense. This is why wanting not to look too effortless, I wore a  dark olive vest with matching pants, and a lighter olive hat.

I love to wear one color outfits, I feel they make a strong statement and let you play just with shades of each color. For instance, the back of my vest matches the light olive color of my hat. I went for black shoes because the shade of my outfit were too close to brown.

Elegante en Clima Caliente (un chaleco y sombrero)

Era el primer dia de la semana de la moda y el calor estaba insoportable. Viviendo en Miami, te imaginarias que estuviera mas acostumbrado al clima caliente, pero en realidad el tener aire acondicionado y un carro me han mal acostumbrado en ese aspecto. Queriendo un look no tan casual, me puse un chaleco de color aceituna y un sombrero un poco mas claro.

Me encanta utilizar atuendos de un solo color. Siento que hacen una fuerte impresión y pues no es tan divicil jugar con diferentes tonos del mismo color. Por ejemplo, la parte de atrás de mi chaleco combina con el color de mi sombrero. Decidí ponerme zapatos negros por que el color de mi pinta era muy cafe.

Spiffy Weekend (How to pair a pocket square with a tie)

image

Lately, I’ve been digging beige outwear. It’s such a versatile color that it can go well with black, brown or anything in between. That is why when my friends at Weekend Casual sent me this eye popping pocket square, I knew I could pull it off with a beige blazer & black pants for a more elegant look.

Notice how the pattern of the tie has some pink tones that go perfectly with the pocket square. Balance is key, so if you’re opting for a very colorful pocket square, try to mellow your look down with a more subtle tie or vice versa.

Fin de Semana de Revista

Últimamente estoy utilizando muchas chaquetas beige. Es un color tan versátil que puede ir bien con negro, marrón o cualquier otra cosa en el medio. Por eso, cuando mis amigos de fin de Weekend Casual me enviaron este pañuelo tan llamativo, sabía que me lo podia poner con una chaqueta de color beige y claro, un pantalón negro para un look más elegante.

Date cuenta cómo la pinta en la corbata tiene algunos tonos rosados ​​que van perfectamente con el pañuelo en el bolsillo. El equilibrio es clave, por eso si estas optando por un pañuelo muy colorido, trata de suavizar el look hacia con una corbata más sutil o viceversa.

The Not-so Whatever Outfit (What to wear on vacations?)

When vacationing the last thing you want to worry about is your clothes. If you’re a person that normally dresses well, it’s just healthy to not even think about what you’re wearing for once.

You should go for your most comfortable clothes and make the place you’re visiting feel like home. This is why on my last trip to the beautiful Medellin, Colombia; I wore a basic T-shirt, TOMS and white jeans. I went for  simple clothing and basic colors, so I could blend in with the locals. Thought I added to my outfit an oversized bowler hat (similar to Pharell Williams!) to stay true to my stylish self.

El atuendo perfecto para las vacaciones:

Cuando estas de vacaciones, la ultima cosa en la que te quieres preocupar es lo que llevas puesto. Si eres una persona que normalmente te vistes bien, despreocuparte de tu ropa por alguna vez es simplemente saludable.

Por esto mismo, en mi ultimo viaje al hermoso Medellin; me quise poner una básica camiseta, TOMS y pantalones blancos. Quise también utilizar solo colores simples para mezclarme con la población. Sin embargo, le agregue a mi atuendo un sombrero como el de Pharell Williams para ser fiel a mi personalidad.

The Bomber Jacket with Shirt & Tie

Hi guys! I’ve been wanting to blog about the bomber jacket with tie. This combination is special because the comfortability you get from the casual attire and the empowerment a tie & shirt will give you. 

The whole outfit consists of Black Sisley pants, a black tie, white shirt and vivid blue bomber jacket with matching Nike Genicco sneakers. This outfit is really easy to copy, however I recommend to stay away from any shirt with patterns or colors because the simpler the inner outfit is, the more playful you can be with the color of your jacket and sneakers.

La Chaqueta Cazadora con Corbata & Camisa

Hola chicos! He querido hacer un blog acerca de la chaqueta cazadora con una corbata. Esta combinación es especial por la comodidad que te de la ropa informal y el empoderamiento la corbata y camisa les dará.

Todo el conjunto consiste de un pantalón Negro Sisley, una corbata negra, camisa blanca y chaqueta cazadora azul con tenis que combinan Nike Genicco. Este conjunto es muy fácil de copiar, sin embargo les recomiendo que se mantengan alejados de cualquier camisa con diseños o colores, porque entre más simple el conjunto interno es, más pueden jugar con los colores de su chaqueta y zapatos.

Medellin, Colombia. August 2014

 

Bogotano Look

Being in Bogota gives me an effortless sense of style. I’m always
impressed of how well dressed most of the population in Bogota is. It
might be because the cold weather or just a coincidence, but it really makes me proud to see elegance as a common Colombian trait.

Whenever I wear jeans I like to define my attire as effortless.
everything goes well with jeans! Especially brown leather like the Ben
Sherman brown leather oxfords I’m wearing.

The Mandarin blazer adds some character to my outfit and the printed scarf
that features all the tones of my outfit completes what I call a
Bogotano look.

————————————————————

Look Bogotano

El estar en Bogota me da una apreciación de estilo tan fácil! Es que siempre me siento impresionado de lo bien que la mayoría de la población Bogotana se viste. Podría ser por el clima frío o simplemente una coincidencia, pero realmente me hace sentir orgulloso de ver la elegancia como algo común en Colombia.

Siempre cuando me pongo jeans; siento que mi atuendo no tiene mucho esfuerzo, casi todo se ve bien con jeans! Especialmente el cuero cafe como los zapatos Ben Sherman que me puse.

La chaqueta de cuello mandarin (cuello corto levantado) le da un poco de carácter al atuendo y la bufanda estampada con todos los tonos de mi atuendo completan lo que me gusta llamar un look Bogotano.

Perfect Summer Attire

When wearing more than one top is unbearable because the summer heat, the buttoned up trend can spice up your summer attire. It’s not like one button or two will make any difference when the humanity or hot sun rays are on your way.

The relaxed fit grameen check shirt I’m wearing is by Tailor Vintage. It is 100% cotton yarn dye check fabric handmade by rural loom weavers in Bangladesh. You can find more styles by clicking here.

I also added a stylish hat to combat the summer rays and take this outfit to the next level. This leather fedora is from Colombia & it matches perfectly my oxford Aldo shoes.

Classic Fit Shirt with Fitted Shorts

Lately “The fitter the better” has became the norm. Men feel more confident than ever to wear tight clothes, this is why almost every brand carries slim fit clothes that enhance the men’s figure.

However, when is slim fit a little too much? It’s really a matter of preference, personally I think as much as I love fitted clothes, there are times I want a more generous cut that gives me comfortably.

in this look I decided to wear a traditional fit button down with much more fitted shorts because the contrast between the two gives my outfit balance and individuality.

Camouflage, Blue, Black & Grey

It’s my second time wearing camouflage with a blazer, this time with different colors. You can see the other look by clicking HERE.

Easy as matching the colors of the print, this outfit is especially perfect for Florida, where the heat is unbearable and cuffed pants & tank tops are part of the norm. 

I especially like how tank tops look with blazers, because just as deep-neck T-shirts, tank tops enhance your chest and the blazer adds the formality a gentleman always wants to transmit.

Spice up Your Summer Outfit With Some Printed Shorts

With warm weather almost anything is acceptable, but I’m not going to tell you to put anything crazy on. Instead, I’m going to show you how I spice up a simple “one tone outfit” (outfits containing different shades of the same color, my latest obsession!) only by adding one of a kind prints in the right places.

Look for prints that aren’t that common. If you want to innovate a little,  definitely skip the floral print and patterns because it’s what everyone is already wearing. For instance, I picked these Taylor Vintage shorts for their very unique print & the best is that they are reversible, so it’s like I got 2 in 1.

This look features different shades of pink with white Steve Madden ‘Reston’ Leather sandals at the bottom and a very light Jean Paul Gaultier panama hat at the top. Get the reversible shorts by clicking here and pair it with a polo like my pastel pink you can get by clicking here

Cuffed Pants

I’m not getting any taller and the skinny pants trend isn’t anywhere. I figured the best way to add a little personality to my bottoms is to roll them up. 

How to cuff your pants? Whether you’re doing it to show your shoes or socks, if you over do it, it can look very wrong. The cuff should start at the top of each ankle and it should be 2-3 inches thick. This is my personal taste, but I assure you it will make you look neat at all times.

My most comfortable shoes are featured in this look too. TOMS Cordones have a very simple but beautiful design, perfect for almost any occasion. I decided to wear them with a corduroy blazer, and a buttoned up shirt to add neatness to my Bogota look.
