Fashion

Talk about a clean and minimal collection of shoes, Feit did their thing for the fall and winter of 2014. You never really understand simplicity until you’ve seen it done right, and the hi and low-top bicolor sneakers up top are calling my name. Be sure to visit FEIT and check out what else they  have to offer for both Men and Women from their previous catalogs

Monochrome

I love wearing black and white during the summertime.  I really love how women effortlessly pull off wearing black and white as well, which is what inspired this outfit. I kept this look simple by styling the shoes around a classic t-shirt and pair of jeans, followed by a grey sweatshirt tied around my waist, which I thought was a cool finishing touch to the outfit. What do you think of today’s look ?

Off-White 

I found this dope off-white jacket last week for super cheap at the Gap. I honestly can’t wait to wear it more when fall finally hits. This jacket was a little tricky for me to style at first, I went through a few looks till I landed on this one. The look showcases a mix of neutral earth tones with a pop of color from the sneakers. Let me know what you think of today’s look?

Earn Your Rayas

Due to the summer heat I haven’t been wearing blazers/sports coats like I want to. But for the past few weeks it’s been feeling like fall. The humidity has gone down and cool breeze has been on the rise. So i felt like this was the perfect time to showcase how you can style a sports coat if your city is cooling down as well. This is a super casual look that’s great for a stroll through your city or a date night with your significant other. When it comes to wearing a t-shirt under a blazer, either go simple with a neutral color like grey or white, or add some funk with a striped or polka-dot tee. What do you think of todays look?

A Collected Want:
Aime Leon Dore | Pre-Fall 0114

I stumbled up this brand while scrolling through tumblr last week and I was really impressed by their lookbook. I really loved the simplicity of the editorial as the color palette they used for the gear. But i was most impressed by the price range, nothing they’re offering is over $200 dollars. Sure, you can get most of the pieces their offering cheaper elsewhere, but for what it’s worth, I don’t think you can go wrong snagging a piece or two. Most of everything from the collection  is available now. I got my eye on the Nylon Parka, French Terry Sweat Pant, and Aime Crew. Let me know what you guys think of their collection .

White.

I wanted to take a crack at wearing white on white and this is the look that I came up with. I wanted the top and bottoms to be white with a pop of color styled around it. I believe that a denim jacket and a pair of limited edition gold sneakers were balanced out with the crisp white attire. What do you think of today’s look? Have you ever worn white on white before?

Gel Lyte III - KFE by Ronnie Fieg X Asics

I managed to get my hands on a pair of limited edition shoes before they sold-out last Saturday online. I’ve been eyeing them for a while now, but I thought I wasn’t going to be able to get them because I’ve never had good luck getting limited edition shoes when they are released online. Let me know what you guys think of them? Be sure to check out acollectedgentleman.com on Monday to see how I styled them.

LL Cool Days

I know in certain states you’ll bust out in sweats wearing a t-shirt, let alone a sweatshirt, but if you live in cooler areas I suggest you give one a try. Where I’m at it’s been cloudy and rainy which has led to cooler days, so when I found this sweatshirt at the goodwill this past weekend I was super excited to style it. The sweatshirt is a super casual classic piece that I love to wear , especially during fall and winter.

We Are Champions

Champion couldn’t have reached out to work with me at a better time. At the end of this past April I decided I really wanted to focus on getting back in shape.  Last year was tough for me, especially dealing with senioritis, that whole year I put my health on the back burner. But now I’m focused, working out and eating extremely better. It feels good to see results from the hard work and dedication you’ve put in. That’s why I was super excited to work with champion, who I’ve always been a super fan of. They offer amazing products for both Men  and Women that don’t compromise your style or budget. While I was coming up with ideas on how I wanted to put this post together, initially I was just going to do a workout look. But then I thought it would be cool to do a causal one as well, something you can wear after you workout, shower and head out to run errands. Be sure to visit Champion and check their collection of workout and casual gear. Right now they’re offering 40% site wide as well as free shipping on $75+  orders. 

P.S.  After you’ve snagged some gear from Champion, be sure check out this workout couple called FitnessBlender on youtube. They offer %100 percent free full length workout videos, from kickboxing to nutritional tips, they cover it all. I’ve been doing their workouts for two months now and I have achieved great results from them.

Pop of Summer

One of my favorite shirts to wear during the summer is the Popover. If you ever wanted the balance of a polo and button down, this is the shirt for you.This has to be one of my all-time favorite shirts that I’ve found while thrifting. I’m hoping I can find a few more while I’m out thrifting. But right now J.Crew is offering 30% off select styles and they have some great looking popover shirts. 

Outfit Details: 508 Regular Taper Jeans by Levi’s - $50 || Pomona Oxford by Bass - $60 || Short Sleeve Popover in Floral Print by Ralph Lauren, Consignment Store - $12
