FRIDAY FASHION FILES: MEN STYLE

men-style-1

Today I am stepping a little bit out of my comfort zone: we are gonna talk about men fashion! Not that I’m an expert on the subject but living with a little guy and a big guy for some years now I had to gain some knowledge about men style. My partner often complains that it is difficult to find good quality men clothes that are stylish yet not too trendy. I kept this in my mind when selecting images and items for this post. I know that there are a lot of men reading the style files and I hope you will enjoy this post. And for the ladies: perhaps the suggestions can serve as inspiration for the upcoming gift season. For more inspiration you can visit my Men Style Pinterest board. Shops for men that I like are Mr. Porter and East Dane.

FRIDAY FASHION FILES: LOOKING GOOD IN NAVY

Black is a safe color if you are looking to assemble a stylish outfit. But what about navy? I personally think that this color is equally as chic as black but is a little bit less safe. Above some example of navy colored items.

1. beautiful jumpsuit by Malene Birger | 2. soft leather clutch | 3. Chain Link Woven Shoulder Bag by Missoni | 4. arrow stack necklace from Madewell | 5. cardigan with shawl collar from Vince | 6. shells and stones bracelet from Antik Batik | 7. soft leather clutch by Lauren Merkin | 8. quilted leather gloves.

FASHION FRIDAY FILES: FALL OUTFIT

We have had some beautiful sunny autumn days here but today it is raining. So time to search for some nice Fall outfits which are stylish yet warm and comfortable. I love the classic military-inspired double-breasted coat (1). It is classic but with a hip edge. The faux fur coat (4), which is very trendy this season, has a more glamorous look.

1. military inspired wool coat | 2. leather satchel with studs | 3. faux fur cashmere gloves | 4. faux fur coat | 5. beaded tassel necklace | 6. soft leather clutch | 7. the perfect bootie.

FASHION FRIDAY: ISABEL MARANT

I loves the clothing from French fashion designer Isabel Marant and also this year the Etoile Fall/Winter collection did not disappoint me (au contraire – I could spend a fortune on this collection). The beautiful look book was shot by photographer Karim Sadli. Isabel Marant designs are quite expensive so I am thrilled that she has designed a collection for H&M (which means affordable!) which will be available mid November. You can see a sneak peek of this H&M collection in the last image of this post.

WHITES WITH A HINT OF BROWN

Today is about white with a hint of brown. The brown color, which can be wood, leather or a brown colored blanket, gives some warmth to the crispy white tones.
