Although I have never blogged about menswear before, I am highly interested in it and I have actually designed quite a bit of menswear. When I watched the 2013 Grammys, I was instantly intrigued with Fun’s front-man, Nate Ruess. I became infatuated with his style the first time I saw them perform “We Are Young” at the 2012 MTV Movie Awards. I remember, to this day, loving the aesthetics of his look. I was then reminded at this years Grammy’s performance when he rocked a muted-silver, pleather, button-up and navy blue capris. Yes, I just said capris…on a man. I LOVE IT. I instantly fell in love and, of course, have been nagging my boyfriend non-stop to mirror this same look and, with much apprehension, he is coming around to the idea. Since then, I have seen this trend everywhere and it makes me very happy. So ladies share this link with your boyfriends, and gentlemen take notes because this is a perfect effortless look for spring and summer.
Below is the video of Fun’s Grammy’s performance.
Here are some collages I’ve created to illustrate this look, with places to purchase below.
H&M, Forever 21 Mens and Urban Outfitters are also more affordable places to shop short-sleeve button downs for men.
H&M and ASOS are other affordable places for Chinos.
Derby shoes can be found everywhere right now. My favorite ones are made by Common Projects and Ted Baker, I also really like the idea of a Derby-Sneaker blend. They can be found at ALDO, Nordstroms and even H&M.
Hope this proved useful!
Until next time,
