Spring Reborn


Spring has arrived! This magical season is a time of rebirth and rejuvenation, out with the old and in with the new. Going along with this theme I wanted to talk about different ways to freshen your style by adding key accessories to your current look. (making last seasons outfit this seasons hot new trend)

Starting from the very top, adding a sharp hat to your ensemble is an easy way to take your look to the next level. Straw fedoras are light weight and lend very well to today's fashions. Pair this with a well fitted polo and Diesel Zathan you have a great preppy look or try our black checker fedora with a Wet Cement graphic tee and slim cut pair of Levis and you have a hip young style.

Showing a little chest is great idea when the sun is out, take your favorite V neck tee and accent your style with a unique necklace. I always like jewelry pieces that are a little out of the ordinary.
People always seem to forget that you can really make an outfit pop with the simplest accent. Belts are a great way to update a look. It's spring so rather than going with the classic black leather belt choose a little texture. Try a woven leather or canvas belt, these small details really do change the look, for a little edgier aesthetic try a bright color or studded belt. (hint it's SpringSummer throw a little white in the mix!)

Mix and match old and new pieces from your collection and you will find new possibilities in your wardrobe.
