Men: 10 things you should try

My guy friends are always simple and there to make me laugh even when I’m tired or sad. I’m really lucky to have them and in that gratitude moment, I’m going to share 10 fashion tips you boys, men, guys, whatever you want to call yourself, should follow to be even cuter and hotter…

1. Jeans shirt with a white tee. For a casual day at school or on the weekend, wear a jeans shirt with your sleeves rolled up a little bit and a white v-neck or round-neck (the one your prefer) under. It’s really hot, simple and versatile, so you can wear it a number of times. Button it half way or let it open for the best looks.

2. Robust boots. It’s winter and wearing your converse and snickers in the snow isn’t appropriate. Plus, when your feet are wet don’t tell me you’re comfortable! Put your feet into robust boots inspired by the construction or the military styles. It looks good and you won’t look like a fool with shoes in your feet during freezing weather.

3. Beige pants. For a more polished and preppy look, grab a pair of beige pants! It’s perfect for the spring season ahead and the color goes with absolutely everything. I’ve heard it’s more comfortable than wearing jeans, why not try it then?

4. Big watch. Men aren’t a lot into jewellery, but a nice big watch is a beautiful accessory that adds masculinity to an outfit. There are tons that have some gadgets and different settings, choose the one that you prefer!

5. Knit scarf. Since the weather is cold, show off you have style with a knit scarf in a vibrant color or a beige/gray color. It’s a very cute addition to your look!

6. Marine look.  Opt for the marine look, it’s so cute and fresh! Go with a blue and white striped tee or shirt, some loafers and you’re good to chill.

7. A sexy suit. Do you want to impress for a special occasion? A nice sexy suit will make you look handsome! Don’t forget to choose a suit that fits you and ask for help if you’re not sure.

8. Messenger bag. If you want to change from your usual backpack, go for a messenger bag. It’s smart, professional and stylish. Brown, tan, grey or black are neutral colors you should choose from so it can be a classic item in your wardrobe.

9. Grey sweater. There’s something about a grey v-neck sweater that’s just so simple yet so hot. Choose a comfortable fabric and you’ll love this basic shirt.

10. Smile. I know you want to seem like the tough big guy and that what I’m about to say  is really cheesy, but the best thing about a guy is when he smiles and that’s when you seem the most handsome possible. So go ahead and smile!

Hasta pronto!

Night out in the city

The weather is getting hotter and hotter, I’m so excited for summer! With this nice weather around, you just want to grab your friends and enjoy a night out in the city. Want to look urban chic this season? Add these three items to your wardrobe and you’re set to go. Enjoy the sangria!

1. Tailored shorts. Show of those sexy legs of yours in stylish tailored shorts (same material as work pants). Add a blouse or a simple tee and a blazer! With black shorts, go for a coral blouse!

2. Small clutch. An oversized tote can remove a bit of the chic factor of your outfit. Plus, it’s too big for a night out! Instead, opt for a small clutch in trendy colors (emeraude, coral and cyan blue) or a classic favorite!

3. Medium-height simple pumps. Sexy, stylish and yet more comfortable than super high heels so you can dance the night away. Add a pop of color to a neutral outfit with turquoise or red pumps. Be versatile with black, white or beige heels.

Enjoy your night!

Hasta pronto!
