If you haven’t noticed, monochromatic colors are very much in style this season.

So, you speak of these monochromatic colors, but what the heck does that even mean? As mentioned in a previous post, monochromatic colors fall within the same hue, tint, or shade. Just imagine a solid a top and shorts set, all from the same color family. Sounds cute, right?

Well, if you don’t believe us, check out this week’s featured outfit.

Today, Dyandra Raye is giving us life in her red suit. Worn casually or dressed up with a pair of heels, this suit is ideal for spring.

According to Dyandra Raye, “The length of this blazer is great for multiple wears. You can wear it open for a more casual look or button up for a dressier occasion. I layered a white tank underneath to create a Spring appropriate look. A black layering piece will work perfectly for a night look!”

Overall, we love this loos! With such a vibrant color scheme, Dyandra looks straight out of a magazine.

How Did I Wear…

How did I wear…a floral print blazer?

In celebration of this beautiful day, I spent the entire afternoon sketching up a storm. Traditionally, most of my illustrations are usually high fashion or super hero related. However, I do have a soft spot for the plant species. More specifically, leaves, flowers, and trees. Weird, I know.

Tip: Although this may not be a fashion tip, but finding leisure activities like sketching, painting, jogging, or running, are great for relaxation. These are normally my “go-to” problem solvers when getting over writers block.

With all that being said, I ventured outside today in a lightweight, floral jersey blazer.

Floral print blazer?!

How ironic, right? Not exactly!

Tip: Fellas, don’t be scared of floral prints. They are for everyone. You can add a masculine touch by wearing a solid color tank or tee underneath. When in doubt, go with black.

Although I haven’t worn this blazer since it’s initial purchase last spring, it’s sharp enough to wear in 2016 as well.

For this particular look, I went with an 80s theme. By styling the blazer with a nude v-neck tee and light wash denim jeans, I was able to channel my inner Mike from Growing Pains. For all you 90s babies, look him up.

Tip: If your blazer is too big, simply roll up the sleeves and strut your stuff in confidence. Baggy is back, and you should embrace every bit of the retro age.

In continuing with this theme, I went with a pair of slip on sneakers in khaki from ASOS. The color alone is very “landscape” friendly.

Traveling light is a lot easier than it sounds, especially if you are away for more than two days.

To reduce the number of bags during my weekend getaways, I typically travel in layers.

Why? When wearing an extra shirt or two, you can add more storage to an already, stuffed bag.

For this week’s #mensstylemondays post, I decided to show off a very travel friendly inspired look.

This outfit consists of a fitted sweatshirt, distressed denim jeans, and chelsea boots. With the longline tee layered under the sweatshirt, this outfit screams Yeezy. I could definitely see Kanye wearing this look in the airport, especially with the match bag and chelsea boots.

How did I wear…a printed kimono?

After a series of failed attempts, I finally figured out how to style this printed Kimono the right way.

Tip: Styling a kimono is a lot easier than it sounds. Depending on the material, you should consider wear light weight garments underneath.

My original plan was to do the whole double denim thing again. Obviously, that didn’t go as planned. It was a little too warm outside. So, I had to readjust.

Tip: Since the kimono is the perfect spring accessory, try to wear it over a neutral colored tank or tee.

Next, I attempted to wear a brightly colored tank, with skinny jeans. Although that look sounded like a great idea, it wasn’t good enough.

Tip: ASOS has a variety of kimonos available for men. They run anywhere between $20-$40, which isn’t bad considering they are pretty hard to find.

Right before giving up, I decided to go with an all black look at the last minute. The graphic tee and denim shorts bring more to the table than my other failed looks.
