Weekend Wardrobe v Weekday Wardrobe | Jacket Society–moncler mens jacket

Since I started the Jacket Society blog and womens Jacket line back in August of 2013,moncler t shirts I have been working from home. This has been a big transition for me since prior to that I had a full time job that I had to be in an office daily and dress accordingly. Actually most of my life I have had that kind of a job schedule and quite frankly I liked that schedule with the exception of a few years when my son was young and I felt I was missing out on his growing up. As you all know when you have your own business your mind never really shuts down from thinking about work. But when your office/studio is also at home,moncler gamme rouge it is even harder to distinguish specific work/play time. So I basically work 24/7,moncler hat that does not mean I work all the time,moncler femme it just means that I might work less on a week day but work all day Sunday. Your schedule becomes a lot more flexible and for the first time in my life I kind of like this schedule. I think it’s because I am older and I can discipline myself enough to be able to balance things the right way. This was a lot harder when I was younger,moncler clothing I really needed an office space and office hours to set my mind to work and then shut down. Having explained all this,moncler store my wardrobe habits have also changed with the changes in my work environment. What I wear during the week as work wardrobe is not that different from my weekend wardrobe.
For example here is what I wore last Saturday for lunch and running some errands. One of my favorite jackets I own which is not a Jacket Society piece nevertheless I wear it all the time. I love that it has a tailored clean look but because of its boxy shape you can wear it casually with anything. Today I chose to wear it with my white jeans which I wear year round and my favorite Cole Haan loafers. This outfit can easily be one of my outfits during the work week when I run downtown to source fabric or meet with my contractors.
How about you,cheap moncler jackets do you have a weekend wardrobe v weekday wardrobe.

The Modern And Unexpected Business Suit–cheap moncler jackets


The Modern And Unexpected Business Suit

In the last few seasons,moncler lans I have been seeing more and more sleeveless and short sleeve womens blazers on the runways. Long or short,moncler bady fitted or oversized,moncler polo shirt single breasted or double breasted,moncler trainers they have been popping up everywhere. Personally,moncler womens I have always been a big fan of sleeveless or short sleeve blazers. It is a chic and modern way to update a basic blazer,moncler hat especially for the spring summer season. Even though a lot of women have not caught on to this trend yet,montcler I think that they will as designers put out more and more of them. I have had my BCBG short cap sleeve double breasted blazer for a few years now and have worn it in many different ways. The way that I approach wearing this piece is like any other blazer I own in my wardrobe,moncler t shirts except I wear this on warmer days so I don’t need to wear a long sleeve under it. Granted you can definitely wear it with a long sleeve top as long as the sleeves are tight,moncler milano I personally like it with bare arms. A couple of days ago,moncler weste I was meeting a client for lunch in downtown Los Angeles, and I wanted to look business- like but still trendy and chic, so I decided to wear this jacket. As I was styling it, I thought to myself; why not wear it with tailored shorts as opposed to a pencil skirt or trousers? And when I put on my tailored Club Monaco shorts with it, I really liked the proportion and look of it. It was like wearing a “short suit” instead of “pant suit”. Now, I am very aware that I can get away with this kind of a business look because I work in the fashion industry and there is a lot of freedom with what you can call “business attire”. In many fields you may not be able to wear this to the office. But I am sure the short sleeve blazer will not be a problem for any office, maybe just not with shorts. What are your thoughts about short sleeve or sleeveless jackets? Will you be embracing this trend?

Currently they have a bunch of t- shirt tops with cool graphics on them. I have never really been someone to wear graphic t-shirts,moncler beanie but this top is really a bit more than that. The material is a really nice silk in the front and a soft jersey knit on the back with mesh sleeves and detailing,moncler shirt and the graphic on the front is a beautiful sketch drawing of a face with a splash of pink and purple color.

Menswear For Women – This Fall's 2013 Trend To Embrace | Jacket Society–moncler jacket

You better man upI have to say I am super excited about the “Menswear” trend for women for fall 2013. It is one of my favorite trends every time it comes along. Normally I love wearing the “Menswear” look even if it’s not currently in style.

This year the look has been updated with some looser pieces without taking away from the tailored and structured look that it originated from. There is also a sexy edge that makes the look more sophisticated but relaxed at the same time.

Personally I think the best way for women to wear menswear is to feminize it in some way. You don’t want to look like a man from head to toe,moncler boots so it is really important to mix the pieces the right way to get the ultimate look. There are different ways of doing this and here are some of my ideas on how I would approach them.

If you are wearing a men’s suit,moncler pet try a feminine blouse with it,veste moncler instead of a shirt,moncler jakke and wear some killer high heels. Menswear blazers also look great with soft skirts or pencil skirts,moncler bambino this definitely gives it a sexy edge. Another way of feminizing the look is by wearing soft accessories or mixing a bright color into the typical grays and blacks that usually define menswear.

As far as the bigger looser silhouettes that are on trend this season,moncler gamme bleu make sure you pair them with slimmer pieces to keep the look feminine and sexy.

I have put together a couple of inspirational pages here for you and I hope they will give you some ideas on what menswear jackets to shop for or if you already own one,moncler homme some fresh ideas on how to wear them. What is your favorite Menswear Look – Leave me a comment on your thoughts about this – I would love to hear them.

Paris fashion week is THE fashion week of all fashion weeks,moncler gilet a grand finale’ of the big four destinations.

A lot is always expected of the Paris shows and this year they surely delivered.  This fall season my favorite shows were mostly from Paris.  So much so that I could not edit them and decided to use a different format for posting my pictures so I could squeeze in more looks.  As you will see below,moncler mens jacket for this blog story,moncler lans I have put three pictures from each designer together to save space so I can feature more designers and more looks that I liked from all their collections.

From the pop up brasserie set at Chanel,online fashion store to the facial piercings at Givenchy and Owen Wilson and Ben Stiller walking the Valentino show to announce Zoolander 2,moncler outlet store the Paris shows were a nonstop feast for the eyes.  There was so much creative energy and inspiration packed into this one week of fashion events and shows,moncler acorus I loved it!

Even though there were some common trend elements in Paris that were seen in other cities fashion weeks,moncler pet mainly the 70’s influence,moncler size chart I felt Paris still had its own trends that were unique and not as universal as seen in the other shows.

Here are some of the key trends that I pick up on from the Paris shows:

  1. Sleeveless coats
  2. 70’s but with a twist
  3. Punk mixed with tailored looks
  4. Brocades and Jacquards
  5. Fur
  6. Pattern mix
  7. Tweeds
  8. Velvets
  9. Belts and ties
  10. Deconstructed looks and seams
  11. Extra long sleeves
  12. Floor length coats
  13. Black and white
  14. Tuxedo looks
  15. Hippie chic
  16. Fringe

There are so many great trends to pick and choose from here especially for jackets and outerwear.  As usual I love the tweeds and the interesting pattern mixes mainly at Haider Ackermann,moncler store Chanel and Lanvin.  It was so nice to see rich fabrics like velvets and brocades making a comeback but in a modern way for a change.  Even though they are not necessarily jacket related,moncler jakker I also loved all the neck ties at Chloe and floral corsages at Dries Van Notten.

Pretty In Pink With My Sonoma Stripe Jacket–moncler jacket


Pretty In Pink With My Sonoma Stripe Jacket

Saturday night we were meeting some friends for dinner and I decided to wear our Sonoma stripe jacket and style it with jeans for a different look than last time I styled this jacket- Here. The Sonoma jacket fabric is a nice soft and sanded cotton in cream with pink and grey pin stripes in it and the last time I wore it on the blog with a floral top. This is one of my favorite jackets and I get so many compliments when I wear it out,moncler gilet so I wanted to show you it all again but with simpler styling. For today’s look I have paired it with a pretty pink blouse and added a scarf and necklace to make it more interesting. I can’t imagine there are many women that don’t have something pink in their wardrobe,moncler shorts pink is after all the most popular female color,moncler size chart or is it?

According to some research studies,moncler shoes the long-held notion that women prefer pink while men prefer blue may hold some truth. And moreover,moncler jacke there might be a biological basis for why women prefer pink or at least more reddish tone colors than men. They suggest the explanation might go back to hunter-gatherer societies when women as primary gatherers would have benefited from an ability to identify ripe,moncler pet red fruits. Therefore getting used to seeing more of red and pinkish shades and associating it with health and beauty. As much as women tend to like these colors,moncler sale according to researchers,moncler kids blues are still the number one color for men and women. Who knows what to think about all the studies,cheap moncler jackets are we hard wired for colors? Blue for baby boys and pink for baby girls,moncler grenoble colors, it seems, influence our behaviour much more than we realize.

Personally I like pink, but I tend to gravitate towards earthier colors, like oranges and yellows. But whenever I wear pink I do see a glow on my skin and I feel very feminine in it, as cliché as that may sound. When I am looking for fabric for my jackets, or shopping for scarves and jewelry, I certainly keep pink in mind as a popular color among my customers. For this reason, it was easy to add accessories to my look from our Jacket Society accessory line for Saturday night. The scarf is a super soft geometric print with cute pink cotton tassels at each end and the necklace is another pretty long gold tone chain with a light pink acrylic stone and gold tone fringe.  Both are very versatile and perfect for spring to wear with so many different outfits. You can find the scarf here and the necklace here.

What are your thoughts on pink?
