A dark velvet blazer is always an elegant option for the evening. The velvet blazer is just as versatile as a standard equivalent, meaning it shouldn’t be confined to the party season or the boardroom but should be let out to play on the weekends and on nights out too.
Whether it’s for a day in the office, a black tie event or the festive party season, the velvet blazer should always be given due consideration. It looks just as good when worn with the full sartorial effort as with a pair of jeans.

Summer is just a month away and it demands color. Summer is all about classic elegance with a nonconformist spirit, just to spice things up. This is the spirit that RODA has in its core. The RODA man is Italian in spirit, sometimes irreverent with colors and finds inspiration in the taste of the English gentleman.
RODA’s spring/summer collection is no exception. The colors are even more exuberant, the inspiration comes from the work “Homage to the square” by Joseph Albers and the feeling that you get is a game of multicolored geometric shapes and strong tones. It is purely a collection of refinement and elegance.
Eating a balanced diet is a sure way to maintain good health. ‘Your skin should benefit, too,’ says Kate Forbes, head of research and development at Aesop, the Melbourne-based skincare brand. ‘The topical application of preparations that deliver vitamins directly to the skin can offer additional benefits that can minimise the effects of daily environmental damage and pollution.’ For combination skin, Forbes prescribes Aesop B Triple C Facial Balancing Gel, which contains vitamins B and C, witch hazel to soothe and hydrate blemish-prone skin, and Aesop Damascan Rose Facial Treatment, which delivers doses of vitamins E and A to revitalise skin after a season of central heating and harsh weather.
The other day, a friend of mine asked me how I take care of my skin. Skin care is an everyday routine. It takes place two times in the day: in the morning and in the evening.
It starts of with washing your face and body and then you wipe gently. Then, it is time to moisturize. I start with my eyes and a revitalizing gel so that I can get rid of my puffiness and dark circles, that are created due to the fact that I work a lot in front of a computer and I don’t sleep a lot. Then, I moisturize the rest of my face and neck and I prefer a product with matte finish, so that I look natural, and has SPF so that I can prevent my face from the sun. It is important to use SPF even in Winter, because the sun is there even if we do not see it. Next, is my lip care. I use a lip balm for that.
Twenty-first century man is so busy and has to be in many places without having time to change outfits. He constantly has to look sharp and well-put-together. This is an everyday challenge that men face and we will try in this article.
First of all though, let’s meet the two men that will help us. The first one is Ryder and the other one is Clément. Ryder is an economical analyst. His style is preppy and his favorite color is navy. He loves to be sharp and ready for whatever comes in his way. Clément is a senior fashion editor for a fashion magazine. He loves experimenting with his style and his favorite color is black. He loves black and white when he is dressing himself just because he sees so much color in his career. Though, he introduces some color through accessories.
Secondly, let’s see what piece of clothing we are going to see them wearing through their day. Of course, it is a black skinny suit, as it is very classic and extremely versatile. The black skinny fit blazer and trousers that we see here is by Topman, available at Nordstrom. I decided to go with this partnership just because there is a huge amount of different style clothes and they are affordable as much as they are qualitative.
Spring is finally here. The weather is just getting better and better. There are colors in nature and it is the time of the year that we transition from our winter wardrobes to our summer ones. Fashion becomes brighter and for me it is just another excuse to buy more clothes, shoes and accessories.
Nordstrom is one of my favorite places to start searching for my new obsessions. As it is mentioned in their site: “Fashion changes. Shopping changes. Their commitment to happy costumers doesn’t.”, that’s why I like Nordstrom. They see fashion as a business of optimism and that is the spirit that you get. Optimism that emanates from experience of helping their customers possess style and not just buy fashion. Nordstrom tries and gives you a really pleasant experience in shopping either it is through going to one of their stores or by paying a visit at their online site or their mobile application.
