Casual & Comfortable

       

Ever since the Olympic games in 2012, sportswear trend is getting stronger and stronger. Sportswear is not any more associated with leisure and a casual approach to dressing. It has been interpreted in luxury sportswear. The element of luxury lay in the fabric and the cut, with garish neons being replaced with well placed zips and asymmetrical lines. Although, I am not a big fan of sportswear, I decided to give it a try. I found that a good pair of jogging pants could take you almost everywhere, looking well-put-together while maintaining all the advantages of sportswear (comfortable).


First though, let me take you to where it all begun. I paid an online visit to Nordstrom. On Nordstrom not only you can find a plethora of options to pick from, as I have mentioned many times in the past, but also you can find interesting outfits styled by professional stylists. Just for your info, they have over 2,000 different types of casual and dress shirts at my last count, so anyone can find a perfect item. 

       

Here you can find the pair of jogging pants that I like the most. It is a pair of denim jogger pants that not only are comfortable but also very stylish. As you can see in my next few outfit ideas, they are extremely versatile:

Rethink Your Skin Care

image

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.

You can shop the Aesop products online from MRPORTER.com and Net-a-Porter.com

8 Grooming Products Every Man Needs This Summer

Men’s fashion month for Spring/Summer 2015 is over and I am decoding all the new trends to come. New fashion pieces are something that gets me so excited for, but then there’s street style. Street style for me is all about self-expression and this fashion month was not an exception for great looks. What I liked the most on all these fashion-forward and ever stylish men, was not their clothing though. It was the way their hair and facial hair were taken care of.

Evolution Man

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.

SHY BOY

Take Saint Laurent's bomber jacket – it's cool and slick, but get up close and personal, and you find it's made of exquisitely satin. Or Maison Martin Margiela's leather oxford shoes – they're an essential piece for every man.

Topman at Nordstrom

image

               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.
