Menswear Monday: Fall Footwear Preview

Hello gents! As summer slowly winds down and fall starts to make its approach, I thought I’d help you get ahead of the style game by highlighting three must haves in men’s fall footwear. These timeless shoe staples are ones that you can keep on rotation in your wardrobe starting now and transition effortlessly into your fall wardrobe as the weather cools down.

Without further ado, here are three men’s footwear staples to get you ready for fall:

Workwear Boots:

The durable workboot has been a strong part of men’s wardrobes for a long time. The silhouette has been updated a bit over the years, and this season, we’re seeing a focus on a deep toe and tongue-to-toe lacing. Opt for neutral tones in brown for the most versatile look. You can dress them up with a smart pair of trousers or keep them casual with jeans.

2. Chippewa American Handcrafted GQ Rodeo Boot

3. Carhartt 6” Moc Toe Wedge Safety Toe Boot

Ankle Boots:

The next essential fall shoe I want to bring to your attention is the reliable ankle boot. Yes, it’s been around forever, but the styling of the ankle boot seems to keep evolving. You’ll find many celebrities wearing this with everything from distressed jeans to dressed-up trousers. To dress down the look for the weekend, I suggest pairing them with low-key denim and a light knit sweater or long-sleeved shirt.

Chelsea Boots:

Last but certainly not least is the flat Chelsea boot. This is a great addition to any wardrobe for that traditional look that never goes out of style. This season, invest in a rich leather Chelsea with a low stacked heel or maybe something a little more casual with exposed stitching. Either way, this classic shoe pairs very well with just about anything, from your favorite jeans and a tee to chinos and a button-up shirt for the office.

New Brand Spotlight: toesox

Toesox, toeless socks, yoga socks, workout socks, sports socks, dance socks, compression socks, yoga accessories, yogaThe toesox® story began in 2004. Founders Joe and Christina Patterson noticed feet slipping during yoga class, people with cold toes, and soles in need of protection from germs. To address these problems, the Pattersons created a five-toe sock to aid students during yoga, Pilates, barre, and dance fitness classes.

This husband and wife team really thought of everything. Each sock has a non-slip, rubber-dotted sole to help prevent feet from slipping on yoga mats and floors. Their “grip socks” feature an arch support band and fitted heel that keep the sock in place on the foot too. Your toes will stay warm during workouts, but they even have a “half-toe” style (basically toeless socks) just in case you need sole protection but like to your toes out. All toesox styles feature a design that allows toes to spread freely, promoting healthy feet, enhanced blood circulation, and a hygienic alternative to being barefooted.

Toesox are used for many other fitness-related activities to prevent blisters and allow your toes to spread out for balance. Also, depending on the activity, their “sport socks” collection utilizes a range of weights, from ultra light to a heavier compression sock. So whether you are doing martial arts, cycling, running, stretching or spinning, toesox has a sock for every activity.

You can keep your individuality too with unique screen-printed designs, bright colors or more classic tones.

Almost all of adidas bags offer the same technology regardless of size or type.

9 Blue Picks to Brighten Your Day!

Some days, it is great to have “the blues”.  There is nothing like channeling your inner goddess in a beautiful sapphire blue dress, or feeling soft and romantic in a dusty periwinkle.  The beauty of blue is that it can be fierce and powerful, soft and gentle, feminine and strong; the deciding factor is the shade of blue and of course, your attitude. Blue is a color used to represent strength, loyalty, trust, intelligence and authority. Until Queen Victoria was given a diamond when she was betrothed, stones in shades of blue were the premier choice suitors used to make clear their intention. 

These days, all the shades of blue are a fabulous alternative to fitting into any situation- and not just relying on black to fit in. Blue can be a casual or formal color and is appropriate for both professional and formal events. Personally, I’m a fan of blue because I love that it can be so many things -- just like me. It all just depends on how it’s worn.  I also love the way blue stands out in a sea of black, soothing and calming you and those around you while saying, “Hey, I’m here to rock, not be the same as everyone else.” This week, I’ve brought you some examples of how versatile blue can be. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

Fresh Picks: Cover-Ups You Won't Want to Take Off

They say it’s what’s on the inside that counts, but when it comes to swimwear cover-ups, we say what’s on the outside is just as important! When you’re on your way to or coming from a blissful day of sunning and poolside lounging, a gorgeous cover-up dress, poncho, tunic or romper is the easiest way to incorporate style to your swim look.

There are tons of lovely cover-up options to choose from; there’s the playful romper with a sporty vibe, there’s the boho-inspired embroidered sheer tunic, or even a full-length maxi dress if you want a little more coverage for seaside dinner dates. To create the most polished swim pairing, make sure your bikini or one-piece suit doesn’t clash with your cover-up. Pick a cover-up in coordinating tones, or if you’re going for a bold print, opt for a subtler solid bathing suit underneath. You can also play around with mixing prints; just make sure they compliment each other rather than competing two bold prints at the same time.

Below are a few of our favorite cover-ups to love this summer!

Menswear Monday: Classic Shirts with a Modern Twist

Let’s start this Menswear Monday off with one of my favorite mottos: “change is good.” Here at Zappos, one of our Core Values is “Embrace and Drive Change;” so why not take this philosophy and make it apply to your wardrobe? Don’t get me wrong, I think basics serve as the foundation to any well-dressed gentleman’s wardrobe. However, why not “flip the script,” so to speak, on some classic fashion staples? Listed below are some examples of how contemporary designs have influenced classic menswear staples.

Fashion is all about experimentation, so do be afraid to incorporate a new color, pattern, or print into your wardrobe. Many of today’s top fashion brands have implemented contemporary twists into their collections through the use of mixed-media fabrications, unique dye processes, and bold prints. A classic polo shirt with a striking dip-dye effect can easily add a contemporary twist to your look without being too bold. If you find yourself a little on the conservative side when it comes to your style, feel free to try out a long sleeve raglan Henley with contrast colored sleeves to add some visual interest to your look.

These contemporary design twists can easily elevate your look from casual to dressy. Pair slim-fitting dark jeans or chinos with a garment-washed denim shirt for a date night look. When happy hour is calling your name, a color-blocked polo paired with flat front shorts and boat shoes is a look that certainly summer ready.
