Give your outfit a cool, lived-in feel with distressed denim and clothing with raw edges. Balance out the rawness of the look by mixing it with some sassy heels and more ladylike or tailored pieces.

Great-fitting trousers and jeans are an essential addition to any man’s wardrobe, particularly in the fall & winter. Just as you lighten up your fabric assortment for the spring/summer season, it's time to grab the heavier fabrics for the cold-weather months. Think tweed trouser, corduroys, cotton twill chinos and selvedge denim—more substantial fabrics that look and fit fantastic.
What is also great about these, besides keeping you warm, is that they fit with all of the other items we're suggesting you invest into. Not to mention, when this season passes and spring/summer comes back around, you can store these up and wear them again for cold-weather months to come! That’s the advantage of investing in timeless wardrobe pieces—longevity that goes beyond fly-by-night trends.
All in all, this is a great time of year to get creative with your personal style. Step out of your norm and try new layering and mix-and-match techniques. You may just find yourself liking it!
There are few things we love more than living in a cozy cocoon of soft, oversized sweaters on chilly fall days. It’s like the sartorial equivalent of having a nice cup of hot chocolate!
Today’s street style inspiration is a perfect example of maximizing the cozy factor with easy sweaters and effortless accessories.

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then street style replication is fashion flattery at its finest.
Today’s inspiration is as cozy as they come. We love the modern, tough-girl iteration of shearling, particularly when paired with printed jeans.

Aside from ice-cold lemonades, one of the things we seem to always reach for on those scorching summer days is denim shorts. It’s a good thing there are so many shorts trends worth showing off this season, from dip dye treatments to novelty prints to classic dark denim shorts.
There are an infinite number of possibilities when it comes to showing some leg this summer!
Check out some of our recent favorites in denim shorts:
It’s here! It’s finally here! If you’ve been waiting to shed those bulky layers and ditch those heavy coats and boots, you’re not alone in your anticipation. Tomorrow marks the first “official” day of spring, although here at the Zappos HQ in Las Vegas, it’s been feeling like spring for a few days now.
We’re super excited to start breaking out the pastels, slipping into those sandals, and adding in splashes of color into our wardrobes. Spring fashion IS the best part about the season after all! Well…the weather isn’t so bad either!
To mark this much-awaited season of sunshine and new beginnings, we’re highlighting a few of our standout spring trends to get your closet ready. For even more on-trend picks, check out the The Style Room!
Borrowed from the boys:
One of the most essential foundations to any wardrobe is great-fitting basic jeans. These versatile closet superstars can be worn in tons of different outfits—from the most casual days with a white tee, to nights out with a sexy sheer blouse. The possibilities are endless!
Below are three of our must-have fits for every body type, along with the easiest-to-wear washes: standard blues (darker washes for dressier looks, lighter washes for daytime looks) and of course, basic black.
You can wear bootcut jeans with all sorts of shoes- from high heels to flip flops- depending on the length of the inseam. If your legs are on the shorter side, be wary of flares that are too wide, as they can make your legs look shorter. Opt for a slight flair below the knee and a close fit at the thighs.
These are a great halfway point between bootcuts and skinny jeans. Straight leg jeans lengthen the look of the leg, especially when worn with heels! We also love these with ballet flats. Just make sure the length of the inseam is to where it doesn’t gather at the bottom—this can make the jeans look sloppy.
Contrary to popular belief, almost any body type can wear skinny jeans. Just pay attention to the fit, particularly the level of stretch. Picking a darker wash can also give the illusion of a slimmer leg. If you’re on the petite side, pick a skinny jean with a mid to high rise to lengthen the look of your legs.
Inseam is also super important when picking skinny jeans. You want the hem to hit at or slightly above the ankle—unless you are doing a cropped skinny, in which case, you can go a little bit higher.
