Menswear Monday: 3 Air Travel Essentials

Guys, get your boarding passes ready! Flying is about to become less of a hassle and more of an anticipated opportunity to show off your great style thanks to a few comfy, travel-ready basics. Air travel has more than its fair share of annoyances—from long lines at the security gate to delayed flights, there’s no reason why your outfit shouldn’t come prepared for anything the travel gods may have in store!

We like to think of dressing for the airport as a lesson in stylish simplicity and impeccable utility. Keep things as streamlined as possible by cutting out unnecessary elements when going through security: belts, shoelaces—they’re outta there!

An airport-friendly outfit starts with a great pair of stretchy pants like a slim jogger or athleisure sweatpant. It’s super convenient when going through security (no belts!) and makes for a comfortable plane ride no matter how long your flight may be. Since airports and plane cabins tend to be pretty cold at times, it’s a great idea to always have a nice hoodie sweatshirt handy. Just throw on your hood, slip on your sleep mask and drift away 30,000 feet in the air.

Last, but certainly not least, a pair of effortlessly versatile shoes is a traveler’s best friend. Slip-on sneakers are a great option for air travel because they’re not only easy to run in (gate changes and missed alarms do happen!), but getting through security is a breeze without having shoelaces to contend with.

Menswear Monday: 3 Slip-On Summer Shoes You Need Now

Hello gents! As temperatures begin to rise, so does the need for comfy and stylish slip-on shoes. Last year, slip-on shoes were pretty popular and the trend will continue on this year. Below, I’ve rounded up three different types of slip-on shoes to wear to different occasions all season long.

First off is the quintessentially summer espadrille slip on. These shoes are not only comfortable, they can easily be dressed up or down, making it the perfect go to all season long. For example, you can pair them with a simple blazer, button-up shirt and a pair of tailored shorts, or you could just as easily pair them with a simple T-shirt and everyday jeans. I’d suggest picking up a white pair, navy blue or black pair and one in a fun print.

2. UGG Kas

3. OTZ Espadrille

The next slip on that should be on your shopping list is the driving shoe. These are the perfect option to dress up a look without having to wear actual dress shoes. Driving shoes are a great option to wear to work on a casual Friday or even on a date, paired with a button-up shirt and slacks. These also look great with a nice pair of jeans!

Menswear Monday: Spring Footwear Guide

When it comes to the world of men’s shoes, it really is an exciting time to be a guy. Not that I have experience in it firsthand, but I definitely believe that a well-dressed man isn't complete without the perfect pair of shoes, am I right? There are lots of awesome footwear options this spring for guys to put on heavy rotation—from sandals to sneakers; we’re seeing lots of old favorites making a triumphant comeback in stylish new ways!

Below is our shortlist of top styles to note this spring for men’s footwear—straight from the runways to real life. There’s really something for every guy. There’s the laidback fisherman sandal, which by the way, is one throwback style that’s making a very unexpected but welome return.

There’s also a huge focus on retro-style sneakers from New Balance, Nike and other classic athletic brands. These aren’t just for the gym or running errands, gents. On the contrary, the most stylish guys are wearing them with everything from chinos and a blazer to even mixing things up by rocking them with their corporate business suits! They sure make those morning commutes a lot more comfortable.

If you’re less on-the-go dude and more beach-bum material this spring and summer, you’ll love the leather slides that are popping up all over the place, particularly in leather. Birkenstock sandals, anyone?

For the more preppy gentlemen out there, there’s something for you, too. The moccasin loafer is a great option for a more laidback addition to your chinos and other office staples. Who knew your dad’s favorite shoe would be deemed as one of the season’s most on-trend men’s shoe must haves? Fashion really has a cyclical nature, doesn’t it?
