Ahh, Spring!  It’s something very refreshing about Spring and the fact that we had a very grueling Winter makes Spring much more appreciative.  With that said guys, why not break from the typical and traditional dark colors in favor of some warm weather and some brighter colors.  In this case, I decided to throw on a pastel style gingham shirt from J. Crew with some slim (no skinny, I’m a grownup) jeans from Gap. The tie comes from Frank and Oak, the belt is J. Crew and shoes are classic Chuck Taylor low tops.

Thanks Eric for joining me on Style & Beauty Talk With Paris! If you happen to miss the show where Eric and I discussed Men’s Fashion, be sure to visit the earlier post 😉

My name is Eric and I’m a part of The Misteree Project (a freelance writing and filming team) as well as TmP Life (a lifestyle blog of pictures, poetry, and thoughts). I’ve studied fashion trends for a few years now. I am not a certified fashion consultant, but I am hip to the styles and trends for a professional guy like myself. Fashion is about forward-thinking and belonging to the person who owns it. Plus ladies, let’s keep it real; you love to see a stylish man! Therefore, I’d like to share the tips and tricks I go for, and hopefully, it’ll make all the while for your style. Thank you, Paris, for giving me the opportunity to help the guys get it cracking!

I was told once that a man should always dress like he took the time to shop for something but took no time to put something on. The problem with some guys now is that complacency sets in which causes very dull and plain looks. Hey, if that’s what you are comfortable with, then do you. I, on the other hand, like to experiment a little with certain pieces I have. By me being a slim and slender guy, I tend to go for a more fitted style to match my build. As you can see from the picture (which was captured on the slick by my buddy Paris Hatcher), I chose a green button down fitted shirt with white polka dots and blue jeans. (Here’s a little sidenote-I’m all about the button down shirts and slacks or jeans) I added the black skinny tie just for a little extra casual appeal with the black belt to match. The Toms shoes set it off a little bit more because it was offbeat. One valuable aspect of fashion is that everything you wear doesn’t have to match exactly. It’s okay to throw something off with a bit of color opposite of everything else. But we’ll get into that later.
