I’m so exciting to be teaming up with my friends over at Old Navy to show you guys some of their awesome summer trends. I have been shopping at Old Navy since I was eight years old and always remembering feeling so cool and fresh when I got to splurge during back to school season at Old Navy! Now as a pretend grown up I look to them for classic staples and tailored twists on current trends. For Old Navy‘s June collection Ivory Coast the designers took the traditional cool black-and-white story and gave it an updated twist. Drawing from global influences and hand crafted African designs, this monochromatic collection weaves in soft, natural textures and angular geometric prints! I wanted to keep the look clean and tailored while still being comfortable, lightweight and polished. Pairing the artisan inspired minimal stripe back to a classic white jean helps keep the Ivory Coast trend cohesive, while the belt pulls it in for a tailored finish. Notice the styling details that elevate the look from dressed to styled. The clean front tuck is refined while the cuffed bottom is casual and effortless. The juxtaposition in the styling creates the polished, effortless chic look were after.Check out more of my favorite pieces from the Ivory Coast collection.
I often say that when it comes to mens skincare that sometimes the offerings can feel like an afterthought to the bigger brand at hand, however Clinique For Men has been able to stay away from falling into that stigma. I have been a faithful user to various items from Clinique For Men for about three years and often travel with them exclusively because the packaging is so durable. Today I’ll be walking you through a few of my favorites from the Clinique For Men line as well as an awesome new release I’ve fallen in love with.
My skin type is normal to dry and extremely dry during the summer months due to the sweating and excessive heat in Texas. Every night I slather on my routine to preserve hydration however the newly released Maximum Hydrator from Clinique For Men has cut that routine in half and doubled the results. It gives skin an instant 179% moisture boost, Innovative Liquid-Sphere technology combines water-binding ingredients with encapsulated antioxidants to help break the cycle of dryness and environmental stress that can age skin’s appearance. It absorbs instantly, leaving skin soothed, comfortable and fresh.

Because I do sweat a lot this can cause build up and debris sitting in the pores, using a detox mask once a week is great way to combat the build up but if you or your guy likes to keep it simple add in this Clinique For Men Charcoal Face Wash into the routine a couple times a week. The charcoal works as a magnet to pull excess oils and environmental debris from the pores that can cause clogging. It’s soothing, nondrying lather gently foams away impurities, leaving all skin types feeling fresh and comfortable without stripping.

The Clinique for Men Sonic System Deep Cleansing Brush is my go to suggestion for guys who want to invest in a cleansing device but don’t want to spend over $100. This Dermatologist-developed cleansing brush is the perfect pair to the previously mentioned Charcoal Face Wash . The Sonic System Deep Cleansing Brush features more than 9,000 sonic pulsing vibrations per minute and cleanses more thoroughly than hand washing alone. It preps your skin for more comfortable shaving, leaving it looking and feeling energized. I would love for Clinique For Men to release a luxe version of this tool that features a rotating brush head for an ever deeper clean as this is my only con when using this cleaning brush compared to competing devices at a higher price point.
It’s no secret that men prefer simplicity in their products which is why I love the Clinique For Men 2 In 1 skin hydrator + beard conditioner. It easily applies over your facial hair, to soothe the skin underneath. Over time it strengthens skin and conditions your beard for easier grooming. The lightweight formula quickly absorbs and feels weightless throughout the day leaving your beard smooth and itch free.

This season look for Detailed Frames, winter blue hues and statement sun glasses to elevate your look and protect your eyes from harmful year-round UV rays.
The first winter trend I want to show you is my personal favorite and love this style for any type of guy this season. The detailed frame trend is all about juxtaposition between thick bold frames and thin modern hardware. Ive styled these Blue Moon frames back to a great crushed velvet blazer and black turtle neck for an updated classic modern look with timeless pieces that are fresh and detailed.
frames combine matte and textured finishes with the translucent blue frame giving it an updated feel. These frames are great for a guy who doesnt want a lot of fuss but still wants to look updated. These round style frames have been everywhere lately and I love them with the orange contrast Ive styled them with. For this look I wanted to mix warm and cool tones to accent the same details in the frame. Mixing textures and prints the key is to keep the print large and the texture of the jacket small and refined or vice versa.
Vivid colors and striking shapes are essential when shopping for new shades that winterize your winter wardrobe. Drop frame straight details have been everywhere lately and I love the gold accent bar on these Gant shades. The tortoise and gold details make for great accents to your winter wardrobe and give that effortless cool look. For this outfit I paired an easy and effortless army jacket back to a cool toned plaid for juxtaposition. These glasses can really take you season to season and look great with your work wear suiting or dressed up casual after hours lifestyle.
