Florals

Flowers have staying power all the way to fall this year so hit up Zara’s end of season sale for the best floral tops in town.

Mules

Take a trip to Aldo’s end of season sale where you can find a collection of mules 50% off!!

We love runway shows but this presentation was amazing. It wasn’t just the mulitude of sponsors but also the graphics provided by the artists, Sharon Lee and designers Kirk Nelson & Jeffrey Sebelia.

About A.I.R.

The brand collaborates with various artists to fuse fashion and art. This season the prints are created by Sharon Lee who is mostly known for home decor. Her lovely floral prints and animal designs are seen throughout the collection.

The brainchildren behind A.I.R. is filmaker turned designer Kirk Woodward Nelson and Season 3 project runway alum, Jeffery Sebelia.

The show opens like a standard presentation on the rooftop of 7th house. The city provided a lovely backdrop to the collection that focused on street wear styles.

The wild prints were the hallmark of this filmmaker and artist turned fashion designer with flowers and comic strip notations creating a whimsy feeling.

Sharon Lee

The artist mostly known for wallpaper and other home goods lends her brush strokes to this white dress and various t-shirts.

Watches were provided by Klasse14 provided unique watches that looked like a sundial with beautiful finishes.

The verdict…great concept to pair with artists every season but ditch the t shirts and stick to the button downs and cargo pants. The women clothes were not memorable besides the dress with the classic Sharon Lee print. Check out our Instagram channel tfgnyc for the video of the event and more images.

Happy Hump day

We love that the somewhat flashy colors of gold, copper and silver have raided spring and summer trends in the UK but how to incorporate the style in America without looking…well…festive is another story. Here are three tips on rocking the trend without looking holiday.

1. Pair with Neutral colors

In all cases, metallics have a cousin neutral, silver and gray, gold and tan, and even bronze with brown. The metallic part of your outfit is slightly muted but still the focal point.

2. Jackets are great

For the guy a little less adventurous, a full metallic jacket or a jacket with metallic features are an easy way to incorporated the trend while having the option to remove it later on.

3. No hot pants

Metallic hotpants may fly in London but not here. Stick to wide leg styles and even shorts if you can find them. You can then leave your shirt untucked.

Men’s fashion week in NY starts tomorrow so check out our first instagram video @ TFGnyc

Happy Monday,

Hello Guys!

Summer is Here and bows the time to break out and dress for hotter temps. I know you guys wear tees all year around but Summer calls for lighter colors so why not try pastel colors? Pastels are a fresh take on the old black and grey tees most guys are stuck on and they can go with those colors anyway.. I will put together three looks that show how pastel graphic tees can be worn..

Enjoy🕸

Men’s Pastel Graphic Tee Outfits

 

 

So many websites and blogs have finely started to cover plus size swim wear but I haven’t seen any that cover how to choose the perfect one to hide problem areas and accentuate your best assets so you can feel comfortable and sexy..So  we decided to pick three problem areas and the swim suits styles that hide them so you can not only feel confident but sexy and beach ready!!

Small breast but large Tummy

So you have a C cup or smaller but still have a tummy? The best swim suit for your figure is (🥁) the bandeau swim suit. This high waisted bottom with a peek a boo middle and a bandeau top leaving nice cleavage and sexy shoulders visible is perfect.

Large Breast and Tummy

Put the “girls” in a swimsuit with support And focus on the art of the cutout. Think Tankinis with larger coverage instead of a figure hiding full bathing suit.

Short legs and thick thighs

Thick thighs save lives! But when you carry most of your weight on the bottom of your body swimsuits can sometimes be tough to find to high light those curves so try skirted bottoms. It is a great way to accent your hips!

Happy Monday!

Hello my fellow curvy readers,

Its that time again for temperatures to reach sweltering and to reach for any icy glass of anything..lol It’s Summer and with it the call of beach days, parties and festivals. What better way to ring in another Summer then with new swimwear? Every year we see straight size girls get all the new colors, cuts and added frills to their swimsuits, but what about the us? We need options too right? That’s why when I came across a sexy one piece swimsuit with unique cut outs I decided I had to share this cool new cut!

I love that these cut outs are done tastefully so that it doesn’t look tawdry or tacky and in very flattering places on the body. I was very happy to see it wasn’t only done in just black swimsuits but various colors and patterns as well. This one piece is perfect with a pair of cut off shorts thrown over or with a billowy kimono shawl; the looks are undress and all will give you just the right amount of sexy..I chose four of my faves and all are under $100 because swimwear shouldn’t be so expensive you can’t have fun and experiment with different styles like other article of clothing. Let us know what you think of this one piece! I know I’ll be getting one! Enjoy!

One piece swimsuits with cut outs

Hello guys

Summer is finally upon us and as I was walking around New York City one day I noticed more and more men carrying tote bags instead of messenger bags; and I thought it was such a cool idea as us ladies have been carrying tote bags for so long.  Tote bags are a great way to help the planet by not needing to carry plastic bags; but also because they are light weight, can carry anything and can be thrown in the wash! Tote bags don’t have to be the free ones with logos thrown on the front but can be structured, zippered, come in nice fabrics and can look really chill slung over a shoulder. You can find them to suit any style. Below I have scoured the internet to find cool totes that won’t break the bank but look more expensive so you can leave the messenger bag at home..and Totes are great all year round..so enjoy!

The round straw purse is the it bag of the summer. It has been in every window and magazine cementing the fact that we need one. But what about the other accessories trends that would allow you to outshine your friends? We rounded up a few accessories trends to try out now!

FLOWER POWER

Move over floral hair circle thing (?) flowers get a more everyday wear feel with one side or halo effects created at several runway shows. Reach for a flower comb instead of an headband for more versatile style choices.

MINIMALIST EARRINGS

Named after the art trend that used lines to invoke thought, there really is nothing minimal about this trend. Choose earrings with cool sculptural shapes in any metal tone.

THE FLATFORM SANDAL

These sandals require the perfect pedicure but are totally worth it! Added height and cool feet! Yasss..

Try them in leather for a more grownup feel or platform flip flops if your heading to the beach!

Happy monday!

It is always so odd that during the hottest days of the year, we wear the longest dresses. So how do we beat the heat and still rock these summer staples? Here are a few maxi dress styles that will keep you cool all day long.

Sheer Maxis

So chic these styles allow for a seamless transition from day to night without overheating in the day. If too sheer, layer with a slip dress or just buy one that comes with a slip.

Lace it up

With Eli Sabb and Burberry sending these styles down the runway, they are worth the investment. Plus take deep tones from summer to winter with a chunky sweater and sweater leggings! Double duty!

So time to go shopping (like we need an excuse 😄)

Happy Hump Day,

Yvette 💋

Okay, it is finally hot outside so how does a guy dress in hot weather without taking his shirt off or looking grimy in a sweaty tank top? We lined up three alternative out fits that will keep you cool and attractive.

The Khaki has it

Shorts or pants does not really matter, when it comes down to dressing cool they work well. Unlike jeans, they move and breath. Also, you can dress them up with a light button down or down with a striped tee.

For the Adventurous

These looks from Versace’s summer made we swoon. Try to recreate this look with baggy pants and a graphic tee. It is not tpo over the top but can say loads about your personality. Forever21 has a great selection of graphic tees while baggy pants can be found at H&M or Urban Oufitter.

Urban Chic

If the heat really does not bother you or like me, you are always cold, try urban wear staples. A sports jersey could be an alternative to the hoodie.

IN ANY CASE…DO NOT BE THIS GUY

Happy Man Monday,

Yvette 💋
