Like pastel pink this summer, yellow has been seen on fall runways for men from the stripe on the fireman jacket to a full on sweater. Here’s how to rock the hue IRL.

It is always scary wearing a bright color since the whole idea is to get noticed which few of us actually like to do. Fashion has always contradicted us on this notion. So how does one wear yellow without looking like Big Bird or an attention seeker? We have 3 suggestions (take it or leave):
1. Light yellow highlights with trim that points to the hue or an accessory like socks or hats.
(sweater Asos 29.99, Shirt Macy’s 33.75)
2. Mildly adventurous? Try a sweater or the shirt that goes under the sweater (navy blue to pop the hue or a brown hue to mute it a little).
3. Ready for full on yellow? The first two looks in the opening image are the truly bold but the second is more realistic. Still not ready for a full yellow sweater, pick a striped one instead.
Happy Humpday!! 💋
A microtrend is a trend that few designers embrace or is contained to a region. Today we are exploring how the men fire jacket became a microtrend that hit the runway.

The singular reflective stripe that helps firemen see each other in a 4 alarm blaze was seen on the runways of Calvin Klein, Junya Wannabe and Burberry.
Here is why:
- There has been a rise in fires including the one burning through California right now. There is a trend for fashion to address issues in our lifes such as how the #metoo moment increased feministic graphic tees. At least this time, it’s tasteful.
- Hero Worship: The fact that superheroes are now everywhere, it seems humanity has a love for selflessness. Firefighters are real life heros so why not pay homage to them.
Rocking this trend
1. Wear it with loose fitting pants. Baggy jeans will work but nothing skinny.
2. Try bright sneakers to make the jacket pop. If you can’t, just avoid black shoes or sneakers if wearing black pants.
3. Wear a hoodie like a top and be double warm. If you feel uneasy about wearing a hoodie alone, pair with an Henley.
Happy Monday 💋
Formerly wind breakers, windcheaters are having a moment in men’s fashion this fall but instead of reaching for a company that will only sell it one season, buy from a company that always sold it and get it for less.

When it comes to fashion trends, couture fashion houses will always create a piece for one season and then never again. However there are brands that always created the look that is now a trend and they will offer it for less so instead of buying a windcheater from Gucci, here are three sportswear companies that already make them at a fraction of the cost.
We look at New Balance (on sale at bluefly.com) which has a bright color neon and this more causal gray starting at 80 dollars.
Adidas wind jackets are regularly $60 but are half off right now on their site.
Dresslily.com $36 windcheater
Finally, we went to dresslily.com and were suprised they had a men section and for 36 dollars this one is going fast!!
Women have been wearing track suits in velour since they were invented by Juicy Couture. This season, men are getting thier chance to rock the look.
By Yvette E
The tracksuit is most likely the answer to the comfort wear millenial women have embraced. It has just started its popularity in runway fair in 2017 after evolving over the last 6 years as matching jackets with streamlined pants back in 2011.
This season look for more matching styles, baggier silhouettes and monochromatic color palettes.
Are you rocking a tracksuit this fall? #tfgts to be featured on our Instagram page!

Your fashion Goddess.
With far out trends like S+M, astronauts, rodeo and large shoulders, mens fashion has gotten just as crazy as the ladies, so here are 5 trends that you can rock without looking out of place IRL.

Baseball caps have been in style for sometime but the newest styles have wider brims and larger graphics in front. Brims can also be a different fabric from the main hat.
The Leather Coat
Channel your inner Neo with this lengthened leather jacket look. You can trust us it will look cool but not with jogger sets.
The 90’s sneakers
Oversized fugly sneakers are back from the 90’s abyss and we are in love. Pick out the bold colors that are out this fall.
All checker everything
The girls got all the plaids this season but the guys got checkers. Be daring in checker shirts or coat or more subtle in checker accessories.
The color brown is having a moment and you should be a part of it. From Caramel to tan and every brown in between this trend is the easiest to add to your everyday rotation. You probably already have it in your closet.
Happy Humpday 💋
These three trends will take you through the entire fall season.

Both women and men share this stylish print. The difference is we see it in jackets and not just bottoms. The hues are more lighter here with hints of bright colors like yellow and pastels like lavender.
We are not talking full on track suits but these three items can make you look fashionable without dating yourself (especially if you saw clueless when it came out).
1. Anorak – find one with patches for a updated look or neon hues.
2. Bucket hat – another trend that has cross genders, adding a simple one in a neutral hue is best.
3. Oversized sneakers
High top sneakers are back! Look for hues in basic neutrals with color highlights for that 90’s feel.
I am so obsessed with sorel right now and so should you. Their hiking boots are extremely stylish but more fund friendly brands include Steve Madden, and Vince Camuto.
As always if you try any of these styles #tfgmfw and you could be featured on our instagram.
Happy Monday 💋
This fall instead of reaching for jeans, try these pant trends instead.
Tailored Sweat pants
Adidas made these popular but other brands have come to love them. Look for patchwork and floral prints for a 2018 update.
Plaid Skinny pants
Bring out your inner rocker with these pants. Here they are paired with a leather jacket but it can also go with a jean jacket.
Brands like Louis Vuitton have added leggings to their menswear line and we approve. Pair with shorts and a sweater for a more paired down look.
As always if you try any of these looks #tfgmff and you could be featured on our Instagram page.
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.
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.
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.
