Spring is here!

Spring is here! The flower plants will bloom adding beauty to the environment. A bright sun will radiate from the sky making the days longer and warmer .

The nature and atmosphere just feels more positive! What’s not to love about Spring?
With a bright festive season comes with a cheerful fashion!

I am not telling you to go crazy and wear clothes with bright fluorescent colours, but I am merely stating to wear colours that are subtle yet makes you look vibrant.

Unlike women, many men tend to stick in their comfort zone when it comes to fashion. I suggest men not to limit themselves and go explore their horizon. But remember, the rule is to keep it simple and neat.

One thing I like but haven’t seen much are men in white slim fitted chinos. Yes it may sound frightening for us men to try on something that bright in colour, but with the right button shirt and shoes, it can make us men look like gentlemen. The pictures below can provide somewhat a guide on what to wear with white chinos.

“Courtesy is as much a mark of a gentleman as courage.”- Theodore Roosevelt

It is true that in our modern society, cell phones can be of a necessity than a want. Life revolves around telecommunications. With the uprise of technology it is often hard for this generation to understand how to be etiquette in todays world.

One thing all gentleman hold true is that a gentleman knows how to make others feel comfortable. With that in mind, when having company, a gentleman should not be on his cell phone.

One thing I love about chilly weathers is the chance to wear sweaters! Yes sweaters may seem quite common and boring to some, but with the right pants, shoes, shirt and accessories, all these factors can compliment on plain sweater turning it into a classy, neat and tidy look.

One thing that is great about sweaters is that there are many options in choosing what to wear on the inside. Sport shirts, dress shirts, polos and t-shirts can all be worn under the sweater depending on style of the sweater.

Keeping it simple

“A gentleman knows that the latest style often is not the greatest style. it may, in fact, have no style at all.” -John Bridges & Bryan Curtis

As a youth who knows all the latest fashion trend uprising in today’s world, I realised that most fashion trend tends to fade out rather quickly; sometimes staying in the market at most for a year.

However some clothing styles never really dies out.  Most of these long lasting styles have something very similar to one another. It’s their simplicity!
