Over and Under A Peplum Tale

I don’t think peplum tops get enough credit. This fashion trend hit us big last spring and after seeing the S/S’ 13 collections during New York Fashion Week, it looks as though we have a peplution on our hands people and you’re either with the peplum or against it, but why against?

Monday Men Style: Hold The Reiss Pose.

Hello my gents, I got a formula you guys could try in order to generate the double-looker reaction from the women and men alike during the Fall/Winter seasons this year. Definition: A person who’s irresistible or alluring head to toe look that can have us swiftly turn our head twice towards his or her direction in less than 5 seconds, deserves the Double Looker Title.

Now the formula:

A handful of suspenders.

A couple of three-piece suits (well-tailored of else forget it)

Double-breasted coats belted.

Wingtip brogue and  toe cap oxford shoes.

Add some rich fabrics and colors.

Mix those up to create the Great Gatsby, deco era look, put in a dash of the Boardwalk Empire swagger, and there you have it fellas gentlemen, Reiss Men’s collection for fall/winter 2012 that will put you into the stare-down status without a problem.

Reiss Me Baby One More Time.

Today in New York the temperature will reach close to 100 degrees and humidity will have some of us cussing under our breathes, yet I’m sharing photos I took of Reiss’s F/W 2012 collection which I got a chance to preview.

Bad hair days due to humidity will no longer have us hiding under the straw brim hats that took some of us forever to find.   Instead the fall/winter hats will have us willing skip a hair appointment or two.

Plus the layered outfits will be welcomed back into our lives like the layered slices of cake that will have us covering our stomachs in the first place.

So ladies start looking ahead, it does get shinier at the end of the seasonal tunnel.
