Mad About Plaid Inspiration

4

Lumberjack style is so in right now, to the point that the phrase lumbersexual has been coined as a way of describing a man who dresses with an outdoorsy and rugged aesthetic. We’re wondering if the obsession with this new-era lumberjack has less to do with the actual man, and more to do with his pattern of choice: plaid.

Denim Days Inspiration

Lately we’re really feeling jeans that are jazzed up. With the holidays right around the corner, adding a little sparkle or flair to your pair makes them all the more festive. Last year we were all about the embellished sweater, but this time around we think its time that the jeans got a chance to shine! We love the look paired with a basic tee or sweater that really lets the look of the embellished denim shine through.
