The JPSKILLZ Style Tip of the Day!

Happy Monday dudes!  Sorry, I guess the Spring Sun has got me feelin’ like I’m a surfer on the California Beach!  LoL  But it is definitely warmer today so today’s fit doesn’t require much.  This is why it’s important to have not only Joggers in the traditional Sweats make up, but also in lighter fabrics like Khaki.  The same goes for my Blazer.  I bought this in the Fall, but I went with this lighter Polyester on purpose so that it would transition well into the hotter days.  And I have retired the Long John’s so that the Khaki’s can breathe.  You see this is the genius of Layering.  You can control your temperature by the amount of layers you put on.  This is also why you don’t buy “ONE OFFS!”  You buy things that can be mixed & matched in any season for any reason!  Alright fellas…”LIVE ABOVE IT!”

The JPSKILLZ Style Tip of the Day!

Happy Monday fellas’!  Today I just have a few errands.  So I’m throwing on my Zerogrands, a nice pair of Moto Denim Jeans, and a Moto inspired jacket to complete the rugged look of a man on a mission!  Time for V-Necks and Rosaries guys.  OH!  And I had to drop the top too.  No more Afro Samurai for me.  LoL  “LIVE ABOVE IT!”

STYLE TIP : L A Y E R | L E S S O N 7

Today’s lesson is pretty simple.  WET GOES WITH WET.  Most wouldn’t think to put a Vest over their Rain Blazer.  But it just makes sense if you think about it.  They’re both crafted for “Bad” weather.It’s the perfect way to stay Warm & Dry on a Rainy Winter day.  Spring officially starts tomorrow if you’re wondering.  LoL  Don’t forget that Blue & Green do go together, but it’s a slippery slope.  I’m ready for the elements…are you?  “LIVE ABOVE IT!”

The JPSKILLZ Style Tip of the Day!: “STREET SUIT III”

“MARCH MADNESS” is in full swing which means I’m going to pretend to have some inkling of an idea as to how these games are going to pan out.  LoL  But this means business!  So I’m dawning my 3rd “Street Suit” in order to properly fill out my Bracket.  Today I’m adding my Shawl Cardigan to the mix because it’s going to be a bit colder today than our past few unseasonably Miami days.  I’ll let you in on a little secret, I’m actually rocking two base layers beneath all this swag.  LoL  A Tank Top & a T-Shirt give me the extra barriers of protection I need against the chill in the air today.  Anyway, refer to the 2 previous posts for details.  “LIVE ABOVE IT!”
