The JPSKILLZ Style Tip of the Day!

You can be chill even when it’s hot outside.  A nice Button Down, a pair of Joggers, cloaked with a Blazer and you’re more than ready to beat the heat and the competition…as if there was any?  “LAID BACK!  WIT’ MY MIND ON MY MONEY AND MY MONEY ON MY MIND!”  “LIVE ABOVE IT!”

The JPSKILLZ Style Tip of the Day! : #NoBeltZONE

Who says ya’ need a belt to be a BOSS!?  LoL  As a nice alternative to the ever so popular Men’s Staple, the belt, try this…DON’T WEAR ONE!  Now this doesn’t apply to those who enjoy letting their pants sag.  No.  This is for those who like a nice, tailored pair of pants and want to take advantage of the power of the snug waist line.  Try ditching the belt and watch how it makes any look more casual while maintaining its sophistication.  Exhibit…A! 😉 “LIVE ABOVE IT!”

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!”

BOOTS: Cole Haan Lunargrand Boots $300 | PANTS: Banana Republic Fatigue Slim Fit Dress Pants $10 (SALE) | SWEATER: GAP by En Noir $40 | RAIN BLAZER: Target by Merona $30 | VEST: Target by Merona $25

JPSKILLZ Style Tip of the Day!

Not too flashy but always classy! LoL Simple today: Rockin’ my Gray Zerogrands ($278), my Slim Fit Express Khaki Joggers ($40 Sale), BR Oxford ($25 Sale), Gray Mossimo Cardigan ($25), Express Top Coat ($278), and Green Merona Vest ($30). Now you may choose not to wear the vest, but that’s a gametime decision.  I just felt like a little more edge and warmth.  Anyway, “LIVE ABOVE IT!”

JPSKILLZ Style Tip of the Day!

Happy Monday fellas! It’s not the driest Monday, but that doesn’t mean you can’t stay dry & be clean! I stumbled upon a great purchase this weekend at The GAP! You remember my En Noir Moto Jeans, which I’m wearing ($80), along with my Lunargrand Boots ($278), well I found the sweater which was a part of that collection! And it was on sale! I got a $70 sweater for $16 BUCKS!!! The sleeves are made with a shiny finish, but not shiny like leather, but a very subtle shimmer. The light has to catch it at the right angle which is a Brilliant design by the Artist. I always keep it simple on rainy days, I just feel that lighter is better with all the heavy rain. Oh and pay attention to how I didn’t clean my boots. Small details play to the day and add character to your look. A man’s look is all about Character. What story are you telling with yours? “LIVE ABOVE IT!”

BRRRRRR! It is COLD Nashville! And it’s only gettin’ colder! LoL So today is a great day to use those layering techniques I taught you. It’s also a great day to have a Lamb’s Wool Sweater! I bought this Mustard greatness for $10 during a Christmas sale at the GAP!  It feels excellent on the skin and looks great with Gray! Which is my NEW go to color! Which also just happens to be the color of my NEW Gray, Cole Haan Zerogrand Wingtips ($278)!  A deadly combination, but I am rockin’ socks today! LoL I’m also rockin’ My tweed, GAP Photographer pants ($40), my new, White, hidden buttons, slim fit, Button Up from Express ($40), and GAP Cardigan ($10 SALE). WoW! I didn’t realize how much GAP I was rockin’. LoL But the secret is to use the Cardigan like a Blazer 😉 And of course my Express Top Coat to top it all off ($278)!  Oh and I almost forgot, you haven’t seen this Skully! It’s just like my Black one from H&Miller ($5). Well! That’s it! Try to stay warm out there! “LIVE ABOVE IT!”
