fashion forward fella

im so jealous of men....when did they become so fashion forward?? lately, men have been able to really get creative and exude all kinds of style...and all in comfortable shoes. lucky bastards! im talking cute scarves, colorful and patterned shirts, tailored pants and jeans, fedoras, watches, earring(s). i've been admiring the y chromosome's transformation for a while. however, it really hit home when i subscribed my husband to GQ magazine. i think im loving that more than my elle subscription. 'look sharp, live smart' is their motto and they do a phenomenal job of portraying it on the pages.
some of the many handsome and well dressed gentlemen i've been keeping an eye on lately:

kanye west- i don't always agree with his choices but usually im on board. risk taker

common- well he wld look good in anything, of course, but doesn't rely on that. always well put together, stylish and masculine. dashing gentleman

President Obama- (he gets the capitals out of respect,lol) well fitted suits that don't offend the boring masses or the fashion rebels. although i'd like to help out with his sports wear, Pres. Obama usually does us proud. classically cool cat

honorable mentions: pharrell, milo ventimiglia, kobe (although i don't like him), beckham, depp

although i won't be going the annie lennox route, i did decide to steal some inspiration from the fellas:
1. beautiful ties with my cute button downs can make an outfit (try to avoid the avril look ;)

2. striped cloth belts...just got a brown/ tan one from $10 at h&m and a $5 blue/ red one from Gap.

3. snug blazers...always been a fan no matter what the season. try it!

4. scarves... enough has been said abt that already so...
