We understand the importance of having certain staples that can effortlessly pull a look together. Some of these may include a pair of sleek trousers, a neutral blazer or a simple trench. As time passes by, it becomes easy to get caught in a style rut that ends up making you look just the same- predictable.
It’s okay to mix it up. In this stroy from August Man, we see prints, silhouette variance, and balance of lightness and deep colour come into play to bring about an unexpected twist of fun. The great thing about this manner of styling is the way it can be easily imagined as wearable without the feeling of going extremely over the borders.
Also letting your accessories take center stage is a magnificent way of making a statement without shouting it too loudly.
Attention to small details with a slight alteration can also make all the difference and transform you into the new man of the moment.

When we consider neckwear, we instantly think of a suit and tie. In this editorial, model Oliver Stummvoll gives us an option beyond the ever popular necktie…the scarf.
The scarf, often overlooked unless in use for cold weather, can be used for a casual look or even make a suit look laid back. The key details are length and fabric which are important to convey how posh or relaxed you want to look. Color and print brings about a little something that’s unexpected and appreciated.
When deciding how to wear a scarf, consider how you want it to elevate your look and for what purpose. No matter which direction you choose, it’s a welcome change and a proper nod to making style all your own.
Level37- Beyond The Expected

The future is always a vision we look to that changes the perception of our current reality. We see obstacles as challenges rather than stumbling blocks and problems come as a game of not just finding the best solution of the moment but one that is lasting. The future in this sense looks so clean and untarnished because we understand that what is in front of us then and there is not always going to be so. When the challenges are overcome, that place we envisioned ourselves in feels so much sweeter when it is finally met. It brings a joy that cannot be matched by anything else when we open our eyes and realize we are exactly where we thought of being.
In H.E. by Mango’s August 2014 lookbook, we are given an opportunity to look forward. Slight updates to classic looks modeled by Florian Van Bael for the first waves of Fall are the focus. The functionality of this collection will be sure to serve us well in handling whatever life has to throw at us. Accessories and layering pieces are essential parts of the wardrobe to keep you at the top of your game. You can play hard while making it look like you’re playing it safe in a fashionable and modern manner.
Life isn’t always easy, but you can make it less troublesome by thinking smarter about what you put on your back and what you do with your mind.

Designers know that one of the main ways we attain knowledge is through sight. What we see plays a major role in how we communicate with each other, so it is no wonder that we are provided with various lenses to paint the world. It doesn’t take an expert to see that you will look good in any pair of frames you choose. There is only one thing left to decide: What do you want to see?
