Men: Destination Wedding

There’s nothing like the look and feel of linen. When attending a destination wedding, be it on the beach or poolside, you’ll look great and feel cool and comfortable in one of these linen suits.

White is the classic color. In this three-piece linen-cotton combo from Perry Ellis, you’ll look like you just stepped off Miami beach. Finish the look with sandals like these Steve Madden men’s Reston lace-ups;  casual oxfords from Josef Seibel  or loafers from Cole Haan .

For the less traditional fashion forward man, there’s  this track-striped suit, also from Perry Ellis. The pieces are great together or you can mix and match to make a bolder style statement. For example, we love the track-striped jacket with the natural linen pants, also from Perry Ellis. A pastel collared shirt – pale blue or pink work great – will add just the right amount of color to finish the look.

Shop these and other wedding looks here.

When was the last time you wore linen?

GB: Festival Ready Looks

It’s the time of year when the music festival reigns supreme as the ultimate spring and summer adventure. The way you dress at these outdoor concerts shows off your style and personality. So which way will you go? Are you an “It” Girl? A street-style expert? Or are you the biggest fan?

  • The Biggest Fan: You’ve been a fan of the band since before they were on the radio. You came to enjoy the sweet tunes and you want your look to be breezy and fashionable. A feminine maxi dress encompasses both of these requirements. Combining oversize sunglasses and stacked bangles  will have people wondering if you are with band. Amp up the chic factor with a bohemian cross-body bag that keeps your tickets, and sharpie for autographs, close at hand.

Dazzling and daring, these pumps are irresistible from their bead encrusted T-strap to their shiny spike heel. The best feature? Customers agree that this 5-star favorite is comfortable enough for a full night of dancing. Add this “it” shoe to your special night’s ensemble.
