LEA-THER BE LIGHT

April, 2014

FASHION: SPRING INTO LEATHER This spring, just as the runways had preached, the most supple leathers in the season’s freshest hues are everywhere. In icy blues and washes of grey, freshen your printemps wardrobe and stay warm while looking fabulous in the transition season. Made into shorts, skirts, tank tops and cropped pants, leather, a material often used during gloomier times of year, has been reinvented and interpreted by many designers and retailers.

The Duke of Burgundy

February, 2014

FASHION: SEEING RED Shakespeare once famously quipped that a rose by any other name would smell just as sweet. But what about one of this season’s most noteworthy colours?

Bold

March, 2014

FASHION: IT'S BLACK, IT'S WHITE Regardless of whether you choose to see the world in 50 shades of grey or through rose-coloured sunglasses, this spring when heading to the dressing room, be sure to take with you the bold of black and white. Strong, stark and contrasting, bold B&W graphic prints bring with them a strength and coolness that sit surprisingly well amidst the predictable soft pastel and floral palette of seasons past. Pair up these yin-yang colours for a modern, clean look that commands the room and is saturated with style.

The Holiday Trail Blazers

December, 2013

FASHION: THE HOLIDAY TRAIL BLAZERS In classic Hollywood movies of old, leading men never failed to uphold the dapper institution of the tuxedo. Glamorous parties were pictured strewn with variations of the black and white penguin suit, and so, society followed, solidifying the staple for occasional or special event dressing. New Year’s Eve countdowns and holiday shindigs are always attended in traditional men’s trimmings; that is, until today. With so many options in beautiful prints and patterns this year, take flight from the land-bound bird suit. It’s okay to stand out at a party. Be the gent that little by little is inching men’s fashion forward; embrace it, and this holiday party season, be the trail blazer.

BACK TO SCHOOL IN FABULOUS STYLE To call the task elementary; just might get you detention. the A+B+C’s of back to school shopping are an often overlooked and procrastinated practice. For those of us who cling desperately to the last days of our patio and dockside salvation, the thought of redefining our scholarly style seems sunken to the bottom of a long list of yet-to-be barbecues and sleeping till noon. But fret not, oh freshman, here at Outwords we have laid out the syllabus to semester in style that is easier to digest than the Coles Notes to some book you never read.
