Well-Dressed Men (See Jane Style)

shot from a recent Trunk Club photo shoot that I helped facilitate
As some of you may already know, I'm a men's stylist over at Trunk Club.  I'm constantly scouring the shelves of inventory in our loft to create the perfect outfit for men all across the country.  Men's fashion is now a passion of mine and as the temperatures rise, I can't help but to incorporate some of my favorite trends into outfits I pack for my clients and show to guys in person.  Some of my favorite tips that I pass along to clients below...

  • Colored pants aren't just for women.  They can liven up a classic navy blazer--especially at a summer wedding!
  • Get to know a tailor.  Men and women alike should make it a priority to find a great (and inexpensive) tailor; it can make a world of a difference when taking in blazers, shortening hems and even nipping in the waist.
  • Learn to layer.  Whether it's a t-shirt under a henley (as pictured above) on a warm afternoon or a button-down under a sweater under a blazer in the fall, layering helps to give you a distinctive style.  Plus, it keeps you warmer on chilly spring days so you can avoid your heavy overcoat!
If you're interested in using Trunk Club for man in your life (husband/dad/brother/etc), feel free to sign up here or shoot me an email at anna@trunkclub.com.  We ship (free both ways!) to the lower-48 states and for those in Chicago, you can set up an appointment with me at our loft in River North.

  6. yes, layering, always a fabulous and so simple strategy to give the illusion of deep and profound sartorial thoughts.

  8. I love me a well dressed man! Haha! My boyfriend does a pretty good job on his own, but I think he'd enjoy something like this to give him a different perspective on style. Emailing him the link to your site as I type, lol!

  10. My guys really tall, 6'7 to be exact, so finding him clothes it always a chore. He likes fashion but can't really get into it because of the difficulties he had finding clothes that fit. We have found a few stores that sell European brands but everything is super expensive. HELP!!!!

  16. That model is yummy. Hubba, hubba. I've just begun styling men and it's way harder than styling women, in my opinion! Nice job styling Adonis ;)

  22. Howdy would you mind sharing which blog platform you're working with?
    I'm going to start my own blog soon but I'm having a hard time deciding between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.

    The reason I ask is because your design and style
    seems different then most blogs and I'm looking for something unique.
    P.S Apologies for getting off-topic but I had to ask!

  23. Do you mind if I quote a couple of your articles as long as I provide credit and sources back to your website?
    My blog is in the very same niche as yours and my users would
    really benefit from some of the information you present here.
    Please let me know if this ok with you. Many thanks!

  24. Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iPad and tested to
    see if it can survive a 25 foot drop, just so she can be a
    youtube sensation. My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views.

    I know this is completely off topic but I had to share it
    with someone!
