Cool stuff for dudes

For all the guys tuning in, or ladies that want your men to step it up a notch, here are some hip accessory ideas for the season. Looks like pant length is getting shorter to show off your cool "kicks". Shoulder bags, scarfs, and jackets (esp. blazers) are very popular now. There are all kinds of great combos out there like blazers/sneakers or t-shirt/scarf/chukkas that we can put together. One dresses up the other or down if you flip it around. Hey, that rhymed! What's nice is that you have the option to mix it up. You don't have to be all dressy or all sloppy. And don't forget your hats and sunglasses for that extra touch of groovy.

The sneaky wedge

Here is a glimpse at some ultra trendy shoes for the season. Half sneaker half wedge and 100% funky. Could be cool if you know how to work them with the right outfit. Or maybe its all about attitude when you slide these babies on. Hmmm, they look potentially comfy but are they? One thing's for sure, there's never a shortage of new ideas.

Digital fashion

Techy used to mean geeky or nerdy. Now days its more like genius. Websites are the main draw to businesses. They need to look hip, cool and awesome! I'm not a programer but the responsiveness and functionality aspects are what's hot. When we get full screen pictures, videos or music, it's so much more captivating. Or when you hover over a button and it's somehow animated. It's the subtle details that subconsciously draw us in. A color, a noise or even a movement makes you want just one more click to see what happens next. Websites are very much fashionable and trendy just like clothing or a hairstyle. And like the latter, they should be a perfect reflection of the product it represents. We enjoy our favorite things and places because we connect to an experience. That's the key to anything. We don't buy shampoo or shoes or a car. We buy the story it represents in our mind. Next time you go to your favorite site, take a second and ask yourself what is it that keeps you connected time and time again? What story are you buying?
