      Hello everybody!

      Having so many types of different coats available for men in the stores it is really easy to get a little lost. Looking trough the shapes and colours I found myself grabbing a military green parka, a jacket popular mostly during fall season. Not sure how to style up a parka jacket or maybe you haven’t tried wearing one, well that’s what this article is all about, a short guide in my opinion about the parka.

#emilioghaman

      If there is a heavy parka in your wardrobe you might have the temptation to throw it on you when the bad weather hits and not really think about how you can style it, but getting a parka that matches your look is ideal for you.

#emilioghaman

      Might be that a parka jacket doesn’t look like the most versatile of pieces in your wardrobe but there are different ways you can dress it up or down to style it your way, to ad d on it your personal touch. There are so many styles available right now from which you can choose, long or cropped, long fishtail or even slim ones and many different colours.

 

#emilioghaman

The traditional one is the long parka in military green, usually with heavy filling to keep you warm. This should be easy for you to match it in a casual outfit that you just throw on. You could benefit of the layered look or just take it over a plain t-shirt like I did in matching colour. I chose a lightweight parka to enjoy one of the last warm and sunny days before the winter comes.

#emilioghaman

When we speak about trousers options to style up with a parka there we don’t have many limitations. A parka will come perfect for outfits like smart-casual, formal, business, relaxed and even urban/streetwear outfits I went for a cropped navy trouser. To make the look even more casual for sure sneakers were my pick for shoes.

#emilioghaman

If you prefer a slightly smarter look to wear it daily or a casual Friday at work, choose a long parka jacket. Layer underneath it classical smart casual pieces: white shirt, knitted cardigan and slim fit jeans. The shirt and jean combination is a timeless outfit you don’t have to worry about. The muted green helps to brighten the white of the shirt and create a clean contrast with it.

#emilioghaman

Short guide for your parka

  • Add some colour to your outfit when you’re wearing a navy or military green parka. A multi-tonal outfit will look complex yet put together.
  • Choose the colour of your parka depending on what kind of clothes you wear. If you wear it just in cold season might be a good idea to choose a darker colour. Still, if you like lighter colours, consider a lighter toned parka.
  • Green parkas can give off a warm tone, and are the classic version of this type of jacket. You can try matching it with cool tones like blue or grey or just keep some warm colours like I did with a sunny yellow t-shirt.
  • The parka is an investment being a timeless piece which can be worn years after years without giving an out of date feeling.

Good morning!

 

Leather vest is a timeless piece that should exist in your wardrobe no matter the season, your age or personal style.

 #emilioghaman

How to pick your leather vest?

Well, this is easy, count that the leather vest you choose should fit your body properly, the same way a blazer or a leather jacket does.

During the 20th Century black leather jackets became a staple item of clothing for the rebel biker. The leather vest derivates from the jacket, keeping the fit but loosing the sleeves.

 

Choose a versatile leather vest, a vest that can be worn alone over a short or even under a blazer or a jacket.

 #emilioghaman

How to mix and match the leather vest?

My personal choice for the first days of fall is a plai t-shirt with contrast short denims. Usually the leather vest requires some simple pieces to wear with them. Think plain t-shirts and jeans to get the greaser look and finish it with some plain trainers.

 #emilioghaman

The trick to wearing a leather vest is making sure that you don’t bulk it out underneath. Keep the vest fit comfortably, almost like a suit jacket, showing your body shape. Shirts and t-shirts are the best friends of your leather vest and can be used in styling as a base.

#emilioghaman

 When you style up a leather vest with studs or other applications keep in mind not to match with it more than 2 colours. Usually you’ll find in stores black leather vests, especially biker style like the one I’m wearing so I recommend you to play around the black.

#emilioghaman

My choice for jeans, to pair up with this biker vest is a short ripped white jeans. As other options I would recommend black plain or destroyed long jeans in case you would like to have a black on black outfit. Should you like a contrast in your styling? Pair then to this vest a pair of formal trousers and a plain slim ft shirt.

When it comes about footwear, for sure I went for comfy trainers in matching colours. I would wear as well for this outfit a pair of high-tops in black or white.

 #emilioghaman

 

 

Where to wear the leather vest? I would wear it in a day casual outfit with rock influences or a relaxed evening outfit where a dress code allows an urban outfit, when the vest is matched with denims. If you need your outfit to be more elegant try a lightweight leather vest underneath a blazer with formal trousers and leather shoes or even boots!

Keep on looking great!

Bună dimineața Primavara, Bună dimineața prieteni!

În ciuda zilelor ploioase și a dimineților întunecate cu aer rece, este confortabil să stii că Martie este prima lună de primăvară. Zilele puloverelor voluminoase pe care le purtăm ca să ne țină cald sunt aproape uitate.

      A venit momentul să ne reorganizăm dressingul și să ne alegem ținutele de primăvară iar una dintre culorile must have ale acestui sezon este beige, o culoare ce nu se demodează indiferent de trend.

spring beige emilioghaman
      Culorile neutre sunt mereu o alegere ușoară și sigură, sunt perfecte pentru acele zile în care garderopa îți pare neprietenoasă și nu ai nici cea mai mica idee cu ce să te îmbraci pentru birou sau o întâlnire de business. Beige este culoare de primăvară pe care o poți accesa pentru a înlocui negru, negru pe care l-ai tot purtat în lunile reci de iarnă. Beige este chic, elegant și nu va ieși niciodată din trend.

      Perioada de tranziție de la iarna la primăvara ne poate creea de multe ori dificultăți în a alege ce să purtăm, cu temperaturi ce fluctuează ne este dificil să intuim vremea de la o zi la alta. În această situație prima modificare în dressing este să renunți la jachetele groase de iarnă și să alegi ceva mai practic: jachete mai subțiri, jachete scurte și jachete de ploaie, toate aceste variante sunt excelente până când temperaturile vor crește, îți oferă protecție împotriva condițiilor meteo nefavorabile și sunt suficient de groase astfel încât să nu îți fie prea cald.

spring beige emilioghaman
      Suntem norocoși să găsim aproape orice tip de jachetă în tonuri de beige și putem asorta o jacheta beige cu ușurintă la un jeans sau un chino. Pentru pictorialul de astăzi am ales un outfit smart casual urban minimalistic având ca element de baza trenciul beige.

      Probabil te intrebi ce pantaloni sunt cea mai bună alegere pentru un trenci beige. Este foarte simplu! Dacă ești fan denim atunci alege o pereche de jeans. Iar dacă vrei ca pantalonul să fie ceva mai elegant, poți alege pantalonul unui costum din dressing-ul tau sau o pereche de chinos. Eu am ales o pereche de chinos din raw denim, un pantalon chino este adesea folosit pentru o tinuta casual sau formala iar albastrul inchis este o culoare perfecta pentru birou. Pentru zile insorite iti recomand o pereche de pantaloni albi, merg perfect cu trenciul beige!

spring beige emilioghaman
      Ce punem pe sub trenciul beige? Este alegerea ta, și sigur nu ai avea bătăi de cap. Eu am optat pentru un pulover subțire peste o cămașă, imediat după ședinta foto aveam o întâlnire planificată și nu aș fi avut timp să mă schimb. Alege o cămașă în care te simți bine și poți pune chiar și un cardigan lung peste, ține cont să nu alegi o piesă vestimentară mai lungă decât trenciul. La capitolul incălțăminte sortimentul pe care îl poți accesa este bogat, poți purta pantofi sport pentru o ținuta de stradă, pantofi eleganți pentru birou sau întâlniri și ghete sau cizme pentru o zi ploioasă.

Un weekend frumos vă doresc!

      Hello Spring! Hello friends!

 

      Despite the rainy days, cold air and gloomy dark mornings, it’s comforting to know that March is the 1st month of spring. The days when our chunky knits are meant keep us warm are nearly forgotten. It is the time now to plan our spring outfits and colors and I will start with a trend that will never be outdated: NUDE!

      Neutrals are always an easy choice and perfect for those days when your wardrobe looks unfriendly at you and you have no idea what would you like to wear that day at work or a business meeting. Beige is the tone you should wear in spring as an alternative to the black you worn in winter months. It is chick, elegant, stylish and timeless.

      The transitional period from winter to spring many times gives us difficulties I choosing what to wear, temperatures are fluctuating and it is hard to predict weather conditions from one day to the other. This case the first adjustment to your wardrobe should be to ditch the big winter overcoats and go for something more practical: lightweight in between jackets, cropped bombers and raincoats, all these are excellent top layers as the temperatures begin to rise providing protection from the elements while ensuring you don’t overheat.

We are lucky to find the nude tones on nearly every outerwear silhouette and we can mix and match easily jeans or chinos in different cuts and washes. For today’s shooting I picked a minimalist urban smart casual outfit.

      Are you are in doubt of which pants are a better match to your beige trench? It’s easy! If you are a denim lover choose some denims. If you wanna go for a more formal look you should then take the trousers from one of your suits or a pair of chinos. My pick is a slim raw denim chino. The silhouette of this trouser makes it a casual/formal pant and the navy color gives that office feeling. You can match a beige trench with white trousers as well, it is perfect for cold sunny days.

      Underneath, the layering is by your choice. For the morning meeting I have my thoughts were for a formal outfit, that’s the reason I wear a shirt and v-neck knitwear, because right after the shooting i had a meeting scheduled and there was no time to change the outfit. Go for a comfortable shirt and add a long cardigan over it, take in consideration one thing, whatever you choose, it shouldn’t be longer than the trench coat. Shoes options for this outfit are wide, try sneakers for a street style outfit, some elegant shoes for the office look and the boots for rainy days, whatever you choose it won’t be wrong.

 

Enjoy the weekend guys!

Hello friends,

 

I will continue today with another chapter from this season must haves. Let’s have a look at the overcoat.

 

emilioghaman.com

An overcoat is a type of long coat intended to be worn as the outermost garment, which usually extends below the knee. Overcoats are most commonly used in winter when warmth is more important. In many countries, coats and gowns reaching below the knee have been worn for centuries, often for formal uses, establishing either social status or as part of a professional or military uniform. In the 17th century, the overcoat became widely stylized and available to the different classes.

Overcoats in various forms have been used by militaries since at least the late 18th century, and were especially associated with winter campaigns, such as Napoleon’s Russian campaign. Overcoats continued to be used as battle dress until the mid-1940s and 1950s, when they were deemed impractical. However, in colder countries, such as the former USSR, they continue to be issued and used. When more efficient clothing and synthetic fibres became readily available, the overcoat began to be phased out even there. [source: Wikipedia]

emilioghaman.com

      Designers are re-imagining the overcoat constantly. They add sometimes elbow patches, applique details, contrast velvet collars, raglan shoulders or oversized pockets. We are used with two main styles: the double-breasted and the single-breasted coats.

      The most easy to wear is the single-breasted version of the overcoat, it is more minimal and clean and can be paired with everything from your daily suits to a jeans and Oxford shirt and even sneakers for weekend.

If you desire a military look, then you should go for a double-breasted overcoat that is belted or features a half-belt detail. Take these small touches in consideration in choosing your overcoat, they are essential.

When you cannot decide what should be the length of your overcoat, think that you can choose between a traditional full-length style or something more contemporary, a medium length that finishes above the knee.

   My choice for this workday is to have the overcoat combined with a chino pant, shirt and pullover. This is a combo that anyone can wear, it is so easy, I’m sure many of you tried it already. When we speak about the footwear, my pick defines a casual workwear look that you can wear weekdays. If you feel to make this look more urban, go for hi top sneakers in matching color.

Salut!

       Voi continua astăzi cu un nou capitol din must have-urile acestui sezon.

       Paltonul este un model de haină lungă conceput pentru a fi purtat ca ultimul articol vestimentar îmbrăcat, care de obicei este lungă până după genunchi. Paltoanele sunt folosite în general iarna când avem nevoie de haine groase pentru a ne menține temperatura corpului. În multe țări paltonul până peste genunchi a fost purtat de secole, adesea în scopuri formale, definind un statut social, o profesie sau uniforma militară. În secolul al 17-lea, paltonul este restilizat la scară largă și devine accesibil pentru diferite clase sociale. 

 

      Paltoane de diferite forme au fost folosite ca uniformă militară în secolul al 18-lea și au fost  asociate cu campanile de iarnă, precum campania Rusa a lui Napoleon. Paltoanele au rămas în continuare ca uniformă de luptă până în anii 1940-1950, moment în care nu au mai fost considerate practice. Chiar și așa în țările cu un climat mai rece (ca de exemplu URSS) au fost folosite în continuare. Când alte articole de îmbracaminte mai eficiente și alte fibre sintetice au devenit disponibile, paltonul a fost scos din uz în aceste țări. [sursa: Wikipedia]

emilioghaman.com

 

       Designerii re-inventează paltonul constant. Uneori adăuga patch-uri pe coate, diferite alte detalii, gulere de catifea în contrast, umeri raglan sau buzunare supradimensionate. Am fost obișnuiți cu două tipuri de palton, cele cu două rânduri de nasturi și cele cu un singur rând de nasturi.

 

       Cel mai ușor de purtat este paltonul cu un singur rând de nasturi, are un design minimalistic și simplu, și poate fi adăugat aproape oricarui outfit, fie că sunt costumele pe care le porți zilnic la birou sau perechea de jeans preferată, o cămașă Oxford sau sneakers pentru weekend.

emilioghaman.com

 

       Dacă îți dorești un look military alege un palton cu două rânduri de nasturi, unul care să aibe și curea în talie ar fi cel mai indicat. Dă atenție la detalii atunci când alegi un palton și ține cont de ocaziile la care vrei să îl porți.

       Dacă ești nehotărât și îți este greu să te decizi care să fie lungimea paltonului tău, gândește-te că poți alege între lungimea unui palton tradițional lung  până aproape de glezne sau o croiala contemporană până deasupra genunchilor.

emilioghaman.com

       Alegerea mea pentru această zi de lucru a fost un palton deasupra contemporan combinat cu o pereche de chinos, o cămașă și un pulover. Este un outfit lejer pe care îl poți face fără prea multa bătaie de cap, un outfit pe care îl poate purta oricine. Sunt convins că mulți dintre voi ați facut deja asta. Când vorbim despre incălțăminte, eu am ales o pereche de pantofi casual din pile ștanțată cu inspirație de piton. Dacă vreți să obtineți un look mai urban, alegeți o pereche de pantofi sport înalți de o culoare similara cu cele ale outfitului vostru. 

       Feel good, LOOK Great!

Howdy!

Autumn came and with it the color palette well rooted in multi-faceted, androgynous colors that can be worn to portray effortless sophistication across men’s and women’s fashion. Like we played with the summer trends I invite you to read about 5 Fall MUSThaves.


gray for grey 2

      We start today with Gray for Grey, because you will be cool with anything on as long as it is gray. Timeless and unobtrusive yet at the same time and powerful enough to make an impactful statement on its own, any gray shade is a naturally inspired color that reminds us of things that are real not invented.

As you might have seen, all the catwalks were dominated by different gray shades this fall and no wonder why, neutral colors are always chic and can go as daywear, workwear or evening wear as well.

My choice for this gray on gray theme includes besides gray a pair of high tops. As you well know the trend to combine high tops to nearly everything is bigger and bigger so if you haven’t tried this yet maybe you should consider it for this fall.

I do go for gray as a day color and many times I pick it as an evening color as well. It can be casual or business, sporty or elegant, depending on the way you wear it.

You can make your gray outfit very easy. If it is a daywear choose a gray pair of trousers, either if it is a jogg-pant or a denim one, grab a gray t-shirt printed or just with a nice wash and a jacket or sweater over it in similar color. Make it GRAY!

When it’s about an eveningwear I would start in the same way. Pick you grey trousers, try jeans if they are not destroyed and take a plain shirt over, a denim shirt would go as well, and fine blazer, you might have one from a suit.

Regarding shoes I would go for sneakers or slip-ons for day wear and boots or brogues for the evening outfit. When it’s about the cold evenings choose a nice scarf around your neck to keep you warm.
