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!

Salutari si bine v-am regasit!
Renuntam la hainele groase imbiati de primavara ce isi intra in drepturi si ne dorim sa ne bucuram de soare, sa purtam ceva mai usor si mai colorat. Desigur, ne gandim la o reimprospatare a dressing-ului dar avem nevoie de asta? Am putea sa mai purtam din articolele achizitionate primavara trecuta? Raspunsul la aceste intrebari a venit imediat: trendul cel mai bun consta in outfitul care ma face sa ma simt bine si sa arat bine.
#emilioghaman
Pentru ca sfarsitul de saptamana se apropie cu pasi repezi am ales un outfit lejer. Verdele in aceasta primavara este un trend si este prezent in reviste de moda si lifestyle, magazine si in colectii ale diferitilor designeri. Verdele este o culoare neutra din natura care este usor de purtat si de asortat cu aproape orice alta culoare. Eu am ales o pereche de pantaloni verzui cu turul lasat pentru un outfit relaxat de weekend, o jacheta uzata de jeans si o pereche de pantofi sport.
#emilioghaman
Jacheta de jeans este o alegere naturala alaturi de pantalonii chino pentru un outfit de primavara si pentru ca vremea este inca schimbatoare am adaugat pe dedesubt nu doar un tricou ci si un cardigan pentru a ma feri de frig. Va recomand sa alegeti jacheta cea mai uzata din garderopa voastra sau o jacheta bomber in orice culoare. As evita negru pentru ca negru a fost culoarea cea mai prezenta in zilele de iarna. Daca va simtit bine in negru mergeti pe aceasta varianta.
#emilioghaman
Cand vorbim despre incaltaminte as merge pe pantofi sport. Dupa o iarna lunga in care cizmele si ghetele au fost o necesitate este timpul sa aducem bucurie si confort picioarelor noastre. De aceea o pereche de pantofi sport confortabili sunt cea mai buna alegere pentru o plimbare lunga intr-o zi insorita.
Feel GOOD Look Great!

Hello friends! Hello Spring!

When spring comes we all want to loose all the heavy clothes right away. we want to enjoy the sun, put some colors on and wear lightweight garments. We might get the thought that our wardrobe needs a refresh, but is it so? Could we still wear the last spring season? I answered to this question easily understanding that the best trend i can wear is the one that makes me fell GOOD and Look Great.

#emilioghaman

‘Cause the weekend is just around the corner i brought this outfit out of my wardrobe. This green it really is a trend for spring and you will find it in so many collections and proposals of different designers, brands or fashion magazines. Green is an earthy neutral color and all shades derived from it are so easy to be paired with any other color of your choice. My pick for this color is the low crotch chinos, these trousers give a weekend relaxed feeling to the outfit, reason why i paired them with a denim vintage jacket and sneakers.

#emilioghamanIt became a natural choice to pair the chinos with a used denim jacket and because the wheather is still changing i layered blue zip knit over a t-shirt to make this outfit a cosy one. I recommend wearing the most used blue jeans jacket in your wardrobe if you go for a denim jacket or pick any lightweight bomber you prefer. It can be nearly any color. I wouldn’t go for a black jacket considering that black was present nearly every day in the winter, but even so if black makes you feel good go for it.

#emilioghaman
When we speak about the footwear i prefere sneakers.Again, after a long winter when boots were a necesity it is the time now to bring joy and comfort to our feet. That’s why a pair of confortable sneakers will be the best choice for a long walk on a sunny spring day.

Feel GOOD Look 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!

Hey!
When winter comes we are all thinking about the hot summer days, holidays at the seaside and long tropical nights with beach or pool party, but we still have to wait until summer is again here. Until then let’s find warmth with good looks for winter season.

From flowers to butterflies to tapestry, there were so many patterns across the catwalks this season –  however when we looked back, we noticed squares were everywhere, whether used in big, bold blocks of color or as patches on jeans or coats.

Geometric prints as one of the most prominent fashion trends for men can already expect a guy’s traditional autumn / winter wardrobe to get a little bit of fun. Count on the subtle splashes of color, and on the playful juxtaposition of shapes, to ensure all the elements necessary in helping revamp both the classic, and the more modern menswear silhouettes intended for the cold months.

emilioghaman.com

If your wardrobe is minimal and you would like to ad some geometric prints into your closet, choose the subtle route. Think in terms of classic how to join the art of geometric prints, wear over your favorite white shirt a geometric cardigan or knitted jacket, it is enough to make your outfit stand out.

emilioghaman.com

My pick is a fine zip knitwear in big colored squares for today’s photoshoot. To make this inspiration easy for you, I layered this knot over a white shirt and blue denims. I thought that for every guy to combine a bite shirt with blue denims is a routine already so why not change this basic outfit in an outstanding one. Wear shoes in a matching color and ad an oversized scarf, accessories will always complete your look.

Enjoy the weekend guys!

Buna dimineata,
      La sfarsitul anului 2014 Pantone a anuntat Marsala ca fiind culoarea anului 2015. Sunt sigur ca ati auzit despre Marsala dar posibil sa nu stiti care este provenienta acestei culori, asa ca vom vorbi putin pe final de an despre aceasta culoare

      Marsala este cel mai populat oras situat in regiunea Tripani, in Sicilia. Orasul este cunoscut pentru andocarea lui Garibaldi in 11 mai 1860 dar si pentru delicioasele vinuri Marsala. Acest vin, sec sau dulce, este produs in Sicilia si detine un certificat de origine din 1969. In timp ce localnicii acestui oras consuma varianta vintage a vinului Marsala, vinul produs pentru export este intotdeauna fortifiat la fel ca vinurile Port, Madeira sau Sherry. Adaosul de alcohol se facea pentru ca vinul sa reziste la transportul maritim pe o perioada indelungata, iar acum se foloseste in continuare aditia de alcohol pe pietele internationale pentru a mentine popularitatea creeata de acest vin.

      O alta culoare care a fost mereu prezenta pe podiumuri este Burgundy. Numele apartine regiunii franceze unde se produce vinul cu aceeasi denumire. Este cunoscut atat ca vin rosu cat si ca vin alb, in general facut din soiuri de Pinot Noir si Chardonay dar si alte varietati de struguri printre care si Gamay, Aligote, Pinot blanc and Sauvignon blac. Regiunea este impartita, astfel, in Côte-d’Or se cultiva cele mai pretioase si premiate soiuri de struguri pentru vinul Burgundy si Côte Chalonnaise and Mâcon.
      Burgundy a fost – istorical – culoarea purtata in Regatul Britanic Victorian, rosu sau rosu inchis fiind adesea purtat de catre gentlemen. Cel mai comun palton fiind cel cu un singur randuri de nasturi, cu o talie inalta. Aceste paltoane simbolizau masculinitatea si eleganta.
emilioghaman.com
 
      In 2015 nu silueta paltonului este vedeta ci culoarea care este atat de usor de purtat si asortat cu aproape orice. In concluzie, Burgundy & Marsala sunt ambele culori ale vinurilor folosite in industria modei in special in sezonul rece. Din moment ce Marsala este culoarea anului 2015, in acest sezon vom vorbi putin despre ea. Aleg sa o port in sezonul de iarna pentru ca este o culoare ce se incadreaza perfect cu temperaturile scazute ale sezonului si decorul naturii, frunze ruginii cazute si mai tarziua zapada.
      Cand vine vorba de posibile combinatii de culoare in care sa includem Marsala nu cred ca aveti nevoie de prea multe sfaturi. Sunt convins ca v-ati gandit sa combinati Marsala cu albastru marin si alb, este o combinatie usoara care arata bine; insa Marsala fiind o culoare versatila se poate asorta usor cu aproape orice culoare, ca de exemplu: camel, beige, alb, negru, gri, antracit, albastru, albastru marin sau albastru electric, maro, cognac, verde, inclusiv culori metalice ca auriu sau argintiu.
emilioghaman.com
      Am ales ca pentru acest pictorial sa folosesc Marsala intr-un outfit urban/casual cu inflkuente rock. Am imbracat o pereche de jeansi biker skinny si ghete “military” alaturi de o camasa alba si un pulover, articole ce le port adesea la birou. Pentru a completa outfitul am ales o jacheta din velour. Puteti purta aproape orice articol vestimentar Marsala, de exemplu o pereche de jeans Marsala cu tenesi albi inalti, un tricou gri si o jacheta de jeans albastra.
Fiti creativi si purtati Marsala toata iarna.

Good morning,
      Pantone announced last winter the color of 2015, and that is Marsala, I’m sure all of you heard about it. Might be that you don’t know where it comes from, so let me tell you a bit about it.
 
      Marsala is an Italian town located in the Province of Trapani in the westernmost part of Sicily. Marsala is the most populated town in Trapani District and the fifth in Sicily. The town is famous for the docking of Garibaldi on 11 May 1860 and for its Marsala wine. Marsala is a delicious Italian wine, dry or sweet, produced in Sicily and granted the certificate of origin in 1969. While the city’s natives sometimes drink “vintage” Marsala, the wine produced for export is universally fortified similar to Port, Madeira and Sherry. Originally, this addition of alcohol was to ensure that it would last on long ocean voyages, but now it is made that way because of its popularity in foreign markets. [source: wikipedia]
emilioghaman.com
      One of the colors that almost always takes the stage during the fall season is the burgundy color. Burgundy is one of France’s main wine producing areas. It is well known for both its red and white wines, mostly made from Pinot noir and Chardonnay grapes, respectively, although other grape varieties can be found, including Gamay, Aligote, Pinot blanc, and Sauvignon blanc. The region is divided into the Côte-d’Or, where the most expensive and prized Burgundies are found, and Beaujolais, Chablis, the Côte Chalonnaise and Mâcon.      Burgundy was – historically – worn for formal events in Victorian Britain, the gentlemen were often wearing deep or dark red. The most common outerwear was the single breasted buton long coats, with a high waistline,  these jackets epitomised elegance and masculinity.
emilioghaman.com      In 2015 the hype is not only a formal favourite item, it is the colour which is so easy to mix and match with nearly whatever. In conclusion, Burgundy & Marsala are both shades of wine color used a lot in fashion industry during fall season. Since Marsala is the color of the year, this season we will speak about it. I wear it more in the fall-winter season than the spring-summer season just because it is a darker color and it fits so well with the cold weather, rusty leaves and snow.      When we speak about color combinations you should not need to much advice. I am sure you think already that Marsala with navy and white would look good, in fact the color is so easy to mix and match that you can pair it with a lot of colors, for example: camel, beige, white, black, grey, blue, navy, Olympian or electric blue, gray, anthracite, brown, cognac, green; even with metallic colors like silver and gold.

emilioghaman.com       My choice for this photo shooting was to make with Marsala a casual/urban outfit with a rock touch. I paired black biker coated jeans and military boots with a white shirt with tie and knit that i usually wear at the office. on top a velour bomber felt like the right jacket to add.
      You can wear nearly any article in this color, for example, i find easy to combine a Marsala pair of denims with white high tops and a gray t-shirt and an easy blue jeans jacket. As a final word i’d say you should really enjoy wearing Marsala this winter.
