  1. The summer Olympics are three months away but, Ralph Lauren unveiled his Olympic and Paralympic designs this week that consisted of all white with red & blue accents. They are available at Ralph Lauren for purchase.
  2. Not to be outdone, Stella McCartney released her summer Olympic designs for Great Britian's team ~ the first time a fashion designer has been given that honor {GB's look better!}
  3. Kehinde Wiley {pictured above} is a New-York based artist whose claim to fame has been streetwise portraits of African-American men typically in their own clothing but, he's doing a switch up! The artist will do his first female series with all six pieces designed by Givenchy creative director, Riccardo Tisci. It will be titled, "An Economy of Grace." [view original article]
  4. They're not feminine, or subtle but All-American and more statement than you'll make in a while ~ red pants for men (all under $100). They can work if you're young, on vacation for the Fourth of July, or keep everything else real standard. Our advice: make sure they're a trouser style and stick with a more casual approach.
  5. I found this sleeveless jacket that is navy and stone ($35) and think it's perfect with jeans, Friday casual with khakis, or layered with white (yes, white!) and a colorful light sweater.
  6. It's wedding season {almost}, so men take some styling tips from Mr. Porter on city, country and beach wedding attire.
