The Styling Trick All Guys Need to Know for Summer

All it takes is a simple styling trick to make your whole look seem more put-together. And we’ve got the one that’s in-fashion right now: Cuffed pants.

Roll your hem wide or skinny. Stack socks underneath or choose bare ankles. Wear denim or chinos. Whatever details you prefer, the final result is bound to be crisp, polished, and dapper.

To some, it comes as second nature. After all, it’s not a new trend. James Dean and Marlon Brando were doing it in the 50s. Elvis Presley cuffed his jeans into the 60s. You could spot the look on The Ramones in the 70s. Essentially, as long as denim has been around, guys have found a way to put their own spin on it.

For everyone else, this trend can be a tough one to crack. When is it appropriate to roll your hem? We’ve gathered a few men’s street style looks to provide inspiration. Continue reading

17 Songs About Mom to Play On Mother’s Day

mothers day playlist

With a wide range of musical influences from Dolly Parton to Kanye West, Michael Buble to The Shirelles, we’re taking this time to celebrate moms everywhere with a Mother’s Day playlist. These are strictly sentimental songs dedicated to the women who raised us. Whether she is offering her overlooked wisdom or sewing us a coat out of old rags like Dolly’s mom did, our mothers typically have a way of nurturing out of habit.

So play her these songs as a thank-you. Or, if you’re struggling with last-minute mother’s day gift ideas, feel free to take inspiration from our playlist. Grab a few tracks that connect with you personally, draw up some cover art, and gift her an old-fashioned mixed CD. Hey, it’s better than nothing.

*This playlist was curated with Mom in mind. Happy Mother’s Day. Continue reading

With the world’s top actors, models, pop stars, and fashion icons in attendance, who was the best dressed? Take a look at our choice favorites from this year’s red carpet for the Costume Institute’s “China: Through the Looking Glass” exhibit.

15. Candice Swanepoel in Michael Kors

Michael Kors created some brilliant looks on the red carpet last night, including this gown worn by Victoria’s Secret Angel Candice Swanepoel. The plunging lace number was teamed with a tan clutch, sparkling diamonds at her wrist, and a single white gardenia twisted into the base of her hair bun. In this case, it was her lack of risk that paid off.
