Caribbean Cruising – Haiti & Jamaica | Royal Caribbean

It’s not often that you can claim to have woken up in a different country four days in a row but that’s exactly what happened when Adam and I took to the seas and embarked on our first full length cruise, courtesy of Royal Caribbean. A quick plane ride (please note the sarcasm as this plane […]

Friends With Benefits – Justin Timberlake Style Focus

posted by on 29/08/2011

So I spent most of Saturday designing my new project and the benefit of having dual screen = the ability of watching films on one whilst working on the other. I went through 3 films yesterday – one of which was Justin Timberlake‘s latest acting effort – Friends With Benefits. It’s a good film, not a chick flick and certainly not a film you want to watch with your parents around the house. Some hilarious sex scenes haha. Anyhow, this post isn’t about the film. I wanted to focus on JT‘s styling throughout the film. Yes it may look ridiculously simple and plain to an extent but I think the small details make it work. For example in the image above, the striped tie with the two shades of blue that matches the trousers and the tie clip & belt combo is vicious. Not to mention his job in the film = GQ Art Director in NYC. DREAM. More imagery on the reverse.

Hold up. I forgot to mention MILA KUNIS. She is a damn good reason to go watch this film, the petite beauty mesmerized me throughout the film with her tantalizing beauty.

Sometimes, we’ve got to keep it simple. A dark grey crewneck and nicely knitted cashmere cardigan is a deadly combination. Grey isn’t the best colour if you sweat a lot, it’s not one for you to wear to a rave where you’ll be whining/daggering every remotely attractive female.

The polo – a classic summer item which can be styled pretty much with everything from shorts to chinos to denim. It’s also a nice piece to layer with a blazer for the autumn/winter season.

Another simple look with a clean unsaturated v-neck and dark pair of bottoms – the greyscale color palette works well here.

As always there’s nothing wrong with an all black everything outfit. Black covers up all your fat + slim.

Every guy needs a nice blue suit this season. It’s a must. I love the saturation of the blue. Tie clip!

This is my favourite look from the film – I need to find a nice baby blue shirt. I’ve already got the oxford shoes.

Suits, you can never have too much. One in each colour – no red, purples, pinks, yellows and oranges. Life isn’t a catwalk.
