Where womenswear is concerned, a black-on-black ensemble has been (and will remain in perpetuity) one of the chicest go-to options. However, this particular monochromatic look rarely (if ever) translates to menswear and leaves a beau looking contrived, macabre, and/or just plain ridiculous.
So, we posed the question: What is the beau’s answer to the belle’s black go-to? Turns out, the beaux have multiple monochromatic options where outfitting is concerned. (Also see previous Beau of the Week Justin.)

We spotted Mary in Buckhead wearing a sporty but sophisticated look. She was also carrying the coolest vintage Louis Vuitton bag.
We ran into Mitchell at the Atlanta Contmporary Arts Center, dressed dapper as usual. Between Mary and Mitchell’s different takes on a simple white button down, you can really see how important this piece is to any wardrobe.
Thanks again, Mary and Mitchell.

Tis the season for PASTELS! Well, almost anyway…
Not only do these lovely pale shades remind us of our beautiful, and may we say very chic, grandmothers, Yaya and Nannan, but pastels also have relevance today, as they appeared time and time again in so many of the Spring 2012 RTW collections.
Pastels are a welcome departure from months of bright neon and blaring prints and are actually quite flattering on all skin tones. Here we’ll show you how to make them modern by pairing these pale tones with neutrals. It’s easy and fun! You’ll discover a whole new way of looking at the blacks, grays, tans, and cremes in your wardrobe. Pastels are also really easy to pair with other pastels, making color-blocked looks an absolute breeze!
