One of the biggest trends, and currently my favorite, this Fall season is checks. Tartan, Prince of Whales plaid and windowpane are just a few of that we saw during the Fall/Winter ’16 shows earlier this year, and now they’re making it to retail stores like Bergdorf Goodman. We’ve seen them on your suits, and now you can find the pattern on your work shirts, sweaters and knits, and accessories like your weekend bag or socks. Checks can be hard to pull off because it’s quite apparent and in your face, and you don’t have to be Scottish to pull it off. I would suggest pairing it with a muted outfit that way the focus is on the checks and nothing else. In my case, I paired my patterned sweater by Balmain with a pair of ripped black jeans and white kicks by Buschemi. I’ve collected a few of my favorite plaid items that are currently available at Bergdorf Goodman right now.

Also, BG is currently having their seasonal gift card promotion event, and you can earn a gift card up to $10,000 with your purchases.

Get shopping!

If you can’t believe it’s Fall, well, maybe the color-changing leaves will remind you. It felt like only yesterday it was NYFW: Men’s where I attended the Perry Ellis presentation with my buds Anthony and Marcel. It’s time to store your tanks and shorts and pull out your weather appropriate knits and leather for the new season. Today, I’m partnering with Perry Ellis to showcase how I #VeryPerry their fall collection during their instagram fashion show (which, I’m opening since I’m the Gigi—Kidding.) You might be wondering what exactly that entails. Well, Perry Ellis tapped 100 bloggers to feature a piece from their new collection on their instagram page (follow the hashtag #100PiecesofPerry to see the rest of the fellas). I chose a leather jacket because its a fall essential, and mainly because I’m going to live in one for the entire season, or at least until it start snowing in New York City.

Believe it or not, the fall season is right around the corner. This season I’m gearing up for my adventures with Timberland’s new Fall/Winter 16 staples featuring the Killington 6″ boot, which is a modern update to the iconic Timberland shoe.

I partnered with Timberland to layer up and style these bad boys three ways to show you how I stay “cool” for the winter. Be sure to check out the full post  on!

This lightweight sneaker boot is perfectly on trend for fall weather and is a great option for day or night, whether spending the day at the office or running around town. This boot pairs well with everything, making it super easy to style, and this version has a lighter and more comfortable sole with OrthoLite and SensorFlex technology. The boot is available in four color-ways: Wheat Nubuck, Black Nubuck, Brown full-grain and Navy full-grain.  Its functionality makes it ideal for tackling anything that your day brings with comfort and style.
