Listen up Ladies and Gents. space519's very own style expert Jim Wetzel offers his very own trend based tips for embracing the new Fall Season!:
It’s that time again. The chill returns, days get shorter, layering starts to sound relevant again. And now we go back into our closets with a new eye. This season it feels like some old friends are coming back to visit.
There are definitely some themes I am really excited about. First, leather is back in full force. This time it returns not only in amazing stretch leather leggings from 10 Crosby, but also on the back of a ribbed sweater from Soyer, or the trim on a Vanessa Bruno classic cape.
We are also seeing is the importance of the constructed bag. Building Block has put me over the moon with their version this season. The black drawstring duffle for everyday is probably the most novel chic accessory I have seen in a long time. And the the bag's oversized tassel amps up the neo-preppy trend we always love at space519.
As the calendar marches forward, let us not forget to also move forward with cosmetics as well. This season there is a new excitement about bold lip color. We are seeing this especially from RMS Beauty. Rose-Marie has created a Lip Shine called Royal that is a beautiful BLUE (yes, I did say that …). It looks wonderful on all skin tones. It has just a hint of violet - which makes it wearable for day and night. The overall effect is very subtle- not in a "it's so cold outside that my lips are blue way." Try it and be convinced.
Time to change your game. Soon temps will be dropping and your skin is going to feel it. The summer has been good to you: a little sun on your face - with the seasonal humidity keeping skin hydrated. Easy. Now that the elements are turning for the worse it is time to get your moisturizing regime in place. At space519 we favor an easy daily plan for maintaining hydration - to keep skin looking young and you looking handsome.
Let’s start with a good shave. We are obsessed with Cremo Cream as a daily, no-nonsense shave partner. One half gel, one half foam, it delivers a close, non- irritating shave that prevents irritation and ingrown hairs.
Next comes the post shave cleanse. I really enjoy Blind Barber’s Wintermint Face Wash. This product has a clean mint scent and it gets to the grime without stripping the skin.
Finish off with Buckler’s Daily Face Repair. This product is exactly what the doctor ordered, anti-aging, natural and easy. This fragrance free matte moisturizer feels light and hydrating with out that greasy after-feel. Perfect day to day.
