Post-Christmas Style Trends

Monday, December 26th, 2011

Vintage Cord Boot Cut Pants from JCrew, Why we love them: they’re ultra stylish for the winter, much better quality than plain khakis, better and more suitable alternative to jeans, relatively inexpensive, and look good with literally any shirt and cufflink.

From JCrew: “Introducing our best cords ever. The design was inspired by vintage American 5-pocket cords; the new sulphur-dye and vintage-wash process is all ours. We gave them an authentic jean look and feel with handsanding on the thighs, knees and seat, with additional grinding along the waistband, pockets and hem. Cotton. Zip fly. Traditional 5-pocket styling with reinforced back pockets. Import. Machine wash. Catalog/jcrew.com only.”

Add some Eastern Zen and elegance to these old fashioned cords with these mystical Rudrakska Seed Cufflinks. Remember, these sacred seeds are take from the type of tree Buddha sat under when he gained enlightenment.

Sorel Black Snow Boot

GQ Says: “Sorel boots have been around for ages and everyone clomps around in them in the slush. They’re typically fur-lined, brown, and extremely utilitarian. But when I saw them in all-black and lined in plaid, I thought, That’s the stealth boot of the season. I’m not advocating walking around the office in them in a suit, but I think we all need a bit of style when it’s raining. Even when boots are in style, they can look strictly weekend. But these are chic and simple.”

Style we Love: Colored Sweaters that POP. After experiencing an endless cycle of Christmas lights, we are still attuned to seeing bright colors. But unfortunately after the Tree comes down and the house lights get packed back away, we don’t see much color for the rest of the winter season. Try this: An everlasting style updated in new colors. Made from supersoft, luxurious Italian cashmere in a 12-gauge knit from a world-famous mill. V-neck. Other colors like aqua and purple available form Jcrew.com

What To Buy Your Lady For Christmas

There are certain staples that every woman wants for Christmas and yes, they fall in the general categories one might expect: jewelry, body care, clothing, make up, perfume, shoes, handbags, and specialty boutique items (i.e. knick knacks from her favorite store, thoughtful items, etc). Don’t fret gentlemen, Ms. Cufflink is here to help!

The Way of The Rustic Boot

Thursday, October 20th, 2011

You are what you wear. Or at least what you put on your feet. Not long ago, an individuals’ livelihood was directly dependent upon keeping their body safe from nature’s harsh elements. A good pair of shoes to ‘weather the storm’ was a necessity for survival and unsurprisingly, it still is. This season the  rustic, rugged, yet modernized hiking boot is back. Here are a few examples of the hottest trends for your toes this season:

1. Otadan boot from Aldo shoe stores. Actually, they have an entire line of casual boots that pair wonderfully with jeans, dress slacks, and even hiking gear. They won’t positively break the bank either, starting at around $150.

Pair this suave, rugged boot with a symbolic adornment from nature. You can take the great outdoors with you to that business meeting or unwanted weekend shopping trip with the wife. If you can’t have a fishing pole, a six pack, and a bon fire on a fall evening, you might as well take the woods with you:

2. Next up we have possibly the best boots made in America: LL. Bean ‘s Beanboot with Thinsulate. The great thing about this type of boot is not only is it completely functional and stylish, but it is also hand-made in Maine. The can take a heavy mud beating, get rained on, and scrapped by unforgiving pavement, but they still protect your feet. You can also get them insulated with sheep’s fur for a slightly higher price. The BEST part is…wait for it…if at any time, with or without a receipt, you wish to exchange your boot for another pair, you can! No extra cost, no hassle, just simple quick exchange. And no, we do not work for LL bean….

3. Last we have the classic Timberland boot with a twist. Not too street, yet not too rustic, this Timberland boot is a great spin on a classic look. The brown coloring will look great with just about any of this season’s sweater colors: grey, mustard, navy blue, and hunter green.
