So in case you didn’t know this about me, I LOVE men’s fashion, maybe even a little more than women’s fashion. I’ve always been drawn to more masculine features in fashion and to interior decorating. Well-fitted suits, vibrant ties, striped oxford shirts, wing tip shoes, and Eldredge knots totally do me in. I thought I would start my first “Man Up” post with one of the greatest accessories a man can use to show his personality off when wearing a suit: cufflinks. They’re not always distinct, but when noticed it’s a nice way to catch a glimpse of a man’s charm.

Some handsomely good examples of cufflinks.
I have always been a fan of military styled apparel. Maybe it’s because my dad was in the Air Force while I was growing up and I saw a lot of the uniforms. With the brass badges, gold pins, structured fit, and just an overall sense of authority, what’s not to love?
As of right now, I am craving an Army green Military jacket. I thought I was one of the “cool kids” this fall because I was on the hunt for one, then I realized that all the “cool kids” were already locked and loaded with their fabulous Military jacket finds and rocking them out. What I love about Army green is how it can be treated like a neutral. It goes really well with black, red, chartreuse, leather, gold, glitter, whatever your heart desires, it will happily hang out with any color and material you want.
What fall trend are you currently craving?
One of my absolute favorite colors is aqua. Not only do I just feel confident and comfortable wearing it, but I am often inspired by it. This cool, calming color can be paired with just about any other color. Another great reason to love it!
