One of the things I am super excited for is the new rush of mesh clothing for men. When mesh was first announcer I was unsure how I felt by it. I mean on one hand SL is moving forward and on another hand I knew it would talk male mesh items a little more time to grow. There is currently a survey out to help establish a Men’s Mesh Standard Sizing. There is already one in place for the woman but not for men. The survey can be found Here.

Even though it is winter, you can still dress chic and still be cozy. During the Winter layering is important. To add interest use bright colors like red and pink.
STYLE TIP: In Secondlife it is hard to find good hats with hair for men. A lot of times, we have to mod the hat to make it bigger to fit the hair, mod the hair to fit the hat, or just go with out hair in the first place. Here’s a tip for you. Buy a hair that already comes with a hat, in this case I am using MADesigns Boston Style. Once you get the hair fitted to your head, it’s time to mod. Before you do anything if the hair style allows, make a copy of it. Right click and edit the hair to bring up the build menu. Make sure you have the Edit Linked box checked. Select just the hat and size it down or add an alpha texture to the prims of the hat. This tip only works for hair that is mod. I also would not recommend doing this to hair that is no copy.
Make a show
Even though it’s winter, it is still in season to have fun with your outfit. Wear high fashion items and crazy hair to make an impression. Play with make up layers to create a new look. Remember to play around with fashion, create styles that you enjoy and remember to have fun.
Formal wear can be so dull sometimes. One way to mix it up is adding a pop of color. For this look I used a neon blue in the tie and match it with amazing stripped shoes to finish of the look. Instead of using a vest or a cummerbunds mix it up with a corset for a unique high fashion look.
Where the sand meets the sea.
This blog post really has nothing to do with the sand or the sea rather than one of my new favorite color combinations. Fall is both my lease favorite and favorite season at the same time. I like being warm so knits, scarves and jackets are welcome. One of the things I dislike about fall are the colors. Earthy tones and browns come out. There is nothing wrong with these colors they are not my favorite. I like bright fun colors. Imagine my surprise when I came across this color chart from pantone.com
For this look, I am using one of the MADesigns Complete Avatars called Yasu. At the price of 2,000 L$ the complete avatars come with the shape, eyes, hair and an eyebrow shape made by MADesigns and a Muism Skin. The cool thing about this avatar is you get the skin in five different tones. Each tone comes with a skin with and without a hair base. Body layers are also included in the set.

The Red Jacket
For this look, I am using Taine, one of MADesigns’ Complete Avatars. The complete avatars come with the skin, hair, eyes and shape. The Complete Avatars range from 1500 L$ to 2500 L$ depending on the skin. Taine cost 2000 L$. If you’re new to Secondlife or just want to make a quick change, the Complete Avatars are the best, and the cheapest way to go.
