New items from Tableau Vivant featured during Men’s Wear Fashion Week. Pair them with great items from other stores to create your own look.
After being in SL for many year, I find that I already own most of the male items that I care to own. In a search for new items to wear, I checked out some of the many women’s stores to see what I could find that would be unisex enough to add to my own inventory. I added a few new pieces to my current collection to create somthing new for myself. Just because items are at a women’s store, does not mean they cannot be edited to fit your shape.
STYLE TIPS: If you are worried about prims not being appropriate for male use, ask one of your girl friends about the items before you buy them. Chances are, if the items are from a popular store, they already own them and can let you know which clothing items will work and which will not.
Dressing like a Rock Star is really all about attitude! Styles favored by Rockers are often edgy, sometimes classic and quite often a mixture of both. The key is to have the right attitude to carry it all off so that you look confident rather than looking like you are trying too hard.
Layering is a great way to combine your favorite t-shirts and sweaters while showing off your own personal sense of style.
Let’s face it, there is probably a manual somewhere out there that describes the preppy look to a T. When someone mentions preppy, I automatically think pleated khakis, polo shirts, and quite possibly a sweater tied around the shoulders or waist country club style. Then again, I am often referred to as “preppy” and have never worn pleated khaki pants or a sweater tied around anything in my life.
During the 1980’s, men may have no doubt taken every word of that fore mentioned manual to heart; the preppy look was, after all, quite a phenomenon during that period. Today, men have the advantage of marrying classic traditions with modern sensibilities. Although khaki pants, sweaters, and polo shirts are still a staple in most men’s wardrobes, the result is often a new sort of modern preppy style. It’s one that remains true to preppy’s inherent roots while embracing the present day’s penchant for flattering cuts and even more flattering colors.
