For my first post I thought I would keep it simple and light with denim. It’s one of my favourite materials in rl and sl, but living in a big city with all the travelling and hectic life style, it’s not always practical to step away from dark shades to light colours. Mix and matching denim can sometimes be tricky if your items are from various stores with different wash effects.
STYLE TIPS: Mix and match colours that are from similar shade variants. When mixing different denims from different store brands, match items with high contrasting colours.
Okay, so out of my last four or five posts, there is probably only one or two that I would actually wear on a regular basis in SL or RL. So, I thought I would blog one of my favorite things to wear as an everyday outfit; and also, show a new skin from Lulu Jameson and his store Vaya Con Dios (VCD).
STYLE TIP: Just because it’s SL, and we can wear anything we want, doesn’t mean you always have to. Look at your RL style and find great pieces in SL that mimic your RL wardrobe.
There is nothing wrong with keeping things simple. Using classic pieces like good quality white tank and crisp pair of jeans shows that comfortable can still be fashionable.
Recently, on a shopping trip, I noticed that many stores have joined together in one central location. Although there are several different sites, this fact makes shopping a “one stop shop” for all of your favorite stores. Not only do I not have to search for different store landmarks in my inventory, I don’t have to wait and wait and wait for each store to rez once I teleport there. I love it!
Baby let’s get out of here while the night’s still young. I know a little place down by the river if we run. We’ll follow the trail by light of the moon, but if we want to make it tonight, we’d better leave soon. ‘Cause it’s the first day of summer, and I’ve been waiting all year for this moment with you right there with me.
Add a cool vest to your favorite jeans and t-shirt to add depth and interest.
Be comfortable in your favorite jeans and t-shirt. Add accessories to make your look more interesting.
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.

Finding a suit that fits your personality in SL can be a ticky ordeal. Most suits come directly out of the box with little of few layer options that you can add to another suit. By finding designers who include many different layers, lapel styles, and color options, you can create your own unique look and stand out in a drab sea of navy, black, and gray.
