There are few pieces I keep in my closet once a season comes to a close. I'm constantly purging to make room for more and no matter how much I donate, I'm always at a lack of space in my closet(s). Every once in a while though, I find myself hooked to a piece that I just can't find the heart to get rid of. This American Eagle Outfitters suede jackets is one of those pieces!

AEO sent this guy over last year and after wearing it constantly, I stored it away for the perfect spring day to break back into it. With spring in full bloom, it was time to get back into the spring-trend! Suede is by far one of my favorite materials when it comes to outerwear or footwear and during the spring trend, is the perfect trend to follow. Since I've worn this suede piece a million times, I've been on the hunt for more of the silky smooth fabric. Below is some of my favorite finds to get you into the trend! 



Traveling in style doesn't have to be that hard. With so many options to get inspiration, I thought I'd put together a package of some of my favorite pieces from Canali pieces to get you prepared for your next dapper adventure! This week's Look of the Week is inspired by those dapper travelers we 

A suit is a no-brainer but a travel suit, like this one from Canali, is a major upgrade for the avid traveler. The Italian firm is known for its bespoke classic suits, but you will be surprised by this model’s innovative craft. Made with crease and wrinkle resistant material, you will make it to your next destination just as polished as when you boarded the plane. Navy is classic so if you're going to invest in a great suit, then go a color you're comfortable wearing all the time! Speaking of investments, a great piece of carry-on luggage or briefcase is a must if you're really going to up your style game. These matching pieces - the Canali Black Tumbled Calfskin Leather Briefcase and Spinner Suitcase - are the epitome of traveling in style.

Trend Styled would like to thank Canali for this collaboration.






Spring has officially sprung and while for most people it's a sign to put away all their winter coats and heavier layers, for me, it's all about starting that Coachella weekend shirt collection. Thankfully, my friends over at HM sent over some goodies to kick start my collection!

Festivals are all about those bold patterns, casual kicks, and some essential sunnies. For today's style, I've gone for this floral printed shirt from HM, some of my favorite denim from Topman, Tretorn Nylite suede sneakers, and some sunnies from Cali based Garrett Leight California Optical. While I'm already in full on dress for the spring-time / festival season, it's not too late for you to jump into the game. Just click through below for some of my current favorites! 









For most guys, pattern is that scary thing we can't seem to wrap our mind around and avoid it all cause. Keeping it safe with solids, neutrals, and classic staples easily described my style years ago but now, with so many cool brands doing fun pops of patterns, I've given in and started to have some more fun with my style. With spring just on the cusp of arriving, now's the time you get into the seasons biggest trend!

If you're going to go for it, then go big! Leopard print is a rocker staple that has been around since the 80's after most of the music industry rocked it on stage. It hasn't gone anywhere since but has evolved into a more wearable pattern for us less than out there guys. Coach [a HUGE staple in my daily style] has not only evolved the print but has completely changed the leather game! In collaboration with Los Angeles artist Gary Baseman, the 'Swamp Jacket' is a fully customized jacket with some major detail. Hand painted back, cool metal pins, and, of course, a punch of leopard makes this jacket a one of a kind! This will instantly upgrade your style and get you into that all so scary pattern trend we should all be on board with! Get into it instantly! 






When it comes to the weekends, it doesn’t take much to keep me in bed. Lately I’ve been keeping a good routine of sleeping in, staying off my phone, and just recharging for the busy week ahead. One of my favorite things to do is to just pour myself a cup of coffee and do travel research. No matter if it’s traveling around Los Angeles or traveling abroad, there’s nothing more relaxing than daydreaming about upcoming travels. 

I remember growing up as a kid in my small town of Grand Prairie, Texas daydreaming of being able to one-day travel and escape the constrained vibes I felt living in the burbs. I always knew that going to college was a necessary step in being successful and accomplishing the goals I set for myself, but I quickly realized it was the perfect way to be able to travel out of my small town. Luckily, I had the support of my family and community who helped me succeed in my ambitious goals. I’ve always felt the need to pay it forward, so I’m happy to finally get that chance!

Knowing all the goals I had growing up, I couldn’t be more excited to partner with Café Bustelo to help promote the HACU [Hispanic Association of Colleges and Universities] ‘El Café del Futuro’ scholarship contest which will help other young people of Hispanic descent accomplish their own dreams just like I was able to. The deadline to enter is May 26th, 2017 and requires an essay describing how your heritage and community motivates you to get a college degree and how you’re planning on giving back to your community, so you have to get to work as soon as possible! Just head HERE so you get all the details and start your application. This is a nation-wide contest so even if you’re past your college application days, make sure to spread the news to your own community and friends!









Thailand is by far one of my favorite places I've ever visited... So much so that I booked a last minute return trip to the beautiful country with my friends at the Tourism Authority of Thailand. I don't have to go too much into details here. I'm happy to announce the launch of my YouTube channel where I'll be posting all of my #WheredSaulGo travel adventures, style guides, and daily lifestyle vlogs featuring all of my favorite things!

I'm loving this in between weather in California this week where the temperatures are rising and the sun is shining a little brighter! It's always the most exciting time of year when we get a glimpse of what's to come with spring and summer. Not that Cali doesn't always feel like spring, but lately it's been colder and a lot rainier than usual so I'm definitely ready for the non-stop sunshine again!

For me, spring style is all about lighter leather jackets and a more relaxed vibe. This jacket from Diesel Black Gold is a favorite that I've owned for a couple years now, but I'm always excited to pair it down with some of my favorite warm-weather gear. I've been obsessed with the green-blue shades lately so this perfectly fitting tee from AG Jeans was a no brainer to pair with my indigo denim from Acne Studios and some essential Birkenstock sandals. Scroll through and shop my style and some of my favorite sunny weather essentials below!

I've been spending a lot of time downtown lately attempting to get out of my West Hollywood bubble that I got some comfortable with. Don't get me wrong, I love WeHo and the chill vibes it offers but it's always nice to feel like I'm back in New York City again. Even for just an afternoon to get my urban fix. 

One of the best things about downtown is all the cool murals, installations, and historic architecture that transports you into an entirely knew world. I stumbled across this installation pictured here after checking out some cool menswear shops that are around the Arts District. With some help from some pretty amazing lighting, I knew it was the perfect backdrop for today's outfit. 

This Martin Asbjorn Bomber Jacket is a recent brand discovery I made a couple weeks ago. Founded in 2012, this Copenhagen based menswear brand is one of the coolest modern brands with their own take on men's tailored-wear. This bomber jacket piece is just one half of the full look that I'll be wearing during NYFW this year so make sure to watch out for that next week on Instagram [@saulrasco]!
