Spring style in LA is all about lighter layers, lighter washed denim, and taking any chance you can to soak up some vitamin D! I've been trying to get into some bold trends to switch up my style lately, and while I usually stay to blacks and blues, sometimes you just have to update your style to feel current... and right now it's all about pattern and color.

This knit from ASOS is their Mohair Wool Blend Zebra-Print Sweater which is definitely right on point with spring style. I don't think I've ever worn such a bold purple but I'm loving it. The zebra pattern is subtle since the scale is on the larger side so it's not too crazy. I've been laying this knit under a black leather jacket for nights out and am stopped every time I wear it! 

Unfortunately, I just sold out this week BUT I've put together a good selection of like-trendy knits below for you to get into. There are some great high and low options for any style. Hope you guys try some out!

As spring finally starts to show it's warmer temperatures, I couldn't be more excited to start rotating out my winter-wear and get back into some new season trends... and it all starts with your denim! It's no secret that Topman is a huge source for all things denim for my daily looks so I was really excited to partner with them this season and get into their newest denim styles. You really can't beat their quality of denim, especially for the price!

Spring denim trends are all about distressed and tapered styles. It's no secret that I'm addicted to tapered denim but Topman is really stepping it up with these Bleached Ripped Rigid Tapered Jeans. The tapered style is meant to be cropped at the ankle so I love pairing them with slides or sneakers keeping it super casual. I'm layering a Topman Slim Tee and Red Oversized Sweatshirt feeling those perfect Cali vibes. 

For those Chelsea Boots kinda day and nights, I like to go for skinny denim styles. These Topman Washed Black Ripped Skinny Jeans are great for any type of style. For this style I like to keep it pretty simple with a great fitting tee. This Selected Homme Black and White Striped Tee is great for your day style but can easily be transformed into a night look by just layering on a leather jacket. It's probably my go-to uniform for most evenings. 

No matter your style or preference, Topman has your denim style covered. The styles and fits are endless so it's definitely a huge resource for my jean needs. Make sure you check out their Jean Fit Guide when you're shopping for your styles. It really helped me while shopping online for new styles to get into!

With so many fake products being made in the 'fast fashion' industry, Diesel decided to take matters into their own hands releasing a capsule Deisel "knockoff" collection that turned the industry on its' head. The brand even went as far as having a pop-up store in the heart of the NYC knock-off district on Canal Street which instantly became a hit with lines forming for blocks of people trying to get their hands on the goods! 

I've been a huge supporter of Diesel for years for so many reasons. At first, simply aesthetics is what caught me with some of the best fitting denim and leather jackets out there. These days, I've been obsessed with their marketing game keeping the brand relevant and current. This capsule launch definitely made their point loud and clear but also kept them on the map of creative street style trends! I can't see what they'll come up with next!

I've been all about trying new styles lately. When it comes to my daily OOTD [outfit of the day] I'm usually pretty low-key so finding pieces to help upgrade the casual style from day to night is always a priority. I've never been a fedora type of guy but when master hatters, Goorin Bros., sent me this 'Good Boy' Fedora I knew I had to give it a go.  I surprisingly was instantly hooked!

My Diesel leather jacket and ACNE Studios jeans is my go-to day uniform. It's just easy and has enough style on its' own to fit any errands I'm running throughout my day. By adding something as cool as a fedora, it instantly ups the style points. It doesn't have to be a fedora but adding something unique and a little more trendy to a basic outfit instantly transforms your style and takes you from day to night. Below are just a few of my favorite finds that can upgrade your basics!

This year has been one of the most epic yet… and my partnership with Rogaine has definitely been one of my favorites of 2017. Getting the conversation going around hair loss was scary at first but after getting to speak with so many of you over the past few months, it’s made the stigma around it non-existent, so thank you all for your amazing emails, comments, and DMs asking me some important questions. I hope to keep this journey going through 2018 since I’ve seen some great results and so have many of you so keep the questions and comments coming!

Now, the end of year isn’t all about serious self-reflecting and goal-setting, it’s also about spending time with family, eating lots of mom’s home cooked meals, and of course and endless amount of holiday parties. And with holiday parties, comes holiday style… more specifically, holiday hairstyles! 

What’s worked for me is finding the best product for your type of hair. All of which are safe to use with Rogaine Unscented Foam to keep on your regimen going strong! Now these are just some grooming tools I’ve learned to work for my hair so definitely try them all out and see what works for you!

The Sleek Look 
If you’re going to a super formal party then you have to match your hairstyle to your tux and the sleek look is definitely the way to go. For this, you need a high-shine, firm hold product. This calls for a solid hair gel that doesn’t flake… the non-flaking part is important so you don’t end up looking like you were caught in a snowstorm! Using a comb, apply a small amount of gel onto your damp hair and glide through your hair combing your hair in one direction. If you can get a good part in your hair, you’ll look extra sharp!

The Messy Look 
Now this one can be tricky. You don’t want to look like you just rolled out of bed. It’s more of a “my hair just naturally falls this cool” kind of look so be careful! This one is a two-step process to get the best results. First, use a lightweight styling cream and work a small amount of it into your damp hair. This helps control frizz and static to give a more purposely messy effect. Second, work a bit of pomade onto your almost dry hair to give the hold. Pomade is pliable and low-shine so it still lets your hair move and give that lived-in look you’re going for. 

The Chunky Look 
This style is right there in between the super formal sleek look and the messier, casual vibe. The chunky look is my daily go-to and is most manageable for my coarse hair. This one is a two part process but still super quick. Find a good texturizing or salt spray. This lightweight mist gives your hair some serious texture. Once you’re hair is completely dry, work a small amount of wax onto your fingertips and start to work into your hair separating and texturing pieces. The wax, spray combo will hold everything in place and separated to give a cool textured feel.  

I hope these styles work for you guys and gets you prepped for the holidays. I can’t wait to continue this conversation with Rogaine educating myself, and hopefully all of you. If I haven’t heard from you guys that are on this journey with me, definitely reach out and let me know how it’s worked for you!

I’m always on the prowl for new denim – really, who isn’t!? It’s definitely the one thing in my closet that stays in there for months [sometimes years] so when I find a good brand to invest in, I stay pretty loyal. Joe’s Jeans is definitely one of those brands that has evolved into my style arsenal since I was in college and has stuck with me.

I’m definitely into the slimmer styles lately but it’s the denim wash that is always changing for me, depending on my style mood. It’s only season appropriate that I’ve been gravitating towards darker indigo hues which is why I’ve loved breaking in The Brixton, which is a straight and narrow style, in ‘Halford’ by Joe’s Jeans. It’s not all about the wash though. The fit has to be spot on for me. Since I’m definitely on the thicker side in my legs, this style fit is perfect for me with a straight fit across the hips and slim from the thigh to the hem.

Definitely head over to Zappos.com and see the full assortment of styles and test out a pair for yourself. The best part is, with Zappos orders you have fast and easy shipping options and if the style isn’t your best fit, you can return and try out another pair! It’s as simple as that! 

I've been traveling a lot lately between warm and cold weather spots. While packing for these trips is always hard to organize, the easiest way to be prepared is light layers. Piecing together outfits with lighter pieces, like this combo here, not only has me covered but gives me the chance to combine textures and colors.

While sticking to mostly earth tones for fall is my go-to, I always like to try different textures to make an almost basic outfit a little more interesting. Cashmere is just about the best thing to invest in during the chillier months. It's one of those layers that can be transitional depending on how you layer but will always be on trend every season. Speaking of investments, a leather jacket is vital. For me, this one from Diesel [similar one here] has been an addiction for years and only gets better with wear. I put together a few of my favorite layering pieces below so feel free to scroll through and combine your own style! 

With the holiday season fast approaching – yea, I can’t believe it’s already that time of the year again either – I’m always looking for some cool gadgets that I can gift to some of my best friends and even myself. While everyone has their own style and wish-lists, I always try to find those universal tools that will make every days tasks easier and quicker! I mean, we’re all in a rush aren’t we!?

For me, shaving is one of those weekly tasks that I always have to schedule out. It’s never just a quick few minutes and instead always turns into a step by step process I have to take in order to not only stay on schedule, but to do properly. Thankfully, this week I was introduced to the Panasonic ARC5 Premium 5-Blade Electric Shaver, which is beautifully designed to give an efficient, close shave in a matter of minutes… Cutting out all that prep time that always annoys me! 

It’s built with shaving sensor technology that detects your personal hair density and adjusts the motors speed accordingly giving you a better shave without those annoying pulls that some electric shavers give. The 5-blade system is made up of super sharp Nanotech™ blades combined with a foil pattern guard that is designed to catch each hair as it passes the surface. If that’s not enough, it’s even waterproof so you can really utilize your shower time when getting ready for a busy day without losing any benefits of a clean, close shave!

If you’re like me and completely addicted to Amazon, the Panasonic Arc5 is available for purchase there which is where I do most of my daily shopping for some super quick shipping and some great deals! Definitely head over to Panasonic to check out all the cool features this tool has to offer though. It’s an investment worth getting into!
