To Code: Being Fashionably Predictable

 June's To Code: A Guide to Being A Better Gentleman (or Lady in this case) 








































Once you become fashionably aware, one of the biggest worries I think people have is how they are going to "re-invent" their style throughout the years. Now there is nothing wrong with re-inventing your style, and I'd say when you're young(er), go for it, you have nothing to loose. However I like the idea of making age appropriate style upgrades because there comes a time in your life when you have to stop wearing one thing and move on to something, well.... age appropriate.

My best advice when it comes to personal style is becoming fashionably predictable, which really means that people will come to expect what you'll wear on a daily basis. You could say this is boring, but really if you have established a personal style, your daily routine will probably already be unique, which is the whole idea of having style in the first place.

I've been abiding to this fashion code for a while now. Once summer hits, I'll have shorts or pants on with a Linen guayabera, sandals during the day, I'll toss on some loafers at night to dress it up, and I'll go sockless with all my shoes while the warm months persist. The rest of the year, I go solid bright colored socks in winter, 98% of the time I will have a collared shirt on, and if it's tucked in I will more than likely have on a tie. A day off for me is to go un-tucked and no tie. My personal style can get even more routine with the gray scarf I've had for over 6 years that I wear all winter, the two ways I wear my hair, and the same cologne I've been wearing since I was 14.

Now the ladies do have a few more options for accessories and hair, but at the end of the day the same rules can apply to a woman's style. If you wear heels, dresses, and skirts five days a week, on your day off you can pull out your favorite jeans you've had for 4 years, and you're already sticking to the rule of predictability.

The point is that I'm very predictable on what I'll wear each day, and that's ok! To be honest it makes things easy and my personal style very well established.

Downtown... Main St., Christainsburg

Street style blogger, street style photographer,












































So a few weeks back my wife and I had a day date and we took a walk around the empty streets of downtown Christainsburg. We decided to take photos of each other while we were out. You can give her credit for this photo of me.

Charleston, SC - Summer 2011

So I'm starting to make a seasonal pilgrimage to the holy city for street fashion fun. I'd say this has been my favorite trip yet, slowly I'm making my way off King Street to other parts of downtown. I did my normal walks during the day but I also grabed a few "After Dark" photos that really came out well. All July I'll be posting photos almost exclusively from Charleston, you'll want to visit daily.

Street Style - After Dark... S Main St., Blacksburg

southern street style for men, mens fashion in virginia












































You're probably thinking, "What's so great about this picture?" Well, I took it at 11:30 pm on a dark street (and that Lady Gaga t-shirt was pretty cool). Last night I set up a stand with a mini soft box testing out "After Dark." I got my set up and settings ironed out so I should be able to take this to some busier streets soon. I would say the biggest challenge is that I set up my light and had to wait for people to walk by instead of walking to find people. I would say the next issue would be getting my wife to agree to me staying out late to take pictures of people in the middle of the night. Haha.

Out of all my posts, feed back on my new "After Dark" project would be great. Leave your comments below.

If you haven't noticed, Yoni here is now one of my regulars on the site. I love not only how unique her style is, but how you truly never know what she'll be wearing next. She is a complete fashion beauty.

Downtown... Mario and... Donkey Kong?, Roanoke

This has nothing to do with street fashion but why wouldn't I post it? For those who live in larger towns and cities you may be used to seeing antics like this, but in this part of Virginia seeing Donkey Kong with Princess Toadstool being chased down the street by Mario is quite rare and deserves some viral love.
