Summer Suits: 4 Things Every Guy Needs to Know

{By Taylor Turner & Ellery Sadler}

Every guy should have a good summer suit.

Let’s face it, men’s fashion is severely lacking in one of the most fundamental aspects of good clothes – fit. Just take a stroll down Main Street while un-creepily noticing folk’s clothes and you may be surprised at how many fashion disasters are walking around. Too short. Too long. Too tight. Too big. Too baggy.

Whether you like the classic southern seersucker or prefer a slim-cut khaki, here are 4 things you need to remember for summertime suit fashion.


The Modeste Diaries: Summer Lipstick

{By Bianca Wohleking}

For summer time (really anytime) the best way to brighten the entire face is to swipe on some lipstick!

A lot of girls mention to me when they see me wearing my lipstick is that they never know what shade to use, so I decided to break this into skin tone brackets.


Why We’re Wrong About Beauty

{By Brittany Sadler}

I didn’t really want to use the word beauty in the title of this article and not only because it took me an embarrassingly-as-an-English-major long time to remember how to spell it. This article isn’t girl-specific. And I didn’t want only girls clicked the link. Beauty is a human quality and its much talked about distortion in our current society (possibly every society ever….) is an issue that affects both guys and girls.

Why are we wrong about beauty?

{By Taylor Turner}

All right guys . . .

Let’s admit this from the get-go: girls know clothes and guys do not. It’s just a fact of life.

Take it from a guy who learned this over the course of multiple years of trial and error – epic catastrophe maybe another way to describe it. Unfortunately, guys lack of taste is so bad that “decent” doesn’t even come to mind. BUT . . . its not that hard to switch your fashion up and dress a little more classy and collected this summer season.

Here are a couple simple, short tips for improving your wardrobe I have learned from very reliable fashion sources (i.e. gals).

The Modeste Diaries: 6 Summer Fashion Favorites

{By Bianca Wohleking}

I started with my favorite inspiration and that is Jenna Lyons [J. Crew]. Fast Company went inside her office and took a 360 panorama. The rawness of the photo is perfection because it didn’t look like they send in any cleaning service before the picture. It’s beautifully lived in and you know the most amazing things are worked on and curated in that very room.

So by swerving my mouse around the panorama, I was inspired by her inspiration. It was an easy way to bring my favorite labels to you.

The Modeste Diaries: Flower Power

{By Bianca Wohleking}

I’m thinking of, “The Devil Wears Prada,” scene where Stanley Tucci is pitching the April issue and mentions floral. Meryl  Streep who plays the Editor in Chief then says, “Oh flowers and spring. How original.”  There’s that.

That and the fact that flowers are really underrated.

How do you put together that perfect outfit?

It can be really hard to find the right combination of pieces, especially when browsing pages upon pages of clothes online or looking through the endless racks at a store.
