Say Aloha to one of the bigger trends of Spring ’14…tropical florals. Thank God these prints are vibrant and cool, unlike the Hawaiian shirts of yore. Please tell me I’m not the only one who remembers Bobby finding a small tiki idol in Hawaii on his family trip (10 points if you can name the reference). Now Hawaiian prints are […]

Can you tell I don’t care for this trend? Not one bit. I can’t fathom spending $600, let alone $60 on a designer pair of hideous orthopedic sandals. Yet somehow good taste in footwear has taken a back seat to comfort. And ugly comfort at that. To quote Joan Rivers on last week’s Fashion Police upon seeing a picture of […]

0 by / on April 1, 2014, 10:00 am / in Fashion, Second City Style Blog, Trends

The crisp classic button-down seems to make the leap from the men’s closet to ours every few years. Or maybe it never really goes away. However, for Spring ’14 it’s what you pair the button-down with that makes it a little more alluring, chic and decidedly less preppy.
