INTRODUCING MEN’S EXPRESS ONE ELEVEN

mar-week_2_mens-oneeleven_launch
Guys, it’s time to get comfortable with the part of you that can’t say no to some good feels. It’s what our designers had in mind when they created Express One Eleven for men. This new collection of casual tees and layering options merges fabrics made for ultimate comfort with designs that are rugged, street-smart and easily wearable.

According to Chad, “The trick to pulling these pieces into a look is to make it look like your outfit took no time at all, but you know it did.”

For instance: “One of my go-to weekend looks would have to be one of the double knit tees with a nice, clean pair of lighter slim denim,” Chad suggested. “The tee has a new school athletic vibe, so I’d finish the look with a fresh white pair of sneakers and my go-to baseball hat. I’ll throw on a layer like a twill jacket or plaid shirt if it isn’t warm enough yet to wear on its own.”

“But that’s only one of the endless possibilities,” he said. “You could dress some of the One Eleven pieces up with a leather jacket or blazer if you wanted to do a night on the town, or dress them down with some of our cool new utility joggers.”
We can’t wait for you to get a feel of these pieces, or to see how you style them out on the street. Don’t be shy – share the looks you come up with on Instagram with #ExpressMen.

ASK A STYLIST: BIG & SKINNY SCARVES

From skinny to statement size, scarves are currently covering the spectrum. We’re all about working them into different looks all season and to get started, we turned to Courtney, one of our in-house stylists. She had some smart advice on how to wear the oversized blanket scarves and long, skinny styles that are so hot right now.

And we mean really big. Quad-sized scarves or blanket cover-ups – they’re all good and they’ll all work with these styling ideas.

Wear it like an infinity scarf.

It’s a super cozy option that’ll echo the chunky cowl neck sweaters we’re seeing a lot of for fall. Courtney suggests trying this look with fitted sweaters.

Do a loose wrap or drape.

As Courtney said, “A big scarf or cover-up wrapped loosely over your outfit is a great transitional layer – not as heavy as a coat but just as stylish.” And draping a big scarf over one shoulder can instantly elevate the edgy look of a moto jacket.

Belt it.

After you’ve put on a sleek dress or separates, slip an oversized scarf or cover-up around your neck and belt it at the waist. You’ll tame the bulk of a big scarf while playing up your curves in a way that’s totally eye-catching.

This ’70s throwback style can lend a little flow to a lot of different outfits, and it’s great when you’re not up for the volume of a bigger scarf.

Take it for a loop.

Do a full, fairly tight wrap around your neck and leave both ends dangling in front. According to Courtney, this is a perfect substitute for a necklace with a dressy blouse and suit separates, and it’s perfectly unexpected when paired with a T-shirt and jeans.

Tie it up.

If the ’70s trend is speaking to you in a big way, tie it into a bow with a collared blouse. You can also try a loose single knot over a dress or an easy-fitting tunic.

Wrap your waist.

This one’s from Courtney’s personal style playbook: wrap a skinny scarf twice around the waistline of a dress or skirt and knot it in front to mimic the look of the now-trending obi belt.
