Who says men can't wear jewelry?

I've always been a big fan of wearing jewelry. More so now as I mature, then the past actually. It's a quick and easy way to sharpen up any look whether casual or chic. It's a category in which, surprisingly, most men aren't comfortable trusting their own ability to pull off successfully.

A lot of jewelry-wearing-men usually begin with a watch, but it doesn't have to end there. Although it's a good start, you can incorporate tons of different variations of jewelry. Personally I like to layer a lot of rings, and a necklace or two... You'd be surprised how much it can actually bring together even the simplest outfit.

I had the privilege of recently collaborating with Lucas Goossens, designer, and man behind my new favorite jewelry brand LucasPlus Jewelry. I love this jewelry because you wear it and you feel empowered, it's a constant reminder of not only being positive, but to also spread it. LucasPlus jewelry is "conceived with positive energy in mind." Not only is the jewelry expertly designed, but they are a refreshing and subtle reminder, that a negative mind and ego can be cured.

So I spent the night traveling up to Harlem 125th Street to visit my good friend and photographer Sean P. Watters, who captured the jewelry effortlessly. (See Below)

STREET STYLE // AMSTERDAM VIBES

I just arrived back to Amsterdam from New York City, where it was record breaking temperatures. With highs of 21 degrees Celcius. Global warming? Sadly it wasn't a white Christmas. ANYWAYS, Amsterdam in the winter can be pretty grey. Everyone's usually in recovery mode from the Summer festivals, and canal boat parties, that once winter comes around, Amsterdam's too cold to function basically. BUT- That doesn't mean it's still not beautiful! The canals are filled with light shows, and the squares with ice skating rinks and winter festivals, making it perfect to bring out some of your favorite winter accessories.

In today's Street Style post I'm wearing a beanie from Topman, Coat from Nautica, oversized sweater from Weekday, Chelsea Boot from Aldo, and scarf from All Saints. I went with a neutral pallet of greens and grays making it easy to wear this outfit over and over by just switching out the sweaters and accessories. Easy for those winter mornings you don't want to get out of bed and need an easy and comfy alternative.

Hope you guys are having a great holiday vacation!

COLLAB // NIKE x TOPMAN

NIKE x TOPMAN. Before arriving back to NYC, I had the privilege  of working with good friend and long time collaborator Joshua Walter in Amsterdam. Today's shoot was based around my new Nike Roshe One iD's. These shoes are not only extremely comfortable, but super light-weight. 

I paired the shoes with my Armani slim-fit suit and a Topman slim turtleneck. Turtlenecks haven't really been my thing the past years, but I've recently started becoming more and more into them. Some brands I've found that have affordable as well as good quality turtlenecks are, TOPMAN, WEEKDAY, DAViD BECKHAM for HM, and Marc by Marc Jacobs

You can get your own NIKES at SNIPES. And check out more of my friend Joshua Walter by following him on Instagram @djjoshuawalter.

DANIEL WELLINGTON // Classic Glasgow // PARIS

Paris x Daniel Wellington. I recently spent the last week in the city of love. I guess I really got to understand why it's called that because despite the recent attacks, Paris was stronger then ever. They came together as a community, to show love, support, and strength. It was a tragic event and to see everyone continuing their daily schedules and routines showed that they weren't going to let this setback bring them down. It was truly inspiring.

I stayed in a beautiful air bnb on Rue de Teheran in the Dior building. The house was furnished with antique art, and vintage furniture, which made it perfect to pair with Daniel Wellington's Classic Glasgow watch $195 in this cool still-life photoshoot.
