The JPSKILLZ Style Tip of the Day!

I absolutely LIKE the Transitional Seasons!  Slight layering, Sleek Jackets….I could go on and on, but we don’t have much time so I’ll get to the point.  You can take 3 simple pieces and be more than ready for anything the day throws at you.  A light cardigan for the morning chill, T-Shirt for the mid-day heat,, and a sleek jacket for…well…isn’t it obvious?  LoL 😉  “LIVE ABOVE IT!”

The JPSKILLZ Style Tip of the Day! : #NoBeltZONE

Who says ya’ need a belt to be a BOSS!?  LoL  As a nice alternative to the ever so popular Men’s Staple, the belt, try this…DON’T WEAR ONE!  Now this doesn’t apply to those who enjoy letting their pants sag.  No.  This is for those who like a nice, tailored pair of pants and want to take advantage of the power of the snug waist line.  Try ditching the belt and watch how it makes any look more casual while maintaining its sophistication.  Exhibit…A! 😉 “LIVE ABOVE IT!”

The JPSKILLZ Style Tip of the Day! : Superboy

I enjoy pulling style from random places and what better place than the random world of comics!?  Today’s inspiration…SUPERBOY!  Oh yes!  And not only Superboy, but from one of the greatest eras…the 90s!  How can any true comic fan forget that leather jacket?  I certainly didn’t.  LoL  So…who wore it better?  “LIVE ABOVE IT!”

The JPSKILLZ Style Tip of the Day!

YO!  YO!  YO!  Wassup fellas’!?  Been a minute…I had to recover from a long week of Nashville Fashion and all the whoa’s that came along with it.  But I’m back!  And what better way to come back than with a nice NEW garment!  Heroes need 2 things: 1. A reason and 2. A SLEEK jacket!  Well, my new leather…well…Pleather Express Biker Jacket definitely takes care of #2.  Yeah, yeah, yeah I know what you’re thinking, “What if it rains?”  Hence the PLEATHER!  Despite popular belief, Pleather is probably a far better option for the average consumer and some could argue PERIOD!  You don’t have to worry about getting it wet, no animals are harmed in the process, it’s actually more durable than leather, and last, but certainly not least, it COSTS A WHOLE LOT LESS!  And remember, you don’t have to spend a million dollars to look like it.  Every man needs a nice Moto Jacket in his wardrobe, you’re looking at mine.  It instantly toughens up any look.  It’s one of the most Manly staples there is!  Heck, I almost bought a Harley too!  LoL  When you do go shopping, keep in mind that you want the jacket to fit snug so go a size smaller than what you would usually wear and there are many designs to choose from so you’ll just have browse until one speaks to you.  You’ll know it when you see it 😉  I paired it with my Moto Jeans and a nice, lightweight Spring sweater.  MAN UP GUYS!  If it’s good enough for The Fonz’ then it’s good enough for me & you!  “AAAAAAYE!”  “LIVE ABOVE IT!”

N A S H V I L L E | F A S H I O N | W E E K : Day 5

First of all, my apologies, for posting this so late, but that Food Poisoning ain’t no joke!  LoL  I’m just getting back to being me.  Anyway,  Saturday consisted of Industry Panels, the gala (which I did not attend), and the closing night party!  Spring Nashville weather is Bipolar, hence the day & night looks.  Had to go out with a bang!  Once again, keeping the fit simple and allowing the “S” on my chest to do all the talking!  I actually successfully road my bike to every event.  Nothing beats city livin’ I tell ya’…and nothing beats NASHVILLE FASHION!  Until next year mi amigos!  Esta bien!  “LIVE ABOVE IT!”

The JPSKILLZ Style Tip of the Day!

Errands to run, shopping to do, meetings to meet…just a day in the life of a young business professional.  LoL  I’m embellishing a bit, but you get the idea.  LoL  Anyway, It’s hot out, but the humidity has yet to come back from vacay so a light jacket is still needed, which is why I love Fall/Spring, the transitional periods, you get a little bit of everything.  Keep the jacket LITE fellas.  Too heavy and you’ll be sweatin’ bullets!  And that’s not COOL!  See what I did there?  “LIVE ABOVE IT!
