3 Awesome Menswear tips we learned from the Gap x GQ Collection


If you follow me on twitter (and if you don't, go ahead and head on to twitter right now and do it), you know that I was really excited about the GQ for Gap line coming out. The Gap x GQ collection officially dropped on September 27th and after checking out the collection (i.e making a shopping list, remembering I don't have a boyfriend to shop for, then promptly emailing the list to all my guy friends) I found 3 key tips every guy needs to know to look his best this season.


 Gap x GQ Mark McNairy Tech Blazer

1. It's okay to take your blazer out the office. Okay so maybe your actual blazer you wear to work isn't as kickass as this one, but metaphorically speaking, it's cool to keep the blazer on for that party you're heading to after work, just be sure to drop the tie.

2. Colored jeans are sticking around for Autumn/Fall. A while back we told you the verdict was in and it was totally fine for guys to hop on the colored jeans bandwagon. Undoubtedly, I'm sure a few of you never got around to buying any new jeans and then forgot all about wanting to get some. The good news is they're still accepting applications for the colored jeans bandwagon on a rolling basis into Fall. So in case you missed the boat last time, here's a lifeboat another chance. Just be sure to stick to cool color tones such as the blue khaki pair in the collection.

3. Sometimes nice guys DO finish FIRST. The cardigan, aka the nice guy nametag, is actually really hot right now. So go ahead, pick up one, wear it to that coffee shop down the street from your place, and finally ask out that barista you've been checking out for weeks. You'll both be glad you did.

Comment below and let me know what you think about the new Gap x GQ Collection, do you plan to shop this collection? What are your menswear style tips for this Fall?!

  1. Fancy Francy this selections are HOT. Am so tripping the blazer. Really want to do do more of that this fall. thanks for posting.

  2. So where's the diversity in these models? *raises eyebrows* lol

  3. I don't think I can get around the whole colored jeans thing, except for neutral colors like gray or tan. I might have to cop a fitted blazer though and pull the gray cardigan out the closet on em.
