FRIENDS WITH STYLE {EDDY}


Look who's back! Truthfully I love styling boys as much as I like getting dressed myself. Menswear is just as much fun to shop for if you know where to look! That's why I was so excited when my friend Nikki introduced me to Hugh & Crye, a D.C.-based brand whose dress shirts are sized by body type: athletic, lean, tall, etc. It's kind of genius for those of us buying shirts for our boyfriends, brothers, and dads — get rid of the confusing numbers (who knows their dad's neck size anyway?) and shop by build and height. Umm, why didn't I think of that?

Note to boys everywhere: you pretty much can't go wrong with complementary shades of blue. Navy, light blue, and brown boat shoes is kind of as good as it gets — and it's a look that works everywhere from a business casual office to happy hour with your college pals to date night with your lucky lady. Bonus points for navy gingham — I love gingham on boys as much as I love stripes on girls.

Do you dress your beau or your guy friends? (Or in this case, your male coworkers?) What do you love to see them in? Do tell! 

Keep up with Design Darling

Navy & white gingham- swoon! Definitely going to check out this company for the beau. Shopping by build and height sounds much easier!

I love men's fashion just as much as women's! It's so neat how so much of it has stayed the same style/look wise over the years. Much easier for boy to invest in the classics for the long-haul.

I got lucky with a boyfriend who has an amazing sense of style - he loves his Ralph Lauren and Brooks Brothers, but can't wait until he can buy himself a Zegna suit...that boy has such great sartorial dreams, haha! One thing he shies away from is bright pants though, he says he like to keep all the color on top. But I love Eddy's outfit! xo!
