5 looks x forever 21 men.

late last year, i teamed up with my buddies at forever 21 for another quick collab—this time, to show off some new pieces from their #fw16 assortment. i put together five looks, grabbed my camera, and headed to dumbo to capture the shots below. the weather wasn't on my side (at all), so i kept everything super simple, but i still wanted to share a few of the pics with you guys. you can also find a few selects over on the @forever21men instagram account—make sure you click that follow button while you're there. enjoy. -j

look i.

look 6: spanish shadows.

I thought it'd be a good idea to share a bit of my travel style from my recent trip to europe, so this look's straight from the streets of barcelona. this gold-striped sweater was one of the first things i threw in my suitcase before i left. something about it just screamed spain to me. -j

wearing: asos man sweater, forever xxi joggers, gloss the label frames, and creative recreation sneakers.

breaking down the look

the clashing stripes work together here to create a cool tension that draws major attention to the total look. and while the head-to-toe color palette isn't very loud (which is a good thing in my book), the gold detailing adds some extra wow (and a little bit of luxe) to the mix.
