This seasons looks in men's fashion focus on classic cuts with a natural color pallet.Be on the look out for these three great lines- Rag & Bone, Opening Ceremony, and Steven Alan. Every guy needs key basics that will last a long time and that you don't have to think about when getting dressed. You just KNOW they look good. So be on the look out for shirts and jackets, such as the Rag & Bone combo pictured above, and wear with anything shoes, like Steven Alan's classic design.
And, for when the weather gets a bit cooler a great hoodie always does the trick. check out this Opening Ceremony hoodie.
Without fail it comes back every few years, and with a few accessory changes, the season's hottest bottom, and in style shoes, you can easily update your look.
This season, pair it with a chain necklace, loose jeans (or go with last week's fashion find - the high waisted jean), and a flowy camisole for a casually sophisticated day look.

Kevyn Aucoin Sensual Skin Enhancer. This stuff rocks! After struggling to find a great natural looking foundation- from expensive, really expensive, department store counter stuff, to bargain goods at Target, and finally Mineral Make-up that was just too matte looking- I got some great advice at Herringbone in Berkeley. Kevin Aucoin's Skin Enhancer offers great coverage that can be layered as needed,and it looks dewy and natural not dry or caked on.

Glow boutique is just a few doors down from Maribel and is a necessary stop on any trip to Lakeshore. Though the shop does carry cute Oakland tee's, they mostly channel an L.A. vibe by carrying trends and labels that Hollywood starlets like Kate Hudson wear. Glow also carries jeans from popular so-cal labels like Freedom of Choice, Antik Denim, Born in California, and Grass Jeans. They also have a selection of dresses perfect for glaming yourself up for a night at the club. You can also find cute tops from Nick & Mo and other comfy tees along with great costume jewelry, handbags, and belts at great prices.
Glow is located at:
3261 Lakeshore Ave.,
