Kentucky Derby Fashion Kentucky Derby is one of the few times that gentlemen dress up and actually try and out do the ladies.  The standard look at the Derby usually consists of classic styles of Khaki or Seersucker.

Starting with the pants because they are an eye-catcher from a distance, all men should turn to vibrant colors like Lime green, Pool Blue, Fuchsia, and Persimmon.  Any one of these colors paired with the right shirt and blazer will make you stand out like no one else.

Now that you have the pants it’s time to have some fun with the shirts. A great dress shirt in a complimentary color will go a long way. Don’t be afraid to go with a gingham or striped shirt to turn it up. This is the one day of the year that anything goes.

And of course we cannot forget the proper neck-wear.  Go with a Stylish Skinny Tie or a Sharp looking bowtie to tie your outfit together.  Remember to think outside the box, have fun, and you will look and feel your best.

Easter Is Here! is a time of joy and celebration when family and friends gather together, celebrate, and bring good cheer to one and all. This time of year people tend to smile more often, greet each other more often and wear brighter clothing to reflect not only the arrival of spring, but to be more cheerful and have a positive perspective on life, in general. Easter blessings are truly what this season brings. Driving around town or at the mall you will instantly see more colorful and brighter reds, greens and yellows in peoples’ outfits. Some people like to inject even a bit of color into drab gray suits just to reflect the spirit of the season.

This definitely holds true when it comes to children’s fashion. While kids normally wear bright colors anyway, Easter presents an occasion to dress with more vibrant spring colors. Given that kids will be attending spring break parties, and Church services, fashion houses have recognized the high demand for kids Colorful Easter Ties. Whereas silk ties usually were made in a one size fits all variety in ordinary colors, kids’ version of these adult accessories are much more fun. Children’s ties come in different colors and materials, as well. Combinations of materials like silk or micro fiber make Boy's Bow Ties perfect for this spring season. For instance, this solid Easter bow tie uses a micro fiber to deliver the right design. So when you look around this Easter season you will notice fresh new colors for spring.
