I have always been a fan of piping. It's one of those dress maker details that can bring a boring blouse or jacket to life. Usually I only see it on jackets. I even own an awesome J.Crew wool jacket with black piping, and it's my favorite blazer I own. I look like Hermione Granger in it, which is secretly a compliment to me because I LOVE Harry Potter. haha!

Through the lens of Pinterest, I'm starting to see this detail on summer blouses and dresses! With the INSANE stripe, chevron and geometric craze, this is a more subtle way to create linear and horizontal lines and stay on trend.

Menswear - What Sets You Apart?

So, you have bought your timeless navy suit, found those magic jeans that make you actually have a butt and snagged your favorite wrinkle-free white and blue button-down shirts....Congratulations! You now look like every other guy on the street, but hopefully with good quality clothes. So, now the question is, "What sets you apart?"

Well, you could always grow a sweet handlebar mustache...But seriously, if you're a working professional that is confined to a dress code of slacks, dress shirts and suits you're kind of limited. I mean, you can only keep your awesome Ray Bans on for so long until people start asking you if you're a Bono wannabe.

Think details! From your jacket lining to your belt, it's the details that help make you different from the guy in the cube next to you.
