Aaaaaaaaand we’re back
It wouldn’t be the first link round-up of the year without looking back at the year that was and looking ahead to a hopefully more positive 2017.
This year has been hard. We have lost music icons that helped define us, true “Old Hollywood” stars we genuinely admired and bona fide pioneers who shaped the fashion industry. But, as with everything, we always find a way to move forward positively.
And what better way to do that – especially today, the first work day of the year! – than with your weekly round up of links from your friends at HSS.
2016’s top fashion trends (scroll halfway down for men) saw a lot of bomber jackets and some old-school style.
Most of the trends this year weren’t actually trends, per se. Casual t-shirts, old Hollywood glamour, merch madness and so on. Aren’t all of these things in every year for the most part?
We had our own popular posts on He Spoke Style, ICYMI.
Now, let’s look forward:
Want to live a better life in 2017? Spoon more, start a bromosexual relationship and for god’s sake iron your clothes!
With that, let’s also set some style resolutions that we can actually keep.
And kick it off by browsing one of Mr. Porter’s best sales of the year.
Also, try to avoid listening to “what women want” articles when they have been written by men. Good intentions, but maybe not your best source.
“Don’t view success as anything other than happiness.” While he’s usually never serious, Ricky Gervais’s look back on what he’s learned is perfect for making some resolutions.
In other news:
It’s now 2017. All search queries lead to porn. Duh, parents.
