After a long hard winter, spring is nearly upon us! It’s finally time to put the heavy coats away, and think about updating your wardrobe. If you’re a guy looking to update your wardrobe and grooming products this season, you’re in luck! Style expert, Wendell Brown was kind enough to join me for an interview yesterday to discuss the top fashion and grooming trends for men just in time for spring 2015!
Candace Rose: What are the biggest trends you’re seeing this season?
Wendell Brown: “We’re seeing a lot of different things – a lot of color, a lot of patterns, a lot of things that are going to help guys upgrade their style for spring.”
Candace Rose: Style truly is eclectic and goes beyond apparel. What other must haves should guys add to their spring collection?
Wendell Brown: “First I want to tell you about Birchbox Man. This is fantastic and innovative – for $20 a month you get a box of high end tailored grooming and lifestyle products. What’s also really cool is they’ve partnered with the television program “Mad Men” to create an assortment of products that help guys channel their inner Don Draper or Roger Sterling. Guys that watch the show definitely want to feel like that at some point.
With the final season (of “Mad Men”) coming up, you have a limited time to close the deal. Go to Birchbox.com/MadMen by April 11th. It is a limited time so you want to get on that right away.
Candace Rose: What advice do you have for the guy who is looking to complete his look this spring?
Wendell Brown: “Well, when you’re getting your look together for spring, a stylish guy also needs a signature scent, so we have from Lacoste ‘Eau de Lacoste L. 12. 12. Jaune (yellow) fragrance. This is fantastic because it’s a fresh and citrusy scent that triggers joy and positive energy – everybody needs that after a long harsh winter. It’s literally sunshine in a bottle. It’s inspired by Rene Lacoste’s original polo shirt from the 1920s, so it’s just a fantastic fresh to kick off your spring.”
Candace Rose: What great pieces are a must have for a guy wanting to elevate his style?
Wendell Brown: “Well, the one thing every guy needs before anything else is confidence. Nothing says a lack of confidence more than pit stains, underarm odor – it’s all disgusting. We want none of that, so from Gillette we have the new Gillette Clear Gel antiperspirant. It offers 48 hours of odor and wetness protection. It goes on clear, it dries in 10 seconds, it’s just fantastic. It keeps you smelling fresh all day long. Also, this is something you want to throw in your carry on when you’re traveling for your business trip, or you’re getting away for spring break because you always want to be putting your best self forward. You want to smell fresh, you never know if you’re on a plane or a train and who you may be seated next to, it might be your next great romance for all you know so you want to be ready and prepared to go.”
Candace Rose: Do you have any additional tips or information you’d like to share with us?
Wendell Brown: “Sure, also for spring, a great thing for guys to do is upgrade their accessories. I’ve got some fantastic neckwear here from David Fin. This is about looking good, feeling good, and doing good. It’s available exclusively online at DavidFin.com. Each luxury tie helps support efforts to find veterans jobs thanks to a partnership with hiring our heroes. In fact, the camo tipping inside actually reflects the good deed done as a wonderful reminder. They’re designed and handmade in New York City from the finest fabrics from Como, Italy. What’s also great is $85 is affordable luxury. It even comes in this beautiful box, which is a great way to do some good while you’re building up your wardrobe and you feel great about something as you’re looking great.”
Candace Rose: Where can we go for more information?
