Mr. Bright-Side

Filed under: Designer Tribute,Mix and Match — Candy Lemmon @ 3:42 pm

Like any good wife, I make sure my man is tidy and stylish when he walks (or flies) out the door. It’s not always easy, so I try to keep my eyes open for new and interesting menswear on every shopping trip. And once in a while, I’ll find a store like B-Side Couture.

This casual T-shirt and cropped cardigan is a sophisticated staple for spring. With simple details like rolled-up sleeves and a shorter hem on a soft heather grey sweater, B-Side Couture manages to be fashionable without feeling over-thought. I took a cue from Van’s real life style with a bright yellow scarf and a colorful buttoned heart pin from Toast Face, another great shop in the Pineapple Promenade Shopping Center. The cute and creative pins depict everything from vintage radios to SNES controllers to MCDonalds french fries, all for only $30 lindens!!! It may be my favorite new find. A sexy, windblown haircut from Armidi compliments the easy-going look well. The enviable blue suede shoes are another legendary creation by Eponymous Trenchmouth, easily my favorite of all his footwear. Of course a dapper man never forgets to match his socks, and Van is doing a little Michael Jackson with this bright white choice.

You don’t have to be a lighting designer to appreciate this sim at night, but it doesn’t hurt. Van is paying homage to his surroundings with a candy-colored argyle sweater from our shop of the moment, B-Side Couture. Armidi’s Cambridge button-down is finding its way into more and more of his outfits – a perfect white shirt is hard to resist – and a tinted bowtie is a fancy extra for any outfit. This Last Call option is of course discontiued, but any white modifiable bowtie will serve you well. It’s Armidi for the rest of this look, from the messy hair to the skinny jeans, to the checkered slip-ons (shown here in pink). Now, go forth and make your men look pretty!
