Look and Smell Good This Season
By Alycia Paccione
Men, pay attention. Two very big trends are going to be huge this fall and they could not be anymore different – ‘90s grunge and city sleek. All I can say is plaid is taking over the streets whether it’s done with a nice thermal thrown underneath or a graphic tee paired with Converse, this look is so versatile that anyone can rock it.
The sixties have taken over the jean department bringing back the stovepipe slack cuff around the ankle with baggy shirts paired with it. If you tend to get a little chilly during the fall transition grab a quilted slimmer version of the puffer jacket because big is not in this season at all.
Slimmer version of the jackets are making its way into stores, but I’ve been told they are just as warm so do not worry. The Staten Island mall is getting ready for its fall fashion this year. Stores like Forever 21 and Express have great selections for great looks that are making their way onto campus.
Just because you look good does not mean you have to be stinky. I stopped by Sephora to check out the men’s cologne that’s all the rage for this fall season. All I can say is, men will smell amazing in class this semester. The top colognes did not surprise me because they smelt delicious. Gucci Guilty is a seductive scent that is an all time favorite. The one for men by Dolce and Gabbana is great during the day or at night, a sensual sexy scent that is for the mature man.
Le Male by Jean Paul Gaultier is a fragrance for the modern male, a light but pleasing aroma. Fierce by Abercrombie and Fitch is a sweet woody scent that is for the young at heart but loved by all ages.
Eros by Versace which is a smooth warm fragrance not to be confused with a summer scent. A classic favorite, Acqua di Gio by Giorgio Armani, is a relaxed light scent that can be worn all year round, but the top cologne that has women all the rage is 1 Million by Paco Rabbane a sensual striking fragrance that is bold for the man that is not afraid to be noticed.
