Homme Style: Marcel Floruss of One Dapper Street

There is a charming and magnetic pull for a man who is well-tailored. Just like men, women love to do a double take, especially for a super attractive gentleman walking by. This week our attention is on Marcel Dominik Floruss, a 24-year-old German native heartthrob sharing his thoughts on fashion and relationships. The recently single and stylish gent behind One Dapper Street is an easy going guy who nods to music, meditation, and Netflix for a relaxing time. YHM: Do you have any hidden talents? MDF: Hopefully not so hidden anymore in the very near future, but I used to be a professional dancer ranging from ballet to hip-hop with a focus on the latter. I am hoping to bring more of that back and present fashion that way! YHM: What’s your social media obsession? MDF: I am a serious meme addict. I think I follow about twenty different meme accounts and regularly catch up on the latest posts. YHM: Do you have a favorite love song or romantic movie? MDF: Okay, ultra-cheesy, but I actually …

Let It Be Worn: Cherry On Top

New York Fashion Week is all about fashion—from the runway to straight-up street style. We braved the brisk air of February’s runway early this year, and bumped into the stylish Monica Krystel Rose, of Let It Be Worn. This lovely lady is the last in our fashion blogger collaboration line-up and her look is a blend of minimalism and sass. Oh, how I love fall! It’s the perfect weather to still wear my summer favorites and make them better with warmer layers & accessories. With this look, I skipped the layering and went for a long sleeve maxi dress with an asymmetric neckline, and an up-to-there thigh high slit. It’s a basic dress with sassy details. I even wore it to a wedding once! To keep the look from being too feisty, I chose to wear my classic Adidas shell tops. Not only are they comfortable, they make any outfit a little bit cooler. I think comfort is the key to confidence in any outfit. I added a fun element by wearing a bright red Panama hat, the …

Glam by Moni: Rebel Yell

It’s almost the end of September, which means it’s almost time for leather jacket season! Mônica Hill of Glam by Moni is rocking out in a vintage fall look and we can’t help ourselves. Now is the time to gear up on a few ripped denim pieces, leather jackets, and your favorite vintage band tees. The Brazilian native blogger talks how this current runway trend is making its way into casual street wear. It’s Monica from Glam by Moni here! Today, I want to share the outfit that I believe is a staple in every girl’s wardrobe this fall – the rebel yell look. I am a huge lover of leather jackets and everything related to the punk rock look. I was very excited to see that my favorite designers (from Marc Jacobs to Alexander Wang) decided to go with a dark Goth look for their fall/winter collection. Think everything from leather to ripped tights, studs, and chains—your inner rocker’s dream!   So let me talk a little bit about my outfit choice. For jeans, I picked the Frame Denim in distressed black. Black denim is a staple …

Julia Fashionista: The Perfect Transition

It’s time for another fall style inspiration from our latest blogger collaboration. Up next is Julia of Julia Fashionista. Her tip for a fun summer to fall style transition: midi-skirts paired with chic sweaters. This style brings casual and trendy together in an effortless way. Autumn, a season of great wonders. Not only is Mother Nature making itself pretty and ready for winter, but it is also the season where you can still show some skin while looking stylish in your new sweaters! I love the skirt and sweater combo as it is the best style transition before winter. It keeps you warm yet it makes you look elegant. The sweater is casual while the skirt dresses up your look. The perfect contrast! Midi-skirts can be tough to style as they are very ladylike, but by pairing it with a girlie sweater, it makes the look more playful without being overpowering. The skirt and sweater combination is good for any occasion and the styling possibilities are endless. Try a mini skirt with an over-sized sweater or …
