5 Suits To Get You Through NYFW: Men's

If you follow me on Instagram, you’ll see that I love menswear among other things. So, of course, I was excited to hear about Fashion Week in New York is getting a week devoted to men. With all the shows on the horizon now is the best time to start getting my looks together. Along with my best friend Rose, we scoured the stores over the weekend to see what we could get on the dime, but still look chic.

We explored everything from Zara – to Bloomingdales – to Top Shop to put all of the pieces together. After grabbing as many pieces as we could afford for the day, we were pleasantly surprised with all the great things we could find on short notice… some of which we had to order for the best deal. At the end of the day we both decided to do suits which is uncommon for us but looked great! As I always have my followers backs, of course I’ll post some of my favorites in case you are scrambling to get ready like we were. All of the suits were spectacular as one would imagine, but these five really got my attention.

Without  further ado here are Perceived Style's Suit Picks to get you though NYFW:

If you haven’t had a chance to check out some summer suits being offered, take a browse around their online shops the links are listed above.

Just be sure to stay tuned, there is more to come. ;-) 


Perceived Style

My name is Kevin Kamari Foreman but you can call me Kam for short. I am a New York based up and coming designer/stylist. The idea to begin blogging about fashion came about over a glass of wine with a designer friend of mine Kenny M. at the end of 2013. I was showing him some of the looks I had put together for my birthday when he turned to me and said - "you have a good eye... maybe you should try getting into fashion yourself." That's when Perceived Style was born. I have an obsession with classic American prep, bodybuilding, grooming, beauty products, and fashion in general so it was a good fit for me. Before my blogging days I used to be very depressed, very overweight, self conscious, and constantly self-defeating myself. Fashion helped pull me out of that. It taught me to live life, love the skin I'm in, and care about what's on it. So when I was creating the blog it was easy to decide what it would be about. The main focus of Perceived Style is to inspire people to be comfortable in their own skin, to smile more, and to care more about their overall appearance using tips and photos. Job History: I used to work at BFCU in bethpage long island. Now I am the creative directior/CEO for Perceived Style and a freelance menswear designer as of June 2014. Education: I went to Farmingdale College for 2 years then moved to Hofstra for the last 2 years. I presently am taking continuing classing in blogging, fashion writing, and design. Interests: Art, Fashion Shows, Menswear, Shopping, Photography, Womens Fashion, and Food/Movies.

Streets BK Opening

We’re a week into June and I’ve already fallen back into my old habits: eating out a lot! If you follow me on Instagram you'll know I was invited to a restaurant opening a while back. I love good food so when I got invited a new place of course I jumped at the chance. The place is called Streets. Yes…like the thing you walk on. It features a wide variety of “food cart cuisine” from around the world amped up to modern times. Chef Roble’s (yes the chef from EMPIRE on Fox) menu was delightful and he was very entertaining. So to prepare for the night I snagged this look from 21MEN. Due to the lighting the outfit looks less teal than it is (should’ve bought my camera). Regardless, this was one of my favorite looks to date. It’s a good thing I got the chinos with some stretch to them, it ended up coming in handy when I was stuffing my face.

All in all it was a wonderful evening. How would you have styled the evening? Are you taking advantage of the spring trends? Let me know! Cheers all.

Black & Blue Steel

It's already the April and I'm still adjusting to 2015! Hopefully I'll stop dating everything with 2014 sometime soon. In the meantime time keeps moving forward and work keeps coming at me. I had the pleasure of being an assistant stylist with a phenomenal wardrobe specialist for a beauty shoot recently. As a selfie specialist I was very prepared for the shoot. I got to try out my blue steel, magnum, and my Naomi Campbell walk in the test shots (extra points if you got my Zoolander reference lol). I'm told I give great pretend model :-D! I'll have a sneak peak of the shoot up when the images are done cooking.

Do you guys give good model as well?
