1st Annual GQ Party: Recapped

April 15, 2012

Hey, loves! So if you didn’t have a chance to make it out to Dynasty Events’ 1st annual GQ party, you missed out! It was a blast! I’ve attached some pictures of the night, along with a few key things we found that worked best for club attire. Some things we saw that we really like:

  • Color blocking, Neutral colors and pops of color
  • LBD’s  with statement heels
  • Suspenders and Fedoras
  • Blazers and chain drop earrings
  • Knowing how to dress up jeans
  • Ties, bowties and more ties!

some of our fashionable friends really pulled out all the stops! Two of which were the winners of gift cards to H&M sponsered by Dynasty Events and the Society Chic team! It was an unforgettable night and we hope you see you out there next year! Be sure to head over to our Facebook to see more pictures from the night! - The SC Team

TOTW: Mind Your G’s and Q’s

March 29, 2012

Hey, Society! Bigs news! For a recent collab with DynastyEvents.com, a successful promotion company in Tampa Bay, we’re sponsoring gift cards for the best dressed girl and guy at the Dynasty Events’ annual GQ party, being hosted at The Hyde Park Cafe! I’ve attached the official flyer below and I hope you’ll join myself & the rest of the Society Chic team, along with the Dynasty Events family for a fashionable night to remember! Come dressed in your best because yours truly will be a judge for the winners! You can get on the FREE guestlist by heading to DynastyEvents.com and putting yourself on Melissa San Vicente’s guestlist.

Inspired by the GQ party, and with GQ in general, we decided to compile a few looks for the night out. Along with our looks, we’ve written a few commandments that men MUST live by when dressing for the nightlife. To avoid a Debbie Downer and to reap the benefits for guaranteeing yourself in the club (as opposed to being sent home for dress code), we advise you to stick with our guidelines and they’ll never steer you wrong!

Ten Commandments of Nightlife Attire:

  1. Dress-up: You can never be overdressed, and if you feel out of place, at least you’re the best dressed.
  2. Denim: keep your denim choices limited to a dark wash and fitted/straight leg style. Colored pants are fine, depending on your outfit, so choose wisely. 
  3. Minimize: having bulky pockets are a no-no. Keep only the essentials. Credit card, ID, spare cash in a small wallet.
  4. Soles: Don’t wear sneakers to a club. There’s a difference between fashion shoes and a beat-up pair of Air Force 1′s that you refuse to throw away. Also… wear flip-flops to a club and we’ll disown you. 
  5. Smell: Don’t wear too much cologne. No one wants to be intoxicated by your fumes.
  6. Ties: Do experiment with ties. They aren’t only for holidays. Ties can be used as your most bold accessory. Try out a color you’ve never tried before (lavender, magenta, mustard) or a pattern that you didn’t think would be “you” (paisley, geometric prints, plaid).
  7. Quality: Invest in a pair of quality shoes. Find a pair that suits you best, and have those as your “go to” shoe when you have no idea what to wear. 
  8. Keep it at the Shore: Bedazzled shirts and neon dragons (covering your tees) are out. Keep your shirts simple and ALWAYS ironed/steamed. Your look will always look more put-together with a crisp shirt.
  9. Bling: Don’t wear gaudy jewelry ie: big chains, overly chunky watches, golds in your mouth (unless you’re Flava Flav). Fist pumping just can’t be done if there’s a possibility of you injuring someone.
  10. Stay True: Have fun with your style. Look to the pages of GQ and find looks that you’d like to try out. Have a style that defines you and that makes you comfortable. Confidence is your best accessory, so if you’re not “feeling” your outfit, odds are it’ll show in your confidence. 
We hope you’ll keep this and use it as a guide on your next big event. And if you follow our rules and STILL get kicked out of a club for incorrectly dressing.. call us! We gladly accept the challenge. We hope to see you out there and we’ll be keeping a close eye on our faves! Good Luck!
Now, for some looks that’ll assure you to the front of the line.

TOTW: “Fake” ID

March 1, 2012

Hey chic-sters the weekend is almost here, and what better way to ensure that your having a good time then a”Fake” ID. But we’re not talking an illegitimate piece of forged government documents, no sir. Im talking about a few doppelgangers of some of your fondest Nike classics courtesy of our friends at NIKEID.

Now back in December I showed the wonders of NIKEID’s awesomely creative digital workshop. Now we are going to put that knowledge to good use creating some new designs inspired by the classic AIR Jordan 11 “Spacejams”. Make sure you have all components selected correctly to achieve the correct design.

AJ11-0058_1

First I thought I’d start with the Air Jordan 2012.

AJ 2012 spacejams
INSERT: Low in black
BASE & FLYWIRE: black/black
OVERLAY: In leather/black
SIDE LOGO: University Blue
LACE: black
MIDSOLE CUSHIONING: white
OUTSOLE: Translucent/clear
TONGUE TOP ID: Jumpman/black

 

 

Next lets go with the Jordan Fly Wade.

FW spacejams
BASIC COMPONENTS: All black
JORDAN LOGO: Old Royal
OUTSOLE: Translucent/clear
MIDSOLE: White

 

 

Onto the the Kobe VII System.

Kobe spacejam

Now, I know what your going to be thinking, Kobe isn’t Jordan as you will find no argument here lets remember this is a fashion blog and this is probably the closest he’s gonna get. I digress, so on to the spacejamming of the Kobe VII System.

BASIC COMPONENTS: All black
ANKLE CUFF: low
MIDSOLE: white
SWOOSH: Game Royal
HEEL CLIP: White
OUTSOLE: Translucent/clear

Lastly and probably one of my favorites in the set are the Air Max 90s Premium.

AM Spacejams
Solely for the fact that this template actually features a patent leather option,
the crowning jewel of the Air Jordan 11.

BASE: Ripstop/Black
MUDGUARD: Patent/Black
OVERLAY: Full-Grain Leather/Black
SWOOSH: Patent/Black
ACCENT: Black/Heritage Cyan
LINING: Black
LACE: Black
MIDSOLE: White/White
OUTSOLE: Clear/White
LOGO: Heritage Cyan

There we go chic-sters, these “Fake” IDs are sure to turn some heads. Once again don’t be discouraged by the price on some these. Exclusivity/custom factors are defiantely coming to play but its way better that paying crazy sneakerhead riot prices for the originals, just saying. Stay fresh my friends and remember.

The Dilemma

November 18, 2011

Waddup, world! Welcome to the inaugural post of the urban side of Society Chic. I come to you with loads of enthusiasm and nervousness about the first posting. I guess you can say “me siento muy excited.” I digress, so let’s jump right in.

Being somewhat of a ‘sneakerhead’, I’ve come across a dilemma that many of us share. What kicks are considered “Club/Lounge worthy?” For the most part, the more “Bouji” the club, the less likely you will be able to get in with sneakers. Maybe it doesn’t help that you’re trying to get in with Air Force Ones that look like they’ve been around since the 1980s, but if you are willing to compromise, I’m pretty sure you’ll be happy with the alternatives.. And also not look like you’re about to step into church.

First up, I thought I’d incorporate something that’s a bit more casual, but still has the soul/sole of a sneaker. The Vans Versa Carbon/Gum Colorway is a really clean shoe, with a timeless upper, simple paneling, and interesting details. Choosing a Darker color scheme and gum sole gives the impression of a Dress shoe. Though, the Versa is a skate shoe, ‘sneakerheads’ can feel free to wear the kicks at the skate park and then at the night spot afterward, although I would recommend dusting them off before you do.

Moving right along, finding integration between the two, just might be the combination you’re looking for. A classic Converse never seizes to amaze me (with innovation on a retro design). The All-star classic boot is a fine example of that tougher canvas then the original (available in chocolate or black). Not to mention, moccasin style toe and rounded heavy-duty laces that give the look of a “high end” boot with the feel of the “old school” Chuck Taylor

At last (and certainly not least), we find ourselves in the midst of one of the best sneaker brands ever.. The Nike Jordan sneaker collection. Now, the likelihood of you being able to rock any of the Air Jordan series, is pretty slim. Jordan has some causal counterparts to their infamous basketball line. In comes the Jordan Grown Series. One of my favorites, in the series, is the V.5 Low. Available in a variety of colors and materials, this shoe has clean lace, an up-front closure, mesh material, and Padded tongue with logo. Great for the ‘sneakerhead’ in all of us, but still passable as a mature casual sneaker.

 

Well.. There you have it, Chicheads! I hope your first time was as good for you as it was for me. I hope my posts help you out when suiting up for any nightly escapades. A key thing to remember: Everyplace is different regarding dress code. So, do the smart thing and choose wisely. If all else fails, you can always bring a spair set of shoes. My advice though… Call Ahead!

Dope is as dope does…
