Daisy Jones & the Six is ​​a blueprint for delicious holiday style | Fashion

By avi maxwel / in , , , , , , /

A rock’n’roll saga of love triangles, cocaine and tour buses might not sound of immediate relevance to your real-life summer holiday. Or hey, maybe it does – no judgment! Either way, if you haven’t watched Daisy Jones & the Six, the Amazon Prime ten-parter, then I’m here to tell you that you really, really should.

Mainly you should watch it because it’s just so much fun. Sexy, gripping, atmospheric, the sofa-viewing equivalent of a perfect summer sun lounger novel. (It is based on Taylor Jenkins Reid’s perfect sun lounger read of the same name.) But specifically you should watch it for its wardrobe, because it is a blueprint for the most delicious summer-holiday style.

Daisy Jones & the Six is ​​the story of a rock’n’roll band in 1970s California, by which I mean it is basically the story of Fleetwood Mac (the makers said they were partly inspired by the band). Guitar cases and whiskey bottles and intimate love-hate duets sung up close and personal on stage in front of thousands. And the clothes – oh, the clothes! Breezy, floaty, semi-transparent blouses. Crochet vests and denim shorts. Faded T-shirts and cool fringed tapestry coats and skinny scarves. Finished with long

38 Best Affordable Clothing Stores for Stylish (and Savvy) Men to Shop Online

By avi maxwel / in , , , , , , , /

“Hearst Magazines and Yahoo may earn commission or revenue on some items through these links.”

Money, as the adage goes, can’t buy happiness. It can, however, buy your next favorite pair of sweat shorts or the latest version of the walking shoes you now have reason to wear—and you don’t even need a whole heap of it, either.

Turns out, the most expensive version of any given item isn’t always the one you should be investing in, especially when it comes to rounding out your wardrobe with a few well-priced essentials. After all, having piles of dollar bills to drop on any piece that catches your fancy at an online store with fresh-off-the-runway fits does not a stylish man make. Just because styles are affordable—”cheap,” if you will, though only in price, not in make—doesn’t render them any less worthy of consideration.

Luckily, we live in the era of the internet, and there’ve never been more options when it comes to copping super-covetable menswear on the low. Online stores for men, in particular, are flourishing, and for good reason. If you’re in the market for a few wallet-friendly finds, you, my friend, have come to the right place. We’ve trolled

Never buy anything too small, not even as diet “inspiration”

“As a male model, I’ve learned this the hard way. Even when I see something really eye-catching, if it’s the last one and it’s not my size, I still have to pass. I used to impulsively buy things because they were the last one and I thought I could make it work. But you can’t fix it if the fit is wrong.” —Michael Freeby, model and fashion photographer

Fashion and style are not the same thing

“‘Fashion’ is the tangible clothes, the ones you see in stores, in magazines, and on celebrities. Style, however, is intangible. Style is how you take the fashion and interpret it into an outfit or look that makes you feel like you. It’s not all about the fashion or trends, but rather about accepting yourself, working with what flatters your figure, finding what tickles your fancy, and wearing what makes

In Fashion: Joni Mitchell Always Ran Ahead of the Pack, in Song and in Style

By avi maxwel / in , , , , , , , /

“The last time I photographed Joni, as she was leaving the studio, she turned around and looked me in the eye and said, ‘So Norman, what have you learned after all these years of working on yourself?’ I laughed it off and didn’t answer at the time. In my most recent book, published in 2018, the storyline commentary describes my experience working with great artists that I call ‘boundary dweller creators,’ willing to jump into the unknown and go beyond boundaries that most people don’t cross. It took a couple decades, but that was my answer to her question. This image is a direct lift from the contact sheet (opposite) that I had marked with a grease pencil to provide selects for printing.” Photo: Norman Seef

As Joni Mitchell turns 80 on Nov. 7, revisit portraits and reminiscences by photographer Norman Seeff about his 1972-1985 photo sessions with the music legend from our Aug./Sept. 2023 issue. 

 

There is a video of Joni Mitchell singing her song Coyote that encapsulates everything I love about her style. She throws a pair of skates into a red sports car, then turns to offer her
