For me personally, after a long day of work I cant wait to come home and change into something a little more comfortable. When I saw this sweatshirt, sports bra, and boxer shorts I died! They are so adorable and look beyond comfy. Not only could I actually do a little in home yoga in these they are perfect for lounging around my Minneapolis apartment. :D
So I’m a little late on my blog updates:
I was out of town all weekend for a wedding and let me tell you, life sucks without free wifi. “There’s a Starbucks practically everywhere?!” Yeah, no… not in Southern Minnesota. However, I’m posting nonetheless and well, I’m rather thankful for this wedding experience.
Superdry won’t be designing Japanese inspired/British tailored wedding dresses soon, in fact, Superdry is rather far from formal. However, Superdry is not just about that London-Street look, they’re about finding great Superdry Brand pieces that help enhance and/or create a style of your own. So here’s a few tips on how to spice up a drab formal look into a Superdry chic kind of event.
The Leather Jacket: Leather jackets are all season kind of pieces. Let’s face it, churches and hotel banquet halls are always freezing inside. Furthermore, maybe it’s estrogen that causes you girls to get cold at random times, but it seems like girls are always cold! Now in most formal events, to fix this problem, you’d probably grab a pashmina, or a shawl… what are you 53? Kick it up by throwing a leather jacket over your strapless dress. Not only will it give you the warmth you need as you spend hours sitting in a cold chapel watching one of your random cousins get married, but you’ll look sexy, sophisticated and do I dare say it… better than the bride.
Espadrilles: I don’t get it, here these guys invite people to a wedding, sweet sixteen, debut, quince, what have you, and the invitations says “FORMAL ATTIRE..” but then they expect you to dance the night away on a dance floor, in your heels? How is one suppose to “criss-cross” during the chacha slide in six inch stilettos? Well, unfortunately, if you’re not the bride and or birthday girl and or Jewish girl making your way into the world you have absolutely no say on what to wear or not. If it’s formal dress code, don’t ditch your heels, instead throw some Superdry Espadrilles into your bag. They’re compact and lightweight so they’ll fit in any small bag, but also give the comfort and support you need when the DJ puts on Lil Jon. They come in a variety of colors to go with your outfit and let’s be honest all the ladies will be jealous when their feet start dying in the middle of the YMCA.
The Watch: and finally a little something for the guys. Superdry doesn’t really sell suits n’ such, but it’s a the little things that really help bring a look together. If you’re my dad, it’s usually cufflinks. If you’re a fashion-sexual, like myself, it should be a great tie bar or a colorful pair of socks. However, don’t forget your watch! I know, you check the time on your phone, but watches are underestimated accessories. They represent classic elegance. As in, I’m so sophisticated I check time with my watch and not my phone. This Superdry Emperor watch, can really bring that class and sophistication to your look, but also bring that Superdry edge that is so distinctly you. This way when your great auntie starts doing her own rendition of the Cha-Cha slide you can look at that watch and know.. it’s time to go.
There seems to be a theme within all my blog posts. As in, there’s a little something for everybody and every occasion at Superdry. Maybe it’s not obvious, but it’s a the little details that really contribute to somebody’s overall style.
Oh and I know that my wedding date and I are not wearing anything Superdry in that top picture, but let’s be honest, how good do I look in seafoam green?
Stay classy kids! Even if school is out.
A letter of apology:
About a month ago, I posted a status about my total and complete disdain for cargo pants. I was passionate that the word cargo should be reserved for ships and safaris and was completely against people wearing clothes that didn’t serve a utilitarian purpose (come on, do you really put cargo in your cargo shorts?) I refused to try even Superdry cargos on in my first two shopping extrusions, wondering what company would hire a stylist that thinks me, Tyler-James Toledo, would rock a cargo pant.
I did my final shopping extravaganza on Thursday at Superdry, and I was feeling a little blue. Because I was wearing a lot of blue and es, because my time as Superdry swag ambassador is coming to a close, but also because I hate summer. Well… summer fashion. I don’t care for shorts all that much (though I do own a pair of great Superdry shorts, but I’ll save that for another blog), nor do I swim, therefore, swimwear is out of the question. It’s getting around that time when jeans and chinos are getting a little too predictive of me, and what is a fashion kid suppose to do?!
My partner in crime aka Krystal Marie Peal, was trying on some random things, so I said why not?! Besides the cargo pants were just outside the fitting room anyway, in fact, I’m pretty sure I walked out in the store (unaware!) in my underwear, very chic underwear, but underwear nonetheless, and I grabbed a pair of military green cargo pants. I put them on, KNOWING I’d hate them, rolled up the ends like a good little hipster, went out yelled for Krystal and she said… “oh my god you can totally rock the cargo pant..” WHAT?!?!?! Was she joking?! I looked in the mirror and there I was, a great colored neutral pant, with pockets on the side, not to hold things in, but to add esthetic awesomeness. The pant fit my butt like it was nobody’s business, and I’m not going to say I died for cargo pants.. but I said… “hmmm… I kind of like these.”
After gallivanting in the store in my new find and getting some complements from the Superdry MOA Stylists, I gave in and got my first pair of cargo pants since like… what? The fifth grade?
Therefore, I’d like to say I’m sorry. What? Just because I’m cute doesn’t mean I’m always right (though I’m right a lot of the time.) Cargos are in, just be sure that it’s a great pair of cargos that fit. Try a different color other than khaki for a cooler, cleaner look. You’ll be a believer. I promise.

Best part of all… SUPERDRY will be presenting 15 looks to walk the runway!
Today I did my first ever model fitting, and it was tons of fun. Like, seriously, I’m not just tumblelin’ that. I was totally having a Rachel Zoe moment as in, getting substitutes, having to find pins and such, finding shoes, cuffing pants. It was a total fashion moment.
The best part of it all was how excited the models and those rehearsing were that Superdry was going to be represented.
"oh my gosh! Can I just have this dress?!"
"Dude, Superdry I think is blowing all the other retailers out of the water!"
"I’m not sure what Superdry is… but I kind of love it…"
comments like that get me pumped for events like these. THAT’S WHY IF YOU’RE IN THE AREA COME OUT AND SUPPORT! Because not only is it good fashion it’s great people to. It’s gonna be a good show! Hope to see everyone there!
Tonight Superdry UMTC participated in the second annual scrubbed into fashion event. Good music. Great fashion design, but most of all we were able to raise awareness and some funds for the Smile Network. Because like a Superdry technical windcheater, supporting a cause is always in fashion.
I think every man and woman needs a leather jacket in their wardrobe. And not just because Hunger Games star Josh Hutcherson rocks this Superdry “Brad” Leather Jacket like it ain’t nobody’s business! (My bad hairy chest swag!) No, but really, leather jackets are timeless pieces. If you take this jacket that Josh is wearing and send it to 1973, it would still be totally chic as it is today. That is why when shopping for a leather jacket, don’t be stingy remember, you’re paying for the years of warmth, compliments, and “omg you look like Josh Hutcherson” comments. Invest in your fashion. I die for this “Brad” leather jacket, but Superdry has tons more that they sell year round (leather year round? yeah, guess it’s a British thing) click the pic and check them out!
