BBHB Spring 2011 Men’s Style Guide Part 1 – Laid Back Style

April 6, 2011-

By Lauren

Sorry ladies, Pregnant In Heels talk will have to wait.

It was brought to my attention that I often leave men out of the BBHB, and those males who are fortunate enough to have become fans (or have inadvertantly glanced at their significant others laptop and bolted as soon as they realized what they’d gotten into) are feeling neglected. Gentlemen, this one’s for you…Follow these few quick steps to a  slammin’ Spring wardrobe.And don’t worry, you won’t end up in fedoras, bow ties OR pink shirts…I took some of your fellow gender-mates advice (Ladies…One is single, email me lauren@bigblondehair.com for details!) into consideration to bring you a guide to effortless style with only a few minor purchases. SO toss those beat up polos, Big Johnson T’s and madras shorts aside and read on.
