SLIM Not as tight as the skinny, but gives a slimmer and more tailored look to a straight pant.

RELAXED Not as tight as the skinny, but gives a slimmer and more tailored look to a straight pant.

LOOSE Straight down from hips, with slightly more room in the knees and ankles then slimmer styles.

COLOR THEORY

As a rule of thumb: light wash denim should be avoided all together. Unless you're rockin some stark white skinny jeans

Light wash denim is the most casual denim option, as well as the most often to be unflattering. Lighter washes can sometimes be styled

madison " When it comes to [my boyfriends] clothes, I tend to prefer him in a simple button up. Like this white shirt- I think it makes him look nice and dressed up but still casual. I know that no matter what the situation or occasion he'll be comfortable, so he isn't going to be afraid of being his usual fun self that makes me laugh and smile and glad to be with him. "

bree "You can’t go wrong with a blazer. It’s pretty versatile and can be dressed up or dressed down. It’s also something that looks good vintage and worn as well as crisp and new. As a designer I appreciate people who can pull together different looks using the same staple pieces. I think, for guys, a fitted blazer, an oxford, a solid t-shirt, a cashmere crew neck sweater, dark slim fit jeans, and a well tailored wool coat are golden. Oh yeah, and I can’t resist a guy who wears a leather analog watch really well.”

FORT COLLINS, CO. The Choice City.

Located in northern Colorado and nestled in the foot hills of the Rockies, Ft. Collins is a perfect destination for fall vacation. At an altitude of nearly 5,000 ft, the city experiences an average of 300 days of sunshine every year. With nearly 40 parks within city limits, and easy access to natural sites just outside of them; it is almost impossible to run out of places to explore. And to add to the local scenery- and ensure that you will never have a moment of bordem- is an extensive list of bars, restaurants, and even some of Colorado's best breweries.

Horsetooth Reservoir Located just five minutes outside of Fort Collins, Horsetooth Reservoir is one of the most scenic spots in Northern Colorado. Stretching over six miles, and surrounded by 2,711 acres of open land; it is frequently populated by people boating, fishing, swimming, waterskiing, sailing, mountain biking, horseback riding, hiking, etc. Overlooking the reservoir is Horsetooth Mountain- part of the Rockie's Front Range. With its peak reaching 2,000ft above the city of Ft. Collins, a hike to the top will gain you a breathtaking 360 view.

Devil's Backbone Just about 5 mi south of the reservoir is another landmark not easily overlooked: Devil's Backbone. Known to the area as one of the most impressive and visible geologic landmarks, it is the perfect spot for an afternoon hike or bike ride. With over 2,000 acres of open surrounding land, the rock formation can easily be spotted from miles away. Although this jagged ridge may look like the ideal climbing challenge, bouldering is not allowed as the rocks are not stable. Instead theres 12 miles of trail to hike, bike, or horseback ride that follows along the ridge and then back up to the reservoir.

Red Rocks Ampitheater Only 80 miles outside the city of Fort Collins, and a quick 20min drive to Denver; the infamous Red Rocks Park and Ampitheater is a major Colorado destination. With a seating capacity of over 9,000, the shear size of the ampitheater is a site to see. The park is open to the public every day of the week, and when the weather is nice the ampitheater is littered with people excercising, meditating, eating, or just enjoying. 2014 CONCERTS SERIES: Although the majority of Red Rocks concerts are held earlier in the year, Its not too late to catch a last minute show in the series' final month. Heres the September 2014 concert scheduale:

KICK BACK One of the most neccessary items for fall is a reliable pair of leather boots. Boots cut just at, or slightly above the ankle provide a lot of versatility when it comes to pant pairings. With a wide range of styles and formalities, leather boots pair with everything from jeans to colored chinos. For a more formal look, opt for a sleek pair of black leather lace ups to pair with a tapered trouser.

" I like to describe my style as comfortable and cool, [and] the key to feeling comfortable is first and foremost fit. Also, I strive not to look 'standard'. I like to mix and match prints, patterns, and textures within each outfit I wear to give my appearance more depth. I'm not saying I walk around the street wearing printed paisley pants and a bold striped shirt, I like to be a bit more subtle then that. With years of experimenting, I feel like I've fine tuned the art of dressing. "w
