Fun fact. Close friends know exactly what style suits you. A few days back I shopped with some friends of mine, and after seeing the new collection of ZARA in the stores there was one item that stood out. On different days with different friends they all gravitates towards a certain sweater, calling my name to find me on the other side of the building, yelling: “Gosh, this is REALLY a Martin-sweater!”. Well, after hearing that three times, there is only one thing you could do. Buy that sh*t.
They were completely right, though. I already knew about the sweater, but was trying to save some money. #ohwell It is a very well-balanced black sweatshirt from ZARA, made of 81% cotton and 19% of polyester that creates a very soft base. And of course, let’s not forget the partly synthetic leather sleeves with zippers. Yes, they do come off and it automatically creates a whole different look. This time I wore it quite casual and sporty. Matched it up with some Bershka jeans and cap from Sacha. But you can expect this sweater making a come back in a more chic outfit. ;) See some more photos after the click and shop this look now!
It is official; autumn is here. The days are a bit colder than they used to be, leaves start to fall down and in the evening it’s getting darker even sooner. Personally, autumn is my favorite season. I love the colors and scenic pictures nature creates on trails and in parks. #sigh I don’t care about more rain or cloudy, colder weather. Wear your favorite trench and bring an umbrella. Enjoy the breeze. And of course, you can start layering with your clothes again. As with the temperature going down, you have to bring out your sweaters and cardigans again. Or you – just like me – use this excuse for buying new ones.
One of my new favorite pieces comes from ZARA. This dark sweater is also a cardigan. I think it’s great if you’re going for a sophisticated, yet comfortable style. Below, I wore my ZUMO pants from last season, but this classic is still available for you guys. I wore my Sacha Shoes boots to go more casual, but I believe dress shoes could also easily work with this look. See some more photos after the click and shop this look now!

Looks like the full ‘dapper look‘ is over everybody..! No more bow ties and full on floral prints on your shirt. Still, men’s fashion is growing more strong than ever. With more ‘contemporary meets sports‘ looks popping up on the runway, the mainstream fashion stores – where you and I buy my clothes – are slowly and more safely catching up to this trend as well. Smart, ’cause some men are still scared to buy tight sports leggings and matching shorts, like me. #aintgotthelegsforit So to get you more warm for these looks, this autumn you’re good with the more chic contemporary fashion style. Straight cuts and lines, premium quality products that lasts longer than one season and darker, warm colors with black setting the fundament of your outfit. Need some more inspiration?

The final outfit post of my trip in Barcelona. After a few days at the beach, my skin was completely burned and my eyes couldn’t handle my contacts anymore ’cause of the salt water of the ocean. So this is my, *urrgh-I-need-to-heal-look*… Charming, isn’t it? The sun really came through at the end of the trip, so I wore my new white tee by Topman, the denim shorts by Bershka and some flip flops by Converse. A very casual, light outfit that somehow really matches the boardwalk we were walking on that day. #nojoke Thanks to my buddy Danny for taking the pictures and for having a wonderful time while in Barça! Can’t wait to come back some day and feeling quite home again after arriving on the first day. :) See some more photos after the click and shop this look now!
