22 Nov

1. A Must-Read Book

Get lost in a book while traveling to your Turkey Day destination. Whether it’s a plane ride or a quick subway jaunt, a commute is the perfect excuse take a quick Instagram break. Our latest obsession is Diana Vreeland Memos: The Vogue Years, the inspiring history of the witty fashion editor and her storied years at the helm of the iconic magazine.

 2. A Cozy Knit

There is nothing better than bundling up in an oversize sweater on your day off from work. Here’s how we stay comfy without looking like a couch potato: this chic ombre topper that will take you from the kitchen to holiday shopping and a get-together with family and friends.

3. Seasonal Cocktails

Kick off your Thanksgiving feast with a toast to your family and friends. From hot spiced rum cider to cranberry martinis, festive cocktails are sure to be a hit at any get-together.

4. A Luxe Cashmere Blanket

The holidays are the perfect excuse to indulge. This beyond-luxurious cashmere throw from Hermes is on the top of our wish list and we can’t wait to snuggle up with it while watching some of our classic and new favorite holiday films: Love Actually and Moonstruck.

5. An Apple Pie Makeover

Apple pie is so last season. We’re loving this new iteration of the classic dessert from Smitten Kitchen because the rectangular shape means there is even more to go around. Just don’t spill any on your cashmere Hermes blanket…

6. Slim Illusion Jeans

We’ve all been there. We want to look stylish while chowing down on turkey and all of its delicious accompaniments, but usually that very act makes it nearly impossible to rock our go-to skinny jeans. Enter the Slim Illusion jean, our best-selling denim with intense stretch for a sexy silhouette. Whose up for seconds?

7. A Gorgeous Gift List

It’s a lot easier (not to mention more fun) to keep your holiday shopping organized with an on-trend planner, such as these colorful notebooks from Smythson. We’ll be making our lists and checking them more than twice, just so we can keep pulling these beauties out of our bags!

How To Get Mo

15 Nov

How’s your Mo doing? Movember is only halfway over so there is still plenty of time left to help change the face of men’s health….and have fun while doing so. We’ve tapped some of our favorite trendsetters to be on our #7FAMxMovember team and they’ve been growing their mo(ustache)s and rocking some awesome looks.

You can participate too – show us your mo (ladies, get creative!) on Instagram and win $1,500 of 7FAM style and $1,500 donated to Movember in your name!  Be sure to tag @7FAM and #7FAMxMovember to be entered to win! Wondering what to post? Here, let these Mo Bros show you how they created the perfect shot…

The Artsy Mo

Justin Livingston of Scout Sixteen is seeing double. He went the artsy route, using Mirrorgram to show not one but two pairs of his limited-edition 7FAMxMovember jeans (don’t worry, you don’t have to include these jeans in your shot! You can style your Mo any way you want). Play around with filters too! Aviary is a great photo editing app that will make your mo look professional in no time.

The Faux Mo

Image

Ladies (and mo-challenged gentlemen too), this one is for you. Isaac of Isaac Likes proves that you don’t need to grow a mo. Here, he gets creative and simply grabs some leaves for this seasonally-appropriate faux mo and he looks incredibly stylish while doing so. Brick backgrounds and cool graffiti walls are the perfect setting for a great shot that is far more interesting than the standard selfie. Plus, it’s a great excuse to get out and about for an autumnal walk around the city this weekend.

The Invisible Mo

Look, you don’t even have to show your mo! Bobby Hicks of This Fellow shot his #7FAMxMovember entry at the very beginning of November, before his mo had time to grow. But that didn’t stop him from rocking out and creating an amazing image. Funny faces, hilarious poses, wild attire and any and all props are encouraged – use your imagination!

Hope these Mo Bros got you inspired! Head over to Instagram to show your own mo.

DENIM THREE WAYS

8 Nov

It’s getting chilly outside and denim looks are ruling the streets from New York to Los Angeles to Paris to Milan. Whether dressed up or down, trendsetters are styling their denim every which way to stay cozy yet chic. Here, three of the top denim looks to take you from the office to Sunday brunch to date night and beyond.

Boys Club

Skinny denim goes sleek when paired with a tailored blazer or crisp button-down shirt…or even better, throw on both for optimal layering. A basic sandal or classic single-sole pump make this look office-appropriate while a pair of loafers completes a preppy ensemble. Add a pop of color for extra edge or stick with black accessories for chic graphic style.

Comfy Cool

What’s better than an excuse to rock cozy flannel, chunky knots and stripes? These girls embrace the chilly weather while maintaining a polished look by pairing their distressed denim with the season’s must-have sweaters and tops. Heels and an oversize clutch in a bold hue elevate the look and don a pair of sunnies to keep it cool while being snapped by The Sartorialist or Tommy Ton.

Go Wild

This season, animal print is everywhere from coats to pants to accessories and denim provides the perfect palette for trying this trend. The options are endless: a faux fur topper and classic boyfriend jeans is the ideal outfit for spending a Saturday pursuing your favorite vintage haunts and an always-in denim jacket worn with a swoon-worthy bag looks polished yet pretty for a lunch date. Leopard pants might be a style risk but you won’t end up on the Fashion Police if you keep it classy with a chambray shirt and basic overcoat.

Movember: A Partnership with Passion

1 Nov

 

Back in November 2012, a bunch of guys at the 7FAM headquarters in Los Angeles (even president Barry Miguel!) started rocking mustaches to help raise funds and awareness for Movember, the global men’s health charity encouraging men to grow and women to support the Mo (moustache) for the 30 days of November.

Image

The entire 7FAM team was so inspired by their co-workers that everyone wanted to pitch in a help in a much larger way while offering 7FAM fans the chance to join the team as well. Enter the special edition Movember jean. As an official partner of 2013, 7 For All Mankind is donating $20 for every from every purchase of the jean to change the face of men’s health.

Image

This isn’t your standard denim: a mustache is printed on the back pocket and the lining is, you guessed it, mustache print. And ladies? You can join too. The always-stylish women in the 7FAM office have been showing off the coolest nail art to support their mustache-growing Mo Bros.

So give yourself a clean shave today to get ready to start growing your ‘stache and practice your dance moves because next week, we’re offering you the chance to face off to win $1,500 and change the face of men’s health.
