Color Blocking 101 for MEN

So yea, I went on a slight hiatus... I totally apologize!.... But  after a few chats with some of my guy friends about their spring/summer shopping choices,and realizing that NONE of them knew what 'Color Blocking' was....I figured there maybe a few more helpless guys out there in need of HELP!

So gentlemen this is for YOU...

What is color blocking?
Color Blocking is a daring trend that combines different colors that support and compliment each other.

What colors compliment?
Depends on how bold YOU are.....But safe bets are two colors at a time i.e. pink/black, red/green, blue/yellow, etc.....But if you are bolder kinda guy, step out and try three colors, brown/yellow/cream, yellow/green/brown,etc.

What are your thoughts on color blocking?
I actually LOVE it!!!! But PLEASE don't let it get out of hand!

What are your favorite pieces in color blocking?
I like the blazers, and bold dress pants....I feel like these can make a break an outfit if done right(or wrong)

What kind of shoes and accessories  should I wear?
NO SNEAKERS PLEASE!!!!! A pair of toms,colorful dress shoe,or a casual shoe will do......A hot frame will go nicely or if you are really feeling it,a nice bag or colorful belt!
Okay guys,I hope this started you guys off right for your spring and summer shopping.....
Good Luck!

The tale of two identities.

As children, most of us are raised to go to college, get good jobs and strive for greatness. As black children, most of us are raised to go to college, be better than 'them' so you can't be denied, strive for greatness and act accordingly in spaces that are not our own. As a lot of us grow up, we take heed to our lessons, aiming for success, entering spaces (and tax brackets) that weren't able to be accessed by our grandparents and sometimes our own parents, but struggle because we aren't taught the rules of 'the game' nor do we start out from a equal space than our colleagues.  Imagine taking your 5 year old child, telling them they have learn all the 1st grade through 6th grade material at once in a room full of 11 year olds who are already dealing with advance placement work... So we are forced to learn on our own and quickly, how to 'act' ,where to be authentic ourselves, which hairstyles to wear ,what to wear to off hours company events,
