It is hard to think about country music and fashion without thinking about George Strait. He is a fixture, an icon. His look was featured in People this month. Want to get the look for yourself, or for your man?

George always wears a Resistol hat…black felt in the winter, straw in the summer.
And don’t forget plenty of starch to keep everything looking crispy and sharp.
Ok, I seem to have a slight addiction to People Magazine folks. Last week was all about the Style Watch issue….and this week it’s the Country Special. The cover is none other than Oklahoma native Toby Keith. The article talks about his ranch just outside Norman, Oklahoma, his daughter singing on his next album, coaching his son’s football team, raising horses and tons more. If you are a fan if his, this is a must read.
Toby is quoted as saying that his favorite meal is the chicken fried steak sandwich from Del Rancho. That isn’t the only Oklahoma food reference in the issue, another article about BBQ lists Blue Pig BBQ in Ardmore, Ok as Blake Shelton’s favorite.
What about you? What is your favorite Oklahoma meal?
We’ve covered dressing room tips and a guide to pockets…last up are some care tips provided by the Ultimate Denim Guide in the August 2010 Style Watch issue of People.
Don’t wash too often!! Wear them 3-5 times between washing. Sweet….my laundry pile was just cut in half!!
Be Gentle – turn your jeans inside out and wash in cold water with a color guard detergent. I always forget to wash in cold, but turning them inside out does help a bunch. That is one trick I try and always remember.
Hang to dry – If you can do this, more power to you. It really will help your jeans last…but I just can’t. Mine are drier bound. If you dry like I do, using the lowest heat will help to keep them from fading too, too fast.
Do not dry clean – this guide says that the chemicals can weaken the fabric over time. Good to know!
So there you have it. Great denim care tips and tricks.
Monday I shared with you the dressing room tips from People Magazine’s Ultimate Denim Guide. Today let’s chat about pockets.
Flap pockets add material and bulk and therefore are great for those wishing to increase their backside mass. Low pockets also increase the size illusion by pulling your eyes down.
High pockets draw your eyes up and therefore create the illusion of lift. To make your hips seem fuller, try pockets that are wide set.
No pocket styles leave it all uncovered….so it is you and no illusion!
Friday I’ll share with you their care tips so your jeans stay looking sharp.
The August 2010 People Magazine Style Watch issue included an “Ultimate Jeans Guide.” I was curious to see what tips and tricks it provided for denim. First up was their dressing room checklist…
Waist….they said it more eloquently than this, but their main point was to check to make sure the waist band sits comfortably and that you were not creating a large muffin top.
Rise…they recommend mid rise as the most universally flattering. Low rise works for those with a short torso and high rise for those with a long one.
Hips and Thighs….make sure there is no pulling. It looks and feels bad.
Butt….if you find a pair that fits, walk/sit/stretch and then take a second look to make sure they haven’t started to bunch or sag.
Inseam…decide what shoe (heels, flats, boots) you are going to wear with these jeans and check the length.
Good tips from the folks at People! Next up…pockets.
I am just not sure how I feel about denim diapers. When my son was in diapers, I was never big on him running around in just diapers….but in the heat and humidity of the summer, maybe it is the way to go. He probably would have been much cooler and happier in just diapers. Maybe these Huggies are a smart play. Your kiddo can be cool and comfortable, yet still a little more “dressed” than just a plain old diaper. Their tag line kind of has me sold…. “It’s the coolest you’ll look while pooping your pants.” Nice one.
Are you a fan of the Denim suit? You know what I mean…the denim on denim look? It has come and gone over the years, and according to the August In Style Magazine, it is back. They listed 10 New Style Statements and Denim on Denim made the list. I think this is one of those looks that can be done soo well…but also sooo easily messed up. The key is to mix denims, not match them. Pick a light to pair with a dark. A distressed along side a clean blue.
I am not one to question Justin Timberlake on much…he can pull almost anything off, but I’d say that this jean suit was a no. As for the dress…I’m kind of without words.
David Beckham on the other hand….this look is a yes.
So show me your best Denim on Denim. Post a picture on the Langston’s Facebook Fan Page.
