Ahoy Capt'n!


Blazer: Iconic
Shirt: H&M

Whether its the Hamptons or Saint Tropez, men's style during summer has ultimately changed! Gone are the days where you see those over-sized Hawaiian shirts with very loud colors and prints. They have been replaced by blazers, chino shorts, loafers, boat shoes and button downs.
Seriously! Your typical white shirt and board shorts guy is not the ideal summer look anymore. Go ahead and search Google images or Pinterest and key in Men's Summer style and its not all about beachwear anymore.

Lifestyle. That is what summer is selling these days. Like the locations I've stated before, most of the people who stroll around those beautiful locations are upscale and jet set people on a summer escape from their very busy lives and they're not shy to flaunt it.


You see pictures of socialites and multimillionaires wearing expensive clothes during summer that reached the radars of runways to RTW's and there you have it, a full refurbishing of Men's summer style. Also, not all people likes to go on a expensive week-long vacation in Bora Bora or Maldives so some people tend to focus on city life and focus on looking their best instead.

About the look: I'm using nautical elements again with the anchor printed shirt, topped with a blazer and spiced it up a bit with a little navy brooch pined in the blazer's lapel. Finished the look with light colored chino shorts and boat shoes.


Crossing stuff on The List:

10 Overcoats/ Casual Jackets = 1 Overcoats/ Casual Jackets
10 Long Sleeves Polo = COMPLETE!

Always have fun!

All Hands on Deck



Sweater: Bershka

Oh Summer, you have arrived! :D

I used to despise Summer because I couldn't wear most of the things I'd wear during the cool seasons. But now, since I discovered Nautical fashion I became obsessed!




Sea, Sun and Sand. That's what's usually comes into my mind whenever its summer here in Abu Dhabi. If you tell someone who's never been in UAE something about the country, the first thing that person would probably think is either Dubai or Desert.

But UAE, especially Abu Dhabi has one of the nicest beach resorts in the Middle-East.


This is Monte Carlo in Saadiyat Island, and we always go there during Summer. Its a very nice beach club where the amenities are top class, the beach is very nice, the pool is amazing and the Grilled Chicken Sandwich w/ Carrot and Potato fries are so yummy!

I never really like carrots, but when I ate this, I couldn't stop eating them! :D

Now about the look, I'd say this would be a very nice after beach look or before sunset look. I got this sweater from Bershka and I knew immediately that I would do a summer look with it. I paired it with a white trousers, a fedora hat, loafers and a cool Ship's Wheel necklace I DIY-ed in 2012.

Oh btw, we moved in a new house! So that means new areas to take picture of (yey!). And what I like about this place is that we have our own beach (not sure if the water is clean though, but I get to use the area for location shoots). Also explains why I have been posting late since last week (sorry guys...) since I did a LOT of packing and unpacking, fixing this and that. On top of that I took a road test to get a Driver's License here in Abu Dhabi and I was able to pass it in one try (had a lot of stress preparing for it though, its terrible!).


Here's a picture of my new room! Well its not yet fully complete since I need to change a couple of things, we've replaced the bed and got rid of that ridiculous shelf for my shoes. (Will update the progress on my next post. ^_^)

Now get out there in the beach, get a nice tan, and have fun! :D

Counting Stars


Sweater: Choies


Well as we all know summer is just around the corner... However, its really strange that until now the weather is still very cool (not that I'm complaining), its even weirder today because its raining.



Anyway, since the weather is like this I guess wearing a look with strong and minimal colors will be a great outfit when the day is dull. And I if there's a color you would instantly notice in this kind of weather... It would most definitely be Red! I'm sure its common knowledge now for ladies that they should wear hard make up during rainy season and wear a deep red lipstick. Well I guess it also translates to what clothes you should wear. I greatly suggest deep Red and Blue, for me they're the best colors when it comes to gloomy days. I wouldn't suggest Yellow and White or other light colors for obvious reason (rain drop marks, mud, etc).

Today, I'm wearing a awesome sweater that I got from Choies:

Get this super cool sweater on this link!: http://www.choies.com/product/contrast-striped-stars-sweatshirt-couple-style-of-women-and-men?cid=3672

Now I know you've probably seen this sweater a long time ago around the Fashion Blog world (You'll probably say "Oh another fashion blower wearing that sweatshirt" lol!) but what can I do, It's that awesome! I've only seen people wearing it with just basic jeans, shoes and cap. So I spiced it up a bit by wearing boots, glasses and accessories that looks nice together.

Lo's Closet has officially reached another 1000 genuine fans @ LOOKBOOK.nu!!!! Now I've reaced 4000 fans! I just want to take this opportunity again to thank you guys so much for being so awesome!

That's why I titled this look as Counting Stars (No.. not the song! :/) it's because you all are my stars! And without you all, I would have probably stopped doing this a long time ago but you guys kept me going by following me on all my social media platforms and I'm just so happy and thankful to all of you who are still following me and to those new people who fanned me at LB as well.


I also want to thank Choies again for sending me some of your stuff and helping complete my target! I'm really happy and glad that I get to feature some of your clothes! ^_^

10 Sweater = 4 Sweaters

Always have fun!

Lo's Closet Sketches: Natalia Poklonskaya




Hey There guys! :D

Well I got a bit bored during the weekend so I decided to do something fun.

I just decided that whenever I have time. I will upload some videos of random sketches/illustrations I'll do in the future. Maybe I'll record doing a couple of Little Lo sketches as well. ^_^



Well about the illustration. Its all over the news that a Crimean attornery general named Natalia Poklonskaya is currently hitting Japan's radars. Some Japanese illustrators were captivated with her beauty that they made a lot of cute anime illustrations of her.

So, I decided to make it my first ever random illustration here in Lo's Closet! Enjoy my first ever video and please also subscribe on my youtube channel: http://www.youtube.com/user/loscloset :D





What do you guys think??? :D

Always have fun!

What it Takes To Wear Pink


Cardigan: Jules
Shirt: Pull and Bar
Shoes: New Balance

This would be an example of my everyday outfit: shirt, cardigan, jeans and comfortable shoes. My ultimate "to-go" look.




Now I know you guys have seen me wearing preppy, dapper or street-style clothes, but what you guys don't know is that this is how I would normally look like almost everyday.

Well it depends on the weather really, but even if the sun rises up to 40ÂșC I don't mind wearing a cardigan (I would change the button down shirt to a T-shirt though). I remember when cardigans went back in fashion in 2007, I was obsessed with them. I still cant forget that time when I borrowed one from a friend to wear on a party and I was so drunk I found out it was ripped a day after the party! lol!

Now about the look, lately I am becoming more and more comfortable wearing pink. Its now a color that is necessary to be in my closet. People say it takes a lot of courage for men to wear Pink, but I guess the only trick is slowly work your way through it. Try other colors that are bright and fun and when you think you can pull it off, wear it and don't think what other people will say. Besides, its just a color right? When you wear something that not a lot of people would normally wear and when you make it work, that's what people will see, and in the end it will feel good and it will look good on you.

In this outfit, I topped it with a cardigan (Jules) which fits perfectly well with the shirt (Pull and Bear) and reflects a great color mix then I added a different color palette with the shoes (New Balance) to give the outfit a little bit of a light boost.

What other colors you think I haven't worn that you think would look good on me? Do share on the comments below! ^_^

Crossing more stuff on The List:


10 Long Sleeves Polo = 1 Long Sleeves Polo
5 Cardigans/Hoodies = 1 Cardigans/Hoodies
7 Shoes = 2 Shoes

Always have fun!
