Celebrity Style to Watch: Justin Timberlake

When it comes to style moves, Justin Timberlake has it down to a science. From tailored suits with patterned shirts to your not-so-average basic tees, there’s no denying he brought sexy back (to the style game, of course). But it’s his chill, laid-back vibe we love the most: relaxed jeans, casual kicks, and sleek shades.

Celebrity Style to Watch: Justin Timberlake
To snag one of his signature looks, follow these simple steps:

  1. Skip the suit and tie for this one. Start with a pair of relaxed straight-leg jeans in a medium or dark wash.
  2. Casually layer on a loose-fitting graphic tee and button-front shirt. Undo the buttons, give the collar a little push, and wear it untucked. Loosely roll the sleeves up to your elbows to show off some arm candy.
  3. You can’t go wrong with stylish shades. And throw on a hat, like a newsboy cap or fedora.

 
All you need is JT’s confident smirk and you’re ready to go.

For extra inspiration, head to our Leading Man: Get Justin Timberlake’s Off-Duty Look Boutique. Opens Monday, June 30, at 11AM ET.

Instant Inspiration: 5 Pinterest Boards We Can’t Get Enough Of

1. Nothing makes us smile like a fresh bouquet of tulips.

2. Pull out the picnic baskets. We’re bringing the sandwiches (and the wine).

3. Biking to work is a lot more enjoyable once the ice disappears.

4. Relentless rainstorms are just another excuse to buy new Hunter boots.

5. More daylight hours? A reason to pick up some sunglasses.

The #RueSprint: Polarized Express

Get Exclusive Access to These Sporty Sunglasses

We’ve already lost count of how many days we’ve been hustling for the #RueSprint, but the surprises aren’t stopping anytime soon. Today, it’s a pair of unisex polarized sunglasses from Smith Optics, and you can only snag them through this link for a mere 24 hours.

Did we mention they’re 70% off and just $29? Looks like there’s a little extra wiggle room for that two-day ski pass.

In Good Fashion: SOLO Eyewear

Images via SOLO Eyewear

Since 2011, approximately 2,400 people in need across the globe have had their vision restored. Another feat by UNICEF, you ask? Nope – it was by way of SOLO Eyewear, and their utterly chic bamboo sunglasses.

While eye care is so easy to take for granted (I can’t imagine getting through the day-to-day without my own glasses), it turns out that nearly one billion people around the world are without access to it. An even more staggering statistic? About 80% of the world’s blindness is preventable.

The brainchild of San Diego State University classmates (and now alums) Jenny Amaraneni, Craig Stern, and Dana Holliday, SOLO Eyewear’s model is simple: With each purchase of a pair of SOLO sunglasses, eye care (be it surgery or prescription glasses) is provided for two people in need. Working in part with L V Prasad Eye Institute, Aravind Eye Care System, and Restoring Vision, SOLO was able to fund 150 cataract surgeries and 2,250 pairs of reading glasses in just a year and a half – all through the sale of their sunglasses.

The sunglasses are, hands down, so cool. I’m equal parts obsessed with the Bamblues and pretty much every style from their RAW Artists Competition (they’re available on pre-order now, for $150).

The long and short of it? Get out there and spread the word about SOLO Eyewear (after you snag your own pair of shades, that is).
