Google Tech Guru Gets Styled by Aleah Connect!

Ladies, you’re about to be struck by cupid!  Meet Earl, he’s a grey-eyed beau and Software Engineer at Google, Inc.  Inspired by his relocation from Chicago to Google’s headquarters in Silicon Valley, San Francisco, Earl is on a quest to liven up his look, so he asked for my style help.  Who better to add a beam of sunshine to his wardrobe than me, Aleah Connect!

During his brief visit to Chicago for a convention we scheduled a time to meet at H&M on Michigan Avenue – our style appointment was priceless, we had so much fun!  Before we could get started, though, this tech guru wanted to know all of our shopping trip details.  I gave him the scoop then whisked him off to the fourth floor men’s department, he was so easy to style.  Earl’s comfort zone, like most guys, is wearing basic t-shirts and jeans – so he wanted to step it up a style notch.

“Sleek” is how he described his ideal look.  So I decided to style him in vivid, slim fitting t-shirts, button-ups, cardigans and even colored pants, polished by modern cut blazers.  Many of the t-shirts are deep V neck, the most popular neckline among men today.  Others were crew neck, but made edgy by graphic prints.  Both blazers we tried were subtly toned and casual enough to be worn with jeans for casual Friday.  On the bottom we played with salmon-toned pants, color blocked with a teal t-shirt.  We took that same teal tee and swapped in a pair of white pants, which Earl LOVED!  He was all smiles while confidently cruising out of the dressing room with hands full of new goodies!
