Kors and His Commandments

August 7th, 2007 // 5 Comments

Michael Kors is synonymous with simple and stunning style. After his stint on “Project Runway” you couldn’t help but love his snarky yet painfully true commentary. Kors has passed down his “Rules” for turning it out. From carrying the right man-bag to the perfect vacation destination Details Magazine has his do’s and don’ts.

1. Every man–no matter his age, size, or style–looks sexy in a peacoat. I am peacoat-obsessed.

2. I have an issue with men carrying bags that look too slick. Messenger bags are the modern version of the briefcase. I had a collection of clutches as a teenager.

3. Cheesy music makes a party. Donna Summer or Madonna–that stuff gets people on the dance floor. Then you have to have junk food, done well, because that’s what everyone really wants.

4. You should have a wardrobe of jeans in different washes and fits–from the pair that’s so comfortable you could work out in them to the pair that you can wear with a tie and a sports jacket to dinner.

5. A perfect vacation has to have different moods. Capri does that for me. You can lie on a rock all day. Then you can go buy a pair of $400,000 earrings. Then you go out for an amazing dinner. Angkor Wat is the same: history, nature, luxury.

6. Women love men in color. Olive green and orange are the chicest colors in the world. Lavender and purple look great with gray and black. I hate Brady Bunch colors like teal and cranberry.

    Couldn’t get beyond #2 because I was LMAO at “I had a collection of clutches as a teenager.”

    Seriously, though, I like his tips at #6 about combining olive green and orange. Surprisingly flattering colors. Especially if you can afford Hermes. And Michael Kors, of course.

  2. Hey Cupcake

    “Peacoat” is an inherently funny word. Peacoat peacoat peacoat!
    My DOG, but I would love to be a fashion critic. And dress myself in Kors and $400,000 earrings.

    It took me a while to read the list because I was laughing so hard at “I had a collection of clutches as a teenager.” I just pictured Ms. Michael with his clutch under his arm walking to gym class.

    God, I love gay men!!!

    I kneel down at the altar of Kors. I simply adore this man (collection of clutches aside).
