Blogger, stylist, art director Dathias Hoang can be found at dathoang.com showing the fashion conscious man how to “shop smart” but “look expensive”. Here are some of our favorite of Dathias’ looks from his lookbook.nu page.
In this look Dathias aims to tackle “the traditional style of Wall Street with a modern approach”. In his blog post titled “Wolf of Wall Street”, he demonstrates how black and blue can work together to create a powerful look that veers away from the “untailored suit, heavy tie, and big suspenders” that he calls the “traditional style of Wall Street”. Check out his post for more pictures and to read more of his thoughts on how to effectively dress to close a deal.
There are some nice words of wisdom for dreamers included in Dathias’ November 10 2014 post titled “Wonderland” in which he showcases a brown long coat that he purchased from a thrift store for $12. In this look Dathias aims to demonstrate how a key piece can make all the difference in brining your whole look together. Check out the post on his blog to read more and view additional pictures with this look. As for the words of wisdom, they are very simple yet powerful. We’ve all heard them before but sometimes we need to be reminded: Do the things you want to do. Don’t just sit around thinking about doing them.

Avenue Sixty was created in 2012. Originally titled My Fashion Wants and located at the URL myfashionwants.com, Avenue Sixty began as a magazine style fashion blog with an ambition to become one of the top fashion blogs on the Internet. When that ambition was not realized, the founder decided to use avenuesixty as her own personal diary/journal/newsletter-magazine to live out her modeling fantasies and to keep herself actively engaged in writing–a passion since she was 11 years old.
