When you get ready for a special occasion, it’s important to adopt your own personal style. Besides making you look better, a personal style helps you feel better. After all, we’re all individuals, which means we each have our own look that works for us. The only issue, though, is it can be difficult to define your personal look. That’s where Nordstorm’s Virtual Styling Services can help you out. Nordstrom’s Virtual Styling Services provide a bespoke experience, like having your very own personal stylist but without needing to leave your home. Start with a Style Quiz, consult with Nordstrom Stylists, and even book a free video chat with a stylist to choose clothing, accessories, and personal products that define your unique style. Nordstrom’s Personal Styling works because it focuses on a personal connection, the convenience of virtual services, and products selected to match and define your personal style.

The Nordstrom Personal Styler is an integral component of Nordstrom’s Trunk Club box service. As a Trunk Club subscriber, which you can start or stop at any time, you can have trunks of clothing sent to you as regularly as you like. Shipping is free and you only pay for what you keep — return shipments are free, too.

Trunk Club shipments encompass different styles, occasions, and budgets. Unlike some subscription services, you’re not tied to anything. You simply request a Trunk Club box when you want some new clothes. It’s ideal if you’re not quite sure what you’re planning or even when you might need the clothing.

Nordstrom’s Trunk Club works well for every occasion. Want to look extra good for a presentation at work? You can pick out a style that suits that need. You can select casual wear for a beach visit just as easily as find the ideal look for a hot date coming up. With the Personal Styler, the Trunk Club is your buddy in fashion, encouraging you to try something new and create the best look for your body.

Of course, none of this would be much use if you didn’t know what to buy, and that’s where the Nordstrom Style Quiz and other Style-defining services come in. The Style Quiz works like a personal stylist who visits virtually via a web browser from the convenience of your own home.

All you need to do is think about your budget, the colors you prefer to wear, and it’s helpful to know your size, too. From there, the Nordstrom Style Quiz offers plenty of advice, suggesting the brands and a style that might work for you in creating your personal look. The beauty here is that it comes up with suggestions that you might not have previously thought of (especially if you’re not knowledgeable about clothing) and encourages you to try something new.

Nordstrom Trunk Club items typically range from $50 to $300 as you’d expect from one of the best affordable online clothing stores for men so there’s something for every budget here. The only additional cost is a $25 styling fee but it’s applied toward anything you decide to purchase and is waived for Nordstrom cardmembers.

The Style Quiz may be all you need to take action on defining your personal style and ordering Trunk Club items that are right for you. You can also make an immediate virtual Stylist Connection ask questions or advice. Perhaps most impressively, you can book a free 30-minute virtual video call with a Nordstrom stylist for help with fashion and personal styling tips.

With clothing options ranging from shorts for the summer to smart business wear, the Nordstrom Trunk Club subscription box is your new fashion-conscious friend. If you’re looking to change up your style, this is the ideal service to try. You won’t be disappointed by the results and you just might discover a look you never realized would suit you so well.

If you’re a WWII history buff, you’ll love these field boots from Viberg
Viberg debuts authentic N-1 Field Boots
Viberg N1 Field Boots

If you consider yourself a history buff with your Netflix history full of World War II documentaries and "Band of Brothers" on repeat, then we've got your next shoe purchase from Viberg ready to go. But first, a little backstory. N-1 Field Shoes were often called "boondockers" which originated from the Tagalog word "bundok" meaning mountain. They became a crucial part of the American military uniform during World War II, and were specifically designed for the U.S. Navy.
N-1 Field Shoes: A history

The N-1 Field Shoes were exceptionally sturdy, made from steer hide suede, and hand treated with dubbin to give them water resistance and durability. They featured a rubber and cord sole that gave them excellent traction in various terrains and were extremely practical in harsh conditions, both combat and weather-wise. In the past, the soles were made from recycled car tires and surplus nylon, which was a strategy implemented to conserve resources during wartime material shortages. They remained popular after the war, and are highly sought after by collectors due to their historical significance.

Gordon Ramsay’s watch collection is as ostentatious as his personality
Gordon Ramsay's watch collection is absolutely iconic
Audemars Piguet Code 11.59 Selfwinding Flying Tourbillon 26396NB

Gordon Ramsay is known as the straight-talking, okay, cussing, chef who has taken over television with some of our favorite reality shows; from Hell's Kitchen to Kitchen Nightmares, and the best of all, Hotel Hell. Amidst all of that, he's never exactly been known for his high-end fashion, preferring simple t-shirts or button-downs and jeans. Who hasn't seen that tiny suitcase he carries with him when he stays at those horrifying hotels? It's barely a carry-on for the plane! But, what he lacks in streetwear he makes up for in jewelry, and Gordon Ramsay's watch collection is full of some of the most iconic pieces restaurant money can buy.
Gordon Ramsay's watch collection

Gordon Ramsay is a top chef, a lord of the kitchen if you will, and apparently, he's a top watch collector as well with his collection featuring some truly stunning pieces, from Rolex to Omega, and Audemars Piguet thrown in for good measure.

Bravur Grande Boucle IV watch: A cyclist’s dream timepiece
Check out the Bravur Grande Boucle IV
La Grande Boucle IV watches

The Tour de France is the pinnacle of the cycling world, and it’s only just that it gets a special edition watch for the occasion. Thanks to Bravur, the newest addition to their Grand Tour series is a must-have for anyone looking to celebrate the event. With their new Grande Boucle IV watch, Bravur brings all of the elegance and history of the Tour de France into a timepiece that’s ready for cycling and non-cycling days. With subtle details that bring in the richness of the event, this watch is a special piece that will likely become a fan favorite. As it is Bravur has a series of collections that pay homage to the greatest races in the world, and with the Boucle IV watch, this fourth watch is set to be the ultimate rendition that encapsulates all that the Tour de France embodies. 
Grand Tour- La Grande Boucle IV

Not only is La Grand Boucle IV made with the high quality that surrounds Bravur, but it’s the small subtle details that truly bring the spirit of the Tour de France. With a 38.2mm stainless steel case and sapphire crystal caseback, this timepiece is sleek and modern. However, it’s the silver white with tarmac texture and polka dot pattern on the dial that gives it its character. Complete with a checkered finish line pattern on the rotor visible through the clear caseback, this watch does contain symbols of the sport. Perhaps the most obvious symbol of the Tour de France comes in the shape of the statement yellow strap and the vibrant yellow accent in the 15-minute counter at 3 o’clock.
