OBSERVAMÉ Apparel Line

ATTORNEY AND FORMER LAW SCHOOL ASSISTANT DEAN LAUNCHES INNOVATIVE ATHLETIC, ATHLEISURE, AND HEALTHCARE PROFESSIONAL APPAREL LINE OBSERVAMÉ

After a year of research and development, ObservaMé launched a line of sports, athleisure and healthcare professional apparel that sets the company apart from other brands in the industry. Karen D. Fultz-Robinson, a former attorney now fashion designer, has chosen the United States, specifically Tampa, to be the headquarters for all activities involving the design, manufacturing and distribution of the ObservaMé clothing lines for men and women.  

The ObservaMé brand was developed to meet the demands of those living active lifestyles while addressing the need for easy access to personal fitness trackers and watches while training. All active wear shirts include a provisionally patented, one-of-a-kind, design that allows for easy viewing and access to fitness devices directly through the sleeve. Recently, Fultz-Robinson also learned that there was a need for the patent design to allow access to watches in the medical field, which led to the development of the ObservaMé compression sleeves.

As a marathon runner, Fultz-Robinson knows that training happens under many weather conditions and access to fitness tracking devices should not be a distraction. The ObservaMé design concept was born during a 15-mile run. Fultz-Robinson developed sketches and assembled a team to help her put together the mock-ups and final patterns.

“As an athlete, regardless of weather, I wanted to track my progress – pace, heart rate, and distance, and sometimes you just want to know what time it is,” said Fultz-Robinson. “Why should something seemingly so simple be difficult to access?  Athletes or anyone living an active lifestyle shouldn’t have to struggle to view their devices.”

Today, the product line has grown to include the signature shirts along with vests and performance pants and a variety of accessories. ObservaMé’s brand name was also chosen by Fultz-Robinson to explain the company’s purpose for its customers. ObservaMé means “watch me” in Spanish.

“We help the consumer watch their performance and provide a stylish look that draws others to watch them as they compete or overcome performance barriers,” said Fultz-Robinson. “It references the clocks (watches) on our wrists but also encourages accountability, which helps us strive to maintain our fitness goals.”

While all long-sleeved ObservaMé apparel has been designed to stop the need for tugging or placing straps over the sleeve, each article of ObservaMé active wear is hand-made with high-quality dry wick material and some provide UV protection for active lifestyles (i.e., running, cycling, hiking, boating, golfing, hunting, and etc.). The streamlined designs contour to all body types for easy flexibility during any activity and all-day comfort, and the fabric is soft to the touch which prevents chaffing. The compression sleeves, which also provides easy access to watches and fitness trackers, can be used by athletes for sun protection or quickly convertible warmth, but have also been tested for use by those in the medical profession to prevent skin contact with inadvertent splashes from contaminants while allowing for monitoring vitals and staying warm.

The ObservaMé apparel line for men includes half-zip and crewneck shirts, hoodies, vests, full-zip jackets with hoods and performance pants. Women’s athletic/athleisure wear includes half-zip and V-neck shirts, full-zip jackets with hoods (with a high/low option), vests, hoodies, and long and capris style performance pants. All apparel is available for purchase at www.observame.net, and during various athletic events nationally.   ObservaMé has previously appeared at the Boston and Detroit Marathons.

All products are manufactured at ObservaMé’s headquarters in Tampa, located at 14260 Carlson Circle, under Fultz-Robinson’s supervision to ensure the quality of each product meets the high standard set by the company.

Before founding ObservaMé, Fultz-Robinson practiced state and federal commercial and business litigation with the Tampa office of Sheehe & Associates, P.A., and was an assistant dean and professor at Cooley Law School’s Tampa Bay campus. Before moving to Florida, she was a partner and practiced commercial, business, subrogation and recovery litigation, as well as family law at the law firm of Cozen O’Connor in Atlanta, Georgia, and was an assistant vice president at Bank of America in the Estate Settlement Division. Born and raised in Detroit, Michigan, Fultz-Robinson earned her bachelor’s degree in International Relations at Michigan State University and juris doctor from Thomas M. Cooley Law School’s Lansing, Michigan campus.

3 Pro Tips to Master Your Holiday-Season Fashion

The holiday season is in full swing, which means you’ll need the perfect outfit for the endless number of occasions on your calendar. From holiday work parties to get-togethers with family and friends, you’ll be diving deep in your wardrobe if you want to avoid wearing the same outfits over and over again during the next few weeks.

To keep your style fresh and your outfits chic, here are three pro tips to help you master your holiday season fashion.

1. Invest in Quality Outerwear

Unless you’re lucky enough to live in a region with warm winter weather, you’ll likely be bundling up every time you go outside this holiday season. This means the cute outfit you spent hours putting together will inevitably be covered up by your bulky coat. If you’re headed to a party, this isn’t a big deal, as you’ll likely shed it as soon as you make your entrance.

But if you have an outdoor date to see Christmas lights or are going out for dinner and drinks and need to be able to get from one place to the next without freezing, you might be wearing that coat a bit longer. In that case, it becomes just as much a part of your holiday outfit as your dress or favorite skinnies.

To keep your coat from ruining your holiday look, invest in some quality outerwear. A black wool coat or sleek khaki trench will help keep you looking winter chic without sacrificing warmth. Plus, these styles are classic enough that you won’t need to worry about them going out of style from one season to the next. 

If you live in an area that experiences below freezing temperatures this time of year, a warm, puffy down-filled coat is another good choice. Indeed, it will provide you with a little extra warmth, as well as help you stay trendy this holiday season.

2. Dress Up Your Year-Round Staples

The holiday season and all its parties, glitz and glamour lasts less than three weeks from start to finish, give or take a week if you start celebrating before Thanksgiving. But if you’re buying new holiday outfits every year, only to stop wearing them after Christmas, you’re wasting your shopping budget on items that are useless for more than 11 months of the year.

Rather than starting from scratch for your holiday outfits, look in your closet for items you can dress up for your next party or date. For instance, your favorite little black dress can easily become holiday ready with the addition of a colorful scarf, glittery jewelry or a pair of red or green tights. By only buying a few accessories, you can save your shopping budget for items you can enjoy year round, like a new little black dress.

3. Layer on an Oversized Sweater

While you’re shopping for something new, sweaters are another good choice. The right one can be dressed up or down, and you’ll no doubt stay warm all season. When in doubt, layering an oversized sweater over a dress, skirt or leggings is an easy way to look chic and stay warm this holiday season. Whether it’s tossed over a fitted black dress or a flowy midi skirt, the result is effortless polish. Big, bulky sweaters of all shapes, colors and textures are in right now, so go with what you like. 

Mastering Your Holiday Style

Whether you’re prepping for a holiday party or a low-key Christmas with family, these pro tips can help you look chic and stylish all season long!

Chic and Unique: How to Wear a Leather Jacket and Add Your Own Flare to It

Leather jackets are timeless. So, it can be hard to wear them in your own way. Here’s how to wear a leather jacket and let your personal style shine through.

In all the annals of style history, you would be hard-pressed to come up with a more iconic single item than the leather jacket. From the battlefront to the home front, the fashion elite to the rebels, and transcending time and nationalities, the leather jacket pops up everywhere.

In fact, it’s such a ubiquitous piece that you’d be equally hard-pressed to figure out how to wear a leather jacket while making the look your own.

Fortunately, a good leather jacket can be as versatile as it is timeless. It’s all just a matter of matching the statement that you want to make with the right style.

Leather Jacket Styles

Leather jackets as we know them have been around for more than a hundred years. In that length of time, numerous styles have come about, each of which comes with its own history and carries its own connotations.

You want to make the leather look your own. But in order to do that, you need to pick the right style to start with.

The Classic

The classic leather jacket is the most understated of the bunch. With minimal frills, the most important thing here is to find one that fits properly as the way it sits on your body is everything.

The classic is the most conservative option, and therefore the most flexible. It is equally at home in the streets as it is in the office. But it’s also the least ambitious and doesn’t have the same potential as other options.
It’s safe and reliable if a bit basic.

The Biker Jacket

The choice of rebels and iconoclasts everywhere, from Marlon Brando in The Wild One to the rough look of the Ramones.

As the name implies, these were the jacket of choice for early motorcycle enthusiasts. Their robust construction is excellent for shielding a rider from the wind, and provide some protection from road rash in the event of a crash. In fact, they’re still popular with riders of both motorcycles and dirt bikes for those very reasons.

But whether you ride or not, they’re still an iconic look, if a bit limited. They make for excellent streetwear but are not the most appropriate in business or formal settings. At best you’ll look ill-dressed, and at worst out-of-touch.

For that reason, they’re best reserved for environments where you can let your hair down and be yourself.

Flight and Bomber Jackets

These could technically be considered distinct styles, but as one came from the other, it felt appropriate to group them together.

Despite leather jackets being associated with motorcycling, they actually trace their existence back to the early days of aviation, though they served much the same purpose. Early airplanes didn’t have enclosed cockpits, so you can imagine the kind of cold and wind that pilots would have had to deal with.

Flight and bomber jackets come in a variety of cuts and styles. Many come with sheer lining, a holdover from when their function was to keep pilots from freezing in their cockpits. For this reason, they make excellent winter wear.

But there is a variety of lighter options that will serve you well throughout the fall and springtime. In any case, this is a classic style that is acceptable to wear in most situations. Depending on what you wear it with, it can be strictly casual or used to add some personality to your office wardrobe.

The Racer Jacket

Though not strictly European, I tend to consider these the overseas cousin of the American biker jacket. After all, they have much the same origin.

Recreational motorcycling really took off in the years after World War II, with young bikers both stateside and abroad finding the need for a jacket that was heavy enough to withstand the elements.

In contrast to the more elaborate biker jacket, though, the racer jacket is comparatively slim an minimalist. It is more fashionable in general and doesn’t carry the same rough and tumble connotations as its cousin.

For that reason, it is a very versatile piece and an excellent choice for someone who wants to make a statement but still look sophisticated at the same time.

How to Wear a Leather Jacket as Part of a Style Statement

When wearing a leather jacket, you really want it to be the core of your outfit. The jacket should do the talking, therefore, the rest of your look should be understated. However, understated doesn’t mean irrelevant.

The most important decision at this stage is if the look you’re going for is having you dress up or dress down. Are you going for a raw iconoclast vibe or is something smart to impress at the office?

With that in mind, you can start making style choices that complement the jacket you’ve chosen. For example, you might pair a biker jacket with dark, distressed denim, a blank shirt, and either high tops or some classic Doc Martens to create a grunge look.

On the other end of the spectrum, you can use a sportier leather jacket to add a little bit of style to your regular business casual. Just do a basic white shirt and tie, some grey slacks, then throw the jacket on top. Get a matching pair of Oxfords to complete a simple but sophisticated look.

Those are just some basic suggestions, but your imagination is really the only limitation here. Just remember to make choices that complement the statement your jacket makes, rather than distract from it.

A Style Essential That’s Not Going Anywhere

Leather jackets as we would recognize them first popped up around the turn of the last century. In that time they have cemented their place as a cornerstone piece in wardrobes around the world. As such, learning how to wear a leather jacket with style and tact is mandatory.

Fortunately, there is a look for practically everyone. From barroom rebel to boardroom smart, the right leather jacket can integrate itself into any environment while setting you apart from the crowd.

And in order to make sure that you stay on the cutting edge, always remember to keep up with 360 for all the latest on style, culture, and living on the edge.

Great Fall Fashion Tips for Standing out From the Crowd This Autumn

If you are trying to stand out this autumn these fashion tips are sure to help you stay in style this season.

Over a quarter of people say that fall is their favorite season.

If you’re one of those people, you’re in luck as we’re now officially in fall. This means your skimpy sundress days are behind you and instead the winter clothing will soon be coming out. 

But, in-between times, fall provides you with the chance to get creative and fashionable. 

Who doesn’t love a sunny yet chilly day providing you with the opportunity to wear a dress, boots, and a leather jacket?

If you are trying to stand out this autumn season these fall fashion tips are sure to help you stay in style this season.

Choose Autumnal Colors 

Let everyone know it’s fall by bringing out your pieces in autumnal colors. Burnt oranges, mustard yellows, dark greens all work well for this time of year.

If you’re someone who likes to keep their wardrobe minimal, choosing these colors is a great way to develop your fall capsule wardrobe.

However, if you want to break from convention, there’s nothing stopping you from mixing it up and throwing in some pastel shades or neon yellows!

Invest in High-Quality  

At all times of the year, it’s worth investing in pieces which are of high-quality and will last a lifetime. 

You’ll stand out from the crowd if you’re wearing something which looks well made. This doesn’t necessarily mean it has to be extremely expensive.

In a world of fast fashion, it may be impossible to find cheap high-quality products. But, look in second-hand stores and online. 

To check the quality of a piece, look at the seam, the pockets, check the material and read reviews of the brand online before spending money.

Pick the Right Boot

A boot is your best friend during fall. It can be a beautiful statement piece to complete your outfit all the while keeping your feet dry! 

Autumn showers are a fact of life, but this doesn’t mean you have to look bedraggled after getting caught in the rain!

Make sure you choose a shoe which is water-resistant. This fall, animal print boots are back in fashion. Why not consider a higher boot and pair this with a dress?

Where’s Your Statement Coat?

Another essential for fall is a statement coat. Choose something which works with the rest of your wardrobe. 

A fall colored coat may be in a camel or dark red. There are many different options which work well.  

As fall turns into winter, you’ll need to switch your coat from one of elegance to one of comfort. So, make the most of these drier days to enjoy a chic outfit!

Pull Out a Blazer

A blazer is a classic look for the fall. You can pair it with jeans for a dressed-down look or with a matching skirt for a smart business outfit. 

Your blazer should be tailored if you want to stand out from the crowd. Having a jacket which fits will look better and make any outfit look more expensive.

Add an extra little element to your blazer by sewing on elbow patches. This look is interesting and cool. Not sure how to do this? Learn how to sew a patch, here.

Black Turtlenecks Are Back

The black turtleneck has made a comeback! No longer will you have to sit at your desk with a chilly neck as this item will keep you warm. 

You may choose a variety of different colored turtlenecks which can be matched to a range of different outfits. 

Pair a black turtleneck with tweed trousers and a chic winter coat for the ultimate fall wardrobe look! 

Monochrome Is Chic

Are you looking for a simple outfit you can pull on in the morning that still looks chic? Monochrome is the answer. 

Why not wear a white turtleneck with beige trousers? Or, how about wearing a black jumper with black trousers?

In order to look great while wearing monochrome, try wearing a lighter hue on top. This is flattering for most people. 

When you’ve put your monochrome look together, pair it with your fall boots, and you’re ready to go! 

A Scarf Is a Staple

It’s getting dark earlier and the temperature is dropping. You may be wearing the cutest outfit, but it certainly won’t look sophisticated if you’re shivering!

Pair your coat with a scarf. Choose something which works with the rest of your wardrobe. 

Before you go out and spend money, why not look at one of the many scarves you likely already own?

If you have something in a plain color, this should work well. Stick with dark colors, such as black, which work with everything! Remember, the big, chunky scarf is still very much in fashion.

Match your scarf to your gloves. Choose a color which works and will keep you looking classy as you roll up in your coordinated outfits.

Accessorize, Accessorize, Accessorize

Tie your entire wardrobe together with the right accessories. This could be a simple necklace, a tasteful pair of earrings, or something bolder and out there. 

You can choose. But, consider the implication of buying new jewelry. Why not buy pieces which are fair trade and doing some good for the world?

Nowadays, there are hundreds of brands which are doing right by the planet! You may consider checking Etsy to see homemade wares too.

Fall Fashion Tips Are Countless!

If you’re trying to build your wardrobe, don’t simply rush out and buy hundreds of fall fashion items. That’s one of the most important fall fashion tips!

You should be building your wardrobe slowly but surely over time to ensure that every piece will stand the test of time. Don’t be afraid to take something back to the shop if it’s simply not right for you!

Charles Tyrwhitt Business Casual Summer Collection

Charles Tyrwhitt Introduces New 2019 Business Casual Summer Collection

Premium Cotton, Linen and Eco-Friendly Lyocell Products Make it Easy for Men to Dress Well

Charles Tyrwhitt, a British menswear brand, today unveiled its 2019 Summer Collection with new business casual wardrobe essentials. Offering a range of products including shirts, suits, jackets, blazers, pants, shoes and accessories, Charles Tyrwhitt produces premium and affordable menswear with a touch of British style.

Now available in US retail stores and on CTShirts.com, Charles Tyrwhitt’s 2019 Summer Collection provides light and comfortable options that are both practical for warm weather and up to date with the latest in business style trends. The collection’s three core fabrics – Tyrwhitt Cool Cotton, wrinkle-resistant Linen, and eco-friendly Lyocell – provide comfort and flexibility in summer weather and feature a variety of products, including button-down shirts, jackets, pants and polos.

“Over the last 12 months, we’ve seen a steady increase in men embracing modern business casual as more organizations relax the traditional dress code, so this became a key focus for our 2019 Summer Collection,” said Spencer Riley, Head of Product Design for Charles Tyrwhitt. “Whether it’s the ‘Made in the Sun’ Italian Linen jacket, the breathable Tyrwhitt Cool shirts or the Lyocell performance pants, this collection is equally at home in the boardroom and at a rooftop bar, making it easy for men to dress well and keep cool.”

Tyrwhitt Cool shirts are made with new, innovative 100% cotton fabric specifically treated to wick away moisture for a cool, dry and comfortable feeling:

Soft-Washed Non-Iron Tyrwhitt Cool Shirt – This quick drying, lightweight and soft-to-the-touch shirt has Charles Tyrwhitt’s signature non-iron finish. In 100% cotton poplin fabric, the shirt is smooth and exceptionally breathable. Soft-washed for a relaxed, casual feel, it is available in both long and short sleeves. ($69.00)

Aircool Polo Shirt – A classic polo shirt with fabric-finishing technology to draw away moisture, it is knitted to a clean jacquard texture weave with natural stretch. Charles Tyrwhitt offers three vibrant summer colors with an updated collar for a clean aesthetic. ($55.00)

Charles Tyrwhitt linen products are soft and lightweight, while also allowing air flow to the body:

Italian Linen Jacket – This jacket is made from 100% linen, woven in Italy at solar-energy powered mill Nova Fields and tailored to a soft construction. Designed to look sharp with a relaxed fit, it is lightweight and breathable with its natural shoulder line and canvas. Available in Charles Tyrwhitt slim fit, the jacket comes in mid blue and olive. ($399.00)

Easy-Care Linen Pants – These pants have the cool, breezy benefits of linen with the added convenience of Charles Tyrwhitt’s easy-care finish – they are durable, easy to iron and have enhanced wrinkle recovery to maintain a clean and crease-free look. With a slim fit leg and pre-washed fabric for a soft feel and added comfort, these pants are permeable and highly absorbent, which allows moisture to evaporate quickly, providing a cool, airy feel. ($89.00)

The Business Casual Non-Iron Cotton Linen Shirt – Made from two of the most breathable fabrics – 76% cotton and 24% linen – these shirts are lightweight and woven specially to create natural stretch for perfect fit, comfort and movement. With a linen feel, the non-iron finish prevents wrinkles and is ready to wear after washing and hanging for a hassle-free morning routine. Styled with no front pocket and a softer collar lining, it is available in slim and extra slim fit and comes in white, blue, blue stripe and red stripe.($69.00)

New to the Charles Tyrwhitt collection, Lyocell is an eco-friendly fiber produced from wood pulp harvested from sustainably managed forest.

Natural Performance Pants – Made from a blend of cotton, lyocell and elastane for stretch, comfort and temperature regulation, the Natural Performance Pants are a business causal must-have. These pants are soft, durable and cut to a slimmer, more tapered fit for a refined, contemporary shape. A curved stretch waistband provides added comfort and ease of movement during wear, making them our most comfortable pants to date. ($119.00)

Tencel Linen Casual Shirt – Perfect for the summer months, these shirts are crafted from 100% natural fibers for breathability and a soft feel. The combination of Tencel and linen creates a casual shirt with a marvelous drape for both a sophisticated appearance and comfort. It is made up of 53% Tencel and 47% linen, making it less prone to creasing than pure linen or a cotton-linen blend. ($69.00)

Charles Tyrwhitt’s 2019 Summer Collection, full of quality menswear items at affordable prices and a hint of British charm, is available today. Imagery can be found here.
