Marimacho Spring/Summer 2014

Here's a closer look at the fashion -- and the gorgeous styling -- on the Marimacho Spring/Summer 2014 runway.

Slim Suit
A striking, polished button-down offers a beautiful contrast to a bright coral suit. (Shoes optional.)
A Study in Asymmetry
A slim-fitting suit in a rich blue goes best with a bold streak of white. And perfect brows, obviously.
Spring Silhouette
It's all about balancing proportions: An impeccably-tailored jacket paired with slouchy pants offers a silhouette that works at the office or out at night. (And, yeah, the tattoo is completely mandatory.)
Your Summer Uniform
These pants will never leave your body. They're stylish, socially-acceptable daytime pajamas. Dress 'em up, dress 'em down, pair 'em with a sheer tank, if you want to.
Summer Suit
Well-tailored separates (and a pocket square) will form the backbone of your spring and summer wardrobe. And don't be afraid of going monochrome -- it's an easy way to look polished without being fussy.
Embrace Color
Coral and powder blue were clearly meant to be friends.
Casual Cool
Pair a solid with a print or bold stripes in the same color family and, voila, you look awesome.
Gimme Stripes
I'm going to dream about this jacket.
Beauty 101
A closer look at the beauty styling at Marimacho's show -- models rocked asymmetrical cuts with bold, white streaks and clean, luminous skin.
Oh yeah...
Did we mention "Orange is the New Black" star Lea DeLaria was in attendance? And that she looked impeccable? And that we sorta kinda hyperventilated upon seeing her there?

Young Black Men in 'Suits and Ties' Want You to Know They're Not 'Thugs'

Donning slacks, shiny shoes, collard shirts and ties, the students from the African-American clubs at Champaign Central and Centennial High Schools in Illinois appear in a YouTube video looking like they're ready for their GQ Magazine close-up to the sounds of Justin Timberlake's song, "Suit and Tie." By presenting themselves in a much more 'put together' manner than your average young person, their intention with the video was to counter the "negative images of young African-American males in the media," according to their YouTube channel .
