Q: I have a closet full of Ed Hardy shirts. Is it time for me to upgrade?
Wes: I have a short answer, and more of a dialogue-based response. Short answer: Please. Upgrade.
Longer response: People typically see you before they get to know you, so dress the way you want to be treated. Dress for respect if that's what you command. From me to you, if you're old enough to legally drink alcohol, I recommend you deviate from graphic tees completely. However, if you routinely ride a Harley on the strip in Myrtle Beach, SC, don't change a thing.

Q: What do you think of printed denim on women? And how do I wear printed denim? My boyfriend is not a fan but I love the look!
Wes: I think printed denim can be cool. In small doses. You want to avoid becoming "that girl wearing those pants again." You must tread lightly with how you accessorize them, though. Stick to solid-colored pieces on top and under-the-radar shoes. A good rule is to always only wear one statement piece. You don't want too much flash, or you'll look like someone without sense - fashion or otherwise. That said, if you truly master the art of wearing patterns, you can mix and match patterns, but do so in odd numbers. The rule of three isn't just for interior decorating and famous people dying.
