Let the blazer do the talking
As the headline indicates, today will be all about the blazer which I think came through for me in a big way. The classic two button jacket with patch pockets and soft shoulders is something that every gent needs in their wardrobe. It’s versatility alone should be enough reason to get one, as you can dress it up or dress it down, whatever the purpose is, you can count on it. The color of your blazer is also a key element for how it’s going to be styled, when you choose the color for your blazer, it’s always important to have the rest of the outfit in mind. My blazer today is white and I paired it with a very heavily colored shirt, because I love the contrast between the white and the purple. The rest of the outfit was kept in navy tones. I consider navy my safe card, it’s extremely hard to get wrong, and if the rest of the outfit is eye-popping, navy is one of the best colors to use, because it compliments so many colors without really stealing the spotlight. Black also does that but I’ve found that I’m actually pretty sparse with my use of black, so navy remains my safe option.
This is also another great example of mix and match, something I love to do because of the challenge of getting it right, especially if you like me, have to inject some color in the outfit and then try and mix and match it without turning out as bag of skittles. Hopefully there will be more of these outfits, but I’m not sure because in Australia it’s about to be summer and I’ve been told that their summers are relentless, so when I get down there all the outfit will probably just be shorts and tank tops ha ha!
Have a good one guys,
Stay in the loop
