Hola, Fashionistas/os! I hope that everyone is off to a great start this quarter. My fashion story this week happened by coincidence. I was on my way to my very first class of the New Year and there he was! I spotted him bright and early looking very classy and impressionable in a casual suit. It is often said that your first impression is your last one, so why not make it a memorable one boys?
The power of a suit can be traced back through centuries. From the high-class financial man that you’ll find on Wall St. to Giorgio Armani’s spring/summer 2013 men’s collection, suits are a must-have item for every Fashionisto. Start your year off right with this Ralph Lauren Black Label suit. Suits don’t have to be an uptight ensemble in your closet — spice it up with a splash of color from a tie or pocket square. But if you’re still not ready for the full-on suit just quite yet Fashionistos, try mixing it up with an Armani Collezioni sport coat. Sport coats are a great way to dress up your outfit without over doing it. You can find them in various styles, colors, fabrics and patterns. They match well with a timeless khaki trouser or a nice sharp jean. Try finishing it off with a striking pair of oxfords.
If you are a Fashionisto of serious business then start dressing like it. There’s nothing more attractive than a confident man in a sharp suit. Set your best foot forward this year with an ensemble you are sure to wear for years to come.
Hint: When shopping this look, it is important to ensure that you know your correct sizing. Go to the men’s section in a local department store and have an associate measure you. Once you know your fit, it’s easy to find a suit that will suit your taste. Try mixing a light colored sports coat with a dark pair of jeans. Pair this with a deep tan colored shoe and forget whoever said, “A good suit is hard to find.”
