The month of May sees many seniors in college walk the walk and finally graduate. With this comes a type of celebration, usually in the form of a party or get together to honor the newest alumnae and celebrate their achievements. Party season calls for a particular dress code — one that is elegant, clean cut and appropriate for the occasion. But just how does one go about planning an outfit for a graduation get together?
This Fashionisto in particular is wearing a very typical and safe go-to outfit. Comfortable khakis, a navy blazer and a blue button-down shirt all blend well to create this classic, all-American trend. These khakis are an age old must-have in any man’s wardrobe and the navy blazer is a classic, elegant choice. The gold buttons and fine stitching never go out of style and a bespoke suit cut can broaden any man’s shoulders. But if there’s one thing that this Fashionisto has done to set himself a part, it is a subtle risk that separates himself from the rest.
Mixing metals is a truly simple way to add edge and style to one’s outfit. The detail seen on the sleeve’s buttons contrasts greatly to the heavy silver seen in this Fashionisto’s cool watch. This trick is a great way to ensure one is more than appropriately dressed for a graduation gala or a dinner with the family.
Southern sweethearts and city dwellers alike can always be found rocking this combination to ensure they are not too casual, not too formal, always comfortable and, most importantly, well dressed.
