Arriving to the sunshine is the best aspect of being released from our dragged out days of Tuesday work or our lengthy class schedules. We strive to make the best of our Tuesday afternoons by completing a few errands before we get tied up in evening activities. Maybe a casual trip to the jazz club or bar would set a lively tone for the rest of the week? It’s definitely ok to let go of your business for one night on the town, so don’t be afraid to blow off a couple calls to make it in time for the jazz band tunes! It’s not a usual experience, but it sure can be a snazzy way to play in your closet.
This week’s featured Fashionisto is sporting an ensemble that teeters along the lines of contemporary gentleman and old-fashion conservative. He begins by pulling out a pair of Ben Sherman cuffed chinos, which take you back to the mid-19th century. If we take a whirl wind through the times, we’ll stoop down to the leather lace-up dress shoes from Call It Spring. Lace-up dress shoes are a staple item for your closets Fashionistos! These shoes will help you play it cool and casual or sophisticated and dapper for whichever time period you’d like to be in.
Moving up, this Fashionisto dons a slim-fit button-down top. The zig zag and dot patterns run into each other in any and every direction. You can find a similar patterned men’s shirt from Topman USA. The shirt offers a debonair feel but still subtly accents the outfit.
Further up, our Fashionisto portrays his suavity while channeling his hidden rhythm and blues side in his contrasting tweed fedora. To find a look quite similar to this, you can either go for a tweed fedora, which will have folks pushing you right on stage to do a jazz number, or a straw fedora that allows you to embrace your laid back summer evening. Either way, you’ll be the most eye-catching gentleman to waltz in. There’s not much to it, just be snazzy and be jazzy!
HINT: I’m a huge proponent of displaying at least two accessories with my ensemble. My suggestion is simply choose a perfect watch that works for a few dress down moments and a good amount of dress up moments. This Fashionisto went right for the gold Michael Kors watch. I prefer adding a little flavor, mostly if you’re unsure whether to wear gold or silver. You’d take a keen interest in checking out the Michael Kors slim runway watch.
