As photos of New York Fashion Week are appearing on just about every fashion blog, it’s clear Fashionistos are opting for the suit and tie look—thanks Justin Timberlake! Rich colored suit pieces have made their mark as closet staples for most fashion entrepreneurs. Sporting oversized T-shirts and pajama bottoms to class are a thing of the past. Menswear has re-made its way from the classic refined man to the everyday style maven, mixing casual with elegance.
Earlier this week I came across this Fashionisto, serving up a serious three-piece suit. Mixing complementary pieces with offbeat accents making this look one of a kind, whilst still paying homage to the Gatsby-esque feel. Establish your look with the right trousers, comparable to these from Express. Alongside a fitted blazer like this one from H&M, keep in mind the look of this ensemble is fusing different pieces—so don’t fret about mismatching your suit. Layer your suit with minimal pieces like this khaki chino vest from JCPenney mingled with a simple tie like this one from J.Crew, or if you prefer something with a bit more character, sample this funky shark print from Vineyard Vines.
Nothing finishes off a three-piece like an eclectic pair of floral combat boots, adding a hipster flare to any ensemble identical to these from Amazon. Conclude your look with a mod pair of flip sunglasses from Hot Topic. Styled properly, this look can follow you from your daily sprint across the quad to a late night coffee date.
Hint: Step out of your comfort zone with bold cuts and colored suit pieces.
