There’s something about always looking put together that draws attention. Looking “put together” doesn’t just take place in one style or way of dressing; it’s a completed look with thought, purpose, and owning every aspect of that. Selling a look depends on attitude, and the cohesion of demeanor and design. This street style look captivates just that. Let’s get the breakdown.
1) Suited up fo’sho!! This rich bleu suit is the perfect Spring/Summer suit color. It’s not as dismal as a navy and not even close to dreary blacks or grays. It’s fabric almost has a bit of sheen to it as well– and no I’m not talking about your Uncle Benny’s polyester suit sheen either. The thinner composite fabric gives the suit a little light-bending texture variant that allows the color to practically gleam. This choice is color is great for practically any skin-tone as well.
2) Playing with color variants can either go really well, or really bad, REALLY fast. The addition of a darker shaded print top in this case went really well. Adding in a darker and more gray based blue tone is a subtle separation from the entire suit. The print is gives the look some personality as well. Because we’re getting so much life from the shirt, there really isn’t a need for a tie.
3) We all know just how much I love color off-sets, and stand out pops. The white pocket-square bring about a nice distraction from all of the blue we see in the suit and shirt. Tying in the white print in the shirt, the pocket square draws they eye in a different directions. Once that happens, your admirers can take a step back to really get a full look at you. I mean think about it, from the print accented shirt, to the stand out pocket square then down to the shoes, which brings me to my next point.
4) Here’s where most of the personality for this look comes into play. Sneakers paired with a suit sort of says, “Chill out, it’s not that serious”. Sneakers and suit pairings are something that is appropriate for the office, and still cool enough for everyday making this look extremely versatile and well planned. (There goes that whole put together thing I was talking about). The hightop all white, leather Chuck our street stylist has on pickup the other two white pops we get in the torso region for a well balanced color pop. Now keep in mind that too many color pops turn into color explosions. When featuring an accent color in an outfit you have to remember that you want to color to compliment the over all look, not consume it.
Well done, @chrisfindley
