|During the 40's-50's Mix and Match was a thing. IT's BACK!|
Like most men, I love a full suit, but there is something to be said about a mix-and-match fashion situation. I feel like this day and age the fear of juxtaposition is overwhelming to gentlemen, but there is nothing to be afraid of, here, allow me to help.
There are several ways of incorporating your tweed jacket and your beige slacks, add a colour in-between and BAM, a whole new outfit and perfect for those casual Fridays at the office.
Another fun way to do a mix-match outfit is to incorporate your denim. Grab a great coloured jacket that you haven't worn in a while, pair it with a dark pant and add a casual sneaker for a relaxed weekend look.
As many of you know, double breasted is a trend that is popping up everywhere. The runway has been overwhelmed with designers incorporating the 1920's to the 21st century man’s wardrobe. Try a simple two or six button jacket and add a heavy chino, mole hair pant, or trouser. Put on a neck or bowtie to dress up the ensemble or remove all-together.
Don't feel overwhelmed by layers, embrace them and why not go a little nuts this year? I mean, tis the season right?
