Sip on a tiki punch cocktail by Diplomatico Rum while paying a twisted, contemporary tribute to the British colonial style.
Stripes, soft pale colors, quirky combinations and unexpected coolness. All checked on our style list, as we put together this outfit that perfectly matches our favorite rum punch by Diplomatico. What you have to know for sure is that, in order to successfully pay tribute to the colonial gents, you need to know the rules and then learn how to break them.
·Stripe out: Stripes are the single most important element of any Brit that respects his forefathers who sailed the seas to discover and conquer. We take them and play with them by matching wide ones with narrow ones, vertical with horizontal, never in the same order or color. Weird, you think? Just look at how good it turned out…
AGAINST ALL EXPECTATIONS, A GREAT QUALITY WATCH LIKE THIS OMEGA PIECE CAN BE AS LIGHTHEARTED AS YOU WISH!
·Dare to wear: Pale colors usually come in couples, when creating a colonial outfit. Mint green with baby pink, light blue with soft yellow, the duets are limitless. We took our favorite ones and threw them all together, concentrating on the “boyish” blues and greens. Avoiding the safety net provided by canvas or tan leather shoes, we went ahead and let the color game go to our shoes. Nice one, huh?
