Do the dandy look in a new, refreshing way, and get instant fashion likes.
What is a dandy if not an immaculately dressed gentleman, someone who pays attention to details and respects the quality of fabric, choosing only to be surrounded by beauty and perfect taste? Playing with the trends of the season, the team here at IIWT decided to create a new dandy look, using some of this season’s top choices!
· Let’s start with the shoes, for a change. These Givenchy ankle boots defy the round-tip trend of the season and path their way into a classic, Beatles inspired mode, perfect-and necessary for any dandy look. Get them in black and keep them forever.
· Play with patterns and pick a printed cotton shirt that will create a surprising contradiction to the checked blazer. A contradiction that is, however, sooo sweet.
· Speaking of the blazer, why go for a plain colored one when you can play check with this one? Your wardrobe is going to love having this baby around; all your simple trousers will want to hang out with it.
· No matter what you do with your prints and plaids, always remember that you need a dominating color to create the base for any outfit. The blood-red jumper we have chosen for this post finds itself in the blazer’s details, as well, offering reassurance and some warm, eye candy.
· A dandy always needs to protect his eyes the right way. Wearing a top pair of sunglasses tells a lot about you: You are someone who obviously respects his skin, you go out in the sun a lot and you are always prepared for surprises.
SWATCH HAS A WIDE COLLECTION OF TIMEPIECES THAT SPARK UP A TOUCH OF MUCH NEEDED COLOR, LIKE THIS RECOLETA WATCH THAT BRINGS SOME BLUE INTO THE PICTURE!
