Old school and borderline classic, this look dances on the funky edge of hipsterdome. Match it with an equally interesting drink for maximum appeal!
It’s all here: The bow tie, the jacket, the lace ups. So, why isn’t this look preppy-proper? What makes it so easy going and relaxed, ideal for a Wednesday night out about town, right after work?
TAKE IT TO THE MAX
·Instead of looking like a big square dominating the upper part of your body, the blazer is perfectly fit on the torso and its narrow shoulders make it look much more casual, as they let the hands move around freely to order one more drink.
·The bow tie by itself could mean serious business. But this baby has the support of a knitted belt, the instant classic that managed to get you through all last year and is now dancing its way into the new season, to lighten things up.
·The color combo: Gray with baby blue, brown and a funky dark blue check pattern. You wouldn’t have guessed they all look so great together, am I right? But seeing them here makes all the sense in the world. So, never be afraid of combinations unless you try them. Practice, practice, practice…
·The shoes look proper but they are soft and comfortable, not stiff and uptight. And if you are not sure about their intentions yet, just check out the white stitching!
It has been our obsession since the beginning of fall. What’s best for relaxing after the office than a cool aperitivo? Italians know how to do it the right way but DiplomaticoReservaExclusiva takes it to a new, mature state of mind.
