A pair of (the right) shoes can create the theme for your whole outfit!
All the boys and girls here at IIWT have a thing with two-tone shoes, also called saddle or spectator shoes. They became popular in the 1920’s and 30’s and, in our minds, they are connected to the swinging youth and the booming jazz scene or the era. Watching the movie “The talented Mr Ripley” _probably for the tenth time already_ justified, in our heads, the excellent way one can go about wearing them in the summer. Jude Law’s “Dickie” dances around the summer streets of Rome with loose pants, a light polo shirt and his impeccable style. Straw hat, optional.
THE SEAMASTER PLANET OCEAN 600 M BY OMEGA WILL BRING THE SOUND OF THE CALMING WAVES INTO YOUR LOOK IN NO TIME!
·Choose a smart color that says “summer” without yelling “holidays”. This soft, bluish gray is just perfect.
·Your pants need to be wide and comfortable enough to dance in. Roll’ em up and let some ankle show.
·Your shirt has to be a little closer to the body, so pick a slim fit polo. It’s okay if it is one size bigger, just as long as you got the shoulder lining right.
·Sleeked back hair, an excellent watch and a zen disposition shall do the trick of completing the look.
·As for your shoes? Well, these suede and canvas babies got all it takes to bring the roaring twenties vibe into the summer, without loosing their freshness.
