There’s just something swagalicious about a stylish man. I mean what’s not to like about a man who takes pride in how he looks. It’s eye catching to see a guy who is fashion forward and not afraid to show it. So for today’s look I’m totally borrowing a little style inspo from the boys, again.
Typically when I’m putting a look together, I start with one item I want to wear, then build the rest of the look from that item. What inspired this look and what happens to be the centerpiece is the necktie. It just pulls the whole ensemble together.
About four years ago I thrifted this blue blazer and it may or may not be too small. Either way I’m going to continue to wear it until I burst out of it like I’m the incredible hulk. Finding such a blazer with the perfect cut for me ain’t easy (on account that I have short arms). I’m also digging the vintage vibes this blazer gives off.
In keeping with the theme of the look, I paired this tri-colored striped tie with a light blue/white striped button down shirt. Wanting to maintain the lady factor to this look, I decided on a pair of fitted distressed jeans (I could have also gone with a solid or printed pair of trousers) to show off my slim-thick curves and thangs.
To complete the look, after playing around with what shoes to wear I ended up going with these burgundy oxfords I scored many moons ago. And last but not least, I finally got a chance to wear this vintage messenger bag (although the only thing in it for this pic was my phone and mine and Kaylin’s keys – Ha).
Now go forth and dress amazingly!!!
