I do love it when a fancy friday outfit all comes together as well as this one. The navy blazer and grey pants is a very classic and corporate look, but I thought I would give it a contemporary twist in my own special way.
There’s a lot of pattern mixing going on here, but it’s all very slight, the kind of slightness that draws a fine line between pattern and texture, and there is a little bit of that happening all over the place.
Firstly, the pants carry a slight plaid check with a very fine blue running though, it’s slight, but you pick it up when paired with the navy blazer (If you don’t yet have a navy blazer PLEASE let that be the next thing you purchase – its the best staple you can own) You will then also notice the slight check in the shirt, it’s also navy, but predominately white so that everything doesn’t become a navy extravaganza up top.
The emerald tie also carries a fine chevron texture, and to make it work I picked a pocket square that carried a hint of that same emerald colour, but that was predominantly white and created a replica of the shirt and tie without being an exact duplicate, the final POP was the red lapel button working perfectly with the pocket square and contrasting the tie nicely, I even managed to sneak in a final detail in the navy bracelet with slight red detail. Here take a closer look.
Final detail, and in complete contrast to everything else, was these brown tasselled loafers (currently my new favourite go with anything shoes), brown and grey and brown and navy go incredibly well together I just made sure to stick to the same colour belt to pull it back together, you’ll even notice a touch of brown in the pocket square.
