full-lengthThe first Fancy Friday of the year, and I was determined to get it off with a bang.

I’ve been doing a little bit of shopping over the break and wanted to bust out some new threads (that sounded very gangsta, which clearly I’m not) .

When attempting to go mix and match 3 colours, you wanna try keep them all on the same side of the colour wheel so that they compliment one another or feel visually pleasing from our understanding of colour. In this case the blues and reds with some rich browns all came together nicely. The white shirt is a great way to just bring it all together as it is completely neutral.

medium-shotThe retro looking brown jacket with contrast colour was brought back in the belt and shoes, while the burgundy tie was accentuated with the multi coloured pocket square (which helped pick up on different parts of the outfit all round) I then used the blue lapel flower to compliment the pants and voila, I thought it came together quite nicely. Here are the details.
