pic-3Guys, work and life has been crazy and I’ve been struggling to find the time to get some blogging done, so massive apologies

Either way, I’m back and wanted to share a Fancy Friday outfit from a couple of weeks ago, I loved how the very contrasting patterns and colours all came together on this guy. As always, pattern mixing is all about creating enough contrast within the pattern to make it work together.

Lets take a closer look shall we

I also wanted to let the colours of the tie feel more spread out so that it doesn’t become such a focus, so the green tie clip and pink lapel flower help a very bold tie become a little more tame.

So the blazer I bought on sale at Topman, but here is a non floral option

Non iron shirt by Gap

Clarence street tie from Loft Trading (unfortunately now sold out)

Lapel button by Chanman

Tie clip from the tie bar

Lived in skinny chinos by Gap

Belt by Paul Smith – Get similar

Shoes by Zara – Get similar

Okay. Stay Fancy.
