Stockholm just passed the highest measured temperature record today and some may wonder what you are able to wear in this heat. You can either wear a suit or jacket in a high twisted wool for maximum breath ability, or as for today’s inspiration, a jacket made in seersucker cotton. This will not only keep your cool in this weather, but it will be a just about right in terms of casualness. Combine it with a pair of light colored trousers, loafers and some classic sunglasses for the perfect summer look.
I know that stating that green is the new black is a bit of cliche, but green is such an underestimated color. By now, most of my readers probably know that I often wear blue, grey and brown, but green colored accessories have become a favorite in my wardrobe. It it just a matter of time before I start to wear this color for sport coats and suits. Who knows, maybe a forest green flannel suit will be next on my list. So for today, I choose to wore green accessories and wanted to inspire you to do the same.
Today I’m back with new posts on the blog after some well deserved vacation. We start off straight away with a collage inspired by my own outfit that I wore today. The outfit consists of garments in different shades of brown, a color that I nearly wear as often as blue nowadays. As always, leave a comment if you like it or have any questions regarding style.
The Solaro fabric is not a common sight today and are only available at a few selected stores in the world and through bespoke tailors. The weaving of the fabric mixes two colored threads that creates a shiny effect to it which reflects the light. This makes the Solaro fabric the perfect companion for the summer season and something that stands out from the crowd.
A color that has caught my attention lately is tobacco, a color that reminds of the color of a cigar. What makes this color different is that it not too light, nor too dark as the chocolate brown may be sometimes. Today I wanted to show you how good the tobacco color can look and I choose to combine it with shades of blue. Due to the nature of the tobacco color, you can easily change the blue accessories to brown or even forest green and still look stylish.
It is Monday and we are back with our weekly collage. Today we will focus on a color that may not be most common one, but still can be mixed and matched with a lot of colors. Burgundy is a perfect way to include some color in your daily outfit, without making it too heavy for the eye. Here is my take on how I would combine the color burgundy for this spring, how would you wear it?
Monochrome inspired outfits have been a favorite lately, and today we will take a look how to combine different shades of grey. Grey is probably the easiest color to create monochrome outfits with, and will create an elegant and subtle look. Try to use at least three different shades of grey, as this will create a deeper and more interesting color palette.
Grey, a color that never will go out of fashion. What make the grey such a good choice of color is that it can more than less be match with almost every color you can think of. Grey is best friend with different shades of blue, brown and green. Today we look at one of my favorite combinations with the grey suit, paired with a forest green tie and white crisp shirt.
We have been talking a lot about the winter sale during the last week. I hope that you learned a thing or two, and at the same time found something interesting to buy in my posts. Today I would like to post an example how you can put an outfit together even that the winter sale is in its final stage.
We cannot deny it anymore, the winter is here to stay. To be able to survive the winter you will need a good overcoat, beanie and scarf. We have already talked about my favorite overcoats and beanies and I think it is high time that we take a look at my favorites scarves.
A scarf can be a real savior when it is chilly outside, especially with a combination of the lower temperature and a windy day. What many do not think about is that you can control your temperature easily depending on which knot you are using for your scarf. A walk in city, walking in and out of stores will probably need a different knot compared to if you are taking a long walk in the country side. Other important details to think about when choosing a scarf are the length, choice of fabric and color. A longer scarf will give you the option to be able to make more advanced knots, something that will impact the isolation as already mentioned but also what kind of look you are after. I like when the scarf have a length around 180 cm, a length that is not too long or too short.
The thickness of the fabric will also make a difference as a lighter fabric will look more elegant, but lack of the isolation that a thicker fabric will offer. For winter I would personally choose a wool or cashmere fabric as these will keep you warm, not irritate your skin and are easy to find in various price ranges. Another fabric that has been seen much more lately is the alpaca, a softer and more luxurious alternative than the merino and sheep wool.
When it comes the choice of colors, I would personally start off with earthy and subtle colors such as navy, grey, brown and camel. These colors are the easiest to match with your other garments in you winter wardrobe such as your coats and trousers. I think it is better to start with these basic colors and instead add colorful scarves afterwards.
I have picked my ten favorites for the winter to help you gentlemen in the jungle of scarves.
