My MANy Bags Trendspotting #144


Below: Love this guy's outfit. Something formal turned relaxed and casual, with a touch of tough luxe...


Opposing Styles: Tuxedo Jacket + Cargo Pant

I love this guy's take on casual dressing. Yes, I am aware he is wearing a smart and sharp peaked shouldered (reminds me of Balmain!) tuxedo blazer (notice the satin contrast lapel and fabric covered buttons), but he tones it down with some scruffiness of his wrinked and rolled cargo pants. He is looking so smart without appearing too restrained. Thumbs up for his clever mix of formal and casual, tight (fitted blazer) vs loose (cargo pants).

I like opposing styles combined into an outfit. Often than not, when done well, the result is an inspiration, with a dash of the unexpected and naturally eye catching.

I am inspired by this Milanese guy. I love his look. Perhaps he could have done away with his maroon coloured tote bag. Carrying a leather tote from Céline would have done his look an even greater boost in appeal.

Love!

So glad that you post this!! I just bought myself a women's jacket from Balmain and I've pondering how pull off the jacket without looking feminine and this helps! I just can't resist the great deal ... and the look of it - -!
