Summer Looks: Summer Soiree
Posted on July 14 2016
Summer is soiree season. There are times when the swim suit must be traded in for the sport coat; in other words, a certain level of formality is called for. Depending on the type of event and provided the event is not too formal, you can get adventurous with what you wear.
Whether it be a soiree or a wedding the statement jacket can be a great option. The key to pulling off the look is to tone down everything around the jacket. For example, pair the dragon printed jacket above with a white linen shirt and tan trousers. However, if you are not of the adventurous sort or want to keep things more conservative, swap out the printed jacket for a solid navy blazer. Either way, frame the look with a pair of navy suede Shipleys. The navy of the shoes picks up the navy of the jacket, this does a good job connecting various elements of the ensemble. Add to the look with a pair of aviators and a watch. But don’t show up empty handed, no host ever complained when a guest brought a bottle.
