The Suit and Shorts
A few years back in 2014 Pharrell Williams wore a suit and short combination to the 86th annual Academy Awards. He also rocked a suit and short combination a few more times before and after 2014. Pharrell Williams, the style icon is always known for rocking eye-catching style statements, he is an inspiration to millions of people in regards to fashion, music or different causes that are going on around the world. One thing I take away from Pharrell Williams is his confidence, something similar to Kanye West confidence. You won’t be able to rock half the things Pharrell wears without that keyword CONFIDENCE.
I drew inspirations from the classy in Dior and military in Hvrminn. Both brands represent different aesthetics in men’s fashion. Dior, of course, is well-respected with everything they do; very classy, elegant, chic, contemporary and beautiful. While Hvrminn draws inspiration from the military and the jazz age of men’s fashion.
I paired my two-button double-breasted jacket with a striped button down and black tie. I wanted to be a little more creative than wearing a solid white shirt. I love the peak lapels on the double-breasted jacket, that is one of those military inspired details that I really enjoyed about Hvrminn. The Commuter shorts came from Kit and Ace. I’m not one for long shorts that pass the knee. A few things that stood out to me about the Commuter shorts from Kit and Ace was the wrinkle resistant fabric, stain resistant finish and the tailored aesthetic that made the shorts versatile for either a bike ride or boardroom meeting. The buttons added extra details to the overall look. Back in 2015 Dior came out with a LookBook where they incorporated buttons to the clothing, which really caught my attention. I’d recommend this look if you’ll be attending a fashion show, traveling to a fashionable city, hanging out with friends, or a fashionable event.
Remember you wear the clothes, don’t let the clothes wear you.
