Suit Up…

Bluefly Mens Suit

 

Purchasing your next suit is always an important investment, you want to pick the right cut, color and fit that can easily transform from ‘boardroom ready’ to ‘client meeting mingling’. Here are our top three tips to getting your suit situation sorted:

 

1. THE FIT – a perfectly tailored suit can make all the difference! Baggy and oversize is out and a more fitted cut is in! Opt for a slimmer style suit and take it to your tailor to perfect the fit. Pay careful attention to your sleeve and pant leg length, no one wants to look like their suit shrunk in the wash!

 

2. THE COLOR & FABRIC – to ensure your suit goes the distance, look at a tone more inline with your shirt colors and accessories. We suggest going for a rich navy or dark charcoal as it’s hard to go wrong when teaming back colors with these! With the colder months lying ahead of us, invest wisely in a wool blend suit. This will cut the chill in winter but also see you through to the warmer months as the fabric can breath. Sometimes it’s worth spending that little bit extra for a suit you can wear year round!

 

3. THE STYLING – get comfortable with dressing up and dressing down your suit! Putting on a shirt and tie is a no brainer so think beyond this! For the winter months have fun with layering colorful cashmere sweaters and sleek puffer jackets! You’ll stay stylish and warm all at the same time! Also, think about additional finishing touches such as pocket squares, leather belts, cuff links,  tie pins and socks! It’s the attention to detail that could make the difference between sealing the deal or not!

Accessorize Accessories

Since I’ve already exploited the notion of accessorizing oneself with copious accessories, I’ve taken a liking to turning my knack for engaging arms, legs, neck, in perpetual exercise via limb party, purse, triple fist bottle o’ wine into accessorizing the very accessories we use to spruce up. Say that sentence ten times fast. No matter how you slice it, chances are it will not in fact begin to make sense. In any case, here’s the small history behind this thought process. It started last month at that Coach Beverly Hills LA event I hosted alongside the Tony Duquette baubles. The collection placed a fairly large emphasis on pins and brooches and it was then that I began to wonder why more designers don’t experiment with pins and brooches? And furthermore, if they won’t do it, why haven’t we taken it upon ourselves to start tapping that genre of jewel again yet? It was at that point that I proceeded to attach a gilded waterbug to my red purse and that’s when the proverbial flood gates opened–cue the above, et voila: accessorizing accessories. It doesn’t stop there though, think how fly an elaborate brooch can be pinned to say, your denim work shirt, or utility blouse.

A bright orange coat can really transform your outfit

For me winter is the best time of year to accessorize!

 

Whether it be one of the millions of scarfs I own to the newest tech geek craze of touch screen gloves. There are endless options to express yourself with accessories throughout these next few dreary months.

 

So don’t let yourself get caught up in the January through March slump, this is the time to be fun, creative, and to express the brightness in you!
