Dapper dressing doesn’t necessarily mean that you wear a three-piece suit. Wearing the right items and combining classic accessories is key.
These marble stairs, big windows and interesting art posters are all part of the AMFI. Come February I’ll be a undergraduate student doing Independent Fashion Magazines. I’ve been here before though. I wore a colourful ensemble of a bright blue suit, a crisp shirt, dress shoes and a striped bow tie when I applied to the AMFI two years ago. Now that my style has evolved in something more classic/casual, I wanted to bring some of those dapper details back in this outfit. And now that I have my Daniel Wellington watch, it certainly created a balanced between the two styles.
I think every man should have at least one blazer. Because suits become less common in more businesses, you could look dressed wearing a blazer without being too formal. You can wear it over a T-shirt, white shirt or a jumper with jeans and still look representative. Pair it with formal shoes like oxfords or loafers, even though the latter might be a bit cold this time of year. Nonetheless, I’m a fan of these shoes throughout the year. Because I think loafers do for men, what heels can do for women. As a woman, you could wear a simple black leather jacket, white blouse, ripped jeans and walk in elegant heels and you immediately have an upgraded look. The same counts for men, when having loafers on their feet.
And than the watch. My Bristol is an upgrade to every outfit. The timepiece is subtle, but if you pay attention to it, you see the blue dials on the watch plate as a modern detail to the classic design. No wonder this model is called the Dapper.
Also, don’t forget you can still use my promocode ‘MRLUNETTES‘ when purchasing an item yourself on danielwellington.com. It will give you 15% off your order and the code is valid until the 31st of December.
Have a great weekend, guys!
