Borrow It From The Boys - Menswear Inspired Outfit
The only thing I knew today was that I wanted to tie everything I was wearing. Tie my shirt, tie my pants, tie my shoes, and so on. I also knew I wanted to wear a button down without looking like I was going to a meeting so, naturally, I raided Alex's closet for some hidden gems.
Lucky for me I found a Zegna shirt he never wears. That was my first AHA! moment of the day. It was silky, it was blue, it was huge and it had a pocket resemblant of my grandpa's pajamas. I clearly had a winner in my hands.
I put it on, closed two buttons and decided to tie it around my waist à la Carmen Miranda. "Yes!" I thought, "now on to the pants". The most obvious pairing were these H&M black tie-front pants I got literally years ago. They would add the drama and casual laissez-faire I needed to bring the button down from business meeting or Daisy Duke to cool Bon Vivantness. Goal achieved.
Lastly, I added some calypso inspired earrings, also from H&M, because obviously I had to throw in some partaaay to my outfit. So there you have it, the 3 step process behind this menswear inspired OOTD. Now check it out for yourself and vote on my imaginary poll: Is this Peanut Butter and Jelly good? or perhaps more of a Strawberry Cupcake with Mustard bad?
Let me know what you think of this outfit in the comment section below. I love to hear from you!
