Happy new month to you! I have said this before and I will say it again- suits are BORING. But before you kill me for saying that- by suits, I mean matching pants and suit jackets or coats. Suits are a good go-to any other day when you just don’t feel like coming up with something interesting or you’re just too lazy to do so. This is precisely why I am more into spezzato looks- what is often called mix and match. I think this is a great way to play around with colors, tones, fabrics and textures, which allows you to come up with different, fresh creative looks without having to repeat similar looks over and over again.kenyan fashion blogger 1
However, for the rather conservative guy who is still a little skeptical about trying this out, blue and grey is a timeless combination that you can never go wrong with. This is one of those looks your grandpa probably used to pull off but it still looks stylish in our generation. It is the closest safe combo when learning how to mix and match various colors.Kenyan fashion blogger 2
Not only is it easy to pull off, but is as versatile as they come. You can easily wear it with a wide array of colors when it comes to ties and pocket squares.kenyan fashion blogger 3

It is an almost-safe bet that will never let you down. But there lies a danger in getting used to this combination- it can easily get boring. By boring, I mean it can become a “uniform” of sorts, and an easy to get away with look. To deal with this, I suggest you accessorize it with a pop of color or play around with textures. You could settle for a woolen, knit or tartan tie to add that edgy feel to this look or some color when it comes to your pocket square- just to shake things up a little bit.kenyan male fashion blogger kenyan male fashion bloggerYou can also try lapel flowers and pins if you’re into this trend- just don’t over do it.
For the more modern gentleman who finds wide lapels to be a little too extra, you can settle for a blazer with slim lapels and even swap the navy blazer for a grey one and the grey pants for navy ones- just to give this age-old look a modern touch of sorts. kenyan male fashion bloggerskenyan male fashion bloggerkenyan male fashion bloggerkenyan male fashion bloggerkenyan fashion blog
I will be sure post more spezzato looks in upcoming posts so you can get more ideas on how to go about the art of mixing and matching.
Do you think this idea is a great alternative to the same old boring suits? Let me know what you think in the comments section below and share with a friend who could use this idea!
