Happy New month folks! First of all, (I have always wanted to say that here¯\_(ツ)_/¯) this blazer is not brown, nor is it maroon or orange. It is called burnt orange, thanks to www.platinum-queen.com,(who enlightened me on the name of this color). I think I finally agree that we guys are color blind- to me this blazer was brown, but not anymore.
Ok, now that is done with, let’s jump onto the post. Shall we?
Most of us often get comfortable once we discover our personal style. Of course as human beings, our comfort zones are where we feel at home but once in a while it is a good idea to try something different. We all have one or two articles of clothing that often get heads turning each time we wear them- that’s where those bold clothes come in. This blazer is that one for me. It sure does take guts to throw this on- It has taken 3 years for me to even post it here.
The wide lapels on this jacket are somewhat retro-inspired. The patch pockets give it an interesting casual feel that makes it ideal for composing casual smart outfits. I paired it with tan chinos and vintage tassel loafers which add on to the overall vintage aesthetic.
From previous posts, it is obvious that I fancy muted colors like grey, black and blue but changing that up a bit for this post was a good idea. If at all you want to grow your personal style further, try something different and unlike you. Whether it is trying out new color palettes or playing around with proportions like lapel sizes, or maybe just a funky pocket square. It will help you discover something new and you will keep coming up with fresh ideas that you can incorporate into your daily outfits and overall style. Try it out when you can, it will give your wardrobe a burst of new energy and will absolutely help you revamp your style slowly, but surely.
