Drawing On The Drake’s Well

The inspiration for today’s outfit comes from the @drakesdiary AW16 lookbook. The idea is simple - mainly blue monotone with a little pattern from the scarf and a dash of colour from the sweater which contrasts nicely - olive, mustard or any number of other colours would also work well. I felt that dark grain boots went well here although you could substitute them for shell tassel loafers (as Drake’s have done), shell boots but in a darker colour. My gut feel is that a darker colour would work better than say, snuff suede.

The cap is a donegal cashmere which adds a little texture but is also interesting when you get closer.
