This is my spin on the ever so fantastic Canadian Tuxedo aka jean on jean. I wanted to showcase the classic Roots World Famous Crew and make it something that you could wear out for a night out on the town.
I paired it with a pencil jean skirt and tucked the sweater in at the band only (to avoid too much bulging) and topped it with a jean vest instead of your typical jean jacket, creating difference and a not so typical look. Then for the toppers to complete the look, I decided I needed some fun textures - so I added a chunky toque and a statement necklace! BAM! That simple!

You knew it wouldn’t be long before I busted out the manimal print again. The Jersey gal in me just can’t stay away from her luxurious prints. But rather than giving you Jersey Shore realness, I’m serving some Bad Girl RiRi meets gay Mexican gangster instead. I mean leather moto vests will turn literally anyone into a badass. *Pictures mom in this vest* And anyone remember when bandana scarves were a thing? I mean I see the practicality of it. It keeps you warm, it’s more stylish than a face mask when your sick, and it could totally come in handy if you decided to mug someone for subway fare. Anyway, this is the outfit you wanna wear to give a big F U to Miss Polar Vortex. She’s tryin it really hard right now in NYC but we’ll see who comes out on top!
For me, one of the most interesting aspects of colder days is the variety of outfit combinations they allow. Layering is not only a necessary technique to fend off cold, but also one of the most creative ways to explore your wardrobe and come up with unique styles. Although there are some rules to be kept in mind, both for aesthetic and functional purposes, I find myself constantly trying to bend them and invert traditional layering elements.
In this particular case, which of course is not suitable for harsh climate, I aimed to explore different uses for essential garments such as the v-neck cashmere sweater, popover shirt and tweed vest, all while maintaining a mix of casual and polished elements. More often than not, the v-neck would find its place as an outer layer with the tweed vest being worn under a blazer or topcoat; here I went for a different approach wearing the sweater over a tee, the popover shirt as an outer layer and the vest as outerwear. The polished nature of the vest, sweater and wool slacks are broken down by the chambray shirt and camo sneakers. Accessories such as the pocket square and paisley scarf complete the look.
Details: cotton tee by Levi’s, v-neck cashmere/silk sweater by Massimo Dutti, chambray popover shirt by Zara, houndstooth vest by Purificacion Garcia, tailored wool slacks by Gentleman, camo sneakers by Asos, paisley scarf by Zara and pocket square by The Tie Rack.
#GDCFW Inspired by this amazing blog I follow, girlsdressingcuteforwork I thought I would post my work outfit of the day. I have to dress according to Company dresscode, but I always find a way to add my own personal flair!

You’ve been avoiding floral patterns because you think they’re just a fad. Consider this a public service announcement: florals are here to stay in the men’s fashion world. Don’t be afraid to wear florals; instead, learn when and how it’s a good idea to wear them.
1) The Setting is Key
Spring and summer are always great times to bust out your floral menswear gear. There are numerous labels and designers that create masculine floral tees and short-sleeve button-down shirts in lightweight, natural fabrics. Don’t worry, florals can still work for fall and winter; just go for pieces with darker, bolder designs. Thinking of wearing florals to a traditional office setting one day? Keep it to accessories, and save it for Casual Fridays.
2) Know the Floral Species that work for You
Just like other fashion patterns, florals come in a variety of designs and motifs. And just like those other patterns, certain designs look better on you than others; it all comes down to experimenting and trying out pieces to see how they work for you. Some common floral designs that are easy to pull off: Classic, Micro, Tropical, and Graphic.
3) Transition from a Floral Rookie to a Floral Pro
Don’t buy a 2-piece floral suit or a floral blazer right away when you first start out wearing this pattern. Start with accessories and smaller pieces with floral accents that can be worn with solid menswear items; they’ll add pops of color to your outfit, and you’ll slowly get the hang of which floral designs match with your personal style.
