I had the pleasure of teaming up with Bonobos for a fall inspired look book inspired by one of their hottest men’s suits looks. I absolutely love wearing blazers and pairing a blazer with a fall outfit brings a crisp defined look to an array of looks especially distressed, ripped jeans- one of my favs.
I believe that a great suit adds an extra flair of confidence and if you don’t want to do the whole look, a blazer is quick addition that’ll create a polished look.
This white and black tuxedo look below was the inspiration to my look. I love how this suit creates such a uniformed and well-put together image. It’s a great fall look that can continue right into the holiday and into the New Years- think New Years bash!
I chose this tuxedo inspired blazer from Anarchy Street and panaled skinny pants for a black and off white timeless look.
Suited Up: How to Dress the Part
Fit starts with the shoulders: The jacket should grab your shoulders snuggly but not be overly tight. If the shoulders fit, pretty much anything else can be adjusted.
Length matters: To determine the appropriate length, you should be able to cup the bottom of the suit with your arms by your side.
Show some shirt: A flexible but general rule of thumb is to have a quarter-inch of your shirt cuff showing. If you’re wearing a heavier cuff, like a French cuff, you may want to show a little more.
