Fashion Style & Creativity: Simply Handsome- How to Look Suited & Booted in Blazers.
Welcome to Simply Handsome the YouTube channel dedicated to Fashion, Style and Creativity for Men.
In today's episode, we'll be showing you examples on how to look Simply Handsome, suited and booted for any social events, parties or soirees.
Look 1. The handsome model is wearing a black velvet blazer from Zara, with a white shirt from Ralph Lauren, complimented by a white handkerchief from Marks and Spencers. Blue mid-wash jeans and a brown belt both from Topman. Notice how his blue jeans flow nicely into his brown tassel loafers from Russell & Bromley. Some make the diabolical mistake of wearing socks with loafers, but this model really understands fashion. I enjoy the fact that he knows how to put his wardrobe together, the brown belt compliments the brown shoes; the handkerchief compliments the white shirt. He is clean-shaven and he gets the job done in a 007, James Bond type fashion.
Look 2. The model is wearing a cream slim fit cotton washed blazer from Zara, with a brighter white shirt from River Island, that slightly stands out in contrast to the lovely fitted blazer he is wearing. The shirt is tucked into his mid-washed blue jeans from Topman, that sits half an inch above his light-brown wing-tipped-shoes from Zara. It's a cardinal sin to wear white cotton socks with any form of shoe, our model knows this very well. His choice of a light brown shoe, which is complimented by a dark belt, but then solidified by a gold silk handkerchief, which makes his whole wardrobe just stand out and pop out. This is like a subliminal message asking, "who's the daddy." Suave, slick, mature, simple, nice- sexy!
Look 3. Not everybody can look Simply Handsome in an all black ensemble, but this next model does it with impeccable slickness, black blazer, black turtle-neck both from Zara. Black jeans, black oxford velvet shoes, both from Topman. The teddy boy haircut; the black flowing jeans into the semi-pointed shoes; the moody Dead Poets Society with a splash of James Dean; all black everything has this guy looking simply handsome- great look!
Look 4. This next guy is a top man, dressed head-to-toe in nothing but Topman. He is wearing a grey and blue textured skinny blazer, accompanied by a simply, but yet effective black crew neck T-shirt. Mid-wash blue jeans, black leather oxford shoes, belt matching, shirt matching, hair gelled- awesome!
Look 5. Looking impeccable in his blue check heritage suit, by Moss Brothers. "White stand" long sleeve shirt by Topman, matching blue loafers by Burton and a white pocket placed calling card of suave, giving this model the X Factor among the stars we've seen.
All of these well-dressed men embody the five credos of looking Simply Handsome.
1. Fine Grooming. 2. Colour Coordination. 3. Complimentary Contrast. 4. Suit to Body Ratio. 5. Simplicity.
