This week, we have another deceptively simple men’s fashion formula to add to your arsenal. Start with a patterned gingham shirt, add a bright tee, toss on a pair of jeans, and finish off the outfit with a pair of driving moccasins. Here’s why this outfit works:
Repetition: The colors in the outfit are driven by the blue and white gingham shirt. The blue in the button down shirt is echoed in the more vibrantly colored blue ringer tee, which itself hints at the white in the gingham shirt–and the crisp white jeans.
Color Coordination: The vibrant blue of the tee requires an equally rich color to complement it. The deep chocolatey brown driving moccasins are exactly what the stylist ordered. Aren’t these colors great together?
Attitude: From the ever-so-wrinkled gingham shirt right down to the suede driving moccasins, the entire outfit exudes a kind of refined casualness.
