Combining Black & Blue – Smart Casual featuring Deep Blue Selected Homme Blazer BLK DNM T-Shirt & AllSaints Cropped Trousers
Lately I’ve been discovering a slightly more sophisticated facette of my style that in my opinion is typical for the transition men go through in their mid twenties. For many young men this is a period in which they find themselves torn between the carefreeness of late adolescence, ambitions of building something for themselves and the responsibilities of grown-up life. With handling these challenges comes a newly discovered maturity, a redefinition of yourself.
Thus my style has seen a shift towards a little more classiness, nevertheless maintaining a certain youthful playfulness. However, I’m not the conservative or stuffy kind of person so with all the new found love for elegance I always like to take out the rigidness by combining classy elements with more casual ones.
This outfit is a great example for my new favorite kind of casual chic attire. An all black core is freshened up with a deep blue contrast on top. Cropped chinos with a slight drop crotch provide a classy retro look. The blazer is one of my key pieces for this spring and I think it looks particularly good with a properly fitting plain tee underneath. That way you can emphasize your cool and non-chalant side. To highlight the beautiful fit of the trousers I like to wear my tee tucked in. This style is perfectly suitable for dates, going out, as well as business in less conservative industries. It’s fancy but down to earth, posh yet not overstated, minimalistically elegant and sophisticatedly casual.
