With the all important summer social events and invitations coming all at once it’s hard to tell if we can get it right first time with the exception of Polo In The Park and Henley. Dressing to impress is a must where not only the elite rowing contest take centre stage but so does style. Read my recent blog post on Regatta Style from the Celebrities to the Spectators with who’s wearing what this year and where to be scene at the After Parties. We observe the movers and shakers of the rowing crowd, also the elite fashion veterans take on style.
It’s a known fact guys hate shopping, but in fact it’s quite the opposite when it comes to summer social event’s, even the debonair man needs to look his best. From experience I learn what suits best and give my recommendations for outfits and how to wear them by including these in your daily style edit.
Why not take an optimistic approach to colour and pairing your outfit with a bold statement set of bright trousers and the contrast of colours from red, green and yellow which are available to purchase from the high street to designer labels. These are worth investing in especially if you’re looking at brightening up that essential summer wardrobe.
Fitted shirt styles from Ralph Lauren are always great because they come in a variety of classic styles in the white button down collared shirt to pastel shades and bold stripes in blue. Then finish off the look with a neutral seer sucker style blazer to even out the contrast of shades. A Seer Sucker blazer is unlined, so designed to keep you cool during the hot summer months at event occasions.
With the English social calendar upon us we focus our attention towards stylish sporting events from the Varsity Polo, Polo in the Park to Henley Royal Regatta.
For this look at Polo In The Park, I decided to keep it neutral as being a non rower I felt I had to express an identity of my own. With summer you can’t go wrong and what better way to do this is to keep it neutral with a classic Ralph Lauren seersucker blazer but still include a splash of colour as you find the contrast helps bring out the best of both shades. Even by adding the slightest finishing touches to a look such as a colour coordinated pocket square by Forever 21 to tailored jackets can overall emphasize the best features of the whole outfit’s attire.
Looking for the perfect summer shoes can depend on the softness, texture and comfort to make it easier to walk on the lawn and inside the marquee enclosures. A slip on suede loafer in tan or dark brown rather than leather shoes helps the foot breathe more freely during the spring summer season.
Finally, your accessories choice can either create a luxury feel of sophistication or fail by choosing unsuitable items. You can’t go wrong with skinny belts in brown is minimal. Less is more. One of my personal favourites is a preppy style collegiate belt in dark navy with diagonal red stripes.
