The Lookbook – Get the Blues

30-1.jpg

Who says having the blues must have a negative connotation? Actually getting decked out in head-to-toe navy is a way to pull off modern minimalism while quite possibly still being the sharpest dressed guy in the room. It’s versatile and classy all juxtaposed into one sleek look. And if you’re ever going to pull off a monotone look with a suit, a dark blue hue is the way to go.

For starters, you should already have a navy suit in your closet (a wardrobe must-have for any self-respecting gentleman), but if you want to upgrade, then go for this three-piece option from Reiss. This sets the (color) tone for the rest of your look, including this Austin Reed navy slim-fit dress shirt and matching Diverso Italian silk tie. Add this midnight blue belt from Buckle (can’t find a more fitting brand than that to get your belt from, am I right?). This look will go perfectly with these Ermenegildo Zegna moccasins or, if you want to mix in some casual swagger to your dapper suit, these Sid Mashburn navy suede Chelsea sneakers are calling your name. Options are always beautiful things, especially when it comes to shoes.

Blue watches are timeless (not literally… because that would be a useless watch); rather, blue watches are classic and will forever be a timepiece that’s worth the attention it’s sure to receive. And that’s exactly how it will go down with this Tag Heuer Monaco watch. Plus, you’ll get some swag points since ‘The King of Cool’ Steve McQueen wore a similar version in Le Mans. Double dip on the deep blue luxuries by adding a Bottega Veneta duffel bag. And cap off the entire look with none other than the Blue de Chanel spray, because why not?

The best thing about navy is its versatility. You can break all these pieces up and wear them with an array of colors. Suit up to a formal event by putting all of it together or dial up that casual look for a fun night out by rocking the sneakers and losing the suit jacket. Think of these wardrobe items as an investment into your stylish future.
