If you remember my le mans post, you know I absolutely LOVE vintage cinema and alot of my fashion reflects this. For this post, we’re going to dive into winter fashion with some ensembles that transition from dress to casual as smoothly as Carey Grant does from lady to lady.
To start things off we’ll start with the peacoat. Fashionably appropriate every year, it’s a good start to our classic yet modern ensemble. $213.90 @ Nordstrom.com
Instead of the usual gray wool, we’re going to go with a more complicated check pattern. Not too flashy yet just enough detail to stand out. $345 @ Nordstrom.com
Usually I’d recommend a crisp white for the button-down, but for this outing we’ll opt for a beautifully soft peach. It’ll tie into what we’ve got planned I promise 🙂 $65 @ Nordstrom.com
Gray slacks. From the beginning of modern fashion, we men have always looked great in these. Choose a heavier material for the colder weather. I’d only go a shade or two darker than the blazer this time. $145 @ Nordstrom.com
For shoes we’re going brown. Gray on black is so boring and conventional. These lighter examples perfectly accent the button-down, blazer, slacks, AND the jewels coming next.
Gold all the way. This Nixon is hotter than the sun and plays off our color scheme in the best way possible.
If you’re going to rock any other jewelry with this outfit make sure it resides in the brown color palette (brown, copper, gold, etc.) to maintain our current aesthetic.
Neckwear I leave to your imagination but to ensure compatibility, try to pick up something that highlights the two colors we’ve been working with (perhaps a smoke & brown stripe or check?). With the options presented here, you’ll be able to blow all of your colleagues away with your timeless yet modern interpretation of a winter wardrobe. For more fashion-forward writing, check out
