Ostentatious x Looking fresh on a Budget

Steven Onoja : Your updated summer jacket can also function as a blazer. Try it with trousers for a very sharp, but slightly laid back, look.

White trousers are both versatile and striking. They work with just about anything including forest green and always bring a Spring/Summer outfit to a new eye-catching level.

If you haven’t already, I suggest making the investment.

A modern jacket should be slim through the midsection and have a narrow panel overlap, meaning you don’t have to worry about the old school “never wear a DB open” rule.

Green Jacket – thrift
long sleeves camo – Obey
White Trousers – Rugby
Shoes – Hanover

Don’t have much else to say about this look because it speaks for itself. A jacket can look just as sharp, without getting confused with other connotations. It also allows for a nice subtle contrast when paired with white trousers (or jeans) for an evening occasion.

In truth, I’ve always admired charismatic men with, for lack of a better term, “charm”. Men who understand how to attract people and leave an impression. They carry a certain confidence or swagger in their presence that draws people, both women and men, to them.

White trousers aren’t just for white party. Dress them up for an evening cocktail party, theatre show, charity event, etc.

Thanks, as always, for reading.
