Fall is in full effect and I love it. All the deep and rich colors that work their way from the back of the closet onto the streets just makes me feel all warm inside. Fall is a beautiful season and it is way bigger than brown, and orange. I love to play with color in the fall to stand out a bit more and to truly represent the season, so I picked up this sharp, deep purple suit from New Look, and highlighted it just for you. As a little style bonus I rocked this suit 3 different ways to show you how to get the most out of your “dress cloths”.
The Evening Suit
I kept the shoes and accessories very simple.The shoes are polished and black and you can’t go wrong with that. The Nike leather band watch has a pop of color but the design is fairly simple. I added a bit of contrast with the Hugo pocket square which helped bring some of those classic fall colors into the mix and finally I finished the look off with a Shipp and 36th handmade felt lapel rose in black.
Dressed down but dressed up Look
To Dress Down the suit I lost the tie and added some layers. Pairing this suit with a denim shirt and zip down hoodie turned this red carpet look into your everyday semi casual go-to. The beanie added that extra urban flair or “swag” as I like to call it. Notice how I still added the pocket square and opted for the classic round toed brown shoes instead of sneakers. Details like these are what makes this a “semi-casual” look. You can have a meet and greet with a potential client in this outfit and then hit the town later without skipping a beat.
To Dress that suit down even further, loose the pants and toss on your denim! I paired the New Look suit jacket with a slim cut denim shirt and my favorite pair of jeans in my closet (I got them at H&M for 30 bucks and they fit like a dream). I finished the look off with a Shipp and 36th Redwood daisy Lapel Flower to add a little extra pop of color.
And there you have it! The bold fall suit 3 different ways. Play around with the combination as you see fit. try throwing on your favorite solid V neck T-shirt instead of the denim shirt in the casual look or trading in your jacket for a nice cardigan sweater in the semi casual look. the possibilities are endless. How about you go out there and embrace fall in a new and stylish way. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed.
