what to wear wednesdays

This Wednesday it’s back to normality for me – sporting a smarter look. I love my new shirt from ASOS; perfect for the festive season. Burgundy’s a great celebratory colour, and the polka dots add that little something extra, which needs to happen to stand out at Christmas time!

I’ve had this classic Levi’s denim jacket for a number of years now, and still find myself wearing it so often, it’s just so versatile. A must for any man’s wardrobe, and it doesn’t need to be Levi’sTopman and ASOS stock v similar, budget alternatives. When I bought it, it was actually bleached blue denim (think 90’s boyband 🙄), so I picked up some velvet black dye and got to work! (Jk, threw it in the washing machine with the dye and voila!!)

Style Tip:- Love the fit and style of a garment, but can’t stand the colour? Check out fabric dyes as a way to help this. Generally only an option if you are willing to change it to a darker colour.

Since it’s winter, I’ve had to top the outfit off with an overcoat. One of my faves in fact. This one is by Farah, and flows with a pair of jeans and trainers, just as well as with suit pants and smart shoes.

As always, thanks for reading.

Pls comment below for any style advice, or to let me know if you’d style this outfit any differently! 🙂

Peace.

I was drawn to Ibrahim’s style initially because of his outfit’s silhouette. The layered, top heavy sherpa denim jacket and shirt contrasts amazingly well with his skinny jeans, which then flow into his bulky DM’s.

The attention to detail is also excellent – a look I often go for is dark jeans and shoes – but Ibrahim has inspired me with the pop of colour in his yellow laces. It was only once I began talking to him that I noticed the captivating, aztec patterned bag and shirt which go together so well, and add huge amounts of texture to his look. This is another aspect I might incorporate into my style.

It’s clear Ibrahim has natural style, and probably threw this outfit together without thinking, but it really made him stand out from the crowd due to the excellently scaled proportions and complementary colours. I’d like to thank him for being my first street style subject of many to come!

Peace.
