Definition of Style

Style NOT fashion. Style is not about wearing the latest fashion. More often than not, fashion trends come and go. On the other hand, style is knowing who you are. As such, we are all entitled to our definition of style. Presented herein is one element of my personal style; a summer look displaying accessories working in harmony. A play on monochromatic color schemes, in this case Blue and Orange.

Worn here is a pair of Orange Oxford trousers from Spier and Mackay, made from 2 Ply Egyptian Cotton Yarn. Cotton is one the best fabrics for hot weather. Paired with a light blue dress shirt from Charles Tyrwhitt and vest in a darker shade of Blue. To bring it all together, I opted for this particular flat cap for two reasons: 1) paisley design outlined in shades of orange – in harmony with the trousers, 2) dominating backdrop of Royal Blue, in harmony with the dress shirt and vest.

By the way, our new collection of FOTY hats is coming very soon, in three styles: Flat Cap, Bucket Hat and Newsboy Cap a la Peaky Blinders. Stay tuned!

FOTY Lookbook Style Tip: Aim for subtle elements such as monochromatic colors. Monochromatic (or mono) is a color scheme based on only one, single color tint. In any case, monochromatic color schemes is a pretty good definition of style personally.
