Looking for a way to enhance your spring wardrobe? A tan or khaki suit is the perfect option, especially since they can be worn with almost any color or print. Imagine styling your suit with a light colored gingham button down and pastel knit tie with floral accessories. Sounds like a great look, right?

Just in case you are still looking for another option, Alex drops by UnregisteredStyle to show off his khaki suit.

Like most khaki suits, this one is very weather appropriate. Alex agrees and had this to say, “The key to pulling off a full suit as temperatures rise is to go with lighter fabrics, like the chino seen here, and unlined jackets to let you breath a bit. To keep yourself cool as things heat up and you’re more incline to take lunch outdoors, ditch the socks and keep your ankles lotioned for some extra ventilation as well.”

In addition, Alex used a few accessories for a little flare. He states, “With the suit and its slim cut being a statement in itself, I used accessories to add a little more flair. Going for contrasting patterns in the same complementary color family in the pocket square and belt work well. Also, the red of the lapel pin complements the pink of the oxford and ties it all together with the watch band.”

We at the UnregisteredStyle endorse this look. Great job Alex!

Shorts: American Eagle | Sneakers: American Eagle

Not to be confused with the previous “How did I wear” post, I styled my favorite trench coat with a Mean Girls inspired sweatshirt, cut-off denim shorts, and a pair of floral print sneakers.

Mean Girls inspired sweatshirt? While this may seem like a bit of a stretch, but Mean Girls is one of the best movies of our generation. Not only is the film a true representation of our everyday social experiences, but it’s filled with classic one liners. So, any reference to this movie is a plus, especially on a sweatshirt.

Before we wrap up this post, lets not forget to discuss the long jacket and shorts pairing. Now, I’m not sure whether or not this combo works, but it suites this particular look quite well.

So, how do you feel about this outfit? Feel free to share with us in the comments section below.

How Did I Wear…

How did I wear…a fishtail parka?

Since the longline trend is still holding on strong this season, the fishtail parka jacket is the perfect outerwear to compliment your spring collection. Don’t get me wrong, the trench coat is one of my favorite pieces over the last few years. However, the fishtail parka is my latest obsession.

 Tip: There isn’t much that can’t be worn with the fishtail parka. So, depending on your mood, you can dress this jacket up or down with the appropriate pieces.

Initially used by the United States Army during the Korean War, this three quarter length coat is made from the most water resistant material available to consumers. Worn casually or with a suit, this jacket has many hats.

Tip: On a rainy day, try to style your jacket with a fun pair of sneakers or boots.

For this particular look, I wore my jacket with a 90s inspired geometric printed shirt from H&M. The shirt itself is very bold and brightly colored, which I can definitely appreciate. In addition, I wore my favorite white, distressed jeans with a pair of iridescent slip-in sneakers from ASOS.

Tip: Men are not the only ones that can get a hand on this great outerwear. Ladies you can have a little fun too! Consider wearing your favorite halter or crop top teamed with a pair of skinny jeans and booties. That sounds like a great look, right?
