Heels: Barefoot Shoes

Since graduation is a very important day for most students, you want to find a dress that looks great under a cap and gown.

For this post, our friend Jade decided to show off her fitted, white dress. Purchased straight from Lulus, this dress is a combination of sexy and chic, all at the same time. The heart shape top shows enough cleavage, but not too much for Grandma’s eyes.

Strictly Business: The Navy Suit

Tie: Next UK | Shoes: Giorgio Brutini

In terms of fashion and personal style, it’s important to invest in versatile pieces that you can wear year round. Take, for instance, the navy suit. Considered a uniform for the every day American male, the navy suit holds the key to the essential wardrobe.

Today, our friend D’Angelo shows  us how to style a navy suit the right way. He paired a navy suit jacket with matching slim fit pants, and white button-up. To finish off his look, he chose brown, double strap, monk shoes.

Remember, when choosing shoes for navy looks, lighter colored shoes are usually your best option. To add that extra pop, he chose a light colored yellow tie(spring time feels) and flowered lapel.

Strictly Business: The Khaki Suit

Shades: Ray-Ban Club Masters |
Lapel Pin and Ring: Harrison Black Accessories |
Watch and Band: Daniel Wellington

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!

Strictly Business: Casual Professional

post_kris3_093015_01post_kris3_093015_02post_kris3_093015_03post_kris3_093015_04post_kris3_093015_05Blazer: Asos |
Sweater: H&M |
Pants: H&M |
Shoes: Aldo |
Pocket square and lapel pin: @bell67vintage

Comfort and professional! Two words that don’t seem like they’d go together. For some odd reason, most people are under the assumption that business casual, or professional clothing, has to be uncomfortable and stuffy.

For this post, Kris shows us how to dress professionally in the most casual way possible.

He states, “This look is a great casual-formal outfit. The blazer tops off the professional look while the sweater screams business casual. Wear this outfit to work and go straight out for happy hour while looking good and staying comfortable!”

To add that extra flair to his blazer, Kris added his very own custom pocket square and lapel pin. The pocket square, which was created from hand sewn vintage fabrics, was perfectly paired with the lapel pin, made of silk flowers and a gold kilt pin. Kris agrees, “Both of these items, alone or together, adds that finishing  touch that every blazer needs.”

In finishing off this look, Kris decided to add a debonair flair with his dark brown, double monk strap dress shoes.  “The dapper man should ALWAYS own a dark, brown dress shoe and a double monk strap. In my personal opinion, monk straps compared to any other style of shoe screams, I know what I’m doing here!”

Indeed Kris, indeed.
