SS13 Look Book: Smart Minimalism

Thought I'd go all easy peasy and scrap the lashings of TOPMAN metal in favour of a paired down approach. 

What we have here is my best attempt at looking intentionally under-accessorised. Obviously, I had to make a statement with the footwear to compensate.

I like that the look is a little grungy in its palette and footwear but still suitable suited and smart looking.

I adore the colour of this suit, a warm sticky red wine sauce colour that was as perfect at Christmas time as it will be on a summer's eve.

Suit, Primark, Exclusive to Selfridges Manchester Trafford
Shirt, ZARA 
Boots, Dr Martens

I wear it with an ashy grey shirt to keep the tones distinct but equally murky and earthy. This is also a really comfy shirt because its so stretchy!

I quite like the effect of the stompy Dr Martens boots with the smart suit, I'm not entirely convinced the trousers are skinny enough to cope but I like the experiment.

What dya think? @jordanjmcdowell
