better together

20 Jan

I got some raves about my deconstruction post (shoutout to the younger Haile sister), so I think I will make it a feature.

There are few things I like better than fitted couples. I’m not saying you have to match (although I’m a fan of Kanye and Amber Rose matching their Jordans) but when I can tell that you got dressed together with the other person in mind it makes my heart melt a little.

The Inspiration (photo also from the Sartorialist):

My take, head to toe:

Estelle Henley, Ella Moss

Cobblestone Jacquard Miniskirt, Leifsdottir

Faux Leather Belt, Lauren by Ralph Lauren

‘Bianca’ Wedge Sandal, Miss Sixty

Your guy:

Classic-Fit Striped Oxford, Polo by Ralph Lauren

Rumbled Chino, Allsaints

A.J.S. II, Pointer

Or if he’s more the sneaker type:

Zoom Stefan Janoski, Nike SB

If the jacquard is too much for a summer day it could be switched for something linen easily and look just as good. I also think a chunky cuff bracelet would go perfectly with this outfit. The Polo button down is not super exciting but you just have to do it. If there isn’t on in the closet already there should be. The guy’s shoes are more general, suede was just the idea. I like the thought of the green sneakers though because it doesn’t really match the green striped shirt just goes well (matching is not the business). The number of things you could wear those with would be limited though. I would also add some wayfarers just for good measure, I don’t care what anyone says about them they always work. Oh and note the watch in the photo! Never underestimate a good watch.

    I really like the guy recommendations! Not a big fan of suede shoes, but may have to try it out. This is a great concept though, I’ll run it by my wife sometime.

      Go for it! Elvis songs aside suede shoes are great and are perfect for spring (just please no blue).
