Spring is here although it doesn’t quite feel like it yet, but in saying that there’s still hope if this weekend is anything to go by and I definitely took full advantage.
The look I’ve put together here was inspired by styling from as early as the late 1800s early 1900’s with a modern touch. It’s a little different than what I would usually go for but that’s what makes things a little more interesting. This look is definitely more of a grown up look, for example the hat I am wearing has a taller crown with a curved brim lending itself to the fedora style. This look is a little out of my comfort zone but I definitely enjoyed experimenting with the look. I also made sure I got hold of this beautiful imperial collar shirt, which is usually worn only at special occasions such as weddings. If you accessorise with a blue cotton tie and a mustard waistcoat this will help the outfit look a little less formal and a little more modern.
Layering is important when you are trying to accomplish this look as not only does it look appealing, it also helps to keep the treacherous UK weather at bay without having to wear a thick jacket!
