Camo and floral prints are pretty big right now, but don’t forget about animal prints. Sure it can be risky, but if worn the right way it can make a bold style statement. (Or maybe Jersey is just getting to us…) For this outfit, we channeled Brad Pitt’s character in the Ocean’s Trilogy. So we present, “Dusty Ryan,” the outcast from Ocean’s Eleven. The white pants/navy blazer combo is pretty classic so we knew we could experiment with a vibrant print for the shirt. If you’re looking to make a statement, choose one bold item and keep the rest of the outfit toned down so it doesn’t look too loud. We’ll be showcasing more of our printed/patterned shirt looks in the upcoming months for more inspiration.

Wedding Weekend: Anthony
If you saw Dustin’s wedding outfit post from yesterday, you’ll notice that we both wore navy suits. Since we both wore the same color suit, we obviously wanted to make our outfits look different and stand out from one another. For Anthony’s outfit, we did a pale yellow floral print shirt which compliments the yellow in Dustin’s shirt. Not gonna lie, we had a hard time finding the right color tie to wear with the shirt. We chose the pink bow tie to play up some of the pink in the print of the shirt and then paired it with some light pink socks to tie the whole color scheme together. This is a good tip when chosing a tie to pair with a patterned/multicolored shirt:
Choose one accent color in the shirt and then wear a tie in a similar shade. Then use socks or a pocket square to really bring that color into the rest of the outfit.
Sidenote: The suit is by Joe Fresh and was a new purchase. It’s an unstructured blazer in a stretchy cotton fabric so it was super comfy and easy to move (read: dance like cray) in. It’s not the most formal material for a wedding but it works well since it’s appropriate for the season and the shirt, tie, and shoes help to dress it up a bit more.

So much animal print lately. Not sure why but just really feeling these bold prints. One of the things I love to do when putting together an outfit is pair casual classic pieces with something unexpected. The shirt is definitely bold but not too crazy once it’s layered under casual solids. Adding an element of surprise like this is great way to keep your wardrobe fresh and exciting especially when you are used to wearing the same things every day. It’s also a great way to show off your personality and style.
