THE NEW DAPPER


SOMETHING OLD, SOMETHING NEW



Nautica navy blazer (similar here), Club Monaco tailored floral shirt (similar here), DIY ombre shorts, Rag & Bone belt, Tretorn sneaker boat shoes

Truth to be told, I've never really considered myself to be much of a dapper soul. Sure, I have experimented with dapperific ensembles here and there. But I wouldn't call myself a bonafide dapper. My Sunday best would normally consist of a leather jacket, leather pants and a pair of trusty oxfords or sneakers.

Staying true to the original mission of MYBELONGING, I want to define "dapper" on my own terms. I hope to depart from the traditionally-masculine and heavy image that is so strongly associated to the concept of dapper-dressing, by pairing a classic, navy blazer with an unexpected splash of ombre, a lighthearted floral printed shirt and sneaker-esque boat shoes from Tretorn. Hope you enjoy my "dapper distraction" outfit!
