London Collections Men or LCM as it is also known is now over, with all the attention now on Pitti Immagine over in Italy. Here in Ireland we are lucky enough to be blessed with many great style influences. I am going to look at Darren Kennedy’s outfits throughout LCM and see how you can copy his look and maybe you too can vote Ireland’s most stylish man. (more…)
We are always told if you feel inspired, strike while the iron is hot!! Well this post couldn’t be more true to that saying. I was scrolling through GQ’s most stylish men of the week section this afternoon when I came across this picture of Idris Elba.
I have always been a big fan of Idris’s style as he tends to look good whether he is suited and booted or running down to the corner shop for a pint of milk. In the picture shown he is attending the Mandela, My Dad and Me premiere.
I really love the nautical pieces in this outfit. The breton stripe jumper is a wardrobe staple and can be paired with almost anything. Its perfect for summer as it is great paired with chinos or shorts for a nice summer time look that is both smart and casual. Pair this with a white t-shirt or polo shirt underneath to keep it smart and simple.This breton beauty from Topman is priced at £32.
According to the River Island website this trench coat is a MUST HAVE! I couldn’t agree more as once again is a classic piece that goes with almost anything and can smarten up the most casual of outfits! The navy colour is very versatile and can be paired with most colours. The coat retails at €95.
Yet again Idris ticks another wardrobe stable box with the tailored black trousers. As mentioned earlier this can be paired with almost anything, making it very versatile. I have always been a fan of trousers from Next. They are always very affordable and of fantastic quality. This pair for €31 are very affordable and wont make a huge hole in your wallet.
Finally we reach the final piece of the jigsaw. These Black leather trainers from Topman are almost identical to the pair Idris is wearing at the premiere. Again these wont put a huge dent in your bank account £45 and are very on point. They add a nice finishing touch to this smart casual outfit.
Hope you enjoyed this post and happy shopping if you plan on buying the outfit or just some of the pieces from it! Feel free to leave feedback and anything you would like to see in future posts!
I recently posted this picture of Lewis Hamilton at an IWC launch recently.
I thought it was a great smart casual look. The tan shawl jumper is a real trans seasonal piece and the colour is an all year round wardrobe staple. Here are some pieces that will help you achieve this look in two different ways. I based the outfit around the Jumper as it was the stand out piece for me in the outfit. In look 1 I copied what Lewis wore and teamed it with a white shirt, I added a pair of slim fit dark wash jeans and Chelsea boots from RIver Island to complete the look. For look 2 I changed it to a cardigan and added a navy shirt and chinos with a pair of chocolate brown desert boots to make it more casual.
