Sometimes when I dress it’s all about the suit accessories. You know the tie, lapel pin, pocket square, socks- the suit accessories. These things when coordinated properly can turn a regular blue suit into something spectacular.
On one of the first warm days this Spring, I took a stroll through Dark Star Park in Arlington, Virginia. The park located in Rosslyn is Arlington’s first major commissioned park. Large spheres represent fallen stars were designed to resemble fallen stars. It was a nice backdrop to showcase my navy suit along with my latest suit accessories.
Harrison Blake is a monthly subscription service which offers 1 necktie + 4 accessories for $25. This is option to keeping your suit game looking fresh by constantly changing up your tie along with other suit accessories. I’ve tried them out for a couple of months and so far, I like the additional options I have when putting together combinations. Sometimes I get in a rut of wearing the same things over and over. I like the fact that I now have some added choices when putting looks together.
I like the idea of a heavily patterned shirt with a solid tie. Typically, I’ve been known to do the opposite with the tie having the pattern but I really liked this look. The other change for me for this look was wearing both a lapel flower and the pocket square. I usually do one or the other but it’s spring so why not change things up a bit from time to time? Lastly, I thought the socks were really fun. I’m loving the additional pop of color. I’m thinking this look is a winner? Your thoughts?
