Only few guys can pull together a look like this, it requires a certain personality. First, the layering: bright yellow crew neck t-shirt, black fleece zip cardigan and dark green velvet blazer with capri pants, converse and a fedora hat. Frank Sinatra once said “Cock your hat-angles are attitudes”. In this case, he committed to the hat and wore it with confidence.
You could easily find a guide on how to dress in a bookstore, but it will only show you “a recipe” of basics outfits. The point is not to dress as every single magazine or to wear the latest trend, is to mix and match and try to maintain your trade mark. Sense of style is underrated and not everyone has it. The key is in the way you pull what you are wearing and it doesn’t matter the brand or price of what you wear. Usually when you meet someone who really knows about fashion, they say they buy from vintage stores, from some high-end designers and from mass market brands (H&M, Zara, Gap, Uniqlo, etc).
