seeing stripes

What better way to dive into spring with those striped sweaters and shirts. Jump on board and get an all time classical sailor inspired trend. Ranging from red to green with white stripes, but for that timeless look go something classy and subtle with navy and white stripes. Pair it with either worn jeans or khakis to pull it off. Dont stop there. Dig in into your grandpa's closet and try on his old loafers for a change. Might look preppy but a good pair of loafers would take you very far. Super comfy and practical. On the other hand, switch it up to a pair of brogues for a formal event. Give it alternate days for each shoe that usually solves most things. Hah!

Before leaving the house grab one of those oversized antique watches. Better still those oversized rounded frames with black leather straps. Which you might find it somewhere in dad's closet.

Dont fret if you've been wearing those jeans over and over. Pull out something that says more comfort with a pair of dark shades of khakis. Roll it up for that hint of ankle and you're ready to go. Never leave out the belt--always the under rated piece most if not all the time. Pick a good hardy, thick black leather belt.

Pair it with skinnies, baggy worn jeans or khakis--with the right classical sailor striped sweater one can never go wrong. What's good about this is it never goes out of style. Having said that, might as well go all out and buy one that you know youd turn back to in the future. Invest in them. Someone once told me that you're supposed to get a return when you invest in something. As long as it makes me look good, whatever, I'll invest. like these ones;

Bring out the sailor within and sail out looking good. All aboard! okaybye.
