Look of the Week
The search for the elegant night out look can come to an end. This weeks, Look of the Week shows us how to get the smart evening out look spot on. Smart and elegant outerwear with great tailored separates, worn with swag. Illustrated by the brilliant Clare Nield of Clare and the Bear, who has created some of the most stunning illustrations for The Rakish Gent (with this being one of my absolute favorites), this look has me itching to go shopping and organise a big night out.
The look that Clare has illustrated, styled by me, is a full on navy look. The Crombie coat is a real investment piece that will serve you well through seasons and the years. This navy herringbone retro coat is a classic, made from a light, pure wool cloth which gives it a wonderful fluidity. Worn under the coat is a beautiful geometric print cotton shirt from Rake which looks great when paired with smart flat front trousers from Maison Martin Margiela (both items available from Matches Fashion) The leather tasseled loafers are from Asos Menswear, who have a brilliant selection of shoes for men.
