I’ve been obsessed with prints practically since birth, so this palm tree printed shirt from Topman was an instant winner in my book. I paired it with corduroy jacket (also from Topman) that oozes with retro vibes. I loved how the color of the corduroy took a page out of the caramel tones of the palms on the shirt. Add in a black short and – voila! – I’ve crafted myself a cool summer outfit.
When I dress for any occasion, I’m looking for pieces that I can feel comfortable and confident in. I’ll grab a piece I love at the moment and build my outfit around it and this look was no exception.
And while we’re on the subject of Topman, I’m excited to announce that I’ll be hosting a fun evening event at their 5th Avenue store here in New York City on Thursday, May 26th from 6-9PM. Since I’ll be joined by the dapper guys from DETAILS magazine and Ian Bradley (aka @IanCogneato), I have a feeling the evening will be one to remember.
I hope you’ll be able to join me for some good cocktails, slick beats (from DJ Spiky Phil), and a first look at Topman’s newest summer styles. Plus, you’ll get 20% off and some extra swag with purchases over $100 and you’ll get to experience the amazing free personal shopping service available to all Topman shoppers.
