Extra Ten Percent : The Tiny Details Part I
Everyday when getting dressed I personally like to add the little details to make my outfit stand out. Sometime people tend to go overboard with the amount of accessories they will add to a look and that is fine if that’s your thing. When going simple, I really just like to keep the colors of my accessories consistent with colors in my outfit.
Khaki, red and blue are colors that compliment each other well. When the colors are flat they will not over power each other and will look great with some small accessories like the red silk knots, tan and blue watch strap with a blue and white braided bracelet. This may all sound like a lot of pieces to add together, however; all the colors are consistent and uniform to the rest of the outfit.
A nice pair of khaki can look professional and still remain pretty relaxed when pair with a navy blazer for work. The key to any good pair of pants is having them tailored well. A few posts ago, I wrote about hemming a pair of pants for the first time on my own and these khakis are the pants that I was working on. Something that is very important is to keep your pants pressed. If you put on your pants and they have wrinkles, pull out the iron and go to work (for cotton/chinos). The one detail that never goes out of style is well pressed clothing that is wrinkle free.
