An OG Style Blogger That Continues To Flex On The Game
Lessons in original style for a true original
One of the OG’s of the menswear blogging game, Denny Balmaceda aka @Denny623 on Instagram, has been dropping inspiring looks since 2009. His website Denny Balmaceda Blog (aka Look Rich, Shop Cheap) showcases his knack for mixing vintage with modern, movie & music inspired editorials and his love of capturing beautiful moments. And he reps North Jersey like a boss!
As our first, Insta-Fresh feature, we’ve selected five-looks from his Instagram account @Denny623 that will inspire you to step outside of your style box.
Big Buckle, Big Mood
Even though his shirt/hat are statement pieces, the Harley Davidson belt buckle is the true star of this look. Not overly large, the oval-shape is perfectly balanced by the diamond pattern of his shirt.
Rep Your Team
Wearing your home team fan gear is often more miss than hit. Guys often try too hard to look like a bench warmer than a stylish fan. Balmaceda crushes this look by pairing a classic NY Knicks Starter jacket with patchwork jeans. It’s sportswear meets workwear. The wild car that works in this look are the black & white spectator shoes.
If this feels too advanced for you, try styling a similar look with a Chelsea boot.
Brown In (Every) Town
Brown has been the color of the season (from sand, tobacco to chocolate), but, guys are still afraid to rock it outside of a pair of shoes. Try pairing a chocolate brown suit with a coral/pink shirt like Denny effortless does here.
Plus, don’t be afraid to show a little chest. Being sexy is dope too!
T-Shirt & Loafers
Pairing a simple t-shirt w/ a pair of tailored trousers is a underrated style move of the summer (all-year really). It’s the true definition of smart casual. And, by adding a loafer, you keep this silhouette of the look sleek and sharp.
Sporty, Your Way
Second old-school style way of 2019 — The Track Suit. The unexpected pairing, a chunky soled loafer. It works because the sole is sporty and the brown/red/green colorway of the loafers, blend perfectly with the tracksuit.
