Tuxedo details go hand in hand with my menswear-centric style, and I’m attracted to interesting ones like a moth to a flame. During the fall/winter sales, I picked up this white silk tuxedo shirt with leather bowtie by favorite designer, Marissa Webb, and I’m currently trying to decide if this black version from Club Monaco deserves a spot in my wardrobe (the size xs fits surprisingly small for a silk blouse if anyone is wondering about sizing, also on sale).
A new tuxedo addition that didn’t need much thought is this J.Crew swiss-dot tuxedo shirt. It’s a thin, sheer cotton, which will make it a great summertime staple, and the swiss-dots give it an interesting texture to layer under a cardigan or blazer. Best part, it’s on sale, so it can be had at an extra percent off during one of J.Crew’s many recent “the sale’s on sale” promos.
When it comes to watches, I love a clean, simple watch face; the look is elegant and timeless. For this reason, Daniel Wellington has caught my attention, a new watch company from Sweden with an emphasis on minimalist design. The watch face has a super slim and elegant profile, which plays well with the interchangeable watch straps which range from traditional leather to preppy nylon Nato styles. For a more traditional look, I opted for the Classic Sheffield Lady, a larger diameter rose gold rimmed watch face on a sleek black leather band. It’s a really beautiful timepiece!
I got a few questions about this watch on Instagram, and I’m happy to announce you can get 15% off at DanielWellington.com with code “alterationsneeded” through May 15th, 2014. Shipping is free wordwide with the purchase of at least one watch.
