BOLD IN PRINTS x Dapmod x Damsco

Heeeeey guysssss 🙂

Welcome to November baby! wish you all the best of this beautiful month.

So today, I’d like for us to talk about a not so basic topic, the art of taking risks in fashion with major focus on Prints!

Let’s be honest, prints and patterns can be tricky,  really tricky, and if you’ve built a classic, timeless and versatile capsule wardrobe, it can be difficult to make a decision on how to perfectly go bold in Prints, rather, the easier option is incorporation of Print details, but then again, how else do you make a fashion statement if you’re not ready to go bold?

I wore the outfit in this editorial to the First day of the just concluded Heineken Lagos Fashion and Design Week 2015  ( which was amazing by the way ) and in literal terms it’s a suit made from Bold Newspaper Print fabric.

Sure, a Suit like this is already a statement, but there are two sides to statement fashion pieces and the most important consideration is the Styling!
You can either look like a Fashion disaster or be a huge fashion inspiration with the same statement outfit.

Specifically speaking, because of how bold the prints in this ensemble are, it’s best for the detailing to be plain and simple just like I used Burgundy details here, for the Tie, the Pocket detail and the Lapel pin.

It’s also important to accessorize properly, not overly. Wristwatches, Collar pins, Tie clips come in handy, especially when you’re trying to achieve a Dapper look.

Apart from the styling, Fit is always King! Make sure your outfit fits perfectly, and pay attention to the shoes, everything matters, even your confidence!

Topped up the outfit with a pair of Aviator shades from Dapmod. It’s no news that aviators are in trend this season so why not?

  4. Wow!! This should really trend. When I saw this, I was like who could think of this? Newspaper print fabric!!! Its really ‘dope’, am a big fan so youre like my ‘man style crush’ (if there’s anything like that). So I want to ask if there was any reason why the collar pin is not underneath the tie knot?
