How to look classy for less? | Lookbook #001

In here we will review stylish and basic looks and then try to recreate them for less cash.

Let us start with absolutely most basic of basics – if you don’t have pieces needed to wear that look, it should be your priority (unless it’s snowing and you don’t have a jacket, obviously)

Review

The thing is, you need it. Introvert, extrovert, young, adult, Y generation, X generation, baby-boomer, single, married, even when it’s “complicated”, creative, entrepreneur, white collar, blue collar, on loan or without – I could go on forever.

It is classy to the point of being classic. You practically can’t go wrong with it. For me it is a base look from which I then look for alternative. If you had to be welded to only one outfit, wouldn’t that be the most versatile one? Please, share in comments.

Let’s recreate that

There are many options to do this on a budget – you should find those pieces easily in every mall (or shopping center for us Europeans).

In this look the most important are the shoes and fitting. Try few shirts (tailored, slim fits etc.) for the best fitting. Take care of your belt and don’t squeeze your waist too hard with it. If you do that it won’t look good (you’ll get those puffy cushions around your waist).

I prefer to go with spread collar, because in setting without a tie, it IMO looks better.

Let’s go through what I found:
