Live Action Getup: Autumn Blues

Blue is one of the only colors in our culture that you can wear a whole outfit out of. Could you imagine something similar with red or green? Notice the three different shades: light, medium, dark; and most importantly, the different textures. The rough denim, oxford shirt, and smooth chinos help to further differentiate the colors.

    Excellent observation about blue. It’s long been my favorite color and I’ve been learning a lot about how key texture is as an element. Thanks for the great shoe recommendation as well!

    I’ve got that briefcase on my Christmas list. I know it’s early but I’ve seen it recommended so many times I have to get it.

    You can’t go wrong with Gap’s oxfords, I really like the cut of them.

    Any body have reviews on the shoes? Been looking for a new pair of wingtips like this, but not familiar with the brand.

      I own the exact pair. AMAZING. High quality at a reasonable price. I get compliments on them almost every time I wear them. DSW carries their whole line and there are definitely a few more styles I’ll be purchasing from that brand.
