A man who isn’t afraid to take risks and shout with his fashion.
This is for those who are looking for some inspiration on how to be fashionably bold.
One of my favorite ways to be fashionably bold is through what I call “non-sequiturs” (which means “it does not follow” in Latin). The idea is to take clothes (at first thought) that should NOT work together and making it work. It takes some balls to experiment and try new things at first, but you’ll quickly find what you like and come up with some killer looks that people rarely see on others.
If you’re someone who can handle attention, then you have what it takes to pull off bold style. You may get some odd stares but you’ll also undoubtedly get admiration from those who respect bold fashion.
A very light example of wearing “non-sequiturs” is mixing formal wear with casual wear such as a blazer with a hoodie. A more advanced example of this might be something like wearing a skinny tie as a belt. However, when done right, i.e., brown skinny knit tie with khaki linen pants, it can look great.
The look above is a perfect example of this because from the top down it looks like a classic outfit, until you get to the shoes. Almost nobody would think that purple shoes would match this outfit, but the fact that the rest of the outfit is kept classic makes the shoes stand out that much more.
In a way, non-sequiturs should not be attempted if you’re just starting out and do not understand the fundamentals of style. It’s really more of an advanced concept for those who want to take some risk with their style.
When playing with non-sequiturs, you will face some resistance from people (mostly who are not fashionable at all). But you’ll also most definitely gets lots of compliments on your “creativity” or “artistry” by those who take quality care of their own image.
So this month, try a bold color in an unexpected piece of clothing like your shoes. It’s a great way to create a shockingly attractive look.
