Somehow I managed to put on my entire wardrobe at once, it seems. When is too much really too much? This mostly goes for accessories. Easily counted by the shopping list above I am wearing 12 pieces at once, when four could easily be enough… My answer to the question is: as long as it adds to the appeal of the outfit, it belongs there. The basis of the look consists of slim trousers, a casual shirt, a knitted blazer and a coat on top. Tie, tie bar and shoes should be easily argued for. Then there’s the fedora that brought out the grey tones in the outfit and worked well with the knitted scarf, casually hung around my neck. A watch goes with any outfit and even a “manbag” is certainly not considered anything extraterrestrial anymore. And I myself probably would have more reasons not wear socks than you guys do, as you so often lament I should wear more.
Now you’re like: “Wait — why’d you even have to explain all of this? All of the pieces just belong to the outfit?!” – And that’s the point.
