The Formula One Lifestyle

The Formula One LifestyleWelcome to another edition of This Weeks Look. After the excitement of the Chinese Formula 1 Race this weekend, I thought it appropriate and timely to focus this weeks look around the rich and the famous. As you may be aware if you watch the sport, the drivers make obscene amounts of money and a lot of them are not afraid to spend it living the high life in party cities like Monaco. Jensen Button, David Coulthard, Lewis Hamilton and even the quiet Kimi Raikkonen have been accused of being Playboys who enjoy their yachts and women.

The inspiration behind this weeks look is just complete Formula 1 Playboy. This means hot weather, yacht parties, high life and extravagance. In order to pull off this look this spring/summer you need to be extremely confident within yourself and not be afraid to have people look at you, as the outfits are eye catching. If you are not congruent with this look then it can fall flat on it’s face and you might come across as a try hard. However, if you have the style and swagger to pull it off, you will totally rock it and have people looking at you everywhere you go (believe me).

The basis of the outfit are bright colours, extravagant patterns, and light weight fabrics. Do not be afraid to stand out, the only thing that will get you noticed in this world is being different and not being afraid to express yourself. It will not be to everyone’s tastes and you will definitely get some haters, but they will be the people who have never stepped out of their comfort zone and are insecure about who they are as people. Don’t let them bother you. YOU CAN TOTALLY ROCK THIS LOOK, and when you do – the results will out stand you.

Let’s get to it…

Formula 1 PlayBoy

So the basics of the outfit are not individual items this week, but more the overall look. You are looking for extravagant patterns, bright solid colours and light weight material suitable for summer. I will try and list varying price ranges again so you can spend as little or as much as you want. Remember that this look is about versatility and not every item here should be just thrown on together… You want a little extravagance but not a full on mish mash of colours and textures. Think white shorts with a bright pink polo and a lightweight blue cardigan. Or lightweight cotton trousers with a bold striped shirt.

Additional items you may want to throw on would be Sunglasses or swim shorts (if you are heading somewhere nice this summer!).
