A bit of Style advice?
Hiya there. I'm pretty new to the forum and am looking for some help completely changing my clothing style. I'm approaching thirty and have been living in jeans/t-shirts/trainers/hoodies my entire life and I have the feeling now that I'd really try to improve my look.
I was looking for a suggestion of a few different items to compliment what I've already been buying to give me a bit of advice how to put them together into range of outfits if you think thats possible?
I bought a couple of grey chambray shirts a while back and a pair of black trousers. I've recently bought a pair of burgundy slim corts and dark brown chinos. I got a tweed jacket off eBay that I really like. I wore it with a white shirt and slim black tie to a wedding recently and a friend complimented me on it and said I should wear shirt and tie more often so I'd like to go with that, but be able to keep it casual as well as dress it up for special occassions. I saw a couple of looks I liked: http://www.thedrum.com/uploads/drum_...s/caffreys.jpg
few things I wanted to know were:
1. Can a shirt and tie look work in casual situations?
2. What do you think of what I'm buying so far, is it on the right track or am I making huge mistakes?
3. Can you suggest other items it might be good to get to compliment what I already have? (Especially Footwear)
4. And could you suggest how to put these things together into outfits that look good?
