Stylish dandy look

BY SVEN – What does my outfit need to achieve? It has to be dapper and yet practical at the same time. After all, I place a lot of importance on style for my daytime look in the office. I’m particularly taken with the trendy dandy look. But, for me, it’s got to have a modern twist

Thinking about the traditional dandy style conjures up images of tastefully dressed chaps with bow ties and thick horn-rimmed spectacles. You don’t need me to tell you that it’s all about the finer details when it comes to interpreting a particular style effectively. That said, I tend to lean towards a more casual take on what is actually quite a formal look.

Putting the look together

Comfy chinos

My dandy look is based around a pair of white chinos from Strellson. The light colour makes this outfit perfect for the spring season.

Button-down shirt

I’ve gone for a more casual shirt as opposed to the usual business shirt and bow tie combination. I really like this offering from the Polo Ralph Lauren range.

Classic waistcoat

The casual dandy look centres around a stylish waistcoat and this sporty little number from BOSS fits in perfectly with my outfit.

Tasteful sports jacket

The whole look is finished off with a navy sports jacket from Hackett. When putting together a dandy-inspired outfit, the key is to ensure that muted or natural colours dominate.  

Business bag

Stylish accessories add those all-important finishing touches to the outfit. You can’t head into the office without a bag of some kind, so I’ve gone for an elegant specimen from Porsche Design.

Classy chronograph

Even if you go for a less formal take on the dandy look, you still need a watch in keeping with the style. I opted for a stunning model from Hamilton.

And now over to you! What do you think of my new look?
