Something Navy

I love this spin on a button down shirt! Channeling the off-the-shoulders trend with a men's dress shirt, navy pencil skirt and straw boater hat.


outfit details: vintage wool pencil skirt (similar), Hugo Boss men's dress shirt, Sam Edelman sandals.

I'm in love with the Jacquemus Spring 2017 runway show from PFW. The dramatic proportions are reminiscent of Provençal figurines (les Santons de Provence) with a whiff of 80s nostalgia. The color palette was decidedly neutral, putting all the more emphasis on the billowing sleeves and angular shoulders.

It's refreshing when you can draw real life inspiration from runway shows, rather than just oggle "all the pretty dresses." I've been trying to wrap my mind around a DIY to get a similar billowy-sleeve effect à la Jacquemus. Until then, expect to see a lot more weird button down shirt outfits. Hooray!
