[Lookbook 03.26.2012] Mismatching


I'm not normally comfortable straying too far from the usual color combinations out there. In the case of my outfit today, I would have gone with either blue, black or gray pants with this plaid jacket, as I have several times over. Or if I'm to anchor everything else on the brownish-olive pants, then this jacket would immediately be out. I'd probably have something in brown or black with it.


But I thought I should expand my horizons and take a couple of risks here and there, and so the brownish-olive pants with the blue plaid jacket. Because the combination is already out of my comfort zone, I wore a plain white shirt to go with them. I mean, it's the safest choice. The tie isn't necessarily a tame choice but I took comfort in the fact that it borrows from the reddish color in the jacket's pattern. Then for my leather (shoes and belt), I went with dark tan.


Does it look odd or is it just fine? The thing is, I was confident in it and once I stepped out of our house this morning, there never was any moment when I felt conscious about it or anything. I simply owned it, I guess.


Anyway, happy Monday!
White shirt (Dansen at SM Department Store); tie and watch (SM Department Store); trousers and belt (Topman); plaid blazer (Zara); shoes (Tyler).
