So let's have a look, starting with my friend Jason:
Jason has been a very close friend of mine for the last few years and he owns a small business in town. When he's not out working hard, he likes to dress more relaxed and enjoy the nightlife. With this in mind, I wanted to put together a weekend look for him. I like working with leather jackets because they are really versatile and can be dressed up or down by changing the layers underneath, so I had a look around for one. Here's what we went with:
Next up is Bilal:
Bilal has been a good friend of mine since I first met him when he joined my fraternity a few years back. Now he's an accountant and has to wear at least business casual everyday, so he doesn't have a chance to wear casual looks like the soccer jerseys he favours. With this in mind, we went to find some good work clothes for Bilal. However, upon getting to the shops it wasn't long before I was distracted by some casual looks I wanted to try, so we went in that direction with a promise to Bilal that I'll help him find work clothes another day.
Here's what I put together:
Playing with visual texture as I did here is on way to breathe life into monochromatic looks. Thanks to Bilal for letting me style him. All items are by Zara.
In my next post in the "Adventures in Styling" series, I'll be moving on to put some styles on women for the first time in years, so keep your eyes out for that and please let me know what you think.
Also, I've set up a Facebook page for my bid in this contest and I'd really appreciate it if you could check it out below and like it. It will definitely help with the judges. Thanks!
