When it comes to getting dressed in the morning, I don’t know about most of you but I definitely do not have more than 20 minutes to get dressed. If I take any longer than 20 minutes I’m definitely going to be late to work. Are there ways around this? Of course! I could wake up earlier or I could get my outfit ready the night before but let’s be honest here, I’m not going to do that. So the easiest way round it is to have outfits that are simple yet look fabulous. Here’s why I chose this picture for this weeks get the look; simple suit, bright tie and stand out accessories – love it!

The Look

Looking at the picture you can tell from the get-go that everyone including you and me instantly noticed the tie which is absolutely fantastic. Outfits that have one stand out thing about excite me. These kind of outfits can often earn you nick names and get you noticed by some people who used to just look past you. The outfit is really simple and easy to replicate; it starts off with a plain navy blue 2 buttoned tailored fit suit with normal width lapels. Pair that with a plan white double or single cuffed shirt (I prefer double) and you have 99% of the suit wearing worlds outfit.

Here’s the fun part; grab yourself a brown woven belt & a nice medium width bright coloured polka dot tie. The great thing about wearing a plain navy blue suit, pretty much any other colour apart from blue fits perfectly. You can throw down a bright red polka dot tie or yellow striped tie, it wouldn’t matter much because it would just look fantastic either way. Once you decided on the tie, grab yourself a matching coloured flower pin, add some beaded bracelets and don’t forget your watch. Outfit done, probably in all under 20 minutes as well.
