Style | WALL FLOWER

Wall Flower Duane Bacon Blogger H&M Fashion Pull Over Look Book Blog Blogger TopMan Cotton On

Wall Flower, few overlooked this clothing style due to it’s simplicity, Polo Shirts underneath a cozy Kitted Pullover, This is the common look for Yuppies or even students coz all the ensembles are already available, all you need is a good Pullover(aka Sweatshirt et al) that supports the image you want to project. As the usual High School Moto goes “Simplicity is Beauty”, but how come not all can pull off this kind of look?

 

For Ectomorphs or SKINNY GUYS like me, I really prefer “KNITTED” pullovers since it

builds up volume and helps us look like we gained a little haha, anyway, in this blog I summed up all my opinions every time I help a friend have this kind of look.

1) RIGHT FIT

Personally, this is always the first thing I consider when I work on my looks, in this guide, there are 2 things you need to know:

a) Inner Shirt should be “your exact fit”(not to loose, not to fit)

b) Sweatshirts should always be:
b.1 a size bigger than your Polo = Makes you look Smart
b2 two size bigger = Makes you look Preppy

b2 Three size bigger = It will now depends on your Confidence and Sex Appeal πŸ˜€

This will create the right silhouette, which makes people unconsciously notice first in your outfit, and it could be the Ice Berg you just created your self to drown your Titanic.

2) SAFE COLOR COMBINATION

Most of the time, this set the mood πŸ˜€ you can go Black and White or Color Coordinated, but for a safer set, here is what I usually pair.

  1. If you wanna be safe, go for the staple combination “White Inner + Black/Brown Pants + Any Colored Sweatshirt”
  2. If you prefer loud colored Sweatshirts; I suggest go for “Black Shoes and Pants”
  3. checkered/Plaid Inners should go with “Plain Sweatshirt” as long as they stay in the same shade then “Black Shoes and Pants”.

3) WHERE ARE YOU WEARING THIS?

The Venue contributes to where you can wear this (OPTIONAL), This is the part where you’ll use God’s gift of LOGIC πŸ˜€

Yes! I’ve noticed a number of guys wear this look on a totally wrong venue, pls dont wear this in a place that you know you’ll SWEAT a lot like Partying or under a SUNNY DAY, on a Non Air Bus, especially Philippines is a “Forever Summer” Country so please πŸ˜€

I hope I didnt waste your time πŸ˜€ Thank you For Reading πŸ˜€
