Smart Casual - Tropical Edition
In Miami with collaboration with Gant. Miami has got to be one of my favourite cities!! Everywhere you look there are bronzed bodies in bikinis and pastel-pink and baby blue Art Deco architecture, with a certain caribbean or little Havana swagger. The food, shopping and art galleries in this town are world class! I wore this outfit yesterday to a party at Soho House Miami - an uber cool London members - only club. Its has a 1940 Cuban lounge fell to it, with a private beach & a rooftop pool overlooking the Ocean.
I definitely wanted to wear something comfortable and fresh. In August its particularly hot & humid in South Beach. Leaving you with the dilemma of : What to actually wear when its 100 degrees outside and you still need to look put together?... Just looking at the palm trees and feeling the warm breeze, nothing else but a white t- shirt comes to mind..
A white t-shirt with rolled up sleeves, coordinated with shades of navy blue, white & brown was that fresh & classic 1950's style I was going for. The navy travel pants are from Gant's Diamond collection. The pants are actually part of a suit - named "The travel suit" for its remarkable ability to never get wrinkled due to its lightweight fabric - purposely built for all types of travel situations.
I am a personal fan of these pants because of the classic yet contemporary fit. The pants have that classic high-waisted 1950's Marlon Brando look with a contemporary Scandinavian twist- all ankles bared. Perfect paired with espadrilles or your favourite brown loafers.
