As much as we believe fashion is about creativity and freedom of expression, there is sometimes a place for structure and order within the process too.
This week we received a question from one of our followers asking whether a waistcoat could be worn without a sports coat or jacket and it made us want to share some of our thoughts on fashion rules and regulations:
Tailor the Recipe
The old adage that says ‘Rules are made to be broken’ is one we all know well. While we wholeheartedly love the sentiment behind this, here at Morts and More, we would add that the rules should be broken in the right way.
Your office dress code may call for a business formal look each day but that doesn’t mean you can’t experiment with colours or textures. We’ve heard that you should never mix blue with black but we would argue that with the right hues and gradients, these can often complement each other beautifully.
Make a Statement
Going back to the question that was asked – wearing a waistcoat without a jacket isn’t a deal breaker for us – as long as it is done in the right way.
Waistcoats traditionally make up the acclaimed three-piece suit and so it isn’t quite a substitute to the look and feel of the full ensemble. With that in mind we think you can still make an impactful fashion statement with just your waistcoat.
