ASK THE EXPERT
In the world of fashion, few are as seasoned as Donny Galella. From hat-making to styling the stars, Donny offers a treasure trove of advice for the spring dressing. Remember, it's all in the details, and ensuring your look complements your personality.
The classic black and white remains a dominant theme for many race days. But there's room to play; grey checks and charcoal are welcome additions. Whether you're dressing for a formal get-together or another premier event, remember: A tonal floral tie or whisky-brown loafers can add flair to your monochrome ensemble.
The Main Event
Spring events demand a standout style statement. While blue suits remain a timeless choice, introducing playful ties, lapel pins, and pocket squares can elevate your look. For a subtle and refined look, pair a patterned blazer with chinos.
Spring is a season that invites a splash of boldness. Embrace bold blazers, coloured chinos, and shirts that focus on elevated details. Style with accessories that accentuate your existing outfit colours.
If going for vibrant colours isn’t the look you’re going for, you can opt for muted and flowery styles instead. Explore a palette of light greys, pastel pinks, and subtle floral patterns. A checked grey suit combined with a light pink shirt offers a balanced and refined look. And remember, suit separates are always an option.
Spring Suiting Separates
With your Spring calendar filling up, the charm of suit separates becomes evident. Double-breasted jackets paired with chinos and a sharp shirt can keep your look effortless and elegant. And never underestimate the impact of a well-chosen textured tie or pocket square.
No outfit is complete without the right footwear. From classic Oxfords to suede Derbies, the choices are endless. Lately, tassel loafers have been catching the attention, offering both style and comfort. Remember to always check event dress codes, but don't be afraid to express your personality through your shoes.
The Impact of Spring Weather on Style Choices
Spring can be unpredictable. Be ready for both the sun's warmth and sudden showers. Lightweight, breathable fabrics like linen and wool can keep you comfortable. Ensure you opt for spring suits that are adaptable to the changing climate.
2023/24 sees a resurgence of boutonnieres, tie clips, and sunglasses. Accessories can make or break an outfit, so choose pieces that complement rather than overpower your look.
