Came to the realization recently that I still have a very low affinity for legitimate formal wear, mostly because I don't really attend a lot of formal events. This is an outfit I wore to attend my college's ball. Every year, to mark the end of our own brand of hell week, also known as architecture week, the student council hosts a fancy ball, which I've never attended until this year. The theme this time around was "Cruise" and I had no idea what it meant. The fashion blogger in me thought that maybe they meant for it to be nautical? With that in mind, this was the outfit that I came up with. Read on for more details!
Went for a more laid-back aesthetic because I've never tried it before for formal wear. Accented the outfit with a nautical-inspired belt just to show my tiny effort to conform with the theme.
My trusty TVRUS Navigator watch to match my nautical belt.
Currently my favorite pair of leather shoes. I really wish Milanos would release something similar in black as I am in dire need of black school shoes. Haha!
MALDITA Man button-down, UNIQLO blazer and slacks, MILANOS brogues, TVRUS watch, Penshoppe belt.
Would you try this look?
