Hello my friends, I’m back in the game… with a small delay of one week to be precise. But hey, here I am, all classy and sh*t. You might need some this summer! Think hot summer dates, business trips or the cliché summer weddings where you have to score a girl in case you didn’t already.
No need to worry for all the above, The Fashion Folio and Café Costume are here for you! This post is all about dressing classy yet casual and ready for any kind of occasion, all that in a costume with a few accessories. High performance, tropical fabrics is a collection for which Café Costume‘s Bruno Van Gils went on a hunt for fabrics and got inspired by Dutch explorer Abel Tasman. Apparently this dude suddenly set foot on Australian land back in 1642 and named it Tasmania. Finally, I know where that comes from! Café Costume decided to use Tasmanian wool in this collection which gives a very clear and vivid color result… Ain’t that puuuurfect for coming (hot) summer?
A few keywords on this awesome collection: hot model, earthy colors, preppy and a subtle mix and match of texture. I must say I like almost every silhouette but my favorites are New York, San Remo and Marrakech. Ties are so not the way to go lately… The bow tie or no tie are good substitutes and if you really want to go for casual class: suspenders! No nerdy situations anymore, believe me. Look at the pictures above and be inspired!
Anyway dudes, I know a costume isn’t something you buy everyday for a few euros… It’s a piece you should definitely invest in and I think here are some good ideas to find out what you like. I advise you to invest in two costumes: both warm and cold seasons need to be lived through in style and class!
