3 BEST BLAZER COMBINATIONS FOR THE ALPHA MALE

The sartorial classic list will always have this one item which has been the game changer for most of the occasions: A Blazer. Job interviews, first date, weekend brunch and it goes on.

But styling one isn’t always easy. Indeed, too many men spend valuable time trying to pair a blazer and trousers – time they could be using to do more important things like, you know, playing video games.

Pezalli has compiled this handy list of the best blazer-trouser combinations, so you can spend less time deciding what to wear and more time wearing it.

 

Navy Blazer + Beige Chinos

The universal choice, a blind pick and  an undisputed champion. If this combination of two quintessential menswear colours can’t make you look good, then we’re not sure what else will.

A structured blazer and a sports jacket- honours the look pretty well. Colour code: NAVY (we say NAVY, not midnight or royal blue) and let the occasion dictate your choice of chinos: flat-front for casual dress codes; pleat-front for something that’s a touch smarter.

Tweed/Wool Blazer + Jeans

Life is not always about suits and boots. (Though boots look good). For the times when pocket square bewilders you and lapel game dulls you- rough your things up as you go from subtler halls to tougher towns.

A textured  wool blazer with jeans (personal favourite) won’t make you look off the place while ensuring your debonair doesn’t slip.

Patterned Blazer + Neutral Trousers

OK, so the blazer is sometimes boring, we get it. Well let’s accept the fact straight- if a plain colour style has already started working as a sedative, then perk your look up with some pattern.

It doesn’t have to be much – just a subtle check like the etched windowpane or even a chalk-stripe is enough to break the fashion monotone. Go for ‘not so fancy’ combinations till you attain the Jared Leto status!

STYLE GUIDE INDEX

Style is something very individual, very personal. Everyone, we believe, in their own way is stylish. You may not speak as much as your dressing sense does it for you. Pezalli brings to you ‘the Style guide index.’ With each one having its distinct traits and characters, read on to know more which truly defines you

The Charming:

Cashmere, silk, velvet, dress shirts with French cuffs and great importance on finer details: the romantic personalities tend to dress appropriately for the occasion. This brand conscious category exude richness and make sure that people around notice them as well. Well how often do you see Mr SRK and Ryan Gosling donning a well-groomed and tidy hairstyle? Every time! There you have your Romantic style icons to look up to then.

Corporate Clan:

You are the ‘I-like-it-the-Savile-Row-way’ person, business wear is your everyday comfort and you opt for classic colour combinations, call yourself a Classic Personality then. You like to appear well turned-out for the occasions and you prefer ageless perfection over fashion accessories. A quality classic wristwatch & casual but a refined, formal look is all that you need to share the Classic style personality line along with George Clooney and Tom Cruise.

Creative Wizards:

Next we have is the Creative style personality. They have a flair for experiments, are unpredictable and may fall in the list of artists or poets. You are a fun with your wardrobe and never fear the opinion of others! The Caribbean Pirate from Hollywood and the Bollywood Shehenshah are the most celebrated creative style icons. Known for their brave style combinations and Expressionism, they are, in a true sense the Creatives of the Style World.

The Trend setters:

Remember Ranveer Singh’s floral fetish and an equally upright moustache mania? The loud Bollywood lad defines the next category of the style personality: Dramatic. The serious fashion followers are the dramatic group of the style personalities. You love shopping to the core and socializing too. And you equally love head-turners gazing at you. Practically pondering, Practicality is not a consideration for you! ‘Style seriously and enjoy’ is the style mantra for the Dramatic personality enthusiasts.

P.S. Add Russell Brand in the list too.

The Naturalists:

Nothing is more easy yet defining other than the naturalists. The fifth style personality is way more relaxing and subtle: The Natural style personality. Grooming comes as a necessary chore for you. That’s Salman Khan, if you don’t think that celebrities don’t believe in naturalistic appeal. There’s nothing wrong in choosing practicality over making statement and the Natural style personalities know it the best. Casual & sportswear make up most of your wardrobe. Favourite footwear: Trainers and sandals. Natural personalities hardly debate over the choice of clothes and often wear whatever is at hand.

3 Colours you never thought you could Wear

“A wardrobe without black and navy is not a wardrobe”, said a man who avoided vivid colours like the plague.

There’s a reason why men escape colour coding. And it’s because they don’t want to look like a box of crayons trying to make their way through the rows of greys and blues.

Pezalli is here to expand your colour palette and add some statement pieces in the list. So next time when you find yourself dwindling between the blue and the black, make sure you don’t choose any of them.

Pink

When we say pink, you don’t always have to go imagining Nicky Minaj’s underwear or Barbie’s streaks. The vibrant colour is breaking the stereotype and has already booked its position in the modern man’s wardrobe.

Now’s the time, however, to rediscover pink’s not so feminine charms. A bubble gum shade is not in the list. Go for subtler ones like peach, rose and salmon. (Trying a vibrant shade is not a crime, but go for minimal additions initially, such as a neck tie and later strive for a double-breasted jacket)

Washed out pinks carry a different style statement than vibrant pinks. Earthy tones go well with faded pieces such as washed denims.

Corporate torsos need not worry. We got ample of pinks to pep up the formal dressing. Pair up a salmon pink banker collar with your grey 3-piece. Voila! Y’all set to rock at workplace.

Green

Popularly known as the ‘new’ black in the circuit, green is going places: from jackets to full suits. A green for your suit is not the one which you see in the park. Green also reads less obviously gendered than other bright colours. So, unlike pink, you can pile it on without fear of prompting digs from your mates.

A starter pack to green usually starts with military olive. A suede sports jacket or a pair of trousers in this colour is a win-win situation: they’re both trending and won’t ever fall apart if paired with right amount of earthy tones.

Try building your wardrobe around the earth tones. Reason being, it takes a very little effort to pair them up together. Count on to deep reds, blues (yes you have to use this) and light neutrals to make green go the extra mile.

Yellow

The idea is to introduce a colour without making you look like a canary. It stands on the ground of being a little tricky to pair, but far too expressive and powerful when it comes to adding it in your wardrobe.

When we say yellow, we definitely mean mustard and to some extent chrome yellow too. A double- breasted jacket works well with neutrals, while a trouser would go well with stark, say navy combinations.

It’s just as important on the inside as on the outside. Unless you are way too ready for experiments, go for less visible pieces instead of a full suit. Or if you don’t want the overpowering yellow to be the odd one in the crowd, work it out with the layering technique. It’s hard to imagine yellow in a subtle role, but pocket squares and ties have always been in the scene and trust us, you got to have one of the sets.

In a nutshell, yellow has finally seen the dawn of wardrobes, crawling slowly up from the streets to a little more refined version.

P.S.: A little tan may work best while showing off your new yellow picks.
