Once again, it’s that time of the year where the whole country comes to a standstill as we take on the biggest horse racing, music, and fashion event on the SA calendar. This year’s Durban July has been themed “The colour of magic”. A broad theme right? It leaves us with no other option but to be creative.
We’ve put together a few looks you can use to inspire your outfit for the day:
For a look that screams elegance and panache; we’ve ensembled a tuxedo look. Traditionally the fabric and colour of your bow tie should match that of the lapel on your tuxedo jacket but a Mkm man is daring and creative. Instead of a plain bow tie, pair your tux up with this tribal printed bow tie and the perfect item to compliment it is the printed pocket square.
The Modern Dandy
With all due respect to blazers and dress pants/chinos, there’s no substitute for a suit.
When you wear this navy double breast suit, you’ll feel a confidence that only a well fitted Mkm suit can bring. Dark shades such as navy create a strong backdrop for shirts, ties and pocket squares. To interpret the theme, we’ve paired up this look with a pink, polka dot tie… magical, isn’t it?
The beauty of a suit is that you can dress it up, down or even dress it sideways. Keeping the theme in mind, this look is completed by the marble print shirt which compliments the burgundy suit, giving a more youthful and playful feel to your outfit. This look will definitely turn eyes as you interact with your mates at the Durban July.
