Dress Up Your Denim, Dress Down Your Suit
There’s no easier way to dress down a stuffy outfit than with a denim jacket. The combo brings a sense of casual ease while still looking put together. Despite what JT says, sometimes it’s just not appropriate to show up in a full suit. Loosen the tie to complete the look.

MWD Required Viewing: Kavinsky’s ‘Protovision’
Coming from the maker of the iconic synth-laced intro theme to one of our favorite movies Drive, Kavinsky shows here that he’s ready to take the wheel. It could have easily become a Drive knockoff, and there are certainly similarities, but this video is done in a style all its own and executed to perfection. Props to director Marcus Herring for the extended 80’s chase sequence featuring a badass vintage red Ferrari Testarossa. The video also showcases Kavinsky donning a varsity jacket and old-school Nike kicks that’ll make you want to ebay your last paycheck away. Watch and lust.

This is a great resource to develop your fashion vocabulary so you know what you’re wearing.
