It’s Friday night. Your phone rings. It’s Anna Wintour and she wants to take you to dinner. Quick, what do you wear?: After shaking the confusion, I’d probably go black slacks, grey herringbone blazer and tie. Oh, and blue shirt.
In 200 words or less, tell us how you can contribute a fresh perspective to Capitol Hill Style.
Men’s fashion has seen such a huge resurgence in the last few years. Men are taking more care in their dress, designers are producing much more approachable pieces for everyday wear and the general attitude is that looking great isn’t for just for the ladies any more. While Capitol Hill Style is an incredibly female-centric blog, a fresh male view will bring in more readers and balance out the content. As a young, recent college graduate, I can help with the daunting transition from collegiate wear (don’t get me started) to professional style, all while maintaining a youthful enthusiasm for clothes, colors and cuts. Menswear is built on subtlety, whether it is fit and taper to the width and design of lapels. I can catch the distinctions and maintain a sense of style that remains both on-trend and timelessly American.
