If you have an appreciation like I do for menswear, then being around an individual like Allen will definitely take it to a new level. In menswear nothing is too little to ignore (look at me sounding all knowing), from color code to proportions, it almost makes it seem very stiff and very ”rule” centered from a distance but if you look closely it’s all nothing but art if you ask me. I have come to appreciate the little big things about menswear so much that it has found its way into my personal wardrobe. _ Dita
People don’t take casual Friday too seriously form what I have observed. The license to dress down obviously got taken too seriously by some. It’s refreshing to get out of the stiff working wardrobe and show up to work in something more relaxed but still sharp enough to kick ass and take names at the office.
After meeting the creative director of the newbie fashion house Tuedor & Wright backstage at the recently held Ghana fashion week, she was kind enough to bless us with our favorite piece from her latest collection. The lace t-shirt was an immediate favorite, the graphic print makes it very hard not to love this effort from Tuedor and Wright. The brand is working on a menswear edition which is scheduled to launch soon, until then I have to control my envy whenever Dita struts around in hers.
In my opinion I think DITA is one of the best dressed women online; I say that because first of all she is my girlfriend and the fact that she has an uncanny ability to channel both women and menswear with impeccable execution makes it hard to ignore my claim. Dita seems to have a multiple personality syndrome when it comes to her wardrobe, that’s the only way I can explain her ability to command her ‘’girly’’ clothes and still manage to channel menswear better than most men I know.
I feel very blessed to have someone whose style syncs with mine so effortlessly , too often me and Dita find ourselves in love with similar pieces which I totally blame on her love for menswear inspired clothing and fit. On the day of the festival, an oxford shirt and a pair of shorts seemed like the perfect easy-go outfit for the sunny afternoon, guess who showed up thinking the same.
