Acting Like It’s…

They say you should dress for the job that you want. But what about for seasons? Can you dress for the one that you want? While I’ve stated before my unwavering dedication to Winter and all the layers of clothing options it offers (although I am sick to death or muddy splattered shoes and trousers), as someone who grew up in a subtropical paradise I have a natural connection with summery clothes. Bold blocked colours, oversized sunglasses, loose trousers and probably most of all one of my go to pieces in the warmer months, a boxy cut short sleeved reverse collared shirt. So even though we are in the final month of winter and it is currently 7 degrees outside, you wouldn’t know it from the rails of clothing in stores jammed with shorts, t-shirts and sandals that all conjure up memories of warmer times. The Spring/Summer collections are well and truly here, so why can’t I be? So here is to me dressing like Spring has arrived with this 3.1 Phillip Lim shirt I picked up from Harvey Nichols last week, even if I still have to cocoon up in a coat also from Phillip Lim, I’m going to be out there acting like the sun is here.

    My god! This is so good! After having a taste of spring weather out in LA I am so ready for some warmth too! Revere collar shirts or “Cuban papi” shirts (lol) as I like to call them are my jam too!

    Hi Luke!
    Your outfit is perfect as usual, I especially love the shirt. I miss the colder weather since it’s so hot here in Florida most of the time. xx

    I am glad I stopped by after seeing your amazing Insta post about this look. I love every piece you are showing here especially that coat. I am definitely not a winter person and luckily I also live in warmer climate so I can only imagine that long and cold winter feeling. Can’t wait to see more of your spring/summer looks, Luke.

    I must say, Luke, you epitomize what I adore in a stylish man. You look classy and sleek, yet with a twist of street and edge. I haven’t reacted to it before, but your slogan “I came, I saw, I wore, I conquered” is exactly what this post is all about. You conquering the fashion world, post by post!

    Fantastic look buddy! You’re always dressed the part. Despite living in Barcelona which experiences mostly sunny days in winter, i am so ready to ditch my winter clothes in favour of shorts and little else! Hopefully warmer weather is on the way for you soon!
