Street Meets Formal

The evolution of fashion, where street meets formal. No longer does a extended scoop need to be paired only with joggers or jeans but now can be layered under a fitted, custom suit.

In this post, I bring to you a different look. A look that some would call fusion, urban style, or simply put, unconventional. The pairing you'll see is somewhat out of the ordinary and brings together two different styles. The combination of the two create a perfect pairing between street and formal. 

I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to collaborate with the talented team at Parer (@parerdesign). Parer Clothing is not just about comfort with a touch of luxury; it's a lifestyle.  Parer works to create designs that represent the team's influences, ideals, and love for fashion. The brand prides itself in creativity and originality, and promises to deck out its customers. With parallel ideologies and promises to our customer base, together, we decided to put a spin on things and share with you something fun and funky!

Traditionally, we would see an extended scoop tee worn similar to how Jai's rocking it. Many are used to pairing a scoop tee with joggers or jeans, sometimes layered with a sweater or button up, and topped with a jacket (as seen above). Jai told me that he was comfortable and still felt stylish rocking both Parer's charcoal scoop and mist grey joggers paired with a hoodie and bomber style jacket. This look combines comfort and style and can be worn while kicking back at home, running errands, seeing friends for a casual night out or traveling. 

I decided to dress my Parer scoop tee a little differently. In one of my custom blazers and a pair of casual dress pants, I replaced what would usually be my dress shirt with my white scoop tee. And as mandatory for a Styled By Harj outfit, you see a splash of colour with matching turban, lapel pin and Dapper By Harj pocket square. This outfit is great to mix things up on a night out on the town, date night, or even at a family outing.
