Gingham & Crop

Cropping off the haters in this cropped denim number. A fun way to incorporate fun when busy weeks come about. 

Hey Dappers!
This week has been a busy one so far, with school, friendly catch-ups, and personal errands that need to be met nonstop. Consequently i’ve been living in basic tees and worn-out sneaks 24/7. Oy.
I’ve been loving the cropped denim trend (think Vetements) as of late. They offer an elevated allure to any outfit with its offbeat length and freshly tapered fit. When the weekly schedules start to drag, I most certainly gravitate to throw n’ go basics (who doesn’t?) to avoid any wishy-washy fashion fiasco. You know what I mean?
Well, this cropped denim has certainly helped me break the cyclical approach to busy-boy dressing by incorporating fun, casual elements to a boring look. It has become an everyday classic, surpassing the trendy-ness of it all. In other words, this baby will stay for many years to come. 
I paired it with a gingham shirt from Thomas Mason and a lovely pair of Florsheim driving loafers to contrast the casual with crisp details. In true Ian fashion, I tucked the shirt halfway for that unexpected zest. Gotta love a nice clash, no?


Shop the look below:
Denim: Old Navy (old pair that I DYI’d –similar here)
