Amber Doyle Look 3

3. 70’s Swank

“The third outfit makes me think of New York in the 1970’s – something Jimi Hendrix would have worn, maybe. It’s a little Biba’s Rainbow Room, a little Studio 54…

Plush Bordeaux cotton velvet with leather knotted buttons.”

“As for the jewelry, the black silk tassel earrings are my own design, an ode to Catherine Baba, one of my style icons.

I’m also wearing a skull ring by Ryan Matthew and a silver/black stone ring that’s a family heirloom (it was a gift from my grandfather to my grandmother on a family vacation in the 1950’s…it’s so precious to me, I refuse to take it off).”

I hope this post will not only inspire our female readers to explore tailored menswear, but also our male readers to draw inspiration from stylish women.

After all, fashion is a women’s game and on their side there is far less “fear” and “restriction”. For example, Amber takes her color stories, pattern mixing, and texture combos to another level.

Watch and learn.
