Your Guide to Recognizing Modern Dandy

Sunday, 14 November 2010

modern dandyIn the modern world, the concept of dandyism is very broad, in fact, so broad that the original definition of dandy - a man who affects extreme elegance in clothes and manners - seems obsolete; modern dandies are metrosexual men who are highly concerned about their exterior. However, unlike metrosexuals who blindly follow fashion trends, dandies are much more complex: they are trendsetters who can appreciate a stylish wardrobe, but at the same time bend the rules and conventions to suit their exquisite taste.

One of the finest specimens of this fashion-savvy urban dweller is Christian Thompson, Simon Baker's character in The Devil Wears Prada. A famous writer, a man about town and a gentleman, Thompson is the ultimate dandy, with refined manners, elegant clothes and a long scarf carelessly tied around his neck. In real life, the title of modern dandy may be applied to some Hollywood celebrities such as Johnny Depp, Brad Pitt, Collin Farrell and David Beckham. However, while their look is often a result of stylist's efforts, ordinary men have to invest in the proper dandy wardrobe. Some wardrobe staples that can make any man a dandy will probably be enough.

Dandy wardrobe is not limited to formal wear, it includes many casual pieces. However, a proper jacket can go a long way in creating the look of the modern dandy. Being a traditional formal wear staple, a jacket may become a part of the casual outfit owing to its loose fit and bold colors. If a solid color jacket can be worn with formal trousers for a classic elegant look, trendy casual plaid or striped jackets are a perfect match for jeans and polo shirt. One of the latest Bottega Veneta collections for men, for example, featured jackets of brick-red and orange, while the highlights of Giorgio Armani collection were elegant striped blazers in combination with solid gray pants along with light blue coats of fine linen worn with sports-style trousers. Moreover, Armani suggests wearing jackets with sports shirts and hoodies. Gucci's modern dandy look is based on the combination of elegant white dress suits, brightly printed shirts and contrasting black ties.

A high-quality, preferably, cashmere coat is a must-have in the wardrobe of any modern dandy. Owing to the limitless choice offered by the modern fashion designers and brands, coat has turned into stylish outerwear which can be donned both with formal suit or tuxedo for the evening out, or with more casual clothes for day wear. The coat may be formal, of the classic cut, - long, with an elegant peaked collar, as seen in Calvin Klein or Gucci collections, - or casual, of relaxed fit. Many designers were affected by the military trend, so it's no wonder that Marc Jacobs, Gap, Michael Kors and others included military-inspired coats into their menswear collections.

Accessories, from scarves and headwear to gloves now have permanent residence in the wardrobe of modern dandies, as fashion-savvy men can be recognized predominantly by carefully selected accessories which can dress up a most casual outfit and give it a touch of personal flair. Moreover, given that being fashionable is getting easier every year and fashion is getting more accessible, accessorizing becomes an art form which has to be mastered by a modern dandy.

You can pick up accessories to complement even a formal suit: in the new Moschino menswear collection formal suits are accessorized with neckties of bold colors and Trilby hats. Bottega Veneta menswear line is distinguished by the elaborate use of scarves and brightly-colored neckwear - aquamarine blue, red, and malachite green, while Dolce&Gabbana introduced men to the concept of clutch bags which can be a perfect match both for formal and casual wear.
