Bing Busts Fashion Myths: Waistcoats and Pants
Fashion was once thought of to be a world of strict rules and trends. Perhaps you’ve been taught not to mix your browns and your blacks, or you’ve been told that plaid on plaid must go. But the Qwears say, with the right eye and attitude, you can pull anything off. And now Bing will show you how. - Un Petit Mot De Sonny
Anonymous asked: “Ok, so just how big of a faux pas is it to wear a waistcoat and pants that don’t match? Or a waistcoat and jacket that don’t match? I have a silver waistcoat and the only dress pants I own are black so I tend to wear them together.”
In terms of size, this faux pas is microscopic! Mixing waistcoats, pants, & blazers is actually a great way to break up the monotony! By mixing different colored pants & waistcoat you create a more fun & creative look to your ensemble.

Yes, a single tone suit is gorgeous and I wouldn’t dare say that it’s boring (in fear that Neil Patrick Harris will murder me in my sleep) BUT it IS safe.
If you’re looking for a little adventure in your wardrobe, mix your patterns, mix your colors, mix everything!
