Marsala Inauguration :: Henley & Navy 508s

“Hi, my name is Kamari, and I am a style addict”. *group* “Hi Kamari”.

All jokes aside my wardrobe is an extension of who I am. I’m a little bit classic prep/hipster mixed with a bit rock-n-roll. I may not be the second coming of Nick Wooster but I know what makes me feel (and, look) good to me. My philosophy has always been to be well dressed, but “dance comfortable”. If I can’t dance and have a good time in my outfit trust and believe I will be changing. Even growing up I’ve never been too casual a dresser, I tend to stray away from sneakers and graphic tees etc. It’s my destiny to be a Dandy (minus the mustache), and I’ve come to accept it.

Essentially, what I am trying to say is live your truth, and don’t be afraid to let your clothes reflect that. As Gia Gunn would say “feel your oats”!

Perceived Style

My name is Kevin Kamari Foreman but you can call me Kam for short. I am a New York based up and coming designer/stylist. The idea to begin blogging about fashion came about over a glass of wine with a designer friend of mine Kenny M. at the end of 2013. I was showing him some of the looks I had put together for my birthday when he turned to me and said - "you have a good eye... maybe you should try getting into fashion yourself." That's when Perceived Style was born. I have an obsession with classic American prep, bodybuilding, grooming, beauty products, and fashion in general so it was a good fit for me. Before my blogging days I used to be very depressed, very overweight, self conscious, and constantly self-defeating myself. Fashion helped pull me out of that. It taught me to live life, love the skin I'm in, and care about what's on it. So when I was creating the blog it was easy to decide what it would be about. The main focus of Perceived Style is to inspire people to be comfortable in their own skin, to smile more, and to care more about their overall appearance using tips and photos. Job History: I used to work at BFCU in bethpage long island. Now I am the creative directior/CEO for Perceived Style and a freelance menswear designer as of June 2014. Education: I went to Farmingdale College for 2 years then moved to Hofstra for the last 2 years. I presently am taking continuing classing in blogging, fashion writing, and design. Interests: Art, Fashion Shows, Menswear, Shopping, Photography, Womens Fashion, and Food/Movies.
