Spring Dandy :: Linen Check & Butterfly Tie

While I thoroughly enjoy spring trends, I try not to indulge in them too much..if at all. However, this season I came into some season-less on trend pieces.Getting the chance to stock up on new looks (especially bold colors) for me is rare, but slowly becoming a necessity for me, especially as I’m re-doing my budget coupled with an impending move. I finally got the opportunity to do some shopping online… and shop I did.

Eventhough, it wasn’t intentional, I ended up grabbing a bunch of blues, creams, and marsala (one of my absolute favorite winter colors). I guess the trends got the best of me this time lol. Here’s a few of the pieces I snagged. What would you wear with some of the pieces?

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.
