Neutral River :: Floral Button Down & Vintage Loafers

We’re already a few days into April and the days are already flying by. Now that fashion week is long over, it didn’t take me too long to revert back into my Shopaholic ways. Although, I am not one to gravitate toward a print, this shirt spoke to me. The slight peek-a-boos of yellow combined with the muted blue tones are very on trend. The classic shape is reminiscent of a great button down I love and sadly don’t have any more. They didn’t have my size at River Island so I grabbed it online and I’m very satisfied. It may not be a staple for my capsule, but I’m very happy I splurged on it!

Have you guys gotten into neutrals for spring yet? How would you style this shirt?

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.
