This past weekend, I had the pleasure of attending one of the most amazing networking events ever, The Empowerment Social.
The day was filled with networking, drinks, food, speakers featured at the top of every hour, and of course a good turn-up dancing to hit songs by the DJ in between speaker presentations.
The dress code was “Brunch Fly” so I could not wait to dress up for this event. Just the “Brunch Fly” name alone excited me!
Since we had the luxury of having rain all weekend in NYC it was only right that black was my go-to color for the day.
When I initially heard “Brunch Fly”, the first thing that came to my mind was a blazer and skinny jeans. I decided to pair this with a black sweater and a white polka dot button down shirt to give me a pop of color. I finished the outfit with a gray and black bag that I love to carry all the time (her name is Monica).
Some advice to all the Big & Tall men: don’t be afraid to wear skinny jeans with a blazer… and yes I said skinny jeans. Pairing a blazer with a skinny jean actually aligns your body correctly to give you a nice shape, and you will actually feel leaner and lighter.
