Styling Oriental-Style Print : #OOTD in Lisbon

Words: Yours truly • Photos: David • Location: Jardim Botanico Tropical, Belém

Let’s get the formality out of the way : if you’re reading this from the UK, happy Bank Holiday! Otherwise, I hope you’re having a terrific day nonetheless.

Now here’s a confession : I’m not very good at fashion-blogging when I travel. As in, I rarely ever blog about my travel outfits these days, but as it was my birthday trip, I felt I had to post at least one OOTD post from Portugal to remember what I wore – so here’s one I shot in Lisbon… more specifically, Belém.

But times have changed, male fashion is now considered just as big a deal as its counterpart. The new digital age has introduced me to a whole new load of e-resources I can turn to when I need a doze of mens style inspo. Continue Reading
