I think if I were truly uninhibited and dressing to my taste, I would be a dandy. The dandy aesthestic, with its crisp shirts, vintage blazers, bow ties, and polished brogues.

Add a red or purple lip and picked out However a fear of being overdressed often prevents me from going all in on any dandy look.

Don't they look amazing? And those beautiful locs too ....
