What is polar fleece and why?

Polar fleece is a finish,type of manufacturing a synthetic fabric named polyester.

It is a staple for long cold weather period and it can also be worn during transitional period.

Polar fleece or simply polar is warm,durable and easy to combine.

It is one of the IT industry favourites but it can be seen among other proffesions too.

The best colours of a fleece are grey,dark khaki green,maroon and navy.

There are hot debates whether it should be called sweatshirt or a jacket.

Styles can be covered as zip,half-zip,quarter-zip or even a hoodie.

It is very popular in the extreme sports such as hiking and it has useful properties.

It is easy to layer and it doesn't require additional layer on it (except winter jacket).

Traditional layering consist of polyester training shirt,polar fleece and then winter jacket.

During transitional period instead of winter jacket put overcoat on top of the fleece.

Bold ones can use car coat too instead of overcoat.

Some of the stylish gurus wear dress shirts and ties underneath polar.

Why is polar fleece underrated?

Answer to the question is that the fashion industry predominately forces ties and dress shirts.

Polar is considered by many as a layer during winter but it seems not too stylish.

The reason is probably because it's hard to find polar fleece without big manufacturing logos.

It is firstly skiing friendly apparel and then after that it can be used as a stylish item.

Some of the people don't wear fleece at all but prefer rather to put wool jumper on them.

Jumpers are heavy during transitional period and that's when polar comes into the play.

Places to wear polar are big cold mountain tops,Palo Alto officesand casual cofee shops.

Fleece is labeled as office casual style,street casual when worn as hoodie or a sport apparel.


Dressy casual explained SIMPLE DRESS CODE REVEALED

                    Pop art exhibition #heritagehouse #kućalegata #belgrade #beograd  22.3.2018.

                    On the picture is author of this blog Aleksandar Kovrlija in dressy casual style.

                      He wears black Chelsea boots,navy suit,navy dress shirt and black waistcoat.

                  What is dressy casual style?         

 Dressy casual is a form of dress code that stays between business casual and semi-formal.

 It requires experience and detail oriented approach to be pulled off effectively.

 Simple example is stated above in the picture.

 Typical matching consists of a lounge suit (navy preffered,do not go with the black suit,    

 black suits give funeral look,leave black monochromatic look for women to play with it, 

 black elegance looks good on females,navy suit gives men power and energy),

 black shoes (in this case I wear black Chelsea boots because they give me flexibility being 

 formal and casual shoes at the same time,you can try combinations with black derby shoes,

 I would stay away from brogued wingtips while being dressy casual),navy dress shirt 

 (must have in the male wardrobe,you can try with white dress shirt or light blue shirt) 

 and black waistcoat (you can go without waistcoat if you want). 

Importance of dressy casual is impecable.

Style comes from West and is also worn in Europe.

It gives that feel of maturity and it is not recommended to be worn with tie.

Ties give more business causal or even smart casual look in that case.

You want to find the right balance.

       Dressy casual during cold days and winter

                    Simple layering with navy coat jacket during cold weather secures good.  

Yes,it was almost end of the March (third week of a month actually) but it was cold outside. 

No matter how good your combination is,you need to layer yourself properly.

I added navy coat jacket  so I am warm and comfortable also during bad weather.

This can give you the freedom to unbutton coat jacket during daily climate oscilations.

Don't go with the camo puffer jacket over dressy casual outfit during winter.

It will make you look unstylish and non articulate.

Layer your dressy casual style with navy coat (formal) or navy coat jacket (formal and casual).
