5 Ways to Match Whiskey and Fashion
Whiskeys come in a variety of colours and shades like brown, scarlet red, gold or yellow hue. Clothes of these colours combined with appropriate matching colours is an easy and inexpensive way of having Whiskey-fashion in your casual dresses. You may also consider having the logos of your favourite breweries, which adds to the design. Even a simple and catchy quote of whiskey love will do the job. For example on the colour combination, look at the picture below. This is the costume in Kingsman: The Golden Circle, this design by Arianne Phillips gives a classic example of our statement. Look at the costume of Colin Firth (in the middle). His formals along with the overcoat look cool. His light brown coat reminds of a bottle of Brown-Forman, with its collar like froth.
#2 Design of the dress
This one is applicable especially for women. Women clothing comes in a wide variety allowing maximum alterations and creativity. The design may be as simple as a plain T-shirt with a catchy quote to complicated ones like step-cut dresses with classy whiskey colour combinations. It can also be a plain short skirt with the scene of a brewery on it, just like the ones below.
Even Accessories can show off your whiskey preferences. Accessories perform two functions – firstly, they enhance the look and design of your dress and secondly, they help you to express yourself better. It might be as simple as a chain or a necklace with a pendant having the scenery of a brewery or bottles of whiskey and so on. It might also be a necklace with a thematic colour combination of your favourite brand. For example, if you are a big fan of Glenfiddich, you could have a necklace with the Glenfiddich logo of a colour that matches your dress. Here is a childish tip- if your name or the name of your loved one starts with an H, you could take a Highland Logo instead of the Glenfiddich one for the pendant.
Fashion is incomplete without jewellery. There is much jewellery related to whiskey that is available. This helps you to show off your love for whiskey. You may want to try things like silver rings featuring whiskey barrel, or a wooden pendant made of whiskey barrel. Take a look at the ring here.
