    The Art of Formal Dressing! 

    “There is a means of playing safe, there is a way of using tricks and there is the way I like to play, which is precariously, where you’re going to take an opportunity on making errors as a way to create something you haven’t created before.” – Dave Brubeck

    In the art of producing Jazz, but in the nuances used to generate the persona of the artist Dave Brubeck’s words perfection lies not in Jazz artist. Thus, dressing sharply significantly contributes in creating an illusion of the composition that is flawless. As a melting pot of African and American compositions, Jazz is the only music form that cannot be identified.

    The 1920s saw a growing popularity of its evolution. Impeccable dressing of the artists accentuated the notes of guitar, banjo, piano and trumpets. Attending a concert meant placing your finest ‘Suit’ forward. For a live Jazz performance, the universal language of suits became tacit attire as music and trend amalgamated. The infusion of technology over the years has not been successful in snitching essence of a performance. It continues to stay the only form of music that is not complete without formal dressing that is apt. Wearing only any suit isn’t okay, get it right and enjoy the jazz vibe.

    Intimate Jazz Gathering

    An artist seeks no flattery, aside from the heartfelt applause of the connoisseurs.
    At a live set up, opt for an official suit with subtle details to differentiate it from the remainder.
    Choose for variants of gray and tan blazer paired with trousers or nicely fitted chinos.
    Add a touch of colour with teal or blue accessories. Ditch the waist coat on accessorizing the lapel with lapel pins that are new and focus.
    Live Concert

    By performing live in front of a massive crowd, groundwork is required.
    By choosing the perfect formal attire communicate your regard.
    Choose a three piece suit with five buttoned waist coat. A classic double breasted suit would also fit the bill.
    Select classic pinstripes with tapered trousers and woven leather shoes.
    Cufflinks in instrumental motifs, silk tie with a matching pocket square will set you in the mood.
    On a Romantic Date

    The symphony of a Jazz getaway is an ideal set up for a romantic date.
    Dress to compliment your magnificent partner and the music.
    A black or navy suit in peak lapel works best. Jazz divine the dress will be romanticized by cufflink and silk ties.
    Do not go in accessorizing, while appreciating the music do take off a minute to look into her eyes and keep it uncomplicated.
