The suit wrapped in a puffer vest

Greetings BusiChic!

It’s July 1 today which means that we, in the southern hemisphere, are slap-bang in the middle of winter.

I’m a keen user of Instagram where I came across the style of Adam Tsen -freelance Melbourne-based fashion designer who works part-time at Hugo Boss as a suit/style consultant. Check out his fashion-forward creative Corporate style that offers blokes an alternative to the coat!

Rather than a jacket, Adam Tsen keeps warm in winter by layering an ASOS vest and scarf over his Hugo Boss suit.
