If the Peaky Blinders style speaks to you then be prepared to grab everyone’s eyeballs the next time you attend a theme party or a wedding.
The 1920s classical style is back on-trend these days as the Netflix series, ‘The Peaky Blinders’ has taken over the minds of the Millenials and has got an overwhelming fanbase. The series revolves around a gangster family, dating back to the time of first world war. The storyline is centred around their thrills and ambitions but apart from all these what stole the viewer’s mind and stood out is, the outfits of the characters.
So, we feel it’s high time to add a personal touch and revive the long-lost Era of the British traditional classic styles.
Especially. When you think of twenties-inspired outfits, you think of tweed suits, cropped trousers, baker-boy tweed caps all made from heavy tweed fabric. And you can witness the same in Tommy Shelby’s dressing look. He’s been portrayed as a witty ganglord, and his style sense and outfits received immense popularity and overwhelming response from the viewers. Even many high-street fashion brands have also created collections keeping in mind the epic dressing styles from Peaky Blinders.
We all know, Englishmen have a fetish for their suits and the same has been seen in the series “Peaky Blinders.” Many seasons have passed, yet their all-time favourite tweed suits have never faltered. Specific details were added to everything starting from cufflinks to tie-pins to tweed suits and their texture.
But you can add the same glamour to your dressing style with a twist without much hassle.
So without further ado, let’s look into the key elements that can help you create your Peaky Blinders look:
THE TWEED JACKET
Tweed jacket is the first and the main element of a Peaky look. If you want to achieve the Tommy Shelby style, a tweed jacket as outerwear can provide you with the exact look. Try to get your hands on long tweed jackets or coats to create the vibe. Also, getting the right fit and texture is very crucial as it can work wonders for your look.
Tweed jackets are truly a piece of clothing worth the investment. They last for years, standing the test of time. Tweed jackets are truly timeless pieces and can amp up your style game the moment you adorn it. You can team-up your tweed jacket with other accessories to achieve the Peaky Blinders look. Go for herringbone tweed jackets and classical-style patterns and silhouettes to get the desired look. You can also opt for dark tones like charcoal grey, olive green and black to enhance the overall look.
THE TWEED SUITS
To excel the Peaky Blinders look, all you need is a nicely tailored three-piece tweed suit. You can pair them up with cropped or narrow trousers.
If you have a high budget and want to own something that falls a bit on the pricier side, consider buying bespoke tweed suits. But keep in mind your fit and buy accordingly. Go for textured patterns or checks in hues of dusty blue, brown or grey. Also, don’t opt for lighter fabrics because it will fail to give you the desired look. So, always go for the vintage-style tweed suits to ace the Peaky Blinders look.
You may also consider wearing a waistcoat but some may feel it looks too constricted. So keeping in mind the risks, you can opt for the waistcoats.
One of the most recognizable elements of the Peaky Blinders style is the penny-collared shirt. The shirt features a round edge and usually acts as a middle-thing between the granddad and traditional-collared shirt. You can consider investing in one if you want to elevate your style and achieve the look like a proper mug-shot gangster from the series ‘’Peaky Blinders.”
You can also add a bit of mischievousness to your outfit by keeping a few buttons undone.
THE BAKER-BOY TWEED CAP
The baker-boy tweed cap is way more light in weight and one can carry it easily with a swag. No other cap can provide you with the authentic look other than the baker-boy caps.
These caps not only would add an authentic appeal but will also add a new dimension to your whole look.
Go get ready and blow everyone’s mind with your Peaky Blinders look.
