    Friday Challenge 6-27-14: Stand out quietly

    It's been discussed in Threads before, as well as mentioned on the main site, but sometimes we can get a little carried away with our style. Sometimes the most simple of outfits are also the best looking. The object of this challenge is to dress in a simple, low-key manner, but still project an overall look of impeccable style. Bright colors, flashy patterns, and intricate details are out. Any level of formality is acceptable, but keep the colors muted, and the outfits simple and classic.

    The general rules:

    1.) A challenge is proposed (typically on a Sunday or Monday).
    2.) Ideas are bounced around throughout the week, any questions are codified, and guidelines are put into place.
    3.) On Friday (or before), everyone dresses according to the challenge's parameters.
    4.) On Friday evening or Saturday, all challengers are recorded and voting opens to see who best represents the challenge.
    5.) A winner is chosen by majority vote on Sunday, and the winner is responsible for choosing the next week's challenge.

    For anyone looking for some guidance, it is written:

    1 Peter 3:2-4. "Whose adorning let it not be that outward adorning of plaiting the hair, and of wearing of gold, or of putting on of apparel; But let it be the hidden man of the heart, in that which is not corruptible, even the ornament of a meek and quiet spirit, which is in the sight of God of great price."

    Deuteronomy 22:11-12. “Thou shalt not wear a garment of divers sorts, as of woolen and linen together. 12 Thou shalt make thee fringes upon the four quarters of thy vesture, wherewith thou coverest thyself.”

    Apparel I have, and I won't have to worry about the plaiting of my hair.

    I'm thinking less along the lines of burlap sacks and more along the lines of simple colors (navy, black, white, grays) and simple designs. Simple and streamlined designs, i.e. solid, single-breasted jacket beats madras plaid double breasted. If you must incorporate a pattern, try to keep it restrained, and necktie and/or socks would be the least flashy way to use patterns.

    I like it. Should be fun!

    I think if I win again this summer my challenge will be dedicated to @Duvel and @M. Montaigne. Something like: "What Should I Wear to a Wedding" or "What Should I NOT Wear to a Wedding."

    Help! I'm going to a wedding on the deck of naval carrier and I am told that I have to look nautical.
