What is it about pirates that makes them so stylish? Maybe it’s their edgy lifestyle, the reckless abandon with which they dress themselves, the cool way they walk (because of the constantly rocking boats, of course). Whatever the case may be, we like it. The mismatched layers and casual silhouettes, all given structure with the perfect scarf, belt, and pirate-y coat–it’s so good. So we created an outfit with a nod to Pirates of the Caribbean.
The goal was to achieve that messy pirate volume, with enough structure and refinement here and there to dress it up and not end up in full messy pirate mode. Like Captain Jack Sparrow, we added a nice red scarf, hat, and really cool boots. The key to the outfit really is the belt and boots; they keep it from becoming a little bit too disheveled.
