#MCM (or 'Man Crush Monday' if you've been living under a rock/ don't use social media) is a day to celebrate the good looking males of the world. My ultimate man crush has got to be Michael Scofield (Wentworth Miller) in Prison Break; he's got the smouldering eyes, he's got the tattoos and my god he's got the brains. If you've seen the show you'll know what I mean when I say he's got a whole 'air of mystery' going on, and it doesn't hurt that his face looks like that. Unfortunately Wentworth has changed a bit since his role in Prison Break- but at least we can take comfort in the fact that the character of Michael Scofield (and his sizzling good looks) will live on every time we re-watch the box set. New Look has challenged me to style my man crush using items from their new autumn/winter menswear section, and while he's just about the only man in existence to look good in a prison jumpsuit I thought I'd give it a go. Here's what I picked!
I've gone with a fairly smart look- this is definitely my preference when it comes to mens fashion! I'm not a fan of anything either too baggy or too tight (skinny jeans on men do very little for me) and so I'm all about pieces that are nicely fitted. While this outfit looks quite dark and black, the trousers and parka are actually both navy blue- this is a colour I'm obsessed with at the moment and it's definitely a nice choice for autumn/winter. It's still quite dark and conservative, and while it's not quite as versatile as black it tends to go with most things so it's easy to mix and match with other pieces. I really do like New Look menswear, as with their womenswear the quality is always really good and they're also good for inexpensive basics and staple items. Edit: I showed my boyfriend this post to see what he thought of my man crush, and he liked the navy parka I chose so much that he ordered it for himself!
