D // November 2015As part of Tate Collective's annual LOUD event, we hosted a smartphone filmmaking lab and curated a screening of 2-minute films made in response to an open call for submissions around the theme of 'Identity'." data-lightbox-theme="dark" LOUD TATE: I.Putting together a great ensemble for speed dating is not as easy for some as it may seem. Striking that balance between formal wear and pajamas to achieve “effortlessly stylish” has been my greatest style challenge over the years.
This 4-hour hands-on workshop culminated in participants making a completed 60-second smartphone film.
So, here’s some inspiration I’ve pulled from some of my favorite style blogs: FOR THE (UN)HIPSTER via Closet Freaks Anthony Urbano (pictured above) of the queer style blog Closet Freaks calls this look rebel prep.
(Click here for outfit details.) It is perfect for those who have a more classic prepster style but want to add a little edge so as not to look as if they’ve come to a speed dating event dressed for work.
FOR THE PROFESSOR via Qwear Sonny Oram of the queer style blog Qwear demonstrates how to achieve weekend professor style, which works for those who are grad students or academics (or who just love the smarty pants professor look).
The vest and pocket square add a bit of dressy detail without having to wear a tie.
