#OOTD 79 White Out Red

Red means danger and while TheChicGeek perilously hovers off the cliff he looks as cool as a cucumber in his white seersucker suit. Roll the trousers, push the arms back and something, which was quite formal, now, has a hot weather coolness to it. If you find yourself stuck between a rock and a hard place, quite literally like TheChicGeek, then make sure you always look your best!

Who said Summer whites were just for tennis or cricket? Take a trip to the coast and feel those elements. As TheChicGeek can testify, it rocks! How do you wear you Summer whites?

TheChicGeek was given the privilege of experiencing BMW’s new limited-edition MRPORTER.COM i3 electric car for his latest series of OOTD. Looking sleek in its navy/black colourway with white highlights, the new BMW i3 X MRPORTER.COM is the city car equivalent of a classic tuxedo. TheChicGeek thought he’d take a spin around the city and take a first look at the latest crop of buildings springing up in London. Much like the new BMW i3, these buildings will become the future design icons of London. ART - The first stop was Tate Modern’s new extension, opening this year, housing its video…
