Date Night with Alex Grant: Breakfast at Tiffany’s

We all know that Friday and Saturday nights are often labeled as “date nights”. For some people, this means getting dolled up and hitting the clubs or dinner at an expensive restaurant. For me, it means a good bottle of wine or micro brew, stirring up a delicious meal in our tiny kitchen in the South End of Boston, and throwing in a classic film (be it Glory or Barefoot in the Park).

While chatting with Skip (the creator of the first-class style blog Alex Grant – a must read), he came up with the brilliant idea of recreating the styles from these movies in a “date night” series, to be posted here on N’East Style. Thanks to Skip’s cleverness, I am thrilled to welcome you to the first installment of the series with Breakfast at Tiffany’s, a natural choice for its unforgettable New York style.  Here, Skip has used his keen sense of style to pick out the key pieces that embody George Peppard’s character Paul. The results? A clean, modern and unforgettable look.

PS Stay tuned for Part II, Audrey Hepburn’s look to be posted tomorrow here on N’East Style, by yours truly.
