Red Balmain Blazer with Jay-Z Concert Tee

After listening to Jay-Z's latest album, 4:44, I got inspired a bit to create a casual yet business look.  Jay-Z makes points throughout the album on how he's grown since the days he ran the streets and sold drugs and how that isn't the way anyone should be trying to get ahead. He gives  a little insight on how the black community should be focusing their energy and dollars in order to grow as a people. 

With finding the look, I wanted the comfort, casual yet arrogant vibe of hip hop but translated into a corporate look.

I chose a double breasted red Balmain jacket then paired it with a Jay-Z concert tee and Alice + Olivia pleated shorts.
