Ciara wears the June kerchief


We are so excited to introduce you to Ciara Strickland for today's installment of #HowTheyDoDapper. We were connected with Ciara by our good friend Laurel (thank you, Laurel!!) and for that, we'll be forever grateful.

On that note, do you have a stylish nominee for #HowTheyDoDapper? We would love to meet them! Email us:

We are huge fans of what Ciara is doing over on @thenewmixx, because not only is it very aesthetically pleasing, it's informative, and an excellent resource for dapper dressers all across the spectrum. Her recent "mini-infographic" posts on Instagram include topics such as How to Take Your Own Measurements, The Top Color Trends for Fall 2020 (if you know us, you know we are Pantone fanatics), and 5 Tips to Nailing An Off The Rack Suit. Be sure and give her a follow on Insta & check out her blog, so much good stuff! 

Here's a peek behind the curtain at our new friend, Ciara.

Find them looking dapper in: Virginia Beach, VA! 
Tell us a little bit about the story you're writing in your Clifton + Leopold? 
The story I am writing in my Clifton + Leopold is all about trying something new and not turning back. I've always wanted to see how I could pull off a kerchief or an ascot, and the June helped with that. The pattern is bold and unique, so I wanted it to speak for itself. The June made me feel dapper, yet sophisticated.
Complete this sentence. I love the C + L ____________ because _____________ . 
I love the C+L June because it gives off an amazing flair to any outfit, from a headband to a scarf.
What is atop your C + L wishlist? 
The Merlot! The pop of red is everything and is one of my favorite colors.
It's a Saturday! What are you doing? 
My Saturdays typically start early with coffee/brunch and if the weather is nice, somewhere outside either reading or taking photos.
Your Ultimate Dapper Icon:
Cate Blanchett in Oceans 8 or Gabriel Swann Macht in Suits.
It's quitting time on any given day. What are you sipping on? 
Uncle Nearest or Chattanooga Whiskey!
A dance party is not complete without: 
Anything Bruno Mars or Maluma!
Tell us, Ciara, what makes you feel dapper? 
Either a full suit or a suit separate. Anytime I rock a suit, I feel invincible. From head to toe, there is just something about a suit that is put well together.
Where can we find you on the internet? 


Thank you, Ciara! We're so glad you decided to try out an ascot, because it is EVERYTHING on you! So interesting to learn a bit about the inspiration behind your impeccable style. You truly rock a suit like nobody's business!
