Beau Brummel

Oscar Wilde


“The only way to atone for being occasionally a little over-dressed is by being always absolutely over-educated.”

In our age when getting “dressed up” means simply wearing the appropriate clothes for the occasion, rather than preparing for a fancy dress party, simply wearing the correct clothes for the occasion is usually enough.  If you were lucky enough to be endowed with a Wilde-like wit, feel free to over-dress on occasion.
