Seven Days of Dapper: Molly Adams

We’re back with a brand new Seven Days of Dapper! This week we’re turning the tables – and the lens – on one of our favorite photographers: dapperQ contributor Molly Adams. Photographer Leah Case captured a week’s worth of style from Molly’s closet!

BIO

My name is Molly Adams. I’m a photographer and I’m born and raised in Los Angeles. In many ways, I’ve looked the same since I was about five years old.

My style has subtly grown over the years: always a tomboy and sometimes dapper. I used to wear loud colorful vintage pieces, [but] now I rely on basics, mostly black and white. The most important things to me are fit and shape. I find brands that fit me well and stick with them.

This is my winter daily wear because it’s perfect for when you leave your house and it’s 50° and 70° by lunch. Also the most practical for days I have a shoot.

This is my go to dress wear. I own a few suits as well as black tie blazers but rarely wear them as this is Los Angeles and I don’t work in an office. Worn three ways, depending on the event: no tie, tie, or bolo.

One step below the all black look, this is for nice parties, art openings, anything that’s fancy but not too fancy. Can be worn with and without a tie. And I like the navy and black. If you don’t, don’t do it.
