California is known for bleach blondes, bro tanks and endless summer days. It is not every day you see someone in jeans, a flannel and a beanie, especially in the dead of summer. But for this Fashionisto, it is just another way to stay cool and beat this summer heat.
As a recent grad from William Jessup University and Seattle born, this Fashionisto brings home influences to Sacramento street style. “I am so used to wearing jeans and long sleeve shirts and in Sacramento everyone wears shorts,” he says. This Fashionisto breaks the norm by wearing a red flannel shirt, brown jeans, a black watch, red Vans and a gray beanie.
As a musician, this Fashionisto style is also influenced by great artists such as Noah Gunderson and Phil Wickham. The musician look has been one to slowly take over coffee shops around the country. It’s hard to find an Americano without a beanie or flannel by its side. They have become essentials for this laid back look. What is usually worn as a winter accessory has found a way to be fashionable in any season.
There is a variety of ways to adapt this look. During the summer, a beanie can be a great addition to a tank top and cargos mimicking the style of stores such as PacSun and Urban Outfitters. The most classic way to wear a beanie is with a hoodie and jeans. It takes no effort and can be a quick fix for bad hair days.
So whether you are originally from Seattle or Sacramento this look can be one worn anywhere.
Spotted: Beanies were shown throughout rag & bone’s fall 2013 menswear runway collection.
