This Fashionisto's outfit is an interesting combination of spacers, tattoos, and a little business formality. He undoubtedly has his own style as he keeps his look classy with a rugged edge. I love how he contrasts his pale blue Zara button up shirt with a simple black wife-beater underneath, and then keeps the bottom half casual yet polished with med-wash denim and vintage leather dress boots. He adds the perfect finishing touch with his two very unique Celtic stone necklaces which he purchased from Ireland.
Although, his clothing choices are stylish, I find that his accessories make the most prominent fashion statement. His spacers and the two necklaces he wears give his outfit a unique twist.

How To: As per my last post about how to wear classics while giving your look an urban twist, all the same rules apply. The only difference here is that your main focus should be your accessories. In order to set yourself apart from the rest and stand-out, you must source your jewelry and accessories from places where the majority does not shop. For example, while travelling abroad, take some time and look at the shops around you and pick out some unique finds. Another few great places to find one-of-a-kind accessories are flea markets, specialty boutiques, Indian reserves, and thrift stores. Almost every year I venture up north to check out Native American Pow wow’s and I always seem to find the most beautiful hand-crafted jewelry and accessories. On the other hand, If you don’t feel like travelling; check out this website that has a bunch of imported jewelry from around the world (http://jewelry.novica.com/mens/)
Lastly, don’t be afraid of layering and wearing more than 4 pieces of jewelry. Simplicity is great, but my advice is to make your look signature, so a perfect balance between simplicity and complexity is needed.
