Fashionisto Spotlight

It always makes my head turn in happiness when I see a guy sporting color! When I ran into this Fashionisto, the subtle color under his navy blue cropped trench coat really caught my eye. His red-and-blue patterned flannel is a statement piece that really pulled together this casual yet classy outfit. Matching pieces in an outfit becomes a question of taste for both boys and girls. Sometimes it works and sometimes it doesn’t. In this case , this Fashionisto paired the right patterns and textures perfectly!
