During the winter months, corduroy, a heavier velvety fabric, rules the runway. It is a warmer, more comfortable alternative to denim — yet a more stylish option over sweatpants. But as winter turns to spring Fashionistas and Fashionistos alike make concerted efforts to bridge the changing seasons by wearing various transition pieces. By taking inspiration from his winter wear this Fashionisto successfully links the seasonal shift by bringing corduroy into the springtime with his Obey OG Corduroy Flatbill Snapback Hat.
When it comes to fashion, it can be easy to overlook the advantages that a little bit of texture can bring to an ensemble. This Fashionisto’s corduroy hat is the perfect example of not only a little piece of winter, but also a pop of textural contrast. I like how he keeps the rest of his outfit fairly simple. A cotton tee with an embroidered logo over light gray skinny wash jeans gives this Fashionisto a laid back aura. His accessories, however, give him that necessary bit of flare. From his hat, to his shades, to his watch — his accessories give him a more definitive sense of style.
I love this Fashionisto’s bistre colored leather ankle boots as well. With his skinny jeans loosely tucked in under the tongue of his boot, it is apparent that this Fashionisto carefully constructed an outfit that screams relaxation underlying conscious creation. I don’t think that enough men out there capitalize on the ankle boot look, but this Fashionisto does an A plus job.
From his embroidered corduroy hat, to his leather ankles boots, transitional articles of clothing should be taken advantage of during a colder spring day, or a warmer winter day. Recycling what you wear is an essential token of fashion advice, but how you do it defines who you are. By taking bits and pieces of last season’s trends you can accessorize them for seasons to come, completely revitalizing their look and feel. By taking advantage of your prior knowledge of last season’s trends, you can create brand new ensembles.
