LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: 365 Days Of Vintage

Let's Hear it for the Boys

Who doesn’t love a good vintage piece of clothing? The best part is, each piece of retro wear usually has a story. Whether it was your grandfather’s coat, your grandma’s scarf or a sweater out of your dad’s closet, each article brings forth a memory. That’s why I am consistently attracted to unique and interesting pieces from the 1900s. There is just something so bold and intriguing about Fashionista/os who can pull together an ensemble that incorporates clothes from their parent’s closets.

This Fashionisto was spotted sporting his retro and chic jacket one cold morning. I would have never guessed that this would be a vintage coat; however, it is actually his father’s from about 25 years ago. I thought this coat was cool before, but after I found out it was vintage, it made the outfit even cooler. This Fashionisto tops off his hipster look by tucking a pair of gray jeans into black combat boots. Nothing says A+ street style like a classic pair of combat boots. He also wore a simple and classy black turtleneck underneath his bold jacket. His outfit is a perfect combination of vintage, edge and class.

I know that shopping for such bold items can be a bit challenging. However, Zara’s online site is one I always recommend for guys. This website has such a wide range of options for both men and women looking to find clothes that will make a statement. This coat may not be vintage, but it will definitely label you as a trendsetter. It is chic and perfect for the cold weather. To match the vibe of this Fashionisto, try these boots with a simple pair of jeans. It’s fun and easy to make a simple outfit appear chic and trendy.

Hint: The perfect jacket can make the perfect statement. No matter how plain or simple your outfit is, if paired with the right coat, you are automatically chic and well-dressed. If you are really feeling brave, try this reclaimed vintage coat. Not only will it get the attention of others, but it’s a great conversation starter. Let your clothes express your personality and try something that feels right for you, no matter what decade it came from.
