Let's Hear it for the Boys

Brown grass, gray skies, winter blues, a dose of color is just what we need these days to help brighten our spirits! This well-dressed Fashionisto sports a lively look which is quite contrary to the blacks and grays that seem to become standard style for most of the winter.

Although it’s not quite spring, your wardrobe doesn’t have to hold out on color and energy. Don’t be afraid to add a pop of color to brighten up your outfit and create a striking look that stands out in a crowd. Both white and bright colors are often considered attire that should be worn only in the summer. However, both of these can be appropriate all year long. To do this, just remember the word balance. For example, this Fashionisto’s bright red chinos are the focus of his outfit, so he balances them with more subtle colors like white and navy in order to keep his look somewhat reserved.

He adds extra character to his outfit by way of a detailed patchwork belt. An accessory like this can take any basic look to something rather extraordinary. When sporting a simple ensemble as we see here, or a basic T-shirt and chinos for instance, don’t shy away from adding an accessory or two to your look. By simply pairing a belt, watch or hat with your outfit, you can add a touch of personality to your appearance and truly make your look your own.

Follow this Fashionisto’s lead this spring by adding a pair of L.L.Bean signature Bean Boots to your shoe collection. They are a classic, waterproof boot to protect your feet against the melting snow and soon-to-come spring showers.

Hint: Have fun with your clothing choices this spring. Show off your wonderful personality in the way you dress and be bold by adding color into your appearance (but remember balance!) Designer Karl Lagerfeld said: “Sweatpants are a sign of defeat. You lost control of your life so you bought some sweatpants.” While we all have occasional lazy days, I hope this Fashionisto’s confident, put-together look has inspired you just as much as it has inspired me to maintain a smart, presentable look every day (even in these last days of winter).
