Let's Hear it for the Boys

Here’s a good tip for the trendy and the classic Fashionistos alike: stay strong and warm in army green. The color now is here to stay, especially in a great jacket or coat. Gone are the days of the huge, poofy and garish camouflage coats. In their place remains the structured and stylish outerwear, keeping the functional feel and elements of an army jacket through details like zippers and pockets.

This Fashionisto chose to stay warm with a slightly bigger army green jacket so he could properly layer for a New York winter. Yet, the jacket maintains a sense of utility through the zippers aligning the breast pockets and the cool, tailored collar.

His well fitted jeans and sleek brown boots add to the modern feel of the jacket, along with the casual gray hooded jacket tucked behind his head. To break the solid color tones, the Fashionisto accessorized and kept warm with a fun plaid scarf in black and white. The trick for tossing in a sudden print is to keep it in the accessories, like a scarf. Also, to not overwhelm the eye or the outfit, it’s usually best to look for a print in a more neutral color.

Everything about this look screams casual, cool, but most of all, warm. This Fashionisto succeeds at balancing this sleek, but comfortable, look all with the help of his army green.

Hint: Still not sold on the army green as a big part of an outfit? Try incorporating it into accessories, like a scarf or hat, or even a top like a button-down shirt. The color itself adds an instant cool factor to any attire.
