Let's Hear it for the Boys

Spring break is finally here! Whether you’ll be spending your vacation at home relaxing or going on a magical vacation, one thing is certain: you’ll want to look good!

This week’s Fashionisto sure knows how to make a statement with his bold choice of attire. Not many people are brave enough to make a statement with bright patterns, but for the ones who do, the payoff is big. When worn properly, bright patterns can jazz up any outfit, instantly turning you into a Fashionisto.

This look is especially appropriate for spring break as it gives off a very cool vibe, in accordance with the season. This Fashionisto chose to highlight his shorts, while downplaying the rest of his outfit in order to truly make these shorts the center of attention. The bright and bold patterns in his shorts give off a very fun and beachy vibe, which is absolutely perfect for spring break. However, in order to keep his look from seeming too chaotic and overwhelming, he downplays it with a white top and shoes. This goes even further to make the eye-catching shorts more noticeable.

The great thing about this look is that it’s very versatile. For a fun day at the beach, a quick rolling of the sleeves will give off the perfect beach-ready style. For a night out on the town, it could look look very fashion-forward and trendy if paired with a nice blazer. There are so many different options you can try! The most important tip is to not be afraid to experiment, and try designs that have not been worn before.

Hint: Since the shorts will be the one making the statement, let the rest of your outfit keep quiet by pairing it with solid neutral colors like black or white. However, if you’re feeling extra edgy and want to mix some patterns, make sure the patterns don’t clash too much!
