Let's Hear it for the Boys

It seems everyone’s returned from spring break on their A-game, and this Fashionisto is no exception. Summer is nearing, so cardigans are getting lighter, layers sparser and necklines are getting lower—way lower. This look is infinitely interesting; pieced together with a great mix of urban sophistication while simultaneously maintaining a certain casualness. It’s perfect for classes or even going out.

First things first, find any cardigan in your closet and you’re already 20% of the way there. Next, a pair of versatile, slim chinos. He opted for this medium gray color which complements his amazing snakeskin bag and is definitely refreshing amidst all of the traditional black and blue jeans. He paired those with an especially cool and breezy, extra loose tank top. This unique style would make for a very handy layering tool as well as a great, comfy summer piece with a pair of printed shorts, bright socks and sneakers.

These accessories keep the ball rolling in lots of unexpected turns with appearances from leather, snakeskin and even a bit of the sneaker trend, and I couldn’t have picked a better pair myself. He’s sporting white high-top Converse, which I see as ringleaders for the laid back vibe. I love the combination of a classic pair of Converse with other bold, exciting accessories to balance the look. Helping out with the balancing are the final two accessories; it takes two to tango and they are certainly great dance partners. Starting from the top, I’m loving leather caps at the moment and they’re even better when a Fashionisto sports them. This one was the perfect choice to join his black leather and snakeskin bag in a unique leather duo.

Take cues from this guy and don’t be afraid to invest in some unique pieces! It’s all in how you style them and if you choose with versatility in mind, like the pieces used here, you can put together an ensemble just as cool.

How To: This style tank top is definitely different and I think it’s a great, multi-functional piece. If you’re thinking of giving one a try, you can take inspiration from this look and pair it with chinos and a cardigan or black jeans and a leather jacket. Or, if you need to ease into the look, try cut-offs with another tank top like this one layered under it.
