LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: Captivating Color

Let's Hear it for the Boys

Whoever came up with the famous fashion tip “black and white is always right” may have been quite wrong. While neutrals are very sensible to wear, they can become boring. With color comes creativity, which fashion is arguably all about. This Fashionisto strayed away from winter blacks and grays, and instead played with a fun mix of colors and prints.

From head to toe, this student put together a detailed, yet simple outfit for a leisurely Saturday. His pants are unique due to their clay wash. That being said, bright colors are becoming equally as trendy as their muted neutral cousin. Shades of red are classic choices because they are distinctive yet also fairly easy to incorporate into a daily outfit. This Fashionisto explained that he found this pair of jeans while shopping in London, but similar styles can be found online at Express.

There are several options to pair with this kind of denim, but the blue and turquoise in his go-to flannel provide a creative contrast. In addition, a plaid flannel is a staple for men. If you don’t already have one, I’d advise you to take advantage of all the flannel options at Urban Outfitters. To bring out the darker shades of blue in his shirt, this Fashionisto layered it with the perfectly colored, lightweight jacket.

With the sun shining bright and reflecting off the snow, he undoubtedly needed to wear his favorite pair of shades. His tortoise print Ray Ban sunglasses incorporate a welcomed neutral element in his outfit. But regardless of their relative subtlety, these shades still unique compared to the black and silver sunnies that guys tend to favor. On that note, the gray scarf is another thoughtfully neutral choice in an outfit loaded with color and prints. Remember that show-stealing accessories will compete with the rest of your outfit.

Hint: Don’t forget about completing your look with stylish shoes. This Fashionisto chose brown leather lace-up boots to quietly finish his colorful look. Check out this comparable pair at DSW.
