Let's Hear it for the Boys

If you are making your way through the city, you are sure to see some fashionable pieces, business attire or the regular run-about with a messy bun. Yet, there are the occasional times when you take a moment and say, “Who’s that guy?” This Fashionisto, in fact, became one of those moments while making my way through the streets of Charleston. Who said great city style is only in the Big Apple?

With boots on his feet and book in hand, this Fashionisto looks ready to tread on the city streets, and make them his runway. Like most fashionable city dwellers, key pieces are a must while making their way downtown. A hooded, leather jacket paired with a sleek pair of slightly distressed jeans give the look quite the edgy flair.

The addition of mirrored aviator sunglasses are not only functional on a semi-sunny day, but allow for this Fashionisto to come across as ‘too cool for school.’ Other pieces that keep this stylish streetwalker with an edge are: a rustic button-down shirt, brown leather belt and handy computer bag at his side. Each piece comes together to create a look that is all this Fashionisto’s own. Although winter is nearly over, it does not mean winter clothing should be put away just yet. Take a stroll through your city streets ,and get inspired by the wear that you see.

Hint: If you are thinking of adopting some city-chic items into your wardrobe, take a cue from what you see on the streets. Since leather jackets were all the rage this season, take this simple piece and make it your own— like this one from ASOS. It’s important to keep the look to your style specifications, but taking inspiration from others is just an easy bonus.
