Let's Hear it for the Boys

This Fashionisto is sporting a classic outfit that gives off a cool and casual vibe. With summer slowly sneaking up on us, he is squeezing in his last dark colors of the season. What I love about this look is the simple and sharp message black on black communicates, while cooperating with his funky shades. There is no denying this gent is a musician with swag!

Speaking of those shades, they are the most unique pair I’ve seen in a while. The blood orange color immediately pops breaking up the monochromatic color scheme. I have always been a fan of round sunglasses; on my own social media bios, I express my adornment in “seeing life” through them. However, these are truly timeless with a modern shape twist that frames his face.

Moving along to his black scoop tank derived of 100% fine jersey cotton construction, features a loose-fitting body with a bound neckline trim and cut-in armscye. Cut-in tanks are great for hot spring/summer days and also help accentuate the upper body. He paired his tank with the perfect black denim. I can not stress enough how fitted jeans look better over shapeless jeans. All gentlemen should own at least one pair of black and blue fitted jeans; I promise you won’t regret it!

He also sports a pair of black oxfords. Oxfords have come a long way since the 1800s. The once formal shoes have evolved into a plethora of styles that are more commonly worn for casual wear. Staying consistent with his black on black ensemble, his black oxfords earned him a style point in the men’s shoe game.

Hint: Embrace spring and summer with more colors. Be sure to dress accordingly to the season. This look can easily change with a different top color or pattern. Depending on the occasion, there are a number of ways to mix and match these pieces.
