As many Fashionistas and Fashionistos know, when dealing with bright colors, pair with neutrals in order to keep a main focal point, without confusing anyone who may be looking. This Fashionisto sticks to that rule perfectly by pairing his bright red Converse shoes with a pair of dark wash denim and a simple black V-neck. By doing this, the Fashionisto provides any viewers a colorful focal point, refraining from overwhelming them.
Simple accessories are key when trying to direct the eyes to one piece of the ensemble. In this case, the Fashionisto selected a minimal stainless steel Nixon watch, again, not adding any extra colors into the outfit. While sleek and stylish, this watch adds a very masculine touch to the simplistic style.
Interestingly enough, Converse shoes can be worn by all different sub-groups, in all different styles. Whether the style is punk, hipster or feminine, Chuck Taylors can easily convert to any style for Fashionistas or Fashionistos. In this instance, the Fashionisto decided to keep the look subtle and clean. By looking at the shoes, one might notice that they are well-kept and without any substantial wear and tear. This observation allows people to make assumptions about the Fashionistos personality.
Switch this outfit around by changing the jeans into a pair of denim shorts, and substitute the watch for a cool flat brimmed hat. Or, as fall rolls around, warm this outfit up by adding a preppy cardigan or a clean, cotton hoodie.
This Fashionisto clearly knows what he’s doing when it comes to adding focus to an outfit. He keeps it clean and simple, and makes himself easily noticed when walking into a room.
Hint: When adding a bright color to an outfit as a focal point, not only should you refrain from adding other bright colors, but keep from adding bold accessories, too. This will overall add to your ensemble and allow it to look very planned out and precise.
