Let's Hear it for the Boys

The bad boy look is one that can be tricky to pull off. You don’t necessarily want to be wearing leather and studs, but you also don’t necessarily want to wear a paisley colored collared shirt. There’s always that edgy look that’s somewhere in between the two. It’s that effortlessly cool look that all of the ladies secretly love. I’m talking about the grungy street style look that is seriously hot this season. When I saw this Fashionisto I just knew he had the look I’m talking about.

This Fashionisto defines what I like to think of as “effortlessly cool.” He looks like he just kind of threw on his outfit, yet he has that chill vibe that drew me to this look.

I love how this Fashionisto rocked the denim button-down. This is a classic piece that can be worn year round and in a variety of different ways. You can pair a denim button-down with a plaid flannel, or even just a plain V-neck or T-shirt like this Fashionisto did. I also love how he wore it with a pair of deep brown corduroys. If you guys have been reading my articles all semester you know just how much I love a great pair of corduroys. They’re a classic pair of pants that just have an all around amazing texture and look to them.

Not only does this Fashionisto have an unique and amazing sense of style, but I absolutely fell in love with his boots. They are super trendy and they have that euro look that’s really been in style lately. When I asked him about his amazing boots he told me his girlfriend bought them for him. Figures. Ladies really know how to style the modern college boy up to our likings. His snapback is really just an added touch that really just pulls the look all together to create this denim and grunge look.

Hint: If you want to channel your inner effortlessly chill bad boy I would definitely suggest picking up a denim button-down. This denim western style button-down from Urban Outfitters is the perfect shirt for this season. I also love this denim button-down also from Urban Outfitters because the dye job is just absolutely sick. And you definitely cannot survive this spring without a pair of boots. I can’t obsess over these black leather cuff boots from Topman enough. They are to die for! And don’t forget to top it all off with a snackback and you’re all set for the streets.
