Let's Hear it for the Boys

I met this Fashionisto a number of weeks ago while he was checking out Eastern Connecticut’s Fashion Forward Club at the activities fair and I was immediately intrigued by his look. His mysterious and edgy style was dynamic and included a lot of texture and pattern when we had first met and again now. He incorporated his different pieces through layers and accessories which adds to his style, and the best part is that this Fashionisto made it appear effortless and simple.

He wears a red flannel shirt (which is a great starting point for fall layering) that gives him a semi-neutral base to work off of. His shirt allowed him to add a lot of different outerwear choices, but this Fashionisto opted for a light leather jacket. Again, a leather bomber jacket is the perfect piece to add into your outfit this fall because it gives you so many different options as far as style. On his bottom he wears a dark jean with a light acid wash, almost adding the appearance of texture to his jeans. His jeans complemented his flannel and leather jacket and kept with the edgy vibe that this Fashionisto was giving off.

As for accessories this Fashionisto knocked the ball out of the park. His jewelry was amazing! He wears two rings in his lip on either side also known as a “snake bite” piercing,  and also wears a ring through his septum. While some people may not be intrigued by this look, I simply thought it added to his personal style. He wore two rings on his right hand but my favorite was his skull ring. It was chic and stylish but maintained the overall appearance of this outfit. His shoes were a pair of black combat boots, like this pair from Dr. Marten.

My personal favorite thing about this week’s Fashionisto was his hair. Pulled back into a ponytail, this Fashionisto rocks some awesome dreads which finish off his look with the perfect punch of flare.

Hint: BE BOLD! Don’t be afraid to stand out or try something new with your style. Mix patterns, textures and colors to find your perfect combination while layering this fall!
