Let's Hear it for the Boys

When it comes to the winter, everyone has his or her favorite, comfortable go-to flannel. Whether it’s women’s or men’s fashions, a good flannel is a closet necessity. And what a better way to stand out on a dull snowy day then in a bright red flannel buttoned all the way up like this Fashionisto is wearing.  Paired with the neutral browns of his leather shoes and jacket, this fire red flannel makes the outfit much more eye-catching. It is always a nice change to see bright colors on an overcast winter day.

I also like how our Fashionisto buttons the collar all the way up. We have been seeing this trend a lot lately — I have even tried it out a few times myself. Stores such as J.Crew or Urban Outfitters have great men’s sections that offer a variety of colored and patterned collared shirts and flannels. Big time men such as David Beckham and Kanye West are also rocking it. This style is organized and is perfect for everything from walks to class to going out at night with the guys.  Not only do these types of tops work for the night out, the leather oxford shoes are perfect too. Girls like to see some variety away from Timberlands or Sperry Top-Siders, so leather shoes are a great way to be classy and stylish.

What I love about this Fashionisto is his sunglasses. Everyone has their favorite pair whether it be classic aviators or a more wild pair like these purple mirrored frames. We all know sometimes we don’t love going to class, but the walk there is a good excuse to put on your shades.

So when you’re deciding what to wear, give the buttoned up look a try. And don’t forget that changing up classic pieces makes for a great outfit.

Hint: Instead of buying a new collared shirt or flannel, just switch up the look by taking your previously owned collared shirts and buttoning them all the way up! Even if it’s not flannel material, plaid works too!
