Let's Hear it for the Boys

Fashion breaks boundaries, it changes and shifts from trend to trend while making unexpected turns. No trend was a result of a designer’s shyness to try something bizarre. Stepping out of comfort zones and creating a little stir or controversy always brings something to talk about here and there. In addition, the more abstract the style is, the more likely it’ll be to capture our attention.

This week’s Fashionisto definitely captured my attention. He wore an Urban Outfitters floral button-down that from a distance might have been mistaken for a white and black polka dot pattern, but looks can be deceiving. He matched the top with some black skinny jeans and sealed the ensemble to perfection with some high-top formal boots from Topman.

While some guys possibly think twice about wearing a top with flowers on it, those whom take on the challenge and pick up on the trend like this week’s Fashionisto definitely pull off the look. I’m assuming its because of this notion of society deciding florals were only for girls or deciding it was specifically only okay for only summer tropical trunks, but I find that wrong. Regardless, florals are currently trending and you should definitely have that written on your list of must-haves for the summer season. Depending on your personality and color preferences, there’s retailers such as Urban Outfitters that provide with options and selection. Even retailers like American Eagle have joined the wave making it even more easier to obtain to look.

If you’re unsure on what button-down to get for that weekend party or that upcoming trip and you’d like to try something different, keep in mind the trending floral shirt.

Hint: Remember to not over do any trend; if you’re going to do a shirt with a crazy distracting pattern, combine it with one tone shorts or jeans. Finding balance on how you match and put ensembles together is vital and can make the difference between something good or just flat out to out there and distracting.
