With summer coming to a close, we start thinking about what’s awaiting us this school year, HA just kidding. Going back to school depresses me just as much as it depresses you, so let’s skip that dialogue and focus on having fun with the days we have left like this Fashionisto.
On his way to meet up with some friends before a concert, this week’s fashionable boy went with a great easy-going summer ensemble. As difficult as it is to dress for an outdoor concert (Jacket? No jacket? Rain? Moshing?), this Fashionisto surpassed most options by going with a comfortable match up of two returning trends — plaid and graphic tees.
It was his graphic tee that got my attention first. By having a unique design occurring as it’s focal point, rather than a sport’s team or a phrase, it elevates a T-shirt from work out gear to going out wear. Additionally, the stark contrast between the black and white make it very eye-catching. Follow this Fashionisto and grab a well-designed graphic tee to stay comfortable while looking collected, like this pick from Zumiez.
Next, of course, are the ever popular plaid shorts. These style of shorts have proved themselves permanent by their reoccurrence through every season. A got to favorite of this Fashionisto, he picked a subtle coloring of plaid from his closet to complement his shirt. Perfect for summer, this style is easy-going, works with relatively everything and of course hides stains really well, so ideal for the carefree guy. Pair these shorts from PacSun with the aforementioned graphic tee to create a great summer outfit.
Hint: Frequently I see plaid shorts that are too matchy-matchy with the wearer’s shirt. Try not to take the main color from the shorts and pick a tee in that same color, for it can be overbearing. Instead, take one of the background or quieter hues of the shorts to match your shirt to.
