Many guys think there isn’t a broad spectrum of ideas and outfits when it comes to forming their own personal style. They go for the classic or the sporty look because they just don’t know how to go outside of the box with styling, fearing they may go too far. But just because guys can’t add a statement necklace and bright heels doesn’t mean they can’t accessorize to achieve an eye-catching look.
This Fashionisto was a stand out wearing a black and gray striped shirt, gray shorts and brown Sperry Top-Siders. The look is a few effortless pieces that translate into a killer outfit when styled together. What made the outfit even trendier were the accessories he pieced with it. The watch, glasses, Sperry Top-Siders and matching gray backpack were great finishing touches. This Fashionisto is also a great model of how guys can accessorize their looks just as much as ladies do!
Nobody wants to blend in with a crowd, so why let your outfits stay average when they could be striking with the addition of a simple color, pattern or accessory? The stripes on this Fashionisto are eye-catching even though he is rocking a monochromatic look. Color does not always equal bold, patterns and accessories can get the job done just as well if not better!
I also recommend watches for men as a go-to accessory. In a world where you can always check the time on a phone, watches are now aimed to be more of a fashion statement and less of a daily necessity. There are many different designs, colors and stores that sell trendy watches making them the best “jewelry” in menswear. Another easy and functional accessory for guys to rock are backpacks. It’s the handbag for men, and it makes sense when on the go all day on campus. The color of the bag can be incorporated into your outfit just like this Fashionisto did with his dark gray backpack. You could also try a messenger bag to match the cross-body bag trend sweeping the fashion world this fall. Finally, most guys are already interested in shoes, so make them stand out! The way this Fashionisto paired brown Sperry Top-Siders was a great way to break up the black and white color scheme.
When it comes to making the decision to blend in or be bold, it’s best to go for it and try something new. The best part is it does not take much time or effort to do so. The addition of an eye-catching print or pattern plus an accessory or two of your choice can make for a bold look!
Hint: To incorporate pattern in a bold way, don’t be afraid to mix two contrasting patterns or try an unusual design. If you’re looking to spice up an outfit with an accessory, try scarves, belts or even a hat to finish off a look!
