This week’s Fashionisto took a classic men’s summer look including cargo shorts and a button-up plaid shirt and made it casual by by adding his own touch with accessories and shoes. By doing so, he exudes a laid-back and easy-going personality.
He does a great job at juxtaposing the crisp and polished blue, plaid shirt with a pair of loose fitting neutral cargo shorts with baggy pockets and a semi-wrinkled finish. This allows an outfit to feel casually rounded without looking overly done-up.
Over the past two years, TOMS shoes have become extremely popular with Fashionistos and are now beginning to be seen more on Fashionistos around town. While comfortable, they can portray so many different looks. A pair of clean black Toms can look slightly professional, while a pair of tattered and worn Toms, like this Fashionisto is wearing, allow him to look well-travelled and outdoorsy.
The array of bracelets and anklets that the Fashionisto is wearing were all collected from his worldly travels to places such as Africa, Hawaii and Brazil. Seeing as travelling is such a huge part of this Fashionistos life, this jewelry is not only attractive to anyone looking, but it carries sentimental value, making it even more impressive.
To easily switch up this outfit, try changing the button-up for a plain tee, and adding a straw fedora for a funky vibe. If you want a cleaner look, substitute the TOMS for a pair of weekend loafers, and instead of cargo shorts add a pair of grey chinos.
There is no doubt that this Fashionisto’s style is casual and comfortable, but it is also meaningful to him. There’s definite thought put into his outfit and he undoubtedly looks great while sporting his souvenirs.
Hint: When travelling, rather than buying small knick-knacks, buy something that you can wear and carry around with you daily.
