Even though winter fashion is know for its dark colors and heavy fabrics, it’s always refreshing to see warmer colors and summery patterns on a guy in the cold months. This Fashionisto, on his way out to dinner with his girlfriend, was truly defying the elements outside. In the midst of the wind, snow and rain he decided to spice things up and throw on some color. I personally love colored pants on guys; they’re the perfect way to deviate away from the typical jean or khaki look. They’re a means for guys to express their personality and have some fun with the colors in their wardrobe. J.Crew is a great place to find flattering splashes of color for any guy’s closet. This orange pair of pants is easy to pair with a comfy sweater for an effortlessly pulled together look.
To finish off the look, this Fashionisto pairs a classic pair of desert boots with a patterned button-up. Desert boots are an extremely versatile shoe style. They go great with essentially any pair of pants from jeans to khakis. I love this pair by Shore Leave; they’re classic with a twist. The color pop in the sole of the shoe adds another element of fun and sophistication to any ensemble. In addition, the classic checker button-up is a simple way to maintain a sense of elegance and class. Fred Perry’s Gingham Button-Down is the perfect style and cut for any guy.
Hint: Unlike women, men don’t have to choose what bag to wear with which shoes or whether to sport a chunky necklace or simple chain. Their accessories, such as belts, cuff links and sunglasses, are all small touches that tie a look together. Tuckernuck’s embroidered belts add yet another pop of color and style. From American Flag needlepoint to a duck duck goose motif, these belts can rejuvenate any look.
