Let's Hear it for the Boys

As spring is here, clothes are getting lighter and lighter. Fashionistas and Fashionistos have been reaching for more fun and colorful clothing pieces this week and it’s definitely one of my favorite times of the year.

This Fashionisto sported a casual yet cool and comfortable look. I captured him on one of those spring days in which it looked deceptively warm and sunny, yet it was very brisk and chilly. So this Fashionisto smarty layered his navy henley long sleeve top with a fun colored plaid button-down shirt and these two pieces not only worked well together but they also look great by themselves.

In addition to chambray shirts, plaid shirts are also another favorite of mine. This Fashionisto’s looked extremely comfortable and well worn in. After scouring online websites for something that’s close to his, I found a similar one, but still could not find his exact one. So, if you’re looking for one of those super comfortable looking plaid shirts, I suggest you head to your local thrift stores to search for the perfect one. I also especially love show this Fashionisto’s had elbow patches too!

To complete his outfit, this Fashionisto wore a pair of gray jeans. I haven’t been seeing gray jeans on many Fahsionistos nowadays, but after seeing this Fashoinisto wearing his, I am definitely hope more do. In addition to the perfect dark washed and essential black washed jeans, every Fashionisto should have a pair of gray jeans in his closet too. They’re especially helpful for the transition between winter and spring and they can also be worn during the day and night.

Lastly, he wore a pair of classic black Converse and sunglasses. Overall, I loved his outfit. He looked cool, comfortable and stylish all in one. So this season, if you’re looking to change up how you wear your plaid, just wear it over a long sleeved shirt like he did, for a worn in, hipster vibe!

Hint: To transition this into night time look, switch out the gray jeans for a pair of black ones, or if you’re heading to the beach, just grab a pair of jean shorts and you’re good to go!
