Angela Hunt, an author who writes about how to expect the unexpected, wrote, “We need to be visionary; we have to be bold.” Being bold shouldn’t just apply to your life, it should apply to your wardrobe as well! Every Fashionista/o should have at least one stand out, wild piece that they can always go back to.
The 2013 runways seem to be full of eccentric, bold pieces for men; from incorporating a large print of a Doberman dog into Givenchy’s pre-fall men’s 2013 collection to Versace’s fall 2013 collection of out-there prints and designs. It is time for Fashionistos everywhere to get out of their comfort zone and try to make a statement! Louis Vuitton’s fall/winter 2013 men’s collection really shows off how to go from abstract, bold prints to very minimalist prints. If bold prints aren’t your style, try starting out with something a little more subtle like these Louis Vuitton animal printed jackets.
This Fashonisto’s cat lovers shirt is found online at RipNDip, a company geared towards skateboarders with a bit of a fashion edge to them. The style that RipNDip and, a similar company called The Quite Life, is a certain look that really integrates interesting designs and graphics for men.
Urban Outfitters, Topman or F As In Frank, a Canadian vintage clothing store, are other great places to try and sport this Fashionisto’s look. All three stores have a one of kind feel to the clothing that will definitely help you stand out in a crowd!
Hint: Going for a bold look is a great way to show off your style, but it is always important that when styling your outfit you mix in more simple, understated articles of clothing to let your bold piece be the statement of the outfit! Follow this Fashionisto’s pairing of a bold print with a simple white tee, jeans and a camel coloured shoe to match with the colours in the button-up and you’ll have this style down pat!
