LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: Keeping it Minimal

Let's Hear it for the Boys

This Fashionisto has the right idea and some great pieces for the perfect, on-trend, minimalist look. I can’t seem to pull myself away from simple, striped T-shirts and a pop of color, and I’ve definitely been a little curious about this sneaker wave I’ve been noticing among men’s and women’s fashion. This outfit is easy to acquire and quite simple to recreate; not only is it a full combination of staples, but it’s one big staple look itself!

The easiest, yet very crucial part of this ensemble is his perfectly fitted jeans. While denim blue can be considered a neutral, for the minimalists out there, it’s a staple and a great way to add some color. He tops off the jeans with a mid-sleeve black and white striped T-shirt, which is another great staple, as it’s casual and sleek but can really be used for any occasion. Throw on a blazer and he would be ready to go out! Here is a similar style from ASOS—even their website suggests to complete the look with a pair of fitted jeans and sneakers!

The star of this look is obviously his bright blue and red sneakers, which are extremely on-trend and nicely complete these minimal outfits and even dressier ones if done right. Amongst a huge selection of different bright colors, these similar blue and white New Balance sneakers from Urban Outfitters do the trick. If you’re curious to try out the bright sneaker trend, this type of ensemble is the perfect place to start and is probably already in your closet.

This Fashionisto encapsulated many current looks and trends in one very simple, sleek outfit. Attempting to rock stripes or bright sneakers is made simple with this look and anyone could try it too!

Hint: To dress up a pair of bright, colorful sneakers for an internship, for example, try a pair of chinos like these, cuffed a couple times, a dress shirt, tie and a blazer. The contrast in styles works well and in the end you’ll have the perfect effortlessly dressed up look.
