Take advantage of the warmer days, for they are sure not to stay. In Illinois, snow comes and goes too fast. So when the opportunity comes, ditch the coat and put on some layers. This week, our Fashionisto is the perfect example of layering well. He does it effortlessly in a way that doesn’t make him look like he is suited up to go cut down a tree.
This Fashionisto settles for the classic plaid but makes a statement with the bold red, which are offset by the green and purple stripes. Word of advice: do not be afraid to take color risks. Go crazy and pair colors next to each other on the color wheel, forget what you learned in kindergarten art class. A white thermal is perfect underneath. Throw on a dark wash jean, stick with the Sperrys and you are all set. While everyone else is wearing the classic leather, try a different color or style to make a statement. The beanie he is sporting doesn’t have to be taken off inside, think of it as an accessory. Rock it everywhere! If extra layers are needed, grab a sweater or cardigan in any color represented on the plaid shirt.
Hint: Long hair doesn’t have to go! Grow out that hair and take notes from Hollywood. Men like Johnny Depp and Brad Pitt wear it well.
