This Fashionisto’s outfit is the definition of casual — perfect for going to class, walking around Carytown or hanging out with friends. Although casual can sometimes come across as bland or thrown together, his look is anything but. The Fashionisto accomplishes this with his tribal print shoes. Across the entirety of men’s and women’s fashion and street style, tribal print has become a summer favorite.
Patterns are seen on virtually any kind of clothing or accessory, from sunglasses to T-shirts. The intricate pattern on his sneakers adds exciting elements to his overall get-up. The multiple colors among the pattern play into and correlate smoothly with his graphic tee. The graphic tee dates back to the 1950s, and is a fundamental constant amidst the other ever-changing fads and trends in fashion. To this day, the graphic tee is one of the most popular shirts in the retail world, and is a reliable go-to for many Fashionistos and Fashionistas. This Fashionisto combines his tee and shoes with simple summer shorts.
Along with his base pieces, this Fashionsito chose complementing accessories. The one that particularly stands out is the bandana hanging from his short’s right pocket. Not often is a bandana worn this way, although it was a bold move. It isn’t fastened purposefully around his head or neck, but looks as though it was placed there absentmindedly. This enhances the notion that the ensemble is very casual, but the added detail gives the look depth.
Also, adding a watch in a shiny silver finish stands out more than a brown or black one would, drawing eyes to that adornment as well. The messenger bag completes the accessories, which ties this look together like a bow.
Hint: If you’re feeling really bold, spread the tribal print to an entire shirt. For an evening look, try showing the tribal print through a tie. Always remember to accentuate the colors in the pattern throughout the rest of your look!
