LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: Polished in Plaid

Let's Hear it for the Boys

As expected, with every season comes a new fashion trend. With fall, we see vests and neutrals, winter brings puffy jackets and boots and spring and summer share shorts, pastels, and colors. The one piece that remains eternal through all of these seasons, however, is the plaid shirt. Whether in a flannel material or a classic cotton, plaid brings a new element to any outfit.

As this Fashionisto displays, plaid is a perfect addition to any outfit no matter what season. Since winter in New Orleans is not typical weather, this Fashionisto embraces the endless heat by rolling up the sleeves of his shirt. He then pairs this top with a coordinating pair of blue shorts, adding a put together vibe. The Fashionisto polishes everything off with a classic brown leather belt and matching Sperry Top-Siders. He adds final touches by way of his leather messenger bag and sunglasses.

This Fashionisto’s outfit is noteworthy not only because of the shirt, but also because of the careful addition of accessories. He makes sure to match every aspect of his outfit, from belt to shoes to bag. By doing so, he makes everything look very deliberate and put together. This is an important skill that allows one to carry any outfit over from classroom to interview to dinner.

Hint: Invest in a sturdy leather belt. A belt can elevate any outfit instantly by tying everything together and adding a luxe touch. Try a classic black or brown style.
