LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: Slick Essentials

Let's Hear it for the Boys

As temperatures finally break through the negatives, layers are shed and a new hope is found. No longer must we keep ourselves beneath baggy coats and heavy boots. Spring is just around the corner and anything above 30 degrees is akin to paradise.

This Fashionisto knows how to create a stylish and appropriate transition into the warmer temperatures. His look is casual, refreshing and spot on. To start, the main focus of this outfit is his bomber jacket. The olive color stands out amongst the monochromatic palette of the rest of his outfit. It’s also a staple of the men’s 2014 wardrobe. The jacket is worn effortlessly over a basic slate tee with slim black pants and black Converse All Star high-tops to match. The look is a look that, while sparsely accessorized, appears signature and unmistakably “street style”. My favorite part about this Fashionisto’s outfit are his round sunglasses that give the outfit its individual feel with a bit of throwback vibes in the mix.

Hint: This look is all about keeping it to the essentials while adding a bit of personal flare to make the outfit look polished and unique. The best way to get this look is to start with a bomber jacket. My personal favorite is this suede jacket from Topman. The color and material create a look that is runway-esque. Next, add in some staples such as these black pants from Dr. Denim (an excellent place for tighter-than-tight denim) and a loose basic tee like this one by Alexander Wang sold at Opening Ceremony. Lastly, make sure to slip on a pair of high-top Chucks and a statement-making pair of sunglasses such as this pair from ASOS.
