LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: Southern Comfort

Let's Hear it for the Boys

This polar vortex that has been affecting most of our schools for the past month has finally come to an end! Gone are the days where you have to preheat your car and wear more than one coat to class — at least, I hope this is the case for all of us in Georgia! The first sighting of the sun really got the students in Savannah a little overly excited. Everyone rushing to slip into some sandals and shorts. Southerners just aren’t used to this kind of cold front, and are sometimes unsure of what to do when the climate is in such an in-between state. While the weather has definitely improved around here, it’s just a little too soon for those spring wardrobes to come rushing out of your closet just yet.

This Fashionisto chose the ideal outfit for this 65-degree weather we’ve been having lately. At first glance, he seems to be wearing a very simple neutral-colored look. However, when you pay attention to the minor details he chose to incorporate, it becomes something much more. The navy striped trim on his white hooded sweater hints at the forever in vogue nautical trend while his Ralph Lauren plaid button-down peeking out gives an unexpected preppy punch to the look. A patterned shirt, such as this one, is an easy way for you boys to show a little bit of your personality when you’re wearing an otherwise simple outfit. Your options are endless because the style comes in such a variety of colors and prints! He tops off his look with the perfect amount of accessories. From his coordinated leather shoes and bag to his chic oversized Ray-Bans, he knows how to highlight an otherwise simple outfit with only a few key accessories. This Fashionisto is not too hot, not too cold — just right for this ever-changing weather down south!

Hint: While an abrupt change in weather might shock you, don’t let it affect your ability to get creative with what you wear. Mix and match some of your heavier items with your lighter ones. For example, wear a casual graphic T-shirt with pants or a cable-knit sweater with a pair of shorts. The look can be easily pulled together with a few of your favorite accessories to create an outfit that is truly yours. The outcome will be a style that is comfortable, yet still appropriate for the temperature.
