LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: Surprising Style

Let's Hear it for the Boys

I always love finding an unexpected twist in any outfit — you know, the kind that makes you stop dead in your tracks and do a double take. That’s exactly the feeling I had when I saw this Fashionisto on his way home from work. I love how this Fashionisto plays with different aspects of his outfit, giving menswear a unique twist and a laid back vibe. At first, his outfit seems typical for December — a solid gray beanie, a wool coat and a cozy plaid scarf. However, what strikes me about his ensemble are his shoes, Sanüks. Sanüks are most famous for being surfer-friendly, laid back and casual sandals! Of course, I was surprised to find a look inspired by surfers here in the freezing weather. As usual though, this Fashionisto makes the look his own.

He keeps the outfit cool by sticking to a simple color scheme of gray and red. The pop of color is just another way he’ll turn heads on the street! I also really love this Fashionisto’s gauged ears. Even though I have my share of piercings, gauges can be a little intimidating. But, his don’t take attention away from his outfit, but rather add to the casual feel his style gives off.

Sometimes accessorizing may seem like a no-brainer, but the little details like this Fashionisto’s shoes and earrings really make all the difference. Taking a standard look and making it your own is definitely a way to stand out among the crowds.

Hint: It can be difficult to blend summer and winter together like this Fashionisto does. Grab a fun, summery top like this one from Ripcurl and pair it with a jacket and some boots. You can also try wearing a cozy winter sweater with your favorite summer shorts if the weather permits.
