LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: The Modern Dapper Gentleman.

Let's Hear it for the Boys

In my honest opinion, to be dapper takes time, patience and practice. Honestly, it takes practice to understand how articles of clothing in outfit choices complement each other. One has to learn which colors work well with other colors, as well as how to pair different pieces of clothing together. You want to make a powerful statement in your outfit choice that grabs the attention of everyone around you. That being said, when I saw this Fashionisto in New York City pulling off the dapper look spectacularly, I knew instantly that I wanted to document it!

This Fashionisto, from head to toe, is wearing a quarter button long sleeve black and white checkered shirt, paired with grayish blue fitted pants. His khaki colored chukka boot footwear have signs of rugged wear and tear, which symbolizes the “city that never sleeps” characteristic that New York City is known for. His accessory of choice was a red, white and blue American colored themed scarf, which I loved instantly. To top it all off, the overcoat he was wearing completed and brought together the whole look he was going for.

Hint: Guys, your coat completes your outfit! Try to wear a coat that complements the colors that are within your outfit. For example, this Fashionisto played with the color black, and his coat complements the black found in his shirt.
