Let's Hear it for the Boys

Skinny jeans are a staple in my closet, and I can’t imagine life without them. That might sound a little dramatic, but I’m too serious — I even remember my first pair! They were in some terrible color that I wouldn’t be caught dead in them now, but it was still a moment for the books. Since then, I’ve refined my taste in denim washes, but the excitement of finding that perfect pair is still the same as the first time so many years ago.

This Fashionisto seems to have a similar love affair with my favorite pant. His outfit is perfect for the early morning class he was headed to — casual, but well put together. He wears dark gray jeans, and pairs these similarly with other gray items of clothing creating a very monochromatic look. His striped cardigan is layered over a basic white T-shirt, and he finishes off the look with gray Converse sneakers and a black messenger bag.

This monochromatic look fits perfectly with the gray weather we’ve been having here in Los Angeles, and he is able to stay stylish, while also remaining comfortable and warm. By keeping the pieces in the same color family, he is able to showcase his personal style. The skinny jeans go perfectly with his loose cardigan, and make the ensemble something special!

Whether you are on team skinny jeans or not, I hope you can appreciate the power of a great pair. They’re perfect for guys and girls, and can be paired with nearly anything. I hope that someday soon everyone has the experience of finding that magical pair of skinny jeans — I promise, it will change everything!

Hint: Converse sneakers are a great finishing touch to so many different types of outfits. Try the traditional black style or branch out — there are so many different colors to play with!
