Let's Hear it for the Boys

Sometimes we have to admit we hate the cold weather. The more clothes we wear, the more unflattering we feel. Now, this boy got my attention…and every other girl’s on campus! The weather might have been 47 degrees, but that didn’t stop him from looking his best. I had to ask, how did he stay warm walking to class? His answer: “Oh, that’s because I have the flannel that keeps me warm.” Thankfully for this flannel, boys and girls can stay warm, look cute, casual and be comfortable.

This Fashionisto wanted to look good for class rather than wear sweats, a t-shirt and sneakers, and in my opinion he accomplished his goal, considering all the girls kept staring. He pulled out classic J.Crew chinos and a gray V-neck from Hollister Co., giving it a nice, put together look without trying too hard. Also, instead of wearing his Nike sneakers, he wore his Rockport boat shoes—a good accessory for a casual day, a comfortable fit and shoes you can wear through all seasons. Last but not least, this Fashionsto wore his warm, flannel coat from Hollister Co. with his sleeves rolled up so he can show off his casual yet fancy, black Fossil watch. His timepiece doubles as a great accessory and keeps him on time for all his classes. Bonus!

So Fashionistos or Fashionistas, if you’re looking for a cute, casual, warm, effortless look, go get your flannel coat at stores like Hollister Co., Abercrombie & Fitch, Polo Ralph Lauren and J.Crew. Trust me, you won’t regret it!

Hint: Boys, put together a simple outfit and bump up your look with a bold, colorful flannel. No need to think too much about colors; you’ll look good, casual, effortless and fashion forward.
