Let's Hear it for the Boys

The year 2014 just began and I don’t know about you guys, but I am so anxious for warm weather, the beach and summertime. Living in New Jersey, I am over the negative degree wind chills and constant snow. Summer fashion is one of my favorites, so adding a splash of summer into my outfits is a must. That’s why I love seeing people incorporate seasonal trends into their everyday ensembles. Who says shorts can only be worn during the warm summer or that leather is solely for the frigid winter? Creativity is key to being fashionable and that is not something today’s Fashionisto lacks!

Some people tend to believe that the famous Aztec print is strictly for the summer. However, I am seeing more people rock the unique pattern more than ever before. I’ve seen it in various colors from hot pink to black and multicolored to basic. In any case, people cannot get enough of this print. So far, I’ve seen men wear Aztec print coats, pants, shoes and in this case, an edgy yet classic button-down. No matter how Fashionista/os wear it, it always catches my attention.

This funky and unique shirt is definitely the focus of this Fashionisto’s outfit. He rocks a black and white Aztec print button-down from Urban Outfitters and pairs it with basic dark wash jeans. He tops off his look with a pair of classic all black Converse sneakers. Accessory wise, he wears a simple and classy silver Fossil watch. Want to spice up your everyday look? Grab some patterns and give it a go! Start the new year right by trying something new. Chuck that boring white T-shirt out the window and get a little funky.

Hint: Showing your peers that you can rock edgy patterns, like Aztec, during any season of the year not only shows your fashion sense, but your bold personality as well. You can do this with camouflage pants, Aztec print Vans or even just a checkered button-down. No matter what the piece of fun may be, I guarantee you will catch the eyes of many inspired colleagues.
