Let's Hear it for the Boys

I consider myself a major fashion aficionado. Every season I take great pleasure in reading about the upcoming trends and learning about the new it colors. While I love colors on other people, I am guilty of turning to neutrals when it comes to my own wardrobe. I find myself consistently wearing head-to-toe black, no matter how much I try to diversify my color spectrum. When I saw this Fashionisto on the street, I loved how he incorporated color into his look in a very wearable, understated way.

It is always so difficult to show off one’s fashion sense when engulfed in clunky, plain (usually black) outerwear. That’s why I love this Fashionisto’s winter coat so much: He avoids blending into the sea of black by wearing this stylish two-tone jacket. The brown and dark teal complement each other perfectly and add a dose of muted color to his look. What is even better about the color combination of his parka is that it matches many other shades, making it extremely versatile. His simple pairing of the brown and teal jacket with his khaki pants is upgraded by his unique beanie. The cool red, brown and black yarn of his beanie is an interesting take on a classic knit cap.

Hint: If you like how this Fashionisto stands out from the crowd in his two-tone coat, pick a jacket with a stylish color combination! Choose a coat with interesting hues, but make sure they are somewhat muted so the coat matches the rest of your wardrobe. Wear a parka like this one with gray jeans for a bright, stylish outfit. If you want to try out the two-tone trend with a twist, play with the textures of your clothes. This WESC navy blue jacket has brown leather sleeves and would look great with a simple pair of dark wash jeans. Add a unique beanie like this Fashionisto for more style points!
