LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: All Black Everything

Let's Hear it for the Boys

There's really only one color a Fashionisto can wear from head to toe without looking ridiculous. Too much blue and you're a smurf; too much green and you're a leprechaun; too much white and you're Colonel Sanders. The one color that looks great and does not carry the weight of a condescending joke is black. This Fashionisto represents how men can wear all black and really pull it off.

Wearing all of the same color such as black could make it look like your trying way too hard, so pay attention to this Fashionisto’s fit choices. Notice that this Fashionisto’s legs look extremely long; this is evident because of the color and the way his pants fit. The slim jeans hug his legs and this is complemented by a loose fitting shirt. Too many skinny items are not appealing and too many baggy items are not either. However, you look extremely fashionable with relatively no effort by pairing a skinny jean with a loose fitting shirt. Give it a try!

Black is a very appealing color that adds a lot of size to a person. This Fashionisto is already pretty tall, however he looks additionally long because of his outfit choice. Wearing a shoe, such as a wingtip, pairs nicely with a slim jean and when both of these items are the same color it appears as if your legs go on forever. This is a good thing to try if you're a shorter person, I bet people will ask if you have gotten taller. Lastly, notice that this Fashionisto’s shirt is indeed loose, but still fits. Wearing a size too big will overpower your outfit and shrink you, not add to the length you're going for.

With this being said, black shoes, pants and shirts are staple items in a man’s wardrobe. Every now and then put all three of those items together and you will have yourself a great looking outfit.

Hint: While wearing all black makes for a great outfit, adding a bright colored accessory could really take the outfit to the next level. Try a bracelet, which are extremely popular right now.

LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: All Black Everything

Let's Hear it for the Boys

Wearing all black has been a trend associated with New Yorkers, as well as the fashion world, for a while. This Fashionisto was spotted in his all black outfit, proving you can never go wrong with black, since it matches everything. Head to toe black makes your accessories stand out more, as my eyes were drawn to this Fashionisto's camel scarf and the Nike logo of his vintage sneakers. The all black look has been trending in Paris, as there has been a blackout on the runways this season courtesy of designers, including Givenchy’s head-to-toe colorless looks.

The black wool blend jacket gives the impression of a pea coat but has a trendy zipper front. For a similar jacket with pockets, check out Filson's 'Greenwood' Wool Jacket that has a soft moleskin lining. For a more traditional option still with a zipper front, Archival Clothing recently came out with a wax jacket that is made of a cotton/nylon fabric similar to a lightweight Barbour jacket.

Hint: If you are going to go for the all black look, make sure you incorporate some bold accessories or a plain T-shirt underneath. To find these Fashionisto’s Nike sneakers, check out these Nike Sweet Legacy shoes for the white on black look.
