LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: Patterns and Puzzles for Fashion

Let's Hear it for the Boys

Vintage is back! It's taking Fashionistos by storm. Do you jump on board or lag behind? Either way, bold, different choices always make statements whether vintage or modern.

I spotted today’s Fashionisto in the Journalism library studying before an exam. What caught my eye was the bold checker board squares and patterns knit into his sweater. When asked where the sweater was purchased, the Fashionisto confirmed my suspicions. It was vintage, of course! He managed to seize the age-old sweater from his aunt whom was having a garage sale. He made the smart choice of offsetting the sweater with a pair of khaki pants from the Gap. 

At times, simplicity is essential to any look. His choice to wear a V-neck white T-shirt adds balance to the busy sweater. To bring a sharp look to the ensemble, he chose nude Sperry loafers. Clearly he knows how to manage a casual but sharp vintage look. As if the ensemble didn’t already give character, the Fashionisto wore multi-colored socks which can be purchased at Target.

Light sweaters are ideal for transitioning seasons. Without excessive crimping and alterations, they are easy to pair with jeans, slacks or even shorts. Urban Outfitters has a great selection of men’s sweaters for the season.
