Typically, when it comes to men’s fashion it is often assumed that there are minimal directions one can take in the accessories department. A simple watch and minimalist necklace in the form of a chain are all some men are willing to succumb to when it comes to accessories. This Fashionisto, however, discovered that there are more to accessories than those commonly seen on males. Paired with his seasonally appropriate on-trend top, this Fashionisto nailed a unique look that can be easily achieved.
Plaids have been seen on many menswear runways this season, including J.Crew and rag & bone. A plaid shirt is a great fall staple, and you can choose one in a T-shirt style like this Fashionisto did, or you could opt for flannel for cooler days. Either option will give you a relaxed look that is stylish at the same time. ASOS and Urban Outfitters both have lots of great options for plaid shirts, so take your pick!
This Fashionisto really aced his look in the accessories department. What really drew me to his outfit was the bandana that he wore around his neck. This is not something that we normally see one accessorizing with (especially in the South, where preppy staples are an everyday norm). The bandana gave his look a unique, personal twist, and by keeping it in the same color palette as his shirt he made the accessory stand out without clashing with the focal piece of the shirt. This Fashionisto also worked in a driving cap and a great pair of shoes balanced out his accessories from head to toe.
To achieve this Fashionisto’s outdoorsy yet accessorized look, start with a pair of dark wash denim with a slim fit. Pair them with your favorite plaid shirt, and get to accessorizing! Choose a bandana in a shade that complements colors in the shirt; if a bandana isn’t your thing, you could opt for a scarf instead, especially on cooler winter days. Add a flat cap and finish off with a great pair of shoes, like this pair from Nordstrom. Pair casual, trendy pieces with personalized accessories like this Fashionisto did, and you will have a look to be reckoned with.
