Often times when deciding on an what to wear, we tend to try and match everything together perfectly and correctly coordinate all the items and colours. However, adding a pop of colour can not only add character, but also make an outfit more appealing. I spotted this trendy fashionisto outside of the student centre on campus, and I instantly noticed the pop of blue in his attire, regardless of the outfit being very relaxed.
The basic items that make up this Fashionisto's look are his black pants, brown jacket, brown shoes, and brown belt. Lots of brown! His jacket has a grey hoodie attached to it, but one may seperately add a grey hoodie. These are essential pieces that every male/female should own as they could be put together into many different outfits. Brown is a classic neutral colour that fits together nicely with various different colours, and grey is another neutral hue that compliments everything.
What really stood out to me about this Fashionisto's outfit was the light wash blue denim shirt. I thought it was really worth adding a touch of colour because it added spice and allowed him to stand out instead of blending in with everything around him. He could have just added a plain white tee and ran out the door, but the blue denim shirt definitely makes his ensemble more appealing to the eye and completes his outfit.
To top everything off, this Fashionisto added brown shoes and a gold watch. The shoes perfectly match the jacket, making the brown in his attire very clear to the eye and pop against the blue denim shirt. As for the gold watch, it is a classic item and is brought out by the black pants, and makes the perfect asseccory for a laid back urban look. All the earthy colours such as black, brown, blue and grey were present. Although the blue shirt does stand out from the other pieces, the outfit is in complete harmony as they are all calm and neutral colours.
Hint: When working with basics in neutrals such as black, brown or grey, adding a hint of colour by wearing a light wash top. It not only brings the basic items out, but also makes for a fun yet relaxing ensemble.
