Here’s a shout out to all of the young men out there who aren’t afraid to play with pattern in their fashion choices; you go Glen Coco!
There’s just something about a guy who is confident enough to take a fashion risk (given that it isn’t too crazy), and I was really hoping to find a Fashionisto who fit that bill for this week’s post. After waiting and watching and not being impressed, I finally spotted this Fashionisto in all of his bright boldness on campus. While many Fashionistos are taking more chances these days by wearing more colour, it’s still pretty uncommon to see one dressed in such a loud ensemble on your average day. So kudos to this Fashionisto!
I’m a big fan of his floral crew-neck sweater; a great way for Fashionistos to take the plunge into prints is to wear a classic piece like a shirt or sweater with a fun pattern. This is a small step towards being more adventurous with your wardrobe. This Fashionisto–who was in the city to catch a flick at the Melbourne International Film Festival–told me that he was open to trying new menswear styles and that he is a big fan of street style fashion. And it shows! His top is from a Danish label called RVLT/Revolution and it certainly brightened up the cold winter day.
This Fashionisto certainly wasn’t lacking in the confidence department either, since he paired that rad sweater with a pair of mint green pants. Bottoms in a block colour are the perfect accompaniment to a printed top, but if this shade is a bit too bright for you, try a burgundy pair for an easy transition into this trend.
And what guy is ever without a classic pair of sneakers? If you don’t own a pair of comfy shoes to kick back in, you need a pair to wear out stat! This Fashionisto’s pair is from Kenji, but shoe stores like HYPE DC also have a huge selection of men’s shoes.
