STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Not Your Grandpa’s Sweater

Style Advice of the Week

When it comes to men’s style, I’m all for the classic look of a sweater over a button-down. However you define your personal style, I think you can always make the pairing work for you; this Fashionisto proves my theory.

This sweater isn’t your typical sweatshirt, obviously. It’s a little different and a little bold and it’s certainly not something you see every day, but it works. Mixing a preppy silhouette with more modern and trendy details is exactly what fashion is about. Finding that balance between quirky, stylish, fitted and personalized style is just what makes a good outfit.

Take some cues from this Fashionisto and look for a quirky statement piece to add to a basic outfit. A graphic T-shirt or sweatshirt would be perfect. Whether gangster teddy bears are your thing (personally, I think they should be everyone’s thing) or not, there are a lot of different ways to add a modern twist to your look. This sweatshirt would be perfect over a basic button-down or to wear on its own.

Add a snapback to complete the look. Snapbacks are, like most trendy accessories, absolutely terrible if you don’t know how to wear them the right way. Follow this Fashionisto’s lead and use a snapback to top off a balanced look.

If you’re wondering what shoes to wear, Vans are always a good option. Luckily, there are about four hundred million (may or may not be slightly exaggerating) different colors and patterns of Vans, so whatever your style is you’ll be good to go.
