Sunny blue skies finally replaced the thick grey clouds that covered the city of Taichung through a week of non-stop rainfall. People of all ages (myself included) embraced this opportunity to head downtown to enjoy a pleasant Saturday afternoon in the sun. I took the chance to seek out Fashionista/os in an area where stylish people are known to wander.
While style-watching with a friend at an outdoor art exhibit, I spotted this Fashionisto strolling about with his family, sporting an outfit exemplifying men’s summer style. His outfit consists of a neutral color scheme, which suits the casual occasion of spending time with family perfectly. The classic shirt and chino shorts duo have always been a staple in men’s fashion every summer, and this Fashionisto adapts this look, while also giving it an update by opting for a chambray shirt, which has quickly become a trend among both girls and guys this year. Roll up the sleeves of a shirt, like this Fashionisto, to get a laid back look.
Hanging out with family members calls for an outfit that’s styled towards the moderate side and less towards the extreme. Some Fashionisto/as might find it difficult to find a middle ground between looking fashionable and looking modest, but take a note from this Fashionisto and load up on the accessories. It’s the little things that make the outfit anyway! This Fashionisto wears a straw fedora with brown leather loafers which complements the neutral color palette of his outfit, while also adding a nautical meets beach feel. Ray-Ban Wayfarers are known as classics that will never go out of style. Wear them to complete an outfit, like this Fashionisto, who sports the sunglasses in black.
I’ve noticed in many Asian countries that handbags and beaded bracelets are not just limited to females. As this Fashionisto shows, with the right color scheme and outfit, guys can pull off the look too.
One Simple Change: The versatility of the chambray shirt makes it a must have for the summer holidays. To transition this outfit for a night out, lose the sunglasses and fedora, swap the shorts for pants of the same shade and tuck the chambray shirt in with a dark belt.
