ALL IN THE DETAILS: Bird is the Word

Who doesn’t love a classic button-down and short shorts for summer? This Fashionisto certainly understands how to transition his preppy aesthetic into the summertime. Above-the-knee shorts are definitely a popular look for Fashionistso this summer, and this one certainly knows how to make this cool look work. By choosing a pair of khaki shorts and taking them above the knee, he adds a trendy spin on the classic summer go-to.

The real kicker for this Fashionisto’s look? His shoes. He definitely understands the importance of an unexpected element. While his duck print Vans might incorporate a well-known silhouette, it is the print that adds a wow factor.

What’s even better is how all the small details within his look tie together in color or texture. The blue of his shirt plays up the blue in his shoes. His khaki pants are reminiscent of the canvas in his shoes. And if that wasn’t enough, his multicolor rope bracelet matches perfectly with his blue button-down and khaki shorts. What can I say? I’m a sucker for a look that comes together with the tiniest details.
