ALL IN THE DETAILS: Button-Downs

In a city like Chicago, finding a style that makes you stand out yet keeps up with the trends at an affordable price can be a challenge. If you’re a guy, it may be a lot harder to find those accent pieces that add just the right pop without being over the top. However, don’t underestimate the power of a classic watch paired with a crisp button-down.

People often say that “less is more,” but in this case, the black button-down adds the perfect complement to this casual look. It says, “Look at me, I’m stylish, but I’m doing it subtly.” The brown-colored cargo pants went out of season, but they are making a bold statement cuffed over these snazzy sneakers. The special thing about sneakers is that you can dress them up or down depending on the occasion. They are one of the most versatile men’s shoes of this summer.

Creating just the right casual feel, the long sleeve, collared button-down makes for a comfortable go-to in the summer days of the Windy City. Fellas, it is a trend to wear prints! It is no longer a thing for just women and young girls. Heck, the guys are wearing it better than we are. The black polka-dots on this crisp shirt are giving this look the exact attention it deserves!

This Fashionisto’s hair is even an accessory. The graphic design resembles Kanye West’s hair trend that he’s been rocking this summer. Who says details can only be in clothes?

How To: If this isn’t quite the look you would go for but you love the pieces, try this look with oxfords instead of sneakers or a T-shirt in place of the button-down.
