ALL IN THE DETAILS: Simple Solution

Here is the deal with patterns. They are fun and playful, but they can be tricky. Mixing and matching patterns can make a very unique outfit, but if done wrong, it can just make a disaster. Patterns are not to be feared, though. The solution to this fashion challenge is to keep it simple. Let one article of clothing be loud and textured. Balance it out by keeping other pieces neutral. Look to this Fashionisto if you want to perfect pattern wearing this season.

Wanting preppy shorts to be the focus of his outfit, this Fashionisto kept everything else simple. Building off from the shorts, he chose a basic black and gray baseball T-shirt. He paired this with a black leather belt. To complete this casual look, he chose Sperry Top-Siders. Girl or guy, these are the perfect casual boat shoes. They can be worn for a variety of different occasions. These three items that were paired with the shorts are staple pieces that any closet would benefit from.

This look is quick to put together. It is also casual enough to wear all summer long. The warm weather means fewer layers, making it even easier to wear patterns. I highly encourage everyone to try this simple solution this summer

How To: Fashionistos, you might find pulling off patterned shorts somewhat hard. But you need to think simple. With patterned shorts, try sticking to a basic top. If you like the look this Fashionisto is sporting but need something a little more formal, go for a plain polo shirt or a button-down.
