BEAUTY BAR: The Neoteric Man

In the beginning, there was man. He was strong, rugged, and raw. Things haven’t changed too much since then. I mean sure, we’ve seen ups and downs; but recently there has been a tradition revival. Contemporarily speaking, it started with the lumberjack look. This laid the foundation for the bearded movement. The momentum stayed strong thanks to the infamous hipster ensemble. Most recently, this trend has found a home within glitter beards. Glitter. Beards.

Don’t get me wrong. I respect all styles, so if that’s your cup of tea, go for it. However, I’d like to pose the idea of moving forward. It’s time to shed those beards. It’s time to cast away the rags. It’s time clean up. Maybe it’s because of the coincidental timeline, but as we millennials get older, we should start dressing with a little more purpose.

Introducing the neoteric man. He dawns a clean and slick haircut, has a cohesive palette in wardrobe, and is influenced by cross-cultural fashion. I just so happened to run into one such man. This post-modern Fashionisto starts the outfit with some prime Dylan Rieder Huf semi-slip ons. This black leather foot candy really sets the foundation for the look. The meat of the outfit comes in with some black, cuffed shorts accompanied by a Forever 21 black long sleeve. However, what really sets this ensemble in the future is the dark denim kimono he layers on top of it all. This is the cultural bit I mentioned before. I always recommend adding your own flare, and that’s exactly what he did. This should interest all you anime fans out there; he sewed a patch from one of his favorite series onto the back. And lastly, of course, he’s got his trusty skateboard as the world’s best accessory.

There you have it. A timeless and chic look that is guaranteed to have people making double takes. It’s time to move on and embrace the future. It doesn’t take a fortuneteller to know you’ll look good in it.
