STYLE ADVICE: Distressed Neutrals

May 15th, 2017 at 2:00am

As the end of the semester is quickly approaching, we are starting to get ready for the transition from spring into summer. This is one of my favorite times of the year because nature starts to come alive, and everyone’s attitudes match this brand new liveliness. This time of year makes people generally think of bright, saturated colors. However, I have always liked to focus more on neutral tones, which happen to be super trendy right now.

I chose to pull some inspiration for my own style from this Fashionisto’s look because his style is pretty similar to my own. I always lean towards neutral colors and androgynous shapes, which is exactly what is portrayed in this look. Because of the androgynous silhouettes, this look can easily be worn by both men and women. Starting with the basics, he is sporting some black skinny jeans, a classic piece you can’t go wrong with. Paired with that he has chosen an oversize, distressed T-shirt. Something that has been really trendy lately besides neutral colors is the distressed style. Ripped up T-shirts and jeans are all the rage and can be found at many different stores. This T-shirt from ASOS has similar distressed details but offers a more feminine fit.

Layered on top he is wearing a military style button-down shirt. The muted green of this shirt acts as a neutral color and matches everything. For accessories, he went with simple pieces that pull the look together. The white sneakers and white cap match perfectly and don’t distract from the outfit. As a statement, he is wearing a leather watch and bracelet that are simple and earthy. I can see this Fashionisto sporting this look anywhere from just hanging out with friends, to class, to going to parties. Also, with the versatility of this outfit, it is easily adaptable into a women’s look. I love it so much that I might even throw it on and go join him!
