April showers bring May flowers; at least, I hope. With springtime comes the inevitable rain, and we Chicagoans know better than anyone how important it is to be ready for that. Boys tend to shy away from color, but this Fashionisto shows us that there’s no need for that. It’s springtime boys, so whip out your brightest and happiest colors!

This Fashionisto is bold in red. Red is a very powerful color, and you’re guaranteed to impress when you enter a room wearing red apparel. Rain jackets have a bad reputation of being ugly and a little dorky, but this rain jacket proves quite the opposite. With a secret cheetah print hidden on in the inside lining, this rain jacket is ready for any sort of weather. I’m a huge fan of cheetah print, and I think it’s very brave of guys to wear more eccentric prints – go for it guys!

On the bottom, our Fashionisto wears skinny blue jeans and gray chukkas. You can never go wrong with skinny jeans, and they create a much cleaner silhouette than baggy jeans. I think every guy should definitely invest in a really nice pair of skinny jeans. They go with absolutely everything! For accessories, this Fashionisto wears a timeless brown leather watch, which is also an essential. Don’t be afraid to splurge on watches because you’ll end up wearing them daily. Our Fashionisto is definitely not afraid to be bold, which I think is incredibly inspiring!
