STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Keep it Classic

STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Keep it Classic

As we all know, a classic can never go out of style, and denim is no exception. It’s now officially winter in Los Angeles, which means the weather drops dramatically and we all start contemplating whether or not we should be hiding behind our favorite oversized sweatshirts. If you’re finding yourself in this fashion catastrophe, just remember you can keep warm by much more than a mere sweatshirt and a pair of fuzzy socks.

It is possible to keep it simple while simultaneously keeping your style, as demonstrated flawlessly by this charming Fashionisto. He mimics a James Dean type of look while adding a few modern day as well as personal twists. Our Fashionisto traded in leather jackets and boots for fur-lined denim and all-white hi-tops. However, he keeps the look classic by a tucked in white tee with a ripped out collar, revealing the traditional yet edgy side of his style. He layered it with a vintage and fur-lined, medium wash denim jacket proving it’s possible to be comfortable AND stylish. The tucked in white tee shows off his brown leather Ralph Lauren belt, which he says was one of his favorite finds at his local Goodwill store. (Can you say lucky?!) The brown on the belt adds a bit of a color pop against the black jeans and white shirt, making this classic look stand out a tad more.

This Fashionisto has a not-so traditional DIY routine for his jeans. He doesn’t shred, sew or purposely distress his denim. He explained that the holes are 100% natural and that he has never intentionally ripped his jeans. Some of us clueless (and jealous) fashionista/o’s might be wondering how he got these perfectly distressed holes. His secret is simple. “I just skate,” he says, “The more you skate the more you fall, the holes just happen after a while.”

Well, there you have it, my fellow Fashionista/o’s. I guess skating is the answer to all of our distressed needs. And if you’re ever having a fashion crisis, always remember to keep it classic.
