STYLE ADVICE: Playful Pairing

STYLE ADVICE: Playful Pairing

I know it’s very hard for people to leave their comfort zone and try new things (it’s called the comfort zone for a reason). However, when it comes to fashion and style, I always say the bolder, the better! Although it is much easier to pair classic pieces together, trying something different will make you look more unique and stand out from the crowd. This is especially true for guys who cycle the same white and blue shirts in and out of their closets each day of the week. The next time you get ready for class, your internship, or your job, refer back to this article!

This Fashionisto’s outfit looks classic and simple, but is still really eye-catching. This is because of the pieces he paired together and the accessories he chose. He’s wearing a patterned button-down tucked into a pair of slim fit navy pants. I really like the fit of these pants on him and the slight cropped leg that shows a bit skin, which is perfect for the new spring weather. A brightly colored F.H. Wadsworth belt brings this look together and adds the perfect pop of color to the ensemble. Keeping the rest of his outfit in neutral colors also really helps bring attention to the belt.

Another great part of this outfit was his shoes. These gray velvet Daniele Alessandrini oxfords reflect the light so beautifully. These were an especially bold choice for him to pair with his outfit, since they are a statement piece as well. However, all the items he is wearing complement one another nicely and come together to create a very stylish look.
