WHAT TO WEAR: Masculine Elegance

It’s the dead of winter here in Kentucky, and I couldn’t be happier. While most people’s favorite part about this season is sipping on hot cocoa and getting snuggly by the fire, mine is spectating everyone’s winter ensembles. Looking at layers, everything suede, and darker color tones just make me feel some type of way. I live for cold weather fashion.

I was sitting at Starbucks when I spotted the cutest Fashionisto. I approached him and asked if I could take some pictures of his outfit; he was very into it. After talking with him, I learned that he’s sassy, stylish, and my favorite type of person. It turns out that he is also a fashion merchandising major and worships the fashion gods. He showed me pictures of his favorite outfits, and two hours later I finally snapped some pictures of him. We became friends very quickly.

This outfit encompasses masculine elegance. My favorite part about it is the statement scarf. Soft and cozy, the dark tones of the scarf give the whole look a stylish yet masculine vibe. The ever-so-loved black Chelsea boots really pull together the look, adding sophistication and class—two things that men should strive for in their day-to-day looks. Another thing I adore about this look is the coat; it provides warmth and, once again, is a very classic style.

Men’s fashion is underrated in my opinion. I think it’s important for men to embrace their stylish side. Putting together a simple and chic look like this one can change someone’s persona entirely, changing the average guy into a well put-together man.
