A simple defining piece can add a uniqueness to any look. A singular twist to a classic outfit is enough to turn a humdrum guy into an urban gentleman. I find men’s fashion more fluid from season to season in terms of continuation of trends, as opposed to the ever-changing women’s fashion. Here are a couple of stylish gents I spotted this weekend!
Kyle Mitzel rocks an all earth tone look while doing some weekend thrifting in Midtown. The foundation of his outfit is elementary consisting of a rust colored T-shirt and pair of olive shorts. However, a few distinctive details make this look eye-catching. First, Kyle’s T-shirt is reminiscent of sedimentary rocks, an apropos visual for his earthy ensemble. Have an interesting focal point when it comes to basic tees, a cool graphic can certainly change the look of an outfit. Kyle goes sockless, an ongoing trend with penny loafers for casual occasions. Finally, tortoise Lucite wayfarers, an acrylic plastic trending in both men’s and women’s fashion accessories, top it off. Mix classic pieces with contemporary trends to achieve an expert look.
While on a late night coffee run to Weatherstone, I spotted Nick spending his evening doing the daily crossword. I was impressed by his confidence to mix patterns, which is one of my favorite trends. Nick’s mixing is subtle, just a pop of plaid over his striped sweater is perfect for a casual weekday night. If you are hesitant to mix patterns, do not be timid. Try simple patterns, such as polka dots and stripes in similar color schemes at first and as you become more comfortable try bolder, brighter prints like paisleys and florals. To keep the patterns the focus keep the rest of the outfit understated as Nick does. A classic pair of blue jeans and a silver wristwatch completes the look.
