LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: Sk8ter Boy

Attention Tony Hawk, Ryan Sheckler and Rob Dyrdek. Calling all skaters. Grunge is in for this 2013 summer street style. Bring out your inner nineties grunge and skater boy.

This is a simple and doable look. This Fashionisto shows his true style and I like that he seems so genuine. His colorful and rugged skateboard is the only accessory he needs.

This Fashionisto shows that colored jeans are not only for girls. He is rocking the bright bottoms like these. I have said it before and I will say it again—it is all about the cuff. Look at how he cuffed his jeans just enough to give his ankles a little bit of room to breathe. Do not be afraid of cuffing your jeans! It is a trend that is fun and relaxed. The pops of color with his navy blue hat and coral pants are great mix-ins to his gray shoes and shirt that stabilize the look. He mixed color and personality in a laid back way that isn’t flashy. You could also try matching black socks and black shoes like these Vans. This would complement a pair of shorts or a cuffed pair of pants, as shown in rag and bone’s fall 2013 skater inspired menswear collection. A part of this look that you could try is to add bright colors and/or camouflage. Pump up the volume on this trend by wearing neon colors.

In typical skater fashion, a hat is necessary to hide the hair you don’t want to fix that day. You could try a beanie instead of a baseball hat like he is wearing. Try this one that supports a good cause!

Hint: Chill out with your style! It’s summer, have some fun with your fashion and go for the comfortable look that the skaters show us.
