LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: Don’t Step On My Blue Suede Shoes!

“It’s one for the money, two for the show, three to get ready, now go, cat, go!” It’s the late 1950s, and thanks to celebrities like Kim Novak, Marilyn Monroe and Bob Dylan, American-made Ray-Bans are flying off the shelves.  Likewise, on the radio, heart-throb Elvis has popularized the phrase “Don’t step on my blue suede shoes!” with his cover of singer Carl Perkins’ hit “Blue Suede Shoes.”

I spotted this Fashionisto swinging out in rock 'n’ roll style at Square 80 on a sunny day. I immediately noticed his midnight-blue suede oxfords, accented with crisp white soles and laces. He kept it simple with a blue tartan plaid button-down and dark wash skinny jeans cuffed right at the ankle. He accessorized with a multi-colored watch by Mondaine, and of course, signature original Wayfarer sunglasses by Ray-Ban. This look is perfect because of the sheer simplicity, and is perfect for these breezy, late summer days.

To keep rocking out fashionably, pair a solid, long-sleeved button-down with a pair of fitted trousers. Be sure that the top and trousers are on the opposite sides of the spectrum when it comes to color. Don’t forget the footwear; two-toned saddled or solid oxfords will add a kick (pun intended) to this look. Finish off with square-framed sunglasses, and you’re ready to roll!
