Walking down Baystate Road, I spotted this Fashionisto relaxing on the stoop of a nearby brownstone and immediately knew he would be the next featured Fashionisto. His look is rather understated but captures a few key trends and styling tricks that have been discussed in my posts so far. Let's recap the most popular trends and discuss how to make them work for you this holiday season. While Fashionistos are packing up and heading home for holidays, space in the suitcase is usually limited. Here are a few tips and tricks on how to be a style-savvy traveler.
Lesson one: Take a note from this Fashionisto and remember to layer during your travels. Not only does adding a chunky knit scarf keep one warm on cold trains or planes, but it also frees up some space in carry-ons!
Lesson two: When the basics such as a good pair of jeans and a few button-downs are all packed, trendier items such as a statement shoe can often be forgotten. Liven up your holiday looks by exposing a colorful sock through a cuffed pant leg — a trend we have seen executed with boots and denim or chinos and sneakers. A few good rolls of the hem have proven to be a key look of the season for men's fashion here in Boston. Just remember, like seen at DSquared, two or three small rolls are usually enough.
Lesson three: Last but not least, don't forget that even a utilitarian item like a set of headphones can be a fashion statement! Personal favorite: WeSC for awesome colors and great quality.
