I can’t believe that my summer in the city is almost over. Soon I’ll be packing up to go back to Boston; there will be no more sweet summery evenings in New York where those who are fashionable have a distinct taste and style. It is definitely bittersweet but returning to the streets of Boston will be a wonderful feeling as well.
With that in mind, I had to snap some photos of some great Fashionistos before I skip town. I found this Fashionisto on Houston — sporting earthy dark shades I noticed his strong sense of style right away. A plain T-shirt is offset with great accessories as well as a sick pair of shorts. His patterned shorts definitely make his outfit. The Billy Reid tweed shorts have a unique almost Aztec flavor. But when looking at them a bit more closely, one can notice that the pattern consists of simple shapes. Throwing in a pair of sunglasses and a great watch, this Fashionisto has got a well put together look.
These printed Vanguard shorts would be a good choice for a similar look, or maybe try a pair of these Topman striped shorts on for size. For an interesting take on the denim short, try this pair from River Island.
Hint: Don’t overdo it. Let the patterns do the talking and wear minimal colors and accessories with your loud shorts.
