LET’S HEAR IT FOR THE BOYS: Wild Thing

Leopard print has been showing up in Fashionistas' closets all season long, but never have I seen it on a male counterpart! Even looking through the fall fashion shows, I had a difficult time trying to find the predominately female fashion trend on the male runway. But I give props to this week’s Fashionisto, as he shows that the boys can also rock this mainly female trend!

When I asked where this Fashionisto found his fantastic faux calfskin leopard print shirt, he told me it was from from a vintage shop in Korea. I searched for a shirt like this, but all my go-to websites did not carry the pattern for men! Luckily, I found a Marc by Marc Jacobs cardigan from STYLEBOP.com in a subdued color. On the runway, Roberto Cavalli showcases a few daring pattern trends, from fur-lined jackets to asymmetrical print pants, and Jimmy Choo has a great leopard print loafer as well. 

What I really love about this fearless Fashionisto's ensemble is his use of blending style cultures, very much like this post from a few weeks ago. This Fashionisto used slim fit jeans and similar Adidas Campus 2.0 shoes to complement the loud leopard print shirt and accessorized his outfit with Ray-Ban glasses and a snap-back hat.

My advice for this week, Fashionistos, is dare to be daring. Although there are some trends that are more female-dominated, do not be scared to try it out yourself! This Fashionisto does a wonderful job combining a hip-hop style with an off-the-runway trend. With a bit of imagination and creativity, you too will be able to rock a look as fearless as his!
