When it comes to men’s fashion, a little detail can go a long way and a lot can, well, go even further. My appreciation for a guy in a well-dressed outfit is infinite as it’s easy for anyone to assume that guys put less effort into their appearance than women. Let’s all make it clear that men may have it even more difficult as variety in clothing pieces is presumably less than that of a woman’s. If there’s one thing I’m admiring in men’s fashion right now it’s printed button-down shirts: florals, stripes, polka-dots, you name it. These pieces are great for giving a summery outfit a more layered, fall look and in the right pattern, can completely make an outfit.

I came across this Fashionisto picking up a couple button-down shirts himself while wearing one that caught my attention. Paisley is a pattern that somehow always seeps into fall fashion but the cool blue tones in his thrifted version gave this trend a refreshing, new appeal. He chose to let the pattern stand out with a cut-off white T-shirt and rolled up shorts in a similar blue tone. Scrunched up socks, a leather belt and round sunglasses finish his look and show that he’s paying attention to all the small details.

Take inspiration from his ensemble by looking for unique button-downs and layering it over simple colors that reflect the print of the shirt. Make it more season appropriate by looking for long sleeve versions and pair it with skinny pants. Ladies — you too! You’ll have an easy, transitional outfit that will inspire you to get creative with fall trends.
