STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Add a Splash of Color

Decent men are hard to come by. So when you meet a nice guy who’s got style, you know that he’s a keeper. I first noticed today’s Fashionisto’s trench coat and after giving him the look-over, I knew that I couldn’t let him get away!

This Fashionisto opted for a more simplistic look; pairing his neutral colored trench coat with dark jeans to pull off a more mature look. However, by adding a splash of color in his choice of shoes, this Fashionisto sure as hell didn’t go unnoticed.

Some pieces can be equally as fashionable as they are timeless. The trench coat being one of those. This Fashionisto chose a beige colored one, suggesting that he isn’t afraid to stand out while still being able to be versatile. Beige can go with various colored shirts and different shades of jeans since it won’t compete with the rest of your outfit. Choosing to wear his trench coat with the collar up and a few buttons open, this Fashionisto was well aware that he had style. By pairing his coat with a classic V-Neck gray sweater, this look went from casual to preppy and was an instant win. Cashmere is another alternative that is big this season as it can be the perfect piece for guys to look fashionable on a date or an interview.

Most Fashionistos own a pair of dark jeans as they look good with anything and can be worn during day or night. What really sets this Fashionisto apart though is his choice of footwear. He chose a pair of Vans in a bright shade of red. What I really love about this Fashionisto’s outfit is that his shoes are worn out, and it creates an interesting contrast against the very clean and polished upper half of his outfit. I guess it’s true to always put your best foot forward!

STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: Add a Splash of Color

A stylish summer outfit can be easily pulled together by adding a bold accessory or print to a piece of clothing. Skirts have always been a summer clothing staple, but high-waisted skirts have become more popular than ever and can be used in a casual or dressy environment.

Today’s Fashionista paired a basic top with a high-waisted pink skirt with a floral pattern. She pulled the outfit together with a bright turquoise bag that complimented both the skirt and the top. To finish off her look, she wore a pair of sandals with thin straps that didn’t compete with the bold skirt or purse. I love this look because it screams summer! This Fashionista looked comfortable and ready to take on the hottest weather in Fort Collins. When looking for a high-waisted skirt to be worn during the day, search for an item with a color or print (or both!). If you are looking for a printed skirt with darker colors, try this skirt from Elizabeth and James that can be found on Shopbop, or a something a little bit more colorful like this Anthropologie skirt.
