STYLE ADVICE OF THE WEEK: When In Doubt, Go Graphic

One of the many exciting aspects of fashion is when you spot someone who so flawlessly pulls off an unexpected wardrobe ensemble that many would not think to put together. When I think of this sense of fashion, I immediately think of the character Carrie Bradshaw on Sex and the City, a style icon who, because of her daring fashion choices, I often heard people respond with an, “Oh my, does she really think that looks good?” while watching. Since Carrie Bradshaw is one of the most renowned style icons of our generation, it really goes to show that style comes from within and only the most fearless Fashionistas/os deserve to be icons.

This Fashionisto exudes individuality from head to toe with a fantastic array of patterns, colors, textures, and accessories to achieve a look that is all his own. He layers a boldly patterned graphic red tee under a blue-toned, plaid button down that is left open with the intention of revealing only subtle detail from each shirt. The combination of both have some serious impact, though. To make the color from his shirts really pop, he wears a black leather jacket over it and a pair of faded-gray skinny jeans with a bit of destruction. His black leather, high-top shoes are not only a perfect finishing touch for his look, but they balance out the contrasting black and gray hues with the vivid reds and blues. To polish off his casual edgy look, he throws on a black beanie and some seriously blinged-out studs. If his unique look doesn’t scream, “This is me, take it or leave it”, I don’t know what does.

Hint: The darker color palette of his overall outfit gives you infinite options for potential layering. Men’s graphic tees come in so many different varieties of colors and patterns, so the possibilities are endless. Another alternative to a button down shirt is a bold zip-up hoodie. Not much is off limits here, folks.
