If you're going to pair two colours this spring season, it might as well be black and blue: what makes these two complement each other is the fact that they're just different enough to catch your attention. Blue is a more playful alternative to the good old all-black ensemble—especially during the spring time. This week's Fashionisto is black and blue in all the right proportions, and shows that yes, even men can rock a little pink!
As the days get brighter and the long haul of exams comes to an end, this is what I have to say to all you budding Fashionistos: reflect the extra illumination in the air and play with colour. Colour-blocking is all about picking two or three accents, and making sure they stay the focus of your look. This Fashionista boldly went for a magenta American Apparel hoodie, but kept things a little more formal with a blue, subtly plaid collared shirt and classic black skinnies. Also note that he finished off his attire with casual black sneakers and wayfarers that can only mean one thing: exams are over and summer vacation is undeniably here.
Hint: As the semester draws to a close, mix casual pieces (like sneakers and hoodies) with more polished items to reinforce the fact that even though you may be off for the summer, you still mean business! For all you disappointed girls out there, there's no need to worry: the black and blue trend is as popular with the ladies as it is with the guys. Blue was especially prevalent this year as a fun replacement for the classic LBD.
