Mens Spring Summer Fashion Formula #1: Casually Cool with Color

April 1st, 2009

Feeling the love for this set?  Here’s more information about it.

If you’re in need of a weekend go-to outfit - for use when running errands, shopping the farmers market, or grabbing brunch - we have a casually cool outfit that will fit the bill.  What’s the secret to making this outfit work?  A pop of unexpected color against a backdrop of neutrals.

1.  Start with the basics: a striped tee and a pair of dark rinse, straight leg jeans.  But you can mix things up with a classic with a twist: a pair of grey jeans.
2.  Throw on a shawl collared sweater.  The more textured the sweater is, the better - don’t shy away from chunky knits or interesting weaves. 
3.  Finish off the outfit with a pair of classic sneakers - in an unexpected color.  Notice how the deep crimson of the sneakers really pops against the backdrop of blues and greys.

    Loving your combo! I have to say putting the coloured sneakers with it is a work of genius. Most people tend to forget about shoes when putting an outfit together, but this really proves that it can totally transform an outfit.

    Great work!
