A few weeks ago, someone DM’ed me and asked me about where to find some fashion inspiration for menswear. To be honest, I told him “I have no idea…” but followed up by saying that I’ll do some research. While researching, what I realized is that there’s tons of male bloggers out there, sharing their outfits, where they shop, and overall lifestyle. For some reason, the thought that men also need to look good and feel good, never really crossed my mind until that day. So two ideas came to mind. I decided to do another feature on how I would style my wonderful boyfriend, this time for the spring of course. I also decided to make an Instagram account featuring his outfits, because well, there’s tons of men who appreciate looking good and being well dressed! It’s probably my best idea in a while, and I’m looking forward to sharing more of that with you! Keep reading to see what I styled Andrew in for spring!
Andrew has very similar style to me in that he likes to wear basic pieces, he usually likes to wear color, and he likes to layer. He also likes to be comfortable too! He got this green long sleeve t-shirt recently, and you know I love green and blue together so I decided to layer his blue bomber jacket over top. Paired with some dark wash jeans from American Eagle and some comfortable sneakers, and he has his first outfit! It’s comfortable, easy to wear, but still looks put together.
Andrew also got this light tan denim jacket that I absolutely LOVE. It’s such a great piece for him to have and he can take it all the way through fall honestly. I wanted to include at least one totally neutral look, so this one is it. I layered a plain white t-shirt underneath this jacket and paired the same dark wash jeans with it. To keep things light, I decided to pair these lighter brown boots with it. This is definitely my favorite look out of all of them because I love a nice, easy neutral outfit. It’s incredibly flattering no matter what you’re wearing.
I’ve also mentioned several times that I love these half zip sweaters. I think they are super cozy, but still look like you tried to get dressed. Andrew got this one for Christmas, but it’s a good option to throw on as a jacket when it gets warmer in the spring, but you can’t quite go without a jacket. On the bottom, we did these khaki pants from Abercrombie, which I think look so good on him and the same brown boots. This is another neutral look, and it’s a little bit more put together if you needed to wear this to work one day (if you have a casual office of course).
Last but not least, I wanted to add some color again! He found this yellow t-shirt a few weeks ago on sale at Old Navy and I love this color! It’s bright, without being too bright. It’s completely wearable. I thought it would be fun to throw a plaid blue button down over top for an extra layer because I also think blue and yellow look great together. Paired with the same khakis and boots and it’s a super casual, I’m-going-to-sit-at-a-coffee-shop outfit I think. It’s comfortable, casual but you still look like you woke up and put an outfit together.
