UltraViolet – Pantone 2018 Color of the Year

This New Yorker is starting off the year right, sporting the hottest color in the fashion scene, UltraViolet.

Take your street style to the next level by playing around with colors seen recently at Men’s New York Fashion Week. A classic streetwear look of a hoodie and cuffed jeans, paired with a wool coat creates a solid base to add pops of color. At this point, you could add in some UltraViolet socks as seen here or even swap out the gray hat for a more colorful option. These are just a few subtle ways to play around with UltraViolet, but don’t be afraid to go bold!

Outfit Details:

  • Socks – J Crew
  • Coat – Rag & Bone
  • Hoodie – H&M
  • Jeans – Rag & Bone

Two-piece sets create the complete illusion.

Wake up late and don’t know what to wear? Grab your favorite two-piece set for an instant solution.

Matching sets give the illusion of being put-together with minimal effort. If you’re new to wearing a matching set, try a simple pattern like seen here on this knit jogger set. To break up the print or to avoid a monochromatic look, layer with jackets of different textures. A classic leather motto or distressed jean jacket will do the trick. Don’t forget to personalize the look with your favorite accessories. This could mean pom-pom sneakers and fruit bag for some, and a red bandana with Vans for another. Do you.

Modern day classics.

From the bomber to the lace-up boots, this outfit is full of the staple pieces found in almost every New Yorkers wardrobe.

Do you ever find yourself at a loss of what to wear? Take a step back to the basics. Combining closet essentials like white tees and light wash denim is the perfect place to start. Give the look a bit more style by layering with a black bomber jacket. Let a pair of black leather boots walk you from day to night. Transition your look by replacing the bomber with a leather jacket and you’re ready for the NYC night life.

Take your style in retrospect.

Travel back to high school in a classic letterman jacket.

If you weren’t a jock in school, do not fret. Letterman jackets can be found at many retailers or even your local thrift shop. Layer a hoodie that compliments the colors in the jacket, like the white one worn by this New Yorker. Pairing black pants with the black jacket allows the yellow accents to pop. Continue adding pops of color to your outfit, like bright sneakers shown here.

  • Jacket – LA Vintage Find
  • Hoodie – Uniqlo

People like to say that nothing is better than a man in a suit, but I like to argue, nothing is better than a man in a well-tailored suit.

Whether you’re tailoring your pants to rock the skinny leg trend or adjusting arm-pocket seams fit just on top of the shoulder, tailoring is vital to looking your best in a suit.

Aside from tailoring, my second piece of advice when wearing a suit is to make it your own.   In a large city, thriving with businessmen, stand out by going for an all over plaid print or even opting for a color outside of your neutral comfort zone. Get inspired by this New Yorker, trade in your penny loafers for some leather combat boots. He further proclaimed is personal style with a studded belt. If belts aren’t your thing, watches can also add a unique touch.

Denim on denim, the New York way.

Layering denim can be a bit tricky. Do you wear the same wash on top as you do on the bottom? Do you mix acid wash with a solid jean? Should denim on denim be worn at all?

The answer is YES.

One of the easiest ways to pull off this look is to layer two different shades of denim like this New Yorker. The light wash denim jacket offers a high contrast to the black jeans. Pair with your favorite shirt, like this tie dye one, and some combat boots.

But most importantly, when playing around with trends like denim on denim, remember that there are not any rules to fashion, so just have fun!

Back to the basics.

Wardrobe staples are a must and can even be paired together for a classic look. Cuff the bottoms of your comfy tan jeans to make your white sneakers pop. Trend alert! White sneakers are the easiest way to make a subtle statement in today’s fashion worlds. Take a tip from the casual Friday playbook, go ahead and layer a denim jacket over a crisp white polo. If you’re itching to make more of a statement, opt for pinstripe denim like this New Yorker did here!

Wait there’s more..

Finish off the look by tying a sweater of your choosing around the waist. Now you not only look complete but a bit more stylish too.
