As much I love fashion and working in the industry, sometimes I just want to step and be like “lol guys it’s not that serious.” I’m always down for some fun, even if it means picking up this Looney Tunes hoodie from my favorite thrift store. Even scrolling through my own instagram there are a lot of pictures of my in neutral colors giving a mean mug. That being said, I decided to switch it up for y’all. Since the sweatshirt is the highlight I wanted to style around it in a casual streetwear look. I’m also working on smiling more since it’s free, ya know.
I have several sartorial allegiances. By glancing at the blog you can tell those include: my commitment to wearing hats 95% of the time, dedication to a cozy boy lifestyle and finally my love of monochromatic outfits. As for the last part if I’m not in all black I tend to be in all blue even though I just discovered how wonderful camel looks on my skin tone. (More on the latter in another post.) I’ve mentioned it time and time again, but the key to nailing this look is making sure your hues work with each other and doesn’t look like you tried to go with one tone and you missed the nail on the head. For this specific look, I added to white accents to make it look a little lighter. It also doesn’t hurt that I’m dressed like I belong in a Gentry lookbook.
At this point I’m trying to trying to take my rightful position as captain of the Cozy Boy Committee. (Can we make this a real thing?) While I created this blog initially to encourage young men to get up and get dressed, I’ve obviously abandoned those goals with looks like this. So here’s the thing: there’s a HUGE different between looking like a Cozy Boy and a Lazy Boy. (Not to be confused with those comfortable chairs.) With any outfit you never want to look sloppy. This is particularly important if you’re going for a laid back look. Whether you’re going super slouchy or very tapered make sure the fit and proportions are on point. Personally I channeled my grandpa in this robe, sweater, and pant ensemble. I don’t suggest any of this for a first date or big interview, but it’s perfect for the weekends rolling in and out of bed.
