When I first started playing on Polyvore, I would share my sets with Dotty. As I was learning the ropes, it was easier to focus on fashion that appealed to me, but it didn’t take long until I was ready to broaden my horizons and have a tutu with some ideas for boys, namely creating a set for my man.
This set was created with a casual theme in mind but also with the idea that the basics could be taken into a night look by swapping out the jersey for a jacket and maybe a change of footwear.
I started with this great pair of faded grey jeans from PRPS Revolver – I like that there is a little bit of edgy detail through rips at pocket corners and fading at the knee, but it isn’t too over the top. I was playing around on the All Saints website (pretty much my favourite online shopping store at the moment; oh how I wish they had a store here in Amsterdam…) and continuing with the grey theme went for this cool Contraire Crew tee which ticks all (my) the boxes in a man’s t-shirt; a print that isn’t too in your face and no legible/obvious text. The fact that it looks a little worn/vintagey is an added bonus.
For the warmth factor of the outfit, I considered adding some colour but decided this was going to be easier through some accessories. So back to All Saints, I love that this Abre Zip Throughcan be worn with the zip open or closed (LOVE the double breasted style zip) and that the cashmere fabric makes it a little dressier/more interesting than your average boys jersey. From the front, the neck area looks like it would be a hood but upon closer inspection, is a gathered collar that adds another element of interesting.
To give this outfit a bit of life, I went for this gorgeous (but manly… definitely manly babe) Stephen Schneider Registration Scarf in yellow and paired it with these Sperry Topsider Shoes, again going for a yellow tone to bring the whole look together.
