I've never thought I'd be seen in a patchwork shirt, but I came across this one from Polo and thought I'd give it a try. Without a doubt, it's easy to stay in your comfort zone and stick to the same old styles, so the beginning of a season is the perfect time for change.
The paperboy hat from Zara gives the look a retro feel, and Nuco Cargo pants complements them. But always try to update a retro inspired outfits because it could come off as a costume. I admit, the multi-plaid printed shirt is pretty busy, so I paired it with a Prps vest to break up the print. The hint of burgundy in the shirt looks cool with the burgundy Paul Smith brogues, but brown or hunter green shoes does the job too. My looks are not usually this mature, so I threw on the "Dope" ring and "Blonde Havana" sunglasses to keep it fun and youthful. Now that I think of it, this outfit would of been perfect for an episode of the Cosby Show.
