midweSTYLE: Taste the grainbow

February 28, 2011

It’s still cold here in the Midwest, thus you still have some time to put more mileage of your Red Wings and break them in before they’re reluctantly thrown into their seasonal retirement.

Gentlemen, today we’re going to show how to look manly, outdoorsy, Midwestern or whatever you wanna call it and do it with some life.
Then, add a splash of color.
It never hurts, really.
Just not to your mixed drink or bank account balance.

The pop of the purple and green add a fun element if you don’t want your whole look drowned out with colors of the grainbow.

It wouldn’t be a Midwestyle post without a crotch thrust or slight hip swing. We’re fresh out of college and miss the glory days of impromptu dance parties and the daily shenanigans of slumming around on East Campus. Please bear with us.

WHY THIS LOOK WORKS: This is an easy “Midwestern” look. You’ve got your khakis, your jacket and your boots. You’ve got everything to throw this look together. There isn’t really anything “special” about this look.  Now,  just add some color. We aren’t afraid of that, are we?
CHANGE IT UP: Add a button down with some color to show a little life in the home stretch of this winter season. Come on, you can do it.

thrifted J.CREW XS four-pocket jacket $6.99, J.CREW purple and green button down $12.99, rag & bone m2061555 for $40 in Chicago, Red Wing 8878 boot from Halls for $78, Fossil leather & canvas weekender from the good ol’ Lake of the Ozarks Outlet Mall $60, Timex Camper Watch $18 on amazon
