Our model this month, Jason, like so many guys wants to be comfortable as well as fashionable when it comes to getting dressed. Casual looks don’t have to be sloppy if you take some cues from his fun, preppy look this month. We started with his favorite pair of jeans scored at Goodwill on a recent shopping trip. They’re in a nice dark wash, so they go great with a variety of other items he already had that were also purchased at Goodwill. A plaid, short-sleeved button down shirt ($2.99), in red, white and gray is a good way to up the style factor instead of a t-shirt. It lends the gray O’Neil zip-front hoodie ($7.99) a little more substance too! Completing the look are some Steve Madden trainers in red-and-white ($4.99) and some cool shades ($2.99). When Jason needed some new clothing to fit his slimmed-down frame after diet and exercise resulted in dramatic weight loss, he turned to our well-organized stores to help him pull together a realistic working wardrobe. Not only was it easy on his budget, but it looks great too!
Need help creating the perfect outfit? Here's some AMAZING looks put together by our resident Fashion Expert, Bjorn Nasett. Each month Bjorn chooses two great ensembles (created from items found at Goodwill) and explains exactly how he went about pulling them together!
Kenzie takes a pair of jeans to a more high-fashion place by adding subtle hints of metallic, texture and neutral color in this amazing look. The dark-wash Banana Republic jeans are straight-legged. They’re a nice wardrobe builder and a nice, easy- -to-wear silhouette for $5.99! The beige/brown metallic-flecked sweater in a boucle knit ($5.99) is a great backdrop for layering some more texture over. We chose the fabulous Vera Wang faux-fur vest we scored for $4.99, which suits the season right now. That touch of luxury led us to accessorize this outfit with these Charlotte Russe wedge-heel booties ($6.99) with a gold/metallic embellishment, as well as layering on some classic gold -tone fashion jewelry ($2.99, $3.99) we plucked right out of the case at one of our stores! You really can’t go wrong with layering elements like the ones pictured here. Stylish, sophisticated and accessible is always the way to go!
