Sam’s style | Neutral layers with a pop of red

If you saw the Style Imitating Art round-up for Erin’s final curated challenge for SIA, then this outfit of Sam’s will be familiar to you. He put this look together himself for the challenge — with no help from me! — and I think it’s a good example of how to layer casual pieces together for a stylish yet still casual men’s look.

Sam layered a red argyle sweater over a basic dark grey tee, then layered a light grey zip-up sweater over that. The two shades of grey create visual depth, and the pop of red peeking through is just so dynamic, isn’t it? The black jeans ground the entire look, and the textured slip-on sneakers are fun and casual, and add a bit more pattern to the entire look. As I’ve said before on this blog, Sam has master-level pattern-mixing skillz.

I just love the photo above of Sam cracking up while I take photos for once. One reason is because he is ALWAYS trying to crack me up when he’s taking photos of me. Another reason is because it’s very true to Sam’s personality. And finally, it shows a peek of his “man bun,” which Sam did specially for me, as I really like it when he puts his hair up into a man bun. (He has curly hair, so that hair style just works on him!) I also like that you can see the streaks of grey on the sides of his hair — the grey streaks go with his grey clothing, hah! 😉
