Inspired by my latest post “Go Green”, I would like to give you (drum roll)…
“Go Green 2: A day at balboa.”
Look, I get it. Maybe you’re not ready to jump all in, throw on a forest green 3 piece suit and a shiny green jumper coat. I understand. That’s why we decided to highlight this semi-casual look; all about the green accents… And what a better place to shoot than our beautiful Lake Balboa as well as Anthony C. Beilenson Park in Van Nuys, California.
I put this quick look together to inspire you to play with color a bit more in effort to explore your imaginative side. Long gone are the days of black, blue and greys! (Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love what a well-tailored black suit can do for a man. But I’ll save that for another post) Men everywhere are brightening up their wardrobes with color. In terms of livening up ones look, you can’t go wrong with green! Green represents strength, health and growth. Like the many tall and strong trees that wear this color every day, a man in green should be viewed in the same way; Tall, strong, and well grounded. We took this look to the park to show you how adding even just a tad bit of this glorious color to your outfit will make you stand out like a great oak!

With that, the next thing I did was add a pop of color to this semi-casual summer look with the solid green tie and green tinted shades. Notice how the trees make the color pop!
There you have it Gents! Your quick introduction to color. A few key points to remember here:
1: When you want to draw attention to a specific article of clothing in your outfit, make sure to minimize the accessories as to not draw the attention away from the star.
2: When it comes to our friend, the color green, remember that it’s a bold, bright color so less is more. Wearing all green from head to toe is not recommended. That being said, don’t let it scare you either. Take some risk today, with color.
‘Till next time gents. This is Mr. Shipp…signing off!
