Inspiration Board: Borrowing From The Boys

Refinery 29 put me on to Street Etiquette, a men’s street fashion blog run by two gentlemen from the Bronx, Joshua Kissi and Travis Gumbs. These guys and the other stylish men they feature on their site have mastered the art of making retro-inspired clothing look current. And their accessories game is on point, too. I love a man who’s not afraid to wear jewelry–and I like the way they wear multiple rings, bangles/bracelets, and necklaces.

Sometimes it’s great to borrow from the men’s department, and I instantly fell in love with this look from photographer Kadeem Johnson, a friend of Street Etiquette. I knew I had to recreate it for the ladies. Only problem, though? It’s very difficult to find a maroon and blue stripe button-down shirt right now (his is vintage). So check out a similar look after the jump.
