shady street style inspirations: a spring fling with soft pastel hues

Soft combination of pastel hues (yellow skinny pants, pink and  blue sweater, beige wool coat and wedge booties) give modern youthful twist to classic tomboyish outfit. And it doesn't hurt to add cat-eye shaped blacked sunglasses for a dash of sassiness. image via Te Amo Moda.

The faded denim jacket, platform sandal, classic cat-eye shaped sunglasses lend a casual, springy effect to an other semi-formal dress. image via Kanon Vodka.

Androgynous effect with a soft grey skull cap, cashmere sweater, and light pink lips with classic Rayban sunglasses.

The true man is not afraid to wear light pink- especially awesome when paired with a refreshing light grey suit counterbalanced with solid mahogany oxfords and sleek black framed glasses. image via Dress Code Boston.

Love this layered A-line shoulder length with a summery slight ombre effect. Baby blue and and peach looks twice as cool with gold framed sunglasses with tortoise shell temples. image via?

Lovely spring outfit for the outfit- sorbet peach silk silk charmeuse blouse paired with structured, slightly starchy white wide trousers, and classic black Chanel chain bag and aviator sunglasses for an additional cool factor. The other chick rocks gold framed aviator sunglasses- a perfect selection for a lady-like outfit of light prints and a red/purple clutch with a gold chain handle. image via Clementine Bay.

This is the ultimate way for a guy to wear pastel hues on a regular, everyday outfit- by pairing subtly light pink sweater and scarf with a solid dark trousers, beige blazer with a subtle plaid print. The classic glasses remind us your all about business. image via the Style Collective

the many shady street styles of: Jesse Williams

image via We Heart it.
He's Rhianna love interest (Russian Roulette), he's a doctor (Grey's Anatomy) and now a college student running from Zombie's in desolate mountains (Cabin in the Woods).  Regardless of what his current status is, his street style is pretty cool. Simple grey slacks, white dress shirt, black oxfords, and classic black frame glasses make one dapper combo.

No need to hide behind those wood-detailed sunglasses. Interesting fact about Jesse Williams: He graduated with a degree in African American Studies and Film &Media Arts from Temple University. Later teaching American Studies, African Studies, and English at a Philadelphia public high school following a brief modeling career in college and before being bitten by the acting bug.

Dapper. Looks like Jesse Williams repurposed his baby blue dress shirt and navy blue blazer for a more formal men's look. If you haven't seen Cabin in the Woods yet, Jesse William's most recent film, GO. Ladies AND Gentleman, you won't regret it.
