We're into guys in pastels. The sweet pale shades make dudes look so kind-hearted! Luckily, Spanish menswear designer Armand Basi is on the same page. His S/S 08 collection has loads of pale pinks and demure baby blues, but our favorite ensemble is this faded pink, white, and blue tie-dyed t-shirt with matching jeans. Of course, we don't recommend wearing this look head-to-toe, but one piece with an otherwise neutral outfit is great. The look also has an unexpected bonus for guys with girlfriends, girl friends, or girl roommates: We definitely wouldn't mind borrowing those jeans and wearing them with a black tank. Thanks in advance! --ALISON COOL
