ACCESSORIES REPORT: Dressed Down Dressy

Accessories Report

I don’t know about you, but I love coffee shops. The soft indie music playing, assorted furniture and the smell of a pot of fresh brew are all things that I cherish. At this time of year, they are also usually filled with students studying in the classic jeans and T-shirt combo. So when I saw this Fashionisto, he instantly stood out through putting his own twist on the classic combo. He has mastered the art of dressing down dressy clothing and making for perfect coffee shop wear.

One of the most unique aspects of this outfit is the beanie. Right now, beanies with letters printed on the front are very popular. Celebrities like Rihanna and Cara Delevingne are all rocking them and you can to! A beanie can be used to stylishly dress down any outfit as this Fashionisto shows. Learn from this Fashionisto in making yours unique.

Also, nice shoes don’t always mean dress shoes. These orange Pumas walk the line between dressy and casual. They definitely aren’t your average pair of sports shoes. These Pumas contain the utility of a sports shoe but can be worn with more formal outfits. Next time you buy sport shoes, try to find some that can be used daily but that complement a wide range of outfits. I am also loving the patterned purple shirt and orange shoes color combination making it stand out among the more neutral colors.

Just a fun fact, when asked about what “FYSAD” is, he told me it was a Tumblr blog. He also said it could stand for, “Forget your sadness and dream.” This shows that besides being a unique accessory to his outfit, a printed beanie can also be a conversation starter. Overall, the beanie and untypical orange shoes are a little quirky and fun that show off his personality.  So at your next visit to the coffee shop, feel free to dress up and dress down. You never know whom you’ll end up talking to!
