ACCESSORIES REPORT: Lay Off My Blue Sperry Shoes

Accessories Report

Tis’ the season for papers, projects and finals. Even though summer seems right within reach, most of us students have a lot of studying left to do. Through recent observation, I have concluded that there are two basic types of students. There are those that inhabit the library in their comfy pajamas, and those who remain calm while soaking up the sun outdoors.

This Fashionisto kept it calm, cool and collected wearing a white long-sleeve T-shirt paired with pink shorts. Let’s face it—if you can pull off rhubarb colored shorts, you can pretty much handle anything. He accessorized his laid back outfit with a pair of black wayfarer Ray-Bans. If you’re the type of person who loves these classic shades, but not the expensive price, stores like Target and Forever 21 sell similar sunglasses for under $20.

In addition to his sunglasses, this Fashionisto accessorized with a silver Fossil watch. Besides it looking sleek, wearing a watch while studying is very practical. You’d be surprised how easy it is to lose track of time in the library or while taking an exam. Not only will wearing a watch take your outfit a step up, you will be giving yourself a mini lifesaver in disguise. These minimal accessories are perfect additions that give his look character.

What better way to complement bright shorts than with standout blue boat shoes by Sperry Top-Sider? Boat shoes are to spring as snow boots are to winter. Some might even consider them to be a necessity more than an accessory.

Don’t get too caught up in the stresses of finals. Soon enough you will be final-free and you’re biggest concern will be how to dress during summer heat waves. Leave it to this Fashionisto to show you that playing it cool and simple is the way to go.

Spotted: Band of Outsiders‘ spring 2014 menswear collection styled its looks with boat shoes similar to those worn by this Fashionisto.
