When a Fashionisto is just trying to get to class and get it over with, he’ll be content with whatever he puts on. After walking through campus, the mall and restaurants, I’ve noticed that Fashionistos will throw on a pair of basketball shorts, a plain T-shirt, a baseball hat and sneakers (most likely a pair of basketball sneakers). Well boys, it’s time to start thinking outside the box. Enter your closet and instead of doing the norm of throwing on whatever, just do what this Fashionisto did. You can be content and comfortable with a pair of black pants, a jacket and an appealing sweater.
Now, when you arrive to class and you are trying to get that cute girl’s number, she can’t miss you. You won’t look like a typical college male student. If you are really going to start thinking outside the box, changing up a few accessories will do more than you think. Instead of wearing a baseball hat, try a beanie like this Fashionisto. This Fashionisto matched his beanie perfectly to his dark toned outfit (the blue sweater adds a nice little pop of color). You can purchase a slouchy beanie from most stores, but if you want to add a pop of color somewhere else in your outfit, try this beanie from Urban Outfitters. Continuing outside the box, instead of a pair of basketball sneakers, this Fashionisto wears a pair of authentic Vans.
Now, when a Fashionisto runs into his closet looking for clothes to wear, don’t be so typical and wear something that is right in front of your face. Take your time and think to yourself, do I look different?
