Accessories Report

Here at Penn we have a little Tumblr page dedicated to students wearing salmon shorts on campus. This rather hysterical website features dozens of candid photos of students rocking the trendy colored shorts. It’s amazing how often people get caught wearing salmon shorts! Although there are opposing opinions on this trend, as there is for everything, there’s no doubt that this mens staple is quite popular here on campus. But how often do you get to see salmon jeans, the even bolder cousin of the salmon shorts?

I myself rarely do, and that’s why this Fashionisto considerably stood out to me. If salmon shorts were the epitome of cool, then this would have to be nothing less, considering it is literally an extension of the shorts. This Fashionisto’s overall outfit is simple yet stylish as he pairs neutral, faded colors with solid brown accents. His white V-neck contrasts the faded look of the denim so that both of the articles stand out on their own. Continuing with the laid back, effortless look, he sported a worn leather belt, and brown Sperry Top-Sider boat shoes to match. These accessories blend in with the color tones of the jeans.

One of my favorite things about his outfit is his hipster glasses, which I find very cute and quirky. Recently hipster glasses have come back in style and are usually characterized by over-sized, black frames. Instead of the stereotypical artsy frame, this Fashionisto wore a pair of light brown rims, differentiating himself from the rest of the so-called hipsters. I personally also prefer brown frames because they still stand out while remaining subtle.

Spotted: Ray-Ban, Prada, Tory Burch and Gucci include both the classic black and the more innovative brown frames in their Fall 2012 designs.
