One of the major advantages of going to school in an inner city is that there’s always something to do. We have it all in Richmond – from cultural festivals to funky independent boutiques, numerous sports teams and concert venues, there are so many different ways to explore the city with your friends.
Hanging out with friends might be a laid back affair, however. A true VCU Fashionista/o always keeps in mind that they’re living in the style capital of Virginia. Ditch the graphic tees and jeans and show off your signature style like this Fashionisto did.
To recreate this look, start by pulling out your favorite chambray button-down shirt. The weather in March is anything but predictable in Richmond, so layer a cardigan over this look to add extra warmth when necessary. Leave those dreary jeans and chinos at home and opt for a printed pant. This Fashionisto’s camo pant was funky yet rugged.
You’ll want to wear a comfortable yet durable shoe while adventuring in the city with your friends, so add a pair of Timberlands to this eccentric ensemble. Finish off this look with a bold accessory. For the more daring Fashionistos, add a statement pin to your cardigan. For our gentlemen who are a bit more on the conservative side, pair a classic watch with this ensemble.
One Simple Change: Need to tone down this look for a long day of classes? Swap out the camo pants with a pair of dark denim. The contrast between the light chambray shirt and the dark jeans will create a fun and funky denim-on-denim look.
