A windy day was no match for this stylish Fashionisto who appeared on campus battling the unruly weather conditions in an especially cool outfit.
This Fashionisto immediately caught my attention because of his preppy pieces mashed up with edgy accessories. The daring way he paired seemingly classic garments such as a sweater, a structured collared top and blue denim with bad boy accessories was so effortlessly executed.
The leather accessories this Fashionisto incorporated were supplemented in just the right amount. Found in his wrist band and boots, the added leather elements make an otherwise clean-cut ensemble more dimensional and appealing.
The loose fit and distress of the denim he is wearing creates a more casual daytime look — that he could ultimately transition into an unfussy date night outfit. With a quick swap to a darker and more tailored pair of jeans and an optional blazer, this Fashionisto could easily take his look from daytime to evening.
Unlike most men, this Fashionisto was uninhibited to dabble in two different styles of dress. His creativity in combining pieces that others would mistake for mismatched is what makes this outfit so tasteful and well worn. Of course, as Fashionistos and Fashionistas, we know the best way to wear any outfit is with confidence!
Hint: Prep and leather are not the only two styles that can be combined. When getting dressed think to yourself “opposites attract.” Look for accessories or actual apparel items that ordinarily stem from different genres of clothing and combine them for a dynamic effect. Voila!
