As the seasons transition, you’ll see the boys do the same with their wardrobes. A suave new approach for guys includes layering to accommodate for Syracuse’s bipolar weather, which varies from gray skies to laying-out-on-the-quad temperatures. Some of the bolder guys, have been pulling out all the stops and dressing to impress. These Fashionistos put a lot of effort into looking sleek from head to toe-,their outfits have a modern twist mixed with old fashioned class. Some favorite pieces worn include skinny ties, tailored blazers, suspenders and retro sunglasses. Exchanging the tailored blazer for a motorcycle jacket will make the look edgier, but keep the classic retro look.
There are quite a few famous heart throbs that have perfected the look, including guys like Ryan Gosling, Joseph Gordon-Levitt and James Dean. This Fashionisto uses their inspiration in his outfit, using black as a base, wearing a boot cut black jeans, a black skinny tie and noticeably shiny black loafers. He brings the look together wearing a navy blazer and bright blue button-down. The touches of blue in his shirt and jacket gives him a pop a color on a sunny day, and keep the outfit from looking to formal or businessy. The retro-inspired black wayfarers give this Fashionisto a suave look, appealing to the old fashioned James Dean edge and style.
This Fashionisto proves that looking tailored is having a come back. Old fashioned class, mixed with modern confidence, this is a look worth trying by more guys on campus. So bravo, Mr. Fashionisto.
Feeling adventurous? Change the look without changing the pieces. Cuff the jeans to about the ankles, nix the blazer and cuff the sleeves of the collar shirt about three-fourths of the way up. The look will have the same sleekness, but with a stronger more noticeable retro feel, plus you can wear and adapt these pieces to somewhat warmer weather.
