Sometimes I treat myself to a lunch at the ultimate department store in London, Harrods. The dinning rooms fill with professional men and women dressed to the nines. I am always impressed by men’s fashion in London, since it is always a perfect ode to runway style. It seems as though everyone is looking sharp no matter the occasion. London’s men have a class about them that begins in their college years. Before students transition to pressed suits and paisley ties, they have created outfits that are just as refined, but more easy-to-wear. I spotted this Fashionisto leaving the tube station on his way to meet some friends. After a day of class, he is still looking handsomely polished.
This student, originally from Sweden, encapsulates the epitome of casual class in an everyday regular outfit. Something as simple as a button-down under a sweater adds a sense of sophistication. Whether it is over jeans or nice slacks, students are prepared for anything from a date to business meeting.
For the men in college, there is a constant battle between balancing student and professional. These go-to outfits are both comfortable and show a different side to you. Simple suede shoes are a perfect addition with jeans to add a slight professional feel on a daily basis, rather than just throwing on some sneakers.
So, gentlemen, if you need an outfit for versatility to impress someone special or your boss, you can’t go wrong with this preppy ensemble. Any sweater will match with a white or even patterned button-down. With summer on the horizon, this is a great outfit to start — a light-weight T-shirt with a V-neck sweater over it. No need to be over the top, keep it simple and classy!
